The Minimalistic Tales: Pokemon

The Minimalistic Tales: Pokemon

by Nirvana star
A comic where I retell the story of the Pokémon anime using EXTREMELY simple sprites.

I'm more focused on the story than the quality of the pages, and while I don't aim to make the pages downright ugly, I will cut corners here and there.


This specific comic is about the Pokémon anime. I also have Minimalistic tales about
- The legend of Zelda
- The Super Mario series
- And The Ace Attorney series
On seperate comics.

@Nirvana star: Fair enough. I haven't made any comics so I wouldn't know about stuff like that.
@Shadow_Da_Hedgie:
Oh, there's a trick to that. The one in my regular comments is my real avatar. I edited the code for the comic to replace the author comment avatar from 'insert avatar here' to just a regular image.

Though I suppose that if anyone else became an author here, they would get that image as their avatar too. But since that's not very likely, I'll be fine.
Ash actually having some common sense, what? WHAT IS THIS MADNESS!

...AND WHY IS THE AUTHOR ICON DIFFERENT TO THE ONE IN THE USER COMMENTS D:
@TheJGamer:
For the same reason why I called Ash and Pikachu 'some loser' and 'Yellow zap rat' on episode 1, part 2.
I like how Ash holds a Voltorb in the first panel.

Also, why did you call Officer Jenny and Nurse Joy by just "cop" and "nurse?"
I've decided that from this point on, every first page of an episode will stop at the title card.
Which, in some cases, is not gonna be that much.

But seriously, why did they record new lines for the recap, it makes no sense.
@The_mad_one:

I see 'seen' as having scanned it with the Pokédex.

Think about it: in the games, when you talk to some random Pokémon in cities, they are not added to your Pokédex as 'seen' either.
What about Bulbasaur, Charmender, Squirtle, Nidorino, Onix, Mankey, Gengar, and (especially) Gyarados?
Ash's already seen about 3% of all the PKMN? Noice!

@Nirvana star: Yeah, about the "every first episode isn't spectacular." I'm going to have to challenge that... if I can find an example that contradicts it.
Pokemon unidentifiable, software patch required.
Ayup, I'll be doing this for every episode.

For now I'm only counting ash's catch rate for the Kanto dex, though.
If I ever manage to get to the Johto part of the series (oh, only about 116 episodes to go, no big deal) I'll expand it.

Yes, I'm still very optimistic about how far I'll go.
Sorry Ash, Ho-Oh is too god tier to be identified.

Also, "Lick of Friendship." Someone make that a meme.
LICK OF FRIENDSHIP
*lick of friendship*

I always thought Ho-Oh was like Pokemon God until Arceus showed up.
Credit for the last panel to filb.de, a german website where they have tons of screenshots from every episode of the anime.
I might just take the lazy way out for every shot of a city in this series, because there's a lot.

This isn't the final page of episode 1, though. A bonus page will be up soon.
I already have most of it finished so expect it to go up tomorrow.
Guess I just lost a twenty huh...
Rip Ash.
Astounding revelation. But hey, if he had to pay him back on way, then smiting the Spearow's with the force of Arce-er, PokeGod is not a terrible choice.
Crazy thought, Pikachu.
"BAck into the Gyarados-infested water you go!
Maybe we'll get a more competent protagonist..."
