Dis hydreigon tho...

Man, how many of your Pokemon did this damn three headed lizard take down? Four?! SCREW THIS DRAGON!

The end of all things

.... It's the end. Lalia can't out speed Asha. Lalia probably can't take a fireblast, and even if she does survive her attacks won't kill. Zach is too badly hurt to tank a dragon pulse... right now our best hope is that fireblast somehow misses four times in a row.

@Coolskelton933: Zach also can't out-speed Asha.

Praying for Duncan Luck

@Coolskelton933: keep in mind. Fire/Focus Blast have earned the nicknames Fire/Focus Miss for a reason. Plus Surf isn't very effective and the Ai will most likely go for fire blast cause it's super effective. So basically we're hoping that Ghetsis gets the Duncan Luck and misses every shot. It happened with Cynthia, it can happen here.

@AgentSilver518:
Seeing as that's how my Vanilluxe managed to not die to hackdreigon, that is a possibility. Also, while I don't remember the stats offhand, depending on how many EVs she picked up in Speed, she could still potentially outrun it and sleep powder quiver dance her way through what's left

Posted at September 10th, 2017, 11:01 am

Ooh boy. This is going to go one of three ways:
1.) Laila is gonna die, and Zach will take Asha out in a Roaring Rampage of Revenge.
2.) Heroic Sacrifice, Asha goes down, but so does Laila.
3.) This is it, the gloves are off, the hat is turned around, LET'S GET DANGEROUS. And Laila takes out Asha and survives.
Personally, I'm rooting for option number 3. For obvious reasons.
Also, Laila's eyes in that 2nd-to-last panel... well done there. I can just read the... uncaring, broken, determination there. That expression when you accept the probability of your death, but it no longer matters, all that matters anymore is making sure this thing falls for what it did. After all, broken things have sharp edges...

@Guest_3: Or it's a wipe

Posted at September 4th, 2017, 11:11 am

I finished crunching the numbers below, but from my calculations, #3 is actually a pretty real possibility. She WAS at a speed tie before the league with Asha, but she leveled up by the time she had to face Asha, giving her the initiative to either
A: Sleep Powder, then Quiver Dance
B: Set up at Point Blank with Quiver dance, banking on Hydreigon's inability to OHKO her at +1 Sp Def without a crit, then go for Petal Dance
C: Sleep Powder, then Petal Dance to try and kill while it's still snoozing
D: Gun it and go straight for the Petal Dance, which, despite being resisted, is still STAB 120 with a 20% Miracle seed boost, so factoring in that and the resistance, that's an effective BP of 108, and that's more than enough to clean up the Hydreigon if it's in the Red (which is quite possible after that Superpower)

Stone Ocean Vibes anybody?

Is it just me, or is this frighteningly fimilar to Jojo's Bizarre Adventure part 6?

You bet

@general awesome: now I'm just imagining that as the Surf is about to hit Nina and Jojo, the PillarMen theme "Awaken" starts playing.

I really hope that Zack isn't going to be the only one who lives. I mean, he's probably traumatized enough already. And if Laila dies as well? I'm fairly certain Zack's gonna lose the will to live.

Fact that this is based on a playthrough of a game means that it could end in a full wipe. It would certainly not be the most satisfying ending, but sometimes stories don't end how we want them to.

Posted at September 1st, 2017, 8:01 am

It's not over

Laila still has sleep powder and quiver dance. If she gets enough boosts, she can tank at least one fire blast each time, amd at worse, Kynim will just have to PP stall (as long as a crit doesn't happen...). She can't hit it super effectively, but it's doable.

Posted at September 1st, 2017, 3:52 pm

Did anyone realize?

It didn't say Jojo died, so there is a chance that the 3 still alive will live.

Posted at September 1st, 2017, 4:22 pm

I've calculated it

0 SpA Hydreigon Surf vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Darmanitan: 146-172 (75.2 - 88.6%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
There is a chance that Jojo is still alive, since we saw the flames burning and we didn't see her get hit in her other battles.

Posted at September 2nd, 2017, 9:10 am

@Awesomeness: That is a distinct possibility as well. SuperPower doesn't lower SpD either, so it's not that issue. perhaps she knew Jojo would be outsped and killed by the next surf, so she brought Laila in on that Surf, trying to sleep dance it

Unfortunately...

Sorry guys, but remember how Zekrias died two comics before it was actually put onto the comic? This is probably the same thing for Jojo.

Posted at September 5th, 2017, 12:34 am

Next time

What would happen next would are hero win with one or two pokemon left or she going to loss everyone she love. Tune in next time for this suspenseful conclusion of pokemon myth in unova! Hope does two love birds live I like them.

Posted at September 5th, 2017, 12:26 pm

The feelz!

I love seeing how you portray that Hydreigon in this comic. Asha is so menacing and imposing. Come on Laila, she can't have THAT much hp left... right? right?

goo bye Laila, also doesn't she have to fight alder after this? its been a while since i played the game

Posted at September 6th, 2017, 6:30 pm

so I crunched the numbers: Worst case scenario, Laila is stuck in a speed tie with Hydreigon. said worst case scenario is if she gained no levels in the league, which, given her use in clearing through Marshal, is unlikely. As such, she is very likely to outspeed. At 1 Quiver Dance, she can take a single Fire Blast from full health, and if we assume she goes straight for the Petal Dance with no boosts, that will deal at least 28.3%, and if we assume she does get in a dance, either by sleeping it first or through sheer gutsiness, that lower range gets bumped up to 42.2%, so she may very well be able to revenge kill the dragon, given the prior damage it has probably taken. Not to mention that there is a chance Ghetsis will use a full restore that turn, giving Laila a free turn to put it to sleep, and then get in a dance: an admittedly less beneficial situation, but still a winnable one with some luck. She can do this, I can feel it

Posted at September 10th, 2017, 11:22 am

crunched some more numbers: in the fight with Marshall, since she swept him without any other pokemon earning Exp from that fight, she earned 8153 exp, and Lilligant, being in the Medium Fast Exp group, needs 8587 to go from exactly level 53 to level 54, and Laila also gained Exp from both Carracosta and Seismitoad, and I don't even need to do the calculations to say that both of those combined give out way more than 434 exp. Therefore, Laila is guaranteed to be Level 54 now, and since, according to the stats screen Kynim provided, Laila WAS at a speed tie before (this assumes Hydreigon has a neutral nature and all IVS are perfect), after the level up, it is almost impossible for her to NOT outspeed. And so, despite how lopsided this matchup appears on paper, Laila is quite capable of taking on that Hydreigon. Indeed, she may very well be Nina's best hope for defeating that monster

Well... crap. This sequel to your Diamond Nuzlocke has been killer, and the art and story are so great...It's hard to watch it end like this. Hopefully life is going better for you than our dear protagonist :O

@Aragorn199: I know I'm basically spamming at this point, but the math says no, not necessarily.
And by math, I mean even figuring out the Exp gained in the league

Posted at September 30th, 2017, 3:29 pm

NO LAILA CAN'T DIE I WANT BOTH HER AND ZACH TO LIVE IF EITHER OF THEM DIE I CAN'T SEE THE SHIP PROGRESS :(
