Props to Darkangelx on DA for the classic Pokémon GB font.
I continue on my quest to be the world’s foremost authority on drawing Gyarados.
Well, I just laughed out in glee. Wonderful work on expressive Mr. Fish, and the first panel does an amazing job conveying the chaotic battle conditions.
Damnit, now I can’t wait for next week.
…. wait, shake? … how…?
Now we’ll never know.
I have to say, this particular sequence made me want to see a slightly different sequence: Scooping them up, then using Hyper Beam instead of chewing his food or spitting it out.
Which promptly made me wonder why the games never gave mechanical bonuses for such brilliant freestyle combos… :’D
Actually, it does with certain moves. For instance, using roll-out, after using defense curl gives you pretty much an instant crit.
And Discharge, after using Charge :D
Actually, Defense Curl simply doubles the power of rollout for as long as the pokémon that used it remains out. It’s a tag. If [it has defense curled] then [rollout deals double damage]. But rollout starts out with a power of only 10, so that doesn’t really “instant crit” (actual critical hits have additional effects).
Furthermore, Charge doubles the power of ANY electric move used directly after it, not just discharge. They simply have matching names.
GEEZ you GUYS.
Actually, roll out’s starting power is 20. This means defense curl turns it into 40-80-160-320-640 (I think). Pretty insane.
Combine with +accu lens or something for massive lulz. Flying / fire / ice / bug gyms won’t know what hit ‘em.
Guess I wasn’t the only guy who figured out you can ROFLstomp over half of Johto with a pissed-off Geodude.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^this. that is all.
Well, how about Rain Dance/Thunder to ensure that Thunder doesn’t miss. Or Sunny Day/Solar Beam so you don’t have to waste a turn charging up the attack. Or Sunny Day/Morning Sun to completely heal HP.
That works with sunny day/moonlight too. As the sunny day move in japan actually just means clear skies.
I’m predicting a horrified reaction by Jared, or a skyward NO!
Horrified reaction? This is going to be awesome above and beyond any pokemon ability ever.
Jared was happy when his head-smacky fish turned into a giant seamonster. Now that giant seamonster forgot how to shake, but learned how to channel the power of a distant unholy star through his mouth? That would cheer up any trainer ever.
Well, I’m sure Jared worked REALLY HARD to teach Mr. Fish to shake.
Move tutor, give heart scale, relearn move
He’d use his tail, I’d imagine.
I gotta admit, I had not thought of that. Pretty clever.
I was thinking tongue. Like how he hugs. But that works better.
My mom has taught all of her dogs that “shake” means “shake the water out of your coat,” so I assumed Mr. Fish shakes in that sense. Causing a small earthquake in the process.
But Gyrados can’t learn Earthquake…
He doesn’t have to know the move Earthquake to start one.
Yes it can. It’s one of its most useful moves.
Indeed. Sending out an Electric type to get the x4 Damage Bonus? EARTHQUAKE STRIKE
Air ballooned. ):
He’s sexy and he knows it…
Fish would use his tounge to shake jared’s hand.
On a related not, How did he use Chomp, or that head butt thing if he dosn’t know those moves?
your out of moves the Pokemon uses it’s reflexes. Are you surprised that the Pokemon Jared used to whack other Pokemon with has head butt as a reflective move.
On that note I’m glad “Don’t eat wasn’t taken off the list. Seems important.
“Don’t Eat” is actually the secret to Jared’s success with Mr. Fish. He’s trained Mr. Fish to the point that he defaults to a normal attack, he actually has to use a command to get him to NOT attack something. Hence Mr. Fish’s ability to chomp and squish goons without Jared telling him too.
“Don’t eat Jared” is the full name. Equally important, but and for a second I thought the punchline was going to be him forgetting it.
The move is actually “Don’t Eat Jared”. It’s two lines.
