And thus, we say farewell to our Bugcatcher. I'm sure you'll miss him.

You didn't really think I'd make you sit through that many more Metapod battles, did you? Of course not D: Can you imagine how hard it would be to come up with more camera angles for it I haven't already used... Nightmare.

My fondness for shoe panels and the sound effect 'donk' makes itself evident again.

Accursed summer! I have so many great and enjoyable games to play, but I will resist! A bit! For there is also much art to be done...

See y'all soon.

The 'donk' sound effect is actually really cute now when I think about it.

Atticus is breaking too many rules. Attacking without command? Catching a Pikachu in one shot? And now he's running from a trainer battle? I wish I could hack like that...

BTW, Atticus is definitely the most awesome trainer ALIVE. He can make Pokemon fight without command AND he catches them without a problem. What a proper BAMF.

I think it would be awesome if someday you do a play on the idea that if you stand one step out of a NPC's tunnel-vision waiting for them to turn 90 degrees, you can run past them. :D

I hate to actually speak reasonably, but after beating those two Nido's earlier he should have learned Ember by now. It takes like, two trainer battles to level up that much.

Now, I'm not saying that Atticus should know this. I don't think it's going to hit him that DT can learn more than just scratch until far down the road. BUT. DT should have figured it out by now, and since he's working without taking commands, it should have hit him that he could just roast the bug.

Unless an attack can't be executed initially without the trainer commanding it? He didn't use scratch until Atticus commanded it, either. Hrm. This bears thinking about.

A few things I would like to say;
-How is insulting the people you want to read your comic going to make them want to read it?
-If you think your comic is so much better, then why are you reading this one? Nobody's forcing you to...
-Your comic is decidedly NOT better than this one.
I mean, seriously. Your comic a sprite comic which doesn't even reach the higher end of sprite comic quality(which isn't even the best to begin with) and you are comparing it to a pretty well-crafted semi-original webcomic.

...AAAAAAAAAAAAAAANYWAY...
Why DID that guy want to fight anyway?
It's not like he could really win...
Not with five Metapod and a Caterpie.

Hmm... It's funny. Given his ignorance/complete lack of respect for the established rules, Atty is somewhere between the one sane man in existence and some kind of eldritch abomination for whom the laws of reality are merely quaint suggestions.
Wait a minute... Eldritch abomination? That which was never meant to be? Could he be the son of Missingno!?

Obviously not, but it makes me laugh to think about it. :P

If all you people could run from battles you'd end up stuck needing an HM you can't use until you beat a gym leader whose pokemon are about 30 levels higher than yours. Who happens to be three cities and three dungeons walking distance away. That and failing to get away then being hyper beamed or some such would make it a lot less useful. Oh, can you please draw Atty trying to make a pidgie use fly sometime? For some reason I find that hilarious.

What annoys me most in the games is not the fact tht you HAVE to accept a trainer battle, but the fact that a trainer with a predictable/repeating movement pattern (knowing it allows you to run past them without being seen) will always turn in your direction know matter what just as you pass them.

HOW DID YOU KNOW I WA GOING BY YOU WERE LOOKING THE OTHER WAY AND WERE TOO FAR AWAY TO HEAR ME ARE YOU PHYCIC?

I get that it's the bugcatcher (right?) because the bubbles are all in the same area of the last three panels. But it looks funny :3

Much love for the comic! I was much more of an Atty while playing, I realize now. Only I didn't get the choice of walking away. Go figure.

Atti you're my hero, for doing the one thing I've always wanted to do when facing inconveniently placed trainer battles.

H0ly your comic is amazing, I love your art style and I love your story. For as far as possible in the pokémon world it actually makes sense. I have a question though, from what I can remember from the anime and the earlier games it was strongly implied that pokémon are aliens, are you going to do anything with this? I remember I always went 'but if pokémon are aliens wtf happened to the original wildlife over there?'

My guess is that when Pokemon came along, they killed off most of the normal animals and took their place. Or maybe, Pokemon ARE the natural wildlife(or most of them are) and the boring animals are the aliens.*spooky noises*
