I'm not familiar with what the controversy this comic was making fun of was. I think it had something to do with some fan-art of a modified Pikachu spreading around tumblr causing people to think Nintendo was making a new evolution or something...
The original joke called for "bad" pokemon from the original 151. However, I convinced brent and Dan to use pokemon from later games as well since I was the only one who's played beyond Red and Blue and knew that the original 151 only hit the tip of the iceberg of crappy pokemon (Vanilluxe anyone?).
