Step back George HE'S GOING HULK!!!

Yeah... Dodge it ='D Not this time I'm afraid. This battle fully replicates what happened when I first went to Pewter Gym. This comic is largely about my recollection of the game when I first played it and had no clue about Pokemon, afterall... With a great degree of artistic license of course.

See y'all soon.

I'm quite sure that in the last panel, Atticus is freaking out over potentially losing his sweater, but...

It was really cute that he's actually starting to show concern for his charmander.

That's why I <3 panel two.

Aw, poor DragonThing.
Hes now road kill. :(

I feel like Atty should be his own pokemon and throw a bucket of water on the Onix, or something. :P

Everyone keeps saying he's going to white out.
Am I the only one who remembers it was called blacking out back in the old days of red and blue? D:
("Red/Blue is out of useable Pokemon. Red/Blue blacked out!")

... Please tell me I'm not the only one who remembers this. I'm starting to feel like a nerd. .__.'''';

@Sappire: ya i remember red/blue saying blacked out. its weird how they changed it though. i think blacked out sounded more normal.
and holy how does your sister think that stein looks like a lion king lion? unless shes referring to scar because they both have scars

DT... :( Aw, I was hoping for a bit more punishme... I mean, a bit more of a fight D: Even though the pose looks cute in that panel, I can't help but feel sad for him :( That hole does look painful. And Atty still doesn't convince me he's actually concerned about DT in that second panel more than he's worried for his loss/jumper.

Also... is that DT's spine showing along his back where the hole is? It kinda creeps me out a bit...

@Lockman: I 3rd That!! I can't believe we are going to have to set through another long Rock Gym Battle. This is all George's fault for dragging him in to it and not informing him on rock and ground pokemon and how mis matched his pokemon are to them. so ya Atty put out your cigarette in Onix's eye and while your at it kick the leader in the balls and slap that Girl and walk out like a man. You don't need that badge there's more gyms then 8 after all Gary had 10.

Double fatality... Yeesh... And it only gets worse from here, because now Atty gets to go through the dread 'forced level grind' session...

Seriously, Atty's boned himself quite soundly at this point. His current team type match-up is evidently not working, and his options for getting other pokemon include pidgey (just as bad) rattata (not much better) and a pile of burned bug bits... (I always opted to grind for a butterfree in veridian forest, regardless of starter poke.) Add spearow (flyer vs rock again) and the nidorans... and mankey if this is yellow version... and any water types that may jump out due to 'artistic liberties'...

Good luck Atty! Maybe George will avenge thee? >_>

@Lockman: I disagree, I think he should use it to reignite Charmander's tail... o_O

I like that Atty has come so far in just one day. Maybe he still dislikes Kahn for being too goody-goody, was unfazed when Rat got flattened, and he still only (barley) tolerates George, but he already cares about DT.

I sort of thought maybe that's where his character was going- that he'd always be a cranky guy, but his Dragonthing would the one creature who he liked and could tolerate.

Makes u wonder why Nintendo does this in the very beginning. I mean, what, they want to troll the little kids who play this. I got my satisfaction later either drowning the onix with bubbles or training charmander so much he could stop Thwap attack with his pinky...

But when I was younger, this stage made me cry so much.

EDIT: Those eeeeeyes.... those souless, uncaring, eeeeeeyes....

Well, this gym can't be as bad as the water one will be at least. I had to battle Misty a few billion times because her Starmie could beat anything it wanted, regardless of the type because it was evil.

Atty is out of usable pokemon! Atty whited out! Atty: *wakes up in pokemon centre*" Ouch, what happened?" *checks his belongings, notices that his jumper and half his money is missing* "What the hell? That guy stole my stuff while I was unconscious, that was my cigarette money! why didn't you stop him George?"
George: I couldn't it's the rules.

Wait a minute... if Dragonthing can still move, you still have a usable pokemon, however much of a pancake it is. Yeah. If I were Atticus, I'd be PISSED. Actually, if this were me, I'd either reset the game (With a save, of course!) or keep going back in my savestates until I find one where I stand a chance.

Atty without his jumper... *Atty in a T-shirt? Perhaps showing off his awesome new toned chest from all that running in Viridian? (owo)* Erm...yeah, still not the same Atty.

Still going for the "pissed off Atticus used Pidpid!" "HEY! YOU CAN'T DO THAT!" "Screw the rules, THIS IS MY JUMPER!" approach.

Psh, first gym leader The first time I played pokemon I walked around for hours in the grass. NOt sure why, possibly because I didn't have anything better to do. Point is, It's actually hard to lose to him when you're pokemon are level 20.

I no longer have the patience to grind like that...

Originally it was Blacked out,
But in Gen 2 and 3 it was changed to Whited out.
Then back to Blacked out in Gen 4 and onwards.

Go figure.

Trying to remember... did Atty actually stop at a pokemon center? I once had the misfortune to not and upon being brutally slaughtered at the first gym, was sent back to Pallet. If that happened to Atticus, that would be histerical!
