Cheren still hasn't told her, or anyone, really, about losing that many Pokemon.

This episode is longer than expected! There was supposed to be something Bianca-related here, but this episode is pretty long already (three parts!). Bianca will have to wait for 2-3 episodes or so. I’m not ignoring her, I swear ;w;

Deleted scene:
Cheren's Emboar felt even worse, because technically he's the one who delivered the killing blow. Pea consoled him, saying that it wasn't his fault. Then end up chatting behind their Trainers, as they walked together towards the exit. Emboar told Pea that his trainer treated them well, "even though he does have a lot in his mind". Pea concluded that Cheren isn't as bad as he thought.
Also, Pea tried to convince Emboar that he's called 'Percival' now. Emboar only laughed.

Wow, that's an epic face of prof. Juniper. xD

I would say but it's only a Patrat but that'd seem kinda harsh, even though they're worthless.

Yeah right now I'm doing an Emerald nuzlocke.. Brendan doesn't seem to notice the he killed my second Poochyena D': RIP Cally the Second

@Princess_Eevee9: WORTHLESS?! I had a Watchog that was the only reason I beat Skyla in White 1!

When it died to Brycen's Cryogenal...I cried.

Professor Juniper has the most EPIC face in that last panel. XD

@RedJac: Patrats are worthless; they look ugly, they show up EVERYWHERE (like the b&w version for pidgeys and ratatta's) and don't learn good moves....

However, Watchogs learn AWESOME moves, I envied everyone who had the tolerance to raise one.

dat Juniper looks soooo cute.. XD

Hm. I suppose that deleted scene would end up being an extra? xD

Awesome as always. Love Prof. Juniper and Lenora. It did get a bit cheesy with the 'I'm not sure how to react' and all that, but what is a nuzlocke without some drama? =)

Loved the back-story for Alder, through. It seems that E4 don't get challengers at all, but when they do get them, they get 2-3 in a row. xD

whoa.. what's with the charred wall?

What makes this update so lovely....

**Cheren and Pi's resolve~~
**Pi's outwardly compassion for Pea, who seems to be embarrassed haha (and the other Pokemon being jelly).
** Professor Juniper's face.

Great work! ^p ^

I can't think of anything that hasn't already been said by everyone else, so I'll just say great job, I'm glad to see an update. It looks great.

Just finished reading available pages and I love it! Especially that I just have started playing BW2...
Never heard about Nuzlocke challenge, but now I'm eager to try it on first BW...
Once more, hilarious comic and, I always imagined my Snivy to have such personality (btw, his name's Toffu, so he's probably as unhappy with that as Pea xD)

If a pokemon give you the evil stare you know you did soming worng

Reply eworm, October 18th, 2012, 6:10 am

Is it just me or do I remember Pi ALSO killing Cheren's Pokemon? Or maybe it wasn't her...

This comic makes me regret having no drawing skills whatsoever, even though I have countless ideas and Nuzlocke-notes ready. :(

Reply pipipipi, October 18th, 2012, 6:19 am

@eworm: Nooo! Never! XD; Cheren did have some of his Pokemon dead, too, but none on Pi's hands. Pi DID say an insensitive comment about Cheren not trying to have a full team, while he actually did try, but can't.

Actually, I think in a comic, writing and storytelling skills is more important than drawing... I'd rather read a simply-drawn but well-written comic, than a comic with beautiful art but the story is boring. That's just my opinion, though.

@pipipipi: He has a full team after game added to his current team,he added a Gigalith and Haxorus

epic face of epicness XD

Reply Shawn (Guest), October 24th, 2012, 9:20 am

Wait, what? So what's going on here (as far as an in-universe explanation)? In Nuzlocke, doesn't faint = dead? So was Cheren always going for the kill while Pea always held back?

Reply belxebu, October 24th, 2012, 4:04 pm

YEAh, Reshiram!!

Great work like always

But if Cheren lost so much pokemon, how come that he always have the same ones?: His starter, the pansage or his evolution, the purrloin or his evolution and the pidov or his evolutions.

Did he replace them with the same kind of pokemon, o the ones that died are the ones that we never see in the history?

Reply pipipipi, October 24th, 2012, 7:26 pm

@Shawn: Ah. I did want to explain that, but I ended up cutting it from the episode. I think'll answer that in an extra :)
(Maybe it wasn't too obvious, but Alder commented on both of them. Not just Cheren.)

@belxebu: Right, the ones that died are the ones we never see.

I was just wondering if you would ever use the SubSeed strategy (Leech Seed + Substitute) with Pea, minding if Pea still has Leech Seed or if you got Substitute in Twist Mountain in the winter.

Also, love your comic!

Reply pipipipi, October 27th, 2012, 1:59 am

@MarthRose: In game Pi never reached winter x'D
(But I like to think that the whole story takes approximately 1 year. Consider the Unova region is Summer ALL YEAR! /excuse)

Also, thanks!
