Oh my, what's this?

So... It turns out that with my new work system, it MIGHT, strangely, be faster for me to go back to inking Mokepon pages. For a while anyway. Still with two a week though, I mean. I'm not too worried about consistancy of my method, not with this comic. My biggest concern is, as a whole, getting the most and best work outta myself that I can. Sooo let's just take things as they come.

As a few of you have said, to anyone saying that Atty should just catch a Mankey, or have DT learn Metal Claw, you guys SERIOUSLY gotta go play Pokemon Red xD

Oh and. Probably goes without saying but, if it isn't obvious what she's shouting about, it soon will be.

See y'all soon.

I was about to suggest catch a Nidoran (back on route 22 by Viridian city) cause they can learn double kick but nope, they only learn it early in Yellow, Blue and Red have to wait till like, level 40-somthin for that. :| Nevermind.

Evolution And I think Our little Atticus will argue how "Thats not how evolution works". Since pokemon's -evolution- is more like a growth cycle then any evolution. All Pokemon have preset paths, ergo, growth cycle.

But wait H0ly! What about the Feraligatr? Thats a gen two! Tut tut!

... I don't recall if they had Metal Claw in Gen 2, or if the Char family can learn it at that time. But there is at least a possibility. If I wasn't so lazy, I could go look it up, but eh. I am so lazy.

Speaking of metal... Atticus should have an Alakazam... and a Magneton, because they are cool. And I bet fun to draw too!

@KisuRedmage: There are more than just exceptions. The majority of girls that I know (I know only ONE girl who likes Jigglypuff, and I don't even know why cause that girl hates all things cute and pink) hate the stupid tiny Pokemon. They go for Typhlosion and Salamence and Onix. The more hardcore and deadly they look, the more my friends and I want it.

That aside... George, why you freaking out? If it's about Pikachu evolving don't worry. It's cute now, but not only will it get tougher, but it will get cuter when it evolves. And really, Charmander may no longer be cute, but you can't deny the awesomeness that awaits our adorable little DT.

Go, Atty, go.

Charmeleon. Ember spam. Worked for me, more than once :P Charmander was my favorite starter in blue/red. I usually won that way, or by also having a pidgey abuse sand-attack. Also, against Brock bide is easy to abuse; don't know if Stein has a signature move.

Oh, I just realized my mistake. The Mankey can be caught in pokemon Yellow, which I've beaten least year, so I thought you could do it on all the 1st gen games. It seems you can't do it in red and blue, and Atty is obviously not playing yellow, or he wouldn't have caught a pikachu in the forest.

Also, Nidoran only learns Double Kick in yellow too, so Atticus is pretty much screwed. Unless he catches a Butefree, assuming he wants to train bugs, and that he can catch one in the forest he just burned.

ANYWAY, WHAT KIND OF BROKEN GAME IS THAT?

I think when I first played Red, many years ago, I used my charmander (and lots of potions) to beat the gym. If DT can beat a Sandslash, he is petty strong. But that Onix looks too overpowered, so I don't know. I guess evolution is the only option...

@Caio: I just evolved my Charmander before taking on the Pewter gym. When I started I think I just took the view that I'd hang around in the grass until I needed to go to the pokecenter, which meant I'd quickly out-level everything.

@Guest and other Raichu fans: You don't want to evolve Pikachu yet. It's got Thundershock and Growl, and if you evolve it, it won't learn any new moves from leveling. You at least wait until 26 to get Quick Attack and Swift, but I'd wait till 43 to get Thunder. :/

I've been playing Pokemon Fire Red with Charmander as my starter so I know what you mean about Mankey and Metal Claw. Those were never in Red and Blue :D. I chose Squirtle in Blue so i don't know how Atty is gonna beat Stein. Also, don't evolve Pikachu Atty! Nevermind the cuteness, but Raichu doesn't learn any moves. Pure uselessness.

Evolving DT bad? I say evolve cute little DT! :D I'm a Charizard lover. Can't wait to see your artwork of DT as a Charizard, H0ly!

Also, in regards to the whole 'girls liking cute Pokemon' I really don't care either way. Yes, I adore some of the cute ones (Charmander, Surskit, Horsea, just to name a few.) but I have three teams that I use moreover for battling; cute ones work well in my rare contest endeavors. I'm sure most girls in my area would enjoy a cuter team overall, but I'm one of those girls that have a team full of brawlers instead. Haha. I go for the Dragon, Steel, Ghost and Electric types personally.
