Another Oak, another icon. Seems to be the way of it.

... Oh! Would you look at that. It's got colours and stuff on it. Theres a couple of reasons for this but I'll just make it easy and say it's cuz I Love You Guys. Thanks for the support and all that, nearly 500 fans... etc. I know I'm not at 500 yet and saying I might could be considered somewhat presumptious, but I kinda missed out 400 and later I might not be in the mood.

Not impressed with coloured pages for milestones? It could have been worse. I could have followed SJ tradition and instead upon hitting 500 post a pic of atty in the nude and looking scared, tied up in a compromising position and a mature rating slapped on the page.

Nah. That's the kinda thing you save for the thousand, surely.



*Gives keyboard a light bash* The day they add a 'sarcasm' button to these things will be a good day.

So yeah, hope you guys like it.

Rhie: It's a mystery... Nope, this comic has not been redone, it is (relatively) new. Deja-vu, perhaps? Or maybe the concept of it invaded your subconscious...

Or maybe it's a different comic. Ah well, glad ur happeh.

phantom_aura: Aye, I've been trying to keep this comic QUITE clean... Not only because of the mature rating but my sister reads it.

BK_1/VGKid: Oh Oak. You're so photogenic.

Kat/dog?: I'm not one to stick religiously to a style- I am very easily bored and I just try to make things look the best I can. So expect more style changes along the way... some large, some small.

Dune: Thanks =3 Well I like to keep the colour pages pretty scarce, I think it does make 'em jump out nicer when they do come about.

And they're a bitch for time, but thats not supposed to bother me.


Aileena-Marusaki: Crazy. It must be. And how absurd that anyone should accuse me of taking such an oppurtunity to write peculiar messages.

DragonHat: Sugar coating ain't Atty's way...

Yinyangkitty: See Krazeh's post, she's absolutely right. ... But then again I suppose who would I be to give things away.

zkrazydog: *sniff* Always there when I need you...

Endz Beat: The boy speaks the truth!!! ... It's just not very nice.

SientJuhna: Cheers =3 I was rather dubious myself.

Bard: Wow I'm glad XD Thankyou

Onecoolc: Whats that you say? I can't help it if what Oak said may have jumbled words together to give what might seem to be messages.

... *cough* There are three more *cough cough*

Natacia: Wow D= and they said I'd never find love just sitting around drawing comics all day. Thankyou!

Angel-likeInsanePoets: Thanks for letting me know you're enjoying it ^^ Makes me happy to hear.

Kat/dog: Come now Katdog, Dune has done nought wrong, one is completely entitled to comment as a guest. But about the last panel, as much as I hate to say it I'm inclined to agree. But I don't think it's that it zoomed in too far... Eye close-ups can work. I just didn't pull it off very well sad to say.

Phew long reply again... Either I need to tackle these things earlier or I gotta stop being so damn talkative. Thanks for commenting!

Avoid SJ traditions at all costs :l
Also: holy shite, I love this comic. I found it a loooong time ago (maybe it wasn't that long ago, I forget) but I deleted my other account, but I have FOUND IT AGAIN.
I yam happee.

Edit: 18th of September? Wha... then why is this so familiar from the days of my other account...? Did you repost o_O
I'm probably confusing this with something else. Eh :l
January 21st, 2009, 7:19 pm
lol this is definitly a goood 500 celebration :) the mature rating is annoying; u have to click more buttons on a comp that is already slow =_=;; or maybe it's just me internet is slow... lol the oak icons are boss
January 21st, 2009, 7:25 pm
Crazy Oak Icons are awesome awesome and hilarious. Yeah Attic you tell 'im! >=D
January 21st, 2009, 8:04 pm
HOLY SHIT! what happened to the style you made everyone's face different! (except oak THANK GOD!) if you're experamenting and waiting for someone to say sumthin' i say ...okay i guess..

Oooh, kat/dog? if you're implying that the quality's gone down, I'll... I'll verbally abuse you! (...*basks in my lameness*)

Though honestly, it's not as if the change in style jumped out from the bushes or something. It's been pretty gradual. ...Unless its the color you're referring to--it certainly jumped out at me, but only in the good way like a bunch of people ambushing you on your birthday and accidentally knocking you over.

Color gooood.
January 21st, 2009, 8:37 pm
yup, dogfighting + warm and fuzzy morals = Pokemon

also, colored pages > SJ tradition
January 21st, 2009, 8:49 pm
Lol. Either I am going crazy or I caught those little notes you threw in Oak's rant. Amazing job, love it.
January 21st, 2009, 8:51 pm
Well, if you say it like that...
January 21st, 2009, 8:59 pm
i really want to know sorry about that! Any way I love your story but I was wondering if the guy who got squirtle is going to chase after atticus and either force him to be friends or gay which ever just wondering. Also is there oing to be a talkin pickatchu (Spelled wrong ugh!) cause that would be asewome especially if sarcastic!
January 21st, 2009, 9:55 pm
@YingYangkitty: I probably shouldn't say anything cuz this comic is solely in the hands of h0ly, but i assure you "the squirtle dude" is not gay.
Just becuz Atty and the other dude are men, and this is pokemon, does not mean they're gay.

anyway back to comment. D= Holy crap, That Oak is awesome. WIN.

For some reason, I can't help but agree with Atticus. >_O
January 22nd, 2009, 11:11 am
Atticus makes a point! WIN.

Also, his face in the fourth panel is nicely done.

