I would imagine the feel of clutching to Atty's jumper would offer some comfort in a time of distress. Though it might pong a bit of nicotine. My friend actually pointed out a brown knitted jumper kind of like Atty's... ... So I bought it. I'm such a dork.

I swear I made this page long before people asked what about pid-pid.

Good news everyone! This week is TRIPLE UPDATE WEEK! Thankyou so much for donating, I shall see you all on wednesday.

Ooh, a triple update week!

I bet Atty will throw a cigarette and the addict beedrill will all fly away after it.

DT is just too adorably cute in that last panel :3 At least, judging from everyone's expressions (especially George and DT's), a battle doesn't seem too likely xD Which gives me hopes that DT will stay cute for a while longer :) Yipee! Extra update time! I should actually donatea bit once the tension is over... And the evolution threat is gone xD

There's a typo: I don't want to die, Brent! I don't to get stung!

As opposed to I don't want to get stung.

I'm kind of surprised they're all clinging to Atty. He strikes me as being not very huggable lol.

(I suppose imminent death is the only reason he's putting up with it too)

And then Kahn blows them up.
Or DT learns one badass Ember/Flamethrower.
Or Pikachu comes out and uses a badass Thundershock/Thunderbolt.
Or Pid-Pid uses a super Gust.
Or MAYBE the bugs all go past them to find those Butterfree that are making the scent/ignore them because Atty smells like cigarettes and not the Sweet Scent.
Or the champion comes in with his Feraligatr's explosive bubbles.
Perhaps DT cries for his life and the bugs actually listen.
Maybe the Rockets come in with one of their nets/robots to catch the bugs.

I have a few other ideas as well... I wonder if I'm correct about any of them c:

Possible solution!
Step one:
Find out George is well stocked with Pokeballs.
Step two:
Throw Entire pokeball stock at all bugs.
Step three:
RUN.
Step four:
Wait until its over
Step five:
Go back out and collect the sorry bug-types that got caught on the random Pokeball throw.

Would be different if they just killed them. What an anti-climatic ending. No amount of heroics could save them at this point. But then again...I am cynical. I look forward to an awesome salvation (personally, I'd bet on charmander evolving into charmeleon).

While I'm 99.99% sure this is not how it will go down: I'd laugh if atti and george get offed and the comic then follows Oak's ever quickening descent into senility briefly before the comic is ended.

@ eworm I'm thinking one of his many younger siblings. Or maybe he finally got a Joy or a Jenny to go out with him and has a kid? 'Cause lets be honest, he's the only guy in four regions who can't get away with “How was I to know that was your younger sister, aunt and older sister? This is what happens when you trust your identical relatives to tell me you'll be gone for a week.”
Having DT evolve and win the fight is exactly what the cartoon would do here, so it's not going to happen. Having DT evolve and then get kerb-stomped purely to be different from the cartoon is still on table. Atty still can't die whatever happens though. Not until he's told someone it wasn't him that killed the bug catcher, it was the one-armed man.

They're probly gonna black out. Remember what happens then? They get teleported to the nearest Pokemon Center. Wait. That'll mean Viridian Forest _again_.

Charmander learn's Smokescreen. It's too early for him to evolve. Also, Atty gives up smoking altogether seeing Dragonthing's attack.

Ofcorse its ok to die after you get to the elite four! You've lived a long fulfilling adventure filled life by then- you'll be tired and BEGGING FOR DEATH by that point. Actually to be honest- in the past 3 pokemon gameboy games i played, i stopped before the elite 4 and just ended there. Fuck the elite four. Thats to complicated im ready to end my journey after the 8th badge.

Hello H0ly, just letting you know i watch (and some guys behind my back too!) your comic still and every 3 days check for updates, i havent posted on comments because i find no need to, or no questions need to be asked, nonetheless i post now just to let you know and encourage you the marvellous work you re doing :) keep up at it ma'am!

ps. i think i have a slight idea whats in the bag, but the wild guess will be my own only, oh and im certain that they will be saved by someone else that either just passed by, or the bugs will suddenly go away by some straaaange skill probably caused by the real plot of the team rocket :)

cheers!
