Reminder: this is the last page in my buffer. After this I'm going on hiatus to fix my back issues, and after that I'll need some time to get into the swing of drawing again and build back up the buffer. Hopefully it won't take too long, but I can't put a clear date on it since it all depends on whether the pain issues get resolved or not, and who knows how long that'll take. Sorry again and I hope to see you when we resume!
Linked moves used by the bad guys? That's a great idea! They look very dangerous.
Take care, get well soon!
Take all the time you need. Please take care.
Sending my best luck wishes your way for finding relief from your back! Take all the time you need!
Also as for the page itself, gorgeous as always, and oooh I love how Linked Moves are treated as a very "oh shit!" danger in this universe!
Man that art style gets better and better and its awsome been 2 months since my hiatus was gonna leave for good.
Aaaaaa why is this so beautifuuuuul
I love this! You can really see the improvement from the beginning, in more ways than one!
Finally caught up so I really wanted to finally write a comment (this is gonna be my first ever comment under any comic too).
I really love your artstyle (which looked good but still improves), story telling, it really reminds me of shonen manga, lots of cool moments, unexpected fights (like the fricking Flash Fire ability way back or even the very first "fight" with the Serperior), humour is spot on too. This might be one of my favourites comics period.
Oh! I also love you switching up the setting a lil bit, still a Pokemon only world but it feels fresh because of it being way after the games instead of kinda similar time (well technologically, I don't mean events). Humans existing being common knowledge is also refreshing (more of a reason to hide being human from everyone)
I only have a slight nitpick and it's with this chapter's dreams (it might just be me though), it really feels like there are some pages missing like the chapter starts with Kid and Lia being in the dream classroom and then Kid is in a forest (?). Then again it is a dream so it might make less sense or I am just very confused.
Anyway, hope your back is gonna get better, lots of love and take as much time as you need.
Thanks! And as to the nitpick, it is supposed to be jumping around like a dream, although there are several places that are just legitimately not fully explained because the back pain made it too difficult to execute what I'd originally wanted to do, which obviously doesn't help with the clarity of this chapter. And if not for the hiatus we'd probably have more answers as to what's going on by now too.
P1: Again, I think we missed a page/panel… where did the antagonists come from?
P2: The range of expressions are nice. And what’s that on Ninjask’s back?
P3: Also, where did Velouria come from?
P4-5: Move-links! That’s new!
P6: Move inhibitors?
..and that's all (until next time)
So maybe you'll return. Maybe you won't. That happens too. And that's okay
Either way, not sure such words are of help here, but... I hope your pains end. And merry Christmas, I guess.
