Close Calls - A Pokemon Nuzlocke Challenge

Welcome! This is my first comic and nuzlocke challenge I'm tackling. As Emerald was the first Pokemon game I was exposed to, I wanted to see if I could beat it with the risks of nuzlockes. The general rules of this run are as follow:
  1. Once a Pokemon faints, it is considered dead and will be moved to the PC for good.
  2. Only one Pokemon can be caught per route, town, or cave/forest. Shiny Pokemon are the exception.
  3. Each caught Pokemon will be given a nickname to grow attached to even further.
I don't have a concrete schedule in mind, but I plan to post pages weekly, or more often depending on how busy my life is. Thanks for reading!

Tired or inspired. Loves Cappuccino.
Oh it's lovely to see a new Hoenn Comic again (These get rare nowadays..!) I'm curious where your story will take us, it looks nice so far!

oh fuck oh shit my dots...............................................................................................................................
Aaaaaah, this style is refreshing. It’s got a lot of character to it, in a Sunday morning paper kind of way. I don’t think I’ve seen a comic that has quite this... mood? In a while. Straightforward and comedic, but not dry and cynical. I appreciate it.

I’ll be following. Good luck and happy Nuzlocking!

@Bug Thanks for the encouragement! I hope I get enough fun (and sad >_<) moments in my Nuzlocke to share with everyone.

If you encounter a wild Kadew, best practice is to gently bully her into remembering that she loves to draw. She forgets, sometimes.
Simple and straightforward, this takes me right back to early nuzlocke reading days. I can already see the seeds of a powerful duo growing between our hero and his torchic in that one panel where they just lock eyes for the first time. The style of color coded characters keeps everything clear yet probably simple to color, pretty clever choice! Good luck entering the wonderful world of comic making, may all your updates be on time!

@Kadew I'm glad I could give some nostalgia! The simple style works for me, also since I'm still learning the ropes of digital drawing :)
@Cirr Thanks! We've all been Torchic's mood..

Misread Guac's first statement and ended up at a very surprising conclusion. So here, have some fanart.

Life's very crazy, so some responses and I'll have the next page soon.

@0 Anonymous Wow I can't believe how closely the A and C make an N with that font...prob shouldve seen it coming >-<. But here's a little inspired comic just to celebrate Guac's secrets
@Kadew He's an adorable little lotad, simple but so lovable.
