I bet you've never seen a Metapod get this much screen time.
Also, Sara looks much cuter with messy hair, but it's even more annoying to color. :XD:

Now you probably want to know how on earth I got myself into a reverse Brock-in-Yellow battle. Well, the Bug Catcher had another Pokémon before the Butterfree. (I think it was a Caterpie, and I let Benny beat it.) Then, of course, I could choose my next Pokémon. (Keep in mind that I didn't have Terry yet at that point in the game.) Nathan was at pretty low health, Ira was at full health, so... He survived the Confusion attack with one HP and proceeded to kill the Butterfree with one Rock Throw. If he hadn't survived the hit, it would have been game over already. ^^; So watch out for that Bug Catcher when you play the game!

What else is there to say...
:bulletblack: The 'present' from the Rocket girl is a Helix Fossil.
:bulletblack: Memorize Rocket girl's (generic) face because she will appear again.
:bulletblack: We're done with the cave! :la: This page looks terrible in thumbnail view because of the dark colors.
:bulletblack: I'm getting a liiiittle frustrated because I just calculated that the first Gym battle will be on page 12. There are slower people than me, right? ^^; I hope you like following comics over the course of several years...
:bulletblack: Some of you probably noticed already, but I put an information panel showing the progress of the page currently being worked on on my user page. It's in the box with the comic's title picture. So if you're interested in that kind of stuff...

Next time:Flashy day colors of course! Another team mate! And we'll reach Merson City.

Wearing Caterpie as a hat. That sounds familiar, is it a Starter Squad reference?

I've never heard of that. Caterpie hats seem to be universally fashionable!

It’s a YouTube series about the mango starters. In it Bulbasaur has a Caterpie hat that’s.... well, it’s the severed head of a Caterpie. It has some dark humor, but it’s a pretty funny series.

"PIKACHU, USE HEADBUTT!" *throws Kakuna as hard as he possibly can and gives a Ratatta a concussion.*
Have you ever seen Pokemon Rusty? XD

No I haven't seen that, apparently throwing immobile Pokémon is a universal strategy to level them up xD

So this is just Kanto with a new coat of paint and more pokemon huh

Yeah the game is a lot of scrambled copypasta from Kanto. I heard the creator had a lot of more original stuff planned, but sadly he never got to finish it.

For this kind of attack, Metapod's pathetic attack stat doesn't matter! :'D

Hot surprise encounters with strangers only exist in trashy novels, in the Pokémon world it's always battles.

The username fooled me.

Bad Twilight fanfiction, he even already has the sparkles.

At least we know why he's in the cave now.

Benny being used as a blunt weapon was quite funny, at least to explains how Metapod evolves. I can understand why you made the rules you did for this Nuzlocke, it can be really hard to complete a Nuzlocke blind, especially hacked ones, but you did over compensate a bit, but it is in the past so it doesn't matter. I did a blind run on Pokemon light Platinum, I lost my starter Pokemon on the first battle to a Rollout from a level 4 Venipede, Charmander is so squishy, then on my third go around I lost my Milotic to a Drifblim with shadow tag, and my Pichu, so a feel your pain. I have not completed the game yet but I am still trying, I even had to restart as I missed one of the badges and I couldn't go back :( (Sad),my best run was to the fourth badge. I just keep dying somewhere, some way.

Also any way if you had played this a normal Nuzlocke you said it would be pretty dark and I don't mind a dark Nuzlocke, in fact I quite like them, but it is nice to have those light hearted ones here and there. I do kind of hope that this will get a bit darker later on but doesn't matter if it doesn't. I don't really have much else to say you designs are nice, story is good and there are Pokemon battle scenes everywhere, more importatly the moves look great (confusion looks amazing), what more do you want. There are a couple of small things I don't like, for example Benny eyes being to large, but that is only my opinion. 

Sorry if you don't like the long critic, I am prone to doing them, mainly when I start reading a new Nuzlockes, but you are likely to see more, maybe some theories too. I also quite like that you have found a nice mix between quality and quantity, some writers just take forever to drawn up their work and it can get annoying and on the flip side if the quality is not there no will read you work.

Woah I'm sorry this comment didn't show up in my messages with your others and I just saw it when looking back on this page! If there is anything else I've missed, please let me know.

That game sounds murderous, I want to try it. :'D

Yes, it will get darker. There will be lots of death in the second half, I can make myself cry by just thinking about them. ovob

I don't mind long comments and critiques at all, they are more than welcome! Tho you shouldn't critique 4 year old art, hearing things that I've long fixed is pointless. xD Annnd apparently I've fallen into the "high quality but takes forever" trap since then. Thanks again for all the comments!

I know I shouldn't critique 4 year old art but I can't help it, it just happens in the spur of the moment, I sure you know what I mean. I feel this critique it still fair it your Nuzlocke as a hole the only thing I would change is the fact that you no longer update regularly and this would get on many people nerves, but I am sure you not give up on this comic, it will be completed eventually.

Never mess with a woman suffering from sleep deprivation and carrying a blunt object.
