I was in such a slump this week. I was to be getting my results on friday and was convinced I'd failed. This led me to be miserable and moany and not get much done because everything I drew looked bad and it was all too hard... But then when I found out this morning that I'd passed fine and had been moping for nothing, and got my ass into action.

No funnies here, but nidoran was fun to draw.

See y'all soon.

mdg245: You don't have faith in their new resolve?

Darkjosh: Nahh, they don't have much special effect on each other.

Yexis: Better said x3 And I'm gunna be as kind as to stick to red rules- No pokepower thingiemajjig, no infernal poison upon contact.

Natashakiable18: Let's get ready to rumble~

SnakeKing: It's male. But I doubt DT's one to discriminate.

xwx101: Neither can I x3

Krazeh: Its the male o3o they looks more... kickass 83 Only moreso than the female though.

ApaFox: I NO RITE. You can't be chilled out when you're starting a battle.

raawrkttyXD: It was fun to draw 83 And yo DT's a fine enough title~

Moo Moo: Yeah likely... If so he's in for a joyous suprise. And I shall never tell.

GreenNin93: Was it black out in the earlier games or white out...... Little bit of research in store for me.

Cinlag: I'm not such a fan of all the Nido forms... I like Nidoking but not so keen on Nidoqueen. Call me childish but I jus' dont think a pokemanz looks right with boobs.

Harrow: Someone's goin' dooooown ;3

Mr Aids: Neither should I >:

Raichi: It's go time!!

k33nbl4d3: He's pumped now ;D

Shukumei: Nahh I'm in the UK so its summer where I'm at. Just the plain ol' results for the end of the year I got. And yeah... I'm chuffed I passed lol. Considering some of the shoddy work I did I really shouldn't have.

Spazatron: The key to success... right?

ClareSilver47: It was a compulsory class on something completely unrelated to my course that I feared I'd failed. I hate essays...

SolartheHedgehog: He accepts your love gratefully ='D

Aeris: I did think that as I made it... but hey, least it's an intense alien~

Korbeh: True dat.

MoreThanOnce: Pity that the ass in question is more spikey than most.

u_fido_u: Yep, male~ Spikier and meaner looking ;D

SchnozPatch: And are less hardass lookin' if I recall.

SDlai88: I was thinkin that x3 He's gotta pick up a bag soon or abuse hammerspace.

PRKoneko: ROOTIN' FOR THE LIL' GUY!

Jazeki: I am fond of intense once in a while...

Ree: Until he turns into a charmeleon perhaps, if that happens 8D Ohhh I do bet charmeleons are fun to draw though...

Ally: Babbum tish!

DZ: Money makes the world go round~ It's a reasonable prediction.

Bleh: Yeah I am ='D Jus' a lil' bit.

Cedric Bale: Heheh for one happy moment I thought you were doing my replies for me XD... This battle I'm really looking forward to drawing~ It will be in the rules of the game, not the show, so he's gotta beat all three if he wants to win. And XD ... I can't tell concerning DT's evolution. But I've paid it thought is all I'll say. Sorry to hear the registrations against you >:

Cals1607: I wish I'd had DT's confidence >: I'm such a pansy with these things...

Drew6464: Some people just don't know how to set reasonable goals.

Werekitty13: The fighting spirit is half the battle right ='D? Now they just got the other half to worry about.


Brown_tiger: You're on.

Superchocobo: Yeah x3 I made sure I gave em relatively matching expressions.

Terra325: Would be grand if Kahn's next pokemon was Nidoking.

Dalek555: About a foot highs worth of pure whoop ass.

Giras the Ebil: I can hardly wait~

Se: Glad I've inspired you x3 Thankyou~

Maowe: If it will let him win >8 I'm sure it's worth it.

Kitten meat: >8 ... You can get it right in that grass they're standing in.

Hero of Comedy: At least he knows their names.

Tataki: If the battle came down to pulling serious faces DT might stand a chance~

Toboe059: I haven't forgotten pokeface dude~

Blable: If I get tired of drawing battle scenes, then probably yes.

Tacolover: No cool flame attack drawings for me yet >:

Ichipowa: No magical solutions. Not on my watch.

JillyFoo: Be bonded through violence~

Weirdonetwo.: Radda.

Asj: Its got frikkin horns on it 8D It's gotta be strong. And aye... this whole incident may have inspired me to actually WORK a bit next year... may have.

Tacolover: It would be sporting of Kahn to give him a clue. But if Atty won he might be even more unbearable than if he lost.

slammy4: Sorry about that >: I'm working on it lol

Scar_chan ^-^: Oh good, bringing back fond memories was one of my goals XD Though I can't say I've played hotel dusk. Atty smug? Never.

Amaniachwen: Oh wow XD That's pretty cool. Sure bigged me up thanks a bunch XD And Atticus' jumper is a little bit a mystery even to me...

Battybrain: Heheh I'm glad a lil' joy was found from it XD

Skwinky: Thanks =D My week got way better ^^ I'm in a happy place now~

Thanks for commenting guys!

