@Del Spaig: If I'm not mistaken, the British spell the noun as "practice" and the verb as "practise", which means it's still be wrong.

@HyperTurtle32: That's another of the differences between American and Standard English. :P

@Someguy: American English IS Standard English. Noah Webster was the first person to create a standardized spelling of the English language.

@Guest: Webster standardized American spelling, in that most people in the US accepted and still use his proposed spelling. And that's all he set out to do - his spelling was never intended for non-American variants of English, though some have adopted it. There is no standards body with legal authority for English though, so there is no actual "Standard English", unlike how there is e.g. Standard Finnish.

The UK has its own set of spellings that are considered acceptable, although they're no more "Standard" than the American spellings, they're just the ones people are used to.


That said, H0ly did spell "practice" in an unusual way. The spelling "practise" is generally used for the verb in the UK, while "practice" is used for nouns. To American eyes it looks very strange because "practise" isn't isn't used in the US at all, while to UK eyes it's just an easy mistake because both forms are current and many people don't realize what the difference is, some see both spellings as acceptable for both the verb and noun. Because both are used, "practise" is as "standard" (in the loose sense of the word) as "practice". That's why I call her spelling "unusual" rather than "wrong".

Apologies for the long comment. It riles me when people treat any regional variation of a language as the "Standard" when it isn't one. There is no Standard English. There are only regional standards/acceptable forms for English, and H0ly happens to write in one that isn't American.

Before I read the alt text I assumed she was supporting herself on Atty's chest. |\

And then he wipes the floor with her like he did everyone else, because she's got a Pidgey and a Rattata and maybe one other Pokemon, none of which have been properly ground up like Atty's 'mon.

@Browser: Atty's getting saved by the bill of George's baseball cap. When combined with a height advantage, that helps keep a minimum distance between his mouth and hers.

In other words, if H0ly ever decides to turn that cap backwards... ;D

Now just you watch, Atty is going to beat George. Then George is going to pass out and Atty is going to have to drag her back to the city.

I believe he is going through his power obsession phase. I really like that look in his eyes in panel 4.

Since she's challenging someone with weakened Pokemon, does that mean Gabe will come back to kick her ass if she beats him ?
