Holy cripes, have we taken a trip back to Chapter 4? Or early Chapter 3, the last time I did a colour page... This page felt like it needed to be coloured, and maybe a little something for not being able to update as much lately. I gotta say, for a change I'm not displeased about how it turned out.

A few of you might have seen me livestreaming while I coloured this =) I'll try livestream again when I sketch a page sometime maybe.

See y'all soon.

BEAUTIFUL coloring job. *o* *envy*

A question, if you don't mind? (and hopefully it hasn't been asked yet)
You've said this was based on the Red and Blue series of the games, right? And there was that statue of "The Legend" (that Atty broke). What's the time lapse between these events and the present? I mean, given the age of the guy that drags people to the gym, it's clear some time has passed (and thus it makes sense the it wouldn't be Brock at the gym), but I was wondering how much?

Also, have I mentioned how fantastic the coloring on this is? :D

Hey look, its that girl from the cover page for chapter 5 :o Don't see Brock yet though, or whoever that giant muscled guy on the cover page was. Kinda reminded me of Bruno o.o (Im actually laughing cuz as I was looking at this page and the cover page at the same time I saw Atticus doesnt have a black eye on the cover page like he does now at the gym, made me laugh).

Full color DT is too cute xD It's particularly nice to see him colored in a non-cover page. Although it looks just a bit weird in that fourth panel. I'd guess that's its leg sort of climbing on the backpack, but then the pose would be kind of different from the other panels. But what do I know :p He's still cute xD Awesome page, too. It has a different feel from the bw pages.

@Catfeather: Ash's statue in the first chapter indicates that 8 years have passed since the original events of Red and Blue (he was 18 when he died in this but is ten in the anime series and games from my knowledge). Brock is probably still alive so he could be the Gym Leader but I doubt he'd still want to be the Gym Leader when there are girls EVERYWHERE that he STILL has to meet. XD

I'm going to hazard a guess that the girl IS the Gym Trainer, and the Gym Leader will appear afterwards. The Gym Leader being the guy in the background of the cover page. Although he looks kind of like Lt. Surge.

Although his face is hidden. Maybe he's Brock with his hair grown out. And the kid's his daughter! 8D

OK probably not.

One thing I've always wondered: So gym leaders always stay in the same spot, sitting there and waiting for challengers who will beat them? I mean, can't they ever have a rain check? I mean, their love life, man. And let's say there's two trainers that day. Bummer, right? And they keep getting beaten and challenged.

This Gym Leader is definitely joining the Moképon party after the Gym Battle. Just check out the very first Moképon cover: she's right next to Atty, wearing a backpack.
It's interesting to find all the parallels between this comic and the anime (a way better rival, an overpowered starter (even if the bugs did most of the work, DT DID burn down the whole forest), a randomly picked up traveling companion, an evil duo, ...) and the differences which subvert and deconstruct the original concepts in unexpected ways.
