Extra update o' clock!

I wonder to how many of you, anyone who never had any interest in Pokemon, this is all new... The business with the gyms and the badges, I mean. Ah well, a little exposition never hurt anyone... Atticus certainly didn't have a problem with it.

I really was not going to have that sweatdrop there. Really. But after mentioning it to my sis, she insisted. The things I do...

See y'all soon.

Why does no one think about the money? Everyone wants to be famous. And if you succeed, even the press who are stalking you will want to battle you.

i didn't notice the sweat drop until i read your comment, lol.

i don't think it was necessary, it's way too overused.

i mean, i don't think it's bad that it's there; it really makes little difference for me lol. just sayin.

and i love these extra updates. i was surprised to see that a new page was out already. :D

Lol I dunno about the strongest in the world, cause there's 4 Leagues (Since Johto technically shares Kanto's in the game, it doesn't count). So I kinda wonder if there's like a Championship League where the Elite Four's of each region meet and battle like once a year or something to see who's the strongest? Or the champions of each leage fights instead to see who the strongest in the world is.

Those elite four shadows definitely aren't Lance, Bruno, Lorelai, Karen, Koga, Will or Agatha. I'm guessing they're original characters? And am I imagining it or does the second from the right look like masked dude with the Feraligatr?

It's always intentional I'm sure George just likes to pronounce things differently; thus, leading to misspellings. It's all apart of her character XD.

You know that the elite four thing is only in the video game. In the TV show, they have to face other Trainers in a tornnament. The winner gets a big trophey and gets to challenge the elite four and Champion.

So is the implication that the two villains you introduced earlier were/are pokemon champions? Or do the silhouettes just bear an uncanny resemblance?
See, Atticus really is a wonderful trainer who does not know it. Before he even heard what the Pokémon League challenge was all about, he had obtained the Cascade Badge (in panel 2).

There's one down.. Cascade Badge is obtained via Atticus' sweatdrop.

@Pokefan: It do make sense if you watch the anime. I recall Ash taking a test on Pokemon which was surprisingly hard even for Pokenerds just to get in the tornnament.

@Dragonfire (Guest): The comic is based on the game so it is pretty accurate for what it is based on.

Well I see our favorite masked man in the silhouette group! :D

I really don't think the two Wanted criminals would be a part of the Elite Four. Seeing as everybody would know who they were and they wouldn't be able to accept challenges if constantly on the run. However this is Pokemon and if my years of watching the show taught me anything, it's that Team Rocket members can make themselves seamlessly unrecognizable with a mere wardrobe change.
We'll just have to seeeeeeee < U >

she's not mis-informed, actually, in the games there are only 8 badges per region. I don't know how Gary got 10... maybe he collected some from Johto by that point.... or maybe he just made some of his own to make Ash feel bad... who knows what goes on in that conniving brain of his

Poor George, he's walked out on her already...

Atticus really has no sense of adventure. Or ambition. Or anything that might motivate him to be more an a janitor in an old people's home. Hell, even a janitor would probably train pokemon more than him in that world.

That guy is such a depressing lout.

. . . . .

On another track, I feel obliged to voice my approval for the quote from Pokemon Johto. The early theme songs really were the best, though the first theme song will always be my favourite. ... Ah, 1998, those were the days...

Devotion It is me again. I know I don't post comments every update like everyone else (in fact this is only my second one since the epic Feraligatr battle) but I just want to remind you of how inspiring you truly are. It has been roughly three Years since you first posted this comic and not only have you grasped my attention and other Poke-followers with your originality but also have managed to acquire fans from various corners of the Earth. Because I dislike repetition, I try to read what others have posted prior to giving my input (i.e. roughly seven people commented on a minor spelling error on this page alone, I know its annoying) but I've seen posts that truly reflect how much influence this creation of yours is having on everybody. Aside from the millions of fans you have in the U.S. alone I've seen post coming from Mexico and even those that have used your panels as profile pics (Chapter 3 Page 36 (RASP)) If you ever do come across to read this post, I just want to tell you that whether this is just for recrational purposes or not the devotion that you're putting into this comic is really paying off. I cannot wait till tomorrows update. Good Job.
