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.

You know, you must be pretty sucky yourself if you work like that...
April 11th, 2011, 3:16 pm
I like how that bug catcher is a total opportunist XD

So...the BUG catcher...with the BUG pokemon...wants to challenge a FIRE type? What the hell is he thinking...?
April 11th, 2011, 3:36 pm
Bug catchers always think they have a chance a battling,
when bug pokemon are kind of weak lol.
Hehe, no matter how beat up DT is at the battle,
DT can still win cuz its a fire type~ ;3
April 11th, 2011, 3:36 pm
Mosama: That six thousand is just the SJ fans. Most of Mokepon's readership is off-site... scary, isn't it?

Congrats again on 6k!

The bug catcher's an annoying little prick, but I love his expressions on this page.
April 11th, 2011, 3:42 pm
Time to get out the ThunderSqueek.

Congrats on the 6k! O 3 O

Who says he'll use DT? Atty just caught a pikachu remember?

Edit: firefox does not think "pikachu" is a real word, for some reason this makes me sad.
Um (Guest)
April 11th, 2011, 3:43 pm
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.
April 11th, 2011, 3:43 pm
I've always loved to fight bug-catchers. Easy win, fast exp. and money, and they're always so crushed afterwards! XD

April 11th, 2011, 3:53 pm
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

do not forget we have yet to see Dragonthing use a fire move; Dragonthing might not know ember and or Atticus might not know how to tell Dragonthing to use ember.
awsome guy

Oh shi- Atticus better hand that little bug catcher prick's ass to him!

Always hated bug catchers. They're so easy to beat.
April 11th, 2011, 4:03 pm
may I just say, George just keeps getting cuter and cuter. Keep up the good work, I love your comic so much (even tho I'm not a huge pokemon fan -shot-)~

April 11th, 2011, 4:09 pm
Ah i can see the battle now. Metapod use harden. now harden, good harden! one more time harden! 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 >.>
April 11th, 2011, 4:10 pm
George looks so cute in this. <3 But where's she taking DT? D:

Y U DRAW SO PRETTY? I adore your art, it's so...perfect. <3

Bug Catchers suck so much he'll lose for sure.
April 11th, 2011, 4:17 pm
Silly bug catcher.

George has an antidote.

People with antidotes have potions.
April 11th, 2011, 4:18 pm
You know what would be cute? If you made a T-shirt of DT eating a Curlywurly. Oohh or you could sell trademark curlywurlys and have atty's and DT's faces on them! Man, I wish I knew what eating a curlywurly is like, they sound delicious.
April 11th, 2011, 4:27 pm
LOOOL hahahaha, of course dragonthing will win with his fire against bugs xD bugs are weak! and fire is destructive!

But yeh atticus, YOU SUCK D<

But we all love it ~ aheeheheh so keep on sucking!
April 11th, 2011, 4:48 pm
yea bug catchers are easy till black and white came in my whole team got wiped since i had a bunch of water and grass and bug moves are super effective on grass now.
April 11th, 2011, 5:00 pm
Hurrah! I'm just looking forward to this comic, its enjoyable, your expressions and drawingness is amazing XD(which makes me a tad envious x.x) anddddddd as i say, i look forward to how this will end in the long run, only two more pages then we have to wait D: but still, its fine, can't expect you not to have a life after all XD
April 11th, 2011, 5:13 pm
But that doesn't make sense that they can't fight without a command. How do you think the Pokemon fight in the wild before you catch them? >.<

April 11th, 2011, 5:43 pm
Mix it up so earlier people were saying that the bug catcher looked like luffy i think he looks like a mix between luffy and usopp with usopps personality
April 11th, 2011, 5:58 pm
How I would love to rip his afro off his head...
April 11th, 2011, 6:17 pm
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.
Atticus, reject and go watch the amazing George save your Pokemon and learn from your mistakes.

Waiwaiwaittt, shouldn't it be "you really left your Mokepon alone?"

George and DT look so adorable, and as much as I always disliked bug catchers, I LOVE how you draw his hair! xD
Congrats on the 6K fans!

Guess Pikachu's gonna shock a few weedles.
April 11th, 2011, 6:27 pm
Oh NOES!!! Pikachu doesn't know how to use "scratch"! That and tackle are the only moves Atticus knows about! There's no way he'll win this fight unless George heals DT as well as cure his poison!
April 11th, 2011, 6:27 pm
I would buy an Atty shirt. SO MAKE ONE.
April 11th, 2011, 6:27 pm
Aaaannnddd Atty wins! xD
April 11th, 2011, 6:41 pm

atty is just gonna offer dt a curlywurly for each bug pokemon he takes out. instant win.
April 11th, 2011, 7:49 pm
George...<3 I am glad DT got a hug...FINALLY. And now, the Pikachu! I hope it is lazy and has a five o'clock shadow. hurhur.
April 11th, 2011, 8:05 pm
How does it feel Atticus? Being made fun of and shamed by little kiddies 8D ???

