Yeah DT, what do you think you two are, main characters of a comic or something?

Wow, I actually got an update up before midnight for a change...

Sorry if you wanted to see what happened next to bugcatcher, but those three lil' pokeballs signify that his time with us is up. At least for now, certainly. Though... I would have really liked to draw it. I was most tempted... But perhaps wisely resisted.

C'mon Atty, you only nearly got murdered, get over it. The fact that Atty's telling DT off could be seen as a step backwards for them, but... I don't see it that way personally. But that's just me.

See y'all soon.

No yelling at dt. :I
But he does have a point. They could have just died.
And that would have been bad.

Hmmmmmm... if i was a charmander what would i do to stop some murderers from killing my master...

I WOULD SET THEIR BALLS ON FIRE.
but that girl doesn't have balls- not that i know of. so that would be a problem. I guess i would just shove my firey tail up her pikachu if you know what i mean. If you dont know what i mean then you're to young STOP READING THIS AND REJOICE IN YOUR YOUTH.

DT has never looked so impossibly adorable.

And Atty's face in the first panel? Awesome. Though, I mean, he was in shock because of almost dying so... bad. He does bring a point. Murderers are bad.

Suerb Hi, i just found this webcomic... i am extremely happy with it. it makes me remember when i actually enjoyed the game (brick game boy days). and yes the Story setting where this starts its just simply wonderful! to even think the pokes doesn't simply faint, but can die actually is SOMETHING much needed! (now if it could be brought into the actual game....)

I have a little question though, i couldn't help but notice that Satoshi's statue (that´d be Ash's on the US/Eu) Referred to him in a past tense, and i am wondering if the author can answer me this tidy bit of a question (if possible, unless it spoils something of the story):

What happened to him, or how many years does this story is supposed to take on after Satoshi's adventure?

Much obliged, and thanks for your hard work! reading you from now to the end!

POOR DRAGONTHING!!! That last panel is so sad!!! T-T

But Atty looks so traumatized there in the first panel! So I can kinda understand whyyyy he would be angry!! He DID have a gun pointed at him. Psssh, details details.

Awesome page once again! I always look forward to new pages!!! 8D

Since pokemon are clearly sentient... I wanna know what was going through Dragonthing's head to make him wander off toward the TR's.

Possible reasonings:
(A) Thought it was another pokemon to fight to get stronger.
(B) Heard certain words (ie murder) and was just curious as to why.
(C) Heard "murder" and wanted to protect his master by taking out the source. (unlikely)
(D) Smells cigarettes from Thad and he wanted to meet someone else who liked cigs. (also unlikely)

... It's interesting how the fire on DT's tail doesn't behave like normal fire - it points into the direction the tail points to.

And @Kingkrieg, about Ash... I believe he is the Feraligatr guy. Though that's just a fan-theory.

No Atty. DT ran towards the people talkin about murder so he/she/it (is DT a boy or girl?)
could somehow evolve into charizard and burn them to a crisp. Then you 2 would have dinner to last a month.
See! DT was just trying to help.

awwweee...I love this page. DT and Atty are both rather cute in this page. And I also don't see this as a set backwards. He's understandably freaked, and DT does need to be scolded. Its not like their heroes of a comic book or something. (xP) But yes, never run to investigate someone talking about murder. But the fact that Atticus is carrying DT like that, when he used to force DT to run after him everywhere, still shows that things are changing between them. ^_^ This is the first time I've ever adored a trainer and his pokemon's relationship so much. (ash and pikachu just got annoying after pikachu stopped electrocuting him)

*set their ankles on fire....lol. xD

He's really freaking out. O.o

@eworm
I'm really hoping he's not ash...that would ruin feraligatr guy for me...he's been my favorite character since the "toodles" thing.
It seems very unlikely though.

On a side note, I theorize that the masked guy with the feraligator is Ash, who's actually not dead like everyone thinks! 8O (pikachu hopefully is, though. =D *gets shot by pikachu fans, but hides behind Raichu who is so much more awesome and deflects the bullets with awesomeness.)

Of course I don't mean Ash as we know him. Twisted Ash, who, after over ten years, finally got eleven years old and more. Personality-wise too.

Atty is scolding DT for something sensible. That's not really a step backwards. Certainly it's better than just shouting for him to "kill the frickin' tortoise!"

I kinda see it as a plus for them. It shows that Atty cares enough about DT to be scolding him instead of just ignoring him in a stunned stupor. And he actually ran after DT! That's positive!

He could take a step back by choosing to give DT a real name after their several hours together and calling him “Lighter”. For all the comments about Atty's freaking out he's actually coping quite well.

Thanks for your reply Mrs. Author, ill be posting from here on comments on your comic strips whenever useful or adequate.
Have to be honest: i am sincerely looking forward to see what new Partners would Atticus attain in the future that would actually be of the same type (primary story pokemon, not just capture fillers) as Dragonthing. and id love to see the concept of mean (yes there has to be evil in this world!) willed pokemon taking action against the heroe(s).

Well you said that people might see it as a step back for Aticus and Dt but based on the sentence structure he is implying that one he intends on actually staying with Dt for a while and 2 he actually cares about Dt safety aswell as his own.
