Is this the end?!

Feels like the comic is reaching its end.. :( I hope there's more!

  Cue Ackbar

Place your bets on this being a trap.

  those bracelets looks a lot like Mewtwo's collar!

Something is very, VERY wrong here. I don't like it at all. This is just way too easy, for the first thing. Hoopa WANTS her to do the thing with the globe, to the point where he isn't even asking for anything in exchange for the words, and Jen is walking right into it.

But then, does she really have a choice at this point? I don't see any other obvious ways to duct tape the universe back together right now.

Since I still blame a lot of this on that Ninetales, I've been thinking about it. The fact that everyone just sort of seems to respect Ninetales' right to curse people over minor non-crimes, and that his river of crocodile tears actually accomplished anything, really makes me wonder what kind of messed-up rules this universe operates under, and also very glad I don't live there.

Oh shit, I think I just figured it out...

Hoopa isn't in control of itself at all. Something or someone else is controlling him. That green energy around his fist is a big hint. can't be....Zygarde?

By the way, Zygarde's ability is called AURA BREAK which - INVERTS the power of FARIY AURA and DARK AURA...(basically, it reduces the effectiveness of those typings by 25%.) And take a guess what typing Jen is. That's right, Fairy Type! This would also somewhat explain why Hoopa can still use it's powers since this - dark realm - as it seems, is what is preventing them from using their abilities. Zygarde's ability might have the power to somewhat neutralize it's effects.

Although I could be wrong, but this would be one insane plot twist if Zygarde has also undergone shadowfication too.

Could it be that Hoopa needs Mewtwo's power in order to free him from Zygarde's influence? Is there another enemy faction that has been pulling the strings?

Finally an intelligent marking by someone. I still have my doubts though, I feel a faint hint that Hoopa is not "what Hoopa is."
Something smells really fishy. I mean, if it bargains an entire being for one portal, why would it tell Jen the activation procedure like it's some sort of freebie? Or is whatever Hoopa is planning needs whatever that thing is activated?

This is a really relaxing page, finally some peace. But it reeks of a Salmon-cutting factory.

@CIR : Betting Uncle Scrooge's Number One Dime that this will be a trap, but after the activation procedure is executed.

Deal With the Djinn

I really hope that it's just a coincidence that Hoopa shows up out of nowhere, on page 666 no less, with forbidden knowledge of how to operate a major artifact from what is essentially God Himself.... Then again, knowing Hoopa it's a 50/50 shot at him making things worse just for kicks or Arceus banned him from using it because he was using it to basically crank call God at 3 AM all the damn time....

I don't think the Space Globe was created by Arceus. I think this might actually be part of the reason Gengar was punished long ago.

If anyone still remembers, Gengar wasn't turned into a pokemon simply because he abandoned Gardevoir, he did something else. Gengar in his past life was an a trainer/aura guardian. The reason this dimension was probably split away from the human world was because some strange darkness was spreading across the world or something. That's what Arceus mentioned anyway...

So far, nothing has been revealed as to what this darkness was, but if I had to guess, then it be...dun dun dun...Hoopa unbound!

In the movie, hoopa in his unbound form was basically able to fight against multiple legendaries all at once back when he was in his prime. But in the end, a human sealed his power away within the "Prison Bottle", a human known as Ghris, the one who created the Prison bottle, was also seen sporting three of Arceus's plates. Oh yeah, and Hoopa unbound is a psychic/dark type, unlike his normal form, which is psychic/ghost.

When Ash grabbed the prison bottle in the movie, he unintentionally became possessed by Hoopa's - shadow - or something. So...what if, Ghris was possessed by that very same Shadow...

Could Gengar's real identity actually be Ghris, or possibly somebody who knew him?!

I'm willing to give Hoopa the benefit of the doubt here and say that it's giving Jen a freebie because she just found the exact sort of loophole that Hoopa would use. It's being generous because it's impressed.

posted by Hydreichronos (Guest) on May 15th, 2018, 6:41 am


I’m pretty sure this is the first time we’ve seen hoopa smile for real

It’s beautiful.

Also was Hoopa crying?

Loophole made Hoopa LOL!

......I'll shut up now

Page number 666 huehuehue

get the freebie jen get it

posted by Neolancer on May 15th, 2018, 8:56 am


The comic's number though, but anyways LOOPHOLE!

posted by AndreTheLugia on May 15th, 2018, 9:25 am


Your theory is compelling, but remember that Audinos are normal types. They only become normal/ fairy types when they mega evolve.

posted by SensingTabby (Guest) on May 15th, 2018, 10:03 am


@Satan(Guest): Well, yes, those bracelets look like MewTwo's collar because the collar is Hoopa marking him as owing a debt to the djinni.

