The story continues next Monday, 28th October!

On a side note, I've been putting a bit more effort into advertising this comic recently and would greatly appreciate if you could take a moment to vote for it on TWC. I know this will always be niche and obscure but (I've been told) every vote helps. You even get a special bonus pic just by voting :) No login required!

Thanks for reading either way!
@Jigglypuff's Cookie: We'll find out eventually what the whole thing's about!
@artofjoe: Good to see you back, hope you like it!
@Tepig16: Yeah! His methods are a bit extreme but it turns out Pikachu's a decent move tutor :P
@BeretCat: Thanks so much! :D
EDIT: Updates resume 21st of October, please check back then!
@Owyn: Absolutely. Pikachu's gone way too far this time :<
@Owyn: For sure!
@Owyn: Yeah, Incineroar has a tendency to Bulk Up when angry :D
@Theresia: Very happy to hear that, since I want it to be as seamless as possible. Thanks heaps!
@TimeSceo: Thanks heap mate, I'll keep trying my best!!
Poor Junior... Can't catch a break.

Hope you didn't miss any panels; scrolling is now a thing! I've been working on a way to reduce the huge page count of this comic (especially for the action sequences) and this week's update was the result.

Next week's update may require me to finally take that short break I mentioned I might take a month or two ago... Some IRL things have come up that are taking more of my time than usual. Will see how I go...

There is a light at the end of this tunnel!

Check back on the 7th October for more. I intend for it to be a bigger update than normal since it'll be the last I'll post for a week or two. It'll be like one of those 'season ending' episode type things. :X
@Captain Ghost: Thanks! It was just a must for this page. There'll be maybe 2 or 3 more moments in this story where I'll be using the color. Ominous!
@Ernickle: The hardest thing for me is knowing how the things you've described tie into the future of this story and being unable to write how without spoiling things. As much as it probably seems the case, I didn't just do all those twists and turns to subvert expectations or needlessly extend the fight. The ? box sequence wasn't pointless - it's integral. The 'dynamax' foreshadows a very important part of this story, and the reveal of dynamax while I was still working on this perfectly coincided with my plans so I decided to go with it (The Titans Chapter was going to happen either way).

I've acknowledged previously that I took the actual fight sequences too far and got carried away, but I've already made steps to cut down on the fight, and I'm still in the process of working on it by way of page merging. I've tested this and it's effective when done right, but will see how I go.

The emotional aspect and underlying themes you eloquently described (thank you) will always be the core of this comic, and the future of this story is going to really be pushing them to a deeper level. Honestly, I'm just anxious to read what you and others will think once it's all over.
@malektorche: Haha! This is a very different kind of Pikachu :P

He already has a trainer, and she's... probably not the greatest influence for him. We'll learn more about her and their connection very soon!
@Owyn: Incineroar is going to be furious. The quest to retrieve Pichu and Delphox just got a bit more serious!
@Ernickle: I'm working on a way to reduce the number of pages and speed up all the action scenes. Might be too little too late, but if I'm going to continue this much longer I need the page count to be more reasonable.
@Tepig16: Pikachu's lost it. Incineroar's not gonna be happy!

Thanks though. I won't be using the red too often but it works well for pages like this. :)
@solaris127h: I went through a lot of mock ups for this page, and eventually decided that the simple bold red backdrop was the most effective :)
