Does Dragonthing know a fire attack? Does Atticus know if Dragonthing knows a fire attack? I kinda like the big bottom panel where Atticus and George are both stood together, for a moment you could almost think they're a team...

Ahh I love over dramatising piddly little attacks.

I only discovered whilst too late into the inking that I'm drawing the Metapod the wrong shape somewhat. It's only meant to have one of those big bumps on it's back, not two. Ah well, this is a SPECIAL Metapod.

Since my deadline's on tuesday and I'm out of buffer (I had to pull this page out of nowehere), there's a good chance the next page may arrive on wednesday rather than the monday. I'm going to just assume that this is fine everyone. See y'all soon.

He looks cute in the bottom left pannel. X3

Perfect timing I JUST loggeg in and checked my favorites, and this pops up! I wonder if my theory of Atticus and dragonthing using gestures to communicate in battle art true, such as atticus using his smoke to tell the Charmander to use Smoke screen, or using the embers of his cigarette as a command of using Ember.
April 29th, 2011, 1:04 pm
Does Dragonthing feel sympathy for the poor scratched metapod? I never thought, but in the game you must have to shred it to pieces to actually kill it after all those attacks. Those poor shredded metapods.

I always wondered how Metapod "stood up"....I just always imagined them lying on their sides, named after something phallic, and helpless....poor, poor cocoon pokemon...
April 29th, 2011, 1:11 pm
Fire attack or no, I bet Atticus is thinking what I'm thinking.
Use DT's tail to burn it!
That's a fire attack, right? Gotta think outside of the box in a Pokemon battle!
April 29th, 2011, 1:15 pm
Me thinks there is always a lighter.
April 29th, 2011, 1:22 pm
I love George haha. She's always so excited while Atticus is just standing there all cool and.. stuff. :D'
April 29th, 2011, 1:22 pm
This should be the point where he just walks away.
April 29th, 2011, 1:23 pm
"tong tong" you're too cute for me, DT. ;w;/

Love how DT just knocks on it. Friggin' adorable.
April 29th, 2011, 1:30 pm
It's a special Metapod? Is it in the top ten percent of Metapod? (That's my kneejerk mental response, ha. I think that's sad.)

I am normally but a lowly stalker/reader and never a commenter, but hey! Just gotta say that I dig Atticus' sweater more and more. Standin' there, smokin' like a gent, he's so classy. He's totally my role model in the world of training.
April 29th, 2011, 1:32 pm
This Metapod is gonna evolve soon, obviously! That's why it's got two bumps. e ve
DCXX (Guest)
April 29th, 2011, 1:35 pm
WEll, we know Atticus knows a fire attack. Cigarette GO!
April 29th, 2011, 1:40 pm
kind sorta right and wrong about the metapod actually. he's got smaller bumps on each side, and then the bigger one in the middle of his back
April 29th, 2011, 1:42 pm
Either he'll learn Ember,

...or just push Metapod, lol
April 29th, 2011, 1:47 pm
Atticus uses cigarette burn...ITS SUPER EFFECTIVE
April 29th, 2011, 1:48 pm
He's gonna magically use fire now xD aha! Use his tail! lolol
April 29th, 2011, 1:49 pm
So... the Metapod has a tumor. Poor Metapod.
April 29th, 2011, 1:52 pm
oh god, you guys are intelligent.
Atty will throw his cigarette on him lol (Guest)
April 29th, 2011, 1:52 pm
IF I HAD TEN DOLLARS If i had ten bucks i would bet attys gonna throw his cigarette at dragon thing to either
inhale, eat or use as a weapon.
thinking more rationally now i actually think hes just gonna tell dragon thing to burn metapod with its tail.

Archive Trawl Complete I was linked here from TV Tropes, and I am loving it so far! :)
I do love how Dragonthing is being forced to break out of the arbitrary restrictions of the video game. (As such, I forsee a "Roast it with your tail flame...attack" in the near future.)
Also, George is apparently the most adorable Pokedex ever.
April 29th, 2011, 2:07 pm
Even if he doesn't have fire yet, can't DT stick his tail in Matapod's face or something?
April 29th, 2011, 2:11 pm

^_^ Okay, I know that it seems random to say this right now after how many times I've posted about your comic, but... I'm starting to get my muse back for art and, just because someone already did a cosplay for you, I want to do a fanart of Atty. I got some body structure poses that'll be good, even if it probably makes him look um... I'll let you decide once I get done with the drawing.

Also, I feel like, if I ever get the chance, trying to cosplay as George since she's my fav. girl character so far. I just need to get the stuff to do it right... I got the ref pics already from your comic and I just feel like not doing a cosplay of her would be kinda sad. So, I've decided! I'll eventually cosplay as George AND I'm gonna draw a picture of Atty for you, HOly! ^_^ I just feel like that's the best I can do at the moment because I'm such a fan.

