Brawl in the Family pulls off a BRILLIANT Pokemon joke

Brawl in the Family by Matthew Taranto is one of my absolute favorite webcomics. For those unfamiliar, it’s a Nintendo-themed comic with a primary focus on the cast of the Kirby series. The jokes don’t tend to be laugh-out-loud hilarious, but the art is adorable in its simplicity and each new entry always leaves a smile on my face.

The most recent strip is so masterful in its execution that I just had to share it with all of you. As you can see from the set-up above, a trio of children are going trick-or-treating dressed as their favorite Pokémon — one of them is the infamous glitch Pokémon MissingNo. The punchline is extremely subtle, but fans of Generation 1 should instantly get the joke. It’s quite amazing!
