[-[[caption-width-right:350:The main four heroes are in the middle. Clockwise from upper left, they are: Syena, Reece, [[{{Deuteragonist}} Josie]], and [[TheHero Nick]]. [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters And then there's a bunch more people.]]]]-]

''Shinka: The Last Eevee'' is a {{Pokemon}} webcomic written and drawn by [=SilverLunarwing=].

The comic follows two friends, [[TheHero Nick the Eevee]] and [[{{Deuteragonist}} Josie the Quilava]], who live in a forest on the outskirts of Dynamon City, where they make a living doing various deliveries for other Pokémon in the area. Both of them have [[IdentityAmnesia amnesia]], which gave them a reason to bond after they met.

Meanwhile, a company known as Auranova Industries begins working towards a mysterious goal under the direction of Krypton the Lucario. Part of this scheme [[GottaCatchThemAll involves the seven Eeveelutions]], six of which are already captive at Auranova Headquarters. Not all of Auranova's employees endorse this, however -- two such dissenters are the partners Reece the Luxray and Syena the Gardevoir, both of whom have also had dealings with Josie in the past.

One day, Nick and Josie receive a letter from a Linoone offering a Lunar Wing as a reward, a mysterious artifact that is said to restore memories. They accept the request, not realizing that doing so would change their lives forever...

For those who are just starting to read the comic, keep in mind that it is drawn manga-style and is therefore read from right to left. Updates are usually on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, though Silver's busy schedule has occasionally caused small [[ScheduleSlip Schedule Slips]]. You can find it [[http://shinka.smackjeeves.com/comics/ here]].

Also has a side comic, [[http://anistuck.smackjeeves.com/comics ANIstuck]], which focuses on the day-to-day events at Auranova. It's highly reminiscent of old command-based video games in that the readers' comments can determine what happens next.

----
!!This webcomic provides examples of the following tropes:

* ActionGirl: Both Josie and Syena.
* AffablyEvil: Krypton the Lucario. When he's not kicking your ass, that is.
* AllDesertsHaveCacti: According to Sparks the Raichu, [[http://shinka.smackjeeves.com/comics/1764696/17-23-384/ they do]].
** However, [=SilverLunarwing=] is a geology major, so when an actual, non-imaginary desert shows up, this trope is neatly averted.
* AlphaBitch: Miranda, a Zangoose in Dynamon Town. She and her posse of hangers-on have evidently harassed Josie for being an outcast for quite some time. Unfortunately, by the time we see her in-comic, Josie has just [[spoiler:had her best friend kidnapped right in front of her]] and now realizes that Miranda and her cronies are several steps down the SortingAlgorithmOfEvil.
* AltText: Starts appearing partway through chapter 2. First time [[http://shinka.smackjeeves.com/comics/667817/2-17-38/ here]].
* AmbiguouslyEvil: Radon the Houndoom, second-in-command at Auranova Industries and Krypton's right-paw-Pokémon, who's shown visible distress over his job at least a couple of times. From what we've seen in flashbacks and during moments where he's alone, he'd probably be more cheerful if he ever had the opportunity.
* ArtEvolution: [=SilverLunarwing=] has gotten considerably better at drawing since she started the comic. Compare [[http://shinka.smackjeeves.com/comics/595570/1-13-13/ page 13]] with [[http://shinka.smackjeeves.com/comics/1407716/12-3-245/ page 245]].
* AsskickingEqualsAuthority: Krypton, full stop.
* BadDreams: Nick has nightmares about being chased by a Skarmory. They occasionally segue into odd dreams where a voice gives him vague warnings and such. [[spoiler: Turns out those odd dreams were actually [[{{Telepathy}} telepathic communication]] from Sol the Espeon, who believes Nick can help rescue the other captive Eeveelutions.]]
* BeatPanel: Used a couple of times for the more comedic moments.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Syena will beat the tar out of you with her PsychicPowers if you mess with her friends.
