it shure aint FARE

My deep, ugly grudges from every bug contest I've participated in have now emerged. It's not pretty.

In other news, I cleaned up the menu a bit, removing ALL unnecessary links. Feel free to use the links according to your own judgement.

Ciao.

This happened to me too, well second time around caught pinsir that kid caught a caterpie, first time I caught a beedrill and the winner caught a scyther.

14 Oct 2010 02:02 pm

Ugghhhh- I hate those contest.

15 Oct 2010 02:42 pm

how to win

the game bases winning on level and hp. catch a high level bug pokemon at full hp and you're almost sure to win. that's all it cares about. species makes very little difference.

15 Oct 2010 06:24 pm

^Yep. But it's difficult to know that from the beginning, and judging by the sheer difference in catching difficulty, it really does look weird how Pinsir or a Scyther can lose to a much lesser bug.

I like your comics. I don't get all the jokes but some of 'em are pretty funny. This one is hilarious because it's so true, it happens ALL THE TIME!!! UGH!!! And the phone calls with 'amazing'items for you, they drive me mad. Also, do you have any idea how hard it is o get a female Chikorita? UGH!! My friend had to hatch heaps of eggs just so I could get one because my Chikorita HAD to be a girl and I was too lazy to hatch my own out. But now I've got my Chikorita and I love her, I'm sure it's unhealthy to be so attached to a pokemon but... never mind.

Great comics! *thumbs up*

The glee pouring out of his face hurts me. But grumpy face next to him makes me giggle

22 Nov 2010 11:08 pm

Actually, the point of the contest to capture the pokemon with the highest level and to leave as much HP as possible

24 Dec 2010 02:12 pm

I once won it with a Volbeat. In third place was... a Volbeat. Point, Phoenix.

Just you watch, there will soon be a fishing contest in the games.

Then you'll just want to kill all those fishermen and their f***ing magikarps.

lol

LOL My sis caught a level 14 Butterfree and it got beat be a Paras

10 Mar 2011 02:57 pm

Tell me about it!

I HATE THOSE CONTESTS!

11 Mar 2011 12:09 am

Species matters

Species matters as well as level and remaining HP. The rare ones are best (pinsir, scyther, butterfree, beedrill, combee). I tend to bring someone with a paralyzing or sleeping move and status the first rare guy I encounter. Then I just huck pokeballs at it.

25 Mar 2011 11:39 pm

Hitpoints? Is THAT why I never won? I always False Swiped them to near death!

28 Mar 2011 05:31 pm

Oh the rage I have...

Four words: my Pinsir, your Caterpie. NOW.

05 Apr 2011 07:51 pm

@Nicholas: So true. I still remember when I failed to win with a Schyther and then I won the second time I tried with a Caterpie. I named it "Win"

01 Jun 2011 10:42 pm

sad

i caught a freckin beedrill and lost to a butterfree

08 Jun 2011 10:16 pm

so funny

I love your wacky cartoon style! it really depicts the emotion of the characters! i love it!

24 Jun 2011 04:49 am

i usually win these
hp, level, and color win it

15 Jul 2011 09:08 pm

???

What happened to his face in the second panel?

03 Aug 2011 08:37 pm

I entered my first bug contest when i was about eight years old, and i caught a scyther. it was level 13 and had about fifty health left, and the winner was a level 13 scyther. NOT MINE. I ended up calling it KILLRICK! after the amazing scyther's happy owner. I honestly meant it...

05 Aug 2011 02:40 pm

I'd like to see a caterpie crush your backbone with those things on its head.

28 Sep 2011 09:35 pm

AH

That is the scariest pinsir I've ever seen.

30 Sep 2011 09:18 pm

The bug catcher in the last panel looks like the bug catcher in MokePon, the one that just died...

18 Oct 2011 12:06 am

HAHahahha! awe... i always hated charlie and his amazing caterpie... couldnt even hustle the brat afterwards for that sunstone...

charlie's amazing caterpie! meet my amazing fist!

24 Oct 2011 11:36 pm

Weird, I caught a pinser on pretty low health, but came first ^^; I was all set to lose to a caterpie too.

12 Dec 2011 06:47 pm

I always won with carterpie

Also, the GAME.

17 Dec 2011 04:45 pm

this sucks...

Rage, fury, irritation, humiliation...

03 Jan 2012 11:46 pm

EVERY F TIME!

Happens every F***ing TIME!

04 Jan 2012 10:25 pm

FUUUUUDGE

it happened to me,i got second place and i caught a scyther..

19 Jan 2012 01:59 am

Lol

This happened to my brother in his nuzlocke. He caught a caterpie on the first turn and won xD

29 Jan 2012 04:38 am

ARG

Caught a godd**n SHIMY Scyther and lost to a Weedle. F**k off Charlie. *Shiny

14 Feb 2012 03:07 pm

wtf

ugh i hate when this happens.

18 Feb 2012 02:47 am

yup

bug contests are a b*tch like that

24 Mar 2012 02:54 am

OMFG I'VE ALWAYS HATED THAT

Happened to me all the GODDAMN time. At least I got back at the game with my prize-winning (purple) Wurmple. And then later, a Cascoon.

18 May 2012 03:25 am

@Nicholas: I think that they battle them. So yes, species will make a difference, but not if the Pokemon has low HP and could be knocked out with a Tackle or two

25 Jun 2012 05:29 am

The trick is to NOT beat it within an inch of its life (ie 1hp), they seem to take points off of that. Just put it into sleep and keep chucking balls.

26 Jun 2012 04:50 pm

I Hate These Contests...

I've entered a million of these contests and lost every single one...

11 Jul 2012 06:03 am

Attacks?

I thought you only could throw dirt at bug contests. Or was that just the safari? Its been soooo LOOONNNGGG!!!!

15 Jul 2012 01:56 pm

I think a better rollover text would be: "Third prize goes to Gary and his terrible Genesect."

08 Aug 2012 03:47 pm

I Hate these...

I hate them so much. But one time i was playing Pokemon Heart Gold and caught a Beedrill. NO HACKS OR CHEATING! I dont remember if a won or not though because i havent played in 2 years.

09 Aug 2012 05:10 am

@AuraX: Atleast the Safari Zones and Great Marsh aren't entirely pokemon-catching contests...if they were, we'd all be screaming at the Nidoran and Pidgey catchers who won.

07 Sep 2012 02:12 am

That's cause u have to capture with full health. Less health less poins :)

05 Dec 2012 04:12 am

I've been that guy

As it's been mentioned in the previous comments, HP plays a role into your score. So because caterpie's catch rate is so low, you can catch one at a high level at full HP and win the contest when you are in need of a sun stone.

19 Dec 2012 08:42 pm

Me too and its a beedrill!

22 Jan 2013 07:37 am

Shiny

I caught a Caterpie, and lost. A shiny Caterpie. Still bitter after a decade.

06 Apr 2013 11:27 pm

i hate them...

I hate those kinds of competitions, even though I have not been in one.
