See through tops of pokeballs? Bleh. I say, if you haven't labelled it you're leaving it to luck, and just pretending whichever Pokemon you send out was the one you wanted.

I almost feel sorry for Rat with the look s/he is giving but then I remember and I still wanna boot it across the field <3

Yes, Dragonthing! Make him understand the error of his ways!

I always figured they just memorized the order in which they put the balls on their belts.

Poor Pikachu @Takai: Aaawww. I pity the poor fella...
Reply belakxof (Guest), 20 Aug 2014 10:42 pm
ahaha yeah that would be me, the person with the fat black sharpie who writes on the balls.
@Graham: Dragonthing is still a girl

Isn't Special the only one with the see-through balls? Always found that a bit weird.
Reply Robinson3938, 20 Aug 2014 11:18 pm
@Taseli: Yes, but Atticus (the one the pronouns "him" and "his" where directed at) is a boy.
@BattleStarX: Meh. Why bother taking them off? Just get stickers in the images of your pokemon. No need to change stickers (until they evolve)! Great system!

Do I smell a moral judgment incoming?
Awww poor rat he looks so miserable. T~T Atty you better get your crap together and start treating your pokemon better. That, or at least give Rat to George.
Reply AFeralFurry (Guest), 20 Aug 2014 11:35 pm
Am I the only one that would just memorize which Poke Ball held what? Given a few weeks, I would think it would be second nature to know which one is which.

That Oddish is disturbingly chipper.
Reply Miakakilalai, 20 Aug 2014 11:55 pm
He's actually starting to get a pretty well rounded team. Electric, water, fire, and grass

Yellow I think Yellow was the only protagonist who could actually see into pokeballs that were closed.
Reply Prior Semblance (Guest), 21 Aug 2014 12:29 am
I remember this problem coming up in the anime a few times (usually whenever team rocket stole a pile of pokeballs) and at least one person did have stickers on his pokeballs to help identify them. I believe it was... Richie? The guy with the Pikachu that Ash meets near the end of the Kanto series.

@Guest: That sounds like a ship fic intro.

@Tsumeken: All pokeballs in the Pokemon Adventures manga have a translucent top half.

She's jealous cause he's hanging out with a grass type.
Reply Mio_Chouseki, 21 Aug 2014 03:50 am
@Prior Semblance: It was to identify which ones were his, not which one held what (if we talk about Richie, he only put a star on each ball, still no real difference). I think they usually learn the order in which they are on the belt or wherever they have it and it was mostly a problem when someone else has to pick the ball for them.

I guess Dragonthing doesn't like that Atticus is a bad guy now.
Reply Drewbie (Guest), 21 Aug 2014 06:50 am
How Atty views his team... I wonder if training with Dragonthing is the only training rat has had?
Reply SeriousJupiter (Guest), 21 Aug 2014 07:46 am
There's something unbelievably depressing and funny about the fact that the second Rat comes out of his Poké Ball he already has that sad look. Maybe he doesn't have any other facial expressions anymore. Yep, Atty isn't the kindest Trainer to most of his team, although he hasn't said or done anything to Oddish yet.
Reply Rorro (Guest), 21 Aug 2014 08:26 am
It could be that Atticus is now a bad guy and DT doesn't like it. But maybe Atty just doesn't have enough badges for DT to still obey him as he's farmed up pretty good. We are near Cerulean, perhaps it's time for a new gym battle.
LOL That oddish is super cute xD
Damnit, pay attention to the oddish!
Reply Unclever title, 21 Aug 2014 11:31 am
Lol, he doesn't even keep his pokeballs organized.
Reply Prior Semblance (Guest), 21 Aug 2014 12:01 pm
@Rorro: The whole disobeying thing only happens with traded Pokemon

I choose you......*waits for flash*....oh crap i mean magicarp!!
Who looks at a Pikachu and says "Nope"? Honestly.
Reply Someguy (Guest), 21 Aug 2014 02:23 pm
@Prior Semblance: Actually, it can happen to your own Pokémon, as well. You just need to drive their happiness down for it to start happening. I remember accidentally doing it with my Squirtle, one of the first times I played Red. (Losing battles is bad, mmkay?)

Strange little Oddish Jeebus! That Oddish is running everywhere!

@god shadow death: If that was the case, he'd be giving Dragonthing to George.
There is a lot of cute on this page. (Walking-plant, Rat) I fore see something going horribly wrong very soon. XD

Aww what a sad little face from Rat..
Reply Kittycatz22, 21 Aug 2014 06:27 pm
@The Missingno. Master: There was a pokemon theory about that actually. Its trully unknown how people remember which one is which. For me I'm going to put a special mark on them. Flame for fennekin bird for Pidgeot...
Reply Chelvo la Worm (Guest), 21 Aug 2014 07:21 pm
Hummm... Can it be, that Dragonthing is a bit pissed about the whole just giving the Item back after all the hardships the robbery toke?
Reply whiteteeth, 21 Aug 2014 07:42 pm
this comic is a personal favorite
Reply Prior Semblace (Guest), 21 Aug 2014 11:19 pm
@Someguy: Red version doesn't even have happiness and as far as I know it doesn't matter because happiness doesn't effect obedience in any of the games.
Reply AFeralFurry (Guest), 21 Aug 2014 11:36 pm
@Prior Semblace: Frustration as it is is kind of pointless. You have to be an even worse trainer than Silver could ever be, essentially torturing your Pokemon, when really, Return does that without the hard work of making them hate you.
Iiiiiiiis it just me or is his team turning out surprisingly balanced? They... they've all been acquired out of sheer luck...
Reply Doutonbori Robo, 22 Aug 2014 02:11 am
@gimletcat: I'd expect him to just throw a ball up in the air one day and catch a Spearow, or a Pidgeotto (because who really cares about Pidgey). It'd be better still if he threw one upward and caught a Doduo randomly... Since Doduos can Fly.
Reply ZDW (Guest), 22 Aug 2014 02:43 am
I think DT is pissed that Atticus has a happy Pokémon with a high affection rate or whatever its called when he treats all his other Pokémon like tools
@Doutonbori Robo: watch Atty 'accidentally' catch all 3 rare birds once he gets to that point....
Reply AFeralFurry (Guest), 22 Aug 2014 02:56 am
@Doutonbori Robo: ..Wait, really?
Reply Doutonbori Robo, 22 Aug 2014 03:12 am
@AFeralFurry: Yeah, the most popular visualizations of it are that said Doduo will run SO fast that it lifts itself off the ground, or that it uses it's necks as a sort of propeller.
Reply Soulstormraptor (Guest), 22 Aug 2014 04:18 am
That bird can fly, i know!
Reply Doutonbori Robo, 22 Aug 2014 06:58 am
Oh look at me. I changed the conversation from guesses as to why Dragonthing isn't happy to the fact that Doduo can fly. I must be so proud.
