An interesting bit of trivia: Myths of Unova and Apocalypse Johto were started only a couple of months apart, way back in 2011. This bit of crossover was graciously allowed by ky-nim and was a whole lot of fun to do. Don't hurt me.

Other than that, just a small one here, guys. I haven't had as much time as I would prefer in the past month, plus the previous mega-update, which I had mentally dubbed "Giant-Size Apocalypse Johto (Secret Wars II Continues in this Issue)" very soon into the process, did burn me out a little. So a small update. The next update or two will be Unova-based as well, and I think you'll like the direction I'll take.

Hi Saberinblue! I just wanted to let you know that Apocalypse Johto really inspired me both to write a Nuzlocke with unconventional characters and in the formatting of said nuzlocke. If you want to check it out, you would find the character page here mysticdayze.deviantart.com/jou…
and the firs actual page here mysticdayze.deviantart.com/art…

ANYWAY I hate doing that because it's so phony and gross, but I really do love your work and if you have time to take a glance at what you had a hand in inspiring (though I admit it really isn't good but ehh, at least I can feel like I'm improving) be my guest. End of dumb shamefilled plug. 
I'm really excited to see how Candace's story plays out!

Okay this I love to see. This right here. I agree, you've definitely got unconventional characters there. I'm very interested to see what develops with such an elderly protagonist; it's certainly a concept I've never seen before in a nuzlocke. I'll be eagerly awaiting more!

Hey Saber. I was curious if you have a list of your pokemon's names? The names you picked are so creative and inspiring!

I'm not sure how much of my PC boxes I should disclose right now. I know I stopped cataloguing catches in the comic because I felt like they broke up the action too much and didn't really add anything to the story in exchange. I mean, it's not like anyone cared that the Nidoqueen Candace took to the Elite Four was Ravine the NidoranF from the "Goldenrod training" diary entry that I'd mentioned oh, five hundred pages prior. After a while I started trying to introduce pokemon as party members only, with a blurb for the name and nature if it wouldn't be organic for someone to call it by name at that moment.

Another thing is that pokemon that I knew I wanted to use in my party at some point got a LOT more consideration for their nickname than the ones I planned to never use, and sometimes when I decided to use one from the box I'd give them a new, better nickname. I guess for now I'll list all the pokemon Candace has had in her party in the story so far:

Feraligatr M - RIPTIDE

Noctowl M - WATCHWING (Magic: The Gathering reference)

Gastly M - ALASTOR (Devil May Cry reference)

Beedrill M - BEELZEBUB

Heracross M - HELLACROSS

Umbreon M - FORTINBRAS (Shakespeare reference per Whitney)

Flaaffy F - FLASHPOINT

Kingler F - WAVEBUSTER (Metroid reference)

Exeggcute F - CLUTCH (Star Wars reference)

Forretress M - DEATH STAR (Star Wars reference, was DESPAYRE when still a Pineco, which is a much more obscure Star Wars reference)

Ninetales F - CRUCIBLE

Ursaring M - PACIFISTA (One Piece reference; I really wanted to name him BARTHOLOMEW but that doesn't fit in gen 4)

Jynx F - WHITEQUEEN (X-Men reference, was changed to FROSTBITE in the comic)

Lugia - TRUMP CARD

Nidoqueen F - RAVINE
