Pokemon: Team Medley
Lack of updates / Blog by RioBlitzle
June 4th, 2018, 7:35 am
As a sort of apology for lack of updates and a commemoration of me nearing 100+ fans, I've decided to open a blog for Team Medley, which functions as an askblog, and will hold information about activity, and even extra content. I know I held a poll and an overwhelming majority wanted cameos over a blog, but they're going to take a while- I don't really have much scenes I could feature cameos in until about Chapter 4, and you've seen how long it's taking me to get through Chapter 1. I still intend on doing the cameos but they could even take years for me to get around to, so I'm opening the blog anyways.

Characters who have been introduced in-comic are available for asks on the blog (characters who have been mentioned but not introduced e.g Paige will not be available). I will not answer anything potentially spoiler-y, obviously. Blog is semi-canon (often canon information but the characters are not canonically answering these, if that makes any sense?). Questions not addressed to a character will be assumed to be for me. Don't worry if you don't have a Tumblr account- you can still ask questions anonymously.

tl;dr- I've opened a comic blog to make up for the lack of updates and how late the cameos will appear, I don't know when the next update is, please bear with me.

Cameo Call (50+ Fans) by RioBlitzle
March 29th, 2018, 8:28 am
dude 6 more fans and thisll be the most ive ever had on any webcomic

Okay, so since it won the poll by a landslide, we're doing cameos! Here are the rules, please read them:

-Post a comment on this news post with your character(s). You should include the following: Name, gender, species, and of course, a reference.
If commenting is a problem for some reason, feel free to shoot me a PM instead though.

-You are allowed to enter maximum of two characters- however, I'll probably only include one. You should probably clearly indicate which one you'd rather see in the cameo. I'm more likely to feature both characters if you are a friend or if I am familiar with your comic/askblog/whatever. (Also, if you include two characters, please make sure they are two characters who should actually interact! If I decide to feature two characters from the same person, and I don't know the characters well, I'll probably draw them chatting away and acting like friends. Don't pick two who are sworn enemies or something!)

-This should probably go without saying, but pokemon characters only, please!

-No legendaries. Shinies are okay but I'd rather if they weren't, as I need to keep shiny numbers down- I can't have too many shiny Pokemon running around, they're supposed to be rare! Don't enter fakemon either, or, say, a Missingno.

-Please don't enter designs that are too strange or over the top. The design still needs to fit into the universe of my world. If your Pokemon is an odd colour or is otherwise just a little ridiculous (e.g a green vulpix, or an eevee with wings) I won't include them. Simpler designs will be favoured.

-Only users can ask for cameos, not guests.

With that done and said, thank you very much, feel free to leave comments now!
poll for 50+ fans (..again) by RioBlitzle
March 25th, 2018, 6:05 am
hey uh you may remember this news post ( http://teammedley.smackjeeves.com/news-archive/posts/149938/future-milestone-poll-please-vote/ ) where i held a poll to see what i'd do when i got to 50 fans, and the two things which were drawn to win were an askblog and for me to open cameos, and we're only 3 off from 50 fans now yeet
so anyways, here we go again https://www.strawpoll.me/15357484

-Both of these are technically for the long term because right now we only know about three characters (only one of which is one of the "main" characters), and sadly I'm not at a place in the comic that would allow for much cameos yet!
-The askblog would be on Tumblr and would also double as a place where I'd put 'extra' art and info- sketches, concept work, and shitposts. Would be semi-canon (most answers would be canon but thered be some non-canon shenanigans going on) and answers would be coloured sketches rather than lined work.
-Cameos would appear in about a chapter or two, and I'd have to put several rules in place when accepting them
-I'm probably going to end up doing both of these at some point but I don't have the energy to do both rn and would rather just one of these options. If it comes to another draw i'll flip a coin.

sorry ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ no one cares about this comic anyways im sure you wont mind waiting another undetermined period of time while i get caught up on other shit
FUTURE MILESTONE POLL- please vote!! by RioBlitzle
November 2nd, 2017, 11:41 am
Whats up lads, I am making this WAY in advance, but I'd like to get this out of the way in case i actually DO hit 50 fans at some point and miss it

So, what am I going to do to celebrate this milestone when it comes around (It's probably never going to come around because I never have motivation to work on pages but anyways)? I'm leaving it open for YOU GUYS to decide!


A little explanation for each option:
-New Cover Page: As it says on the tin! I'll draw a new cover for the comic. This could come with the added bonus of drawing in extra fans which could give me extra motivation and therefore give you guys more pages, I guess? Also will look pretty

-Official Discord Server: OK, so I know I'm stealing this idea from more popular Pokemon webcomics (cough LoS cough) (I'm sorry Shadow), but hey, Discord server! Would have various channels, give you guys a place to talk, and I have somewhere to spam concept art and shitposts.

-Askblog: Would be sketch-based, and non-canon (well, you know, the answers would be genuine but shitposty shenanigans wouldn't be). Would give you guys more access to l o r e and world and character building.

-Character Page: Would update overtime as characters are introduced- would have official references and basic and additional information about the characters

-Cameos open: Do you want your character to appear in the background of the webcomic in future? Well, if this option wins, they can! I might take a while to get around to it though- you'd have to wait a little while until I actually need characters for crowds!

-Contest: I'm not expecting this to win, but just in case some of you guys really like contests?? Send in fanart or something, someone wins and they get a prize in the form of arttt

-In-Character Twitter Account: I would open and operate a Twitter account for one of the characters! I have one character in particular in mind but if I've introduced enough characters by the time I make this, I might open a poll for it. It would be (mostly) canon and show a little insight into what the character is thinking as the plot goes on. Would probably be humour-based. Depends on whether or not you find me capable of being funny.

I'm leaving the poll open until I actually reach 50 fans, where I'll go with whatever has the most options! If not enough people vote, I might extend it to 75 or even 100 fans. And yes, I only have 33 fans and 8 pages so far. I have no excuse for making this so early. I don't know why I'm doing it.

Have a nice day!
