About

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.

Origins

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.[2]

Sub-Genres

I'VE ALWAYS GOT TOO MANY THINGS TO DO, I wiSH I HAD MORE TIME! HELP ME SPIRIT POKEMON! GUP ol

Nuzlocke Comics

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.


Hey Gramps, I'm fed up of waiting! Hurry up and give me your balls! Go ahead, pick one! Inside these balls are creatures called Pokemon! I used to be a hotshot trainer back in my day, I'll have you know! My dream was to collect every Pokemon in the world! But I'm too old! So you do it instead! Blah blah blah, Old age blah blah, What was his name again? Blah blah... set Tap* Sup? Ah, I see you have chosen the Fire-type Pokemon, Ch IN THAT CASE, I PICK SQURITLE!


This example of a Nuzlocke Comic was created by Know Your Meme user Jack Candle. You can find the entire comic here.
