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.
I noticed I was getting... several... hate-fueled comments below about this choice.
As several have said, I'm not forcing you to buy anything. I would consider MYSELF a royal dick if I were to charge you guys to read it and take it offline all over the place. I had created a poll and placed the link on both tumblr and DA, and an OVERWHELMING percentage (about 95%) had wanted this.
Plus it's not JUST the comic. The notes, psds of the pages and a LARGE percentage of the extra stuff is nowhere to be found online.
Fame kinda went to your head Petty? It is nice when you make comics but it should only been a hobby which is one reason why no one been complaining about the lack of updates.
Not to sound rude or greedy as I personally don't care either way but you would have been better off if you update a few times before asking this. Give a good vibe that people would be helping you out for more comics and not the current "this comic is dead so I better start selling out" vibe. Kinda an insult to your fans to be honest about it depending on how you think about it. Like I said I don't care what you do and the price is more then fair but it was just horrible timing on your part.
@Bubbles: Petty put out a survey on DA and people said they would like to be able to access this. It was on the request of the readers that she did so perhaps don't complain? And besides not only that she has worked hard on the comics and it's nice at least she'll be able to earn some profit out of it!
Just because you're an artist doesn't mean you just get to have everyone pay for your stuff... sheesh, woman! Are you going to have a sale to pay for your wedding? You're a truly terrible person. Deliver on your real art before shilling for cash. Petty's a fitting name for you, because you just suck. You, madam, lost a reader!
Jesus christ this comments section is stupid. It's not like she took the actual comic down from the internet; this is a PURELY OPTIONAL THING. It means you can have the comic in paperback form if you want to for some reason, but if you don't buy it you can still read it on the internet.
No, she DOESN'T expect you to pay for it. She is NOT asking you to buy it if you don't want to. What part of the word 'optional' don't you understand? You are not being forced to buy it, there is no reason for you to buy it, it's just there for people that want a downloadable version with a few extras. You don't want to have to pay for it? Fine, go read it on Smackjeeves. Because it's still there.
So why is everyone getting angry over this? She's not expecting us to pay for anything since stuff will still come up on the site and moreover, the money is going towards her RENT and ELECTRICITY. You know, basic living necessities. I cannot believe so many people are getting frustrated over this.
@Kurona: everyone knows if someone tells people to buy something, they'll probably buy it! Are you stupid!? She's the. Internet version of HITLER! You don't need electricity OR shelter to live. She needs to stop being such a big baby
Woah, what happened here? Apparently Petty has accidentally assembled a massive number of Unreasonable Haters.
You know, people, both these comics are stuff Petty put a lot of time, effort and talent into. She created it, she has the right to sell it (for a measly $2, seriously!). Be glad she makes it completely optional, with additional content being the encouragement.
She deserves to profit from her hard work on this and she outright said she needs money for rent, electricity, basic stuff; she's not being arrogant or greedy.
Honestly I plan on buying it myself. If Petty wants to sell something that she's worked on herself, she should be allowed to sell it regardless of how you feel. And if this preview is any indicator of the quality of the entire book, then it's well worth TWO WHOLE DOLLARS.
Also, I noticed everyone who's been ragging on Petty is a guest. I'm willing to bet that it's just one person making multiple guest comments to piss people off.
Gotta say this is awesome having the whole collection for purchase it makes it a ton easier to browse and read. Also with all the hard work and all the fun I have had reading these series it is totally worth it. Once I get more money I'm going to donate some more to the comic. Ignore the haters
I'm willing to bet money that all this hate is coming from one or two people at the very most. It's easy to talk shit when you're not even required to log in.
I'm about to purchase this not only because I'm interested in the content, but because I also want to support Petty and thank her for getting me back into Pokemon with her art. 2$ seems a bit too little. I may donate more.
Admittedly, I do see one problem with this that I am pretty worried about: the whole copyright thing. Are you allowed to sell something Pokémon related without permission from Nintendo/Game Freak? Doesn't that count as making a profit off of something that's not your property? Yes, I realize that this is her work, and I'm not getting annoyed at her, I'm just getting worried about technicalities.
@haffel: You trolling, man? I sure hope so. You just went full retard if you actually believe all those things you just said. Either way, if you don't want to support Petty anymore because she's offering something for sale then take off. I'm sure she won't be missing your support.
