Part 5!

I am SO SORRY it's taking me forever to update this-- my new job at Petco is like a dementor sucking all my will to do ANYTHING.

In any case, here we are!

Sorry for doubting.
Awesome comic as always.

Also wanted to apologize for my (somewhat lengthy) doubt comment on the last (Bonus 1). It's great to see a new update.

No no no, it's fine. I totally understand what you were feeling-- I just hope that I gave you a little more confidence in my horribly slow self. (I'm working on fixing that. ;) )

Yay! I love this comic :3

I always have my doubts when there's a huge break in a comic, but I'm so glad you were able to update! We all appreciate the comics, and they're always awesome.

Dracarot (Guest), January 5th, 2012, 10:37 pm     Reply

It appears that you've also finished the game, be it for good or ill according to your Progress notes. So we do know that you actually fight Red, and knowing his pokemon are in the 80s the fight, for good or ill will probably be more bad ass in appearance than even the attack on Mewtwo. I pray it went well but know that at those high levels the only real option to have 100% assurance avoid losses is training to level 100, and even then it's 6 pokemon in their 80s where as Mewtwo while a legendary was only level 70 and wild.

He was really on the team just to fill space at the time-- I mean, better to have something that CAN attack, rather than harden every turn.

Arcana (Guest), January 6th, 2012, 11:11 am     Reply

We understand how hectic things can get, Petty; don't worry too much about it. Real Life > Games/Comics/Whatever. Those who get too impatient, while also understandable to an extent, simply need to grow up a bit and trust that you'd at least do your readers the courtesy of notifying them if you decided to abandon a project. As things stand, thanks for taking the time to make this comic and update it when you can. You have a knack for storytelling.

Sorry to hear about the sapped will and such. I 'm sure many of us can certainly relate when work is involved (especially retail).

Armada (Guest), January 7th, 2012, 11:12 pm     Reply

I'd just like to say that you made me like pokemon again. I'm currently doing a nuzlocke of ruby while on my first playthrough of white. The nuzlocke is currently on hiatus because new adventures = best adventures, but the nuzlocke WILL BE FINISHED!
Also, just wondering, do you plan on updating regularly again? i know a lot of us want to know that, and if so, how often?

Istanbul (Guest), January 8th, 2012, 6:28 am     Reply

While I'm very glad that you've returned to the comic, I would like to point out that it would greatly behoove you to - if you're running behind, or real life is getting in the way - just drop in and say 'hey, comic's gonna be late'. That way, it doesn't look like you've just given up; people will give you a lot more leeway if they think you're just swamped.

Glad You're Back
I'm glad you're back after such a long absence. I have some advice, I noticed you have a newsfeed on the homepage and the only update you have on there was declaring the launch of heartgold back in february. I suggest you make use of this newsfeed to regularly update your fans and not leave us in the dark, not saying anything until the day of your next comic. Thank you.

I have only recently started reading your comics, I finished Leaf Green and it must've been torture for your earlier fans to have to wait the full 6 months on you, while I waited a week... Anyway, I'm glad you updated again, and I'm thinking of Nuzlocking my Platinum! Thanks for the inspiration.

3 months (or even 6 months) is nothing compared to how long people would have to wait for a new episode of SMBZ to be released :P

Yeah, I can wait for the next page. But just because I can doesn't mean everyone else can...

And now I feel like an idiot because I just realized "Locke" got her name from the end of "Nuzlocke"

katie310117 (Guest), January 12th, 2012, 8:19 pm     Reply

I do find the skipping of the battle with Silver to be interesting. Is it just for plot reasons (i.e., you had to edit him out until later) or because it was dull/took up time and space?

Petty, January 12th, 2012, 11:25 pm     Reply

@Armada: Haha, aww-- Glad I could do so!
As for regular updating, I PLAN on using one of my two days off per week to work on my nuzlocke comics. As for how quick I can get them out depends on how long they're going to be or how complicated. It shouldn't be as bad as this last wait though. :)

@Kevin: You knwo, I totally forgot about that newsfeed-- great point and I will start using it. :)

@Katie310117: Hehe, you're not the only one to have noticed the absence of SILVER in this part. While I DO have a plot-related reason for him not showing up, that plot reason was derived from the need to consolidate the update. I wanted it to stay light-hearted for a while so this comic doesn't feel too depressing. ;)
So I cut SILVER so the comic isn't so SERIOUSSSSS in every update and (again) for the plot reasons.
