I'm very thankful for Mega evolutions, otherwise this strip would be much more repulsive.

In the Pokéball store within Lumiose city / Neo Paris, you can actually see a Masterball on the display behind the clerk. Drives me nuts, it does.

In all fairness, I wouldn't sleep either. I also wouldn't really need the third panel since the first two says it all, but I've invested far too much into the three panel format to back down now.

I'm fairly certain that this is the reason other RPG encounters reveal gold upon defeat. The most seasoned Pokémon veterans probably noticed how the two messages are in the wrong order, but I took the liberty of changing that for the sake of the comic, and because the actual order of events is arguable as well.

Also, it's apparently a new year. Congratulations to everyone who survived the transition, and I'll look forward keeping this site barely updated this year to come.

@ck: I have no doubt that Oatmeal and various other sites have a thriving comment section that is both helpful to the authors and guests alike. At the same time, there are other popular comics who keep their discussion elsewhere, and seeing as I'm not able to update this comic as often anymore, it'd be more diffiult to sustain such an active community. And due to the nature of my visitors, I've often found myself moderating the comment section due to arguments not relating to the comic, or those who merely post to wonder where the next comic is. Which in turn made me wonder just how much the comment section benefitted my site.

In the dawn of this webcomic, the comments was an appreicated sight since most people either offered critique or encouraging words, which primarily is the reason why I let the comments remain and instead simply remove the reply button (also because I'm not savvy with coding). I've also never been fully content with the comment system (particularly replying to other people). Coupled with how I nowadays get my feedback through other means, along with the other reasons I've mentioned above, removing the comment link felt like the easiest option.

I'm well aware that people would miss this option, and I too sometimes miss enabling guests to anonymously leave messages. But this is the decision I've made. The comment section was a feature, and not a right, and even if I may consider other means of commenting in the future, this comment section won't be one of them. I do not expect you to agree with me, but I do expect you to respect my choice.

With that said, thank you for voicing your concerns, and for being patient with the next update. The next strip will arrive in just about 3 minutes.

Get it? String theory? Because it's an escape ropGET IT???

In other news, I've had to endure two successive colds during the course of three weeks, so together with a thick layer of snow, winter truly has arrived over on my end. Stay healthy out there!

Plowing through XY was also a fun experience, where not knowing what my mons would evolve into made for some really tense moments. Got some new favorites, some new questionable species, but I'm overall looking forward to the impact Gen VI has on the series. Things are about to change.

NPC opponents have come a long way since the RBY days, but there will always be blokes completely oblivious to team structure.

First panel may or may not be based on a personal real life incident involving discs and the visible frustration thereof. Got plenty of mixed opinions about this strip, only goes to figure as it's a larger than the usual update, so judge for yourself how it touched you and where.

The release of Pokemon XY is drawing closer, and I'm trying to prepare myself adequately for the occasion. I knew of all the species and their types before playing Pokémon White, but not their moves, and it made for some really refreshing gameplay where I could experiment and explore more than usual. This time around, not knowing about the new species and their abilities either would raise the stakes even higher, which is why I've avoided updates like the plague and is the reason you won't see many strips about the new games in some time. Only exception was the announcement of the new Fairy type, but that one was a bombshell in terms of news so being completely unaware of it would hardly been possible.

Summer's over. Time to embrace winter's cold embrace.

Other suggestions were Doofus, Jerkwad and Ashley.

I'd also like to take the time to make a shoutout for a new webcomic made by my internet acquaintance Alexandra Douglass named The Cloud Factory. Only five pages so far, but they make a strong case to follow that comic already.
Comment on Fairy-ly odd of Rare Candy Treatment

Anyone who's even remotely up to date with Pokémon news should now be aware of that Gen VI brings another type to the table. If you didn't know, then I apologise for the lack of spoiler tags and hope that you can salvage your future game experience despite this brutal revelation forced upon you. My personal opinion of this new contribution is that it feels somewhat goofy since 'Fairy' is a really vague term of what the type actually constitutes, but since I've so far been able to play with Ghosts, Bugs and Dragons just fine without questioning their inner workings, I'll just shrug this one off. I'm more interested about its impact on the type chart anyway, so while it's late to be discovered, I'll be eager to try it out.

With that said, I've been meaning to make a strip about Glalie's heritage for some time, with the original idea taking place at the daycare. But since I've already exploited that location several times in my earlier strips, I wanted to use a different approach, and the news of the type with the same name certainly gave me the opportunity to joke and be informative all at once. At least in the latter aspect. But this is yet another strip which is more centered around a humorous observation rather than an actual punchline, so if it only managed to make you smirk, I'd be happy.

Nerd Rage also highlighted this topic but with a different approach, so if this one was a miss, then their strip might serve your needs better.
