I am surprised Dragonthing's tail isn't supplying any light.

I find it funny that Atticus' only motivation to do things the way trainers are supposed to do them is beating Kahn.

I just marathoned my way to the latest page, which is this as the time of writing. Some traits I've noticed I felt worth noting:

-Permanent damage is only possible on non-captured pokemon. The only exception so far has been Rat, but traditionally Pikachus in particular have been shown to be able to be injured in superficial ways even in canon.

-Where the fuck did the cute Ratatta go, and why do I suspect it's going to be a cute Raticate that'll save Atty's life?

-George is yandere as fuck.

Great job on all of your work so far, it's amazing!

@Auron: How is George a yandere? Or are you just using the term to mean she has a lose screw somewhere?

@Auron: George is not Yandere. Yandere needs a certain degree of insane violent behavior to be part of that stereotype. Additionally, Yanderes behave really sweet until someone crosses them. George hasn't shown any of these characteristics.

Also, I'm guessing Abel will blame George for the missing pokemon.

even with the fire sources, it'll take eyes a bit to adjust (besides complete dark is far funnier).

Also, people may be spot on about upsetting abel. He has access to a machine that can logically create an infinite number of copies of trainer's massively powerful pokemon limited only by the amount of energy he has on hand. And there are an absurd number of pokemon capable of generating crazy amounts of energy.

Sure a swarm of bugs is scary. How about a swarm of garydos?

Well I know this is cheating but two guesses here: 1) it's Abel, and he's more than pissed off about the missing Pokemon, or 2) It's whoever stole the missing Pokemon (assuming it wasn't George/Atty) and they are about to be mugged/murdered/both.

(3: That foreign Team Rocket member must have just stolen the power plant gear, and is in the process of hiding it in Cerulean's gym pool as you are reading this)

Yeah stealing from the guy who controls the power source isn't the best of ideas. But hey, maybe, just maybe, it wasn't Atty or George who stole the pokeball.
I'm thinking it was George's old traveling buddy, whats his name....Jace. After all, I'm thinking Abel wasn't there when Jace went up to the Lighthouse to visit. :3 Aaaaaaand plot twist! XD
Atty will get Tali for his service in retrieving the pokeball from the sneak thief, Jace! lol

@sjTaylor: George shows the common traits despite not being upfront about it.
-Resorting to manipulation or tactics, potentially violence (Shown in the entire Pewter City arc) to secure lover
-Clingyness and a desperate refusal to change perspectives on their target (She refuses to think Atty is bad, ever.)
-Bipolar personality or at the very least a subversive personality (I have a feeling we'll see A LOT of this)

There is no rival 'love interest' at the moment, unless you count Kahn, so I can't substantiate direct hostility to rivals just yet.

If you have any questions as to if she's interested in him, look at the implications of their 'date', also in Pewter.

I'm unaware of a term to associate her closer with, especially since the common ones like Tsundere would be ruled out due to how closely and attentively she follows him.

@Auron: When was she potentially violent during pewter city? I read all of it a month or two ago, but I don't remember all the details.

I wouldn't say I have a great understanding of the subversive personality(so correct me if I'm wrong), but if one of the signs is "You question everything and have doubts about what people tell you" I'm going to have to disagree. George just doesn't seem skeptical enough to me. I also think you'd have to assume George's actions are a bit more deliberate than I'm inclined to believe.

The way I see George's character right now is that she's a lot closer to a young and naive person who, in many cases, just doesn't know any better (like putting an eevee into a microwave). We don't know much about her childhood except that she went out into the world when she was at most 14 years old.

I agree that tsundere wouldn't fit, but not because of how closely she follows him. A tsundere character could find some rationalization to 'justify' it. Perhaps saying that they might as well travel together since the're going the same way, etc.

I just looked at their 'date' if that was George showing him around town, and while I agree it shows she's interested in him I'm seeing zero Yandere.

I don't think Tsundere, Kuudere, Dandere, Yandere, or any of the other tropes I can think of fit well with George.

Do you remember if George ever found out about Mana taking care of George?

@sjTaylor: As far as pewter: It is implied that she probably knew the dude was going to forcibly take him back to the gym, and the subject is dismissed rather quickly without much explanation. I was referring primarily to the 'manipulation' bit, but she seems to be getting more attached by the arc to arc basis.

Subversive would be much closer to what I mentioned above- To subvert is to undermine or overthrow, primarily. She seems to be very good at getting her way, eventually. This was even noted on a prior page.

As I said prior, Yandere was just 'the best fit' in a sea of 'doesnt fit at all', and I will add I was mostly joking. I had already charted out the third line and realized I was drawing a blank. To elaborate as well, I wasn't particularly relating her to violence, but more to the psychological aspects. I feel we'll see more as time goes on.

Oh no! DT's tail fire is out! If I remember my pokemon lore, Abel just killed DT... See what you have wrought, Atty?

But seriously, DT's fire should be lighting the way... at least a little.

Still, nitpicks aside, it looks like stuff is going to get exciting.

it's not that Dragonthing's tail isn't lighting up the area but rather that it CAN'T. now that the lights have all gone out the only means of illumination is the move Flash. be afraid, be VERY afraid

@ThatOneRandomGuy: Yeah but remember even without Flash you can still see a small area around you, so DT's tail should still illuminate stuff. Otherwise, I think you found a glitch. LOL
