Nuzlocke S3

Nuzlocke S3

by Yuriakashu
Nuzlocke S^3 a pokemon hard mode comic where the protagonist, Yule, cannot catch pokemon; he can only be gifted them. With this ruleset, there are roughly seven pokemon available. The usual second rule still applies: if a pokemon faints, it is dead.

[The comic started in 2012 exclusively on dA; I am currently rectifying that and posting a page here every day until we catch up! I will also be typesetting all dialogue, etc. for easier reading.]

A preview of things to come.

Cl ick here for the original page on dA! I almost forgot to typeset Kenya's "z." This page is also a strange one, with the save in the middle of the two pages. Two experiments (flashfoward and middle-save) in one page was probably not the best idea, but I don't regret the experiments themselves.

Mortified-- and suddenly, a different scene.

Cl ick here for the original page on dA! Changed Silver's laugh from "keh heh heh" to "sheh heh heh" because another character of my laughs with "keh" and I am of the One Piece opinion that everyone should have their own unique laugh. That, and the "sheh" sound makes more sense than the "keh" sound.

Another landmark, another pokemon.

Cl ick here for the original page on dA! Not much to say here except I really didn't want to edit that "Ciao." It's so pretty in pencil ...

And, we shatter the fourth wall.

Cl ick here for the original page on dA. There was no way I was going to clean up every single pixel on the right-hand page.

Yule gets to decide whether or not we get answers.

Cl ick here for the original page on dA! Lots of text here. There's no accented "e" in the Nightwatcher BB font, so that was a bit weird; and, I edited Equinox's text a little bit so that he specifies what Yule did. Gotta get rid of that vague-for-nothing dialogue.

The in-game Spearow trade? I completely forgot. The Eevee gift? I remembered and latched onto. It's (almost) time.

Cl ick here for the original page on dA! The "(name)" and "<YOU>" text edits were fun. I also edited a lot of that big Yule panel on the right; there were a lot of shadows on it, and I just. wanted them to go away.

Third badge get.

Cl ick here for the original page on dA-- and, because something happened to yesterday's description (or I just simply forgot to create one in my mass-uploading), cl ick here for yesterday's original page! On the previous update, p. 140 - 141: I just had to add that shading effect in the panel. It was so empty otherwise. On today's update, p. 142 - 143: so many scribble text editsss. But, all of them worth it.

Hello again, Silver. I missed you.

Cl ick here for the original page on dA! I considered changing some of the terminology here but decided against it; they were chosen for a reason, and the reasons stands later on in the comic.

It's been a while since we've saved.

Cl ick here for the original page on dA! Mostly clean-up here and clarifying some stuff against the shading.

Man, I love Kenya. I wanted to show with her series of trainers how many playthroughs seem to end at Whitney (or take a dramatic turn, if it's a nuzlocke).

Cl ick here for the original page on dA! So many text bubbles in this one . . .

Instant gratification! I had honestly forgotten about this gift (I wasn't using a guide yet), so it was a nice surprise.

Cl ick here for the original page on dA! Not much to say here except for type edits (caps-lock "heh-lo" for more emphasis, spelling thing) and that I keep wanting to do more clean up than I have reasonable time and energy to do.

A deal is made.

Cl ick here for the original page on dA! Lots of shading edits; I think it turned out alright.

Good-byes and acknowledgement.

Cl ick here for the original page on dA! By now, dA has fixed its jpeg compression and no longer makes my gallery crunchy-- but, the clean-up and typesetting of pages is still valid.

Sorry.

Cl ick here for the original update on dA--! I ended up covering up the handwritten letters best that I could, altering the sizing and such to match up with the original beneath it, erase what stuck out, and shaded it back with a half-opacity brush.

Some immediate reassurance, since this looks really bad: in 2013 (when this page was originally made), I did not understand the importance of medication, both for mental and physical health. Now, in 2019, I definitely do. There will be a return to this concept later on in S3 where this is better discussed, but basically: meds are important. Take your meds if you got 'em.

Cl ick here for the page originally on dA! Took away the box around Golden's last thoughts here, since thoughts vs. speech is a lot clearer here with the typing.

Azu, azu! This conversation serves many purposes: it outlines Goldenrod's tactics against trainers, what the heroine (Golden) knows and has gone though, and how Yule being an empath changes the way one looks at conversations as a whole. Again, typing is spoken, written are thoughts.

Cl ick here for the original page on dA! Lots of typesetting, even without typing anything on p. 122.

Goldenrod: the city of change. For everyone.

Cl ick here to read the original page on dA! Interesting edit here with the flashback speech bubbles; I ended up erasing all that was there and re-shade it on a different layer. From there, it was the usual typing with a small white border.

Oh, hello.

Cl ick here for the original page on dA! As you probably noticed on the previous page, these two are back to 1000 px width (why, past me). The return of the border works well narratively, but it's not something I expected.

Haaaaa ha ha "Clair" ha ha haaaah ha . . . haaa . . . Oh, Kurt. You're so funny sometimes.

Evolution and a social call.

Cl ick here for the original update on dA! Changed how Kurt got Yule's number; the original way didn't really make much sense (yet).
