Been playing with how I do hair, trying something a bit different, so if Atty looks extra worth it over the next set of pages you know why.

See y'all soon.

Atticus has become a decent trainer. Alternatively, Dragonthing has become a powerful warrior.

You don't have any pokemon left! Now drop your money and black out already!

I never understood why my enemies never did that when I killed their team.

Also, not training Rat, Karp and Muddball(Oddish)? That's a baaaaaad idea, Atticus.

@JokaNeko: They all have a secret item called the NPC whistle, it instantly revives all your pokemon and holding it prevents blacking out.

However, it can't be used by players and requires you to stand stationary for the entirety of the game unless challenging someone to a battle...

@JokaNeko: You know he can just walk to Celadon City by cutting through Saffron. He IS a member of TR, so there shouldn't be a problem at the security gate.

@timefox: I vaguely remember one trainer who was banned from the league evolved his Magikarp through use as a blunt weapon…

@NaginiFay: That's because he's in cognito, undercover, a snake in the grass. Or simply off the clock.

Hurray for thepunchlineismachismo.com @Infernal_Translator: Jared wasn't banned because of the way he used his Magikarp, but because his Gyarados kept eating other trainer's pokemons. Silly Gyarados :3

Also, first time commenting on this comic. Love the art!

@JokaNeko: So it's a bad idea to train only his starter? I don't know. Once I completed Pokemon Blue by using ONLY Bulbasaur. Btw, I ALWAYS choose the grass starter in EVERY generation.

@JokaNeko: Since it's Gen1 he could probably do fine with only having one Pokemon for the game. I had a run in Blue that was nothing but a Gyrados, it was about level 89 when it beat the elite four and Gary. although it did have to take out almost all of Lance and Gary's teams with Struggle.

@NaginiFay: It does look like a nice style, though.

@JokaNeko: Don't criticize him for loving Dragonthing and nothing else in particular. The man's got issues. It's actually an okay way to do things, since with a single Pokémon that you train well, you can usually overpower an opponent that would normally have a type advantage on you. Sometimes training too MANY Pokémon can be a bad idea. Unless you're willing to invest time in grinding.

@DaRip74: Why would Rat want to kill anything? The poor guy's already got PTSD. We don't need to break him any further.

@AFeralFurry: His hair makes him look like he's from an anime. It's pretty cool, actually. It fits his face. Atty's just gorgeous. :3

@Doutonbori Robo: Yeah, but training Rat and Oddish would be helpful for the inevitable battle against Misty (or her equivalent). And training up that Magikarp will eventually be all sorts of useful.

Training Magikarp? @MrZAP: Only thing is because this is based on gen 1 the only ways to train a magikarp are "the bait and switch", "the pokemon daycare", and "depleting the pp for splash, and only using items to heal the magikarp and putting it in the pc if you have to use a pokemon center".

@timefox: What's wrong with him using the bait and switch? So far this has seemed to follow the game, so I don't see why he couldn't just do that (once he realizes it's possible, anyway... George or someone could clue him in).

@MrZAP: The only problem with the bait and switch is the other guy gets a free hit. But I guess it is the cheapest way to train a magikarp in gen1.

Magikarp technically took out a buttload of Clefairy, don't forget. If he's not level 19 going on level 20 right now, he's gotta be close to.

@MrZAP: What's wrong with him using the bait and switch is that he literally doesn't care about raising the fish. It doesn't pertain to his interests, and it likely won't until it somehow magically evolves.

@Lele: Ekans' head is a little bit bulbous. That's just how it was made. I'm not a fan of that Ekans, but that's just because I'm not a fan of Ekans in general. Which is strange, because I do enjoy Arbok.

I'm really liking how Atty here is pretty much beating everyone up just with DT xD

Oh gosh I am so jelly of how you can do hair, btw. (Also how you're able to make stuff look good in BW, all my stuff looks uber flat)

It looks like he's only training one pokemon so far, and if I'm not mistaken, the next gym is water... and his other two pokemon are strong to water... hmm...

@guest: Wow, that screen name is so fancy. Lower case, golly gee willikers. He actually doesn't though. He looks older than 10, but a 14-year old boy normally would have a more rounded face still. And the hair has nothing to do with what someone looks like in terms of age. Unless it's in an advanced stage of balding or there's just a half-ring of hair around your scalp. x3

@Lady Darkrina: Sadly, I'm not able to do such things, and I never have been. I have to have a full party, and I'm VERY OCD about my training regimen. I have to level every Pokémon to the same level, and they have to be in order based on HP from lowest to highest. I get rather awkward when I find Rare Candies, or when I notice one of my Pokémon lagging behind. In which case I'll use a Rare Candy because screw EV training. That's for awful people anyway.

@Thalateya: Yeah, well. If he levels Dragonthing up enough he can pretty much void the fact that Water-types are so effective on her. Almost. In either case she's probably somewhat beefy from doing most of the work. He's going to like Pokémon a lot more once they start evolving on him though, I'm sure. Whenever that might be. Rat's been training on the sidelines too, though. Maybe he'll steal Dragonthing's thunder when they get to the gym, if you know what I mean. ;3

@sonics1030: I do very much love the Grass-types. They tend to be much more tactful than a lot of other types, and I do very much love Bulbasaur for the Kanto region. But I tend to pick the starter that would most appropriately help me get around or take out Gyms smoothly. But I have a bit of a problem with some starters just because of aesthetics. For Gen 1, I'd usually pick Bulbasaur. For Gen 2... I don't often pick Chikorita, solely because it's type doesn't exactly get it anywhere in the Johto region, except for maybe on Chuck's Poliwrath. That's it. But I really like Feraligatr for the Johto region. For Hoenn, Mudkip's actually a better choice, but I prefer Treecko more. Then Turtwig, etc...

Stat-wise though, Charizard IS the strongest out of the Kanto starters. The starters don't have the same base stat totals, even though they probably should. It's not MUCH of a difference, but it's a difference.

@pokeman92: People of his stature probably tend to wear the expression for a lot of different emotions, or what have you. He's just a large guy, so the shock of having his Machop-chop taken to dinner is probably quite the jaw-dropper. Or yawning-expression-maker. Or... what have you.
I have a feeling that Hikers make the most use of that facial expression, honestly. They're such jolly fellows, and H0ly's done so well to embody that feat with Hikers already. If you hadn't noticed. I think Hikers are my new favorite guys now.

Love the way his hair looks :) Also the slightly squarer jaw fits him in my opinion. His round face made him look a bit young in the previous pages. Either way, please keep the hair <3

Also, can we have George fight somebody please? I'd love to see some more of her Pokemon team. Plus, it'd be fun to see if her Pokedex knowledge would actually serve her well in battles or if she'd just get distracted listing off facts about the opponent :P

@Literas: Oh, yes. That'd be a pleasant thing to see. Though after 4 years I'd hope George'd be past that phase.

@Sushirolled: You know, I KNEW somebody would point it out.
I find a lot of enjoyment commenting on people's things within this comic. I've been rather lonely, and I find solace in this. Now, to the matter of how MUCH I comment, that's just my way of unleashing my professional opinions on said things.
I do hope the amount I comment bothers nobody in particular. It's just nice being able to do so freely. Some of the things I comment on cause me to do research, and I do so very much love research.