* BerserkButton: In the same way, threatening Syena while her partner Reece the Luxray is around is rarely, if ever, a good idea.
** Also, do ''not'' interrupt Josie and Nick when they're having a touchy-feely moment. Especially not if you're a [[KillItWithFire Grass-type]].
** Do not [[http://shinka.smackjeeves.com/comics/1961365/20-21-465/ refer to Krypton by his birth name]], [[spoiler: Lionel]]. Radon is probably the only person who could have done that and lived.
* BlatantLies: [[http://shinka.smackjeeves.com/comics/913595/5-16-100/ Why, no, Reece doesn't know about the Lunar Wing]]. Not a thing. Nope. Move along.
* BrickJoke: [[http://shinka.smackjeeves.com/comics/913605/5-19-103/ That rock]] that Grace the Glameow trips over [[CrashIntoHello when she meets Nick and Josie]]? [[http://shinka.smackjeeves.com/comics/1039376/6-24-133/ It makes a second appearance]] when Nick stumbles on it while chasing Niche the Ivysaur.
* BurningWithAnger: Josie gets into this a couple of times, what with being a Fire-type and having naturally-occuring body flames and all.
** Josie's ability means she actually gets ''stronger'' when she's ticked off.
* CaptainObvious: Nick and Josie have a few moments like this.
** [[LampshadedTrope Lampshaded]] [[http://shinka.smackjeeves.com/comics/1046676/6-27-136/ here]]
* CatsAreMean: Averted by Reece the Luxray, played straight by Rayle the Persian. They don't get along.
* ChickMagnet: Nick shows elements of this. So far, he's gotten at least four girls interested in him. Of course, he's only interested in one of those four...
* CooldownHug: Attempted by Nick on Josie (really, it's more of a Cooldown Pat since they're both quadrupeds) when she's angry from talking about Reece and Syena. He gets burned in the process, which snaps her out of her funk.
* CoolShades: Nick gets a pair on page 2... [[SubvertedTrope and then falls over because he can't see while wearing them]]. The glasses are later stolen along with Josie's old bag.
** Those same sunglasses are [[http://shinka.smackjeeves.com/comics/1609341/15-17-330/ later seen]] in the possession of Jacques, a Gengar bandit extorting stuff from the residents of Deepwood Forest. He's the boss of the guy who stole Josie's bag.
* CrashIntoHello: How Nick met Grace the Glameow.
* CueTheRain: [[spoiler: Nick has been forced to evolve and kidnapped, Reece lost his fight with Rayle and has been permanently kicked out of Auranova Industries along with Syena, and Josie has been left unconscious and alone with the mother of all emotional traumas to work through]]. CueTheRain indeed.
* CurbStompBattle: After Krypton stops holding back, his duel with [[spoiler: Syena]] quickly segues into this.
** Also crops up when [[spoiler: Laedan the Skarmory manages to lock Nick into single combat with Spikes.]]
* DangerousForbiddenTechnique: Not so much "forbidden" as "really rare", but... [[spoiler: After evolving, Nick]] has the [[http://shinka.smackjeeves.com/comics/1810367/18-25-413/ Pure Power ability]], which allows the user to bypass their physical limits for a short time, complete with GlowingEyesOfDoom. [[http://shinka.smackjeeves.com/comics/1812803/18-26-414/ The one time he's demonstrated the ability]] in-comic so far, it lasted about fifteen seconds before the PowerStrainBlackout kicked in (granted, he did kind of have a concussion at the time).
* DeadpanSnarker: Josie has her moments.
-->''(after finding a letter hidden in her home)'' "If this is some new form of advertising, I'm not buying it."
** So does Reece.
* DefectorFromDecadence: [[spoiler: Reece and Syena, who eventually break from Auranova Industries because Krypton's... kind of a power-hungry megalomaniac.]]
* {{Determinator}}: Luna the Umbreon has made ten (failed) escape attempts from Auranova Industries so far. She has been stopped by none other than Krypton himself at least once. None of this has impacted her resolve to escape in the slightest.
