I must confess. I always walked back and forth looking for a Pikachu. Why...? ... ... Because everyone wanted a pikachu! Even if you didn't like them! You had to get the bloody Pikachu! Like a curse...

... I'm not sick of trees YET... Not yet. Though I am getting a bit tired with how I do backgrounds. Not with drawing them but with how they look. All a bit too greeeey on this page. I have a habit of putting a background in near every panel I have, maybe I should look into different ways of doing them. ... Or. Just finding appropriate places to cut them.

I had to tone Thad's costume and language DOWN for this comic. Just a bit. No one needs to tell me he looks weird/swears too much. Believe me. I know, I really do. A mate told me that people might not be offended by there suddenly being fuck thrown about the place, but that it certainly stood out from the rest of the comic. Thing is, Thad would be overjoyed to hear that. It's okay, of course, he's a BAD GUY. They swear with the power of evil.

Oh and... Spoiler. He's not Atty's dad.

See y'all soon.

Comment Virginity *horribly cliche* How about long distance cousin?
I joke I joke

Keep up the good work!

I want a pikachu too.
March 6th, 2011, 5:38 pm
It's a beautiful forest. And I'm a teeny bit sad to read that you toned down Thad's character. But I shall read on anyway.
March 6th, 2011, 5:38 pm
So true, everyone wants a pikachu even if its useless for the first gym

and is that a pokedex i see in her hands?

Is there any chance that this person might be Atty's father?


Therefore, this person is Atty's father.

Thad is totally Atty's dad.

I could use another Sharpie.
March 6th, 2011, 5:58 pm
I think Atty will make him his hero. Maybe beg him to take him with him.

I think everyone wants a pikachu because of the famous Ash Ketchem, who's famous pokemon was a pikachu. ...but everyone already knows that...
March 6th, 2011, 6:04 pm
But...That forest doesn't even look bloody...

March 6th, 2011, 6:06 pm
Everyone hates that forest.
March 6th, 2011, 6:08 pm
Gosh darn that Pikachu! I never caught one until I had to, and then I bought Pokemon yellow...
March 6th, 2011, 6:17 pm
Curses. Trying to find a Pikatchu was so hard for me.

All of my friends had trouble catching pikachu, but I always found it when I was trying to leave the forest. Every time. :]

He's totally Atty's brother. Fufufu XD

... well they do look a lot alike you know <.< >.> the only difference is Thad has facial hair and longer hair >.> ...should i get ready for the Sharpie?
March 6th, 2011, 7:08 pm
Dont waste a good sharpie. Shove a pikachu up there instead.

Its insulting guys, shut up.
On another note, i loves Trix in the third panel. so pretty.
March 6th, 2011, 7:16 pm
I like Thad's design. Hair and jacket and all that stuff. Then again I always tend to like the bad guys... they are often so much more interesting. Though Atty is amazing also... Hmm... maybe just this whole thing is amazing.
March 6th, 2011, 7:31 pm
If they start killing pidgeys, people would start calling them rare, thus being able to sell a bird for 1,000,000,000$

It's the perfect scheme that Team Rocket may or may not do, and has no relation to the comic whatsoever
March 6th, 2011, 7:32 pm
XD Don't complain about things being boring in gray, or before you know it you'll be COLORING these. With COLOR.

Not that we'd mind either way. :3
March 6th, 2011, 7:38 pm
Haha. Okay, not father. Brother maybe!? (Does that result in a Sharpie??)

Your backgrounds are always so detailed!! Even if it is black and white it looks incredible!! :D

The sweet thing about having Pokemon: Version Yellow was always getting Pikachu automatically. :D
No Raichu, though.

I, for one, did notice the FUCK right away, but didn't find it out of place. He's a bad guy, so it's only natural for him to say bad words. But apart from that one instance, he has a very clean mouth thus far.
March 6th, 2011, 8:20 pm
For some reason i got the urge to play Pokemon again...
March 6th, 2011, 8:23 pm
He said fuck? -reads back- Oh! There it is!
March 6th, 2011, 8:25 pm
Dude. Everybody hates the bloody forest. XD
March 6th, 2011, 8:57 pm
I had this one specific spot in Pokemon Yellow where I would look for Pikachu. I could never find them anywhere except for in one patch of grass near the entrance to the forest to the very right. They were absurdly common in that spot. :D
March 6th, 2011, 9:19 pm
Well the bloody forest hates you too! D8< lol

I loathe pikachu. Kinda like raichu, but pikachu is too cutesy and useless.
March 6th, 2011, 10:26 pm
You know what? I didn't really notice the f word at all just now, until I read the artist comment. I think high school has reall made me immune to being bothered by those kinds of words.

