The Pokedex Project

The Pokedex Project

by effsnares
A LeafGreen Nuzlocke comic - updates every other Saturday

Des wants to be a Pokémon Ranger, and instead of accepting a scolarship at the prestigious Hoenn Ranger Academy, they're going to get their qualifications under Professor Oak as a researcher. Only this research involves one year of travelling around the beautiful Kanto to train and raise Pokémon.
The Pokédex Project is a story about how running away isn't always the cowardly thing to do, and how simple choices and relationships have the power to change your whole life - and others'.

Contains some (non-graphic) blood and violence, unintentional and intentional misgendering, very occasional foul language and, at the beginning, some bad artwork (it gets better, I swear!) PLEASE NOTE that Des' pronouns are they/them!!

@jayseesall: Green would never tell, he knows Red is quiet for a reason and respects that like a good friend!

@Dragongirl101: Raichu clearly cannot resist cute Pikachu, as proven in this page ; D

Red and Green are something alright!

"Nobody can resist a pikachu!"
Well what about a Raichu?
Also, Des was proven right in less than 30 seconds. Not only that, does this mean that Red and Green/Blue/Gary are a couple?

@Sail-to-Me: Thank you so much for the feedback! No need to apologize, it makes me feel appreciated and validated when people take the time to leave such a thoughtful comment :3 I'm very glad you like this comic!! It always makes me incredibly happy when people can relate or just generally are happy about queer characters because as a queer author one of my goals for this comic was to include a diverse group of characters without stereotyping or falling into the tragic gay trope, but just celebrating queer characters! If you're interested in other Nuzlocke comics with NB/genderfluid protags, I can warmly recommend Aerorwen's comics The Fall and From Grace, and Mewitti's Alterity!

It warms me greatly to hear you've been inspired by my comic and I wish you all the best<3

i'd like to apologise for the length of this first of all...
I've been reading this comic on and off since you first started uploading it on smackjeeves but I think this is the first time I've commented??
I feel so silly for that! This comic is gorgeous! Your art style is beautiful to look at, the balance between humour and drama is great, and oh god, I love everyone's dynamics so much! Des is a great protag, and I think it's the first time I've seen a nonbinary/genderfluid protag in a nuzlocke run, so it really made me happy!
I have to say Green is my current favourite, though. There are several panels where I've buried my head in my hands and gone oh my god he's so taken by Red!! Being gay myself I love seeing their rivalry/relationship slowly budding in this comic. And their fashion is on point, too.
All in all, I regret tuning out of this comic for a while, because in under an hour you've pulled me right back in again! I'm sorry for the length of this, but I adore it! It makes me want to start up my own pokemon comic again... maybe I will after inktober! You gave me some amazing world building inspiration, so thank you for sharing this comic on here!
