Just read through this after having heard good things about it—and boy were they right! There's a lot of praise that can be bestowed on this comic, although I especially like how you turned the pointless in-game "Four Rocket Brothers" from Silph Co. into significant and diverse characters. Heck, all the characters are great—I even already like Pippi, mostly for standing up for herself against Chipo. (To be fair, anger is part of the grief process, but expressing it by being a huge jerk to those around you is not the best way to express it.)

On a related note, way to tug at my heartstrings, too. Revenge is a real threat when you're doing a Nuzlocke…

Aha! Found you!

I love your characters, always so much personality. And I totally understand Chipo's feelings (I think my Graveler had the same reaction to the deaths in my run).

Ahhh thank you so much! I really love that people like the Rocket Brothers, they were so fun to come up with and it's so gratifying when people enjoy them. :D
Thank you for the wonderful comment.

Excellent, I really appreciate it! 8D
Yeah it's the absolute worst losing a long-time team member. My condolences to your Graveler. XD

Doesn't actually like birds all that much.
So I just read through this all, and wow all the praise this run gets is definitely well earned! Such improvement in story and art, a delightful ride. It's so fun to see someone take the throwaway four rocket brothers from silph co and turn them into such an incredible supporting cast! Reg in particular is so good, he 's living his best life as the protagonist of pokemon snap now. Also your pokemon are so fun in design and in personality, the current schism in the team is thrilling drama and I love this new dodrio friend and her bizarre multihead situation. I can't wait to see more now that this is on the forums and I'm aware enough to follow this gem!

Always busy, she occupies her time with either work, sleep or entertainment. Overactive imagination and starts new things but rarely finishes them.
I, too, also found your comic recently and I am completely in love with it!

The characterization is amazing across the board. I am also loving how everyone grows and 'evolves' as the comic continues on and I am also loving how you gave the Rocket Brothers, especially Reg, a lot of character and depth. They alone are not just some Rocket Grunts for the protagonist to trounce on and be done with it.

Will be watching you from here on out!

Ahhh thank you! 😊 That's very sweet of you!
Likewise about your comic! I absolutely LOVE your characterisation and how natural all the interactions are, so it's very much appreciated that you're enjoying my own characters.

That's so kind! It's really cool that the Rocket Brothers are getting so much love. XD
Thanks so much!

Second and last preview of page 38! I forgot to mention that I generally post more previews or Nuzlocke related art on my Tumblr, so if anyone's interested in keeping up with those, the link is in my signature.

A timid Pokémon typically found in groups. The only thing that motivates her more than companionship is food.
That Persona reference got me. Rufaine’s such a good character! Also it’s nice to see Pippi proving herself in an important battle :)

Also! This page in its entirety is gorgeous. You can really see how much the comic has improved since the beginning!

Pippi continues to be The Best™.

The way you wrote Sabrina's mind-speaking is cool. It illustrates how confident she is before her downfall.

Ahhh I'm so glad Rufaine had a small moment to shine.
And thank you so much! I really appreciate that. 8D
Aint no one got time for that Teleporter BS!
Damn straight. Wasn't gonna start drawing all that nonsense. XD

*gasp* Well, I certainly didn't expect this to become so risqué! I mean, French kissing?

In all seriousness, though, Reg's excitement after that (and before it, too) is too precious.

Also, congratulations on your accolades in the Extravaganza! I hope you feel proud of your work!

Yeah I've been planning for a while on giving the comic a saucy, x-rated turn. XD

Thank you so much though! I do feel proud, and very thankful! :D It was really fun, and it was great to get a chance to discover so many other runs that I definitely missed.

First off - congrats on your Ganza wins! I was so excited this comic make it to the forums, and I was over the moon when I saw it was doing well in the ganza. Much deserved!

Second, aaaaaah this update! French and Reg being adorable, Sabrina's design and how her text floats outside the panels, the colors for Faint Attack!!! French, you've outdone yourself here.

Oh my goodness I love your Sabrina. The way French just harasses her and gets free transport and finally just makes her snap and stop with her telepathy and just shout I'm, it's so good and fun to read. Your comic is great, it 100% deserves all those wins in the ganza and congratulations for them all
