FIRST IN 2019!

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Also, Mewtwo is serious! Glad to see that Darkrai and Mewtwo are showing their trust in one another!

Mewtwo's an adorable, concerned sweet in the middle left picture.

Darkrai put a lot of trust in Mewtwo. He changed a lot already

Happy New Year! This so isn't gonna work like they hope.

This Will Work!

@PJSam, Have some faith, in Mewtwo's machine. Mewtwo is a genius. Have some faith in the New Year! (Also, Happy New year... again!)

Happy new year watching the rose Parade

Yeah, happy new year, also speaking of rose parade, anyone want to take past Rose Parade floats and put a pokemon twist on it? Not just pokemon as a float, but what does the rose parade look like in the pokemon universe? Grass types must be used alot to help buld the floats or are part of them and then there is the Clydesdale horses, can we see Ponytas and Rapadashes as Clydesdales or their equivalent, also there was Mini therapy horses in today's parade and what would they look like as pomemon?

It is relevant if only for today. Anyone want to take up the challenge?

I'm a little scared

Happy New Year everyone! @SmartTurtle04 I have faith but what if it doesn't work? I'm nervous about dis

@MercenaryX that does sound really cool, I have to admit :P

This can only go well.

Pokemon Universe

@PrettyWittyKitty, I believe an out of universe answer, is that Sulferbunny wants to wrap up the story. An in Universe answer, Mewtwo failed in the past relying on himself. He is now working together with friends. When has the power of friendship ever failed in the Poke'mon Universe?

@MercenaryX, Challenge Accepted! (Does it have to be finished today?)

  Boss Kitty

Boss Kitty is bringing up some bad memories but at least Darkrai trusts him

posted by Julian (Guest) on January 1st, 2019, 12:44 pm


This is familiar for Darkrai indeed. But the key difference is Mewtwo's making sure he's okay with it and asks if he'd rather do this at a different time.

I See this as one of the most adorable pages of mewtwo with darkrai

Oh I have faith in Mewtwo and his ability's, and Arceus knows he's earned a win after the parade of losses the comic seems to like tossing at him, it's just I also have faith in Lovrina being a tricky pixie and Hoopa messing things up for the hell of it.

posted by PJSam on January 1st, 2019, 1:33 pm

Tricky Pixie

@PJSam, That nickname for Lovrina made me laugh. True, Lovrina is basically a Bond Villain. Hoopa could come in and take Mewtwo away.... There is a chance this will work out. Lovrina could have rigged the machine, to make Darkrai a beacon, to turn everyone into a shadow pokemon... I just want to see Lovrina fail epically....

2 0 1 9

Happy New Year, everyone! To another year of Victory Fire, among other things!

posted by Night_the_Hedgehog on January 1st, 2019, 3:15 pm


Happy New Year! It's been almost 7 years of VF, wow. I feel like Lovrina's tampered with the machine somehow...but hopefully Darkrai will be freed!

Pokemon Themed Rose Parade

@MercenaryX, There is actually a poke'mon called Mudsdale that would work as a Clydesale horse, and the Rapadashes, could be the horses, and the Ponytas, could be the mini therapy horses. I can see Grass pokemon working on the parades. I imagine, that there would be a crowd of pokemon in the Bleachers, and a team of pokemon on the floats.

@SmartTurtle04 Take your time, it would be okay before the end of the month, but I am okay with you doing it right over doing it fast.

posted by MercenaryX on January 2nd, 2019, 1:21 am


Welp this can only end well

I see some people believe that Lovrina has one last trick to pull. As much as I hate her, I just don't think she'll try anything. She has nowhere to run if she tries to mess this up.

posted by Guest on January 2nd, 2019, 8:37 am

In Time

@MercenaryX, Thanks! This should be fun.

