NovaLocke

by RioBlitzle
Nova, a young Torchic, decides to fulfill her life-long dream of becoming a League Master when she moves to Hoenn, by on-taking the life-threateningly dangerous League Challenge. Will she make it?

~~~

A Pokemon Omega Ruby Nuzlocke. Not a hard mode, easy mode if anything, especially considering the difficulty level of the game, haha. There are no humans in the comic universe, trainers are personified by the pokemon they own (usually their strongest Pokemon, in some cases such as Professor Birch, I'll randomly pick a pokemon to convey them.) Rated T for language, blood, and (almost definitely) character death. Will update whenever I make a page, unless I batch-make them and make a buffer/queue for a while.

It's cool Nova, he just admires your strength.

Not gonna lie though, I lost it at Brendan's memes.

im starting work tomorrow for like two weeks, then going to ireland, then going back to school so dont expect a huge boom in updates either here or on Team Medley haha

EDIT: i fucked up novas legs in the last panel i know ignore it



ALSO thing i have to say about this comic that may potentially be spoilery but not really: i started this before finishing the actual novalocke gameplay (and im still not on the elite four) and that was a bad idea bc guess what? there's been a lack of many deaths which, yknow, doesn't really help with the drama of reading a nuzlocke comic. SO, i may kill off characters in future that never actually died in-game!! yay, increased character deaths :D but really, it's just to make things a bit more interesting- there isn't much point of reading a nuzlocke comic only to find out that barely anyone at all died

This is like the PMD game that will never happen. Everything is perfectly translated to the PMDverse and its so comedic, I love it haha

@Midnight-fox18: yep, it totally would! they kind of self-release after about a day though if the Pokemon wasn't let out, so it wouldn't be -that- disastrous!

I really like how you’re building up this pokemon world without humans, yet still using the concepts in the game, like pokeballs! It all makes so much sense, and is super interesting :3
Although, it would suck if someone accidentally used their pokeball on themselves while they were all alone in some remote place, because then they couldn’t get out X’D

Pokeballs: otherwise it's be completely impossible for full teams of evolved Pokemon to travel by fly, surf or dive.

Professor Birch is a fuckin wimp and everyone knows it

Update: I also have some guidelines I neglected to include here though they aren't concrete rules and may be broken from time to time.

-EXP Share should be turned off for most of the time.
-Items should be used/bought very sparingly, ESPECIALLY during battles. Pokemon Centres may be used freely, however.

I should note that this isn't going to be the most serious of comics- the plot's susceptible to change, it's a sketch-comic and i'm not putting too much effort into it overall- it's more something to work on when I don't have the time or mental energy to work on Team Medley or anything. Heck, I haven't even finished the in-game nuzlocke yet! So don't expect much- it's just a silly little exercise of a comic.

Also, props to Shadowstalker1128 for the idea of making Professor Birch a ludicolo, I was originally going to go with linoone. Most other characters will be represented by the pokemon they own.

an additional point, though not really a rule, is that if i choose, i don't have to kill a pokemon literally in the comic, they can be "killed off" in other ways- severe injury making them unable to continue battling, or just leaving the team and never returning. most pokemon really will die, but if i feel it suits the story or character better to leave them alive (or if im too much of a wimp to kill them) i will rarely let a character "survive death" (though they can't battle again).
god i love this bean already

im splitting the chapters up by badges since this comic isn't as structured or detailed as, say, Team Medley, so as a result chapter 1 is probably gonna be the longest by a decent margin considering it also covers all the intro stuff with Professor Birch, Brendan, the Pokedex etc