I like how Jen takes a moment and finds the loophole to allow Hoopa to help; I feel that's why we get the chuckle out of the otherwisely enigmatic legendary at the end. After all, Hoopa gets plausible deniability out of this; he didn't do the act, he merely was showing how to do it if someone happened to be right in Jen's position... it's not his fault Jen was in the right position at the right time.

What will hoopa do? Hmmmmm?

posted by PenelopeTheDragon on May 15th, 2018, 10:27 am


Ok so I see a lot of people being like “hoopa is up to something he can’t be trusted” but hear me out:

Hoopa is a trickster, someone who revels in exploiting loopholes and technicalities to get people under his thumb. So when Jen suggested the loophole that allowed him to act, perhaps hoopa gave Jen this freebie out of respect for a fellow trickster? That smile does look like a “heh, I like you, kid” kind of smile

posted by Guest on May 15th, 2018, 11:11 am


Ok hoops in the 2nd last panel is adorable I’m done. Although maybe I shouldn’t stop on this page number…

posted by Shadow_Strikr on May 15th, 2018, 12:11 pm

Is Hoopa's plan coming together?

@CIR (Guest). I bet $500 poke, that this may turn out all right for Jen. Although this page number may be a bad omen.

posted by SmartTurtle04 on May 15th, 2018, 12:26 pm


love the comic so far <3

posted by Guest on May 15th, 2018, 2:02 pm


I hope this isn't a trick, like really really really hope it isn't a trick.

posted by ComicLover (Guest) on May 15th, 2018, 2:28 pm


So much to say and so little brain power on my part to express just how I feel about everything. I am hoping Hoppla is helping because Hoopla needs Jen to succeed lest something screws with hoopla's plans.

@Guest I agree, I think Hoopla likes and respects Jen, because Jen is the more dangerous of tricksters, rhe subtler type.

posted by MercenaryX on May 15th, 2018, 3:37 pm


For those thinking it's not a trick, well. I'm sorry, but it's totally a trick. Jen is going to end up causing a huge catastrophe. The entire situation basically implies that its going to happen. Also the comic page number matches the number of the beast. Yeah, bad shit is going to happen. Everyone is going to die, the end :)

No, seriously, I don't know what you guys are expecting. That Hoopa is indirectly the good guy here? folks need to see more movies or something. He's totally the bad guy, and most likely as soon as Jen activates the globe, Hoopa is going to make his move. I mean, jeezus yall, he's got evil written all over his smug genie face. Also, this is the guy that turned Wes into a crocodile!

Never forget!

posted by Guest on May 15th, 2018, 4:01 pm


Well I never thought.
I thought who might be the main Villain but now I kinda have a theory.

If I am right, Victini is down for the count right now, but a Shadow Hoopa... maybe. And Hoopa has a Leash on Boss Kitty.

And if I'm right, Hoopa wants to use Boss Kitty on something / Someone. Could this mean that Hoopa objective is to attack Arcrus? ... this is gonna go extremely bad if this is the case..

posted by MidnightUser on May 15th, 2018, 4:21 pm


Hoopa looks so... nice.

I don't trust Hoopa.

posted by Pyrouge on May 15th, 2018, 5:59 pm


Not to be a contrarian here, but I think Hoopa is being genuinely helpful here. I'm pretty sure what ever Hoopa wants doesn't involve the world ending, so I think he/she/it wants to help get things fixed.

posted by PJSam on May 15th, 2018, 8:22 pm

Anyone want to make a bet?

@PJSam, I bet $500 poke that you are right. How much would you bet you are right? (I still think this page number is a bad omen.)

posted by SmartTurtle04 on May 15th, 2018, 8:31 pm


I bet $1000 poke and a vile seed that Hoopa won't make a move until AFTER they fix the universe.

posted by PJSam on May 15th, 2018, 8:37 pm

We Have A Bet!

