Trainer Tips
Red’s meteoric rise to fame might have seemed much more amazing if 95% of his opponents had any common sense.

    Swearing would have made the first gen Pokemon so much better.

  2. SirNumel on November 24th, 2011 2:19 am

    It's true. Most Pokes go ga-ga for the occasional Rare Candy.

    You know who's got a lot of feelings?

    How dare you wreck my childhood with logic!

  5. SushiGummy on November 24th, 2011 2:30 am

    Psh. So Pokemon are only good when they're evolved?

    Tell that to Joey's Rattata.

    his secret. its MOUNTANS!!!
    specifically Mt.Silver… oh those slopes

    I stumbled upon you in your natural habitat.
    I got my Pokemon to beat the shit out of you.
    I captured you, in a near-death condition, regardless of your family and friends.
    I used you to fight Pokemon you didn't even know, and some perhaps you did.
    I commanded you to fight, expecting quick and accurate results.
    I even watched you die.
    Multiple times.

    But it's a good thing you love me!

    Common sense eh Red?
    Does that mean he learned something at Pokemon School?

  9. Sonicsmash2 on November 24th, 2011 2:53 am

    Pokemon has taught us the truth about love and kindness.<img src=""&gt;

  11. Nick Soapdish on November 24th, 2011 3:40 am

    Wait, this coming from the guy who never evolved his Pikachu?

  12. JboneDRS on November 24th, 2011 4:10 am

    I don't know… I think I'm going to stick with my 3 Geodudes.

  13. Sir_Nox on November 24th, 2011 4:14 am

    A winning team isn't made from love, it's forged by fire.

    Use a bunch of different types of pokemon?

    Don't you mean…use a bunch of psychic pokemon?

  15. sisseltheundeadcat on November 24th, 2011 7:33 am

    Use a whole bunch? Don't you mean get a pokemon with the ability levitate, only use dig and never use any other pokemon? I'm pretty sure that that's what he meant……

  16. CriticalQuit on November 24th, 2011 7:39 am

    You know, Red has a point. It's one thing to keep your pokemon in basic form to hold out for a move it learns earlier or solely in that form…

    But some of those people are just doing it on PURPOSE!

    Especially in G/S and HG/SS. There's like 2 dozen first stage pokemon across all of Johto, between all the trainers. Which sucks, because it made leveling a fuckin' chore since all the trainers gave shit experience with their basic mons.

  17. sisseltheundeadcat on November 24th, 2011 7:45 am

    Okay I'm sick of wondering so I'm just going to ask regardless of the fact that I'll almost certainly get -1'd for it.

    can somebody tell me a good website to post pictures on so I can put custom pictures in my comments? what the hell do you guys use?

  18. Vabolo on November 24th, 2011 8:30 am

    Well, as the Beatles would say, "All you need is proper EV training!"

  19. Niteclaw1028 on November 24th, 2011 10:46 am

    What Red isn't realizing is that Lance does the exact opposite with his lvl 47 and 50 Dragonites

  20. Fluffy_Quack3r on November 24th, 2011 10:57 am

    Its funny because its true…

  21. misterz100 on November 24th, 2011 11:22 am

    Dam for the life of me I can't remember the name of the person interviewing him.

  22. inb4SlenderMan on November 24th, 2011 11:23 am

    is that why he hangs out at Mountains? so he'll never see those high leveled first evolutions?

  23. misterz100 on November 24th, 2011 11:24 am


  24. Deep Thought on November 24th, 2011 11:25 am

    Don't be such a baby. Ribs grow back

    (No ze don't)

  25. Seto_Kaiba on November 24th, 2011 11:37 am

    Uh duh.

    Everything else is relatively to scale.
    Charizard is about 3 times bigger than it would be normally.
    Pikachu is almost 7 times bigger.

  26. PortalMan118 on November 24th, 2011 12:15 pm

    The sad thing is that guy DID have two Pidgey's.

  27. Omnomynous on November 24th, 2011 12:19 pm

    Yep, Red got his ideas right. You want to know why you don't love your pokemon?

  28. Mindlessinvalid on November 24th, 2011 2:32 pm

    The Beatles are on the other side of the proper training debate, "All you need is Love!"

  29. Trainer_Black on November 24th, 2011 4:06 pm

    Jimmy! Jimmy I saw you're eyes! Don't you walk away from me!

  30. Red on November 24th, 2011 4:40 pm

    I'm sorry, but I never gave a radio interview. That me is obviously a spy!
    *sends out (insert fire pokemon here), which roasts "Red" from the comic*
    See, just watch; he'll turn into Gary any second now

  31. Red on November 24th, 2011 6:26 pm

    over your smugleaf?

  32. Immortal_Mook on November 24th, 2011 6:48 pm

    You can't win with first level Pokemon you're attached to?
    Seems like I need to teach this guy the power of friendship!
    To Mt.Silver!

    *And Immortal_Mook was never heard from again.*

  33. VyseRogueKing on November 27th, 2011 9:02 pm

    What really surprises me is that there are crazy dudes with level 20+ magikarps some a whole team full of them. And then there are others who managed to get pidgeots at level twenty-something before they evolve Then there's lance with his impossible dragonite but I forgive him because it's A MUTHA-%&*#ing DRAGONITE!!

  34. Zeeb on November 30th, 2011 12:44 pm

    Forgot the “Bad Grammer” tag.

  35. chaos1224 on November 30th, 2011 11:51 pm

    yet he has the same pikachu since the 90s

  36. 167kamon on July 20th, 2012 11:25 pm

    The evil teams of the regions are the worst. I'm going through Gold fighting rockets with freaking level 20+ Rattatas and Zubats.

    Meanwhile, Lance is at Indigo Plato with three under-level Dragonites! IMPOSSIBRU!
