Lots of fun stuff in this page. :3

So we have Kai, the Dratini. I really wanted to make a Chuck-E-Cheese joke about the Game Corner, after my brother pointed out how similar they are in HG and SS...but alas, I didn't. I'm surprised no one else has yet. XD

I spent. Two hours. On my couch. Playing Voltorb Flip. To get Kai. I EARNED that Dratini! And my Dad IS an engineer, and he HAS taught me lots about statistics and stuff that is applicable in the Pokemon games. Like catching a Feebas? My Dad showed me a much easier way to. Based on statistics.
The Voltorb Flip game is more like a mix of Sudoku and Mine Sweeper. By the time I had gotten enough coins, I actually enjoyed the game. I'd gotten really good at it. XD

And then, while training, our little Mystery evolved. *sniff* Aww, he's not the team baby any more! He's growing up! :3
His mental age at this point is about twelve years old. Pokemon can age normally, although at a somewhat faster rate than humans, if they don't evolve. If they evolve, they jump up in their mental age, how old they act. Mystery was around five to eight as a Togepi, but is now 12, maybe even 14. Hence his sudden chance in language. XD Granite, on the other hand, was around eight when he first joined the team - he's now older-minded as well, although still as cheerful and cute as ever. He's just a bit better at stating his mind. Scout, for instance, when he evolved, jumped from 14 to around mid twenties. Lacy and Donovan did the same. Kindle too. Kai is the same age as Granite, and Mystery too, around 10-12. But Mystery will sometimes act a lot older than you'd think for a kid, since he has that Psychic side to himself. Psychics age quick and are very wise, even as kids.

So there's your lesson about Pokemon aging in my comic. XD

So yep! Next week...heh guys get to meet another new character. I'm excited. :)

Also, who can guess who the lady at the counter is? ;)

Interesting idea concerning evolution and aging. Maths clearly triumphs in Voltorb Flip, and then doing the Circle of Life was cool. Hooray for Mystery evolving!

Also, after you got Kai, can you name another Pokémon Zero? *cricket chirps*
...nobody got it...

Rooke standing on the roof and Scout's reactions are the best part of this page!

so what did you dad teach you to help you get a Feebas?
DragonwolfRooke Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2014  Hobbyist Filmographer
The body of water where you could catch them, at any one time there were only 4 random tiles where you could possibly catch a Feebas. Rather than just test every tile, though, my Dad told me to just divide the pond into four sections, and only test all the ones in one section. Odds are, one of the tiles would be in the section, since it was a 1/4 chance.
dragonkingofthestars Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2014
how often does it work? you have a 3/4 chance of being wrong.
DragonwolfRooke Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2014  Hobbyist Filmographer
No, see, it's probability. Math.

If you have a space of 60 tiles, and 4 of those have a Feebas in them, then there is a 4/60 chance of the tile you are fishing in being a Feebas tile. 4/60 is the same as 1/15. So I can take the first 15 tiles of that space, and by probability, there is now a 1/15 chance that one of those tiles is a Feebas tile.

So rather than searching through all 60 tiles, I can pick a section of 15 and check all of them, and odds are, I'll find one Feebas tile in those 15. 1 out of 15, see?

Math. And it totally worked. :D

Oh, wait, do the number cards actually represent the number of bombs that surround them!?  No one told me that!  I've been a super boss at Minesweeper lately!  To Celadon!

When I played HeartGold on my Nuzlocke, I first thought that I wouldn't bother getting a Dratini since you get one for free in the Dragon's Den, but then, on a whim, just before I went to the radio tower to liberate it from Team Rocket, I went to the Game Corner and played it until I won. I did it late at night, I was bored, I was tired, and yet somehow I did better than I usually did. I don't know how I did it, but that's not important. I GOT A DRATINI. *heavenly choir*
Tango-Wolf Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2013  Student Digital Artist
When I played SoulSilver, I bought like 5 dratini after hours of playing the games.
KittyEspeon Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I spent probably close to 3 hours saving enough for Parker the Abra and Alex the Dratini... It was worth it, but annoying. Glad someone else endured such torture too!
Oh, gosh, if anyone else died I would be so sad...

dawwww i love kai.(you have 2 "i's" in native)
DragonwolfRooke Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2013  Hobbyist Filmographer
You mean naive? Yes, I did that on purpose, since the actual spelling involves having two dots over the "i", so just having one i looked weird.

Wait, wait, wait- game corner dratini, trade machoke, AND bill's eevee? just a cotton-pickin second there, young lady/sir. how do you excuse ALL of those in one area?
DragonwolfRooke Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2012  Hobbyist Filmographer
Dratini was the Goldenrod catch, Cara was my catch for a different route but I exchanged her (so Miss took the place of the route before) and Sam I pretended I caught in Ecruteak since I didn't want to draw the comic going back and forth between Goldenrod and Ecruteak. XD

Can you please tell me your strategy for the game corner? :)
Snow6131 Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2012  Hobbyist Filmographer
it is to try your best and pixelate!
DragonwolfRooke Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2012  Hobbyist Filmographer
You just pay attention to the numbers on the sides of the board, and add them up. If the row says 3 voltorbs and 2 points, leave it alone - the two points HAVE to be two 1s. If the numbers on the side add up to 5, leave it alone. If you have one column that says 4 voltorbs and 3 points, then there must be ONE panel with a 3. If that column happens to cross a row that says 4 and 3, as well, then logic follows that the one panel where the column and row cross, is that one 3 panel. It's just addition and logic, and probability. :)
jmepik Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2012
Hmm. I always go for the Dragon Den Dratini - its got ExtremeSpeed, I feel like it has better IVs could be very wrong, and I don't mind grinding it 40 levels. But I guess this works. Yay for Kai - I love Dragonites.

This reminds me of my experience playing Voltorb Flip. So confusing and frustrating. T_T

i do the same thing in all of my play throughs XD
SirUrquhart Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2012
I mentally removed the comma in "It's called called Lion King, Kai" and instead just made it "Lion King Kai" or King Kai as a lion.

What? It's late. I'm easily amused.

It takes so much time to get those pokemon prizes oh my god. XD But when your done, it's all worth it.

Is the lady your Pony OC in human form? :"D


when I saw panel 18

the song, "THE CIRCLE OF LIFE" played in my head.
Very fitting. XD

Kai is the new little guy on the team. Him and Granite, who is always adorable. :3

And yes, she is. XD

Okay, now you have to make a journal post explaining your Feebas-catching tips. (Unless of course you dad's method is 'offer something shiny on the GTS'. That's pretty much the easiest way to catch the dumb fish.)
