Yay, you're back!! Anyway, like the above posters said, this chapter did seem very rushed, and I was surprised at how small it seemed, too. Too bad it couldn't have been longer, after we had to wait along time for this chapter to be posted.
I do think it's funny how you based Combusken and Slowbro off of Zuko and Iroh. I'm guessing Darkrai would be the Fire Lord, but who would Golduck be then?
Still don't know what the black shadowy figure is, but is a Legendary/Fifth Generation Pokemon?
Keep up the great work and I hope Chapter 4 is better, and more importantly longer! (which I guess would make it better....)
