IT. IS. OVER. This chapter that is. I've realised I gotta pick up the pacing a bit from now on ... anyway. Hope you enjoyed it! I'm so glad (and almost shocked) that I've managed to complete Chapter 9. That's almost 100 pages!!! Next chapter should (if I manage to stick to my plan) start in February sometime. So see ya then! thanks, as allways, for your feedback!

About Cogito

reply

EDIT: Dialouge on page 97 has been changed.

Because .. well ... I seem to have screwed this up. I like to make things vague, but apparently I was too vague this time. Cogito isn't leaving the team. She planned to, but Robin's comment about 'fighting them together' makes her change her mind. so. SORRY all, I messed up!

I'm a bit bittersweet about this... I may not have seen Cogito in the best light, but I still enjoyed her character. If she really is leaving the team, I will miss her. Nidoqueen are boss.

I really liked Cogito as a character. She was very interesting to watch. Maybe we'll see her again, maybe not, but it was cool to follow her development and storyline.

Cogito

reply

Is Cogito leaving the team? I saw this as her trying to leave like she always does, only Robin said just the right thing this time for the nidoqueen to finally join the team in earnest. If she is leaving, I'll miss her.

Scenes like this really make me wonder how this corresponds to the actual in-game Nuzlocke playthrough. I knew that someone would leave the team to make room for the Eevee, but I never would have expected it to be Cogito.

I think it's going to be a Flareon. Flamethrower/Shadow Ball/Return make great coverage. Really an underrated Eeveloution.

@Haffels:
In Gen 3 it's pretty good due to Shadow Ball being physical and all.

Beyond that... it's good movepool consists of Return, Iron Tail, Superpower and Flare Blitz, the latter of which it only just got in Gen 6, and Iron Tail and Superpower only being available through Gen 5 move tutors. It's really sad how much it got gipped... but due to shadow ball being physical, that was at least a good niche it has in Gen 2/3.

I am so glad Cogito is staying. She's my fav!

Just read the whole comic until this page, REALLY emotional.

For a moment, I expected Giovanni to capture the Nidoqueen with a masterball, seeing that he's friends with Sylphs president, forcing a Blastoise Puke to fight her against their own wills, it would have been an awesome finale, hope you surprise us with something even more amazing!

Fantastic.

reply

@Qlock: Read your whole comic, start to finish, in 3 days. I just happened upon it from a facebook friend...and wow. The honest truth is that almost all fan work, be it art or fiction, is just god-awful. But what you have managed to make is fantastic. The comedy is top notch, the action scenes are well done and heavily varied, and the characters are all memorable and lovable (or hateable). This is obviously a work of love, and I'm looking forward to seeing where it goes.

The most profound aspect of this work is that it realizes a "realistic" pokemon world. I had dismissed all attempts to rationalize the fictional worlds, but through extreme brutality and complete disregard for life, you have crafted a feasible take on the society. Bravo!

@Haffels:
Eh... Flareon's unlikely to survive much before it can get up a boost. 95 special attack still isn't that good, and the weakness to stealth rocks and some of the most common attacking moves absolutely wrecks it.

Oh yeah we're still talking about the nuzlocke. Uhh... I think Jolteon's the best choice if she gets an electric TM honestly. Then again, this is back when Flareon was pretty damn good... *shrug*

@Kurona: I know Flareon really sucks in competitive, but she needs an answer to those pesky Psychic types. Honestly, if Puck dies, I think Vaporeon would be the best of the 3. (Pretty sure Jojjo'll die next. Shadowball> Twinneedle.)

reply

I hear you read a lot of these. I just wanted to say, came across this not too long ago while browsing around Nuzlocke challenge stuff.

The world you have presented strikes a chord, deep within me that I always knew was there when I played Pokemon; what it would actually be like. You do this very
well, openly embracing a lot of the controversies and running with them. It's funny sometimes. The other half, it's outright horrifying.

...I look forward to Lavender Town, and what you may have in mind for there.
