Archer's Sacred Gold N-locke!  
Several people around the web have tried to put together rules for an N-locke. Here's mine.

1. STANDARD LOCKE RULES. If a Pokémon faints, it is boxed, no exceptions. All Pokémon must be nicknamed. Only catch the first Pokémon you see on a given route.
2. After the first Gym battle, select one of the Pokémon on your team and make it your "partner". This Pokémon is now your buddy for life.
3. Box all Pokémon on your team aside from your partner. Not release -- box.
3a. This is treated as returning the Pokémon to their natural home.
4. Continue catching one Pokémon per route until you defeat the second Gym, at which point you release all Pokémon except for your partner again.
5. If your partner dies, tough luck. You're not just going to replace them, are you?
6. For the Elite Four and Red battles, you may call back your friends from their homes (that is to say, take them out of the box) and make a team out of them.
7. The game is over when Red is defeated.
