Well to be fair, he didn't really intend for all that to happen, things just snowballed a bit, and it was either stay silent and walk away or get arrested

That's true, but Atty did know he was getting into something criminal when he joined Team Rocket. And now someone innocent is paying the price for him. Several innocents, in fact

@Sagan: I LOVE that term. Innocent. Innocent of what, exactly? Innocent of terrible behaviour? Innocent of intelligent decisions? Innocent of being bullied? Innocent of being powerful? Innocent of having morality and/or decency? Innocent of understanding and possessing the ablity to properly relate to the bizarre and, quite frankly, insane behaviour of others?

Innocent. How ridiculous that entire concept is. ESPECIALLY when its turned from an adjective into a noun.

@Guest: "Innocent" as in "innocent of being a Rocket". I would have thought that was obvious

@Sagan: To be fair, innocents have been paying for Atty's actions/stupidity for a long time before he ever became a Rocket. Doth thou recall the Veridian Forest?

I love Kirst's face when Luke corrects her.

I wonder if Luke is short for something cause I've never heard of a girl named Luke before.

Edit: I wish we got to see Atty's face when Luke said it wasn't his fault Artemis got locked up.

@Ultimate the Hedgehog: LOL. That's what I thought too!!!

I think it's just safe from now on to assume with H0ly's comic that if it looks like a guy, has a name like a guy, it probably isn't a guy. See: George.

Also. It's mighty inclusive of Sprout Scouts to not differentiate based on gender.

You know, now I'm curious. Could Gabe be involved with Team Rocket somehow? It's not too far fetched, given his enigmatic characteristic. This is just pure conjecture, of course...

So when some guy decides to pick on your girlfriend, you ask your sister to beat him up for you?

Very mainly.

@Caio: when did H0ly ever say that Kirst and Laika are siblings? i know she's related to Artemis, if i remember correctly, but nothing about Kirst being anything other than a fellow gym leader (from Gabe's comment about not having any badges left, i don't think his dragons are very competent though, lol)

@Guest: Gabe referred to "two Reubens" while talking to Kirst and Laika, it's safe to assume he meant them. H0ly has also stated that Laika and Kirst are Reubens on her Tumblr, if you want a "word of god" answer.

@eishiya: thank you for pointing that out, i have never looked into the Tumblr page until just now. as for Gabe, i guess i misread that part, and looking back at it now, it makes sense.

Thirded, had no idea Luke was a girl.

That's..cool I guess. A second George I suppose. Definitely a trend in this world.

When Kirst referred to Luke as a girl I was like "Ok I'm gonna need a chart to know whose who in the pokemon league/gym leaders cause I'm really confused!"

Atty definitely used that Dig TM on himself. That hole he's made for himself just keeps getting deeper.

To be fair, though, he's only indirectly responsible for that locking up thing. It was George's idea to frame her. Her hot temper didn't do her any favors, either.

GENDERCEPTION Don't feel bad guys, Atty didn't know either:

And the sad part is, neither Kirst NOR Luke corrected him, lol


First George, then Dragonthing, now Luke...
H0ly clearly just likes messin' with Atty (and us) when it comes to genders.
I'm betting Atty's as confused as we are.

Ha-haha ha ha haaa! Oh silly Kirst, how can Atty be responsible for what happened to Artemis. I mean it's not like... or that... well, actually all he did was challenge her to a match and refused to give back the badge after winning it. She called cops and went berserk when fish ate the badge. If anything, it was all due to circumstance, Artemis not wanting to wait for officer Jenny to confiscate the badge and officer Jenny herself.

Starting to wonder if all the gym leaders were hired because they were all members of the same family or something.

So, Luke is a girl. George, also a girl.

Is this like, a commentary on how names that were female in the past are now male, so in this post-apocalyptic Pokemon universe there was a shift in the opposite direction?

@Professional Mole: A lot of names that used to be male are now either female or unisex. Examples of this include Ashley, Robin, Addison, Lindsay, Whitney, Beverly and Lauren. If anything, I'd say the writer is just following the trend to its logical conclusion.

To also be fair, while Artemis is not a rocket she did engage in petty theft. She hasn't a leg to stand on.

I think I just figured out why H0ly keeps making girl trainers look a lot like guys. It's because in the first game you could only select a male protagonist and most of the child trainers were also male. So H0ly is making the joke that half of them were girls and their parents just sucked at naming them.

@Unessecary: That doesn't make any sense, only gym leaders had names in gen 1 and 3 of the 8 were girls. Plus there was a decent amount of female trainers: Lass, Beauty, Jr. TrainerŠ, Channeler and Cooltrainer.

truth! He may have been there, but quite frankly it WAS Aremis's own fault she got locked up...Atty wasn't doing anything Rockety, just a normal gym battle in which the leader tried to steal his badge! No big deal or anything!

So he really didn't have anything to do with her arrest...the irony~~ haaaaaaaaahahahaha

George is a girl, Luke is a girl. I'm noticing a trend here. I'm just going to assume every character that hasn't been given pronouns yet is female.

Either that or Pokemon Professors are really liberal when they enter preteens' dreams to assign names and genders.
