Hm, so I suppose she can conclude that the gods are real after all, huh? Or, at least, that the egg was funky as heck.
I was going to mention that that's partly addressed on this page, but then the page wasn't ready on time, so...you can look forward to that for next time.

Well then, what happens when she hatches the egg?
Don't forget that it's not her egg, it's Gold's, and she didn't take it, just touched it. But that...sure is a question. That may or may not be answered in the future.


This update is not canon.

The next page isn't quite ready yet, but rather than leave y'all with nothing, I decided to post this. This is inspired by a joke from the DBZ abridged Broly movie that I decided I had to draw once I thought of it. And just like the Broly movie, it didn't actually happen in the real storyline. It's just a goof.

This Pokémon has too many ideas for their own good.
Yyyep, run before he finds out the truth. This made me laugh harder than it should have

"Oh, my, then you must be the thief?"

That line is amusing in the games, and hilarious here.

Happy funny day. Neither of the things I made were pranks, but there's two of them, so hopefully you'll give me a pass.

The one I made for DeviantArt, a cursed image

The one I made for ComicFury, a "new page"


I did not get as much pleasure out of making this as you probably assume I did.

This is a combination of the Pokemon Dunsparce (specifically Asmodeus) with the Super Crown power-up from Mario, which enjoyed memetic fame some time ago due to its application to Bowser to create Bowsette. I can only assume you are already familiar with her. If you aren't it probably means you're young, so please don't look it up.

I wanted to make something April Fools day-related for my comic. However, I have a personal thing against insincerity (with only small exceptions made for irony and the like), so I didn't want to do any sort of "the comic is cancelled" or "oh no everyone died" kind of prank page. So I just made a non-canon joke page, which you can find right up there^. But one of the things in that page I drew was Asmodeus wearing Peach's dress. And I had a thought...so I made this cursed image in honor of April's Cursed First.

Anyway. Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.

Yyyep, run before he finds out the truth. This made me laugh harder than it should have
Glad to hear it!
Always know your surroundings before you try to make a quick getaway.

"Oh, my, then you must be the thief?"

That line is amusing in the games, and hilarious here.
No Lyra to vouch for you in Crystal...but she never returned to the scene of the crime, so she can't be the perpetrator! The criminal mastermind!


Now this is the REAL version of this conversation. Apparently both of these kids tunnel-visioned to Azalea town so hard that they didn't check whether or not route 37 was actually passable right now...

It’s pretty inconvenient to get to Azeala town either from either direction, to be fair to the kids. At least this way, there isn’t any backtracking involved

That's true. That's actually the reason Amelia went this way in the first place, though there hasn't been a chance to mention that yet...

EDIT: removed an errant Birdon from the second panel
Well, this page kind of came out longer than I was expecting it to.

Cyndaquil's name is Azula, by the way.

Readers can have little a backstory, as a treat.


The 21st birthday is significant because that's the age at which it becomes legal to drink alcohol in the United States of America. The age is that in-universe for the same reason the dialogue is in English.

Why do moms have to get all up in your business like that? Asking where you are, getting mad when it turns out you’re in an entirely different region...

I like the lineless thing you did with some of the background characters in this page! It looks nice