Oh lordy, I read Mosama's comment and immediately realised how much I want a t-shirt with Dragonthing and a Curly Wurly on it.
April 11th, 2011, 9:00 pm
Hey, is THAT why he caught a Pikachu? *evil grin* This guy is going to DIE.
April 11th, 2011, 9:11 pm
Well... there was that bug catcher with that butterfree. Yeah that one. Kill it with fire.

Wow, Bug Catcher Dude. The pikachu better win.

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.

And now Pikachu's not gonna be able to do anything cuz Atticus doesn't know it's moves. Then George will save the day with her encyclopedic knowledge of Pikachus.
April 12th, 2011, 2:19 am
Bug Catcher Wants to Battle!
Bug Catcher sends out Caterpi!

Atticus uses "Mug Trainer"
It's Super Effective!

This is how I see the battle going >.>
April 12th, 2011, 3:16 am
8D Ahahahahaah poor Atty x'DDDDDDD
God I hate it when god damn bug catchers want to battle >:I Hurrrrr
April 12th, 2011, 4:07 am
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.
April 12th, 2011, 4:46 am
i decided not to mess with the guest so ill say this rat thing know volt tackle just because rat thing is Ashes pickachu after it got done eating his corpse! All jokes aside all atty needs to do is throw a pokeball against the bug catchers head and take his money. ;)

Nana (Guest)
April 12th, 2011, 5:53 am
Since DT is poisoned I suggest that Atticus will use his freshly caught pikachu. :D It will fry all bugs.
April 12th, 2011, 7:14 am
Hah! That bug catcher is soooo dumb. Lol. I hate bug catchers.
Note: What did a bug catcher want with a Charmander anyways?
April 12th, 2011, 7:49 am
I wouldn't be surprised if the Pikachu owns the bugcatcher.. or they battle after DT is better and he gets owned.. but I also wouldn't be surprised if Atticus gets completely pwned either >.> could go either way XD
April 12th, 2011, 8:11 am
....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.
April 12th, 2011, 8:57 am
@RedScarfLuxio to err...
feed it to his weedles?
April 12th, 2011, 9:17 am
I love this comic, since forever ever ever<3
Just never comment, sorry bout that, specially since you commented on my shit.
DT's adorable. In every panel, I think. yes, it is<3
April 12th, 2011, 10:17 am
Heh, even the bug trainers tink he's sucky.

April 12th, 2011, 11:08 am
Heh, that bug catcher should never underestimate the Power of a newbie^^. Even they can win, I am sure atty will whip that guy's butt!^^
April 12th, 2011, 11:21 am
I believe the green and purple indicates poison, because it is supposed to be a "sickly" color? Strange glowing green stuff is never a good sign. And purple stuff oozing out of a victim doesn't look good either :/
April 12th, 2011, 11:26 am
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.
April 12th, 2011, 12:24 pm
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 ^_^" )

DT was carried off stage to be healed, I doubt he'll be back for at least a couple pages. Meanwhile, I have an inkling that this supposed "Bug Catcher" is gonna whip out an Onix to tower over Ratthing and leave RT staring back up at him with a " O.O;; " face.

Does anyone remember Lance? He's the pokemon champion and he simply tells his dragonite "You know what to do." And dragonite owns all.

April 13th, 2011, 12:53 pm
I'm not sure it's possible to lose to a Bug Catcher...except maybe the Kanto ones in HGSS.
April 13th, 2011, 2:11 pm
I'm really loving the design of the Bug Catcher... FUCK HIM UP, DT!

No George! Don't walk too far with Dragonthing! Everyone knows poison is affected by how far you walk and how close you are to a Pokemon Center! guys wanna hear a joke?
...Bugcatchers. Pffffffft! I wonder where they get enough money to pay for all the losing they do?

Bugs Even if he has a fire type and an electric type the only move atty knows is scratch
April 15th, 2011, 9:54 am
i'll say it again this looks
like luffy vs naruto when they play pokemon
April 15th, 2011, 3:06 pm
Well Atty does have a Pikachu as a backup! BTW, is it going to get a nickname too? lol DragonThing and RatThing?
April 17th, 2011, 6:39 pm
I just love the expressions of your characters. They're really easy to understand, and yet there's so many differences.

Best expressions in a comic ever. < Contest win.
April 18th, 2011, 11:48 am

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.
