Okay, I really loved all the suggestions people gave last year, and did consider quite a few of them, but between the phenomenon of Pokemon Go, the rush of the 20-Year Anniversary, and the massive hype behind Pokemon Sun/Moon, there were really no other options this year. We had to do a Pokemon picture.

So yeah, Jake as Lance, with the various kids forming the six members of a Pokemon team. ^^ We got Jenny as Lopunny, Val as Lucario, Nicky as Inkay, Lore as Jangmo-O, Andy as Ash-Greninja, and Grant as Articuno. There was a lot of discussion for some of the kids; In particular considered a bunch of stuff about Lore, like Keldeo, Gible, and Dragonite. Kinda settled on Jangmo-O to show the hype on Sun/Moon, plus Dragon/Fighting is a really good type for Lore. ^^ Plus with my personality, I friggin' HAD to have a Dragon on the team.

Got a lot of other options saved for the years coming up. Can you guys believe we've only done this four times? Feels like WAY more. ^^ Other options we have taken down for the years to come are... Hmm... Should I come out with it? Did kinda say we'd be doing Pokemon this year in the last picture...

These fillers are probably going to be weird after the next chapter given we'll have, essentially, a canon set of Halloween costumes. But hey, still very fun to do!

Yeah, this one took a little brainstroming to figure out who got what. Kind of funny how slanted it came out on the gens really - should've been able to get in one character from each gen with seven of them, but instead got two Gen 6 - though Ash Greninja's arguably Gen 7, the one Gen 7, two Gen 1, and two Gen 4.

But yeah, we're very pumped for Pokemon and this seemed like a natural choice for the filler given what the year's been like and that Sun & Moon are under three weeks away. Do hope everyone enjoys!
