So... with this, I wanted to establish that Pokemon dying on a League challenge is actually very unusual. It's not like Trainers get into League challenge expecting their Pokemon to die. While accidents can happen, it takes a serious lack of preparation to actually get all Pokemon killed like that. I guess... it's like hiking? People go hiking knowing there are risks but if you're careful and prepared then you'll be mostly okay.
Also, E4 challenges are usually covered by the media, so that last challenger's team death was probably some kind of a regional outrage at some point.

Also, for Indonesians! Kalo ada yang dateng ke Creators Super Fest, yuk mampir ke booth gw dan temen2 di RC96 - Aletheia Circle :D

Hey some more lore, interesting take on that. The Unovian league ought to have waivers for their challengers (like in Ky-nim's run). So is the challenger someone that has been shown in the comic or is it a random stranger #23?

Oh man, this is a really harsh story...

Oh, and that sentence about Ghosts is ab bit confusing, like there's a word missing?

"You know, they say Ghost-types when you are weakened is dangerous, because they can [be] a bit careless about other's life?"

Sorry, that just tripped me up a few times while reading.

@CombatMagi: Random stranger #23, unfortunately. I thought of making that person as a proper character, but I imagine after the incident they'd just disappear from the Training scene.

@ZHODY the delfinator: Thanks for pointing that out! Fixed now :D

nice update *points at tiny audino in corner of panel* love seeing my favorit pokemon no matter how small XD also i love stories within stories, like not everything has to be plot relivant but it helps add to the world building.

Yay! You've returned! (Or more accurately, I've returned to a new batch of comics!) I must reiterate what someone else already said: nice worldbuilding here. And nice showing N's reaction to a Nuzlocke wipeout at the E4.

A few errors though:
The speech bubble after the fourth panel: it should read "other regions championships get regular challenges. Some leagues can even get more than one challenger in a month."