To Petty, I'm not really interested in extra content stuff so I don't think I'll be downloading it, but don't let these one or two bimbos down here blow it out of proportion. You know what your fans want; I'm positive, because you flat out said you ASKED them and they said they wanted this. It's pretty egotistical of these numbnuts to think that you putting out something other people want is the same as you forcing them to buy something they don't want.
seriously considering buying, as two bucks is cheap, and I love series.
why the hell are there a bunch of a##es down in the comments giving the author a bunch of hate mail? its not like she's cutting people off from her comic, she's just giving people the option of having a digital hard copy, with extras for $2. shhesh
@haffel: ARE YOU SERIOUSLY COMPARING A MASS MURDERER TO A COMIC ARTIST, JUST BECAUSE OF AN EXPANDED VERSION OF THEIR COMIC WICH COSTS TWO SILLY DOLLARS?! AND YOU DON'T EVEN NEED TO BUY IT AND CAN JUST IGNORE IT! WHAT ARE YOU, 5?! YOU ARE THE ONE WHO NEEDS TO STOP BEEING A BABY. GET YOUR PRIORITIES IN ORDER.
DOUCHBAGS SHUT THE HELL UP!
Ok Da fuck I don't get it! Why all the negative comments! Seriously! Get the hell out of here!
You don't deserve all this shit! My first thought was: 'Wow that's really cheap, I might actually do it' You are a real sweetheart and I can't believe you are asking so little for your work. And those douchbags should realise that there is also something like having a life even for artists! Not everyone is able to post weekly or something like that. Grml... I'm sorry for using all that bad language, normally I try to add decent arguments, but I was just so pissed of at what I saw!
Did you guys actually read the post?
- Petty isn't asking for you to buy something that's already free on the Internet, there's lots of UNPOSTED ELSEWHERE content
- She COULD take the comic down and make you pay for it, hell she could have posted it on somewhere like Something Awful in the first place, but she's not
- This money isn't going towards buying silly frivolous things like a gold pokeball or something, it's going towards BASIC LIVING NEEDS. I'd like to see how long some of you would live without electricity or shelter. I doubt petty would be using her electricity to post ignorant comments like some people here
wow this post came out a lot more aggressive than intended sorry petty I appreciate everything *leaves the comments*
I won't defend all the people who are having a hatefest about this, but I'd suggest for future reference not to include all the pages you already have online for free and just sell the special extras by themselves.
I suspect that's the reason they feel it's odd and decide to be jerks about it.
Also I guess normally these sales include physical book copies? It does seem very strange to sell the already free digital pages.
I'm all for this, but am surprised it is so cheap considering the time that has gone into making this. I guess making too much off this would get the attention of Gamefreak in a bad way. I won't tell if you guys won't. :)
Will buy when I have cash on hand.
P.S. @Petty: Don't listen to the whiny people who live in fantasy land. You have every right to make money off the work you do. Even with the sketchy nature of derivative works. Those numbskulls can talk about "how things should be" all they want, but until they have bills to pay and no parents to write a check then they just not understand the cost of time and effort.
Everyone likes free content until they are the ones giving it away at a loss.
Man, I don't get what's up with all these other people. I would totally buy this but I don't get an allowance or work or have any form of my own money. I think it's awesome that you sell it this cheap though, and if I did have the money I'd buy it and donate some more. :D
It's really really disgusting, some of these comments. How could you compare such a wonderful person to a horrific mass murderer? She's NOT MAKING YOU BUY IT. And you're not just paying for something that's free, you're also paying for wonderful extras that you can't find in other places and also donating to a wonderful person. Two dollars is NOTHING. I don't think I'll ever understand how someone could sit here wasting their time with overreacting so much. I just don't.
Anyways your comic is inspiring and was pretty much one of the reasons I got into Pokemon in the first place. In fact yours was the first and best one I read, and it's inspired me to create my own which is currently in progress and also on Leafgreen. (although I am a bit worried about too much similarity to yours, because I am going for a bit more of a comical approach for lots of the comic and I have a bulbasaur. I apologize if you think it ends up too much like yours but I'll do my best to prevent that.) Again, I wish I could buy this. Maybe I will if I ask that I can actually have an allowance although we are tight on money so I might wait a bit. You really are awesome, Petty, and I hope that all these fartknockers learn that too.
What is wrong with you people?
I know several people above here already has said this, but on the other hand, I also see many people (way too many for my liking) has posted with the opposite opinion in mind, so I'll grab my chance and post a comment anyways.
