a pokemon emerald normal-type monolocke.
or, being a kid on a journey with your magical animal friends.

----

hi there! i've been wanting to make a comic for a long time, until i realized i could just... start making one, instead of just thinking about it really hard. this is based on one of my favorite nuzlocke runs i've done, and i hope y'all enjoy it too! this is my first long-form comic, so this will be mostly for experience and fun, and hopefully? entertainment?

im gunning for a ~monthly update schedule, but with school + The World it might bit on and off.

now has a (work-in-progress) tumblr blog!

rules:
1. if a pokemon faints, into the pc they go.
2. you can only catch one pokemon per route, and only the first non-duplicate normal-type pokemon you encounter.
3. you get three chances to find a non-dupe normal type, then you're done for the route.
4. for special cases:
4a. you can use pokemon that will lose their normal-typing upon evolution (like azurill!) but you still can't use it's evolutions. (so still no marill or azumarill.) if you accidentaly evolve it, ya gotta box it.
4b. normal-type gift pokemon are legal, even if you've already caught a pokemon in that "area"!
4c. normal-type safari pokemon are allowed with one catch per safari zone.
5. nickname your pokemon, of course!

TEAM:

BADGES: 0
KOs: 0
LOCATION: ROUTE 116
TIME LEFT: 12 WEEKS

this list will likely change, and some topics are in the far future, but as a heads up-
- mild/moderate violence/blood/injury, as one might expect
- unhealthy family dynamics
- implied and discussed ableism

Robot lover by day, robot lover by night as well. This Pokemon spits out a comic page about once a month before scuttling back into its room.
This is just too adorable! I love how expressive and fluffy the Zigzagoon is, and it's neat to see a comic with a non-typical starter mon! This art style is very cozy and cute.

This Pokemon is a master of having too many projects at the same time. Also, Pikablu.
This comic looks so soft! It's not often you see a monolocke comic, of all things. As anyone who's been around me long enough knows, I love monotype runs, and this one is no exception! I'm sure I'll be following eagerly.

If you encounter a wild Kadew, best practice is to gently bully her into remembering that she loves to draw. She forgets, sometimes.
Oh I love this already? The style is so delightful, I love the texture of the brush you're using and the color scheme and the lineless backgrounds, it all comes together in such a cozy way. It's only been one page but I'm already endeared to Poko and their trainer, such a good zigzagoon child, digging up potion, bristling at danger. I'll definitely be watching to see where this comic goes, it can only go well.

heya! read the new update at the bottom of this post, or on deviantart here, if that's your thing.
oh i absolutely adore this art style! its really cute and well..simple haha. and i love the texture of the brush! also the floofed up zigzagoon is adorable <3
ah thank you so much! poko's fluff is really fun to draw, so it makes me happy to hear.

This is just too adorable! I love how expressive and fluffy the Zigzagoon is, and it's neat to see a comic with a non-typical starter mon! This art style is very cozy and cute.
thank you very much! i definitely wanted the style to reflect the overall feeling im going for, and im glad it has!!

looking great so far!
I can imagine your team having slaking, exploud, castform, and kecelon!
Good luck on the run! wish you god speed!
thank you!! a part of why i chose to do a normal-type run was because i realized it would encourage me to use a lot of pokemon i never have before, like slaking and castform! i guess we'll see if i was good enough at video games to catch all of them, lol.

Oh, Poko! Like Pompoko!! This is so cute. I love your style a lot, an die I love to see more specialized rulesets in comics. Anyways, looking forward to more! Have fun and Happy Nuzlocking!
ah that's exactly right- i thought it was very cute that zigzagoons are based on raccoon dogs, and i had just watched pompoko for the first time so it was On The Mind. thank you very much!

This comic looks so soft! It's not often you see a monolocke comic, of all things. As anyone who's been around me long enough knows, I love monotype runs, and this one is no exception! I'm sure I'll be following eagerly.
thank you!! i had never really done a monolocke before this run, and it was a really fun way to limit the amount of total pokemon i could use + managing normal type pokemon's weaknesses especially in the gen with a rock and fighting gym to start with lol

thank you so much!! it makes me really happy to hear that the cozy feeling that i was going for came through, and that you're liking them so far.

thanks!! im really excited to share the rest of the story i got planned.

honestly the art is a bit old at this point buuut it's posted! i know i said it a million times in the replies lol, but thank you all again for your comments, i really appreciate it!
we got a new partner, a new route, and a name for a face.
was wuby's name a joke name i put in while playing, not thinking i would make this a comic, and then got very attached to? no way

Every time I read this comic it puts a big smile on my face. I just love how charming and laid back the atmosphere is. Poko is a very helpful fluffy boi, I love him helping his trainer with the Pokeball. Wuby is also a really cute name!

