Roman was just looking for clues on the professor, I thought that wasn't a secret. Oh.

A regular writer of fanfics and other works, this pokemon loves puns, bugs, and the outdoors.
This comic has been on my list for uhhhh

forever? and I finally got around to reading it lmao. I basically took a couple hours and just marathoned the whole thing. And I gotta say: love love love it!

The designs, the art, the worldbuilding, all spot on. I'm super invested in this whole shebang and fascinated to see where it goes from here. Also I'd just like to say that we know Cousteau the least of all the team but I'm just so on board with this bad-haircut 20-something who has had it up to here with this League nonsense

spent last night reading this comic and it got me wanting to nuzlocke and actually make something out of the runs again! thanks for that inspo. <3 signed up for the forum and everything lmao. your style is absolutely incredible, along with your worldbuilding, and like. spoiler marker time, probably:

there are so many fundamentally cool things about how this world works, from the magic or lack thereof. roman's whole deal fascinates me, and i dearly want him to find sycamore and figure out his magic problems!!! i want him and sasha to figure it out and be besties (or more??) and i want things to be okay!!!!

i adore abella too--she's probably my favorite character so, uh, fingers crossed about that whole not dying thing. her learning wish and winning the gym battle really got to me. sometimes, you cry when things are sad (and let me tell you i did, rip ulrich), but when she came out of that battle victorious i just sorta. bawled. she is LOVELY and she deserves the world.

the way you invoke emotions with your style (both of art and of story-telling) is top-notch. i really, really love everyone's designs and expressions. not just their facial expressions, but the way they move their whole gotdang bodies is just... perfect??? i'm mega invested now, it's intense. thanks for the good story, my dude.

<:^)c oh u kno...

- this has been a planned event since nearly the very beginning of the comic and it feels so so satisfying to finally draw it out for real
- i have nothing else to say im tired and i hope u enjoy the page o/

Lol, thank you very much for including that Sinnoh languag translation, I was not quite sure what Cos was talking about

Also I swear Rowan is getting buffer and buffer!
hahaha of course! i didnt expect anyone to be able to parse what cousteau was saying lmao

Roman was just looking for clues on the professor, I thought that wasn't a secret. Oh.
yea, roman keeps a lot to himself u__u for better or worse

Welp. You done screwed up, Sasha boy.

Damn, that was an intense argument! I hope the team can make up, but given the numerology, I'm worried that some of the others won't make it... oof, this is just the beginning of a big storm, I can see it! And right off the heels of their Cyllage win, too!

She's like a sea urchin. Tough and prickly on the outside, but delicate and easily wounded if hit the wrong way. Please handle gently.
Me: No fear

A strange Pokémon that claims to be both an artist and writer, yet almost never has any work to show for either.

Me: -Sees the team on the blog has changed-

Hey Snooze??? Snooze????? Snooze you better not- Snooze hey come here Snooze I just wanna talk-

Quietly sings to itself quite constantly, and is said to always have a song inside its head. Despite this, it has a terrible singing voice.
I don't mean to be obtuse, but did Roman... die, in-game? Or is this when you put him in the PC?

I would wager this to be when ingame Roman was put on the backburner. That corner of Kalos is mean to Braixen for grinding purposes, with hard bulky physical hitters and a cave full of rocks and things that utterly flatten the line. It ain't easy to level one up there.

Meanwhile I have to ask sasha to pull his entire leg out of his mouth before he chokes on it.

Hm I think whenever I want to be sad, I’ll just come back to read this page! Such a good and intense and real conflict. Well-intentioned often is the opposite of well done, and I will now begin to prepare for the out of body experience I will have when we realize that Sasha trying to help Roman has caused a chain reaction of terrible events that lead to someone‘s death.

ah and then there were two! managed to get this one out before the end of the month so i hope you guys enjoy ;;w;;

- for those who might not remember, the ring roman has here is the same one he received from Nika all the way back in page 17! it only took him uhhh 25 pages and 2 interludes to actually use it.
- i had a ton of fun redrawing that group photo from parfum palace!! ; v ; it's been so long but it feels good to finally get to reintroduce it (sasha, as the one who carries the bag, has been holding onto all of these kinds of things!)
- the lab is located far enough away from geosenge that the average person really wouldn't know about it.
- another reintroduction as well - monvoisin! and, as revealed, "monvoisin" is actually an alias. :>

Maan I miss Ulrich
he would know how to solve this problem better
I thought with Eddie mediating and Rho's innocent wisdom, it would be enough
yeah, the team really lost its one effective mediator U__U and unfortunately roman tends to be pretty stubborn and petty when he's upset

;-; you give us kazz and mirelle and then take them away this quickly
also i see that little note sasha handed to cousteau and im calling it now sasha is gonna die while he and roman are separated and all roman's gonna have is that note
cousteau and roman is certainly,,, a dynamic. im always left wanting more with this pages, your pacing is incredible. you be out here making a professional quality comic for free
fhfdjks im sorry, they must go U_U waaaah tho i love hearing your theories and just tysm for the kind words!!! ;;w;; its means so much

Damn, that was an intense argument! I hope the team can make up, but given the numerology, I'm worried that some of the others won't make it... oof, this is just the beginning of a big storm, I can see it! And right off the heels of their Cyllage win, too!
aaa yea i've been working up to this fight for a while and im glad it had the right intensity!! guess we'll just have to see tho u___u

can rho pls have more moments like this

also i find it really interesting how edie was the one breaking up the fight this time rather than instigating it

in other news i am worried about the near future of this team
im glad u liked rho here!! and yeah, being the defacto "leader" of this group after ulrich has put her in a position that she's honestly not that used to (or necessarily good at haha). <:3c

Me: No fear
@mizar: Hey what if Sasha died while they and Roman are separated and then Roman was only left with that note.

rho IS certified baby (im so glad you liked him in this page!! ;v; )

I don't mean to be obtuse, but did Roman... die, in-game? Or is this when you put him in the PC?
he didn't die (part of my ruleset is the starter dying is gameover) but i'll decline to talk much about the in-game events that lead to this part of the story until some things are wrapped up in-comic! just to keep the surprise factor ( ' v ' )b

I would wager this to be when ingame Roman was put on the backburner. That corner of Kalos is mean to Braixen for grinding purposes, with hard bulky physical hitters and a cave full of rocks and things that utterly flatten the line. It ain't easy to level one up there.

Meanwhile I have to ask sasha to pull his entire leg out of his mouth before he chokes on it.
fjdhkg you aren't wrong, this section is pretty difficult for roman, but i'm keeping my lips sealed about in-game events for now U__U unfortunately sasha has a chronic case of Losing His One Braincell any time he starts to feel remotely anxious. its a curse

Rho is a wise little man......