I just can't believe how any person who have ever gotten the opporturnity to enjoy the works of other people for free could have the nerve to so openly put their shame on them once they mention they would hope for some credit for their work. Really, does it even matter if the artist are selling exclusives or what? For someone skilled in something, I can't see any reason as in why they shouldn't be allowed to charge something for that, and contrary to popular belief, artists surely are no exception from that rule. They too are people who have and still keep on investing their time and energy into making art. In my personal opinion, we should only be very happy and honored that great artists such as Petty wants to share her works with us, and we certainly are in no place to critisize her for whatever she chooses to do with her works, even if we shouldn't happen to like it all! ಠ_ಠ
@Kurona: Technically, fanart itself is illegal, but no one really cares, like jaywalking. Lots of pokemon art is commissioned to artists and sold at cons, so really, Nintendo/Game Freak just turn their back to it.
@JerryT: well shes doing this to get more money to emprove on the tools she is using because people who make online comics have a hard time doing both tis and working so they try to make the comic make money for the comic and on jontrons part he just moved to newyork and has writers block and petty just wants it to be awesome
Whoah whoah. This isn't just against Haffel, but against everybody who seems to be saying "I don't wanna buy what I can get 4 free". First of all, IT'S 2. FRIKKIN. DOLLARS. You can drop that shit into a sewer and you wouldn't think twice about it. She's giving you all of her work, all of her videos, and notes, extras and a few other doodles for 2$! How in the world is that a ripoff!? I know tons of people who have a comic online and Made a book out of it, and sell it for 20$. Plus, it isn't greed. She's put years of work into this series, stress, time and money to make this comic for all to see and enjoy, and it's amazing the fanbase she's gathered. To sell it all plus some other stuff for a measly 2$ is probably because she's trying to at least make a dime out of it. If anything, you guys are the ones being selfish.
Look at it this way. You can either go to 7 11 and buy a few chocolate bars to rot your teeh and last you an hour, tops. Or get an inspirational, Humorous comic that will last you, errr, dunno, 6 hours? Either way, I'd LOVE to buy this, and apparently you guys are part of a measly 5% of people who just want another person to work for your entertainment and expect nothing but a +fav in return.
Thanks for the work!
Just purchased my own copy, less for the content and more to support the artist who introduced me to the Nuzlocke concept as well as provided a few hours of wonderful reading content and entertaining illustration. I know how difficult it can be to continue freely as an artist with other financial obligations from my own personal experiences with it. So this small gesture is nothing if it helps promote Petty's continued work with this series.
Thanks again Petty. I'll always be a reader for as long as you continue.
@Haffel: Ahhh, is the poor troll sad that he has his feelings hurt over his own stupidity?
Welcome to the Internet, fucker, this is how it works if you piss people off. Seriously, you're bitching about an author who's only asking, not telling you, if you want to buy a comic of her's, with more extras than she had shown on the site here, for a mere $2. And it's going towards her bills, not her own purse to spend it on whatever she wants.
And what did you do? You go around saying she's Hitler and asking her for nude pics. And you are saying we should stop trashing you for it? You are a sad asshole who can't get a life of his own, living in your mothers house jacking off to porn from what I can tell.
@godmoderncommander: Your responses, if anything, are ENTERTAINING! There exists a passtime known as pissing people off! I can't even keep a straigt face! First off, I'm 27, second off, I don't even live in the same state as my parents. Third, and most important, She is kinda being like Hitler. Bye-Bye, little mouse!
"She is kinda being like Hitler."
Honestly this kind of proves he's a troll. (and a failure too, if you ask me.) I just can't comprehend how anyone could compare a heartless and maniacal mass-murderer to a webcomic artist who is just asking for donations and giving a whole lot in return for like, nothing.
And if he is serious, I don't want to live on this planet anymore.
Okay, for one, she's not taking the comic down. You can still read it. For FREE. ONLINE. It's a CHOICE to download it for a couple bucks IF YOU WANT. You entitled, spoiled, stupid shit-wits should be able to grasp this. I know I'm using big words, but try REAL HARD.
As for her not being active? How many of you pathetic douche-munchers have actually drawn a comic? None? I thought so. It's COMPLICATED. It takes TIME.
That she is updating at ALL is something you should be grateful for.
NEWSFLASH, kiddos- EVERYONE WANTS MONEY. I'm sure Petty enjoys doing the comic, but should she get paid for her work? THAT IS EVERYONE'S. END. GOAL.
It does not make you a jerk, a sell out, an asshole, a looser, 'hitler', or anything else. It makes you someone who likes to be able to pay bills.
Now. Everyone who is still existing on mommy and daddy's money and has the BALLS to bitch? Shut the FUCK up and sit the FUCK down.
Holy fuckballs, Batman! There are some serious assholes here! My initial reaction: WHOA only $2 to support a great artist I admire? Awesome! After viewing the comments ... well, there goes a little more faith in humanity.
