Crossroads Comics #6: The Hall of Fame

It’s Monday which means it’s time for Crossroads Comics!

Trainer Wants to Fight is a comic that’s been around since 2013. Filled with humor and hilarious commentary on the inconsistencies, wackiness, and just all around fun details within the Pokémon Universe of the games Pokémon Blue and Pokémon Crystal.

I started reading Trainer Wants to Fight back around the time it started and fell in love with it instantly. The art style is adorable, the comics all have great punchlines, and it really built on the nostalgia of every Pokémon game I had ever played. Sadly, however, all good things must come to an end. And while back in 2014 I feared that the comic would officially end, this was not the case, as the comic was revived for a second book in 2016. But alas, this book has finally reached its end, and while Book 3 may always be a possibility, it does not appear to be coming any time soon. Still, that shouldn’t stop you from enjoying the wonder that is Trainer Wants to Fight. And once you finish binging it all, you can read the TVTropes page on the webcomic and follow the artist on Deviantart, Tumblr,, or check out her Amazon and food blog if you would like. She’s a great artist with a great sense of humor, so I promise you won’t be making a mistake following her.