* DidTheResearch: As explained by the AltText on [[http://shinka.smackjeeves.com/comics/1765486/17-25-386/ this page]], the desert cave [[spoiler:Reece and Syena]] are hiding in is made out of reddish-brown stone instead of dark grey stone (which would be more appropriate near volcanoes). This particular detail is mostly present because [=SilverLunarwing=]'s a geology major.
* DistinguishingMark: Luna's rings are diamond-shaped, while Shadow's are orange rather than yellow. And somehow the latter was reason enough for their clan to banish him.
* DopeSlap: Done by Syena to Reece [[http://shinka.smackjeeves.com/comics/706942/3-4-45/ here]].
* ElementalPowers: This is a {{Pokemon}} webcomic, after all.
* FiveBadBand: [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters We haven't met everyone at Auranova Industries yet]], but this is how the FiveBadBand seems to be shaping up.
** BigBad: Krypton, head of Auranova Industries
** TheDragon: Radon the Houndoom, Krypton's second-in-command. He's of the reluctant but loyal sort.
** TheBrute: Probably Xenon the Charizard, judging by what we've seen of his personality and the information on the cast page.
** TheDarkChick: Shadow the Umbreon, who is responsible for the near-total annihilation of his clan. Older brother of Luna (the only other surviving member of their clan), one of the captive Eeveelutions.
** No clear candidates for TheEvilGenius have surfaced yet, but there's still quite a bit of comic to go.
* FiveManBand: May end up changing as the comic progresses, since [[spoiler: Nick and Josie have been separated]]. This is how it seems to be shaping up so far.
** TheHero: Nick
** TheLancer[=/=]{{Deuteragonist}}: Josie
** TheBigGuy: Reece
** TheSmartGuy: Syena
** TheChick: No obvious candidates yet, but as with the FiveBadBand, there are still more characters we haven't met. Perhaps Eclipse the Absol, or maybe [[GenkiGirl Grace the Glameow]].
* {{Foil}}: Reece and Rayle. Both are [[PantheraAwesome large cat-like Pokémon]], both work for Auranova Industries, and both consider the other TheRival, but while Reece is a JerkWithAHeartOfGold, Rayle's just a {{Jerkass}}.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Goes as far back as page 1, which features a silhouette of something that looks rather like a Skarmory in one panel. As the story progresses, Nick continues to [[BadDreams have nightmares]] about being chased by a Skarmory. Ultimately, [[spoiler: a Skarmory named Laedan features rather prominently in the plot to force Nick to evolve]].
* ForTheEvulz: Laedan the Skarmory's rationale for smashing Inez the Plusle's toy boat.
* FourthWallMailSlot: [=SilverLunarwing=] has [[http://askstle.tumblr.com/ set up a Tumblr]] where people can ask questions and get answers in art form.
* GeniusBruiser: Krypton. Again.
* GenkiGirl: Grace the Glameow. She's basically a hyperactive, walking WallOfText who's quite prone to AttentionDeficitOohShiny.
* GottaCatchThemAll: Present, but with a twist. Krypton wants one of each Eeveelution because it's important to his plans. [[WordOfGod The author has mentioned]] that there are lots more Pokémon being held captive at Auranova Industries, though.
* GoryDiscretionShot: Right [[http://shinka.smackjeeves.com/comics/1886684/19-26-444/ here]], courtesy of Rayle.
* HeroicBastard: The author refers to the Dynamic Duo, Sparks and Loups, as "bastard brothers", or half-brothers whose parents never married.
* InterspeciesRomance: Reece (Luxray) and Syena (Gardevoir), who aren't even in the same egg group. And aside from all the ShipTease Nick gets with Josie, Grace (Glameow) clearly has an unrequited crush on him. And it probably occurred with Sparks and Loups' father and at least one of their mothers, seeing how they're a Raichu and a Mightyena and Pokemon usually inherit their mother's base species.
