See through tops of pokeballs? Bleh. I say, if you haven't labelled it you're leaving it to luck, and just pretending whichever Pokemon you send out was the one you wanted.

See y'all soon.

Yes, Dragonthing! Make him understand the error of his ways!

Make him an NPC no more!

I always figured they just memorized the order in which they put the balls on their belts.

Poor Pikachu @Takai: Aaawww. I pity the poor fella...

ahaha yeah that would be me, the person with the fat black sharpie who writes on the balls.
August 20th, 2014, 5:59 pm
Isn't Special the only one with the see-through balls? Always found that a bit weird.

I'd definitely put a mark on the ball to help me remember which Pokémon is which. Maybe get little stickers that are like the marks you can put on Pokémon in the games for some odd reason. Take 'em off before they get deposited and re-use them.
August 20th, 2014, 6:18 pm
@Taseli: Yes, but Atticus (the one the pronouns "him" and "his" where directed at) is a boy.
August 20th, 2014, 6:20 pm
@BattleStarX: Meh. Why bother taking them off? Just get stickers in the images of your pokemon. No need to change stickers (until they evolve)! Great system!

Do I smell a moral judgment incoming?
August 20th, 2014, 6:31 pm
Awww poor rat he looks so miserable. T~T Atty you better get your crap together and start treating your pokemon better. That, or at least give Rat to George.

Am I the only one that would just memorize which Poke Ball held what? Given a few weeks, I would think it would be second nature to know which one is which.

...Well, unless you're Atty. I doubt he cares enough to.
August 20th, 2014, 6:39 pm
That Oddish is disturbingly chipper.
August 20th, 2014, 6:51 pm
@Taseli: Yes?

"Yes, Dragonthing! Make him understand the error of his ways!

Make him an NPC no more!"

"Him" refers to Atticus, not to Dragonthing. Unless you are actually referring Dragonthing as the human, who is most certainly a girl. The human girl Dragonthing, the once Atticus who was most certainly not a boy, REBORN!

He's actually starting to get a pretty well rounded team. Electric, water, fire, and grass

Yellow I think Yellow was the only protagonist who could actually see into pokeballs that were closed.

I remember this problem coming up in the anime a few times (usually whenever team rocket stole a pile of pokeballs) and at least one person did have stickers on his pokeballs to help identify them. I believe it was... Richie? The guy with the Pikachu that Ash meets near the end of the Kanto series.

@Guest: That sounds like a ship fic intro.

I got a giggle out of it, haha.

@Tsumeken: All pokeballs in the Pokemon Adventures manga have a translucent top half.

She's jealous cause he's hanging out with a grass type.
August 20th, 2014, 10:50 pm
@Prior Semblance: It was to identify which ones were his, not which one held what (if we talk about Richie, he only put a star on each ball, still no real difference). I think they usually learn the order in which they are on the belt or wherever they have it and it was mostly a problem when someone else has to pick the ball for them.

Dragonthing: "Who is that girl? Why is she dancing on your lap!? D:"

I guess Dragonthing doesn't like that Atticus is a bad guy now.
Drewbie (Guest)

How Atty views his team... I wonder if training with Dragonthing is the only training rat has had?
SeriousJupiter (Guest)
August 21st, 2014, 2:46 am
There's something unbelievably depressing and funny about the fact that the second Rat comes out of his Poké Ball he already has that sad look. Maybe he doesn't have any other facial expressions anymore. Yep, Atty isn't the kindest Trainer to most of his team, although he hasn't said or done anything to Oddish yet.

@Mio_Chouseki: Haha, funny. That Oddish is a dirty little Pokémon.

@Drewbie: Nah, Rat also beat up and got beaten up by some Zubat in Mt. Moon too... Unless that counts as training with Dragonthing, since she was out at the moment as well.

It could be that Atticus is now a bad guy and DT doesn't like it. But maybe Atty just doesn't have enough badges for DT to still obey him as he's farmed up pretty good. We are near Cerulean, perhaps it's time for a new gym battle.
August 21st, 2014, 4:16 am
LOL That oddish is super cute xD
August 21st, 2014, 5:57 am
Damnit, pay attention to the oddish!
Unclever title
August 21st, 2014, 6:31 am
Lol, he doesn't even keep his pokeballs organized.

