So there it is. Mystery 1 is over, now you know the motivation for this journey!

...I'm quite nervous because this makes or breaks everything. What if you think it's stupid? I think it's a bit cheesy, but the logic holds up. I wrote the plot when I was just a smol bean and kept tinkering with it over the years, and I still don't hate, so that's a good sign, right?

When I started this comic, I thought maybe I'd get to this point in two years, like a fool! Now it's been more than six and a half years, and as I finally get here, it reminds me of all the people who wanted to see this but aren't around anymore. I hope they're doing alright.
I'll be here forever! I'd love to make some new connections, honestly. Maybe now that this hell update is done, I can read some new Nuzlockes and comment more again. The mountain of art I have saved to """"comment later"""" is embarrassing. :/

I really loved the theories that some people had about Camy being in Team Rocket! Well, that's not it, but she's caught up in some bad stuff for sure!
Team Rocket is a whole different thing. Mystery 2 is what the hell Team Rocket is doing! And there will also be Mystery 3, but that hasn't started yet. ;D

Uhhh have some more rambling in order from the start of Pg. 32 to the end of Pg. 33:
:bulletblack: The framed photos are the ones in Sara's room on Pg. 1. Just in better. :V
:bulletblack: Psychic people are well established in Pokémon canon, and I felt pretty clever in doing something with them. It shouldn't come totally out of left field. ;D But, uh, don't expect too much. I don't want to open the can of worms about how the existence of these inherently more powerful people shaped the society differently from ours. There must be some kind of laws that prevent the abuse of these powers, though. So yeah, Camy will be in trouble.
:bulletblack: The Linoone belongs to Stella, Sara's mom. She also has two Smeargle. There are a lot of Pokémon in this house.
:bulletblack: Sheral is one of the few Gym Leaders who has an official design.
:bulletblack: The outfit Sara is wearing in the panel with the swings was designed by my friend JustMiri, here: DressUp Yes! I actually start using them after 3000 years. :‘D
:bulletblack: Okay! How! How did I get the idea to make Sweeney, the second Elite Four member, the """villain"""? ...I didn't like him in the game. I thought his dialogue was quite rude. I do not remember what happened between that and finishing up the plot, but that was literally the entire reason. Wow!
:bulletblack: I also don't want to open the can of worms about politics! I'm very interested in politics, but every time I saw a Pokémon comic focus on politics instead of Pokémon, I thought it turned boring as hell! So, just a short thing, in case you want to know what kind of party Sweeney belongs to. It's the kind of party that thinks they're progressive because they support diversity and the gays and innovative technologies and all, but on the topic of economics they're like "Why can't poor people just buy more money?" So all in all, they're not evil, but completely useless. Just where you'd think an incredibly privileged kid who wants to compensate something that's lacking in their life would end up.
:bulletblack: In case you don't remember - Red, Sara's dad, was a Pokémon League Champion. So he has some walking-around-at-the-League privileges.
:bulletblack: I think the conversation with the team speaks for itself. All Pokémon just got like 20% stronger because Pokémon sure love fighting for a cause! 
:bulletblack: Like a responsible person, Sara decided that she shouldn't be secretive about her life if she wants the relationship with Lachlan go to somewhere. He really appreciates this even though he didn't take the story well. It reminds him of how he once almost lost his sister, too.


Well! That was a lot of comic, a lot of information and a lot of emotional oversharing! I hope you liked this update! Please leave a comment if you can, each comment casts a black magic spell that prolongs my life by 13 days!


Next time: The 3rd Gym? In a Nuzlocke?? Is it 2013 or what?

It was touching!  Made me tear up!  
Especially with boyfriend's concern and a hug for his sister.  I kind of want to go hug my little brother and make sure no one hurts him!

I'm glad to bring the feels ;v;
That sure was a parallel that hit home for Lachlan.

Part of me is thinking "he has a job there, if he's cheating, people can call him on it and kick him out."

but then again, if he has a psychic helping him, it's really hard to make charges stick.

The people who would have the power to kick him out aren't feeling suspicious yet. It's only been a few months, he maybe had 8 matches or so, and it's not unusual that someone as young as him has a breakthrough and quickly improves a lot.

Yeah! No problem! It's rather outside the box in terms of 'lockes!

GOOD PLAN SARA

It may only be half a plan, but it's a start.

This page could in theory still hold my claim of Camy being with Team Rocket, because if I remember correctly Sweeny was a member of Team Rocket in the manga. But well... She's not. Gotta come up with something else, then!

And yay for the third Gym! I seriously can't wait to see how you handled the Gym in Moraga (the Grass-Type one), because... Well... I get a feeling, based on my experience, that it can be intense.

Manga? I think you mixed him up with Will from Johto. ^^;
Team Rocket would have been super cool and I probably did consider it, but I couldn't think of any good reason for taking the League challenge that would have worked with that.

I hope the Grass Gym part won't disappoint haha...
PatiLee's avatar
It seems I did... But hey, both are Psychic and easily forgettable.

I like the new reason for the challenge. Also I don't think I like that son of a jynx who keeps sisters to themselves >:T

This story has taken an absolutely fascinating twist and I can't wait to see more! Also, Sara and Lachlan's relationship gives me life <3

Thank you, I'm happy to hear you like the story! Sara and Lachlan's relationship is totally a guilty pleasure of mine, the story probably didn't need romance but it makes me happy asfgijalasflk