I always read that as “>don’t eat” and “>fetch Jared”…
I could see Jared training his sea monster to come get him if he gets into trouble…
I think “Don’t Eat Jared” is important to Mr. Fish’s success anyway. I think “Don’t Eat Jared” is shorthand for “Eat Everything BUT Jared”, thus explaining many, many scenes involving Mr. Fish eating things that are generally frowned upon for Pokemon to eat. Like Pikachus.
I’m pretty sure it was don’t eat [thing/name here] and fetch Jared.
See he has a move called don’t eat which by logical conclusion means that if tha move is not used he will eat them by instinct
the move is “don’t eat jared” not “don’t eat” pretty important one to keep.
I unknowingly taught my dog the wrong action for “shake”. See, upon command, he will not hold out his paw as if initiating a hand shake. He will literally shake his body from snout to tail. This was mainly for the purpose of not having to wipe him down after he took a swim or got wet. It had the extra effect of being rather funny to randomly tell him to shake. Because of this, I imagine Mr. Fishes shake is something like that.
omg..the sequence of faces.. LMAO
Truly! I thought I was gonna lose it over that sequence of facial expressions!
Also… holy monkey on a stick, but Mr. Fish is now officially the most badass member of the party… and would be even if the Commander was still himself.
I can see tears coming to Jared’s eyes in the next comic XD
Yeah, the sequence of faces is great.
When he forgets Shake, even he looks confused as to how he’d Shake. Though I am glad that Don’t eat Jared is one of his moves. :3
The last panel is a perfect “I’mma firing my lazorz!” face.
Actually it’s chargin his lazor.
Hyper beam doesn’t need charge, but the poké must rest after use.
Look, it’s the attack animation, don’t get all pedantic!!
actually, charge/vs rest is a mechanic.
Plus I thinks it’s been established that they aren’t going on “turn based’ rules here.
Well, this is the internet so…
SHOOP DA WHOOP
BRACE FOR EPIC
Put a dollar in the epic jar, Efaj!
No no, this one’s legitimate.
I disagree. Please look up the original definition of “epic”.
epic, adjective definition 2. Heroic or grand in scale or character.
Epic was used incorrectly as a noun there, I would have been forgiving if it had been saying to prepare for something epic, not just prepare for epic. I do believe this is a dollar in the jar situation.
The use of the “dangling adjective” as above is in fact an acceptable construction, as implicitly understood to imply a truncation. Whether or not the OP understood this is up for grabs however.
Also, this post is off the edge of the box and I can’t see what I’m typing, what’s up with that?
I placed 50 cents in the epic jar…
Because we all know words never change meaning, and no new words are ever introduced. All languages are exactly the same as the day they were designed.
Indeed. At this occasion I do believe that the circumstances fit the requirements to be called Epic
I must agree. This is one of relatively few situations that calls for the use of the word “epic”. This is beautiful.
LET SLIP THE FISH OF WAR
Hi there, long-time reader, first-time poster here. Just wanted to say that I’ve been a huge fan ever since I started reading MGDMT over a year ago.
That said… Shit’s gonna get real here, now that Mr Fish has Hyper Beam in its arsenal. On that note, I wonder what a Pokemon game would be like if there were actually moves like “Roll Over” etc.
No comments like “First!” from me, but I am surprised that you got this week’s comic up surprisingly early.
I cannot wait to see how everybody reacts to the docile, silly Mr. Fish gaining a level in badass and blasting Hyper Beam like a boss after only having kinda useless moves like Roll Over. On the other note, it’s rather frightening… hopefully Mr. Fish doesn’t get too careless with his newly acquired skill.
This comic is one of the finest I have found on the internet, and I cannot even express my delight for this early comic enough.
(And on the Pokémon game with moves like “Roll Over”, that made me imagine a poke-agility game with Mr. Fish rolling over the props… cute.)
