Sorry we're CLOSED

And that was the day my Ampharos died… outside a Pokemon Center while Nurse Joy was on her lunch break.

    Later on, you see professor oak coming out of the pokéCenter and Nurse joy who say :We hope to see you again!

    Well, I guess there was no joy that day.

    What do you expect with free health care?

  5. CakeBard on November 12th, 2010 12:25 pm

    And to think you can stand inside for 24 hours everyday, and Nurse Joy NEVER leaves that table… EVER…

    I'm sad now… Ampharos is my favorite electric Pokemon…

    Well, time to get a Luxray!

    When you think about it, this is actually kinda sad… especially with Shawn's comment. :(

    Good thing there's a Pokemart next door stocked with an infinite supply of revives!

    That idiot…
    Obviously, he doesn't know how to use Revive.

    I saw the title in the RSS feed, and I thought it was gonna be an EBA joke. How foolish of me.

    Sample Artistic Analysis: Obviously the shadow on the Pokémon Center represents "the man" bringing down the boy and his Pokémon. Thus the reflection in the glass represents the boy's own reflection on what he's accomplished in life. Most notably, his inability to keep his own Ampharos alive. The pot laying next to the doors is there to accept the boy's hopes and dreams that are thrown away as a result of this ordeal.

    Am I the only one that's questioning the fact a 10 year old kid is carrying a 135lbs pokemon without any problems?

  13. Alpar on November 12th, 2010 3:14 pm

    This kid obviously hasn't ever learned how to use that money he stole from trainers to buy Revives from Marts.

    Pokemon, Rated M edition

    in all seriousness though, I too felt sad looking at that. ='(

    *EBA Agents drop in and do the Electric Boogaloo*

    Player blacked out, rushed to nearest pokemon center…

    Then your games starts up again with one less pokemon.

    We all know it isn't Joy's lunch break. She's really in there doing Brock.

    Oh well, I guess I'll go get raikou out of the compu… Damn…

  22. werewolfsfury on November 12th, 2010 6:22 pm

    what about the computer or he could fly home

  23. BackwardsSneeky on November 12th, 2010 6:53 pm

    I'm not going to lie, I shed a tear reading that. I don't think I'll be able to play R/B version with the same mindset ever again.

    At least your rival in G/S/C is a total dick.

  24. Weibbles on November 12th, 2010 7:18 pm

    Sadly…this is the fate of many Poisoned Nuzlockers. i_i

  25. Sir_Nox on November 12th, 2010 10:46 pm

    Looks like someone didn't save their game before they ran into Gary.

  26. TehVortex on November 13th, 2010 9:30 am

    Scawled in the corner: "Gary was here, Ash is a loser!"

  27. Newbonzy1 on November 13th, 2010 10:41 am

    Dang…. No pun here.

  28. musicsquid on November 13th, 2010 7:21 pm

    Your Ampharos was just beaten by to a pulp by Brock’s Onix and you run to the nearest pokemon center to heal but who’s in there banging nurse joy so you can’t heal?

    Gary Mother Fuckin’ Oak.
