Papermonkey's 'Nuts Lock' part 8 by Paperiapina Papermonkey's 'Nuts Lock' part 8 by Paperiapina
Rules and stuff:
[link] << Previous pagething * Next pagething >> [link]


I’m visiting my family, which means that there’s plenty of time to draw Pokémon. So guess what I’ve been doing!

Oh, man, I was so afraid of that Skuntank! When I last time played Platinum long before starting the Nuzlocke, the thing wiped my entire team something like four times before I could take it down. I really didn’t want that to happen again, so I had trained Shale to be on equal level to it before I dared to go challenge it. She was the only one on my entire team with an attack that was super effective (of all the seventeen types, it's only weak to ground), but luckily she has the highest defense of the team.

You’re a hero, girl stone! Have some marshmallows.

And now I’ve finally caught up with the comic, so I can continue gaming again! Yay!

Argh, this was so adorable. I loved the team bonding in the end. And I was worried for Shale. Shale is just amazing cute. How do you make a boulder cute?

Bats are my favorite animal so I find Roger's movements and behavior very charming. I particularly like that you prove comics don't need constant background to look good...it's something I often worry about.

I'm kind of experimenting with the backgrounds here. Since I'm keeping this comic easier than my main one, I have more freedom to play around and see how little exactly can I get away with. As long as everything important is there and readers can follow it fills its job.

Okay, I just found your nuzlocke, and I love it. It's really well-drawn and the characters are all very interesting. Just so you know, you've officially been Nuzlocke-followed. :)

I have to say I adore your portrayal of Roger's evolution! It was absolutely hilarious and very accurate to the change in anatomy.
By the way I adore your art, designs, and Wurr. I've been to shy to post before

woah... never thought there'd be so much emotion in a Pokemon comic... I LOVE IT!!! Can't wait to see what happens next :)
Also, love how you made Roger act right after he evolved. My roommate gave me a funny look for laughing so hard, but you make the story so interesting I can't help getting into it.

You know, when BATMAN evolved into a golbat (Yes, that's the name of my nuzlocke's crobat... Poor thing of him XD) I scribbled a one page comic about that, containing a joke really similar to yours (just more exaggerated). So when I saw this comic of yours I lolled.
It's funny because your "Nuts Lock" is what inspired me to start my own. And also, I'm glad you too noticed what of a big trauma an evolution could be to a zubat (I mean, total change of perception... Nobody ever thinks about it).
I think evolution totally may be one of the major causes of most cases of insanity regarding golbat.

OMG! Rodger is SO FUNNY after he evolved! You did the gaping mouth very weel, he looks so surprised! "this is what colors are?" PRICELESS. You are the comic QUEEN. I'm writing everything that's happening in my game (OLD SCHOOL SILVER! Gameboy color! Still works!) Namely cause I have NO TIME to draw. Its so intense. I'll definitely be drawing it when I can.

Golbats can see colors! Who knew?

You, madam, have inspired me to start my own Nuts Lock. This will be interesting, I think. I've never played diamond/pearl before either, so... yarp?

Right after Roger evolved, I'm pretty sure it should say "critical hit struck", not "stroke". I mean, I realize that this is isn't digital and you probably won't change it, but I just thought I'd let you know ;)

MARSHMALLOWS YAAAAAY

since I posted it to her comic, I was doing a play on words, if you will, since her comic is what got me started doing it.

:iconwolffang7789:
wolffang7789 Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
but isn't it HER play-on-words???? You wouldn't label your run as a nuts lock, so why say it will be?
Reply
:iconrainice:
rainice Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes. A play on HER words. Look, May I ask why you're so bloody up in arms about this? I merely wanted to tip my hat to her and thank her for showing me the Nuzlocke challenge through her comic. I was attempting to be witty. I'm pretty sure I attempted to explain this the first time around.

And for the record if WolfPearl ("Papermonkey" etc.) were offended by my use of words and spoke to me about it (of which she hasn't) then I would give my sincerest apologies and remove my comic.

so I repeat, if she wasn't put off by it, why are YOU?

I was only making a point originally. I didn't want to cause an argument or give offense. It's probably better if we drop this. We both know what we mean.
