Coup de grâce

Note to self: invest in rubber balls.

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.

26 Aug 2011 10:38 am

Nice one :D. I don't think anyone ever thought of a false swipe joke before :D.

26 Aug 2011 11:41 am

What would a Heal Ball do then when it makes contact>

26 Aug 2011 11:46 am


This is for sure one of the most hilarious comicstrips you've ever done. :D

26 Aug 2011 12:26 pm

Lol that's so funny^^

26 Aug 2011 02:27 pm

Yeah, I can see how chucking a ball at someone's face could knock out their last point of HP. xD

26 Aug 2011 02:52 pm


I would have never thought about that. I bet pokeballs actually hurt, given how hard and how fast they are thrown.

26 Aug 2011 05:01 pm

The idea's been done. No worries, though. :P

He probably did something wrong. Maybe you have to press the button harder?

26 Aug 2011 05:10 pm

Maybe Gold needs the look at the "Catching Pokemon" Book lawl owo

26 Aug 2011 05:11 pm

@Guest: Actually, you can't catch everything unless you replace one of those moves with Foresight. :p

26 Aug 2011 07:31 pm

@Guest: Mmm... Smeargle, so?

26 Aug 2011 07:52 pm

Reminds me of that one anime ep...

26 Aug 2011 09:40 pm

Than it goes "poof" from being fainter

26 Aug 2011 10:25 pm

i dont want to sound trolly, but you got Aipom's stomach wrong.

27 Aug 2011 04:00 am

OMG this is amazing. hahahaha one of your best yet!

27 Aug 2011 06:17 pm

I guess Gold forgot to press A+B+Down. xD


27 Aug 2011 09:05 pm

I've been following your comic from the start and this is one of your best! Simple but hilarious! Keep up the great work!

28 Aug 2011 08:14 am

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

28 Aug 2011 09:04 pm


make a comic about the inside of poke balls!

28 Aug 2011 09:42 pm

LOL that was hilarious. Interestingly enough, the move Fling fails when the pokemon itself attempts to throw an attached pokeball.

29 Aug 2011 09:27 am

@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

30 Aug 2011 02:10 am

haha *smack*

30 Aug 2011 05:13 pm

Imagine the heavy ball@Celestial_Wolf:

30 Aug 2011 09:07 pm

Anybody else noticing that after the pokeball hit the Aipom, it's JUST starting to open? owo

30 Aug 2011 10:12 pm

I always

wondered how come you couldn't just capture the pokemon once it fainted. Oh well.

31 Aug 2011 04:43 am

Another Good One

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

This Site

has funny jokes.

01 Sep 2011 08:54 pm

Would be even more sucky if it was a shiny Aipom. ;)

02 Sep 2011 04:05 am

Many a Pokemon would have been lost to me >:

02 Sep 2011 03:41 pm

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!?)

04 Sep 2011 06:54 pm


And then it magically sinks into the ground. :3

06 Sep 2011 01:28 am

@Celestial_Wolf: Heal it, making it harder to catch

12 Sep 2011 01:01 am

Aipom Fainted!


17 Oct 2011 10:56 pm

HAhahahah! thats so goddamn awesome!

28 Jan 2012 08:27 pm


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.

28 Jun 2012 07:28 pm

Rubber balls? -Waggles eyebrows- xD

17 Aug 2012 12:50 am

Trainer used FLING!
It was super effective!

07 Oct 2012 12:38 am

I hate it when I kill a pokemon before I catch it

21 Mar 2013 06:49 pm


Why would anyone catch an Aipom anyway? :I

30 Apr 2013 09:39 pm

@TheStranger: maybe cause it needs it concious to mess with its mind for the loyalty aspect?
