How long has it been since we last saw the couch? A long time certainly.

Punch Out is a great game but it's kinda sad that it only now got in to Smash Bros. Even weirder was on the Japanese nets the people were all like "who's this guy?" It's funny how some series become more popular in other territories.

Once you've drawn Soda Popinski, where is there to go besides down?

God, I remember every voice clip and sound effect from Punch Out Wii.
I mean, you have to in order to be good at the game, but even then I never got past Title Defense Soda.

Giga's main PC bit the dust so we aren't able to provide an update today. Luckily, the Smash 4 DLC comes out today, so you might as well go out and buy that while you're waiting. Have fun, everyone!

The next one may be a while. Giga's Laptop died. A moment of silence.

To be fair, people in the west said the same thing about Shulk.

Did Chuggaaconroy begin his playthrough of Xenoblade befoer or after Shulk's reveal? Not everyone was like "who?" in this country.

I don't know, you'd have to check the date the revel trailer was posted and the date of the first episode of the playthrough. Still, there were quite a few people in the west who were wondering who Shulk was.
I before A except after K (Guest) edit delete reply
Definitely before. Chuggaa's LP was the only reason I knew who Shulk was when he was announced.

Before, even before Xenoblade 3DS was I believe too.

Lol, Mike Tyson is now Mr Dream. Wait... is that an aaperance of a IRL celebrity?!
Anyway... Punch Out and Smash. All I can say is that Little Mac is amazing. He's my main, and my custom one is prized. >:)

No matter how many arcs you make, going back to the classic coushion sessions is the best. Is the original idea of the comic after all

What customs do you run on him?

I emphazised his attack with a badass middle weight box gloves, a KO healer badge, and Rare attack badge. LM covers my fav strategy in smash: End the fight ASAP. And with its already big speed and attack, I need few hits to send my foes flying. Combined with his side special, the Star Meter KO and his invincibility frames, who cares his jumping sucks? KO heal is there in case I did got hit. I guess I would kick even more butt if I used counters, but oh well... I dont play defensively anyway

I remember actually running Thunderbolt on my Gardevoir back in Emerald. Best part is that the good doctor using it now goes with the comic's title. :D

You tell me about series becoming popular only in one region, leading to plenty of characters being overlooked.

Mike Jones has has nothing except a mention in the Chronicle, in Brawl! And in my opinion, the StarTropics games were awesome! He could have gotten at least, I dunno, a trophy or something. Still nothing in Smash 4!

R.O.B.'s purple costume is based off of Nav-Com, so there's that I guess

"Aye-aye, captain! You did not make it into Smash yet again!"

I honestly forgot that Gardevoir knew Thunderbolt. It is a good move to have though, and a couple of my Gardevoir have used it in the past.
CidYoshi edit delete reply

I think Thunderbolt was one of the most used TMs on Gardevoir on Gen III and stayed like that until it became half Fairy type, getting less use from there after. But is always a nice idea to make them learn it for extra variety.

I still use Thunderbolt on my Level 100 Gallade, to be honest. I'm not one for STAB; I go for versatility, covering weaknesses where I find them.
SonOfPreacherMan (Guest) edit delete reply
So, we know that she knows Thunderbolt, what are the other moves she knows?
Guybrush20X6 edit delete reply
Guybrush20X6
Audino lists them all here.
GardeBlaze (Guest) edit delete reply
Psychic is pretty handy since it can be used to move things around a lot. Hypnosis to calm angry patients like we've seen before, and Thunderbolt because it's cool. I hope that Gardevoir never ends up having to use Healing Wish though.
little mac fan (Guest) edit delete reply
on the idea of customizing mac i've only really used him in smash run so i made him a speed demon useing leaper/sprinter agility badges and a heavyweight boxing gloves. loving the comics still just readded the pixalmon mod of minecraft and i'm looking of a female ralts now to make the doctor :P
Tzauri (Guest) edit delete reply
Wonder why Gardevoir didn't use a psychic attack; I mean, if humans can have 'types' in regards to Pokemon attacks, he'd clearly be a fighting type.
Darius Drake (Guest) edit delete reply
Doc. Gardeviour doesn't use Psychic as an attack. She uses it to move stuff, and as a shield, not as an attack. That's why she has Thunderbolt in her "arsenal" of moves.

Not sure why she has Healing Wish, though. Maybe she's supposed to use it in conjunction with 1 Up's for emergency healing situations.

Anyone see the E3 Lineup? Looks like Star Fox can get out of the dumpsters finally.

Yeah, but as soon as they leave, Samus is moving in unfortunately.

Ability: Masochist.
Effect: Whenever this Pokémon is hit by a super effective attack, its Attack and Special Defense rise one stage each.

Aran Ryan is human, which makes him Water-Type. Water making up most of the human body, and such.

A possible idea for the comic could be a male gardivor struggling with body diaspora and depression.anyway I love the work you guys do!
Guybrush20X6 edit delete reply
Guybrush20X6
That's an interesting concept but I don't think it would suit Level 30's atmosphere.

I do plan on something related to Male Gardevoir(s) sometime in the future though and it's great we're doing something you enjoy.
DryKirby64 edit delete reply

Hi, Ceacel. Apologies for the late reply, but I've been thinking about this comment a lot. It's great that you're interested in our comic, and as Guybrush mentioned we'll be having male Gardevoir appear sometime soon.

However, I personally would be uncomfortable dealing with body/gender dysphoria. It doesn't appear that often in video games (outside of a few special cases in more story-driven games) to begin with, so it wouldn't fit the comic's atmosphere as previously said. Also, this being a mostly humor-based comic, making a joke out of a serious issue like this would generally be of poor taste for many people, myself included.

The topic hits a bit too close to home for my own comfort, as well.

Thank you for your suggestion, anyway, and for your interest in the comic. We hope to continue providing interesting content for readers like you, but for the time being I hope you'll understand my viewpoint. Again, my apologies for replying so late.

I binged this comic from start to finish. You all do fantastic work, and I wish for you to keep up with it as you can.

Just one question: Where are the Silent Hill protagonists?
TheMightyBox edit delete reply
TheMightyBox
In Silent Hill presumably.

Thank you so much!! We're glad you enjoyed it enough to binge! ^_^ If you subscribe, you'll never have to binge again because you'd be alerted whenever we update.

I'll make sure to sneak one of them in sometime, just for you. ;)
