DORK RAGEEEE!!! ...That's one way to shut her up.

Eheh... I was a lil' apprehensive about this page? Which is silly, because this is hardly a kiddy comic. I guess I'm just not used to Atticus swearing much myself- It's not something he does often. Sometimes I hear this comic described as 'Pokemon but with swearing'. Which I find kinda odd, since Thad's the only guy who really swears like a trooper xD

Every guy has his breaking point and this was Atty's. Shouldn't relentlessly poke two sensitive topics at once...

See y'all soon.

also, I totally don't blame atty for snapping. she's been working his nerves for so long, I' m surprised he didn't yell sooner.
January 7th, 2013, 5:13 pm
If I were him I would have slapped her...
Atty needs to let off some some steam sometimes... and find another jumper.

On a totally unrelated note, is his father still around? It always bothered me how you never met your father once in the games, besides ruby/sapphire/emerald where the father is a gym leader...

I didn't know people still use the word emo. :I

I wonder if George would say this to men getting married. "u so emo 4 wearing all black."

How about "Screamo"?

that totally came out emo

@The_mad_one: Well, they ARE getting married. If they're not emo now, they will be once they're 40.

January 7th, 2013, 6:00 pm
people most defiantly still use emo. All through high school i got called it because i liked goth clothes...

but doesn't it make you wonder...was this just his breaking point or did George hit a nerve dealing with people calling him emo in the past...
January 7th, 2013, 6:07 pm
@l: Waaay back, I don't know what page or chapter, Team Rocket made an intro into this comic and Thad was the male TR member, basically the James versain of this comic (but without the looks and personality. Just the spot in his career)
They were both pottymouths xD

Swearing is a form of expression that goes beyond politeness to make a point. Like all forms of speech it has a time and a place. When somebody calls you an emo they've just created that time and place

George will cry in the next page =P
January 7th, 2013, 6:30 pm


Well... That escalated quickly.
January 7th, 2013, 6:32 pm
I don't know if she's shocked at him yelling at her, or if she just noticed, he's wearing glasses.
January 7th, 2013, 6:33 pm
To be perfectly honest, George is one of those people I'd punch in the face, then avoid like a plague x x; personal childhood traumas aside, I am in serious love with this comic. <3

Geez George, you haven't said much about yourself either. Besides, he does not have emo hair, thus he is not completely emo.

Seriously, George just speaks without thinking. I don't even think Atticus is yelling because he's offended but just annoyed by her dumb, childish, niave remarks.

Edit: Added on by the facts that within only three or four days, Atticus has been thrown out of his home by his own mom, forced into something he finds no interest in, upstaged by his rival, nearly fell off a cliff, upstaged again, ran into annoying fan-girl, was held at gunpoint, then chased by killer bugs, then killed a bunch of innocent animals, beaten up, and now robbed of his clothes and half his money. Can't blame him for being pissed.

emo ... and his hair has the 'Sausgay' chicken/duck butt thing going on. Tho if they'd used more 'real hair' designs in Naruto it probably wouldn't have become such a noticable thing. I mean how do you avoid that with short hair styles?
January 7th, 2013, 7:42 pm
wow... not to self...... never steal atticus' jumper....
January 7th, 2013, 7:46 pm
Clue-by-four, she needs to get hit with it.
Actually, most of the people Atty deals with needs a good beating with one.

Atticus is totally a wife beater.
January 7th, 2013, 10:38 pm
Finally she needed to shut up.

Maybe, Atty is an introvert, you know, doesn't have a need to talk all the time, endlessly, unstopping... come to think of it those two make an odd pair.

Atty's definitely an introvert, so I can see him getting annoyed. Also, George is really cute when she takes her hood off.
January 7th, 2013, 11:30 pm

We need to turn that into a meme yesterday!

He'll be in an even worse mood when he realizes the cigarette that flew out of his mouth has fallen on his shirt and burned a hole in it.

