I love this page, there are so many good character interactions here. I love how Corey drags everyone out to get ice cream, and how Vlad has a giant bowl of ice cream. Corey isn't shown with any ice cream, does that mean he ate it so fast that the panels didn't show it before he ate it all? I love the designs for the Smeargle and Bulbasaur newscasters. Oh no they want to interview Garret. Why do I have the feeling that they'll make fun of his inability to evolve or something. At best they'll do an informational piece about how some Nidos can't fully evolve, but even that could let people know who would make fun of Garret for not being able to evolve. But in the end, he swallowed his pride to help protect the world from team Rocket. I love how everyone tries to get an interview, how Speckles tries to share her entire life's story and how Omellett's life story is short, how Xo actually wants to give them useful information that they pass off, and how Vlad asks if he should take their soul XD. I like that panel of the entire team walking forward. I wonder if there will be more lore of the feral pokemon the next time they appear, gulp. Please don't let things go horribly wrong again. I like the use of pokeballs in the last panel, returning everyone so Lori can carry so many people makes so much sense.

Thank you!! Character interactions are one of my favorite parts of storytelling :)

Between long periods of dormant slumber, this writer rises again for periods of activity that leave piles of dead fictional Pokemon in their wake
Me at the beginning: oh these kids are fun, this art is hella cute, oh I LOVE these Pokemon designs

Me during the first three extras: a-am… I moved to TEARS… by a human kid and a Totodile who are brothers??? 😭

Me, after Morty’s gym: I AM DEFINITELY CRYING AT THE LADY GENTLY INTRODUCING OMELETTE TO THE CONCEPT OF DEATH AND THE LOSS OF RUNT 😭😭😭 I AM CRYING OVER TY MOURNING THE FRIEND WHO SAVED HIS LIFE 😭😭😭



Man, this comic has been making me cry, gasp and laugh on a regular basis. I thought this was just gonna be a lighthearted fun comic, and does have so much heart! But god, it cuts so deep sometimes ❤️ (Also your designs are INCREDIBLE, goddamn. Omelette was too cute to handle as a Togepi but as a Togetic? GORGEOUS. Speckle’s floppy ears and freckles and neck chub are all to die for. And I ADORE Vlad’s wee :3 face. BLESSED DESIGN)

If you encounter a wild Kadew, best practice is to gently bully her into remembering that she loves to draw. She forgets, sometimes.
Victory ice cream is a great idea anytime and everytime. Also I looooove this team of pokemon, how they all jumped right in to defend Garret from the nosy reporters by being so adorably annoying and annoyingly adorable that they couldn't get a word in edgewise. That's the good good friendship.

What a way to go.......
This battle was incredible! The stakes, the choreography, everyone doing their unique parts, Scarlet's badass evolution lighting up the whole area... And most importantly, the two perfect Garrett moments of him being the one telling Corey to give instructions and of his reaction to everyone cheering on him made me go AWWW YEAH!
I'm so so sad, but this part was amazingly well done, and if Garrett had to go, I'm glad it happened in just the way that was right for him.

The battle is made even worse by the fact that it's Jasmine's master level Steelix. Her best partner and friend losing their mind to rage. Powerful enough to beat the elite 4, it's levels above her gym battle. It pains me that Garret said it was a suicide mission, and was right. I like when Garret screams for Corey to tell them what to do. It's a life and death crazy situation and their attacks seem to be barely denting the Steelix, the perfect time for a trainer to do what they claim their role is. I was really worried about Ty there for a moment. I though he actually died and started wondering how the comic would go on without such a core part of it. I was pretty relieved to see Ty wake up, only to be punched in the feels a few seconds later. I like the format you put Garret's death in, it made me go "wait no. no no no" as the unstoppable happened. The team being the only ones at his funeral just makes it even sadder(though it makes sense for Garret's character). Ahh it's a repeat of Runt with Corey, I still remember when he caught Pearl without asking and tried to push forward without Ty. Ahh why do I feel like one of those mind controlled pokemon either wiped out Scarlet's family, or team rocket mind controlled them all forcing them to be put down. Now I can see why her resolve to take down team rocket is so strong. She might have been acting cold before but she was focused on a mission. Ahh just Omelette and Scarlet comforting each other
