Webcomic Profile: It's a hard life


It's a hard life
Robin is ten years old and travels through Kanto with her pokémon to find a place to call home. This is a story about struggle, survival and friendship in a cruel world.


This is a Nuzlocke comic. Contains swearing, violence and death. And sometimes some gore.

Updates are sadly quite irregular but I have no plans on giving up on it anytime soon!

Well, I guess, that explains how the skeleton in page 36 got his head split.

I think that Flareon will go crazy and kill Jojjo.

@Kurona: Beedrill using Brick Break on kangaskhan (C:9 P:65) was essentially the main tell for me

Still doing great
Nice job on this still. You were right to choose not to include the cursed Gastly - this chapter had enough going on that it would have muddied the waters. :)

Didn't really know this was a nuzlocke of the remake; doesn't really say anywhere and it was such a bad remake that there were no obvious differences included aside from sevii islands... where'd you find out it was FRLG as opposed to RBG?

@Kurona: problem is that this is the remake where the special split did exist. sadly flareon is pretty poor up until the recent games where it gets decent moves that compliment its attack stat

Jolteon is the best in terms of stats. I have a feeling that fire will scar the eevee from accepting a fire stone. That or only encourage it. The "we need a fire type" hint dropping helps.
