YOOOOOO I FREAKIN' DID IT
I FINISHED THE ELITE 4 ARC. FINALLY!!!

Soooo
because of the whole forum-move-wtf-is-happening-i'm-overwhelmed phase, I'm still trying to figure out how things work and how to efficiently (but still healthily) post these 12 parts. I'm leaning towards posting a part every [edited] Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday until it's done, so that's a full month of updates.

I dunno if posting in the Discord promo every other day is too spammy, though, so I think ya'll should "watch" the forum or bookmark it or something if you wanna see the updates as they come in. 'Cause that's a thing you can do now. Wild. There's probably other things you can do but hell if I know what.

So yeah the updates will start tomorrow. For now, here are the pics I drew for pride month so I can see what this gallery thing is!

Due to the new forums AND me not wanting you guys to see the entire thumbnail before reading each part, I will be including the entire chapter underneath the spoiler. I love the preview panels though so consider that an intro. ;)

Forgive me for not doing replies in between these parts unless it is to something specific. I will probably have very little to say that doesn't allude to spoilers. But I see you and I love you all. 💖

Next part down below!

Well that's not great!!!

God I always forget Gligar isn't a poison type until situations like this come up. It's PURPLE!!! It knows POISON STING!!! That's signaling!!!

I'm really not looking forward to whatever the fuck this Plan of theirs is that Koga and Will have hesitated to launch. Doesn't sound pleasant, whatever it is.

@Jimcloud -- UGH I KNOW RIGHT? Even when I was reading my gameplay notes I was like "wait how did he get pois--OHYEAH"

Next part down below! This was the first part I drew after upgrading to a Cintiq which is why the lineart looks kinda wonky (not bad. just wonky)

Oh jesus no, this isn't good. It really does put into perspective the drastic measures that the league will go to to keep anyone out. It also, makes me just a LITTLE worried about who is gonna die in this fight.

There it is, folks. The ball has dropped.
It wasn't specifically the unfair healing that tipped the scale in the Elite's favor. It was the goddamnfuckin CRITICAL HIT RIGHT AFTERWARDS.
This turn was the one that started to give me the idea of making the potions the way they are in the story.

The elusive CJ prefers small spaces such as tiny bookstores, pillow forts, sailboats, and backstage at theaters.
Oh god. I'm scared. But, I'm also super excited to see where this arc will end up. I have a feeling this isn't the first death... and also that the Elite Four have even more shenanigans up their sleeves. I'm on the edge of my seat.

That's a reason for not healing

Hm
I'm not surprised at the death
But falling into lava seems a bit.... excessive
