Mimikyu is one of the new creatures that will be appearing in the upcoming Pokemon Sun and Moon. I'm late to the party in that I drew this like two weeks ago after hundreds of other people already did fanart, and even later because I chose to hold onto it so I could post it during my recovery. But here we are, I'm finally posting this and showing my overwhelming love for the slightly creepy, sad, and incredibly adorable new Pokemon.

For those of you who don't know, Mimikyu is a Fairy/Ghost type that just wants to be loved. So it hides itself inside twenty year old Pikachu merchandise, because it wants to be popular like Pikachu. Everything about this hooked me right away. Its design. Its story. I haven't even been able to see it in action as it comes from a game that isn't out yet, but this has very quickly become one of my very favorites.

So I drew Mimikyu... being appreciated like it wants (with the new trainer girl [minus the stupid hat] offering it a Pokepuff). It deserves it.

Congrats on the surgery Jocelyn, and on beating cancer too!

I just discovered Rain yesterday afternoon and have binge-read all 862 episodes in 24 hours. Looking forward to seeing more.

Thank you for your work, it's been truly inspiring.

I just learned tonight that a popular girl name in Thai is "Fon" (pronounced like fawn), which means Rain. Now how cool is that!

I was wondering why people where posting all kinds of art and fan fiction about this creepy/cute thing. I am going to have to get myself the latest Nintendo DS and The new pokemon game, the last game I played was Emerald and that is over 10 years old now. But with pokemon go getting me back into pokemon I need to play the newest game ... my dream dog pokemon team will become a reality

Just the realization that there really *is* twenty year old Pikachu merch makes me feel old.

If I decide to not get the surgery I'm i still a girl?
Kailee 1st Aug 2016, 3:38 PM edit delete reply
Yes, you absolutely are. Everyone is different.

You are whatever you say you are. It's not up to me or anyone else. Just you. Not everyone gets the surgery for one reason or another, and that shouldn't be held over them. If you want to go for the surgery, make sure it's something you want for you. But don't sweat whether or not you can identify yourself a certain way ONLY if you have the surgery. You can identify yourself however you want regardless.

I was a woman pre-op, and I'm a woman post-op. My surgery didn't change that. It did things for me on a personal level that I struggle to put into words, but I didn't need it in order to be able to call myself female.

Thirding this. Look, your identity and how you see yourself are all that matters when determining who you are. That means you're a girl, and I'm a girl, and Jocelyn is a girl. You and your identity are valid. Period.

Hullo. You mentioned being open to fan art earlier, Jocelyn, but I'm afraid that I don't own any kind of social media to speak of. I've been meaning to make a Deviantart account, but I'm too lazy. Do you have an email or some other way of reaching you so that I can send you my drawing once it's complete?
AmbiguousMouse 2nd Aug 2016, 6:36 AM edit delete reply
I don't know Jocelyn's email, but I wanted to chime in that I'm amazed at your ability to create art while being too lazy to create an account on a website. Not sarcasm/judgment - actually impressed, that means either an astonishing aversion to signup forms or an applause-worthy dedication to art in spite of general laziness.
Stankard Toohy 2nd Aug 2016, 12:31 PM edit delete reply
To be honest, it's kind of both. Art has always been a part of my life. I've been doing sequential since middle school, and selling my paintings since I was 12. But I'm also a bit of a procrastinator. Signing up for something online is boring. I'd rather just get to the point, so I turn around and start drawing again.

Well I binge read all of "Rain" and now just ordered it. ****. It's some mighty great work.

I've read through 5 years of comics in 5 days... Why did I have to read so fast.

You do as we all do... wait for the best comic ever to be updated

Hey, I just wanted to leave some encouragement and let you know how much I have enjoyed reading everything so far. I discovered Rain this weekend and have read the whole lot over a day. It has completely changed my outlook on life and that's amazing. Thanks for your hard work and well crafted story :) I look forward to reading more!

I binge-read thru all episodes over last weekend.... now I'm going thru them again, more slowly and trying to absorb the details I missed the first time thru.

This story needs to be made into a movie. It really does. I think society is finally ready, and needs to see such a movie as this story.
SuchaFawfulGuy 4th Aug 2016, 2:58 PM edit delete reply
I agree with you Ruth, I even did the same and binged through all comics last weekend then immediately recommended them to my friend. A movie would be nice, but it will probably never happen, but I hope it does! It would be nice to see Rain getting promoted

I was actually thinking it would be better as a tv show. That way it wouldn't get cut up to fit into a two hour film. I honnestly have a few voice actors in mind and everything.
Ruth 5th Aug 2016, 1:30 AM edit delete reply
A pilot movie followed up by a series would be very cool too
Ruth 5th Aug 2016, 2:02 AM edit delete reply
...but that's up to Jocelyn to decide, not us.
Ruth 5th Aug 2016, 2:07 AM edit delete reply
... btw, Jocelyn thank you so very much for your creativity. It's freed me in a way that I don't even yet understand myself.

I was just wondering, when do you update?
Jocelyn 5th Aug 2016, 12:45 AM edit delete reply

@Sky Beams

At the moment? Whenever the mood strikes me.

I just had surgery last week, so I'm going to be on hiatus for a little while (basically until it no longer hurts to sit in my computer chair). I did pre-draw a couple things, so maybe I'll post again soon. But regular pages won't be back for a while.

But when things DO get back to normal (because they WILL get back to normal), I post every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. ^_^
Sky Beams 7th Aug 2016, 10:06 PM edit delete reply
Ok, thanks so much! I hope you get better soon! Maybe when I'm older I'll buy you a really fluffy chair. With Mimikyu on it! X3
Stankard Toohy 5th Aug 2016, 7:36 PM edit delete reply
Jocelyn, I didn't really see a way for me to send you my fan art, so I just had to be responsible for a change and make that Deviantart account I've been meaning to get around to for over a year now. Anyhoo, here it is (sorry if it doesn't look all that great; I'm still teaching myself digital art, and it's on a really bad program).

You're selling yourself short! I really like it! And I imagine Jocelyn will too ^-^
Stankard Toohy 5th Aug 2016, 9:13 PM edit delete reply
I've only ever worked with traditional, so it's been a weird transition. There are dozens of errors with proportions, line work, and shading that I just can't fix because I'm not as experienced with it yet. The fact that the program doesn't have any line making tools and doesn't have many layers doesn't help much. Hopefully I can fix that all up in time. Hearing that you like it despite all its problems really means a lot to me. Thank you kindly.

I'm so happy for you! I just read every page of your comic in the last 4 days and ordered all 3 of your books, I've never had a comic make me cry and laugh so much im still mad about rains hair darnit!
Kunoichi 7th Aug 2016, 4:27 PM edit delete reply
