I've duplicated so much lineart in this strip. I feel dirty.

All things considered, introducing achievements to Pokémon made for a nice novelty in B2W2. Some are hard to get, some are completed automatically, and some leaves you questioning your past life choices. Family fun for all ages and below.

I'm certain that most of you are already aware of the announcement regarding the new Pokémon X and Y games coming this October. If not, commence your hyped expectations. I'll still keep to my own schedule, but since the internet has exploded with material concerning the new starters and legendaries, anything I would have joked about has already been covered. The world wide web foils my plans once again.

THOSE FACIAL EXPRESSIONS especially on dat 6th panel.

January 23rd, 2013, 3:15 pm


Coincidentally, if you get the Trash Master medal, you know you're an old school Pokémon gamer. 9th Panel: My face when I first got 50 as well.

@Guest Guy: Every adventurer knows the trash holds great valuables. And electric switches.

Search all the Trash Cans!

Dr. Mario

I like how the medal guy looks like Dr. Mario.

January 23rd, 2013, 4:23 pm

These are hilarious!

January 23rd, 2013, 4:34 pm

He seems familiar...

Medal Man reminds me of Teddy Roosevelt. Is that just me?

January 23rd, 2013, 5:36 pm

He looks like what I think Eggman's dad looks like.

Also, is there a medal for getting a medal?

January 23rd, 2013, 6:29 pm

@ShinyHoundoom229: In a way, as shown in Panel 9. You get medals for earning 50, 100, 150, 200, and 255 medals. Almost to 200!

January 23rd, 2013, 7:19 pm

Dat sixth panel.

Just... dat sixth panel.

January 23rd, 2013, 10:06 pm

Ah, reminds me of girl scouts. Horrible times.

January 24th, 2013, 1:35 am

You would think that the game didn't have enough tedious tasks of collecting.

January 24th, 2013, 1:43 am

ah ha ha ha ha ha ha

January 24th, 2013, 2:30 pm

Haha, this is so funny! Coincidentally, I just got 50 medls myself XD

January 24th, 2013, 10:59 pm

Food for Thought

You know, I have only ever received the one medal your are forced to get.
I have earned most of the medals in the game.

January 25th, 2013, 3:48 am

My favourite part about the medal system?

That some are impossible to get if you live in the wrong place. ._.

January 25th, 2013, 7:34 am


Why would Nate and Rosa want to look in bins?

January 25th, 2013, 6:46 pm

@Stretch Longfellow: Great! Keep it up! And if you get them all, you get a diploma!

Wow, a diploma. I can see myself with one now...

January 26th, 2013, 7:06 am


Trainer:OK! i've collected 10,000 medals!
Professor:Excellent!You get the general medalist! now go collect 50 more and you'll get the 2 star general medalist! Trainer:AAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

January 26th, 2013, 10:21 am


I didn't know the garbage cans were empty

February 2nd, 2013, 3:46 pm

Can't relate

skipped this game,waiting for x and y :P

February 2nd, 2013, 7:01 pm

@Shadow-Dinosaur: So true.

February 3rd, 2013, 7:22 am

9th panel

the facial expression is hilarious in the 9th panel

February 3rd, 2013, 7:23 am

i hate mr. medal

February 6th, 2013, 8:05 am

That's fantastically annoying.

February 12th, 2013, 10:31 pm

Could I make a suggestion? :3 I don't know if you take suggestions, but I was looking at Swablu's Pokedex 3D data entry, and it said that they like to sit on people's heads and pretend they are hats. I thought you might be able to do a funny strip about that if you wanted an idea for a new one

February 13th, 2013, 7:28 pm

As funny as it is, it would be more funny if i had black/white 2. And the only way that that will happen is when the series is actually FRICKIN GOOD AGAIN!!!

February 15th, 2013, 6:00 am

@Gamining King: Well then it looks like you're gonna be buying Black 2 and White 2.

February 17th, 2013, 4:41 pm

Amen to that

@Guest: So true, it's just not possible depending on where you are. I know where I live, I'll never be able to get any of the XTransceiver minigame medals =/ or the Funfest mission ones that requires even 10 people

February 19th, 2013, 8:30 pm

Impossible to complete

@Kalina: Sadly I've had to come to terms with the fact that I will pretty much never complete any Pokemon game fully, lest I spend extra money on the alternate version, or cheat.
The fact that I don't know anyone playing the games means I've got no chance of getting version-exclusive Pokemon. (And the worst was not being able to even see a Rufflet at all in Pokemon Black, without having a copy of White. And you can't use the GTS either, since you have to have seen the Poke you're after for your trade).

