Not just a tasty glass of Pwnade but a glorious Pwnzer strike visible from orbit. Sometimes the worst thing you can do to someone is nothing.

Also first because obviously someone cares.

You tell her Darkrai! Love how he didn't lose control even when he was confronting his tormentor. It really shows how far he's come thanks to the help of his friends.

I'd like to start that slow clap for Mewtwo, Darkrai is the BOSS. I started reading today's comic worrying about Darkrai falling back into his "shadow" state without Jen around and things going horribly wrong, but he handled it amazingly. Hats off to this.

I KNEW IT! He was going to do the worsted thing he could do to her, and that was nothing but a sick sick burn that will need an ICU and full body skin graftings for life for her.

But in all seriousness, if she is a Sociopath or cycle path she's not gonna feel much in the way of regret, scheme and so Darkrai left a huge seed if doubt in her mind, we just need to see what blossoms if anything. It is the only flaw that I see about Darkrai's little burn, I swear she has no empathy at times, the game she was in really made me feel that.

Also Darkrai saying about her making worse nightmares then what he could, it reminds me of a quote About how we build cages and that no prison can hold us save the ones we build around ourselves for ourselves.

Really, the amount of bad karma she's build-up is going to be asthronomical. It will be worse than anything darkari or even Arceus could do to her. Still that look on her face, it isn't fear, it is Confusion, she doesn't get it or if she does, doesn't understand it.

I wonder when she will breakdown.

Also mewtwo's smile at the end, it is pure bliss and how goofy it it, but I love it.

Okay, serious question. Poison and burn are status ailments, and getting beat in a pokemon battle is still beating up other pokemon. Wouldnt these same things happen in a pokemon battle too? JEEZUS Lovrina this is why pokemon centers exist, this isnt a nuzloche wtf lmao. (Then again, if you were working for Cipher/Plasma, they probably wouldnt let her take him to one. I can just imagine the scolding she would get from the nurse joy runing the counter lol!)

As for the look on her face in the last panel, it looks more like regret to me. Still a shitty person, but she does look a little bit sad there.

Hey Wes my boi, come on in here and roast this pink haired pumpkin while the burn is still fresh. I'm sure you've got a few things to say that will keep this fire burning for a few more hours at least! XD

Even mythical Pokémons can roast you so badly! NICE.

*cough* ouch. xD

Darkrai is so done. Its great. He looks so unimpressed with Lovrina it's funny.

EDIT: On a sidenote, I dont even think Cresselia would save Lovrina from her nightmares. I dont think she would have the niceties - Lovrina did nearly drive her counterpart insane, after all.

Darkrai said that perfectly.

Holy bleeping shit man I literally screamed "OOHHH HOLY SHITTTT THE BURNNNN" when I read this because yo, I actually need me some ice cold drink just for reading this one crazy hell of a roast. I'm not expecting such a literal mental murder from Darkrai with a leave as majestic as a mic drop after a roast in front of a national TV show.

Darkrai is one well-composed, well-constructed individual with lots of spicy wordings to spit at his enemy (his own slavemaster) to crush her heart physically even with only words.

If I were her I’d just say “The “I feel sorry for you.” line is a bit overplayed.”

Mew's face in the last panel OMG he's so cute

posted by NimbaloTheSlayer (Guest) on September 28th, 2018, 9:20 am


Regret, guilt, two sides of the same coin, and Darkrai just added the sparks to both emotions that will eventually consume Lorivina. At least that's the plan.

posted by littlekirby61524 on September 28th, 2018, 9:39 am


To the Guest commenting about status effects: Technically, yes, poison and burn are statuses; the usual depictions of them tend to be easier to see as a surface layer thing that a medical spray or a berry can quickly cure. Darkrai's implications of torture lean more to an ingested or injected poison, branding (remember, Jen saw XD-002 physically marked on him way back when she was seeing him in her sleep), and the kind of extended beating that leads to permanent physical injuries (as opposed to the fighting to exhaustion trainer battles do).

As to my own comments on the strip: I agree with others' comments about Lovrina being more in a state of stunned shock at the verbal beatdown one of the eldest of the legendaries has placed upon her. This is basically a 'The Reason You Suck' speech turned into potential nightmare fuel... and it's all her own fault.

posted by DrakonLameth on September 28th, 2018, 10:17 am


Never forget, for all those innocent moments picking apples, Darkrai is still the king of nightmares.

posted by Morzone on September 28th, 2018, 10:40 am

Well Put Darkrai

That was a beautiful speech. Darkrai really put Lovrina in her place, in the best possible way.

I really like the emphasis of Darkrai's exit on Panel 5.

The Title says it all really.

@MercenaryX, Looking back on Page 703, What did Darkrai do to get in trouble? (Lovrina looks like a Diglet with a wig, behind her desk. How funny is that?)

@SmartTurtle04 Oh my God!

@ILeninVelikyNamPutOzaril I think you just described a 4chan and 8chan sh*tposter!

Darkrai's exact quote is "All my nightmares will pale before the ones you've given yourself."