I would imagine that in a Pokemon battle, using “Roll Over” would go something like this:
MR FISH USED ROLL OVER
MR FISH ROLLED OVER [your trainer name]
[your trainer name] FAINTED
In fact, I would say that “Roll Over”, “Shake”, “Don’t Eat [your trainer name]” and “Fetch” would all end up with a bad end, and the only way to level up Mr Fish in battles is to keep switching him in and out.
mr fish used roll over
mr fish rolled over any pokemon smaller then 10 Ft
its super effective!! (unless ghost, sadface)
Or steel I assume
I am calling this right now, at some point Jared will make Gyrados learn a move like tail whip and replace hyper beam with it.
That said, I love this comic and today’s strip was absolutely amazing.
Yeah, I can’t wait to read over the whole comic again and come back to this page. It is so awesome!
I think the best part of this is yet to come; Mr. Fishy-fish (Believe I’m quoting Jared here, not sure) is about to use hyper beam, yes, and mercilessly slaughter a large group of Rainbots, yes. But what happens when he falls asleep after firing his laser?
“Don’t eat Jared” move. LOL.
I was reading it more traditionally, and saw ‘Fetch Jared’.
Either way, it’s awesome. :D
Don’t eat, and Fetch Jared.
Two different moves sadly
Yes, but you could use Don’t Eat on Jared so that he would not eat Jared.
Thing is, I don’t recall situations where Jared said “Don’t eat” and Mr. Fish obeyed. Anyone remember the Pokemon park? It was a buffet in the end…
Jared didn’t tell him not to eat the pokemon in the park. He was too busy arguing with the girl in charge.
That’s why I said it was like a buffet. Jared probably used Don’t Eat off panel once he realized this.
Now I expect to see “Don’t eat Jared” get deleted at some point.
I was expecting that one to go, honestly.
The derpy face of forgetfulness just made my day.
I guess if you bludgen enough androids into submission…
Hyper beam huh? I guess Mr. Fish was already at quite a high lvl, like 65 or something?
Oh also: SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEee HYPAAAAAAH BEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMMMMMM XD
I fear for the day Mr. Fish decides to forget Don’t Eat Jared.
Woah, level 47 already for Mr. Fish.
Hehe, love it! I’m always impressed the amount of style in this comic.
I had read “Don’t eat” and “Fetch Jared” resoectively but it’s indeed funnier when it’s “Don’t eat Jared”, oops!
I read that at first as well hmm..
“Roll over Jared”, “Shake Jared”, “Don’t eat Jared”, and “Fetch Jared”.
“Hyper Beam Jared”
“Hyper Jared Beam”
Me too. I figured “Fetch Jared” was how Jared gets rides, and “Don’t Eat” is a command Jared to give to keep Mr. Fish from eating stuff that Jared would rather not have eaten. Works either way, to me.
I wonder, does Mr. Fish have the ability Intimidate or Moxie? Gyarados can gain either one in GenV now, and if he has Moxie then the more Rainbots he kills, the stronger he gets.
Only for the first six which would result in 250% power….oh sh***** f**************** d************ m********** with a s************** in a h*************.
It would result in 400% power. Six stages, 50% boost per stage, that’s 100%+300%=400% power. FFFFFFFFFF-
I thought it was 25% power per stage?
I don’t think it can be Intimidate because everyone just kind of ignores him. And since Moxie’s a Hidden Ability, Jared must have inadvertently hacked Mr. Fish with all the pre-evolution bludgeoning.
There’s an ability that does that now? I feel bad for the guy that messes with me when I get generation 5! Watch me eventually get an already-great pokemon with that ability. Perhaps Rayquaza or something if possible. Or a really weak one like a Magikarp that I can use to give me a reason to laugh in the enemy’s face when I win with it. XD
I’MMA FIRIN’ MAH LAZOR!
SHOOP DA WHOOP!
LOL THAT’S PERFECT! XD
Hyper Beam… Is Samus going to run out shooting rainbow beams of horrid death? I would adore that!
i request a full shot of mr fish’s “chargin mah lazar” face without the words so i can use it as a timeline photo. that and i think it’d just be awesome to have a print of it or something for my wall
I second that notion for a fullscreen size of that shot of Mr. Fish ‘Chargin His Lazor’ sans text bubbles. A large “Hyper Beam” would suffice.
thinking about that, i can’t help myself on thinking the wallpaper of jared over gyarados in the pink background while he charges his laser XD
This may fall into Coela’s being uncomfortable with drawing Mr. Fish for profit. It’s why we don’t have a Poké Face shirt.
