Papermonkey's 'Nuts Lock' part 14 by Paperiapina Papermonkey's 'Nuts Lock' part 14 by Paperiapina
Rules and stuff:
[link] << Previous pagething * Next pagething >> [link]


Wait, what happened? I was supposed to do something completely different, and suddenly it’s 3 AM and I have three pages of Pokémon. Whoa.

Roger demonstrates how efficient the packaging of folded wings is, a wild headache appears, and not much else really.

Wonder why it is, that every time I encounter and catch an unown in Pokémon games, it's always the D-shaped one. Always. (Too bad they can only learn one move, it would be fun to draw more of it.)

And on names again, Dee is pretty obvious, Bala was a random name that happened to pop in my mind with no origin story beyond that, and Sulka is Finnish for feather.

I absolutely adore how you draw Roger. Do you think you could maybe post a tutorial on how you go about drawing a crobat?

How do you decide how long to keep a character injured? Like Roger just now got better, but when Molla lost an eye, she came back almost at once. Looks great! ^w^

Great job on your nuts lock! It has been very entertaining and enjoyable to read. I love all the emotions you draw in everything! :>

Good to see a new nuzlocke page. :)
I have a question about something I wondered about as someone not familiar with the pokemon games, something I read somewhere on an earlier comment... What is a "HM Slave" (or what it is called)?
Reply
:iconpaperiapina:
Paperiapina Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2013  Student General Artist
HMs are moves you can teach your pokémon that you need in order to progress in games (like to remove or cross specific obstacles from your way to places you need to go). Since HMs are actual Pokémon moves that can be used in pokémon battles too, they take up a slot on the pokémon's move pool (each pokémon can only know up to four moves at a time), but most HM moves are really weak in battle, so it can be inconvenient to have lots of HM moves in your pokémon's move pool since they can prevent it from learning something more useful or strong. That's why some people keep a pokémon that's only meant for having HM moves. Only knowing HM moves and not anything stronger makes them weak for battles, but it saves the rest of the battling pokémon in the team for having to restrict their move choices.

Umh, I hope I explained it in an understandable way.

That's actually pretty much how real bat wings work, they bend pretty much the same way. Except that pterosaur-style wrist joint between elbow and fingers, that's joinked from, well, pterosaurs.
Reply
:iconpistachiofox:
PistachioFox Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Indeed, that's what caught my attention! That wrist joint was really unexpected.
And I didn't know pterosaurs had that wrist joint, I thought their wings had basically the same joints as bird's ones do ^^;

Always nice to learn new things from you, Paper c:

:iconpaperiapina:
Paperiapina Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2013  Student General Artist
Yeah, at least some pterosaurs (the bigger ones) have wings that are like a cross breed between giraffe legs and actual wings. They were apparently even good at running on all fours! Nature knows how to be amazing.

Aww, thanks!

I've been trying out some nuzlocking myself lately and also scouted for some comics while waiting for your next update. So far I haven't even found one single nuzlocke comic that comes anywhere near yours. Keep up the good work on Nuts Lock, Wurr and your very own species, I love them all and am always waiting eagerly for new updates from you!

The two Nuzlocke comics (first ones I ever stumbled across) that got me interested in making my own were made by ~pettyartist (she's got two, I first read the LeafGreen one. It starts pretty messy, but gets progressively better) and *ky-nim. Then there's the Emerald version Nuzlocke by *ShadeofShinon that I follow, and I think I should go back to catch up with *YinDragon's FireRed kick@$$ mode, I seem to have forgotten to bookmark it. Then there's "Burning Bridges" by *wanlingnic that takes the story part of Nuzlocke comics to a whole new level (also the art is nice to look at) and my own current personal favourite: Robin's Emerald Nuzlocke by *Mewitti. I just LOVE the art of that one, and it's active with its updating too.

I was on a mission to capture all of the Unknown in one of my games, don't remember which, and I think I had gotten almost 20 or so. But I think I had restarted that game for some reason. I had them all written down too, wish I knew where that paper was.

"bala" means "bullet" in Spanish, so that's what I thought of :I

:iconpaperiapina:
Paperiapina Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2013  Student General Artist
Aww, thanks!

Didn't know that, though I'm completely okay with the extra meaning too. One of the dangers of making up fantasy names is that unless they are something really long and complex, they probably mean something in some language you don't know. (I remember giggling as a kid when one of the fiercest warrior elves in the Elfquest comics was named Kahvi, meaning coffee in my language.)

:iconnekonotaishou:
nekonotaishou Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2013  Student Filmographer
True that!

Lol, 'coffee'! I would have giggled at that, too!

It's funny to stumble upon a character that has an intense design, but their name accidentally conjures up stuff like "fat belly" in another language. It's almost like a private joke.

I don't think there are rules for breeding in Nuzlockes. Depends on the run and/or player I guess. Probably not going to use it myself, though.
