Webcomic Profile: Just Gotta


Just Gotta
Your typical story about a girl from our world pulled into the Pokémon world . . . or is it?

Hillaree, known by her friends as the "Mewtwo Queen," is suddenly taken to a world where Pokémon are real. She is told she will be returned home when she is ready. What could that mean? Well, since she's going to be there a while, she might as well catch some Pokémon!

A Pokémon Fan Comic written and drawn by Vye Brante. Rated Teen for some violence/fighting, blood, and death.

Currently updates on Wednesday and Saturday. Please note: This comic does not follow any established canon, but does use characters from the games, anime, and mangas. Histories and personalities may be changed.

Lady Darkrina: Aw dang. I've never run into a shiny in the Safari Zone so haven't had that experience. Yeesh.

Thank you for understanding!

Thunder the shinx: Thank you!

BolticBoom: First shiny I ever had, (besides the red Gyarados I guess,) was a shiny Smoochum. It came out a Mystery Egg in Crystal.

I later found out that egg had like a 50% chance to be a shiny so . . . meh.

BlueScales: Thank you! I shall!

Shelmet, pretty cool.

Another bit of filler for you.
Vye Brante: Probably the only person you know who wasn't excited about seeing a shiny Axew.

Don't get me wrong, I still caught it and look forward to training it. It just wasn't the Zubat I was looking for. I was really surprised because I really thought it'd be next to impossible to find one. But no. Second shiny I ran into.

And the first I found after getting the shiny charm so that probably contributed. It still took a couple more days and a bunch more hordes to find my Zubat, which I did find eventually.

If you're at all curious about my other shiny adventures in X and Y, you can see a gallery I have of them on Deviant Art. None of them are currently up for trade though, sorry. I did take some shiny requests but requests are currently closed until I fill the ones I have.

X and Y has been the first time I've cared to put in the work to try and get legit shinies. I've actually had a shiny Axew before but it was cheated. I don't necessarily love the legit ones more than my cheated ones, but still they've been fun to work towards.

Anyway, yeah. Just giving you another little gag until I can get the actual updates going again. I hope I don't make you wait too much longer, but I'm still trying to get stuff put together.

If you have any shiny stories you want to share, feel free!

Wow Boltz! Really?! No freaking way! I never would have guessed that. *Coughs*(Note:I guessed that before she caught Boltz.)

Heh heh, I personally think it's funny~ I remember the one time where I encountered a shiny giraferig in the safari zone in my Sapphire one time, so I threw bait at it because I thought it wouldn't run away and guess what?... it did xD

But hey Vye, it's okay and we understand that it takes a lot of time to get these pages up. So don't stress yourself out too much because doing the best you can is all that matters~

I know it's not a page.
Those who say the "update" yesterday know it was just an advertisement for some shinies I was giving away. I had also decided to share some of my shiny exploits in the form of gags and this is the first.

I'm only putting it up here as a way to let you Just Gotta know I'm still around. I am only just now getting back into making comics. I am really, really sorry because I know the last update from me was a promise were were going to be seeing comics soon. But production on everything just came to a screeching halt soon after that. There are a lot of factors to this so I will spare you my excuses.

Just know that things are improving and I have started drawing and editing again. I also seem to have fixed my problems with the scanner for the time being so hopefully I can get more pages out soon.

I know this isn't much in the meantime, but I hope you still liked it. As always, I am so appreciative of you hanging in there with me. Expect actual Gotta Past pages, (and eventually that extra I promised,) within the next couple weeks. I can't set a date yet but at the latest before September 15th.

Anyway, yes, I saw the Bunnelby shadow and was hitting run without even looking at the screen. I happened to glance down just as the "Got Away Safely" message showed up and realized it had been a shiny. Go me. Not sure I will ever let that go. Ugh.

Also, don't worry, Orange was not my original Gen 6 starter! Orange was my starter in my second playthrough where I did a Nuzlocke of X and named my Pokemon after their inverted colors. I just threw here in this gag 'cause it seemed likely she was who I had with me at the time.

My original team for Pokemon Y can be seen here, if you are curious: http://vye-brante.deviantart.com/art/Final-Y-Team-468925877

Oh, so that's what the blindfold was for.