@PJSam, I bet $1,500 poke, and a pecha berry, the Hoopa does not make a move until Mew Two gets his strength back. To Recap: This is currently for $3,000 poke, a vile seed, and a pecha berry! Anyone else want to bet?

posted by SmartTurtle04 on May 15th, 2018, 9:13 pm


Yay, loopholes! \o/

posted by Nashew on May 15th, 2018, 9:52 pm


Is it just me, or does Hoopa have less glowy stuff around him? (her?) It could just be that it's the first time that we've seen Hoopa in decent lighting, but maybe if we go by the theory that Hoopa was possessed by something else, perhaps that something else is being suppressed in this area of unraveling reality.

posted by Silicon42 (Guest) on May 15th, 2018, 10:55 pm


@SmarTurtle04 I'm going to take the bet that Hoopla is being controled by someone else and I bet it is going to tie into Gen's sister's employer, who I think is trying to do something, but I have no clue as to what that is. I think Hoopla wants Boss Kitty to take down this boss of his to finally free him.

As for the wager, I got this ticket for a ship, the S.S. Mary, it's like the S.S. Ann, but it's manned by pokemon for all the humans who where turned into pokemon, be they children or adutls. Only thing is that there's a curse on it that turns any human that steps on it into pokemon. Well it's more a book of ticekts(400 Count) worth close to 30,000 Poke minus one ticekt.

For some reason that one keeps showing up and I can't seem to get rid of it.

@Silicon42 I know that Legendaries are assumed genderless, but, come on lol, have you seen Hoopa's mega-evo? there is no way that there is a female version of whatever that is lmao, I refuse to believe it.

posted by Tikou (Guest) on May 16th, 2018, 4:08 am

More Bets On The Table!

Thank you @MercenaryX for your bet that Hoopa is being controlled, and a book of tickets worth $30,000 poke. (Also are you intentionally putting an "L" in Hoopa?) So far the bet is $33,000 poke! (Plus prizes.) Anyone else want to bet?

posted by SmartTurtle04 on May 16th, 2018, 11:15 am


Just remember yall, its page 666

posted by Black Spiderman (Guest) on May 16th, 2018, 3:58 pm


@PJSam and @SmartTurtle04, sorry for being pessimistic but this is tooeasy to be just a free here's how to fix the world. I bet 6 joy seeds and 2 pure seeds that this will fix the world, but hoopa won't be walking away empty handed. He will get his power back without mewtwo and then use his favor to prevent anyone from sealing him.

Now if that bet falls through, I have a gold ribbon (double or nothing) to get that hoopa is going to become unbound before comic 700.

posted by Xaos (Guest) on May 16th, 2018, 6:10 pm

Another Bet!

Thank you @Xaos (Guest), for your donation of six joy seeds and two pure seeds, (and a gold ribbon.) You also have to bet Poke, for your bet to count, or this is just a donation. The pot is still $33,000 Poke. (Plus prizes.) We now have a bet that this will go down hill for Jen. Anyone else want to make a bet?

posted by SmartTurtle04 on May 16th, 2018, 7:44 pm


@SmartTurtle04 Blame auto correct being messed up.

posted by MercenaryX on May 17th, 2018, 1:13 am

  I dunno...

As ominous and overt as Hoopa was initially, I don't think he's evil? I wanna say that the last third and second panels point to something less evil, maybe points to something genuinely positive.

Maybe he's just impressed at how quickly she made a loophole, or something along those lines. I am gonna bet that he *was* at least a little bit sketchy due to his disposition in previous encounters, but then Hoopa turns it around because of Jen's charisma and smarts. And uh...I bet a super scratched up copy of Gex for Playstation 1. I guess.

Bets are Growing!

@MercenaryX, sorry little details bother me. @Xaos (Guest), @Muddy(Guest) You guys also have to bet poke, and not just prizes! Please bet some Poke, otherwise the bet will not count. Some thing like $5,000 poke? Thank you for your bets and prizes though! The bets are leaning towards Hoopa trying to help. Does anyone say otherwise or agree?

posted by SmartTurtle04 on May 17th, 2018, 9:48 am


@SmartTurtle04 sold the gold band. 2000 poke.

posted by Xaos (Guest) on May 17th, 2018, 11:24 am

That's More Like It!

@Xaos (Guest). Thank you for your donation of $2,000 poke. The Betting Pool is now $35,000 poke. All bets are final Tomorrow! There is still time to bet! @Muddy (Guest) how much Poke do you bet?

posted by SmartTurtle04 on May 17th, 2018, 5:55 pm


Oh no.

posted by Guest on May 17th, 2018, 6:15 pm


Hoopla, that is noce and all, but that doesn't answer the question, you are either a pokemon, or you are not, which is it?
