The gift exchange continues. The only thing worse than clothes for Christmas, is clothes that don't fit. Usually I leave the visuals up to the others but in this case I drew some concept art of Chansey to make sure we were on the same page for the punchline. And I think you all pulled it off beautifully.

Speaking of beautiful, thank you to all our subscribers for making us the 58th most subscribed comic on ComicFury.

And when Gardevoir turns it sideways, it becomes a vest with horn cozies.

I did try and put some thought into the color of the wrappings, it made sense to me that Roll would use bright red and green as per the tradition of the holiday, while Gardevoir would go with something more downplayed and aesthetically pleasing.

Sweatervoir is so adorable~! ^.^
There's a 65% chance she'll be wearing this thing throughout the rest of winter.

I can only hope that Layton AntiVirus is more trustworthy than Norton AntiVirus. I take pleasure in uninstalling that scandalous program from every computer I touch. >_>

Yay, sweaters!

That's Roll's way of telling Chansey to lose some weight. So insensitive...
Hero'sBlade (Guest) edit delete reply
Those sweaters aren't ugly enough.

Roll hasn't got a full handle on Holiday traditions.

Chansey seems to have had the traditional response though.

Roger Wilco deals with most of that behind the scenes. ;D

Wait, so they had a body plan for somebody with a protrusion jutting from his/her chest, but not one built for somebody... uh... round... all the way through?

This comic obviously does not take place in the States. :P

You've never heard of the rule of funny have you?

I believe this political correctness issue was also present last week.

The weird part, though, is that Roll does it due to overzealous political correctness programming, but BM and Wilco both talk like that,
Maybe, not being of this world, they learned about the holiday from Roll, and assumed that it was meant to be that way?
Or maybe they were just being sarcastic. I dunno.

Gardevoir simply teleported it on.
Sheepat (Guest) edit delete reply
Totally should just have Chansey wear that sweater whenever she's off duty
Hurricane (Guest) edit delete reply
If she knew teleport the entire time, we wouldn't see her in most of these situations she's in. Plus she wouldn't have to walk anywhere.

Maybe Roll should have asked a Pokémon Center nurse to knit Nurse Chansey's sweater.
I know it's not like that in the games, but in the anime, during the early Gens, the Nurse Joys always had some Chanseys with them, so yeah, just thought they'be be able to make a sweater for their body shape.
GigaNerd17 edit delete reply
GigaNerd17
You're making the assumption that Nurse Joy is competent at knitting, or anything at all besides nursing. ;P
Iamabrawler edit delete reply
Iamabrawler
Well, this comic makes the assumption that a Psychic Pokémon can become a psychiatrist, so... (And besides, there's so many Nurse Joys, who knows, maybe one of them has talent at knitting.)
Guest (Guest) edit delete reply
If you really want to be a stickler for rules of the universe, techicnally nurse joy does not exist in the pokemon games, (or at least never offically called nurse joy) Heck honestly I theory that Chancy came from pokemon yellow since that the only game in the pokemon games where chanceys worked with pokemon nurses.
Iamabrawler edit delete reply
Iamabrawler
Okay, I might be saying Nurse Joy, but really any human character working with Pokémon in the Pokémon universe would have been able to make a better sweater for Chansey. Who knows.

We're running a little late on account of being unable to reach Box. It's one that won't work as well without the color. Just hang on, it's a good 'un.

Sorry.
I started making headway into Resonance of Fate again and, uh,
apparently it takes a long time to do things in that game.

I realize this comment is super-late, but I just had to say it, 'cause I realized something--

Chancey is effectively calling Roll their mother. While meant with a certain degree of snark, I find that sort of sentiment was delivered in such a way that it was, all things considered, a genuine feeling: Roll, to the hospital workers, is effectively their mom.
Hurricane (Guest) edit delete reply
I don't remember which comic I saw this in, but I remember them mentioning that Roll is only about 9 years old... well, PHYSICALLY at least.

The problem with Layton Antivirus is that it lets in all those sentient computer viruses that are making the rounds after a simple puzzle challenge. The most malicious viruses aren't patient enough, so there hasn't been much call to fix the problem, but it's only a matter of time...
Agentxy14 edit delete reply
That antivirus present reminds me of a puzzle!
