Stuck between a rock and a hard place. ... Thad or bordeom.

This page looks so dark )8 Kinda okay though since they're in the thicker part of the forest rather than in a clearing. Still, I've not stopped playing around with backgrounds yet. Still looking for something that works best for me.

Did I exxagerate how long the scratch/harden thing takes? Noooo. ... ... No. ... Well. Maybe a little. Not much surely.

Plotting plotting something. What, exactly... will have to wait. See y'all soon.

I'm sure scratching a couple hundred more times will do the job. Go DT! ouo;;
Oh, and I didn't notice the belt phenomenon until you pointed it out.

*Edit: What in the name of heaven happened? First comment on Mokepon? God must love me today.

I was talking with my brother the other day about metapod battles, and we both agree they are the worst things ever.
Although I have to ask,
Metapod vs Magikarp
Who would win?
Or would both trainers just go insane?

I always think Thad doesn't have arms or something every time I see his flappy sleeves. ouo;

@darkauras:

Depends on what both Pokemon know. Magikarp can naturally learn Tackle, but you have to evolve Caterpie to get any moves. I'd say Magikarp would win only because it has the advantage of actually learning something slightly useful before evolution.

OP this comic is awesome, and also the bug catcher looks like luffy from one piece when you see the back of him.

I don't think you exaggerated the scratch harden thing at all. I remember fighting a Metapod for ten minutes once...but I had a Bulbasaur.

doesn't seem that exagerated to me. I remember 2 metapods in a row would have me out of (or nearly out of) PP.

@darkauras: Metapod would win due to the lower pp count. He would use struggle earlier and take less damage from it's use due to harden. This assumes of course that the two Pokemon are at the same or near same level and that neither know moves other than Harden or Splash.

*gasp* I thought that it was Team Rocket! Seems we were wrongs, unless she's the only one who actually took her time to TRAIN a pokemon, instead of STEALING one like a dumbass

I think that Metapod's Hardens lost effectiveness about 6 turns ago. XD It can only raise the defense so much, y'know Mr. Bug-Guy.

...But I forget...it's like his Metapod is in the top percentage of Metapods. XD

THE METAPOD'S HEART IS SO TRUE. THEIR COURAGE WILL PULL THEM THROUGH.

Best part of the battle:

So, how is Atty gonna figure out what to do and what'll happen with the two crazy villain duo? I also must say this, I wanna know the color scheme for Trix because she would make an epic cosplay. ^_^

now see, what'll happen is...

DT will find a random Caterpie crawling around.
DT will Slaughter the Cateripie and level up.
DT learns Ember and Slaughters the Metapod.
Atty wins 2 pokedollars because the Bugcatcher is flat broke

Or DT could attack one of Trix's Butterfrees and get super EXP. Whichever way works

How much health does that Metapod have? I want to smash it and step on the trainer's neck for being so stupid. Please! We're suffering here!

“Ah! Stop smoking! Your getting embers in my hair!”
“Who cares about embers?”
DT used Ember! It's super effective!
Metapod fainted! Finally!
@andy Maybe she stole the butterfrees? They need training even if she didn't catch them herself.

magicarp vs medapod under the assumtion that it was caught a medapod (only has harden)
medapod would pull ahead first
splash has 40 pp
harden has 30 pp
medapod would use struggle first
but depending on the hp determines if he will hurt magikarp enough before recoil kills him

This comic has motivated me to play pokemon again. And I am now completely traumatized by the pokemon black & white versions. They don't have any of the original pokemon. I feel old.

That Metapod can only go so long before it maxes it's defenses.

That or the Bug Trainer is using an Action Replay.

IDEA! Atty: "I sure hope that metapod burns in hell. I'd like to see how many EMBERS come off of it."

Dragonthing: [!] *Uses ember*

Predictions I'm betting the whole thing will end in 5 or 6 updates, and the Bug Catcher will send out another Metapod.

cue ARRRRRRRGH! *pulls out hair*

But it'd be nice to see just how, if at all, the writer manages to fit the word "ember" into casual conversation.
