There was a time when I thought this could be up by Valentine's Day, but I made bad decisions as usual. In fact, my life is a steady stream of bad decisions. For example, I made the decision about Caitlyn's pajamas just 2 hours ago.
Considering the load of other stuff I've been churning out recently, this actually would have been a pretty normal production time. If it hadn't been for the the like 4 months I couldn't work on it at all. :'D
I don't know what else to tell you. Be nice. I think about this stupid comic everyday, I don't need any "Omg finally, I thought this was dead", thanks.
(ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ *☆゚.*・。゚

Wowwwee if you think this was awkward for the characters, try being the one who draws it. Welcome to shoujo manga hell. I hope there was enough funny shit inbetween to break it up. Please don't leave me.
So why is this happening now? Because endless will-they-or-won't-they games over the whole story are sooooo boring. Who has time for that. I thought it would be way more interesting to study the actual relationship that comes after the fairytale ending. The part where they can be cute without blushing and yell at each other for doing stupid dangerous things. (Someone should make a Nuzlocke where the protagonist has a boyfriend/girlfriend back at home and they call every time they see them doing something stupid on national television.)

Do you see that first panel? This is what I wanted to be able to do when I started this comic almost 3 years ago. Someone travel back in time and show this to me. She would be so proud. And highly furious because still only 2 badges. Bottom line: If you want to improve your EVERYTHING, just start that comic you've been thinking about for years. Don't wait until you're good enough for the comic. It's not going to happen. The only things that can push you to learn you everything you need are a rigorous exercise schedule or ... the comic. Which of these is slightly less suffering? :V

:bulletblack: The trainer in the Pokémon Center is Kris, my player character from X. I promise there will be actual cameos again when there is more than one spot on the page. xD
:bulletblack: Anyone can become a Nurse Joy. Even a bearded, burly man. The only condition is that you must dye your hair pink. It's an ancient professional tradition and clearly not me being weird.
:bulletblack: I built Lachlan's stupid house in Sketchup, which shaved many years off my life but saves me many hours every time it appears. I can just get the right perspective and trace it. This is not a surrender, it's a victory over that piece of shit. ಠ_ಠ If you need complex buildings for your comic and they give you a hard time, maybe you should try it, too.
:bulletblack: Oh right, I wanted to tell you what the fuck I did in the game around this point. In Owsauri City, there's a mailbox, and after the 2nd Gym Battle you get a letter from Dad, telling you to come home. By then, a path to Seashore City (your hometown) has opened on Hayward Docks, so I went that way, expecting an awesome Item from Dad. But there isn't any event, the programmer seems to have forgotten what he wanted to put there. :V After that disappointment, I went south and caught a Jigglypuff on the first route where the tall grass is accessible now that you can use Cut. Also, in the Berry Shop in Gravel Town, there are some new berries available, but I think the Sitrus Berries were too expensive, so I went through the cave again to Merson City and bought some more Berry Juice instead. I have not been lying to you about Berry Juice for half a year. It really existed.
:bulletblack: I just looked through my notes, and today is the 3rd anniversary of 3 Pokémon's deaths. Hahaha I regret everything ;_;


Next time: We escape the shoujo manga for now and commence the long trek of watching everything go to hell.

Honestly the most wholesome page ever. I really like how the comic takes time to breath and just relishes in the little slice of life moments that come along here and there, not to mention the comedy sprinkled in every now and then XD

I love it when comics do that, so I'm here to contribute!! A journey isn't all blood and tears! I'm glad you like the jokes, too. :3c

Sure, cute and all but on to the big questions: Is that Spinda really okay?

Probably! Pretty sure! I mean, it doesn't fall very from those stubby legs. The damage is mostly emotional!

Hmm, I saved some of the older pages with Interlacing. That means it doesn't load the image from top to bottom, but from blocky to clear. So if your phone isn't very strong or your connection isn't perfect, the phone might give up on loading at some point, and it should work when you try again later. That's the only thing I can think of.

I hope both of you will be happy someday!

This page made lol so hard, both at the fallen spinda generating the romantic atmosphere, and the vaporeon's failed flirtations. Also at your sketchup story. but the anniversary of three deaths thing scares the shit out of me ಠ_ಠ
Am curious though if every time there's a dying mon on screen we'll get one of those things because you're 2/2

Beautiful art! I like the Terry/Schiller conversation portraits, and the transition between Eevee and Lapras panels is very stylish. You should be proud of this one!
