How'd he get a gun?
If I got things right in my mind,these guys must be humans as well.One of them might know how to craft a pistol.

I was holding off on commenting until this point (I believe I've been reading since page 25) but that right there is a pokemon pointing a gun at another pokemon. I have no idea how to feel about it but I'm officially invested.

@Malc Modnar: It's not really meant to be super realistic; this is supposed to be a really cartoony comic anyway. I will keep trying though.

OBJECTION!

Not about the presence of a firearm - I can see the value of weapons in a society where some of its members can spit fire or melt brains with a stern glare.

My concern is with the DESIGN of the weapon, specifically, its grip and sights. The gun is clearly designed with a slanted pistol grip and trigger guard, shaped to fit a roughly human hand. While this works for humans, this design would be VERY difficult to use for most species of Pokemon. Sure, a custom-made version MIGHT, in theory, exist, but it makes far more sense that mass-produced firearms would have a generalized design, likely with some sort of lever trigger so it could be used with a wide variety of appendages.

The ironsights have a similar problem - that particular layout works by exploiting human binocular vision, which would only be useful for pokemon with a pair of forward-facing eyes. Pokemon with a different number of eyes, eyes in different positions (such as any non-predatory species likely has), or some other primary sense would find such a sight next to useless.

So while I like the idea of a more modernized PMD setting, I don't think something a complex as a semiautomatic firearm would be identical to one found in our world.

Is this a needlessly specific criticism? Yes. Will I continue to defend it? YES.

(Oh, the comic is still very interesting, by the way. I'm just obsessing over details.)

If this is in my PMD timeline, this is not a stretch in the slightest. (Mine has the main games separated by PMD Mitigation, the pokemon win, and then human artefacts are spread around and we have the PMD world.)

Now would be the perfect time for a surprise attack, just saying
Based on the face, I'm not sure Raichu knows what the heck a gun is XD

And it's a really good gun too, you draw them well.
My guns look ridiculous, which is why none of my comics has them 8D

I have a lot of things to say about this page. First of all, I know the idea of guns in PMD is not going to be everyone's thing. In fact, it was the sole reason that, back in early 2014 when I first thought of this comic, I was unsure if I was even going to post it. But I'm going to tell you this; the gun thing is very important to the story. Without it, big parts of the plot would kinda fall apart. So don't worry, I know where this is going. Just trust me on this.
