This is more of a homage than an actual joke dedicated to one of my new favorites from Gen V, and the fact that it can learn Fly is a rather common fact now. With its sturdy physique, unique typing and surprisingly aerodynamic body, Golurk is now my main choice of sky transportation. Booyah.

In other news, Austin Matthews made a short video dub of Kyogre - The Worst Roomate. I generally don't like dubs of comic strips, but once the intro started rolling I couldn't help but grin. Check it out if you have 18 seconds to spare.

I swear, this is my reaction in comic form. XD

10 Jun 2011 01:23 am

awesome i did not know that. thanks i have a new flier now >:)

10 Jun 2011 01:40 am

I don't like Golurk much. Its physique just feels out somehow. In fact the only American-designed Pokémon I come close to liking are the Vanillish family.

Comic made me laugh though.

10 Jun 2011 01:53 am

...so....where's that video you were speaking of...?

10 Jun 2011 02:18 am


Sorry, put the wrong link in my author comment. Try it again!

10 Jun 2011 03:14 am


I wanted a flyer for my 5th Gen team and when I saw Golurk could learn, you can imagine the reaction. Grass types beware.

10 Jun 2011 03:27 am


I looked at this comic and immediately the theme to "Big Guy and Rusty" was playing in my head.

10 Jun 2011 04:51 am

The biggest "You can learn WHAT now!?" was definitely when I found out Rhydon could learn SURF.

"You can swim? But... you're weak to water... so you must..." *brain-splosion*

10 Jun 2011 05:29 am

Mmm... the two choices for my fly Pokemon are a weedy looking robin thing or a flying Jewish death machine? Let me pretend to think about this...

10 Jun 2011 05:33 am

Golruk is one of my absolute 5th gen favourites >w< and the very fact it can fly makes it... EPIC.
Like, Gurren Lagann EPIC. *w*

10 Jun 2011 06:18 am

I never really liked Golurk. Just because I never really use his type.

Besides, my fliers have always been legendaries. Flying into town on Zekrom pretty much shouts, "Yeah, I'm Unova's legendary hero, what of it?" from the instant you roll into town.

The comic is still pretty good though.

10 Jun 2011 07:11 am

Golurk = Awesome.

Scientific fact.

10 Jun 2011 08:50 am

Reminds me of the Iron Giant

10 Jun 2011 09:04 am

this is the exact situation i was in while playing pokemon white. the unfezant was even the same gender in this comic. have you been following me?

10 Jun 2011 09:08 am

Agreeing with Anon here.
It's totally the Iron Giant in pokemon form. xD

10 Jun 2011 10:02 am



10 Jun 2011 01:22 pm

so the trainer is hogarth or whatever the kid's name is?

10 Jun 2011 01:22 pm


10 Jun 2011 01:22 pm

It may learn Fly, but I still wouldn't teach it an HM move if I were to put it on a competitive team.

...But that does look awesome I admit.

10 Jun 2011 03:19 pm

okay i'll give it to you it was kinda nice

and yes this is the real blah not one of those fake fucks

10 Jun 2011 03:33 pm

Grab a beer man, here's a seat. We were just talking about you ;)

10 Jun 2011 04:20 pm


I really lucked out with this.one my first play of white I was doing a nuzlocke run (pokemon on hard mode. google for more info) I got to a point where I had no pokemon that could learn fly....or so i thought. Golurk to the rescue!

10 Jun 2011 04:27 pm

It's because he's a superhero, duh.

But this is fucking great for the moveset. Just 'cause.

10 Jun 2011 05:04 pm

After I found out it could fly, Golurk suddenly became so much more awesome.

10 Jun 2011 09:43 pm

Yess, this definitely reminded me of The Iron Giant ; u ;

10 Jun 2011 09:53 pm


@Z2 I taught Kyurem Fly so I could fly to the town where all the people think Kyurem is a monster that will eat them in the night.

11 Jun 2011 06:04 am

Lol this is exactly what I did

11 Jun 2011 09:33 am

I just learned about this and this is just so "AWESOME! I Came To Play!"

11 Jun 2011 10:46 am

Golurk instantly became my favorite pokemon of all 5 Generations, almost soon as I saw it (everything is better with robots). The fact that it's a FLYING robot is just icing on the cake...and there's actually two flying robots in B/W, since Genesect learns Fly as well (technically doesn't exist yet, but we all know it's there). Golurk looks far more awesome while doing it, though.

11 Jun 2011 03:08 pm


11 Jun 2011 05:03 pm

This is amazing! I wanna fly on a giant robot!

11 Jun 2011 05:07 pm



11 Jun 2011 09:13 pm

EEEEEYEAHHHH! This is my favorite Gen V Pokemon. By far this is the best Pokemon that can learn Fly.

