Meh, not much to say again. Guess sometimes I just don't have much to say. Happens to even me it seems.

They're talking about Kuri, in case it isn't obvious or if you forgot. Hillaree points out how her victory isn't much to brag about. If Kuri had realy been trying, she could have wiped the floor with them during that battle, but she was holding a lot back.

We'll see later if Kuri learned her lesson . . .

Hm. Pr. Evur seems to have disappeared . . . That's on purpose, by the way. I didn't forget about him. We just may not get to him this chapter.

I got a new desktop! It's like freakin' fast! It's faster than my laptop which was a lot faster than my old desktop. So it's pretty cool. I intend to use it to split the burden for my laptop here. I may end up still using my laptop a lot though just 'cause I can use it in my bed and it's comfy and warm. Heh.

Guess that's all. Visit the forums!

yah! especially in the early seasons, every time they stopped for food, he was like crap! HOW DO I PAY FOR THIS???

misty and brock (or tracy later) ended up paying a lot, and free food was a big deal.

Cheer up Hillaree! Well, even so, at least she's realistic, right?

And I love her in the first panel. :)

Joshua, February 20th, 2010, 1:07 pm

XD LOVING the first panel!

the being, February 20th, 2010, 1:15 pm

hahaha,oh, come now, Hilaree. There are people who would KILL AND MASACRE to be in a pokemon world :D

Though, regardless, losing all your money sucks. D:

also, i think you missed my other coment, but you should put your comic on the Top Webcomics list. i know that your entire SJ fanbase would easily vote for you :)

You know, now I realized it's surprising how quickly Hillaree got adapted to doing pokémon battles "live", instead of controlling them through a screen with buttons and stuff.

But then again, she's Reka, right? She was from that world all along.

I tried to find anyhting to say about this page but couldn't find anything.

Oter than hilaree needing several noseflicks.

Bopz and Daisy are just so cheerfully oblivious!

Lockman, February 20th, 2010, 8:25 pm

Hey Vye, How did you get those little banners with links up in the description?

Sammi-the-Shadow-Magician, February 20th, 2010, 8:29 pm

Well, at least Hilaree caught a sane Pokemon! ^_^

Vye Brante, February 21st, 2010, 1:48 am

kay osse: Huh. Odd. I own the first few seasons and don't remember that ever happening.

And I didn't miss that comment. I just didn't respond to it. (For some reason.) I dunno, maybe I'll sign up for that at some point. I just don't know that Just Gotta has a faithful enough fan base to do that. My own polls only get maybe 30 votes every time.

Chelleromo: You can never accuse Hillaree of being unrealistic, yep. Glad you enjoyed it!

Joshua: Ha ha, didn't know it would go over so well.

the being: There are? That's a bit extreme. *Is one of them. Hee hee.*

But yeah, speaking from experience, being broke sucks.

Victorioso: A good observation, and one that is dead on. Well, for the most part. Hillaree isn't from that world, actually. Her home world is a dimension we haven't visited yet. But yeah, her knowledge of Pokemon battles stems from being Reka before.

Djoing: Ha ha, that's okay. At least you didn't have anything bad to say! (I hope.)

spudwalt: Yes they are. And they will probably stay that way.

Sammi-the-Shadow-Magician: She gets lucky that way every now and then.

Vye Brante, February 21st, 2010, 1:31 pm

Oops. Missed you in my replies, Lockman. Sorry.

To get banners up there like that, I edited the overall layout in the comic management. You have to use use HTML codes to do it.

Neko (Guest), February 22nd, 2010, 6:13 am

Pretty cool explanation for why Kuri lost. I actually have something similar cooked up for my PSC entry.

But Vye? I think your pages would gain a lot of clarity if you put tails on ALL of your speech bubbles. I know you have the little internal tails for people who are outside the frame, but sometimes there are people speaking inside the frame, who still don't get speech bubble tails.

Take panel 4 for instance. I know both bubbles are coming from Hillaree, but if I were a new reader I might interpret that as someone else speaking, while Hillaree listens with an annoyed look on her face. Heck, there could even be two speakers here. One starting the argument, and another agreeing with that person.

It pays to figure out some speech bubble conventions beforehand, and then stick with them throughout the comic, or people will get confused. :)

Vye Brante, February 22nd, 2010, 2:41 pm

Yeah . . . I've toyed with changing the world bubbles that way on and off for sometime now. Especially where I've started not using a tail on the bubbles in more situations now. It's becoming a bit confusing now and again, I bet.

The question of whether or not I should change it came up on the forums once some time ago. We decided more or less to just keep them as is. But things have changed a bit since then. I may bring up the question for everyone on the next page to see what they think. Maybe get more input that way.