1) she's not forcing anyone to pay for anything 2) Petty's updates are infrequent, yeah, but she's an awesome artist and if you had respect for her (or yourself for that matter), you wouldn't be such a royal prick to her. 3) it's two dollars. Two dollars. Two. Dollars. I'm poor as shit but it felt like frickin' Christmas morning when I read that.
Sorry you had to walk into a shitstorm, Petty. I'm pretty sure the vast majority of your fans understand what you really intended. Now please excuse me while I enjoy all that extra content.
I don't mind paying to support an artist. In fact, I like to. But...I'm going to hold off until we start seeing some activity again. I want to donate towards work on the unfinished comic, not having a copy of the old one. I'm just tired of getting behind comics that get abandoned. Maybe you could come up with a separate donation?
I don't get why people are so freaked out about this. You're changing a very fair price and it isn't like this is just the leaf green comic... I don't have any money, but I do want to at least let you know that I also don't think the negative reactions make sense.
But seriously; it's only two bucks. Great quality comic with special features on paperback, only 2 dollars. There are comics that don't have all these special features with this quality, but for 8x the money or more. So, please, stahp.
@Guest: Seriously, shoe's not making you pay for it. If you don't want it, don't buy it. There's nothing wrong with wanting to try and make a little profit off of what turned out to be a great comic, and there's no reason for jerks like you to keep insulting her. Grow up a little why don't you?!
i love how people complaining that half her comic is "doodles" are also fans that want her to keep updating
do you really expect her to be motivated if you insult her like that? if people like you were the only fans of hers i wouldn't expect an update any time soon.
hope you're happy with yourself if she dumps this comic because of you.
@Haffels: To be worse than Hitler, one would have to kill over 2.5 million people. Any other reasonable person would, in short, agree to this. the author only wishes to get a little money for her work.
@Haffels: So i forgot how many people some dictator whose been dead for 68 years? May 1 also note that the population of earth is only 7 billion? it would be impossible for that amount of people to live on earth, let alone read this comic, seeing as only about 2/3 of the population has internet access.
As soon as I get money
As soon as I get some money, I shall shoot you some money. Ignore the haters, they are not true fans. They do not seem to realize that it TAKES money to put out comics. Electricity, Internet, Food, Time, Energy, etc. Keep up the good work! I would do it now...but...$0.99 in my checking account. I hope to do it next Monday.
@Haffels: BECAUSE THE WORLD POPULATION HAS NEVER GONE OVER 20 BILLION YOU IDIOT!
*groans* If you are going to say something like that, at least get the facts straight. And Petty is nothing like Hitler. She isn't trying to take over the world for the Aryan race. She's just trying to make money to pay for rent. And it's not like she's stealing money from us. She is saying that it's OPTIONAL. It's all OPTIONAL. In my honest opinion, no, I wouldn't buy it, but I appreciate the fact that she asks for help and gives her buyers extra content so as not to screw them over. If you don't appreciate that, then no one is asking you to stay. In fact, most people here are telling you to LEAVE. No one likes haters. And have your parents ever told you that if you don't have something nice to say to not say anything?
can we all just ignore the asswipes
like seriously, it's obvious that they get a kick out of this
your insults are ineffective,it jusy gives them more inspiration
don't feed the troll
i understand how mad you are but they probably just didn't notice it was optional and then didn't wanna admit themselves wrong because they're douchebags and decided to make a game out of insulting a wonderful person.
@Haffel: there's a difference between freedom of speech and intentionally slandering someone. And your hyperbole isn't even good because it was factually incorrect! Those are the reasons I'm mad! And this isn't just aamerica; we're on the Internet. People from all around the world surf the web, so you can't say it's a free country.
@darkspiral: Fair enough.I was really just trying to say he shouldn't use the first amendment as an excuse to talk shit about people...but he probably is just going to keep talking shit. And the battle on trolls rages on...
Thanks a ton for offering this option, Petty! $2.00 is hardly breaking the bank, and I really enjoyed your extra sketches and notes! I'm sorry some people here have been assholes, but some of us appreciate that you need money to pay bills if you want to have a place to live and have time to actually give us comics occasionally :)
I'm not just saying this to avoid bannage, but...
@Kara: This is all in good fun, this rant I'm giving. Your reactions are hilarious. I meant no ill will in what I did. This is just my way of having fun.
@Haffels: Well didn't you think of Petty's feelings? Think about it, you could be completely discouraging her from ever posting stuff online for fear of people hating on her...And I'm talking about in general, not just this nuzlocke. Well...I guess you aren't famous until you have haters hahaha.
But seriously, this would be a lot funnier on forums because no one is really getting hurt. In this situation though, even if you mean no ill will, it could still really hurt Petty. That's really why everyone's so upset at you. I get wanting to mess with people, but isn't this a little much?
