Coronis - All non 4th-gen Pokémon overworlds, and some 3rd-gen.
JackAttack, Dragonpike, and Suntro - Thanks for the ideas!
JoshR_691 - Some of the Pokémon attacks.

As you can see, I don't have much to show. I've got the plot all together, so I'll make/release comics in the time I feel like it.

If you want to know. ;) But beware, it is a real spoiler.
Shieldix and Buizom begin a rivalry. They attack each other and the battle commences. Buizom shows off it's person favorite move, Brine. The winner...you'll have to wait and see!
EDIT: Episode 4: Buizom Brine - Shieldix Shine is up! Go check it out along with the spoiler titles for chapter 2 and episode 5!
EDIT2: Episode 5 and 6 are up. Check them out along with the title for episode 7.

I dun see 6 or seven, bud.

Confusing, but good. I like the Pokeball animation. I s'pose fourth gen are all your own sprites? Nice job if they are.

OH SHI- Posting on Serebii and then on here gets too confusing....
Anyway, thanks. :D I do make all the 4th gen ones, and later on, you'll see some of my 3rd gen ones.

hmm, interesting, though kinda blocky. Each chapter seems so forced when starting, like they're each distinctly separate. However, it looks nice enough, set out well, and it seems to be fairly original, so I look forward to see where you're taking this.

Thanks. I'll try and make it immediate stops between each other from now on, unless it is a time skipped event.

Episode 7 is now up. Sorry for the delay, I've been busy, and to be honest, it's a boring filler comic.
The spoiler title for #8 is up also.

Seven still isn't up Jake. You did it again.
*Facepalm*
To make sure you post it put a link in your post where you say you updated it.

ASDFQWERTY!
Urgh... why do I always forget. It's up now though, but beware it is probably the shortest and crappiest one yet.
EDIT: Urgh... I had #8 finished and then the power cut off! I'm really angered by this, but I'll try and get it re-done. Stupid electric company....
EDIT: Episode 8 along with the spoiler title for #9 is up! Happy reading.
And I know for sure I put it up this time!

I have a question.
Would you prefer that I develop the Pokémon Cairo already has, or do you want captures more often (every 2 or 3 chapters or more) ?

Amachi
April 15th, 2008, 10:57 PM
Uh, dude. Only post your messages once, and only once. There's no need to keep deleting and reposting them every hour so as they show up on the new posts list.

Uh, dude. Only post your messages once, and only once. There's no need to keep deleting and reposting them every hour so as they show up on the new posts list.

This section rarely ever gets attention. The only way to get new viewers is for them to actually see that the thread exists. Only about 1/50 people wander here over linking to the first thing they see in this section. I bump the thread every now and then, but I wouldn't say every hour. I assumed it would be fine since I don't see any area in the rules that says it's wrong.
Ok, back to the development.
When I say develop the current team, I mean that they will learn better moves (not right away), get better appearences, get more of a personality, and become stronger.
When I say have new captures, I mean Cairo will go through the comic in a game related way and a bit of the manga feel. So a new Pokémon every 2 to 5 chapters, meaning Cairo will have a greater selection to choose from, but not always very strong. I have ALLOT of Pokémon on the potential captures list. Be warned, because some of them are assured to happen.

Shellos (Gridoh)
Shellos (East)
Cyndaquil
Burmy
Eevee
Munchlax
Tangrowth
Drifloon
Drifblim
Bidoof
Turtwig
Piplup
Chimchar
Mantyke
Pichu/Pikachu/Raichu
Bulbasaur
Charmander
Vulpix
Swinub
Togepi
Happiny
Remoraid
Nosepass

Not a complete list, but around 60-75% of the canidates. These all will NOT be on Cairo's team, just some of the ones you could possibly see.

That's true. I wish this section would get more attention. SPPF's section is filled with comics. Anyways, I've been reading your comics and they're really well drawn (like the speech bubbles). When do you usually make a new comic?

Usually when I have time, I'm bored, or it's been awhile since a new one came out (4 or 5 days). I'm going to try and get atleast half of 9 done today and if I'm lucky I'll get all of it done today.
EDIT: Episode 9 along with the spoiler title for number 10 is out. Number 9's title doesn't make much sense, because the original plan was to make it that Chatun uses Chatter. That was scrapped on accident.

Alright, I have to ask. Due to the grave in the corner, will we be seeing any random undead attacks for seemingly no reason?

In other news, does the newcomer become a main character?

The grave is currently a secret. I will not currently reveal what it is, but it will be something that wasn't seen coming.

Nope. He does become a re-curring character though. :)

Episode 10 is up along with the spoiler title for Chapter 3 and Episode 11.
EDIT: Episode 11 along with the spoiler title for number 12 is up.
There will now be a delay in comics due to me making maps. Along with major delay in comics due to maps, I'll also be taking time to do most of the characters, and Pokémon. So, I apologize, but if it gets done, it just means comics come out faster in the future.

This is quite interesting.

There is not a lot to judge as it is quite new, but yes, interesting.

I'll be happy to see the next few episodes.

Sorry for the late reply. I use MS Paint, I use paint for everything. The animations although, were made in GIMP.
EDIT: Forgot to mention, I'm making a preview comic of some of the stuff I've been working on.

Can't you send your password to your e-mail? And how did it get hacked?

Also, can't wait to see more comics!

They changed my e-Mail to a different one.
As for being able to hack it, they must have guessed my old one and changed everything.

If anyone is interested, the 4 new comics are also on Serebii forums under the same thread title.

Jake
June 12th, 2008, 4:57 PM
Finally got my account back. (Thanks to Lightning! :D)

I added numbers 12-16. I'm currently working on number 17, so it might be out tonight.
EDIT: #17 is up with a spoiler title for #18. Check them out.

Sweet! Although I never checked Serebii's comics. Are they good or like ones here?

Also, it should be "the other judges and I" not "I and the other judges".

There's about 7 times the amount there. Some good, some bad. Allot of them are first timers.

And actually, that's kind of a running joke that will be in future contests. Grant (The President) rarely remembers the other judges due to him loving every site of a Pokémon. The other judges (The Professor and Jack) are rather harsh due to their experiences.
