this one goes out to Chris Boblit, who once said something similar to Dan's sentence in the second frame.

more Eelektross/Emolga comics. also, as it turns out, the first Tynamo i caught just HAPPENED to have a jolly nature! so great. it was so helpful, especially since i'm not really a fan of the idea of breeding just for stats and stuff. i make a strong connection with the pokemon i catch, so it would have been pretty hard for me to breed a Tynamo like that.

as such, when i am participating in the forthcoming Grey League (Gray League?) from the awesome Pokemon Podcast: It's Super Effective, i will probably just be using my originally caught Pokemon. seriously- it's a very good podcast, that i definitely think you should listen to if you like Pokemon at all, and they're doing this amazing thing where people are trying out to be Gym Leaders, and "trainers" can battle them online with Pokemon Black or White versions, and when you beat the gym leaders, they'll send you badges! and if you beat all of them, you can challenge the Champion! it seems so great, and they say they'll have prizes for winners and Champions who have long winning streaks. you can learn more at their site- they've got a whole thing of beta rules listed.

more Watership Down stuff, sorry. this is inspired by a Fandom Secret from a little while ago.

as it turns out, i've gone with the Elektross. i've been training her specifically so that she's faster than the average Eelektross, so that's cool. also, i guess at this point she's not an Eelektross, she's just an Eelektrik, but after i level her up some more so she learns some more powers, i'm going to use the thunderstone that i just got on her. i'm debating whether or not i want to wait for her to learn Thrash (which is a pretty cool move) or if i just want to swap one of the other pokemon on my team for an Axew (which i'll evolve into a Haxorus) that i can teach Outrage, because it's pretty much exactly the same move except Axew'd get a STAB from Outrage, and Eelektross wouldn't get that from Thrash, so Outrage on the Axew would be a lot stronger. i dunno. that'd require switching one of my team members, so i'm not sure. we'll find out what happens.

this is number 232!

it's kind of fun drawing Elliott with extra hair on his head, he ends up looking pretty silly. also, i really do need a haircut soon, and i almost cut my hair tonite, but i did my taxes instead. i might cut my hair tomorrow, it's hard to tell.

also, i'm sorry, but this is another Watership Down reference. really, you should read the book if you haven't, it's fantastic. i have an extra copy if you want me to lend it to you and you're in the southeast Idaho area. for those of you who don't speak any Lapine, "thlayli" translates roughly to "fur head" or "big wig."

seriously, a couple weeks ago i found a shiny Pidgey while doing my Nuzlocke run on LeafGreen, and it was the most amazing thing i've ever witnessed. also, i had to change my Nuzlocke rules, because i'd already caught a pokemon in the area, but it was the only time ever (other than the storyline shiny Gyarados from Gen 2) that i'd ever seen a shiny. oh man, it's so fantastic. she's bright gold, and she's incredible.

this comic goes out to Tim and Liz O'Brien, and i guess to anyone else who is a fan of Watership Down. dude, seriously, it's such a good book. if you haven't already read it, you really should.

Dear Jimmy,
I'm so glad that you and Stephen Colbert are BFFSMs. So great. If you weren't, he might not have come on your sow to perform absolutely the best live performance of any song ever- Rebecca Black's "Friday" a week ago. That seriously was a highly magical moment, and no other show could ever provide me with entertainment so fantastic as that.

Also, when you had Paul Simon and STOMP! on to sing "Cecilia," it was so amazing! That's so cool that you were able to sing that with them! Fantastic. Man, I seriously love your show, and I wish I could be friends with you.

Thanks for everything, and I hope your weekend is great.

this (sort of) is my team so far in Pokemon White. shortly after i drew this, Bartleby, my Herdier, evolved into a Stouland (which, as it turns out, i think i regret. hopefully he'll grow on me.) and i think i might switch out Elliott, my Emolga, for a Tynamo (which hopefully i'll be able to EV train for speed, so it won't be so incredibly slow... i've never EV trained anything before, though, so we'll see what happens), because then i won't have as many flying types on my team, and also because Eelektross (which Tynamo evolves into) is way hardcore. also, i'm totally looking forward to when Lyle evolves, because Krookodiles are wicked cool. plus, i named mine after the book Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile.

also, if you're in the southeast Idaho area, you should totally try to find the fantastic Dave McNeill and buy a copy of his brand new minicomic, Thursday Night Crime Fight! it's incredible, and definitely worth the $1.25 that he's charging for it. here's the cover:

this is number 227, and hopefully i'll have another up tomorrow. we'll see what happens.

it's true, i just finished reading a book (God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.) and re-reading Watership Down is next on my list. i'll be pretty occupied for the next little while, it's true. the last time i read this book, i ended up writing like three or four comics about it, if i remember correctly.
