Don't worry, Atty, George just needs to get Dragonthing into this microw- POKEMON TRANSPORTER, then everything will be all okay.

"You just didn't try hard enough"

That's just so infuriating. He tried, just not in a way you approved of. This is just "thoughts and prayers," George. Grow a spine.

Ehhhhhh...

aw fudge George... you almost had it, and then you had to say that to him.

You know how much of a bitter cynical person Atty is. Telling him cheesy crap is only gonna piss him off and make him want to shove George's face into reality and the fact that he was threatened with a gun

Atty: Now hurry up and throw out your last pathetic catch phase so I can end this George!

George: My brain and its positive outlook on life has no pathetic catch phrases Atty, but it does have the unstoppable...Strength of heart!

Atty: Euugh! Impossible!!!

George: Power of friendship, Obliterate!

Atty ain't the calm and thinking type, I mean yeah he does think, but not like that. Might have to elaborate a bit and avoid friendship speeches.

Honestly the biggest thing here is George saying things like "I don't think you deserve her" And stuff, when it's been made pretty clear that she has literally hundreds if not thousands of pokemon in cold storage that she caught and forgot. Atty might be hard to please and not particularly affectionate, but his pokemon have earned his love and he relies on them bc of it. He appreciates each of them (Excluding Fish) and even said he felt 4 pokemon was almost excessive. While George seems to swap teams like outfits. I think that's smth that would dig extra deep in this situation. She ACTS like she's nice, and she THINKS she loves her pokemon. In reality her behavior is also pretty problematic, but also often her BS is fueled by a moral highground that applies almost solely to her. Maybe I'm just losing it here but that's what kills me. Is because to her there's always another pokemon to catch, no matter how much she "loves" the ones she has they simply don't have bonds, but for Atticus There's only one Dragonthing and if he loses her there's no getting that back.

Some people just want things, while others build bonds. He may not have set out to be like that but he has become the latter. While George is definitely the former with her level of pokehoarding

@Caprine: Another example would be during the battle with Atticus, the only one that seemed to be bonded with her at all (through prior mentionings) was Pid-Pid. And Dux the Farfetch'd Wanted next to nothing to do with her and there was really no bond between them. She did say that she had just gotten him. Even so though SHE was the one to KO him. You almost never see George's pokemon either. It's kind of bizarre, that someone for who is so obsessed with these pokemon morals of friendship and teamwork and Pokemon spirit and stuff, she doesn't seem to actually acknowledge or abide by any of them herself but expects Everyone else or at least Atticus to. Especially as she almost solely treats them as tools. I've even theorized to some degree that she's essentially the Player character of this world, because she acts more like someone playing the game than a real person who says they want to be a pokemon master.

i'm sorry I can't take this statement seriously when a couple pages ago he was un-ironically saying people deserved to have their pokemon stolen/kidnapped cause they're dumb with out even considering what the pokemon he's kidnapping are gonna go through.
dude only cares about his own and nothing else.

like Georges statement here is memey but it isn't any worse than what atty said just a couple of pages ago.

@WildDaft: You're 100% right he only cares about himself and his pokemon. He has however been forced into a corner. He's not pretending that he's doing something right or whatever, he knows he's being a POS. He also has made it pretty clear throughout the comic that he hardly thinks of pokemon outside of his own as living things, hell he hardly thinks this of the people who aren't George or Khan or w/e. I'm not saying that justifies it but with that thought process, stealing other people's pokemon, especially from people he considers to be assholes, to save the one thing he actually cares about isn't a hard choice to make. Dragonthing vastly outweighs them in his mind.

Tbh also, this isn't too abnormal a thought process. If you heard something bad happened to someone else, you would naturally sympathize and feel bad for them. However if these random people that you'll never see again and that you think are assholes are the only thing standing in the way of you getting the only thing you want in life. Of course you're more likely to choose the thing you want over the wants of some random people you'll never see again and who have actively treated you poorly. It might not be the nicest thing in the world but it isn't exactly uncommon or even all that strange.

@Caprine: this is a significantly different version of Atty than what you said in your OP. the OP version seems like a dude who's kinda an ass but if you manage to build a bond with him he's actually a good dude. this one however is, as you said, and actual piece of shit that only cares about him self. he probably still only sees all pokemon (including his precious dragonite) as things. and he only cares about hose things as long as they can directly benefit him. anything that doesn't directly help him might as well be dead. and god help those things get in his way.

my main issue is that you seemed to be painting him in a way better light than he actually deserves or is even in. and at the same time throwing shade a george. the dude sounds way worse than george.

This is not a plan ffs, you can't call that a plan.
You can't say "Be strong", "be fast" or "be smart" as means to solve a problem. These are tools not plans.
This is like saying "Have a screwdriver" as a means to fix a television. You can't just apply screwdriver to TV and expect it to work!

You had the moral high ground for five minutes George aaaaand you lost it. Good freaking gravy, girl. There's a difference between standing up for what's right and putting yourself in the place of judge and jury when you have no idea what happened. You can show conviction AND mercy at the same time, y'know. Looks like Atty isn't the only one who needs a good knock on the noggin (technically Atty already got his so at least the list isn't any longer!)

@Guest: I agree! Especially since she really has no concept of what happened at all. It would be the same as if she hadn't stopped Atticus and was really tricked and then when she told the pokemon fanclub people he'd stolen their pokemon and they said "you didn't try hard enough" or smth. She doesn't have any clue what she's talking about

@Guest: Yeah, I also hate it when people do this. Like, sometimes no matter how hard you try, it won't be good enough. I'm not saying hardwork is meaningless, I'm saying sometimes it isn't enough. And people like George don't understand that.

She might be applying the Just World Phenomenon here, or something very similar to it.

I'm pretty sure George means, "Didn't Try hard enough" in a moral way instead of simply resorting to stealing pokemon.

Like, does Atty not realize he can just CATCH pokemon? I'm pretty sure this is what George means but she's so innocently blunt that it comes off as scathing idiocy.

THere's a REALLY simple solution this.

SO, nah, Atty's got a way out of this. IT's not like Brad (Is that his name, I know his sis is named Trix) is around to monitor him.

Literally, just get the pokemon and skip that shit.

HEll, while he's an asshole, Brad might actually just let him go. THat or give him another assignment before Trix hears about it.

Atty can say a lot of things about George's naive outlook. And she can ask how short-term cynicism is working out for him.

Can I just say that I really can't stand George. She's annoying and clearly not the sharpest tool in the shed, her "optimism" Is usually used to take a dig at Atticus in one way or another. She's always talking about how mean or rude or evil or just in general not good he is. Which Yeah he's clearly not the best guy, he's selfish and got tricked into Team rocket. Still I'm really tired of seeing her ride around on her high horse and being toxic towards him but telling him it's his fault when really half the time she's one of the biggest obstacles he has to overcome in this comic. I still can't get over how she has to pick and prod all his insecurities too like with Fish and the Sketch pad incident

I really like seeing Atticus grow, but George is such a drag in this comic. I kind of hope he ditches her after all this...

There’s no way Atty can be said to be worse than George. Sure, she’s pleasant, but she has horded thousands of Pokémon in cold storage. And her ethics are based on fantasy. It’s only a mater of time until we see her hurt someone with those ideals.

She isn’t naïve, she’s willfully ignorant.