That last panel….ahhh…scary….
Mr. Fish looks haunted… T_T
Ms. Squid, I believe that you have achieved your quest. Though not a connoisseur of hand-drawn pokeymans, I am impressed. I will gladly throw my weight behind your candidacy for the VERY BEST. You, indeed, are like no one ever was.
And this pokeyman now understands the power that’s inside.
oh mr fish, your mother would be so proud of you!
Is he… staring at that box with the moves?
Aw, Mr. Fish looks so confused at what the text box is!
Oh man, can’t wait to see how this one goes. It’ll either blow the crap out of everything or he’ll just cough something gross. Either one sounds great.
It’s a Gyarados.
It’s going to be like a laser pointer.
Wait a minute — Shake? Oh, that is hilarious! Poor Mr. Fish, Jared made him learn that just to laugh at him, right? Well, who’s going to be laughing now?
See, now a situation will come up where Shake would have been more useful than Hyper Beam.
What limbs has Mr. Fish to shake with?
It uses it’s “limb” THE ENTIRE BODY :D
Alternatively, Shake is picking shit up with his mouth and whipping it back and forth.
…And now I’ve got that hideous song stuck in my head. Nngh.
I ask this to everyone that seems to like the like FMA… (fullmetal alchemist)
@Hughes, do you like FMA, if so, what season?(Brotherhood, Sacered star of Milos, etc.)
BTW Hughes dies in “Brotherhood”, and Mustang finds out that Envy that killed him- The phrase “Die-hard”, was taken to a whole new level of awesome…
Shake is never more useful. Frylock, on the other hand…
This is glorious.
I guess you can expect to see a lot of comments about Gyara for games that aren’t Gen 1, but that seems to be what Pokemon generation Jared is playing. So he probably doesn’t have an ability, and Hyper Beam is actually good (and physical as well)!
Fuck yeah! :D
GO MR. FISH GO!
Yes, Mr. Fish, who was already epic, just gained a ton of EP (epic points). Now that his epic moveset is enhanced by hyperbeam, none but the Epic Commander Badass could hope to stand against his epicness. I’ll say it again: EPIC! *inserts 20 dollars into the “Epic Jar” for future use of “epic”*
OH SHIIIIIIII-YOU WEREN’T KIDDING ON TWITTER WHEN YOU SAID THIS COMIC WAS ABOUT KICKING ASS AND TAKING NAMES!!!!!
CAPS LOCK BECAUSE AWESOME!
The most beautiful part of owning a Gyarados |D Once it learns all the kickass moves and you are killing bitches.
More proof that in a fight between the protagonist cast and Gackt’s army, the winner is the audience.
Coelasquid, may I have that last panel as a 1280×800 wallpaper with the text boxes, please? (And maybe the bottom text box moved up so it’s not hidden behind the windows taskbar?)
I second this notion!!
Maybe instead of a comic one week, Coelasquid can give us a wallpaper instead? Of magic epiness?
Next week should just be a wallpaper sized picture of Mr. Fish destroying everything with Hyper Beam :D
With a Shoop-da-whoop face! :D
Yeah! I’d like too! Pretty please with sugar on top ñ_ñ
YES THIS. With all my heart I will make it my wallpaper forever.
Please! Though I’d prefer a 1920×1080.
In all the time reading the comic, I think this might be the most amazing moment. It’s so full of glory and promise!
I love it.
I just realized that the only thing that could have made the Avengers better, would have been a Mr. Fish cameo.
Things definitly would’ve seemed fishy then.
YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! *puts on sunglasses*
YES!! THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN THE BEST CAMEO IN ENTERTAINMENT HISTORY!! XD
Aaaaaaaand it just became worth tying him to the roof rack. Way to earn your keep, Mr. Fish!
Y U SO AWESOME
Now I’m so in love I’ll have to spam-share this wherever I can.
I lost it at Mr. Fish using his face to bash pieces of robot into the ground, the serious contemplation at which move to delete finished me off.
“Don’t Eat Jared”? Wow…Mr. Fish has more problems than I thought he did…
BUT NOW HE KNOWS HYPERBEAM! LET DEATH RAIN DOWN UPON THEIR ENEMIES!!!!!
No pun intended, I’m sure.
Bullshit. PUN WAS INTENDED TO BE PUN AND THAT IS THAT!
Oh, this is going to be gooood. I fully expect an “IMMA FIRIN MAH LASAR”! face in the next episode.
Awwwwwh Mr. Fish!
Jared must be such a proud Poke-mommy right now.
(I also CANNOT wait to see the Commander’s “not bad” rageface.)
My fiancee had funny commentary/interpretations about Mr. Fish’s faces just now, thought I’d share them too.
Starting at “Mr. Fish wants to learn Hyper Beam!”
“What’s this, I can learn a new thing!”
“Hmm, but I already know four things…”
“I *can* forget one of them…”
“What to forget?…”
***derpy-face of forgetful + CUE TEH SERIOUS***
“AAAUGH WHATS THIS SHIT COMING OUT MY THROATTT IMMA HURL”
It sounded better in her derpy-voice. :<
Oh God, the way he’s still fighting in his fourth panel like in his Magikarp days is fucking killing me, it’s too good.
I see Mr. Fish never learned how to think with portals…
YES! Hyper Beam EVERYTHING!
But he’s clearly using headbutt in the fourth panel, that’s 5 moves!
Nah, he’s using Struggle, so it doesn’t count.
Headbutt? Pretty sure that’s Skull Bash.
Yay, Mr. Fish! :D
That’s just how it goes in Hazzard county – just when things are lookin’ bad, things work themselves out quick-like. It looks like Mr. Fish there is about to unleash Hyper Beam on them there Rain-bots. Could be a whole lotta hurt.
The gang best get their collective hides out of the way afore they end up fallin outta the frying pan and into Boss Gackt’s fire.
And then Mr. fish immediately forgot ‘hyper-beam’ in favor of ‘eat cupcake’.
Why can I hear Mr. Fish burning as he uses hyper beam?
Perfect move set is perfect.
Watch as Hyper Beam does absolutely nothing because of a Gyarados’ low Sp. Atk stat. XD
before the introduction of giga impact, hyper beam was a phisical move you know? :S
Sadly, Hyper Beam isn’t very good for Gyarados any more. However, I’m pretty sure Mr. Fish operates on 3rd gen or older rules, which would make Hyper Beam pretty fantastic.
I get this feeling Mr. Fish is looking around because it’s as though a voice is calling those text blocks out and he’s looking for the voice. Also, is anyone else afraid he’s going to miss or it’s going to be pathetic?
just you and vizardjeffhog apparently
This is amazing
ok i need the last panel as a wallpaper now
. . .
. . .
. . .
!!!!!! FIINAALLYY !!!!!!!!!!!!
Wait a second. How the hell did Jared teach a giant dragonsnake to shake? What does Mr. Fish shake with, his tongue? xD
leedle leedle leedle leedle
At least Mr Fish didn’t have to forget the move Breathe.
I reckon Mr. Fish isn’t very nice if he’s got bowel problems.
Robot and small pokeflesh is hell on the bowels
Yes. SO MUCH YES. You must make this sequence into a wallpaper! Or At least that last panel. PLEASE I’M BEGGING YOU.
I want panel 9 without the text as my background! I mean, the last panel is cool and badass and all, but I am more into funny as a background. And panel 9 is the funniest thing I have seen all day.
I’m calling shenanigans. Mr. Fishy was clearly using Skull Bash in the fourth panel, meaning he knew five moves.
