It's for the best if we don't talk about the Fighting Gem.

Hello and welcome to another session of me fooling around. The topic of today is cavern gems, hope you'll have a good time.

I'll see if I can have some simplier strips up and ready when Mondays comes around, along with the usual Friday updates. Time will have to show if I'll land myself a heart failure or not!

06 Jun 2011 10:25 am

Props for actually having all these as a single strip rather than stretching them out to several updates like I'm sure many would.

06 Jun 2011 10:29 am

Too many updates for saying essentially the same thing.

I thought about doing the same thing with Hitmonchan, Gastly and Diglett back in the day, but those strips got a larger share of my attention and effort, so I felt it to be appropriate to post them separately.

Dude you should do one with the wings too!

You found a resist wing! *Resists*
You found a muscle wing! *Shows off muscles*
You found a pretty wing! *Flirts*
You found a genius wing! *Acts smart*

06 Jun 2011 11:31 am

There's a strip planned for the wings, actually! But not in the way you had in mind I'm afraid.

i love your comics, they always make my day! thank you for posting! (and keeping my smile in check) :)

It's cool psychic gem.
I can "dig" it.

*ba dum pish*

06 Jun 2011 02:12 pm

Totally heard "come back" in a titanic-ending kind of tone :D
Also more consistent facial art work in this one, nice improvement.

Two seconds later, the Pokemon trainer ended up burnt to a crisp.

CAN'T... STOP... LAUGHING! *laughs until unconscious*

06 Jun 2011 03:46 pm

These made me laugh.

But... Needs moar Blah :(

What's brethren?

06 Jun 2011 04:29 pm

Just a finer word for 'brothers', the fellow mates of the psychic gem still trapped in the soil. I should have checked the spelling though, but for once it seems like I was right on the first try!

You rang?

07 Jun 2011 11:52 am

awesome as usual

Dragon ball z cameo. hilarious. think you can do a strip on N's ability to talk to pokemon?

07 Jun 2011 12:51 pm


But this one sailed straight over my head. Would someone care to explain, por favor? Googling did not help...

07 Jun 2011 08:15 pm

I didn't get the Dragon Gem reference. The rest were amazing though!

And to think I was selling them all off... But really, they aren't that great an item. Just one attack is boosted, as opposed to a, say, Draco Plate which is a permanent boost

07 Jun 2011 10:30 pm


You demand one.
The dragon gem is supposedly a dragon ball from Dragonball (z, z: kai, ect.) and the kid is either gohan or goku, two characters from the show(s)

08 Jun 2011 02:10 am


Just awesome.
'Nuff said.

08 Jun 2011 02:50 pm

DK: In Black and White you can find gems, that increase a special type. Gems that increase ground-type are called ground-gems, for example.

@Psycho Blah

Three words: Flying Gem Archeops.

Use Acrobatics. Flying Gem activates and is used up, which also activates Acrobatics' boost, giving that first attack....uh....lemme math it out...effectively 165 base power. Plus STAB.

All subsequent Acrobatics are 110 BP, plus STAB.



So yeah, most of the gems do suck, but if you have nothing else to put in there, they can certainly be a useful surprise. And of course Flying Gem + Acrobatics = pain. Just a matter of finding that niche.

Why does Gokuu/Gohan have hooker lips?

09 Jun 2011 03:44 pm

Keep up the good work
(o)(o) Whoooooooo!

Note that in Doubles/Triples/VGC, Normal Gem suddenly makes Explosion a viable move again.

11 Jun 2011 03:46 pm

Heh. DBZ.

07 Aug 2011 06:49 pm

Surprised you didn't use the poison gem, if I may.

27 Aug 2011 06:18 pm

Other gem effects

This is just to be random, but I'll fill in some more. Water Gem would probably be wet, the Ice Gem is probably just ice, the Fire Gem would probably be very hot, the Rock Gem & Ground Gem probably the only REAL gems for sure...that's all I got so far.

17 Oct 2011 06:23 pm

hey i found a rock gem...

whats it do?

it has rock essence..

lmao wtf?!

03 Jan 2012 07:01 am

Holy Crap

09 Apr 2012 01:24 pm

Ground Gem: NO! PUT ME BACK!

10 Jun 2012 09:05 pm


in order to understand the last one you need to know wut dragon ball z is.

11 Jun 2012 05:15 pm

I demand a sequel. This was too good.

Ice Gems

You could make so much money off of ice gems! And rock gems too!
