The Extreme Team!

by CapedLuigisYoshi
A group of Pokemon highest in each of their respective stats. An evil Magikarp with a team and a plan. And a heaping dose of sarcasm. Hilarity fails to ensue.

More seriously, this was a pretty early work I did, and the first real big comic project I got into. It was discontinued for a while, but now it's officially concluded. In a sense.

@silent dee: Technically, that's not Swordy. That's RKInventor, cousin to PikaMario99. (And of course, they're the reason why this segment was called Two Cousins Forum, beause they had said forum for a while and I was uploading there at the time.)

Why does he look exactly like Swordy? Because Swordy in KvtS was originally supposed to be his insert character (back when Lazor was supposed to be PikaMario99's own self-insert).

Yes I remember this crap from a decade ago.
holy moo cows
MATRIX!
WHAT THE HECK
WHAT THE HECK IS SWORDY DOING HERE?
cool
I love comic crossovers.
@FieryExplosion: Oh hey, always kinda weird but nice to hear from someone who was actually reading this.

I definitely understand the nostalgia for the long-gone sprite comic era that this spawned from - heck, it stands as a remnant of the general sprite comic style of the NSider forums, which has long since ceased to be. Especially with some of the old references to stuff from there (seriously, I'd be surprised if Jigglypuff and his Merry Band of Idiots has any archives anymore).

Glad you enjoyed it, and hope you get to enjoy plenty of better comics in the years to come.
and so my nostalgia finally ended
And so, after so long, The Extreme Team is finally over. I know this comic is several months late, but give me a break, I was away from SmackJeeves for quite some time. (What is this? Where am I? Did I time travel?)

I'm going to miss this comic, to be honest. Sure it had massive gaps in time, a lack of any real characterization, extreme laziness, and suffered from an incredibly banal plot, but there was still some charm. That old, ancient, 2007 sprite comic charm.

I'll always feel nostalgic for this comic, but at least there are bigger and greater things out there now. Sprite comics -- and webcomics in general -- have long since evolved past what they used to be, and while I may not be there to see the result (since I suffer from extreme laziness as well), we'll always have the past to look back at. (...did any of this make sense, or did I just vomit out a big wall of nothing?)

Whatever happens next, I hope you'll be successful at it!
@Warpstar: Glad to hear you liked it, at least.
I like your nice drawn ending. I also like how you posted on my first day of summer break.

Though I didn't see until now...
Ten years later, it's finally officially over.
Ten years.

See, the thing is, ten years is a loooong time. Long enough for someone like me to go from age 14 to age 24, and that's so huge of a gap in maturity it's hard to appreciate. It's been ages since I started this dumb little sprite comic as a filler for other dumber sprite comic stuff. Somehow it went on for 120-ish pages. Weeeeird.

And, like, I do miss these characters. Or, at least, Lucky and Rockurtle. The latter in particular ended up as my favorite early on - the snarky Shuckle, who soon enough I started making behind-the-scenes plans for. Such as her crushing on and eventually becoming girlfriends with Azula (the Marill that's appeared in a couple pages). And heck, I made that decision for her to be a lesbian well before I figured out I was a trans girl (and by extension, also a lesbian).

I am seriously making an official sort of coming-out post on the finale of a subpar sprite comic that, at best, like two people would actually view.

The point is! The point is, I've long since moved on from all this. Sure, Kirby's Dreamland Adventures is still making (slow) progress, but that's because there are some payoffs that I really really want to get to and I have a solid idea of what the story to get to them is. This comic? I don't think I ever knew what Shadow Cly's evil plan was meant to be. Heck, their existence is entirely based on a dumb idea I had from age 13 or so.

...But hey, I didn't want to leave off with a out-of-place-even-for-here OotS-styled-for-whatever-reason page, and also not with an April Fool's page. So here's this. Something that looks nice. Something that calls back to the long stretch of this comic.

......

...If you *are* reading this, please feel free to ask questions. About this comic, about me, about plot threads that fell through or oddities that cropped up or plans that never happened. All the questions.

That's all.
Honestly, this is really just an April Fools comic for my actual current body of work over on KDLA. Though it also serves as a better ending point for the archives than the prior page.

This was originally going to be a little more involved, and mostly feature Lucky, Rockurtle,and Azula, but... I just couldn't. I just couldn't work with these sprites after so long. What was past me even thinking?

...Well, really, past me was mistaken in a lot of ways. Most significant being... well, it's significantly awkward to see my old outdated male author avatar throughout this whole comic. Gender's weird like that, y'know. I guess this is sort of an unofficial coming out for me here? Even though that realization is approaching three years old... still more recent than the prior update here, though.

Anyway no this doesn't mark any kind of return to form for this comic. Though I might look into making a more proper finale for the tenth anniversary.

...holy f*** this thing is nearly ten years old
@CapedLuigisYoshi: OK, I didn't understand why it was called Two Cousins Forum either, but thanks for the info (and the extra-info)
@Extremmefan: Because he was an admin on the forum that Braneless is traversing here.

"Swordy", meanwhile, is actually RKInventor, PikaMario99's cousin and the other admin there. It was called Two Cousins Forum for a reason.
Why is PikaMario in this comic?
"When wasn't it official?"
Says the guy with Luigi sprites.
Funny thing is that my sister brought Pearl and Platinum versions, while I've brought the Diamond version. My sister lost the Pearl version. However, she still has the Platinum version, and I've still got the Diamond one (my trainer's name is MARIO, seriously).
I have been thinking of plans to make a semi-continuation of this. It would be a separate comic, though, with a different cast, but set in the same universe. I guess?

And I don't think other authors would want to touch this with a thirty-nine-and-a-half-foot pole.

Sorry.
:(
Something tells me this comic is dead by now. I think it should be remade with other authors or something.
I honestly don't get that panel with the Typlosion and the Kabuto.
Oh, did I say I'd most likely get on it in a month. Haha, what I actually meant was IT HAS BEEN THREE YEARS AND I HAVE NO RASPBERRYFRAGGING IDEA WHERE THE HECKLE THIS PLOT WAS EVER SUPPOSED TO GO

Um... don't expect updates anytime soon, is what I'm saying. Think of me as, say, ProtonJon. Except, you know, with somewhat crappy comics.