Negative. This is in fact a modified form of the Roll Over technique.
Precisely – it’s “Roll over forwards”. And the first 3 panels were “Don’t eat” – (un?)fortunately, Jared doesn’t have enough Gym badges to make Mr Fish always obey him…
Well… At least Jared’s concussive training taught Mr. Fish how to use Headbutt… I can’t help it, but that specific panel is my favourite of this bunch, even though the last one is absolutely epic.
Ahem* Holds out “Epic-jar”*
Not sure what Mr. Fishy does in panel 4. Is he headbutting bots or did they taste so awful that it is just multiple-face-to-floor for ruined taste buds?
And now watch as Mr. Fish NEVER uses it. XD
And one of the bots has Jared!
Go Mr Fish! The last panel is ace!
Am I the only one who thinks it’s kinda cute that when Mr. Fish had the opportunity to unlearn “Don’t eat Jared” he went for “Shake” instead? Daaaaaaw!
Are we not assuming that the trainer gets to pick?
This IS Jared we’re talking about.
It’s about time I commented on this comic again. I must say, Mr. Fish is the leading authority on bashing his own face in just to crush the remains of his enemies. Who else thinks that would look undeniably funny? XD Also, I like how Mr. Fish seems confused about the words at first, and then he sees them, chooses what to get rid of while making a derp/me gusta face, and then suddenly looks like he’s about to explode but doesn’t care. XD
Mr Fish learned Hyper Beam. Shit just got real.
Pray he never forgets Don’t Eat Jared.
This does make me wonder two things… One, how did he learn to shake, as he has no arms, or limps of any kind? Two, will he hyper beam Jarid next time he asks for “shake”?
On further thought, does Jarid know he learned something new, and what he gave up for it? This seems like it was entirely Mr Fish’s decision.
Mr. Fish tried to use Don’t Eat Jared, but he’s too tired.
Mr. Fish is loafing around!
I now want the last panel as a desktop background more than I have ever wanted anything. That way, whenever I open my computer, I can be reminded of how awesome life is capable of being.
Question; Does Mr Fish love Jared? Or does he hate him?
He clearly loves him! That’s true Pokélove
Oh the faces.. Best Ever! Haven’t seen a more clear chain of thoughts in a pocket monster (apologies mr Fish) since this http://www.rarecandytreatment.com/comics/1105078/behind-the-mask/
Also, mr Fish thinking face is Commanders’ grumpy normal face.
I’ve loved Mr. Fish as a character since he was introduced. His dour-but-obliging relationship with Jared has been awesome, and this strip continues that trend. We’ve got the attacking-with-his-face that is the primary attack Mr. Fish has been ‘trained’ with. :D We’ve got Mr. Fish having ‘Don’t eat Jared’ as one of his four tricks, which says a whole lot about that relationship. And now we’ve got 100% pure awesome in the form of eager, squee’ing Jared as trainer to Mr. Fish, force of utter hyper-beaming devastation. If that doesn’t earn Jared some ‘manly’ points, nothing will. ^.^
First thought in head: “I’MMA FIRIN’ MAH LASAR”
I think this is the most coherent I’ve ever seen Mr. Fish look all at once. It’s fantastic.
Can’t wait to see what’s going to happen.
Darn, the HTML tag didn’t work. Obligatory Imma Firin Mah Lazor Song
i want that last panel as a tshirt, but the back of it.
and on the front i want normal mr fish chilling being boss with a list of current moves, then the quote “until one day”
look at back of t shirt “MR FISH LEARNT HIPERBEAM!!!! “
Dude, you already ARE the world’s foremost authority on drawing Gyarados. Mr. Fish is my favorite character! Haha I love that guy.
I love how, thanks to Jared using him as a blunt weapon in all those matches, Mr Fish’s default combat move against non-tasty enemies was still “Kill them with your face”.
ALL OF MY UPVOTES!
oh shit! RUN! RUN AWAY AS FAST AS YOU CAN!
