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
awesome i did not know that. thanks i have a new flier now >:)
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.
...so....where's that video you were speaking of...?
Sorry, put the wrong link in my author comment. Try it again!
I wanted a flyer for my 5th Gen team and when I saw Golurk could learn, you can imagine the reaction. Grass types beware.
I looked at this comic and immediately the theme to "Big Guy and Rusty" was playing in my head.
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*
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...
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*
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.
Reminds me of the Iron Giant
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?
Agreeing with Anon here.
It's totally the Iron Giant in pokemon form. xD
so the trainer is hogarth or whatever the kid's name is?
WE DIG GIANT ROBOTS!
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.
okay i'll give it to you it was kinda nice
and yes this is the real blah not one of those fake fucks
Grab a beer man, here's a seat. We were just talking about you ;)
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!
It's because he's a superhero, duh.
But this is fucking great for the moveset. Just 'cause.
After I found out it could fly, Golurk suddenly became so much more awesome.
Yess, this definitely reminded me of The Iron Giant ; u ;
@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.
Lol this is exactly what I did
I just learned about this and this is just so "AWESOME! I Came To Play!"
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.
I AM THE REAL BLAH.
This is amazing! I wanna fly on a giant robot!
HEY BUMBAZZLE, YOU SHOULD MAKE A COMIC ABOUT WHAT Z2 & GWINGLE SAID. THE ZEKROM & KYUREM JOKES WOULD BE FUNNY.
ALSO A COMIC BOUT GOTHITELLE BEING LIKE GARDEVOIR WOULD BE NICE & FUNNY. HAVEN'T SEEN ANY YET.
EEEEEYEAHHHH! This is my favorite Gen V Pokemon. By far this is the best Pokemon that can learn Fly.
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
I'm the real Blah and so's my wife!
I really want a Glourk. I'm waiting for the sniny Golurk event for White.
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-''
Yeah, Golurk flying rules.
And so do your comics.
I'm going to get a Golurk JUST FOR THIS
Haha wow. Logic fail!
...is Golurk the first Ghost-type that can learn Fly? I don't think Driftblim can...
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
I ended up using Golurk more than my starter by the end of the game. BEST POKEMON EVER!!!
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.
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.
first thing i thought of when i learnt it could fly was the iron giant saying "super mannnnnn"
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
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.
@Blasthunter: I know right? it's weird how even the most smallest bird pokemon can learn fly XD
Has anyone ever noticed that when you use fly using any pokemon, the silhoutte is always a bird?
@Lady Darkrina: It CAN actually learn Fly d:
Golurk is boss.
golurk can learn fly..........Gundam it
Is it just me, or does this comic of a flying Golurk remind me of that animated movie, "The Iron Giant"?
Was I the only one thinking Regice meets Iron giant?
Sweet, when my Golette evolves it's learning fly
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
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.
Now i have a new backround XD
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
@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~
hahaha I did this with Rayquaza when I found out it could also learn fly
@assassinsquid: But it's a huge chinese dragon. It makes sense. Gaint heavy robots on the other hand...
Even better: It does it by turning its lower body into a god damn ROCKET
I find it amusing how the comic is about flying, while the comic ID in the URL ends with "747".
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
@that nobody loser shadic565 as a: Hilbert or Black or Touya or Blair.
