PMD: Victory Fire

Sometimes the most interesting stories come from the strangest places. Victory Fire starts off as most Mystery Dungeon comics do, a human comes to the pokemon world. But THAT'S where the similarities end....

New pages are posted on Tuesdays and Fridays, please check back :)

I really can't see a Focus Blast doing that much damage. It has to have been an injury he got from a while ago that Gengar's attack somehow agitated. That line from the last page kind of hints at it "PLEASE, I DIDN'T MEAN TO-" plus, he's a legendary, they are kind of built for taking a beating under almost all situations, mortality or immortality aside at least. It would make more sense if he somehow got it after the battle that happened in Rise Of Darkrai, or after, fighting with Cresselia, taking on every gym leader in Sinnoh, and then hit by that Leaf Blade in the chest from Ash's Septile during the Sinnoh Pokemon League without ever going to a pokemon center until Tobias won. Possibly even during the final fight against team Poke'pals where he was probably slammed by that spacial rend inside that portal. But one well aimed Focus Blast? Nuh-uh, I refuse to believe it, I bet it was from Victini or from Cipher torturing him over a long period of time, and Gengar just reopened the wound.

Also notice that his chest scar, shackle bruises, and XD00 mark are the same coloration. If it was from focus blast, the discoloration would be way more pronounced.
@PJSam: I've been there. And I've actually read that too much coughing can hurt you - although it's more likely you'll throw out a muscle than actually bruise your ribs. Still, him coughing up *blood* seems to point to something else being wrong on the inside.

Which leads me to ask: Is Gengar just that powerful/untrained/powerful and untrained, is Darkrai just that weakened, or is Focus Blast really, really banned-from-Pokemon-fights-worthy dangerous?
I saw Chatot. The old guild music pops into my brain.
But Darkrai hasn't exactly reverted completely, so he hasn't yet turned back into a shadow pokemon. He can still level up before that happens.
Actually Shadow Pokemon don't level up. When you Purify them then they get all of the XP they have accumulated in one lump sum.

Insert MacGyver Theme song here!

This is the perfect moment for nightmarish hallucinations to begin!

Dark thoughts: "You should kill your friends...they are only holding you back from your true potential!"
Darkrai: "No, I can't do that, I won't...I-"
XD Shadow mode activate!
Darkrai :"...but it would be so easy, killing them will provide me with experience points, which might make me go up a another level."

Tyler Durden enters the forest

T.D: "You're the all-singing, all-dancing crap of the world."

Hey what the-! this isn't Fight Club, this is Pokemon. Shoo now! Go away Tyler Durden, you're a terrible person and you'll only make things worse for everyone!

You know I've had a chest cold all day and it made me think. Maybe the Focus Blast didn't hurt his ribs, maybe it just made him need to cough and the coughing is damaging his ribs. Cause I have been coughing all day and I feel like my lower back is about to snap off.

I'm the kind of person who would move three inches to the left and find it hilarious when nobody notices.
"But Hermione, *why* do you have to go to the library?"

@PJSam: That thought...occurred to me as well.
thats me
Sorry, Darkrai, buddy, friend, pal, chum. That's the sign of losing your friends.

I bet that when they went away to build raft, Darkrai would of coughed up more blood, and he died because no one was there to help him. Mew

I sure hope nothing bad happens to Darkrai while they're away.
...Darkrai, stop making me have feels today. You're too adorable and pathetic.

Human ingenuity!

Also, Jen's expression in panel 3 is... unsettling.

She has seen things. Terrible things.

About Darkry
He needs healing pulse, pronto

Coughing up blood is always a good sign of things to come.

@PJSam I'm less worried about the broken rib then I'm at Darkrai's reaction to Gangar.

He is acting like an abuse victim, which makes me think that pumpkin girl is going to get a really hard talking to and by talking I"m think her own little sister beating her within an inch of her life.

Because that little line was sooo telling and I for one am going to be so happy when the older sister gets what's coming to her. I'm going to sit there and watch with popcorn and charge admission to watch.
