This page had a pretty nice splitting point right in the middle, which could have meant an update at least 2 months earlier, but there aren't any Pokémon in the first half. I'm never going to do a page without Pokémon in it, I want to keep that one last shred of dignity. :'D
I've given up on the idea that short pages might ever be a thing in general. Apparently I need the feeling of getting a big chunk of the story out every time, because when I think about splitting the next planned parts into more pages, it makes me want to die.


Anyways!
Story recap time!
(So you remember wtf is going on and the whole thing will hopefully feel less cringey. There is way too much angst here.)
After winning her second Badge in Owsauri City far up in the north of Rijon, Sara went back to Merson City to stock up on Berry Juice because that stuff literally saves lives in battle. But that was a thinly-veiled excuse (well, she really needed the Berry Juice, but she could have had it delivered), she actually went there to see Lachlan again, who had sent her a letter. She was afraid that he would get over her if she let him wait for too long.
They are together now, but the bliss doesn't last long because Sara feels bad about spending time on something that makes her happy when she has more important things to do. (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ *☆゚.*・。゚


Hope you enjoyed the plot. <3

I'll put it together for you because this isn't supposed to be a mystery story and I know very well that trying to remember all the hints from years ago when you read 4355 different comics isn't fun.
:bulletblack: Sara has an older sister. | Pg 1 | Pg 5
:bulletblack: She is on this journey because her family is worried about someone. | Pg 1 | Yup, it's definitely about the sister.
:bulletblack: Sara never wanted to become a trainer. | Pg 3
:bulletblack: She is always in a hurry and refuses to take more breaks than necessary. Things must be serious. | Pretty much every page lol
:bulletblack: Talking on the phone to a certain Camy who (also) calls her by a nickname. Yes, that's her sister. So we know she's alive, but Sara's reactions show that she's acting weird. "See you soon." | Pg 20
:bulletblack: Add the stuff on this page: Sara is taking the League Challenge to find her sister, and their parents aren't happy that she has to do this.
:bulletblack: Now the only questions left are why Camy is in danger and where exactly she is. And why the fuck Sara doesn't explain anything of this to her Pokémon. Terry is pretty much at the end of his patience, but he knows her long enough to know that there's no point in asking, and he also puts up with it because being on this journey is his biggest dream come true. :'D


That was the important stuff! But wait, there are more misc notes, as usual. I never shut up.

:bulletblack: Uhhh so that part where Sara is "talking" to her parents, that's an illustration of her imagination. She's imagining what they would say. They don't have a psychic link or something, or whatever you thought this might be if you watch too much anime. :V
:bulletblack: I HOPE THE DARK BACKGROUNDS DON'T LOOK TERRIBLE ON OTHER SCREENS AAHHH
:bulletblack: Featuring the lovely JustMiri's Maya + team from one of my most favourite Nuzlockes on the world because I wanted to show that trainers don't just fight, they sometimes help each other like reasonable people. :'D (Also, I needed to pay her back for the 5 million cameos she's been giving me owo)
:bulletblack: Breaking news: Pokémon aren't humans. They can talk and are intelligent like humans, but there are reasons for the way wild Pokémon live. Sara knows so much about Pokémon in theory, but she has never handled one before that wasn't domesticated. (Some of her father's Pokémon were caught in the wild, but they have adapted to human culture after decades of living in civilization.) So the wild ones are full of suprises for her and everyone is having a bad time ahahaha
:bulletblack: That wasn't the whole reason for why Pilot got upset. You know he doesn't spill his true feelings so easily. I'll make an Extra about the rest. There will be many birds in it because I hate myself.


Next time: Many birds because I hate myself.

A joke :V Sara's Pidgeotto caught a Magikarp, and Maya's Aerodactyl had to one-up him by catching a Gyarados.

yeah. people forget animals are animals. yeah they are domesticated but that dont mean they can be vegetarians. we just breed the most friendly animal with the other most friendly one. animals still need meat to live. they dont live by human standards.

Yes pls don't put your cat on a vegan diet. 
In this story, human food and Pokémon kibble contains (artificially grown) meat, so the Pokémon would get all nutrients they need, but Pilot has more reasons for for wanting to hunt. If he couldn't anymore, it would be like a human suddenly only getting to eat food from a completely different culture.

I see what you mean. I personally always cheer for the predator when watching a nature documentary.

I love the backgrounds. It gives the comic a sense of adventure. The dark backgrounds look fine to me.

I just watched too much anime and don't know how to do an inner monologue in a less edgy way :V

(I was referring to the Butterfree, but I can see how that applies to the mental conversation)

You know, it'd be darkly humorous if they got, oh, I don't know...a Wailord. Though how they would get one is beyond me, since they're the float whale pokemon, and can float...like a blimp.

Sugar sugar sugar sugar

We're gonna need a bigger bird for that! Or the Wailord could just casually float by and decide to take a rest. That would be enough of a problem for everyone.
