...You know what I'm going to do, don't you...

This page looks a little different... That's because for a change I decided to go back to the digital borders and text. I don't like the text this way though, I remember why I quit )x I think I'll switch back soon.

Man, anyone would think from this chapter that I hate bug pokemon or something. It's all for lols.

You do wonder why lotsa the trainers out there only train one type, SURELY they must realize at some point that it's not helping their cause... Tempting fate doesn't help anyone's cause either though. Nor does suspicious pebble movements.

See y'all soon.

A bugcatcher is broadening his horizons?!?!
Unspeakable!

And i was about to say Aaron from the sinnoh elite four was a bug dude, but he was never champion. plus his drapion was dark/poison...

Trying to beat the game with just bug types would make for a good challenge mode. Blaine would be a nightmare, but it's probably doable...

I just wanted to say that I prefer the hand-done panels and wording better. The computer borders and words are much cleaner and neat/tidy looking, but your hand-done ones look so much better and fit the comic better.

Keep up the good work! :)

About time Eh, I stumbled upon your comic just today. 'At last' I thought. Someone took the realism of Pocket Monsters (original pokemon from Jap) and smashed it together with the american kiddied down Pokemon. Bloody brilliant. Ok my rant is done, but I must also say your art is on a level all of its own. okok i'm done! *runs from thrown food*

Oh dear oh dear, Looks like he will still be cannon fodder. Just in a slightly different way.

Also, I must say that I am rather fond of your hand drawn text and borders. I think it just goes with the style of the comic well.

Awwwww i've never felt more pity for a bug catcher or ANY pokemon character honestly. All he could catch with those grass pokemon are maybe some water pokemon- BECAUSE GRASS POKEMON WERE THE WORST! YUP THATS RIGHT. I SAID IT. IM A POKEMON NAZI RACIST. DOWN WITH GRASS! We should burn them all alive and get high off their fumes!

I really like his hair. Its fluffy and looks fun to draw. Also- my prediction for the next page is that he will capture MewTwo and become the pokemon champion/main character of mokepon after killing atty.

Don't stop chasing your dreams, bug catcher! Champion Alder, while not relying on them exclusively, had quite a few bugs on his team! :D

He doesn't even have Grass types. Bug types are very different.

Also I noticed said suspicious pebble movement. I assume it's either:
1) Butterfrees' psychic powers causing some crazy shit.
2) Shaking caused by mass movement of many many bugs (the Butterfrees and Beedrills from before)
3) They're secretly Geodudes and the bug catcher is going to catch some and kick some massive-bug-swarm ass and be totally epic.

My guess is one or two

@mosama I agree for R/B. The only usable grass move before solar beam was razor leaf and it had less than two-thirds the power of flamethrower, surf or ice beam. They're still better than bugs though.
Am I the only one imagioning a page 60 years from now, after the impending rampage changes his mind? He's a crazy old man who finally gets his metapod to evolve after decades of losing to trainers in their first week out of pallet town and either the butterfree's to old to fly or the exitement gives him a heart attack.

hmm... is he gonna see some bug pokemon that can do some damage?

I kind'a like the idea of having only one type in a way, though. Like for fire types that are weak against water, if you can defeat the water guys with them, then you have a strong team.

Here comes the end The trap is what Bugman will be lured in
from which will be no return.
There's no one who will ever cry for him,
nobody will ever mourn.

We will throw his corpse in the river,
so memory of him will wither.
He was lonely since he was kid.
Then we'll wash hands as Pilate did.

Because that's the fate of minor chatacters with trash Pokémon.
Au revoir, Bug Catcher. The world has been too cruel to you.
