And Rocky training music...... BEGIN.

About the whole Rat's gender thing, and about how all female Pikachu's have a heart shaped end to their tail or something. To be honest, that was something I HAD heard, but totally forgotten about. Good job too cuz it practically offends me >.> All girls having heart tails, puh. I wouldn't take that as an indicator cuz no Pikachu is gunna have a heart tail on my watch.

By the way! If anyone's interested in my comic making process, you can find out a lil' about it here -

See y'all soon.

Charmander Charmander really needs to train hard if they want to catch up, epecially if they want to beat the first gym! As for DT being a girl, it sort of fits wih Atty :) Uhh... oh yeah, first

I wonder how long it takes for a single pidgey to recover from fainting in one patch of grass... Cuz that'll be the limiting factor in this training.
October 1st, 2012, 4:42 pm
IS he training the two of them against one another?

A female Charmeleon should be an interesting scene. Even the males don't listen, but a (respective) teenage girl?! Atty is gonna be in hell for a while.

Of course the obvious question arises, why not simply match your own pokémon against each other?

Ten Pokédollars says that Atticus at some point will do just that.

In the show, Ash trained his Pokes against one another too... Another thing that didn't get into the games. FYI: don't use your Pikachu's thunderbolt on your Pidgeotto. Does NOT create a super move combo. >_>
October 1st, 2012, 5:25 pm
I didn't notice it was heart shaped!! :O
Also, I wonder what she'll look like in her evolved form (and how she'll act). Is Brent going for Pikachu to evolve too? Does Pikachu need a thunder stone? Also is a Ponyta going to appear? :P *shutting up* XD

I have a feeling Atty's just standing there, judging them...
I like the bandage on Rat's ear, can that be a permanent accessory?

In regards to dragging people around with your legs: Harder than carrying someone, surprisingly. I can lift my sister and carry her around - admittedly, not very far, but I'm just weak. Dragging her around on my leg, though, is damn near impossible, if I'm going for the "one foot in front of the other" approach. Just drag them and your foot behind you. :P (Both of those experiences happened multiple times, and in the past. I didn't need to test it. :P)
So yeah, Atty's got good leg muscles. o.0
October 1st, 2012, 6:23 pm
LMAO is he having his pokemon at each other? XD

I like that last panel(s?). Nice poses.
I'm kinda curious as to why Atty didn't make much of a fuss about the genders or evolutions. Is there some kind of discussion supposed to have happened already during those pokeball breaks or does he just not care about it?

ya All right training time. "I got the eye of the tiger" :( ok not the best singer but Atty is better off with out a song anyway. or is he?

Im playing FireRed and i caught a Pikachu, guess what I named him?

Atty's Rat :D
October 1st, 2012, 9:01 pm
Eh, for someone George's size, he wouldn't need too very much lower body strength. It'd be worse for her, especially since Atty's going over rocks. :P

Love how Rat's ear is still bandaged. <3
October 1st, 2012, 9:15 pm
Loving how their attacks are coming out of the last panel. Simple yet nice looking effect.

I guess George's reluctance to stop being dragged over rocks as an indication that she likes it rough.
October 1st, 2012, 10:07 pm
I predict that Atty, (or Brent, whichever he prefers) will be hopelessly crushed a second time.

DT is such a little baws. Hang in there Rat. One day, you too shall....well, you might become half as cool.

Yeah... that is one of the best traning methods put your two pokemons to fight each other!! if it only would be possibly to do it in the videogame...
October 1st, 2012, 10:17 pm
@FormOf_SomeGuy: Sorry for me nerding out here but the games came way before the show.
October 1st, 2012, 10:45 pm
@Djoing: If there's no other Pokemon to train against, why not have them train vs. each other?

and why can't you do that in any of the games?

Ya know what makes me laugh? The thought of Atty letting both of them loose in that tiny bit of grass, DT explaining to Rat that they have to do this part on their own, DT and Rat just destroying all 5 wild pokemon there repeatedly...

George looks so comfortable being dragged around. I guess it's better than walking? :)
October 2nd, 2012, 1:18 am
I remember that patch of grass, rattatas up the wazoo and pidgys that sand attacked the shit outa you. That's where I traned to beat brock.

