Welcome to my Soul Silver Nuzlocke run! I've been working on this comic since the EARLY days of Nuzlockes (since 2011), so it starts out... a bit rough, but don't worry! It gets WAY BETTER.

Here's what I mean...


So if you want to brave those first few pages, you're in for a treat later! I hope you all enjoy!

Here are the rules:

1. Catch only the first pokemon you encounter per route - if you kill it, you don't get a pokemon for that route.
2. No duplicates. (Except the different gender Nidoran lines)
3. Name every pokemon.
4. If it faints, it dies.

This is my Deviant Art gallery dedicated to my Nuzlocke run. Check out my main gallery if you want too! If you like what you see in my Nuzlocke, maybe you'll like my other art!

I also have a twitter that I occasionally post doodles too! I also have an art tumblr that I post to every now and then.
But most importantly, I have a Patreon that I post exclusive content to! You can even see some BONUS comics I'll post only there for you, my precious patrons!

So, without further ado... Tala's Nuzlocke Adventure! Enjoy~

It possesses only one singular braincell, and yet somehow has managed to survive for over 20 years~
Hey, it’s great to see you back, and welcome to the shiny new forums too!!
This comic just keeps getting better, and it’s great to see how it evolves over time- in literally every aspect. I love the sketchy style and lighthearted tone of the first few pages, contrasted with the deep, detailed and carefully thought out story we have today.

Still throwing those mysterious visions and stuff at us as well, no idea what’s going on- I’m very intrigued.

Keep it up!!

Tala!~ Great to see you moving to the new forum!~ And that improvement is nice! Man, I remember watching you draw the Whitney page on Livestream way back in the day! (And I know the "I started drawing this comic 8 years ago and it no longer looks like it's done by the same person" feel) Looking forward to seeing more from you!~

I love this so much
Even though the early art is rough, it's still cute
And wow the later stuff is great
The entire main cast is a mix of badass and adorable and I love it

Tala's later looks give me Ramona Flowers vibes

Basically this is amazing and I can't wait for more

I always drew her hair according to how my hair was styled at the time! So at that time I was DEFINITELY into Scott Pilgrim and I really loved Ramona. xD So you're spot on with that observation! haha!

Hey, it's here! The ultimate example of improvement overtime, which blows me away every single time I'm reminded of it. I love the panel you picked to show the current, with that cute magikarp flopping over the falls. A very good example. And to comment on your most recent page: Oh Dang! I don't think that was a good idea! Something bad is up and I don't like it ;A;

Despite being found outside it's Australian home range, wild DIngopox still feeds exclusively on Timtams.
Thrilled to see this back on the forums, I've loved bingewatching Tala's adventures. It actually took me a while because of the first page or two but glad I di!

*looks at Tala's original outfit* Yeeeeeah, you can tell this run was started in 2011. *shot!*

On a serious note, hoo, this was a ride. Not only did it enjoy quite an evolution in terms of art, but also? It went from cracky (one of the first things we hear our intrepid protagonist say is "sweet let's go kill things," after all) to this serious, deep, often intense story. (There are so many moments here I could point out. Bruce's death, Tala's backstory, literally everything from Rey's introduction onward...) And it's just fun reading that all at once; there's this sort of rush in watching the comic grow by that many leaps and bounds.

That said, hooooo ... I never thought I'd read a comic where I'd feel sorry for Silver. Like, sure, he's still kinda a dick (daaaaang, son, did you have to react like that when Tala caught up with you in Olivine?), but still, it's very, painfully clear that he wants to try. Oh, and seeing him in Dreamland with Electric Doggo God and Morty, about to receive word of his ~Purpose~ is just ... fun. Like, whatever happens here, it's going to amp up the drama. Maybe even send Silver off to Morty so they can sit down and talk things over. (Just kidding. I mean fight it out.)

Also, there's just so much tension in the triangle that is Morty-Tala-Silver that ... I'm very tempted to ship Tala with Jasmine. (Just kidding. I mean I'd love to see them try to work together.)

And of course, I gotta say Tala's team is great. Every single member in it is just memorable and works well with Tala herself. (Although Samara kills me with how cute she is and although I love Noctus's interactions with Tala, ngl, I'm really digging all of Spooky, from the design to personality. I'd go on, buuuuut this is a wall o' text as it is, haha.)

In other words, loving this run so far. :D

Hello, all! For those of you who don't follow my DeviantArt, I just wanted to update you all on why there's been yet another hiatus on my comic. :'D
I've been busy working on my Patreon and have been focusing most of my energies on my new webcomic (which I would like to come out by the end of October at least). On top of all that, I've been having to look for a new house on really short notice due to personal issues. And on top of THAT, my Cintiq decided to stop working recently. >:'C So, I've been forced to take a break for a while.

Fortunately, I got a new iPad Pro with Procreate on it and I've been excited to try it out! As soon as I am able to get my apple pencil I'll be back to drawing! I'm excited about it too~ I already have the next page's script completely written out and ready to draw. It shouldn't be too long until the next update, friends! So, I appreciate your patience! Keep being awesome! <3

As the years come and go, the fact remains that I'm total shipper trash and that's what keeps me coming back.
Massive art quality improvements aside of course. Everything looks soooo gorgeous.

Aaaaand the plot thickens! Can't wait to see what's coming next! (Do take as much time as you need though)

PAGE 57 IS UPPPPP. Click here to read it now!!



EDIT: Sooooo, the page is showing up a lot smaller than it should be. You can view the page on my deviant art for now until I can get it fixed!

EDIT: Whelp, I can't figure out how to fix it. There's a link above the image so that you all can get access to the full view of it. it really sucks that I can't get it to be viewable without having to change sites or windows. <:T sorry, guys!

Let me tell you, I looooooove the idea of Spooky brewing tea out of every dream he eats. All like "Huh, this one has a bit of a zap to it." Such a creative way to utilize his early 2010's classic nuzlocke monocle-and-top hat-design!

I also love me some legendary dogs. I do hawever have a sinking feeling Silver is not going to enjoy being the Third Chosen Wheel lol.

Spooky brewing tea out of Tala's dream was such a cute and clever way of presenting dream eater. It's a shame she missed her giant beast of destiny call as a result, hopefully nothing ill happens of that later. And for the most recent page, I'm loving Shuckie and their very legal adventures in the safari zone.

Autistic writer who starts more things than she finishes. Hyper asexual Twitch Plays Pokemon lorewriter. Rather be a happy shill than an angry critic.
Page 46, 55, and 56 have broken links in the table of contents. Just so you know.

Also, this comic is AWESOME. You've definitely improved greatly from when you first started, and I just love the Pokemon designs (Meowth is so adorable, especially when she's in hunt mode). I'm curious as to what the plot with the legendary beasts will turn out to be, and if Lugia will ever be rescued. Keep up the great work!
