[+] The rules
[+] PLEASE READ THIS!
Slight disclamer: I purposely changed up some of the mythos behind the region to suit my storyline (the little changes that exist, that is), so if it doesn't match whatever game canon you had about the current characters, please be civil about how you disagree with the canon. Some of the changes I made DO NOT reflect my actual game headcanons for the characters/setting. Besides that, I hope that you will keep an open mind and enjoy the series. I also do read all the comments despite not replying to all of them on occasion. I am more than willing to clarify things for the sake of comprehension

Notice: I am DONE with the run ingame (since 2011!). So feel free to make any guesses and such. The outcomes of certain events have already been determined and won't change...but I'd love to hear your thoughts! Ingame advice might not be so good right now.

Notice 2: Some people have occasionally found broken links in my stuff. If you do, just PM or post a reply saying which links are broken so I can re-upload/fix/etc. Thank you!!!

Notice 3: PLEASE do not ask for the update schedule of this comic. I am a MD/PhD student IRL so my update rate has dramatically decreased since my Diamond Nuzlocke Days. I do TRY to update monthly but I have had hiatuses for important exams and etc.

Notice 4: This is more towards the Ancient Unova worldbuiling elements I have started to post...at around Issue #042. The Ancient Unova society I have built for this comic is NOT perfect nor is it a commentary on today's society as a whole. It's a fictional world with sociopolitical workings that are assumed to be independent of today's society at hand. There is no relevant social statement I want to make with this. Those posts are not even game canon anyway, so feel free to ignore this aspect of the comic (TBH it's not very plot relevant, just a worldbuilding element). SO PLEASE DO NOT IMPOSE YOUR OWN SOCIOPOLITICAL COMMENTARY/THOUGHTS UPON THIS PIECE OR ASSUME I HAVE ONE TO MAKE, SINCE I MADE THIS FOR FUN, AND MOST OF MY INFORMATION POSTED IS BASED OF ON MY RESEARCH OF THE TOPIC AT HAND. If you need me to link you sources of my research, I will be happy to provide them. But you might need to PM me your email because some of them are papers are only accessible through being in academia.

Notice 5: I get a TON of questions about how I play, plan, draw out my nuzlocke. Because this has been so frequent, I have FAQ pages for you guys to look at. PLEASE LOOK AT THEM BEFORE ASKING ME QUESTIONS ABOUT THE NUZLOCKE COMIC PROCESS!
[+] Finally...the comics
The Story
Please tell me if any of the comic links are broken!

Also, the extra links to certain updates (marked by "[x]") are meant for translations of an ingame
ancient Unova text that are found in Undella Ruins. I do have a guide for it below the comic.

OH MY GOOOOOOSH IT IS HERE.

I can tell from the super-long prologue that you have so much awesomeness planned for this run. I am particularly looking forward to the plot you have planed out ~ to be perfectly honest (please don't tie me up and stone me), I haven't FINISHED a Generation 5 run yet, so I only know bits and pieces of what happens at the end. But this makes me want to go and finish White now - the twists you've added with the plot seem extremely epic.

I don't know why, but the panel with N sitting in his mother's lap while she is in a wheel chair is my favorite in this update. It really pulls at some heartstrings, and for some reasons almost makes me tear up. The detail of the wheel chair is what makes it so special I think ~ she's a good mother even when she is clearly suffering from something.

Anyway, to sum up a long ramble, this run is going to be one of the best things ever.

The end.

YAYYY! IT BEGUN! :D
I was really happy to see the thread. Starting a new comic right after the previous was finished sure didn't take long but that's what I expected from you.
Anyway, I'm really loving how this runs started. The artwork is awesome and I really like it in colour. Also, I like how you managed to capture different atmospheres and feeling in each scene. I especially liked the feeling of a new beginning in the last scene.
I can't wait to see how this run turns out! <3

Hmmm... Everytime I see Ghetsis I expect him to pull off his robe and dance the night away (Space Channel 5 style), I personally blame you're avatar Kynim.

Anywho! I'm quite interested in what to expect.

Very nice. You've hooked me from the prologue. Was that story explained in-game somewhere, or did you come up with that? Either way, it's a very nice plot point and I'm excited to see where you take this run.

I WAS SO LOOKING FOR THIS RUN! :D
The rules seems fair (White/Black was the easiest game for me, rarely anyone fainted, so it's good you are making it a little harder). The prologue with N was really cool (the brothers remind me of your gijanka pic of Zekrom and Reshiram, not a coincidence heh XD)
Anyway, very good start, I'm so interested to what happens next.

Oh and I know it's not a Q&A yet, but you said we can ask questions sooo...will any character from Diamond appear in here? (maybe Cynthia?)

My Nuzlocke Run, warning, contains stupidity and weird faces XD
