The term Pokemon Comics relates to fan made comics about the Pokemon entertainment franchise, parodying the Pokemon video games and their many complexities and anomalies. They can range in quality from professionally drawn webcomics to amateur MS Paint creations.
The first Pokemon video games, Pokemon Red and Green Versions, were released in 1996 in Japan. They were released in the United States in 1998, with Blue Version replacing the original Japanese Green Version. It is safe to assume that Pokemon fan art and fan fiction may have appeared as early as this, although they may not have arose on the internet until later, due to the inception of user generated content sites such as DeviantArt.
Data from Google Insights for Search shows several peaks in interest corresponding with the release of several Pokemon games.
This genre of Pokemon comics originated on Tumblr in November of 2010. A typical strip would have a person, usually the artist, finding themselves in an everyday predicament. They summon their “Spirit Pokemon” to help them out. Hilarity ensues.

This genre originated from participants in the Nuzlocke Challenge, in which a trainer must catch the first Pokemon they find in an area, and no others, in addition to releasing all Pokemon that faint in battle.
Many challengers log their Nuzlocke challenge in comic form.
This example of a Nuzlocke Comic was created by Know Your Meme user Jack Candle. You can find the entire comic here.
