Been drawing comics since I was a kid and used to be really serious. Now I do it mostly for fun.

Looked at my notes for this part and realised I hadn't documented it properly, but that's fine. I remember it clearly enough. Basically I sent out Puck to face the Alakazam since he had much higher Special Defense than Zager. He also knew Bite (all those punches he throws here would be Bite attacks, but that wouldn't have looked as good) and at first it seemed like it would be a relatively short battle. Except. Dark-type moves were considered Special Attacks in Gen3. And that Alakazam knows Calm Mind. And Recover. And oh god it would not be so simple after all .... Puck knew no physical attacks and I now have a much higher respect (and fear) of Future Sight ...

And as always, thanks for your nice comments and patience! :D
The battle continues ... As always, thank you for your patience and comments! :> More detailed description of how the battle went will be provided at the end.
Update time! Again, as always! Thanks for your patience and nice comments! <3 First part of the Sabrina battle was pretty easy as Zager wiped the floor with it (not shown: Zager wiping the floor with the entire gym before hand). But it's not over yet ...
@Tenka: Hi! Sorry for this late reply, and thank you! I'm glad to hear you like it! :D I have no issue taking on commissions related to my comic (or pokemon in general). If anything I enjoy it and it's fairly simple since I'm already familiar with the characters. If you're interested you can email me at and/or look at my commission info here:
All right, this is is guys. The beginning of the end. The final chapter of It's A Hard Life. Not much to say, except as always, thank you for being so patient! <3
Hey everyone! Just thought I'd put this little bonus art here before we get on to the next chapter (which will be in just a few minutes!). A fan of this comic commissioned me to re-paint the cover for chapter 11(thank you again, you know who you are! :D ) and I thought I'd share.
@TaranAlvein: Was just that lucky! Idk if the Sandshrew line even learn Focus Energy? Kato didn't know it at least.
I don't even know what to say for myself this time. Discovered it's been ... what? Seven months or so since last update??? I didn't realise it had been that long. But here it is. The final of the battle with Koga! I tried to get around Muk's Acid Armour with Zager's Shock Wave buuuut, he was almost One Hit KO'ed by that Sludge so ... decided there was nothing to do but hack away with Kato until we both ran out of pp. But! The Luck! With TWO critical Swifts in a row he ended the battle beautifully ... Been planning this scene since Chapter 4 when Jojjo first encouraged Kato. x)

So Yeah. Chapter 14 is done, but there's still one (maybe two, I haven't finished scripting) left of the comic! It may take many more months ... but I will do it!

And again. I say. As always. Thanks for being so patient. <3
Update time! Finally! Thanks for your patience yet again! This is a pretty long one because I couldn't find a good place to divide it so ... took a bit longer than planned. The battle with Koga went fairly well until Muk popped out. Cogito basically whipped the floor with his koffings and the wheezing but Kato got so unlucky and missed with Dig so many times in a row and Muk managed to boost itself with both minimize and acid armour like, IDK how many times in a row now but ... well ... we'll see how things went next time ...

I also have a kinda second announcement to make. Basically, in case anyone's curious, I do have a tumblr blog where I post art and stuff. I've kept it secret though all these years because I felt a bit guilty whenever I worked on anything that wasn't this comic, and didn't want people to see that I spent a lot more of my drawing time on other things. Which is a bit silly really. So I decided to come fourth with it now! It's mostly fantasy-related watercolours (so much dungeons and dragons inspiration), so maybe not everyone's cup of tea ... but anyway. If anyone's interested, it's right here:

And no, I still can't stress it enough: I'm NOT giving up on this comic until I've been able to tie it all together. It may take some time, since I don't get much artistic satisfaction from doing it (hence why the quality of the art fluctuates a lot and it's nowhere near the stuff on my blog), but I WILL finish it.
Before anyone points it out: yes, I aware of the most blatant misspelling in the entire comic here, I just wish I had noticed it before I coloured, scanned and edited the entire thing. xD So 'Sluge' stays right where it is.
@Triangle: Aah, if only! But when I started this comic I knew nothing of printing. So a good chunk of the comic is made in a resolution that would just be a blurry mess if it was printed. And I've not been careful to store the original pages in a proper way so much of it have been lost over the years. :c

I might see if I can put together some pdf-files for free download ... but I'm not sure even that would be possible. :/
Well, would you look at that? I'm still alive doing this. Somehow. xD I know I said "hopefully it shouldn't take 2 months for the next update" ... and I really din't plan for this to take this long. But then again, I also didn't plan to fall so deep down in depression once again (though I kinda should have expected it ... late autumn and early winter months are always the worst ... and I'm petty sure I said something along the exact same lines like, last February after a long break with no updates).

Anyway, I'm a bit better now. Don't think I can make any promises at this point BUT I do at least have the next update drawn out so just need to colour it so who knows?

Also: before someone points it out. I realised too late that Koga's team doesn't actually have a Grimer ... It's what I get for not double-checking my notes because I was CONVINCED this was his line-up. xD It doesn't affect anything that happened in-game and works better with how the fight is gonna be portrayed anyway.

And again: Thanks a lot for your patience and support! It's very much through that I get strength to keep this comic going still!
Just a heads up that the next update will probably take a while. Had a longer than expected visit by a friend and going away again for a few weeks. :/
So, finally an update! Took much longer than I planned but ... oh well. We've had longer droughts. x) Anyway. Puck evolved while fighting some random Rockets' pretty early in the Silph. Co building. Not quite as dramatic as this. Not sure when the next update will be. Hopefully not 2 months though.
Yes I am alive
Welp, it's been a month and I should try to keep you guys somewhat updated at least. Was away for a bit longer than I anticipated and then other things happened. But I've started to work on the next update now - so in two weeks it should be done. Maybe even before that if I try hard enough. x)
And here we go again. Not much to say. Was terrified for Kato when that self-destruct happened, but it wasn't even a close call. Can't say when the next update will be though since I'm going to visit a friend for a while.
@Moonbeast32: I said this was going to be the last arc, not chapter. x)
@derpo: The battle against Koga had things worth telling so I decided to mix him into the Saffron arc. And no, the way my script is now I'll need at least 2 more chapters (so this one + another) to wrap things up.
Aaah, so 4 weeks have passed. My plan was to rest for 2 and then get back to work properly for the next 2 ... But I had a long visit from my mother and after that, went to see my father and so my working schedule was thrown off completely. Really should have taken that into account, but alas. So this cover is all I have to offer for now. Good news is I at least managed to script out the entire chapter + a bit more so ... there's that.

I'm gonna try to work enough to update (properly) in 2 weeks from now. But as it always is when visiting relatives - unexpected things might pop up. :/
@Guest: Bad choice of paper is what happened. And lack of time and motivation to re-draw it when I realised my first mistake. My priority is to keep my deadlines and get the story going and sometimes that means the art will suffer for it. But I'll make sure to at least have better paper next time.
