No pokémon were seriously injured in the production of this strip.

Have some additional reference.

This is another one of those strips which once finished, despite the eagerness to start making it, becames something I'm not entirely sure of. Or at least feel that it's not up to the standard of previous strips. Either way, the feedback I've gotten about it has allowed me to make the best of it, so here's hoping that this will make most of you at least smile and/or chuckle.

As a small bonus, I've been doing some art on the side now that I update this comic less frequently, one of them being 'draw one pokémon of each type' meme. And while it was a tough decision, my Ground poke of choice ended up with Quagsire, and it was therefore impossible for me to draw him without including the appropriate attire.

I currently have no plans for another strip which continues on Wailord's and Quagsires earlier escapades, but I do want to make one, so I should brainstorm some possible alternatives for bringing them to the spotlight again.

Might be two weeks before the next update. Might not. But let's assume the former, or worse.

Dat Quagsire. <3

January 23rd, 2012, 11:42 am

AHAHAHA! The rake trick. Classic.

January 23rd, 2012, 11:49 am

Lol that was so funny, using rakes if everything else fails^^. Ohh and that Quagsire looks cool^^

January 23rd, 2012, 11:53 am

You were right about the chuckles

January 23rd, 2012, 12:51 pm


Don't forget the garden hoe comes after it once the victim staggers back!

January 23rd, 2012, 2:02 pm

That totally needs to be a new move - Rake Trap

January 23rd, 2012, 3:03 pm

@Lunasa: I'd use that move! XD

January 23rd, 2012, 4:44 pm

I'll have to remember that...

January 23rd, 2012, 5:45 pm

Perhaps the well dressed dou of quagsire and wailord could be engaged in a battle, where they'd sit and do nothing.

January 23rd, 2012, 8:40 pm

Totally looks like professor layton. good job!

January 23rd, 2012, 9:18 pm

Quagsire & the attire

I think you should give Quagisire a stache. That or a cane. Or sideburns. Donn't know why, just think he'll look cool.

January 23rd, 2012, 9:48 pm

I dont get it, yet its still funny

January 24th, 2012, 6:27 am

That is so cool!!!!! how do you make them so funny

January 24th, 2012, 10:34 am

FYI, rakes are a great entry hazard when fighting Sideshow Bob.

January 24th, 2012, 4:01 pm


They should totally make a Garden Rake entry hazard.

January 25th, 2012, 1:03 am

I vote he be called 'Quagsir'

January 25th, 2012, 4:26 am

Whenever i see that garden rake, i instantly think "PLANTS VS. ZOMBIES!"

January 25th, 2012, 5:51 pm

How do you summon the garden rake, use magnetics? Besides, the trainer would obviously avoid it when sending out the 'mon. And the 'mons aren't that dumb. Hey, I've an idea! It only works if the opponent has the ability 'Oblivious'!
P.S. @gamekidg7: OMG Quagsire in tophat give him stache! Or cane! Or a combover! Wait, that would need a stache.

January 26th, 2012, 11:47 pm

Trusty Old Rakes.

So garden rakes would be super effective against grass type pokemon, no?

January 28th, 2012, 2:41 pm

I have just read the whole archive, I've looking for a pokemon themed webcomic for a long time, keep up the good work!

Man I wish I could draw worth a damn, seeing this kind of comics makes me wish I could make my own.

Sorry Lucario...

...but does anyone hear metal (RAAAAUGH!!!), Sonic Adventure 3-"Live and Learn" and\or PWNED!! in their minds looking at the last panel?
Btw,metal means revenge when you add pissed off furry creatures.

@WockyJunior: Nah, Garden Rakes would be like Stealth Rock, except damage would be based on height. Imagine it, Flying types would ingore it completely. Pokes under 2ft would lose 1/16th of their HP, 2-4ft = 1/10th, 4ft - 6ft = 1/8th and over 6ft = 1/6th.

January 31st, 2012, 12:26 am

well my friend that's just 2 awesome

February 2nd, 2012, 12:56 am

@LuigiMan200: lmao, taller Pokemon get hit with more of the rake
No, I meant, you know how you use garden rakes to weed your garden? Would that make it super-effective to grass types?

February 3rd, 2012, 4:49 pm

@WockyJunior: You use a rake? I always used them to gather leaves. For weeds, I use a...


...uh, no, I don't think they'd use that word in a Pokemon game.

February 4th, 2012, 12:55 pm

@WockyJunior: Oh, I see what you mean, although you wouldn't be using the 'sharp' bit of the rake but I shouldn't think too far into it. XD

February 5th, 2012, 6:58 pm

dude, the taller ones would take less damage because they would have the pain spread evenly, whereas the short ones would take all of the brunt full on in a small spot

February 6th, 2012, 11:31 pm

@Luigiman200 LOL right we're gamers not obsessive thinkers xD

February 8th, 2012, 11:44 am


Would that work on flying pokemon?

February 8th, 2012, 10:43 pm


Ah, I've been using the broom technique, so maybe that's why I kept failing! :)

February 19th, 2012, 3:15 pm

"When all else fails, garden rakes succeed."

No truer words can be said. XD

February 22nd, 2012, 12:45 pm

that raichus cute

February 22nd, 2012, 10:14 pm


@LuigiMan200: Wailord loses all health.
