I swear I only realized while drawing this strip that Doug’s clothes are different whenever he undergoes a Gym challenge. The Pewter Gym saw the classic “Tauros Bait” look, Misty fought the black “you look weird” Doug, Surge’s challenge had the current (hopefully final) version and now Doug gets temporarily ninja-fied before fighting Koga. I did not have that pattern in mind when I Raskal’d him, a complete coincidence. Now I’m tempted to do something like this before the next Gym too, though I probably won’t… get to the next Gym before dying of old age, that is.

See you March 14th when we face Koga’s most horrible weaPUN.
