Hallo everyone. Sorry I missed Friday's update. I aten't dead, I've just been quite ill these past days. I still am ill, but less so now enough to hold a pencil again, which is the important thing really.

On a lighter note during this time I did manage to make a funky new avatar. I have had more productive weekends.

I think DT's found his preffered location on Atty's backpack. And I like how on this page Atty's black eye makes it look like he's gone goffik.

It may have become apparent by now that I like to make my NPC's quite eccentric. I was originally thinking of maybe making this guy a little darker, but instead veered more towards the threateningly cheerfull. Either way never trust a guy who has a speech bubble tail like that.

See y'all soon.

And George is going to be standing at the gym, smiling and then she's going to ask "So, How'd it go?" and then she is going to get a nice shiny to match Atty's.

@Anyone who thinks George is being cruel: Well all he asked was to be taken to the exit. It is his own fault for not asking any questions besides 'So I can go?' If he asked she probably would have mentioned that he needs to badge to actually leave. Her job was just to take him to the exit after all, not get him out the town.:P

Feel Better Feel better! Thanks for updating. I find him sorta creepy, which probably he is since he drags you across town, and the text unique from the game is nice.

For all this guy's pushy prickishness, he's still worlds better than all the Gym-Maze lurkers that try to beat your pokemon into a mushy paste before you can get to the gym leader. Seriously, f'k those guys.

Good to hear you're not feeling so bad ;_;
Get well soon 'kay

Also Atty's face is what mine was when this guy showed up the first time. After that whenever I tried to get past this guy I would bash my gameboy's 'A' button in hopes that my pokemon would just come out and kick his butt so I could move past him and get training done in the next area over. Sadly, this never happened, and I was forced multiple times to go to Brock's gym even though all I wanted to do was train in the wild.
Your comic is awesome. Red/Blue/Yellow/Leaf green/Fire red. They were my first pokemon games. This brings back so many good memories.

Haha, love this page. Atty's face is priceless. For some reason I never really had a problem with that guy in the games... since I'd already caught more pokemon with the pokeballs from Oak on the way anyway and trained them to beat the gym as planned. /Have pokeballs/Will catch/

Feel better soon! Goodness, that guy is a true creeper. I think that is WAY creepier than a darker character. Its the ones that are always cheerful that you gotta watch out for. On another note, Is that new avatar of yours from Idiot Abroad? Looks like the same bloke.

What Atty needs to do is learn that glitch that allows him to skip past that guy. But then again I don't think he'd know about that too well.

@Caio_SV: Why of course not. One must stride magestically with an air of undeserved importance with their chests puffed out in pride as they gracefully exit Pewter with their Boulder Badge.

Writing that amused me as everyone knows Atticus would never do such a thing. XD

Atty has an advantage over us though. He can pay some kid to loudly anounce how they're leaving without the badge and go when the guy drags them off. Best five bucks he'd ever spend.

No worries! Don't worry Atty, I just started playing Red Version, and I beat Brock when all I had was a Charmander and Pikachu, too! (total coincidence, mind you. I didn't realize I had the same Pokemon as Atty until I left Pewter).

Well, everyone was expecting that but it was still a masterful job in expressing it! He was every bit the crazed fanatic I knew he would be! Loved it~

George soooo set him up, I do wonder how she would know, unless she's tried it herself already. Still hate her.

This guy just NEEDS a van parked around here somewhere, preferably with all the windows tinted completely black.

You'd expect that after all the time he stands guard there he'd be a bit more... jittery. The guy has to be hopped up on something. There's probably a small mountain of empty Red Bull cans just below the panel lining of panel 1.
