It IS a good idea. There are other stirps who have pictured it as brainwashing or as a warm, cozy saloon inside (can link those later), but there's plenty of room left for other approaches if we just play our cards right.
Yeah, only reason I know of Shell Break is because of Serebii.net, and their Pokemon of the Week articles. They did Cloyster recently, who, because of Shell Break, now has the ability to OHKO most walls. Shell Break sharply raises your Atk, SpA, and Spe, and sharply lowers your Def and SpD. So yeah.
I actually haven't played through Black and White, so nothing to fear. +)
Man, been a while since I updated this thread. But I guess that happens when I only update once a week!
Every single pokedex entry about Drowzee mentions its diet or habit of eating dreams, and not once, through the entire series, has it ever been able to learn Dream Eater on its own. Never. It is one of the weirdest pokemon facts I know of, and it bugs me to no end.
I'll be fixing a few details when I get home before I'll upload it to the internet for real, but suggestions are welcome within this time window.
Fat Drowzee is great. That little innocence he has is as much a punchline as the actual strip haha (not saying original punchline is bad or anything). Much like the Regice's arms in the previous strip you always got something that just looks great and shows so much emotion with each Pokemon.
