Robin is ten years old and travels through Kanto with her pokemon 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.

Just great
Once again, I love your comic.
I felt a little sorry for Koga at first when Gio picked on him, but at the end he endeed up being a jerk, I almost wished to see Goivanni wipe the floor with him
FIN




Not really but the worst is about to begin.
as usual...
Good work! Don't give up :)
Yayyy, I thought I'd check for updates after three years! Thanks so much for concluding this for us, it's such incredible work <3
Please make more!
Just got into this series yesterday and stayed up all night reading it! I could not stop reading it. Everything is so cleverly written, all the characters are so flushed out, and the story just keeps pulling me in. I loved all the queen song references in the chapter titles and I hope to see more in the future because this became my favorite webcomic!
It just now occurred to me that you've had to face really bad type match ups in game for the sake of your comic's storyline, since Robin didn't see any of this coming. D: That makes your likelihood of... failure a lot more scary.
Robin's not afraid of violent death one bit! :L Only minds when she's losing. This is really stupid-funny, in the good way I mean, the best way.
That Giovanni still gives his pokemon nicknames is touching. I wonder if Khan Jr was still a little joey in their mother's pouch when Giovanni met them. This fantasy is starting to sound sad.
Oh
Oh, it was the stress in general and he was thinking about Jojjo. ^^ I should have known you wouldn't leave us hanging.
Kato's feelings are really important on this page, but I'm ashamed to admit that I'm not sure what they are. I jump to think he could be thinking about how he doesn't seem to be the runt of their gang who needs special treatment anymore, but that's just my own (lesser) personal storytelling.
I hope Zager didn't care about his owner lady. No, I have a feeling he did. :(
:<
They could all be dead now for all Robin knows. This is masterfully expressed, these feelings seep straight through. Also her drawings have a lot of personality, Cogito's face is especially recognizable.
Puck's face XD
Mr. Mime last thoughts: "Ow, f*ck"
YAAAASSSSSSSSSSSSS WHO’S MY SPIKEY BOI!?
Malaysian kid here is delighted jolteon carrying the team against sabrina. He is took quick.
At this point in the game it's hard to think something would pose a challenge enough to risk death, but every battle I'm still at the edge of my seat!
And I am sure that it's your amazing storytelling and illustrating! <3 Thank you for bringing this to life~
Yep, that attack will do it!
there are new pages out so i'm gonna read everything from the start again!! just wanted to let you know <3

Ahaha, what a nice finishing line!

Anyway, I just discovered yesterday that this comic is still active. What a pleasant surprise! I started reading this comic a little over five years ago (I was 12 then, 17 now), on a different smackjeeves account (it was ShadowUmbreon or something like that). After a while I stopped reading webcomics, but I never did forget about this story, as it was always one of my favorite nuzlockes. And now I just so happened to see it on the recently updated page! I have to say, I really do adore this comic. The twist you've put on the traditional pokemon story is both dramatic and well-written, but your jokes still hit. The art style is also super unique and really fits the tone!

Well, all I can say is how happy I am to see Puck fully evolved and kicking ass. I wish you luck on all your comic endeavors!
