Atty, to whom the plot is a sidenote. He'll take a badge if it's going spare. What's the point in a badge if you don't have a jumper to pin it to.

See y'all soon.

They already practically stole his jumper from him while he fell unconscious! They don't deserve anything else!

The more I read this comic, the more I realize how fucked-up and corrupted the Kanto government, and the other regions' governments for that matter, are.

@ShinyHoundoom229: Yup. You beat up a kid's pets and steal half his money and the police will say you were in the right so long as you aren't wearing a Team Rocket uniform at the time.

I'd say they don't have a choice. They already knocked Atty unconscious and stole his stuff, I say that DT attack them no matter if they accept a challenge or not!

He does not have a point! Living, fire-breathing almost-dragon of awesome does not equal brown jumper. No.
Go buy a ball of yarn and if you lose he can have that and his non-mostly-blind girlfriend can make a new jumper.

I'm with Atty... ... since when do gym leaders steal pokemon from losing trainers?! I mean, pokemon wouldn't be the money-hoovering robot that it is today if they used FIRE EMBLEM LOGIC in it!

Also, I'm with Maiumaora, WobbleBird, and Chimerat above me.

From the looks of it, they don't know better than to take something of the challenger's if they win; it is as if they were taught that way. |D

Kinda confused... @ChaosSorceror_Davidicus

Yea, seriously. I don't get why they would want HIS pokemon? I don't recall Gym Leaders taking those things away from the losing trainer... This page really kinda throws me off. :[

What happened to Gym Leaders never turning down a challenge? Meh. I will wait and see how this plays out, and hope it settles my new-found unease about this page. ;n;

Of course you don't get anything if you lose, because unless I miss something, that's how gym battles are, right?

Failing that, yeah, I'm with the above.

Something bugs me about that double "Okay". I also still think DT's arm looks weird... The forearm is too large in comparison to the upper-arm. Rather, I think the upper-arm may be a bit too short... But I guess that's part of your raptory rendition of charmeleons :/

There has GOT to be something illegal about these twos business practices. The losing money thing from the games I can understand and get behind. Stripping someone of their clothes while theyre unconscious? Not cool. Taking someones Pokemon? Pretty sure thats the entire business model of Team Rocket...

Gym Leader What if Stein isn't the Gym Leader, he's just a stand in for the Captain guy from a few comics back reference. And Stein is just a normal trainer who is watching over the place, kinda like when Giovanni left Jesse and James in charge of the Earth badge. So they aren't league regulated leaders and don't really get the way the job works maybe.

Actually every battle is a bout winning money, you just don't notice this, since you seldom wipe out. It also seems that gym leaders are more or less government employed so it's an occupation. Ergo they should get paid anyhow.

@Kia: I think team rocket is bad because they steal more than half of peoples money. Or maybe they steal from people who don't have pokemon and thus aren't ok to beat up? Perhaps it's just a double standard though.

@H0lyhandgrenade: The whole point of a gym is for the challenger to try and succeed in order to win a prize. They pretty much stole his jumper, since they're gym people, not regular trainers (and this is overlooking that generally you only lose money).

Of course, that's only if you're actually looking for a response and not joking. :3 I love this comic! You're really clever.

@WobbleBird: YES!! xD

A perfect reply If you win, you get to KEEP the jumper. I never agreed to giving my jumper as a prize, but you just took it. That makes it a highway robbery.
Now, don't say it's rightfully yours, cause we don't take the clothes of trainers we randomly beat, do we? So if I win, the jumper's mine again. If you win, you get to keep. But you are NOT getting your hands on Dragonthing.