A. This is completely optional. Petty isn't forcing it. She wants us to choose whether or not we want it offline. Everyone repeats that, but ignorant people, idiots, and trolls repeat the problem that's already been fixed.
B. Ignore the trolls, or just laugh. They're pathetic, have no life, or are really bored and have nothing to do and abuse their free-time (and I can understand the last part).
C. If you don't like the comic, yet hate on it, people know that you have no life and came on here just to troll. Yes, the community I'm sort of part of; brony community is disgusting at times, but seriously; if you hate it so much, why are you on here? If it's disgusting or just 'plain junk', why are you critiquing it so hard? This proves you're a troll or you're just a gross hypocrite who love to check out weird things and see how people react to their comments... which is also a troll. Shoot.
@Kara: I cn understand why you would think that, but in all honesty, I don't even think she's reading this comments sectio anymore! (Yo, Petty, if you are, say something about it! This is a long assed comments section for only 3 days having passed!) I think we're good here.
@Trolls: Yes, we're calling you the trolls. You're the ones who apparently think that it's perfectly OK to compare a normal person to Hitler and claim that she is stealing from you personally because she wants to earn some money to pay rent. In fact, you are the ones stealing from Petty by scaring away all the possible customers. *holds up microphone* Without insulting Petty, her work, or her fans, would you calmly describe why you are trolling?
@Kara: This reminds me of that one episode of Doctor Who in which 10 and Martha end up on a planet where a war has been going on for 'generations' but actually it has only been going on for seven days because generations are constantly dying and cloning. Haha. Which explains why this all is POINTLESS and MONOTONOUS.
@Kara: You DO realise that a great many webcomics release merchandise based on their work? How is that any different from here? I personally WOULD buy the deluxe, but I don't have the money (sorry Petty)
@Petty I'm not too bothered about waiting for the next update or anything; I watch abridged series that haven't updated in years! I just wonder, is this going to carry on back to Kanto like HGSS does? Or will it stay in Johto? For that matter, is Gary going to be the Viridian City gym leader? 'Cause that'd be AWESOME!
@Haffel: Um, if this is how you're going to act, then why would she care that you're not reading this anymore? You obviously don't understand the time and money put into making webcomics, and you CLEARLY don't appreciate the effort that she's put into it! So on behalf of Petty, I say 'Good riddance!'
@JerryT: There is a line between critique and insult. I wanted to hear the former, actually, and your given description is your opinion and I respect that. I also agree that the general recation to your critique was incorrect. I actually had good intentions with that last question, you see.
@Kara: Ah, sorry if I came across that way.
I actually know a really good webcomic that has plushies and t-shirts based on their work, they have donations available, and have responded to this kind of criticism because of it (which is actually quite funny- they make abortion jokes and the readers are apparently okay with that. Buying things is a no-go area)
@Guest: 'Ey, we're trying to protect Petty here. There's really no point in driving Petty to the ground, so even if you take 30 seconds to post a comment, that still proves you've got nothin' better to do. It's hilarious, really. We can tell that you're a bad person just by taking the time to do such things. You make me enjoy typing long things like this.
@Haffels: To be honest, it's because no one knows how to use the edit button. Even I forget about it sometimes!
@JerryT: You do realize that anime has characters with eyes that are bigger than hers, yet NO ONE comments on them? Petty has cute artwork, but sometimes the anime has some explaining to do. All through Unova in the anime, Ash has never blinked. Are their eyes too big?
--Oh, yeah, there's another thing. This isn't even her invented style. Wanna know why they have big eyes? Ask the creators of Scott Pilgrim.
I'm really appalled at all the hostility for an artist, who has been giving loads of her spare time for your entertainment, for merely offering an optional purchase. The girl has poured days of her time into these, and never charged a dime. A $2 price tag is laughably small, yet you guys are getting in a tizzy over it. All of my favorite webcomics have a physical copy of their series you can purchase if you'd like to support them, usually padded with exclusive content. It's most artists' dreams to make a living doing what they love, and it's truly gratifying to know people would give you their hard-earned cash because they love what you do. I'm disappointed at all the accusations of greed merely because Petty hopes to make a meager profit (One that likely wouldn't even amount to minimum wage, if you do the math) for something she has put a tremendous amount of effort into.
