You don't throw pokeballs at pokemon you own. Oh Atty, you so silly. What will happen.

It's different! I was looking at my inked page and decided to attack it with a pencil. That's right, just pen and pencil here boys and girls. Why? Maybe because I was bored... or maybe because over 900 of you beautiful people faved this comic. Thankyou!

This was fun. I feel more comfortable shading than toning. If you guys like it I can keep doing it. See you guys soon.

Orphie: Live fast and die young. That way you get a statue.

Metalicar67: Maaaaybe, who knows (Yes). I suppose it's apparent but it should be noted I'm not too caring of sticking to any great storyline that may have been designed by the pokecrew.

Dark Dragon X80: Haha XD Yeah mebbe... Dragonthing fainted!

Fishuu: Thankyou =3 I'll try keep it up.

Lulumoon: Sweetness. Thanks.

-Belial-: Great XD I like pencils. Pencils are fun.

Youatemycake: Sure thing sis.

Idene: Ooooh who could say (me). It'll become apparent soon lol. I was debating... maybe it looked TOO serious, but serious can be fun in its own ironic way I guess.

Chibi-Animepenguin: In honesty, I never liked Ash. At all. But that's not the only reason I killed the guy off. All will become apparent in due course.

Blue Tomoshibi: Thanks. I'm glad the characters are believable, that's a great compliment. Thanks a lot ^^

The Neroe: Ah I'm glad someone did. Sometimes I put in little jokes that I know aren't exactly real funny but some reason make me laugh.

Seedless-acorn: Sweet XD I likes it too. Boringly, I debated for some time whether to have it read "He wanted to be the very best" or "He wanted to catch them all". What an exciting life you lead, H0ly.

Avengeli: And funnily enough, pencil didn't even take much longer (hate hate hate toning)

BlackCatz: Haha thanks XD I've been doing pencil faaaar longer than pen though. I like shading. Been some time since I've done it though.

Meepa: Hmmm hard to say, but he is known as Ash "The Legend" it seems, so he can't have done too bad.

Lazy-kitsune: Duck and cover! Thanks, I will XD

Crusty_Kris: Cheers! Yeah heh... He must somehow still be expecting his new trainer to be marginally competent. But in Atty's defence it's an easy mistake to make.

Lilly Lane: Sure thing!

Thelonelyhobo173: Will do. Lol, startint to think after so many people like it it would be foolish not to.

Captain Ghost: Heh yeah it does stand out a bit. But I guess that's a good thing! ... Damn, when this gets old I'm gunna have to think of something new...

*Suki*: Why thankyou!

Korbeh: My power levels are through the roof!!

Hyde_n_Psyc: Heh that would be ALL ash needs right now.

Mr Aids: XD

Lol. Thanks for that.

Kitten meat: I'm guessing you don't go on it. Can't please em all.

Akihito: Ohh and I have so many funny deaths to choose from. It'll all come into light in good time.

ApaFox: Haha XD Maybe he went around for so long as ten and suddenly all his age caught up with him in one fell swoop.

Pooppoop: Cheers dude!

Krazeh: o3o I want them to think that. He IS mentally narrating after all. Lol I did play about with changing his face but I liked the grim determination look better.

KittyCHOMP: Thankyou~

PHEW. Reply replying sure takes some time. But I don't mind at all, thanks for all your comments guys!

The pencil shading looks fine. I have no preference. It's kinda cool like this.

Also: sadness on Ash being, y'know, DEAD. At 18. :/

Lol you and your epic pencils. You should have his mouth open in the 5th panel because his face is too similar to the expression in the first panel so its kind of awkward? D= Especially when its a pretty dynamic moment and he's talking alot. People will think he's mentally narrating.

For everyone that's wondering why Ash is dead, I may have a suggestion.

This should explain Ash's demise.

Haha That memorial to Ash is hilarious. I love that he only he lived to be 18, even if he has been 12 years old in the series for a good 11 years now. I'm guessing he didn't become the very best given those mockingly sarcastic quotes. Mock away, quotations. Mock away.

about art Yeah, I got freetime so I re-read this comic... and I know I already posted on this page but I had to add:

I freaking LOVE your drawing. It so sweet, well detailed and Atticus is HAWT (and you even made the pokemons cuter !) and, by the way, the awesomest thing ever is that you called your character Atticus, that totally rocks my socks forever...

Yep... now I feel better... and that was random... anyway :p...

Release time I ran across this series a while back, and I think it has the potential to be quite interesting, the main problem I see is that it releases SO rarely. It's easily a few weeks between each comic, which is a serious turn-off for most web-comic readers. I would suggest bumping up the release time to at least once a week if your wanting it to become popular

It's the end of the academic year. Final pieces of work and the like, getting everything finished. I update as often as I can and in the summer that should be more frequently.

@kupownage:
1. She's not getting paid for you shouldnt complain about release time.
2. This is a POKEMON FANCOMIC so in the end it cant go very far anyway aside from just enjoyment.
3. Its experimental, deal with it.
4. The popular comics on this website update once every 3-4 months on average, so compared to that you really shouldn't complain since the quality is so high and she puts so much effort and work into her stuff.

5. She didn't end school yet and she has finals. So asking her to do comics on top of final projects is like overkill and would kill her overall enjoyment of the work and the quality. Better updated slowly but steady rather than quit it on the spot cuz its no fun anymore.

In the end: Be patient, she's always working and thinking about this comic. You stating that wont speed it up any faster.

Return! Ash is dead? Oh my. Atty gets some resolve! Yea! One day only? Til Nine? Sigh. Resolve is weak. He does realize he's talking to a statue, right? Poor little Dragonthingie, Atticus threw it at him. He's got a good arm, tho.
Pencils too? It looks so nice, I really enjoyed the change. Gorgeous! Lovely page, as always!
