I like Soak as a move. It's an interesting effect which can serve you well if played correctly. It's just that when you imagine it in practise things get weird. Maybe it would have worked better as a Ghost move? I don't know. This is what keeps me up at nights.

Pokemon Black/White 2 strips comes next update. See y'all then.

Not bad. And merry Christmas!

I wonder if theres gonna be a pokemon title for wii u

December 25th, 2012, 8:32 am

I just noticed that Magmar's head is a butt. Been playin' Pokemon for years and that's the first time I noticed that.

@ShinyHoundoom229: Don't forget Castform!

Even worse if it's used on Charmander, considering it dies if it's tail fire goes out.

December 25th, 2012, 10:44 am

Would you not also run the risk of physically washing some pokemon away, like Muk and Grimer?

December 25th, 2012, 11:21 am


@.:AuraX:.: Actually, it's the EXACT opposite! When a charmander dies, it's flame goes off. Seems like dead things can't produce combustibles to use, huh?

"From the time it is born, a flame burns at the tip of its tail. Its life would end if the flame were to go out."

This is just funny no matter how you look at it!

December 25th, 2012, 12:29 pm

Wouldn't this kill a slugma or charmander?

December 25th, 2012, 12:59 pm

There is a disconnect between what the pokedex says and what actually happens. Soaking a Charmander won't kill it.
Remember who is responsible for the Pokedex entries.

December 25th, 2012, 1:59 pm

@.:AuraX:.: are we the only ones here that have the dream radar

December 25th, 2012, 2:35 pm

Probably not.

December 25th, 2012, 3:04 pm

in competitive battling, soak can be used against steel types so you could toxic them...a pokemon that could use these 2 moves effectively is alomomola

December 25th, 2012, 6:03 pm

@MetaFawful: That thing has cleavage for feet.


So, would getting a footjob from one of those things be considered a footjob or a boobjob?

December 25th, 2012, 11:47 pm

@ShinyHoundoom229: I don't even want to think about that one.

December 26th, 2012, 5:25 am

@Muddykip64: ...a 10 year old who lived isolated in a small town for all of his life?

December 26th, 2012, 9:33 am

this explains why darmanitan has a zen mode.

December 26th, 2012, 7:06 pm

@Muddykip64: Look back to the original show too though, when the pokedex told Ash things rather than him writing the entries. In that, Ash is told that if charmander's tail goes out that it will die. And he overhears during a storm the owner of the charmander he found outside laughing about it and he goes to save said charmander from death. It's kind of a big deal (that never comes up again because fuck character development). (Wait no I think it comes up once in that episode where Ash almost dies of hypothermia because he sends Charmander back to his pokeball rather than let it risk its life to save his.)

#Hasn't seen any of these episodes since their original airing on Cartoon Network #Remembers perfectly #This is why I can't get a job

@ShinyHoundoom229: Its japanese name is Boober, make of that what you want :)

December 27th, 2012, 4:00 pm

@Herpaderpderp: There was also the time when Charizard was frozen in a battle because it wouldn't do as Ash said, and ended up very nearly dieing. It wasn't really specifically mentioned about the tail fire, but the tail fire was the only thing not frozen and the camera focused on it slowly dwindling / getting stronger from time to time.

December 27th, 2012, 5:34 pm

Yeah, soak is an interesting move. The ability mummy is similar to it in the regards of change, but mummy is an odd ability. It's more like one pokemon is a zombie, inffecting other pokemon.

December 29th, 2012, 12:51 pm

Poor Kadabra

Did you know that you can prevent Pokemon that evolve through trading from doing so by making them hold an Everstone... and that this method works on every single Pokemon that fits that discription... Except Kadabra.
(I would love it if you made a strip about that and give me a shout out, keep on making this awesome strip.)

December 29th, 2012, 2:10 pm

Am I the only one that picked up pokemon black 2 in it's 1st week.

December 30th, 2012, 11:25 am

New Forms

What if the fire types hit by soak, have the firey aspects changed to aquatic? Like if Charizard's tail tip turned into a water fountain, and they got a color change too. So a light blue Charizard with a water fountain for a tail tip. That way it avoids the issue of Pokemon who require flames to live.

December 30th, 2012, 11:33 am

Well, not only would it be more logical as a Ghost type move that makes the enemy a Ghost type, but it would also be more useful, being that Ghost types are weak to themselves. A similar amount of usefulness could be achieved by making it Dragon type, but that's an impressive amount less logical than Soak is already.

December 30th, 2012, 11:34 am

@comicboy: I preordered it from Japan.

December 30th, 2012, 12:34 pm

I think Magmar became the Ghost-Type.

January 1st, 2013, 12:08 pm

Magmar's face in the first panel, I almost died laughing! haha

January 2nd, 2013, 4:42 am

FYI anime doesn't follow game logic, and Pokedex are known for making stuff up. The only time the Pokedex entry became "real" was when a kid was shown to be weakening after defeating her Litwick - and even then she didn't "die" as per Dex entries.

January 5th, 2013, 6:55 pm

If Magmar is Butthead, then who is Bevis?

January 8th, 2013, 7:46 pm

Oh lord...

Those B2W2 strips might be mistimed due to the most recent announcement - Pokémon X & Y are coming in October.

So...yeah. Not saying you should rush them...and from past experience, it doesn't seem like you'll move on to X & Y so quickly after its release.

January 15th, 2013, 2:55 pm

@AlchemistWarrior30: Electabuzz, of course.

That face in the last panel. Oh god my sides.

January 20th, 2013, 11:53 am

@Alg: I could picture Electabuzz donning on a shirt just to pull it over their head just for the sake of saying "corholio".

January 23rd, 2013, 6:32 am

Soak makes reasonable sense. If you're covered in water you'll be vulnerable to electricity and plants will have an easier time growing on you.

@PaDiYaFLAME: no worries by pokemon's child like standards you can just fix it by light them on fire
