The_Long_Way_II.png


Welcome back! Or, if you're new here, welcome! This story is a continuation of The Long Way, so you might wanna read that. Or, don't, because I hate most of those early pages, and there's a recap page of Kanto's events.

The Long Way is the ongoing story of Leo Fada, just a normal guy from a normal world, who one day finds himself in the pokemon world he used to always play the games for. Of course, reality is often a cruel joke, and he soon realizes this isn't a dream. And then it just keeps getting worse.

Updates Mondays!


Rule #1: You can only catch the first pokemon you find on a route.
Rule #1A: Every pokemon must be nicknamed
Dupes Clause: If you have caught a pokemon previously, you can't catch it, or any other pokemon in its line, again, and it doesn't count as your first pokemon.
Shiny Clause: If you encounter a shiny pokemon, and it wouldn't be your first pokemon for the route, you can still catch and use it if you wish.
Rule #2: If a pokemon faints, it dies.
Rule #3 (One Big Happy Pokedex: Every prior region's pokedex counts towards your current one, impacting dupes clause.
Rule #3A: Alternate split evolutions are still allowed, as they are technically a seperate pokemon.

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.
Congrats on finishing your first nuzlocke! It was very inspiring to see your artistic growth throughout the first comic's run, and I'm so excited to see what you'll do with the sequel! Especially since I spot a Chikorita starter, you don't often see those used in nuzlockes!

Yup! Wanted to not go with another water starter, and, well, never actually used a Chikorita before. So this is actually the start of an accidental trend of using my least used starter of each region, going forward.

Funnily enough, it's more that Kanto is a prequel to the rest of the story, if that makes sense? Trust me, things start getting wild from here on out

:yay:

OH SHIT, WE BACK! That's right, after a couple weeks of me trying my best to get a proper buffer (and half that time spent doing jack shit), we're finally going to start posting pages. First, is a little recap of Kanto, for those that might not want to read through it, or needs a little refresher of some important beats.

Next week? Next week, actual pages return...with Page 48! That's right, I'm using legacy numbering. Cause big page numbers makes me feel good

And it's crazy to think that his journey's only starting out still. Just wait till you see how he develops going forward.

Don't worry, I totally getcha. The Manic saga was one of my favorite nuzlockes back in the day, so I totally get why some of those themes and styles might have blended over. But trust me, there'll be plenty of answers earlier on in this, than in that.

Just being bounced from one roller coaster to the next, it's wild.

And we're back! Where is Leo? How is Leo? Why is Leo? All good questions. But you'll just have to keep asking them, cause we got a lil while before there's any answers.

Yeah, being named after colors is too early 2000s.


IT BE HER! Also, uh, other people, but they don't matter as much as Venus.

Looks like Leo's gonna be back at it with breezing through early game, and there surely won't be several more pages devoted to him and Venus...right?

Oh, and, uh, Page 50's next week. Be hype.

Leo should really invest in a bullet proof vest. He's been shot twice now and I have a feeling it'll happen again at the Johto league. Venus is such a sweet bean! She must be protected. I swear if the professor named her Venus, because the leaf attracts bug types for her to eat or something(though she would probably run away from them).

I mean he was well aware last time, it's just that eventually he got so entrenched that it was hard to tell. Gotta remember, he's grown up playing these as games, so he's gonna be pretty familiar.

Well now I'm just all happy and stuff. Honestly, I'm kinda amazed too. I actually, like...feel good about my art now. So that's refreshing.

What, you're saying that Leo, the boiling pot of emotions that he is, jumping headfirst into danger, may get shot again? Why that's just ridiculous, who else is there to even shoot the guy? 🤔

And no, that is not the theming, but nice thought. You'll see the theme soon enough, cause Venus isn't the only starter popping up here...

50 Pages.

It's weird just how many that feels for me, when I know that plenty of other comics get into the hundreds. But, for me, it's a sign that like...things are actually progressing. I stopped working on this comic for almost 10 months because I didn't think I could ever actually get to this point. And now I have.

As for what actually happened in this page? Well, lemme give a little clearer explanation, if it wasn't exactly clear. According to the world at large, Leo's dead, murdered by Danny after defeating him, and now Lance is champion. So uh, talk about a cover up. What does that mean going forward? Who's to say? There's a lot I plan to fit into these next 50 pages, so I hope you enjoy the sprinkling of info. Because I do plan for more questions to be answered this time around. You just gotta give it time.

So here's to 50 more. See y'all at 100.

We'll be taking next week off as I get my bearings and build up a slight buffer. I had to make a choice if I would rather take the break now, or over Labor Day weekend, and I choose now.

Venus is such a cutie! I'm sure she will help Leo through all this.

Hoo boy, that's a lot to take in. Being considered dead by the world while your murderer takes your spot can't be good for him right now.
