where do you come up with your nicknames
So, I had this idea prior to challenging the Elite 4 to try to make this run more interesting for Kanto, but since the Time Capsule doesn't actually work the way I hoped it would, I'm gonna save it for when Pokémon Crystal comes out instead.Basically, upon reaching Vermilion City, a new extension to the rules would be added that would allow for alternative encounters involving the Time Capsule. In these games, it's possible to send Pokémon from the first generation over to the second—you just need to trade over something that actually existed during Gen I, and you could carry your team from Red, Blue, or Yellow over to the next gen.In doing this, the Gen I Pokémon you carry over may be carrying some kind of rare or valuable item that cannot be obtained through any other means. Somehow, I never took much advantage of this feature as a kid, even though I would've had a lot of fun with it—so I came up with this idea.Basically, after beating the Elite 4, my Silver challenge would be put on hold. Then, I would start a new challenge with the same exact ruleset on a fresh Pokémon Yellow file (or Red, or Blue. Doesn't really matter). Once I've completed that Yellow challenge, I could resume playing Silver and make my way through Kanto.This is where the rule extension comes in. Basically, for every area in Silver's Kanto that has a parallel in Yellow's Kanto, I can either walk around in the grass and encounter something normally, OR, alternatively, I can invoke Time Capsule Clause.This is a clause that allows me, for every new area, to trade with my previously completed Pokémon Yellow file. This will serve as my one encounter, but the interesting thing is this—the only thing I'm allowed to trade is the Pokémon I found on that specific route in my previous file. So, for example—if, in my Yellow nuzlocke, I found a Magnemite on Route 9, I can THEN sacrifice my one encounter on Route 9 in my Silver nuzlocke, once I actually reach that route. From there, I won't be able to get anything else as normal.It's totally fair, too, since Time Capsule trades are indeed trades—I'm not gaining Pokémon through this method. I'm losing one and then gaining one. This idea not only promotes variety, but also gives me an opportunity to use a feature I overlooked as a kid, and potentially use some Pokémon I otherwise would never be able to in a nuzlocke, like Golem, Alakazam, Machamp, and Gengar, because I don't typically allow trade evolutions.This was a great idea, and I was prepared to do it immediately after beating the Elite 4—but unfortunately, it hinged upon the idea that I only needed one 3DS with both Yellow and Silver on it to actually use the Time Capsule. As it turns out, you do in fact need two 3DSs with two separately-purchased copies of the two games loaded onto them.That's not how it was advertised at all, but whatever.I'm such a shill for Pokémon anyway, that when Crystal comes out, I'll probably end up buying another 3DS. I kinda want a new one anyway, and I'll purchase Crystal on that machine while using my Yellow file on my old device. I'm making this happen, but it's just a matter of time before the game actually comes out.

Has Crystal even been hinted at/confirmed?
