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.
Alright. The dance hall. I loosely based it off a kabuki stage setup, incorporated painted screens and etc.
Kimono girl Miki was originally going to be more aloof (her in-game battle line says that she's the girl who prefers actions to words), but we haven't really gotten much dialogue from the girls yet, so this was a good opportunity to do so.
The evolutions: Ok, OBVIOUSLY they all didn't evolve here. Rule of cool, bro. The only ones that were evolved in-game prior to Morty were WESTON and BROSEPH. The rest got a pre-Chuck grind til they evolved. I did it to cut down on some panels in the next couple updates, since it won't be fitting the story to have LOCKE have to stop and grind her 'mons.
The next update should start to sneak some plot in. ;)
Be on the lookout for it hopefully soon! My friend and I are going apartment hunting and I could be moving so everything's going to be a bit crazy these next few months. I already have it mostly thumbnailed though and it should be shorter than this update. :>
Umbreon is the right choice. Used one in a Heart Gold Nuzlocke, best Pokémon of the team.
That's a lot of evolving at once and... Am I the only one who thinks that wasn't all that smart? I mean, granted, it is pretty epic and the scenario of fighting off a whole building of Rockets is a good reason to make it huge, but... Now what? We're only, what, 3/16 (badges) into the game and the team is already fully evolved. With one exception, but one needs National Dex to get a Shiny Stone for Togekiss.
That's just whining though. I'm sure Petty will find plenty of ways other than evolution to make things big.
@Kurona: Artistic liberties and such - it was entirely possible to make them evolve a bit later in the comic than they did in the actual play. Heck, there's no way they all evolved in the Ecruteak Theater, seeing as there's just one Grunt there in the game. But, again, it's not bad, it's just a little shame we won't see more evolutions for a very long time (not considering the option of new Pokémon joining the team because of sad reasons).
@Kurona: Not necessarily. Used a Parasect in HG Nuzlocke once - survived all the way until my wipe-out right before the League. Heck, it's Spore allowed my Raticate to Swords Dance without worries and OHKO sweep Clair's whole team. Don't underestimate Parasect!
Petty, you have shown immense dedication to your work, and it payed off. Everyone lives to their final evolutions! Umbreons are pretty versatile, from what I've heard, and my own Noctowl in my Platinum run is doing pretty well. Once again, totally worth the wait.
@Petty: Two things: first, how are you going to explain the gym battle, since I doubt that it was done by no one but Broseph and Weston. Second, I disagree, it's not the Rule of Cool, it's the Law of Awesome.
...I can't help but wonder what happened to Weston in-game. Togetic become dead weight after a while, due to a lack of offensive stats or same-type attacks, and their defense just doesn't hold up anymore around the fifth/ sixth gym. You can't even evolve them until after the E4 is beaten, yet Petty seems to have made him a really key point in the plot...
When I saw Athena was a Feraligatr, I was like: 0_0 that was fast... I was gonna do a HG run too, I just need to find my DS and someone to draw people (I suck at that) and then I can actually do something. IDEA: YOU WILL HELP.
I'm tired of waiting. This needs to happen now.
I'm going to make my own Nuzlocke. Thanks to you, Petty, I've decided to do it! I've just gotta say thank you. You're a magnificent artist, and you kept your word. I'm going to try my best! There's no stopping!
...Oh yeah, good luck on the apartment hunting, hope everything goes well~!
@Rift: Probably a comic of the run. I'm extremely lazy + school, so you probably shouldn't expect it soon... And I thought maybe I'd post it here in smackjeeves because it seems like a pretty good place to host a comic series.
Oh yeah, I forgot. It's gonna be Sacred Gold, which is a hack of Heartgold. Just thought it'd be more exciting since my brother has Soul Silver and all.
@SoraIndigo: Hopefully she will. Togekiss is awesome.
I get that Umbreon has its place in a Nuzlocke, but personally, I adore Espeon. Love my Glass Cannon.
Also, can't believe no-one has said this:
~And the man in the back said 'Everyone attack!' and it turned into a ballroom blitz!~
~And the girl in the corner said 'Boy I wanna warn ya, it'll turn into a ballroom blitz!'~