Anyway, as long as you don't have him cussing every other word, the f word fits his character. And it can't be worse than all the friggin yaoi all over this site anyway. If it fits the character and is used approprietly, than by all means go for it!

:'O !! I envision a Pikachu extinction. XD

.. o-o I dunno why peeps would say it's Atty's dad. .. O-o I don't see the resemblance.. He makes me think of Indiana Jones more in design. 8D Don't ask why.
He swore? WHEN?! (Guest)
March 6th, 2011, 11:12 pm
SERIOUSLY! WHEN?!! Oh. So he did say fuck. Now I'm sad. He's not even much of a potty mouth and he'll be toned down? Meh. Sad, but I'll live. :]

On another note, you're right. Much as I hated the damn thing, every time it popped up in Viridian Forest, I'd jump to catch it. Why? Lord only knows. Perhaps I've been hypnotized when I wasn't looking. I agree with Someone-yada-yada though. I loathed that thing for its unnecessary cutesy-ness and uselessness. But Raichu was alright. :]
March 6th, 2011, 11:45 pm
ooo I think hes British! cause he says "Bloody"

Bug Forest can suck it I know that spot for pikachus... I had an easy time finding pikachus. So much so that I'd only catch lvl 4s. :/

Also with thatch I'm going to insert fuck mentally every now and then. Besides the pedo act he's actually kinda hot. But I like bad guys. :)
Moo Moo
March 7th, 2011, 1:16 am
Am I the only one who doesn't think Atticus and Thad look alike? Maybe I'm just blind.
March 7th, 2011, 1:17 am
Well, they do have an uncanny resemblance... But I figured he wasn't Atty's father. Though the thought did cross my mind. :P
March 7th, 2011, 1:19 am
LOL, I never thought so.

...She was right though. Three weeks of watching IS a little creepy... Who even spends that long in Viridian Forest anyway? That kid must reeeeally want that possibly-nonexistent Pikachu.
March 7th, 2011, 8:27 am
Whaaat Getting a Pikachu was essential for beating Misty ... if you always chose Charmander, just like me, lolol. :D
March 7th, 2011, 9:43 am
the pikachu sprite looked so ugly in the red/blue versions.
then yellow came out and it was lik(*o*)...pikachuu~~~
Crane (Guest)
March 7th, 2011, 12:46 pm
What's wrong with all of you? He's obviously Atticus's clone from the alternate dimension where everyone is from Britain.

On another note, yeah, pikachus have such shit defense...better hope that you go first and one-shot your opponents, eh?

@Rubygem They are (almost) ALL BRITISH! Mokepon is to England what Pokemon is to Japan ;)






Okay, not really. But you get the idea.

Atty has green eyes. His mom has brown eyes (or maybe they're hazel). Therefore Atty's dad must have green eyes.

Thad has brown eyes. Or can't you tell?

EDIT: If Thad actually has blue (or green) eyes I'll (pretend to) shoot myself!

THUNDER Honestly I think one of the main reasons Pikachu was so popular was the fact that every other lightning type was a retarded float-bot or explode orb. Personally I just substituted Psychic for lightning in my lineups. Nothing beats a good old fashioned mind-rape for the quick kill. (Guest)
March 7th, 2011, 1:50 pm

this is... who? poor Thad. he's stuck stalking a girl he thought was a guy and now he's being called a father.... more over have pikachus gone extinct?! i blame ash -.- he just had to stick to the story line and "catch 'em all". on another note. did anyone else actually walk around in real life when they played the game? i ran into a wall once... i yelled "stupid tree! use cut treeko" i freaked my mom out XP
March 7th, 2011, 2:42 pm
I don't get why they're stalking her .3.'

