Dude, that comic is truth.  Kids nowadays are growing up fighting with fucking Bidoofs.  I mean, the early pokemon had vaguely clever names.  Now it sounds like the translators are just naming every other pokemon two or three random syllables.  Hey! While you're at it, why not just name every other pokemon "Asscunt"?

The old pokemon were a bunch of shit. Jinx, Duduo, Polygon, Zubat, Jigglypuff, Bellsprout. These were all pretty useless pokemon when it came time for the Elite Four.

What I'm trying to say is that for every 5 shit pokemon there's about 1 good pokemon, regardless of game/Generation.

Quick note, though.

This is like saying food is shit because lima beans, brussel sprouts, liver, okra, and geoduck are all horrible things to serve at dinner.

The point I was trying to get across was that a vast majority of pokemon, new and old, aren't all that appealing. When I was a kid and played Pokemon Blue religiously with my friends we never used pokemon like Caterpi and Weedle seriously, the only reason we did was so that they would evolve and our pokedex would be complete with their evolutions.

Dude, whoever said Zubat isn't cool should talk to fucking Crobat. Anything that evolves in Crobat is badass. I'm most amused that someone thought it was important to state that stage 1 Pokemon are useless against the Elite Four. Breaking news, guys.

Alright, Geoduck creeps me out, but lima beans and okra can be fucking delicious if you do it right. 

Bellsprout was the most useless Pokemon ever.

That's my bad, I should've stated their final evolutions as well. Victreebell vs. Dragonite. GO!

Jigglypuff

Oh, this is a pokemon? I guess that makes sense, I was wondering where the character came from. There was one guy I used to play Super Smash Bros. with who was unstoppable with Jigglypuff. It was so weird, because for everyone else the general consensus was that that character sucked.

Well there's also the whole... type advantages thing... if you were going to throw something up against a Dragonite that didn't have an Ice move or something else that was super effective against Dragon, then you deserve to lose. But Victreebell could go against several Elite Four Pokemon.

Basically, it's a linear game and all of the Pokemon aren't going to be awesome against everything and some of the early obtainable Pokemon are going to be weaker. They all have their place. Except for maybe Delibird or something.

Actually, if you were clever about it, Jinx is a good character to use against the last two elite four members.  Especially that Lance dude and his dragons.  Polygon is only good for evolving into Poly-Z, then maxing its Spec.Def.

Man, fuck spec. def.  Who cares about stats anyway

except attack and strength, those are good ones

No way man, bellsprout makes a good one to teach cut to early on.  Plus if you keep using it an evolve it into a victreebell you can fuck shit up.

I'm just sayin' having an un-evolved bellsprout against the elite four is no bueno.

Not true, charizard, mewtwo, and a few others can have attacks that are super effective against every type.

With the controller in the right hands Jigglypuff was about the most annoying charecter to go against.  I say about because I still have nightterrors about Kirby.

Dude, Theme Park! At least the one i used to play, which was technically called MacTheme Park, was full of epic win. I could make the millions in that game, and then move to Greenland, where my park would completely and utterly fail. My favorite part about it was that if you got too far into the red you'd commit suicide in a cutscene.

Now that I see it it actually says Zoo tycoon got relatively poor reviews, and its not as good as the computer version, sad! Now I have to think of other games I could get for the DS besides just Pokemon, since all of the really good ones seem to have come out in 2005.

I am so bad at it!  I start off good, get broke, take out a loan, do awesome, then epically fail.  I havn't committed suicide yet though!  It's super fun despite my lack of skill!

Well, Pokemans it is, cause I just got a DS today and a copy of Pokemon: Diamond! Man, I had dug out my GBA and my copy of Pokemon Red this past week and I gotta tell ya, switching from First Generation Gameboy graphics to the semi-3D touchscreen version is pretty nifty. There may be a whole lot of changes in between games but since I haven't played since Gold version, woo doggy.
