Based on a conversation between my lil' brother and I. Sort of a continuation on the inability to catch fainted pokemon issue, but with a fresh spin to it where the ball contact makes for an accidental final strike. On a different note, someone asked me to draw a strip featuring Scyther many moons ago, so the first panel is dedicated to you, guy-whose-name-is-now-forgotten-by-me!
Ah yes, ye good auld False Swipe. Mean Look, Spore, Sword Dance, False Swipe plus held Leftovers -- and you can catch everything. If you have a smeargle, of course.
Nice one :D. I don't think anyone ever thought of a false swipe joke before :D.
What would a Heal Ball do then when it makes contact>
This is for sure one of the most hilarious comicstrips you've ever done. :D
Lol that's so funny^^
Yeah, I can see how chucking a ball at someone's face could knock out their last point of HP. xD
I would have never thought about that. I bet pokeballs actually hurt, given how hard and how fast they are thrown.
The idea's been done. No worries, though. :P
He probably did something wrong. Maybe you have to press the button harder?
Maybe Gold needs the look at the "Catching Pokemon" Book lawl owo
@Guest: Actually, you can't catch everything unless you replace one of those moves with Foresight. :p
@Guest: Mmm... Smeargle, so?
Reminds me of that one anime ep...
SCIZOR, FINISH WITH FALSE SWIPE!
Than it goes "poof" from being fainter
i dont want to sound trolly, but you got Aipom's stomach wrong.
OMG this is amazing. hahahaha one of your best yet!
I guess Gold forgot to press A+B+Down. xD
I've been following your comic from the start and this is one of your best! Simple but hilarious! Keep up the great work!
I would love to see a comic strip about how the pokemon sink into the ground after they're defeated.
This is hilarious, I love it. xD
make a comic about the inside of poke balls!
LOL that was hilarious. Interestingly enough, the move Fling fails when the pokemon itself attempts to throw an attached pokeball.
@DirkManlee: Great, now that's all i can see when I look at this comic.
Just a wierd looking Aipom belly surrounded by gibberish.
@Shoop-da-Whoop: Eh, ^ ^ v v < > < > B A Start is better. Works every time! :v
Imagine the heavy ball@Celestial_Wolf:
Anybody else noticing that after the pokeball hit the Aipom, it's JUST starting to open? owo
wondered how come you couldn't just capture the pokemon once it fainted. Oh well.
If you're trying to capture a pokemon and it does Take Down or any other damaging move when it is at low health and knocks itself out... also, the Legendaries when they take too long capture and end up knocking themselves out with Struggle ;) That's always so infuriating haha
has funny jokes.
Would be even more sucky if it was a shiny Aipom. ;)
Many a Pokemon would have been lost to me >:
You know I really wanna see a comic about Farfetch'd. It's one of the rarest and most crappy pokemon.... yet the comcept, a samurai duck, seems totally frackin' awesome. What's your take on this farfethed pokemon (see what I did there!?)
And then it magically sinks into the ground. :3
@Celestial_Wolf: Heal it, making it harder to catch
HAhahahah! thats so goddamn awesome!
False Swipe's name comes from a japanese swordfighting technique which consists of hitting the opponent with the blunt side of your blade. So Scyther should have been hitting aipom with the side of his hand-blade thingy.
Nevermind, that's probably just me being pedantic.
Rubber balls? -Waggles eyebrows- xD
Trainer used FLING!
It was super effective!
I hate it when I kill a pokemon before I catch it
Why would anyone catch an Aipom anyway? :I
@TheStranger: maybe cause it needs it concious to mess with its mind for the loyalty aspect?
