Howdy ho folks! Did you wonder how he was going to be persuaded into doing this xD? I did for about... Ten seconds.

Yeah it's the end of the month... But I'm afraid I have a little more bad news. My uni work load hasn't lightened at all after this deadline, it's increased. Being our last couple of months they wanna end on a bang. But I'm going to keep working to update weekly... Sorry there won't be Monday updates for a while. But I'll try cook up something special for next Friday.

If you happened to be interested in what I'm up to and such, I'm still at it on Twitter =) https://twitter.com/#!/H0lyhandgrenade

See y'all soon.

@Pharaoh Man: Pish posh. I've beaten Brock many times using only a level 14 Charmander's Ember. The first time I played the game I ended up KO'ing Onix with a Metapod's Struggle attack.

Even when you know you got soemwhere before your rival, he's always managed to get past you and win the next badge. I hate that part of the games.

i was kinda hoping that atticus' motivation would be seeing kahn walk out of the gym like a boss.

atticus would get jealous and go in. i love rivalries.

Also, wonder how Atty is going to pull this off? I remember the first few badges being a war of attrition during my Charmander play through (Scratch and Leer, baby), with a particularly harrowing Mt. Moon trip in between... seriously, f*ck Zubat.

Argh, I was always pissed off at the fact your rival always inexplicably gets there before you do. And every time I beat him... I always have that tiny glimpse of hope that maybe... just maybe... I'll be first next time... Pokemon League Elite Four-- in your face! Hah! XD

About voting... Okay, I laughed when I saw it. Your TWC vote images are both image shack stock images complaining that "This domain violates ImageShack's ToS." The voting still works, mind you, but considering on that page was a character identification test by the name of "Shota", I laughed.

A Wild Name Appeared! If you are able to read top halves of words like me, the name under Kahn Miles says "Geoff", what Atticus claimed his middle name was at the Q&A. This can only mean one thing: his middle name budded off of him and grew into a person, then battled the Gym Leader and won! Oh, and Atticus, remember that in the Rock Gym that you can easily pass all of the trainers. There's a way to not get spotted. Don't fight the crazy people!!!
