After pushing through the end of school rush and birthday celebrations, I bring you this page. Yeah, there's no pencil. I'm a pretty unfaithful artist- If I do one technique for too long I get bored of it. And I do so love ink as much as I love pencil. I wonder... If inking rather than pencil shading means I could dish out double the updates, would you prefer that?

Don't get between him and his cigarettes. Just... don't. Unless you're as big as Colin. Says something about him that Atty would rather perform a ridiculous task for his cigarettes than take him on.

Birthday done. School's more or less finishing for the year. Christmas is coming. Huzzah!

Replies to all and to all a good night!

Mr Aids: Thanks! It was an... interesting day xD And I don't know about stealing from Colin- his hands looks about the size that could crush Atty's head like a pudding.

BlackCatz: He is huge. I must endeavour to write more huge people. They're much fun.

Sepheris: Makes me think, how the hell was he going to get that package to him if no one from Pallet town turned up?

Blitzn'Burst: Why thankyou =D I'm an oooold lady now.

Flashwatch: My birthday can only delay my update it shall never stop it ;D

Pat15: Some psychic powers I guess... That dude will forever say 'Say hi to proffesor Oak for me!' until he actually gets the blasted thing.

Peanutbutterpancakes: I like the pencil too... But this isn't to say I won't ever go back to doing it. I just think more people would rather have more story than slightly prettier art.

Marly: My work here is done ;D

Taboo: Thankyou very much =D I hope to continue to please.

Amante-kun: Thanks XD I must admit. I do love inking. It's so clean, pretty, and.... faster. (Inking takes FOREVER so this just shows how long shading takes)

Jazeki: Thanks! Soemthing nearer twice a week would be fun I think if I can manage it. I want to get through the story too X3

Mythee: It was a weird one XD; Deadling day at school so the night before I couldn't go to bed at all as I was working on my infernal project. BUT it all got in on time and my bash the next day was fabulous so what more could I ask for~

Pato: Uh thanks? Better than a fake one I suppose XD

Supersayainblue: Ohhh no, Colin would crush lil' Dragonthing. Have you seen the size of his hands?

Mist th: They were fun XD

Sorrows Neptune: That was pretty much my reasoning. And aye... I hear what you're saying about Colin. Maybe through resentment he's made it his life's work to stall anyone who IS going on an adventure.

Rainbowcrayon: If you'll look under the counter all you will see is a cavern of parcels adressed to Oak.

Fishuu: Atty's blood pressure is always on a high I'm sure and this doesn't help ;D and how dare you leave me in limbo D8

Blix: I have big things planned for nurse whatserface ;D Oh and ho shit, thanks for telling me about the adspace! I didn't know I had to activate it no wonder I was getting nothing. Rape away~

ApaFox: Back past the annoying kids dead pidgeys and lawnmower men once more.

xwx101: Very much so.

Chan Is No Longer a Guest: Rather. This game and the people in it never made much sense. It only goes downhill from here Atty...

Rainbird: Especially if you're playing an emulator version and can double the speed ;D That would be pretty fun to draw him doing.

Waiting For Your Whistle: He is indeed British XD Like me. Most of my characters are British, and I rather like to talk in a somewhat antiquated way so I reflect this in Atty. Cute but weird British accent is what I was going for XD

I didn't get the joke from a skit, it may have been seen somewhere else as it's hard to invent a joke that's never been told but as far as I know it's just from my head.

GreenNin93: It doesn't take long at all. You don't want to see how he gets after much longer.

Davo: And Colin STEPS on it 8D Like a bug. Squish.

Metalicar67: Thanks =D Then if I can manage an increase in updates that should be cool.

GweNdZ: Glad you like =D

Tigercub684: Thankyou! That's exactly what I was aiming for XD I'll try keep at it.

Piano-kun: He may have won the battle but the war is far from over.

Emruki: It's life experience, dammit! But for all Atty's negotiation skills he still must take the parcel...

Blix: It's a shame, I'd much rather have you housed there than some weirdo I don't know =< Who knows what they might do to the place. WE MUST ENJOY IT WHILE THE MOMENT LASTS.

Yamataro: Aye it was tempting to draw it in there but I decided to save it for later. There'll be many an oppurtunity.

Spacerogue: Rather D= No pidgeys and Rattatas on Atty's belt.

