This comic is dedicated to my friend who literally gifted me this game.
Thank you miniza!

It has not the best english so if something is wrong let me know!
And pardon me for my chatspeak... it gets better later...

( * Smackjeeves no longer updating since Chapter 9)

Carrie. Tatsu's sister. She wants the best for her brother but she also hides some mysteries duties.

Solsticio. A PKMN trainer who wants to defeat the league as well as any young kid.

This comic's got so much charm, I really love tatsu. You did an amazing job fleshing out his character within just the first few pages. It's got such a recognizable art style too!! I admire artists that can pull off loose styles like yours because I sure as hell can't. Really excited for this comic!

Despite being found outside it's Australian home range, wild DIngopox still feeds exclusively on Timtams.
How cute! The style puts me in mind of Sunday newspaper comics like Family Circle or Dennis the Menace. It's such a unique style it's sure to stand out. I also really appreciate the character cheatsheet!

I'm so excited to see Sunshine on the new forums!!!! I adore your expressive art style, and love Tatsu the empanada man so much. 😭 I love how he misplaces his faith in his sister and fights so hard for his sweet Zuzu to get better. I'm so hype for more!!!

I never commented on this on the old forums but I’m glad to see this made it here. Tatsu’s such an easy bean to root for. Give the man a break, he just wants to chill and sell empanadas!

@mizar Wow thank you! I started this nuzlocke as rough comics to escape from doing more detailed comics and I really liked the way is going! Also this way I can update more often (or well, keep doing it without stressing myself..)
@Dingopox Really? I never thought about it!! (I actually love to read Calvin and Hobbes). Thank you so much!
@lostballoon I noticed I can't edit/comment anymore in tapas forums soo, it's good to start here again! And I'm so sorry to have a downer beginning with Tatsu but I promise things will get better (oneday...)!
@Xita I appreciate your comment, thank you for reading! Yeah I know, I'm also an empanada lover so I do wish him the same hehe


I'm sorry that there was no update for the last friday. Instead have a drawing <3
But for reals I had no internet and neither a computer to draw. Probably next friday I will update!​

and all caught up again!
big fan for you to include these two champion wannabe
that being said, their chance of being one might be pretty high

they seem a little annoying, but if the story has them as mc, then it will be the other way around
nice way of changing the POV, man!
Keep up the good work!

Doesn't actually like birds all that much.
I hope I hope that Lillie can clear up this misunderstanding, Tatsu deserves to be able to redeem himself of his criminal past.

Also that cutiefly is not for eating, bad Rowlet, bad.

@Velink Oh wow thanks!! I really wanted to draw another pov, I hope I do not change it too much 'cuz I'm thinking about a lot of things using the main story of the game (and nuzlocking it too). I don't wanna get lost too haha.
@Kadew Lila is so precious (to draw her too), I cannot let Tatsu to do something stupid from his past (at the moment). That rowlet must be hungy-



UPDATE: Actually no update. I'm moooving to a new house and also I almost finish my intership
so that means I gotta find a job and make my life more stable so I can continue with this comic.
-UFFF- That's a lot. But you can have some doodles.

(If you missed the last SmackJeeves update the page 46 is here)

"gotta help 4 good vibes" is an excellent motto to live by. Rest in pieces, Bodoque, bonked before his time.

Yeah! Go Tatsu! Stand up to your evil shady sister! I love how unfazed she is about everything, with that careless "oh what do you want" "oh, I can get you another if you don't like it", it's like she only ever listens with half an ear to him.
