This is just a quick doodle, but I realized I never showed what Aouli and team actually DO on their journey.
They're filling the pokedex (as stated in a single sentence in like, Part 2.) by simply SEEING the pokemon. There's no pressure to catch them. Aouli catches the first one of each route because once pokemon realize she has pokeballs, they're too wise to let her catch them, so she and the team often just chat it up with the local wildlife (as long as they aren't attacked).
This was doodled after Ponyo to get me warmed up for some nuzlocke comicing tomorrow. Sorry for the silence! Exams and papers, a week of spring break to breath and study, and then more exams and papers. I just finished today! Hopefully too much won't jump me on Monday. Haha!
Happy Easter, for those who celebrate!
