Hey everybody, and welcome to this...mess. So, to make a long story short, this is a run I have had in the works for a while, and the entire basis of this was based off an idea a close friend of mine (Kingklang) had. The uh...the basis won't become apparent for quite a while, but just stick with it. This run is already complete and scripted, but speculation is appreciated.

Rule #1: You can only catch the first pokemon you find on a route.
Rule #1B: If you have caught a pokemon previously, you can't catch it, or any other pokemon in its line, again, and it doesn't count as your first pokemon.
Rule #2: If a pokemon faints, it dies.

Oh, I don't think I've ever seen this run before. I like the expressions of your characters! I can't say much about the "plot" this early on, but I can appreciate that we just skip over the intro. Been there, read that.

Doesn't actually like birds all that much.
Welcome to the new forums, that avatar is horrifying but somehow fitting with the tone of your run so far. The run is already scripted in whole? That's very impressive, good job on figuring out where you are going so early on. Do you think much will change about that script as you move forward on the comic and as an artist/writer?

@Bug Thanks, i've been trying something new with the expressions, and I'm glad how it's working so far. And yeah, there have been so many good jokes made about the kanto games intro, that I figured why bother trying to stand out?
@Kadew Yeah Old Man Mime is terrifying and I love it. Yes, it's all scripted, because I'm an overachiever who likes to put too much stress on himself. I've already come up with a few tweaks and changes through the story to make things flow better, and I already know that because I'm a lazy PoS I'm going to do some clever workarounds of really complicated panels.

Speaking of complicated panels, this page took me two weeks to make. Technically it's been almost three weeks since I posted page 3, but one of those weeks I was out of town with family. And man does it not feel like the time and effort was worth it. But please, enjoy the longest page of the comic so far.


I also acknowledge my own inabilities to art effectively at times, so I'm planning on doing weekly updates. Whether that includes one page, two pages, a page and some extra art, or just extra art because it's taking me too long to finish a page, it's gonna be weekly.

It's an azumarill. You caught an azumarril.
Ngl, I think the thing that really draws me to this run is just how casual Leo is.

Because that's not casual. That is straight-up depression, my dudes. Like, from the waking up with a monotone "neat" to shrugging off deaths like Leo can't even muster up the right emotions to react to it. And as funny as it is to watch him just breeze through Oak's lab and blow Danny off—as silly as the art looks—Danny ... has a good point in worrying about Leo. Whatever's going on, this ain't gonna end well, and it's good that Danny's dedicated to reaching out to Leo and trying to pull him out of this before more pokémon get hurt.

Or at least, I think that's what Danny's trying to do right now. And if so, heck yeah to rivals who aren't complete dicks, on that note.

@Minty Electronica Man do I like your view of all of this. But yes, Danny isn't a complete dick, that is one of the main things I started with when writing this comic. I'd give pokemon some slight redesigns, I'd try my best to mix up expressions and styles to get a feel of what I like, and that the rival wouldn't be a total douche.

And today we follow up the longest page yet with the shortest page. Because boy do I know how to make consistent content. Also tried out some new things with backgrounds, and I think it looks pretty good.


Next week is gonna rock you like a...rock...storm.

Surprise, early page! I've actually had this page bouncing around in my head for like...a month now, so it's good to finally get it drawn.


Tried some fun new things with this page, and because I forgot to mention it last time, I've officially given Turt pupils. Makes it easier for him focusing on things. Unfortunately, not going to be another page for at least a week, because I'm out of town starting Monday.

Holy crap, that Onix is massive!!
are you sure this is Kanto? lol
Equally, it requires 5 water gun to take it down huh?
This run is bloodier than I initially thought it to be!

@Velink Yeah, I always love when Onixes are shown to be like, kaiju size in comparison to the starters. And the blood was actually a decision rather late into making the page...so late that i in fact forgot to add the dust effects because of it

So. It's been a few weeks since I last posted. That isn't because I haven't been working on pages, it's because I now have a full time job babysitting my little brother. Thusly, it's been me trying to find time to art while also keep him entertained. Also this page was strangely difficult to work on, I dunno why. But we'll be back to weekly updates now, I've got a good system worked out. Also, enjoy an extra little thing of reference art for the other team members.

So you went out of your way to track down a paras? Interesting choice, though I guess you are about to face Misty and don't have a grass type yet. Adamant nature is lucky, I hope that cute little buggo with skullface mushrooms goes far!

@Velink In my mind's eye, it was super clear what I caught, but in actuality man did I fuck that up. Britnay's a Spearow, got instaboxed.
@Kadew Yeah...I uh...I'm totally reliable for 'strategy' and 'using things to their full potential'

So I just...I just want to say right away that I wanted more for this page. I had envisioned a much better page. But...every step of the way, it just...stopped being that. Maybe I'm too hard on myself, I dunno, but enjoy the most straightforward page yet.

Ahaha, so...no page this week. The next page isn't too complex to draw, but the problem is that I haven't been able to do much thanks to a handy little thing called heat migraines.


Next week will hopefully be two pages, cause this current one is nearing completion, but I know I won't finish it this week. See you all next time!

I'm gonna side with the grunts here, fossil puns are very important and getting just the right one is of upmost importance. If only our protagonist could learn that.

@Kadew Yeah no, unfortunately Leo isn't part of the A-tier pun games at the moment. But who knows? Maybe that'll change?

Missed out on an update last week, but that's solely because I was embarrassed that I still hadn't finished the page. But uh...after 3 weeks, enjoy a page with minimal actual involvement from the main character!


And for page 10, well...I'll just leave this here for scale.

Hm, I wonder what our "hero" was doing over there at the house with the cop in front. He looks so not-suspicious-at-all as he's walking away. And I sure do hope Turt McGurt and Danny can get him the help he needs.

@cunprocz It's just that I used repels to get down to the hallway level where Paras is the only pokemon you can encounter. Really easy to get to, actually.
@Kadew Nothing suspicious at all, not to worry one little bit.

So since this is a big page, I decided to go at this one a little differently. Here's a preview of the brand new sketch layer I decided to use first. Not too many spoilers for the page in it, hopefully I'll be able to focus on this over the next week.

So, what happened to pages.

Well, the page is a big one. So big in fact, that I figured I'd have to break it in half probably. I was planning on posting the first half of the page this week.

Then I realized what date it was. Turns out this week is the same week that we're getting our floors yanked out and swapped over from carpet to hardwood paneling. It's very nice and totally not disturbing to me. As is the fact that I'm typing this up on the last night that the computer is plugged in. Meaning I won't be able to draw anymore of this page. Meaning I won't get anything out this week. Hopefully I'll have the page ready by next week, sorry for the major delay, but I personally think it's for the best.