11 Jun 2011 09:39 pm

I actually knew about Golurk's strange ability before the games were released, since I was checking out it's movepool on Bulbapedia xD. Great comic though, you HAD to do something like this

12 Jun 2011 06:58 am

I'm the real Blah and so's my wife!

12 Jun 2011 08:15 am


I really want a Glourk. I'm waiting for the sniny Golurk event for White.

12 Jun 2011 10:29 am

lmao I didn't know they can fly!
(I don't know much about the pokemon >_<)
lol golurk reminds me of a bakugan,
I forgot what it was called....
but they look exactly alike -o-''

12 Jun 2011 11:32 am

Yeah, Golurk flying rules.

And so do your comics.

12 Jun 2011 08:33 pm


I'm going to get a Golurk JUST FOR THIS

12 Jun 2011 09:13 pm

Haha wow. Logic fail!

...is Golurk the first Ghost-type that can learn Fly? I don't think Driftblim can...

12 Jun 2011 09:30 pm


Didn't know ryhdon/ryhorn/rypherior could learn surf. Need to get Black/White. btw. superblah, yes driftblim can learn fly: http://www.awkwardzombie.com/index.php?page=0&comic=060611

13 Jun 2011 12:54 pm

I ended up using Golurk more than my starter by the end of the game. BEST POKEMON EVER!!!

13 Jun 2011 10:19 pm

If memory serves me correctly, I believe the reason Golurk can learn Fly is as part of an homage to the old giant robot animes, like Mazinger, Getter Robo, Gigantor, etc. etc.

13 Jun 2011 10:31 pm

Yeah, New flying pokemon. When I restart my Black(I has both but White has all my good poke's in it) I'm totally using a Golurk.

15 Jun 2011 12:13 pm

first thing i thought of when i learnt it could fly was the iron giant saying "super mannnnnn"

17 Jun 2011 03:38 pm

Lol it'd be funny if Golurk actually could learn fly. Then dragon type pokemon and bird type pokemon wouldn't have to get so tired from flying you all over the place XD

26 Jun 2011 08:31 pm

This is one of the many "You can learn WHAT NOW!?!s" That surprise me. But the most surprising thing is that Pidgey and the first evolutions of most bird Pokemon can learn FLY. I know it may seem weird because of their types, but seriously, Pidgey is SO FREAKING TINY.

29 Jun 2011 01:43 am


29 Jun 2011 07:54 am

@Blasthunter: I know right? it's weird how even the most smallest bird pokemon can learn fly XD

30 Jun 2011 10:43 pm



13 Jul 2011 01:42 am


Has anyone ever noticed that when you use fly using any pokemon, the silhoutte is always a bird?

13 Jul 2011 05:20 pm

@Lady Darkrina: It CAN actually learn Fly d:

11 Aug 2011 05:08 am


11 Aug 2011 09:32 pm


Golurk is boss.

26 Aug 2011 09:34 pm

golurk can learn fly..........Gundam it

27 Aug 2011 06:20 pm

Flying Golurk = Cartoon Movies?

Is it just me, or does this comic of a flying Golurk remind me of that animated movie, "The Iron Giant"?

28 Aug 2011 08:55 pm


Was I the only one thinking Regice meets Iron giant?

08 Sep 2011 04:47 pm

Sweet, when my Golette evolves it's learning fly

11 Sep 2011 07:42 pm

Hey everybody!! Look at the sky!!

It's a plane!

It's a bird!!

No!!! it's a gigantic crystal aquamarine colored ghost Pokemon!!!

Yeeeaa... Wait, WHAT!!!!??? O_o

16 Sep 2011 09:00 am

I played a pokemon white nuzlocke. And for some reason, every flying type I touch DIES!

I was so happy when I found out Golurk learns Fly.

28 Oct 2011 06:32 pm

Now i have a new backround XD

21 Dec 2011 03:25 am

lol its true i found out when i was teaching it to my Archeops, i was like wdf how is that possible.. You found out in the new movie of pokemon lol

01 Jan 2012 09:52 pm


@Fenrir: My first thought was of Megas XLR...

Livin in U-no-va
fighting plas-ma from afar
You catch them here
on your giant golem ghooost~

29 Mar 2012 05:09 pm

hahaha I did this with Rayquaza when I found out it could also learn fly

09 Apr 2012 01:33 pm

@assassinsquid: But it's a huge chinese dragon. It makes sense. Gaint heavy robots on the other hand...

18 May 2012 03:38 pm

Even better: It does it by turning its lower body into a god damn ROCKET

25 Jun 2012 09:52 am

I find it amusing how the comic is about flying, while the comic ID in the URL ends with "747".

06 Jul 2012 09:25 pm

Golruk can learn fly becuse of this words on it's data:
It flies across the sky at mach speeds.
That's wath it said

16 Nov 2012 04:08 pm

@that nobody loser shadic565 as a: Hilbert or Black or Touya or Blair.
