The Night Grows Pale: A Sun & Moon Dual Nuzlocke

The Night Grows Pale: A Sun & Moon Dual Nuzlocke

by zephyr_iphis
Dual Protagonists, one from Alola and one from Johto, embark on the Island Challenge together.

When long-time internet friends Makani and Azophi finally meet, it feels like life is taking a turn for the better. Along with Makani’s brother Hau and the mysterious runaway Lillie, the two begin on a journey full of Island Trials, personal trials, and ghosts both old and new. On the way they make friends, enemies, and frenemies with a variety of original and previously established characters. Action, humor, drama, shade, and good old-fashioned shenanigans ensue. The Night Grows Pale features a diverse cast, explores queer themes and identity, as well as the traditional nuzlocke themes of responsibility, loss and finding friends in unexpected places.

Warning: This comic is not super dark and edgy or anything, but the protagonists are 17-21, so stuff will come up ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. The comic contains themes of abuse, self-loathing, violence, memes, drug references, sexual references, Nebby never getting in the bag, and colorful language.

Hello again friends! :D

I have loved these last few pages~ It seems that the starters are just as excited about their partners as the trainers!

Also, that Popplio is the happiest, squishiest sea pup and I LOVE IT SO MUCH. <3

Have a great day, you guys! o/

There are so many feelings flying around on this page. Azophi alone is experiencing at least six.

Partners!
I love how happy Hau is right now. What a mush.

Azophi, this isn't a wedding. You can't just bust in and yell "I object!"

Side note: Tree has a cat that does this all the time.

@GrinningWolf24: The Rowlet has chosen!
And you can see the answer now that the next page is up! We hope you enjoy the direction we've taken.
Thanks! We had a nice little break. I hope your holidays were good as well!

@GrinningWolf24: Thanks! I love owls and barn owls are a particular favorite. Tree kinda wanted to stick closer to the original borb (and who can blame her) but I managed to convince her with a few mock-ups of this design. We both wanted something sturdier for Litten and we both have cats so we've got good models on hand. And then Tree LOVES seals and sea lions so Popplio had to be an absolute unit. I think we went fur seal pup for him. We wanted something equally goofy but a little more cumbersome than the original to contrast with the other two.
And thank you for this great question! We'll be posting those answers next week hopefully.

We’re back folks!
Sorry about that unexpectedly long hiatus. Life just be like that sometimes. But our schedules should be a lot more open in the coming months so we will try to jump right back in to our once a week update schedule.
Haha, judging from how the rowlett is hopping around and excited from Makani waving at it, I can make a decent guess as to who is getting the grass type. X)

As for the other two.... I could see it going either way. Hoping for Azophi to be happy and get her litten, but I would also love a storyline where she has to figure out how to work with that super adorably squishy popplio.

Also, I'm a little late, but Merry Christmas, you awesome artists! I hope you are relaxing and enjoying the holidays. :)
I honestly love all three of these cuties for totally different reasons.

I love rowlett because it is honestly quite realistic, and being that I love barn owls, it is super recognizable as one.

I love litten because it is much more filled-in and built up than the anime/game design for it, and so looks tougher/scrappier.

I love popplio because it is a soft, squishy blob that I can hug. <3

I am super stoked to see what comes next! Happy anniversary and keep up the great work guys! ^^

(Also, my question would be, if these three had to pick a starter from a different region, what would they pick as their starter and why?)
Heya friends! o/ It has been forever since I had a chance to sit down and read up on this awesome comic, but just wanted to let you know that I (eventually) always come home to roost, haha.

ALSO OMG THAT SNORLAX IS SUPER BUFF AND ADORABLE AND I WANT ONE.

That is all. Keep up the great work! :D
