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!

Wonder how that Master Ball will be put to use... And the fact it's in the wrong hands right now, is certainly no silver lining. Agh it could be put into such bad use I'm so worried for Robin. That unlucky duck her.

@Anonymous: You have a good memory. It's not relevant to the plot or anything, but it's a funny-looking old man that I keep inserting here and there (do try to spot him!).

@Momartik_PSITIME: I had to go back and compare and yes, you're right - at least regarding the face (more defined chin and thinner neck in these last pages). And no, I did not mean to do this. This scene and the last one were drawn about 2 years apart and, well, I really didn't think much about it ... (which also explains the 10X more freckles).

Wasn't that butler on the SS Anne as well? I think he was holding a picture of a Snorlax - too lazy to go find it again xD

@Qlock: really i thought that was a flashback. i still LOVE LOVE LOVE this comic. Something tells me that Giovanni is taking the words of the Silph guy quite literally.

Really good stuff but....
But it seems you've done the woman thinner than before... Did you deliberately do this ?
