Failing the power of friendship you can always try believing in the heart of the cards.

I spent a lot of time in primary school drawing pikachus. It was a time when finally, my art was deemed worthy by my peers! ... For about five minutes until they got sick of me again. Regardless, it feels kinda weird to be at it again... I don't think I ever did really grow up much.

Oh yeah. I bought it. Pokemon Black. ... .... Once again I've been suckered into this whole thing. I haven't enjoyed playing one since silver, but we'll see. I can't be bothered looking at what the new pokemon are or organising a team already, so I'm just going straight in with Hard Mode.

And who should wander along! A whole five pages without his smoke clogging up the page.

See y'all soon.

lol playing Black now actualy, no ida what half of the pokemon are or types, kinda threw myself in there, but the story line is pretty good, though i think i thought the story line would be longer than what i hoped. I hoped for sumthing like R/S/E where u go the league and then save the world on the side but it isnt. They the bad guy N is differently different from being a rival SPOILERS-HeTakesYouOnAFerrisWheel-/SPOILERS but its good. the gyms where tougher at thestart but the last 3 gyms are a piece of piss.

PUNT THE RAT The best possible outcomes here would be:
-Atty punts / steps on rat-thing.
-Atty throws ball and catches rat-thing without a battle.
-Atty defeats rat-thing to train dragon-thing rendering it uncatchable.

Atty's gonna catch it and she will HATE HIS GUTS! Or maybe he'll scare it away and she will still hate his guts. Or possibly she will get jealous of his adorable Dragonthing when all she has is an army of caterpillars.

It's her fault anyway. Obviously she was only PRETENDING to believe in friendship, judging by that penultimate panel. At least Atty was upfront about his distaste for such things. (Or maybe that was his magic powers?! Notice the only page she's cynical is the one in which Atticus looks her way! It's infectious!)

...I can't wait for the next panel. Thad's been fun, but I'm missing Atticus. Besides, seeing what the two villains behind the hedges think of Atty should be plenty amusing in its own right.

I love how not only her needed yellow rat is just... right there... in the background the entire comic. And of course Atticus is worth mentioning too! (We "-icus" people hafta stick together.)

Seriously tho! The "legend himself" used a pikachu... yeah Ash was a BRILLIANT trainer, full of love, compassion, and EMPTY POKEMON BOXES! I gave up watching the show a LOOONG time ago, but my friends still watch it... and have you noticed how many of Ash's pokemon he lets free? Butterfree and Charizard just to name a couple! I don't care the reasons, you don't release them! The whole point of the game is to capture them, and let them rot in the boxes.

Come on, all, how many of you actually release your pokemon after you catch them? I would be surprised if more than 10 of you did. My friend Mike does, only because he doesn't care. I mean, those special events where you get legendary pokemon.... do you keep them? Or do you release them after you get them? You keep them right? Do you use them? Do you actually train them? Naw, they sit and ROT IN THE BOX, like all the pokemon you catch that you don't prefer using.

Ash is no legend... he's a pokeDOLT!

I totally didn't notice the pikachu was there until after the last panel. Can't wait to see what Atticus does XD

I got white version when it came out, but I've only been able to play it off and on. Just got past the second gym leader (who I managed to beat with a full party, where at the very end I beat it with my evolved starter at 1 hp... I don't think I have ever beat someone with only 1hp total at the end collectively). That being said I am liking the game so far. The story is interesting and it is cool to only see new Pokemon (it's like playing red and blue again). So far you are the only person I "know" that has black version (air quotes around know for obvious reasons) and it would be awesome if we could trade/battle online sometime if you can play online. My friend code is 5286 0742 0350. Comment if you are interested. I know this will mostly likely be ignored but I was thinking, "Hey, you never know unless you ask.. you may be surprised." Love your comic and can't wait to see what happens next.

Alright, POSSIBLE adeptation to my previous statement.
(A) He punts the pikachu, I will be pleased!
(B) He punts the pikachu, then for SOME reason or another, keeps it. But he MUST name it something bad. "Vermin" is my favorite nickname for a pikachu. "Rodent" is also a good one! I would recommend against using "rat-thing" as "dragon-thing" is the name of his charmander, and that might make the joke become a tad stale, if overused.

The heart of the cards is cool and all, but it's worthless since none of the casinos have blackjack. Nooooo, they have to go with slot machines and Voltorb Flip.

Also, welcome to the "Relapse Club". We mostly just sit around playing Pokemon and remembering the years between us getting clean and the games drawing us back (for most, this time period is known as "puberty").
