Christianity is now Yonkoma Nuzlocke canon. Huh...

Thanks, Bianca, for the foreshadowing all these chapters ago. Indeed, Musharna can do that, don't they. Show people illusions of their dreams - or nightmares? Giovanni may have killed Calluna, but he didn't rid himself of her. Is it wounded pride? Is it conscience? Who knows. Whatever it is, it was a perfect distraction and would've been his end if it wasn't for the meddling Archer and his pesky... archer.

Coming soon to the YN Channel, a new sitcom "The Runners: My Dad Married a Terrorist!". It's wacky fun for all the family.
Seriously though, I love the idea of marriage being motivated by something different than just feelings. Society and media has put in all of our minds the idea that "being in love" is the only viable reason for marriage - but I think a decision to protect, help and support another person for one's entire life even without romantic feelings for them is very much admirable. Of course it's give-and-take like with every (non-abusive) relationship, but still.

In case it isn't obvious enough, Pokémon attacks are less effective on humans than it would appear at first glance. There's a reason Rockets resolved to daggers and actual bombs, instead of Honedge or Electrode. For example, being struck by Thunder the move is painful, sure, but less lethal than being struck by thunder the actual thunder. Of course it's still perfectly possible to kill somebody with a Pokémon's attack (see: Ivan, Blaine's assistant), but just one arrow from a Decidueye should be manageable, don't you worry.

R.I.P. Zeus, everyone's favorite little taser.

I'll be honest, I did not see that coming.
And actually, I thought it was flipped around for a while. With Doug always saying "He's not my dad", I thought he was the step-child. Unless he was adopted?
I dunno, guessing everywhere. You keep me on my toes.

In the last panel, "I don't want you too make too much noise tossing around.", the first "too" should be "to". If that makes sense haha

@up: Typos. My immortal enemy. It's now fixed, thanks.

man if not for the fact the pokemon acutally die in this..i would say this feels like its not even a nuzlocke with how creative you've been with the story and everything..usually in nuzlokes its "do the story i the order you found everything, mons in the order you found them..blah blah blah" and here you are going "meh not as fun" and basically rewrite how the entire team rocket thing went...AND I DONT HATE GARY! HOW DID YOU DO THAT!?

This was some fun updates to read. thanks for them. I read Draven22's comment and realized I had forgotten this was a Nuzlocke myself, even though its in the title. Your skills are so great it removed my ability to comprehend certain certain words. Impressive.

I also could not figure out what comment you get when you hover over the page means. Best I could figure is its commentary on how people have used churches as means of control and power. Which is 100% true, from the perspective from someone that follows Jesus. The name of God has been used for some messed up stuff. But this is a whole can of worms im not sure you want in your comment section and im willing to remove if you ask.

@PossumFlavored: Oh crap, this is a Nuzlocke, that's right! ^^ I forget at times as well, no biggie.

As for the hover-comment... Are you perhaps confusing "canon" with "cannon"? All I said is Christianity is now officially part of YN's lore, it exists within the YN world. Didn't mean to make any commentary or anything, as tempting as it could be. I'm a Christian myself - one you just might put under the "messed up" category depending on your perspective.

@eworm figured i read too much into it. Pft. Too used to passive aggressiveness thats often on the internet I guess. There will always be someone who thinks a perspective is messed up imo, just got to find them. with so many people in the world it pretty much has to be. Im sure that people would find certain perspectives of mine "messed up" too. lol.
