There's a different way to play Pokemon that's gotten very popular recently. You've probably heard of it. It's called a Nuzlocke Challenge. The idea is to do a self-imposed "Hard Mode" of Pokemon games, using special rules. The rules can be applied to any main Pokemon game (eg. Ruby, Blue, etc.), and go like this:
1) Any Pokémon that faints is considered dead, and must be released. 2) The player may only catch the first Pokémon encountered in each area, and none else. If the first Pokémon encountered faints or flees, there are no second chances. It's fairly common to nickname all caught Pokemon as well.
You can also add additional rules if you wish, such as not using any healing items or not going to the Pokemon centre.
I invite you all to give it a try and perhaps post about your exploits here.
"The point isn't to beat the game. It's about having fun. That's why it's called the "Self-Proposed Hard Mode", what kind of hard mode would it be without a way to lose? A lot of us had fun beating the actual games. And a lot of gamers play games for the Challenge- I would often challenge myself in Pokemon by vowing not to use any Pokemon I had used in the past, and by fighting the E4 when massively underleveled.
Challenges are what make games fun for a lot of us." - Gooman

Hmm. I guess there's no choice but to get another Pokemon. It shouldn't happen most of the time, though.
I just realized something. It IS possible to lose in pokemon completely.
You get one pokemon right off the bat. But this pokemon can't learn all the HM moves. To get ones that can, you need to catch them. To catch them, you need pokeballs. To get pokeballs, you need money. If you buy too much of the wrong things, lose matches, and run out of trainers to fight, you could lose all of your money and be unable to get more pokeballs -> a pokemon to learn the HM -> the ability to use the HM.

Cogsworth: Ryan Reynolds is Detective Pikachu. Also, there's a live action Detective Pikachu film in the works.

Jacio: I'd like to think that this is some kind of continuity where Hal Jordan falls from grace and becomes Deadpool, who then uses his 4th wall abilities to just literally become a Pikachu
