Rules


I've done quite a few Nuzlocke runs, but this one is definitely the best one and despite having no drawing skills I just had to share it with the masses. I've decided to create a so-called yonkoma, meaning a comic consisting mainly of four-panel gags, but there are some actual pages, wherever plot or drama happens. And boy, the story moves slowly, but there will be plot, boy, there will be drama, so much!

I'm hosting the comic on Smackjeeves. I find it way more comfortable than clicking on links to individual pages, especially since my strips are short, so there would be more clicking than reading. I'd be extremely happy if you decided to VOTE on Smackjeeves and/or COMMENT - either on SJ or here. I'd love to hear all your opinions. No, seriously, all of them.

Fan Art for some reason!


By all means, tell me what you think.[edit_reason]New cover[/edit_reason]

Want more, here's more. Just one strip though...

Which brings me to another point: I've decided to try a new schedule - updating once a week, but with 10 strips. Let's see if I can keep this up - should be more interesting than reading just one new strip. Anyway, comment and vote, people. I'm drawing this for you, so give me some feedback, please?

Don't worry, I'll always be around to comment! I do this for all good runs that don't have enough attention.
Like this one. Seriously

For someone with "no drawing skills," your art's pretty great! Gary's a really likeable character this run, so I'm extra looking forward to reading this!

Yay! You listened to my advice! Love this comic! Still wish Gary was the Protag, but I good feelings about our Co-dependent protag as well.

Thanks a lot for the undeserved praise, guys. I'm glad you all like my unusual Gary, I was wondering what the reaction would be. I can spoil you just a bit and say he'll be a very important character all throughout the story.

Also, some new info. In my pursuit for improvement, I've decided to try out shading. I'm doing it completely wrong most likely (I'd appreciate any tips, just saying), but in my amateurish eyes it does seem to help the art, so I'll continue. It does make the process a bit longer and more tedious though, so I'll have to take back the "10 strips a week" thing. I'll be updating once or twice a week with whatever I got at the time.

In other news, I've decided to speed up a little. Gags are gags, but it's been 15 strips and we haven't even got out of Oak's lab yet (we do in strip #16 though)! What I mean to say, I'll try to make it faster, by skipping some of my strips' ideas (the least funny ones) or shortening them and merging them together, so we can finally get to actual Nuzlocking. It'll still be kinda slow but not as slow as it was supposed to be at first.

Expect the next update of ~7 pages soon. We'll finally leave the lab and accompany our heroes to Route 1. We'll also see how Brom's lonely nature affects his behavior sometimes and encounter Doug's first capture, gijinka included.

Meh, do it at your own speed. There's no hurry, no need to burn yourself out quickly. This comic has a promising future, I'd hate to see it go up in smoke because you rushed into it.

Good skyrim reference. So, our favorite squirtle is a deadpan snarker, this adventure is going to be awesome.

Sorry to disappoint but I don't even know what that "skyrim" is... :sweatdrop:

Also - around Doug pretty much everybody will end up as a tsukkomi type at some point.

Doug's dialogue is getting a bit stale on some pages, however it's outweighed by:

Brom is pretty awesome.
Moving a lot faster

...really? I present you with the arrow in the knee video from Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim.



It's almost word for word, replacing "Adventurer" with Wild pokemon," "arrow" with "pokeball," and "knee" with "beak."

Oh, I know the meme, I just didn't know where it's from.

I promise Doug will become much more interesting as things go on.

UPDATE: #022 - #024. Yeah, just three strips.
Sorry, I'm ashamed. But this week proved unexpectedly demanding, so that's the best I could do. I should be more efficient again this week. On the brighter side, I think I finally figured out how to make Squirtles and Pidgeys look like... well... Squirtles and Pidgeys (starting from #023).
And there's a new capture too! *chuckles suspiciously*

This is a really fantastic run that deserves more attention. You have a talent for making identifiable characters, and I don't know why you say you have no artistic talent; clearly you are being a bit humble.

I'll be sure to follow this one. I'm enjoying it so far :)
