What if the greatest monster catcher of them all, gave up? What if instead of trying to catch them all, he failed humanity against the sudden revolt of these pocket monsters? What will it take to bring our fallen hero back to his former glory? Read and see, with awesome (and sometimes gorey) art and throwbacks to some familiar nostalgia.

A slice of life cheeky standalone story, on the hunting of an apartment for a friend. This involves a little fantasy, with some colorful and imaginative sequential art.
