Isn't clever enough to come up with a creative username, so just uses the name of favorite pokemon instead

Sergio is a young boy who really has no interest in pokemon, but when he learns that joining the gym challenge would allow him the chance to escape his home life, he embarks on his journey to become the new champion of Galar. Though the road there proves to be much harder than he initially thought.

1. If a pokemon faints, it's considered dead and must be boxed permanently

2. Only the first encounter can be caught per area
-Dupes clause is in effect, meaning that I cannot catch duplicates of any pokemon I have already caught. This includes pokemon in the same evolutionary line. I am also allowed 3 tries to get a pokemon that isn't a duplicate, otherwise no pokemon can be caught in that area
-Shiny clause is in effect, meaning that if I encounter a shiny pokemon at any point in the game I am allowed to catch and use it
-Gift pokemon are allowed, even if its in an area where I have already caught a pokemon
-Each section of the wild zone counts as a new area
-If a first encounter in the area is too strong to currently be captured, it does not count as the encounter for that area and I can come back later to try and catch something
-No going into every available wild zone and catching pokemon right at the beginning. Only 2 or 3 are allowed after each story section of the game

3. No items can be used in battle
-Held healing items such as berries and leftovers are allowed
-Items may be used at any time outside of battles and may be purchased at stores

4. No pokecamp is allowed to get free healing or extra exp boosts
-Pokecamp is allowed exclusively to evolve a pokemon that only evolves through friendship and cannot be used again after it evolves

5. Black out = game over. If all pokemon faint during a battle and I "black out", it is considered a game over/failed run, even if there are pokemon remaining in the pc

6. Nickname all pokemon
-Bonus personal rule just for fun: all nicknames must relate to the band Streetlight Manifesto. Whether it be a band member's name, a name used in a song, a relative of a band member, etc etc
(not really that important of a rule, but just a little fun fact I wanted to share about the run lol)

Oh a Galar Nuzlocke!
What is your policy on randomizing encounter?
do you just approach the first symbol encounter(overworld) that appear nearest to you in the grass? try to get the first non symbol encounter? or just close your eyes and wander around till encounter?
and may I know your policy in dividing the wild area?

anyway! best of luck on the run and god speed on the comic!

Love Hop's cheeky approach to waking his neighbour up. I love the style of this comic, very cute and the backgrounds look great, and I'm always excited to see more Galar nuzlockes!! Can't wait to see what shenanigans these kids get up to!

Pff, I can relate already, anyone that wakes me up before I'm ready? Gets the angry shuffling zombie version of me until there's some caffeine involved and a good hand full of wake up time.

Good to see you made your way from DA to the forums ^ ^

I must out myself as being Hau in this situation. Hopefully he, like me, crashes when the sun goes down, so Sergio can get back at him. :P

I can’t imagine a quiet character isn’t chafed by Hop’s exuberance every once in awhile, hahaha. But it’s that kind of opposites-attract dynamic thats so fun to read. I’m happy you’ve started you comic, and shared it with us. Good luck, and happy Nuzlocking!

Hey yall! First of all I just wanted to say thank you for all the positive responses to this already!
Oh a Galar Nuzlocke!
What is your policy on randomizing encounter?
do you just approach the first symbol encounter(overworld) that appear nearest to you in the grass? try to get the first non symbol encounter? or just close your eyes and wander around till encounter?
and may I know your policy in dividing the wild area?

anyway! best of luck on the run and god speed on the comic!
Ah shoot, I tried to be as thorough as possible when explaining my rules, but it seems I forgot about those! Encounters are chosen by the overworld encounter that spawns closest to me! Wild areas are divided by name. So each differently named area is a new catch area if that makes sense!
Thank you!
Love Hop's cheeky approach to waking his neighbour up. I love the style of this comic, very cute and the backgrounds look great, and I'm always excited to see more Galar nuzlockes!! Can't wait to see what shenanigans these kids get up to!
Thank you so much! I tried to play off Hop's very forward and excitable character and I hope it works out in the long run haha. He's a lot of fun imo
Pff, I can relate already, anyone that wakes me up before I'm ready? Gets the angry shuffling zombie version of me until there's some caffeine involved and a good hand full of wake up time.

I agree with you there lol. I can never help but put just a little bit of myself into my protagonists. Thanks!
I must out myself as being Hau in this situation. Hopefully he, like me, crashes when the sun goes down, so Sergio can get back at him. :P
I'm definitely Sergio here. Any time before 10 AM is too dang early to be awake!
oh man if that ain't a monumental mood

lets hope hop survives the next hour with his smile and optimism intact!
Nothing can dampen Hop's mood! At least not until Bede comes around...
man i guess once pokemon hit 100 years old they dont age huh
Okay I don't wanna come off as rude but I literally have no idea what this comment means haha
I can’t imagine a quiet character isn’t chafed by Hop’s exuberance every once in awhile, hahaha. But it’s that kind of opposites-attract dynamic thats so fun to read. I’m happy you’ve started you comic, and shared it with us. Good luck, and happy Nuzlocking!
Ah, thank you so much!! Sergio isn't always enthralled by Hop's overenthusiasm, but he can never seem to stay mad at him for too long!

And now for the update!

Okay I'll be the first to point out that this page is super rushed and lazy (honestly the only thing I really like about this page is how cute wooloo turned out), but I just wanted to get it done asap because I unfortunately have to pause working on this for a bit. Due to some personal matters, I have to move out by the 30th of this month and will need to spend all my free time doing that. If I ever have the time I might work on rough drafts for future pages just so I don't fall super behind, but I don't expect there to be another update till maybe around the second week of July-ish. After that I plan to update every Friday or Saturday, but I can't make any promises lol

Nobody can resist presents, not even an introverted protagonist! Already we're getting a good feel of our main characters' relationship and its really cute. I'm especially a big fan of the little Wooloo with big ears design, just adorable!

Oh NOOOOOOO that Wooloo is SO cute.

And good luck with your move! Don’t feel too rushed about updates, you’ve got plenty of comic to get a rhythm with. And hey, if you ever need a work-pact buddy or someone to look over your stuff, hit me up! handshake meme but you, all of us, working on our comics.

Tiny big-earred Wooloo is best Wooloo! :3

Your move comes first! Don't worry about "letting your audience down." Your audience loves and appreciates when you take care of yourself. Self-care shines through! :D

I'd normally save replies for posting a new comic page, but I'm gonna give em rn because I have a mini announcement for anyone who might be interested!

I have started reuploading an old side nuzlocke of mine. The comic has actually been on hiatus for a long time now but starting on this one gave me the inspiration to pick it back up. There won't be any new updates until I get my life sorted out, but I have enough pages out to post weekly for over a month lol. Anyway if yall wanna check it out its just a dumb sloppily drawn comic thats not meant to be taken seriously. Read it here

Thank you! I'm really excited to get more into Hop's and Sergio's relationship!

Thank you friend! I hope so too!

Tailsimp: The Impish Pokemon. Despite being quiet and reserved, this pokemon is usually very happy to talk and is always excited to help out!
Okay so I am CONVINCED that Hop picked up that wooloo while trying to get Sergio to come along because he knew it would be 10x harder to say no to that cute little face. That's my bet and I'm sticking to it.

It is born asleep, and it dies asleep. All its movements are apparently no more than the results of it tossing and turning in its dreams.
I like Hop, but 7 am is too early to be alive. Sergio's face is the exact mood.
