Untold Origins

TimI absolutely love the way this comic turned out. Sometimes I’ll have an idea of what the comic should look like in my head and Ray will get it just right. This is one of those times where he far exceeded what I had imagined. I think the extra week off for Ray was well worth it! Also, the idea for this comic actually came to me while Ray was out here visiting (in California). I’m not sure what brought the idea on, I just remember that I was doing dishes when I proposed the idea to Ray. The idea was originally just “What if Goombas and Koopa Troopas were actually Pokemon?”, and I later fleshed it out into an real story. Enjoy!

RayWith last week off, I knew people would expect a great looking comic when I returned. So I knew this had to be good. Thankfully, I think it turned out to be just that. I had a lot of fun putting this strip together, and thanks to Tim’s excellent idea, it really gave me the drive to make it look great. Hope you guys enjoyed it!

    Great comic! One of your best yet. And really well drawn too. It was definitely worth the week off!

  2. Le says:

    HAHAHA! One of the best yet!

    I love your comics. The only downer, was when you had the guest comic.

  3. Stripey says:

    Hm… When you really think about it…

    This comic’s correct…

    But, considering the fact that Mario came before Pokémon, wouldn’t that technically mean that Goombas and Koopas are actually the fathers of nearly every Pokémon?

    Now that’s something to chew on!

    PS. “Support our Troopas” Nice XD

  4. Tristan says:

    ookkkkaayyy……. that was kinda weird…..
    no, wait. that was really weird.
    where do these ideas COME from?!?!

    Another oddity… if that’s true… then how are their PARENTS pokemon? and also, theres turtwig in there. thats a fourth generation pokemon (from diamond and pearl). so thats where things get really wonky.

  6. Tim says:

    yeah…I wasn’t going to take the genealogy of Pokemon that deep, but the creation of Mario Bros. and Pokemon doesn’t necessarily indicate which came first, right? The Star Wars trilogies show that to be true. So, let’s assume the world of Pokemon already exists when the world of Mario comes about, then Goomba and Koopa could really be 5th generation Pokemon, right?

      Well, actually since Super Mario Bros and Pokèmon do not even seem to take place in the same fictional realm\universe at times (or at least on different planets, i say this because the Mario games and Pokémon games do not seem to share creatures, but neither do Kanto with Unova, so Mushi-chiho might just be a more steampunk region, which happens to not have gyms\E4 in it, instead the Pokèmon speak the same language as the humans. Mario and Luigi might just be Italian-Unovans who decided to live in the Mushroom Kingdom because they thought Goomba\Koopa\ecc… looked much better\nicer than the Gen V Pokémon. Donkey Kong and Wario spinoffs may joss this, but…)

  7. Copes says:

    Oh my god its true. I would never have suspected it.

  8. Noodle_93 says:

    Hahahahahahahaha. Funny and true

  9. Davey the Harding says:

    One detail no one pointed out was the human anatomy poster on the wall. I love the Dr. Mario bottle reference.

  10. KC says:

    I dont normally comment but I really enjoyed this :)

    neat idea! ill accept that! only one problem now. we’ve gotta bombard nintendo to make goombas and koopas acutal 5th gen pokemon. it actully possible some crazy people are doing just that, even as i type this 0_o but again, since i play both mario games and pokemon games (i have pearl… and im a boy, dont laugh), this just had me in stitches. im going to send this to my freind, who also plays those games (he has diamond). great job on it, keep it up! (maybe make it into a seires somehow?)

    remineds me of a comic i saw somewhere (i forgot where but i dont think it was 2p start, maybe vgcats or something?), where there were all these doctor mario pills going down, and they reaced the top. then you see luiigi, foaming at the mouth. and a toad is like, “he only had a headache! why did you keep shoving pills down his mouth?” and the response from ‘doctor mario’ is “hey, being a doctor is hard work!” funny. ill submit a link if i can…. no!!!!! must not sumbit links to other webcomics! how could i even think it…………..

  13. Tristan says:

    another strange thing i noticed.
    and that strang thing is that i am commenting way too much. so i should shut up for now.

    ok, so i found it, and yes it’s vgcats. im putting the link here, JUST TO THE IMAGE, NOT THE ACTUAL WEBCOMIC! ok, now that you know that, you can decide whether or not you want to look at it. im not forcing you to and you dont have to, but i think you should look at it. just because its funny. http://www.vgcats.com/comics/images/070908.jpg

  15. Tim says:

    Tristan, don’t worry about other webcomic links, it’s pretty unlikely that we’re going to lose 2P START! fans to VG Cats, seeing as VG Cats already rules the world. I had seen that comic and now I start to wonder if that reference was a subconscious tribute to the VG Cats comic…hmm…yeah, probably was!

  16. Andrew says:

    Shoulda been a diglett instead of a parasect. But seriously, that comic was really ingenious

  17. Sam says:

    Wonderful! I definitely loved the “support our troopas” poster. And the idea of Pokeman parents. Great comic, guys!

  18. Greg Webster says:

    FANTASTIC! Kinda makes me want to pick up my copy of Pearl again.

  19. Tim says:

    I need a Support our Troopas t-shirt, now.

  20. Puffs says:

    Funny thing is… Both of those pairs are compatible for breeding.