@Guest, Hoopa can show up at any time, and take Mewtwo. Although, Lovrina has not even learned any moves, or even met Hoopa. Maybe Lovrina runs while everyone is distracted? She has no where to go, but can go anywhere... then again, sabotaging Mewtwo's machine would not all in all, benefit Lovrina.

Also, Mewtwo said "I'll take your charm for safekeeping" I was wondering where Darkrai's Necklace was yesterday, I just realized it's in Mewtwo's left hand, in panel six. Is the necklace hard to see, or is it just me?

Conclusion: Lovrina might not sabotage this...

posted by SmartTurtle04 on January 2nd, 2019, 10:55 am


I know that he was saying it to assure Darkrai, but I can't help but think that part of Mewtwo going, "This *will* work." was him reassuring himself too, based on what we saw last page and the final calibrations on the arrays... plus the whole thing being a theoretical construct based from the Purification Machine from XD Gale of Darkness.

  It’s Not Gonna Work

To quote the Inquisitor;

“You know it’s not just gonna work, right? It never just works.”

posted by CIR (Guest) on January 2nd, 2019, 6:20 pm


@MecenaryX I think the little therapy horses would be Ponyta and the big Clydesdale horses would be Mudsdale

posted by Kattra on January 3rd, 2019, 5:42 am


It had Arceus damn better work. Because shit is about to get real for everyone including the jerk-o-lantern. Has the whole Mewtwo is going to use Miracle Eye of very tortured nightmare pokémon while a lot of psychic pokémon are running wide open to work that thing not sunk in? What are the odds they don't rebroadcast his hell on earth at least in part?

I hope Jen beats the shit out of the Jerk-o-lantern.

Once Mentioned Twice Agreed


1) So we agree on the poke'mon version of the Horses in the Rose Parade, the I commented earlier on?

2) Do you think a Burmy or Wormadam, would be paid, to be apart of a floats exterior?

3) While there is a chance, that Lovrina set Mewtwo's machine up to make Darkrai an antenna to turn everyone in the PMD world in shadow pokemon.... Lovrina is surrounded by shadow pokemon, and has gotten on everyone's last nerve. (Mewtwo will not be affected, but he will not be kind.)

Conclusion: I still don't think Lovrina will sabatoge the machine. The bad out weighs the good in her favor.

posted by SmartTurtle04 on January 3rd, 2019, 11:37 am



1) Yes, but there are real world animals in the pokemon world, just not as wildly seen as normal. I would say people would confuse them for pokemon that the pokeballs don't work on.

2) I would think both, mind you the more humanlike with humanlike thinking woud be paid while the more simplistic objectives types would lean more for food.

3) No, Lovrina has every incentive to make sure this works, her butt is on the line, and if anything happens to go wrong, she knows she will be the first everyone will turn to. No she won't let it happen, but someone else might. *coughcoughhooplacough*

It burns, burns, burns...

The ring of fire...

An Incentive to work..


1) That would be funny to see a pokemon trainer try and fail to catch a horse.

2) Fair enough. But what if material for the float ran out, and a Wormadam had to be a living decoration, because it matched the color of an empty spot on a float?

3) Yeah, Lovrina would not risk her life for her project. But theories are fun. Hoopa has been out sight since May18th 2018. Page 667: Logos, so Hoopa is Bound for a return, to become Unbound.

@darth deebious the wise, I went down, down, down, and the flames they went higher.

posted by SmartTurtle04 on January 3rd, 2019, 4:18 pm


Does anyone just want to hug Darkrai and promise him he is not alone and his friends are right there to catch him if he falls?

posted by Kattra on January 3rd, 2019, 7:17 pm

Give Darkrai A Hug

@Kattra I do!

posted by SmartTurtle04 on January 3rd, 2019, 8:11 pm



2) that ia kind of the idea if you want one of those floats that us more then animatronic.

posted by MercenaryX on January 3rd, 2019, 10:52 pm

More Than Animatronic.

@MercenaryX, That sounds like fun. On a different note, what do you think of a Live Action version of Aladdin?