So sensitive, Atty./
January 8th, 2013, 6:06 am
If the hoody fits...
January 8th, 2013, 9:11 am
Understandable i can understand that, i'm not used to putting in cursing in my comic, unless the character curses a lot

Emo's definitely Shout. on the scale of Goth - Emo, 1 being Goth and 10 being Emo, im probably a 7 and i Dork Rage all the time.
Also, look at Atty in the second panel. He's clearly Emo, he's probably drawing or writing some soppy poetry. thats why he Dork raged, emotional childhood trauma from being called Emo too much =O

The last panel is so adorable! X3 George looks so cute!
And atty up there in da corner looks like he's making kissy lips. X33
January 8th, 2013, 2:11 pm
Actually, I like it.
Shows that he has a breaking point. Just more pieces to the Atty puzzle.~
January 8th, 2013, 3:48 pm
Holy snap, Atty's angry. :U

Wow, this comic just gets better! XD I think you may be the best nuzlocke comic ever made, IMO it's surpassed even Landwalker's comics!
January 8th, 2013, 4:59 pm
@Meta-Akira: ohhhhh he atty said a bad word

George's face while calling him emo . . . priceless.

Atty's reaction to being called emo . . . not unexpected.
January 8th, 2013, 7:33 pm
@HeroesAndCons: this isn't a nuzlocke comic.

This is one of my longest running comics that I regularly check up on. The story is fun and wonderfully dark and twisted. It's honestly how pokemon should have ended up but for whatever reason, the producers decided against it so bummer for them; they ditched their loyal fanbase in favor of selling out. You on the other hand have done a great job of tuning this for your more adult readers and have stuck this right where the original fanbase' maturity levels are situated. Thank you.
I also absolutely LOVE Atty with glasses, it's so wonderful. I really like how he has a tipping point too, great character development. Most people would just write a character as passive and leave it at that but you actually gave him a more in depth personality that really did evolve and change. I wonder if DT will take note and start to emulate her masters personality-great for a long time, very level headed but then explosively retaliate when pushed to far. Come to think of it, most fire type are like that already... Atty will get along so terribly with a charmeleon... Oh god I can't wait!! The two will fight alllll the time.

Wait? "sit in corners, write poetry, sob quietly"... .... OH GODS! I'm emo! When did this ha--oh wait no I know when..
.... Does it count as "emo", if I put up a... "mask" (if you will), of good humor? But when alone break down?

Also, he yelled at her.... I am expecting George-cry. Or her storming off/them splitting up... again.

I knew a girl just like him. Call her emo and she would flip shit, funniest thing.
January 9th, 2013, 5:13 pm
Lets see... his first battle against another trainer was against three pokemon that were nearly fainted. Then sent against a giant water type monster of a pokemon. After that he was dragged around by her and set an entire forest on fire. Then forced into a gym battle to find out that wasn't even a gym leader.

He then wasn't allowed to heal his pokemon (Who doesn't heal before a gym battle?) and had his jumper used in a bet he didn't make. He was also beaten up, then when he tried to train his pokemon like she wanted. She dragged him into the ruins of the burnt forest full of cops and then calls him emo for wearing black because the rest of his clothing was stolen.

Did I just recap the story and is it a wounder that he hasn't snapped yet from everything that happened! I mean it was soppuse to be a very short not even one or at most two day trip in the first place.
January 9th, 2013, 5:19 pm
I wounder if we will ever see the Rattata from the begining chapters ever again?

A pokemon beat around and quickly abbanded by most trainers. Some don't even think he is worth even attempting to capture anymore. When were the days were people that he was a great pokemon... until he evolved into that worthless form.

Is it just me? Or does Atticus have glasses now?

I don't know what you're talking about.

I don't see any glasses.

Are you sure you're not going mad?
January 9th, 2013, 11:09 pm
1. I love this page.
2. Atty with glasses = <3 I like his design with and without glasses, of course.

So if I spend most of my time sitting in a corner writing poetry and sobbing quietly... Does that make me emo?
Blaze01 (Guest)
July 15th, 2017, 2:02 am
Why do I even bother? @Phenoca: That depends... do you also:
1. hurt yourself and enjoy it
2. always overreact to everything
3. know how to sing, "The Emo Song" (see my other comment)
4. always have the same facial expression no matter what you're doing, and
5. fight the emo way... FINISH YOURSELF!!! ....Fatality!
May 3rd, 2015, 12:16 pm
Somehow I get the vibe that Atty actually has an extremely high IQ but just doesn't show it.

I don't even know... *Sing to the tune of "The Fun Song"* "E is for emotional, ruins everybody's day/ M is for miserable people/ O is for on the dark side, 'cause we've got some fresh cookies!" ~The Emo Song, Ryan Higa, "How to be Emo" lesson number... 3, I think. WATCH IT NOW, PEOPLE.
