Welcome to the second arc of Shiro's saga! If you haven't read the first part, you can find it here: Shiro's Trial, a Nuzlocke Adventure in Kanto.

THE RULES:
1.: If a Pokémon faints, they are considered dead. Release them.
2.: Only the first encounter in any area may be caught. An "Area" is defined by a section of the map that has any 2 of these 3 traits: has a unique name, is separated by a transition/fade to black, has a significantly different encounter table. This rule does not come into effect until after pokéballs are obtained. Scripted/forced encounters may be skipped. Also: Dupes clause is for losers.
- 2.a.: Gift Pokémon do not count as encounters and therefore can be accepted freely (one per source).
- 2.b.: Shinies are fair game.
- 2.c.: In-game trades are permitted provided that I catch the requested pokémon as a first encounter.

If you've got questions for Shiro and the team, she has an Ask blog on Tumblr! Click here to ask!

Sightings of them in the wild are rare, as they prefer to stay indoors with their art tablet and little siblings.

IT'S HAPPENIIIIIIING!

Ok, time to grab my popcorn and enjoy the ride.

Despite being a Grass-type, Casual is a flaming lesbian. Fire and Grass don't usually mix, but somehow it works out here.
HERE WE GO!

A brand new adventure begins, and it's not exactly on the brightest note. I'm sure hoping that Mewtwo actually figures things out.

Count me as one who is aboard the hype train!

Robot lover by day, robot lover by night as well. This Pokemon spits out a comic page about once a month before scuttling back into its room.
Alright, here we go!
I love that, for all Mewtwo's power and abilities and schemes, he's still a child, haha. It's funny to see Shiro (rightfully) scold him for dumping her in a new place without any Pokemon. I wonder how the Littleroot folk will react to Shiro returning there. Consider me hyped!

This ghost is happy with food, rest, quiet and cuddles. They may try to be edgy or mysterious, but are often told that they present as the opposite.
omg good luck!!! aaaaaa it's happening

poor Mewtwo does not exactly think things through do they, it's almost like they could've brought along Shiro's champion team to help her fight the two people who want to summon the land titans. but no, just stranding her in Hoenn is clearly the best idea ;p

If you encounter a wild Kadew, best practice is to gently bully her into remembering that she loves to draw. She forgets, sometimes.
Big brain mewtwo with the big brain plans. Incredible forethought and planning, here. Exactly what I'd expect out of an overgrown housecat tbh. I'm really looking forward to seeing how she explains her presence in the moving van to the first people she sees in smalltown hoenn

Buckle in, it's going to be one hell of a roller coaster.

He's still got a lot to learn.

"You´ll figure something out"

Shiro only wishes he would disappear - reality is far more interesting.

HERE WE GO!

Mewtwo and Shiro will figure things out together . . . or Shiro might just figure things out without his help.

Alright, here we go!

Shiro lives with her mom in Kanto, but she visits Hoenn every couple of months when she can. Her showing up out of the blue is a regular occurrence.

Give him a break - this is his first apocalypse.

Eggs are fair game, but I didn't use any in this run.

Mewtwo has a big ego for a big baby.

UPDATE TIME!

A bit later than I intended, but I started a new job recently so my spare time is at a premium.

If you're in a hurry, don't ask a Slakoth for help.

(and if you're wondering how Shiro got in, Norman leaves a spare key buried behind the house.)

I was aiming for a weekly update schedule, but with my new job I don't know if that'll be possible. Still, I'll keep at it and update when I can. In the meantime, you can ask Shiro and the team some questions over yonder at her Ask Blog!

Dutch gave an amazing effort opening the window, best Slakoth. And ooooooo, I was curious what starter Shiro would pick! Atlantis is a very fitting name, this guy already looks so cute.

Oh man, I am so excited for this run! After the Kanto comic ended, I've been waiting in anticipation for more of Shiro's journey!

As a fellow Emerald Mudkip user, I wish you luck in what's to be Shiro's greatest trial yet!

Love that Shiro's just like: welp, I gotta do a thing now, so I'ma do that thing and I'ma figure some shit out. I love that we're basically in her home town region, so it'll be interesting to see how she interacts with some characters!

Has never heard of a work schedule, so either writes three chapters in a day or one in three weeks. Invite to a DnD game to instantly befriend.
Yay, Mudkip!
I also love how Dutch only talks in one character every two spaces.

Dutch is cute. Almost reminds me of my cats with how they're chilling by the window.

Is that a poster of the Bell Tower?! Took me a couple reads to notice that.

The good stuff continues!

Atlantis! What a cute name for a Mudkip : D
Fun fact: I was originally going to name him Tsunami. However, I started playing this run in 2011, just after the Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami, so it felt a bit insensitive at the time to use that word as a name. Turns out I took so long getting to it that I didn't need to worry after all.

Dutch gave an amazing effort opening the window, best Slakoth. And ooooooo, I was curious what starter Shiro would pick! Atlantis is a very fitting name, this guy already looks so cute.
You're right, it is a very fitting name.

Oh man, I am so excited for this run! After the Kanto comic ended, I've been waiting in anticipation for more of Shiro's journey!

As a fellow Emerald Mudkip user, I wish you luck in what's to be Shiro's greatest trial yet!
Another Fun fact: I was going to use Torchic instead, and actually started the run . . . but I wiped at Wattson. So I changed to Mudkip.

Gasp, oh man, I didn't realize there was a new thread up on the forums from you (though I saw the first comic on DA apparently XD

Love that Shiro's just like: welp, I gotta do a thing now, so I'ma do that thing and I'ma figure some shit out. I love that we're basically in her home town region, so it'll be interesting to see how she interacts with some characters!
Shiro is in her element now, and she knows or has met a few of the gym leaders. There will be some fun interactions along the way.

Haha! Dutch reminds me of Flash from Zootopia

once a week might be too much work
how about biweekly?
That's what I was going for!

Biweekly could work. I think I'm just going to update whenever, without worrying about a schedule. Less stressful that way.

You fool, now I can break into Norman's house whenever I want! A supply of falsely obtained Balance Badges will flood the black market! MUWAHAHAHAHAHA

Atlantis is adorable and I will love him forever
Ah, but you don't know where he buries the key.

Yay, Mudkip!
I also love how Dutch only talks in one character every two spaces.
G o t t a g o f a s t.

It's Atlantis time!

Dutch is cute. Almost reminds me of my cats with how they're chilling by the window.

Is that a poster of the Bell Tower?! Took me a couple reads to notice that.

It is! It's from the Pokemon Center poster collection - if they weren't sold out I'd buy them myself.
Update Time!
This one ended up longer than I meant it too, but things felt rushed so I had to add more.

"I didn't know that you're a girl. Dad, Prof. Birch, said that our new next-door neighbor is a Gym Leader's kid, so I assumed you'd be a guy."
I always hated Brendan. His dialogue came off as condescending and sexist to me. So, Atlantis puts him in his place.

It's been pretty hot around here lately, and it's hard to focus on anything when you're sweaty and gross - nonetheless, I will continue working. We're just getting to the good stuff. Don't forget, you can ask Shiro and the team (and Brendan, but why would you?) some questions over yonder at her Ask Blog!

Did Shiro knows about Brendan since they werea kids?
Seems like the little town does not care for someone who orginated form there becoming a big shot in a different region...

Ooh so she is still in the same timeline, why did I think Mewtwo would transport Shiro to some alternate timeline or to the past...

forget to ask. what game is this run based one? R/S/E? OR/AS?
