What I dont understand:
When you breed a female and a male Marowak, the Cubone you breed has the skull
WHEN THE MOTHING IS STILL FUDGING ALIVE

Marowak doesn't wear a skull, that is its actual face. The reason why Cubone wears its mother's skull, is not just out of mourning for its dead mother. Its head is still soft so it needs a helmet until evolution.

What that Slowking doesn't know is that Cubone's mother was Khangkaskahn

I love how Marowak is so matter-of-fact.

P.S. Has anyone else noticed that Marowak's skull looks like Abra's head? :hmm:

I've always been sorta wondering... If that's a female, does that mean it's kid is technically gonna have the grandma's skull? And in theory, if it keeps getting female babies that skull is gonna be HELLA old XD (I think to hard about Pokemon stuff sometimes, me thinks owo)

Anyway, great comic! Love this whole series :'D

That Marowak reminds me of... me. Awful at parties, can't small talk, often freaks people out with excessive honesty and can't tell when I have.

Isn't it possible that Cubone just uses the same skull their mother uses? I mean, unless EVERY Marowak EVER dies after giving birth, you'd think good O'l Professor Oak and the rest would try and find a way to stop it from happening.

Actually, cubone was originally supposed to be a baby Kangaskhan that had lost its mother and made her skull into a helmet. The game designers ended up ditching the idea but they had already had it programmed into the game but they just deleted the code and that is where missingo comes from.

Yes. That is true. Then in the later games breeding messed up EVERYTHING!  And then m is the baby cubone.

HAVE YOU EVER LOOKED AT THE LITTLE BABY IN KANGASKHAN'S POUCH? AND IF YOU ADD WHAT WOULD BE THE SKULL OF A KANGASKHAN ONTO IT'S BODY, IT WOULD BE AWFULLY REMINISCENT OF CUBONE, WOULDN'T IT? WHICH IS WHY I PROPOSE THAT MAROWAK IS SIMPLY THE MALE VERSION OF KANGASKHAN. THERE. DID I JUST BLOW YOUR MIND?

Techneclly a marowaks skull (the visible one) is the one a cubone wears for grief of its dead mother. The skull changes after evolution.

"It wasn't easy, I tell you. Her head, the same that cooed me to sleep when I was young, was still affixed to her spinal cord - I snapped her neck, and a few turns later, it was off. While cleaning out the recesses of her skull, I realized I had not eaten that day. Wait... where are you going?"

...ahem.

I always assumed the whole "every Marowak dies giving birth" thing was an urban legend. Makes the whole thing less disturbing.
