I bit off a bit more than I could chew this week, and it basically boiled down to me finishing the comic or studying adequately for my exams. Reality kicked in and I realized the latter was a bit more important.

On the bright side, we have four new Pokémon and a boatload of rumors to hold us over until next week's proper update. I, for one, gladly accept our new Fairy-type overlords. ;D

But seriously, guys. My apology for not delivering on time (and running out of guest comics to cover with).

Oh, and happy Mother's Day! ^_^

As long as we're here why not leave a comment on what your favorite of the new Pokemon is.

Mine is Chibi-Kung Fu Panda.

Gawd, all these new pokemon are so stupid, when are they going to make GOOD pokemon like the ones I grew up with. You know, piles of slime and magnets.
I'm joking by the way, though to be perfectly honest I haven't been keeping up with pokemon at all recently. What with the way Nintendo's been pushing them out one after the other, not to mention I'm terrible at RPGs, I have no patience for grinding or leveling.
And really, even if they do come out with a new type I don't know if I'd be able to get myself to buy it. The only really interesting thing about the game is A. Lookit dat 3D and B. it's set in Europe, which I think is actually pretty cool.

Elikiteru's so adorable. And hey, Electric/Normal, a new typing!

But Gogoat sounds funnier.

The one I'm most interested is the motorcycle-goat (goatercycle?) that you can apparently ride around.

What new Pokemon? Pokemon b/w 2?
DarkAura (Guest) edit delete reply
Pokemon X and Pokemon Y. It was announced in January, and it'll be released worldwide in October.

So far, nine Pokemon and one new form have been revealed: Chespin, Fennekin, Froakie (starter trio), Xerneas, Yveltal (legendary mascots for X and Y, respectively), Elikiteru (japanese name, is the electric/normal type lizard 'mon you see above), Yancham (fighting type panda), Yakamo... something something, I don't remember (obligatory first route bird, but a robin), and Gogoat (GOTTA GOGOAT FAST/GOGOAT GADGET). There's also a new Mewtwo forme, called its Awakened forme.

The region's named Karos, and it's based on France. There's also slight character customization.

Pokebeach "supposedly" (remember, half the time, they're wrong) has the English names for the latter few.

Gogoat—Gogoat (YAAAAAY)
Elikiteru—Helioptile (I don't like it)
Yancham—Pancham (Good for a panda)

You've missed a lot.

watch out,giratina
my gardevoir is coming >:D
TheMightyBox edit delete reply
The thing that I don't get is, how does Mewtwo have a different forme if it's genetically created?
DarkAura (Guest) edit delete reply
Some say that its awakened forme is what Mewtwo was supposed to be.

Anyway, there's new XY news!

Kalos region (because karos is apparently its Japanese name)

A circle of friends (Shauna, Tierno, Trevor, and Calem/Serena, depending on which gender you are)

Skrelp (medicham and seadra love child
Flabebe (a pure fairy type!)

Fairy type is confirmed; they're complete dragon slayers, and they're supposedly weak to Steel and Poison.

Gardevoir, Jigglypuff, and Marill had their types changed to Psychic/Fairy, Normal/Fairy, and Water/Fairy, respectively

Sylveon is a pure fairy type

New cities and stuff

So some Pokebeach rumors turned out to be true. And we still don't have Espurr yet dammit.

Female clone of the original Mewtwo?
GigaNerd17 edit delete reply
Naw, they've already uploaded a trailer showing Mewtwo transform into the new forme. They're one and the same, unfortunately. D:
DarkAura (Guest) edit delete reply
I saw on Pokebeach saying that Mewtwo's getting two formes: his X variation already shown and a Y forme.

It came along with a bunch of other stuff from Pokebeach, and Pokebeach is known for not having all their facts right. But they got a Cease and Desist letter from Game Freak after putting all that info telling them to stop leaking info. That kind of heavily implies confirmation.

anyone wanna check out my tumblr ask blog?
GigaNerd17 edit delete reply
Don't take this the wrong way, dude, but please take a moment to think about this. If you keep posting immature comments on a borderline spam level, you won't exactly be making the best impression on people. Trying to advertise your tumblr, your comic, or anything else at this point is just going to invite people to hate spam you in return.

I don't remove your comments because I recognize this is an important outlet for you, but at least one person has contacted me to express their annoyance with the things you leave lying around. You don't live in a bubble. It's in your best interest to think a little before you post, because I can't guarantee your safety beyond that. As such, odd, out-of-context quotations, Creeper impressions, and Ralts' irrational crying are probably best left to your tumblr.

Again, man, don't take this the wrong way. Me and my co-authors certainly appreciate your endearing enthusiasm for our comic, but I'm worried that you're digging your own grave.

Guys someone got on my comic fury account and they know about my tumblr. Also I hate spam.
GigaNerd17 edit delete reply
Stop it. You've been following this comic long enough to have noticed if someone else was posting comments under your name. Swallow your pride, stop telling lies, and grow from the whole ordeal, okay? It'll bite you in the butt later on if you don't.
