AIM THE SPRINKLERS RAT-THING!

Yeah, Double updates are nice. It's hard when you only update a page or two a week. I read a comic where two days have maybe passed maybe three but it's been updated in the span of a year. It's like, wow, it's not as long as I thought. Makes you appreciate Comic artists that update chapters weekly way more.

NO!! DON'T USE PIKACHU!! WHATEVER HAPPENED ON THAT EPISODE OF POKEMON WILL NOT WORK HERE!!!
He's probably gonna use his pikachu as a distraction and escape! Or throw a pokeball directly at that person's face then escape! :D Or just plainly use his pikachu and didn't know about the type disadvantage... Whatever, can't wait the see what happens next~!
Reply Red Spearow (Guest), 30 Jul 2012 05:46 pm
And then he grabs a pokeball...and runs away probably. Unless pikachu has iron tail, or Atty remembers the sprinkler system, this will not end well.
Reply Terminal Devastation, 30 Jul 2012 05:56 pm
Nah. Atty will use the pikachu, and then fail to deal any damage... but the resulting battle puts SOMEONE in danger, and Atty will prove he's man enough to save people... and thus get a temporary reprieve to go heal and get a rematch.
THIS IS IN PENCIL? Holy shit it looks inked! Did you invent some sort of inky pencil or was it witchcraft?

He's going to throw his pokeball... and try to catch onyx, not knowing that you're not allowed to do that.

Onix's eyes aren't made of stone, right?

I CHOOSE YOU!! PIKACHU! 8D
Reply Metalicar67, 30 Jul 2012 07:31 pm
Pikachu can work. I seriously beat Brock with just Charmander and Pikachu in RED version, so there was no Metal Claw or Iron Tail involved.

This can only end hilariously.
GO ELECTRIC RAT THING!
Screw the giant rock worm.
Reply nobodyhatesyou (Guest), 30 Jul 2012 10:46 pm
In the first panel I can't help but see Onix as a giant rock Snoopy... But he was combined with the evil beagle meme...
@Metalicar67: beat brock with just pikachu in yellow.

Dont tell me Pikachu is gonna use iron tail because he can't learn that on that situation xP, or maybe DT is gonna learn metal claw or evolving or something like that.
Reply DT_Fan (Guest), 31 Jul 2012 01:30 am
Yay! Hadn't seen DT in a while =) Even when not inked, he's still incredibly cute x3 Love the pose too, all spent like that. Why can't I pick him up and cuddle with him? D: He's so adorable.
fially he remembered other one xD
Reply Howard (Guest), 31 Jul 2012 05:15 am
Hey H0ly, fellow comic artist here - have you tried Palomino Blackwing pencils? It's the first pencil I've used that gives a solid enough line that it scans and corrects to black really well. I found it too late for the comic I do at the moment, but I'm thinking it'll be my weapon of choice for the next one.
The little rat thing's going to get completely destroyed.

Blind Earth Bender This whole Blind Rock-type Gym Leader is all very reminiscent of Toph from Avatar.
Reply VulpesOpaca, 31 Jul 2012 10:27 am
And then Atty uses Pikachu as a flash-bang to escape!
Reply Soul Moony, 31 Jul 2012 10:50 am
Oh god I hope he is thinking in Pikachu. And wow you really improve the use of pencil I mean this looks inked, Im wondering how much time those really black lines take? And how much pencil? xD

Rat thing he have the other rat thing than pikachu remember ?:D
Reply Rockman007, 31 Jul 2012 11:19 am
@godmoderncommander: yeah.. i think atty needs to google ' pokemon weakness chart'...
Reply Rockman007, 31 Jul 2012 11:22 am
oh dear.. so either his Chu is gonna by some 1 in 1,000,000 chance defeat the Onix. or hes gonna, instead of the jumper, offer it as a peace offering. or he will be horribly defeated and they will give him a gym badge, which will only make atty pissed off since he hates basically everything that happens in the show. i hope that one happens..
Reply Random Fan (Guest), 31 Jul 2012 12:51 pm
Wait! The last few pages... Are in pencil? O_o

