You KNEW this had to happen. Another note for anyone who never played the Pokemon games. When you're just starting out... Metapods are assholes. Live to be annoying.

Originally when I sketched this page there was no panel with George at the top, but I bunged it in at last minute. "Ko'd with one attack!" Is just so typical shonen... So much what it would say in the show... I had to put it in.

I got a real pleasant suprise today! I got a message from someone who has cosplayed as Atticus!! I was so chuffed you would not believe, it looks great. Check it out here- http://twilightcross.deviantart.com/#/d3euibi Really awesome.

One week of schoolwork left! Not long before most of us finish, huh? How exciting. See y'all soon!

COSPLAY!!! XD OMG, you're lucky that someone did that, HOly! That means that you've got more fans then you think you do!!! Also, if I had the time and was able to, I'd probably try and do a cosplay from one of your characters as well. After all, cosplaying your fav characters is fun! ^_^

My brother has the perfect coat to cosplay as Atticus. I could be George... but my brother doesn't smoke... That would not work.

Also, I have always thought that METAPODS ARE THE MOST FREAKING USELESS THINGS IN THE WORLD.

Pokemon Yellow was my first personal video game.

i battled Brock with a pikachu and a metapod that i had caught AS A METAPOD.

i thought it would be like in the show when Ash beat the Onix with Pikachu. IT WAS NOT LIKE IN THE SHOW. and the metapod only knew Harden.

i sobbed SO HARD because i had to shut my game off and start over, like, from the begginging cause i hadn't saved probably.

also: i like how they freak out at even the most common pokemon.
wait till they see mewtwo. they will shit themselves for sure. well, not Atticus. he's so cooool.

Shut your mouth George! Jeesh, she's going to get stuck like that...

I think I know why Atticus might even consider keeping her around, she's a walking, obnoxious pokedex. Like one you can't turn off.

I love Dragonthing, they seemed to have formed their own, unspoken bond. If you would go so far as to call it a bond...

Keep up the awesome work!

The only purpose of Metapod as an enemy was to make you run out of PP for your attacks.

And then hurt yourself and have to run back to the Pokemon Center...all the way back through the forest.

We're also about to hear bug boy's next power of friendship speech. Or maybe “This isn't just any metapod. It's a battle-hardened, inuendo-free Marks and Spencers metapod.” Then, when he loses with his team of every type of bug from this forest, come to the natural, obvious and perfectly logical conclusion that he'll win next time with more bugs from this forest.

METAPOD DOES NOT WANT TO BE HERE. I feel bad for Metapod, he seems really nonplussed about being a punching bag, but is resigned that he can't do anything about it. Dragonthing could just push the metapod over and it should count as a loss, it's not like it's going to get up again.
