Well if it isn't another ability strip. How novel.

Actually, for a long time I've wanted to make something out of the Trace ability, while also giving Porygon some screentime. I did, however, never decide on an ability to run with. Then Craig emailed me his Rough Skin suggestion, and after throwing the idea back and forth, we reached a satisfying agreement, which we hope will please the rest of you lot too.

Any likelyness between this update and earlier strips is a complete coincidence and should be ignored entirely. Something that is also a complete coincidence is that both Porygon and Druddigon share colors and name endings, which too should be ignored entirely.

I've also put some effort into writing hovertexts for my comic strips, both new and old. So if hunting down secret messages is an active/dormant interest of yours, then you should let your cursor stay on the comic strip.

And of course, he has a Heads Up Display. Complete with Error message!

(this is probably one of my favorite strips that you've done, because this is a wonderful visual gag.)

Hilarious

That dragon pokemon that name escapes me is amazing

20 Jun 2012 01:53 pm

I approve of this comic. A lot. :D

20 Jun 2012 01:59 pm

...

@awsome guy: The name was in the comic...

20 Jun 2012 02:12 pm

I highly dislike Generation V Pokémon, but I must admit that your style made look Druddigon quite badass.

20 Jun 2012 02:56 pm

LOL

20 Jun 2012 02:59 pm

Porygon2 has de-volved.

20 Jun 2012 04:13 pm

@hfc2x: It's a Feraligatr dressed up as a Druddigon :P

love the comics though

20 Jun 2012 04:33 pm

It makes a little too much sense! XD I love this comic.

20 Jun 2012 05:06 pm

awesome... it's one of the best you've done

20 Jun 2012 08:15 pm

OMG TOTAL HILARITY

THIS IS SO FREAKIN' HILARIOUS!!! POKEMON DEVOLVING AND COMPUTER ALERT SIGN AND HILARIOUS AND YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!(YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY in tone of four year old child in front of ice cream truck)

21 Jun 2012 04:39 am

Ha ha ha, I love the way it just turned into a Porygon xD

21 Jun 2012 09:16 am

Heh, Trace can produce some really funny results.

And considering that the other user is Gardevoir, you can get some seriously funny results e.g. Thick Fat, Big Pecks, Liquid Ooze, Magma Armor, Moody, SHed Skin, Stench .... Damp :p

21 Jun 2012 11:41 am

Porygon: What the fuck?

21 Jun 2012 01:34 pm

Briljant, som alltid :) Rare Candy Treatment är en av mina favoritserier, och inte förrän nu upptäcker jag att upphovsmannen är svensk. Var har jag hållit hus? :P

*Reads Author's notes, Goes back and reads all hover texts from earlier comics*

21 Jun 2012 07:55 pm

In front of an ice cream truck?! Nooooo!

@Gamining King: PUSH HIM OUT OF THE WAY! WE DON'T WANT HIM RUN OVER!!!!!!

21 Jun 2012 09:02 pm

Lol! I love the last panel so much

21 Jun 2012 10:29 pm

The error message mark was a nice touch.

22 Jun 2012 03:50 am

Yep

You could do a whole series of these based on Trace. Imagine Porygon2 with Compound Eyes, Clear Body, Color Change, Chlorophyll, Dry Skin, Flame Body, Heavy Metal, Ice Body, Klutz, Liquid Ooze, Magma Armor, Mummy, Rock Head, Shed Skin, Shell Armor, Snow Cloak, Stench, Suction Cups, Tangled Feet, Thick Fat......

23 Jun 2012 10:27 pm

Porygon reverted back to his best form.

24 Jun 2012 03:49 am

Yesss... back to the geniusness.

24 Jun 2012 11:50 pm

i always thought Porygon2's name should've been Polygon

25 Jun 2012 08:23 am

Dragon Pokemon

@awsome guy: Its Druddigon.

25 Jun 2012 10:45 am

@awsome guy:

..It's in the comic, second panel...

28 Jun 2012 02:27 pm

Druddigon

@awsome guy: You mean Druddigon?

28 Jun 2012 06:06 pm

@Guest: That would be too easy.

28 Jun 2012 10:45 pm

@TPJerematic: Now see, this is why this site needs a "like" button for comments.

29 Jun 2012 03:26 pm

@Guest: technically it IS Polygon; Porygon's name was originally meant to be a subtle stab at the fact that some Asians have trouble with L's and R's.

01 Jul 2012 08:21 am

update!

01 Jul 2012 08:39 pm

you should make something on how the pokeball always seems to face away from the trainer no matter how it's thrown :P

06 Jul 2012 02:22 am

Porygon2 traced Druddigon's Rough Skin ability! Porygon2 devolved into Porygon!

06 Jul 2012 01:58 pm

@Ashitaka: I read Heavy Metal and immediately thought of Porygon2 in a band.

06 Jul 2012 02:46 pm

@Bumbazzle: When are you going to update the comic? It's been more then a week and I am not known for my patients. Please update soon!!!

07 Jul 2012 02:30 pm

@Gamining King: I agree with you they need to update this comic. My pacience is going down

07 Jul 2012 09:44 pm

"Patience"

@comicboy: I agree with the last two comments. Except for the whole misspelling of "patience" thing

08 Jul 2012 01:02 am

De-evolution in progress

08 Jul 2012 07:23 pm

@Rival: I remember sometime ago he said that his updates wouldn't be as frequent. I have no idea if that's still in place but I assume it is, so don't be too impatient. And it's patience, to those other 2.

10 Jul 2012 12:46 pm

@Rival: Sorry, I just thought it wouldn't matter. If you are going to be that close to detail, I'll check my spelling next time, even though I assumed it wouldn't matter in a pokemon comic comments section. I hope you're happy now (last sentence spoken in begrudging tone).

22 Jul 2012 08:26 pm

yeah

@Dragonicsoul: exactly what i was thinking, love the strip for the detail.
