At long last. It's ready.
... on December 24th ;D
Howdy! If this is your first time meeting me, you can call me Gray! I'm an aspiring writer n' stuff, and one of my biggest goals was to start a comic based on a Nuzlocke run. And here we go! My goal is to improve my writer, art, and perspective during the run. Also, it'd be nice to improve my punctuality, but ya know... procrastination
This will also be readable on Tapas, though until December 24th, it will not be published.
As of now, I am not sure what the update schedule is going to be, but I will aim to have the prologue finished in 3 weeks (1 page per week). I will need to draw more pages to gage how much time I need to take.
(also, i didn't do the post game. heck that)​

Oh yo, it's cool to see your comic in action! I remember seeing your Litten refs a while ago when you were trying to nail down how you wanted to draw the fuzzy bugger, and thought they were pretty cool.

Lookin' forward to how this turns out! See ya in like a week lol

Aaa this is such a cool and intriguing premise, and a cute art style with wonderful designs! I'm always excited to see more Gen 7 nuzlockes, and I'm so excited to see your take on Ultra Sun.

Thank you! I'm super excited too, there are so many characters I can't wait to introduce and things I'm excited to draw!

Aaaaa, thank you! I'm happy to see that people are interested in the story and art ;u;
honestly, I'm a big fan of Alola, so I'm super excited that I was able to complete Ultra Sun

Kalani and Litten are my children, I am also super excited to have these two in full swing.

Litten squad all the way, wondering how this will play out

another family destroyed by dabbing :crying:

Jokes aside, interesting take on the family. Gives a lot more oomph to coming back to Alola given the circumstances of leaving for Kanto, and Emil as the traditional Kukui is an interesting twist I didn't see coming w/ the description.

Now that would be a heck of a surprise for sure, them being the Faller. Def seems he was in some policey stuff, will be fun to see how that develops and what went down with him and Nanu.

Oh man I'm excited for all this already < W< Just the whole family thing, then some tips about what may be going on already with the Ultra Wormhole stuff that the dad was looking at in that one panel.

Also I see a young Nanu up in here! Loving the way yu draw Pokemon so far, they're all very distinct and FLUFFY

Nanu is honestly a favorite of mine, so I did want to give him a slightly more signifigant role

Well that sucks

the fam is goin through it. thank you!

This page was a lot of fun to draw! i knew what I wanted to draw for the third panel and it came out so good. And i love drawing fluffy pokemon, so expect more ;)

also, i noticed that I forgot to mention mom and dad's name. That's poor planning on my part. sorry about that, y'all! rest assured, in the first page, we'll learn their names

Man, this poor babu, bullied over something like that :'( though I feel like that's something that could be proven? Though that's me getting ahead of myself, I wonder if Kalani might have tried to do so and people just continued not to believe or if as a child she just withdrew because of the bad experiences its brought :'(

Catch me teleporting directly to Kanto to give tiny baby Kalani a hug!! Hopefully things will get better for her when she gets back to Alola and makes some real (human) friends ;_;

Me @ description: "Dad is what!? :c"

Oh, phew, the dead Kukui is not the shirt-hating, himbo Kukui we all know and love. 😌 Still, grieving a human is one way to start a nuzlocke. An USUM nuzlocke, no less....

Also, bullying. Kids can be cruel. D:<
