First appearance: [link]
Ernie's starter Pokemon, Johnny has been there through thick and thin, and has seen first-hand just how dangerous the world can be (especially when the conditions exist for a Neural-Upset Zone Lockdown). He tries to keep a cool demeanor, both for the sake of, well, looking cool, and to help boost morale around those around him. The journey has taken its toll already, though, as he finds himself helpless to save everyone, and he often questions his role as the "leader" of the party.
Nothing special lies behind the bandanna he once wore as a Charmander; he simply thought it made him look cool. He lost it during a fight against a "nuzlocked" trainer's Spearow, though it was the least of the losses that day...
There appears to be a bit of a long backstory to Johnny, and him and Prof. Oak seem to go back a -long- ways, making the seemingly young Pokemon much older than he appears. Just where does he come from?...
Hey guys, hope you enjoy the first of a series of profiles I plan on doing of the cast of the Nuzlocke of Ernie! I found out that the story has been going on for quite some time, and thus can be hard to keep up with (not that my writing is the best, now). So hopefully this will help jog some memories, and maybe give a few tidbits of info that I haven't been able to convey in the comic.
Also, bear with me, as it's been nearly a decade since I've messed with any sort of digital art. Wanted to get something new out there, so trying my hand at some nice crisp computer-generated art. For anyone wondering, I'm using GIMP.
