Yeah. ; ~ ;

Future sight is the worst, I hate it. D:
And it wasn't like I could swap out-- Charizard was so much faster than anyone else and could overpower any of my pokemon. As soon as future sight hit... it was a guaranteed loss unless he were to miss.

I just thought I had the speed and the HP/Sp. Def to survive it.

I thought it was gonna be Pongo... but you forgot Future sight, and swapped out... to sweet innocent Nadine... Your loss is the only thing worse than those deaths of Vinny, and all those on page nine...

Edit: Oh yeah, and maybe Rick...

Ooh NADINE. :c I hate to say it, but I'd rather she go than PONGO.

I kept misinterpreting your comment as something rude. I'm unsure why. But Future Sight is a secret killer. It's something as well at Hyper Fang and Slash I hate so much.

@Petty - I'm sorry you lost Nadine Petty D: She was a very sweet soul

AAAAA Nadine D':
By the way, I feel sorry at Gary as much as I feel sorry for you losing Nadine and everyone. :( The way you portray him is amazing. He just doesn't understand, and grandpa Oak's not helping...

Edit: Just want to say, I read the whole thing a few days ago. Your comic is amazing, Petty :'D

Sweet Victory
I waited so long across the world for this climatic battle. Every panel was sweetness to my eyes. Vinny, Nadine, - I see you in each of my past pokemons. You shall be dearly missed

As I said on the Auther's notes page, right before the gary battle, I thought so... RIP Nadine.

Rick, then Nadine...you have your victory, but the price is so very, very high.

Still, jeez. Professor Oak isn't making things any better with Gary.

why do I suddenly feel bad for Gary? ;-;

Why you always gotta Gary bring down?

Falgaia (Guest), March 22nd, 2011, 6:42 pm     Reply

Go Home? Really?
Oak has tunnel vision. He really doesn't give his grandson what he needs, what he needs being, of course, a good parent and role model.

Gary is a victim, just like Nadine. Nothing more, nothing less.

That's my outlook on it, anywho. +(

Couldn't you have stalled with Full Restore until Fire Blast ran out of PP?

Kayle (Guest), March 23rd, 2011, 11:18 pm     Reply

It's possible she ran out of Full Restores or would have run out. The other possibility would have been to switch to Pongo (who seemingly was able to take at least one Fire Blast without being terribly fazed - was he at full health?) and go for a Quick Claw KO.

But those are never great situations. I hate when this kind of thing happens - you're stuck in a healing loop where the only winning move is to sacrifice something. >_< I'm so sorry, Nadine was an amazing Pokemon and she served you incredibly well.

Poor Nadine, she was so new! Also, first time posting a comment and wanted to say I love the comic!

geist (Guest), March 25th, 2011, 4:26 pm     Reply

I'd love to see a comic where Gary confronts his Grandpa. It shall reside in my imagination.

That is what Oak says to Gary in the game though. He's a bit of a jerk.

As soon as I saw Alakazam was using Future Sight, I knew it wasn't going to end well. :( RIP Nadine. You were the best Lapras I ever knew.

James (Guest), January 15th, 2012, 3:47 pm     Reply

why didnt you just keep using full restores until charizard ran out of fire blasts or he missed?
it seemed like you had an unlimited supply?

Starcat1, February 15th, 2012, 6:27 pm     Reply

Poor Gary. Locke had lost many, as Gary lost his Raticate. I'm sorry for your loss of Nadine, but, Gary deserves some sympathy that his grandfather favors you to him. His pokemon and grandfather are all he's got. Good luck on HG, Petty! ((No I'm not insulting you. Just incase you were thinking that. I would never want to insult you.))

Out of all the loses, Nadine was the worst ever. She wasn't worth the death. If only you could've taught her sheer cold.

Reached this part, hoping for a finale with only one team death. Saw the small puddle hit Charizard's foot and knew what was coming. Rest in peace Nadine, the Lapras who died trying. May she be remembered.

Well, Nadine never really did anything to be fair. She never had a personality or any memorable characteristics. No big loss.

@SilverKey: Nadine was a great fighter, as all Lapras are. She had a personality, you just didn't see it! Also, it seems that you are the only person commenting about Nadine that doesn't care about her death! It's just...WHY?!
