Non-Regulation Poké Balls (3 of 6)

Non-Regulation Poké Balls (3 of 6)

Non-Regulation Poké Balls (3 of 6)

by Steve Napierski to Comics

Three months ago I created a comic called Non-Regulation Poké Balls where I created my take on eight non-regulation Poké Balls. One month later, I created another comic called Non-Regulation Poké Balls where I took eight of my favorite suggestions supplied by readers and turned them into non-regulation Poké Balls. At the end of that comic I asked the readers for any additional suggestions of non-regulation Poké Balls. These are eight of my favorite suggestions from the second time around.

If there’s any more that you think should be added, suggest them in the comment section below.

      Space? Space?!

      SPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACE!

      Anyways, I like the idea of the spaceball.

      Also, its not a “Weighted Storage Ball”, it’s called an “Edgeless Safety Cube”, so technically it isn’t a ball at all. http://half-life.wikia.com/wiki/Edgeless_Safety_Cube

    Once again, I’ll suggest the awesome Pac-Man Ball (100% Failure Rate on Ghost Type Pokemon) and the Firefox Ball (as you’ve done the Chrome Ball before).

      The Pac-Man Ball works really well if I can add the failure rate tagline, but unfortunately I can’t for consistency reasons.

        Couldn’t you just add the tag line in the comic blog? I think most of your readers would be intelligent enough to appreciate it, even if it’s not IN the comic itself.

    I still like “Chef’s Chocolate Salty Ball” from south park as well as “the Schwetty ball” from SNL. Many testicular references today. Not sure why…
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yVChao15oDw

    Also, the Phantasm Ball, which someone else had mentioned previously.

    Finally, another good one would be the Dirigiball that could be plummeting and on fire.

    I think a lot of people are missing the point. These aren’t just random objects with the word “ball” stuck on the end. These are supposed to be puns with words that already include the ball, and just converting whatever the actual meaning is to a Pokeball shape.
