Hi! Hope you all haven't missed me too much! Last week was such a crazy busy week, but thankfully now that its over I can finally relax and work on comic things and other stuff again! Thankfully my schedule is pretty clear for the next two months so expect a lot of updates!

Seems as though that evolution helped give Nate and Rhydon the victory! Who would have thought this would happen?! Just to think, the two of them were defeated by Joshy's Drowzee just the previous day! I'm sure he'll have a lot to say about it!

See you guys Wednesday with the next update!

Interesting...

Called it. :D

It's alright if you have to travel, Our schedules are not always perfect for comic posting!

Look at that, Rhyhorn evolved! Who would have ever guessed? Everyone? Ok never mind.

Nate just experienced his first Pokemon evolution! Very exciting for him. Maybe now Rhydon will have what it takes to take down Muk!

So I have some bad news. I will be traveling most of next week for work and will not be able to update at all. I know I suck. But don't worry I'll still be posting 3 updates a week upon my return! Sorry!

See you guys in a week!

@TheSpriterZ: Every background is custom made. I use some elements from the games to create things, but for the most part they are all custom made.

When I have big segments like this, I try to make every possible angle of a location before I even make the pages so I have more variety in every panel.

Rhyhorn about to evolve... :3

By the way, do you make your backgrounds?

Uh oh, things aren't looking too good for Nate and Rhyhorn! Will they be able to turn it around last minute, or will they lose?

I can't believe we are so close to finishing another story arc already! I feel like I just started this whole Gym battle! What's even crazier is that we are coming in fast on 100 pages since I started making the comic again last year! It's crazy to think if I had only continued to put the work in, I could have finished it so quickly all those years ago! So glad I decided to start again! Probably at the rate I'm going I'll be complete by the end of this year!

See you guys Friday!

Press on luck and hope Rhyhorn doesn't Flinch

More flinching?! I love how I was able to work it throughout Koga's strategy. Definitely something we don't see very often.

This looks like this is going to be Nate's hardest challenge yet. Will Rhyhorn be able to overcome Muk?

See you guys Wednesday!

And Growlithe finally goes down! He put up quite a fight though, managing to defeat two of Koga's Pokemon. Now its all up to Rhyhorn!

Its been a crazy long week for me. I'm so dead tired. So shocked I managed to get today's update done.

See you guys next week!

@TheSpriterZ: I have a basic fire sprite I use as the base, then manipulate it depending on the specific attack, adding the proper glows/transparency to it. I can send if you'd like!
