If you're just joining us, click here to see the first part of the arc.

Even before Twitch got it's hands on the games, a lot of us didn't play the game like the selfless hero it treated us as. I know I level grinded for days while Barry was getting pounded by Galactic in the snow.

Also you may notice the Platinum outfits in the flashback. It occurred to me that you can only get a non-postgame Gallade in Platinum so I made sure to note it.

This strip illustrates another key facet of the Level 30 Psychiatry universe: Not every game has been enlightened about the VG Cataclysm. Certain island nations such as Sinnoh have been isolated Nippon-style from the rest of society. This could lead to some interesting developments in the future...

I dunno about you guys, but Professor Rowan has always scared the crap out of me. During my Diamond days, I was worried he'd eventually turn on me or give me a stern beating or something.

Also, I hate Barry.

Guybrush told me to apologize to you all but I REFUSE.

Nah, I do apologize, but I'm tied up with writing a paper right now, so colors won't be up any time soon.
But if you want to continuously click on our page to check multiple times every hour just to check you're free to.

Hmm, I really must finish my old copy of Diamond so I can get these references. When I got Soul Silver I pretty much forgot about it because NOSTALGIA and SIXTEEN BADGES.

Ah impatientes sometimes it leads to good things other times you end up falling off the world map and going into unknown lands.

Does that mean that characters from/in space might never find out what happened?

Potentially. Then again, given the sort of recon tech on most spacecraft, it'd be pretty hard to miss a gigantic world-merging superevent.

I never played Diamond/Pearl/Platinum, so I don't get the reference, but the Town Map joke works anywhere there are locations off the actual Town Map.

By the way, can I use frames from this webcomic for my blog if I give credit? (This is like the video reviewers who use a clip from a movie to make a joke or a reference.)

Sure thing, just leave a clickable link somewhere. Which panel may I ask?
Iamabrawler edit delete reply
Iamabrawler
A few. Mostly reaction panels, like the "Not sense make" from Part 2 of Dawn of Misunderstanding, or Black Mage's scared expression when he found out Roll was a robot. I picked about ten, and a few of them have dialog.

Oh, I also borrowed the "Don't Disturb OR ELSE" panel with Nurse Chansey in her Pokéball. Could come in handy for my next Pokémon game review.

Of course I'll give credit. What kind of fan would I be if I didn't?

If you want the versions without text, I've got them all stored safely. Good to have them on hand in case I screw up the text really bad.

Don't need them for now, but if an idea comes to my mind I'll probably send a Private Message instead of just using space in the comments section.

I know I found a use for the second panel of Comic 7, "The Weakest Link". It's funny to use each time I'm referring to how dark TLoZ: Twilight Princess was and how it scarred Link.

You'd think the Pokétch would have a GPS app.

wheres the fun in that?

The Pokegear had a map card.

spycrab king
did it have a voice?
NOT GPS
Darius Drake (Guest) edit delete reply
@ Spycrab King: Your last statement appears to be arrogently ignorant. A GPS is a Global Positioning System. A Car's GPS, which is what YOU seem to be saying ALL GPS's MUST be, is closer to an electronic map, that is, it tells you where to go.

Of course, if she had a GPS which only told her what her Latitude and Longitude are, it would probably be useless. Well, unless she knew what her home town's Latitude and Longitude are, which, to be honest, very few people actually know off the top of their head.

I was just kidding,geez
Darius Drake (Guest) edit delete reply
Ah, sorry. It's difficult to pick up on sarcasm in type. Of course, that's why I typed in the word "appears", just in case.

Also, uh, might just be nitpicking, but isn't Dawn's jacket lighter? It's a pretty dark pink here.

It's her outfit in Pokemon Platinum.

Nah, it's just cause I'm lazy and used the same color from her scarf for her jacket.

I guess I was one of those rare exceptions who actually cared about the story. I also didn't usually grind. I fought every battle I found and caught one of each Pokemon/evolutionary line.