At least it didn’t chose “Don’t Eat Jared” by itselft.
THIS IS MY NEW FAVORITE ONE!!!!!!!!! I’M GONNA DIE LAUGHING!!!!
I believe this may be the best strip yet.
I’ve come to the conclusion that Mr. Fish really needs his own feature length film.
Pretty sure if the picture of Mr. Fish using hyper beam was a wallpaper it would be my wallpaper forever…
I can’t decide what’s my favorite part…the fact he seems to be searching for the source of the sudden font voice or reading his move pool. Although I do like that Jared seems to be slipping out of a Rainbot grip in the first panel, nothing like a slick medic to keep the group runnin’
I like the don’t eat Jared one
Last panel —> Priceless! XD I LOLd so much i almost crap my pants.
Is…he just headbanging the rain bots?
…”Don’t Eat Jared” counts as a move?
Think of it as a Counter.
Jared used Being Tasty!
Mr. Fish used Don’t Eat Jared
Oh god I totally lost it at the fourth panel. Someone needs to make that a gif IMMEDIATELY.
Any chance of getting a high rez of the last panel to use as a desktop background?
Mr. Fish’s expressions! Oh my Lord, this is hilarious.
I know, I this is the most emotion we’ve seen in any given strip of Mr. Fish.
I second all the requests for the last panel being a desktop wallpaper, with or without the text.
The fourth panel cracked me up so much. I can just picture Mr. Fish using his face to flatten his enemies over and over. I have not laughed this hard since you showed Jared swinging Mr. Fish like a bat!
This is awesome. :D
I love that Mr. Fish is fighting by slamming his head into the ground…I guess Jared trained him well
The last time we saw Mr. Fish “Shaking Hands” was in strip 420.
“Roll Over” occupies the same spot as “Splash” would, so it is either splash or whatever move Jared used in strip 150.
“Don’t Eat” is Mr. Fish’s understanding of the pokemon move “Bite.” “Bite, but Don’t Eat.”
The last move is either “Fetch” or “Fetch Jared,” but it wouldn’t make sense for Jared to teach him to do that, unless “Fetch Jared” was Mr. Fish’s understanding of “Help, Get Me Out Of This Wacky Situation!” Still, if I had a pet fish, one of the first things I would teach it is how to fetch coins at the bottom of fountains and stuff. That would teach it the basics of “swim to this spot” needed to master pokemon moves like “Surf.”
You are putting entirely too much thought into this. Says the girl who will still buy B/W 2 because they got me when I was 8.
Looks like you followed one suggestion Can’t wait to mine! (kid Icarus Uprising characters in the comic) who wouldn’t want to see those characters in here, most of them are badass particularly Magnus and Dark Pit who with me.
This demands a photo in sepia of Jared taking a photo of Mr. Fish doing SHAKE in front of a bunch of scared Jigglypuff and other cutesy PKMN fauna.
Oh…. Everyone’s going to hate me for this………………………………………..uhhh……………..um…………I think a violent Milotic would make a good significant other for Mr. Fish. They could kick the crap out of each other out of love…………. Please don’t belittle me.
I kept reading the movelist as “Don’t eat” and “Fetch Jared”, haha. I love the expressions throughout the comic. And how Mr. Fish just slams on the enemy like he did as a magikarp.
YES! Now, Mr Fish, HYPERBEAM!!!
Jared really needs to catch a few more pokemon, he could conquer the entire world.
D’aww… That’s actually kind of adorable: He had the option to forget Not Eating Jared, but chose not to.
Mr. Fish was using Headbutt over and over before leveling up, despite not knowing Headbutt.
Oh well, I take pleasure in seeing him smash his face into the ground over and over, just like Ed does so well.
Just came across this today & read it from beginning to present. This is the most awesome comic I have come across in awhile. Only bad thing is, now I’m caught up with my reading and have to get my fix in one little page a week. :(
I have to say, thanks for the great entertainment!
