the colors get slightly messed up in the preview image, so I picked characters it didn't mess up as much. gradient in the bg got a bit pixellated in flash, but not huge deal
no idea why, but the L in cancel at the bottom is made a lot thicker, it's just fine in flash. least I'm glad the only real problem that happened when submitting it to da.
not everyone is in the preview image due to file size limit, plus some of them I drew around the menu so I couldn't take them away from the menu nice enough
for the most part I kept to people's design liberties, so if a character doesn't have a nose in their comic I don't force one on here. though I did add fingers for sky.
roman numerals don't really stand out enough, but it's no big deal.
sorry I had to shrink it down this small, I worked much bigger.
no, this wasn't a sign up event, I chose these nuzlockes, as all these nuzlockes are very much enjoyed by me, are my favorites, and definitely worth the feature.
If you want to read the descriptions better, I have a stash folder I'll add in the comments here sta.sh/227jcrywgcw1?edit=1 with all the different options selected as still deviations and uploaded in HQ
let's have some reasoning behind each feature and go into why I chose these series. they're not really in any particular order on the menu except for velink at 3 because 3 main protagonists, and cross at X because of the X.
I. Shiruba's Soul Silver Nuzlocke: by ~Shiruba-Wakahisa Start here: fav.me/d463uqq
this is a special nuzlocke to me, it's one the first ones I started, and it has some very well done characterizations for the pokemon with great variety. Things get intense at times, but it always manages to make me smile and it's a nice light hearted run that sticks to the game plot and has fun along the way with references and witty dialogue. this nuzlocke has by far my favorite rendition of eusine as well.
II. The Burning Sky: by ~Neowths nuzlocke Start here: neowth.deviantart.com/art/Emer...
I quite enjoy what's done with the plot in this nuzlocke, and lovely backgrounds. the start really has impact, and the pokemon as a trainer is a well done concept here. best Wingull around, and good interactions between the characters. atmosphere tends to be light hearted and enjoyable, making for a pleasant read.
III. JAL by *Velink start here: velink.deviantart.com/art/Poke...
Lemme just start off that in drawing this I have developed even more mad respect for velink, her main characters have very distinct and impressive iconic designs, plus wonderful color palettes. Three main characters is quite a good concept, and you balance them quite well in the comic. plot elements flow nicely, and the special effects for moves and the like in this comic are superb. Dialogue is consistent with characterizations, and pokemon each are drawn with unique charms to them.
IV. Soul Silver Nuzlocke Challenge: by *Vulkabit Start here: vulkabit.deviantart.com/art/So...
An energetic very fun main character, and good use of design liberties for some of the pokemon. Well done fast pacing to the comic, and I quite enjoy how May is characterized. A good touch with the sister, and the humor is well done too and avoids memes. The comic is in spanish as well as english, which is a nice feature for those not familiar with english. the humor is well done too and avoids memes.
V. Kanto: Once Man Fell: by ~AnthemSmiles Start here: fav.me/d67ckrc
Not too well known, and that's a shame, it's got such a splendid moral gray tone and does some really well done interpretations of the pokemon world. Really enjoy the core concept and though it's a bit shaky art wise at first, give it more of a chance and you'll get sucked into the atmosphere and apocalyptic vibe.
VI. Kit's black 2 nuzlocke: by *kitfox-crimson Start here: fav.me/d41t4g5
I chose to feature his most recent one, but his nuzlockes connect together, so you're better off starting at the first one, the sapphire one. Got to be honest, Kit's nuzlockes have grown to be my favorites personally overall, superb use of references, well done constantly fresh humor, good destruction of environment, a huge variety of characterizations along the way, and great pacing. Never a dull moment.
VII. Odd Ones: by *VolbeatFiro Start here: fav.me/d4w2m7r
because I'm a terrible person and would dare to feature myself alongside others. But seriously, I'm very much into and enjoying how things in my comic are working out, and so glad I didn't drop it. It's a real delight to be able to go full blast with all these zany ideas and references, and I feel I couldn't this in any comic except one as crazy as odd ones. It's going full steam and there's a lot more really cool ideas on the way, as well as big plot elements. stay tuned.
VIII. Peanut's pokemon white nuzlocke: by *Froodals Start here: fav.me/d398ra6
Like kit's nuzlockes, these nuzlockes connect together so I recommend you start at the diamond one. Peanut is a superb main character with believable shortcomings, and you really can feel for her and her lack of battle experience. This nuzlocke has one of the most interesting version of Bianca around, and good use of humor.
IX . First Summer: by =NekoNekoKris Start here: nekonekokris.deviantart.com/ar...
First summer has a lovely light hearted charm and characterizations, plus very well done art. the dialogue feels quite believable and the relationships are subtle. Excellent avoiding of cliches both meme and nuzlocke wise, and the world feels immensely fleshed out. Consistent tone and good atmosphere. No character is "oh it's this stereotype" or a cookie cutter formula, they all feel believable as characters with mixes of emotions and traits.
