Dude. After a Feraligatr, I doubt your little worm is much to be worried about.

Not long until the end of this year of uni... End of deadlines... I can't wait! I have so much art I want to do this summer. And there's just one last project standing in the way of me doing it. One page of buffer left. Can I finish my schoolwork in time...

See y'all soon.

Whoa! A Pokemon deciding for itself that a Caterpie was not worth its time and it better kill it fast. Yes, George, it really does happen.

:D Sorry Bugcatcher. Maybe next time. (though, all that time and its still a caterpie? rip off)

There are three options all you people who asked the same questions and so won't read this anyway didn't think of.
1 As mentioned, pokemon DON'T HAVE to evolve.
2 That was probably his first pokemon and he didn't say anything about how his training went. No win=no xp=not stronger.
3 If a joke is overused, others have probably mentioned it by now. To a group of people who thought of it already. Or having never seen it before don't get the referece.
This only works with caterpie, cause in either game or cartoon terms bug-boy should be on at least his third league attempt by now. (Ash is still 10). Stupid annoing bug catchers finally getting what they deserve.

Am I the only person to remember how in the games if you get a pokemon that doesn't completely respect you, it does what it wants? I mean, Ash's charmander when he evolved ignored Ash most of the time.

Maybe this is kinda like that. DT respects his trainer so much and wants his love SO much that he's willing to prove to Atticus that he can do what Atticus wants without needing his instructions. Of course when push comes to shove I'm sure Atticus will say something like "you need to hide idiot" or "pft, he's behind you."

*strikes Caterpie down with one blow*
If you've been through so much, how is your Caterpie only third level? AND WHY ARE YOU STANDING NEXT TO THE ENTRANCE OF THE BEGINNING FOREST! It's always annoyed me when they're bragging about how they've been through so much with their pokemon that isn't even fifth level. And when they haven't left the entrance to the first forest in the game.
