SIX MONTHS LATE, IT’S THE HALLOWEEN SPECIAL, by which I mean the the Ghost Trial.
Following the short tenure of Jack the Komala we have a new Alolan Pokemon to the team, Crystal King! Everyone’s camping out tonight. Hope no ghosts show up…
(The next FOUR comics are all the Ghost Trial which would have been perfect for Halloween month but because I don’t have all of those done yet and absolutely will not by Halloween I figured best not to only half’oween it.)
Whoa, what, this comic’s back?? It’s been over four months since the last comic! Well, I’ve been busy, and I’m still busy, but I finally feel like doing this again, partly due to replaying Moon. This comic I actually drew a while ago but never actually uploaded it and finally decided to wait until I had another one ready so I could be sure to at least do more than appear once then disappear again. That said the next one won’t be until next month–it might be monthly for a while.
And yes, I know that we’re basically on the cusp of the gen 8 news cycle. To be fair, this is far from the first Pokemon comic to be so slow as to be about an old gen while a new gen releases…
All my scripts were written in email and sent to myself because I’d originally been working on these during downtime at the old dayjob and so I needed to see the scripts there. Due to this I can’t actually edit the scripts, so when I realized I forgot to type down that I caught a Sandygast I just had to remember about it. Granted at this point I could put it all in a notepad since I’m doing these at home but uh.
Also FIG I’VE BEEN DOING THIS FOR ALMOST A YEAR
As hinted at last time, Mimikyu has been added to the party, slick, along with Mareanie. This is a bittersweet point–Sludgy-Mouth is gone, who ended up being ridiculously fun to draw in the comic, but she is gone now. On the other hand, now we have Slick. MIMIKYU JOKES FOREVER.
I also have a bonus image. I’ve been drawing these in MS Paint but I’m going to move to Gimp entirely so I can use layers, but because of that it would be easier to start drawing it with smooth edges instead of the pixelly ones I’ve been doing. I made a test drawing with both styles and I still don’t know ahh
And yes this is an Inkling from Splatoon with a Mareanie hairstyle. You can change your hairstyle in Spla2n and I really want a Mareanie hairstyle available.
EITHER THAT OR COUNT BLECK FORCED A MARRIAGE BETWEEN KIRLIA AND BLASTOISE.
Coincidentally, the new season of Doctor Who started last weekend! For a while now I’ve actually kicked around the idea of Pokemon Time Lords, basically Time Lords but they’re Pokemon, with the unique feature that upon regeneration they become entirely different Pokemon. The Doctormon is a Wobbuffet but upon regeneration becomes a Smeargle. It’s a concept I’d still like to do something with someday, but as I have the art skill of… well… *looks up* I couldn’t go about drawing it myself.
