Can you see the beginnings of doubt about Atticus in George's eyes?

I have good news and bad news. The bad news is... I'm not going to be able to make another comic page for three weeks. I have a ridiculous amount of schoolwork, and am going to have to buckle down and do that. I'll no doubt post it to my deviantart when it's done.

The GOOD news is... I have enough buffer to cover three pages exactly. All that work, gone ;w; But... I suppose this is what it's for. So, expect updates as usual! And think of me, not getting to draw comics )=...

Speaking of good news, thanks to Jessica Heyl, and also to Ninjamander, for donating. I love you guys xD

See y'all soon.

EDIT: I'm aware the last panel is not totally true, yes.

HURRAH! Oh dear, poor George. At least she's not living a lie anymore.
April 8th, 2011, 6:01 pm
So people keep saying... But then how would all the WILD Pokémon fight back? Atty's gonna make Dragonthing a freakin' bad ass by the time he's done with him. Or just an ass, like him. Sad times when you have to stop your hobbies, H0lyhandgrenade. But I've been there, and will probably be there again, myself.

"Everyone knows that!"

... except the wild Pokemon who are perfectly capable of using their moves without a trainer. You need to savvy up, young George.
April 8th, 2011, 6:21 pm
GEORGE. DONT DOUBT ATTICUS. Damn womenz, they dont understand anything!
April 8th, 2011, 6:24 pm
Obviously Atticus will be the first trainer whose pokémon aren't mindless drones that can't even snore unless their trainer tells them to.

Atticus totally gets this. Silly George.

:( The suspense is gonna kill me for having to wait for the next page, but I hope that you get good grades on the work you're doing, HOly. Well, I too have been in that kind of problem multiple times... Wither it be drawing or writing. I just hope that you get to finish your work so that you can enjoy making your comic(s) again. :3

Also, I must say this... Atty apparently didn't think of putting something on DT so that no one would think he's wild like that and it's obvious that even though she notices how he's kinda off about what to do with pokemon, still betting that she'll end up falling for him. ^_^

Well, epic comic as always and I hope that you get your school work done soon. I'm just glad that I don't have to have school work any more, always hated it and always will... Well, culinary and science weren't bad so that's my exception to school work. :3 Just hate math... My nemesis! >_<
April 8th, 2011, 6:54 pm
Atticus: RIGHT! Everyone knows... that.
April 8th, 2011, 7:09 pm
Riiiight. That totally accounts for all those times in the anime when the trainers only say things like "finish him" and "do your stuff" and their Pokemon DECIDE FOR THEMSELVES what attack to use. And when your Pokemon is too high a level and acts on its own, ignoring all your commands.

Obviously, Atty is starting a Pokemon revolution. It's the Era of Cynical Enlightenment, or something.

I guess if it got beat, THEN it might be in trouble, but until then...Supposedly there's even a thing where a caught pokemon is registered to a pokeball, making it unable to be caught by another unless deregistered and released. I think that's one reason you can't swap the ball a pokemon is in. They say the trainers only bat the ball thrown at their pokemon out of the way so that the pokemon doesn't get clobbered upside the head by a small metal(?) object.

i love george :DD

Silly George. This is why potential Pokemon trainers need to be taught and pass some kind of test before given their first Pokemon, etc etc. Instead of just delivering a package to Professor Oak. (Speaking of which, now that Atty's caught Pikachu with what I presume is the Pokeball he was meant to take to Oak, does that mean he doesn't have Pokeballs anymore and needs to buy some?)
April 8th, 2011, 8:12 pm
Impressed I can just imagine George being super impressed by Atty once he says that he has trained a Pokemon to attack on it's own lol

George: Wow! You must be a great trainer if your pokemon can do attacks all by themselves 8D No one else is able to do that!

Atty: Yeah... I'm fantastic...

I forgot to take a drink *glug* lol

Isn't there an entire part on that end game island of trainer things where you can't give your pokemon commands and it has to do it's own thing?
April 8th, 2011, 8:51 pm
*raises* Who is this Everyone? I need to talk to him. I need to brush up on my knowledge LOL jk jk. Nice thinking Atticus
April 8th, 2011, 8:51 pm
I question George's intelligence, but I still admit to her awesomeness. And you know what, wouldn't Atticus's way be easier than the classic way like on the game? I mean, you put collars on all the Pokemon, you let five go out on their own and train, you train the one that needs the most help, and then when you're done you go looking around for your fainted or injured Pokemon around the forest.
I love this comic. Good luck with your school work! I've been swamped with a lot lately, too.
April 8th, 2011, 9:03 pm
George is so passionate about pokemons. Good luck on school work. :3
April 8th, 2011, 9:04 pm
i respect you for giving up drawing for a few weeks for school. i could never do that, man
April 8th, 2011, 10:14 pm
Atty figured that DT could fight for himself on page 15 when he used Growl without a command from his trainer. I have to give Atty an applause for paying attention to what happened just a few hours ago XD

Sorry for the dis Atty, I still love yous o3o

Everyone knows that Pokemon like to be bossed around >:U

Everyone... except shut-ins.... When a person says something that "out of place" in a world like that.. you'd think they'd instantly gather that he knows little to nothing about them critters.... Then again.. I guess not everyone can be a megalomaniacal insane genius like me.