Filled with too many ideas, surrounded by obligations and weighed by the very ideas that swirl around them. Be patient with them.
this is so incredibly cute!! the zigzagoon and the trainer and the trainer having to trade a berry to the taillow for their Important Trainer Stuff... very charming! I can't wait to read more!

charming bird charmed by a charming child in a charming comic. The carefree slice of life sort of trainer journey is incredibly appealing. I wanna live that chill. That final panel is so warm.

It digs deep into the ground to hide from predators. At night it emerges to eat berries.
I like this comic a lot! 😁
Not only because i am currently doing a really similar run.

All 3 current castmembers are just adorable. 🥰

This pokemon is known to make weird comics at random, no one really knows why.
Nice beginning!It somehow gets straight to the point without doing much!

The art style for this comic is really super charming. Everything feels so soft and pleasant to look at I find myself lingering on the panels just to enjoy looking at them. I really like the flow so far too. The main character is really sweet so far, and I especially love our mischievous lil birb friend all ready. I can't wait to see more!

Every time I read this comic it puts a big smile on my face. I just love how charming and laid back the atmosphere is. Poko is a very helpful fluffy boi, I love him helping his trainer with the Pokeball. Wuby is also a really cute name!

thank you so much!! it makes me really happy to hear it has that kind of atmosphere.

Yep, all you need to do to befriend a bird is to bribe them with food! This is still as cute as ever!

generally, feeding wildlife isnt great, but if they're holding something hostage i think its okay
thank you very much!!

You have such a charming art style! What a good little birb, I can't wait to see how he and Poko get into little scrapes.

thank you! i'm excited to show his and poko's dynamic in the future- they are both lads i love very much.

this is so incredibly cute!! the zigzagoon and the trainer and the trainer having to trade a berry to the taillow for their Important Trainer Stuff... very charming! I can't wait to read more!

ah thank you very much! that taillow drives a hard bargin, lol. i'm glad to hear that you're liking it so far!

charming bird charmed by a charming child in a charming comic. The carefree slice of life sort of trainer journey is incredibly appealing. I wanna live that chill. That final panel is so warm.

im glad you were charmed by my charmingly charming comic :) and thank you so much!! i really want to show the fun/summer camp-like/sightseeing/making new friends parts of a pokemon journey, and i hope to do more in the future!

I like this comic a lot! 😁
Not only because i am currently doing a really similar run.

All 3 current castmembers are just adorable. 🥰

oh nice!! honestly doing a normal-type monolocke was a really fun time for me- a lot of pokemon ive never used, and it's always cool to see other people doing it as well! i hope you have fun with it. and thank you!!

Nice beginning!It somehow gets straight to the point without doing much!

thank you! i figured everyone knows the first 30 minutes of hoenn haha, i thought i might skip ahead a bit. really get into the nitty-gritty of kids aimlessly wandering around forests

I really like the flow so far too. The main character is really sweet so far, and I especially love our mischievous lil birb friend all ready. I can't wait to see more!
ah i really really appreciate that! honestly, its really nice hearing that you liked the art that much! im so excited for y'all to get to know our resident taillow better.

author notes:
  • sorry this page is a bit late! im hoping to do a double-monthly update to make up for the delay soon. (especially since i want to our first badge before the first anniversary, haha)
  • second human character! second zigzagoon! first "battle"! third page! wow!!
  • also featuring: a very smug bird, a shy wuby, and wouldn't it be weird if you were playing with a kid and they BIT you? wouldn't that freak you out?
  • i went a bit weird with the paneling in this one but i had fun! i hope it turned out alright.
  • for our new friends hair, i used one of simkrays natural hair brushes, from this set- please check out her work!:
  • www.simkray.london/product-pag…
  • and again, as always, thank you so much for your comments!! it makes me so happy to hear that the Vibes that im trying to go for are coming across.
these are the same as the deviant notes, buuut... i leave y'all this tldr of simple so far

Honestly, that first panel is my favourite of this page. You can just feel the characters standing and letting the moment soak in, feeling the warm breeze. I love how this comic incorporates quiet, meaningful moments like that.
What's cuter than one fluffy Zigzagoon? Two fluffy Zigzagoons! The "Ah." in the last panel invokes a certain emotion that I really relate to, haha.
