Yes, yes... I did consider just posting the last page again to save time.

No one coulda possibly seen that draggy guy coming. I mean, how unlikely is it? You'd have to be a future reader or something, surely...

It is quite fun thinking back to my mindset of when I played Pokemon the first time. For a short while the idea of 'Gyms' baffled me.

See y'all soon.

All he has is DT, Good luck! XD

Edit: Oh yeah he has a Pikachu. XD

Edit again: LOL did he use DT's Tail to light a sig? XD

Heh. Dragonthing and Mousething are gonna do just fine here.
February 24th, 2012, 5:35 pm
OMG!!!!! this is the closest I've ever been to the top! ...Will he ever stop smokeing?
February 24th, 2012, 5:36 pm
I wonder if George is going to battle Brock too. Atty has to win somehow either way. It feels like they've been in Pewter forever.
yay (Guest)
February 24th, 2012, 6:00 pm
Anyone think he can win with dragonthing?
February 24th, 2012, 6:19 pm
He's ganna need more pokemon...
February 24th, 2012, 6:42 pm
Who say they gotta win?

H0ly added an anime-like Team Rocket team and this comic already started out as a parody meant to tell what wrong with the game logic-wise and generally meant to be funny and not so serious.

I also have a weird feeling that George will end up doing this gym anyway after Atty loses. God forbid if DT evolve this early in the series.

Oh I hated facing brock, Charmender has a HUGE disadvantage against rock-types

That mouseover text... It does work wonderfully. Haha.
George works fast, and apparently likes older guys.
February 24th, 2012, 7:24 pm
I wonder how he'll pull of a win against the Pewter Gym Leader...? He could get lucky and think outside the box like Ash did, but that would just give George more fuel on the obsessive fire
(I love George so much~)

Great comic, i wonder if it's brock or a totally diffrent gym leader we're going to see in the next comic :)

@MissingParticle: i allways used to stick out in viridian forest, catch a caterpie and lvl my starter + caterpie to lvl 10-12.
once it evolves in a butterfree it gets confusion, wich tears brock's team apart :)

You gotta love how Dragonthing doesn't even blink at being used as a cigarette lighter.
February 24th, 2012, 9:10 pm
XDD He's using DT's tail to light his cigar ff.
February 24th, 2012, 9:29 pm
Oh hey look, Bratticus' black eye is gone now. So much for seeing that for another 4 or so chapters.

DT lighter-mode back on :p He's just too cute! I like the silhouette in the first panel. Although his arm in the third panel looks kinda weird. Looks more like a blob than an arm from that perspective. But he's still cute like that :3
February 24th, 2012, 9:57 pm
"You'd think people would find something better to do with their time."
Either Atty's a hypocrite, or he's changing already.
Nerxual Oh
February 24th, 2012, 9:58 pm
Well so much for mousething and dragonthing living. I dislike onixs. If I want a big snake like creature. It be dragonair or gryarados. I also found out recently that I'm fond of Blastoises :p They remind me of Bowser somewhat too
February 24th, 2012, 10:29 pm
Aaaand Random Cave Guy is *still* walking straight into a wall...
February 25th, 2012, 1:03 am
I'm starting to think that gym-guide man has mastered the whole perception thing. I think he truely believes that that wall doesn't exist and is merely an illusion of the mind, so therefore he passes through it.
or hes a ghost type.... yeah that's probably it.
February 25th, 2012, 1:24 am
@Luxatrum: No it's not. It's still clearly visible.

@Squirrel: I never knew the Butterfree thing. I just kept leveling up my Pidgey, Rattata, Charmander and Pikachu until they could defeat Brock's Pokemon and simply carried my Butterfree because I like Butterfree. It was always my Charmander that destroyed his Onix with Metal Claw or just by consistently using Ember while my Rattata pwned his Geodude with Hyper Fang which is pretty powerful even against types it is weak against.
February 25th, 2012, 4:25 am
Did george just call atty a dope!? That's suprisingly unfriendly of her! And yeah, people have nothing but time in the pokemon world, where no-one ever has to work or go to school and most of the important things are given away for free
February 25th, 2012, 5:13 am
No it hasn't. His right eye still has a nice panda look to it.
February 25th, 2012, 5:14 am
Didn't the teach Butterfree confusion thing start in yellow? Along with the teach Mankey low kick thing? I only ask because HOly mentiopned using r/b movesets before somewhere and they might not count.
@interspark yeah, free. Oft6en after sending the ten year old to a place too dangerous for the adult who has it now. You pay for it by not telling the police about child labour law violations.
February 25th, 2012, 7:21 am
Is it just me, or does Atty look kinda...scared?
distangel (Guest)
February 25th, 2012, 9:40 am
does charmander know metal claw? Xp and does atty know charmander can use metal claw?
Cory (Guest)
February 25th, 2012, 9:50 am
@AlkseeyaKC: Both are fairly useless against Brock anyways. XD
Also, yes he did, it's at least the 3rd time he used DT's fire. ^^
February 25th, 2012, 10:33 am
Poor Atticus....Can't get a break...xD

