Ask-TwitchPKMN by Pioxys

  • Recommended by: SpiriTsunami
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: A semi-interactive (think MS Paint Adventures before it started getting complicated) webcomic in which anons ask questions of iconic Twitch Plays Pokémon Pokémon, which are answered in comic form. Season 2 is a bit more story-driven, with the ask box occasionally closing completely. Due to its length, it's a primary source of characterization for a lot of Season 1 Pokémon.
  • Medium: Comic
  • Additional recommender's notes: As someone who didn't join the mob until very late in Season 1, it was a bit disorienting Archive Binging this from the start and seeing Solareon and the False Prophet treated as one and the same when it's now common knowledge that they don't even share a gender. Pioxys gets mad props for how he handled this discrepancy without having to declare earlier comics non-canon.
