Wonder if Victini's psychic powers are working any better than MewTwo's at the moment?

Jen, NEVER SAY THINGS LIKE THAT

Frig.

Frig frig friggity frig frig.

I...*now what do we do*?!

Hopefully, as @Bwob said, her psychic powers aren't really working...she does seem to be more bummed out than ready for a fight, but then, she might not have seen Jen yet.

Is that the real good Victini or the same as the villain? We'll never know till' next part!

Oh Christ he's here.
Jen being mostly a support pokemon doesn't exactly help either, the typings too.

Well, Victini doesn't seem to look too eager to fight, but who knows what's under his V-shaped ears

Well played..

Welp, Victini seems busted and injured... Jen's only ally could not come close (Aka Gengar) and Mewtwo is near the black hole (below)

It's the FINAL COUNT DOWN. Will Victini let her pass or burn Jen into smithereens..
Tune in next week to know the outcome.

Victini may not be able to use psychic abilities right now, but she can still use fire type attacks. And unfortunately, if V-create was strong enough to 1-hit-KO Mewtwo, I'd say it's strong enough to kill someone like Jen at least. It's not even a contest, if they fight one on one, then Jen is dead on the first move, especially when Victini's speed stats are boosted by her being a shadow pokemon.

It might be just me but I almost see a little bit of smugness in Victini's face in that last panel.

That, I don't like. I really don't like. Makes me think she's still up to something.

Of course... who knows. It's impossible to shadowfy a dead world. Maybe she'll help Jen fix the world... and then start the whole thing over again... except take care to bump off all those pesky would-be heroes first.

...Well at least Victini wasn't camping in a corner ready to Flare Blitz somebody. If she can even do such a move in this distortion of Buried Relic.

WHY HELLO THERE VICTINI

Victini looks like it might not want to fight. Maybe it's regretting stuff?

Never easy this close to the end game.

Did you have fun victini? He looks like he had a lot of fun

Well crap.

jen why did you have to say its not that hard
you just jinxed yourself because of it

posted by Guest on April 13th, 2018, 8:34 am



  Not as it seems

I sense a Big Revealing Moment coming up - don't actually think the two are going to fight. This'll be intersting, in any event.

Ooooooooh snap almost forgot about them; however they don't seem to be there to fight; guess we'll see!

  1st comment

This is it Jen. This is your moment to shine!

Psychic powers don't work here, and I don't think Victini wanted the creation engine busted in the first place, I contest that this is what Victini wanted to build, no she's into corruption of things, not devastatingly barren void. Of course, once it's restored and with it, reality, she will be something to contend with them for control of the now open chamber so. uh. Tricky situation.

But here and now, Victini can be made to listen. And though the creation engine is vital, it still can wait a BIT. No reason not to try and get Victini to see reason and hope. Maybe the events here were enough to show her perspective. They were all worked up to stop her from destroying that hope and light.

Was she even going to keep the world like that though?

Oh no.

OK but I think this is going to be really cool???
The others seem to have had their abilities messed right up, so physical is the way to go in a fight. Victini vs. Jen's Tae Kwon Do? I like the look of this.

Not surprised

Called it! I KNEW Victini was gonna pop up again!

posted by Lightseed on April 13th, 2018, 1:22 pm



 

I dont think this empty waste space of a dominion is living up at all to victini's desires.

IT'S HER

posted by Shiftershape on April 13th, 2018, 3:54 pm





 

While I'm sure that's still the XD-003 Victini, I'm also pretty sure she's realized she has limited access to any powers. Mewtwo cannot manifest his raw psionic might, Gengar can't keep his corporeal form, and we don't even know where the rest of the party is; there's every likelihood that the vast majority, if not all, of Victini's fire-power (literal and metaphorical) is useless too. And why isn't this really affecting Jen? Her power was never related to her being a pokemon; she took to support skills well, and had a move or two for defending herself, but her true power hasn't been tied to being a pokemon, so having her pokemon-given abilities stripped isn't all that effective.

Considering victini sat in that spot the entire page, I don’t think it will do anything too harmful to Jen...hopefully. To me, it just looks done, and petulant.

  Expect the Unexpected

At this point, there isn't much Victini can do, but I'm still wondering if something random is going to happen. :'>

Victini: "Yo Jen, Sup?"

