Crossroads Comics #125-Pokémon X Adventures

It’s Tuesday which means it’s time for Crossroads Comics!

This week we’re taking a look at Pokémon X Adventures! This comic is a Pokémon X run that features an entirely Pokémon cast, something you don’t see very often! It follows Pin-Pin the Chespin on his journey to challenge the Kalos Gym League and become champion! But this is far easier said than done, as any gym challenger knows. Thankfully, with his friends by his side, Pin-Pin is sure he can surpass any challenge thrown his way!

This is a cute little story that is really interesting since the Pokémon effectively replace the humans entirely, but the Pokémon still largely use the technology the humans had. This includes the Poké Flute, badges, and bags! In general it’s very interesting to see how these all Pokémon comics do their worldbuilding for settings like these since the absence of a trainer requires more creativity on why each Pokémon joins the team. Like Duchess the Furfrou! She’s actually got a really interesting backstory and motivation that not only gives her depth but also acts as a plot device needed to progress the story. All in all a nice job with that one.

This comic is authored by The Alolan PokeNerd. They have two actively updating comics at the moment, Pokémon X Adventures and PSMD: Lotus! I’d recommend checking out both since they’re very cute and a lot of fun to read. You can also check out their Art Dump as well if you want to show your support for them!

And without further ado, let’s check out the rest of this week’s comics!
