It's a hard life

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.

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

@Tesaur: it fits perfect
I can't believe you cited of my favourite movies/albums of all time. This webcomic never ceases to amaze me.

im really gonna miss this but one must do as they see fit as a creator. i am glad u will at least try to wrap it up properly.
That was a pretty scary dream, I can't wait to see what happens next!
@Guest: Yes, some other people have asked about this, so I'll probably put together a sort of 'what happened afterwards' for those who're interested in what happened in-game.

Everything that's gonna happen in this arc is however, perfectly matches what happened in game.
Having a lot of pages drawn in advance is very handy, but coming back to them like 1 or 2 years later really put some perspective on things and suddenly you don't feel all that clever about the writing/joke anymore. x) But oh well. Next part will be up in a week!

And also, I can't say how glad I am to hear how understanding you all are about my decision. Thank you, you're truly amazing readers.
I'm just glad to hear you've decided to finish this arc. I really like this comic and even if its an earlier end than you had originally planned, I'll still look forward to it.
Thank you
I remember a few months ago when I found this comment. It is just amazing. Although I am sad that you have made up your mind about ending this story arc, I respect your decision. This comic is definitely the best I have read, and I hope you write more comics. You are just amazing, and I think you are amazing for continuing this comic for your readers. If you change your mind, I'll cry with joy, but if your heart and soul is with this decision, I will be with it too. Thank you.
Hey, I have faith in whatever you have planned. This comic has taken an unconventional approach to the nuzlocke comic formula from the start, and that's what makes it so awesome. Having it end in an unconventional way seems fitting. I look forward to seeing how it'll go down.
A lot of asian watching this amazing cartoon.
I check this page every weekend.
Thank you so much.
Don't be sorry. your work is awesome, love this pokemon project. :)
I'm sorry, but it's ok
I'm sorry that the comic is going to end, not soon, but is ending. Anyway I have to thank you for sharing a so amazing story. I'll wait for next updates, as I always did, and hope you to give this comic the conclusion you aim for.

If is possible, when all of this will be ended, I'd like to know what you had thought for the remaining part of the story.

Goodbye and Good work! =)

Thank You...
Thank you so much for this great webcomic, and I know it isn't the end just yet, but I wanted to tell you that this has given me a whole new perspective on Pokemon and webcomics so thank you again for creating this emo nerd masterpiece
A wonderful adventure
Hey, don't be sorry. You have done a lot for this comic and honestly Im surprised/happy that you deside to not drag it on, its the best choice you can make for a comic that has been going on for this long and I appreciate that you made it in general. If you do make another comic or story please tell us I believe we all(if not most) would like to read it!
Dude, I enjoyed this much comic for years, and as a guy that appreciate your job, and was kinda sad about your situation in these years, all i can is THANK YOU, you did an amazing story and almost made me cry. "The journey was wonderful."

I will keep looking for all your comics, and like i did with this one, I will share it with everyone i know. Again, thanks, i hope you can go through all your problems, depression sucks and makes you fell shit, but be sure, as says the pink floyd music outside the wall :

All alone, or in twos
The ones who really love you
Walk up and down outside the wall
Some hand in hand
Some gathering together in bands
The bleeding hearts and the artists
Make their stand
And when they've given you their all
Some stagger and fall after all it's not easy
banging your heart against some mad buggers
QLOCK, Thank you for the great comic!

The best Nuzlock i ever read.

You did a great job so far, dont worry, you are awesome ^^

I dont Know from where you are, but i'm from fuckin Brazil, and i'm here, in this small but great place in the internet, reading this masterpiece.

Thank you, THANK YOU SO MUCH, for the experience you give to us all with this Comic ^^
gentleman its been a pleasure sailing with you
@Qlock: Well if you want you could always "dump" what you had. See if anyone decides to carry on with the idea. Regardless, all good things must come to an end, also do you have any plans for the future? Id like to see what you plan to do. IE a twitter or tumblur or some sort.

*I'm currently playing Fire Emblem 4: genealogy of the holy war. A great game would recommend and randos reading this play it.
