Welcome to Filler Breather Time! Everything that happens here is pretty useless, but it's fun! I love pages like this in other comics, so maybe mine is decent, too!

I've been looking forward to the restaurant disaster scene for years, it has ripened well, and I hope it's funny. :V Apparently I liked it so much that drawing the tables wasn't completely excruciating. I got to model the area in SketchUp and trace it, that helped.
But I was also like, huh, the next page is so much more exciting, I want to finally get to that one. But now that I'm there, it pales in comparison to the page after THAT. Like, the next 4 pages will be progressively more exciting! 4 pages still take a long time to draw, but all that cool stuff is actually in reach after so many years and that feels pretty great. There will be big bois. Eyes 


Anyway! Cameos!
I continue to catch up on cameoing everyone who has cameo'd me and is still active. Maybe that will be finished someday and then there will be actual surprise cameos lol

:iconskygal333: - Nova, Rigel and Aries
:iconnaither: - Emerald and Cotton
:iconjustsnooze: - Costeau and Rho
:iconrandom-ftw: - Maya and Carla

For the Gijinkas, I chose the ones that would look the least jarringly different when turned into humans. :'D


And here comes the bullet point rambling:
:bulletblack: The Burger Nidoking could have been pretty much anywhere, I chose Jaeru City because one of the 3 things there is a restaurant. So thematic!
:bulletblack: The Burger Nidoking coupons were received on Pg. 27. Such a long con!
:bulletblack: I think I mentioned this before, but don't worry about the burgers and nuggets, they are made from all artificial meat. :'D No Miltank has been hurt for burgers in many, many years. Most humans who are alive right now have never eaten a Pokémon. Of course there are some people who find that idea exciting right because it's taboo...
:bulletblack: Pokémon eat Pokémon all the time tho. Have a look back at Pg. 24 for more on that. S P L A T
:bulletblack: Fly!! The 3rd Badge allows using Fly outside of battle, one of the most exciting moments in the journey of any Trainer. Happy cry (Tears of joy) In-story, there is no restriction on HMs because how would that even work, and also they should be available for everyone, not just League Challengers. Sara just conveniently only gets around to using them at the point it was possible in-game. :V
:bulletblack: Birb too smol for riding... I guess it would be possible to fly while holding on to his leg, but imagine doing that for more than 5 minutes. The flight harness is modeled after an ultralight paragliding harness. You can use it to fly with even a Pidgey, but only if you like to look absolutely ridiculous.
:bulletblack: Is it okay if I never have Lachlan wear the original outfit again... I feel bad because he was designed by a fellow Pokémon fan artist, but that outfit is so out of fashion and he needs to look cute. :/

Okay wow the text wasn't even that long this time! :dummy:

Every comment you leave here and every reblog on tumblr makes 100 PokéDollars appear in Sara's wallet. Help her, she can never use Burger Nidoking coupons again!


Next time: A little bit of Team Rocket!

They might be nice and polite, but also completely feral!

Love your idea of a dangling Fly harness to get around size issues! And goggles, of course! Gotta be safe!

Thank you!! There must be a moment in every Digimon season where the leader actually puts the goggles to use! xD

Is it a disaster if it's funny, though?

Also, the fly harness is a cool idea. Personally, I always imagined a glider being dragged/guided by the pokemon, but this one looks better, I think.

It's objectively funny, but they can never got to Burger Nidoking again! A tragedy!

Thanks!! I think a glider would look better bc then the size ratio between the human and Pokémon doesn't matter at all, but it would require even more magical defying of physics. Pokémon may do all the magical....everything, but that's where I draw the line svhjklkgsdf

im sure ive said this before and will say it again, I love your backgrounds because they just breathe SO MUCH life into every panel i envy u so much for that holy shet and not to mention every character is so lovable and this page had SUCH GOOD interactions 
OK BUT THE FLY SWING/HARNESS THING?? THATS THE COOLEST SHET IVE EVER SEEN and ive never seen fly depicted like that in any nuzlocke Ive read which is so impressive I love it hgnnnngggg

asdhjkgfdgl thank you so much I'M CRY TOO
Every word about the backgrounds makes them stronger......
*takes notes* More disaster -> more good character interactions. Okay got it! ovob
Most games give Fly a bit later, when your flying Pokémon is already b i g, but this game bullied me into being creative! I'm glad the result is liked. ;v;

Omg the Burger Nidoking scene there should just be a "no Pokemon" sign in there cause that was such a fucking mess idk why Sara thought that was a good idea at all. Very hilarious though, I loved it.

Harness? Great idea. He's a little small to ride and idk if you'll do that if/when Pilot becomes a Pidgeot so this was good leverage for all of that.

The colors in that flying scene though mom holy fuck I'm crying it's such a beautiful color choice and the clouds are so well-done and you put that conversation between Sara and Pilot in there as well and it just matched the mood and the feelings and it felt like they both were letting go of that battle in a sense during that scene. Poetic and effective even with the shortness of the scene.

I forgot how cute I thought Lachlan and Sara are together. My heart is full of love for them and I'm glad I get to see them happy and together, even if it's just for a little bit. :') The clouds and color choice were also well-picking in this scene too. Fantastic attention to detail and comedy and themes in this page. It's not even a filler because Pilot learned something useful and enacted it during the page, so it's just a really well-done breather page. You did great on it!!

Pokémon are allowed as long as they can behave! Sara thought her Pokémon can behave because they have decent personalities, but she didn't consider that they are wild animals just introduced to civilization.

Not to fling all the spoilers around, but the harness is not a solution anyone should be drawing long term sdajgflkfsd

Yes that was absolutely the intention, I totally wasn't just like "They talk about the battle here" and "Oh the sky has some great colors right now, I will make the flight scene like that"! You always have these interpretations that uncover the subconscious and make me feel good about my work ;v;

Very good!! They are here for cuteness and for characters being allowed a few Nice Things in this story.

Thank you so much for the four part comment novel, you really made my week with this! :heart::heart::heart:

the flying harness is such a nice idea and something that makes a lot more sense than imagining a trainer hanging on to a pidgey's leg or riding on its back, even though the size different is still comical

Thanks!! Even with the biggest Pidgeotto in the world it doesn't look very majestic, so I'm glad we won't be needing it for a long time. Eyes

You added Nova & crew!!!  Oh my goodness thank you! ^////^ I'm honored you chose them to cameo!
And the shenanigans are on par for the First Summer gang.  You think a restaurant would be used to pokemon doing crazy things, eh?

Krisantyne Digital Artist
I'm glad you liked the cameo even if they're tiny :'D
Pokémon can wreak havoc in so many different ways that it's impossible to prepare for them all! (They probably do have insurance though. (But the blood splatter went too far.))
