Bianca has accepted her truth, the Pokemon have determined themselves, while Pi moves forward—or actually, got kidnapped.

Team Plasma, they ruin EVERYTHING.

Also, it’s awkward how in BW2 they revealed that Shadow Triads’ character design is so much different from what the fans guessed from the sprite. Or the manga. If only they released their full-body design a lot sooner!

I know right? It's always team plasma and the shadow triad that get in the way, I hate them! Dx

The triad always freaked me out. Every five seconds, a kidnapping X3

People, stop being silly and talking badly about the best villainous characters in Pokemon universe. Elusive, mysterious ninjas are always cool and Shadow Triad is no exception. In BW they didn't even attempt to fight you, they just KNEW they had you in their grasp either way, you could not resist. Their dedication to Ghetsis is something else too.
And they made Brycen look so much more awesome when he was the only person able to sense their presence.

But anyway, 'bout the update. Percival. Enough said.

Actually no, not nearly enough. All this time, I haven't been able to really bring myself to like Pea. Not your fault, Piyo, seeing as he was nominated for the best Pokemon - it's just my preferences (Snivy line being my least favourite of the three starters also doesn't help but whatever). With the starters, people mostly tend to go either the always-supporter way or the "too good for you"-jerk way. Nothing wrong with that, I guess, but Pea's confidence doesn't really make him anything that interesting for me. He's always sure of himself and even if he has some trouble, he pulls through and comes out even more confident. It's hard for me to feel invested. But now that he was immobilized with the fear of Zekrom and discovered he just might not be invincible, he finally became a character for me. I'm looking forward to see how this adventure will change him.

And I must have mentioned it before already, but your Bianca is just the most adorable thing!

@eworm: tl;dr

Reply pipipipi, February 12th, 2013, 7:42 am

Let me just say that tl;dr comments are always very, very welcomed. I read them all! (even though I almost never reply)

@eworm: When you put it that way, I can see why you couldn't bring yourself to like him. XD Glad to hear that you like him more, now!

Dear diary, today I learned a new Internet "word" thing.

Personally I would love to get only tl;dr comments (meaning actual comments pretty much). I mean a "Like it" is always nice to see, but a true feedback is worth ten of those.
>totally not tricking you into checking out my own Nuzlocke comic (¬‿¬)

Percival! I Died! I love Pea's snark and sarcasm, and Otto seems so laid back. It's a nice mix.

Pi: I NEED AN ADULT!!!!!!

Ninjas: We are adults

Pi: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

@Ginchiyo: Your Gallade can't save you now! You need to beat the game before you can get your Pokemon form older games. Except if you have a friend import it and trade it to you, but really, that's just cheating.

@Muddykip64: ooooooooookay, then I'll let my Cincino kick their asses

Pi used pepper spray on the pervert! It's super effective! Pi hit the perverted in the crotch! It's a super effective critical hit! The perverted fainted. Pi ran away anyway.

Aw. Bianca's one of my favorite characters.

Also, this doesn't look good for our heroine!

I realized after typing that how it relates to the context of the page.

tl;dr comments @eworm: I can understand that a meaty, substantive comment can be of more worth than many simple "Liked it"s. However, as far as I can figure, it is one thing for a person to know THAT he likes a story, while it is another for a person to know WHY he likes it.

To use your own comment as an example, the common person would feel that Pea/Percival was made more relatable and would simply comment to that effect (e.g., "I liked the way you made Percival more real."). However, it takes a good deal of thought, if not insight into your own psyche or into what makes a good piece of fiction, to figure out WHY the reader perceives Percival as more relatable: "But now that he was immobilized with the fear of Zekrom and discovered he just might not be invincible, he finally became a character for me."

You are one of a rare breed, eworm.

P.S.: At the very least, be happy that you are not getting "Hate it" comments. It is a lot more common to get long negative comments than positive ones. Regardless of how much brainpower the common commentator is usually willing to expend, it will be expended if he perceives that he wasted his time reading a piece of trash. Even a commentator who would not take the time to say "Like it" to something he likes is likely to say "Hate it" to something he hates. As far as comments are concerned, no news is good news (as long as it is accompanied by a steady stream of readers)!

Wait a sec... Did Bianca just take the Light Stone from Pi?

Reply pipipipi, February 17th, 2013, 10:56 am

@Shawn @eworm: have to agree with Shawn here. I myself don't leave many that kind of comments very often... as proven by this reply.

Also, no, Bianca didn't take the Light Stone from Pi, she just put it aside. I admit I should've shown that more clearly, though.

@pipipipi: Thanks for clearing that up!

@pipipipi: Haha, just found your comic "MythoLoL" (Wondering how I didn't find it earlier actually) and I found it amusing. I wonder if it'd ever get another update? Haha.

Though, not if it'll slow the updates HERE...

Shadow Triad Yeah, I was always confused when I look at the sprites for the Shadow Triad. Even the Pokemon Special manga made their hair short, even though their hair is much longer and their sprites look the same.
