    The day we get a proper answer to how tall the grass is, is the day we truly find out the sexuality and the gender of Him from the PowerPuff Girls.

  3. VyseRogueKing on September 14th, 2011 8:49 pm

    It's also capable of hiding full size dinosaurs.

    I imagine Suicune would use it's powers over the aurora to conceal itself with light…or not. Either way.
    As for Entei, who needs to hide when you can just sleep-walk straight through buildings?

  5. Jet_Sparrow on September 14th, 2011 8:54 pm

    And yet Eusine still wasted his life being unable to find them…

  6. Jet_Sparrow on September 14th, 2011 8:55 pm

    …Minimize.

    They're an electric tiger, a burning lion whose roars set off volcanoes, and a leopard who is the embodiment of pure water.

    They fight crime.

  9. TheInsaneWombat on September 14th, 2011 8:55 pm

    I'd guess about as tall as the grass in that Super Effective strip.

  10. Gentleman Eraqus on September 14th, 2011 8:55 pm

    And the day we truly find out the sexuality and the gender of Him is the day Kotick finally decides to stop ripping people off.

  11. TheInsaneWombat on September 14th, 2011 8:56 pm

    "Okay, the woods are burning down. It's either nothing or Entei…. Meh, probably nothing."

    Is probably how trainers manage to not see a pokemon that size.

  12. ExplainTheJoke on September 14th, 2011 8:57 pm

    Can any of them learn minimize? 'Cos if not, you're just gonna look stupid.

  13. Alpar on September 14th, 2011 8:57 pm

    Which is also the day Valve learns how to count to three.
    And when Shenmue and Dark Cloud 3 get made.
    And Xenosaga 4.
    And the day M. Legends 3 gets released.
    In fact, it'd be a lot of things. So you get the idea.

  14. Alpar on September 14th, 2011 8:58 pm

    Clever girl…

  15. Alpar on September 14th, 2011 8:59 pm

    Clearly that Zubat's a jetpack in disguise.

    They hide in the grass the same way that pokemon hide in caves, i.e. hell if I know.

    The grass is so tall that I need to use Cut twice to clear the field.

    A very select few Pokemon can learn Minimize… these three are not among them.

    This is Halolz. We quote only in lol. :P Of course I got to say whenever I see this scene or I think of the Sniper from TF2 I'm reminded of the other.

  25. DiamyoAlex on September 14th, 2011 9:24 pm

    Thats nothing, Onix can appear out of no were in caves!

  26. spaghettiweegee on September 14th, 2011 9:25 pm

    I dunno. Perhaps, similarly, we should ask "Why can't we encounter these creatures outside of the tall grass? Do they bare similarities to vampires and other undead and are weakened by sunlight? But then again, what of the games that implement the Real Time Clock feature, such as Crystal and Diamond/Pearl? Even at night, you can only encounter these creatures in the tall grass. So perhaps, we come to consider that the tall grass is the source of life for these creatures? Perhaps being outside of the tall grass is dangerous to their health. Perhaps, after being out of the grass for too long, the life force of Pokemon is drained? Surviving out of tall grass for extended periods of time is impossible for them. Maybe they're not hiding. Maybe they're restricted to tall grass due to some unnatural need for its sustenance. Maybe, by catching Pokemon, we're actually dooming them to a slow and painful death, keeping them out of the tall grass they need to survive!"

    Or…

    Or we could just say it's because the game designers will it. =|

  27. CriticalQuit on September 14th, 2011 9:25 pm

    Latios and Latias do they same thing, are almost the same size, and they FLOAT.

    fucking running legendaries

  29. MC Ninja on September 14th, 2011 9:27 pm

    Zubat couldn't learn Fly until Generation IV. Clearly, this Zubat has migrated from Sinnoh.