Checking all my webcomics again and.... gods I play too much minecraft. The Boulder Badge there in the last panel looks like a diamond item from Minecraft. O.O'
February 25th, 2012, 2:16 pm
aha it's funny cuz he thought it was an actual gym for sports
February 25th, 2012, 3:43 pm
that gut in the top panel looks like me reeeeally likes that fence lol

February 25th, 2012, 4:05 pm
lot's of scratches and potions, that's the only way... that and only starting the gym when you've worked charmander up to lv.12

bahahahahahaaa that moment where all you've got is several useless bugs, a rat, a bird, an electric hamster thing and Charmander and Brock roflstomps you.

People worship first gen games now out of nostalgia, but they forget that those games were FREAKING HARD.

She knew. She always knew.
February 26th, 2012, 3:11 pm
The Bigger They Are.. @AndyDA: That's what made the old games so GOOD!!! The triumph after training all of your team members was great, despite getting your butt handed to you on a silver platter nearly a dozen times. That's what made every moment worthwhile. Now the games are waay too easy...
February 26th, 2012, 3:17 pm
Who REALLY is a workout kinda guy??

If they didn't make the badges necessary to progress, i probably wouldn't have got any until i had an elite level team.
February 26th, 2012, 8:25 pm
I don't even think it's gonna be brock there anymore if this is loosly following the anime.
February 26th, 2012, 8:39 pm
@ChaosSorceror Davidicus: Oh. My. Gosh.
I love you.
February 26th, 2012, 11:48 pm
@Guest: The teach butterfree confusion thing is viable in Red/Blue as well as Yellow, I've done it plenty of times.

Not that you have to do it, while both Geodude and Onix are resistant to fire, their special (defense) is so pitifully low any special-based attacks are more or less super effective against them, making fire attacks hit like regular ones. If you can manage to burn them it cuts there attack in half too, which is nice. Usually I got a Butterfree for this because I like type-matching and catching stuff with sleep though, realistically it's easier just to concentrate on leveling up charmander to take out Brock.

Beedrill actually hits Misty's Starmie harder than anything else avalible in the game if you can get it to 20 and give it Twinneedle too. The effort involved in putting up with it's worthless poison sting and fury attack to get it there is hardly worth the effort though, the only other thing it's good at is Erika's gym. Not sure why Beedrill was designed that way, if it learned Twinneedle at the same level Butterfree learns Confusion it would be useful for something beyond filling Poke'dex pages and lighting forests on fire.

I have a feeling if someone is going to take out Gym leaders in the smartest possible way it's going to be Atticus's rival, Kahn.

... He has a Pikachu too?? I may have to go back and re-read the comic. I totally forgot that. >_<
February 27th, 2012, 1:14 pm
I have to wonder if she actually knew about it. It seems like Atticus is the only Genre-savvy person here, really. I'm put in mind of a player who doesn't really want to play the game they're playing. Rather, who wants to obstinately refuse to do what the game wants you to do.
February 27th, 2012, 9:24 pm
@AlkseeyaKC: when did he catch a pikachu?
RoanHusky (Guest)
February 28th, 2012, 2:19 am

At the same time he met George. He caught the Pikachu she wanted.
Waddle Dee (Guest)
February 29th, 2012, 3:03 am
Well... ...she didn't say she DIDN'T know... >:D
March 1st, 2012, 10:29 am
Metal Claw Well his chances of winning r very slim unless DT somehow learns Metal claw during the fight then I can't see him winning
YAYY (Guest)
March 2nd, 2012, 1:44 am
EMBER ALL THE WAY!!!! My favorite Kanto starter was always Charmander. In the early games, there was no metal claw, so it was always EMBER, EMBER, and EMBER AGAIN!!!!

By the way, I still ain't sure of this: Is George a boy or a girl?
March 2nd, 2012, 4:55 am
? Did Atty ever name that pikachu he caught or are we just going with 'mousething', since that's the nickname most people seem to use in the comments?

:) I am a new reader. Just wanted to say love the comic. Do you update regularly? I know your OAQ said M and F but is that everyweek?
March 2nd, 2012, 2:35 pm
@Sky: Right now it's Fridays, since her school work has a big project for her. Normally she's pretty consistent with mon/fri updates.
March 3rd, 2012, 11:29 pm
Hooray for taking things out of context (1st panel)
