You have a nice, simple and clean art style. Haven't seen much of the story, so I can't judge anything else yet, but I like how it started. I hope to see more of it!

I really like your art style a lot! It's pretty simple at first glance, but I love all the little details like the knobs on the oven and the frame changes in each panel. I'm definitely going to be following this, and I look forward to seeing more soon.

This is frickin' adorable! What little there is so far is extremely promising.

Good luck on the gameplay, too, if you haven't finished already. Johto games can be a bit obnoxious to nuzlocke.

This is a pretty good start! I think I might have fallen in love with the art - it's so adorable and simplistic without missing out on important details. Following~

Good clean artwork is a huge plus! And some pretty good humor as well.

Here's to waiting for more!

Thanks so much for the nice comments you all! It's really encouraging haha. My playthrough is ongoing as well (haven't finished it yet), so anything's possible yet besides the main ideas I have.

I have to say I'm really surprised to hear my art is "clean" because I mostly get to hear about how messy and sketchy it is. :D Not that I'm complaining, both are really cool to me.

Will be updating tomorrow!

I am eager to see what starter you begin with and how they interact with your protagonist. It all looks very promising and I hope you continue this for quite a while. I really like the art style.

Hope Emilia gets chocolate cake too!

I really, really like the art here. So simple and cute and it evokes that small town feel so easily. Just wow. Already liking Emilia and I wonder which starter she's pick...Go get that cake!

Stalking like Silver.

Can I ask why "Folded"? Or is it gonna get explained in the story and I'm supposed to just shut up and wait?

This is a very promising comic. You said "the beginning might be a little fast", but it actually seems perfectly paced. I've seen a LOT of Nuzlockes where the first or second page has catches already, rushing through the whole beginning parts of the game (actually, Johto runs do it the most, I believe, the whole Mr. Pokémon stuff and all), so it's fresh to see that you're not in a hurry to get into the Pocket Monsters. It actually gives off the vibe that you're comfortable with your own human characters and don't feel the need to quickly grab our attention with battles and captures. And that's the way to go! Have fun and I'm looking forward to seeing more.

My bet is Cyndaquil, but we'll see.

Well, it's clean comparatively. ;v Still, you can still determine what's supposed to be what and that's good!

Also ohbby we're finally seeing the starter, I'm excited.~

Chikorita? For some reason I really, really hope it's Chikorita. It's probably going to be Cyndaquil, since he's the most popular (and for obvious reasons), but a Chikorita would be a lovely surprise.
