Of All Things - Soul Silver Nuzlocke - Part 42 by Yamikaisu Of All Things - Soul Silver Nuzlocke - Part 42 by Yamikaisu
I feel like the message is kinda beaten over you guys' heads here... but ... that's just the way it turned out ; u ;

Let me know how you guys feel about the color coded text! I did it to make all this dialogue less confusing, but if it's jarring this way let me know and I'll tweak it~
To clarify, I'm going to put the Pokemon speech in a different type of text than human speech. At least when Yami's on the screen, clearly not understanding them. I know that some readers might not get at first that Yami cannot undersand what her Pokemon are saying.
HOPE YOU LIKE WORDS

Also before you ask, no I didn't really get a shiny hoothoot. The baby hoothoot isn't one of my pokemanz

Also enjoy seeing Scribbles from the same fucking angle the entire time holy shit

you know sometimes I wish nuzlockes didn't have to use the cliche of "pokemon battle are just another way of animal abuse" it would be fun to just not have that message hammered down by all nuzlocke I read

Well, that really wasn't what I was going for. Just that Pokemon battles are brutal. A lot of pokemon like the thrill of the fight.

I know that they can be brutal, but its just getting ridiculous the amount of people using that as a plot/tropes to make the comic or story more serious, not that its a bad trope, I just feel its being overused a bit, anyway that's just my opinion

Interesting page. Vulpix has a really different perspective that isn't exactly conventional (or nice...) but it's realistic. Not very tactful to say to a raticate,  but an interesting thought nonetheless. She does have a point, but this is kinda what nuzlockes are about!

So many words... :3

Still, I love how the vulpix knows what battling really means, unlike the whole "every Pokemon can be great at battling with love" crap. Shit's going down and Tatara needs to know she and Petal aren't gonna cut it in the end.

I don't want them to die though, but if they do I want Popcorn to deliver sweet beautiful 10,000 volt vengeance. The panel where Popcorn sees what hapened to Manby and retaliates is my favourite so far.

There's so much going on in this update like--

Aw, look at Yami being a dork over the Champion's autograph. But then-- WHAM-- Backstory reveal?!

Then the Espeon Sister having that dorky crush on Morty, but then-- BAM-- Morty's coolio powers

Then Shiny tiny wittle hoot hoot is born...! But then...WAWAWAWAAAAA depressed Pokemons

Uplifting speech and cute Petal...! And then...SHAZAM-- Depressing, cold hard Pokemon facts. :V

It's good to see Petal happy again.

And I see where Aeya's coming from, but I don't think she's completely right. I want to see Petal prove her wrong.

I am training an adamant bellossom for my mono grass run in x and she literally wrecks with swords dance/petal blizzard (leaf blade in pre gen 6). Don't ever judge a book by its cover, Aeya, thats how you get swept by a weaker enemy. Loving the comic and how much personality these guys have. I love grass types and your artwork for bellossom does it justice :)

This Nuzlocke is so good!  I love how much thought and effort you've put into this~

Okay, actual comment time;
The first half of the comic has some pretty heavy plot elements.  I think I can make a guess on a few, but mostly I'm just excited to see how everything plays out.  You sure know how to keep the reader engaged!

Nice to see Unibrow again, and his shiny new daughter *brick'd*  I wonder how he'll factor into the plot now that he's trying to get in contact with the team.

I really like the interactions between Yami's team here.  You can really see how much everyone's grown and developed since being introduced.  And Petal's breakdown was handled beautifully.  It makes sense for her to still be grieving for Manby, and considering how often she's been told what a token cheerleader teammate she is I'm surprised it's taken her this long to crack.  Aeya's dead wrong about Petal being weak, that's for sure.  Can't wait to see the gym battle.

As for Aeya...  She brings up some very good points, and her argument's clear and hard to counter.  However, it seems like she's judging pokemon based on stats and type match ups without acknowledging how much a good strategy can affect things.  In other words, she's being very narrow minded, and I hope this mentality won't come back to bite her.  I wonder how she'll react to Karen's "win with your favorites" speech (assuming she makes it that far, of course).  She's an interesting character, to be sure.

Speaking of interesting characters, I wonder what Bloom meant with her "human anyway" remark.  It was kind of out of nowhere, but Bloom didn't seem to realize that until Scribbles reacted.  I've liked her personality from the start, but this is the first time I've wondered what's going on in her head.  Like, does she see humans as being above good and bad, or...  Never mind!  I could speculate all day on that one, but I'll spare you the extra text and just say what a great job you do with creating three dimensional characters :)

There's just so much going on on this page, I don't think I've said enough!  Although...  looking up, it seems like I've done a good enough job all ready Sweating a little...

Sorry for the wall 'o text.  If nothing else, I hope you know that you've got a die hard fan in me ^^

 
 Spirit of Karomaw, huh?  Have fun in Lavender Town, Yami~

Color coded text is awesome!  But...will Yami ever get to know some of what her pokemon say?  Oh wait...Vulpix...evolves into Ninetales which is psychic... Aeya as a translator would be interesting.

also i have to say, ive played my fair share of nuzlockes, and i've had "weak" pokemon pull of amazing things, so them dying is sure as hell is not a guarantee.

The color-coded text reminds me a lot of "Kubera." Makes it so much easier to track who's talking too while not necessarily needing to show their faces every time to get the idea of who's talking. I like it a lot.

I was sitting here yelling competitive nonsense at my screen 'cause Aeya was frustrating me :P I was like "Bellossom is not weak! DO YOU EVEN CHLOROPHYLL SOLARBEAM BRO?" "YOU'RE NOT EVEN A DROUGHT VULPIX YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO SAY WHAT POKEMON ARE STRONG AND WHICH ONES AREN'T!" < This is what happens when you mix competitive battling with story driven comics >.>

Aeya can be harsh, but that doesn't mean she isn't right.

As a side note: Yami's face receiving Lance's autograph... Pure happiness

Wow, Yami, great job on that page! I had more fun reading this page than a lot of others you did in the past! I don't know if it's the beauty of the page, how neat and clean it looks or how the dialogue is organized, but it sure is well done!
The emotional conflicts, the character interactions and the secrets/revelation, a blend of tastes that makes that make your comic page so nice to read!
You shouldn't worry about this, you rock! :D

Gotta say, Aeya's got a point.  When you think about it, the natural abilities of a Pokémon would really impact their viewpoint of the world.  If you're a Gyarados you practically fear nothing, but if you're a Watchog, sudden;y the world is a lot scarier...
