Welp, that's it, Crystal Double Nuzlocke is officially done. I made an effort to finish it this month because i don't know how my routine is going to be from now. With that said, i need to explain about the obvious sequel we were planning.
As many of you guessed, i do have an Emerald gameplay with Lads (we didn't know about ORAS at the time). Unfortunately, it's hard to tell when i'm going to be able to draw the series, it may even not happen. In that case, i'll post the gameplay results like i did with Blue on DA.
I'll do my best to make Emerald Double Nuzlocke happen, but in any case i'm rly grateful for everyone who followed this silly comic :), you guys are the best. Thank you.

Ahhhh congrads for completing the Crystal Double Nuzlocke comic!!! I really enjoyed the series, like, a lot.
I do hope you continue onto Emerald, because if you do I'd probably squeal and roll off the highest mountain or something

Good luck with all the other stuff that's going on with you!

Congratz on finshing this nuzlocke run!!
I'm going to miss this series so much. I hope you continue the series. ;-;

Hurrah!!! Out of all Nuzlockes, I really enjoy this. I love how the plot went, awesome characters, interesting settings, the art went to simple to improved amazing. But there are some flaws in it.

I would give a review about by reread it again. Again, I love this comic and it is wonderful. I will look forward for the sequel comic.

Reply miizj, June 27th, 2014, 9:09 am

@RepublicEmpire: I would appreciate a review tbh, i'm collecting all the criticism to list what i need to improve next time (and damn, it's a huge list already, not going to lie /shot)

Reply Bach (Guest), June 27th, 2014, 9:16 am

It was a fun ride, and RepublicEmpire is right, the art really did improve as time went on. I truly enjoyed your comic and it's many cool characters, especially Mom, who I feel is kinda like me.

Reply Gruntamainia (Guest), June 27th, 2014, 9:55 am

Well this has been a hell of a ride and worth rereading, and take your time with the next nuzlocke, you know people here will support and enjoy your drawings! =D

EPIC FINALE!

This has been one heck of a comic and it just kept getting better and better until the end. I especially enjoyed all the PokéSpe… "references", I guess? And having three main characters, neither one of which is more important than the others, is very different from most Nuzlocke comics or just comics in general.

I feel, however, that if you were to make a sequel, it should have a new protagonist(s). Both Crys and Gold are incredibly strong at this point and it would be difficult to convince me that they couldn't stop Team Aqua/Magma with a single attack. And… yeah, I feel ΩRαS would be more appropriate, but if you've already played through Emerald, I guess that'll do.

Reply Nighttyger, June 27th, 2014, 10:57 am

What a ride. Wow. It's actually over.
That was awesome. This is - has been for quite a while - my favorite webcomic. Not just Nuzlocke, but webcomic, period. Thank you for making this amazing work. It brightened my day a lot when it updated, and helped me through a rough patch.
I really hope you do make the Emerald run. As great as this was, being able to take everything you've learned throughout this comic and apply it to a new one from the very beginning would be simply amazing.
Also... Last little suggestion for this comic... "at" instead of "in" Mt. Silver.

Goodbye, Crystal Double Nuzlocke. ^_^

Sadly for us, mii is taking another step (job and s3r1ously r3sp0ns1b1l1t13s hehe) in her life, so am i, studying to work as state employee (And to earn LOTSA OF MONEY $_$ (around U$4.200)).

Whooo~! To Hoenn we go~! =DD
That was one of the greatest Nuzlocke Challenges I've ever followed~! I love Crystal and Gold and I hope we get to see how they fare in Hoenn~ >V<
Good luck with it, and good luck doing your things, Mii and Lads~ c:

Reply AGirlWhoLikesToSayHigh, June 27th, 2014, 3:13 pm

*APPLAUSE* Seriously, this has been one of my favourite comics for who knows how long. The art was simple yet wonderful (expressions and actions galore), and the storyline was orchestrated beautifully. I do hope that your Emerald Nuzlocke will come to fruition, but I don't mind just knowing Crys and Gold's adventures don't end here. To Mii and Lads, thank you for the ride. May all your future endeavors be filled with awesome. <3

Reply Angelsong, June 27th, 2014, 3:20 pm

It's... over? Wow. Just... Wow. Gonna be honest here, this is my favorite nuzlocke, ever, plus the only one that made me wish it was cannon. I really hope you get to do a Emerald double nuzlocke with Gold and Crys, that would be ABSOLutely amazing (sorry, Hoen, Absol, couldn't resist). However, it you don't get to it, that's alright too.

