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.

@eworm figured i read too much into it. Pft. Too used to passive aggressiveness thats often on the internet I guess. There will always be someone who thinks a perspective is messed up imo, just got to find them. with so many people in the world it pretty much has to be. Im sure that people would find certain perspectives of mine "messed up" too. lol.
@PossumFlavored: Oh crap, this is a Nuzlocke, that's right! ^^ I forget at times as well, no biggie.

As for the hover-comment... Are you perhaps confusing "canon" with "cannon"? All I said is Christianity is now officially part of YN's lore, it exists within the YN world. Didn't mean to make any commentary or anything, as tempting as it could be. I'm a Christian myself - one you just might put under the "messed up" category depending on your perspective.
This was some fun updates to read. thanks for them. I read Draven22's comment and realized I had forgotten this was a Nuzlocke myself, even though its in the title. Your skills are so great it removed my ability to comprehend certain certain words. Impressive.

I also could not figure out what comment you get when you hover over the page means. Best I could figure is its commentary on how people have used churches as means of control and power. Which is 100% true, from the perspective from someone that follows Jesus. The name of God has been used for some messed up stuff. But this is a whole can of worms im not sure you want in your comment section and im willing to remove if you ask.
man if not for the fact the pokemon acutally die in this..i would say this feels like its not even a nuzlocke with how creative you've been with the story and everything..usually in nuzlokes its "do the story i the order you found everything, mons in the order you found them..blah blah blah" and here you are going "meh not as fun" and basically rewrite how the entire team rocket thing went...AND I DONT HATE GARY! HOW DID YOU DO THAT!?
@up: Typos. My immortal enemy. It's now fixed, thanks.
In the last panel, "I don't want you too make too much noise tossing around.", the first "too" should be "to". If that makes sense haha
I'll be honest, I did not see that coming.
And actually, I thought it was flipped around for a while. With Doug always saying "He's not my dad", I thought he was the step-child. Unless he was adopted?
I dunno, guessing everywhere. You keep me on my toes.

Thanks, Bianca, for the foreshadowing all these chapters ago. Indeed, Musharna can do that, don't they. Show people illusions of their dreams - or nightmares? Giovanni may have killed Calluna, but he didn't rid himself of her. Is it wounded pride? Is it conscience? Who knows. Whatever it is, it was a perfect distraction and would've been his end if it wasn't for the meddling Archer and his pesky... archer.

Coming soon to the YN Channel, a new sitcom "The Runners: My Dad Married a Terrorist!". It's wacky fun for all the family.
Seriously though, I love the idea of marriage being motivated by something different than just feelings. Society and media has put in all of our minds the idea that "being in love" is the only viable reason for marriage - but I think a decision to protect, help and support another person for one's entire life even without romantic feelings for them is very much admirable. Of course it's give-and-take like with every (non-abusive) relationship, but still.

In case it isn't obvious enough, Pokémon attacks are less effective on humans than it would appear at first glance. There's a reason Rockets resolved to daggers and actual bombs, instead of Honedge or Electrode. For example, being struck by Thunder the move is painful, sure, but less lethal than being struck by thunder the actual thunder. Of course it's still perfectly possible to kill somebody with a Pokémon's attack (see: Ivan, Blaine's assistant), but just one arrow from a Decidueye should be manageable, don't you worry.

R.I.P. Zeus, everyone's favorite little taser.

Ayyyy, I got a shout out AND Added Alliterative Appeal!
Girafarig is very awesome, I agree.

Anyways, my guess is Copycat.

Giovanni may have killed Calluna (or did he?), but that doesn't mean she didn't have him on the ropes. And yes, what you see there is a Flygon beating a Garchomp. You're welcome.

I know you've been dying to find out more about the Runners' family situation ever since I revealed Doug and Cathy aren't blood-related, instead being step-siblings, so rejoice, here's your first piece of information. An agent of a secret police married a member of a terrorist organization for whatever reason and took her daughter in as his own. Tale as old as time...?

Meanwhile somebody went Alolan on us and evolved from Ground to Ghost? Or did she have a secret Lucky Chant Oddish as well?

Three. Hundred. Pages. I was pretty surprised when I made it to one hundred and couldn't really believe it when I hit two hundred. This new milestone has me absolutely confuzzled and baffundled, but once again I have all of you to thank for reaching this astonishing number. Your readership, votes, comments - both admiration and critique - is what encourages me and keeps me going when life tries to make me give up. Here's to another hundred pages - and though I'm saying that now, my jaw is still gonna drop to the floor when we get there...

The next page is a BIG (#300 when did that happen?!), so you know this is gonna cause absolutely no problems whatsoever.


And yay, we have our first Patron already! Once again, I'm too grateful for words.
Now, I promised all who sponsor YN a thank you under every strip, but do let me know if this format is too intrusive and annoying. I imagine it might wear out its welcome after a short while, so I'm considering doing such an in-page strip for every new Patron, while keeping the repeated thanks in these here Author's Comments... Or maybe there's yet better way to do it?
I'm going to be sick.
I wonder if I'm the only one who sees the 2nd badge as like a teardrop, knowing that we lost someone important for the sake of the badge.
Great Refrence... Wait.
The Nuzlocke Comic in reference is dead, FYI for all you new readers. Great comic, though.
@Meta-Akira: Woah, really? You're awesome, thanks a lot! I'll contact you about the reward in a little while, stay awesome!

And yeah, every name is unique in fiction. I was actually wondering if "Catherine" would actually bring to your minds Cathy, since she's such a minor character that doesn't do much... or does she?
Welp, I guess I was both wrong and right about Cathy, welp.
Lemme be your first Patreon supporter. *finger guns*
AND WE'RE BACK!
Just guessing that Catherine is different from Cathy.
Unless there cannot possibly be two characters with the same name in a fictional work.
Look at that girl, flirting with the Rockets who tried to kill her step-brother, all while her cop step-dad (dressed as a woman) watches. You're reading this comic willingly, let me remind you. What is wrong with you?

Let's address the elephant on the poster - Yonkoma Nuzlocke has a Patreon page now.

The reason I'm doing this is two-fold. Firstly, I have recently started working (about time) and when I tried to donate a tiny sum to one of my favorite artists, I was pretty disappointed to find out they did not have a Patreon or any such easy way to donate. I doubt anyone was dying to throw money at Yonkoma Nuzlocke and praying day and night for me to create an opportunity for them to do so, but hey, there are weirdos out there.

The second reason is the bad news - I'm being regularly swamped with other responsibilities and if I were to earn even the tiniest amount by drawing Yonkoma Nuzlocke, I'd have easier time justifying drawing another strip over doing one of the other things. To put it in the simplest possible terms: if time is money, then money is time and YN needs more of my time.

All of this does NOT mean that I'm asking for financial backing, nor does it mean I think YN deserves any, nor does it mean I actually expect any, nor does it mean YN won't continue without any. The things will remain as they were - the Patreon just means that if at any point you feel like wasting some money, you have one more option to do so. Feel free to check the lame rewards I can offer, but feel equally free to ignore all of this. Doesn't make you any less of an awesome fan.
Lorelei is fast. Maybe too fast... Oops...

This game's more than awesome enough to make crime bosses forget about their plots.

I like to think Giovanni is extremely proud and tries to find things to brag about in literally everything he does.
