there’s something endlessly hilarious to me about the phrase “hotly debated” in an academic context. like i just picture a bunch of nerds at podiums & one’s like “of course there was a paleolithic bear cult in Northern Eurasia” and another one just looks him in the eye and says “i’ll kill you in real life, kevin”
people who think they’re too cool for pokemon baffle me. you think you’re cooler than turtwig? huh? you think you’re fucking better than turtwig? look at me in the eye . you think you are better than turtwig? that you’re too cool for them??? you’re a coward and know nothing .
Act 3 is when it starts getting good during your first read
The pesterlogs are long, but they’re important
The Midnight Crew intermission is also important, but not enjoyable the first time you read it, especially if you have trouble following circular time travel plots. It’s much funnier the second time around, I promise
The Exiles are not enjoyable the first time. They grow on you, don’t worry (and they’re funnier during Read #2)
When you reach Act 5 and meet the trolls, you may become irrationally angry that you just got used to the 4 kids and now you have to meet and like 12 more characters? Fuck this and fuck you Hussie I’m not reading this comic anymore these feelings are normal and expected
Take your time with the interactive games, they’re full of easter eggs that are plot relevant
