So... There's a few people playing Pokemon again. And since I got a 'new' Pokemon game and already started. I might as well do the same as some of people. Pokemon Mild Mode!

Wait, Mild mode? Please.
Aldente Mode

Rules are pretty much the same as Hard mode, aside for a few edits.
-If a Pokemon in your party faints, TWO HOUR PENALTY (GAME TIME)
-Every time you reach a new route, cave, etc., you must catch the very first Pokemon you see THAT YOU DONT ALREADY HAVE
-If you fail to catch the first Pokemon you see, either via it fleeing, knocking it out, or having no Pokeballs, you may not catch another. Tough shit.
-If a town you go to contains a body of water or a gift Pokemon, that may be considered a Pokemon of a new area.
-If your entire party faints, FOUR HOUR PENALTY (TWO GAME, THEN TWO REAL). If you have a pokemon left in a box somewhere, you may continue with only a two hour penalty for those Pokemon.
-Treat pokeballs as rare artifacts; at no point can you buy more than one from each store. You should only use ones you find in the wild or are awarded.
-You are allowed LIMITED use items outside of battle. 2 HEALING ITEMS AND ONE STATUS ITEM. If you were poisoned on your last turn of the battle, you better hope to god theres a pokemon center nearby.
-You are only allowed TEN MINUTES at a time in a location to train ("power-level") your Pokemon.
-You are, under no circumstance, allowed to get a second pokemon from any given area.
-You may not switch out before the enemy trainer sends in a new Pokemon.
-You are not allowed to use legendaries in battle.

Rules I'm not going to follow
-This means you can not catch a pokemon in a route you were in before you could catch pokemon. So no route 1, you were there before you had pokeballs.This is a stupid rule.
-You must nickname your pokemon so there is some sort of attachment. Each pokemon is a best friend to you, to see them die is heartbreaking.Nicknaming Pokemon is stupid. Except maybe your starter. That's a real connection
-If your pokemon is 4 levels higher then the pokemon you are fighting then you are not allowed to attack with that pokemon. (Wild pokemon only. Legendary pokemon acts like a trainer fight.)This is simply a non-power leveling measure. I won't be excessively power leveling. Unless maybe right before Elite 4.

I'd like to make a few exceptions for the "catching Pokemon clause." I'm gonna exempt 3 Pokemon from this. Skarmory, Swinub and Heracross.

Let's see how this goes...