* {{Jerkass}}: Rayle the Persian. Overlaps with CatsAreMean above.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Reece, who often acts like a jerk to people he doesn't genuinely care about. Even then, he's got a sense of justice and morality [[spoiler: that ultimately leads to him turning on Auranova Industries.]]
* JustFriends: Nick and Josie.
** ...at least, for now. [[ShipTease Things might change later]].
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: Both Nick and Josie suffer from this, though Josie has lived with hers for a bit longer than Nick. Neither of them can remember much about their past apart from a vague feeling that something is wrong. They've kinda bonded over their mutual lack of memories/friends/etc.
** To be more precise, they both suffer from IdentityAmnesia, which is why they both jumped at the chance to get hold of a Lunar Wing, an artifact said to be able to restore memories. [[spoiler: Too bad the whole thing was a trap.]]
* LadyOfBlackMagic: Syena comes across as this, though she uses PsychicPowers instead of magic.
* LightningBruiser: Krypton, yet again. If it isn't obvious by now, Krypton is not the kind of guy you want to mess with.
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: That page image up there? We haven't even been formally introduced to all of ''those'' characters, and there are tons more that aren't on there.
* LogicalWeakness: Being a Fire-type, Josie is understandably somewhat wary of large bodies of water.
* MamaBear: In a literal example, the Ursaring from [[http://shinka.smackjeeves.com/comics/1508520/14-1-285/ this flashback]]. Sadly, those were Nick's parents on the receiving end of her wrath. [[KilledOffForReal Emphasis on the past tense.]]
* NeckLift: Xenon the Charizard does one to Nick [[http://shinka.smackjeeves.com/comics/1801775/18-21-409/ here]]. It helps that he's about three times Nick's size and that Nick has fur to grab onto.
* NonIndicativeName: Grace the Glameow, who is pretty much anything ''but'' graceful. See CrashIntoHello above.
* NoPronunciationGuide: [[AvertedTrope Averted]]. The cast page includes pronunciation pointers for both Syena and Laedan ("sea-enna" and "lay-den", respectively), the pronunciation of which may not be immediately obvious.
* OfficialCouple: Reece and Syena, or as [=SilverLunarWing=] put it, [[http://shinka.smackjeeves.com/comics/1765486/17-25-386/ "Shipping your own characters... Making your ship canon because you're the damn author."]]
* OhCrap: [[http://shinka.smackjeeves.com/comics/1037122/6-23-132/ Niche the Ivysaur]] [[TemptingFate stole Josie's new bag]]. The one that Nick gave her. And he did this while she was hugging Nick. UnstoppableRage ensues. Oh, and he's [[KillItWithFire a Grass-type]], too.
** [[http://shinka.smackjeeves.com/comics/1299400/10-10-209/ Nick remembers that he spent all his money.]]
* OmniscientMoralityLicense: Sol [[spoiler: used his psychic powers to move Auranova towards kidnapping Nick, because his Future Sight indicated that unlike the other three candidates he could help break them out. Luna doesn't agree though, and Nick [[WhatTheHellHero calls him out]] when he first hears of this.]]
* PersonalityPowers: In a rather more literal example than most, Josie's [[TechnicolorFire Emotional Flame]] ability means the intensity of her flames (both on her body and in her attacks) is determined by her emotional state. It's rather unwise to mess with her [[UnstoppableRage when she's angry]].
* PunchClockVillain: [[TheDragon Radon]], [[BigBad Krypton's]] second-in-command. He'd be a decent guy if his boss wasn't so set on being a megalomaniacal jerk.
* QuestForIdentity: Nick and Josie, since they can't remember much about their respective pasts.
* ReverseMole: [[spoiler: Reece and Syena]], who eventually turn against Auranova.
* {{Seers}}: Eclipse has [[DreamingOfThingsToCome prophetic dreams]] that she says come from the moon. While Sol makes extensive use of Future Sight while meditating, though [[spoiler: he also uses his telepathy to manipulate people into following the futures he wants.]]
