Papermonkey's 'Nuts Lock' part 4 by Paperiapina Papermonkey's 'Nuts Lock' part 4 by Paperiapina
Rules and stuff:
[link] << Previous pagething * Next pagething >>[link]


And another episode of my Nuzlocke adventure! First gym badge and the first evolution! 8D Yay!

And we get to see a bit of team Galactic for the first time. And they make quite a first impression. On my bidoof's face. REVENGE AHOY!

Seriously though, that fight was tough. Lucas's chimchar literally never even moved, the both of the Galactic 'mons attacked it, and made it flinch on the only turn it would've had, and boom. My Molla was left to fight alone against two. I have no memory at all about what the prof or anyone said after the fight, I was just speeding through the dialogue ("Shut up, shut up, my bidoof is poisoned, antidote now!") but I think it was nothing important.

I don't hate any species of Pokémon, I like them all, but I still never would have thought that getting that close to losing a BIDOOF of all things would be so heart wrenching.

And speaking of the incident, I figured that if Pokémon could die on this run, there's nothing keeping them from getting permanently injured either.

Roger the zubat was named after the movie Who Framed Roger Rabbit since it was on TV when I caught him in game.

Fun fact, look at Osamu, the shinx on the fift panel of the last page. That thing rolling on the flowers and purring. His in-game ability is Intimidate. He INTIMIDATES other pokémon in fight to lower their attacks.

Your Bidoof is.......good lord, she's legit. I don't hate them either, but I never knew I could like them so much at the same time. I had one Bibarel with a personality, Huxley the lady. All the others were total derps, as evidenced by their names:

Dooberderp (3 chins)
6 Chin
HM Slave
HM Bro

Eeeeyup. :P

I am loving this comic! One thing, though: If you get into a pokemon battle and all of the pokemon on your team 'die,' then what do you do? I know that one of your rules was, "If it faints, it's dead," or something like that, and I was just wondering how that worked.

I really hope I won't lose my entire team at once! But in case it happens, it's either continuing with what IO have on the PC, or game over. I don't know which one to go with yet, but I really hope I won't have to choose.

Yeah geez, wouldn't that be horrible to have to start all over? Especially since you have Auri! Shinies are so hard to come by XD But yeah, I'm rooting for you, and I hope you don't have to choose! Knock that Team Galactic dead!

Im loving this series, nuzlockes can be so nerve-racking you get so attached to those little pixels. In my current one I am about to take on the Elite 4 for the second time in Soul silver and I am over leveling like crazy for fear of loosing any of my team. Id be so upset if you lost any of your guys Wolf.

You know, I never thought about pokemon having scars or permanent damage. In the games the pokemon center magically seems to cure everything, and in the anime I guess they avoided violence because of the children, but in retrospect that's really unrealistic. . .
(Molla looks pretty badass with that scar, though.)

I haven't touched any of my old pokemon games in over four years, but after reading these I really wanna dig them up and play again. :)
Keep up the good work and good luck for the rest of the game!

Ps. Molla looks rather badass with her new battle scar. :)

Another fun fact: 'Osamu' would be the Japanese interpretation of the english word "awesome" XDD Would be fitting if Osamu survives to evolve to his last form.

I lost my Shinx, Sirius, to that battle. I was all my fault, though. I wasn't watching, and kept mashing the "a" button. =,(

I'm glad Molla lived. =3

These are amazing, I never thought Pokemon could be so dramatic (in the non-childish way), keep them up! :)
Also you encouraged me to start playing too, FireRed because I'm old school. (Not nuts locking though)

I'm currently nuzlocking my way through PKMN Emerald and already had two losses. I never thought it would be so dramatic ;_;. One thing I know for sure: In my next nutzlocke I'm gonna change the rules, my current ones won't allow me the use of potions. I must have been insane. Good luck with yours :).

Paperiapina Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2012  Student General Artist
Yeah, my first loss was a bidoof I had just caught that died on it's first fight. As short as it was, it was heart braking seeing the "Bye bye, Miisa"-message on the PC when I went to release it.

No potions? Man, that sounds tough! Best of luck to you too.

I love that your drawings have kept the battle damage... no willie-nillie full healing at the Pokemon center. X3 I LOVE THAT!

Poor Molla.

I love how you draw Zubat, their so... plain on the anime. you gave him structure in his wings... LOVE THAT TOO! ^_^

how long does it take you to draw a typical panel?

:iconpaperiapina:
Paperiapina Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2012  Student General Artist
Aww, thanks!

The drawing time varies quite a lot, but this Nuzlocke comic is still pretty fast and relaxed to make. It usually takes just couple of minutes to sketch a panel and the inking doesn't take too long either.

Kerrassaan loistavaa sarjakuvaa lähes yhtä loistavasta aiheesta! Pelaan Diamondiani suunnilleen samaa tahtia ja on hauskaa vertailla tapahtumia, vaikka yhteisiä tiimijäseniä on vain Shinx (itselläni jo Luxio).

As for reading other peoples nuzlockes, I know that on the actual site for the original comics there's an entire section dedicated to the fan runs. You should check some of those out too.
