Yonkoma Nuzlocke: Fire Red

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.

So Lott is staying with Doug for a while, huh?
Oh boy.
Is that's Brom's dad?

I thought this chapter would never end, but here we are - still without the Rainbow Badge. Good job, Doug.
Wait, who's that in the water?

Chapter X finally ends. The longest one of all, by a large margin.

Forget four-panel jokes, here's four one-panel jokes to wrap up the chapter.

Knowing me, the random narrator is gonna play a big role in the story and get tons of character development.

If you're wondering how this girl can carry a Pidgeot pretty effortlessly, you clearly don't recognize Persona 4's Satonaka Chie, best girl of that game. That random cameo on page #249 was actually a subtle foreshadowing of this tiny role of hers - which is also a random cameo.

Brom is temporarily leaving the party, Vang is not allowed to battle... Let's hope the next Gym battle isn't a massacre.

I wonder whom Sabrina is going to meet in Lavender Town. I wonder who professor Oak's friend is.
Yes, I wonder who those two totally different people might be.

Is this the first time Gary has been shown blushing of all things? SCANDAL AND INTRIGUE.

Actually, my guess for Sabi's hair was gonna be a big long braid a la Rapunzel from Tangled. And it took me a second to realize the red things sticking out of the back were Riza's tailfeathers. XD
Small typo in the fist panel. Should be "spent" instead of "spend".

You probably expected the HGSS Sabrina, but what we're getting is a mix of that, the classic PokéSpe Sabrina and the craziest ponytail of all time. The socks are a subtle reference to Blue (or Green or Leaf or whatever), since Sabi is the closest thing we have to a female protagonist here in YN. Add random gloves for no reason, finish it off with a logo that Daisy told Sabi is an arrow, but is really a combination of G and S (for the ship), and we have an adorable new Gym Leader.

Vang is like a Pocket Rocket.
And no, it doesn't just rhyme, I'm pretty sure that's the actual origin of the actual name. "Rocket" (Roketto) is a corruption of "Pocket" (Poketto) - from "Pocket Monster". Took me about 20 years to realize that.

It feels so good to finally somewhat establish Team Rocket's actual motivation. Indeed, they are political extremists who believe in what's basically a free-for-all anarchy, a world where one's own power decides what they can do. Meanwhile, the League System is designed quite the other way around.

I'm sure this info is in no way a nonsense tale designed to hide the real origins of Mewtwo from the guy's subordinates.
