1. Night. Outside of a large country mansion. Picturesque forest and well-kept gardens surround the mansion. In the foreground, crouching down casing the joint is a BURGLAR, she wears all black and a mask of Gengar hides her face. Her long purple hair hangs out in a ponytail out of the back of the mask. A Kadabra kneels at her side.

         CAPTION:
         Just outside Fuchsia City.

         BURGLAR:
         Time to work your magic Kadabra.

2. Inside the mansion. In a grand hallway (Reference) KADABRA and the BURGLAR stand in the hallway, a small cloud of smoke around them.

         SFX: (Around the cloud of smoke.)
         BAMF

3. The BURGLAR holds a pokeball in her hand.

         NO COPY.

4. Now sat in front of the BURGLAR is her MEOWTH. It looks graceful, sleek and cunning.

         NO COPY.

5. Three shot of the BURGLAR, KADABRA and MEOWTH walking down the grand hallway. The BURGLAR walks in the middle, flanked by her pokemon. Kadabra hold his arms ready to cast a move if needed, MEOWTH walks on all fours, tail held high, sniffing the air.

         BURGLAR 1:
         Do your thing Meowth.
         (Linker)
         BURGLAR 2:
         Sniff out the safe.

  1. So would I be correct in guessing that this is meant to be part of Dark Knight Rises as re-imagined if it were part of the Pokemon universe? Or am I way off?

    1. WOW! I didn't even notice the parallels until reading your comment.It totally works on that level but was not my intention going in, at least not consciously anyway. haha

  2. I feel like I can't offer any valid criticism at all this week as the contexts for most of these pages are just going over my head.

    That said, by itself this is a solid page and I liked the image the last panel suggests.

    1. A little reference for the page to clear up my intentions for you mate. The pokemon Kadabra has a move called Teleport, I've only ever seen it used to transport the trainer and pokemon to what is essentially a pokemon hospital. However here I wanted to treat it more like Nightcrawlers mutant powers and see how a crook would use that ability.

      As for the Meowth, its said to have a fascination with shiny objects, coins in particular, so here I push that to the furtherest reaches by having this trainers Meowth act like a very skilled cat burglar.
