When will we get back to Wes and N??

HEY. The MAIN CHARACTER. I'd almost forgotten about her.
"When are we getting back to the other peripheral characters?"

@I'm here for the comics: Ouch.

But yeah, at risk of sounding like I'm calling for something I'd rather not think about, we need to get Gengar and Jen back together again. They have a great dynamic, and it feels like we've kinda lost focus on their stories recently.

Make Victory Fire great again!

Gardevoir looks exhausted. I wonder how did they know Gengar and Darkrai went into the ghost realm.

If by MAIN CHARACTER, you mean 'best girl,' and by 'peripheral characters,' you mean only one, (There can only be one!) who just so happens to be the greatest character of all time! MIROR B! AhhHHHH!!! *Waves hands around in the air haphazardly*

Miror B: Published in every issue of 'best girl' magazine' for the past nine years running, and nominated for the international award for best supporting character and funk overlord since his debut back in 2003!

And the hits just keep coming!

Fans can't get enough of him, men want to be him, and aliens wish to make him their supreme ruler in order to secure victory upon the earthlings. Plus, I heard that pokemon trainer 'Red' once shook his hand and congratulated him...USING ACTUAL WORDS! (Gasp?! - Impossible!)

The heavens show him with riches and endless gifts, but he refuses their offers of divine ascendance in favor of his one true calling. Dancing, and ridiculously over the top costumes coated in cheap glitter and shoddy bedazzler rhinestones!

I'm commenting just for the Miror B comment. Someone had to do it.

The passage of time is weird in this comic.

@Dark Matter: Okay, we need to stop this nonsense once and for all. Miror B isn't going to appear. Miror B CAN'T appear in this comic. It's impossible, so stop asking.

The PMD world, as we all know, exists inside Miror B's hair. For him to enter it would create a recursive loop, causing the universe to collapse into a funk-singularity.

*In the spirit world*
Gardevoir: Gengar! Come with me! C'mon, faster! *swerves around tree* Aah!
Gengar & Darkrai: *running after her toward the exit*
*Meanwhile in the physical world*
Lopunny: ... I'm gonna guess that's not what it sounds like, but I'm still not sure whether this is usable teasing material or not.
Jen: What do you think it sounds like?
Lopunny: ...Medicham, you take this.

I has account now :)

OK, you have him, NOW GET HIM OUT!

But, hey, Jen and Team Charm, I wondered where they'd gone to. They've holed up in yet another cave. (I wonder what the cave count of this comic is.) I'm glad to see them again; pretty soon Gengar and Darkrai are going to reunite with them and then all we have to do is find Mewtwo, N, and Wes!

...Provided nothing else goes wrong, as things seem to like doing in this comic. :P

On a side note, I like Lopunny's big sister attitude towards Jen.

@Tallen: Maybe she didn't know they'd gone to the spirit world and was just trying to find him, wherever he was? That might explain why, as Jen says, it's been so long - she was looking for him in the physical world.

@Malc Modnar

No...not just their world, all worlds across time and space. In fact, why stop there, with how much he's built up his headcanon, why not make it even more crazy than it already is XD.

Imagine this: It turns out that Miror B really was the true mastermind all along, except he isn't alone. After the fall of Team Rocket, the failure of Team Plasma, and Cyrus's defeat, Miror B. Shows up and rallies all the Teams (Yes, even team Flare) and promises them everything they've ever wanted will become a reality. Ghettsis, and Giovanni both decide to abandon their inferior plans to join forces with Miror B and form Team Vortex!(A Fusion of Team Rocket, Plasma, Galactic, and Flare)

Miror B. is for some odd reason or another, the second chosen one (Think Darth Vader from Star Wars), with Ash Ketchum being the first (Luke Skywalker), and was fated to wield the creation engine, only, that's not what it see Victini was trying to save the world, not destroy it. She was just misunderstood and deeply upset that Cipher took away her V-Wheel, and decided to throw a colossal tantrum, made worse with the fact that she and her bother Darkrai were both infected with the XD Virus (Screw it, throw in Poke'rus too while we're at it.) Miror B's desire was to use the creation engine as the world's ultimate disco ball, and gain all the power in the universe, thus, essentially becoming the pokemon version of whatever the hell Kefka was suppose to be in Final Fantasy VI. And you guessed it, @Dark Matter from Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon is actually the embodied form of Miror B's magnificent afro given sentience!

And in order to save all existence, all the legendaries from every region must join forces to stop him from forming the infinity gauntlet because reasons. Also Steven Stone, as Iron Man shows up because why the hell not at this point :)

I just noticed

How did Gangar know it was Garrdevoir as that light?

posted by MercenaryX on October 18th, 2016, 7:01 pm


He probably remembers the time Gardevoir stopped him from using dream eater on the player character in the first pmd game.

Can't get enough.

Recently started reading this, Keep the great story up I love this

What, are they just gonna materialize now? That would sure be a thing.

posted by Nashew on October 19th, 2016, 8:19 am


@XD-MADNESS But if that was true and being a chosen one is the same as being a jedi master, then that would mean that-

Miror B is Ash's real father!

OMFG, holy shit, I would laugh so hard if that was actually canon!

posted by Cheesy-Squeezy (Guest) on October 19th, 2016, 6:02 pm


@Cheesy-Squeezy Well, you do know that depending on which fan theories you read...
Lugia is Ash's father.
Or Giovanni.
Or MissingNo.
Or Mew. (which wouldn't that make Mewtwo Ash's uncle or half-brother?)
Though that last one does bring up a question I have. @sulfurbunny do you count Mew as Mewtwo's parent or sibling? I've seen stories take both routes for clones and I'm curious what your take on the matter is.

  To put into perspective...

The last time Jen appeared in a strip since now was in Book V, in a strip published on June 10. That was over three months ago that the main character was last shown on screen. Reading the comic straight through from the beginning reveals absolutely no implications of this time gap; the consistency of the story is remarkable.

I commend you, Sulfurbunny, for your incredible stroytelling and pacing. Well done. I have no idea when this story will end, and that's the beauty of it. I, we, maybe even you, are all lost in its wonder. That anxious anticipation that comes with each new page, the empathy for the characters, the nostalgic satisfaction of connected canonical events--they are all part of this amazing experience. Thank you for showing it to me.
