Please read the previous chapters if you haven't already
It's a surprising short chapter, but so many things happen. You get introduced to a new character and you get learn a lot about Esmer's past, plus many more important events. I really had limited time trying to finish this, but I actually like this better than the previous chapter.
Also, since Gen 6 hasn't been released at the time of this posting, Sawsbuck is the only Pokemon that can learn Horn Leech (Smeargle doesn't count)
Oooh, interesting plot developments! Nothing better than a team of old enemies pulling together, and it was really neat to see Esmer as a younger man too, and his way of thinking. The way you use the pokemon moves is really inventive too, like the substitute and the psylock becoming Gus' pendant.
