First Summer - A Rijon Adventures Nuzlocke [Pg.14]



IMPORTANT. READ THIS. Nadia did not faint in-game during the Gym battle. If you want to know what happened, read the description of Pg. 12.
You can now stop reading if you prefer Not Reading over Learning about Tons of Interesting Stuff.

Dear uni,

can I have my life back now please? Maybe?

Yours sincerely,

This should serve as a sufficient explanation on why this page took so damn long.
I do apologize for the slight drop in art quality, though. How do I consistent light source? :icon0u0plz:

Well, at least it's a page where lots of things happen.
We're back at Mt. Boulder Range, the route in the north of Merson City where Nadia was caught. Somewhere along the way, there's an entrance to Mt. Boulder Caves, a cave system that spans half of the region's underground. Fortunately, every path from this entrance is blocked by Strength boulders, so we don't have to spend much time in there. :meow:
At the end of Mt. Boulder Range, there is a software company building, right in the middle of nowhere. My notes about this building say something along the lines of 'Holy crap what is this why is nobody of these people working?', so I guess my depiction is pretty accurate..? Anyway, this is the place where you get the Eevee in the game. Therefore, this is the page where the issue about Terry not being allowed to battle gets pretty much resolved.

After a lot of nagging and guilt-tripping from various team members and some shouting from a crazy little bird, Sara finally changes her mind. Have a side serving of cryptic plot hints. :dummy: The last cryptic plot hints for a while. Lo and behold, the next few pages will be happier! No angst and crying and drama! Because even I have had enough of it for now. ._.

Then there's Caitlyn. I love her. She's so wonderfully expressive and loves making people awkward. :meow: She will appear a few more times, but not often enough. Sigh.

Now for the long awaited essay on why it's completely appropriate and correct to ship Sara and Lachlan even though I feel like if I cared about shipping in media, I would think OC x Canon is usually kinda lame!
To make a long story short, it's not farfetched at all. :| I paid attention to the things he does in the game.
:bulletblue: He sends his older sister after you to give to a present. An expensive present.
:bulletblue: There's some kind of postal system in Rijon that people use to send you letters. Half of the letters you get in the game are from him. All of them say how awesome you are.
:bulletblue: He's the only Gym leader who cares so much about you that he wants a rematch.
If you look at this from the viewpoint of the 10-year-old that you are according to the game, he apparently thinks you are a prodigy of a trainer and the little brother/sister he never had.
If you imagine yourself as someone close to his age, he's clearly into you. :iconhurrplz:
And this, my dear friends, is how I get my ideas.

With all the important stuff finally covered, it's time for the Trivia Section!
:bulletblack: Is it just me or does Terry get 30% fluffier from page to page?
:bulletblack: It was probably a bad idea to give the self-esteem issues to my only female Pokémon. Welp, sometimes they just write themselves. :worry: Would you have guessed from what you knew about her so far?
:bulletblack: Best TM case ever y/y? Research has shown that the Secret Power TM is actually given to you by someone in the PKMN Fan Club in Merson City, but I skipped that. The other Normal type TM, Return, can be acquired in the building at South Rijon Gate.
:bulletblack: Yup, Terry is actually ridiculously strong and it's getting to his head. IV Calculator says he has almost certainly 31 IVs in Attack, SpeDef and Speed, 28-29 in SpeAtc, and HP and Defense are okay-ish. HOLY MOTHER OF MEW.
:bulletblack: Why did I teach him Secret Power instead of Return? Because Return would be wasted on something that doesn't stay a Normal type.
:bulletblack: As you can see with Nathan, evolution doesn't make Pokémon more mature in this universe. :XD:
:bulletblack: What on earth made me give Caitlyn a motor scooter. I ended up tracing parts of it because I just couldn't get it right. Refs:… Not proud of this. :saddummy: Next character who needs a vehicle may or may not get a hoverboard.
:bulletblack: Dock Underpass. It will be fun. :plotting:

Next time: Travel montage! We'll be covering a lot of ground.
Again, the next page will take some time. Things I have to do before: Secret Santa picture. Some other massive picture that will be really cool. Coloring more NuzRooke (which is just as important to me as my own stuff <3).

Now, if you did read all of this you deserve a cookie and my eternal love. :cookie: :heart:

"Hey nadia, don't say you're weak!"

O-oh god...

"You can do anything, I have faith in you!"

Oh no...oh Terry no...

Seriously though I'm glad Nadia got a pep talk because she's awesome and doesn't deserve to feel bad about herself, but I was wondering if they were gonna comment on the hypocrisy present in terms of Terry and Sara's relationship to battling. And you gave the girls exactly what they were asking for! And ON TOP of that, Terry learned a move and is getting a chance!! We love a change of heart ;;u;;

Though I can already see Sara shaking going into this gym battle from a mile away. Deep breaths, honey, y'all are a team you got this!!

AND Nathan evolved!! Congrats! He was already impossibly fluffy before from personality alone and now he's literally fluffy. This is dangerous.

Hmmmm I 👀 you Lachlan, sending some gifts ahead of you to the cute girl you just met. Can't remember if I mentioned it before but I hope he and his team are reoccurring characters! I liked the chemistry they all had with our main team
