I won't continue my Nuzlocke.
You heard me right. And here's the reason: When I started my Nuzlocke, I was at a point in my life, where I had really nothing else to do. I had graduated from high school, looking for a job, but mostly just stayed home being bored. At that time I found the nuzlocke comics and got interested, dug up my old firered and started playing, drawing everything I did as I went. Later on I started coming up with a deeper story for the silly thing and it started to be more epic. I could invest my time in it, since I had no other projects and could just draw, draw and draw...
Until I started school again. And that's when the updates became more seldom. I couldn't be as devoted, but kept telling myself that I can still draw it, I can still do my nuzlocke, it's gonna be great, yes. But no. Now I'm in a University of Applied Sciences, studying 3D for the 3rd year now. I have 3 different projects at the same time and am having trouble managing those. No, I won't have time for the nuzlocke anymore, it's high time I accepted that myself. And I finally have.
WHAT WOULD'VE HAPPENED
I'm just going to tell you what happens. Yes, Shena died, sorry to leave such a stupid cliffhanger, but she did die. Seiga would've taken her to a crowded PokeCenter during a storm, only to find out it was too late. There she meets a male trainer with an Ivysaur, gotten from Oak. Not sure of his name, but essentially it would've been a version of Red, like the "third trainer" in the game. I didn't have any purpose for him yet, he was just a twist of story at that point, but maybe later on he might've had a bigger role or something.
Later on I replaced her with a Gastly, Agony, who I levelled up as a Haunter and who basically slaughtered the Fucshia gym with the Psychic move I taught her. I also replaced Rao with the Growlithe Scooby, who I levelled up to Arcanine. So in the end I had Molly the Primeape, Gin the Nidoking, Vivi the Vaporeon, Allen the Vileplume, Agony the Haunter and Scooby the Arcanine. Quite a killer team, which I no doubt would've taken to the league, but I didn't even manage that far. Not sure if I even beat the Cinnabar gym yet, it's been so long... I would've also had the Alakazam as a reappearing character and a plot for the legendaries, messing with the powers of nature (storms and stuff). Giovanni, doing what he's doing mostly in the original story, but being connected with the legendaries and Mewtwo. Mewtwo just being a minor little battle in the end, where Seiga almost gets killed, but saved by Ginnai the Alakazam, who knows Mewtwo. I also planned to continue the story of Seiga in Soulsilver, having Red be her past self and that some timewimey mojo happenings... I never managed to write anything up from it, but that's all I can say.
Even writing this now makes me want to go back and draw the comic, but I can't. And this is final. As sappy as it sounds, all good things come to an end, but there's always a start of a new era and that goes for this as well. Since I'm starting up my own webcomic. If you liked my Nuzlocke comic, you might enjoy this one, only this time it's an original story by me called Warden of the Wastes. With help from a friend in writing, we're hoping to start updating regularly by the end of this year to this address: en.wardenofthewastes.com/
You should check it out at least, since there's already a little trailer out!
In the end I just want to say thank you. Thank you for being interested in something I made. I only hope you can find similar, if not more joy from my future production.
