Quite simply, well done with this. The interactive battes are a very nice touch, and the voice acting is still very well performed, even though the cast was drastically cut since last time. Love how the story is progressing so far as well, it's a much darker take on the Pokemon series which is normally very corny and kiddy, yet it doesn't take itself too seriously. It really makes me want to crack out the Gameboy and play the games. I noticed the plug for Eastbeast's Shyguy Flash too. I've seen the beta and think you guys did very well with that too.
As for the negatives (don't worry, there ain't much) I still feel that some of the animated poses of the Pokemon during battles are a bit jumpy (Houndour for example). As for the line art you made during the credits, could I suggest you stay clear of gradients? Sometimes you can get away with them with backgrounds etc, but I just feel for characters (especially anime style) they need to be shaded manually otherwise they look out of place. Takes a little more time, but the end result looks that much better.
All in all though that's all I could find wrong with this. Well done on Daily 4th, I'm just glad there are still some good sprite flashes left out there. Good stuff. :>
I didn't do the sprites for the Pokemon in battle, so I have to take what I can get. Personally, I like the animated ones versus using a static picture, but some of them have 100+ frames of animation so it's hard to manually repair them totally.
As far as the gradients, for some reason when I converted the ending from 720 to 852 the gradients got all messed up. I thought I had fixed them, but maybe I missed some? Either way, I'm still not that great an artist so my shading may look worse then the gradients.
I like this series, i really do but the few things that bug me is that TJ seems a little bit of a know it all and seems to almost lack any emotions, the "know it all" could be summed up to him actually doing all this before but the emotion thing just bugs me, especially in the next episode. I would have punched the b*tch if she did that to me.
Side note: I also noticed that in the ending theme thing you put at the end of each of the more recent episodes, in the last episode at the last scene or picture, were it shows the whole team together there was a seadra but not in any other of the episodes
Teejay is good at self-restraint. In mainstream shows, stoic characters usually only play support roles but in this case, he's the main character.
Teejay will get a Seadra, but later. I decided to add them as he gets them to the final credits picture.
awesome story, my only complaint is more emotion on the voice actor pls
Pretty good episode. KEEP MAKING MORE
Once again, nice job! My only problem is that you keep mispronouncning Gardevoir. It's GAR-devoir, not Garde-VOIR... sorry, just a nitpick!
