Author commentary

Veronica: Definitely a breath of fresh air from the unending angst in the last comic.. also this was drawn during the time I was hooked on Pokemon Emerald and I began thinking about what kinda Pokemon the characters should be.. so yeah. Lily is a Sheimi.. and information on Sheimi’s can be seen here. A hedgehog that is also a Legendary Pokemon.. hence why Lily is totally honored.. also why Yashy and the others pelt Lily with “master balls”.. since Sheimis are.. well.. you can only get one XD

For those who don’t understand the reference to Missingnos and multiple master balls, here’s an explanation to it. That’s why Yashy was swimming along the edge of the pond.. and Missingno are meant to glitch your Hall of Fame up.. which is symbolised with the leeches on her back.. also why they had so many “Master balls”.. they duplicated it.

I hope Lucy knows not to yank the leeches off… if you don’t coax them off on their own, you get big-time bleeding. The way to get a leech to detach is heat. Anyone who’s played MGS3 should already know that, of course. ^^

I thought it was Shaymin, but what do I know?* Also, I thought it was Mssingno, not Missingno, because it’s short for Missing Number (No.), but again, what do I know?** Also, you can clone Pokemon and Items with the glitch near the end of the game or something… Which is easier to obtain than Mssingno…

*What do the hundreds of Pokedexes know?
**What does the one M(i)ssingno guide I looked at know?
