My History with Pokemon

My first Pokemon game was the old Red version for Gameboy Color. I was like a small child with a new puppy, we had fun together, but I didn't know how to properly care for it. At some point I got stuck and asked a friend to help beat the game for me. A few months later he returns the game, having left me in front of the Elite Four with a team of all lv100 Pokemon. I've since lost the cartridge. When I was older I got my first love: Ruby. I loved my Ruby version so much, I played it forever, and invested so much of my soul into that game that it was rather unhealthy. I would later buy FireRed (F.Red), but it was only so I could transfer first gen Pokemon into Ruby. One day I went downtown and when I came back, my Pokemon Ruby and the GBA Sp it was in were both gone. I had no idea what happened, where I left it, or if it had fallen out of my bag. I was heartbroken. I withdrew from the Pokemon world for a while after that, feeling like I had lost a part of myself. Pearl and Diamond came out, and while I was in China for the summer I decided I would move on and try to get into Pokemon again with Pearl. Pearl wasn't to replace Ruby, but it was to be a new start. I would be careful with this one, I would not loose it like I did my Ruby game. I learned too late to never buy a game in English when in China, because they are all hacks, and will eventually stop working. Pearl went into a coma right when I entered the snowy regions. One day I went to play and it just wouldn't turn on. I decided then and there that I was done with Pokemon for good.

"It all happens for a reason."

I discovered Nuzlocke comics a year or so before Black and White came out. It really spoke to me, especially the arch words of "everything happens for a reason." Here was a brand new game with all new pokemon and an exciting new way to play. This was my revival, and so until the game came out I refused to look at or read anything about it or the new Pokemon. I bought the game and set out on my Nuzlocke adventure, playing the game completely blind. Nuzlocke might not be for everyone, but it was defiantly for me, and I am grateful to the guy who first came up with this concept, and the Internet for picking it up.

The Website

I took a web design class while I was at college, and instead of making something useful like a portfolio website for the final project, I decided to make a website for this comic. I wrote all the html myself, so it's pretty rough I'll admit, but I like it well enough and it serves it's purpose just fine.
