that happens we'd all be long dead and forgotten, so we'll make do with what we have.

Yes, as the old saw goes, "If it exists, there is porn of it." Rule 34 existed before the actual term was coined in the internet age, what with the underground comics of the 1960's and even long before, with pornographic comics such as Fritz the Cat and pornographic versions of copyrighted characters such as Mickey Mouse. (And even in the original Mickey Mouse cartoon there was naughty humor such as Mickey Mouse picking up Minnie Mouse by her panties with the steamboat's crane.) And when you see male and female cartoon characters in more modern times, it is inevitable that some people who have seen them growing up would think of them in sexual terms when they hit puberty. This might be odd for cartoon characters whose genders are only suggested by components such as long eyelashes for females or token gender-specific items of clothing such as neckties or bows, but some cartoon characters do have their sexual aspects played up, such as Krystal Fox with her voluptuous body and skimpy standard outfit.
But the Pokémon scenario is rather different. Having seen the original cartoon, I noted that there were no references to male and female Pokémon, and even real life house pets are male and female and typically act differently as a result. In fact, the role of the Pokémon creatures in the story was to use them for what are essentially cockfights, with one person using their Pokémon to fight and defeat another person's Pokémon. (I since learned from Webkilla that some gender-specific Pokémon do exist after all, namely Mr. Mime who is specifically male, and Kangaskhan who is basically an armored anime-style kangaroo often shown with young in its belly-pouch, and thus seems to be often implied female.)
Where can a webcomic like this fall from?
Story and Plot
The protagonist of the story is a Gure named Silver, a female "Silver/gray Haired Human/ Serval hybrid labratory experiment. Age 19."
Volume One(FurAffinity page): Page One is described by the author as follows: 'It begins... Currently, little Gure has just escaped her confinements. Merged with a Nanobot Hive (wich explains why her (stolen) lab coat is covered in blood and bullet holes) and ran off when the security guards figured they had her killed..."
Page Two: "Having just moments ago escaped her confinements... She accidentally ran through a sudden pop-up-portal... how it got there...and why it dissapeared so quickly again...? That was certainly a mistery!"
Page Three: "Now slowly she starts to explore the new world she finds herself in... Able to smell water nearby luckely she could at least drink something...and try to clean herself a bit?" (This author sucks even worse at spelling than Andrew Fraser!)
To make a long story short, what happens at the outset is that protagonist Gure/Silver has escaped from a laboratory through a portal, only to be found by a Flygon Pokémon who savagely rapes her in the mouth and vagina (shown in very graphic detail) before he flies away. Right afterward a Luxray comes to not only also rape Silver, but electrocute her and activate the nanobots inside her. And after that, a Lugia comes and chases it away...and has his go at Silver. But this time she transforms and the Lugia takes her with him.
Volume Two(official website): Now we see a woman named Penelope, a trainer for her own Pokémon, who runs into Silver, intending to have her Pokémon fight Lugia, but the annoyed Silver uses her newfound hydro-pump power to flush Penelope away. Then Penelope's Pokémon decides to rape Silver himself, to the displeasure of the returning Penelope, who happens to be her Pokémon's sex partner as well. Silver flies away using her newfound wings and lands on an island...and is raped by yet another Pokémon. Fleeing him, Silver runs into a pair of humans, male and female, who are humping their Pokémon. No matter; Silver befriends them and soon after, they are all found by Team Rocket. Silver's newfound friends battle Team Rocket and defeat them, and Silver has to flee yet again. Unfortunately, she meets Ho-oh, a particularly powerful Pokémon with the intention of destroying her. Fortunately Lugia finally appears and he and Silver defeat Ho-oh and then go home, where they finally have consensual sex and three eggs for offspring.
Volume Three(official website): The eggs are hatched and the offspring are born and already growing up fast. Unfortunately, while the parents are out picking berries, their kids are kidnapped! Lugia has Silver go to meet a professor in the area who had helped him when he was a youth, and when she arrives, Silver is told by the professor that she is destined to become a Pokémon trainer herself, and she also finds Meagan and Sergen, the humans she had befriended in the previous volume there as well. Lugia arrives and attacks Meagan and Sergen before Silver explains that she had befriended them, and once everyone is reconciled, Lugia, Silver, and the twins go on a quest after the kidnapped children. But when they camp for the night, Meagan decides to have a lesbian session in her tent with Silver, despite the latter's objection. (You thought that was forgotten?) Also, Lugia ends up being confined in a Pokeball, and Sergen explains how Pokémon are kept in them in comfort and for their protection. They break camp, Lugia still in the Pokeball, and travel to a waterfall where Silver discovers bad Pokémon bullying other Pokémon. She chases away the bullies and some of the bullied Pokémon want to go with her. Our heroes then travel to a Pokémon Center, and it turns out that in the vicinity is a pirate base where kidnapped Pokémon were kept, including Silver's children. Silver retrieves her children and releases Lugia, and they travel away with the twins, but a new problem occurs when Lugia's half-brother Yveltal arrives to kidnap Silver and impregnate her himself, and the others cannot come to her rescue because they are too preoccupied with taking the children to safety. Yveltal not only rapes Silver but transforms her again, but Silver gets the last laugh by trapping him in her Pokeball.
There are a total of thirteen volumes of this series so far, but what I have already mentioned should give the gist of the story. Whatever else happens, we can assume Silver will be raped again and again in the other volumes, based on what has happened already.
Technically, the artwork is good, and is competent in anatomy, proportions, and color choices, with the proper overall look of the old Pokémon cartoon from years ago. The Pokémon figures are all rendered correctly.
On the official webcomic page, the copyrighted Nintendo characters are blacked out with the message "CENSOR MADE MANDATORY BY NINTENDO. OUR APOLOGIES.":
However, on the author's FurAffinity page, the pictures depict the actual Nintendo characters with nothing covered up:
One would think that Nintendo would not be content with the blacking out of their characters in the main comic, considering that the actual characters are shown in the FurAffinity version. Why not have the whole shebang wiped out? I don't know copyright law, but I would have thought that Nintendo could certainly prevail upon FurAffinity's administration to have them erase Shiro-Neko's comics from their website, as FurAffinity's administration have already proven to be very skittish about the wrong politics being exhibited, and even more so about any hint of mixing children and pornography, as described in our review of Tina's Story. After all, this is not mere pornography using Pokémon characters; the Pokémon characters are actually raping people! One would think Nintendo would have come down upon FurAffinity like a ton of bricks!
The plot is as follows:
- Silver has sex with Pokémon, usually nonconsensual, and these incidents don't even traumatize her.
- Human Pokémon trainers have sex with their nonhuman Pokémon.
- Not too much else.
The author has more similar material in his website besides this particular series. We can assume he is as much into this material as his audience, so whoever this person is, I prefer to know nothing else about him.
A Pokémon sex fantasy is bad enough, but this is a Pokémon rape fantasy, where our heroine is repeatedly brutally raped by various Pokémon creatures and is seemingly not even traumatized by these events, even though any real person would be. This is a Pokémon bestiality fantasy, where human trainers have sex with their nonhuman Pokémon pets. What more can be said about this material, other than that the fanbase for it (and there is one) are people who must be sick in their heads?
