Alright, time to start a Nuz-

This here isn't Pokemon, is it?

Nope, definitely not a Pokemons

After all, does Pokemon have DINOSAURS?

...alright, fine, BUT DOES IT HAVE DINOSAURS THIS BEAUTIFUL

I SHOULD THINK NOT.

THIS IS MONSTER HUNTER, BABY.

Today we lay witness to an exercise in how far one can contrive something to be a nuzlocke, as I stretch the rules to apply them to one of my favorite games this year, Monster Hunter Stories, or as you could arguably call it, Monster Hunter Pokemon, a game about raising and befriending an eclectic collection of murderous monsters and turning them into your personal elite guard to beat down anything before you.

To those of you unfamiliar with Monster Hunter, it is at surface level extremely simple - you hunt monsters - it's just that there are a stupidly massive number of layers of complexity, weirdness, and complex weirdness beneath that. I'll get into some of that weirdness as we progress, but for the time being, what you need to know is that Stories is a spinoff of the main series of the real time action games, and is of surprising quality.

Now, let's get into the rules, shall we?

Da Rules


Now, we begin.
