I wonder how much of her earnings she'll spend on Pokeballs, and their variants.

B.S. That's why i wouldn't want to join her on her quest it's not worth it.

Well, well. George wants to be the very best.

Also, she wants EVERY Pokemon in the world. That's... Ambitious. And vaguely villainous.
August 27th, 2014, 5:45 pm
I thought the goal was to fill the Pokedex, so that would mean three Pidgeys and three Weedles...

I think it's a better idea to capture every Farfetch'd in existence and kill all but one, so your Farfetch'd is a one-of-a-kind legendary that few have seen.
August 27th, 2014, 5:51 pm
Its proven, she's sick.
August 27th, 2014, 6:03 pm
And then once every beast and man in the world calls you master, you shall become a god!
August 27th, 2014, 6:07 pm
...How many PC Boxes will you need to hold EVERY single Pokémon?

And how the heck would you get any stronger? Only since Gen-VI has a capture given EXP.
August 27th, 2014, 6:09 pm
Well that won't be good for the eco-system.....

@Aslandus: *Maniacal laughter*

Exactly! The one, the only, the strongest trainer, in the world!


She's going to need a bigger hard drive on her PC...

It appears someone misunderstood the concept. x3

Silly George, the PC simply isn't big enough for all of your shenanigans. Settle down and give Atty another sandwich.

Once she finds out about all the OTHER Pokemon on the other continents, I could wager she'd drop that goal. Crushed dreams are 'kay, I guess.

@Novanto: Actually, that'd mean one Pidgey and one Weedle. You just have to evolve them. It still records the Pokemon's previous evolutions as captured even after it's been evolved.

@HaikenEdge: There can't possibly be enough PokeDosh between all the trainers in the world to afford what she desires.

@BattleStarX: There is a simple non-game solution to that. Pit your own Pokemon against each other.
Or, I guess she could just go to the Day Care.
August 27th, 2014, 6:37 pm
Oh, I thought it meant gotta catch one of every pokémon, not actually all.

Looks like I've been playing the games wrong all this time, damn.
August 27th, 2014, 6:40 pm
Either George's been brainwashed or she's the most evil mastermind on the face of the planet.
AFeralFurry (Guest)

@troblsomtwins829: This just gave me an odd mental image of George preparing to end the world while standing on Mt. Silver, with her massive Pokemon army preparing to kill everything in the universe.

Not sure if awesome or hilarious.
August 27th, 2014, 6:57 pm
@Doutonbori Robo: True, but I think she wants one of everything, so that means three each.
August 27th, 2014, 7:01 pm
To own every single pokemon would mean that you have all of the pokemon in the world. No one else has any pokemon, because you have them all.

I guess that's one way to be the best. Have the only pidgeys in the world.
Why hasn't she worked for Team Rocket yet
Doutonbori Robo
August 27th, 2014, 7:21 pm
Yeah, it doesn't seem like she and Team Rocket are that much different, after all. Too bad she doesn't realize that.

Actually, she sounds worse.
AFeralFurry (Guest)
August 27th, 2014, 8:01 pm
@Doutonbori Robo: Yeah, I think she's lost her mind.

Though, that is true. TR is doing this for money, they take little pleasure in their work. George wants every Pokemon in the world for herself because why not.

I can only imagine the wails of disappointed 10 year olds across the world that didn't get their starters...
August 27th, 2014, 8:04 pm
I almost thought for the last panels she said that's the noble of all faggots but i misread and got my glasses.

You know, I've always suspected that the "Gotta Catch 'Em All" was a marketing slogan propagated to sell more stuff (in RL Pokemon franchise)... Now I feel it's probably true in-story as well... the Pokeball industry...

Atticus! Give her the Pikachu Ear! It'll be the next biggest thing since Slowpoke Tail!
Doutonbori Robo
August 27th, 2014, 8:55 pm
@Evilbob: That does sound like a legitimate theory. It appears the Pokemon world isn't much different from ours. Except the animals can throw leaves and breath fire and whatnot.

@Infernal Translator: The Not-So-Tasty, Not-So-Juicy, Negatively Charged PIKACHU EAR.

No seriously can you imagine how juicy one of those fat Slowpoke tails could be.
August 27th, 2014, 8:58 pm
she has the wrong idea of 'gotta catch em all'...
Unnessecary (Guest)

How long have Atticus' question contained question marks?

Wait, every Pidgey?!
I thought it was collect one of each species.

G-George...? You okay there? You seem to have gone a bit mad.

but you beat me to it :P

I get it. I get it. I so get it. I've known this about George's character for awhile now, but...this pretty much confirms it. she is a desperately lonely person. She clings on to Atty because he's the only one who hangs out with her long enough. She drives everyone else away with how annoying she is. She captures every pokemon that comes her way because she desperately just doesn't want to be alone. I don't think I'm spoiling anything when I say, I look forward to how she got this OCD about keeping friends.
Doutonbori Robo
August 28th, 2014, 1:16 am
@I ate a glowstick: 'Kay, have fun developing your opinions about George. We'll see if they pan out.

