And so, Atticus learns that maybe Pokemon isn't quite as pointless as he originally thought.

A couple of people seemed to think last page was the end of the chapter- No, not quite. Couple of things left to wrap up yet... And as you know, the episode ain't over until the weird voiceover guy comes along.

... Alright. I'll hold my hands up. It WAS me who came up with the idea of putting that on the money, but I wasn't actually going to DO it. Was m'mate Tom who insisted I do so. Blame him.

I've completely knackered my back in. To lie down is pain. To walk is pain. To lean slightly over to the left is pain. Too much hunching over my sketchpad I'm sure... ... Naturally my physical condition is at the forefront of your concerns. Regardless, remember to sit up straight )8 Or your comics will turn you into Quasimodo.

See y'all soon.

I was thinking money would motivate him to keep battling and I was "worried" when it seemed his first battle was money free. Nice to see it was just delayed =p

Don't look at other trainers while injured. JUST DON'T We can assume that 1/2 the money held is just a default for a fight without prior stipulations. For instance, the stipulation of the first fight was that the winner got the bulbasoid, hence - no money exchange. Still, it seems like a good pair of shades would be a hell of an investment for a beginning trainer. Otherwise you're just goin to get mugged by the pokemon league Mafia Don every time he sees you.

:eltiT tnemmoC Once you get to chapter 6 and as such have 5 chapters done, you know what you're gonna do, right? Let me remind you...
1 - You're going to make 10 official Volume 1 manga versions.
2 - You're going to sign three.
3 - You're going to make some sort of contest that is fair for all (in other words, not based on who's art is best, as I would lose D:<).
Once that is done we will all put our very SOULS into completing our submissions and you will pick three winners for the signed copies and 7 runners up for the others.
I guarantee we will love you forever, so don't forget! ;D

<3333,
Kell~

(P.S. - or you could just make us buy copies through like...amazon or something.)
(P.P.S. - unless this is considered fan stuff and the Poke People could sue you...you don't need a disclaimer, do you?)
(P.P.P.S. - oh, it makes sense to use pounds over yen, the basis for poke-currency, as the opposite of PKMN, being MKPN, is also based halfway around the world. Sorta...)

EDIT!!!!
Oh yeah, and soggy cigs are nasty! D:

Actually, I'm glad you noted that. My back has been beginning to ache me as of late, and I wasn't even thinking about hunching over my desk the way I do. Time for me to sit up awkwardly like a robot.

Hope your back feels better. Try propping up some pillows and drawing on a clipboard? LOL NO that is ridiculous.

Chuh-CHING.

At first, I thought it was ridiculous that some people think he might turn it down, but then I remembered how indignant Atty was when he found out Kahn's pokemon were already weakened before the battle, soooo I don't know if he will or not now. Either way, the motivation for continuing is there! :D

Is that tape on the euro in the last panel?

According to this,

laying down is actually bad for back pains. D:

MEEP!!! XD @H0lyhandgrenade: KAHN AND ATTY'S TOO CUTE!!! XD You absolutely MUST update ASAP! This comic's too funny to leave the public waiting! But other than that, I hope that you feel better soon. :3 If possible, I think that making gag comics after a chapter would be funny, like the one you made of the "Reading Fan Requests" with the cast. That was great! ^_^ I wish I could make comics because mine suck... But I make up for that by single drawings that I do that are epic. If possible and if I'm able to, maybe I can try to draw a fanart for you but it might not be so good because I'm not good with guys. :P Ah well. If I do manage it, I'll post it if I can. ^_^ Promise on my addiction for sweets and cosplaying.

Normally I dislike the goody-goody characters, and I think if Kahn was the main protagonist, I wouldn't be too keen on him. But it's really neat to have the "rival" character actually be the nice one, for a change, and have the main protagonist be the one who's a terrible douchebag. Kahn is a great foil to Atticus.

And, by the way, I mean "terrible douchebag" in the best way (somehow...) Atticus is pretty much one of my favorite protagonists ever. He reminds me of Sysreq from the webcomic "Saturnalia". <3
