Guys I really can't tell you how long I've been looking forward to this page. This exchange. This stupid idiot bet between two children with no braincells. Everything I did led up to this point, the catching of pokemon, Blue mocking Red's duplicates and weak mons, moving where the rival battle is, Red getting just a little too high on confidence. Everything was building up to set up this ridiculous premise. There are going to be a *lot* of duplicate pidgey captures in this comic and I needed some in-universe justification for the nuzlocke capture rule to make that work, and this is where I settled. I hope you like it as much as I do.

Haahahaha honestly, Red probably didn't need any justification for deciding on obliterating Blue with Numerous Pidgeys (Will they even evolve?!?!), but this does make it feel all the sweeter!

@solaris127h: Catching one extra pidgey is being a bit excited about being a new trainer. Catching a half dozen extra pidgey is riding far too much on a stupid bet between friends.

love the perspective in the last battle!

@spelonberry: I'm super happy with how that last panel came out too. Something about the low angle fisheye just makes everything more DRAMATIC

What a fantastic page! I'm so glad you're feeling better. <3 This is such a unique and splendid version of implementing the rules within the world and having it make sense! Plus the last panel- if there was music playing I swear it would have turned ominous right there. Fantastic use of perspective <3 Great job as always!

@GreyCorsola: Dealing with your best friend on some embarrassing haircut is about as soul-binding as dealing with the devil. Ominous shading merited imo. And yeah, the perspective on the last panel makes me super happy, it came out much better than the original flat lame sketch plan. Changing the camera angle changed everything.

The more Pidgeys, the better. Also Dalinar looks so proud of himself awww
Kadew July 28th, 2019, 9:55 pm
@BudgieGryphon: But if there are too many pidgey, there won't be room on the team for Dalinar anymore!

I like your reason for the "catch the first" rule, poor kids don't know what's ahead of them :'D

Can't wait for all the duplicate Pidgeys xD I had three in my FireRed nuzlocke team at some point!

@Vixenkiba: Thanks! Three pidgey is alright, for a start ;D

Kadew July 29th, 2019, 8:45 pm
@littaly: I'm glad you like it! Let's hope these kids think this silly wager is worth it, too.
