I guess we all know where this is going :) Next page Atty falls on top of her and George comes in to find them getting jiggy with it.

Quick! Take off the shirt and jumper, have Dragonthing burn them, and then go jump in the pool, then no one will be able to prove anything!

(Or instead of jumping in the pool, continue to argue with the gym leader until the police arrive and claim she's harassing you)

@ThePokeman92: Dragonthing basically died. I think Atty's going to have to rely on some-mon else this time.

@Covarr: Rooster Teeth. lol

I agree with the falling, but first they trip over Fish, which makes him evolve and blow up the gym with dragon rage as the police arrives. :D

So either they scuffle to the ground and George walks in to see them in a precarious position, or poor Fish gets stepped on, and Gyarados fills the entire room.

Atty used Apathy!
It was super effective!
Artemis is enraged!
Atty doesn't care!

Either way, this can only end with a big-ass Gyarados destroying things.

Hey! No refunds! Once you hand over the badge it's Atty's forever!
March 25th, 2015, 7:11 pm
I like when you don't add certain part of their faces. I use the opportunity to imagine all sorts of silly options.
March 25th, 2015, 7:25 pm
If I don't get a gyrados by the time he's outta this gym, I shall be VERY dissapoint. >:(
March 25th, 2015, 9:00 pm
Hey! not cool! When you give something away it's not yourself anymore, you can't demand it back! >:C
March 25th, 2015, 9:02 pm
Magikarp will save the day!
March 25th, 2015, 9:05 pm
So is the Magikarp's name officially fish now?
March 25th, 2015, 9:16 pm
Magikarp is gonna fricken kill her.

My guess is the Oddish's Stun Spore comes to the rescue again. That or Rat gets his moment of glory.

@(Guest): Rat must never get a moment of glory!

And he thought he could kill time at the gym while the police cooled their heels. Blending in? He should've gotten rid of the uniform.
March 25th, 2015, 10:30 pm
As George Takei would say: Ohhhhh, Myyyyy!
March 25th, 2015, 10:35 pm
most likely: Atty runs for it, he and George book it towards the Rocket HQ, and they barely escape. also lots of Squirtles.
March 25th, 2015, 10:46 pm
"Heck no! Ash Ketchum get's to win badges with 'the power of friendship,' but my Pokémon and I almost DROWN, and you expect me to just hand the thing over?!"

Granted, Atty himself is slowly being converted into a shounen anime "power of friendship and cooperation" kind of mentality. I blame George.

So, he officially won the challenge that she laid out for him. Wouldn't it be against the rules for her to take it back, regardless of whether he's a criminal or not?

Is there some kinda rule that people belonging to criminal organizations can't participate in the League challenge?
March 26th, 2015, 1:44 am
@SVM: I think the point of her comments is that, as an answer to your question, "It is." The thing though? She doesn't care. She just doesn't want a member of Team Rocket holding a badge (proving she got beat by Team Rocket).
March 26th, 2015, 1:47 am
And gym destruction commences in 10... 9... 8...

Also, I legitimately would not be terribly surprised if this leads to Atticus's second party member/first gym leader member. He will escape, and he will not give her the badge, and she will not stop trying to take the badge. Also her gym will probably be destroyed. So we could get a grudging (and eventually friendly, maybe) tagalong out of this. Which I wholeheartedly approve of. I actually think they have great chemistry together (not in that way!) and would like to see more interaction. She's even the Cerulean leader, so it's perfect!

Honestly, before her dramatic unzipping I was half expecting her to try to pawn the gym leader position off to him because it's clearly an awful job. But this is better.
March 26th, 2015, 4:00 am
oh snap @MrZAP: you know this really sounds like Misty now, wanting her badge, being the gym leader etc. well I guess the upside is that she isn't as annoying as Misty was.

I like fish, such a splendid personality that he doesn't need to speak to show it off! Or was fish female? I don't recall it being brought up.... ALL THE SAME FISH IS THE BEST! NEVER CHANGE, FISH!

Move bitch! Get out the way! Get out the way!

I can kind of empathize with Artemis here, I mean who wants to be known as the Gym leader who lost to a Team Rocket Grunt?

I mean those guys do nothing but stare at walls all day!

I really can't see how Atty will get out of this one without either physically beating down a friggin' Gym Leader or destroying the entire Gym by having Fish evolve. Looks like this will end badly no matter what happens next. Even if he by some miracle manages to escape, he can never show his face in Cerulean City again. I also wouldn't count on his Rocket teammates helping him out if he gets caught. Poor guy, he should have known better than to join TR in the first place.

A thought If he's not actively wanted for anything (as in, a name and a face AND a crime, not just a vague description) and doesn't have anything on him that would count as evidence, then can they actually hold him? Right now all they have to go on is a gym leader accusing him of... what, wearing a Rocket uniform, and that's it? Wearing clothes isn't illegal, you know, no matter how ill tasting it is.

Clean record, no warrants, no evidence = no crime. Now if only George has the good sense to not get popped.
March 26th, 2015, 1:47 pm
every page just makes me hate her more and more ;_;

Random thought: What if the police stumble into this situation, with the Gym leader trying to STEAL back a rightfully earned gym badge?

Could Artemis end up being the one arrested here?

I mean, she would have been caught in the act, and Atty isn't wearing the same thing as the description (Even had the sense to re zip up the hoody)
Nurylon (Guest)
March 26th, 2015, 5:38 pm
Well I just re-read some of the battle pages and noticed that Atty's jumper zipper revealed the top of his shirt's 'R' after he saved Dragonthing from the water, which is when the Golduck started going crazy about attacking 'im
Didn't see that before, that's cool. Explains the sudden conscience. Someone probably already said that in the comments somewhere, though
March 26th, 2015, 6:04 pm
And thus the misty effect. "I won't leave until you give me back my bike/badge"

Cue George. "I knew she wanted to get jiggy with it!"
March 26th, 2015, 8:49 pm
People also seem to be hung up on the idea of Fish evolving and destroying the gym. I would think that it would be much funnier to have:
A. Fish still not evolve and continue to be useless and
B. have it be the still energetic and ready to fight RAT that destroys it... and then gets blamed for it/continues to be underappreciated by Atticus despite it.

I mean, Rat is still essentially an electric bomb waiting to go off in that pool.

well the Magikarp is here to tackle her then Atticus goes on the run with a bag of badges and a gym leaders pokemon for team rocket
March 26th, 2015, 10:52 pm
*accidental kiss*
March 27th, 2015, 6:13 am
That magikarp is looking real conspicuous, I'm thinking it's gonna evolve.
Then again, it doesn't have much exp - it might just be a... red herring.

Are we going to get an anime moment where she falls on him and then george walks in? (george is the girl, right?)