@lupinesentinel: I like your version better, but really just for the end of it. Too many question marks though.

@Unnessecary: It's been like that as long as he has actually felt it necessary to add question marks to the end of his questions. It's happened before.
August 28th, 2014, 2:52 am
I get the impression George MAY have misinterpreted that phrase...
August 28th, 2014, 2:58 am
Okay... George seems a bit crazy right there. Walking away slowly now...
August 28th, 2014, 3:20 am
Yeaaah... Every. Single. Pokemon. George, sweetie, your obsession is showing.
Drewbie (Guest)
August 28th, 2014, 4:09 am
This sounds vaguely familiar... Using pigeons to deliver messages was how a whole species died out wasn't it? I wonder if that'll happen when George captures EVERY pidgey?
SeriousJupiter (Guest)
August 28th, 2014, 6:05 am
Wow. She's insane. And here I thought all this time that she was just a clingy, lonely kid with a few issues.

Too bad that she will never be able to reach her goal. I mean, it sounds pretty impossible to begin with, but if this comic follows the game logic in this particular subject, it is literally impossible. No matter how many Pokémon you KO or catch on any route or area, there will always be more of them until you're eventually forced to go back to the Pokémon Center to restore your Pokémon's PPs despite how many Max Elixirs you own. Pokémon are infinite and everlasting. "Gonna Catch 'Em All" has always meant simply completing the Pokédex and that will never change.
August 28th, 2014, 6:11 am
With that attitude she should really be the one wearing the team rocket uniform.
August 28th, 2014, 6:24 am
pfftahahahahah, oh the poor fool, she doesn't know the total, she'll be an old lady before she'll.. "Catch em all"

suddenly, another 150 are discovered
August 28th, 2014, 6:57 am
you guys kinda comment a lot and a lot of people here.
August 28th, 2014, 7:12 am
George actually looks really cute in that second to last panel... lol
Evilbob (Guest)
August 28th, 2014, 8:02 am
@Doutonbori Robo: We've always learned from nature. Clearly the Shellders' know something about Slowpoke tails that we don't! If they're worth giving up your freedom and that much effort for the Shellders, clearly they're worth something! (As fishing bait if nothin' else...)
Mjoern (Guest)
August 28th, 2014, 10:25 am
WEll, well, well... I kinda do the same minus the mental disorder I suppose : I catch bunch of pokemons for each species (I have sometimes more than 200 poke before the 6th badge) and only use the best nature and IV I can find then I EV train them all before their stats are too polluted by stupid "can't run from trainer battle" and then I destroy every single NPC mercilessly with under-leveled yet much stronger pokemon...
Mjoern (Guest)
August 28th, 2014, 10:28 am
@Koal: she's up to catch every single individual not one of each specie, I don't think 150 can startle her
Raxis (Guest)
August 28th, 2014, 10:33 am

She wants to enslave all the pokemon D:
August 28th, 2014, 12:55 pm
@Evilbob: Shellders are probably just vampires, disguised as shells
August 28th, 2014, 1:06 pm
"And she shall unite all of them into one Khalasar and conquer the world."

Using her Dragon pokemon. Burning the land of her enemies so that her son, Rhaego, may mount the world.
August 28th, 2014, 1:23 pm
It'll be funny if she turns out to be evil.
August 28th, 2014, 1:34 pm
@yaoi4evandnevayuri: Yeah, that would, wouldn't it. ;)

Doutonbori Robo
August 28th, 2014, 2:48 pm
@Kroric: Shit, she actually is kind of cute.

@Mjoern: I think she literally means every Pokémon of EVERY specie. Also, you're a little crazy when it comes to IVs and EVs. Way to make it a chore.

@JermhyTheHedgehog: We comment a lot because we enjoy the comic. Is that not normal?

@Guest: Stop being just a Guest, it's hard to discern between all of you. The Shellders SHOULD be vampires. But also shells. Not just disguised as such.

@Chelvo la Worm: Oh for the love of all that is righteous and just. It's an ACRONYM now? Corruption!
August 28th, 2014, 2:51 pm
Ms. George has gone off the deep end without Atty.
August 28th, 2014, 2:52 pm
Look Atty, somebody with spare pokemon to steal.
August 28th, 2014, 2:55 pm
@Doutonbori Robo: Just so much people I get lost in these.

I would love to see Atty taking one of George's Pokemon.

