Something like a Pokémon webcomic.note Clockwise from top-left: Black, N, MissingNo., Joy
Black Adventures is a Pokémon fan webcomic, mainly based on Pokémon Black and White, written and drawn by one Black. It follows the story of Black and his friends Cheren, Bel, and White. Also N.The comic began life as a sort of "choose your own adventure" game on /vp/, 4chan's dedicated Pokémon board. Black would write the comic based on suggestions from posts with dubs (in short, posts whose numbers ended with two consecutive numbers), which helps to explain the rather nonsensical beginning of the series, which includes Black getting, of all things, MissingNo. as a starter Pokémon of sorts, and traveling back in time to save Hitler from the Allies. After two chapters of this confusion, the series begins to develop its own (and marginally more logical) plot as Black finally starts his journey to become Champion of the "New York" Pokémon League.The comic can be read here.
Although there is a noticeable improvement over time with proportions, backgrounds and shading. To quote a commenter and apparently good friend of Black's, ShihFu, "Oh, lawd. Look at Arti’s arm in the 3rd and 4th pattern. YOUR ANATOMY IS IMPROVING."
Cut-and-Paste Translation: The comic uses both Japanese and English-localized terms liberally, in part because the comic began before any details on Black and White's localization were released. For example, the Castelia Gym Leader's Japanese name is Arti while his English name is Burgh; his Black Adventures name is Arti Burgh.
Deconstruction: In the games, the loser of a Pokémon battle must give money to the winner. The Trial Triangle's restaurant is nearly bankrupt because of this.
The abuses Pokémon such as Nilbert suffered by trainers are not just the typical pokemon battles but also the forced breeding of what are basically children as well as the neglect of being left in the PC.
Deus ex Machina: One of the main reasons the author decided to keep MissingNo. around.
Dirty OldMon: Thundurus is disappointed when Black and N's latest transformation doesn't include miniskirts and PantyShots.
Dissonant Serenity: Apple the Victini, who can talk about his broken legs with apathetic manner and with a same face he made when he introduced himself.
Disproportionate Retribution: Thundurus acts like a perv and wreaks havoc throughout Nimbasa. Black's Superpowered Evil Side beats Thundurus to a pulp.
Dramatic Irony: In episode 19, Bel tells N that her father is overprotective because he loves her. N assumes the same about his own father. Of course, if you've played the games...
Dub Name Change: Zig-zagged. Some characters are called by their Japanese names (examples we can se here include Biancanote Bel, Chilinote Pod and Burghnote Arti) while others are called by their English names. Some use both names with one as a given name and the other as a surname.
Dude Looks Like a Lady: Several times in the story, Black is mistaken for a girl. The outfits that he wears after transformation don't really help this problem.
Black: You guys do realize that I'm a dude, right?
Ingo: Not by Deutsch standards.
Dynamic Entry: In episode 04, Black's mother calls Black's Xtransceiver, kicks him in the face, and gives him his running shoes.
Then in Episode 13, not only do Ingo and Emmet crash through the subway windows in introduce themselves, their Pokémon just drop in through the ceiling.
Eye Scream: MissingNo. bitchslaps Mary straight in the eye which ends being hideously bloodshot.
Later, in Episode 28, Kcalb rips the same eye out.
Faceless Masses: In one strip, an NPC Joy is tending to doesn't have a face. Just the letters NPC where it should be
Episode 15. ALL OF IT has made reviewers go HHHHHNNNNNNNGGGGGG.
Flanderization: The story originally focused more on the Pokemon, Team Plasma's plans and occasional crossdressing and gay jokes. Now the fic is almost all crossdressing and gay jokes, with almost all characters toned down to accommodate said jokes.
Black was originally the Only Sane Man who was forced to put up with N, while trying to become a great Trainer and deciding what to do with his life. Cut to now, where his crush on White, bad luck, awkward situations and crossdressing are pretty much what make up his character.
Gender Bender: Turning into Sailor Scouts turns Black and Joy into girls.
Generation Xerox: White looks exactly like Black's mom, and for good reason. It makes Black's crush on White border on Oedipus Complex since the resemblance is very clear and his mom even calls him out for being blind to the evidence pointing to the two of them being siblings.
Genre Savvy: By the time Black gets to Nimbasa Gym in episode 14 he's used to the cross-dressing and fighting random Pokémon. He even hopes the costumes aren't as revealing as the last few times.
Hitler's Time Travel Exemption Act: Inverted, subverted, and whatever else. Not only do the go back to save Hitler, they succeed and bring him back to the modern era. We've yet to see any ramifications of this.
Jerkass: Joseph, Mary and Jesus. Black and N both have their moments too. Cheren too, Black even calls him a dick. Not to mention MissingNo., responsible for every (comical) death in the comic so far. But we love them all. Probably, everyone exceptJoy has had their moment (Even Bel!).
Lampshade Hanging: The beginning of the comic made absolutely no sense, mainly because the author had to blindly follow whatever /vp/ threw at her. And Black does these nonsensical things with confused or exasperated looks on his face.
Landorus has a very feminine form in the Dream World, most likely referencing the fact that the roleplayer who plays as Landorus hates being called male.
Pseudo Crisis: The second-to-last installement of Episode 15 ended on Black getting gruesomely stabbed with gorgeous blood splash and all and readers freaking out over the cliffhanger and going crazy with theories. Next installement, nothing at all happened on Black's side except Joy healing him with Heal Pulse.
Psychoactive Powers: The transformation sequences and outfits get noticeably less flashy when N is depressed.
Shoot the Medic First: Kyurem does this to Joy in episode 23, but this has less to do with ridding Black and N of their healer and more to do with Kyurem trying to prove a point to N that Pokémon do harm other Pokémon and that humans are capable of kindness towards them.
Surprise Incest: Black and White are actually separated twins, as their mom later reveals.
Take That: In the third bonus comic. "I'M GONNA SAVE BLACK FROM YOU, BUT FIRST WE READ HOMOSUCK."
Subverted. Author!Black has stated that she "has never watched/read/whatever Homestuck".
A very loaded one at the community in general regarding their battling techniques: White's curbstomp battle against Cheren plays out like a typical battle sequence by any players of the game by never letting Cheren even have a token chance at defeating her pokemon. Cheren's breakdown is a fairly accurate reaction of many players' first loss against Competitive Battlers, making it a Take That against that community as well.
Talking Animal: All Pokémon so far seem to be able to speak English fine.
Team Rocket: Team Plasma, naturally. They're still being treated as somewhat threatening.
Teasing Creator: Black-the-artist is very aware of what the fans want; episode 14 was especially aimed to make the NewYorkshippers cry. And then came episode 15.