I have no idea why I was surprised by this. But I was.
Prior Semblance (Guest)

@Rorro: The whole disobeying thing only happens with traded Pokemon

I choose you......*waits for flash*....oh crap i mean magicarp!!
August 21st, 2014, 9:19 am
Who looks at a Pikachu and says "Nope"? Honestly.
Someguy (Guest)
August 21st, 2014, 9:23 am
@Prior Semblance: Actually, it can happen to your own Pokémon, as well. You just need to drive their happiness down for it to start happening. I remember accidentally doing it with my Squirtle, one of the first times I played Red. (Losing battles is bad, mmkay?)

Strange little Oddish Jeebus! That Oddish is running everywhere!
AFeralFurry (Guest)

@god shadow death: If that was the case, he'd be giving Dragonthing to George.

Say it with me, guys and girls.

Do not want!
August 21st, 2014, 11:41 am
There is a lot of cute on this page. (Walking-plant, Rat) I fore see something going horribly wrong very soon. XD

Aww what a sad little face from Rat..
August 21st, 2014, 1:27 pm
@The Missingno. Master: There was a pokemon theory about that actually. Its trully unknown how people remember which one is which. For me I'm going to put a special mark on them. Flame for fennekin bird for Pidgeot...

Hummm... Can it be, that Dragonthing is a bit pissed about the whole just giving the Item back after all the hardships the robbery toke?
August 21st, 2014, 2:42 pm
this comic is a personal favorite

@Someguy: Red version doesn't even have happiness and as far as I know it doesn't matter because happiness doesn't effect obedience in any of the games.

The move Frustration would be a bit pointless if you needed to have a disobedient Pokemon just to use it.
AFeralFurry (Guest)
August 21st, 2014, 6:36 pm
@Prior Semblace: Frustration as it is is kind of pointless. You have to be an even worse trainer than Silver could ever be, essentially torturing your Pokemon, when really, Return does that without the hard work of making them hate you.
August 21st, 2014, 8:08 pm
Iiiiiiiis it just me or is his team turning out surprisingly balanced? They... they've all been acquired out of sheer luck...

August 21st, 2014, 9:11 pm
@gimletcat: I'd expect him to just throw a ball up in the air one day and catch a Spearow, or a Pidgeotto (because who really cares about Pidgey). It'd be better still if he threw one upward and caught a Doduo randomly... Since Doduos can Fly.

I'm sure everyone has a pretty funny image in their head when they think about that, though. I know I do. >w>

I think DT is pissed that Atticus has a happy Pokémon with a high affection rate or whatever its called when he treats all his other Pokémon like tools
August 21st, 2014, 9:53 pm
@Doutonbori Robo: watch Atty 'accidentally' catch all 3 rare birds once he gets to that point....
AFeralFurry (Guest)
August 21st, 2014, 9:56 pm
@Doutonbori Robo: ..Wait, really?

I've never had a Doduo, so...

*Imagines a wingless bird flying... Somehow*
Doutonbori Robo
August 21st, 2014, 10:12 pm
@AFeralFurry: Yeah, the most popular visualizations of it are that said Doduo will run SO fast that it lifts itself off the ground, or that it uses it's necks as a sort of propeller.

My favorite Flying-type Pokémon in Gen 1 was Dodrio. Unless I'm counting Legendaries, then it's Articuno.

But I often don't take Legendaries into consideration.
Soulstormraptor (Guest)
August 21st, 2014, 11:18 pm
Doduo That bird can fly, i know!
how may you ask, i know because its a flying type! mhaaaaaaaaaaa mhaaaaaaaaaaa(dont knw don't ask)
so is Gyarados did't know that until i was in a sky battle(yes i have pokemon X and Y)
Also i'm writing this at 12:17 at night
Doutonbori Robo
August 22nd, 2014, 1:58 am
Oh look at me. I changed the conversation from guesses as to why Dragonthing isn't happy to the fact that Doduo can fly. I must be so proud.

@Soulstormraptor: I might've been had you not ruined it for me. Thanks.
August 22nd, 2014, 9:21 am
hmm that comment about dragonthing being a girl gave me an idea for fan art unless its been done already, a human/charmeleon hybrid :) too bad i cant draw

Event: "A wild Mewtwo has appeared!"
Atticus: "Ahh! Get away!" *throws pokeballs to try and drive it off*
Event: "Mewtwo has been captured!"

Yeah, it's been done.

@Barzha: That's not even kosher.
Just look it up, you're sure to find it.

Uncouth heathen.

August 22nd, 2014, 1:32 pm
Is that a slight smile I see on Atticus?
AFeralFurry (Guest)
August 22nd, 2014, 1:45 pm
@TimeSceo: I noticed that too. I suppose it's because, despite hating the world at large, he really is fond of DT.
August 22nd, 2014, 10:39 pm
@Satyrwyld: That will be the last page... ;)
