Yonkoma Nuzlocke: Fire Red

Yonkoma Nuzlocke: Fire Red

by eworm
Gary Oak is fed up with his wimpy friend Doug constantly clinging to him. With the help of his grandpa, professor Oak, he sends the self-esteemless boy into the dangerous world where giant rock-bodied snakes and bugs with poisonous venom will be the least of his problems. Hilarity ensues when Doug gathers a team of Pokémon completely unfitting for a coward like him. Then again, it's never just fun and games and this is the one thing Doug might actually know better than anybody else...

Adaptation of a finished Pokémon Fire Red Nuzlocke run. Consists mostly but not exclusively of four-panel (yonkoma) comedic strips.
Gets better... (=‿=)

When the Internet itself has no pictures of Zapdos with wings in a state other than "spread wide", you know drawing it just standing there with them folded is gonna be tough. Seriously, look at any art of Zapdos and tell me the wings don't look like unbendable plates. Such a weird design, it's always bothered me.

She's 21, what did you expect?

And now I realize Cathy was older then me when I started the comic, but is now way younger. We've been at it for a while, haven't we.
@eworm
Ah, shoot. I must have missed the e-mail. :'D
But thank you so much! I'll get some references for a cameo character and send them to you in the next day or so. uvu

@Meta-Akira: Alright, gonna change it to Meta-Akira then. By the way, did you not receive the Pareon message from me? You've earned yourself a cameo, so contact me about that sometime soon.

And man, your money was of course just a part of the price, but I can't thank you enough, 'cause the Cintiq is fantastic. There're so many things it simplifies and speeds up for me - and I'm still discovering new ones. Yonkoma Nuzlocke should really benefit from it in the long run - since for now I'm getting into the new groove, but I can tell once I get used to it, drawing will be much more fun and faster.
Hhhhhhh, I'm glad my patreon support could help you out man (and alliterations abound). ;v;
Also, you can refer to me by my Smackjeeves username or just my first name if you prefer, but it's up to you.
"I like to shouldn't" is a great motto.

Okay, time's up: from top to bottom the colored buttons represent the hair colors of Bill, Bianca and Doug - the three people who owned/held onto Zaiji.

And the two kanji symbols visible on Vang's hairband are 戦 ("sen" from "Senshi") and 歯 ("ba" from "Kuroba") meaning "war, battle" and "tooth" respectively.

@DarkFlame6742: Oh, I almost never update with less then tree strips at once, so it's not actually a big thing for me to drop five of them. But I'm glad you like it.

The Gary x Sabrina ship name I believe was decided to be shipshipping (see strip #235) and while it was mostly a joke, feel free to use it. As to when they're coming back... Who knows. Probably soon though, since I can't get enough of them either.
Thank You For Updating!!!
I love how you went on a hiatus and when you come back, you literally update 5 times to make up for it! I love this nuzlocke and how you display these characters like Gary, Sabrina, Doug, etc.

Gary x Sabrina is my new OTP!!!
P.S. What is their ship name? And when are they gonna come back into the nuzlocke again?

Guys.
Let's get serious for a moment here, let's get solemn.
For this is a moment of passing. A new beginning, yet also an end.

The strip you see above is the very last strip of Yonkoma Nuzlocke drawn with the use of the good friend of mine, the Wacom Bamboo Pen CTL-470. This little tablet was the very impulsive purchase that allowed Yonkoma Nuzlocke to begin and has ever since been a trusted ally on this journey we've set on together over four years ago. I bought it with financial limitations in mind, perfectly aware that I was getting perhaps the least impressive of what didn't seem like complete trash. Nonetheless, I can now officially say, as we part ways, that at no point was I dissatisfied with its service. Perhaps the best way I can summarize this little piece of tech is this: It did not surprise me with what it could do, no. But it surprised me with what I could do. And just for that, I felt the need to write a nice goodbye for it.

But yeah, the point is I have literally just now been delivered a brand new Wacom Cintiq 13HD and I am way excited. I have been noticing for quite some time that whenever I doodle my characters on paper, even without trying much, they tend to look better and come from under my hand way faster. So I took the leap and decided to try ditching the disconnect of essentially "drawing without looking" and get myself one of those fancy "drawing right on the screen" thingies. One shameful splurge of money later - not without the help of a particular Meta-Akira, baby, that's right! - and a new era for my drawings begins. I don't want to promise any great leap in quality or time efficiency just yet, but I have high hopes.

And don't you guys worry about the old Bamboo, it is not broken and works perfectly fine still. It's quite possible my older sister or my younger brother will have some use for it and if not, I can always keep it and sell it for a million bucks after Yonkoma Nuzlocke finally turns into the worldwide phenomenon that it is clearly destined to become eventually. Right? You'd pay that for it, right?

Giovanni's plans didn't account for the most deadly weapon of all... laziness.

And Calluna, the nightmares about whom set this little sub-plot in motion. Ever noticed all the dead female characters in YN (why are there so many?!) keep saving the lives of others, even post-death? What's up with that?

A classic way to fool the parent, make them worry about you.

If I can bring it back to the Smurfs for a moment, they were actually, now that I think about it, my first drawing inspirations. I used to draw lots of Smurfage when I was a little kid (though "draw" is an overstatement in this case) and I remember that was when I first took a deliberate, concrete inspiration from something - specifically about how I draw ears and hands to this day. It's not exactly the same of course, but I think it's recognizable even now - especially when my characters have their arms just hanging down (like Cathy in the second panel here), because then their hands become 100% smurf hands, look it up. I use it quite often because of how comfortable I am with this particular way of drawing them by this point. So yeah, my "art" owes a lot to those blue Fairy-types.
And again, their newest movie is awesome.

She didn't choose it; it chose her. Don't cross her, she owns pillows.

As is often the case in YN, Makomo the Musharna bears the Japanese name of a very obvious Pokémon character. Effort is for important characters, right? She only saved the day.

YN is back after a little bit of a hiatus and we immediately dive into what the comic is all about... which is reference posters.

Also have some Cathy fanservice...? Why are the Runner siblings the ones who offer lame near-nudity scenes in this comic?
@Fujimoto: That was horrible, thanks for the alert. Should be back to normal now.

@Everyone: By the way, work has been super hectic lately, thus the lack of updates, but I remember YN and am working on it. Updates will resume in early August, I swear. Thanks for being patient with me.
Love but
Look at your web comic the layout is messing up.
