Who’s that Pokemon character? I dunno. But whenever people ask me “What’s you’re Pokemon strip about?” I will show them this strip. This basically sums up how I’m portraying the source material.
This page took me like 2 weeks to make. It was Panel 3’s fault, for many reasons, but I eventually settled on a slight tackle instead of a Calvin and Hobbes thing. I also have qualms about the “Professor Oak used Tackle” gag. I think it might be okay as a running joke, but I do not like using the line before the character is introduced to the main character. That builds the gap between audience and character knowledge too much.
Still, it’s a good joke. I hate the leg in panel 1 and would have covered it, up, except its kinda crucial to the story, so I couldn’t. Bleh.
