YOU CAN'T RUN FROM A TRAINER BATTLE!

The 'If I can't see it it's not really there' approach. Ignorance is bliss. Also, Atticus is clearly trying his level best to keep George from featuring on this page.

Don't you hate how you get the most inspiration to do comics when you're not allowed to work on them D: Pfffft. Ah well, back to making the children's book I gotta do for the first of my projects.

Thanks to Caytlin Reese and Jeremy Quinn for donating =D You wonderful people you. Makes me wanna get back to drawing so bad ;w; Buffer don't fail me now.

See y'all soon guys.

Though, you should check your TWC stuff, imageshack says it's violated TOS. Use a different image hoster?

Also, I'd punch the guy in the face, then take the free ball. I wish I could join Team whatever in-game

I never understood that logic in the games- it's like the trainer is raping you. YOU DIDN'T AGREE TO THE BATTLE- they just run up to u and there's NO ESCAPE. They're raping you. THATS THE ONLY LOGICAL CONCLUSION. I think the next page is gonna be a yaoi rape scene- MARK MY WORDS. -Mostradamus, out.

Atticus uses Sucker Punch!

Trainer Annoying dodges the attack!

Atticus uses IGNORANCE.

But really Atticus has a fair reason not to fight, the last trainer he battled nearly drowned him as well as almost killing DT. If Atty doesn't want to fight, it could be because he's (or DT will be) afraid...or he just doesn't like him (which is more likely)

If you get a good idea now, jot it down for transcription into comic format later. . . There are actually a few places in later games where you can refuse a fight or accept it. The restaurant of double battles is one. Also why is it 1/2 your money not 1/2 the lowest held cash amount on either trainer? I.E. If I lost holding 5000 mokEs and the other guy has 60 mokEs, why is the payout 2500m not 30? One of those makes sense and the other is blatant robbery. Especially because I've lost to a trainer then rushed back to fight them only to get back like 1/50th of what I lost to them in the fight. Those mofo's are banking.

P.S. Atticus needs a Rotom. It's the SUPERIOR electric/ghost pokemon. Endless amusement. *Rotom has possessed stopwatch. Rotom has gained time travel powers. Rotom was never caught in the first place* .... hm.

XP The bug catcher can catch his ass on fire for all I care! Atty, don't listen to the guy, he's only a loser that's a waste of your smoking time!!! Now, I still wanna see a cute couple scene between Atty and George in the future unless there happens to be a plot twist later. ^_^ Hoping to see your next page soon, HOly! As always, you and your comic are epic! XD

In the game is it not just that you accept all battles? Automatically. Without being asked. Ever. This conversation makes no sense though, since when is saying no to starting something the same as giving up in the middle? At least, as far as owing competitors money?
Which is the second most annoying part of the game, being near the end of a dungeon with hurt pokemon, no healing items or pokeballs left and suddenly realising you've got tons of money to buy them with, assuming you don't lose half of it before the next town where you won't need them anyway.

At least Atty is putting up a fight not to fight (because that sentence makes total sense). In the games your character just said nothing and let it happen.

By the way, is it just me, or is George's design really similar to Red Riding Hood's in Brightside?

in the games you start off with nothing and get 3k from battling your rival (If I'm not very mistaken). But since he didn't accept his rival's money... he's supposed to have nothing, right? :O

AHAHA! I always wondered about that! Especially when the rules say "When you make eye contact" and all these people appear from the sides!

Also, if you are running to a pokecenter to save your last pokemon from dying, a trainer appears and requests a battle with you and your last, dying teammate. I think the trainer has a good enough reason to say "Hell No."

I had these moments in Yellow. I had my level 20 Nidorino and my Level 19 Mankey go against Level 5 Caterpie from a trainer.

In this case;

Atticus is just to awesome to be pressured to battle. And he won't be robbed.

alt text comment With the crazy amount of technology in the Pokemon world (teleportation via computer terminals, instantaneous pokecenter heals, high-fidelity conversion of matter to energy and back again [during pokemon storage/capture inside the pokeballs], high-accuracy pokemon recognition [so the pokeball doesn't capture, say, Atticus], AND A F****** AWESOME near-INFINITE HOLDING BACKPACK),
I wouldn't be surprised if the pokeballs had some heat-seeking device built in.

so I thought you should be proud, that I went off and started a new game on my FireRed Version and before I'd really thought about it I named my character Atticus and my rival MaskGuy and my charmander Dragonthing. I wanna know what to call my Pikachu! Atticus had to have some snappy nickname for it right? I can't wait. ^^
