''Webcomic/RareCandyTreatment'' is a ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' webcomic by Bumbazzle / Bummerdude. It's named after an item in said games, the ''rare candy'', and playing with the idea of it being an addictive drug. (therefore requiring treatment)

Most likely what differentiates this ''Pokémon'' webcomic from others are three things: its serious drawing style, BlackHumor, and great focus on the trainers (instead of the traditional focus on the creatures). This actually gives the comic series a certain MoodDissonance with the usual ''Pokémon'' friendly and nice atmosphere, which all things considered ends up being quite enjoyable.

As of 20 June 2014, the webcomic has ended, due to author having done everything he wanted to do with it.

!This comic contains the following tropes
* AgonyOfTheFeet: It turns out a Ponyta's hooves aren't harder than diamond.
* AMindIsATerribleThingToRead: [[http://www.rarecandytreatment.com/comics/1358419/mindblowing/ Nasty Plot, apparently.]]
* BlackComedy: Makes up a good portion of the comic.
* BloodKnight: [[http://www.rarecandytreatment.com/comics/1381224/i-like-shorts/ Every Pokemon trainer.]]
* {{Crossover}}:
** The ''[=DexBusters=]'' combine ''Series/MythBusters'' with the [[{{Pokemon}} Pokedex]].
** The ghost pokémon are caught by the Film/{{Ghostbusters}}.
** The [[Manga/DragonBall Dragon Gem]].
** Ruins of [[http://www.rarecandytreatment.com/comics/961967/ruins-of-alph/ Alf]].
* {{Cult}}: One comic features one that worships Missingno.
* {{Deconstruction}}: A lot of dark or silly things in ''Pokémon'' are analyzed. For instance, one Hypno with "Insomnia" will be doomed to sleep-less life.
** Similarly, breeding Pokemon until the one with [[MinMaxing just the right nature]] leads to [[http://www.rarecandytreatment.com/comics/950442/the-breeders-dilemma/ massive ecological upheaval.]]
** Even darker, the Elemental Stones are said to give off a strange sort of radiation that causes certain Pokemon to evolve. What else does radiation cause? [[http://www.rarecandytreatment.com/comics/1499808/overgrow/ Cancer.]]
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: Magnemite learns Magnet Rise!
* EpicFail: [[http://www.rarecandytreatment.com/comics/1332977/sleep-tackle/ This.]]
* ForScience: the Dexbusters.

* PowerIncontinence: Abomasnow's hailstorm.
* RapidFireFisticuffs: Machamp can throw a thousand punches in half a minute. Too bad the Pokedex says it should be able to do it in ''two seconds''.
* RealityEnsues: [[http://www.rarecandytreatment.com/comics/1468394/fear-of-change/ Bumbazzle's take on how awful the game would be if it were more realistic]]

* TheSleepless: Hypno.
* WeaksauceWeakness: Alakazam can beat a computer at chess and solve a RubiksCube in seconds. Ask it to learn a fifth move, however...
* WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove: a December 2012 strip features a Cryogonal with this motivation to find out what it is due to being a gender-neutral Pokemon who can be taught Attract. Sadly, he never learns what it is.
