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.
Gets better... (=‿=)

@up: Wow, that's almost four years, probably the longest any typo has ever eluded me. Thanks for the alert, it is now, finally, fixed.
you made a typo in the first panel with prof. oak, "resposible"

(and i'm having fun rereading this whole thing)
Nice

Also, what is that hairstyle?
The ahoge makes me think of a Chatot.
...I think that fits, yes.

Again, the first big Team Rocket villain our protagonists encountered turns out to be a secret ally, who saw that coming? Ariana ain't a full-fledged good guy though, she's not gonna do or say anything that could risk herself being discovered as a traitor or putting her husband in particular at risk. So she's not gonna, say, suddenly turn in a midst of a Rocket vs Leaders battle - at most she's gonna hold back to a non-suspicious degree.

So yeah, she still would've killed them back then.

Hm. This strip is titled "Hype". I wonder which character it features most prominently.

Daisy has a new look, it's official. I could see it being kinda polarizing, but I think it suits her. For goodness sake, it has an Ahoge Initial! Who else could ever have an Ahoge Initial but Daisy?

Also, if your Ability is Keen Eye or Analytic you might notice how it is clearly Sabrina's first attempt at creating a pretty hairdo. Can you tell? Having no idea what the standards are for "pretty" or "ugly", she made a clever assumption that the owner of a hair salon would qualify as the former. Indeed, she did a more crazy variation on the hairstyle of Mrs. Delia Ketchum herself. Sabi is not about freely expressing herself on another person's head and more about... not failing the task she's been entrusted with. That's adorable.
Daaaaawwwwwww

Dang it, every time I reread this, I start shipping it just a little more.
Gary is the key to defeating Team Rocket!

...If we can get him work, 'cause he's the funnier character than we ever had.

I mean, it does fit her personality.
Daisy certainly is a whirlwind, that's for sure.

I like how that last one is the one hairdo that actually kinda fits her. Guess they really are siblings.

Don't overthink the first panel, by the way, that's just a big afro representing no specific Pokémon character. Aside from perhaps Bouffalant.

If you don't recognize the second panel's do, well, I guess you don't know anything about cool female characters, too bad. It's a beautiful hairstyle for a beautiful lady.

Nothing is working against the impenetrable force-field of randomness! Who's ready for some really messy green hair?

What is SHE doing here?! The multiverse is collapsing!

But in all honesty - and that's coming from someone who actively hated the Pokémon anime with passion - the Sun&Moon season has redeemed the series so much, it is now a perfectly respectable canon to draw characters from. I love it now!
Hey! I wanted to add that I enjoy your nuzlocke comic (and Judgement which is discontinued;;) the most storytelling-wise (and I read MANY nuzlockes) and I can't think of another comic that kept entertaining me through and through like this on my first time reading through it. Also I think storytelling > art. Not that I don't like your art, it is good, it got better and even before it had tons of charm with the sprite-y backgrounds and all.
