A Bemurkled Sapphire Nuzlocke

Happy windsday, everyone, and I hope that you have enjoyed the running, cycling, and swimming segments of this summer's Hoenn Triathlon!

Sometimes, Nuzlocke comics rush over their captures in a single panel. After all, there's not that much to say about what happened in-game. Other times, captures are made memorable by the conversations between the protagonist and the new Pokémon, as the Pokémon explains why it is willing to accept captivity, or argues why it should be allowed to go free. But as a different challenge, I decided to try to make this capture interesting without using any dialogue. As a bonus, I got to feature Ruffles, whom we haven't gotten to see as much as some of the other Pokémon on Zizzy's team.

I also decided to try to draw some specific plants on this page instead of my usual generic evergreens. The trees on this page are trembling aspens, a rather pretty tree that is common in my part of the world. The grass is, uh, grass.
