A small, light-hearted comic following a girl named Leaf as she journeys through the Kanto region.

Basic rules:

1. Catch the first pokemon you see per route
a. Shinies are an exception
b. You don't need to catch duplicates
c. Another exception is HM slaves.

2. Nickname everyone you catch

3. If a pokemon's HP reaches 0, they die and must be boxed

Funny story, I actually drew page 1 after page 2.

So! I've started a new nuzlocke! Now this may be a bit impulsive and I dearly hope I'm going to finish this (*sweats nervously*), but I've decided to do this small series as a way to practice doing comics. For now I'm just doing all this for fun, but maybe in the future this'll inspire me to draw a more serious comic run! We'll see what happens and if we can make it through to the end.

I hope you enjoy!

Already love it!

P.S. How do you get such clean negative space from paper scans? I always have trouble cleaning up smudges and wrinkles.
I use the greyscale option while scanning (300 dpi), then edit the brightness and contrast in photoshop. I think if there are smudges then it would either lighten or darken the image.

This one ended up being not as smooth as the original on paper, but still better than what I took with my phone.

Aww this is so cute! I like Leaf already, the panel of her tearing into her breakfast is so funny! Very lucky to get a female Bulbasaur again after restarting. Good luck on your comic!

(In case the text on the last bit is hard to read:
Route 1
Leaf: Have you been out here before?
Nana: The professor took us on field trips sometimes.

Nana: He always said -
*Pidgey divebombs them*
Nana: -Watch out for Pidgeys. They're very aggressive.)

Oof! I did not expect to end this fast!
but second time's the charm!
Better luck in this second try!

Unfortunately, Nana the first has died and cannot be resurrected. I reset, but it happened to be before I chose my first pokemon so the nature changed from Lax to Lonely. In a stroke of luck, her gender stayed the same!

Aww this is so cute! I like Leaf already, the panel of her tearing into her breakfast is so funny! Very lucky to get a female Bulbasaur again after restarting. Good luck on your comic!
Thanks! She is very determined to get her first pokemon on time!

Oof, that moment when you lose the first rival battle XD;; we hardly knew ye first Bulbasaur, lets hope the second run has a lot more luck behind it >W< Good luck on your run! It's already pretty damn cute!
Nana the first will live on through the current Nana!

Using the Pokedex to translate is a neat way to bridge the communication gaps between team and trainer! Leaf's mom trying to steal her starter is hilarious, though I can't even blame her - who wouldn't want to have a cute Bulbasaur friend around the house?

Route 1 pokemons are usually the weakest in the region, so many newbie trainers go there to train. Has anyone ever thought about the poor Pidgeys that get beaten up and captured all day?

Using the Pokedex to translate is a neat way to bridge the communication gaps between team and trainer! Leaf's mom trying to steal her starter is hilarious, though I can't even blame her - who wouldn't want to have a cute Bulbasaur friend around the house?
I was going to have my pokemons go for non-verbal communication, but I had a hard time envisioning team dynamics.
Leaf's mom is lonely! Nana is friend-shaped and everyone loves her.

Man, in Kanto, you don't catch Pidgey, they catch YOU
Viva la Pidgey Revolution!

Mom : I am lonely
Daughter : I will catch dad to keep you company
Mewtwo: Eat your veggies.
Leaf: You're not the boss of me!

I'm always a sucker for comics that delve into Pokemon's feelings about trainers catching them/using them for training fodder. And wow, that's a nasty depiction of Youngster Joey! Kick his ass, Leaf >:V

Just because the Pidgeys want the change doesn't mean they'll put much effort into it. Procrastinators, all of them.

Rattata vs Rattata. The credit of the name Bloodfang goes to @moonfly - I've also tried to make the styles different so you can tell them apart!

I realize that the words can be hard to read so I've switched to digital type instead. Mostly. The reading order on the bottom might also be confusing, sorry about that.

Leaf does not like bullies! This might keep her from doing any level grinding in the future though, uh oh...

I'm ready for some sweet sweet Joey revenge >:D
Joey is one of those people who likes to prove his strength... by taking on those weaker than him. This will be an eye-opener for him.

your art style is so smooth and adorable, i love love love it so much 😍 😍
Thank you!!

Bloodfang is just the perfect name for an edgy angry kid to come up with and I love it.

I love all the little details like Joey having his initial carved on his cap and the Rattata spitting out blood (which kinda makes me feel bad ganging up on Pokemon in Route 1 by the way) - they really add up to make the characters feel more fleshed out!
