This comic idea had a round-about way of coming into existance. The revelation of new 5th generation Pokemon ‘Zoroark’ got me thinking of ‘Noah’s Ark’. That got the wheels turning on an idea where Noah had finished packing the animals into the ark when God reveals that he created another generation of animals Noah would have to cram in there. I really liked this, but then I realized that the idea that Noah was in essence the first Pokemon Trainer was really the core joke and could be done in one panel, something I knew Ray would appreciate. I think it turned out very nice and keeps our reputation of bringing new styles to the table alive and well!
