Silver Linings: A Black 2 Nuzlocke

Silver Linings: A Black 2 Nuzlocke

by SilverStrangequark
(As of August 11th, 2018, the comic is now finished and fully uploaded. Thank you to all my readers!)

Silver is a 21-year-old Pokémon trainer with plenty of travel experience on his shoulders... except, he has never been to Unova. One day, he decides to take the Nuzlocke challenge in the only region he has never visited... but why does everyone there seem to know him?

Based on my own run of Black 2. The full ruleset can be found at Page 8 of this comic.

@epicface752: I can see why you thought so! But the similarity is actually accidental. Time-wise, this is parallel to the canon adventure. (Sorry for not responding in so long. I actually stopped logging in here after the comic concluded.)
oooo is that Hilbert I spy in the bottom right?
It's hard to read on the words
SKARMORY! BLADED FEATHERS HEH!
@Tepig16: I tried my best to do Hydreigon differently, after the horror that was Ghetsis'. :P
She's rather cute for a Hydreigon. Never thought I'd see a cute looking three headed dragon.

There's the ending. The chapter was symbolically titled Return, as both the return home (for Silver) and the TM of friendship.

I won't make more nuzlockes after this one. There are many reasons for this, and I apologise to any of you who may have been sitting there, waiting for the sequel(s) to happen. Nevertheless, this comic was my biggest and longest undertaking yet, and I learned a lot while making it. I know it has many flaws, but I hope I managed to at least give it a satisfying ending.

For those of you active on Tumblr or DeviantArt, there's definitely going to be more (non-nuzlocke) art there, some of which will of course be Pokémon. I may be done with this comic, but I'm definitely not done drawing.

Thanks for your readership, everyone!

There we go, the chapter's finally over. Sorry for the delay; my friend was supposed to make a video version of this update and the next one, since both follow a song each very closely, but she wound up being too busy and I had to upload the "traditional" way instead.

The attack Cody uses to finish off the Haxorus is Last Resort. This is artistic licence since he actually did so with Tail Slap. Cody outsped the first turn and brought the Haxorus down to around 1/4 with the first Tail Slap round, then Haxorus used Dragon Dance. I was really concerned, but Cody's health was still in the green after the blow, and he nailed Iris' ace right after that. It was epic.

I did the last page in the style of the in-game Hall of Fame. This is how the game ended - but the story's not quite there yet. I'll be uploading the epilogue in a moment!
