Pff, if we have a fine example of a 0 outta 10, the only way to go is up! Possibly. Probably!Is that... a parent's name I see?
Hey, they have to be better than Lusamine.
That face when...ALOLA. To which no small number of very disgruntled rats in a very rainy town would crush a can in MOOD.Def like that there's a lot of intrigue going on in this page, especially the last panel and Leh's: "Ah shit, here we go again." Face XD
Thanks a bunch! Means a lot to hear that, since I'm still settling into drawing mons again, it's always a fun tightrope walk of how much to stylize.Ugh, your Pokemon look so cool! Really digging the designs.
Lehua's neat! Private Detective isn't the most common protagonist profession, and already it's played with in the plot in a fun way. Looking forward to seeing how she juggles all the problems falling into her lap.
Oh yes, it is fun to set up all of the bad blood going on that's for certain. Very much going by some very very stifling vibes I got from Alolan traditions that I got on my various playthroughs, so expect that all of this is gonna get elaborated upon :)Hm, those townsfolk don't have particularly nice things to whisper about Lehua. There's clearly a lot of history between her and this island ceremony, and it's not good history. No wonder she stays away where she can, but also, this is going to unfold in an interesting way and I'm excited to see it.
Hehehe, yup. Conflict - it really is the lifeblood of a setup and I'm marinading in working on the build. And Fizz sure is giving me some appreciation for the OG electric rodents I didn't know I had.Oh I just adore this set up, I can already tell there's gonna be some juicy conflict from this scenario and it lets us get a tiny glimpse of our protagonist's past, super excited to see how this unfolds! (Side note, Fizz's expression in that one panel is just adorable)
Now this? This is Sang to a T and I love it to b:V c
Glad to hear the build's proving to be interesting! And all will be clear in time~ all I can say so far that my interpretation of Alola is a bit less sunshine and rainbows than what the game tries to portray, so that'll be a deep diveCan't wait to see what's got everyone so riled up about Lehua.
RIP, Fizz, not gonna get that Cool Chu moment today... vo vPff, that moment when you're trying to take a battle seriously XD
For sure, the way that Hau is just about the most chill person in the region is the reason I do enjoy his character a lot. And for this run? I do enjoy that I can use it as a good contrast to how a lot of other people are acting - a wall of negativity can be a bit much after a while. 10/10, would stan.I love that Hau's nonchalance (which seems pretty close to canon so far) contrasts with the other people. We stan a good boyo.
Hau's Pichu is a good too! :3
Given how they're sweet kids ingame and I am taking a more antagonistic approach with some other characters...yep, I enjoy having Lillie and Hau as a pleasant contrast to less pleasant grumblings, for sure. Hee, and ingame, the little guy would do nothing but spam charm. Charm, charm, more charm. I guess baby mons would just rather play than brawl.Hau and Lillie are such sweeties!! I'm glad Leh has at least a couple kids in her corner!! Also I LOVE that Hau's Pichu wants to be pals and helps to diffuse some of the tension built up by Leh's history with the townsfolk and the ceremony itself.
Hau's the best bean, always gotta have someone around who can contrast a bunch of very intense adults. And thanks a bunch! I am trying to play with some more dynamic angles here and there, so it's really nice to hear it's noticeable~Hau is a good bean... and also thank u for this high dose of cheek squishes, it gives me life. ;v;
Love that panel with the view on the team from the top, the extreme angle gives a cool dynamic feel to the start of the battle!
Everything is possible with the power of SUPREME RODENT BRAT BABY!Fizz used circle throw
wait!! Pichu aren't supposed to be able to learn that move!
also Lehua is only as tall as Hau?
is Hau older here?
YES! That's one hundred percent the energy I was going for with that panel of uh-oh! Hau's gonna have to watch his floppy-eared chu, so many CUSTODY OF CHILD requests XDPfff
I'm gonna steal Hau's mouse baby and no one is going to convince me otherwise.
Fizz says: Never forget arm day! Maybe ransacking all those berries from the fridge was like chu protein for him :OI think Fizz must secretly be as jacked as Lehua!!! Also Hau's poor Rowlet looks TERRIFIED in that last panel (as he should be tbh)!
THIS IS FINE / 10 . Which is almost painfully fitting given who's about to join the fight...I'm terrible.Hau on the outside: "I know we're a bit on the backfoot..."
Hau on the inside:
Grappling: when you're a pragmatist, but you really, really don't want to rough up a baby chu too much - just look at the innocent flop ears!Gotta love an outside-the-box battle strategy that doesn't include mauling the baby!
Also the illumination from the PokéBall effect at the end looks epic ;v;