And suddenly, with the addition of a pricetag, she's receiving undue criticism to her art. No, her style is not 100% original, but good luck finding anything that is. Every artist draws inspiration from some style or other, and at times a similarity is unintentional, and even unknown. Her style is its own, and through the series there is exponential growth and improvement. It's not as stunning as The Meek, sure, but the intent is not to be meticulous and over-the-top. The simplicity makes for an easy continuity of art and a more achievable time-frame to pump art out. Don't get me wrong, no artist is infallible, and I'm pro criticism, but many are hurling out insults, rather than anything remotely helpful.
And if you're making a fuss about the frequency of updates, then take a look at Leaf Green for a second before coming back to Heart Gold. See the difference? Heart gold is fully colored, more detailed, contains backgrounds, and each strip is very long. Do you know how long that takes to produce, especially if you're juggling school and a job? If you want quicker updates, then help your artist out. This is not her full-time job, and before now she has not been making a living at it, so it's something to work on when there is time and energy to be spared.
In short, if you can't be bothered to offer up a mere $2 for something that has given you hours of entertainment (give or take, depending on how quickly you read or how many times you've reread) and taken many more to produce, with the incentive of easy accessibility to all of it, and extra content, well then fine, don't. No one is forcing it, the comic will remain up and active, not held ransom. If you refuse to give back even a little to someone who has given you so much, that's up to you, but you have no justification for being vicious about it. But if the option to give $2 has you foaming at the mouth with offense, indignity, and rage, furiously typing your scorn on a keyboard, then who do you suppose the vain, greedy, arrogant one is? Because I assure you it isn't Petty.
@haffel: Notice how all the haters are guests. they might as well be just one person being an idiot towards others. and why don't YOU go without electricity and shelter? obviously you have a lot of spare time to hate on people, so amuse yourself with hunger and poverty. and shut up.
@Guest: Mango said 'invented style'. This is how Petty does her work, therefore it is her actual style, but that doesn't mean that she came up with it.
Personally, I'm not here for the art style; there are two webcomics with the most amazing art for a Nuzlocke, and they both also deliver on the plot. The thing with Petty's Nuzlocke- it's not the best, but DAMN, it'sdrawn better than the original Nuzlocke comic. I'm here for the plot and characters, that's how I dealt with the original designs at the beginning of LG, it's severely improved, and I actually find the style sweet.
@ haffles you should go fuck yourself its only TWO dollars and
shes ONLY asking like FUUUCK
and your feed the hungry thing wherer YOU BOUGHT YOURSELF A FUCKING SANDWICHT there are fucking people and afganistan who haven't eaten in DAYS LIKE FUCK! YOU NEED TO GO FUCK YOURSELF YOU ARE WAORSE THEN HITLER YOU FUCK DICK!!!!
@Haffles sucks: Really, this is unnecessary. Haffles is certainly not the kindest person on the internet, but this goes too far. This is not how trolls should be fought. And would you all stop comparing each other to Hitler! No one here is a genocidal mass murderer! (Or at least I hope...)
@Haffel: he might be a mouse but there are
twenty others trying to tear your eyes out and if you are as old as you say you are why are you here insted of I don't know having a job so two dollars isn't such a big deal
@Haffels: *reads all comments from the last few days* Wow I stop checking this page for a few days and I come back to all this? You sure know how to rile people up, Haffels. It's definitely entertaining though(now that I know you're just messing with our heads:p). But when did this come down to a pokemon battle?
@Kara: Pissing people off is a talent of mine. And we're just messing around with the pokemon match. (Ugh, no Toxistall!) As for the people who are STILL mad, they're clearly just newcomers to the comments section.
@Haffels: I can tell. Look at all those comments coughinsultscough directed at you! The pokemon battle is...interesting. I have no idea how to go about competitive battling(I usually just chuck my pokemon at the NPCs and say die), so I was clicking back and forth between here and bulbapedia while reading the battle lol. Have fun with your toxistall*grins evilly*
@Haffels: (Cause I like serpent Pokemon. Problem? Better send out a second Pokemon or have someone else on your side! Btw, I'm also using Bulbapedia, lol.) Seviper fainted! Go, Arbok! Arbok used Crunch!
@Haffels: *shrugs* I'm just no good with this type of stuff. I'm just glad I understood what I did! I kinda lost track of who was winning though...lol I'm kinda hopeless. Like I said, in battle I just chuck them at the NPC and yell "DIE!"
@Kara: Word~. I just go all "SPAM THIS SPAM THAT." or "YOU GET OVERKILL MOVE SPAM, /YOU/ GET OVERKILL MOVE SPAM, EVERYONE GETS OVERKILL MOVE SPAM!" or "EV's suck, here have a status ailment and something that overkills you".