X. Out.law Soul: by *Loki-Wings Start here: loki-wings.deviantart.com/art/...
Some of these nuzlockes on this list were hard to come up with plot synopsis to sound enticing on the menu since they tend to follow the game plot faithfully, but not Out.law star, a very strong point of this comic is the fresh well thought out plot and additions. Cross is a strong distinct main character, with both flaws and strengths. the art is very well done and the artistic liberties on the pokemon well used. colors are put to good use to set mood, and great to see the trainers involved in on the action as well.
XI. No Questions Asked: by ~CynicalCuccos Start here: cynicalcucco.deviantart.com/ar...
this nuzlocke started recently, but I already extremely enjoy it, the limbo king concept is so fresh, and the humors quite nice as well. lots of mystery around plot elements and well hidden make this an enticing read. plus, an interesting unique characterization for the rival.
XII. Bad Apples: by ~mewstein Start here: mewstein.deviantart.com/art/So...
Far as serious nuzlockes go, Bad Apples is by far my favorite for the consistent dark tones, well thought out world and reactions, plus some truly twisted minds. the art improves and the panels show good variety in angles and poses, you really feel the movement of things. Not for the faint of heart, but a very effective impacting tone that's just so well envisioned into the world and the characters.
XIII. HG nuzlocke : by ~blackwing2s Start here: blackwing2.deviantart.com/art/...
Don't let those stick art at the beginning fool you, the art takes an upgrade. Now this nuzlocke has delightful humor and random moments, plus some great plot elements such as the set up of sky's family. by far the biggest cast of pokemon I've seen in a nuzlocke and they all balance out quite well with fresh jokes and variety. It's got a great pacing and it's already in kanto getting the badges after the first e4 battle, so there's a lot to read and enjoy
hope you give these nuzlockes a look and enjoy the art here guys.
velink sorry I made your guys chibi, I had to or they wouldn't fit. I also needed to reword the summary you gave me a bit due to grammar things.
And this is sorta
I haven't seen some of these before, I gotta check em out!
I do have one question though. How did you make this? Haha, you got me interested in making something like this for a OCT group I'm in so if you could offer any advice or anything at all for a squish brain like me I'd be very grateful.
made the still fighters in illustrator, then brought them over into flash and programmed a menu. you put each fighter on a different frame, then have a button on the bottom take you to their specific frame
though admittidly, they ARE charming, among other things
besides, read the description and you'll see Kits one of my favorites overall and I mention more. I included him in the feature here too so it's clear I'm a fan of his stuff, I don't see why you're bothered that I don't go into extreme details
Am actually reading YOUR nuzlocke right now, it's a very good read too!

First off, I love this whole animated selection setup you made here. It has a simple colour scheme but it works really well, and the layout just looks sophisticated- I know it's based on the Persona set up, but it really works well here too- even small things, like changing the background image to the rotating Pokeball It's just so cool that you can do interactive stuff on Flash like this >W<
Each Nuzlocker has a different pose, and they all suit their individual personalities, I also think you made some good choices for the pokemon displayed- I like that you didn't choose a starter for everybody. The shading and silhoette technique you used just compliments the setup you've made and it really does look like it should be a game. (why isn't this a game? someone make this a game! XDDD) It's also great to read all of the little summaries you've put for each 'locke- they all sound so different to each other, and I think I have found a few new people to watch ;D Also, just a small thing, but I like that you made the first letter of each word in the title red- I don't know why but I just really like that little detail.
I love what you did with Cross' pose- she has her "about to kick ass" aura in this piece, and I'm glad you made Vallan's pose so dynamic looking- you really brought out his canine attributes by making him look like he's pouncing on someone :3 About the description- ahaha <3 I'm so glad you mentioned the political attributes of the Nuzlocke~ I know it's something you're noticing, but not everybody does, especially since I've not looked into the socio-economic factors yet I'm so glad you found it easy to make it sound interesting, that means a lot
AHHH, let me hug you Thanks so much for including my little comic in this project of yours it's so badass- you've got quite a talent for using Flash, I wish I could make stuff like this! <3
okaaaay... for some reason I haven't seen this before. 0.o Mystically deleting notes I want to check out among all those spams. -_- Happens too often to me.
Anyhow! Now I'm here... playing with the clickable feature, reading all those descriptions and then returning to clicking like maniac because it's too much fun.
Disappointed when I found my player of choice but have nothing to click A on. D:
Love the colors and enjoying how mostly red colored trainers make a lovely contrast with the blue background. And that super uber cool spinning Poke-ball.
Great idea and executed great. I hope you're satisfied with how this turned out. ^^
YES! There are days when I don't fill like checking a bunch of stuff from groups and then I just automatically click x button... too fast sometimes. x)
absolutely worth it!
haha, you needn't to customize anything. Did you have anything like that in plan? I just wished for a moment that a game like this really exist. :3
