Sorry for the delay! Hopefully updates will be more regular from here on out. Finally over my illness and got a small break from class.

For those of you who follow me on Patreon, you may have noticed that I now offer access to high resolution pages! This is the first page of many that was created in high resolution, and it just so happens that there's a very small easter egg on this page as to the identity of the woman in Rune's potato memory.

I'll add more page commentary later (including the cameo list, which is really short this time), I'm really tired and am in desperate need of a nap =w=
@Siks: Oh omg eyepatches are fine! I was just trying to illustrate that I don't want too much going on in any given design, haha. Your characters are fine for this and were added to the list.
@ScienceGamer01: me haha
Have a lot of fun things to say about this page! I guess starting with the obvious, Rune has a new look! I'm glad I don't have to draw her mangy long hair any more, she finally is starting to actually resemble a normal looking Vulpix. Some of you might notice something's a little different about Malachi, too! Like most cats irl, his pupils slit or dilate depending on the light around him. The nice sunny day makes him look 3% more intimidating.

Friendly reminder that $5 patrons get access to up to 5 pages ahead of schedule, and $20 patrons get to see pages as they're completed! Patreon support helps keep this comic running smoothly so we don't bump into a bunch of hiatuses. Any and all support is appreciated, though! Just seeing a nice comment makes my day!

Now that we're in town I can unleash a bunch of cameos!

•Matt the Raichu from The Stars Shine Bright
•Xola the Elgyem by Critic
•Joseph the Sylveon by SirIntelligence
•Shady the Litten by Gator-The-Greater
•Pika the Hakamo-o by Tehpikachu
•Woo the Whimsicott by me
•Fienne the Runner Starly from old OBT
The birth of a new Exploration Team is near! Look out, because Team Legendary is- wait... What?

And with that, Chapter 2 is underway! Updates will be regular again as long as my buffer keeps up, and since school is almost out, that hopefully shouldn't be an issue anymore!

I might mention that the main cover for the comic will update as characters grow and change appearance in the comic. Just a fun little thing, I think. It's currently updated to reflect Rune's new tails and hairstyle!

In other news, it's good to be back! I got a massive flood of comments asking why Rune's pink. The answer is she isn't (aside from the slightest of hues) depending on the lighting. Obviously putting a pink filter for the sunset is gonna make a neutrally colored character look more like the filter. You might notice she'll look more brown in comparison in this chapter. Speaking of, I'm excited to be working at "actual color" for this segment of the story, it feels really refreshing after all the same-y looking pinks and purples, despite how pretty they were to work with.

Malachi's furniture was a bit of a pain to draw out and I'm gonna regret giving him so much later, but I thought it'd give him a bit more personality than just having this empty looking house.

If any of you missed it, I still have the Fanart Spotlights up on my DA for some of my favorite Pokemon comics hosted on Smackjeeves. Next time I go on hiatus, I'll probably focus on comics I like from Deviantart or something along those lines. That was a lot of words this time! Usually I don't have much to say at all.
@ScienceGamer01: It's all good, they've been added to the list!
@Tennantstar: He's been added to the list!
@JoeytheShuppet: Been added to the list!
@Toasternoodle Youtube: Aaaah, it's fantastic! You guys did a really great job on it, I love your interpretation! ;w;

I was so giddy with excitement listening to it that I had to pause to compose myself every minute or so. I'm glad you guys were big enough fans to do this, it means the world to me!

hey i don't comment on this comic often enough, but i just wanted to say that it really has left an impact on me. though simplistic in nature, the mood of it is something that i really appreciate. subtle and humorous in its own way, i like reading it whenever i'm feeling bummed, it really lifts my spirits.

and with that i leave you a present:
@Toasternoodle Youtube: Feel free to! I look forward to seeing your interpretation. Just drop me a link to the dub when you finish it!
Aw, these two deserve happiness ;w; This is the sort of character interaction I love to see in comics. Big soft prank man just wants to lay back and have fun!

I also wanted to say your backgrounds have been absolutely stunning so far! They really make everything pop to life, the marketplace looks like somewhere that I'd actually be able to go and visit. All the intricate little details, the townsfolk walking around, every bit counts.

All in all, this has been a blast to follow so far! While I only was able to binge the original once, I can see your passion for this retelling shine through. I'm excited to see where you'll take these familiar faces!
@♡: Pretty close! They're in the same family as snapdragons!
At the time of its birth, Vulpix has one white tail. The tail separates into six if this Pokémon receives plenty of love from its trainer.

crawls out of the pits of despair
hey guys sorry this page is 1,000 years late, i finally got my midterms over with which ended up eating a lot of my free time. But hey, this chapter is finally completed! Rune gets a new tail and slightly resembles a more proper Vulpix.

bonus challenge: can you guess all of the flora found on this page?

Now that we've completed a chapter, I'm gonna take a small break for a few weeks so I can build a buffer so the lovely folks supporting my Patreon can get some more content! This shouldn't be a very long hiatus, but if you want pages sooner I recommend scooting over there to get some more content.

I don't have an exact date planned for my return, but I do want to make sure that I have a minimum 5 page buffer before I start posting public updates again. See you guys soon, hopefully!
@Sapphire: Technically it should be, but I've been working on my university assignments instead of the comic so pages might come a day or two late. This week's update should be out either later today or tomorrow!
screams into the void

sorry this is late, midterms got in the way. Hopefully I'll still be able to do the double update for March thing, but I might have to push it back. We'll see.
@Sapphire: Malachi's story on how he's only partially evolved will come up later in-comic.

As for Rune, I hadn't originally intended for her to appear shiny, I just liked the slightly pink hue more than blue. I didn't even know what the shiny sprite for Alolan Vulpix was, haha. I don't really have a canon answer for it at this point, but in-comic she probably isn't considered shiny by other pokemon. She'll look less pink in subsequent pages, she just looks like it right now because of the sunset colors.

thank god we're out of pastel pink sunset hell
unfortunately we've only moved on to vaguely purple sunset hell

First page with cameos! There'll be more near the beginning of Chapter 2.

•WinkyGoMoo's Alyssa the Helioptile and Tony the Buizel
•Tehpikachu's pokesona
•(and my Mismagius sona)

By the by, I've finally got a blurb for the comic! It's on the comic's profile, but I'll post it here for those of you who don't feel like trekking back to that.

A painted sunset stretches across the sky of a cool summer evening, and the world is dying. Only Malachi, a partially evolved Shinx appointed by "Maelstrom", is able to help save it. Though, when he finds a mute Alolan Vulpix he names Rune cast out in the sea, he finds he may be involved in something much greater, much larger, and much more sinister than he bargained for.

I screamed out loud when I saw this update, it's good to see you back! I hope you've been doing well uwu

I love the way you've been choreographing this fight scene, , it's always fun seeing pokemon's abilities being used in interesting ways. I hope Zefir and Aristo make it out of this one in one piece!

this page was both rushed and done on a train! I may come back later to edit some things like last time.

Mystery vulpix now has a name! Meet Rune! (Again, for some of you.)
