First Summer - A Rijon Adventures Nuzlocke [Pg.36]



It's Big Fight Time!! I recently had a look at the first two Gym Battles, and they actually hold up pretty well. I hope this one is even better. I will probably never reach the level of those comics that have battles 3 times as long and with character development and backstory masterfully woven in, but I guess some cool and funny things happened here?

I had absolutely no plan going into drawing this battle, I just thought up the bit I was going to draw the next day every night. :'D It ended up as this humungous thing in which everyone gets their time in the spotlight. Very proud of these three. <3

:bulletblack: In-game, this Gym Battle was a complete faceroll. The matchups and their order are accurate. When I saw that Electrike was coming up last (this was the last Pokémon game I ever played with Battle Style: Shift), I was like Huh, wouldn't it be cute if Terry got his moment here? 
:bulletblack: The Gym's main battle area has a dirt floor because they know everyone's gonna destroy the floor with Ground moves, so it's gotta be something easy to fix up.
:bulletblack: I thought that was a pretty good explanation for where Water Pokémon get the water for their moves from, and for how a fish can move effectively enough to be the ace in a freaking Electric type Gym. :V
:bulletblack: Look, an audience! You know, the last four Gyms seem like places that wouldn't have room for an audience... I totally won't have to draw more people than that ever, right........?
:bulletblack: Nadia is gaining some confidence. The loss against Schiller in the first Gym was really hard on her, but things are looking up now. ;v;
:bulletblack: Can you imagine how hard it was to pick names for those Pokémon? I wanted something thematic, but not completely stupid. It was terrible. Absolutely terrible.
:bulletblack: Similarly terrible was how the red bricks have the same value as the brush tip cursor. I could not see the cursor while drawing the white lines. Unfortunately, by the time I was ready to remove my eyes with a spoon, there was no way back on that color choice.
:bulletblack: 3 (three) (T H R E E) Badges Club! That's this many Badges: :dummy::dummy::dummy: Did you know that Nuzlockes in 2019 can get to 3 (three) (T H R E E) Badges? Apparently so!
:bulletblack: The Spark Badge and all subsequent Badges were designed by the wonderful DMKryl, have a look at them:

I will update the Trainer Card thing soon-ish. It desperately needs some new art. :V

Every comment you leave here and every reblog on tumblr trigger the sending of a reminder to Ira that he has four hands now. Comment/share to help a good rock!

Next time: Wild Pokémon behave terribly in a restaurant, and more inane very-important-for-characterization filler.