NOTE TO SELF: Make an account for this site... Been needing to do that for a while now.

Also, (yes, I am rambling a bit but I haven't had sugar since Easter since I made cupcakes) I'll make sure to send you a picture of the drawing. It's next on my list of pictures! ^_^ Maybe when I have the time I'll draw George, too.
April 29th, 2011, 2:12 pm
I really like the way Atticus "trains" Dragonthing, it's kinda like :

"Eh, you're not stupid, you don't need me yelling random attack names to know what to do. So, do it."
April 29th, 2011, 2:21 pm
he will use his flamme on the arm on his bank (dont know the english word sorry).
aRandomByStander (Guest)
April 29th, 2011, 2:47 pm
A DIFFERENT IDEA Poke it in it's paragraph is random stuff read at ur own risk.

I don't know about u but I want a serious hard core Pokemon game I want Full 3D world were I can actually do stuff... for instance I take out my charizard (by pressing start going to pokemon selecting charizard)moving my character (which is customizable) to charizard then pressing Y to climb on its back and then it takes off and starts to fly. YOU (the player) can then control charizard and tell him were to go heck U can even battle in the sky with only flying types.

The only problem is nintendo doesn't want to change the way u play pokemon sure they made 3D pokemon(colosseum) games But the battles are the same.(I want to tell my meouth to jump up in the air land on beedrill's back then use fury swipes) IS THAT TO MUCH TO ASK FOR NINTENDO!!!!!!!! >:o

-thank you
April 29th, 2011, 2:57 pm
Fire attack? No. Burning tail? Yes. Just stick it to them. :D

I have no problems with your metapod. I figured it's how they normally look. :/ Two odd spike-bumps on the sides, like the edges of a mask. :/
Dragonskyt (Guest)
April 29th, 2011, 2:59 pm
The way Atticus looks... I have the feeling he will use his cigarettes as a part of the next attack, but ofcourse I am just guessing.

Atty: Dragonthing burn the hardthing.

Dragonthing is confused

It hurt Atty in its confusion

Atty used roar

Its super effective

Metapod was blown away

BugCatcher sent out Magikarp

George:OMG!1!1! Its a Magikarp!

Atty used double-Slap

Critical Hit!

It not very effective

George fainted

Magikarp used splash

It has no effect

Atty used singe

The foe's Magikarp avoided the attack

Magikarp used struggle

It's not very effective

Dragonthing fainted

BugCathcer: Ha allz yer Pokemonz haz fainted! Give me yer munn-

Atty used Mach Punch

Its super effective

BugCatcher's Nose was broken

BugCatcher fainted.

Thadeus stole BugCatcher's wallet

Haha maybe he knows tail wag his tail is already on fire after all x3

XD NOW I got an account to this site! Your comic was just that epic not to join! ^_^ I've also added you to my favorites now. Can't wait to see what happens next!
April 29th, 2011, 3:48 pm
Aaaand here comes the Poke-punting! 8D
April 29th, 2011, 4:08 pm
@H0lyhandgrenade: Omg! I thought of the same thing with the bottom-left panel! I can just picture them at the Pokemon Gym Battles, George informing Atticus with everything he needs to know, and Atticus giving DT the command with a simple gesture.
April 29th, 2011, 4:47 pm
George is like his personal coach. Either Dragonthing has levelled enough to know ember or Atty's going to let it borrow his cigarette.
April 29th, 2011, 4:50 pm
NLet me guess: "dragon thing, do that fire stuff she talked about."


April 29th, 2011, 4:54 pm
I'm kind'a hoping DT overhears them and uses ember or something on his own, since Atty probably doesn't know that he's a fire type, and even if he did, it would seem weird for him to tell him to use a fire attack.
Kira Wolfe
April 29th, 2011, 5:11 pm
I'll bet he will just get a deodorant thingie and spray it on the flame on DT's tial. Tadah, Atticus' version of flamethrower... xD

April 29th, 2011, 5:51 pm
@ Chibi Dialga What does Atty, the cancer stick Pokemon most likely, evolve into, Atticurse?
Chibi Dialga (Guest)
April 29th, 2011, 5:58 pm
@Nobody in particular Yes Atty, a fire-fight type, evolves into Atticurse, the Lung Cancer Pokemon, a poison-ghost type. What at the rate he smokes those things he will be die and come back as a Pokemon.
SpicyBleachedHead (Guest)
April 29th, 2011, 5:58 pm
Well, if DT DOES know a fire attack, that means it's been overpowering itself for quite some time now...well, maybe just a little too much for veridian forest.
GreyStarr (Guest)
April 29th, 2011, 6:07 pm
I wonder if he'll just have DT set it on fire with it's tail...

