Otaku Contemporary Ep. 4 by Quasimanga Otaku Contemporary Ep. 4 by Quasimanga
Are you a master? Have you caught them all? Did you raise a Magicarp into a Gyarados? Well, I sure as hell haven't caught them all, but that doesn't change the fact that I-AM-A-POKEMON-MASTER! Here’s my proof:

Even major celebrities like The 1-Up Show’s Jeremy Parish, and Shane Bettenhausen are willing to leave the closet and publicly embrace the Pokemon Masters within themselves. I hope that the readers of this strip are willing to do the same themselves. Let's throw off our shackles of shame!

PS. I’ll post my Pokemon Pearl friend code later.

Let’s be friends!

Well, I may have been a huge fan, but never THAT badly! I would pretend my stuffies were Pokémon and make them fight all the time, but NEVER would I commit animal abuse!

This is funny though.

Evolution doesn't work that way! Evolution only happens when you have a palmtop computer of some type and lots and lots of youthful burning vigor!!!

GO, FLUFFY! CHANGE INTO POWER!!!

XDDDDDDDDDDDD I've actually told my dog (named Arcanine, caving into my older brother's protests against Growlithe and him growing as big as on) to use bite attack and other various, more realistic Pokemon attacks on our other dog.


Before they ran away. (Gee, I wonder why?)

That's so funny. I love it

I ALMOST caught them all in Pokemon Gold (I was only missing 4 pokemon)

and yeah....kids would be dumb enough to do that nowadays (kids will probably start trying to use ninjutsu too XD)

AWESOME! That means you're a total Pokefreak. Don't be shy. Post a picture of your Poke-collection. I'd love to see it.

>kids would be dumb enough to do that nowadays (kids will probably start trying to use ninjutsu too XD).

Kids are kids. When I was a kid we didn't have any of these newfangled NARUTO ninjas. All we had were ugly green anthropomorphic turtle men.

I had such an unhealthy obsession with Ninja Turtles. I wanted to find a tub of mutagen and transform myself into Donatello. In a way, I got my wish. I became a nerdy loser who never leaves his shell. TURTLE POWER!

By the way, aren't you 17. You're still technically a kid, you know?

Knowing the generation behind me of Pokemon players this could very well happen.

I'm scared. o-o

stupid Magikarp XD I never used Gyarados anyway, even though I got em. You can catch them wild eventually so I saw no point either.

My cat would sooner evolve into a slowpoke. And my brother's...can a cat evolve into a crack addict? That thing is way too big on catnip.

Animon (Animal Monsters) never die, but they do often faint after combat.

Rover is just taking a well deserved rest.

Well...I wouldn't personally do that to my pets, but I can imagine all the younger "Pokemon obsessed" children of the world trying this on their dogs and cats......

....I wonder if this sort of thing happens often….

I hope not. I don't want to have to click through any more warning screens before I'm allowed to play my Nintendo games.

You should try it again. It's just as much fun as you remember.

Lindsay just did it for the third time! Yesh!

Though it's tempting (who doesn't want a badass Gyrados) I think I'm going to put my resources elsewhere.

Yeah I think I just cheated and used the magic candy duplication trick my second time doing it. Or something. I'm a bad gamer.

I used to play Pokemon allllll the time in high school. Back when the screen was one color- green! And you only had Pokemon Red and Blue and you were grateful for it! Ah, I'm old. Also I loved Pokemon Stadium and that pokemon photography video game, I thought that was so cute. The game is just so addicting.

>The cat always wins.

Not in every case. For one, it seems that the cat was a much higher level than the dog. Normally Fury Swipes has an attack power of only 18, but since the cat was fighting-type and the dog was normal-type the attack was super effective. These two factors combined lead to the dogs quick KO.

Dammit! You're right!

That's what I get for trying to be funny before I have my facts together. I have to admit my Pokemon was pretty rusty at the time. I just picked up Pearl that day and hadn't really played it yet. Had I made the same comment today, I would've never made such an amateurish mistake.

...I'm so deeply embarrassed...

Trainer QUASIMANGA was defeated!
You received 478 Pokemon yen!



Gotta catch 'em all!

Stupid Nintendo! They were totally playing up to the penguin fanatics with this one. ;)

I wonder if Nintendo has a poll up for which starter Pokemon you chose. It would be interesting to see the results. Like I a Rorschach test for all humanity.

I'm a Turtwig type personality.