Is he speaking of those he creates?
Or the nightmares he suffered from as a result of Lovrina's actions?

If the first, then Lovrina is not going to suffer enough.
And if the second... She won't be alive to recall them.

Lovrina is weak, mentally - I think the only reason her mind didn't tear itself to pieces over her transformation was that she was still recovering from nightmares and that she had a VERY angry Darkrai in the same room to worry about.

Jen took that shock. Her mind was never close to shattering. She may be young, she may be seen as fragile, but inside she is strong.

Lovrina is not.

Nightmares beyond Darkrai's own suffering would tear Lovrina apart, more slowly and surely than any knife.

posted by Nightingale (Guest) on September 28th, 2018, 2:22 pm


Lovrina looks baffled. She just stares blankly at Darkrai. Not remorse, fear, or sadness. Lovrina just stares like he is speaking another language. Or is Lovrina in shock of Darkrai's words? What is she thinking?

@Nightingale (Guest). I think it is the latter. Her deeds are going to come back to haunt her.

@MercenaryX, What do you mean by "Oh my God!"?

posted by SmartTurtle04 on September 28th, 2018, 2:43 pm


Sigh...Darkrai Darkrai Darkrai. Or should I be addressing the author here? When will you learn that not everyone feels bad for doing horrible things to people? All it takes to ruin someone without guilt is to de-humanize the person. If you believe they are inferior, a non person. Then you can do anything to them without guilt. History speaks of this. Some people do things not because they are mentally disturbed or "evil" but because they have ceased to consider a walking meatsuit a sentient being just like them.

Now if someone were to suddenly consider the non-person a person. THEN we are talking about some serious mental distress incoming. But until then, there shouldn't be guilt.

While I disagree with the words being said here, Darkrai looks really cool in this comic :D

Have fun sleeping tonight.

Lovrina has a very dark, and bare future ahead…

@SmartTurtle04 I mean "Oh my God!" Because that burn was biblical!

@Hudlgypuck (Guest) It's just you, he doesn't look that girly if at all. That stuff with the face markings on the fur.

A Biblical Burn

@MercenaryX, Thank you for your explation, what do you think of these Jokes?

1) At this point, Lovrina has been burnt so much, she might as well be called Pumpkin Spice. (Wes would call her that)

2) Even if she got Keldeo from Book Three, to let her cool off in it's lake, the lake would have dried up before she dipped in.

3) I'm pretty sure Slugma would need hazmat suits to even stand near Lovrina.

4) At least Jolteon, Vaporeon, and Flareon became legendaries after Burned Tower, Lovrina just got burned and became a Thanksgiving Dessert.

5) Lovrina just got burned, worse than all the times Ash was burnt by his Charizard.

Conclusion: I could do this all day.

Wow, I'm fairly surprised he keep his composure given the circumstances, a thing I think 99% of the universe couldn't of pulled off.

A part of me still wishes he murdered her though.

I'm also surprised she has anything that can resemble a conscience

posted by Wolfier (Guest) on September 29th, 2018, 12:38 am


I appreciated this more than I should have.

Also, Mewtwo

posted by PrettyWittyKitty on September 29th, 2018, 6:39 am


@SmartTurtle04 Number 1 because I can see Wes and Lopbunny using that on Lov all the time now as an annoying reminder that will never get old fornWes to use on her constantly, for me anyways at least. PLEASE SULFURBUNNY! Have Wes and Lopbunny use that on her, the combined might of those two's snark will be unstoppable!

But yeah, these jokes just write themselves.

posted by MercenaryX on September 29th, 2018, 6:46 am


It's amazing to watch Mewtwo and N struggle to follow that up. I'm not even sure it's possible. Darkrai, you are amazing.

posted by Guest on September 29th, 2018, 11:04 am

Wes and Lopunny

@MercenaryX, I can see that! Wes, and Lopunny would bring Lovrina to shame.

PLEASE SULFERBUNNY! Let Wes and N call Lovrina a Pumpkin Spice! Look at how Mewtwo turned out after being called Boss Kitty!

posted by SmartTurtle04 on September 29th, 2018, 11:24 am


Yep and yep.

Darkrai really nailed it on Lovrina.

posted by SparkySharkhead on September 30th, 2018, 11:10 am


@Hudlgypuck I can see why you'd say that. Zoroarks are a rather feminine-looking species, what with the chest fluff, eye markings, long mane, thin body and wide hips.

Now, here's my contribution to the quips:

Lovrina got flash-roasted so hard the slightest breeze will see her crumble into dust.

Enough Said

Darkrai really spoke from the heart. I still wonder though, what got him in trouble? I hope Lovrina learned something from his words......

Darkrai’s burn was so powerful that it knocked over the cup on the table.

Jesus, man, that’s a strong burn.

This is a great comic, but i have to say this is the best side so far (for me) i love Darkra, and his words got me goosebums and sent a bug down my spine (do you say it like this in english?) he has such a great Charakter development.

keep up the good work

P.S. I'd love to tell my old school bullies the same
