I love this guy, and you've been hyping him up wonderfully for a final ish boss,

I firmly stand by the notion that if ANY trainer deserves hype in a Nuzlocke comic, it's not Cynthia, it's not Wallace and it's CIRTAINLY not N, no no no, the trainer that deserves it the most, that'll ALWAYS be Red! B3

Eh, the only thing that makes him really challenging is the grind. If levelling up to face him didn't take such a long time, he'd be easy. The only thing on his team that's really a threat is Snorlax, and that dies to physical fighting moves easily. 

He's a bit tougher in Gen II, where Snorlax was broken and he had Espeon to be a Psychic type instead of a Lapras that does nothing that Blastoise didn't already do (Seriously its Water move is Brine). And that goes without mentioning the Hail, which helps two of his Pokemon and really only hinders the others.

The only thing he really tests is patience.

depends on the generation your nuzlocking, sometimes you got to make due with the major characters of the game you have, or substitute them or change things up with their personalities in your run. but yes, red has great presence.
Wallace? Izzat you?

Wallace doesn't EXIST yet in the B2 Nuzlocke universe! 83

Misty, calm the heck down. There's no use nagging about battle styles when the challenger's Pokémon are over-leveled. The guy knew what he was doing, and the only reason why he lost his Mamoswine was purely bad luck. (Again, critical hits... Hate when that happens)

 

Sure, it's easy to just win a gym challenge by abusing type advantages, but sometimes not everyone has that luxury, so they have to come up with strategies in order to bypass that. What Sky is showing here is that sometimes you don't even need type advantages to win a battle. You just need to know your limits. He did know his limits, but that freaking critical hit combined with confusion was something he didn't see coming. So, really, there's no point in arguing about it here.

 

"Ice is both extremely hard and terribly fragile at the same time. Depending on what Pokémon you have and what moves they use, I could be the most challenging opponent yet or I could be a total pushover. But that's all right. That's how it should be!" -Wulric, Snowbelle City gym leader.

:iconhgssmistyplz::iconsaysplz:Don't bring my dad into this! Besides, we BOTH know the only strategy you should use EVER is to use whatever the opponent is weak against!
Snowbound-Becca's avatar
Wait, Wulfric's your dad? Awesome!

Er, anyways... You're not listening. Type advantages aren't everything. Sure, it's easy to win a match by using moves your opponent is weak against, but not everyone has that luxury. Sky wanted to mix things up a bit to show the world that you don't need type advantages to win a match... With enough determination and persistence (and by that I mean level grinding), along with a good strategy and knowledge of your own limits, anything is possible. Losing Master Don was just bad luck, and could've easily won against your Lapras if not for that confusion/crit combo. It's those kinds of things that are difficult to see coming.

Yup a psycho and wouldn't wargreymon totally disappear now?
blackwing2's avatar
???: Yup, Digimon disappear when they kick the bucket, however, sometimes not if NOT in the Digital world... Good thing too, meat wouldn't have been very tasty if not there at all!
Lottos35's avatar
Monodramon:boss does this mean i'm in danger when i get killed?

Me:well no your still in the digiworld, btw did he stab wargreymon because wow wargreymon is a mega level digi xD
blackwing2's avatar
???: He was buggin me and I was hungry, the trick was to rip out the core WITHOUT breakin it like glass! It breaks and the body disintegrates! He disintegrates and I wouldn't be able to get my dinner! Speakin' o' which, want a slice? *Offers out plate of Wargreymon meat*
Lottos35's avatar
Me:.. why not *takes the plate with wargreymon meat*, got some curry?

I'm wondering if this would make a good excuse to put Kamina into a quick cameo appearance.
ChaosVincent1's avatar
because, he said he needed the B2-minati to bring him a few friends.
blackwing2's avatar
And Kamina would be?
ChaosVincent1's avatar