Ah well.
April 29th, 2011, 7:48 pm
soo... you've got a main character, a rival, a female sub character, and possible antagonists (the people that were spying on George in the bush), now all you need is a male sub character (like Brock in the old show.) lolz
Gran Sorceror Davidicus (Guest)
April 29th, 2011, 8:01 pm
5 bucks say.. he'll use his cigarette/lighter, or have DT use it/them.
April 29th, 2011, 8:02 pm
No fire attacks, Dragonthing? It's okay..just take a seat and think things through for a moment. Just make sure that when you do, to turn your tail towards poor Metapod. See, he looks a little cold, and I think he could use some warmth
Mr Aids
April 29th, 2011, 8:41 pm
I'm kind of expecting the Metapod to fall on top of DT, and he'll remain trapped under the Metapod. FOREVER.
April 29th, 2011, 9:11 pm
Atticus used cigarette.
Liolo (Guest)
April 29th, 2011, 9:55 pm
Confused Dragonthing is wearing an Atticus face. I think Atty's rubbing off on him. :)
Boogity (Guest)
April 29th, 2011, 11:15 pm
"DragonThing, set it on fire."
Along the lines of what I feel he'll issue a command.
April 29th, 2011, 11:48 pm
@Silver, because you asked:
DT used tail whip!
Metapod fell over!
Metapod can't get up!
George:Metapod is unable to battle, you win Atty!
Bug Catcher used Viagra!
April 30th, 2011, 12:30 am
Trainer used Cigarette!
It is super effective!
Metapod fainted.
Atty: Gimme all your money!
April 30th, 2011, 1:10 am
i LOVE how confused dragonthing is, so perfect
April 30th, 2011, 5:52 am
.... I'm going to admit this... I stared waaaay to long at Atticus's side profile in that bottom panel. XD
trevv (Guest)
April 30th, 2011, 6:30 am

Use your fag to burn it!
Sam (Guest)
April 30th, 2011, 8:43 am
hehe, go for the eyes dragonthing! scratch at it then burn it with your tail! >:D
April 30th, 2011, 9:24 am
Atty, uses CIGARETTE!!! :D
April 30th, 2011, 9:30 am
Just stick your tail onto it DT! That's a fire attack right there!
April 30th, 2011, 9:40 am
special..or deformed?

DT, just turn around and touch him with your tail- GOOD ENOUGH.

i will wait patiently till wed<3
April 30th, 2011, 10:04 am
He should just pick it up and like... throw it off a cliff or something
April 30th, 2011, 10:34 am
Reply dragon thing id do that too xD *tong tong* xD
April 30th, 2011, 11:00 am
finally, I just finished reading this comic through from the very start.
April 30th, 2011, 11:07 am
OK stop... Ember time.
Chibi Dialga (Guest)
April 30th, 2011, 11:29 am
Dragonthing is probably gonna faint from poisoning and Atty will have to send out pikachu... Yeah, I think Atty's Pokemon are gonna faint!
Misty123 (Guest)
April 30th, 2011, 11:53 am
god i hated those metapods >.<
but all they know is harden cause apparently the bug catchers cant be bothered to just level up a caterpie lol.and i love attys face in the last panel.hes like '...if dragonthing can use fire attacks,maybe itll be easier to have it light my ciggies...'
Wired (Guest)
April 30th, 2011, 12:41 pm
Osnap "Dragonthing! Hit it with your tail!"
*Metapod catches fire*
April 30th, 2011, 1:02 pm
>:/ I seriously hate that bug trainer. Something about him just makes me wanna throw a lawnmower at his face.

I love everyone else though 8D
April 30th, 2011, 1:32 pm
Trainer Atticus used lit cigarette and lighter combo. It's super effective!
April 30th, 2011, 3:02 pm
I hope we get see Pikachu soon. I can't wait to see what Atticus names it!
dbzgirl311 (Guest)
April 30th, 2011, 5:44 pm
atticus might just have DT turn around and use is tail to burn it
April 30th, 2011, 6:48 pm
Back Bumps I use to think that Metapod's back bump was suppose to be it's nose LOL
I love that last panel. I wanna see what Atty will do next!
April 30th, 2011, 8:37 pm
use the cigar! if it doesnt cause it to faint it will at least cause early lung problems! Also im goin 2 b hella pissed wen dragon thing leaves this cute phase for that akward charmeleon phase
April 30th, 2011, 8:51 pm
well, if DT doesn't have any fire moves he can always just switch to pikachu and use the electric attacks it has from the start.

lol, and i love how he's just knocking on the shell
Rei (Guest)
April 30th, 2011, 10:29 pm
I wouldn't be surprised if Atticus either went over to stuff his cig into Metapod or carries Dragonthing by the tail to burn Metapod. The alternative would be that Dragonthing lifts metapod over and over to throw him to the ground until metapod cant stand it.
April 30th, 2011, 11:25 pm
Am I the only one who can totally see DT starting a bon-fire and throwing it in that? No...just me.
Plus I think that if he did use the pikachu he'd call it something like Peek-a-chew.

