Welcome to the second arc of Shiro's saga! If you haven't read the first part, you can find it here: Shiro's Trial, a Nuzlocke Adventure in Kanto.

THE RULES:
1.: If a Pokémon faints, they are considered dead. Release them.
2.: Only the first encounter in any area may be caught. An "Area" is defined by a section of the map that has any 2 of these 3 traits: has a unique name, is separated by a transition/fade to black, has a significantly different encounter table. This rule does not come into effect until after pokéballs are obtained. Scripted/forced encounters may be skipped. Also: Dupes clause is for losers.
- 2.a.: Gift Pokémon do not count as encounters and therefore can be accepted freely (one per source).
- 2.b.: Shinies are fair game.
- 2.c.: In-game trades are permitted provided that I catch the requested pokémon as a first encounter.

If you've got questions for Shiro and the team, she has an Ask blog on Tumblr! Click here to ask!

Sightings of them in the wild are rare, as they prefer to stay indoors with their art tablet and little siblings.
violently shakes the moving van

IT'S HAPPENIIIIIIING!

Ok, time to grab my popcorn and enjoy the ride.

Despite being a Grass-type, Casual is a flaming lesbian. Fire and Grass don't usually mix, but somehow it works out here.
HERE WE GO!

A brand new adventure begins, and it's not exactly on the brightest note. I'm sure hoping that Mewtwo actually figures things out.

Count me as one who is aboard the hype train!

I love that, for all Mewtwo's power and abilities and schemes, he's still a child, haha. It's funny to see Shiro (rightfully) scold him for dumping her in a new place without any Pokemon. I wonder how the Littleroot folk will react to Shiro returning there. Consider me hyped!

this ghost tries to be cool and kinda angsty, but ends up keysmashing about cute things anyway. they may project a bit too much onto their writing.
omg good luck!!! aaaaaa it's happening

poor Mewtwo does not exactly think things through do they, it's almost like they could've brought along Shiro's champion team to help her fight the two people who want to summon the land titans. but no, just stranding her in Hoenn is clearly the best idea ;p

God speed on the comic and good luck on the run!

Any policy about egg hatching, Shiro?

Doesn't actually like birds all that much.
Big brain mewtwo with the big brain plans. Incredible forethought and planning, here. Exactly what I'd expect out of an overgrown housecat tbh. I'm really looking forward to seeing how she explains her presence in the moving van to the first people she sees in smalltown hoenn

Buckle in, it's going to be one hell of a roller coaster.

He's still got a lot to learn.

"You´ll figure something out"

Shiro only wishes he would disappear - reality is far more interesting.

HERE WE GO!

Mewtwo and Shiro will figure things out together . . . or Shiro might just figure things out without his help.

Alright, here we go!

Shiro lives with her mom in Kanto, but she visits Hoenn every couple of months when she can. Her showing up out of the blue is a regular occurrence.

Give him a break - this is his first apocalypse.

Eggs are fair game, but I didn't use any in this run.

Mewtwo has a big ego for a big baby.

UPDATE TIME!

A bit later than I intended, but I started a new job recently so my spare time is at a premium.

If you're in a hurry, don't ask a Slakoth for help.

(and if you're wondering how Shiro got in, Norman leaves a spare key buried behind the house.)

I was aiming for a weekly update schedule, but with my new job I don't know if that'll be possible. Still, I'll keep at it and update when I can. In the meantime, you can ask Shiro and the team some questions over yonder at her Ask Blog!

Dutch gave an amazing effort opening the window, best Slakoth. And ooooooo, I was curious what starter Shiro would pick! Atlantis is a very fitting name, this guy already looks so cute.

Oh man, I am so excited for this run! After the Kanto comic ended, I've been waiting in anticipation for more of Shiro's journey!

As a fellow Emerald Mudkip user, I wish you luck in what's to be Shiro's greatest trial yet!

Gasp, oh man, I didn't realize there was a new thread up on the forums from you (though I saw the first comic on DA apparently XD

Love that Shiro's just like: welp, I gotta do a thing now, so I'ma do that thing and I'ma figure some shit out. I love that we're basically in her home town region, so it'll be interesting to see how she interacts with some characters!

You fool, now I can break into Norman's house whenever I want! A supply of falsely obtained Balance Badges will flood the black market! MUWAHAHAHAHAHA

Atlantis is adorable and I will love him forever

Has never heard of a work schedule, so either writes three chapters in a day or one in three weeks. Invite to a DnD game to instantly befriend.
Yay, Mudkip!
I also love how Dutch only talks in one character every two spaces.

It's Atlantis time!

Dutch is cute. Almost reminds me of my cats with how they're chilling by the window.

Is that a poster of the Bell Tower?! Took me a couple reads to notice that.

The good stuff continues!