Petty i have to admit im glad that you are able to put your comic out for sale because i don't have amazing internet where i live in the rural south so if i can read your comic without the need for high speed internet thats really cool on both our parts. I'll try to get a copy as soon as i can spare the $2. Also sorry to year about all the hate comments. I hope you can keep doing what your doing and have fun with it.
Also if he/she chooses to return via other means, go for it. I can keep banning all day, if need be.
Gonna just leave the rest of their comments up because:
1) I think they make a good example of what typical internet scum looks like
2) It would seem rather odd to see 90% of the comments here fighting against someone's comments that no longer exist
3) Personally, I find their lack of intelligence and utterly banal insults to be hilarious. As Kynim said, A+, would read again.
Never stop, Pettyartist!
You're honestly my hero for putting up with so much in your personal life, and now you're actually adding an option for buying your nuzlocke art??? Don't ever stop. I may not be able to do much, but supporting artists is always a worthy cause. I tell you this because my mum is a self-taught photographer and multi-media artist, and she has only recently learned to value herself. You go, girl!
If one were to buy this Leaf Green Deluxe, what format would the art and comics come in? What about the videos? Are they like PDF and MP4? This seems like a very cool deal! Especially from one of my favourite Nuzlocke-ers!
What the hell is wrong with you people?! She's offering you the whole comic, with notes and extra for just 2$!!! It's not 20$ not a whole fortune!! She needs some extra cash, she got good reactions on a poll so she offers it to you all!
She's awesome for the fact that at the same time, you can also see all of it for free on DeviantArt! She's forcing nobody! If you dun wanna buy it then don't! When a musician sells his music it's okay, when an internet artist sells t-shirts it's okay, but if she asks just 2$ (my average payment for two cheap drinks and some food and that's even more actually since it's around 2 euros) suddenly hell breaks loose? Really people.. you aren't fans, not at all.. You're cheap assholes..
As for you Petty, keep up the good work, don't listen to these assholes, you're doing a great job. I still refresh every day to see if a new page of the comic is up, I have the patience to wait for it as well. You're awesome!
Also, to give my comment some more strength, I just bought it for 2$. If I can contribute in any way for you to able to live and to keep doing these things for us, then I happily do. I'll be checking out and enjoying all the extra stuff soon and I wish you good luck! I saw on the tumblr that the next comic is slowly getting there so can't wait ;3
HOLY SHIT I'M SHOCKED
That people are being such assholes about this. I only recently found it, and this is a fantastic series. The pokemon all have characters, they're all ALIVE. They're all fantastic characters, with individual character traits, rivalries, all sorts of things other Nuzlockes don't. Even the original Nuzlocke comic doesn't have as much character as this one does. It's easily worth more than $2.
FURTHERMORE, BITCHES, SHE AIN'T YELLIN' "OHMONEYBITCHES!! COME AND PAY ME MONEY!!!". She's JUST putting it out there. Dun be bitches, y'all. And @Petty. Give this Nuzlocke run your all. I've absolutely adored this series. I love the throwbacks, that Broseph's getting a role in this again, I missed that rock-hard buddy. This is a fantastic series, and I LITERALLY had to leap from my laptop, and go: "HOLYSHIT YES THIS IS AWESOME!!!". I've done that a lot, thanks to this comic. If I can raise the cash(Saving up to pay for college), I'll gladly pay you $2. I hope that your additional content makes me have those same "WTFSOAWESOME" moments.
I think the problem has been solved, but I honestly love how much devotion we put into Petty's hard work~ It's just the friendship we're experiencing (through hate) is just... makes me proud to be a fan of her work.
@darkspiral: This message has been approved by somepony who has little importance whatsoever.
@Red5: The problem already ended, you need to learn how to edit, and please leave. :) Sometimes you need to learn to do that. Plus, the same logic can be used on you and me; Hitler breathed air, ate sugar, and walked down the street. We all did the same, unless you have no life... Anyways, please stop fighting, it's giving off a negative vibe. Actually I can't do that, people will fight anyways ignore this last part
yay, ur a qualified pony! haha @MangoDolphin
wow this thread is still hilarious.
Petty- hope i'm not being irrevalent. But i think anything i do will be tame in comparison to some of these guys...
@Petty- in case u ever do feel down, just know that you and (@Kynim or is it @Ky-nim) have inspired me to write my own nuzlocke which i hope to put on here someday. you people are awesome.
Your art is great, Petty- i can't even draw people. lol
JUST KEEP BEING AWESOME AND KNOW THAT I WOULD TOTALLY BUY THIS IF I COULD BUY STUFF OFF THE INTERNET!
