Well the 200 strips and 5 years milestones snuck up on me. Hard to think I've been running this comic since 2012. For context, since starting this comic:
* You can't do Aztec Apocalypse stories anymore.
* The WiiU was launched, floundered & died.
* Crash Bandicoot came back.
* Mighty No.9 was announced, funded, got delayed multiple times, insulted anime fans and then finally came out. I still haven't gotten my backer's code but am in no rush to get it.
* Nintendo finally got with the online shooter program.
* In contrast to the game line ups, Smash Bros got a better 3rd party line-up than Playstation All Stars.
* The real world did some stuff maybe, I dunno.

Only things I can think of that haven't happened are Half Life 2 Episode 3 (or Half Life 3 as it mutated into) and Kingdom Hearts 3, though that one's coming soon.

Thank you to everyone who has worked on, commented on, rated or looked at the comic or it's spin-off End Boss's World over the years.

Feel free to choose your own dialogue for after the awkward silence between those two ends.

Things that happened since 2012:
World didn't end
GameCube memory card corrupted

Attended my first local MTG event
Started playing D&D 5e with some friends (I was the only experienced player, except maybe the DM)
Managed to not wreck a car at 16 Still haven't, in fact.
And, I managed to build a good MTG deck. RIP my last one. Still don't know what happened to it.
And so much more....

5 years... 5 long years... I feel old, unlike the Doctor, who is actually you ger now.
Curiously, I recently finished reading from zero the whole Bitf series again. Good times. This comic originated from it.
The other day, my Boss Guybrush said he wished Lvl 30 could fill the gap left by Bitf at least a bit. I think it does fill it. And it fills it bigger that you hope. Thanks so much for 5 great years of fun, and to make me part of the new generation spinoff (and a little surprise for a demographic hopefully coming later). Hope you keep enjoying this as much as we do. Is hard tho. We love this comic a lot.

The Doctor? Doctor Who?
Also... I guess you could say this comic is A New Hope.

Stop doing that!! I am always meaning Doc Gardevoir when I say Doctor unless I specify.

Oh, I know. I just keep making that joke because you keep leaving an opening.

I'm thinking that last panel should be Dr. Gardevoir's new profile pic on here.

I am really glad I managed to find this webcomic series. Although the art can be a bit wonky at times depending on the artist a lot of the writing is top notch and funny.

I can't believe this has been going on this long. I've only been reading this for about a year, but I'm more than impressed that it's managed to come so far. Keep up the good work.

(Also, I'd like to see Gallade come back, see the doctor as a Kirlia and not recognize her, Just a suggestion.)

Bright colorful art, loads of typos. Fair trade?

How do we know it wasnt typoed originally?

5 years, sweet jeez, it's a shame I couldn't have know about the series sooner, I guess going through it kinda makes me old? Yeah didn't think so. Great job on the milestone though!

Thanks. I feel pretty old looking at the old comics too, especially now that Dr Mario and Roy came back to Smash.
