imagine stealing someone's rival. I wonder how that would work, would you get friend zoned? or would you get rival zoned?
Oof, rivaled zone. The worst kind of zone to be in.
Oh my gosh this is so cute. That picnic at the end!! And I love poor Lizzie's concern for the lunch-less mons. She is a gem among villains.
Thanks, I love drawing cute moments like that. She truly is a gem among the rough. Whether that rubs off on the rest of the team awaits to be seen.

Jay is the weakest link... But Jay's brothers would have just find their way off their team since there isn't really anything in it for them.
Sorry for missing a week. I figure it's better to just go back to the regular schedule now so I can keep up my buffer. Anyway, now it's time for the next page.

Author's Notes:
*Gasp! Imaginary police tape?! It's unbreakable for anyone under 13!

*When I saw Hop standing here I thought it meant a rival fight was coming up, so I trained everyone up. It turns out he just wanted to talk, so this Gloria rival fight shows you how it felt.

*In the pokemon world, people would freak out if you said one of your pokemon died. Pokemon dying in battle is extremely rare, to the point that you have to be extremely risky and reckless for someone to die(or run into an evil team, and there's none in galar). Even if Sundae's still alive, Corrin causally bringing up that he died is not going to go down well with most people.

*When two friends are fighting, and not rivals, I don't see them going that hard on eachother. And when your dealing with anarchists, good luck telling them they have to faint their friend to get exp.

This could go two ways. Either Lizzie actually help make the team better people, or the team help make her a worse person. Either way I’m interested to see what happens!

Maybe corrin should have explained that she is doing a nuzlocke. That will clear things up.

Or perhaps both could happen. Grey and grey mortality is always fun.

"Don't worry, I'm just doing a challenge where my pokemon die when they faint." Willingly doing that challenge is only going to get more looks.
I started up another comic. While making the lore around Corrin Koopa I ended up making a lot of other super smash bros lore to. To the point I felt like I needed to make an ask blog to get it out. It's Ask Crazy Hand, and takes place in the same universe as Questionable Influence. So if your interested in QI's smash lore, or just my interpretation of it in general, feel free to leave a question!

Lizzie is just so sweet. I hope she's right about her team. Icarus is a cutie too. They make me appreciate Drilbur more. And Omg Corrin you're gonn a have to at least pretend to care about your "dead" Pokemon, Good Guy or not!

In concept, I find stockpile, spit up and swallow quite interesting. In practice spit up at full power is a 75 base power normal type move and swallow removes your defense buffs when something like recover wouldn't. I've always wanted to try out those moves, but they're never worth using when most of the pokemon who have them have better options available such as rest, or a STAB move.
Lizzzie once again being to pure for this team.
She is, she truly is.
Battle of the squirrels. Ewwww, it barfed!
How many nuts do you wager on this battle, because all of mine goes to Ava. And yeah, someone actually thinking spit up is a viable strategy is ew.

Lizzie the sweet bean for the win! But pretending to care about your pokemon is a total good guy thing. Villians are honest when they don't give two licks about somebody's life, or at least they do by Corrin logic.
Sorry for falling behind on uploading last week, here is the next page.

Author's notes:
*The move stockpile has always interested me. It's three every specific moves for a specific strategy, yet no one uses them. Granted stock pile can only get you up to +3 defenses, spit up is a base 75 power move with all the set up it takes, and rest is just a better version of swallow, not to mention spit up and swallow takes up 2-3 of your pokemon's move slots, and you lose the stockpile boosts after using them.

*I thought it would be interesting if the rival had mostly the same team. It also has great potential for foils, with Icarus's seriousness and lack of hope for our main characters being contrasted by Lizzie's joyful personality and hope that the team can change for the better. Ava's natural strength and self confidence being contrasted by Chestnut's lack of a spine and still being in training. And don't get me started on Ren.

Hey I really like the rival mons interacting with Corrin's team. Sort of gives off Power Puff Girls vs Rowdy Ruff Boys vibes kind of, which is super fun! Also Corrin showing a good guy moment not wanting to wake Yuuya up!

I finally finished reading this nuzlocke. I didn't think the idea would work, but this shortly became one of my faves. I didn't even realise they hadn't reached Milo yet, it's just that endearing. This comic is very cute and sincere. And I may be biased, but I like how you skipped over SwSh's boring plot! Keep up the good work!

Uh, oh. Looks like Jay is either going to die, run away from the battle, or Ren will be kind to Jay and not battle.

Thanks, I was really going for that opposites energy with most of Gloria's team. Besides it's not a good guy moment because Corrin was nice to her fellow bad...
Yuuya, you joined the dark side, right? Because if he didn't she totally is!
I love that last resort is usually anything but Avas last resort.
I just love that irony.

Thank you!!! I'm glad I could pull this crazy idea off! I figured that people would've seen SwiSh's plot a thousand times by the time they read my comic, so I might as well change it up. It's crazy that some nuzlocke comics finish up in the amount of pages QI takes to get to the first gym, but I'm glad that I could keep you engaged with the 200 detours this team takes.

It time to play guess how much self preservation Jay has!
I can already see Jay planning his funeral
RIP, Jay, he had a good run. He... okay I've got nothing.
Wow, that's a lot of replies! Anyway, it's now time for the page preview~

Oh, looks like rens going easy on Jay. Because he said that it was a controlled fight, so I guess Ren is being nice and not murdering Jay.

Look at how far they've become! They went from all out brutality to just before inflicting injuries that'll take multiple weeks to heal brutality.

Ah yes, Ren's definition of easy. Trying not to kill
So to everyone who went in thinking "haha funny joke comic, what could possibly go wrong", I'd like to remind everyone that there are toxic familial relationships in this comic. Ren and Jay is the most toxic aside from outright abandonment/neglect.

Author's notes:
*Remember how the content warning said that there are abusive/neglectful parents/guardians in this comic? If you brushed that off until now, yeah... I'm not going to sugarcoat the kind of trauma those things cause...
*Ren's my favorite member of Gloria's team. He is a massive toxic jerk, but he's interesting to write. I redid the lines part of the fight scene since Ren was just holding Jay to the ground for a very long time. It wasn't brutal enough for the beat-Jay-until-just-before-serious-injury vibe I was going for.
*Remember back on page 15 when Corrin trained up Yuuya by holding Rookidees in place. The consequences of their actions has come back to fight them.

I’m very interested to see what happens between ren and jay. I feel like this can take multiple directions!
