Leaf has got to work on her superhero landing more. Nana leveled up some off-screen to learn Leech Seed (No Pidgeys were harmed in the process.)

Again, to clarify things (since I haven't stated it very clearly): There are two Rattatas - Bloodfang is the one without the notch in its ear. It also looks much meaner (What have you been feeding it, Joey?).

Bloodfang is just the perfect name for an edgy angry kid to come up with and I love it.
Youngster Joey lives on the edge. He's made up a theme song for himself and everything.

I love all the little details like Joey having his initial carved on his cap and the Rattata spitting out blood (which kinda makes me feel bad ganging up on Pokemon in Route 1 by the way) - they really add up to make the characters feel more fleshed out!
I'm going for the shounen-anime fight kinda style here where characters can lose blood but still fight even after sustaining a lot of damage. As for the Route 1 'mons, I'm sure the ones who are the most eager for a fight are the ones who pop out right away!

Joey what are you even doing here, go back to johto! Bloodfang, excellent name for a edgey little boy, can't wait to see these good beans teach him a lesson somehow.
Leaf and Nana are two good beans! They're both just soft babies~

Oh man that entrance, I relived every single time I've ever slid on wet grass as a child as she fell. Cannot trust grass no sir.

I love the distinction between the Rattata designs, it really shows how mean Joey's Rattata is! And Leaf slipping on wet grass, gosh what a mood.

Jesus Christ, Joey. Why are you like this? In Firered/Leafgreen, he actually also has a Spearow.


But it makes sense that he's so strong, considering he's been level-grinding this entire time on Lvl 2 Pidgeys. I think the power's gone to his head a little bit. And he's not willing to let it go.

It wasn't very clear before, but our Rattata friend only has one eye.

I can still remember the sensation *shudders*.

Thanks! I try to make them easier to tell apart, and pokemons tend up pick up attitude from their trainers.

Wow, despite playing FRLG several times, I completely forgot Joey also has a Spearow. What a jerk. I do love that panel of Nana standing protectively besides Leaf ;;

Wait a sec, that's the youngster Joey from the area north of Cerulean! He's travelled a long way and must've been grinding for ages to get to level 15 from all those route 1 babies. I think it's super cool that you've drawn inspiration for this little arc from trainers not even from around that route, very creative.

In concept, having a plant grow on you and leeching your life force is a very scary thing. And there should also be a reason why you can't just remove it immediately (hence the vines).

He's traveled a long way indeed! This Youngster Joey actually lives closer than Cerulean, and I'll expand more on that if he returns.

Hell yeah, go off Leaf. His Spearow's name is Lance - a reference to the Elite Four member? :0 Either way, you done goofed now, Joey.
Also, love the banner you draw for this run! It's so cute, and I love the good glimpse it gives us of our new Rattata friend

I only realized there's a banner submission after I made my banner... in the wrong dimensions! I spent some more time cropping/stretching with no avail since Leaf kinda took over the entire height of the banner. So then I made the banner way longer to get the proportions right, shrunk it, and now it looks blurrier 🤨

Hell yeah, go off Leaf. His Spearow's name is Lance - a reference to the Elite Four member? :0 Either way, you done goofed now, Joey.

Well, it's actually from a boxed Spearow that I caught! I did use him for a bit buuuuut something happened so his time was very brief. Here I made him a member of Joey's team instead as a cameo! His name came from the sharp beak he'll eventually have as a Fearow. But I bet Joey idolizes Lance enough to use him as a namesake.

oh shoot! now that Joey is pokemon-less
better stop there.
Unless he has a secret electric mouse to fry all the birds
Haha, Joey's getting the Ash Ketchum experience but with Pidgeys. Bloodfang might be a mouse but it's not an electric mouse.

Oh shit, we gonna see a little guy die today :l
Only if they catch up to him! Watch him actually be Ash Ketchum and steals Misty's bike

Oh man oh heck, I'll look forward to that secret cerulean joey lore, if he can even survive this. Birds gonna peck his eyes out and then some

ps the new banner looks super cute!
Thanks! We're already seeing signs that this may not be the last time we see Joey :)

I was just about to wonder out loud who Joey's brother is, and then Leaf basically said it for me, lol. Leaf recounting the battle enthusiastically is adorable!

Can't believe that gary is dead and Joey is the new rival jerkwad major character. Also I love love love Leaf being all excited about her bulbasaur, number one bulb fan. She's precious.

The Pidgey Stone is the Pidgey Stone. Nothing more and nothing less.

That Pidgey's name is Aria. Like Lance the Spearow, I enjoy giving some of my boxed 'mons I used briefly a cameo since I didn't get to keep them on the team for whatever reasons.

I was just about to wonder out loud who Joey's brother is, and then Leaf basically said it for me, lol. Leaf recounting the battle enthusiastically is adorable!
HMMM, LET THE SPECULATIONS BEGIN! Leaf loves pokemon, and her inner pokemaniac side is showing through XD

Oh man..... who's the brother ... this has gotten suddenly INTERESTING as fuck in here. Also that battle recap adorableness, I love Leaf already
Any theories? 👀. And I'm glad all you guys love Leaf's adorable enthusiasm! She's such a sweet cinnamon bun.

Can't believe that gary is dead and Joey is the new rival jerkwad major character. Also I love love love Leaf being all excited about her bulbasaur, number one bulb fan. She's precious.
I was also thinking about Gary/Blue and why the heck they suddenly got replaced! But Blue here will be the 'cool, mysterious' sort of rival while Joey's more 'bratty younger brother' kind of rival? Man, maybe if I do a run with Let's Go Pikachu, I'll name that rival Joey?

I like the idea of giving boxed mons small cameos. And look, cool Pidgey gift obtained! I'm seeing potential for a Chekhov's Gun (Chekhov's Stone?) situation where it may come in handy later, but who knows! I also love the dynamic angle of that last panel, the shading is so well done, especially on the Pokeball!

Took the rest of the day to create this chapter cover. Who knows how long the chapter 2 cover would take? (hint: Whenever I get the inspiration)

Leaf's tips and tricks of taking care of your Bulbasaur:

1. Keep her hydrated!
2. Give her plenty of attention
3. Photosynthesis helps your Bulbasaur gather extra energy to play!

Let's see what the Pidgey Stone will be used for! I mean, apparently it's a ticket through Viridian Forest somehow.

I like how the shading turned out too!
