Oh awesome, black clothes? I get to pretend I'm making a noir comic! I have wanted to for a while...

I like suiting up scenes.

See y'all soon.

YESSS ATTY! JOIN ROCKET! GIVE INTO THE ONE CHOICE WE NEVER WERE ALLOWED TOO!

Zomg... first post?! COOL!

But yess! I wish Nintendo would make a pokemon for older people with the actual honest-to-god choice of a secondary plot line.

Watch it be a fake-out, just DT standing there watching some random goon dress up.

Not that I wouldn't say no to Atty being a Rocket. I would love to see that story, actually.

To be perfectly honest. If he really joined Team Rocket then Im gonna be a bit disappointed. I was really looking forward to see him going trough the game

@Ramia: Some people have a theory that Gary/Blue did make that choice and is the reason why he was at every Team Rocket location waiting to battle you. He had the time to become champion so why not both?

I give him a full chapter before he goes "eh, to heck with this" and ditches the Rockets. :P

On that note... @Onasaki: How about instead of just a secondary plot line a Pokemon version of an elder scrolls game? You can go through the 'main questline' of collecting badges, or you can get sidetracked and grind, collecting awesome pokemon and the like!

Not I bet he is just suiting up to see how it fits and then hates it...

THIS! This is great. If this is what I think it is, then it is great. Finally, a Rocket plot line that isn't against them completely. I really hope for this. ;3; But even if it isn't, this is still the absolute best comic I have ever seen period.

Eh, I'm not so sure about this... sure, Rocket perspective is interesting and an "anti-hero" as a protagonist is as well, but Atty is actually light-hearted deep inside and he'll drop TR sooner or later. Hopefully this Rocket phase has some heavy plot impact and is not just a new suit to wear and feel dark and edgy once again while he keeps traveling through Kanto.

@PkBlitz: I think it DOES have a heavy plot, seeing as how H0ly did such a good job hyping me up for this chapter(saying there was a lot planned for it!)

As for Atty's character- I like your description of him being an interesting anti-hero and possibly taking on a Rocket perspective, and then saying that this may conflict with the fact that Atty, while sometimes blunt and seemingly unsympathetic towards ANY circumstance that doesn't add to his benefit, actually has a light-hearted side.
With that being said, I love the reason WHY Atty joined the Rockets. Atty clearly doesn't know who the Rockets are (keep this in mind- it's important) while the audience DOES. He doesn't know they actively seek to steal pokemon for their own benefit. He was sucked in because, and rightfully so, he thinks the adventure he's on doesn't live up to what it was SUPPOSED to represent. That girl (whatever her name is) hit a soft point for Atty, telling him exactly what he wanted to hear: that the pokemon adventure is actually a huge mess (when in the REAL world as Mokepon is set in) and it's my theory that Atty joined looking for a more organized experience, seeing as he never intended to go on a Pokemon adventure in the first place. Whether or not Atty gets the positive experience he is looking for, or whether or not Atty decides to join/stay on the team, depends entirely on the experiences he is subjected to and whether or not they come into conflict with his personal moral beliefs or not. Keep in mind, Atty thus far is completley ignorant to what the Rockets have done thus far, and his perspective of them at this moment hasn't been much accept finding their 'leader' to be sane, as well as saving him from his doom.

@pokeman92: He wasn't at Mt. Moon because he was recruited at the Rocket-ran Nugget Bridge north of Cerulean, he wasn't at Celadon because he was mourning the Raticate that died after S.S. Anne, or was assigned to Lavender Town, and the Sevii Islands weren't in the original games so it's hard to count that against the theory. As for Johto, it's likely that, after losing Champion status to Red, Gary/Blue was given control of the Viridian Gym by Giovanni, as a gesture of kindness for his star protege or something while he went into hiding. Out of respect for his mentor that gave him a second chance, Blue chose not to get involved with the "Neo Team Rocket" affair until he was certain that it was backed by Giovanni.

I'm so very sorry, I don't know why I would do this. DT watched intently as Master pulled off the loose-fitting jumper, his bare upper body causing her tail to twitch and sway. His scent was so strong, mixed with the smell of ash, it was more than her sensitive nose could handle. A short spout of flames exited her nostrils to clear them of the intoxicating pheromones that were playing tricks on her body. During her lapse in attention, Atty had taken off both his trousers and underwear and entered the shower. She went to follow him but stopped as she heard the sound of cascading water. 'Wet bad!' her instincts swiftly reminded her. She sat down on the bench in the dressing room and noted the new clothes Master was supposed to start wearing. Sniffing them she huffed and decided that until they were on Master, she didn't like them one bit.
I don't feel like finishing the story because my focus went to something else partway through and the weird writing mood's gone. *skips away merrily*

@AlkseeyaKC: Of course he did! LOL It's Atty after-all ;3


As a side note, I am SO happy to see him suiting up, if it really is him suiting up. Someone I believe has already said that it could be DT just watching someone else get dressed in the get-up. I really do hope it is Atty joining them for awhile. I would honestly love that. It makes for a great story to know that the main character isn't instantly having some HUGE connection with their Pokemon or is discovering that friendship is made of rainbows and sparkles and makes life 1005% better. I love that Atty is struggling, and thus seen an appeal to go into Team Rocket. It's really an interesting concept that I can't wait to see explored, if it is indeed explored.

He can either really meld into being a Rocket and like his new life and we get to follow a trainer that went down the road less traveled....OR we get to see Atty change and find himself by exploring this darker side and going "Nah, screw it. This isn't mean." and then continuing on his way trying to find another path. I like that Atty isn't just another big huge hero character that is all shiny and strong and a "good guy". He's made mistakes. He's hurt people. He's been selfish and a down-right pain in the ass jerk. However that is exactly what I love about him. He's not the norm, and I hope he continues to be different from the norm. I'm not saying I want him to be a heartless pokemon-stealing theif jerk person...but if he does turn out that way, I think I'd be A-OK with it! ^_^

KEEP UP ON THE AWESOME WORK HOLY! Man I wish I could draw...or wasn't poor and could pay people to draw... *cries in corner while happily waiting for updates*

*whispers* I'm also super excited about the new update schedule, congrats!
Fu!

Dear Mum,

Today I joined a... club. I've made a lot of new... friends. Our club mission statement is to... make friends. With the world. And its money.

Love and kisses,
