Rainbow Cloud January 2003 (?) Pencil, pen, Paint Shop Pro
The newly-created Professor Hazard's first action-packed outing. A big fan of the Nintendo64 game Pokémon Snap at the time, this encounter takes place in the Rainbow Cloud, hiding place of Mew.
The Prof has become an inter-dimensional monster researcher at this point, leading into the creation of the OMNIDEX, which would later become the Fiktionary. At this point, his team consists of a yellow Yoshi, a Squirtle (held in the Yoshi's mouth which, in a call back to Super Mario World, gives Yoshi wings as a blue Koopa Troopa would), a Metroid, and Carbunkle (from the Final Fantasy series).
It was a simpler time, and I do miss my hodge-podge team of monsters. But time goes on.
