vs. Team Rocket by himanuts vs. Team Rocket by himanuts
Though this took longer than I wanted, it didn't turn out the way I intended...probably because there was so much indecision behind it, as to what Rockets to include. This was also practice for the comic I want to do. I don't think it's to hard to figure out the concept, Rockets, Game Twerps and Rayquaza...yeah..>_>

I wanted to include Tyson and Iron Mask in this..but since I think there's no idea as to their fate in the show I don't know...I have some nice ideas for their roles in this project...and their interactions with the kids. <3

The Four Generals...well, I thought, why the hell not, IMO the more Rockets the better. I don't want this to feel as cheesy and easy as the show makes Ash's conquests over evil teams be. And since this is just basically a one shot mission comic thing that hopefully will also focus on character relations (not shipping, sorry), not really the disbanding of TR.. Also this is supposed to take place pre-DP.

So many ideas...and I can't write for the life of I'm stuck trying to express them on paper (Photoshop?)...and I'm still not skillful enough. Well..practice, practice, practice!

I don't like how some came out too..but that's because it's the first time I've drawn the Four Generals and Gio's new pet..I mean secretary.And first time I color most of this guys in PS. Also...I seem to have problems drawing Brendan..he always turns out retarded. XD Lucas..I admit, I did 'em half-assed.

It looks as though my reaction is a tad belated, given the date on this piece, but I simply must say that I find it absolutely awesome! It's like looking at some shining reflection of what the Pokemon anime SHOULD have been, with all the cool protagonists that were passed over in favour of Ash thrust to the forefront where they belong. And pitted against a satisfying assortment of anime and game villains, at that! Needless to say, I really like it~ ^^

Your mention of a story behind it intrigues me, as well...I fancy myself as something of a writer, having worked on a number of unpublished Pokemon fanfics at one point or another. Were I not buried in projects of my own, I'd probably offer to help with your apparent writing troubles.

Your reaction is appreciated, very much. That is the whole idea behind this, to show what the anime should had been, to show all the opportunities missed and those that can still be attained.

I actually wanted to search for a writer when (if?) I started uploading comic pages for this project since well I'm not much of a writer myself.

But as of now, I don't know when I'll start this, I too have other projects at hand and the lack of my own computer and scanner have made drawing pictures and uploading them impossible for me at the moment.

Still, thanks so much for your comment, makes me want to continue to pursue this task. :)

You are most welcome, friend! It was my pleasure; I'm always happy to comment on good art, especially with a premise behind it that I so wholeheartedly agree with. Ash really has kinda overstayed his welcome, hasn't he? XD It seems it's been left to enterprising fans like ourselves to give the other protagonists their dues.

Did you now? Funny thing; I rethought some of the stuff I said yesterday and realised that I'm really not quite as "buried" as I had initially thought, having really only some random request stories from a friend and a stalled collaborative project on my hands at this moment. If your situation with your own piled-up projects and computer problems improved, I think I would definitely offer my creative support! ^^

Still, all the same, you're welcome; I'm glad I was able to offer what inspiration I could through my comment. Keep up the good work!

Yes! He has, I like him, but he has been dragged on long enough. And that's exactly how I see it with the game kids, leave it to us to interpret their roles in the animeverse..since the writers haven't done such a good job. That whole GSC Heroes mess...ugh. >.<

And that's awesome, I would really appreciate your help. Hell if I my own computer at the moment I would postpone some of my other projects to get this one going atleast a bit.

Again, thanks so much.
