Since I'm sure you're all wondering: Yes, of course I'm carefully keeping track of the phase of the moon in this comic. What kind of cheap hack do you take me for?

My game corner in this page, however, is meant to be more like a North American arcade. I put a Sawsbuck on the 25-PokéYen coins on this page in order to make them look like the Canadian quarter, since that's what I associate with arcade games, but in reflection it would probably have made more sense to use some animal from Hoenn....
