Webcomic Profile: It's a hard life


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!

Poor Pluto
Been reading this from the start, and its super intense! Pretty much how I wish the anime was, though maybe not quite as much death. I just wanted it to be more serious.

Personally, I really like Pluto. Maybe its because I go from liking seriously underpowered characters to liking characters that can literally punch through mountains and not take a scratch, because its fun to see what the limits are on them, but I think mostly its because he's got a bumbling personality, but he's really incredibly capable.

I was fairly sympathetic with him from the start, and that might even have increased once the fighting started. There's this guy, who is incredibly powerful and doesn't really look like he knows his own strength, and he's told to go slow down or CAPTURE a group that is supposedly insane terrorists and murderers with no conscious. All he can see of them is danger. They aren't people, to him, they are something that might hurt his friends.

But now, afterwards, he sees that he made a mistake. This isn't organized crime, meant to hurt others. Its just a group of friends trying to get away, that he managed to break apart single-handedly.

I guess I just like to see myself from his eyes, trying to figure out how to feel. Of course I'd feel guilty, as he obviously does. What else though? I didn't know who they were until it was too late, so it wasn't technically my fault. Should they unite against the common enemy, the cruel and rude boy that keeps trying to frame her? But she's gone, and Pluto doesn't know about the boy, or any of the other guys in the background. Should he try and help, to make up for what he unintentionally did? It seems that's what he wants to do. And its easy for me to relate to that, which is why I really like him, I guess. He doesn't want to hurt others. He wants to stop the hurt, the bombs and the deaths that this "terrorist" group started. And so he tries, and finds that he's done wrong.

Plus, I really like how you drew this snorlax, he looks really neat.

I'll be watching for more updates!
