Did anyone else think it odd how Nurse Joy said 'we hope to see you again'? How morbid...

Rough week )x Got projects laid on me to work on before even being back at uni, got my xbox account hacked so some berk could buy a ton of points. This has not been the most relaxing of Christmas breaks... Ah well, back to work. I assume most of us are back to school soon, if not already.

Ahh, buildings! Interiors! How nice to have you back. Something else for me to practice on and inevitably end up having me moan about them a dozen or so pages in. Man you are going to see so many rulers not being used to draw lines in this chapter.

See y'all soon.

Does George actually have Pokemon in all those balls? In this comic, is it allowed to have that many if you don't use them all? Also, how is she going to keep the ones she has straight with all those balls in her bag?

P.S. I sang along with the healing jingle as well.

@Derp-a-herp: They get cloned from their DNA and rebuilt to original specs before they were injured. The Original is used as a growth medium to grow the clone.

You know, I don't even remember what pokemon George has. I know she probably has everything that is catchable from the forest, seeing as she spent so much time there looking for pikachu. Does she have a starter? From like, some give-away Oak did before Atty got there?

In the games/cartoon where noone can die or even be very badly injured hoping to see you again is friendly. In a more realistic setting, like this one, for example, hoping to see you again means hoping the 10 year olds and other young people don't get killed by a bunch of angry pokemon before coming back this way. Or attacked by a really powerful trainer (who maybe has a feraligator, you never know). Or caught in a massive fire or just plain shot by some criminals. It's a dangerous world out there when it's not edited by 4kids.

I think she's just lonely. Everyone else in the world either stands in one spot or paces in a confined area no matter how much time passes. The only real contact with another person is when you show up. She's so happy that she forgets to ask for payment every time.

Oh man, totally! It didn't occur to me as a kid, but when I picked up my games again a couple years ago, I was like "...wait a minute, what do you mean you hope to see me again? You want my Pokemon to get hurt?". They changed it in HeartGold and SoulSilver to something like "Please, come back any time." which sounds a bit better. Then they changed it back in Black and White. -__-

Its Them!!!! Hello Miss Holy, once again that is!

everyday looking at your site to see new updates, but it seems due our timezone differences i never get the chance to be within, lets say, the first 10 comments or so, none the less that proves the people that read you have peaked interest and are indeed, attracting your own community of followers (some may be zombie followers so bring brains to distract them)

Now then heres somethings i noticed and perhaps you may be able to enlighten me and us maybe :)

1.George has a Jigglypuff...??? no... that cannot be!! THE AGONY!!!!!11!!!!1 (unless its the one found in the games' corner?.. naaahhh...)

2.-The development from Brent and DT against rock users in this city gym, are you perhaps thinking on... metal claw skill? (if Brent Ever knew the skill existed), i believe it would be too easy for someone as.. not slacking.. but rather.. unmotivated, maybe you thinking on giving some spotlight for some of the pokes that Brent are carrying? (with hilarious results)

3.- Will Brent ever find an affinity with a poke, lets say something that whenever he looks at hi he wouldn't see it indifferently?

4.- will we ever have a story on why Brent became as it is on his personality or should i assume its just the way he wanted to be and should be left alone?

5.-My personal dislike for this gym in particular, or actually Brock, did not influence any of this messages.

6.-Now with the headstart adventure, i noticed you will indeed break the balance between faint and a true kill (caterpies on fire was genius!) will we ever see this kind of losses from people, (humans are violent by nature) or trained pokes actually dying?

7.-will xxx do yyy to mmm and ooo will qqq the zzz?(interpret that as you may will)

8.- Will we be seeing pokes exclusive to kanto/johto area or are you thinking on true "whole" world pokedex?

9 and lastly.-For all that is holy! (miss holy), why is that Jugglypuff still alive?, they gave birth to the worst child traumas in Animation History make it "ded", kill it with fire!!

a little extra, and thinking on some previous poster's comments from the pages back there: What does it takes, what chances are there, that if, people would submit, lets say, a sketch of an ally, an enemy or just a generic guy walking down the street would appear on your webcomic? (like a cameo, i see that someone actually did that on one of their comics offered in your link section). just a thought.. this may actually require some better explanation, but for now ill let you live, excuse me for asking so much.

and lastly (i swear)...


Jigglypuff.on.fire!

-Cheers!

I find it amusing how everyone is focusing on how many Pokemon George may or may not have (two of them are probably DT and the Pikachu), and not that Atty is smoking inside of a hospital. xD

Though I, too, am now curious about the amount of Pokemon each trainer can carry; will it be like the games, or will it be like the manga in this sense?

Also, George is just too cute. x3

*Hand Raise* Also morbid? Well maybe a little, but think about the world they live in. Ten year old kids rush out into the world with maybe a bit of pocket change and some ear medicine in hopes that they'll be the best there ever was. It's also a world where towns might only be connected to through a dangerous cave. She doesn't want your pokemon hurt, she wants you to come back alive!

"Did anyone else think it odd how Nurse Joy said 'we hope to see you again'? How morbid..."

To paraphrase a clever troper: it's more that they hope you will come and heal your Pokemon after battle instead of just letting them die. After all, people are battling all the time.

Also, is that George doing the healing tune? That's so cute!

Hi, just wanted to say I'm really enjoying your comic. It's really interesting and it has a great plotline.

But I'm definatley not rooting for Atticus. I mean, he's a well-written character, but not a likeable one. I've see Antiheroes before, but this kid is abusive, amazingly selfish and he's also a petty criminal, since he stole the parcel that belonged to Oak. I'll be interested to see if he actually becomes likeable if the story goes on, but at this point I'd honestly like to see him crash and burn. Please don't think I'm criticizing your comic, though, that's not my intention. I'm just curious to see how Atticus will become a character worth rooting for.

Oh, and your art is to die for.

I actually visit the pokemon centre religiously if one of my Pokemon is missing 1 hp I'll go heal before I save the game.
It DID get me so annoyed by Nurse Joy's repetitiveness however that I started screaming 'SHUT UP NURSE JOY! YOU KNOW YOU'LL FUCKING SEE ME AGAIN!!!'
I soon felt dumb however, not bcuz I was shouting at a game mind you, but because maybe it was ANOTHER Nurse Joy I was mistaking her for...maybe SHE was a new one that didn't know.