It's been since the April Fools comic that I posted! Wow a lot's gone down! Best of luck in your efforts Petty!~ also @Mango- are you still intent on doing your own SJ nuzlocke comic? If so post a link and I'll read it! :)
boy i'm glad this is (kind of) over uvu
although it was pretty hilarious to read. especially the pokemon battle part. @Petty it was a good move leaving the comments there, I applaud you.
@Kynim that was perfect. I sat here wheezing at that comment.
Again I think Petty is a wonderful person and is very inspiring (in fact i posted the first page of the nuzlocke i did already, and i only wanted to because of her and kynim and others) and she doesn't deserve such abuse, jokingly or not.
I eagerly await her next updates and wish her the best. uvu
It's 2 bucks. Get over it! She is selling a great amount of stuff that no one has seen yet. Then she only asked for 2 dollars. and you are accusing her of selling out, being greedy, and forcing you to buy things. It is simply for some of the die hard Petty fans that want to see this kind of stuff.
i think this is a great idea! i mean you need money to help you make the show, i think this was one of the best ways to approach it! (BTW Just finshed the leafgreen nuzlocke, put me to tear's! love where the new comic is going and can't wait for more)
@Haffels: I agree that it's might not be so great to sell the comic... @Petty I'm sorry, not gonna boy... :/ but anyways it's okay, she need money, so she sell some extra stuff some fans like. If you don't like, don't buy! Simple shit. And comparing someone with hitler... Hitler killed millions of people, and in the WORST case petty sell some shit for 2 dollars...
I had not realized that it had ended. In hindsight, I should've checked first. I also was not aware until right now that you could delete things. I am doing that right now.
The point of a "Hitler Ate Sugar" argument is that someone can do what Hitler did without being bad. Thus it's stupid to compare Hitler with someone by saying they did what Hitler did (unless it was something bad in and of itself).
I'm not fighting. I'm saying how his logic is easily refutable and asking that he troll better. It's interesting when good trolls use logic to decimate their target (the best are called critics). That said, Petty would be hard to be a good troll for, because what she does is somewhat difficult to criticize (it's a very good comic).
Please don't suggest someone stop fighting and then say, "never mind, I can't stop you." It's somewhat passive-aggressive, condescending, and redundant. In other words, it'll make people angry and fight more. Just at you along with each other.

You are great
@Haffel: I love the amount of stupid people here who are just buying into your game lol. Seriously i didn't think trolling was that easy. You are a god among trolls and should be awarded rightly :P
Everyone else, the problem has ended. Let the hate run through here, and may this thread be a reminder that people will look like fools, and they must repent. Either that, or they have not read this funny thread.
I seriously don't understand why you nuzlocke artists make these giant pages rather than making them into traditional comic pages. It's undeniably time consuming and you hardly ever get any actual updates uploaded.
Keep up the good work Petty. Just bought my copy and I love the little extras that you have added in with it. It's also real nice to have the finale video since youtube is deciding to be a jerk about it, so less hunting there. Just keep rolling and forget the haters.
@Petty :Well, since the flame wars are done here (I hoped I just didn't jinx it...) and I am rather impatient person I would like to ask if I could be informed of an APROXIMATION of the time it will take for the next update. Thanks! Ghost
PS:(I cannot afford the extra stuff since I'm saving up for university, so yeah...)
PPS: Thanks for being awesome!
When is update?
This comic (and LeafGreen) is the most inspiring pokemon comic, or any comic, I have ever read. Please update, or people will (FU**IN HOPEFULLY NOT) forget about these beautiful comics.
Stop complaining please
Like that woman Kara up there said, this is supposed to be a hobby, and it really can be time consuming. But, to argue with her as well, the creator of "Gone With the Blast Wave" said the same thing about his comic being a hobby, but he still gets so many complaints about updates. The fans WANT to purchase content because the quality makes up way more than the measly 2 dollars or so that they charge. Complaining about the silliest of a 2 dollar purchase that is optional and is required only if you want the files.
@Greg: I agree with the sentiments but I think the argument over the cost is done. I REALLY hope no one wants to restart it. Also, people are going to do what they're going to do, as sad as it makes me to say (since I also share that thought). Patience is a virtue in more than one way in this situation
I don't get all the hate, but hopefully the comic continues despite it! I love your work Petty, and want to support you with the purchase of a COMPLETELY OPTIONAL file o cool things. I will do so once I've got a couple bucks to spare. Keep being awesome!
Petty I just want to tell you that you should always do what makes you happy and to never give up in what your doing cause your comics has given so much inspiration to so many people including myself. Please don't listen to those nasty comments that ungrateful people leave on your site and believe yourself no matter what.The ones that appreaciate your works will always be by your side till the very end whether it's victory or defeat.
