Hallo there. This is H0ly speaking to you from the past with a preset update. I'm currently away for two weeks, and if next weeks update isn't on the friday, it should only be a day later or so =)
I am hereby predicting a plot twist for later in the comic.

Called it!!! Poor DT, I predict some painful cuts...
Awesome Sandslash drawing. <3
Reply ShadowScipio (Guest), 11 May 2012 05:29 pm
Oh man, I'm not sure DT can handle that Sandslash. Maybe he'll evolve to Charmeleon to compensate?
Reply SuddenlyaPanda (Guest), 11 May 2012 05:31 pm
Bummer... I guessed a Krabby, thinking we'd learn a valuable lesson about type match-ups - along with getting to see Atticus' pikachu maybe. =/
Oh Boy! Dragonthing has got a little problem on his hands!

I was close! I predicted Sandshrew!
Atty has to win to leave town. Forest pokemon are gone. First gym leader has at most one more pokemon (onyx for the easy win). DT would have to win this for story reasons except H0ly is a pokemon sadist, so the rest of this chapter should be quite interesting.

Guessed it! Yep, it had to be! :D but I still rooting for DT! Can't wait for the next, just have to see! (don't ask, I just felt rhyme-y) :'3

@CactusJuicy: "artistic vision".... And there are WAY too many 'the mouse pokemon' as it is..... Sandslash has always been a hedgehog in my book....
Reply undeadoranges (Guest), 11 May 2012 08:37 pm
Out of curiosity, do hedgehogs exist in the Pokemon universe? *is ignorant of Pokemon but enjoys the comic nonetheless*
POKEMON JESUS WHY!?!!?
I've always wanted to train a Sandslash. Right up there with Marowak, Beedrill, and Leafeon and Glaceon.
Reply Sandslash Trainer (Guest), 11 May 2012 09:28 pm
@Lockman: I once did. Had a level 100 Sandslash in my Sapphire game. His best attack was "Slash". But it was a one-hit K.O. Interestingly enough, it was the only time where I had the patience to train a poke to level 100.
Reply ScarfNinja, 11 May 2012 09:35 pm
After seeing Diglett I was honestly expecting a Sandshrew, so I'm pleased as punch to see a Sandslash, definitely my second favorite pokemon to Eevee
I'm impressed he can shout "Not now!" with his lips closed and a cigarette :P
@Djoing: Yes good.

@Frappecinno: It's actually based on a pangolin, not a hedgehog.

Actually, sandslashes are based off of pangolins (Which are cuties!)

Isn't this Gym meant to have Rock Pokemon?
Pokésadistary! I predict some glass will be made next comic and Sandslash will splat right into it.
Reply Hurricane_Scrambles (Guest), 12 May 2012 02:37 am
Should have guess from "slasher". Sandslash looks awesome here, and while I've never had a particular use for it, I do love the design.
Makes you woder if the actual Pokedex has a silence button.
Reply DT_Fan (Guest), 12 May 2012 03:13 am
Nngh! I feel so sorry for DT in that fourth panel... He looks so cute and helpless... I just love how this comic can make me feel both happy and sad at the same time :P great work. I'm guessing you probably won't read this message (or at least not anytime soon), but still, here's hoping DT stays a cute charmander for a bit longer (even if Serialslasher does burn his eyes out xD). But yeah, I'm rooting for DT :3

@CactusJuicy: Check the mouseover text. (move your pointer over the comic, words pop up)
Reply justanotherfangirl, 12 May 2012 06:34 am
@undeadoranges: The question of whether or not actual animals exist in the Pokemon universe is an interesting one, sadly under-explored. How can you have mouse pokemon without mice, snake pokemon without snakes, etc?
it makes perfect sense because pokemon are the animals themselves in that world. they are just more evolved than the animal's in our world. though i think there might be some animals in pokemon special... i am not sure. though this brings the question of what the pokemon world's definition of animal cruelty is...

I don't think atty needs a pokedex, he has a human pokedex right there!!!
Reply luinwe (Guest), 12 May 2012 07:05 am
so DT is a bit tired maybe during the wild bit with George in showing Atty around he picked up a potion or something to help out DT a bit more.
Reply interspark, 12 May 2012 07:57 am
given the choice between a pokedex and george, i'd pick george any day ^_^
Reply undeadoranges (Guest), 12 May 2012 08:57 am
@justanotherfangirl: I like to imagine that the characters don't actually know what regular animals are.

Who needs a pokedex when you have George?

Sandslash in the first gym? o.o The difficulty is racking up...
Reply BreakerLOLZ, 12 May 2012 12:39 pm
Sandslash is actually designed more after the pangolin than it is a hedgehog.
@BreakerLOLZ: Normally I find those things adorable...but that picture scared me a little :'D.

Gym Leader Derp!
"Oh noes, my Diglett was defeated because even tho I used Sand Attack to lower it's accuracy, it's trainer could still tell it where to aim. Go Sandslash, use Sand Attack!"
Awesome story ths is a great story. atticus is super sexy and i love your art.

THAT is one cool looking Sandslash :3

Not Dragonthing! Whhyyyyy?!
Reply Red (Guest), 15 May 2012 02:44 am
@Deoxys112: Unless Serialslasher doesn't have any ground-type moves. Back in the original game, Sandslash couldn't learn any naturally, and Holy has been doing this story mostly by the book.
Reply Rawr (Guest), 15 May 2012 11:22 am
so, if Holy is keeping to the game which so far i'm seeing that's the case (well, loosely anyway)
Reply RebelPhoenix (Guest), 15 May 2012 11:48 am
That is the most beautiful sandslash i have ever seen o.o

Oh my god... this comic... never ending awesome. I love Atticus SO. HARD. He's amazing. And realistic. But I want to know what his big dream from last chapter was D:

Burn that lizard's eye out! That's right! You have deadly quills and claws, but ignore that, just use SAND-ATTACK!!!!

Is George the equivalent of Rui from Pokemon Colosseum? LOL XD I've been reading this since the beginning and haven't posted at all. So I figured why not :D Also, that isn't the leader is it?

Who needs a Pokedex when you have george personally I'd rather have a Pokedex at least you can switch it off xD
Reply Captain LeBubbles, 18 May 2012 08:51 pm
@undeadoranges: I would imagine that those are just classification groups rather than actual animals. (Sort of like how 'snake' refers to the group of slithery scaly critters rather than any one individual critter). Snake, mouse, etc = serpentes, mus, etc.
