Talk softly and slowly so you don't scare this gentle creature.

Gameplay: Complete!
Comic: Chapter One!

Smackjeeves | Tumblr | Art Station | Patreon




Rules

  1. Gotta catch the first Pokémon I see in an area
    • A new area is anywhere that the map and encounter table changes. a.k.a, two floors in a cave with different encounters are different areas.
    • No Dupes Clause
    • Shiny Clause
  2. Nickname Every Pokémon

  3. If a Pokémon faints, it's dead and must be boxed permanently.
    due to my run being streamed live & it being my first time playing the game, wipeouts were not counted if I had no Pokémon in reserve. But, if you're worried about me throwing the match to reset, remember I was streaming live and had people watching me!




Hey guys! Poplocke was a nuzlocke run that I streamed back in 2017! As someone who's been making comics for a number of years, but has never made a longform comic, I thought it would be fun to make a comic out of my run so here I am!

Due to my health, updates are pretty infrequent I'm afraid. And because of this, I have recently made the decision to update in batches of pages, as that ensures y'all will at least hit a new story beat with each update! I'll still be posting pages as I finish them on my patreon, however.

Doesn't actually like birds all that much.
I can't wait to see this pop off again! in the meantime, when you start porting things over here sounds like an excellent excuse for a reread of this excellent comic.

It's an azumarill. You caught an azumarril.
Forreal, ever since I saw your sig on Tapatalk, I've been meaning to dig in, but I've kiiiiiinda been away from commenting around the Nuz forums for a while. Still, I'm glad I started because this run is already fun, from the fact that Poppy is actually a relatable character to the highly detailed artwork and realistic cat Pokémon to—

oh damn that hugh is fine

....

Anyway, Poppy is a delight (I admit I laughed at the handwritten note by Elesa comment—love the girl's sense of humor), but more importantly, her chemistry with everyone so far is great. Like, she and Hugh are very much the typical best friends, gentle roasting of each other and all, and even though she's just met Bianca (who is also a slightly flaky delight) and Banana, their interactions are ... just sweet. (The whole "oh god is this a date" thing? The "I have only had you for five seconds, but I'm in love" thing? Beautiful.) And I know that this is a BW2 run, which means that no doubt it'll be a wild ride from here on out, but still ... it's starting off as a sweet little run starring two BFFs, an adorable snivy, and the professor's flaky but well-meaning (and possibly attractive) assistant, and I'm kinda hoping this sweet but easy-going feel lasts for just a bit longer.

Plus, also, can I just say heck yeah for a fashion-friendly protag in a comic run? I say this only because I'm really looking forward to seeing what kinds of outfits and styles you give your characters. There's a lot of creative potential in that, and judging by your sig and the first panels of this run, I can tell this comic's gonna be hella fun to look at. 8)

Omg why isn't their more! *Clicks hopelessly on non-existent Next button*

This is adorable and wholesome and we've only gotten to the starter Pokemon so far. Also EXTREMELY happy you chose to do Snivy <3<3<3 But anyways, Poppy is extremely cute and I'm so happy she's getting to go on her own adventure!!! I love seeing dreams come true! I can't wait to see how it unfolds.

So I just caught up on what's available right now and it grabbed me immediately. I commented this on an individual page, but ALL the interactions in this feel incredibly warm and the world - despite us not seeing very much of it at the moment - feels very much lived in. Something about the casual way they're walking across town at night makes me think of a very cool breeze in autumn backed by the buzzing of street lights. The humor in this is also pretty spot on. I had quite a few obnoxious chuckles.
"I could look at this forever" *turns to look at said thing forever*


"are you s e r i o u s"

Can't wait to see where this goes! But in the meantime, take care of yourself. Health is important :)

Banana... i love. Your art is extremely cute and extremely easy to recognize, theres something really soothing about it, not sure how to explain it! The dialogue feels really natural and every character is fun so far and i'll look forward to more of them all~

This comic is so stylin', I love your pastel lineless art style so much, it has incredible personality. Also I love Banana and Wheats, the way you draw pokemon really imbues them with personality. And Poppy seems like a real interesting character!
