OK, time to elaborate on this page a bit, since I feel it's important. So, while this has the feel of a filler comic, the details in these last four pages are actually pretty important in terms of character and future plot (that guy Max smacked with the bat? Don't forget about him too soon).
The point of these pages was to make it apparent that when Max REALLY cares about something, he becomes pretty irrational when that thing is threatened. Going around cracking people over the head with a bat is not the proper or healthy way to react to trainers having a favorite Pokemon to beat up. Max also seems to forget he's actually an enormous wimp - if that guy he assaulted had managed to punch Max just once, he would have crumpled instantly.
Also take note that Max didn't even stop to consider why N was so accepting of his violent behavior. He was too relieved to notice that N seems to have no problems with people taking extreme action against people who harm Pokemon. And Tabunne! She was perfectly comfortable telling N about what she and Max had just done. What does this say about the three of them?
(Sorry if it feels like I'm spoon-feeding you guys a lot of these developments. I just really don't want people to dismiss the happenings in these recent pages and act surprised by certain things that transpire in the future)

I made it through a whole whitelocke with (this is the only one in the first six to survive) an Audino with the moves charge beam, surf, heal pulse, and secret power and it was the most useful thing ever.