*sigh~* Such a lonely world for folks like me.
April 9th, 2011, 2:16 am
Then how do wild pokemon attack?
April 9th, 2011, 2:52 am
Atty's complete lack of knowledge allowing him to slack off. If George had thought of that she'd have tons of pikachus by now.
April 9th, 2011, 7:48 am
That reminds me... The Battle Frontier had the Battle Palace, in which your Pokemon fight on their own, without any commands.

In my eyes, it is the ultimate challenge to proof the trust between the pokemon and their trainer.

Atticus will do well in the Battle Palace later, but he will have to make use of commands when he uses rental pokemon.

Edit: Too bad that George and the bugcatcher have no idea of the Battle Palace.
April 9th, 2011, 7:50 am
Love this comic, luckly you got the buffer, sorry that youve got to use it, but thats what happens.

Ofcourse youll eventually get it back, you just got to hope you dont have to use it untill youve got it. Plus, summer is comming up, school goes away then, so its not a problem!

Aww, I do hope you do well with your work then. Epic comic as usual^^ and as for George, she has no idea what Atty's like.
April 9th, 2011, 9:30 am
Atticus: ...Eh? Is that why it got beaten up so badly every time I had a battle with someone.
Bug guy and George: (facepalm)

At least now Atticus actually knows. About time someone told him. >_>"

Oh, by the way... Hopefully the whole buffer thing works out for you. When I had to use up my buffer, I couldn't build it back up.

I wonder if she'll start hating atticus like all of us where when this comic started. Hmm something to ponder.
April 9th, 2011, 10:56 am
...I wish pokemon would do that...I mean, train on their own.

Great comic. :D
April 9th, 2011, 12:16 pm
There are so many comments so i don't know if anyone pointed it out but Defenseless is spelled with an 's', not a 'c'

Ohh Atti...everyone knows THAT! >.>

hrm... i think at this point i would say "i'm trying something new: when i'm through with him, he won't even need me anymore." ... but that's not how atticus talks... or thinks

Commands What George is failing to realize is that "go into the woods and kill bugs until you're too tired to kill bugs anymore, Then return." IS a command.
Jim (Guest)
April 9th, 2011, 3:39 pm
Silly George How can she not see that Atticus is expanding his Pokemon's vocabulary! it's the perfect plan for outsmarting your opponent! Atticus:"Dragon-thing kill that thing!" Opponent:"what is a dragon-thing? isnt that a charmander? and kinda atk is kill?" *Charmander uses moves on the opponents pokemon while the trainer is confuse and wins while the other pokemon is awaiting commands*
April 9th, 2011, 6:42 pm
why do they bother argueing :I you cant capture a cought pokemon any way atty just needs to return it an thatl prove it :I
April 9th, 2011, 6:42 pm
and nuh huh george D: pokemon dont need comands to attack well atleast not in pokemon black and white :I the manga....
April 9th, 2011, 8:49 pm
Good thing he caught the pikachu, otherwise, when DT finally got knocked out, he'd black out in the woods and wouldn't be aware of anything else until he woke up in the Pokémon center. wearing a french maid's outfit. And a traffic cone. And missing a kidney.

April 9th, 2011, 9:29 pm
Wait, if they can't attack without commands then how do they battle wild pokemon?
POE (Guest)
April 9th, 2011, 9:48 pm
What what was Atty doing when DT was training...? Wandering around in the forest picking up yellow mice and girls? Oh I love this...
Iarei (Guest)
April 9th, 2011, 10:56 pm
Stalkers @Davo : I like the way you think, sir. However, given that George is following him I think it far more likely that he'd be missing something other than a kidney. Like, say, his pikachu. . . or pants.

That person with the hoddie is way to dramatic. LOL let the Atty train the dragonthing however he wants.
April 10th, 2011, 10:00 am

All caught up now. Sooo good.
April 10th, 2011, 10:47 am
you misspelled "defenseless".

EDIT: Ah, never mind. British spelling.
Iarei (Guest)
April 10th, 2011, 12:57 pm
Ah you silly Brits with your "aluminium" and your "defenceless" and your "wheneber"... wait that last one ain't right. Then again I just used "ain't" in a sentence so who am I to talk?
Squival (Guest)
April 10th, 2011, 1:51 pm
Just finished reading the comic so up to this point and I love the comic so far. Cant get over how cute you made Charmander, it's great stuff!
Also yay for you for being British and therefore spelling the correct way!!! ^^
The Master (Guest)
April 10th, 2011, 4:14 pm
Well, uh... this is a SPECIAL Charmander!
April 10th, 2011, 4:37 pm
what? then if they can't attack without commands how do you think wild pokemon fight back when a trainer is trying to catch them! LMAO

The pokeball acts a giant brain tumer that stops the pokemon from acting on free will when it comes to aggression. it also seems make the pokemon hallucinate that it transformed nto a lazer and got transported into an island paradise with all its friends... this is some srsly fucked up science

Finnaly! someone tells the idiot!

Little details As odd as this will sound...I love the filth on the bottom of the shoes. All the little touches of realism you draw make your work really enjoyable.

There were exceptions in anime, but I guess it's true for games.
