At first I was hoping it was just a fakeout. Ty and Speckles were major characters. You wouldn't kill them both off like that, right? This page really drove in the fact that they are gone.

From your cover I thought that Ty was going to be a main character alongside Corey. An unbreakable, unseparable bond. Despite the chance of death in nuzlockes, I really thought he survived the entire play through. And Speckles. She was my favorite character. She's so kind, and shy, and you wouldn't set up a character this amazing just to kill her off so soon, right? Pearl being shown in comic at all suddenly makes a lot more sense. Aaaa. The team just feels broken with how many characters have fallen now. We have Corey the main character, Omelette who is the baby, Vlad who feels a bit more feral than the others, Scarlett who feels like an outsider just there to beat team rocket, and then there's Xo and Pearl who still feel pretty new to the team.

You have established team rocket as complete monsters. It's one thing for a villain to make the entire region a terrible place full of death battles or have them kill off pokemon. But this hits harder. With all the time you spent establishing the pokemon as characters, and all of their deaths being directly caused by team rocket, it feels more personal. Like team rocket is out to get Corey's team(besides Omelette.).

Ty is very much the second protagonist, you're right about that. He's just no longer with the team in the same capacity. Thank you as always for the comment and the support. I really like reading your assessments of what's going on

If you encounter a wild Kadew, best practice is to gently bully her into remembering that she loves to draw. She forgets, sometimes.
It was supposed to be the two of them, all the way... augh the big formal family funeral, the backs of everyone in the greyscale rain... excellent video, nailed the mood, I'm gonna go lie down for a bit.

Stay in your lane, Kyogre. Your endless rain is nothing... Compared to my tears.

This was what I was worried about this whole run, and now, it finally happened. The titular duo, the inseparable brothers... And now one of them is gone. I wish the worst upon Team Rocket. They get no sympathy from me.

You're amazing, you know that? I really really did not expect that the worst possible thing could happen - that either you would use a run for this story in which Ty died, or that you got the idea for the story after the run. It's just crossing a line of sadness that seemed forbidden. Yet here we are. :')

How do I say it, uh- I did not love the surprise, but I loved being surprised and feeling things! Big respect to you for making a story like this, and those latest scenes were incredibly well made. (Like always, hah).

I'm glad their deaths were meaningful, they knew what they were getting into and they made a difference. They shouldn't have to, but I guess that's what their world is like right now.
Man, the empty bed is an image that will stick with me forever...

I have no idea where we're going from here, but I know that I'm afraid!

*absolutely sobbing my eyes out in the corner*

Really though, thank you. It's hard to say I'm happy, because the comic is in a not-happy place right now, but I'm very grateful to see that it has impacted people so much. I've been extremely nervous about this part of the story and how people would react and whether people will wanna keep reading with him gone, so thank you so much for expressing your thoughts on this update

Somebody give Corey a flame thrower. I am really wondering why no one has a gun. Sure sending out monsters may be more powerful but when it comes to team rocket I don't see why they can't have extra protection. Since Corey doesn't have a flame thrower and he only brought Omelette I don't feel like his plan is going to go well. I love the panels of Corey riding Omelette. Omelette's redesign suddenly makes a lot more sense. I love the twist of Skye being the champion. It's such a cool callback to your other comic.

Guns do exist in this universe, but they are illegal and therefore extremely rare

Also, don't worry. The rest of the team is with him, just in their balls to make travelling faster :)

And thanks! I have been so excited to reveal Skye for so long <3

This pokemon is known to make weird comics at random, no one really knows why.
I feel so bad for Corey right now, I wonder how this series will go with one of it’s twin main protagonists. Also, she’s finally here! Is there a reason why you decided to make this character the champion?

She is the protagonist from my other Nuzlocke comic! Soul Brothers takes place chronologically after that comic in the same universe, so Skye is the Champion :)
