  • Any Pokemon that faints is considered dead, and therefore permaboxed in Nirvana.
  • First encounter, first catch. Dupes Clause - If first pokemon encountered is one caught before, you have 2 more chances to get something different.
  • Use the same amount of pokemon as the opponent during a Gym/rival battle.
  • No healing items except natural ones like berries or pokemon centers (none during gym battles).
  • Shiny clause - SEE SHINY CATCH SHINY.
  • If a pokemon is poisoned (1hp) then it's dead. Also if it's a near death experience (1-5hp) count that in as story purpose

The art is just stunning, and your style is so appealing. Can't wait to follow this one! Two updates a week sounds promising, but take your time.

im glad i noticed this at the start because wooooooow no but really look at it. it's too early to be making assumptions though even though i already have so many thoughts about this, so i guess i'll just say i'm following it. hard.

Awww Silver made a friend! :D
Toby is pretty cute, and I love your interpretation of leer! It looks pretty intimidating and I can see how it would lower defense.
Can't wait until the next part!!

this is a v cute art style so far, I like it! I'm especially interested that you're seemingly starting with silver here and with your own take on the whole mystery egg/stolen starter dealio. I also really love the effects you add to some of the attacks? it's very in-game like in a way except fitted to your style and with more of a punch.

@Robo: Silver is definitely in need of a good pure soul haha. Thank you! I've been playing around with how to modify the moves to my art style so I'm glad it's effective lol
@LunaKat: One big collective awwww for Toby!
@Vent: Oh man, thanks! I really wanted to diverge away from the game's beginning and try to give Silver more of a role than just 'rival' because well... plot lol (and i also wanted to play around with the fact that Silver IS the in-game age of 10-ish so we'll see how that plays out later on.

btw here's a lil treat for y'all as thanks! some sketches from when i was trying to figure out how to draw these critters in my style. if ppl like these enough i could make a tumblr blog to post side sketches and info

"Ohshit"

This is awesome. And I love the different characterizations of Silver and the main character, coupled with the visual representation of the Pokemon's move being more like the animations in the games. I'll be following for sure!!

Finally we meet our main character!

(sorry for the late update, I was celebrating Lunar New Year, to all those who celebrate it too Happy New Year!!)​

@Spectacles: haha omg thanks so much!! Nostalgia for the older game sprites (esp since Silver was my first pokemon game) was a really huge factor in the way I chose to draw their moves xD

So much talking ;v; but necessary at this point I'm afraid

Hope everyone's doing well! We had another bomb cyclone in the northeast so that was scary, be safe everyone!​

Good gracious, I love this art style. The period clothes especially. :D Ngl, I'm a sucker for those turn-of-the-century-through-the-20s looks, and Nell's outfit is on point for that. Idk, in a setting as colorful as this one, I almost feel like I'm watching the beginning of a Ghibli adventure, where there's going to be magic and weirdness. You know ... as opposed to the misery and starvation that's normally associated with period pieces set in the first half of the 20th century. :')

But! Art aside, I'm intrigued by your run so far, especially with how you handle Silver. I've seen him characterized as a cold-hearted jerkass so many times that it's nice to see him actually sympathetic in a way, what with how much he clearly cares about that totodile and all. And given how he baaaasically looks like a petulant child in the profile you offer up in the OP, it's going to be hilarious to see him cross paths with Nell. :D

Def gonna keep an eye out for this one! 8D

aaahh this art style is so charming! I really love how much effort you put into the Pokemon's designs, especially with Totodile and Pidgeot (with the scales and the feathers, they look so real it's amazing). Echoing Val, I really love the period clothing. Joey's hat is so floppy and squishy and Nell's?? whole aesthetic is love?? gosh I love her. She seems like a level-headed girl so far, but I wonder if that mention of her father will play up somehow.

Also, I'm glad you're giving Elm some screentime. I like how he's getting so heated over Kanto's lack of taking his claim seriously. Poor Silver though! It almost seems as if he deserves Totodile. He's so sad-looking I just want to hold him and give him smooches. Makes the fact that Giovanni abandoned him all the more sad.

I'm in love already! keep it up!
