The Next Journey by CJizzlelette The Next Journey by CJizzlelette
Update: Please read the description. I was half-asleep last night when I posted this, but now I'm more awake to write more. Also, I added the tags for each Pokemon and I added a tumblr version and twitter link of the same comic.

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. 

Also, Junichi Masuda's birthday is on January 12th, so what better timing to post this comic. So maybe it was good to post this now~ Well, for anyone who reads this, I hope you enjoy and can reminisce over how nostalgic Pokemon is. Especially with the series' 20th anniversary and the release of Sun & Moon.  And because it’s still the start of 2017, have a happy new year, too! Pokeball Revamp

Someone else who had a Samurott, yay! Anyway, this is really sweet and I hope you enjoy Sun/Moon. As someone who grew up with Pokémon as it was first coming out, I find this really nostalgic.

Yes! ;u; I originally wanted Oshawott as my starter in Gen V, but at the time it was the tenth anniversary of when I first started playing Pokemon Silver. So, I choose a fire-type, like I once did with Cyndaquil and thus got Tepig (also, I was super lucky to get a female Tepig, unintentionally after several resets). However, I ended up using both and I still have them both, as they're some of my favorite Pokemon ever. ;w;

But thank you! I've already started the game and look forward to playing it! :D Though, I'm gonna go to sleep and get ready to prepare and celebrate some upcoming birthdays~ ^^; Sleepy 

I basically riled up every nostalgic feeling I could muster into this comic; from my own personal experiences to those I've noticed through other people. This was supposed to be a 20th anniversary comic that I was gonna upload around Sun/Moon's release, but due to the busyness of school I wasn't able to. However, that didn't stop me from not making it an anniversary comic because it's always something I've been wanting to do and finally did it. ;w;

Cool. The Tepig line is good too, having got one in my ongoing White 2 nuzlocke, and I felt really lucky to get a female Oshawott in my White run...kind of a bit ironic after reading this.

Sounds like a plan.

I remember how busy school is...glad I've moved on. Hopefully Pokémon will continue for a while.
