Destructive Debate

This debate has really blown out of proportion.

I am of the opinion . . . .

. . . that a good comic should contain several jokes. Most often it's not possible, but it's a nice goal so that not only the last panel is necessarily the one making you laugh.

This idea has been lying around my subconscious for a good while, so seeing it out of its cage is a nice sight. Hope you enjoy it.

I always thought it was funny that Rockets Self destructed their Pokes nearly every time at the start of battle. It makes the battle somewhat of annoyance, because some of them do not use the move until you have knocked down some health and it's annoying to see that experience go down the tube.

Team Rocket + the fact that they just use their pokemon for Suicidal attack = ...I better watch it whenever they start thinking of using themselves as bombs.

I like that Team Rocket guy, doesn't mind taking time out of his busy schedule of moving around stolen pokemon and the death-ray-of-the-week to answer a reporter's questions.

And what about the reporter, having the balls to go down and talk to Team Rocket members while they're on assignment! I mean, it's not like they hang out at the local coffee-shop dressed like that, right? xD

Self Destruct is a stupid move as it kills off one of your team and it isn't definate that it'll finish off your apponents Pokemon. Still, I 'ave no problem with people I'm battleing them!! ;-)

Oh and PLEASE do the egg one! XD

The only way I see Self-Destruct as useful is as a last resort, if one of your Pokemon has got nothing left, no chance of winning, low on health, then the best way to go would be self-destruct.

Either way, I haven't used it on any of my main Pokemon.

To Axel1000

You're absolutely right. Explosion is actually a very popular move... for when a Pokemon's got nothing left it can do in a battle. Like, say, a special attacker stuck against a Blissey.

Yep too much like real life.

I love how the girl in the 2nd panel is 50% of the world.

June 24th, 2011, 4:23 pm

i think you could just return them to the day care guy

June 27th, 2011, 1:58 pm

that made so much sense (last panel)

suicide with no damage

Suicide can suck because ghosts cant be hit by it. so if you use it with metronome or hit it while frustrated during a fight

Typo @ 1st panel

Self-destucting? o.O

Suicide and abortion. 2 topics that are often talked about by the people of today. Obviously they're also talked about in the video game world. :)

I always enjoy it when a pokemon commits suicide while i have a rock or steel type out or my pokemon has high hp or defense e.g. lapras, tauros snorlax. less work for me

That's why I always battle Team Rocket with my Gengar first in line...

i have personally dreamed of an egg release option. factory breeding leaves you with four unwanted eggys [if using flamebody reduction] i hope that X And Y incorporates this! great art as always!
