And it becomes a little more apparent why Atty hasn't been caught yet.

Quite a few people have been very open in telling me they didn't like this chapter. That's fine. It's all a big learning experience and I do think the next chapter will be better; I'm looking forward to it. This one did serve a purpose, which should hopefully become more apparent over the course of the comic.

I hope you don't mind, but... I'm gunna take a lil' week break before the next chapter. Don't worry, this isn't about to become a frequent thing, it's just that I haven't taken a break in a looong time, and I've been told it'd be good for me. The comic'll be updated again next week, on the Friday. I hope to see you there!

See y'all soon.

Thats one gifted turtle!

I thought this chapter was great, seemed to me it was setting things up, and love the humour you put in the series. :)

Also, enjoy the break H0ly, you deserve it.

Is that who I think it is? Please tell me all Atty's crimes are getting blamed on Gary Mother F'n Oak. That would just be amazing.

Enjoy your break!

I dunno that this chapter was bad... The couple before it were uncommonly awesome tho. Personally I do this weird anxiety thing when viewpoint characters get in trouble, so the whole tension of the wanted/stealing things on atty's part was a bit unfun. But I don't think that'd be typical of your average reader...

I really liked this chapter to be honest (like all of them) and I really liked it's building up to something in Atty's past, I can't want to see what's going to happen in the next chapter :)

Nice Chapter I figure as an artist, you've learned to handle critique and take it in stride, but I feel like most complaints were probably misguided.
I imagine that they didn't like the chapter for the Openly-Mocking-Atty thing. I don't mind it, because even if the scene itself was poor for Atty, it was a good way to create emotion, which is a nice goal for storytelling. Plus, it was so human. If a smug trainer (how people saw Atty) was making poor mistakes, then serious'd up and said they knew what they were doing, then threw out a freakin magikarp,I'd probably laugh too. It wasn't purely mean-spirited of them (besides the champ).

And it was at this moment that Artemis starts banging her head against the table. It took all of the squirtle squad and a dewgong to subdue the gym leader.

I didn't hate that chapter. The characters were assholes yeah, but just because what happened was terrible, doesn't mean it wasn't well written. The assholes were consistent assholes, and the protagonist's reaction was very realistic. Humiliation and shame aren't good motivators, and I hate when stories pretend that they are. Breaking down like he did was a much more genuine and human response to that kind of painful experience, and I think you are a good writer for realizing that. :)


Also, I want that squirtle to be my mentor now.

... The complaints are probably because there wasn't enough destruction in that chapter compared to the others. I liked it. It had a lot of humor (Gyrados and the ship sinking would be really cool though). :) Nice work!

Looks a bit too young to be an adolescent, by a few years, though that's probably just me. (Looks around 10-ish at best, and adolescents = teens.)

I thought this chapter was okay. Maybe a bit uneventful I suppose.

I really liked this chapter, as much as the others. Actually, I specially like the chapters where George doesn't appear very much. I think I can relate to Atty in this point.

I have been enjoying this chapter. And the incompetent police, LOL! I hope you havve a nice break!

Also H0ly, I've been trying to go back and read Mokepon from the beginning, and it seems like just about every other page, at least for the first chapter, the image won't load (particularly the first 3 pages). I have tried this with my phone too, and I was wondering if it is just my internet connection, or if the image links have been broken somehow. Just thought you should know, thanks! (I'll try again on another wi-fi when I get the chance)

I was really hoping the Squirtle would just draw Artemis and Jenny would immediately take this as a sign of guilt.

Don't know what you're talking about there, the chapter was awesome. Felt bad for Atty being such a bad trainer though. Loved how all of the other characters were so anime-accurate, including useless and oblivious. Perf.

I think the chapter was incredible.

It gave us tons of insight on what the gym leaders are like.

Gave us some hints about the gym family reputation being a thing.

And a LOT about the Feraligator dude and Atty when faced with conflict.

Honestly this sort of drama is necessary for character development and growth lol.

Unless you prefer a stagnant story with one dimensional characters of course.

It's not that the CHAPTER is bad. It's that you're very good at writing, and that includes assholes. nobody likes seeing thier favorite character getting bullied and kicked around for no reason. but the fact that we were getting emotional is what proves that you're really freaking good. The writing, the art, the story, EVERYTHING continued the constant improvement you so obviously strive for. I still loved reading it, I just didn't love the a lot of the characters. yeah, we hate the bad guys. we're kinda supposed to XD It's like in harry potter when snape teaches him to guard his mind. it was needed and good, but that doesn't mean I was laughing and cheering about snape being an asshole XD

I think it's just that we saw so much of them. a solid half year of atty getting ripped apart from every angle does make me glad for a breath of fresh air. still, it was a good chapter.

You know, even though Artemis wasn't a very nice person when we were introduced to her, I feel the misplaced arrest and also these few pages make her seem more sympathetic. Sure, she has a short fuse and doesn't seem the biggest fan of children (which kind of makes me question her career choice), but she's also one of the saner characters in this comic. I hope we'll see her again in the future :)

Hey, I *loved* last chapter! There was so much to like about it.

The gym leader drama was confusing and overwhelming -- which was exactly how Atty must have been feeling. The characterization that showed there was depth without revealing it all, the way that Atty was so filled with determination and then proven how useless it was -- excellent job.

And then there's the art. Hooo boy. Part of me wishes that the comic was nothing but battle scenes, having seen how you portrayed them. Hella intense.

Probably one of my favorite chapters, to be honest.

I quite enjoyed this last chapter. It was funny and we saw some character development, so that's all good.

You could tell there was some set-up for later points, such as the introduction of a lot of secondary characters. The story felt a little slower, but that could again just be the set-up and the length of the chapter. By no means, however, was it uninteresting. If anything, I'm even more revved up for what I assume will be the payoff in the coming chapters.

Keep up the good work :)

I didn't "hate" this chapter per say. I just find it annoying on a personal level the way that so far, almost everyone who has been a dick to Atty has been getting away with it. I guess its kind of childish for me to say, but I want bad things to happen to mean people, and so far the only "bad" things have been happening solely to Atty, and this chapter really seemed to emphasize that.

Great Chapter Don't sweat it much H0ly. This last chapter wasn't the happiest but should we expect it to be? It was probably the chapter filled with the least amount of humor like some of your older chapters. This chapter however had more human element to it.
