You said you didn't want your new team to be the same as your old team. However, you're setting the Togepi up as a pretty powerful team member already. Is he planned as the exception to the rule, or are you planning a different direction to take this? (I can think of a few possibilities off the top of my head, as it is.)

Wow, your togepi used metronome and got judgement? That's some impressive luck!

Poor Cassandra, she (kinda) even had her own Bonus Comic! I was hoping to see an Ariados! Oh well.. we have Weston now!
I was hoping to see Broseph in action too.
Acually seeing that you are not drawing Ichabod often it looks like he is gonna die soon!
Also didn't you say that you will try to use diffrent team then in LG?

I didn't even know Metronome could give you Judgement. I kind of ignore Metronome because I'm doing a Nuzlocke challenge and I'm worried I'll get Selfdestruct or something like that.

But I've got a question (maybe there's an oblivious reason that i don't know, in that case sorry for the ignorance): why does Weston got that mark on his forehead?

(As the last time, I hope I didn't make grammar mistakes XD)

commenter (Guest), April 4th, 2012, 1:43 pm     Reply

Weston must've picked up a Shiny Leaf while petty was level grinding him, which is simply an item a pkmn walking through tall grass can pick up depending on the route and on the pkmn's nature. From what I can tell, it's just decoration in-game even when you collect all five Shiny Leaves and turn them into a Crown.

@Petty: Can you set up an rss feed so we can know when new comics are put up there instead of checking the website to see if there is an update.

JKTomas (Guest), April 8th, 2012, 8:11 am     Reply

You know, maybe it would be better if you wouldn't put so much effort into one episode by coloring it. LeafGreen was fine in black and white and I suppose it didn't take this much time to make it. Colored comic is certainly prettier, but I could live without colors as long as the updates are more frequent. Anyway, I love the series and it's only a minor complaint.

Captain LeBubbles, April 27th, 2012, 10:41 am     Reply

@Guest: Given that Togepi learn Metronome at level six, and the wild Pokemon in that area aren't very many levels above that, it's not too big a risk. Petty probably decided to put a few levels on him before moving on and that just happened to be one of the metronomes that came out.
