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!!

@Dragongirl101: Des is 23 and identifies as nonbinary, so their pronouns are they/them :3 I've left their specific identity a little bit unclear so readers can decide for themselves/identify with Des a bit more, but in my head they're assigned male at birth and identify as genderfluid. Hope that clears stuff up! Most of this is expanded upon on deviantart and my tumblr but not so much on here.

I will forever be confused by Des' gender. I THINK that she's a girl, and girls can grow facial hair, but there have been hints to Des being in her twenties and she shows no signs of that puberty. Not to mention being topless (or naked period) in the company of two guys (granted the guys are smitten with each other). Moments like these flashes here make me question Des' gender.... or is Des a male who identifies as a female..... if so that would be a really cool element to the story

C'ant wait to see what gonna happen next! :3
@effsnares: The only way they'd look good with that much facial hair is if it was a full-on mane. Like... Lion's mane.
Picture it

@effsnares: I know, but that's something that I didn't saw often in other nuzlocke comics, details like this make this comic even more relatable.
Iiiii knew it!
