Pokemon: Future Days by SamC-Art Pokemon: Future Days by SamC-Art
A short comic strip I made today, laughing at the idea of Pokemon getting seriously dark

Thanks for all the attention on this. For Pokemon fans avidly asking me to make more, I did this as satire and don't plan to continue. I'm definitely not enough of a fan to create a serious dark comic about it, I just like making overly-serious comics to laugh at. I'm glad people like it on whatever level though :)

If you like this, check out my weekly comic The Big D at www.thebigdcomic.com Its a crime noir story about a detective with a penis for a head, I'm sure you'll be interested!

Gostei essa foi bem forte a eu gosto do visual sombrio gosto mais dos finais felizes :D (Big Grin) mais esse é um grande trabalho de arte mesmo sendo muito triste Waaaah! 



Aqui a tradução para o meu idioma:

Outra noite sem dormir, pensando nos tempos de ouro antes da Guerra. Sem nem mesmo perceber, eu estava sendo treinado para me tornar uma das mais perigosas Crianças Soldado de todos os tempos. Naquele tempo em que tudo o que importava eram algumas insígnias de ginásio. E depois das insígnias vieram as medalhas. O que dizíamos mesmo? "Temos de pegar todos" Essas são as mesmas palavras que eu dizia a meus homens no campo de batalha da Vitory Road. Ainda com o sangue do Brock nas minhas mãos. No tempo em que o Gary era apenas um garoto chato. Chato mais alegre. e um bom rival. Pobre Gary, ninguém merece aquilo. Nós éramos apenas crianças... +fav

Yes, actually. I wouldn't have the time and don't know enough about the franchise to write a script, which is a big reason for not doing it. If you'd be interested, or know someone who would be, email me at contact@samcarr.net

X and Y have pretty dark themes, it's true...war and Pokemon dying? I guess the demographic is shifting to older kids, now.

I actually think there was some sort of attempt to do a serious Pokemon thing, a long while back Kotaku featured it. I don't remember it getting far before I stopped reading, but it had a similar art direction and was very Noire-ish
