You know. I know. We all know. Atty doesn't know. If you don't know either, that's fine. You will soon. This is the page where I contemplated that George may actually be evil...

I feel a lil' sorry for the guy... I quite like the way he asks her if he can really go like a kidnap victim.

See y'all soon.

@Most of those who Commented George is only letting him go, because she KNOWS that he can't leave until he fights the Gym. Atty can be lazy, but would do anything to get away from George. If he gets turned down by the guy at the exit, then he will stay, and George will find him, but if George tells him that he can't leave, then he will be persisstent, and escape Pewter. George is one evil genius.

To everyone mentioning Brock... Is he actually still alive? :/ This thing takes place after Gary goes missing, and Ash seems dead since he has a statue and became a national hero, so I'd think other people probably wouldn't be around, either.

Evil George. Suddenly she's much more likeable. How did someone that naive come up with this plan, though?

@Jaizen and it's Route 3 ( or "of All Evil" if you prefer) at that. By now filled with angry bug catchers after the one responsible for the forest burning down, women who walk up to strangers to loudly insist you touched them and creepy men who want to talk to you about their shorts. It has to be that way because despite how hilariouse it would be, coming up with enough insanely stupid lines for all the trainers here to seem authentic would give HOly permanant brain damage.

Good Bye She's leaving him on her terms which makes him feel awkward and/or abandoned. She's good at psychology. Brent will get mixed up and only remember the good times he had with her, because of the way they parted. He'll return to her very soon I believe. That or she'll stalk him. I'm going with the former. Or that guy is in the road. Someone else mentioned that. You can't leave without a badge unless you kick that guy's ass and I doubt that will happen.

Rocky rock rock rocks! I just gotta say, I like the way you draw rocks. It fits perfectly with the pokemon/nintendo/anime style of 'generic background art'.

@Thecommander236, I think you underestimate Brent's apathy and general level of annoyance towards George. I think that, while he wouldn't mind terribly much to have her around, he'd be perfectly fine with never seeing her again. I doubt he'd seek her out unless he needed a resident pokemon expert and he couldn't find anyone else.

I really hope he does.

For one, I like to see Atticus continually break George's preconceptions.
Her look of befuddlement is just adorable.

For another thing, gently caress the Rock Gym. The only reason they beat anyone, ever, is because they hire Mr. Rock-Blocker to man the road continually.

Rock-hard determination, my ass.