Ah, I remember when my first Gyrados became useful. Congratulations Mr. Fish!
Now that’s what I call character developement.
All I ask, is that the last panel be made into a desktop. I could die happy then.
Okay but what will Mr. Fish do now when he meets the president or some other important dignitary?
He rolls over, of course!
At some point Jared will die and Mr. Fish’s tears of sorrow will bring about the Care Bares. Mr. Fish will promptly eat the care bares and the joy of them being gone will bring Jared back to life.
Or he’ll be zombie. Whatever.
Words cannot describe how awesome it is to watch Mr. Fish chew ‘em up and spit ‘em out, and then bash them with his face repeatedly.
I have a feeling we’re about to see Jared’s glee face taken to a whole notha level…
“IM A FIRIN MAH LAZOR” BLARRRRGH
I’m imagining the Pokemon Stadium announcer voice coming out of nowhere. Poor Mr. Fish is so confused. Then again he’s probably wondering if the text box is tasty.
OMCHUTHULU This is going to be so epic… but not as epic as this comic… I now have a new fave I wish to beg for this comic as a wallpaper I will pay monies!!
Mr. Fish: FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF-
*scene cuts to a shot of planet earth*
I think this is my favourite comic of yours to date!! I love the looks on Mr. Fishes face and the final scene is freaking sweet! LAZORS!!!
Anyone else feel like Mr. Fish is trying to figure out where the hell that voice is coming from?
I just assumed he was thinking in the third person…but you also raise a good point.
Absolutely. My first assumption was the facial expressions were basically him going “da fuck is this”. And then derp, he forgot.
The brilliance here is that to forget a move Mr. Fish first gives himself the “blunt force head trauma” that was mentioned in an earlier comic.
In my day the skies darkened and hopes were dashed when hyper beam was launched, the cataclysmic roar crushed even the strongest of wills.
Now all I want to do is see the results of Mr. Fish using Roll Over.
This is going to be amazeballs.
I was just playing Full Throttle for the first time in probably… lets say 9 years, and realised how much Ben is like the Commander! Awesome.
I seriously love that game but not enough people know it… and ot was released the year I was born hehe
Seeing Mr.Fish with his mouth open is awkward.
I can picture Jared riding Mr. Fish to glory, while Mr. Fish lazers everything in sight. The Commander will be so proud.
I guess Mr. Fish leveled from all of those Pokemon he’s eaten…
Really, no one wants to see Kid Icarus: Uprising characters?…………. thats kind of saddening, and rather dissapointing… not one person wants to see those characters?
Hey, could we get a Mr. Fish Expression pack? Cause I love his expressions more than just about anything.
It’s those awkward moment I realize Jared takes such a good care of Mr. Fish, Mr. Fish might have absolutelly maxed EV/IV, I realize 255 EV on everything is technically impossible(“techinically” because you can always hack your way to it), but wouldn’t be the first time Jered completelly ignored the game mechanics…
Also, if the fact Jered lives in a secret base is any indication, Jered is a 3rd Gen trainer, which means Hyper Beam is still a Physical move, and given a Gyarados epic *pays one dollar* base Attack AND the fact Gyarados learns Hyper Beam on lvl 55 in Gen III… I don’t know who it will hit, but it will hurt… a lot…
The worst part about this, of course, is it only has 5 PP.
I’m surprised no one noticed that yet.
I guess “Don’t eat” really would be on that list. And it gets, what, 5 PP?
MR FISH I AM SO PROUD OF YOU ;n;
What happens when “Don’t Eat Jared” runs out of PP?
not sure if don’t eat jared, and fetch, or don’t eat, and fetch jared
I love how Mr. Fist still bashes things with his head.
Wow, going over my previous comments I realized that I totally called the hyperbeam moment on the jiffy pop comic. Coincidence is great.
Best. Page. EVAR!!!
Single most glorious moment in this whole comic. You go Mr. Fish
Mr. Fish. Still levels up by severe blunt trauma.
