Yeah, I blame my brother for introducing me to the Nuzlocke Challenge. And I blame my lack of computer skills for the fact that I'm using traditional media to make this comic rather than using digital media like so many of the better-looking Nuzlocke comics. Still, this should hopefully be fun and maybe someone will like this.

All right, time for summary:

Kicked out of her home by her mother, armed with a Pokemon from the absent-minded and forgetful Professor Oak, and striving to beat her jerk of a neighbor that no one likes, Leaf heads out into the world to defeat the Gym Leaders and eventually face the Elite Four. Along the way, the child will combat the organized crime group known as Team Rocket and gather allies in the form of her team of Pokemon.

But the Nuzlocke Challenge means that the stakes are far higher than normal. Defeats will be paid for dearly and losses will occur. Loyal companions will risk death against their opponents. And at least one member of the team is not what they seem.

Will Leaf fulfill her goal and bring her team against their ultimate opponent? Or will she and her Pokemon fall short? What will be her final destiny?

I'm glad that everyone is as excited about the Pikachu in Virdian Forest as I was. I couldn't believe my luck.

This is a fun beginning to a comic. I enjoyed the jokes about the Pokémon's nicknames.
Rules wrote:3. When a Pokémon faints, it is released and is considered deceased.
- The only exception is against the Elite Four.
Having an exception to the death clause for the hardest battles of the game doesn't sound very kosher. You've gotta look death in the eye and face it down fair and square!

Thanks. It partially comes from the fact my brother always thinks my nicknames for my Pokemon are stupid. It has reached a point where it has been decided that I shouldn't even be allowed to name my own children should I ever have any. So I just went with it in the comic.

...And in regards to the exception to the rule, I am considering getting rid of it. That was back when I held doubts I would even get that far in the game. I figured I'd lose by the third gym. In the game, I actually have seven badges and a lot more confidence that I'll be able to to make it.

[AUTOMATED] Hello! I've moved your thread to the Other Adventures forum as it is either not a Pokemon-based game or not in compliance with the core Nuzlocke rules.

Okay, could someone please put my thread back to the "Fan Challenge Runs" where it belongs? This is definitely a Pokemon-based game and, as I told Vivificent, I am taking out the Elite Four exception. Thus, this would follow the core Nuzlocke rules and there would be no reason for this thread to be on "Other Adventures." I would deeply appreciate it.

Thank you.

XD, p.m. Quarky as he will move it back. He probably read the rules before and moved them or something.

Anyway you had a 5% chance of encountering it according to bulbapedia.

Yeah, I talked to Quarky and I got it moved back. So I'm happy about that.

5% chance? I figured it was something like that, but I didn't bother looking up the exact percentage. Still, I knew it was definitely a lucky break for me.

Yeah, Tiffany may be a girl and she may like her pink bow, but she is still a Mankey and they are famous for their tempers.

And Brock isn't so much checking out the eleven year old girl as he's noticing that she has a fire-type starter instead of a water or grass-type. Blame any ambiguity of the situation on Spark's height and the fact that Leaf is wearing a skirt.

For how big and tough he looks, Onix can't take that much, can it? That or it's just that nothing can stand against Tiffany's residual rage.

Note to self: do not question the fashion choices of fighting Pokémon.

Hehehe. Yeah, Onix turned out to be all talk. Especially against Tiffany's Low Kick.

And fighting pokemon are allowed to look however they like. Or else they'll punch/kick you into orbit.

Glad you seem to like it.

Tiffany kicks ass! I like her, she's a boss.

I'm interested to see where you go with anime!Ash and his predicament! Maybe this hints at an over-arching plot for dear Leaf's adventure, hmmm?

Either way, this is cute! Great job!

Yep, Tiffany is my precious, deadly girl on the team. And insulting her bow is a great way to end up being destroyed by her.

In regards to Anime!Ash and his role in the plot, there shall be some hints of how he ended up in the story once Leaf catches her next pokemon.