  30. CriticalQuit on September 14th, 2011 9:27 pm

    The day Square Enix decides to make games instead of interactive films again.
    The day Sucker Punch works on Sly Cooper again.
    The day a Duke Nukem game is made in less than 10 years.
    The day non-Title Defense Glass Joe is difficult.

  31. PyroCatheter on September 14th, 2011 9:31 pm

    Easy. Glue.

  32. Gentleman Eraqus on September 14th, 2011 9:33 pm

    Well, the people working on Sly 4 have Sucker Punch's blessing. That's gotta be the next best thing.

    The day Rob Liefeld learns proper human anatomy
    The day Japan stops hoarding the good games from the US
    The day a Sonic game is done right
    The day utter crap stops showing up on the front page of DeviantArt

  36. Ovahdrive on September 14th, 2011 9:56 pm

    Wouldn't it be easier to put them all in pokeballs?

  37. Psychopatrick88 on September 14th, 2011 9:57 pm

    Critical Quit: Your first one: Deus Ex: Human Revolutions

  38. Ovahdrive on September 14th, 2011 10:00 pm

    Maybe its because animals in general that stand out in the open get eaten by predators and Darwin was right.

  39. TheTopHatKid on September 14th, 2011 10:00 pm

    Unless the insides of pokeballs are lined with the same life-giving essence as tall grass?

  40. CriticalQuit on September 14th, 2011 10:00 pm

    Yes. And I am very happy about its being made in the first place, and I'm going to go ahead and be optimistic about Sanzaru.

  41. CriticalQuit on September 14th, 2011 10:00 pm

    I've never played that game.

  42. TheTopHatKid on September 14th, 2011 10:02 pm

    Knee high grass? Oh, come on! It's got to be at least… waist height!

  43. Psychopatrick88 on September 14th, 2011 10:02 pm

    It's. Awesome.

  44. Ovahdrive on September 14th, 2011 10:03 pm

    Why the hell has there not been a raptor pokemon yet? We got T-Rex, Pterodactyl, and that stupid thing that hits stuff with its head. RAPTOR WANT

  45. invadingduck on September 14th, 2011 10:06 pm

    Use a terrifying roar.

    Run away like a girl.

  46. CriticalQuit on September 14th, 2011 10:12 pm

    My desktop PC is broken and I can't afford it for console anyway.

  47. Sid_Diddly on September 14th, 2011 10:23 pm

    The only answer I can think of is that Raptors are such a nasty thing and they're side-by-side with some of the more ruthless killers of the prehistoric era. Granted the T-Rex and Pterodactyl aren't snuggly-bunnies but when people think of raw killing machines -- thanks to Jurassic Park -- they think the Raptors (No one remembers the goat leg scene!).

    This is a problem given the fact Poke`mon don't die. They faint and lets be honest they really push an stretch that pretty damn far to the point of being a moot point anyway since Poke`mon clearly *can't* heal on their own. They need Pokecenters.

  52. AManWithACloak on September 14th, 2011 10:45 pm

    Well, some pokemon can learn recover and soft-boiled and such.
    Also, it's only free for pokemon, not people.

  53. AManWithACloak on September 14th, 2011 10:47 pm

    1st: No idea who that is.
    2nd: Learn Japanese and import.
    3rd: Sonic Generations looks promising.
    4th: It only shows the most recent stuff, not the best.

  54. Passerby Boy on September 14th, 2011 10:48 pm

    There is actually a jet pack attached to Squirtle that you can't see behind the zubat

  55. AManWithACloak on September 14th, 2011 10:49 pm

    Maybe it's not "I'm hiding in grass.", but "The grass is head height and you can't see through it."

  56. Psychopatrick88 on September 14th, 2011 10:51 pm

    Still, anything that Square Enix has had a hold of recently has been like poison to a company.

  57. Psychopatrick88 on September 14th, 2011 10:53 pm

    1st: http://www.progressiveboink.com/archive/robliefel
    2nd: Possibly
    3rd: We've been saying that about every last sonic game in development
    4th: No, it displays pics that were nominated by people.

