cheren's speech is well worded though I feel perhaps the presentation was a bit clustered. some sort of visual even if it was simple to go along with open areas around what he's saying could help, or a bit more spacing out of it. by the thumbnail alone I can see a large cluster of that text without visuals going with it, it gets a bit too close to wall of text or literature as opposed to using the art to portray half of the tale. your detail to scenery always impresses me and I very much appreciate the panels that just show off a new location without any major text in them to help clarify the area with the art and show off the good layout and detail you worked out on.
Ghe-cis: Careful, you idiot! I said steal her pokemon not kill them! Grunt: [lifts hat, revealing that he's crosseyed] Sorry, sir! I'm doing my best! Ghe-cis: ... Who made that man a grunt? Major Grunt: I did, sir. He's my cousin. Ghe-cis: [to N] Who is he? N: He's an Asshole, father. Ghe-cis: I know that! What's his name? N: That is his name, father. Asshole, Major Asshole. Ghe-cis: ... And his cousin? N: He's an asshole too. Grunt's mate, First Class, Philip Asshole. Ghe-cis: How many assholes have we got on this ship, anyhow? Everyone:Yo Ghe-cis: I knew it, I'm surrounded by assholes... Keep stealing, assholes!
In my opinion I believe that people should be able to talk normally to all physic type Pokemon, due to how physic Pokemon can manipulate the mind, and it seems most Pokemon understand human speech, but are unable to speak it, with a few exceptions of course.
Now the next question is, who will replace Jordan? (not to sound like an asshole, I think it's sad that Jordan died, but all pokemon that die in a nuzlocke must be replaced) I was thinking about Jasper the Joltik.
