PMD: VF - 399-400: On Thunder's Wings by sulfurbunny PMD: VF - 399-400: On Thunder's Wings by sulfurbunny
Celebrating 400 pages with a two page spread!

It's hard to believe it took this long--or indeed, that we even got this far. I've been looking forward to this guy's arrival since the start of Victory Fire.

so, how many people only just realized that VF was actually a Pokemon Colosseum comic all along?

There will be some exposition, so we will find out a bit more about this guy in VF, but the tl;dr is, Wes is the protagonist of Pokemon Colosseum, formerly a member of the Pokemon thieving group Team Snagem, who is (not entirely willingly) drawn into fighting against Cipher, and was instrumental in stopping their first attempt to take over the region. He's from Orre, but other than that we know very little about him in canon.

maybe add the tl;dr bit to the description? i think most people who get into this comic are mystery dungeon players (probably of installments up to time/darkness/sky, so they get the context right away), but not all have Colosseum experience (like me, i was all 'dafuq is this guy')

Whoaaa yeah I somehow thought it must've been the protagonist or that it had to be that girl with him!!!!
Not me >_< I thought it would be Colosseum/XD Gale of Darkness based when you first mentioned the XD001 xD
Ah I love the Colosseum/XD Gale of Darkness and PMD crossover \*o*/

Love the idea that Wez removes his Kyogre-pattern on his jacket for this new  theme to match his Zekrom! :D

How much context of the Pokemon lore are we supposed to know for this series?  I've never played Pokemon B/W nor have I played PMD1, and I'm starting to think that it's hindering my ability to appreciate and understand what's going on.

Well, at heart this is a fanfic, so it does rely on the readers having some prior knowledge (and indeed I think that's the general appeal with these things). I often have to walk a fine line between providing explanations for those who haven't played the game(s) in question, and boring the people who are obsessive Pokemon fans and thus already know it all inside out.

There will be some exposition, so we will find out a bit more about this guy in VF, but the tl;dr is, Wes is the protagonist of Pokemon Colosseum, formerly a member of the Pokemon thieving group Team Snagem, who is (not entirely willingly) drawn into fighting against Cipher, and was instrumental in stopping their first attempt to take over the region. He's from Orre, but other than that we know very little about him in canon.

Okay.  I'll save you the trouble of explaining who Cipher is and look him up myself.  Thanks for the briefing.
