The author writes:

#289 Slaking Lazy Pokémon Ability: Truant -- The Pokémon will not move on consecutive turns.

#486 Regigigas Colosssal Pokémon Ability: Slow Start -- The Pokémon's Speed stat is momentarily halved, as well as its Attack.

This comic was done because of the similarities between Regigigas and Slaking: Both have weakening Abilities; are Normal-types; the same base Attack stat of 160 (the highest of all Normal-types); and the same base stat total of 670. I know this because research was done.

The sprites for both Pokémon are from Bulbapedia. The comic itself is from Sabrina the Teenage Witch (vol 2), issue 30.