    4th: No, you can have it display the most popular OR the newest.

  78. Jimmy on September 15th, 2011 2:53 am

    SINCE WHEN!?!

  79. NekoKnight on September 15th, 2011 3:13 am

    It's really a mix, in my opinion. Raikou is unabashedly a tiger. Those canines (punny!) are distinctive to large cats. Entei definitely has some lion elements, such as the mane and parts of it's "mask" resembling fangs, but its shaggy coat is more characteristic of certain dog breeds. Suicune has a dog-like build.

    So in the end, we have a cat, a dog, and hybrid of the two. What a compromise!

  80. dope92 on September 15th, 2011 3:39 am
  81. Zyquux on September 15th, 2011 4:05 am

    Entei's 'Dex entry mentions volcanoes erupting when it barks, so I'm more inclined to think it's a dog.

  82. NekoKnight on September 15th, 2011 4:27 am

    The majority of it's 'Dex entries states that it roars, something only big cats can do. My theory of Entei being a Cat-Dog holds true!

    Actually, if Bulbapedia is anything to go by, the legendary trio are based on certain real world legendary creatures as well as being an agglomeration of various other animals, particularly canines and felines.

    Legendary Pokemon based on real world legends? We need to go deeper.

  83. Seanhl on September 15th, 2011 6:35 am

    my favorite part of that comic is definitely entei's eyes in the first panel

  84. Shatman on September 15th, 2011 8:30 am

    Only if he brings Captain Unova.

  85. Randomexplosions on September 15th, 2011 9:17 am

    I think that the Pokemon hiding in the waist high grass is logical… We just have very tall 10 yr olds.

  86. IncredulousEric on September 15th, 2011 9:22 am

    Well you have to include how to handle this problem:

  92. Skrist on September 15th, 2011 12:06 pm

    Giraffes can't talk… Girafarig apparently does in the show and can bark in game… This is why pokemon need to exist for real.

  93. Skrist on September 15th, 2011 12:08 pm

    If the tall grass has anything to do with the United States, it's the sinking economy. Getting harder to fuel those gas-powered lawnmowers.

    they dont die/heal only in the kid safe anime…
    I saw an arbok surviving getting cut in half, and magmars getting frozen and destroyed in the manga

  108. HCP on September 17th, 2011 8:43 pm

    Entei is the largest of teh three and is smaller than a real life male lion.
    Minivan my arse.

  109. AuraBlaze on September 17th, 2011 10:53 pm

    Entei grows to be 6' 11". A lion grows to be a little more than 4'. I think Entei does become the size of a minivan.

  110. HCP on September 18th, 2011 7:27 am

    Entei: 2.1m and 198kg
    Lion: 2.5m and 250kg*
    Minivan: 4.6m and some couple of thousand kg I'd guess
    Unless you expect me to believe the given height of all pokemon is strictly vertical (but then Yanmega makes an idiot of you; I'm reasonably certain the height characteristic measures its body length) and that vertical height is the only relevant factor when determining the 'size' of something.
    But if you continue to assert that point, then I guess Entei is roughly the same vertical height as a minivan. You know assuming it stands fully upright and makes no effort to hide in the grass whatsoever.

    *High range admittedly
    Measurements given in metric because better/what game freak actually uses

  111. SonicsmyName on September 21st, 2011 7:17 pm

    Y'know, the first time I saw Giovanni crush those Magmar, it shook me. I was 16 years old, had seen plenty of gore elsewhere before, but by god, it SHOOK me. Pokémon weren't supposed to die, they might get harmed grievously, but they didn't ever die. Until the manga. I have to be honest though, seeing that, I knew this manga would forever, no matter what, hold more respect with me than the anime ever EVER could hope to achieve.

    Actually, just returned from Bulbapedia; It was just another one of the brainless schemes of Team Rocket. He never got fired or thrown out.
