He wants to be the very best! That no one ever was... uh, no. Scratch that.

Adventures and friendship were never something that appealed to Atticus... Shame that it's a pokemon world he lives in, and so teenage boys living in Pallet Town are not expected to sit idly by. But the life of a hero is not one he's about to consider; too much hard work for little reward, and so instead he embarks on his quest not to become the greatest... But at least, the richest.

Although the biggest challenge may be ignoring the adventures and friendships which may attempt to ensnare him along the way...

@Tehpikachu: I agree 100%! Masterfully done.
O_O
hahah that's not what i expected, but she's right. honestly that's a good subversion of expectations and it's still in line with her character
welp... can't wait to see Atty have a teenager breakdown and start crying after George dumps his butt.
Sacrificing others just for one really is disgusting..
To be fair to George, Atty basically just decided that his love for his pokemon was somehow worth more than everyone else's love for their own pokemon. He's causing harm to a whole lotta people just to help out himself and DT.
No, you got it wrong girl (i kinda forgot her name)
You're... Disgusting
inb4 she calls him out for not just asking for help like a NORMAL NON-SOCIOPATHIC PERSON
@AngryRobot:
If Atty was a sociopath, he would of stolen plenty of pokemon by now. He wouldn't even be having this conversation with George, he would of just lied to her and left. A sociopath wouldn't have a conversation with the hobo on a dock about the moral dilemma of stealing pokémon(chapter 13 page 23&24). Sociopaths don't waste time on moral dilemmas they just do what they. Nor do they need their victims to be "jerks" in order to justify the morality of their actions to themselves. Atty could've stolen from a bunch of average folk and had a much easier time, but instead targeted a rich jerk and smiled when he realized he was making an undeserved(in his opinion) fortune from his horrible(again: in his opinion) artwork (chapter 13, page 43). It was then he could be a proper member of team rocket without guilt, at least that’s what he thought.

Those examples I gave you weren't to show that he hasn't changed, he has changed you don't see him kicking any rattats anymore. Atty is apathetic at times but not to the extent that you're describing, the guy does get emotional especially toward DT, so if he lost he'd probably cry. An apathetic Atty wouldn't of tried to punch for interruption his apology to DT (chapter 13 page 17&18) or even apologize in the first place. His apathy didn't keep him from returning that TM he was stealing from the old man (chapter 8 page 8&9)

I still think it's a stretch to even say he has "removed himself from society and relationships". He just likes to keep to himself and be left alone, that doesn't mean he isn't open to making relationships, him getting back with George proves that. If you know people who prefers to be by themselves then around others, I assure you it's isn't because they think they're better than you and everyone else. There are a lot of folk who consider dealing with people to an exhausting task, they're called introverts and while they can be jerks like anybody else, their subdued behavior is not an indication of that.
I don't see how one can removed himself from society without being a societal outcast, the very definition of the word is: one who has been casted out from society. Unless your talking about him not having settled down and gotten a (legal) job, then I agree. However, neither has George or most of the trainers.

After re-reading this comic realized I didn't remember Bill because he's not even in it. You were confusing him with Abel, he works in Bill's lab. Atty stole an evee from Abel, as a result of this; he's attacked by the thunder gym leader (cuz she thought Abel gave it away). They forgave him when he admitted to stealing it, Abel didn't even mean to call the police on Atty cuz he suspected that George to have flippantly stolen the evee just like she did with the ticket.
The only other characters who were around Atty when unfortunate things happened to them was an old man, a bug pokemon trainer, jace, a mining rock pokemon trainer, and the water gym leader. All whom were either annoying or rude to him, each their comedic comeuppance wasn't really that bad. Well.. That miner seems to died from the clifairy, but he almost killed Atty with his geodude so imho: fuck him.

Personally, I find George to be far more inconsiderate than Atty. It's never not-funny when she is, I would want to hang out with someone who has no regard for people's privacy, yet is self-righteously judgmental of others. Atty acknowledges his mistakes often criticizes himself for them while George seems willfully ignorant of her flaws.

EDIT: Actually there is a time when George's tomfoolery wasn't very funny for me: when yanked Atty's sketchbook while he was drawing. Folks who do what deserve to have their teeth kicked-in. Other than that, she's hilarious!
THOSE LAST TWO PANELS!!! MMMMMM RIGHT IN THE FEELS! Also just some utterly gorgeous framing, holy shit
Good move Atty, the way to George's heart is therough her sense of narrative drama.
Nothing is more serious than Atticus spilling his heart out while wearing a goofy mustache.
THANK YOU, ATTICUS!
My god he finally spits it out.

I've honestly been enjoying the scene. It's great to see George finally call Atty out on his bullshit.
Coming in hot as a guest to echo some of the previous statements; I'm really enjoying this scene and this chapter. Keep it up!
This is when Gearge gives all of her pokemon that she doesn't use to Atty so that he can give them to Rocket instead of the others. Or at least use them in some sort of trap to get DT back?
@H0lyhandgrenade: this scene has been great, so tense and well portrayed!
This is one of the best scenes I've seen. The hell you on about?
About time... qwq
THANK YOU!!!!

IS ABOUT FUCKING TIME
Hating it? This scene is great!
