Ah, the irony.

Response to Lopunny in panel 5: if you've seen me drive, you know those two things aren't mutually exclusive.

well, mewtwo may not be secretly human, but some other mons are.

There is an hypotesis which say that Mewtwo is a hybrid between a Pokémon and a human. I wonder if that is the case for this Mewtwo.

I did a bit off reasearch. Lopunny isn't that great. Gardevoir got some pretty all rounding stats(calm mind!). and mega medicham is evil in competitive play. Also, why did you choose audino sulferbunny? Just askin.
Was like a random choice? Or just you like Audino

posted by Black (Guest) on April 14th, 2017, 8:03 am


Audino was originally chosen because it was bipedal, non-evolving and of a sensible height for the artwork :) I remember Night and I going through the whole pokedex (as it existed back then) and rejecting this and that, "no we can't use Mawile it's only two feet tall, that's gonna look ridiculous standing next to Gengar"

EDIT: My favorite mons of each gen are Electrode, Wobbuffet, Luvdisc, Wormadam, Stunfisk, Klefki and Pyukumuku respectively, so if I picked the cast from personal preference we'd have a much stranger comic...

Oh Lopunny, you're so considerate, but if you didn't pack a gummy I will still be disappointed. :P

@Black: Do keep in mind that the mechanics in Mystery Dungeon games are different from the main series games. Some moves which are great in the main series are absolute trash in MD, and vice versa. Still, you aren't wrong, Medicham would be the front-line fighter of the group because she is stronger.

I still have nightmares about kelcecon....

posted by Black (Guest) on April 14th, 2017, 8:54 am


Also I had to say my favorite Pokémon of each gen, it's gengar, gardevoir, Megnanium, mismagius, elektross, aigeslash and mimikyu

Also is super mystery dungeon any good? I've been considering it recently.....

Why do I get the feeling that Lopunny drugged Mewtwo's food?

posted by PJSam on April 14th, 2017, 9:14 am


@PJSam, that sounds like a thing a loppunny would do.

posted by Black (Guest) on April 14th, 2017, 9:33 am


Also in answer to your question, Yes you should get Super Mystery Dungeon. I found it a helluva lot more enjoyable than Gates to Infinity. But the Explorers games are still the best though.

posted by PJSam on April 14th, 2017, 9:37 am


Ugh. Infinity gate. I tried it on a friend's date AND HATED IT. It's was 5

@sulfurbunny: Now you've got me wondering what Jen would've been like as a Mawile.

The words "significantly more terrifying" spring to mind.

At leas she isn't a kangaskhan

Mewtwo is gone without warning. I am actually concerned.

posted by Tallen (Guest) on April 14th, 2017, 10:30 am


Anybody her tired of the gengar x gardevoir ship?

posted by Black (Guest) on April 14th, 2017, 10:34 am


I must be the most annoying one in the comments.

posted by Black (Guest) on April 14th, 2017, 10:35 am


Why does it seem like Mewtwo is always in a bad mood unless somebody is sent to give him Breakfast/Lunch/or Dinner? (First it was N, and now Jen) I know my mom's cat usually gets pissed off when it's hungry and starts knocking things over in the house whenever we ignore it for long periods of time.

It's disturbing how closely attributed his normal human-like behaviors and normal cat-like behaviors overlap each other... (Cat people, am i right!? lol)

Maybe if somebody started petting him he'd...NO, bad idea, bad!

Also, Lopunny: Secretly Human? Hahaha, oh you have no idea lmao!

As far as the choice for Jen being a Audino I think it is a perfect fit. I just can't see any other Pokemon coming out quite as adorable as she has. Maybe Riolu but not a Lucario.

Also I have for some odd reason always thought Audino were taller than Gengar Must be the game model playing with me but in Pokepark they were as tall as a Krokorok.

This is pokepark we're talking about.

  In Defense of the Rabbit

@Black I'd argue that Loppunny deserves to be the leader. Gardevoir has good offensive stats and a great mega, but if you try to rely on calm mind you're going to usually get bodied by a physical steel or fire type before you can stack up. It's neither fast nor bulky enough to survive long enough to sweep without some really really careful usage. It also doesn't exactly have the most varied movepool, so it's usually easy to predict. Medicham has great offenses with pure power, but its defenses aren't enough to keep it alive and its just barely too slow to protect itself from more threatening mons even in its own tier, even in mega. It also doesn't have great priority options to fix that. Lopunny is, to me, the most offensively capable 'mon out of the three. Its mega's attack is monstrous and its speed is ridiculous as well. It has access to fake out so it can safely mega evolve without needing either a clean switch or protect. It can be tutored all three elemental punches for coverage, utilize STAB return, and can use either STAB high jump kick for ridiculous power or STAB drain punch to live for a surprisingly long time while still doing great damage. All three of them lean towards being glass canons, but out of all of them lopunny has the most quick, powerful and versatile abilities, especially if we're considering their megas.

The really funny thing is that Lopbunny is right about mewtwo, a little of A and a little bit of B.

Mostly because most believe that Mewtwo is half human on top of everything else and it's Dr Fujia who used his DNA to make Mewtwo and as a little brother to his dead daughter's clone.

@PJSam considering she told Jen to not eat his food by mistake, I think that's a possibility

posted by DKWIdoin on April 15th, 2017, 12:35 pm


Possibly they're both drugged (because what's the point of drugging one? Jen'll run and get Gengar) but Mewtwo's has much more of that drug, and Lopunny doesn't want Jen dying. For one, Jen isn't and enemy to it, and for a another Mewtwo and Gengar would team up for revenge. Chances are I'm totally wrong about this, and Lopunny really did just pick out a selection one would like but the other won't, and so is warning Jen so she doesn't bite into something she hates.

Does it count as a run if you can fly

posted by Nashew on April 16th, 2017, 11:57 am


In the Pokemon Adventures manga, Mewtwo was created by both Mew and (spoilers if you haven't read the Manga) Blaine's DNA. The reason that he used his DNA is because the DNA sample that Team Rocket had wasn't enough. So (at least in the manga) Mewtwo is part human.
