Don't fret over the sudden ending, this is only the FIRST HALF of the set. It ended up being extremely long because I had too much I wanted to put into it. Oh, well.
Also, fair warning, I'm not a doctor, so if any of the medical terminology or time frames are off, consider it "Pokemon logic" and let me be. I was sick with the flu while working on this, so eh. That's also my excuse for why the beginning portions look so non-descriptive. You can clearly see where I was starting to feel better; the art took a quality jump
This half is the "sad" half. Arguments, misinterpretations, tears, and angst all around. Tepi's becoming a surly teenager, heh heh heh. Vast has one of his thoughtless moments again and hurts Crystal's feelings. Chikoru has never been this confused before in his life. Fright sheds unmanly tears but finally feels like part of the team, since everyone's forgiven him (not that they ever blamed him). He's growing up, mentally. And Ampi apparently has ADHD.
Tepi OHKO'd my catch for Route 35 thanks to a magical crit (so no Nidoking for me, wah), then again, extrasensory was not the best move to use against a poison type.
I also found the TM for Payback on this route and taught it to Vast (that didn't make it in for reasons). None of the trainers on this route are worth mentioning either.
The other half will be done either late late LATE tonight or tomorrow sometime.
