The End


If you're going to post a "Yayyyy it's back!!!1" comment, please also take a moment to mention one thing you liked about the page, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks.


Hello friends, have a summary about what happened since the last proper update. I wrote my Master's thesis, which didn't go so smoothly, but in the end I got a good grade and graduated. Then I looked for a job and got a job. Since it's in public service and deals with secret information, I have to jump through some more hoops before I can actually start, so I'll tell you more about that later. I'm very excited. ;v;

Also I spent a lot of time programming the NuzlockeVNcollab game, which is currently in testing stage. YES IT'S COMING. I hope the 3 people who are still around from when this project started are excited.

So now that my life will soon be structured again and that big project is out of the way, maybe I can draw more pages?? Hopefully??? You know, if I ever want to get anywhere with the story, I should probably switch the format to be like the April Fool's page. But...not for...the next page...it has..my favourite side character :iconlazycryrollplz: And sometimes I love coloring. And we all love the scenery porn. I'll figure something out eventually......


Anyways, here's some rambling about this page!

:bulletblack: In all the years, I never figured out how to draw Geodude, which was very tragic because I love Ira. Surprisingly, Graveler is much easier. Good round boy. <3
:bulletblack: Now I have to redraw the entire team reference for this evolution update because my style changed too much since I made it and everything is ugly. :dummy:
:bulletblack: In-game, Ira destroyed the Onix with a Magnitude 9 in one turn or something. There was never any danger. Onix has the attack power of a wet paper towel. I'm glad the dramatic portrayal made some of you worried anyways. ;D
:bulletblack: It never stops raining and thunderstorming on Moraward Path. Never. I'm glad we're done with Moraward Path now. But we're not done with rocks yet. There's still the tunnel. I kinda want to draw a house instead, which is a clear sign that I'm losing my mind.
:bulletblack: Even Sara wanted to skip the tunnel. She doesn't know that she's in a Pokémon game and can't do that. But if the characters didn't make bad decisions, it wouldn't be exciting, right?
:bulletblack: Look, this is not a cliffhanger. They already fell off the cliff.
:bulletblack: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAH


Next time: More pain. And a tragic loss. Kinda.

Really like that this comic also makes traveling more of a task than what you ordinarily see in Pokemon stories, of course its not going to be super simple to walk from place to place exposed to the elements and for it to be hunky dory afterward XD

Welcome to the wild! They could build some more footpaths and rest stops along the routes most trainers take on their journey, but where else are you gonna get tough and grizzled? : D

all of them holding one of Ira's hands and helping them learn to walk was THE sweetest thing i've seen

Sometimes you have enough hands to hold all your friends, sometimes you have enough hands for them to hold you...

It's about Nuzlocke characters in highschool, and you can date or befriend them. If you click the link in the description, you get to the group where it was organized and where the download is.

Flash you mean? The HM is not accessible before the cave, suffering is mandatory.
GammaEmerald's avatar
Yeah meant flash, and that's bad game design imo

Yeah it's a lame way to add difficulty. When you come well prepared with Repels and healing items, it's not difficult, just annoying.

It would be very tragic if not, I've made some enormous progress on the next page(s) this month :3c

I just binge-read all of First Summer up to this point, and I fell in love with it all over again. You really injected so much life into the Rijon region, from the characters, to the scenery, to the pokemon themselves. When Sara is cold and soaked from the downpour, I feel cold and soaked with her. When Pilot is frustrated about showing his feelings, I feel frustrated with him. When Benny is on a sugar binge, well...Let's just say I'm eating sugary things now. :D (Big Grin) 
Art-wise, your progression is amazing. Your characters were always endearing, and your colours lush, but now they're that and then some! And holy crap, your shading! In a nutshell, it's just the right amount of cartoon mixed with realism. I'll always look forward to more First Summer, that's for sure!

(I recently started playing Rijon Adventures again, myself. Was super choked to learn that Nintendo shut them down...This is why we can't have nice things. T_T)

Aahhh thanks so much! Glad to hear everything feels alive, that's all I ever wanted. ;v;
Thanks for the kind words about the art too! Llama Emoji-10 (Shy) [V1] 

(It's like Nintendo has nothing better to do... Just lovely how they went after Uranium right before its big release date, too. Fan content helps keep the IP alive, what a slap in the face for the biggest fans who invested hundreds of hours into their projects.)

No prob! Keep it up! ^_^

(Yeah, no kidding. It's one thing to go after bootlegs that try to profit from their property, but to shut down non-profit fan-made games? That just comes off as petty. I'm morally conflicted now whether I should buy a 3DS and games like Pokemon Sun/Moon, even though they look amazing. Their slogan should be "Nintendo: Great Games, Terrible PR" XP )

I like how your Graveller has to learn how to walk after evolving. Never really thought about how it must feel to suddenly have legs where you didn't before.

Fortunately Pokémon learn quickly and they won't have to struggle with this for weeks ;v;

Thanks for all the comments!! <3
