Here take this and feed on it while I go disappear in a hole for another two months.
Well, hopefully not, but exams start next week and one of them is an oral exam and I still have to do most of a cryptical project thing for another thing and I'm kinda freaking out right now. ┬─┬ ︵ /(.□. )


Pretty happy with how this page looks - the quality art should distract you from the unusual disjointedness that was supposed to become some kind of travel montage and then grew into other things?
Credit goes to my boyfriend for helping me fix the cars (yes they looked even worse before) and to Devon Corp. for their brand new Spheal wall clock. You know you want one too. Only 39.95$!

Big version of the photo (taken with a state-of-the-art Strawberry Phone™) in the e-mail can be found here. And yes, Sara still uses the e-mail address she made at age 11 and she isn't very talkative in writing. No, she absolutely has been taking photos all the time. This is definitely not a plot hole that had to be created because of the incompability of the photo shape and the the e-mail panel shape.
Also, we have some new Pokémon (it will take a while until I start getting non-redundant types), a fit of jealousy (please say you did see this coming) and the realization that at least one full-grown Golem lives in Merson Cave. C:


Trivia Section!
:bulletblack: Now you know the exact date. Mind = blown.
:bulletblack: The entirety of this page was less than five minutes of gameplay. All trainers encountered (1) are shown.
:bulletblack: One more tiny spoiler regarding the fate of the new Pokémon. I really thought about using Adriana the Nidoran on many occasions during the game, but despite Nidoqueen's massive movepool she never fit any of the possible roles well enough. So let's just say she's too young for serious battling and move on. :saddummy:
:bulletblack: If you think Hayward City is big, just wait for the next city~. Did I really just say that? Cities are the most horrible thing to draw.
:bulletblack: Actually the Pokémon Lab in Hayward City doesn't have a public museum attached but I don't like breaking and entering into research facilities.
:bulletblack: The obligatory SHOPPING!joke is much deeper than your standard SHOPPING!joke. It shows once more that Nadia denies her bubbly, excitable side which is pretty sad and deep and sad... and it also makes for a good transition. ._.
:bulletblack: Don't let your wild-caught Butterfree try sugar. Ever. Benny may or may not have caused an accident involving an ice cream truck, a fire hydrant and memory gaps in a few people from Confusion.
:bulletblack: Actually I didn't buy Dig and Brick Break just yet, but no unneccessary backtracking in comics ugh.
:bulletblack: The Department Store has evolution stones. Look who didn't buy any.
:bulletblack: The entirety of Western Docks (aka Western Rijon Dockway) was shown on this page. There are the Mega Kick and Mega Punch tutors, a ferry that hasn't arrived for weeks, one trainer and many Rattatas. Yes, real people would only go there by accident.
:bulletblack: 31 Attack IV Eevee with Secret Power (70 BP + STAB) is 31 Attack IV Eeevee with Secret Power (70 BP + STAB).


Next time: Rival battle. And more importantly, Cut Trees are explained. I can see you on the edge of your seats there. No idea what else, I really need to make these pages shorter for reasons.
Annnnd I need to work on some other things first, as usual. More NuzRooke and NOCT, to be specific. I hope you will enjoy the NOCT stuff at least somewhat because it sounds cool in my head.

Heh, so we found the reason why Wartortle has its tail fluff, for sleepy times, of course - w-b let it be known scientists of the world.

In nature, it's very important that someone occupies the ecological niche of "pillow for friends". u_u

How dare your friends have fun without you /SHOT

I used to solve this problem by only having one friend who didn't have any other friends either!

I guess I too was jumping from table to table pretty often-

What even is NOCT, I've seen it a LOT for nuclear-smash and have no idea

It's an Original Character Tournament hosted by Nuzlocke-Challenge - the artist who draws the fight better wins. And if you lose, your Pokémon dies because Nuzlocke. I was a winner in the first NOCT and a host in #2 and #3.

Hazah! Terry's first victory! Is that waterstone calling his name?

Early Water Stone is a temptation that must be resisted!

The Helix LIVES!

Granted, we have to teach it the ways of modernity, but the Helix lives!

Such a divine being will surely learn the modern ways quickly ... soon after it learns to stand upright and not choke on its food. ;v;

Yay go Terry!

He's a good boy. :'D

I think Terry would make a great Leafon, Umbreon or Flareon given his nature. Although sadly Flareon doesn't get any good physical moves until gen 3
Krisantyne's avatar
Krisantyne Digital Artist
In-game, Flareon is a more than viable Pokémon - the wasted Attack stat is sad but doesn't hurt him at all. 95 Special Attack is more than what Pokémon like Blastoise and Raichu have. I've enjoyed using Flareon more than Umbreon in every Gen, that poor thing neither has attack stats nor moves, but still everyone keeps picking on Flareon. In-game is incredibly different from competitive for lots of Pokémon.
ChoasHammer's avatar
I thought Terry was Adamant (lower sp attack raise attack and not Modest (lowers attack, raise sp attack), so if the became a Flareon would that mean his nature would work against him. Therefore I don't you would have made him a Flareon and the really sad hing to is that Flareon's hidden ability is guts. It is really hard to get a good Flareon set, you need to go to gen 3 to get superpower, then gen 6 for flare Blitz :(.
Krisantyne's avatar
Krisantyne Digital Artist
He is Adamant indeed. But in-game, natures don't matter because you can overcome almost any disadvantage by grinding a few more levels, and also I played this 4 years ago when I was still a n00b and didn't have a feeling for how much a hindering nature affects things. So I would totally have done it. But did I? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Good news, Superpower is a tutor move again in ORAS. But still, Flareon will never climb out of trash tier. </3
ChoasHammer's avatar
Flareon is still a very good Pokemon and the main reason it is not better is because of its speed, that is why you need to run the flame charge.

Those backgrounds D: 
(Seriously, I love them. It gives me a good idea of what Rijon is all about even though I've never played it before... kinda makes me want to try it out :3

I think I didn't even cry at the big Hayward Docks one. ouo
(Thank youuuu! <3 That's exactly what I wanted to accomplish, giving a thourough impression of Rijon. Try it try it try it)
