So there's your answer xD They're in a relationship. Don't start fretting on me now- She's older than she acts.

Was kind enough to knock some of the dirt off Atty. Pity, I quite liked his hair like that...

Small panels are harder to do with pencils. I should stop trying to squeeze so many in, or hope that these thinner pencil leads I've ordered will help. Let's see, ay? Still early days.

See y'all soon.

EDIT: Oh! And I was interviewed on the Official Smackjeeves podcast! Check it out here if you're interested- http://smackcast.smackjeeves.com/comics/1540511/smack-cast-03-h0lyhandgrenade/ Warning- I sound weird. And British.

Anyone else expecting this Pikachu to go the way of DT's Caterpie's? Thinking flattened and squished right into the gym floor.

For the love of god don't tell me his Pikachu going to pull an Ash's gameshark move. Do he even remember that he have a Pikachu? (Though it shall be useless regardless.)

Edit: Then again knowing his luck so far when it come to battles I think his Pikachu might know surf.

This is rude of me but I would like to request that you ink your penciled pages one day. The reason is because I like your inked ones better.

I agree @Rude Man: I prefer the inked pages as well :( That's what I voted for on the poll, but it looks like the penciled pages won out. People apparently want quantity over quality

Dragonthing wants to learn Protect my jumper from this rock head but Dragonthing already knows 4 moves! Should a move be forgotten to make space for Protect my jumper from this rock head?

Hey, super love the comic! I always get this super huge grin whenever I see you in my RSS feed.
One suggestion for this page, though, I think that the fourth panel (with Elle and Stein) would read way better if it was first. The break in the conversation topic is a touch disorienting.
Keep up the good work! <3

Your panelling confuses me on this page. I first read them:

1-4-2-3-5-8-6-7-9

Huh.... come to think of it, has George showed any pokemon? If two team <insert team name of choice here> grunts can have a double battle with you, it stands to reason that Atty could get a little help.

I don't know why, but it makes me super-happy that they're a couple. That said, I still hope DT brings 'em down! ;)

Ah, so he was grabing her ass in the last page. It was probably the jumper that threw me. (Her's, not sandslash's.)

I'll combine Guest in post 3's prediction with Zelkova's point and assume after the splat Atty's ditto will dig onyx to death. Followed immediately by hundreds of posts asking for it to transform into DT.

@Fictive What's wrong with the quality? Besides which, this is a web comic. With a script. Quantity=story progression.

Ahh... The penciled pages allow me to enjoy MORE Mokepon that still looks just as good, just not dark. I love it so.

And, I absolutely love this Gym Leader. He looks AWESOME, and I love that he seems like a tough sweetheart, considering this Elle relationship business. (Don't ask me why, but the fact that this little mostly whiny girl is in a relationship with this BA awesome man makes me laugh. I love the relationship, it's hilarious, it brightens my day, and somehow it seems so oddly... right.) I love it so. At first I thought it was going to be this guy with his really obnoxious apprentice, but this! So much better.

And you know, Atty, if DT learns metal claw super quick then you can keep your jumper. Which I hope happens, because the jumper adds a goofiness to your otherwise sour and pessimistic (yet still hilarious) manner.

I love this comic, in case my long response wasn't enough for you.

So this gym leader wont even give him a chance to heal dragonthing? Thats way worse than what made feraligatr guy angry.

@Fictive: I see your point but the great thing about the artist is her pencilled comics are of such a nice and enjoyable looking quality thats its nice to be able to see the pages come up twice a week. I went for Pencil over Ink simply because her art is neat and tidy enough in pencil form to appear with a high enough quality. Pencil can also look as nice as ink sometimes, appears so here as well.

George, you really should let Atty go heal his Pokemon first... all he has is Dragonthing (who's all beat up) and a Pikachu (who will be useless).

I predict Atty will pull out a rifle and start shooting everyone, including dragonthing. Sure it's just MY GUESS, but it's almost guaranteed if you ask me. You don't mess with a guy's jumper and get away with it.

wow... now that you have specified the girl is both older than she looks/acts and romantically involved with the gym leader I seem to feel an actual disgust for the character. interesting that such metadata has that much effect...

Ho ho! Nothing wrong with sounding British my dear! Jolly good show on the page I dare say! Although seeing those two 'together' puts me in a spot of bother! I can't help but view the young lady as a... well a child! Not entirely sure why I come to that conclusion by there you have it!

To conclude, wonderful page old sport! Tará for now chap!

If that Onix is same as Brock's in anime, it will lose to pikachu's thundershock. Then Atty might have a change.

I was a bit confused on the panels too but I got it. 9 panels is a lot. X_x;
A comic artist told me once you should stick to around 6 panels.

H0ly, I have a suggestion. How about making extra comics from donations inked, whilst continuing to have the regular ones pencilled?

Pikachu. They are adorable together, truly they are. And I understand about smaller panels with pencil are hard but the smaller lead might cause some -extreme- frustration if you aren't used to delicately soft strokes. They tend to break really easy ;(

Haha, now I'm imagining Elle and Stein as one of those foolish lovey-dovey couples. But Stein doesn't quite fit the bill. Fight for your pride, Atty! And your jumper!
