Been procrastinating a whole lot lately, so this strip has not gone through the usual feedback stream like those preceeding it. I somehow ended up struggling up with basic anatomy this time around, with heads being too large and chests shifting in height, so I need to figure out a way to avoid the common issues or just practise practise practise.

Either way, this strip is dedicated to all those annoying people blocking gyms, buildings, routes and what-have-you, preventing you from some sweet exploring and potential loot stashed away. So if Strength can use boulders, then surely guards won't prove to be a challenge.


My last strip about Snover's weather ability messing up an otherwise pleasant day had, albeit with a different setup, been done before by Ryan (who draws pokémon). He has also several other comic strips and humorous images within his arsenals, so I can definitely recommend giving his tumblr a closer look.

Next week's update isn't for certain, but I'll aim to have a fully fledged strip up and ready. Otherwise I might need to improvise. Ciao.

Yeah, sorry my friends, but no strip this week. Life, gaming and sweet, sweet slacking got in the way this time around.

haha, i've always wondered how pokemon trainers with kick ass pokemon can be stopped by random guards

I love Feraligator's expression XD

I'm currently having problems with the two guards blocking paths to Kanto and Mt Silver.

The indifference on Feraligatr's face is priceless!

September 9th, 2011, 9:27 am

hahaha this makes me laugh more because i started a game on heartgold with totodile (now feraligatr) and i got really stressed at the guy who constantly tries to sell you ragecandybars in mahogony town. hate that guy! wish i could push him over with my feraligatr!

It'd be awesome if you could do that in the games. I hate those NPCs...

September 9th, 2011, 2:12 pm

I always wondered why this wasn't possible! o.o

September 9th, 2011, 3:56 pm

Geez, you also need to practice spelling "practise", too.

September 9th, 2011, 4:20 pm

gotta try that next time I bump into one of those stupid guards.

September 10th, 2011, 4:48 am

Good point. I especially don't like the guy blocking Mewtwo's dungeon in Kanto. Whose he to tell me I'm not worthy enough to enter?

@AxelThePokegodTrainer: Yeah! I want to visit the Cave of Origin before Kyogre/Groudon shows up!

@Karadom: Maybe you need to learn of the existence of British English. Just because you've learnt to spell it that way doesn't mean there aren't any alternative ways which are just as correct.

@Phareon: I don't really understand what you're trying to tell me. I'm well aware of the fact that practise is the British English form. The author said he needs to practise (notice it's a verb he's using), which is completely correct spelling-wise. Someone felt the need to correct him, since he didn't use the AE spelling. I disagreed telling them there's a BE way of spelling it too.

Pokemon: Team Rocket Rockets Version now lets you use Cut...ON PEOPLE! :D

September 11th, 2011, 7:59 pm

I simply LOVE that Feraligatr face!!! LOL!!!

September 13th, 2011, 7:53 am


I read every comic, and I just wanted to thank you for the shits and giggles. Great entertainment! Adding you to my watch on DA for sure. Keep up the awesome work.

September 13th, 2011, 7:04 pm

I...I think Feraligatr is braindead. Just look at his face ! I think I even see drool drooping from his mouth !

September 13th, 2011, 8:54 pm

Mewtwo used Gulliotine!

OK, I have Mewtwo* on my team in the front.The RCB** guy wouldn't let me have another candy bar! I wanted my Mewtwo to use Psycho Cut on him. >:D
*My Mewtwo is named Mewru
**Rage Candy Bar

Truly, this one made my day. Those idiots won't let us do what we want, they just freaking want to help us!

Thank you for this one.

September 14th, 2011, 8:28 am

totally that should be enabled in the pokemon franchise those guys are pain in the ... you know where.

September 17th, 2011, 1:59 pm

No comic yet this week? :(

September 17th, 2011, 9:27 pm

Just felt like being a wierdo. :p

September 19th, 2011, 8:46 am

ever heard of...

I'm pretty sure it's just a thing about social convention and ploiteness, I mean even if you were bigger and stronger than say a bouncer at a night club pushing him out of the way still wouldn't be a good idea...

September 23rd, 2011, 6:36 am

Talk about that thing in HG/SS that wont let you bring in large pokemon

September 23rd, 2011, 2:53 pm

this made my goddamn day.
The RageCandyBar guy in Mahogany Town is undoubtedly the WORST and most OBNOXIOUS NPC of all time.
(Well, in Pokemon at least)
He doesn't even tell you why you can't pass! XD

@ponty: I think social convention went out the window when we force small cute animals to battle each other to the death, and rob their owners afterwards.

Especially if you're doing a Nuzlocke challenge...

"So if Strength can use boulders" Strength doesn't USE anything, but it can MOVE them. You're welcome.

I love Feraligatr's face here
