Pokemon variations are always fun to see. (That includes the little stripes on Cedar's arms, obvs.)

Doesn't actually like birds all that much.
Someday Cedar will figure out that she can be both a water elemental and an earthen at the same time. One day.

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.

Pink geodude! Because real rocks come in a variety of colors. I like rock-type diversity!
Indeed! :D It's fun to draw lots of different geodudes. Fun fact: Pink geodudes are a variety only found on Dewfish Island of Hoenn! Nowhere else in the world.

I'm glad you like her stripes! I like them too. Not everyone always notices them. >w<

That's literally the plot of this comic.

Looks like we've found some help!

I really like this new rock friend. :>

Also, holy cow I forgot it's only been like, a week in-universe. Cedar found an egg, left on a journey, dodged an attempted mugging, met a runaway, made a friend, beat up bullies, evolved, helped a pirate, rode on a pirate ship, and now is on an island- all in about a WEEK!!! How does this girl have ANY energy left??? She really is too heckin' powerful.

Woohoooo!!! I was gonna make a Heathers reference in response to this comment, but it seemed too inappropriate..

So I'll just put it in spoilers.

Free pussy! And we don't even have to buy it a pizza! BUDGETING!!!!!

This comment sent me. It projected me into the astral realm. It's approaching 2 years since I started the comic. It's been a week in-universe. A week. A week.

Big, warm, and full of love! ^w^

Time for some arguably invasive questions!

Brawler taking all these questions in stride- if only because Cedar has such a positive attitude compared to otherd- is such a nice showing of his character and a good bit of worldbuilding. Very nicely done.

Also I love the little rock baby watching them in secret! That's such a good touch to the background that makes these caves feel all the more lived in.

Although normally calm, joyful and slightly clever at school work, when you make him mad he goes crazy. This side never shows online though.
Nice. When will we reach page 420.

Thanks! Lived in is always the feel I go for with this world.

Hahaha, yeeeeeeeeeep. X'3

God, not for a few more years I think.

I try my best with them! ^w^

You okay there, Cedar?

If Cedar looking sad right now is breaking my heart, I don´t even wanna imagine when things inevitably hit the fan.

You know, it occurs to me that it seems like Cedar is copying what she's seen growing up. In Littleroot, we saw that the Elementals there often talk down about other types to build themselves up. Now that Cedar is identifying as Earthen, she's copying that same behavior to build up her new identity, because it's probably the only way she knows how. I'm glad that Brawler gently stopped that though. Even if it hurts her now, it'll be much better for Cedar in the long run if she can find ways to appreciate and build up her Earthen side without putting her Elemental half down. I really hope Brawler can continue to be a good example in this way!

That explains a lot about Shelly.
She's becoming more and more relatable with every new page.

Kinda makes sense that Ninjask are only temporarily earthens, so if the prejudice is so ingrained, they don't bother with a full blown nursery