Guest: Lol moo XD Mokepon's a big help? Sweet. D8 Ho shi- that means anyone who clicks on my comic is easly persuaded to go elsewhere. Poot.

Asj: And that is why I figure it would be better not to do them XD Aye, the pencilling takes a long time. Added with the inking, and covering a whole page more or less in shading...

Ichipowa: Now now, it is a very integral part of our learning in the game. We all must master how to walk back and forth performing menial tasks.

Kinlyu: THAT is an entertaining thought... I smell a sequel! *shot*

FreD-Zexx: Looks like the inks gunna be a winner XD

Hero of Comedy: You could probably make Atty dance for cigarettes...

Leviathan42: Thanks =D I'd like to get more of them written too.

WolfyT: Happy to supply I hope to keep at it too XD Murry Chrimmus to you too!

Arami: Nope, sorry. MtB is deader than the vampires it contains.

Yuri-pad: Thankyou XD I appreciate it. The inking on your works is particularly lovely too.

Friday: I do like the penciling, butI do have a fondness for the purely inked. It's so much... cleaner.

Thanks for commenting!

Double the updates sounds good, the quality is still good.

And it would be much simpler to just steal the cigarettes. Oh, when will Atty learn?

And happy birthday! Hope you had a great day.

Reply'd I miss the last update? D:

Anyway, both pages are awesome as always... and I like Colin. He's massive. And it's awesome seeing him take no gruff from Atty. xD
December 12th, 2009, 7:44 am
Have to admit, never understood why you had to make that delivery to buy stuff. I mean did they not sell anything to anyone just waiting on the off chance that some kid from Pallet Town swung by to deliver it?

Anyway, the inked page looks great, and I hope you had a great birthday :)
December 12th, 2009, 7:56 am
happy b-day! :D
December 12th, 2009, 8:02 am
Yayz!!! Another update!!! Happy Birthday!!!
December 12th, 2009, 8:41 am
What if Atty just throws it down the cliff THEN get his cigarettes instead of actually delivering it?
December 12th, 2009, 9:52 am
No! I like the pencil!!! The current update schedule is fine
December 12th, 2009, 11:21 am
i love this comic so much
December 12th, 2009, 11:53 am
Happpily late birthday..or birthday... whichever!
I'm fine which whatever you choose. Double updates might be nice and the toning/inking still looks great so in the end, if you are bored, than go back to inking!
December 12th, 2009, 12:34 pm
Happy belated/ on time birthday and end of school year! lol. I love how Colin just keeps pushing the pokeball exchange. And whatever update schedule is good for you works for me.
December 12th, 2009, 1:08 pm
Happy birthday! OwO Hope you had a great one <3

I say double the update sounds better. The artwork goes down only slightly when you ink it, and double the updates means you'd go through the story twice as fast!

The fact that Colin never went on any adventures makes me feel a little sad for him for some reason.
December 12th, 2009, 6:41 pm
Ahaha, I wonder if there's a "parcel to deliver" for every new kid coming from Pallet Town.
December 12th, 2009, 7:15 pm
This always annoyed the living bejesus out of me ... nice to know now it can raise Atty's blood pressure too :) And both ways of doing the pages look great to me either way. (so basically I can't give you a clear answer haha)

I kind of like this old dude. XD Now you've excited me to see the poke center nurse... and your explanation for why they all look alike. XDDDDD ffff

Activate your ad space so I can rape it.
December 12th, 2009, 8:52 pm
:3 Sorry Atty, it's back to town for you.
December 12th, 2009, 10:12 pm
wow, Atty is an addict

He's the one sensible person in a world full of idiots.
Happy birthday! 8D
December 12th, 2009, 10:41 pm
Double-updates sounds good, considering how wonderful your art is no matter how you make the pages. ^^

Congrats, by the way. Hope our day was great! =D

Poor Atty, he doesn't even have video-game physics to make the trip quicker. (that part was always such a pain...)

...Is Addy British?! "Blasted"?! Makes him sound kind old XP At least it's not "Bloody" lol Now I have a cute but weird British accent going on in my head for him XD <3

Also... Did you get that joke from a comedy skit? Sounds like I heard it before... still got me laughing thou <3
December 12th, 2009, 11:09 pm
Very Funny Wow he looks really mad right about now, it looks like withdrawl from lack of cigs is kicking in XD
December 12th, 2009, 11:32 pm
See, now this is the part where I'd break out the charmander.
"Oops, did my little... uh... lizardthingy... just set fire to your pants leg? Yes? Oh, dear me. What _ever_ shall I do?"
December 13th, 2009, 12:06 am
I so love this comic. I get excited each time I see the updates.

