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
I'm glad it was impactful. This scene has been planned for a very long time and I put LOTS of thought and time into its execution, so thanks for reading and sharing your thoughts!

maybe it is best to just leave the matter to the authority..
if they are more competent that is!!

The dilemma, between doing the kinda right thing, wanting some action, and fearing for one's safety makes this rocket hunting thing pretty complicated, huh

I love when Speckles burned Corey's dance dance evolution skills XD. But oh no, Corey is not taking the loss well, just like how he caught Pearl in anger after Ty split up to chase team rocket that one time. Celia mentioned that Ty's team are her only friends, just how restrictive are the kimono girls who took her in? I know they don't like tattoos or piercings, but Kira and Celia seem like they were a bit isolated from others. Why do I have a feeling that team rocket got to Scarlett's family? If they did, and Scarlet pleaded with them. She might know it's a lost cause better than anyone...

I'm noticing a trend of team rocket being involved with every death. I like it. It keeps the tone of the world where pokemon don't battle to the death, while highlighting just how vile team rocket truly is.

The Kimono Guild doesn't explicitly prevent Celia and Kira from talking to people or anything, hence letting Corey's gang visit, but there doesn't happen to be anyone their age currently in the guild so they don't meet peers very often

And I'm glad you like that aspect of Team Rocket! That's definitely why I chose to make the deaths happen during Rocket encounters so far

Xo gaining arms when they evolve is kinda hilarious, yet also makes a lot of sense at the same time. I love seeing Corey and Ty work together to help guide their teammates to victory. Pryce's team makes a lot more sense here then it does in the games. The extra variety and type coverage is awesome. I love that panel of Speckles being like so proud! It's the ultimate reaction image. With Omelette being able to topple a Mamoswine it's no wonder why team rocket wants to get to them. Please stay safe, is they got to Omelette, that amount of psychic power would cause mass destruction. Or perhaps they are planning to do something else with Omelette...

This pokemon is known to make weird comics at random, no one really knows why.
I love the redesigns in this comic, raptor togetic and robo hand magneton are super cool!

dang man, garret's death was heartbreaking, especially the epilouge showing that prior to joining the team he had no one to call family or even a friend, R.I.P nidodude

If you encounter a wild Kadew, best practice is to gently bully her into remembering that she loves to draw. She forgets, sometimes.
Turning the second and third orbs of magneton into big round punchy hands is a super unique take on the guy. Congrats Xo for having grabbers now! I love and support this orb x3 now

They're just knocked out right? No one checked their pulse. There's no visible injuries on them. If they were really dead there would be anime style soot/scratches on their bodies, right? Please tell me someone just forgot to check their pulse. Besides it's not like Corey is going to walk up to Ty to find out he's alive, with a dart in him. That is the cruelest thing that could happen.
In your Halloween collab piece both Speckles and Ty were in it and they died were seriously injured, does that mean that Vlad is next?

If I had to guess what happened it makes no sense that Ty and Speckles were sent out against the red Gyarados instead of Xo. But the battle caused an explosion, and team rocket Koffing are infamous for exploding. Why wouldn't you trust your super effective psychic type or your strongest teammate starter to deal with them. Please let them be okay, it's not like you would kill off a main character like that, right? Please let that be right.
