We all knew the risks

They have excellent night vision though.

No comic this week! I could go on about the reasons why that is the case and how I hath forsaken me duties and me glory, but since I technically haven't binded myself to any specific day or updating pace (more of a goal), this graph will hopefully serve as a compromise. Although I was planning to use it sooner or later as I had difficulties trying to get this into panel-form, so it was bound to happen one way or the other.

And I forgot to mention it last time, but thanks to everyone who took a small bit of their time to either comment here or notify me about images not showing. I can't go through my whole archive every day, and sometimes I can see the images while others clearly don't, so make a shout if things aren't the way they should!

Edit: To steer off some confusion, this graph is about the trainers within the game. Not the gamers.

A frown? That won't do. That won't do at all! I have failed my mission! I won't stand for this!

Next week shall be different.

11 Feb 2011 12:08 pm

I don't care if it's a graph, it's funny. :)

11 Feb 2011 12:08 pm

I suffer from insomnia! :o

11 Feb 2011 12:09 pm

I'm surprised 'bruised ego/pride' didn't make the list.

Also, if you don't have chlamydia, then you are playing the game wrong.

11 Feb 2011 12:28 pm

^ This.

11 Feb 2011 01:24 pm

I approve.

11 Feb 2011 01:34 pm

And now i have a new wallpaper for my computer

11 Feb 2011 02:05 pm

I'm surprized mal nutrition is not there, since the player doesn't eat

11 Feb 2011 02:22 pm

what? is the chlamydia a comment on how none of us will ever get laid?

11 Feb 2011 02:39 pm

pfft i'm glad to see no sti's floatin roung. that just shows somethin

11 Feb 2011 03:06 pm

i don't think tunnel vision is an actual health issue

11 Feb 2011 03:07 pm

Shouldn't something to do with them passing out when all their pokemon fail be on there?

11 Feb 2011 03:29 pm

If any of you dudes or dudettes want some chlamydia I will trade for gonorrhea.

Gotta catch em all!

11 Feb 2011 03:38 pm

Let's not forget about the frost bite.

11 Feb 2011 03:45 pm

This graph isnot about the gamers, but instead about the trainers about you encountered within the game. First post has been edited.

And there were other options I considered, malnutrition (or starvation/anorexia) was certainly one of them, but the graph is already long as it is!

11 Feb 2011 03:50 pm

Love it!

11 Feb 2011 03:56 pm

no risk of chlamydia coz trainers dont get laid

11 Feb 2011 04:02 pm

Delirium? Oh right, the trainers that think you're a pokemon

11 Feb 2011 05:20 pm

oh in that case why is delerium so low?

11 Feb 2011 08:26 pm

You've forgotten to add chronic overconfidence.

11 Feb 2011 08:53 pm

Isomnia? what are you talking about? *chugs bottle of sleeping pills*

13 Feb 2011 08:47 pm


This really made my day!

14 Feb 2011 09:46 am

funny once i realized it was about the npc trainers, maybe you could clarify that at the beginning somehow?

14 Feb 2011 03:59 pm

Don't really know how that would be done. I've never met pokemon gamers who consider themselves "trainers"(although the RPers or storytellers might get more involved), but as far as I'm concerned, the stuff like "Insomnia" and "Tunnel vision" should be a good indicator whether it's within the game or not.

16 Feb 2011 09:31 am

This graph raises an interesting question, since Pokemon actually DO get laid in-game! Off-screen, but still.

And the question is thus; do Pokemon get STD's? Like, when you're walking around with your Raticate in SoulSilver, is there a possibility it is infected with the Raticate clap?

Bookmarked under AWESOME.

First lemme say AWESOME site. Played these games long ago (ahhhh the kids of today are spoiled... Pokemon in Black & White... Those were the days...) and loved them then as much as I love them now that I found a site online where you can actually play them since a decade or so has passed since I stopped playing.

But I love the comics you've done and bookmarked the site for future visits.

Can't help but laugh at nearly all of them because I swear it's as if it was looking into my own mind when I was playing the games. Though I'm showing my age by seeing some of these newfangled creatures and wondering if I have alzheimers or have really been out of the loop for so long... O.o

Either way, great site and keep up the good work.

I'll be back...

And yes, I know you just read that in Arnold Schwarzenegger' voice. It's ok.

17 Feb 2011 03:37 pm

not bad can't wait till it updates.

18 Feb 2011 05:17 am


Where is "hearing things"? I recall many a person complaining about "hearing game music when the game has long been turned off".

18 Feb 2011 05:56 am


Do you mind if I post a couple of these on FunnyJunk? I'll post link to the archive in each pic. Will wait for response...

18 Feb 2011 09:04 am

@OldPlayer-NewFan: Thanks for your heartfelt comment! I'd like to see myself as a pokemon veteran myself as I've been through the whole series with Blue and Red in the beginning and Black 'n White around the corner, so seeing others with equal or even larger experience enjoying my work makes it all more worth the effort. Thanks!

@Aki: As I previously stated, this graph is about NPC trainers, and not the actual people playing the game. And while they do give pokemon good music, I haven't heard that the music sticks to their heads as often as you have, apparently. Could be worth investigating!

@Mystery Guest: You are free to post these strips wherever you like without my permission (claiming it as your own is obviously a no-no), but adding links back to my site (although all of them already have the url in the corner) would also be very helpful. I appreciate that you wanted to check with me first though!

18 Feb 2011 11:10 pm

That's ok. I always check before i post stuff from others

02 Apr 2011 06:59 pm

Actually, insomnia and tunnel vision are pretty common among players, too :P

26 May 2011 11:40 pm


I don't get it...

27 Jul 2011 06:30 pm

health risks

thank goodness its 0% for STDs

17 Oct 2011 06:48 pm

ahh.... this takes me back to when my sister embarrassed me infront of her friends saying that my best friends are ash and misty... i cried and ran like a good losser... good days

13 Oct 2012 01:20 am

Risk is the potential that a chosen action or activity will lead to a loss. The notion implies that a choice having an influence on the outcome exists. Thanks.

18 Apr 2013 04:55 pm
