More like smugasaur, am I right? Then again, who wouldn't feel a little smug over completely de-stinging those weedles?

The reason she guides people all the way down to the mountain's base is that she wants them to hurry up and leave.

I just love with how much care and how genuinely you portray something like switch training that's just a mundane activity in the game. She gently places Bugsy into the b a t t l e o f t h e w o r m s ! ;A; The extremely stressed yet relieved expression as the mighty and looming Bulbasaur steps in is the best thing ever.

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.
man one of my favorite things I love about your early pages was how increadibly meme worthy every panel and expression was, and its good to see that energy is still alive with bulbasaur XD

The little ponk in the latest page really is such the perfect sound effect for just how ineffectual it was hahahaha. I feel like Red is that one meme where its like “I’ve only know Bugsy for an hour and a half, but if anything happened to them I’d kill everyone in this room and then myself.”

Between long periods of dormant slumber, this writer rises again for periods of activity that leave piles of dead fictional Pokemon in their wake
Oh goodness. Oh gosh. This art style is so heckin cute. I love these children who aren't even sharing a braincell because Blue left it behind with Daisy. I love the silly, childish nature of their travels so far, their silly bets and rivalries, and I am in fact a major sucker for Gen I stories where the protag and rival do actually travel together. And the Pokemon have SO much personality, even though they don't talk! Love it <3

Shrike is having way too much fun here.
Shrike insists on living her best life, and that is a life full of fun.

That "oh no" and "pathetic" is the freaking best lmao. Good to see it fairly smooth sailing so far at least.
Viridian Forest is smooth like butter when you don't need to worry about poison.

Red gently setting out Bugsy for a little switch training is the sweetest thing I've seen today.
Set the caterpie down gentle like hamburger.

Fluffy Weedle is too cute. Glad Red's got some poison type mons on her side, early game Kanto can be a pain without them.
A little fluff makes anything better. And yeah I was real lucky to get a pair of poisons.

Fluffy Weedle, why nobody came up with that sooner!!
Actually someone has come up with that sooner! I was inspired to follow in the footsteps of @RandomTrainer 's fluffy weedles from their comic The Ballad of Brett. It's one of my favorite active comics here, please go give it a read!

That Weedle... just a fuzzy little friend. I love them.
Bugworms are friends! They deserve all your love.

I never knew I needed weedle fuzz until today! Best buggy bean
If you need more please read @RandomTrainer 's comic The Ballad of Brett it has the weedlefluff that inspired my own.

More like smugasaur, am I right? Then again, who wouldn't feel a little smug over completely de-stinging those weedles?
Weedle says No! You can't just ignore my poison sting! Bulbasmug says hehe poison typing go ponk.

Can't die from overworld poison if you can't get poisoned in battle!
Big brain strats.

That Weedle is so cute....... ;w; And the Pathetic panel is A+, I like the shading
Thanks! The pathetic panel came out nearly just like that in my first pass sketch and I was like "i cannot mess this up it's already perfect"

I'm reading the funny bird comic finally haha heehee
also the weedle line is my favorite from gen 1 and you've somehow made them better. i love you. marry me
Sorry, I'm already spoken for, but I'm glad you like it!

Honestly? What you doin'? THERE SHOULD BE MORE FLUFF 😜
Too much fluff and we'll distract from the real stars of the show. All things in moderation.

I am absolutely living for fuzzy Weedle and this Bulbasaur design. You’re doing amazing sweeties
Every pokemon is a sweetie that deserves only the best and most friend shaped of designs.

I can't stop laughing at the "oh no" in Bugsy's eye oh my lord
Hehe I'm glad you like it! It was a sort of joke addition that I nearly didn't keep around, but it just kept amusing me so much that I had to.

Heck Yeah!

well one of those flying types is actually on Blue's team. I sorta turned the final panel into a vague gesture of "both blue and red did some battles and crushed it" bc I didn't want to show them in depth there was nothing interesting to show.

Fuzzy....... thank u for my life

BATTLE OF THE WORMS I love it. It's mundane but it was important part of me learning to love the worm. Be gentle with the caterbaby, don't want any training accidents.

P a t H E T i C. I love that panel hahaha, it made me laugh a lot!! I'm in love with the fact that Blue is still there traveling with Red. Both are marvelous children. I hope they keep learning a lot through his pokémon adventure
They certainly have a lot of learning to do, at the least. I really enjoy writing the two of them together, they bounce off one another so well.

man one of my favorite things I love about your early pages was how increadibly meme worthy every panel and expression was, and its good to see that energy is still alive with bulbasaur XD
Bulbasaur's face was so important there that it stole an entire panel to itself.

The little ponk in the latest page really is such the perfect sound effect for just how ineffectual it was hahahaha. I feel like Red is that one meme where its like “I’ve only know Bugsy for an hour and a half, but if anything happened to them I’d kill everyone in this room and then myself.”
Red is that meme 100% you are correct.

Aaaaaa thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed my comic with these dumb kids! Making them travel together has been a ton of fun to write too, dunno why people don't give their trainers traveling companions more often it's such a blast.

Oof that was a lot of replies. Thank you to every single reader and commenter I love and cherish all of you. Sorry for the two month surprise hiatus, moving house is A Lot but now I'm settled down again and getting into the comics groove once more. Hopefully I can stay there this time.

I love Red's explanation for why Bugsy doesn't frighten her - makes sense, and gives a bit of insight into her viewpoint! I do wonder how she'll feel when he evolves into Butterfree with those pointy fangs, though. Bugsy hiding in her hair is such a cute touch and I love it.
I also love Blue being in a perpetual state of scowling at everything. You death glare that sign to your hearts content, lad.

Kadew, I'm crying!!! I've been sorta quiet reading this for a while and I think I should finally say I really like what you've got here, like... fluffly weedle or not XD You've got really cute facial expression, Junior is adorable and I totally dig your Nidoran bunny.

Also, incase anyone is curious: Fuzzy Weedle concept is based on United States' Most Poisonous Caterpillar- Called a Woolly Slug or PussCaterpillar, the larval stage of a Southern Flannel Moth. The hairs that cover its body bristle, like a porcupine and sting you all at once, causing extreme rash, pain, and even sending people to the hospital. To quote Wikipedia " The caterpillar is regarded as a dangerous insect because of its venomous spines.... Victims describe the pain as similar to a broken bone or blunt-force trauma. The reactions are sometimes localized to the affected area, but are often very severe, radiating up a limb and causing burning, swelling, nausea, headache, abdominal distress, rashes, blisters, and sometimes chest pain, numbness, or difficulty breathing."
