Water you doing by Bummerdude Water you doing by Bummerdude
I like Soak as a move. It's an interesting effect which can serve you well if played correctly. It's just that when you imagine it in practise, things get weird. Maybe it would have worked better as a Ghost move? I don't know. This is what keeps me up at nights.

Pokemon Black/White 2 strips comes next update. See y'all then.

I'd imagine in real life that the pokemon would get no design change other than the colour scheme to the appropriate type.

Looks like a Duck. . .

*insert Ducktales theme instrumental*

~Life used to be all in flames, till he was soaked down.  No more spitting fire, from his hot mouth.  Might retire from fighting, might even be thinking of name changing to DUCKMAR, WOO-ooo.  Now he goes by the name of DUCKMAR, WOO-ooo.  Paying bills for heating services, DUCKMAR. D-D-D-Duck like with his bill thing.  Still wish he was hot and flaming.  But now he's a water-type so it's DUCKMAR, WOO-ooo.  Now he goes by the name of DUCKMAR, WOO-ooo.  Paying bills for heating services, DUCKMAR, WOO-ooo.  Not Magmar or Magmortar, no DUCKMAR, WOO-ooo.~

And that fills my quota of how to be random for a day.

Trick-or-Treat turns a Pokemon into a Ghost-Elemental and Forest's Curse turns a Pokemon to Grass-Elemental now...

Bummerdude Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2013
Forest Curse turns into grass, yes, but Trick-or-Treat ADDS the Ghost type to a Pokemon (even those with two types already), so that one isn't a complete variant on Soak.

Really love the way you handled the different textures of fire, water, and smoke. Nice implementation of a move so interesting, but also so peculiar.

...While this was funny, I think it might have been executed better if the Pokémon hit with Soak was of the Charmander line or the Slugma line. Or maybe the Eevee line.
Reply
:iconbummerdude:
Bummerdude Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2013
Charmander was definitely a candidate, but with all of the pokemaniacs flaunting their knowledge, being responsible for killing a mon on-screen probably would have been received worse. Was there something in the last panel that made you believe Magmar was a subpar choice?
Reply
:iconllirbwerdnadivad:
llirbwerdnadivad Featured By Owner May 11, 2013
Good point. I don't think that Magmar is sub-par, the comic was still funny and worked well, I just felt that doing it with a Pokémon that depended on fire instead of simply being a Fire-type would be funnier. But you're right, that might not have been received as well.

poison attacks have no effect on steel types so toxic or poison powder won't work on a steel type. so a steel type can't be poisoned.

no it can not, a steel type is immune to poison moves

so Toxic won't do any effect.

Yep. Steel types ARE immune to poison attacks but in one of the generations, the bug type move twin needle had a chance of poisoning. No matter what type the opponent was ;)

:iconbummerdude:

Most likely, but I wanted to pick a species which would only have its flames go out. If I had chosen Slugma or Magcargo, odds are that the readers missed the point, but I could be wrong.
