The whole team in color!

Man, I had forgotten how bright crobats are. Well, makes sense, being half poison type and all. Apparently the fifth gen. sprites would have had a bit less bright purple colors, but Roger is from Sinnoh, so he is also colored like a Sinnoh crobat. Also probably the first time ever that I draw myself in color. Nothing special to see there, though. This was fun.

I actually had this sketched several months ago, but since the team wasn't quite like that in the comic yet by that point (Osamu had just evolved in game and hadn't been shown in the comic as a luxray yet, and Roger still had his wing packaged) I didn't finish it. Now it felt like a good spot to complete it, as the team is actually mostly looking like this.

I love drawing Pokémon.

Can I just say I love this comic?  It's so funny!  Did you know Ponyta are supposedly such great jumpers, they can clear Ayers Rock in one bound (according to FireRed)?

You've turned a pokemon comic into a journey, an experience, and something really really good, with a variety of personalities, types, and people in it. This just really seals the deal. And I really look forward to more each update.

Your comics and this specific comic style of yours are the whole reason why I ever loved making comics in my life. I feel guilt that I have not pursued making any series like I had wanted to years ago, but looking at this makes the guilt fade. I just enjoy it so darn much. It feels warm, fuzzy and wonderful.

Please, never stop. ♥

I think it's against the rules to trade a Pokemon during a Nuzlocke.

Is it?

The standard Nuzlocke rules are 1) if it faints it's dead 2) you can only catch the first pokemon in each area (unless it's shiny)

Other people have done super hard challenges like "no potions/healing items" or make up different rules for themselves, but I can't see any reason why you couldn't do tradebacks to evolve something. (Trading for pokemon you can't get at that point is maybe against the spirit of the challenge, but not the actual rules.)

I know the standard rules are like that, but I think that the acquisition rule applies to trades, otherwise you could trade for a Pokemon you wanted but couldn't acquire on an earlier route. The point of a Nuzlocke is to force variety while increasing the difficulty, not to gather your old team and see how long it lasts.

Yeah... I have to say, my one attempt at a Nuzlocke failed miserably. I just kept making excuses to myself for why I had to break the rules, because I was too attached to my team members (did not help that my starter got KO'd in the VERY FIRST trainer fight of the game) and then my team sucked so badly overall due to underleveling and bad stats that they just. kept. dying. I gave up on the Nuzlocke and tried to just make it through the E4, but after over a dozen attempts at brute-forcing the E4 and continually failing, I just reset the game.

Maybe it would have worked better on a different cartridge (I was playing Diamond but I'm not a fan of many Sinnoh pokemon)... but honestly, I don't think it would be that different. I just don't like to play really challenging video games. :/

I am really enjoying your comic, though. Haven't read a Nuzlocke comic before but you make the whole process tremendously entertaining... and am duly impressed at your dedication to the story (ie, not using Air Cutter in game because the Crobat's wing was 'injured.')

The colors are flat. I just eye-dropped the colors from the official game sprites and colored them underneath the line art that had some minor pencil shading.
