There. Finally. The battle is over. The chapter is not though aaaaaaahcrazylongchapter ... anyway, yeah. Hyper Beam. You can buy the TM in the celadon store so I taught it to Jojjo because why not Hyper Beam's awesome (actually not really late in game but at this point there was barely anything that could take a hyper beam to the face and live to tell the tale).

And the battle was way less dramatic. Think Kangaskhan didn't even use Mega Punch because Jojjo was still in her yellows and 2HKO-ed it easily (used HYperBeam for real though, as a dramatic finale ... and back then I thought - damn this is gonna be so cool in the comic!!!). Anyway, thanks for being patient. And for all your lovely comments. And all new readers: yes I do update still. Just very irregulary.

EEE! You cannot imagine my glee seeing this comic updated! XD

I'm thrilled that Jojo has made it! I mean, her wings are gone, but... But... ...Poor Jojo. At least the family is all together.

... This is SO cool.
And that you're able to make this battle look so clear, dynamic and dramatic, while the real one wasn't...
It's amazing :D
And yeah, the Hyper Beam was AWESOME.

That was beautiful. I was really convinced that Jojjo was going to die.
Your nuzlocke has to be my favorite, it's both humorous, plot-oriented, and very morbid. My nuzlocke would probably suck if I'm not drawing inspiration from people like you.

You absolute sadist. I was certain she died and then it turns out you weren't even close to losing her in the game. Shame on you, playing with our emotions like that.
And by that, I mean 'keep it up'. You've got mad writing skills, building suspense like you do. I have to say, this was one of the most satisfying moments in the story so far.

I just want to say that I started reading this about two days ago, when someone posted a link to it on Reddit. And this is without a doubt one of the most fantastically engrossing and absorbing things I've read on the internet in months and months. I'm almost in despair that I've caught up with your updates, because reading through nine chapters one after the after, going through a whole rollercoaster of emotions was awesomely investing.

I love the way you draw these, and I think special mention has to go to the lightning storm and every time any autumn-coloured trees make an appearance. (And good lord, did you make Celadon City beautiful.)

The plot is interesting, and I might even say inspired, while still following the journey taken in the games. (But of course, you already know that, because hey, this IS quite literally based on a playthrough, after all.)

I love the characters, with Kato and Jojjo being personal favourites, with Cogito a close second. But you've given them all wonderful personalities with good interaction between them. Perhaps my only criticism of the entire thing so far is that I don't feel that Swann and Bimm have had as much focus as the other characters, development-wise. But aside from that, I can't help but see this series as more or less perfect.

Also, how often do you typically update this, if you have a schedule? What I'd love to be able to do is to stop reading for a while, then just splurge on a few pages at once for maximum emotions.

Again, though, I just have to say: fantastic work.

@hafting: You can see him reach for a pokeball in the second to last panel, and there's the red glow from someone being sent out behind all the rubble, so I'm sure he survives.

(plus he shows up later in the game.)

Heh, wow. That was a fantastic end to the fight. I really appreciate the way you're willing to portray your characters struggling instead of just roflstomping everything like in some comics. It adds so much more tension and drama to the story, and credibility to the antagonists.

By the way, I love your interpretation of Giovanni. He's a real, play-to-win trainer, he's good, and best of all, he knows it.

reply

@Tracky: QLOCK updates on an irregular basis, depending on how busy she is it seems, but when she does it is in groups. I usually check back about once a week, and when there is an update it usually contains about 5-15 pages, which I promptly read with glee.

@Qlock: I just wanted to let you know this is by far the best, the very best webcomic I have read in a long long time. You not only took the nuzlocke challenge and turned it into a dangerous new adventure but actually made me, a grown man cry and feel the tension. You've written an amzing story and drawn it well. Im letting as many people know about this amazing story as possible and wanted you to know we really appreciate it. Thank you so much.

Just a thought by a nobody but...

reply

@Qlock: I couldn't help but notice all your characters are somewhat dysfunctional. Poetic to a fault, grumpy, blindly loyal, weak in battles, or just at a plain disadvantage in type. I think a shedinja who was abandoned by it's other half [ninjask] would fit in perfectly. Just to balance it out since it would be invincible to almost anything with it's wonder guard, how about it is very shy [or in love with another member of the team?]. Perhaps a good joke would be for said shedinja to say it is a SHELL of it's FORMER SELF. I think the pun would be glorious. But anyways, your dark writing of a universe considered innocent by most others really is just spell-binding. Exceptional work!

This is amazing. I randomly found this on the comment page of a reddit post. I'm glad I checked it out.

I really hope no more of Robin's Pokemon die... Every time one of them is in a pinch I legit panic. I was saving Primm and Swan as fodder (I wouldn't mind if they had to die) but now I'm not so sure! I'm starting to like them!

Anyway, great chapter, awesome, thrilling fight scene. I was terrified for a bit there. I'm so glad Jo made it. And I think she'll still tough it out without her wings.

Great comic, looking forward to more.

I love the gritty art style and the water colors and the criminal on the run take on the traditional storyline. Everything about this is fantastic. Please please please make more.