Also, WHY THE HECK IS IT THAT I NEVER SEEM TO COME BACK UNTIL SOMETHING MAJOR HAPPENS?!?! SERIOUSLY, WHEN I FIRST FOUND THIS SEASON 2 HAD JUST BEGUN, THEN I CAME BACK TO SEE THE MEWTWO PLOT, AND NOW I COME BACK AND IT'S OVER! Ahem, rant over. Anyway, thank you guys SO MUCH for this AMAZING comic, and I can't wait to see if you do an Emerald run. Bye!

Next adventure @miizj: Consider waiting on the Hoenn run, at least until Alpha and Omega

Reply Estarflame, June 27th, 2014, 8:15 pm

This series...HAS BEEN AWESOME. Thank you for all the pages and memories we had with the comic! I hope you do make a sequel! There are so many questions and you ending on a huge cliffhanger! OwO

@miizj: considering what's gonna happen this year, what about doing it on the remakes of ruby and sapphire?

Don't worry, we'll happily wait for a brand new story!

THANK YOU First I want to say congratulations on completing this beautiful comic! :) I have been fallowing it for a year and a half and I can say that the Crystal Double Nuzlock has been and will always be one of my favorite nuzlocks ever! The art is really pretty and your update rate has been amazing! I will fallow any comics you plan to make in the future be it another nuzlock or something else entirely!
So just thank you for a wonderful comic!!! :D

Reply platina (Guest), June 28th, 2014, 1:38 am

:) ive never loved a nuzlocke playthrough this much! aah i hope you make a hoenn chapter! (i kinda waht to see norman and gold) and maybe ruby and sapph cameos? or may and brendan ( but you seem to be using a bit of pokespe in your story right?)

Reply Aragorn199, June 28th, 2014, 2:50 am

Everyone will be sad if you can't draw the Emerald double nuzlocke! Especially after you set up plot hooks here x3

Anyways, this was an amazing comic and I'm sad to see it end. Good luck beating up Lads again in Hoenn! >:P

Reply Mishe, June 28th, 2014, 3:22 am

omg I would love for you to have time to make the double emerald nuzlocke comic ;7; this was such a wonderful nuzlocke. Probably my favorite XD It was just so awesome ;u; I'm sad to see it end but at the same time it ended so perfectly!! <3 Ahhh I have tears pricking my eyes ;7; But hopefully youre able to make the hoenn comics <3 or any comic! I just love your work <3 and your Crystal and Gold are my favorite!

Reply Jesra (Guest), June 28th, 2014, 3:20 pm

Hi there! I think your's is one of the most epic nuzlockes I've read (aside with peety's). and I'd like to see you're progress in one strip hehe, you know, how you're art have evolved. I think your profess has been awesome :) really thanks for this comic and congratulations. See ya :D

Reply Glueckskeks, June 28th, 2014, 3:35 pm

I really loved reading this Nuzlocke run. I think I started my own about the same time as yours but I'm far from finishing because I'm horribly lazy. Crys is wonderful, but I liked Gold and his Pokemon a lot too. Crys's interactions with Kotone were great as well.

I haven't read a lot of the Pokespe manga, but I still loved that you put in characters and plot elements from it into your story. I'll try to write a proper review later on, but I'll have to reread the comic first.

I'd be very happy if you end up drawing the sequel, but I can understand if you're busy and can't do it. Also, where can I find the gameplay results for your blue run? I looked on DA but I couldn't find them.

