It is born asleep, and it dies asleep. All its movements are apparently no more than the results of it tossing and turning in its dreams.
Bugsy is a baby and i love him. >w< I love how quirky he is, just standing around doing his little salesman pitch to get anyone to come to his gym. I like the hustle kid!

Not gonna lie those roasted slowpoke tails look pretty tasty.

I burst out laughing when Em was practically sitting on the ground with her eyes closed while climbing down the ladder. I feel like i've done that exact thing before on the playgrounds back in elementary school. Harry is so patient XD

I like the explination of why the bad guy always has these weak pokemon. It also kinda shows how little they care about their pokemon that they cant even tell which pokes are in which balls. i bet they just have bins of them and just grab them when needed, like tools. Kick their butts Em!

I still love everything about thiiis
Like, that Em afraid of heights moment, the guards, getting the wrong Pokémon! That "Sucks to be you!" was amazing xD
And I can't wait to see what the message means this time.

I love that feeling of anticipation that comes from character's near missing like at the beginning of this page. It just makes you reach at the screen and say "hey no please turn around!" And haha, poor Em having to climb down into the well. Can't lie though, it's a big mood.

Unsurprisingly I love the battle with "those team rocket guys" too. I like that Em seems to feel confident in battling them after seeing how poorly they work together. Like "yeah okay I can handle these dorks!" But that cliffhanger! D': Poison is so scary in Nuzlockes cause u never know if the trainer has an antidote or can make it to a center in time, so even the chance of our Ellis getting poisoned is scary as heck!

Rereading this is such a treat! Not just because it's a great comic, but I can also be on the lookout for the cute little details you often put in the background of your panels, like Emilia's Pokémon clowning around.

@Kadew Right?? Haha, I feel they were a bit more competent when they actually followed orders but when they’re together they just become magnetons (the meme with the brains fusing but they don’t become smarter LOL)

@Zero he’s a good boi, so silly XD Omg yeah, they totally have some cardboard boxes with poke balls in them, written with marker “evolved” “less evolved” sjfksf

@Rubombee Haha I’m glad you enjoy the dumb guards! XD

@Tailsimp I’m glad for that! Haha its definitely a relief knowing that Ellis survived seeing all these battles with Ellis getting hurt. He was a pretty tough bean!

@QuietGuardian Thank you!! I’m glad you find the rereading enjoyable~

Part 3.3

Bugsy's Weedle is probably my favorite part about this one haha, playing along with the entire thing

So this is the first time we've really seen Em stressed in battle, but it was good to see she could keep her calm and pull through, but also realize she may have pushed Ellis too hard at the same time. It's really nice to see her comforting him as she gets him the antidote. And I really like that Ellis is tired the rest of the strip; since he's normally so full of energy, it shows that fight took a lot out of him without the need of lasting physical damage.

Also it's small, but I like the little reminder that, oh yeah, Harry is a champion level trainer lol. I know we were told, but it's cool to be shown.

And Bugsy and Weedle both looking at Em with puppy dog eyes is so cute! The way their expressions match through the whole thing is so cute, and always made me think they must get along really well if they're so in-sync.

Doesn't actually like birds all that much.
Gosh everything about every panel Bugsy is on is great, I love so much what you did to his character. But the single panel that first got my heart on this page is the rocket grunt with his koffing tucked under his arm like a piece of luggage. You do such good interaction between pokemon and other characters, it's a delight and probably a subconscious inspiration of mine.

@Zero Thanks! I’m glad you liked that little part about Ellis too, tiny silly gator pup haha

@Dee: Same! He was so tiny jdhfs

@Rubombee: I remember being really proud of that arcanine panel XD
And thank you! Happy Bugsy hahah

@Tailsimp: ahh thank you! Glad the details show ;u;/ also I always imagined the weedle being a Pokemon he had since little so they are perfectly in sync haha!

@Kadew: Hahah I’m glad, I’m such a sucker for details like that koffing luggage, it takes such little effort and adds so much! I’m happy it’s been inspiring you~

Part 3.4

Gym battle! I was very happy with this one i remember, especially the motion lines/movements.

And I'm happy Bugsy finally got a challenger :3

Bugsy, if you're gonna whoosh your challengers through a bush, then at least give them some goggles XD

It's cool to see Choco step up to the task when Em finds herself in a bit of a pinch. And I like that you tied it into the training they did at sprout tower. Gives a strong sense of continuity for Choco's growth. Gosh, choco's nervous face when seeing that Scyther and looking to Em for instruction ;;m;; It really does show the faith Choco has for her though. Even at it's toughest, Choco still had faith in her trainer to get her through it! And it paid off! Choco was able to beat a really tough opponent! (Though Em don't look so surprised Choco could do it lmao!)

I really love the pacing of the Quick-Attack showdown at the end. Forgive me, as I'm not as well versed in discussing art, so I can't break it down as well as I can other subjects, but the art and each beat in the sequence just felt so right; and it all came together in such a satisfying way. (I especially love the rough landing from Scyther. It felt rough, but not awful.) Sorry I can't expand more, it's really well done and a delight to read~

One more gym down! Em is making her way towards the big leagues one badge at a time!

@Rubombee aaa thanks!;;; i'm happy to hear that! Im really glad how it turned out lol, i definitely started putting some more effort into things lol.

@Kadew Thanks! <3 Choco is s good little birb i can agree with that,

@Tailsimp aa thank you! Choco turned out such sweet character by accident im glad it shows haha. And no worries, everything you said makes perfect sense!~ I think i tried to imagine/remember some of the old anime episodes for the pacing. I'm happy it worked <3

Chapter end, next one is dedicated to all of you Silver fans out there.

Choco continues being a good bird. And gosh I love this universe of fools. Em says have you tried labelling your gym as a gym and Bugsy goes huh i never thought of that. Amazing. Rereading this comic is such a pleasure.

It may be a little cheesy, but I love the shot of Em and Silver sliding backwards into battle positions.