March 7th, 2011, 3:51 pm
Oh craps... The thought that Thad was Atty's dad didn't even cross my mind until I read the Artist's comments! XD

DAMN YOU PIKACHUUUUUUS!!! I hated those things... yet I caught them every time. freaking mouse-like cuteness... I hate it. XD
March 7th, 2011, 4:22 pm
dude more action oh yeah dont mind da vtar still working on another one >3

March 7th, 2011, 6:43 pm
pfftt I didn't even know Thad said fuck and damn until it was pointed out in the artist comments. And to me Thad always looked more like Blue/Green/Gary then Atty, but I think its just the hair. .-.

Everyone wants a pikachu well because the pokemon company brainwashed them into thinking so xD Or you know maybe not :p

Nostalgiaaa! I remember when I had Pokemon blue. I bought it to elementary school, you know, back when the *GAMEBOY CoLoR* was POPULAR!
People used to want to battle me all the time and watch if they didn't have a GBC.
I was THE champion, but I still wanted a pikachu. So I go to Viridian Forest and walk ALL OVER the place looking for one, and people would go O~o at me. Sorry, just a nostalgic rant.

I didn't even notice the Fuck on the first page, then relooked and was like "omg xD"

Please have curses :) We're all mature.
March 7th, 2011, 8:42 pm
I think I am going to like Trix. What is the relationship between Thad and Trix? Partners? Dating? Co-workers? Married? Friends? Rivals? Siblings?
I really like the background on this page on the last panel with the pidgeys.
Rawr (Guest)
March 8th, 2011, 2:43 am
... for those who say pikachu was useless they were obviously pitting the mon against types it was weak against or not super effective :P
March 8th, 2011, 3:04 am
wow, thad looks sexy in this one! *ahem* anyway

blimey three weeks in the viridian forest! by that time i would have just caught a weedle and painted it yellow and beat it up until it swore to tell everyone it was a pikachu. i could live without catching one
March 8th, 2011, 5:52 am
I think I like the girl bad guy... :D

I hate Pickachu. always have and likely always will. I never understood its appeal. Pichu is cute but he's still not something I want tagging along with me. In fact I don't really like any electric types, and my disdain for them continued until diamond/pearl when Pachirisu came out. Oh my gods I love that adorable electric squirrel. Pachirisu is MY Pikachu and you will never see my walking back and forth through tall grass looking for some stupid electric mouse. My roommate said that he was going to enter some event to get a surfing Pikachu and I said "why?" And he said "*shrug* just because. It's a Pikachu that knows Surf!" I hate Pokemon fans.... stupid Pikachu...
March 8th, 2011, 9:36 am
Is that Atty's da- *SHARPIED*
Bubbles (Guest)
March 8th, 2011, 9:44 am
This is kinda OT, but.... I've just relooked at the cover, and noticed that there's a Magikarp flolloping in front of DT. OMG IS ATTY GONNA GET A USELESS FISH? I hope so. There's no way he could get it to evolve.

edit: Is this supposed to be bolded? o.O
March 8th, 2011, 2:43 pm
Pikachupikachupikachupikachu... *shot*

I never really was as interested in Pikachu. In the Pokémon world, I'd probably be that weird kid who spent hours in haunted houses looking for Haunter and Houndour and such...

...Which, by the way, I have done before. -_-

CONNECTION. He-ey, isn't this pidgey-owning girl on the cover? She is standing next to Atticus on the cover, yes! So she IS important! :D I thought she was some random stranger being used to introduce sexay Thad. Which is perfectly acceptable.

Wish Thad was stalking me through Viridian Forest. >.>

YOU ARE SO RIGHT! By that time Pikachu's would definitely be in hiding or extinct by now xDD
March 9th, 2011, 2:42 pm
Not his father, huh...? D|

How about distant cousin? Eh, eh? 8D *shot*
March 9th, 2011, 3:47 pm
No more pikachus!!!! Dude this death note does work!

Get it! I wrote pikachu's name in the death note andit killed all of them cause they all have the same name and face!

I never knew there even were pikachus in Viridian Forest.
I was in and out of there, because I hated bug catchers and Caterpies. *shrug*

I was gonna say something about Thad being Atty's father.. but then I took and arrow to the knee.
October 15th, 2015, 5:40 am
Rereading... I just have to point out to other future rereaders (psst no spoilers) that I love Thad's final comment.
