Nikky's Ruby Nuzlocke was first created on April 3rd, 2011 by the fabulous and wonderful NikkyDash. After undergoing a hiatus, it was reincarnated from the dead on April 6th, 2012 and has been on-going since then. It stars Nikky Maple, a girl who was left in Johto by her parents, but by flying on the back of Arceus, she rebelled against the will of her parents and set out on her own journey through Hoenn. The first ten strips are horrible, but if you can make it through that, then power to you, yo.
The rules are pretty simple:
- If a Pokemon faints, it be dead, box dat ass
- Catch the first Pokemon per area, no more than that, if it faints then shit I can't help you there
- Catch the dupilcates, everything happens for a reason, even 600 Zigzagoons
- Nickname dem 'mons
AboutEditDigitally drawn in black, white, and red, the comic is full blown comedy that will resort to using almost any sort of joke to catch the reader's attention. Quick, blunt, and snappy, the characters are strange, and Nikky swears in every single strip while fighting the evils of Team Magma, otherwise known as furries/Pokephiles. Though it follows the game's story and has its own plot forming under it's feet, the most defining characteristic of the comic is it's use of Arceus as Nikky's most used mode of trasportation.