* SelfMadeOrphan: Shadow the Umbreon, who quite unrepentantly lead an army from Auranova to murder his entire clan, save for his sister, Luna, who was imprisoned as the first of the Eeveelution test subjects. Granted, he was the subject of some [[FantasticRacism nasty clan-wide prejudice and hatred]] because of his orange-colored rings, but still...
* AStormIsComing: A thunderstorm builds gradually all throughout chapters 11 and 12. [[CueTheRain The storm finally breaks]] at the end of chapter 13 just after everything all goes south.
* SympatheticPOV: When Nick and Josie run into Reece and Syena in chapter 1, Syena destroys a job offer on a message board. Chapter 3 follows Reece and Syena after that event and starts exploring their side of things.
* [[spoiler: TakeOverTheWorld]]: [[spoiler: Krypton's ultimate goal.]]
* TapOnTheHead: Used to knock [[spoiler: Josie]] unconscious after [[spoiler: Nick is forcibly evolved and kidnapped.]]
* TechnicolorFire: Josie's Emotional Flame ability means her body flames change color depending on her mood (blue for sad, yellow for happy, red for angry, etc.) They also turn green when [[http://shinka.smackjeeves.com/comics/1727740/17-9-370/ she's about to launch a]] [[ThePowerOfTheSun SolarBeam]].
* TeleportersAndTransporters: The Teleport move, which Syena knows. Comes in handy for rapid travel, even with multiple people tagging along.
* TemptingFate: Happens a couple of times, from Luna taunting Krypton while he's got her at his mercy to Niche messing with Pokémon that have type advantages over him.
* TentacleRope: Krypton can manipulate a substance called Aura-Fire to create this. He can make it feel cold or hot to the touch, though it can't actually freeze or burn the victim. Mostly the temperature control is there to discourage struggling.
* ThemeNaming: Various employees of Auranova Industries are code-named after elements on the periodic table. The higher-ups are all named after noble gases, i.e. Krypton, Radon, Xenon, etc.
** In addition, the towns of Aezala are all named for gemstones commonly found nearby, i.e. Dynamon=Diamond, Perinet=Peridot, etc.
* ThroughAFaceFullOfFur: Necessary when most of the cast members are fuzzy.
** Comet the Flareon shows a variation: she has a tattoo on her hind legs that is still (somehow) visible through her fur.
*** Apparently it's permanent fur dye.
* ThrowItIn: The subplot involving Josie losing her bag got started because the author realized she'd been forgetting to draw it for the last several pages.
* TookALevelInBadass: Syena finally decides to stick up for herself more and ends up challenging [[spoiler: Krypton]] to a duel in chapter 11. She loses the fight, but since [[spoiler: Krypton's a [[GeniusBruiser Genius]] LightningBruiser whose AsskickingEqualsAuthority]], it's only to be expected.
* TheUnintelligible: Phi the Porygon-Z of Auranova Industries, who speaks only in [[{{Wingdinglish}} Webdings]]. Serves as a bit of an EasterEgg for anyone who takes the time to transliterate what he's saying.
* WallOfText: Grace has a habit of doing these, lampshaded in the AltText [[http://shinka.smackjeeves.com/comics/944942/5-21-105/ here]].
* WebcomicTime: About a week has passed in universe and it started in 2009.
* WhipItGood: In the Shinka-verse, the [[PsychicPowers Psychic]] move results in a [[EnergyWeapon weapon formed from psychokinetic energy]]. Syena's version manifests as [[WhipItGood whip-like tendrils]] on her arms.
* WordOfGod: The author will often answer questions posted in the comments section -- so long as doing so won't give away any spoilers, of course.
* YouAreNumberSix: Krypton refers to Luna (and presumably the other captive Eeveelutions) by number. Luna is number 197, [[ShoutOut which happens to be Umbreon's number in the National Pokédex]].
** Confirmed to apply to all the captive Eeveelutions. [[spoiler: Now including Nick, who is number 470.]]
