Part 1!

Woo! Part one!

The LG team is now in the possession of Professor Elm- just until LOCKE gets custody of them again. :)
And we get to meet ATHENA! :D

Sorry this took forever-- I had a bunch of irl issues to sort out and then I was sick, but it's up!
Shouldn't be too much of a wait for part two. :)

God. Athenas a stuck up she-dog.

I like her already.

Someone should teach her about respect!
Her trainer is *technically* Champion after all.

Hehe, you chose Totodile. That means Silver will have Chikorita, a hilariously goofy pokémon for him to have as his main.

FBKing (Guest), July 8th, 2011, 7:12 am     Reply

I don't know. I was kinda hoping she would have chosen Cyndaquil, and the rival would have totodile. Oh well. Maybe Locke will pick Torchic when the third-generation comic comes............

Starters can be female?


I never knew that!

HalfAssedChaos, July 8th, 2011, 8:28 am     Reply

Awesome! I'm so psyched that this has started up.

Athena is a great name for your Totodile and I love her already.

I think that's what I really like about this comic, you have a talent for giving your pokemon really awesome and believable personalities.

Best of luck!

I know this nuzlocke is going to kick ass with Athena and Locke as partners

Karmarsi, July 8th, 2011, 8:56 am     Reply

Like eevee's and other rare pokemon they have a 12.5% of being girl. their gender ratio is more male as so you can't breed them as easily. Heck I got a female Charizard on my FR nuzlocke :B

I really like how you have it all start out and give a reason for not using the LG team. Glad you chose Totodile! You can never go wrong with her IMO.
Lol Athenas attitude XD Especially when she talked to Lulu. Athenas cruising for a bruising at this rate!

Poor Locke, but she has to, cuz it wouldn't be the same if she could use her old pokémon ;)
Such a beautiful name for a cocky croc like Athena XD lol This is going to be an amazing adventure I just know it!

... Ignoring the fact you got a female starter so easily, I wonder which of her original pokemon was transferd after the E4...

I also wonder why she hasn't gone through puberty... meh...

Petty, July 8th, 2011, 9:29 pm     Reply

@MEEP GOD: It's not easy, it's just chance. I have a 12.5% (I believe) to get a female starter, and I happened to do so. I also got a female mudkip in an undocumented sapphire I'm currently playing though. As for what pokemon were transferred from LG, that would be: SPUDS, BARB, SPUDS JR., PONGO, LULU, LEOPOLD, JANICE II, JAMES JR. and THOR. Though if you're insinuating I'm going to use them in this run, that would be false. That would defeat the purpose of this run, wouldn't it? ;) As for LOCKE's puberty, she's 13. She's not going to be showing yet.

Are you going to try to do all of the genorations? I just got me thinking on how you did gen 1 and now your doing gen 2. Also, is Gary going to be anywhere in this comic? Because i'm a bit cureus (can't spell) on what happened to him three year later.

Lucky on getting a female starter. I'm itching with excitement to see the rest of the team. :p

The Master (Guest), July 9th, 2011, 1:01 pm     Reply

Curious. There you go :)

And Technically, she's done Gen III and she's now doing Gen IV, considering that she's doing the remakes.

Though I think what you meant by that is "Is Petty doing all the regions?"

Which kind of made 76% of this post pointless, I guess.

I REALLY hope you caught a hoothoot, noctowls in Gen IV RULE (much better than pidgeots). Especially against that ghost gym trololo!

I know you've pretty much finished this anyways but, that'd be cool.

SSJTakuya, July 10th, 2011, 12:32 pm     Reply

i dont think Athena will die i find Johto to be one of the easiest regions even in the remake and since starters are normally many levels ahead i dont think we'll have to worry

I am soooo excited for this ^^! I love Athena so far and I have a feeling we will have some funny times with her around :P!

Istanbul (Guest), July 11th, 2011, 5:28 am     Reply

@bennyboy - Yes, starters can indeed be female...thing is, there's a 7/8 chance of a male. If you're not mathematically inclined, that's only a 12.5% chance of a female starter.

Also, I already like Athena. Watching the relationship between Athena and Locke develop should be interesting, to say the least!

This is the only gen I like the fire starter best... I almost always use the water starter. But, I like Totodile too. I have a parakeet named Athena, and another named Apollo.

This is completely irrelevant and has absolutely no basis in the actual story, but is that the same backpack that the Pokemon got for her waaaaay back in the Christmas special?

I just want to wish you good luck and thanks for doing this. One of the best Nuzlockes ever. Love you.

PS: I just have to ask (even though it may seem silly) are you a boy or a girl? - not a joke

Thanks again!!!

@Everyone asking about the update: Sorry it's taking so long! I'm dealing with some personal issues (I was diagnosed with cyclothemia on monday so that's been kjfdhgj for me right now).
It's mostly inked, the coloring shouldn't take too long. I'm just in this weird transitional state where I'm getting ready to move and I'm looking for a job on top of the cyclothemia and the insomnia that comes with it.

Please bear with me and thank you for your patience!

Female Starters
@bennyboy: I got a female tepig once, but then I abandoned Black. lol i didnt have the patience to get through the beginning so I started Ruby.

there's a 12.5% chance for starters to be female. Its a small chance, but its there! :>

AuraX (Guest), June 14th, 2012, 3:27 pm     Reply

A 1 in 8 chance, to be precise.

The only real bearing it has, however, is on breeding. But that bearing disappears as soon as you get a Ditto. In fact, when you get Ditto, it's actually better for the starter to be male.

I wish someone would pick chikorita for once, it is the weakest of all starters, but hey that's a 1 to 15 ratio not including the evolutionary line, also I thought a serious emo chikorita with his leaf over its eye would be cool. Don't tell Athena though, she'd kill me if she heard this.
