Hey! I really love reading the Nuzlocke challenges. I've read After Armageddon and I'm working through that series, and I read a couple buglockes by Dustox that I found really fun. I'd like some suggestions on popular completed runs to check out. I'm leery about Nuzlockes set in Pokemon Black and White after the one nuzlocke I encountered that had the pokeballs brainwashing pokemon and the trainers being utterly oblivious to the system while battles were encouraged being fought to the death. Anything that focuses too heavily on pokemon abuse tends to be a bit much for me.

So, hit me up with suggestions?

Ok clearly there aren't a lot of suggestions coming in, so I'm gonna start with the ones I've finished.

The lore of this story is really complicated, and I love the unique dynamic of actually being forced to play day and night in the game. The bonds with the pokemon, the characters, and the unique way it's told is utterly compelling. I actually stayed up late to finish reading this one and was left hanging by the ending. Definitely worth a read.

This isn't my favorite style of Nuzlocke, as it's rather tongue in cheek, but it was enjoyable to read and watch someone take the world by storm using bugs.

The sequel to the previous Nuzlocke. I absolutely love the switch to more in depth story telling, while still staying with what was previously established in the much more comedic previous tale. It was thrilling to read, and the surprise with the legendaries at the end turned this into a very fresh take.

It starts pretty jokey but quickly turns into a far more compelling story that drags you along with cute art.

This is one of the few Black and White Nuzlockes that wasn't so grim dark it left me traumatized. I did fall completely in love with the characters. Secret: baby Joltik is my favorite. The art is also incredible

The first two stories in this series are absolutely stunning. The author isn't afraid to take liberties in going outside of set events while still staying true to the spirit of the regions. While I feel the later stories are more repetitive and lose the punch that made the first story so incredible, it's still a must read.

Oh, so when Onix eats rocks and soil, it's fine, but when I do it, it's suddenly "an affront to nature" and "destroying Mrs. Crenshaw's zen garden"?
One of the easiest ways to find what runs to read the Extravaganza threads, which were sort of like an end of the year awards that the community votes on. I don't think any of those threads were ported when we changed forums, but you can find 2018's thread here.

This Pokémon is currently kerfuffled by this feature. Kerfuffled isn't a word.
You can always look around in What's New and see if anything piques your interest.

I died from the softness of this story. The beautiful art and the way the pokemon don't talk just blended together to create a really gentle world. I adored reading it and recommend it to everyone.

Not sure if you're looking for only finished runs, but here's some comics that I'm keeping up with that have a chapter or two completed
Kurukkoo! - Gen 1 with lots of birds and cute character interactions Pretty short read, ~30 regular sized pages
Burn Away - Gen 6 Gijinkalocke, made me cry at times. Very story focused. ~40 long pages
Fiasco - Gen 2, don't be fooled by the first few pages, this run has beautiful art and tense moments. Short read, ~12 long pages
Cammy's Silver Nuzlocke - Gen 2, really funny and good quality run. ~40 long pages
The Pokedex Project - Gen 3 (leafgreen), first nuzlocke comic I read. Story focused, but also follows canon. ~60 pages varying in length

I recommend looking through the fan challenge runs because there's a lot more out there. The extravaganza will be coming around again soon too, which is great for finding new reads.
