Ok... so this is technically half a picture since Pikachu isn't in it at the moment.
Work in progress folder. I know, right?
Anyway... what's going on is basically, one of the possible story elements involving Ritchie becoming... rather unpleasant... o__O and a threat being put to Sparky as a result.
Pikachu was supposed to be there insulted, hissing and ready to attack but I failed at drawing it and scrapped that half... because Ash's Pikachu just has so much damn attitude!
But I just had this cute image that Pikachu could be swearing or monologuing and you and me wouldn't know it... but Sparky would.
Incidentally, this is probably the saddest Pikachu you will ever see... at least... today, it is.
