Exposition Comic: The Event by Xyliax Exposition Comic: The Event by Xyliax
I want to get some of the major story-related comics from my Ask Melon and Aegislash blog onto dA. I decided to start with this one, because it helps introduce the setting.


Before The Event:
Pokemon used to be energy based. They could convert energy into attacks called "moves". They could also change form through a sudden burst of energy called "evolution".
Unfortunately, humans invented the Pokeball and PC. These devices could forcibly change pokemon into energy and store them.

The Event:
Pokemon suddenly have become physical beings. They can no longer use moves (however they still retain any physical abilities they would naturally have. ex) flying types can still fly). Evolution no longer happens instantly, but over weeks or even months.

Tragically, any pokemon who were in Pokeballs or in the PC when the Event happened are trapped. Scientists on both sides are working to free these pokemon, but there's been no success.

Many pokemon blamed the humans, if not for the Event itself, the trapping of pokemon inside pokeballs and PCs in the first place. A rebellion started, lead by Ms. Delphox. (the delphox who is actually featured in the comic above).

Are the humans still trying to rescue the Pokemon trapped in the PCs? What will happen to the trainers that pour their love and devotion into their partners? Does a mutual bond between Pokemon and trainer still exist in this world?

This is a really good comic! Can't wait to see more!

boths sides, human and pokemon, are trying to rescue the pokemon lost in the PCs.

Many pokemon and their former trainers are still close, but it depends on the situation. There are still communities where pokemon and humans still work and live together.

As far as "trainer-pokemon bonds" go.... well. This story takes a more realistic and maybe darker perspective on that. Pokemon in this world could be captured, owned, and traded without their consent. And in that case, either the pokemon became complacent with their captivity, or they never liked their trainer. 
Pokemon who CHOSE to be captured obviously are more likely to form a bond with their trainer. but even then, only the trainer had the power to release the pokemon.
