Happy extra update!

Atticus is a good mum. Either that or he's in it for the evs.

He actually things Oak spent time with the three starters rather than leaving them on a desk to rot. Cute.

See y'all soon.

Well, read from the first page, took me a couple hours, but I'm all caught up.

holy crap, how many pages was this even? And we're only in Mt. Moon? This is gonna be one long adventure.

Funny having just watched three of the Pokémon Origins episodes and coming to this.

I love that pause of DT's, deciding whether or not she was gonna spit it out.

At first glance I thought that Dragonthing was trying to snack on the corpse of a Zubat. That misconception made Atty's reaction 100% more hilarious.

That would have been a real shock though if it had been true... well by Pokemon world standards anyway.

No, he was right to stop Dragonthing from eating the Rare Candy, but wrong to just leave it on the ground. Should've gone to Rat, or that Magikarp we all know he bought, they need the levels more anyway, don't they?

Panel 5 looks like the face my dog makes "but i wanna eat it~"

Like many others, I also thought the rare candy was a zubat, but then noticed that what I thought were wings, was in fact the wrapper.

Why is everyone freaking out about not letting her gain ONE level? Sure, Rare Candys are, as the name suggests, rare in-game. But this is the "real" world for them. There are TONS of them. They're in wrappers for crying out loud! Someone is mass producing them and someone probably accidentally dropped that and figured it wasn't worth it to pick it back up.

I am going to retract my prior comment. I have to say it is indeed a rare candy.

Reasoning, if you look in the first three panels, with it sitting on the ground, you'll note that it is in what looks to be an unwrapped wrapper. As far as I'm concerned, case closed.

I HAD A DREAM ABOUT THIS COMIC LAST NIGHT

Atty and George were walking along (actually Atty was trying to run away from George)and this guy with a Dragonair wants to battle Atty!

And Atty is like "NO NO NO" So he throws rocks and sticks at the guy until he falls on the ground and is like "Eh, I'm dying."

George tries to help the guy and Atty just walks on.

Atty comes back eventually, find George gone and that the guy is in fact really dead and smelly. And his Dragonair is pregnant and just about to give birth.

But it was all a comic so I didn't get to see the next page where you see the baby whatever evolves into Dragonair.

It was pretty intense.

Hi there. Just letting you know there might be a break on pages for a little while. A couple weeks or so. I'm sorry to do this, I hate missing updates, but right now I have some health issues. I wish I could continue as normal but at the moment I just can't deal with an update schedule weighing over me. I'm sorry to those who donated for faster updates, but to make it up, when I go back to updating I'll put a load of extra updates in the following weeks to make up for it. So I hope that's okay.

Pretty much par for the course, really. @Crauss: I'm honestly not surprised, many of the webcomic artists I keep tabs on get sick often. So I'm understanding and patient about it. It happens often enough for me not to get impatient about it.

I cast my vote for it being a rare candy too. The shape is rather reminiscent of a lemon drop, though slightly rounder. I bet they're yummy - maybe made from sitrus berries. If he (or she?) can get there quick enough, maybe Rat will find it & get to level up!

So, how many of you have gotten your Charmander in X or Y and named it Dragon Thing?

@whoop: Mine is a male, but I named him DT anyway. :D

@GWRAndo: I went with Squirtle in Pokemon X. Pokemon Y that I'm playing now, I chose Charmander. So, I now have 2 fire types on my team (Charmeleon now & Combusken).

I've a few friends (and my boyfriend) who named their Charmanders DT. I probably would have done the same but since I started with Fennekin and had the event Torchic, I picked Squirtle to make up for the amount of fire starters thrown at my face.
