I am a quiet person.
I work in a library and play video games.
I was going to color this digitally, but I'm visiting family this weekend and realized that although I remembered my tablet, I forgot my pen. I'll change this to the color one when I finish it.

Anyway, today is the first-year anniversary of this comic and that is the longest I've stuck with a personal project like this. Thanks for reading, commenting, and supporting. I'm very grateful to everyone!
Next page on Tuesday.
EDIT: Next page delayed until Wednesday, Tuesday just got crazy busy for me.
I've waited this long, I can wait longer. This comic is so beautiful and so worth it. : )
Thanks for commenting, guys!
Captain Ghost- Emerald is definitely my favorite Hoenn game.
mastokid- I think this is why I like Hoenn so much, as well. The terrain was really varied and the water routes were so different.
nousherwan- Wow, that's a lot of dedication in your Sapphire game.

Next page on Thursday.

This took so long to color (tone/shade/etc)!

Flaming Gingerpunch- Thanks!

Next page will be up sometime on Sunday.

Also (just curious), do you guys have a favorite region (Kanto, Johto, etc.)? I've been talking with some friends about what the defining features of each region are and I'm interested to see if people have regions that they love regardless of gameplay.
I don't know how obvious this is, but I'm a Hoenn fan.

EDIT: I had oral surgery over the weekend and am still resting and catching up on work. The next page will be up on Tuesday.

pat15- It's one of the great mysteries of the Pokeverse.
Grellilicious and SaviorOfTheFuture- Thanks!

Sorry I haven't been replying much, I'm usually pretty tired when I upload these. I really appreciate everyone's comments, though, and I really enjoy reading them!

He doesn't want a K.O. because he needs to catch pokemon (wasn't sure if that was clear).
Welp, that took longer to shade than I thought it would. Thanks for all your comments!

Next page on Tuesday.

He is very excited to be performing attacks again.

SmackJeevesNinja- I actually am going to do something with the Nurse Joys, though it probably won't come up for a month or two. I'm glad you like the comic!

Next page on Thursday.
Next page on Sunday.

Andromeda Lazuli- Thanks! I'll keep going as long as I can.
Agh, I'm so terrible with time management. The next page will be either Sunday or Tuesday.

Also, I'm sorry these pages are so dry. Actual battles/moving plot are coming, I promise.

I don't think it's a bad thing to agree with N. He was very different from other head villains (though I guess he wasn't a head villain?). I imagined that Unovites would see him differently than people from the other regions who had seen other teams in their own area.

I'm still not 100% on this style for the shading, so it might change a bit more.
Anyway, next page will be up by Mon/Tues.

I'm going to be trying a slightly different style with this chapter. It might not even be noticeable to other people but I like it better.
Anyway, I should have a page up by Wed/Thurs.
