And... ... DT gets a hug. PUT IT DOWN GEORGE! THAT'S NOT ALLOWED! Don't you know how my comic works...

People seemed to get a little upset over the last page. Just don't forget... Just because a character says something, that doesn't mean they're right/it's my opinion. Also... ... This comic is based on my memories of playing the game as a kid, not the strict mechanics of the Pokemon world. As far as I'm concerned, as soon as you've caught that Pokemon, it didn't do shit until you told it to. Frustratingly. Even when it was just fighting bugs.

Ahh bugcatchers. Didn't you just love how they always seemed to think they had a chance...?

Six thousand fans! Wow )8 The pressure's on. Thankyou all for joining me on this bizarre little journey.

See y'all soon.

Oh, please, please let Atticus win. I have never liked bug catchers, no good pokemon after you've got pikachu, and then you have go fight them to get out. Gets annoying.

Also, interesting thought, but if commands are necessary after being in a pokeball, then why can wild pokemon use attacks.

And just for thought. Metapod uses hard. Dragonthing uses scratch. Metapod uses hard. Dragonthing uses scratch. Scratch does less damage. Atticus, complains if he actually had any physical attacks.

Awwwww... DT getting a hug is so cute :) Although I'm starting to worry about the battle.. The possibility of evolving is too frightening, especially if DT has actually gained some experience battling on its own. :{

Edit: Repeating last week's question, could you post the page rough works as voting incentives? It'd be nice to see them again, particularly now that DT is getting more screen time :P

One hp left and *metapod has evolved into butterfree* XD Gawd i hated those f*cking middle bugs, i would attack them cuz that was there only ability thinking it would be easy then my pokemon would lose all their moves and be stuck with struggle then a weedle would come and poison them in the next battle >.>

That Bugcatcher is extremely rude. "You neglect your Pokemon. How descipable. Well, since your suck and your lead Pokemon is out, how bout a battle?" Right, cause THAT'S not despicable.

In case you missed it in the alt text of the previous comic, 'whenever' is spelled WRONG... even if you're British / have a lisp. That said; If the bug catcher has nothing but metapods this will be a good opportunity for Atty to practice poke-command-hollering. How do bug catchers with nothing but metapods even survive being in the woods? I'm going to laugh if he whips out a bad-ass scizor though. F'kin' love scizor.

1 Atty just anounced receiving his starter pokemon THIS MORNING.
2 Fire moves are not a problem for bug catcher since Atty just announced recieving DT THIS MORNING and in R/B game time whenever you meet your rival again after an hour or two of playing he always talks like it's been weeks in the story.
Whoever mentioned it earlier(flood?) bugs where always super effective against grass. Hardly anyone noticed because you need a level 30+ beedrill or a level 40+ jolteon to get a bug move that does any damage.

....Am I the only one who kinda likes bug pokemon. I mean, I loved Beedrill, Butterfree and even Weedle, if you trained up that damned weedle to level 20 something, then did the evolving sequence, a beedrill would be even more kick ass.

And as for the comic, truely epic. I wonder what level that Pikachu is actually, because if it is an unlucky level 3, going up against a metapod will be annoying as hell.

What's with all of you?
I hope the bug catcher wins. because too many ppl want him to lose.
plus, I like bug pokemon. If you know how to train them they are pretty awesome....
And assuming that he could have raised his metapod from a caterpie, that thing might use tackle/string shot. and unless Atti will know how to make charmander use an actual fire move, the bug catcher can make metapod tackle it senseless and win, because charmander doesn't have such a high defense as metapod does XD it's all about which trainer is worse, in the end.

D: A real trainer wouldn't want to fight someone like that. Because this guy does, he doesn't sound that much better than Atty. :/
Hmm... I thought the weird colored bubbles in shows might've been what the poisoned/sick victim hallucinates. Like one of those reality-altering drugs.

edit: what's with all the DT comments? :/ I thought the catching the pikachu part might've been for this battle. Or else he wouldn't have any pokemon to fight with. (although... Pikachu doesn't know that Atty hates telling things what to do, so he might get hurt pretty badly ^_^" )

Poor, dillusional Bug Catcher. Believeing his kind is more than just the guys who exist for the sole purpose of giving you pathetic trainers to beat the shit out of for easy experience before Brock's gym.

Edit: More specifically, existing to give Charmander trainers someone to utterly destroy for easy experience so Charmander can learn Metal Claw and Super Effective the crap out of Brock's team.
