We restore your tired Pokemon to full health. (comic)

Hey don’t judge, do you know expensive it is to make the technology to instantly heal all your Pokemon? This is way cheaper and helps keep the government funded Pokemon Center system from collapsing under the country’s latest budget crisis!

    I guess, unlike the Aperture Science Handheld Portal Gun, PokeBalls cannot withstand temperatures of up to 3000 degrees Kelvin.

  2. Onecanofsprite on October 24th, 2010 5:39 pm

    I never knew Aperture Science ran the pokémon centres…

  3. Flamerider on October 24th, 2010 5:44 pm

    There's just only a ~slight~ problem with this theory.
    They have to get another Legendary, even though they are one of a kind.

  4. Th3l4st0ne on October 24th, 2010 5:49 pm

    So…why does they always have the same moves and levels as your old one?

  5. NoChorus on October 24th, 2010 5:51 pm

    So technically, you could "catch them all" by breaking into that part of the Center and stealing all of the Pokeballs.

    Why any Pokemon villian has never thought of this beats me.

    I'm assuming that you originally said:
    "YES! Let them all burn in the depths of Hell! The tormented souls shall be innumerable!"

    And then 4Kids used their evil powers to censor "Hell" with "shadow Realm" and "Let them all burn…" with "Let their souls burn…"
    Their evil tendrils of power criss-cross every information highway. My Blue Eyes White Dragons can't stop them. My money can't stop them. Even my screwing the rules can't stop them…

  7. Link4all on October 24th, 2010 6:03 pm

    Glad they have spare Arceus just sitting around…

  8. reverendki11joy on October 24th, 2010 6:08 pm

    now i feel like an jerk for going to the Pokemon center while they were all still in the green just before i save just because everything must be, SPIC OOND SPAM!

  9. NekoKnight on October 24th, 2010 6:34 pm

    Wait did you really just stick that mystery-pokemon-GSball-we-don't-know-what-it-is into that that emergency-pokemon-recovery-incinerator?

    /switches to monotone
    You know…. I just figured out what that thing you burned was…. It was a dropped plotline in the Pokemon anime… I won-…der whaaat hapened to pRofEsSoR Ivy….

  10. MasterLuigi452 on October 24th, 2010 6:36 pm

    And people say that the nurses are innocent.
    BTW, didn't I find and posted this on CoF Fourm in the first place?

  11. CapnJakeBob on October 24th, 2010 6:46 pm

    I saw the title on Twitter, and I was expecting this exact strip. When Halolz loads, OH MAAAN My psychic prowess was proven once again.

  12. Neentendow on October 24th, 2010 6:54 pm

    I have a question for you, Shawn.
    Wouldn't it cost more to buy all those Pokeballs?

  13. smartmonkey on October 24th, 2010 7:00 pm

    If that doesn't work. Use more fire.

  14. Mentlegen on October 24th, 2010 7:03 pm

    Wait! That's why everytime i give then a pokémon with a nickname they give it back with it's default name. I tought it was a bug!


  15. AquaLink on October 24th, 2010 7:03 pm

    they get used to increase the temperature of the fire until they themselves die and are then thrown into the fire to burn, which works, since becoming old causes their fire resistance to go down and eventually die when they do

  16. AquaLink on October 24th, 2010 7:07 pm

    all they need is an action replay, done deal. or just canceling trades halfway through or whatever cloning technique you decide fits better

  17. TehVortex on October 24th, 2010 7:12 pm

    Ironically, the most efficient way to cure my pokemon's burn status.

  18. smartmonkey on October 24th, 2010 7:13 pm

    Why do you keep asking for charity. I true gentlemen would rather try to earn it rather than to beg like a no class hobo (excluding dr.Hobo).

  19. Neentendow on October 24th, 2010 7:15 pm


  20. Kaylem on October 24th, 2010 7:17 pm

    Oh, it's Awkward Zombie.
    I'm okay with this.

  21. Th3l4st0ne on October 24th, 2010 7:26 pm

    You're lost in the wood? No Pokemon center in a 30km radius?
    Use the new method: Cooking!
    Cooking your Pokemon fully restore their health and happiness!

    Disclaimer: We are not responsible or any damage to your pokemons or other people when…

  22. Spartan_Laser on October 24th, 2010 7:39 pm

    Wait, my Chikorita's a different level than before,
    and a different gender!!!
    and has a different name!

