Our hero, ladies and gentlemen!

Poor Atticus. This is the third time he's had to run this chapter. That's a lot for him... Maybe it's just me, but I don't I've seen characters getting a side stitch from running very often.

Back to uni and it's abysmal =_____= I'll spare you the rant. But I'm not a happy bunny at all I'm afraid to say. Hopefully things will turn for the better over time.

See y'all soon.

FIRST.

Edit: Great, got it. I CAN'T BELIEVE I GOT IT.

Poor Atty, his life sucks :P

I wonder where George is, cause it looks like he's back on the path.

Maybe his ability to run would be less hindered if he quit his nasty habit of putting burning tobacco into his mouth.

I liked the smoking at the beginning because it showed this was more serious than the pokemon show. However, it would be nice if he learns something from all this running and loses the cigarettes.

He would have seen this coming, but there seems to be an objection in the pokemon world to telling kids anything useful about the pokemon world.
“Oh no, that strange scary thing nearly killed me!”
“Don't worry, that's just a [deadly, easliy enraged pokemon], they're quite common.”
“WTF?”
“They're perfectly safe, so long as you stay away from them.”
“Oh, good.”
“And their angry, stampeading stealth herds.”

Warning from the Surgeon General: Smoking may cause you to be eaten by Beedrill, Buterfree, and various other bug-type Pokemon.

I think NOT smoking is whats doing him in right now. Everyone knows bees hate smoke not to mention using smokescreen would lower the bugs accuracy. Smoke on Atti smoke on...

So the pain in the side thing doesn't just happen to me? :D That's kind'a reassuring. ...unless it only happens to people really out of shape. Then... I'm not sure.

The second panel reminds me of a panel I drew awhile ago, with the main character clenching their shirt while running for their life. Only In my comic, it was because he was bleeding from a sword wound.

Poor Atty XD Its from all that smoking that he sucks at running...

well he also doesn't seem like the type to exercise much, so even if he didn't smoke I'm sure he'd have some trouble running around!

@Asj: Haha, it's called a stitch. It happens when you run too far, or mostly when you don't breath properly while running.
(Stitches happen more frequently if you're breathing really shallowly, something to do with your diaphagm.)

I think you have the right idea, but not even Atty could smoke so many at once!

Atty: Dragonthing! Quick, smoke these cigarettes! Don't give me that look, come on, all the COOL pokemon are doing it. Also it MIGHT JUST SAVE OUR LIVES!!!

It's typical for a chased hero to run away straight instead of trying to hide in the bushes and the trees... Never gonna understand that one.

I don't think it's so much smoking that's hindering him. People who smoke can run perfectly well. I think it's more the fact that he's lazy as Hell. Or has it been forgotten that he's only doing this so his mom will let him back in the house so he can watch his show?

Pikachu used Thunderbolt!!! Am I the only one finding this very reminiscent of the Spearow attack in the animé?

Y'know the one where Pikachu saves Ash and they become best buds? But I don't know whether that's going to happen here or not...

Why heroes tend to run away than hide? I believe that's the fight or flight response? It's like seeing a giant tsunami coming towards you. I think the part of my brain that would be thinking, "Hmmm, wow, what a pretty shade of blue," would be overpowered by the, "OH FFFFF, RUN!"
