Papermonkey's 'Nuts Lock' part 13 by Paperiapina Papermonkey's 'Nuts Lock' part 13 by Paperiapina
Rules and stuff:
[link] << Previous pagething * Next pagething >> [link]


My Nuzlocke adventure continues! Been a while, hasn't it?

Nothing too big or interesting this time I guess, but dang it felt good to get to draw the guys again.

Poor Max, his status as the number one 'mon got challenged. But seriously, Fantina's gym left Osamu just a pixel on EXP bar away from hitting level 30, so the first thing that he fought on the next route and POOF! I got myself a luxray. (Actually Molla was one level ahead of Max too, but don't tell that to him.)

Really, though. I imagine training to get stronger is waaaaay easier for the rock types in those caves than for the zubats that really can't do anything to fight back. Rock is super effective against flying after all.

Visiting the graveyard tower reminded me how lucky I've been on this run, only losing one pokémon so far. Not for the lack of trying, though. The game has given me a fair share of heart attacks, but I guess my paranoid grinding has paid off. At least so far. Let's see how far I can get without losing another buddy.

Oh, and on names again, Kuiske is Finnish for something like "whispers/whispering".

I have no idea why I've never used Return before. I mean it's an attack that can have 102 in base power, and adding STAB (Same Type Attack Bonus, meaning pokémon using a move that's the same type as the 'mon itself gets the move's power boosted by 50%) it's THE strongest attack there is on the whole team at the moment. Sweet, sweet destructive power.
(Also Päike is clearly a Molla fangirl.)

Pancaaaaakes!

The way you handle Roger's anatomy is amazing. Every time I try to draw a crobat, I can't even finish the face. Maybe, if you're not busy, you could post a short tutorial on how you go about drawing Roger?

I think that Molla should wear the soothe bell to ensure maximum Return power!
Also I love the way you draw pokemon, realistic (and fluffy) but at the same time respecting the pokemon's original dimentions :) I love it! I hope you draw more

That's actually pretty coincidental (unsure spelling is unsure), in one of my games, my Luxray grew a higher level than my prinplup and it still is.

Small translation recommendation btw :

When Molla says "Oh, yes ! That would be very happy."

I think you mean, "Oh, yes ! That would make me very happy."

Yay! More nuzlocke! This comic inspired me to try a nuzlocke run of my own on Diamond, but... it didn't go anywhere near as well as yours has. My chimchar got KO'd in the very first trainer fight, and everything proceeded to go downhill after that, until I eventually gave up. Sinnoh is clearly just not my region.

Reminds me of the time I went to challegers cave. One second I was full of post-win euphoria, the next I was hit in the face with force palm by a slap happy fighting type. Also, if you ever get a lucky egg, don't use it on just one pokemon. One game I did that, and my serperiour was level 48 before the second town. Not the case with everyone else. As a closing statment to this ramble, I realized that paike is the reverse of Blitzen the cowardly blitzle.

Woopwoop! So happy when I saw you were still doing this. Was half-worried you'd lost the inspiration when you started back at school again.

And yeah, so nothing much happens in these set of panels... Still awesome :) and you're getting better and better at drawing Roger. I never actually WANTED a zu/gol/crobat before but now I needs one :D

Hitto is a mild Finnish swearword. I don't actually know if it has a meaning beyond being a word to curse with.

I've missed your Nuzlocke pages and was delighted to find such a large one. Makes me feel like playing pokémon, but the real game doesn't get anywhere close to your epic Nuzlocke journey. :D

Lol, did you draw this page while you were hungry? Loved the surprise of an evolved Osamu (fluffy kitty with claws :) ) and the bit about Roger's "backstory" was an excellent idea. Are you possibly going to do similar for other members of your epic team?
Also, I forgot about Miisa... such a long, long time ago, and only 3 panels.
Looking forward to the next few pages of adventure ^-^

Oh wow. I just found your comic. After reading all of what you have I can easily say this has become one of my instant FAV Nuzlockes! It's so amazing! You're art is incredible and I love how you draw all of the Pokemon. You make them so cool looking. And each and every team member is great personality wise. There isn't a single one I don't love to death. (Especially Osamu. He's so freakin' cute! :heart:)
So, I just wanted to let you know how much I've enjoyed your Nuzlocke. I can't wait to see what's ahead and will be waiting ever eagerly for the next update. Thank you for such a gem of a comic!

Oh, hey, I'd nearly forgotten about this!

... Roger is nearly useless now, isn't he? I mean, Paiku can take care of Grass-types, and Roger doesn't know any Poison-type attacks he can get the STAB from. The only other useful move he knows, Crunch, is also known by Osamu. The only thing he is really useful now is Fly and Defog.

Paperiapina Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2012  Student General Artist
Roger is still the best thing in the team to deal with fighting types, and there are poison attacks that he can learn too. I'm planning to teach him Cross poison when I get to Move relearner, and Sludge Bomb is also a possibility. (Also playing with the idea of finding a move tutor and teaching him Heat wave, but that remains to be seen.)

Combak Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2012
You'll have to wait until after the Champion to teach him Heat Wave...

And I'll admit, I'd forgotten about Fighting-types. Although, if you swapped him out for the Gastly...

Quick fun fact: Return is actually not the original name for the move. In the Japanese versions of the games, it's known as Return Favor.

Love your comic! Good luck! :dummy:

I'm playing with the "Nuxlocke" rules, which mean that if a Pokémon faints in the game, it's considered dead and will be deleted from the game. I lost my second catch (a bidoof named Miisa) early on in the game. The incident is drawn here: [link]

Neinna-Maranwe Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It isn't really an option, but something players choose to do. If a Pokemon faints, you just refuse to use it again, most people release it. Makes the game harder and more realistic.

In the game my Poketch thingy has an app to check feelings of the team pokémon, and Molla was showing two hearts in it. She can do some nice damage already (and she still has Hyper fang to back it up).
