Non-Regulation Poké Balls (4 of 6)

Non-Regulation Poké Balls (4 of 6)

Non-Regulation Poké Balls (4 of 6)

by Steve Napierski to Comics

Almost six 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. Two months later, I did it again. Today’s is pretty much split down the center with half the suggestions coming from you, the readers, and half coming from me.

If there’s any more that you think should be added, suggest them in the comment section below. I’m curious as to just how long this theme can continue. I really enjoy making these and the interaction with you guys is awesome, as well. So keep your suggestions coming!

    You should do a gnome ball after your character.

      What about a peeka-ball? (as in peeka-boo?) or a Pika ball, after pikachu? Iron Ball (Iron or Iron Man themed, your take.), Baby ball, nickel ball, shot ball…dunno about that one…maybe. I have more suggestions, too. Maybe I’ll save those for the next time around.

    When you look at all the balls in order and finally reach the “Noball” you see an outline of a ball in the white. Cool illusion!

    Have you tried making a Meat Ball? You could either make it look like Meatwad from Aqua Teen Hunger Force, or Super Meat Boy.

    Awesome! Two of my suggestions made it! (Well, I was thinking more along the lines of Mel Brooks when I submitted Space Ball, but that would’ve been kind of hard to make an actual ball, probably.) That means I indirectly produced one-fourth of this comic strip!

    Glad you liked them.

    As for more ideas…er…

    Brony Ball?
    Bomb Ball?
    SlowPoke Ball?
    Reckin’ Ball? From Iggy’s Reckin’ Balls? That one N64 game?

    Meh, I already contributed my fair share.

    So, does the No-Ball keep one hidden from prescience? Seems handy against Future Sight, though I have to wonder how they managed to get the no-field generator in such a small package. Then again, if you use a T-Probe it’s just an expensive Pokeball.

    I looked through some of the comments so if I have some that other people have said, then oh well. Here are some of my ideas…

    Bomb Ball (I was thinking of Bobomb)

    Baseketball (From the Movie)

    Kirball (Kirby)

    Girball (a gerbil inside a clear ball)

    Deathball (Death Star)

    Beastball (Really furry/hairy ball)

    Furryball (ball with catgirl face, ears, and a tail)

    Triangle Ball (or other shape that sounds better) (put a subtext/sidenote saying ‘how would this even work?’ or ‘ who would even throw this?’ or ‘ What the hell?!’)

    Dragonball (not sure if you used that one or not, probably too obvious)

    and

    Analog ball (for Dueling analogs)

    With the number of Non Regulation Poke Balls you got going here, I’d say you are getting dangerously close to that point where I start wanting a poster of it… ah crap, too late.

    If you print it, they will come…

    Or I will at least. This is way better than Kevin Cosner playing baseball with dead guys at any rate.

    Ooh, what about a Mockball? I don’t know quite how you’d represent that (since you’ve already done a Morph Ball, and the Mock Ball is just the Morph Ball while in the middle of a Shinespar) but it’s something to go off of.

    Steve, no My Little Pony strip yet? Do we have to wait for a multi-platform, non-Flash release before you’ll indulge the bronies?

    But we’ll forgive you. Just give us a non-regulation Pokeball for each of the six lead ponies, plus either Spike/Celestia/Luna/Derpy Hooves for the remaining 2 slots.

      I think a Spyball would work better, actually, if it looked like one of the other TF2 classes (such as a Medic). Or it could look like one of the other balls on the page.

    Most of the Mario characters could be warped into ball form. Mario had that one pinball game..
    And: Boo Ball appeared in Luigi’s Mansion (the Boo Radar would go off near ball shaped objects, and sometimes the Boo Ball pops out instead of an actual Boo)

    The slow ball, spy ball, and boo ball all sound good. My suggestion eould be a highball (either a clear nall with rye and coke inside or a tie-dye ball with a pot leaf for a button) and a moon ball (either shaped like the.moon or a pair of asscheeks)