Ahhh... The ease of using Squirtle. DT and Rat have a lot of training needed to even hope to hurt that Onix.
October 2nd, 2012, 4:30 am
@Ponyta: Rat (pikachu) would need a thunder stone to evolve and I dont think you can get one in pewter city on red/blue/yellow

"A female Pikachu has a v-shaped "dent" at the end of its tail." It's not a heart.

Gender differences "A female Pikachu has a v-shaped "dent" at the end of its tail. Male Pikachu do not have this dent. However, both genders' tails resemble a lightning bolt, fitting their Electric typing. In Black and White, male Pikachu have less black covering their ear, though this is only shown in frontal sprites."
nothing about hearts here (bulbapedia), but no dent, therefore, it's a boy!

*raises hand* I have :D I've tried dragging someone across the floor with just my legs and boy is it tiring, it didn't help that it was my big sis mind you but still xD I managed to get her across my room and to the top of the stairs, she soon let go then xD
Anyways enough rambling, awesome comic, I checked out your working process of this on DA, I never realised how much work you get done in such a short time well done ^^

How did DT manage to take down a whole forest of Pokemon and not get serious EXP. Thats all I'm wondering.

Scary how George looks perfectly content snuggling against Atticus' leg...

@Anarchy: that's easy, it was indirect, therefore no mass experience gain. great comic like always, h0ly, keep them coming. :)

How does one donate if they're from Murrika? I see it's in pounds so there's not much I can do I don't think.
October 2nd, 2012, 5:21 pm
Actually Depending on the generation. Previous Generations had indicated the gender by a dent in the tail. Normally, when I draw it, it looks like a good bite out of it rather than a heart shape. I mean- Pikachu's are supposed to be an icon. Why not make it cool with the chip? I mean, with this one, do your own thing to make it female. To be honest, it looks more like it got attacked than a heart.

Hold on a sec... If DT burned down the whole forest then shouldn't he have a ton xp from all the fainted/burned to crisp pokemon he hurt?
October 3rd, 2012, 5:35 am
You know, I love how a lot of people are still using he when referring to DT. It will take some getting used to.

Also, I see a lot of talk about the burning of the forest and whether DT should be getting a ton of experience. I think in this case, they were not in any official battle for one, and DT was just sort of the puff of flame that set the fire off, they all died from it going out of control.

Personally, I don't think it has anything to do with experience points in this comic. I think it's being treated as real training, no level gain in the gaming sense. When they evolve, it is because they've matured in their skills and strength, and fought enough, to unlock further potential and growth. At least that's how I'm feeling...

I could be completely wrong and looking far too deeply into things.

Also, secret fangirl belief...Atty-kun is being watched from behind that wooden sign by Kahn as he trains. Oooooh yeeeaaah~
October 3rd, 2012, 9:12 am
I bet they destroy the small bit of forest too. Atticus/brent/whatever his REAL name is has a knack for that sort of destruction.
October 3rd, 2012, 1:09 pm
I really like this comic (:
It has an awesome plot and your art style is amazing *.*
keep it up, looking forward to the next page (:

Char, char, charmander? CHAR?!?!!?

Are they fighting each other... poor Pokémon.

I love this comic.
October 4th, 2012, 6:33 am
AW the forest!! That makes me sad!
Ha I've had to do it to my siblings in our younger days, however dragging a nearly full grown girl would be slightly more difficult!
Heart shaped tails! How lame!!!

See I always wanted to do some real training with my pokemon. I keep thinking about possibilities with augmented reality tech and it gets more awesome by the second.

Yesss! The dinky patch of grass! That's where I would exclusively train! Fuck going back into that forest!

In regards to the A/N, I'd like to also point out that the general "heart" used in modern-day cultural depictions is based off of the shape of the female rear when said female is bent over... Possibly even MORE offensive to women everywhere, taking that into account. XD

I just hate it when people see a female Pikachu and go all OMG PIKACHU'S TAIL! I mean seriously!? Haven't you ever seen a female Pika before?
