Painfully out of place and out of her league, hybrid Fault Ishimoto registers for the first ever region–wide Kalos League Tournament. As she traverses the region and meets her fellow competitors along the way, she begins to realize something much more sinister and dangerous is happening just below the surface.

  • Only capture the first Pokemon encountered in each area. If it faints, no second chances.
  • Immediately after being caught, new Pokemon must be traded via Wonder Trade for a random Pokemon, and the Pokemon traded back becomes a teammate.
    • If the traded Pokemon is above the level threshold for obeying the trainer, or is more than double the level of the Pokemon on the team with the highest level, it must be traded away.
    • Shiny clause is on; if a wild encounter is a shiny, it can be caught and used without being traded away, regardless of whether or not it’s the first encounter in that area.
    • Duplicates clause is on; if a traded Pokemon is a duplicate or in the same evolution line as a Pokemon already received over trade, it can be traded again for a new Pokemon. Two more attempts are granted to get a non-duplicate trade.
    • If no party or boxed Pokemon can learn a needed HM, a Pokemon can be caught for only using that HM, and then must be boxed.
  • If a Pokemon faints in battle, it’s considered dead and must be stored in the box permanently.
  • Legendaries can be used, as long as they match all other requirements.
  • Fault cannot leave the party under any circumstance, and if she dies, it’s an automatic game over.
  • Xerneas may be caught and used only for the final Lysandre fight, but cannot be used in battle from that point onward.

OOOOH BOY ITS FINALLY HERE!!!! EVERYTHING LOOKS SO GOOD!!!! the color palettes carry a lot of emotion, strong panel composition and body language
I never got a chance to read the first draft so this is all new to me, your characters all look super interesting,,,
starting out with those scenes from the future is really unique and a great way to set the tone/introduce the themes of the comic. With just four pages posted its already clear what you're going for!

this pokemon is actually a bit lazy and very smart in maths. you can train it, but don't do it too hard
Woot woot, a comic! Awesome! I'm excited for your journey, gl and hf!

If you encounter a wild Kadew, best practice is to gently bully her into remembering that she loves to draw. She forgets, sometimes.
Aw yeaaaah! It's here! I remember so so long ago, back around when i was just a nuzlocke baby, reading the old version of this. I thought it was dead for so long, but now here it is! Back from the dead and better than ever! I love your opening here, all the flashes of things past and things to come, no context but just enough content to make us hungry for more. I can't wait to see this brilliant resurrection unfold further!

You’re back! I’m so excited to see you again. I was really hoping you’d post a comic when I saw you had joined. You’re art is as absolutely stunning as ever, and I can’t wait to see more of Fault Line.

Good luck, and happy nuzlocking!

Giant headmouth is as inconvenient as it looks, how unfortunate for our protagonist. Also ouch that tagging method seems excessively invasive. I sure hope nothing bad happens relating to it in some far future page. Also you have nothing to worry about from me regarding still being interesting the second go around, I remember precisely nothing from the old version except for the design of the mawile girl. My head is empty and my expectations are full.

Oh gosh the drool from the giant mouth/horns, that must be so embarassing poor girl. Also can I say that I love all your character designs again? Because they're all so bright and fun to look at. Carrie Carols just oozes charisma and I can almost hear her voice up there, excellent work!

This Pokémon clings to Sharpedo and shares in its prosperity. When its Sharpedo is attacked, Krisantyne will fight alongside it!
Hiiii I finally got to read this comic, and it's wonderful!! (Pun not intended, oops.) The art looks so good and tasty, and being shown all these detailed environments and different kinds of Hybrids right at the beginning makes me feel incredibly immersed in the world.
Can't wait to learn more about Fault! The way she looked at her hand after shaking Ollie's paw... makes you wonder what her life has been like before.

And can I just say how amazing it is to see a Wonderlocke comic? Like, it's always exciting to see what new team members are like (especially in a Gijinka setting with the creative designs that come with it), but in a Wonderlocke it's.... that but more! Yeah! I'm very excited for this. 😆

Oooo I'm actually super excited to see this fight, I can already imagine the action looking lively in your style! also this whole time I thought this was a randomized run and it just hit me what wonderlocke means when i saw the rival team was vanilla lol
