Coup de grâce

Note to self: invest in rubber balls.

Based on a conversation between my lil' brother and I. Sort of a continuation on the inability to catch fainted pokemon issue, but with a fresh spin to it where the ball contact makes for an accidental final strike. On a different note, someone asked me to draw a strip featuring Scyther many moons ago, so the first panel is dedicated to you, guy-whose-name-is-now-forgotten-by-me!

Ah yes, ye good auld False Swipe. Mean Look, Spore, Sword Dance, False Swipe plus held Leftovers -- and you can catch everything. If you have a smeargle, of course.

August 26th, 2011, 5:38 am

Nice one :D. I don't think anyone ever thought of a false swipe joke before :D.

August 26th, 2011, 6:41 am

What would a Heal Ball do then when it makes contact>

August 26th, 2011, 6:46 am


This is for sure one of the most hilarious comicstrips you've ever done. :D

August 26th, 2011, 7:26 am

Lol that's so funny^^

August 26th, 2011, 9:27 am

Yeah, I can see how chucking a ball at someone's face could knock out their last point of HP. xD

August 26th, 2011, 9:52 am


I would have never thought about that. I bet pokeballs actually hurt, given how hard and how fast they are thrown.

August 26th, 2011, 12:01 pm

The idea's been done. No worries, though. :P

He probably did something wrong. Maybe you have to press the button harder?

August 26th, 2011, 12:10 pm

Maybe Gold needs the look at the "Catching Pokemon" Book lawl owo

August 26th, 2011, 12:11 pm

@Guest: Actually, you can't catch everything unless you replace one of those moves with Foresight. :p

August 26th, 2011, 2:31 pm

@Guest: Mmm... Smeargle, so?

August 26th, 2011, 2:52 pm

Reminds me of that one anime ep...

August 26th, 2011, 4:40 pm

Than it goes "poof" from being fainter

August 26th, 2011, 5:25 pm

i dont want to sound trolly, but you got Aipom's stomach wrong.

August 26th, 2011, 11:00 pm

OMG this is amazing. hahahaha one of your best yet!

August 27th, 2011, 1:17 pm

I guess Gold forgot to press A+B+Down. xD


August 27th, 2011, 4:05 pm

I've been following your comic from the start and this is one of your best! Simple but hilarious! Keep up the great work!

August 28th, 2011, 3:14 am

I would love to see a comic strip about how the pokemon sink into the ground after they're defeated.

This is hilarious, I love it. xD

August 28th, 2011, 4:04 pm


make a comic about the inside of poke balls!

August 28th, 2011, 4:42 pm

LOL that was hilarious. Interestingly enough, the move Fling fails when the pokemon itself attempts to throw an attached pokeball.

August 29th, 2011, 4:27 am

@DirkManlee: Great, now that's all i can see when I look at this comic.

Just a wierd looking Aipom belly surrounded by gibberish.

@Shoop-da-Whoop: Eh, ^ ^ v v < > < > B A Start is better. Works every time! :v

August 29th, 2011, 9:10 pm

haha *smack*

August 30th, 2011, 12:13 pm

Imagine the heavy ball@Celestial_Wolf:

August 30th, 2011, 4:07 pm

Anybody else noticing that after the pokeball hit the Aipom, it's JUST starting to open? owo

August 30th, 2011, 5:12 pm

I always

wondered how come you couldn't just capture the pokemon once it fainted. Oh well.

August 30th, 2011, 11:43 pm

Another Good One

If you're trying to capture a pokemon and it does Take Down or any other damaging move when it is at low health and knocks itself out... also, the Legendaries when they take too long capture and end up knocking themselves out with Struggle ;) That's always so infuriating haha

August 31st, 2011, 8:08 pm

This Site

has funny jokes.

September 1st, 2011, 3:54 pm

Would be even more sucky if it was a shiny Aipom. ;)

September 1st, 2011, 11:05 pm

Many a Pokemon would have been lost to me >:

September 2nd, 2011, 10:41 am

You know I really wanna see a comic about Farfetch'd. It's one of the rarest and most crappy pokemon.... yet the comcept, a samurai duck, seems totally frackin' awesome. What's your take on this farfethed pokemon (see what I did there!?)

September 4th, 2011, 1:54 pm


And then it magically sinks into the ground. :3

September 5th, 2011, 8:28 pm

@Celestial_Wolf: Heal it, making it harder to catch

September 11th, 2011, 8:01 pm

Aipom Fainted!


October 17th, 2011, 5:56 pm

HAhahahah! thats so goddamn awesome!

January 28th, 2012, 2:27 pm


False Swipe's name comes from a japanese swordfighting technique which consists of hitting the opponent with the blunt side of your blade. So Scyther should have been hitting aipom with the side of his hand-blade thingy.

Nevermind, that's probably just me being pedantic.

June 28th, 2012, 2:28 pm

Rubber balls? -Waggles eyebrows- xD

August 16th, 2012, 7:50 pm

Trainer used FLING!
It was super effective!

October 6th, 2012, 7:38 pm

I hate it when I kill a pokemon before I catch it

March 21st, 2013, 1:49 pm


Why would anyone catch an Aipom anyway? :I

April 30th, 2013, 4:39 pm

@TheStranger: maybe cause it needs it concious to mess with its mind for the loyalty aspect?
