He was at Silph Co. on that fateful day.

Also, just as a friendly reminder, I really appreciate when you keep your comments profanity-free! Thanks!

At least this guy isn't, kidding himself.

@Alienoid: Heehee.

Who needs just the tail when you've got the whole Slowpoke?

@HaikenEdge: I think the leaders of team rocket had too many repels at this point in time

@'spout'-themudkip: Possibly. But it's more likely that the tail's the "tastiest" part, and by keeping them alive, the tails grow back, so that you can harvest them again in a few years. Why else would they choose to take from "wild" slowpoke, instead of making a farm.

...unless...

THE SLOWPOKE WELL IS A SLOWPOKE FARM DEDICATED TO TAKING SLOWPOKE TAILS! It suddenly makes sense! That's why nobody thought that it was odd for someone to be talking about Slowpoke Tails in the middle of the street, it's a major part of what the town sells as produce!

It even explains why the old man who hurt his back at the entrance to the well is more worried about getting rid of Team Rocket than getting medical attention. It's a major part of his income, and somebody is trying to take all the proceeds from him.

@Darius Drake: Bahahahahaha it all makes sense now!

It's probably because you only threaten them with pokemon battles, and not, y'know, actual weapons?

Or just siccing your pokemon on them. That would work too.

@Nashew: Yeah... they're really not all that threatening.

Which Slow-evo are you going to go for?

Reply Surfersquid, November 3rd, 2016, 12:02 pm

@ZHODY the delfinator: Oh, Kris doesn't have a Slowpoke--I just added it in because there are a few in the well when you go in there to kick out Team Rocket. This one is probably Kurt's granddaughter's Slowpoke.

(As much as I'd love a Slowking, I don't have another Game Boy to trade with, so no trade-induced evolutions for now. :c)

"Look, it's not my fault all we're given to fight with is Zubat, Grimer, and Rattata!"

@ReaderWriterNerd&Geek: Team Rocket must be on a tight budget.

... Which is probably a good thing, I don't want to imagine a bunch of TR grunts running around with Dragonites.

@Surfersquid: I am not certain whether that terrifies me because they'd be more competent or because they are so incompetent that they should not be within ten feet of a Dragonite. XD

@ReaderWriterNerd&Geek: How about both?

Reply ReaderWriterNerd&Geek, November 20th, 2016, 3:23 pm

@Surfersquid: That works XD

That slowpoke is adorable~! <3

@Sanji: Thanks! I aim to make the Pokemon in this comic as aderpable as possible.

@Surfersquid: "Aderpable"...I like that. XD
