It's for the best if we don't talk about the Fighting Gem.

Hello and welcome to another session of me fooling around. The topic of today is cavern gems, hope you'll have a good time.

I'll see if I can have some simplier strips up and ready when Mondays comes around, along with the usual Friday updates. Time will have to show if I'll land myself a heart failure or not!

Props for actually having all these as a single strip rather than stretching them out to several updates like I'm sure many would.

June 6th, 2011, 10:29 am

Too many updates for saying essentially the same thing.

I thought about doing the same thing with Hitmonchan, Gastly and Diglett back in the day, but those strips got a larger share of my attention and effort, so I felt it to be appropriate to post them separately.

Dude you should do one with the wings too!

You found a resist wing! *Resists*
You found a muscle wing! *Shows off muscles*
You found a pretty wing! *Flirts*
You found a genius wing! *Acts smart*

June 6th, 2011, 11:31 am

There's a strip planned for the wings, actually! But not in the way you had in mind I'm afraid.

i love your comics, they always make my day! thank you for posting! (and keeping my smile in check) :)

It's cool psychic gem.
I can "dig" it.

*ba dum pish*

June 6th, 2011, 2:12 pm

Totally heard "come back" in a titanic-ending kind of tone :D
Also more consistent facial art work in this one, nice improvement.

Two seconds later, the Pokemon trainer ended up burnt to a crisp.

CAN'T... STOP... LAUGHING! *laughs until unconscious*

June 6th, 2011, 3:46 pm

These made me laugh.

But... Needs moar Blah :(

What's brethren?

June 6th, 2011, 4:29 pm

Just a finer word for 'brothers', the fellow mates of the psychic gem still trapped in the soil. I should have checked the spelling though, but for once it seems like I was right on the first try!

You rang?

June 7th, 2011, 11:52 am

awesome as usual

Dragon ball z cameo. hilarious. think you can do a strip on N's ability to talk to pokemon?

June 7th, 2011, 12:51 pm


But this one sailed straight over my head. Would someone care to explain, por favor? Googling did not help...

June 7th, 2011, 8:15 pm

I didn't get the Dragon Gem reference. The rest were amazing though!

And to think I was selling them all off... But really, they aren't that great an item. Just one attack is boosted, as opposed to a, say, Draco Plate which is a permanent boost

June 7th, 2011, 10:30 pm


You demand one.
The dragon gem is supposedly a dragon ball from Dragonball (z, z: kai, ect.) and the kid is either gohan or goku, two characters from the show(s)

June 8th, 2011, 2:10 am


Just awesome.
'Nuff said.

June 8th, 2011, 2:50 pm

DK: In Black and White you can find gems, that increase a special type. Gems that increase ground-type are called ground-gems, for example.

June 8th, 2011, 11:49 pm

@Psycho Blah

Three words: Flying Gem Archeops.

Use Acrobatics. Flying Gem activates and is used up, which also activates Acrobatics' boost, giving that first attack....uh....lemme math it out...effectively 165 base power. Plus STAB.

All subsequent Acrobatics are 110 BP, plus STAB.



So yeah, most of the gems do suck, but if you have nothing else to put in there, they can certainly be a useful surprise. And of course Flying Gem + Acrobatics = pain. Just a matter of finding that niche.

Why does Gokuu/Gohan have hooker lips?

June 9th, 2011, 3:44 pm

Keep up the good work

Note that in Doubles/Triples/VGC, Normal Gem suddenly makes Explosion a viable move again.

June 11th, 2011, 3:46 pm

Heh. DBZ.

August 7th, 2011, 6:49 pm

Surprised you didn't use the poison gem, if I may.

August 27th, 2011, 6:18 pm

Other gem effects

This is just to be random, but I'll fill in some more. Water Gem would probably be wet, the Ice Gem is probably just ice, the Fire Gem would probably be very hot, the Rock Gem & Ground Gem probably the only REAL gems for sure...that's all I got so far.

October 17th, 2011, 6:23 pm

hey i found a rock gem...

whats it do?

it has rock essence..

lmao wtf?!

January 3rd, 2012, 7:01 am

Holy Crap

April 9th, 2012, 1:24 pm

Ground Gem: NO! PUT ME BACK!

June 10th, 2012, 9:05 pm


in order to understand the last one you need to know wut dragon ball z is.

June 11th, 2012, 5:15 pm

I demand a sequel. This was too good.

Ice Gems

You could make so much money off of ice gems! And rock gems too!
