A sequel run to A Petty Nuzlocke Challenge: LeafGreen Edition
It's been three years since LOCKE's adventures in Kanto and she's ready to take on Johto! A new rival and old enemies emerge as well as a rumor of a mysterious figure on Mt. Silver referred to as "RED".
Will LOCKE survive this league?
P R O G R E S S
THE NUZLOCKE RUN IS COMPLETE IN-GAME. The run goes through Kanto- RED is the final boss of the run.
Hurray! A new comic! :D
By the way, question. Are you counting these wild pokemon as "failed catches"? Because given that the game hasn't allowed you to catch pokemon yet, and it's nearly impossible not to run into anything on your way to Mr. Pokemon's house, I wouldn't think it fair if they counted.
P.S. I really like the way you colored Mr. Pokemon's hair!
A while ago, I was big on the Nuzlocke: Hard Mode stuff, but i couldn't handle it. Having found and read your comics was a huge inspiration. I'm currently working on my own SS run thanks to you. Going through it, i'm wondering how you'll introduce certain plot points. Looking forward to it!
Once again, Thank you so much. Even though you're already far past the point of the comics, best of luck!
Yo. Big fan of the comic; I've gotten several of my friends into it, and we've all cried together over the victories and losses. Anyway, I just posted a link to the HGSS one on my facebook page, so... More fans to come your way! Thanks for sharing this awesomeness with us. :)
Athena's behaviour... unnerves me. xD It makes me wonder what will become of her when she gets to see one of her own teammates die, or something. Her callous disregard for other's suffering can't be left to grow and fester in her, surely... :o
So I guess for those who are not very taken by Athena's unlikeable and overly arrogant character (myself included), let's wait and see. She might probably grow a bit. And if she does, I think I'll find myself growing fond of her.
As it is: I'm more shocked and fearful of her rampant savagery than actually liking her. But this is an interesting turn of events nevertheless.
Johto Nuzlocke Question
Since in-Game your already Grinding for Red, how did you manage to survive the endless hours of Grinding? It took me forever to finally get my three Pokemon up to 21, and I lost my Geodude on the way. What's your secret for persistence?
@Kayle Egbert and Jordan
Although this is of little assistance, Vriska did spare Tavros and not feed him to her Lusus (Though that may or may not be from ancestry) and Athena might have done far worse since it appeared she was gonna rip the leaf off it's head if Locke hadn't called her off.
Johto is what happened when the creators of Pokemon first tried to make a "moral of the story" game. It wasn't pulled off very well (and wasn't really until Unova, but that's a tale for another day), but an artist who's writing it as more story than game should change that. I look forward to seeing things unfold.
For what it's worth, that Soul Silver Nuzlocke I started before the LG run was over? I'm also grinding to face Red (and the Elite Four second time around). My team:
Ben, my Typhlosion
Vincent, my Magnezone (no battling in Sinnoh, shipped it over with a Rare Candy, shipped it right back)
Lars, my Gyarados
Haku, my Lugia (all rules followed)
Flare, my Ho-oh (see above)
Drake, my Dragonite
All at level 70 or so now, and MAN, do I wish they'd put better grinding places into the game! Looking into exploiting Hoenn Sound to snag a Linoone from Kanto in hopes of abusing Pickup.
Ooooh, a new teammate?! I hope its a Sentret! Maybe you'll get a Growlithe soon... I hope you do.....
Darn. By the looks of it, ATHENA was about to rip Chikorita's (Spelling?!) leaf off, but then you called her off.. I was kinda hoping to see if it would grow back when it evolved or whatever...
@Petty: I'm loving this comic, and can't wait until Gary/Blue shows up again. XD Because we all know that he will. o_o But I have a question...How will you implement Red into the comics, since Locke took his role in the first season? And won't it get mildly confusing when ordering Athena to fight, while fighting the Rocket Boss named Athena (who is also Silver's mom)? XD
...that Silver won't be a douchebag for the rest of the comic. I think that he'll change after having one of his Pokemon die, or watched one of Locke's Pokemon die... Kinda like how N changes after he hears your Pokemon saying that it wants to be with you..
Maybe Gary will be on top of the mountain that Red was on? (You replaced Red in your LG run...)
@gumlip - Wait, aren't you the same guy who hasn't updated his Nuzlocke in almost a month now? Also, aren't you the same guy whose Nuzlocke is illustrated so abominably poorly that I took it for a trolling attempt?
@Guest-0: Hmm... I forgot about him being a Gym Leader. :P I haven't played HG/SS in a while... I think it'll be somebody that LOCKE has encountered before-such as Giovanni or Gary. Maybe nobody will be up there. Or, somebody WILL be up there, somebody that will lead LOCKE into a new reigon, such as N or Lucas, perhaps?
@ShadowTheEevee: Giovanni would be pretty cool, especially considering how absent he is from the game. I'm hoping it'll be some sort of Dark Link/Nega Scott sorta deal caused by Locke's dark side and maybe Mewtwo's ghost or something.
@Guest-O: Mewtwo's ghost? o_o That seems a little far-fetched. Dark Link and Nega Scott? I doubt they'll appear. Ever.
@gumip/everybody who's telling Petty to write faster/complaining about how slow the next update is coming and why isn't it up yet: For the love of Arceus, shut up. It takes time to level grind, progress farther in a games' storyline, and then draw it up, while thinking up a plot that is similar to the game's but is more interesting. And I bet she's busy with school/work/whatever she's doing in her free time. If its so easy, then we would have the next update up by now. But its not. Its hard work drawing this and making it look good. And, she doesn't have to do this. She can just shut her DS and her laptop, and never post an update here again. But she still does it, and the way to reward her for her hard work and efforts is NOT by pestering her and telling her to draw faster, and complain about how slow the updates are.
@ShadowTheEevee - While I agree with much of what you're saying, it would be nice to see Petty pop in maybe once a week and say 'hey, here's what's up, probably another X days before the next update'. In other words, while it's kind of unreasonable to demand ZOMG DRAW FASTOR, it'd be nice to get the occasional update as to when the next page is likely to roll.
guys, didn't you look at the cover page? Giovanni's totally there -- as is some guy wearing Red's hat and clutching a Master ball. I suppose it hints to who's going to be on Mt. Silver, but still leaves a bit of mystery...
ooooh, I can't wait! Petty, you're such a rockin' artist / storyteller!
i agree with istanbul. while i can understand that it takes a lot of time and energy to draw these comics, it would be nice to see petty mention how long until the next one will be done (approximately, of course)
