These references are sooo good just like the starter babies themselves. I love them both, but I especially love those lighter scales on Jr. Sparkly baby.

I love the cute references, and the fact that we've a Bulba with Snorlax parentage, makes me wonder if they often nap XD
Bulbasaur likes a good nap, bask in that delicious sunlight.

These are some of the most precious starters I´ve ever seen.

In an unrelated note, I finally figured out the meaning of Kurukkoo, It´s pretty neat.
Meaning? you mean where it appears in the games? Yeah it's just the sound pidgey make, a fun bird call for a comic with birds.

Wait... Venusaur and Snorlax can breed? checks bulbapedia

...well I'll be dang-diddly-darned! I really like how Bulborb Bulbasaur looks, and maybe it's just me, but I can see some Snorlax traits in there!

Junior is a dear as well, and I like the dino-like ridge on his neck...
At least two major snorlax traits bred true: the lil pointing up tusky teeth in the mouth, and being a fatfat. The teeth is why I recon'd in the mixed parentage, to justify that character design decision.

These references are sooo good just like the starter babies themselves. I love them both, but I especially love those lighter scales on Jr. Sparkly baby.
Thanks! I think the lighter scales was something someone suggested to me during a stream one day and it was like, a revelation? Such a good move, glad I made that change, shiny scales boy forever. You just know that Blue takes a rag to him and polishes that 'mander daily. Get the travelling dust and dirt off.


Another reference! I'm definitely not doing this to put off finishing the next page! :D

A strange Pokémon that claims to be both an artist and writer, yet almost never has any work to show for either.
"Dislikes being sat upon, the hypocrite." okay to be fair that is a very small bird and if you sit upon him you might crush his precious tiny little face. he's allowed to not want to have his precious tiny little face crushed. he deserves to keep his precious tiny little face.

birb can have little a not being sat upon, as a treat

I'm loving these character entries! What a cool idea! I can definitely see a few Snorlax-like qualities in the Bulbasaur. It makes me wonder - are starters typically purebreds? Do they have to have certain breed standards to be considered 'good' enough to be starter Pokemon? Or maybe I'm just reading too much into this haha. But now I kinda wanna know about all of their parents!!

Not quite a throne, but I drew her on a pretty good stump. In her mind she is reigning darkly over the land, worry not. Just look at that glint in her eye.

You're right! We must preserve Pudge's precious tiny little face for future generations!

That's much more thinking than I care to figure out, parents for every single pokemon hoo boy. Most starters are bred deliberately, though, as a part of an initiative to increase their numbers and possibly reintroduce them into the wild, which has been successful circa the time that LGPE takes place.



Blue's pidgey has never done anything wrong in her life.

She's already stolen your stuff and she's figuring out how to steal more

I love how much personality your pokemon all have! I always think it's hard to characterize pokemon without giving them dialogue or letting readers peek into their mindset but your fellows all feel so distinct

I love the variety in your designs! Even when the Pokemon characters are of the same species, they look unique enough to distinguish from one another and express a ton of character and personality without any lines of dialogue. I'm such a sucker for that type of character design

Thanks! I just hope I can keep this up for the next dozen or so pokemon, I somewhat fear that I only have a handful of distinct personalities in my pocket and they're gonna start repeating soon.

When so many characters are pidgey, it's a skill I was forced to learn haha. Gotta keep 'em straight somehow.

Truth.


Viridian Forest battles were actually no danger at all with two poison types on the team. Also, did you know that weedle's dex entry calls it the "hairy bug" pokemon? This gave me license to make them as fluffy as I desired, and I desired FLUFF.

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.
Red gently setting out Bugsy for a little switch training is the sweetest thing I've seen today.

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.
