The site has gotten some new changes now, where there's now two menus to maximize my need for clever buttons and links. Many thanks goes out to Ddraigenth and Asj, owners of the webcomics Penny Thoughts and Decision! Ichigo's choice respectively, for helping me out with the HTML coding and making it possible to pull off in the first place.

The explanation behind this week's strip is one of the biggest Pokémon oddities that has irked me for a good while. Every pokedex entry about Drowzee ellaborates on its strict diet or daily habit of eating the dreams of other creatures, but not once, in all of the pokemon games, has it been able to learn Dream Eater naturally. Can only be taught through the use of the TM. Ridiculous.

"He's eating that guy's dream right now!" XD awesome comic

Lols, I love it. Great job on spiffing up your site a little more. Also for getting 1000 fans :D

I AGREE THAT'S WACK.

Man..I don't see no dream eattin' You foolin'

Hmmm... I just thought of something... maybe moves are only attacks when they've been legalized and/or taught how to be used in battle,
so occurrences like when "Nidorina forgot Bite" won't count to the Pokemon's natural habits, thus explaining the Dream Eater thing... 'sept the part of the TM, maybe League Bureaucracy against allowing the move, or maybe Drowsee need extra help with learning the move?. (BTW: I'm not sure about HMs on this, any ideas?)

pokedex descriptions contain so many flaws XD its actually quite cool to be able to poke fun at them :)

05 Mar 2011 07:13 am

That is clearly a Psybeam

Heh.

But yes, this has ALWAYS bugged me too! It's just like how I recently learned Garchomp's Pokedex mentions it can fly, but it can't learn Fly! What the crap! Darn Pokedex is lying to us again.

Hilarious

This made me LOL pretty hard. That last panel is freakin hilarious.

05 Mar 2011 11:13 pm

Rofl, Drowzee looks like a creeper xD

06 Mar 2011 07:07 am

It dont make sense sometimes

I know another example: Why can't Espeon, the sun pokemon that can learn sunny day and definitely morning sun, learn solarbeam.

Its probably because its reserved for Leafeon, but still...

EVERYTHING WE KNOW IS A LIE!!!!!

EVERYONE

It's a wikidex that's why it's broken.

23 Mar 2011 05:51 pm

Oh yeah. I have issues with that too. It's the DREAM EATER pokemon! Freaking let it learn dream eater, it should have been its signature move since Gen I.

DEXBUSTED

Call the DEXBUSTERS!!!

14 Jun 2011 07:07 pm

It says it in the fucking Pokedex too.

26 Jul 2011 08:29 pm

It's all one big damn conspiracy!!!! Nothing the Pokedex says is real!! Why? The League. But what are they hiding from us...

07 Aug 2011 08:08 pm

Aren't there hacks that correct these issues? If there aren't someone should definitely make one.

And Jumpluff cant learn spore... nintendo needs to get their shi.. stuff together.

Egg Moves

Hmm, I wonder, can it be passed on through breeding, because if it can then it might make more sense.

@Vye Brante: "Fly, you fools"

I'm pretty sure Fly has more than one meaning

10 Jun 2012 04:15 pm

Move tutor: "No, I'm pretty sure he's inserting a giant purple worm parasite into that mans ear, not eating his dream. I CAN teach him the parasite move, though."


Also, though long deliberation, I have decided that the HM "Fly" does not teach a Pokemon how to "fly", but teaches an already airborne Pokemon how to fly with passengers, something that would be decidedly different from regular solo flight.

24 Jun 2012 08:36 am

Oh yeah?

Then explain exactly how the use of Fly in-battle works with that theory, considering that it is simply attacking from the sky, something any airborne Pokèmon could do easily without learning how to fly with passengers.

I love these comics xD also awesome profile pic

Almost as bad a Ferrothorn and Ferroseed not learning rapid spin despite the fact their sprites rapidly spin
