Last page made it look like he was agreeing to go off on his Pokemon League Challenge Pilgrimage? 'Fraid not, I gotta try harder than that to get him to go along with this...

I haven't actually revealed much about Atticus at this point. He never said he wasn't interested in ANYTHING, he just isn't interested in Pokemon. But then again, what else is there in this world other than pokemon to be interested in.

Still, no time for monologues, there's bigger problems at hand...

See y'all soon.

For a world where probably 95% of kids leave home to become Pokemon masters, there sure are a lot of NPC's with other careers.

H0ly, you mean, mean author. Are you hinting at hidden depths in our dear Atty, just to distract us with the shiny swarm of doom-bugs?
This is why we all love you so dearly. Even if you won't let all of us be first commentors.

I see what you did there.

Love this comic. I'm hoping for some breeding shenanigans. Atty throwing out pokemon babies in the never ending search for a useful personality.

Curious as to what Atticus was about to say before DT noticed the bugs from hell. Speaking of which, this would probably be a good time to put a few max repels to use x3

Well there's plenty of other stuff to do in the pokemon world- just like real life, someone's gotta runs power plants so we can use computers, someone's gotta process metal so we can buy poke balls, and someone's gotta harvest corn so we can have doritos. I look at the Pokemon League like any other sport: Anyone could, if they so wished, form a team and play for fun (like company baseball games for example) but only those who are really good can do it for a living. For everyone else, it's just a hobby. I imagine that's why there's so few competent trainers in the games.

True, but however... if you think about it, there HAS to be people out there who aren't interested in pokemon; people who make paper for a living, people who make cups, plates, silverware, and all other appliances out there.

If LITERALLY EVERYONE in the world was obsessed with being a pokemon trainer and training to be a pokemon champion, then who makes the TV shows that Atticus watches? Who makes the TV he watches them on? HELL! How repairs TVs if they break?! Pokemon don't do it, so someone has to.

Yer not ENTIRELY alone, Atticus!
Just remember, don't let brooding take over your common sensory glands!

Now take your lizard, and RUN!

See, this is how Pokemon SHOULD have been. Realistic people, in realistic scenarios (guns, debating the rules), dealing with unrealisticly vast swarms of angry bugs.

@megamean + Gran In the cartoon all the materials, electricity and most of the production methods involved in making things require pokemon to get/work. The games aren't that far off.
@ varsalgen a swarm of locusts can easily number in millions. What we all wanted was realist people, situations and dealing with angry swarms of unrealistically vast bugs.
My main (read:only) problem with this page is Atty's objection to making pokemon fight. It just carries no weight from a guy with a known history of rattata abuse who's squashed caterpie coated shoes are likely still an active plot point.

I think people who fail more or less at being pokemon trainers pursue other careers... which unfortunately tend to involve working with pokemon. Whether it's feeding the Rattatas that run on wheels to power generators or collecting manure from various cow-themed and horse-themed pokemon.

I don't think I'd wanna use Ponyta/Rapidash manure as a fertilizer, though.

ah, atty. We're all very interested in your dream. In fact, I approve. I'm always wishing a pokemon game will come out that lets us choose some other goal besides Catching em all and Beating the League. I personally would love to join Team Rocket. xD

What about people who want to try becoming a gym leader? Or maybe the best pokemon breeder?

Master trainer is sooooo 10 games ago. xD

(ps: Holy, I LOVE that cloud of rampaging insects in the last panel. nicely done. xD I could handle a rampage of insects so long as there's no spiders. If there's a spider, you'll see me squeal like a 5 year old and drop dead. x_X)
