"Oh God please don't let the last thing I see before I die be you screaming at me."

Well here we are again! It's always such a pleasure. Finishing another chapter... Coming up to number 6. Who'da thunk. Thankyou for sticking with me so far!

This may seem a pretty abrupt end to the chapter... For probably obvious reasons. If it's not clear what's happening here, it very soon will be.

I'm really looking forward to this next chapter xD There should be a lot revealed, I guess? There might be a mild delay before I come to it, just while I get a few things in order, but not a long wait at all I don't think. I hope you'll enjoy the next one =)

And then Atty wakes up at home and the battle with Stein never happened, but he did lose half his money and his Jumper.

He will remember beating the gym leader Elle and won't quite understand how he came back home.

He won't have the badge and will think he hasn't gotten his reward.

The NPC George is still at the gym.



Alternative ending:
He wakes up at home. It was all a dream. End of comic.

Atty has ran out of Pokémon! Atty whited out. Lost one jumper.

Atty really is destined to be a Pokemon master, noone else faints randomly just because they lose a battle!

Brent whited out!

But no, seriously, if he didn't just suffer from an anxiety attack of some sort then he has the patience of a deity. From all that he has had to experience in a short expanse of time, I personally would have had a panic attack by now.

They seem concerned I don't think Atty is reacting how they would expect him to, considering the looks on their faces. I wonder what's up. Maybe all that chain smoking finally lead to a heart attack?

Wait, what? I never got why you blacked out after you lost a fight. Maybe he's in shock from seeing Dragonthing get crushed by a giant rock snake? *shrug* I feel bad for Atty, but he was kind of a dumbass for going into a battle with two untrained pokemon and no items.

He's either going to pass out or go hulk on us all. Probably passed out though. The game says 'RED whited out' or something like that, right? (depending on what your name is, or is it YOU whited out?) It used to be blacked out, though, I swear.

I mean I never understood why you blacked out after losing a battle either. My brother just got his first Pokemon game a while ago and asked me why. I had never really thought about it. It's just one of those things you accept as true and don't question.

I guess they've never met a player character before, if he was an npc he'd just stand in that area for the rest of his life.

I wonder if he will black out every time he loses, or if this is just a one time joke =p

Well This Sucks This sucks Now I have to sit through Another Chapter with the same gym and the same Gym Leader. well maybe George will actually help Atty this like a real friend and at least give him a hint on what to do to win. Man and Atty is going to be all moody about losing which will that up like 3 pages and then train maybe catch another pokemon, and finally have a rematch maybe get his jumper back. so by spring of next year we might be on a new chapter where he's finally going to MT. Moon. Man If this wasn't the best Comic that I've read then I would rage quit right now flipping my desk screaming no!no!no!no! and what not. But again this is a great comic!! :)

I always thought you blacked out because the opponent's pokemon attacked you once you had no pokemon to defend yourself with thus causing you to pass out.

I might have been slightly twisted as a child.

Also, Metal Gear Solid reference ftw

This is why you white out(or black out) after losing a battle: most of the time you're in the wild and if you had to walk back to a poke centre you'd be unable to attack the wild pokemon or defend yourself against them. So the game conveniently transports you to the nearest one to avoid this situation.

And I assume this is what happened to Atty XD

Since I imagine the crazy "Have you seen the gym yet?" is still by the route to mt moon, it's time for the training montage. And we hopefully get a real one of him getting better and his pokemon stronger, I doubt H0ly will gave him pull some ash-esque one off BS stunts to win. I mean, he's already been cast as Gary MF Oak when he was facing Kahn XD.

Poor Atty... Man, he must really like that jumper. He sends a electric rat and a fire breathing lizard just to defend it and now that he lost it, he faints like a 1920's gentleman after seeing a most unorthodox occurrence.
Wonder how he would react to losing his cigarettes...

Agreement @darkauras: You know, I thought so too. But that wouldn't explain if you lost to really nice person.
. . . Thinking about it, anyone you defeated never blacked/whited out either. SO, maybe the player is just prone to random faints that ironically occur after being defeated?
I don't know. This doesn't happen in Ranger, Conquest, or any other spin-off either.

Atticus whited out! (Remember, he ran into a Feraligatr, so it is at least Gen 2, and in Gen 2, you don't black out, you white out... for some reason.... or do I have that mixed up?)

Anywho, you have REALLY been churning these things out, H0ly! Greatly impressed! Usually this is one of my more slow progressing comics, waiting a week or so for one.

If he is blacking/whiting/graying out why is he? I never understood that? Is there some sort of kinetic link between trainer and pokemon? Having all pokemon on hand makes you faint as well? If so, the reason you wake up in the pokemon center is because your pokemon are all healed, thus you are healed? I would HATE to be a pokemon trainer if that were the case. Either way, Atticus needs more pokemon, and at higher levels.
Catch that Rattata, Atticus! It will give you power! HYPER FANG THINGS!

Blacking out @ChaosSorceror Davidicus: my theory as a kid was that the last attack of the opposing pokemon hits you as well, while your last pokemon falls to the ground fainting, causing you to faint too. ^^

At first, I didn't know what was going on. I thought the jumper was important to Atticus, so he'd resort to dumping water on Onyx or punching the crap out of the Gym Leader to keep it or somesuch.
I did not expect this. At all.
He LITERALLY blacked/whited out! This is so awesome! Did NOT see that coming! I can't wait for the next one to find out why!

How to Die in Pokémon In Pokémpn, whenever you lose all of your Pokémon, you "white out". I always found this really stupid, especially in the Pokémon League. When fighting the Elite Four, I only won in Pearl and Platinum because I imported a cloned (from Emerald) level 100 Charizard, Mewtwo, Tyranitar, Celebi, and Blastoise. When I played Heartgold, I got bored and forgot about it. While playing White, however, I could NEVER beat them. I then accidentally left my DS in Boston. Yay closure!
