Sorry this was a bit late. That's what I get for sitting on a half done script for too long. Serious internal debate on whether it should have an ape attack or not. I blame myself for forgetting that in comedy writing, you should only ever consider removing the ape attack when the stunt chimp is on strike.

In the context of defusing awkward social situations, it seems Kirlia clipped the red wire instead of the blue. All that's left to do is to run and hope you have all fingers intact.

Poor Gallade, years since his last appearance, only to get Banna-slamma'd into a coffee bar.

I was never so glad about the fact Infernape thought that Gallade was trying to get a chance using the "niece" and not... another misunderstanding. But I guess Gallade still draws a line somewhere.

So glad to see him again, we need a bit more Gallade imo. Cool page too.

Infernape has a low opinion of Gallade but it's not that low.

At first I thought niece was a misspelling.

Who was gardevoir mage calling? Dawn? Someone else?

Man it really ruins the foreshadowing question when you only have one answer.

Was Kirlia talking like a Pokémon there? She usually speaks English, not whatever you call the Pokémon language

Yep, she can talk like a not-Team-Rocket's-Meowth Pokemon if she chooses. Why she doesn't do it when she's alone, that's another mystery.

"Can you make me a call?"
WM dresses Dr. Kirlia up as Call.
"Thanks."

Roll: Doc? Why are you dressed like a 2.0 version of me?

I wonder if they'll ever do a callback and have Call back in the comic? It'd be fun to see Roll get angry at her again.

So even Gallade don't know what a Gardevoir looks like
That one Voir (Guest) edit delete reply
Poor Gallade. I think he recognized her, but I dunno.
Red Feather edit delete reply
I think you're right. You could see his face as he realized it. I think Kirlia realized it when he realized she was Gardevoir
MichaelgRook edit delete reply
I think that was kirlia running away as the situation had escalated into something not even she can handle.

I wonder if the Ape Escape kid can handle fire monkeys.

For a brief moment I forgot that was Brewster at the bar and thought it was Napstablook in the second-to-last panel.

Comic's going to be late this week due to vet trips.

Hold your horses! You really think we'll fall for this? I'm at the end of my rope with shoehorned ads like these. Get lost or I'll punch your lights out.

Not to worry, I'll use my mighty mod powers to DELORT that ad.

In future, just leave messages informing me that they've shown up. Otherwise it's just left with you screaming at nothing.
