I do not take any credit for this image, but it is a very easy way to explain the basic rules of the Nuzlocke Challenge:
(click the spoiler to see it)
Spoiler:
 




Other rules that should be / are generally used:
No breeding
Always knock out legendaries
You can use event Pokémon (by this I mean the eevee you get from Bill in Gold, or the Eevee you can get in Celadon City in the 1st gen)
You can catch the first pokémon on a route/area that you haven't caught before (this way you won't end up with 50 bidoof or whatever) If a Pokémon dies, you still can't catch another one of it.
If you white-out (lose all Pokémon in one battle), Game Over.




Additional Rules to make it harder:
No items
Either no Pokémon Centre visits or limited amount of visits (like once per town)
Only catch Pokémon if you don't already have 6 (so no spare Pokémon in the PC)
Don't use your starter



The point of this is to make Pokémon games more of a challenge. I hope some of you will take up this challenge, and will use this thread to post about your journey. I plan on uploading a nuzlocke of probably Pokémon Platinum to the forum's youtube channel, which should be entertaining.

I'm gonna post my current HeartGold Nuzlocke:

Badges: 8
Currently grinding for Elite Four

Team:
Steve the Piloswine (Lv 42)
Jeremy the Fearow (Lv 41)
Sam the Sandslash (Lv 43)
Caesar the Rapidash (Lv 44)
Gary the Tauros (Lv 44)
Hannibal the Feraligatr (Lv 44)
and Daisy the Dratini (Lv 24) in training

Lost in Battle:
Bellatrix the Bellsprout (Lv 6-16)
Nancy the Nidorina (Lv 12-23)
Julius the Magnemite (Lv 16-19
Kristian the Koffing (Lv 14-22)
George the Graveler (Lv 3-27)
Rachel the Raticate (Lv 3-34)


So far I have suffered most of my losses to critical hits, excluding George, who was killed by a wild Miltank that used Bide when I used Rollout. Rachel was finally defeated after trooping from the start by Pryce. The rest were all in training when defeated, except Bellatrix who was part of my team.

Hopefully my team will be able to take down the Elite Four in memory of my lost pokes, who will never be forgotten Sad

Ra, if you read it properly, you'll see that it says: Additional Rules to make it harder

That doesn't mean I'm using them.

Here are the rules im following and my progress so far.
1. You may only capture the first Pokemon you encounter in each new area you explore(if you faint the first Pokemon you may not catch another one.)
2. If one of your Pokemon faints, you must release it(if it faints, it ‘dies’)
3. You must nickname all your Pokemon.
4. No breeding.
5. Always knockout Legendaries.
6. You can use event Pokemon(this means the Eevee you get from Bebe is Platinum.)
7. You can catch the first Pokemon on a route/area that you haven’t caught before (this way you won’t end up with like 50 bidoof or something, if a pokemon dies you can’t catch another one of it.)
8. If you white-out, (if all Pokemon faint in battle,) Game Over.
9. Only catch Pokemon if you don’t already have 6 (so no spare Pokemon in the PC.)

Team
Mach-Pyro the Monferno Lv29
Shara the Luxio Lv26
Dr. Duck the Psyduck Lv26
Gravball the Graveler Lv25
