Before I could begin playing Moon, I absolutely had to make this comic. Pokemon means way too much to me for me to NOT do it. Even if it meant waiting two months.
Anyhow, this is my love letter (comic) to Pokemon. All of this is a recollection of personal experiences and memories I've gained through Pokemon. Each Pokemon featured in the regional panels have a specific purpose, as they all have stories that I've made about them. One of my favorite aspects of the series is how Pokemon is an intergenerational series where old games are connected by new games; it's like my Pokemon and I are growing up together, and it really takes me to my roots of when I just a little kid. And that’s what I had in mind all throughout drawing~
I've wanted to do a Pokemon comic like this for years. More like five years when Black & White were released in the US and 2011 marked as the tenth anniversary of when I first played Silver. But now I finally made it happen after years of trying and failing. Looking back, I needed to have more confidence with myself and momentum with my art skills in order to tell a story like this.

But thank you! I've already started the game and look forward to playing it! Though, I'm gonna go to sleep and get ready to prepare and celebrate some upcoming birthdays~
Sounds like a plan.
I remember how busy school is...glad I've moved on. Hopefully Pokémon will continue for a while.