This is just... amazing.
January 22nd, 2009, 6:10 pm
"You know I didn't actually intend you to read all this" x3

Oak makes me laugh. >.<
January 22nd, 2009, 6:11 pm
...... I love you.
January 23rd, 2009, 5:35 pm
I normally just lurk, but I need to post.
This is amazing. The idea is very unique and the characters' actions are entertaining to watch. ^^
January 23rd, 2009, 5:50 pm
sorry for late comeback but stop it Dune your a guest dont abuse it abuse it when yr parents allow you to make an account (unlees yr over 18) but something just aint't right...... oh the EYES of the other dude who won bulbasuar TO MUCH OF A CLOSE UP!
January 23rd, 2009, 10:53 pm
Kat/Dog: Seriously, quit while your ahead. Whether its a guest or not is no business of yours, and its not like Dune is flaming her anonymously.
I don't see anything wrong with this page aside from that the inking can be a lil tighter but that's it.

Ur comments are getting annoying as of late. Srsly. Cut it out. Also the faces didn't change that much, Plus h0ly uses a various scale of expressions so I don't get what your getting at. You make it sound like stylistic changes are a bad thing. Its a WEBCOMIC and a FAN WEBCOMIC for that matter, its obviously used for experimentation.
January 24th, 2009, 7:42 am
FINE!!! ... but you said "flaming her" "xkrazydog" ..... if you made a misstake i take that but IM A BOY!!!!! no girl the difference is ******************
yes i have a high voice (so when i say llllaaaaaaaaaaaaaaike i say it high but not too high!)
January 24th, 2009, 9:26 am
See? There you go again. Chill the **** out. And when i meant by "Flaming her" I meant Flaming HOLY not you. Because some anonymous guests tend to flame people while keeping themselves concealed.

Dune only defended h0ly. Just get to the point of your post and stop spamming this page. Seriously.
January 24th, 2009, 9:01 pm
All right, people, calm down. There's no need to get into a flaming war over something so small.

Also: I butt in because I have a point. Arguing in comments meant for everyone is ASKING for people to butt in, so don't do the whole "it ain't yer business" thing on me.

Just let it lie, already. None of this is a big deal and BOTH of you are spamming up this comic.
January 26th, 2009, 5:46 am
nifty comic you have here, finally someone else who sees how cynical and sadistic, the shugar coated world of pokemon is.
keep it up, it's very promising so far
January 26th, 2009, 7:01 am
Sorry for any missunderstandment i have read IN A BOOK (woah) that there is alot of miisunderstandment alover they should really put e-motes (i have e-motes too ya know! T-T ) plus i totaly saight out the fact to look at holy's gender! sorry it was the avatar that got me!
January 28th, 2009, 9:31 pm
Ha! You don't have to leave the house for anything these days, espescially to find love!!
Haha =]
January 29th, 2009, 6:53 am

February 2nd, 2009, 10:06 pm
My god I freakin LOVE the way you draw Oak!!! XD
July 14th, 2009, 5:38 am
Lol, I love how "Why am I so lonely" is put in the middle of the speech...
December 19th, 2009, 5:34 pm
awww, pretty!! I love your colouring style! your drawing style too! It's very purdy....poor charamander!! Omg, i was ready to die laughing! it's like 'what's he doing!that poor creature!! how can he just stand there!' and yeah...i love it. ^_^ Keep it up!!
January 29th, 2010, 10:33 pm
I just had to comment on the monstrosity that is OAK'S JAGGED FINGERNAIL

Sheesh! Men!


i bet you that's why i commented in the first place 'cause otherwise I have NOTHING TO SAY AND THIS WAS POINTLESS

Your comic is awesome. I'm ttly playing Diamond right now, you made me want to.
March 27th, 2010, 12:31 pm
I actually read the whole thing that Oak said. XD
April 28th, 2010, 11:50 pm
I love how it says in the background "You know I didn't actually intend you to read all this", "Why am I so lonely" and "This looked better as [a] thumbnail" XD
May 19th, 2010, 3:43 am
suddenly, oak's my fave character >.<

Surely Atticus is right. Khan even admits maybe. Khan was a stinkin' monster. Oak has excuse he's crazy. Khan didn't stop match earlier just cause he likes making pokemon cry.
December 17th, 2010, 6:32 pm
I love the subliminal message in the background. "You want to comment."
December 26th, 2010, 8:36 pm
You want to comment Indeed I do. And regardless of whether you wanted me to read all of that background... I did. And I think it looks just as amazing as the thumbnail (that I have never seen because I do not stalk you at night >.>)
March 27th, 2011, 11:53 am
you know I didn't actually intend for you to read all this.
Why am I so lonley?
This looked better as a thumbnail.
LOL!!! I'm diggin the proffesor Oak background XD
April 3rd, 2011, 8:25 pm
You sure like brown, don't ya? xD

Atticus: The missionary who spreads the 'truth' of pokemon battles.
June 26th, 2011, 1:21 pm
Savage! I love the words bomb with Oak. Especially the writing behind it. You didn't intend for us to read this? But I'm having so much fun with it! Pokemon totally does have them fighting each other. Ahh, the good ol days when I used to cry cause my pokemon was Ko'ed. I thought it died. Good times. Good times. Yea, the whole 'friendship' thing is just for the mothers. I find it completely adorable that Atticus says 'Mummys'.
Pretty pretty colors. That's a great way for a milestone! You have completely scarred me for life with the image of Atticus in a comprising position. That's just traumatizing. Saving for the thousand? Oh sarcasm, what a lovely thing. I have a feeling that button would be sorely abused, tho. Love the page!
November 17th, 2011, 3:06 am
hey Is it just me, or after the first pokemon game that ya'll played, did anyone ever want to punch the professers when they did they're whole explination schpeal?
July 12th, 2013, 7:10 pm
Oak I love how bat shit crazy professor Oak is in this manga XD
