First Summer - A Rijon Adventures Nuzlocke [Pg.39]



Say hello to the longest page ever! (Not the longest update ever though, the Pg. 32/33 double update beats it by quite a bit haha) I'm fine! Really! stare grin 

Sam is here Sam is really here I love him!! I don't blame you if you don't remember Sam the Rival, he last appeared on Pg. 16 (if you look at that, I have to kill you) and also he got a new outfit again because he needed to look even more like a hipster.
Unfortunately he also needed to be instrumentalized to let death creep one step closer to Sara. Next time you see that bit about death in Pokémon battles, it's gonna be her. Sleep well!

:bulletblack: Haunted Forest is yet another place to come back to later... No spooky Ghost Pokémon today...
:bulletblack: So in the gatehouse between the city and the forest there was Sam standing next to one of the Kimono Girls who take care of the forest. Apparently I thought that was enough of a reason to ship them. You may recognize Karena's design as one of the Furisode Girls from XY because I don't have a creative bone in my body. Karena is that character's name in the German version, and I just thought it was neat.
:bulletblack: That first Forest Gate panel? Maybe I wasn't fine during that. I don't really know, my brain has chosen not to record memories, so I will do something like this again in the future. :thumbsup: 
:bulletblack: The battle is true to the Pokémon used in-game! Of course Nadia destroyed the Gyarados with Sludge Bomb and not with her puny grass moves, but where's the fun in that.
:bulletblack: Making an aesthetically pleasing Gyarados design without ripping off someone else's design is hard. I guess it went okay.
:bulletblack: Ira is a Golem now!! I love Golem I love every reptile Pokémon they are fantastic. #076 Golem:heart:  For most of my life I thought Golem had a tail because that just makes sense, so Ira gets a tail! Ha! Ref sheet will be updated soon.
:bulletblack: Trade evolutions don't exist in this world because they're stupid and I hate them. I still thought it would be nice to have this evolution happen after the Rival battle because it has something to do with friendship or something. Unfortunately Rijon Adventures has no changes that make unobtainable evolutions possible, it's rather that they're catchable in the wild. (Espeon and Umbreon at least, I don't know about the trade evolutions.) So to evolve Ira, I used a special version of VisualBoyAdvance to trade between my save file and a copy of it. Then I swapped the two evolved Iras back because having a mirror universe Pokémon felt kinda uncanny. Day58 - Sweatdrop 
:bulletblack: So yea, Sam didn't have his Rattata from the previous battle anymore just like the Rival in the Kanto games. That was just the moment to subvert that Nuzlocke trope and kill someone else asdghkjfls I'm sorry
:bulletblack: Loucian! #198 Murkrow His name in-game was actually Louis and I've been thinking about renaming him for at least 5 years because, well, there's Gym Leader Lois. We already got Scott the Cubone and Scott the Gym Leader, which is fine because I didn't know about the Gym Leader when I named the Cubone, but for Lois/Louis there's really no excuse. :V I finally decided on the new name when I had to write it down on the page. It feels great since it's similar and also better, as it has a fitting meaning for the character.
:bulletblack: So is there any truth to what Loucian says about the afterlife, or are those just the personal beliefs of a very spiritual Pokémon? Consider that this world has things like Ghost Pokémon, so they have some more solid inspirations to base their beliefs on than we do. Maybe we will hear more on that someday...
:bulletblack: At Evelyn Reed's Floral Shrine in-game you straight up meet her ghost who says that it's nice to meet someone else besides her children who can see her. I thought that was a bit much and toned it down a little! :'D
:bulletblack: Evelyn's son Edward is the Ghost/Dark type Gym Leader, and the rest of her family shows up later as well. So this family is kind of a big deal.
:bulletblack: Super fun fact! Pretty much immediately after finishing the game, my save file got corrupted. So I couldn't use it to look at the places in the game anymore and had to start another run for that. That one has gotten a bit annoying to play since I only have an overleveled Venusaur in there and nothing else. But! I still have the copy used to evolve Ira which is just at the point the comic has reached now. So now I can continue playing that file with an actual useful team along with the progress of the comic, and it will be like an alternate universe in which nobody dies... haha.... Bunny Emoji-73 (Tears) [V4] 

Soooo ummm actually I'm so excited for the next page that I'm losing my entire mind! Yes! Maybe it will be a normal sized page too and not take forever! Maybe! :dummy:

Every comment you leave here drips a little bit of reason into my brain so that I don't attempt something like the Forest Gate panel anytime soon again! Unless you want to see something like that soon again I guess, then your comment goes to filling my overconfidence gauge, which is pretty good too!

Next time: big bois big bois big bois big bois big bois big b
