Wild Purple's like to hoard small rocks that interest them. What is it that they find interesting about said rocks? Even they don't know!

Howdy howdy howdy! Welcome to the beginning of the Endurance Series!​

endurance_in_our_blood_cover_by_purplechug_delrf7v-fullview.jpg


When a pokemon is stolen from Professor Elm's Lab, Nagrom and her partner, Harold, set out on a journey to save their lost friend. Who will they meet along the way, and what will these two dorks do when faced with way too many blockades for their liking? Find out next time on ENDURANCE: IN OUR BLOOD


In Our Blood is a Soul Silver run that updates 3 times a week on Tuesday, Friday, and Sunday at 2pm MST (though if I need to take a break or focus on something else it will drop to two or even one update/week so as to give me more time to keep the backlog up). I'm mostly doing this series to learn how to make comic stuff (and develop the characters because I will reuse as many characters as possible)

-only catch first pokemon per route. (This includes the pre-pokeball routes.)
-if first encounter faints or flees, NO second chance is given.
-No duplicates or pokemon of the same evolutionary line as an already owned pokemon
-Only shiny pokemon are exempted from the catching and duplicates rules.
-nickname every pokemon
-if a pokemon faints, it's considered dead and is perma-boxed
-only pokeballs allowed are pokeball, great ball, ultra ball, and dusk ball
-can only have five empty pokeballs on hand at a time
-no non-natural healing items can be bought or used (for example: berries and herbs are allowed, while potions of all kinds are not)

(I do hope I did this right ;;w;;, god help me for updating, I have no idea how to do that)​

Comic artist. Idiot. Has far too many active projects for his own sanity. Unreliable when it comes to updates on his non-comic endeavours.
Awwwwwwwww yes! It's here!
(Also, seems to be a fine start to the thread tbh.)

Ayyyyy I finally read this! Love it!!
Your Pokémon designs are excellent, and everyone is super expressive. You go all in on stretching and squashing the faces and poses to make them emote, it's such a dynamic and fun style!
I also love the balance between drama and humor, it works great! I absolutely lost it at Nicky using Flash by emitting a lighthouse beam from her mouth, that's the best thing I've ever seen fflkjfsdlk

Thank you! I figure in my world it makes the most sense that even if you cant understand pokemon naturally, there would be people who want to learn it haha.
Silver will eventually reveal that he's been lucky in how successful most of his sneakiness has been XD

Thank you! I've been VERY excited for this page thats for sure. So many things revealed with it! The SoA reference (I freakin ADORE the Ranger games, especially SoA), the effect of the signal shown on the Lapras (also designing that thing was fun, a very neat exercises in style), and the braille on the great ball, it's been a delight to see everyone react to all the pieces!!

This pokemon spends entirely too much time tending to plants. It likes to take care of other pokemon but often forgets it has actual responsibilities.
