I feel a little more in the mood for drawing lately. Maybe it's just because I've got a new chapter to be going with, maybe it's just because I've been in such a downer about art for so long it was bound to swing back around eventually. Either way, time for me to try and get as many updates out as I can while it lasts!

I have bizarely little to say in this update. How unlike me. Regardless, I hope you're all doing well.

See y'all soon.

Your drawings are so detailed and true to the series, it seems as though as this is legit and not fan-based.

Boom @ Kris / Enigma
Well I imagine part of it is; when a poke-ball fails and the Pokemon escapes, the spacial compression of said Pokemon normalizes. This is why a ball is lost when a Pokemon breaks free : the rapid normalization is like a grenade. I imagine it's even worse for large Pokemon. So you can try holding closed a tennis-ball sized container with a compressed wailer. I'LL be over here, hiding behind a tree-rock thing.

Through analysis I have determined that rapidly pressing the A button results in a statistically significant increase in catch rate. I know it's not in the game formulae, but I conducted over a hundred tests.

He hit weedle with gust what, five times? And insect Pokemon are weak to flying attacks. At this point he's just trying to catch a dead bug.

If you press A + B + Down every time you catch a pokemon, you can never really test and find out if it really works...

I just pressed one button, by the way. Every time it'd do that moving thing, I'd press the button.
Edit: oh, the person above me said the same thing. O_o I guess my way isn't unique. (now do I feel relieved, or stupid for doing stuff I knew wouldn't help?)

Vision The ball isn't actually flattening, it's wobbling around it's gyroscopic axis; creating the illusion that the ball is wider in the direction of wobble. If you don't understand what that means get a ball or bowl and spin it on a flat surface. Or buy a gyroscope.

GodHand? Also @ ele-blithe: The technical do-hickey that shot the ball is a 'hand'. The ball was expelled in a process known as "throwing" whereby thousands of tiny insects on the "hand" excrete volatile substances from their eyes, which then react to propel the ball forwards with a violent explosion.

Mash the A button like mad!

Or time your button-mashing to match the bouncing/wobbling/starburst-thingy.

Come to think of it, I use the B button sometimes, too. Which is odd since that's the "no" button.

This is what a true cliffhanger is made of.

Actually I think caterpi is more useless. At least weedle has poison sting, caterpie has tackle. :(
Also I hold down+B when I catch pokemon. :/ but she has the face I reserve for legendaries. I could care less if I don't catch a bug type ( unless it's scyther or pincer they actually rock)