  21. Tristan says:

    i noticed another screw-up. if those were their parents, they would be the same pokemon as their mother was, you know? so why would they look so different?

  22. Tim says:

    Pokemon Breeding rules/changes for Generation V Pokemon have not yet been revealed. But it’s possible that those combinations would result in Koopa and Goomba. See here.

  23. Tristan says:

    this is unrelated, but what do you guys think of my new mario icon?

  24. LunarAura says:

    this is unrelated, but what do you guys think of my new mario icon?

    Looks just like Mario. That’s tight!

  25. Ray says:

    this is unrelated, but what do you guys think of my new mario icon?

    As if I needed another reminder of Smash Bros. Brawl…….

  26. HiZaM says:

    kept me laughing for a while should i go to play pokemon again i lost interest after stadium. i should get back to check this webcomic every now and then stumbled across it.

  27. Yoshi says:

    Holy Crap

    best one yet!

  28. Tristan says:

    whoops. sorry about that! heh! btw, i think galaxy comes out around about… tomorrow i think? =D i cant wait!

  29. Tristan says:

    woah. the quoting on that last thing failed! everytihing up the the dots should havbe been in quotes. ah well my computer hates me today. even i have to wait for the text to appear even as i type this!

  30. Matt says:

    woah. the quoting on that last thing failed! everytihing up the the dots should havbe been in quotes. ah well my computer hates me today. even i have to wait for the text to appear even as i type this!

    Wow dude, you made 1/3 of the posts here >_

  31. Ryuji says:

    Just needs a looming shadow of Ash with an evil grin on his face and a poke-ball in hand ^_^

  32. JQ says:

    Another awesome comic! This is your best yet!

  33. Tristan says:

    yeah i know i made 1/3 of the posts here

    another strange thing i noticed.
    and that strang thing is that i am commenting way too much. so i should shut up for now.

    see?

  34. Tristan says:

    Just needs a looming shadow of Ash with an evil grin on his face and a poke-ball in hand ^_^

    heh yea, i LIKE that idea! btw, now i think i may have more like 1/2 of the posts here

  35. nick says:

    Seriously, you need to make that Support our Troopas into a sticker or something. I’d definite put that patch on my backpack, and I’m currently in Iraq. Hey, I just realized I could get them to make one!

  36. Cozm0 says:

    I love the diagram in the backround with the doctor mario jar. lol

  37. Tristan says:

    btw, what i am about to say has almost no relevance to the comic here (though it is mario related, and i will make some people happy to learn). SUPER MARIO GALAXY IS COMING OUT TODAY!!!!!

  38. fenderflip says:

    lol!! I wanna be a pokemon!

  39. Basil Evenstar says:

    I’m glad I’m not the ONLY one who noticed that both of those pairs of Pokemon can breed….

  40. Eli says:

    Excellent celui là, j’adore XD

  41. Gadoink says:

    allow me to once again add the the comments of this one. I think this was the first one i ever commented on….

  42. Guest says:

    This comic would have been far better without the text in the last panel.

  43. Gadoink says:

    My god, I swear, when I go back and look at all those comments I made when I was like 12 (14 now), part of me dies inside…

    On a side note, I have done some math, and I believe that I have been reading 2P Start! for about 1 year, 3 months. That’s a long time! So, Tim, Ray, do I get a cookie or something? =D

  44. Leif Coleman says:

    Now Goomba and Koopa will be appearing in the next Pokemon game! YES! =D

  45. chriskatching says:

    haha Pokemon :D

  46. Gadoink says:

    ookkkkaayyy……. that was kinda weird…..
    no, wait. that was really weird.
    where do these ideas COME from?!?!

    (goes back in time)
    Past Tristan: Hey, who are you…
    Present Tristan: ENOUGH!
    Past Tristan: (is shot in the head)

    That is what I think of my old comments.

  47. ANS1 says:

    There are no smilies good enough to describe the WIN in this comic.

    Keep up the good work.

  48. CKcheeseboy says:

    Wow, I was going through old comics and I just noticed that the last speech bubble is two different colors since both of them are saying it…nice touch!

  49. omar franco says:

    its a masterpiece, congratulations

  50. Mirby says:

    Well, it’s all Nintendo, so don’t be surprised.

    YOUR GOOMBA IS EVOLVING! CONGRATULATIONS! YOUR GOOMBA EVOLVED INTO KURIBO!
    YOUR KURIBO IS EVOLVING! CONGRATULATIONS! YOUR KURIBO EVOLVED INTO PARAKURIBO!

    YOUR KOOPA IS EVOLVING! CONGRATULATIONS! YOUR KOOPA EVOLVED INTO PARAKOOPA!
    YOUR PARAKOOPA IS EVOLVING! CONGRATULATIONS! YOUR PARAKOOPA EVOLVED INTO LAKITU!

    And yes, I know that Kuribo is just what Goombas are called in Japan.

  51. MarioPokemon says:

    A great joke to run with… Here’s a follow-up…

  52. poopbutt says:

    I once omegle’d a guy from japan. He said they didn’t have much weed but a bunch of acid and shrooms there. Our inventions are toilet paper arm extenders. They invent awesome.
