Has anyone ever tried any self-imposed challenges in any Pokemon games? Nuzlockes, monotypes, or any other type of restriction you place on yourself to make the game more difficult. Right now I'm doing a Nuzlocke of Platinum. It's the first time I've attempted a challenge and honestly, it's not that much more challenging - though I'm still before the second badge and I'm grinding a lot to be cautious (though still reasonably leveled - I was 14 for the first gym when I'm usually 11-12). Criticals terrify me though.
