...So... I guess this is it...

I give her 10 minutes.

I know that because she wants that Pikachu Brent has too much.

I MEAN. WHO COULD RESIST A FRIGGEN PIKACHU.

THEIR STATS SUCK.

THEY'RE EVERYWHERE(not in this comic apparently).

AND THEY'RE ADORABLE.

FRIGGEN ADORABLE.

OM MAH GOSH.

Well, I call this day a success.
Burned down a whole forest, slaughtered innocent pokemon and bystanders in the process AND got rid of the annoying female character.

Regardless of who said that "although", I think Brent is going to experiance a lot more George.

Atticus:Yeah. Bye.
*Inner Atticus*:Whoohoo! She's gone.
unknown source: Although...

Actually, you shouldn't go by the Anime, mister first commenter, in-game, Pikachu has a 10% encounter chance in Viridian Forest. They are most certainly not "everywhere". Anyone in the game who has Pikachu had to search for their little yellow thunder-rat, I can assure you
EDIT: ALSO, their stats do not "suck", they have some of the best Speed, Evasion and Sp. Attack stats out of all Stage 1 pokemon. While they may not be Rapidash or Suicune, or something like Deoxys, they are not as weak-attributed as you seem to think.

@Bre Ishurna the Wolf: I am aware of that XD
What people have to take into account here, is the Atticus isn't the "Hero" of the story, that's a big misconception readers seem to have. Despite what you may think, Atticus is the "Rival", and the Rival typically has an easy chance of finding strong/rare pokemon. It's a very common Pokemon trope, just look at Gary Oak (in game or in Anime, both fit the trope)

He certain fits the role of rival doesn't he? I suppose this means he'll beat the elite four first, get whooped by the real hero ten minutes later, and then get dumped on by oak and left standing cold. Happy endings all around...

Well a Pikachu with a Lightball is better than a Raichu.

Maybe it's Thad or Trix asking him to join Team Rocket. It's possible, considering he managed to burn down an entire forest by accident.

@Guest: Your comment about the Inner Atty just made me very happy. ^_^ And it makes the pain in my lower back just something that I can ignore as my ass is being laughed off~ XD

@Angel...: Actually, we got the explanation of the "Brent" background for him. It's part of his name, HOly explained it a long while back.

I don't think that would be the case. The only pokemon that DT actually attacked was the first beedrill that charged. It caught on fire and set all the other pokemon/forest/people etc. on fire. So if anything, I would think it would be the beedrill that would get all the experience points. Except it is dead. So yeah...

I haven't commented recently, does it show? -sarcasm- The options for the "although..." at the end of the page;
OPTION 1: It's Atty. He runs after her to apologize and get her back, also ending the chapter. This would happen in a mainstream manga.
OPTION 2: This is HHG's parody so (in my opinion) George will be back in 1 or 2 PANELS (not pages :P).
OPTION 3: HHG knows the obvious choice is 'option 2' so she is going to mind-f**k us by going with 'option 1'.

@contradiction123: As I said in 'option 2', 1 or 2 panels. :P

@Tailsgod: Of COURSE no one had commented on it yet! You're comment #5!

@Frappecinno: Wait...how is Atty the Rival? o-o

@hellfire14: Is it just me or did you mean the sexual innuendo of "taking her"?

@Kisho (Guest): Wow...that's perfect! Haha, that sounds EXACTLY like what'll happen! xD

And just wondering, but how many of us make sure to read what HHG writes by hovering over the page? I know it's not just me, but does everyone? o-o
And I know I haven't said it recently, so...: HHG, you and your comic are both AWESOME! :D I would donate if I wasn't the poor, jobless, seeking-college 20 y/o I am... ._.

I noticed early on that Atty seems like a rival, while what'shisname who picked Squirtle (I forgot his name..) is the Ash to Atty's Gary. While the other guy is all kind and soft and such, Atty is more cold, maybe reserved, and he wants to defeat otherguy. He has pretty much made himself otherguy's rival, whether intentional or not, while the other guy is all "Hi, we could be friends."

People there could be several reasons why DT didn't get EXP. But my reason is this.

Atty and DT ran away from the 'battle' before the pokemon fainted (or died in this case)thus DT couldn't have gotten EXP.

"Although."??? No, Atty, what are you doing.

@Frappecinno: I agree only to a point. In my opinion, Atty is more Anti-Hero than antagonist.

While people shouldn't hold him to idealistic behavior just because he's a main character, on the other hand just because he doesn't have that idealistic quality doesn't make him a "rival." Again, see anti-hero.

I disagree @Frappecinno: I agree with the everywhere comment. With the exception of Pokemon Yellow waaaaaaaay back when on Gameboy Colour, Pikachu have always had an area where they're as bad as Rattata. The Power Plant in Red and Blue, Gold and Silver, the Trophy Garden in Diamond and Pearl and I can't remember where exactly they were in Sapphire and Ruby, but they dominated an area there too. Only Anime mad people really keep them on their teams because their stats are rubbish.

I prefer raising my team from as low a level as possible and all the even halfway decent Electric types are found around the 20+ level range where I have already set my team for the rest of the game usually.

Although... On chapter-1-page-4, isn't Atticus referred to as "Atticus Brent" by name? So Brent is actually his name. And he chooses Charmander, and Kahn chooses Squirtle, effectively making Kahn the rival right?
