There are times when I realise that owning a pokémon webcomic actually demands me to draw pokémon and not just humans. Ditto gets to appear in another strip, otherwise I try to draw as many different species as possible. All of these strips are ideas which I felt didn\'t entirely merit an update individually, but combined, that should be reason enough.

First: Matter, or energy, cannot be created or destroyed. Ditto can transform, but that doesn\'t necessarily mean he can alter his size. IT\'S A SCIENCE JOKE

Second: Earthquake is often used by rock, ground, steel and heavy pokémon. Pineco is a bug which weighs 15 lbs / 7 kg. But I\'m willing to give him the benefit of doubt.

Third: Sucker punch is more of a term rather than an actual punch, referring to a hit without warning which may or may not be unfair. But since Electrode is a perfect sphere, it still sounds ludicrous. Seriously, the guy has no limbs.

Come on.

Poor Electrode.

Actually Sucker punch is not really an punch, the official translation from suckerpunch from japan is Surprise Attack ;)

The Ditto and Grimer are made out of pure awesome!

Also this made me think of Woopers being able to learn ice punch.
Genesis-Omega Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2012
I think Ditto could alter its size by basically hollowing its body to take the internal organ-less mass and increase it's size. Even then, there would be a noticeable limit. A Ditto, to become a Wailord, would have to start off, probably at least a third as large as the Wailord, or stretch its body paper thin and nearly see through to manage it. At that point, no way can it continue the battle because movement would be too difficult, and a single Poison Sting would pop it like a balloon.

*Im riding on a pokemon, with a weedle which is lvl1 with 1 HP, i seen the end and get stopped by a trainer.*
"Look, i don't have time for a pokemon battle!, i need to heal my pokemon or we're all going to die!"
*Trainer stares*

You are so funny! & I just love your art style! You really seem like a passionate Pokemon fan =]

Do you play on Pokemon Online? Or do you just play the games?
Bummerdude Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2012
Just the games. So far. Been lurking around the smogon forums a good while now but I've yet to bite the bullet and throw mysel into the battle simulators.
son-sora Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2012
you didn't consider pineco's acceleration on its way down to give a greater force
Bummerdude Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2012
Damn right I didn't.
son-sora Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2012
lol, thats it then
kingofthedededes73 Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
thanks for putting logic into pokemon XD
the last 2 made me laugh the most
roobertoober Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ahhh, pokemon + science. Or logic. It never fails to amuse. Also technically, the move was Sneak Attack in Japan, which is why some weird pokemon can learn a 'punching' move, and why Iron Fist doesn't affect it. But whatever, it's still lulzy. (I can't imagine an Electrode being astoundingly sneaky either...:P )

Electrode's face in the last panel.

Awwww, amazing! :love:
Ross-Sanger Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2012
Ditto: problem physics?
It's like in the old Transformers cartoons, Soundwave was a giant robot that turned into a walkman radio. Where's the sense in that?
Although you could have size changing if the weight stayed the same... which would mean shapeshifting dragons would be very heavy as humans.
Zemby Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2012
Love these three strips. I just admire how you drew the Pokemon in these. I think it has something with how you do shading. Because I love shading like that.
Genesis-Omega Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2012
For the Ditto... I imagine that to become larger Pokemon, it'd do one of two things. Either hollow itself out so it could expand its body, or it's made of special cells that an rapidly and efficiently divide at a rate allowing incredible growth speed. If the former, it definitely has limits, unless its actually a combination of the two theories. If it's solely the latter, I imagine that it can also either condense the cells or somehow make them recombine with other cells to return to its typical size, absorbing them for the amount of cellular energy it took to create them. Maybe not all of it, but at least some of it, and at the best, most of what it took.
LittleDarkDragon Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2012
LOL poke logic XDD

Hmm maybe ditto make his inside hollow to look bigger!

and diglet can use cut XD
Oh man,i love that electrode's reaction.
ChibiRegalli Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2012
At least Diglett might be able to cut things with the little rock things around its head. And theoretically they're supposed to have feet.

Ever saw [link] ?

You won't unsee it then
ChibiRegalli Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2012
I think I saw that at one point and repressed it.
Nick-is-Safferion Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Man this is magnificent~! Electrode has the best reaction to his realization.
Umbri-girl Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2012
for ditto I just figured he became less dense.
Doodelay Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2012  Student Writer
this is great lol
xXxMiZuMiXmIkOxXx Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
yeah, i hated how ditto could literally change sizes. bugs me to this day, because it couldn't work. [like you said about matter]

maybe pineco like.. uumm.. you know, i got nothin.

LOL and i thought ariados with sucker punch was bad! this is hilarious. i want to teach my electrode sucker punch so bad.
Lol! I love your comics, it makes me glad that there's someone else that thinks of this.
blood-ravn Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Hilarious. No, really, this made me feel loads better about being sick. Thanks for that! :D
Nellaxival Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
what if the inside of ditto was Hollow though? he'd be able to copy a lot more mass, possibly even something like gyrados depending on how thinly he stretches himself out.
chantal-l Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2012  Student General Artist
These are great. I laughed pretty hard at the second strip. Electrode's expression in the final panel of the third strip is amazing, too. :D
PkMnTrainerEdgar Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2012
I actually Laughed HAAAARD!!!! xD

silveraquila Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2012
