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

June 20th, 2012, 1:53 pm

I approve of this comic. A lot. :D

June 20th, 2012, 1:59 pm

...

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

June 20th, 2012, 2:12 pm

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

June 20th, 2012, 2:56 pm

LOL

June 20th, 2012, 2:59 pm

Porygon2 has de-volved.

June 20th, 2012, 4:13 pm

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

love the comics though

June 20th, 2012, 4:33 pm

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

June 20th, 2012, 5:06 pm

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

June 20th, 2012, 8:15 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)

June 21st, 2012, 4:39 am

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

June 21st, 2012, 9:16 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

June 21st, 2012, 11:41 am

Porygon: What the fuck?

June 21st, 2012, 1:34 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

In front of an ice cream truck?! Nooooo!

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

June 21st, 2012, 9:02 pm

Lol! I love the last panel so much

June 21st, 2012, 10:29 pm

The error message mark was a nice touch.

June 22nd, 2012, 3:50 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......

June 23rd, 2012, 10:27 pm

Porygon reverted back to his best form.

June 24th, 2012, 3:49 am

Yesss... back to the geniusness.

June 24th, 2012, 11:50 pm

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

June 25th, 2012, 8:23 am

Dragon Pokemon

@awsome guy: Its Druddigon.

June 25th, 2012, 10:45 am

@awsome guy:

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

June 28th, 2012, 2:27 pm

Druddigon

@awsome guy: You mean Druddigon?

June 28th, 2012, 6:06 pm

@Guest: That would be too easy.

June 28th, 2012, 10:45 pm

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

June 29th, 2012, 3:26 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.

July 1st, 2012, 8:21 am

update!

July 1st, 2012, 8:39 pm

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

July 6th, 2012, 1:58 pm

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

July 6th, 2012, 2:46 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!!!

July 7th, 2012, 2:30 pm

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

July 7th, 2012, 9:44 pm

"Patience"

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

July 8th, 2012, 1:02 am

De-evolution in progress

July 8th, 2012, 7:23 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.

July 10th, 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).

July 22nd, 2012, 8:26 pm

yeah

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