That sounded funnier in my head.
August 28th, 2014, 10:04 pm
As embarrassing as it is to admit... When I was a kid, I too caught any and all pokemon that was higher level or evolved versions of things I already had, even if only a couple levels higher than my own. :/

I was a stupid kid.
DudeB (Guest)
August 28th, 2014, 11:02 pm
I've been thinking... I've been thinking about just what "gotta catch 'em all" (George version) would actually entail. and i believe it's far more sinister then previously believed.

it involves the acquisition of all pokemon: this entails the following:

Gain all currently wild pokemon
Gain all currently owned pokemon (yay theft)
Gain all currently dead pokemon(grave robbing) because they may eventually become fossils and as such become living pokemon
Gain all currently existing eggs (kidnaping?)
Gain all currently stored pokemon
Gain all current fossils

To do this a few things are nescessary:

Gain all Pokeballs/ enslave all those who make capturing devices so all capturing devices will be yours

Gain all the boxes in the pc/ enslave bob and all others who run the poke-transfer system so that all boxes become yours and that no people maintaining the boxes "get a conscience" and return any boxes, thus ensuring space to hold said pokemon.

Enslave the pokecenters to ensure that one can always heal one's pokemon despite becoming a world renowned infamous international criminal.

raid every pokemon lab, museum and research facility for fossils and relics to ensure all pokemon related things are yours

crush the law enforcement of the world, to ensure continuous acquisition of pokemon runs smoothly.

enslave team rocket, as manpower will inevitably be needed to accomplish one's goals and most others will prove far less receptive to orders.

enslave the day cares and breeders of the world to raise your Inexorably huge cache of eggs.

enslave the scientists of the world to ensure no back dealing of poke tech gets to the masses, and to ensure that any man made pokemon come strait to you and no others.

crush the governments of the world to eliminate organized rebellion against you ensuring that you forever maintain your hoard of pokemon.

crush the dreams of all the children of the world who seek to get their first pokemon and go on adventures.

and to enslave the rangers to help maintain areas for your pokemon to stretch out and relax while having no hope of escape

that i believe is all which would need to occur in order for one to effectively "Catch them all"

which subsequently makes it an impossible task far more evil than any team rocket could have ever imagined in my mind...

George can be kind of scary when you think things through a bit.

I think I officially like her a bit more now.
sowerofash (Guest)
August 29th, 2014, 12:57 am
wrong method She should make a world-sized pokeball and capture the entire planet

It would be faster
Harangue (Guest)
August 29th, 2014, 2:06 am
George...sweetheart...that's not...

At most, the phrase "Catch 'em all" means one of each, not...

Y'know what, just nevermind.
Doutonbori Robo
August 29th, 2014, 2:14 am
@DudeB: That's why we're saying "Gotta catch 'em all". It's a much simpler version of what you just spewed out with all things accounted for, in this context.
The guy's name is Bill, by the way.

@sowerofash: You wouldn't need a world-sized Pokéball. It could be much smaller than that. I'm not even going to consider carrying an Onix-sized Pokéball just to hold an Onix. That'd be ludicrous.
Besides, if you tried to capture the planet, the combined efforts of everything on the planet (including Captain Planet) trying to wriggle free would cause the planet to escape.

If somehow one would make an attempt at capturing the planet using that method, they'd be committing suicide anyway. In the vacuum of space.

Gotta love the alt-text
August 29th, 2014, 9:03 am
@BattleStarX: The simple solution is that you don't, you use an entire team for each battle against a stronger wild pokemon...

Then use a team of the stronger "ex-wild" pokemon to catch even stronger wild pokemon, until you have max level pokemon that are exactly as strong as they were in the wild, all without levelling up...
Mjoern (Guest)
August 29th, 2014, 9:28 am
Hey! @Doutonbori Robo:
It's not crazy it's just to have a good genetical base to start breeding!
if you start breeding bad pokemon from the start you ll never get the strongest..
Palador (Guest)
August 29th, 2014, 3:04 pm
It's an impossible goal...

Unless you're with Atty. Where he passes, no Pokemon remain.

Tall grass? Destroyed by mower. Forest? Burned to ashes. Cave? Blown up and caved in. Even the first gym is empty now.
Odd Girl (Guest)
August 29th, 2014, 3:13 pm
@DudeB: Being since humans and Pokemon are supposedly the same according to generation IV... wouldn't that mean that she'd have to catch all the people as well?
August 29th, 2014, 3:18 pm
C'mon Atty! That's an easy hire you're looking at there. Play off that obvious psychosis and convince her Team Rocket is the place for her. They're the only ones in the business of actually "catching them all!" Who else could teach George what she really wants to know?
AFeralFurry (Guest)
August 29th, 2014, 4:11 pm
@Odd Girl: That's if you go by the U.S. localizations.

The Japanese version just says they intermarried. So, basically, (most) humans have at least a little Pokemon in them.

If she goes by that, George must capture herself.
August 29th, 2014, 8:33 pm
@Mjoern: I meant TOTAL, there are like around 700 pokemon.
February 25th, 2016, 6:20 am
@Koal: about 720 :3
August 31st, 2014, 3:45 pm
... ten years down the line, george finally comes to the inveitable conclusion, her the only feasible method of completing her goal lies in genocide. Just look at that sith face in the last panel.

Catch 'em All Doesn't that just mean that she won't leave any Pokemon for other people?
