Emma is just an ordinary girl from Sinnoh; bad teen attitude with stubborn nature, a bad case of lack of manners and an overprotective mother, the usual.
...No wait, the last one is not common in pokemon at all!
Thanks to her neighbour Jun, Emma soon finds herself with her very own starter and a chance to have a normal life as a trainer! Or as normal as a runaway teen with a stolen pokemon and no trainer ID can have... Anyways; lots of camping, attempts of humour, mysteries and antics ensured!
Welcome to Sinnoh everyone!​

1. If pokemon faints, it's dead
2. Only the 1st encounter of each new route is catchable.
- Shinies are rule breakers in this one
3. Gotta nickname 'em all
4. No evolutionline OR type dublicates in team
- i.e no Charmander and charizard in the team same time. Because they're from the same evolution line and Charizard shares fire-typing with charmander!
5. No healing items until Elite Four
6. Pokemon must fight its own kin during boss battles
- i.e a rattata has to fight leader joey's top precent rattata
7. Giratina may be caught but never used
- All the other legendaries are banned

Everything about this is just. Amazing. The art style is fascinating, the pacing is exciting, and the humor is just right. It really feels like watching an episode of a Saturday morning cartoon, complete with unexpected twists (by which I mean things like Professor Rowan straight-up fist-fighting a toxicroak with his own two goddamn fists). More importantly, I love the dynamic between Merlin and Emma. I know I say "this character has an amazing level of patience" a lot in my comments, but here, it's just true, and it works so well to balance out Emma's impulsiveness/shadiness and the general shenanigans of this world. They're just a riot to watch together, in other words.

Also, final note, but I never thought I'd see a run that would straight-out make me love Roark, but oh my god, those gym battles. Especially his battle with Jun. Just ... I love it when a character massively underestimates someone else, overthinks, and spills all of that in frantic inner monologue. It happens a lot in crackier anime, and it's just gold every time it does. And here, it's 100% solid gold, especially given the fact that this is Jun we're talking about.

In short, enjoyed the run and looking forward to more! 8)

I like the panel where Jun is like Adventure! Jun is so carefree and cute in the panel. I love how Jun's Starly just OHKOed the Onix with steel wing, and Roark thought Jun didn't know what he was doing. Hasn't he ever seen what gen 3 Charmander trainers do to get past Brock? I love how they just assume that Merlin is from Johto instead of anything else suspicious about him. Guess psychics are just that common in Johto.

Jun is the best boi. Also now that you mentioned it, I guess Johto and Kanto has more psychics than other regions tbh.

So I just crunched through this comic on DA and came here to give it a friendly bump (Guys you should read this comic, its really fuckin' funny and awesome and the art is really nice to look at as is the Pokemon designs)


Damn, now I'm here on a cliffhanger like this got 100% more interesting, I'm like, there's so many interesting elements to this comic already from the whole mom being on the hunt for her kid, to Mew being all Mew-sterious and shit, to Merlin having something more going on with them than meets the eye, so there's def a fun backdrop mystery going on with the fun and crazy antics, this has quickly become one of my more favorite lockes and I hope to see it continue to thrive and do well ;w; its def a fun read<3

Man where do I even start???

The way you've done battles just brings a happy tear to my eye because they're just so good! I love how dynamic and fluid all the battles are (also that Jun's pokemon members are just complete badasses), it feels a lot like the anime and I'm really digging it. The humor is so spot on and the character interactions from Merlin and Emma to Rowan and Lucus (side note, your characterization of Rowan is very much chef's kiss) are incredible. The character designs!! I never thought of switching Lucas'/Dawn's designs, but you've shown me the light and I thank you for that.

I also adore how even though this run is full of jokes and levity, you switch from that light tone to a darker and more mysterious one when Mew shows up.

In short, I absolutely adore this comic and I'm so pumped to see what happens next 👀

If you encounter a wild Kadew, best practice is to gently bully her into remembering that she loves to draw. She forgets, sometimes.
I cannot believe it took me this long to get around to reading this comic. This is some fantastic stuff here! I love the chaos energy of Emma and Jun, Twinleaf town kids must just be like that, something in the water? And Rowan fistfighting a toxicroak and winning? The best dang thing I've ever witnessed. Add all that to my undying love for Sinnoh and you've got a recipe for me to slam that watch button and eagerly await more. That new cover looks sweet too, btw!

Returning to the scene from the beginning of the comic finally knowing what it was about is very epic! And look at that improvement, from super good to even better! :>
Poor Merlin sure has a burden to carry here. Shows that going through live not knowing about the future isn't so bad...
