@Squirreltastic-Blue: not unless you happen to come by a Pikachu going through Viridian forest

I know what you got mixed up on the cover... You forgot the bandage on Rat's ear!

In all seriousness though, this is a pretty kickass action shot. It's amazing, and it really makes me look forward to what this gym will be like.

@Draexzhan: *One hasty edit later* Don't know what you're talking about.

Thanks =)

Aww they're close enough to share clothes!

Also Atty, what are you doing using a fire type in a water gym when you've got an electric type right there?! Does pikachu not wanna fight Misty again?

@carnival: Tell that to Ashe who used pikachu to beat Brock!

I like how all three of his other pokemon who would each be a better choice of type to be battling water pokemon are sitting on the sidelines.

Magikarp is inches away from the water.

This cover is so awesome.

Is it just me, or did Atty and George trade jackets?

Oh Atty... So stubborn. :P

This should prove an interesting match. And the type disadvantage has sure drawn a crowd!

He's still wearing the Rocket uniform under his jumper. Hahaha.

At first I saw the Seel's teeth as eyes and its tongue as a nose. It makes for a Sonic-esque character.

What has been seen cannot be unseen.

Of course Atty would attempt to use Dragonthing in an attempt to brute force another win against the Water gym. Why wouldn't he, I mean it's not like he has a Pikachu or Oddish or a soon-to-be Water Demon or anything...

I just imagine someone saying:
Charmeleon, back in the pool!
November 10th, 2014, 7:44 pm
Either Dragonthing's about to boil some water pokemon, or Atty's gonna have to learn the strategy part of battling the hard way.
November 10th, 2014, 8:05 pm
Love the title page Heh, just what you would expect from him. Poor DT!
November 10th, 2014, 8:16 pm
Great comic! Keep up the good work!

so much wrong... Jumper swap
The guy who I hope is in speedos
(speedos > naked , they are both wrong for public pools)
wrong Pokémon for the fight (has 3 better choices)
tail fire (hopefully pull a red(Pokémon origins) and not kill her for swimming)

You Forgot... Holy! you forgot the accent on the e in Mokepon! and you forgot it on the last title page as well!
November 10th, 2014, 10:16 pm
Wait, did Atty and George switch jumpers or is that a sign of things to come?
Leafy (Guest)
November 10th, 2014, 10:21 pm
my prediction is that Atty will choose magikarp and it will evolve! Muahahahaha!

Here's something for those who admire Magikarp's tenacity in keeping up with Atty out of water.
November 10th, 2014, 10:31 pm
Is it me, or is that a Red/Ash character with a Pikachu on his shoulder and the Red outfit on?
@alanta (Guest)
November 11th, 2014, 5:46 pm
@jameswolf100: I saw that, too. Plus, a *female* Pikachu?
November 10th, 2014, 10:34 pm
A lot of people there, guess the water show still brings them in, huh?
November 11th, 2014, 12:37 am
Looks like someone will give a shit about type-advantages... But... I wonder if the water will boil...
November 11th, 2014, 2:07 am
Looks like George and Atty switched jackets. I wonder what that's about?

Green Wasn't the hoodie green?
November 11th, 2014, 2:59 am

Everyone else is comment on these really insightful artsy thikngs about what could have been mixed up. And all I'm thinking is "the writing on the sign is flipped."
November 11th, 2014, 7:53 am
Atty upgraded to the zora jumper. Except jacket.

Atty is wearing George's jacket and she's wearing his Jumper... this is not my ship!

This cover is way awesome! X3

Wait... Atty's jumper is blue?

Oh Atty. You have a Pikachu and an Oddish, and yet you insist on using Dragonthing. Good luck with the whole "getting publically humiliated" thing. Unless DT suddenly decides to evolve or something.

I'd guess the Gym Leader is a hot lady in a swimsuit, judging from that crowd. Has Misty finally grown up, or will it be another new character? Probably, since this comic has a history with those.

I gotta say it is hilarious to me that Atticus' team consists of a plant type, an electro type, and a fish, and who does he choose to battle the water gym? Dragonthing. Poor, poor Dragonthing.
November 11th, 2014, 2:23 pm
Thas a lot of people watching...
November 11th, 2014, 3:50 pm
Is it just me... Or at the barest glance, does Atticus look like Mega Man?!

My thoughts on the gym leader: Some burly guy in a speedo, because EVERYONE expects some hot thang in a bikini. Calling it now, gents!

Could just be my overactive imagination, but looking at George... Black shirt under the jumper, and the black and white leggings...

Reminds me of a female grunt in Team Rocket.

Also, awesome, freaking cover <3

@Luxnight: I agree. It definitely looks like George was been hiding her R long before Atticus ever got the idea.

It also plays into the opposite-gender pairings that Team Rocket is so fond of, which would make Charmeleon their de-facto mascot.

so tough that - This gym is why I habitually grab grass starters in all other games.

Is it just me imagining it having been a different colour from the start (I imagined it as blue and yellow, to match the jacket) or is George wearing a different colour cap?

I saw Atty's jumper I was at a coffee shop the other day, and there was a little girl wearing her father's brown jumper. I looked at it and immediately thought "that's Atty's!"

I want to buy hard-bound volumes of this once it is done. =(
January 9th, 2015, 1:17 am
There's no accent over the e in Mokepon, unless I'm missing something.
March 6th, 2015, 2:57 pm
what you got wrong maybe that you only gave Rat, the other pikachu and oddish eyes.

is he wearing george's jacket??
July 5th, 2017, 6:13 pm
So George and Atticus switched clothes. George is in Atticus's jumper and Atticus is in Georges sweatshirt.

Ugh, I'm shameless, but I've shipped them since I saw them on the cover of the comic. And I'm hoping by reading this chapter I can get a visualization on how this switcharoo ended up. And I hope, further on, the ship can set sail.

If not, I can always hope. This is fantastic, by the way. I love the darker undertones and the uniqueness of all the characters. It's like they each have their own lives, and not like silly little stand ins who are there for a one-chapter appearance. Since I loved the first gym leader and his girlfriend, I can't wait for this chapter.