But the Xtransceiver things are annoying. Because just like the 3DS's StreetPass functions, I'm never likely to get games done where I live, as no one has one or carries one. If only I lived (even for a day) in somewhere like Japan.

February 20th, 2013, 10:22 am

I could help

@Sir Dooble: If it's Pokedex troubles, and you have access to Wi-Fi, I could possibly help you out. I pretty much have access to the entire National Pokedex (no cheats involved), and could easily trade you Pokemon that you need.

February 20th, 2013, 7:40 pm

Kind to offer.

@Kalina: It's nice of you to offer, but I'm perfectly fine for Pokemon now.
I had the Rufflet problem in Pokemon Black, but am fine now that I own White 2.

Most of my problems came about in pre-GTS games. Without purchasing another copy, I didn't have much chance of getting all pokemon.
And the other main problem was event-exclusive pokemon, which I never was able to get, as it tended to be that I'd get the game long after most events were even taking place.

But I've avoided the mantra of "Gotta catch 'em all", and just enjoyed what I can.

And every now and then I get a nice little deal on the GTS, when users aren't being silly and asking for impossible trades. (All those stupid level 1 Dialga's and whatnot...)

February 20th, 2013, 11:53 pm

@Sir Dooble: u can breed the evolved form with a ditto in b&w2

February 22nd, 2013, 8:20 pm

Updated Mondays?

More like updated NONEdays.... faggot

February 23rd, 2013, 11:52 am

If anyone with a paypal account is reading this please listen. Go to Itoshii's Crazy Nuzlocke Adventures a pokemon sapphire nuzlocke and read the latest page. I can't do much more about the situation because i'm only 12.

February 25th, 2013, 8:14 am

@Heyguy: You don't like it, get off your backside and draw your own.

Besides, read the FAQ on here - he aims to update every month. Not every week, every month.

March 1st, 2013, 9:29 pm

This is my way of saying I love your work and you are making me depressed. Please. Please. More. More.

March 1st, 2013, 10:21 pm

I actually found a couple of items in the bins in B2W2... I think one was even a Rare Candy.

Don't ask me which bins though... I can't remember.

March 1st, 2013, 10:40 pm

Trash can

I looked in a trash can in opelucid city in black and tried it again in black 2 and thats how i got it

March 5th, 2013, 5:43 pm

My butt

No. New comics. Sad face :,(

March 5th, 2013, 11:42 pm


Ok, its been a month... Please don't let this comic die (or at least not without a warning! D:). This is by far the best pokemon comic that I have found! I encourage you to continue pursuing art, you've gotten so good! Love these, and I hope that you don't abandon this comic because that will make me very sad :'(

March 6th, 2013, 3:20 am

@Heyguy: You call someone a faggot that does this out of their own time for free?

Um yeah... while I'm note the one to really use derogatory slurs, you're the real faggot here buddy.

March 7th, 2013, 9:21 am

Now I know how strange the Pokemon world is... +Fav.

March 8th, 2013, 8:12 am

Yes MageLeif I am a homosexual. Why are you trying to flame on on a beautiful comic? I have every right to express that without this comic I would slip into insanity so of course I would call the producer a faggot when he forces me slide down that slippery slope. You fucking bigot.

March 8th, 2013, 11:32 am


^That's kind of awkward.

March 9th, 2013, 1:36 pm

@Lol: someone threw away a FULL bottle of Zinc(stupid Nursery Aides).

March 10th, 2013, 7:09 pm


Mr. Medal Man looks less creepy in the games...

March 12th, 2013, 1:32 pm

@heyhuy: I agree with Nayguy. Also your trolling needs work, it kind of sucks.

March 12th, 2013, 9:38 pm

Anybody there?

No new comics?

March 13th, 2013, 8:38 am

What is this even

March 14th, 2013, 3:14 pm

I can't wait either

@froakie: I drew speculation evolutions for fennekin. BUT I DON HAVE A FREAKIN 3DS!!!!!!

March 14th, 2013, 3:19 pm

Here's a tip

@Sir Dooble: Here is the ONLY way that i have had a interaction on the game: FAMILY. My step cousin plays pokemon so if you can convince your family to play it you'll be home free

March 16th, 2013, 11:14 am

What material

This site has a new comic every month, if that...I'm taking it off my favorites list.

March 16th, 2013, 2:41 pm

Panel 3 is creepy. I think we have a possible stalker here.
