Let me explain you a thing What Krypton's telling to Nick right now is an allegory. We, the audience, get to see the corresponding flashback imagery, with Krypton's narration. Nearly everything he's saying involves the use of metaphor-- the "castle" is really the former Auranova Industries; "page" and "knight" are pre-evolved and post-evolved Pokemon; "king" is the director. Nick manages to put two and two together later, but for now treat this as if Nick's only hearing the metaphorical story from Krypton's mouth.

**ALSO, ABOUT UPDATES: I'm getting my wisdom teeth out this Wednesday (12/17), and I have no idea how long it'll take me to recover my drawing abilities. The mystery ghost is back up there but I should hopefully have pages for you before I leave on the 30th. But, because it's so uncertain, I don't want to make a promise I can't keep.

Replies from Previous We've reached 500 pages how sweet is that omg you guys
@Critic: Yessss people who binge read in one day are my favorite people. You may have to wait a bit for the next page after today but hopefully not too long! Also, Krypton's ability is Huge Power, not Justified.

@sacridshadow (Guest): Considering how riled up he got from Radon, his mind might be elsewhere.

@RioBlitzle (Guest): omg no way that's awesome!! I'm so honored!

@Hart (Guest): He doesn't know that Krypton's planning to make one giant evolution. None of the captives know. We, the audience, know this because of flashbacks/dialogue during chapter 14, but the characters do not.

I find it interesting how you decided to have Krypton tell the story in the form of an allegory. I like it.

Well, I guess we're gonna hear the background story of this place That's the first time I saw Krypton with an innocent look:)

But, but, that is 3 questions... I suppose he gets all 3 in one go, but that is still cheating I think

@EEVEE627: It's not the first time it's happened. http://shinka.smackjeeves.com/comics/1526343/14-11-295/

STORY TIME!!!!!! Oh, yay! Metaphors, cute evil little Pokemon, and Krypton's side of the story! (the latter I am the most excited about though.) Is it just me, or is Krypton adorable in the 2nd panel here?

@Luigi_96: Ok, let me rephrase that...

That's the SECOND time I saw Krypton with a innocent look:)

You always know it's gonna be interesting when the villain switches to fairy-tale mode...

Looks like Krypton really gets a kick out of it, too. I wonder if he ever gives underlings orders in allegory?

Congrats on 500 pages! Good luck with the wisdom teeth!

I like this method of showing the story with Krypton's metaphor. It'll be nice to see some of the history of the place, that's for sure.
