Battle waits for no bike

Call an ambulance, you dolt.

I run, I surf, I bike, but the challenger's glare holds me in a frozen prison. I avoid eye contact, but they approach nonetheless. I use up all my repels, but they are lured from the sidelines, undeterred. Why are these people talking to me?

I quickly realised that my panel planning could have used less flaws, but unless it isn't clear, the biked stopped because the boy noticed him. Not the other way around. But I am assured that most pokémon gamers would realise that, because as we all know, stares cannot stop moving objects. Yet.

I am also not entirely sure if I came up with this idea myself or if someone suggested it many suns ago whose name I've now forgotten. If anyone in the audience believes that I've taken advantage of their idea submission in the most sinister way conceivable, please address this subject in an email and I shall happily slap together an apologetic acknowledgement.

Trainers' stares are magic.

Just be glad it wasn't on a downhill slope.

28 Mar 2012 02:42 pm

:O it all makes sense now

28 Mar 2012 02:52 pm

I hate that x'D haha

28 Mar 2012 02:58 pm

I love trainer battles, but sometimes, omg just let me ride my bike. LOL.

Loved is one.

That must huuuurt.

Trainer Logic

Notice how ALL the trainers have the ability to stop YOU, but YOU dont have the ability to stop ALL the other trainers!

@Jeremy: Just like how YOU go on a quest while THEY stay in one spot, despite that some of THEM say that their going on a quest to be better then anyone else. Plus, am I the only one that notices that while they stay in the same spot, they can still level their 'mons up. I think they may be in team rocket. That must explain why they have the secret stopping ability like team rocket members! Duhhn, duhhn, duhhhh. (If you don't get it, play PTD.)

It gets even worse when you squint and imagine the last panel's shadow to be blood.

28 Mar 2012 04:48 pm

You should be able to run away from trainers! As long as they don't catch you, you don't need to battle them... until at one point you stop then they all catch and up and all want a battle at once and it would become 'You VS The World'

Enemy Trainer used GLARE. RareCandyTreatment is Paralyzed!

29 Mar 2012 12:05 am

While I love a good battle, it always seems that whenever I DON'T want a battle BOOM there's another one!

29 Mar 2012 06:02 am

I think it's obvious how trainers do it: they are all psychic and don't even know it!

30 Mar 2012 03:45 pm

Opponent Trainer used Glare! You are paralyzed! Opponent Trainer wants to battle! You swear loudly!

30 Mar 2012 04:26 pm

That's about right. XD

30 Mar 2012 11:16 pm

@shadowmaster, what if you ran from every trainer in the game, but then your finger slipped and, APOCALYPSE!

31 Mar 2012 12:19 pm

This is why the bike trail is so dangerous...

31 Mar 2012 12:59 pm

@Shadow Master: Red ran away! Wild TRAINER is pissed! Wild TRAINER joins other million TRAINERs to form MOB! MOB beat Red to a pulp! Red died!

31 Mar 2012 10:10 pm

omg lol i hate it when that happens :P

one time i was playing heartgold and i found a pokeball with a pokeball in it then i checked my invintory and i had 99 pokeballs AWSOME GLITCH!

03 Apr 2012 12:15 am

Just as Bad with...

Random Pokemon Battles... riding along suddenly... RANDOM POKEMON BATTLE! XD That stare is magic... I swear, I want to be able to stare at someone going some odd MPH on a bike and have them screech to a stop XD

03 Apr 2012 07:26 am

Stairs however...

Stares can't stop moving objects but stairs probably could!

03 Apr 2012 12:28 pm

I get it now!

All trainers have a guardian angel (psychic Pokemon) that controls their life!

03 Apr 2012 01:07 pm


Have you ever noticed that when you are at the Poke Center, and you talk to Nurse Joy every NPC freezes? Sometimes mid step. Can you imagine a Trainer turning around to witness this time warp...

03 Apr 2012 07:04 pm

@AxelThePokegodTrainer: Does that mean Bug Catchers are masochists?

07 Apr 2012 03:31 pm

That explains why the trainer is never on his bike during battle lol

08 Apr 2012 10:40 pm

@Keys2tkingdom: It has no effect!

08 Apr 2012 10:41 pm

@Pikachu025: lol omg that actually makes sense!

12 Apr 2012 05:40 pm

I think it was you who I told the whole, the guy is walking and suddenly his shoes get glued to the ground, see the trainer trying to move before trainer gets to him, but still fails and is then slumped over as the trainer says, hey, you want to battle? If that at all sounds familiar, then it was me lol, which then I'm honored but if not, it was someone else, either way this is great!

15 Apr 2012 12:24 am

*riding bike*
Random voice: Wild ratata appeared.
Dum dum Dum dum.
Trainer: what the hell was that?

19 Apr 2012 11:58 am


Maybe if you moved the boy to the left, and made the trainer screech after him, it'd make more sense.

but yeah, us true trainers know what's up.

Yep! I tossed that idea out in June of 2011. A long time ago so I'm not surprised you forgot. You don't have to credit me at all, I just brought it up because little stuff like this burns me up when I can't remember the answer.

at point like these they need to add the ability to yell: GO THE F**K AWAY