This deserves applause. I've loved your work for so long, and its ending fits very well. Looking forwards to a possible sequel, I hope you do well in life!

Reply Guest, June 29th, 2014, 2:20 pm

This was an absolutely wonderful nuzlocke, and I honestly hope to see another.
With that said, however, I understand that you might not have the time or energy to complete another potentially 300 plus page nuzlocke. But still I can hope you do it.
I support your decision, no matter what you choose. And finally, great job.

Reply TwilightUmbreon, June 29th, 2014, 7:22 pm

I shall hope for the best! Hope you can make the Nuzlocke comic happen! Thanks for the amazing comic!

Reply phantomwolf1583, June 29th, 2014, 8:59 pm

This was the first nuzlocke I've ever read and it was incredible

Reply Lady Darkrina, June 30th, 2014, 3:00 pm

Well hey, I enjoyed every bit of this comic. I really loved how Gold always trolled Crystal and how she got angry at him all the time which is what made it quite hilarious and how him and Eusine would fight over her in parts of the comic xD

Other parts I really enjoyed was when both Gold and Crystal faced off against the gym leaders and how we see Green and Blue married ^^

The best part was when they had that plot twist with Mewtwo disguised as Red and how he totally checked her out.

Though yeah, hope you have fun when you get round to working on the Emerald Double Nuzlocke c:

Reply RepublicEmpire (Guest), July 1st, 2014, 6:08 pm

Review @miizj:

Well, let's start on the amazing story.

Art:
The art at the beginning was more simple as pencil drawing. At the later pages, it gradual improved as the story went one. By the second season came, it was very good drawings and handle good lines in the characters. The characters' expressions are good. I give art a 4.9 out of 5.

Story:
This is a tough say about the comic is the plot. The beginning is somewhat had a connection to Lads before you took over. The big question in the beginning is how did Silver stole Chikorita before Crystal came in the lab if she saw him just peeking the window.

The humor is very random and funny at a right time. The story was a Nuzlocke standards, but unlike unfinished nuzlockes who are in a hiatus. You keep going with the story with a clear goal.

The pacing was very good although there was slow moments. The GS ball was a very good plot device and executed well as it was handles properly. The second season was good as how you keep the drama and the comedy steady.

Also I love how you handle the conflict at a reasonable level. The Mewtwo arc was my best parts of the story where I felt sad when Gold realized Crystal is dead and joy when Cebeli (sorry about the mispell) bring everyone back from the dead from Mewtwo's massacre. I give this story 4.5 out of 5.

Characters:

My favorite characters is Gold and Crystal in this comic which they are same favorite characters from Pokemon Special (or Adventures). I like the interpretations of each character like Crystal is more snarky and Gold is just being random. I like their chemistry as these two together tend seems they have feelings and care for each other while being friends.

The other characters like Blue, Green, Red, Silver, Kotone, and others are well-done just like Gold and Crystal. I like the moms in this comic especially Gold's mom because she's the opposite to the one in Pokemon Special. The human characters are nice with some are boring, generic, or average.

The Pokemon in this comic has their own personality as if they are characters in the story. My favorite Pokemon in this one is Lilo, the badass female Tyhpolosion (my favorite fire starter) and I like Feligater, "Mom" who has this unquie personality with a strange name since he's a guy. The other Pokemon are loveable as you portray them as real characters.

I give this comic of the characters a score of 4.75 out of 5.

Overall:
This is got to be one of the best Nuzlocke stories I ever read. I hope I can see the sequel soon. The total score is 4.85 out of 5 as my best recommendation seal of approve.

Reply BlueSavior (Guest), July 17th, 2014, 12:54 am

Wow. That was a extremely good read, lotta laughs too plus the basic and nailed use of a Checkov's Gun as well.

I enjoyed this comic (and Lad's very short comic as well! :D) to the very end.

I'll be looking forward to that sequel if it ever happens. :)