Poor, poor, gullible Dragonthing. Forced to fight against impossible odds with a chain-smoking, pseudo mean drunk boy... well at least Atty made him feel good about himself... before being horribly mauled that is >.>

@Snake King:
Looks kinda like the male one D8 but since its not in color we cant tell if its pink or blue or not LOL. Im pretty sure its male xD Females have rounder ears i think and shorter spikes? *for shame, i love nidorans and i'm not even sure hahaha xD;;*

If DT wins think of the RESPECT he can earn! (not much, maybe an upgrade from damp orange sock to just an orange sock to a sack of orange potatoes)

Atty knows so little about the pokemon world he lives in, I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't know you could have more than one pokemon...

And poor Dragonthing, going into battle with no experience what so ever (and is it a boy or girl?)

Woah! Never seen that look on Dragonthing's face. It's go time. So far I can't see any trouble taking out a Nidoran, except if Dragonthing isn't told to use any attacks hehe.

You taking summer classes as well? Oh wait, it's probably winter where you live right? That makes a lot more sense. Glad to hear that you are passing. I hate feeling like you did horrible on something you can no longer change. It's always a nice surprise though when you are expecting something bad and you get the opposite. Can't wait to see how this battle unfolds.

"GO!! DRAGONTHING!!" DT in panel 2 just looks odd, in an awesome sort of way, lol. And the more oblong your pokeballs, the better they are, amirite?

@Shukumei (Guest): "Oh wait, it's probably winter where you live right? That makes a lot more sense." You best be trollin'. Seasons do not work that way.

@DZ (Guest): You read my comment for the last chapter, didn't you? :P I doubt Atty will ever aspire to be the "very best", but he'll definitely try to be good enough to make lots of money. (am I the only person who's read the OAQ? xD)

I really, really hope Dragonthing wins against at least two of Kahn's pokemon. Could totally see the third one being Kahn's squirtle, DT losing to it, and instead of getting all in-the-dumps, deciding to think of the squirtle as a rival and wanting to train to beat it. Or with Atty as an influence, deciding to hate that squirtle and wanting to train to beat it's smug face in. While being cute, because DT is absurdly freakin' cute.

Is Atty and DT going to go the way of Ash and Pikachu and DT will be a Charmander forever and ever and everrrr? Or is he not gonna' be a puss and actually evolve some day? I imagine Atticus wouldn't be happy if he (she?) decides to never evolve, given Atty's attitude towards winning at any cost.

Hey, lookit the time, byyye.

[Edit] After posting this comment, I tried to make an account so I could stop posting as a guest. I gave up after it claimed that I failed the image test thing where you have to put in the series of letters and number, four freakin' times. They're not warped or anything, I know I put the right characters in. Stupid, worthless registration process. -_-

It would be funny if DT somehow learns ember and destroys nidoran. It's to bad that a charmander learns ember on level 7, and since Dt hasn's won a battle, I don't see that happening.

I thought the Nidoran looked really pretty.
...I wonder if Dragonthing will get scared and hide behind Atty's leg... I mean, that thing looks much stronger than a damp orange sock...

Thinking you've failed might be a good thing, though... I mean, now you're surprised and happy you passed. If you thought you'd pass, and ended up failing, that'd be much worse. At least, that's the way I usually handled it... I might've worried my parents some, though. ^_^" ("you got an A in the class?! What'd you do, bribe the teacher? O_o ")

I think Kahn will give Atty a hint that he has to say the move he wants DT to do. Or when DT is losing to nidoran, Atty will say something like, " Just bite the freaking thing!" and when he says that DT will bite nidoran.

HECK YES I LOVE YOU! May I say that I just love you so much!!! This comic had me in tears because it was so funny, and it brings back so many memories of pokemon when I was younger...XD Loved it so much...charmander is hilarious. and Atty reminds me of Kyle Hyde from Hotel Dusk...his character is just fantastic. Fantastic indeed. :)) Super funny. Loved it, can't wait for your update!

Oh, the pep talk and now comes the drama of a battle. Go DT! He looks so BA right there. Fight your hardest to wipe that smug smile off his face!! (Although I LOVE Kahn too...and Atticus is wearing a rather smug smile...)

Hello, HOly! I found Mokepon today, read it all, and I love it! I posted a recommendation of it on my LJ, and I thought you might like to see a fan's thoughts, so if you're interested, here you go:

"This next one is the geekiest of them all, I fear, for it's a delightfully witty parody of Pokemon. With only 81 manga-style pages up so far Mokepon still feels quite short, though it's nearly 2 years old now. Author HOlyhandgrenade has wicked talent, though, designing and drawing characters, showing action, establishing scene shots, etc., and the jokes are above and beyond what the truly skilled (and definitely time-consuming) artwork suggests, AND she's been updating regularly since the beginning...so the perceived brevity is entirely forgivable ("forgivable" might not be the right word--sorry ^.^''). Seriously, her artwork is astounding, and part of the work's entertainment comes from the shock 1) that a parody strip has this kind of artistry and 2) that it's a parody strip of Pokemon, of all things. Even if my expectations had been high on the first read, HOly still would have exceeded them. And I gotta hand it to her on this, too: her protagonist Atticus is only 14, but she designed his character so well, I still have a crush on him. He's a cynical young teen with a bad attitude...and he wears a cardigan. I'm not sure why that's both hysterical and hot, but it is. Don't believe me? Then check it out for yourself."

Seriously, even though I'm sure it smells like heinous amounts of smoke, I want to wrap myself up in Atticus's sweater. Hell, Atticus could still be in it. 'Twould be awesome!