  23. OrionX on October 24th, 2010 8:09 pm

    *after some time*
    Heyyy… I thought my Pokémon had an Adamant nature… And I know I pumped it full of Proteins earlier… So why did it only gain +1 Attack after that last level up? MY PHYSICAL SWEEPER IS RUINED!!!

  24. Spartan_Laser on October 24th, 2010 8:43 pm

    one more thing: who keeps a Pidgey in an ULTRA ball?!?

  25. Shatman on October 24th, 2010 9:35 pm

    Excuse me, I'm going to go catch Wotter.

  26. demospyro on October 24th, 2010 10:03 pm

    Now that I think about it… wouldn't it be cheaper to have insta-healing balls instead of several buildings that require 24 hour lighting and enough living expenses to house a full grown women and her pet/partner?

  27. Illius_Nakarou on October 24th, 2010 10:51 pm

    How do you think the pokemon centers run with energy when there are obviously no power lines/ power plants in the world?

  28. DM1293 on October 25th, 2010 12:42 am

    Where does the Incinerator go? To local restaurants. And who eats there? Trainers! And thus is the cycle complete.

  29. dope92 on October 25th, 2010 1:06 am

    you betrayed me chansey

  30. Deep_Thought on October 25th, 2010 1:08 am

    I said this would be what would have happened if Brock Obama was put into office, but no.
    He got voted in anyways, and what happens?

    Pokemon death camps.

  31. AdamTheChao on October 25th, 2010 1:34 am

    Look's like your Pokemon,
    Are getting fired up.

  32. JboneDRS on October 25th, 2010 1:34 am

    The little jingle you hear is actually the muffled screams of your poor Poke'manz

  33. triadle on October 25th, 2010 6:22 am

    Oh no, my shiny Ponyta!

  34. TehVortex on October 25th, 2010 8:22 am

    Clearly the Thick Fat, Flame Body and Magma Armor abilities, not to mention years and years of getting hit by Flamethrowers, Fire Blasts, Flare Blitzs and the like mean nothing when confronted with the Pokemon Center furnace.

  35. Leo E. on October 25th, 2010 9:41 am

    Um… I think you just posted furry porn.

  36. Vlauer on October 25th, 2010 10:04 am

    I get it! Pokemon Centers use incinerators producted by Aperture Science, AND then they switch burned Pokemons to those stole and sold to them by Team Rocket! I'm a genius!…. Wait a sec, Pokemon Center is free, yet they have to pay? They must be selling this friggin lemonade in secret…

  37. Dimomarg on October 25th, 2010 10:22 am

    oh, just wait till you see the Pokecenters run by hitler.

  38. MasqueNoMercy on October 25th, 2010 11:19 am

    the only way the comic could have been made better is if they added screaming to the incinerated pokemon

  39. GuessWho666 on October 26th, 2010 1:18 am

    But what if I only wanted to get rid of poison on 1 of my pokemon and I'm too cheap to buy an antidote?

  40. BoxeyBrown on October 26th, 2010 2:33 am

    Meh, whatever gets me a pokemon that's able to destroy again.

  41. HeavyDDR99 on October 28th, 2010 9:17 pm

    god…just go and live with your fangirls

  42. nobody679 on November 3rd, 2010 11:03 am

    how come they have the same items then?
    that means….they have MANY rare items.0.o!
    if they have that much items i wish i can steal them -_- or buy them…..

  43. Larknok1 on November 8th, 2010 1:03 am

    Bullshit. It's impossible to get a Feraligatr in anything but a pokeball. Think about it. You can't catch it anywhere in the wild, the Totodile you get from the Profesors are always in pokeballs, and if you breed it, it goes automatically into a pokeball. HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAX.

  44. xxpikalexxx on November 12th, 2010 6:11 pm

    How would you get feraligatr in anything other than a pokeball?

  45. pokecsm on January 4th, 2011 3:59 am

    Now everytime I need to heal up, I will think my poor pokemon will share this fate :(

  46. Goldngreen on March 21st, 2011 5:34 am

    There are way too many plot holes in this comic for me to find it funny.

  47. acemaster on January 25th, 2012 5:16 pm

    legendary pokemon?