Just wait until page 666... it's coming soon now. just... (let's see here... hmmm... [coundts to 666 from 658, holding out one finger every time he counts up, then counts the fingers] aaaand~) nine! Nine pages away from page 666.

Well hopefully Victini isn't in the mood to murder the tiny adorable Jen and if Victini is in a murdery mood then lets hope someone comes last second to assist. Because, Jen doesn't stand a chance without some help XD.

Will victini hurt jen while he is hurt

I don't know if victini is a boy

BUT FIND OUT IN THE NEXT PAGE

I imagine if this was a game, suddenly the music stops, and the wind blows.

@Succ Victini used she, but technically genderless.

posted by Guest on April 14th, 2018, 8:39 am





 

Prediction: here is where victini becomes a good guy or at least regrets his actions.

  Absolutely fantastic

I just found this comic today and read all 657 pages in one day. Is that good or bad?

posted by Daniel (Guest) on April 14th, 2018, 4:29 pm



 

@Daniel(Guest), maybe both.

And it just got harder.

  This is amazing

This has been a super amazing webcomic --- I started yesterday and just got to this last page. It's been AMAZING --- I love the artwork, the character development, the combinations of things. I am really invested, so please, please finish, and thank you so much for what you've brought us so far.

Again, while Legendary Pokemon are classified as Genderless, those conventions aren't necessarily true at all. The reason the games show legendaries as having no gender is because pokemon scientists can't get close enough to study them most of the time (they aren't called legendary pokemon for no reason, they are supposed to be extremely elusive) and also because their breeding habits are entirely unknown. No pokemon in the anime, games, or manga are gender-less, except Ditto... I mean for crying out loud, Grimer and Muk have Genders, and nothing about that makes any sense at all, so yeah, all pokemon have genders even when the games say they don't.

Just because pokemon has been all around terrible at portraying genders and ...explaining where eggs come from (Hint hint, they don't magically spawn out of thin air, that's just GameFreak going clear out of their way to avoid the subject). The point is, legendaries have genders, even when you think they don't, they do. Mew is a girl by the way, don't ask me how I know, I just do okay? (She's pink)

Sorry about that guys, I didn't mean to go on a rant. It's just the whole genderless thing sometimes drives me up a wall. (I have problems, I know.)

@guest According to your logic on mew being a girl because they are "pink" that would mean that all pink Pokemon can't be boys. There are undoubtably a lot of male Audino's and Chansey's etc etc so just because Mew is pink doesn't mean its a girl.

posted by Guest on April 16th, 2018, 10:17 am



 

@guest : Victini and Celebi used 'she' while Darkrai and Mewtwo used 'he' simply because the author doesn't want to use 'it' as a pronouns in this comic. I think Sulfurbunny mentioned it in deviantart site, CMIIW.

At the anon guests: In the main series, Legendary and Mythical Pokemon don't have gender as a gameplay reason to keep players from like breeding 70 Mewtwos and breaking the meta game. Anime and manga have leeway in giving these Legendary and Mythical Pokemon genders or keeping them genderless.

HOWEVER, in the PMD world, all Pokemon have genders (except when specified otherwise like non-transformed Ditto, Voltorb/Electrode, etc.). Back during Rescue Team, the genders were left out of the gameplay, but several Pokemon had their genders confirmed like Latios and Latias for example. They're confirmed male and female respectively.

Starting in the Explorers games, genders were returned to gameplay to give the move Attract a much needed nerfing from Rescue Team. While the Legendaries and Mythicals didn't have genders to exploit in boss battles, some of them had their genders confirmed in supplemental materials.

Long story short: Legendaries and Mythicals only have confirmed genders when stated in the PMD games and supplemental materials. Otherwise they're genderless.

This does raise some conflicts as for example VF's Victini is female, but Gates to Infinity's Victini is male. Though to be fair: VF started when the Explorers games were the most recent PMD games out. Gates to Infinity and like Super Mystery Dungeon didn't exist yet on 3DS.

Ehh

Without powers I'm not even sure a Victini could fly with those sad little butt wings let alone cause a problem.

I'm not expecting a fight, maybe trickery, maybe shes not infected with darkness as much now.

...But if they did Jens gotta be way stronger by size alone. Not sure if the Space Globe works in this realm.

Victini looks.... defeated.

She now only lives in a broken world she doesn't want to be in.