Yeeeaah Pikachu Vs Onix? We know where this is going.
Reply Rockman007, 31 Jul 2012 12:58 pm
@Random Fan: yeah she said shes been trying them out i think? not sure if its because of price or pens vs pencils or trying a different medium.
Reply Jay (Guest), 31 Jul 2012 02:16 pm
@godmoderncommander: The awesome tail in the ground dodge? I want to see the pikachu try it but fail lol.
He's got that pikachu. And knowing him, he's too stupid to know electric pokemon are just about defenseless against rock/ground pokemon. So, unless he pulls an Ash move by using the water sprinklers, I think we're going to be seeing a dead pikachu real soon. ^__^`
Reply iMusicalMinji, 31 Jul 2012 04:47 pm
o.o/ Does Atty have a blister in the last panel or is that a glitch in the art?
Reply Quarg (Guest), 31 Jul 2012 05:19 pm
This is where Atty catches an Onix.
pfft, 'seeing-eye snake'! XD Hahaha. I'm glad the pokedex calls the onix a rock snake pokemon and not just a rock pokemon. Cuz then he'll be a seeing-eye rock instead! XD
Reply Timothy Wafflehanger (Guest), 31 Jul 2012 08:15 pm
NO If Atty loses his jumper, evil will spread! It's like Pandora's box!
Reply Connor (Guest), 31 Jul 2012 10:59 pm
Just to be fair maybe, just maybe, he won't use the onix.
Can a visually impaired person block a thrown pokeball? Methinks Atty's about to try a Team Rocket Tactic(©).
Reply interspark, 01 Aug 2012 06:24 am
PIKACHU TO THE RESCUE!!! heck, it worked in the manga!
Reply hellfire14, 01 Aug 2012 09:34 am
@Connor: Just as likely as a thunderbolt affecting an onix as it's a a ground type as well as rock type (Electricity being not being that effective against rock anyway and ground having no effect at all), but that worked in the anime.
Reply Rockman007, 01 Aug 2012 11:32 am
@Redrafter: hey thats a fantastic name!
Reply psychedashell, 01 Aug 2012 06:43 pm
He's going to try and catch the Onix, I bet he's completely forgotten about the zap-rat.
Reply +bird+ (Guest), 01 Aug 2012 06:50 pm
Black eye is definitely present! Also, DT looks adorably pooped out. So, Atty has another pokemon: GREAT. However, he has never battled with it before so we might end up with the same troubles he had when he was trying (and failing in his ignorance) to communicate his demands to DT in the beginning. Not to mention it's probably the pikachu everyone was talking about. Any more words of wisdom George? :]
I'm not actually sure I'm observant enough to notice the difference without it being pointed out... I really enjoy the comic either way. hmmm... I might have voted wrong.
Reply YAYY (Guest), 02 Aug 2012 06:58 am
He realized he had one more pokemon: Pikachu. He didn't realize that electric type pokemon have a huge disadvantage against rock type pokemons.
And we finally have a good excuse for a gym leader with less pokemon than almost every normal trainer after the first tenth of the game. What else is a blind guy suposed to hit with a pokeball?

@AngelicLily: go for the sprinkler system!
Reply Lockmaster24 (Guest), 03 Aug 2012 01:08 pm
Actually, Electric types have no disadvantage to rock types what-so-ever, ground types on the other hand they can't touch, pity Onix is a Rock/Ground type.

Aww... Dragon Thing looks all dead and stuff... But anyway, no new comic today or am i just being impatient? :)
Reply Buri (Guest), 03 Aug 2012 03:03 pm
You know, he hasn't taken that jumper off since he started out. Bet the guy saying its pandora's box is right.. the evil will spread. Bet its an odorous evil too!
...that's one big pokemon.
Reply lolstep (Guest), 05 Aug 2012 09:49 pm
blind eyes Well technically, onix is made out of rock and if it was blind then it could sense stuff using the ground, kind of like Toph from Avatar, so you could have made the eyes white :P