To Mr Aids, VG cats is also awesome.
December 13th, 2009, 7:24 am
OMG! lawl! This is s good!
December 13th, 2009, 8:15 am
Wow, I just discovered your webcomic, and I love it. So awesome. Atticus is awesome and I love how you draw Pokemon (charmander was always my fave :D)
It's such a refreshing take on the Pokemon-universe.
Fantastic work, and I look forward to more :D
December 13th, 2009, 10:56 am
LOL, Colin is stubborn. Or maybe it's Atty. Or both. Either way, it seems like Colin won this one.
December 13th, 2009, 1:25 pm
Because money has no value next to character-building adventures. :B

Hahaha~ Go Atty~! <3 That's negotiating!
December 14th, 2009, 2:32 am
I must say, I am obscenely happy sitting here occupying your ad space. But I know this isn't going to last. Viz is going to come along, see what they're missing, and buy it up for Honey & Clover or whatever.


December 14th, 2009, 8:11 am
I can almost see atty twitching with rage.
December 14th, 2009, 9:16 am
it looks just as nice ar your pencil style, no sweat about that ;)

wonderful page, I guess he really doesn't want any new pokemon o_o;;;
December 14th, 2009, 7:39 pm
hrm. I was finally outbid.... >__> ... I shall now sit here with my bid and make everyone beat me so you get good rates.

Or I get advertising again.

Or maybe I will bid again, because advertising on mokepon seemed useful. 8D my favs increased more than usual.

moo. D:< *shakes fist at other bidders*
December 14th, 2009, 8:27 pm
(notices something about no pencils in comment. Looks back at comic page) Ooooh. It really isn't shaded the same. O_o
So it takes longer to do the pencil? I think it would take me longer to do it this way than the other way. But, your pencil shading is more detailed than mine, so...
December 14th, 2009, 10:57 pm
lol Its the ultimate show down :DD

I expected fire to come out of one of their eyes. <.< yippy fuck now he has to go through that shit again D< I HATED THAT PART OF THE DAMNED GAME! <.< made me wanna kill something.
December 15th, 2009, 11:10 am
Yes, cigarettes are bad for you! Harrr! This comic really is awesome, I love your pencilwork - but the inked stuff is perfect enough too <3

It would be even more horrible if Atty lived in the Animal Crossing world though. gawd.

I loved the pencil shading, but this looks nice, too. :) Hmm, pencil shading vs. more frequent updates... I can't decide! Do whatever you prefer, haha.

Hit him where it hurts If that isn't foul play, I don't know what is.
December 16th, 2009, 11:24 pm
Most published manga i read aren't any better quality than what you can do without shading, so you're not really sacrificing too much quality. And, personally, I'd like to see more of Atticus's adventures :3
December 17th, 2009, 10:18 am
HOORAY Wonderful wonderful! I've been waiting to find a Pokemon story like this! Thank you so much for writing it! I hope you're able to do a lot more! Murry Chrimmus!

oh coolies! this comic is awesome but could you update your other comics!plz?!
December 17th, 2009, 9:19 pm
I think I may have said this already, but your lineart is awesome. love your mixture of thick/thin lines and attention to detail. nice :D

December 17th, 2009, 11:17 pm
If it means anything, I actually prefer your inking to your pencil work, regardless of possible double updates. Even though both styles are great, I just like ink! =D
December 18th, 2009, 7:34 am
thank you! and thanks so much for your comment!
December 31st, 2009, 12:56 am
Wow. I love how Atticus tries to present it like it's a new idea xD

The fact Colin demands standard pokemon journey procedure followed tells me he clearly knows Atticus is 14 not 39.
June 27th, 2011, 12:29 pm
Delivery! Oh Atty, he's so snarky. Poor him, no cigarettes. He has to make that one last until he gets back now. Colin is most definitely Atty's future. Except he's not wearing the jumper.
Oh my, it was your birthday? Happy birthday! I hope you had a good time! Personally, I would be happy in either pencil or pen. They both look absolutely stunning, so it really comes down to your decision. Lovely page!