Pokemon Games can have little-to-no logic in this regard.
As the comic is based off of Pokemon Games (at least mostly), you should probably expect this subject to be touched upon; most likely the next comic, but possibly later.

The later Monster Rancher games were kind of cool like that, some of the larger monsters could carry you in dungeons etc. Or you could play Bahumut Lagoon for some "OMG old school" fun.
May 2nd, 2011, 5:17 am
Dragonthing looks so cure just knocking on Metapod
May 2nd, 2011, 8:18 am
dun dun dun he's going to order him to use fire xDDD

well now im starting to think that atty is just gonna give his lighter to DT
May 2nd, 2011, 1:00 pm
Dragonthing! @r-o-t-a: To me, it seems that Dragonthing simply is confused to why his attack had almost no effect on the Metapod, and even tried knocking on it, lol.

I just started reading this webcomic today and I'm loving it! :D
Gonna get me a Charmander in Pokemon White and calling it Dragonthing (if the characters fit :( )

I really think Atticus will use his cigarette as a "fire attack" on the Metapod :P

Afterall, he is Dragonthing's partner, no?
ParachuteSam (Guest)
May 2nd, 2011, 2:51 pm
Cool Just found this webcomic and I know I'm going to be sticking around. The story and art so far has been really good and enjoyable. Thanks for this!
May 2nd, 2011, 3:13 pm
Another new reader here. Got sent this way because someone was cosplaying as Atticus and we were wondering who random Charmander guy was.

Looks like I have another lovely webcomic to read. :D
May 2nd, 2011, 3:17 pm
I really like this Metapod for some reason. It is adorable.

-Atticus recaled Dragonthing.
-Atticus walks up to nameless Bug Catcher.
-Atticus gives him the stare of death.

-Bug Catcher gives Atticus 16 yen.
-Metapod used harden.
May 3rd, 2011, 7:58 am
Atticus is just too cute...
Eru (Guest)
May 3rd, 2011, 10:28 am
So, I just thought of this, is Atticus going to abide by the "four moves only" rule? Or is that gonna get broken, too? XD I really hope it gets broken, I never understood the point of it. (Guest)
May 3rd, 2011, 11:26 am
DUDE BREAK THE FOURTH WALL totally have dragon thing know like five moves
every trainer will think that dragonthing is a god
May 3rd, 2011, 11:29 am
Yeah...that's a "special" Metapod all right.
WTF hit it with ya tale catch it on fire (but dont return to :)
sacridshadow (Guest)
May 4th, 2011, 2:43 am
As many have already said, Dragonthing is going to use his tail. Alternativeely, he may place it there and blow on it as a creative way of learning/using Ember.
Realist (Guest)
May 4th, 2011, 3:28 am
@Eru The show already breaks the 4 move limit all the time. No reason why the comics can't as well. Heck, the show breaks which Pokemon can use what moves constantly as well. Have Dragonthing throw down Gust and be done with it. =P

May 4th, 2011, 3:10 pm
Wow That is a lot of comments for something so new... lets jump on the bandwagon.

That is a very special metapod he has there, the're a very rare type that have the power to change the direction light is coming from. Yeah, I totally didn't make that up or anything.
May 4th, 2011, 3:48 pm
OH SHNAP!! I'm a week late! T^T Nooooo!!

...meh, anyway...

"Does Dragonthing know a fire attack? Does Atticus know if Dragonthing knows a fire attack?" <- The fact that you asked such questions proves to me that next page is to be anticlimactic, and having something to do with flames from Atty's cigarette....

...just sayin'...

-Trainer Atticus used Smoke Screen-
-Trainer Atticus successfully fled from the battle-
And yes, I know that's not how Smoke Screen works...but that's Plan B if no fire appears.

K? ;D
Plan C: "Go for the Eyes, DT. THE EYES!!!"
May 4th, 2011, 3:50 pm
OH SHNAP!! v2 Yah, I just realized it's Wednesday.

...You mean have DT blow on it's tail?
...that would require that his head would be turned around over 180 degrees, which would be VERY painful for DT, if even possible at all.
Tales (Guest)

ember after reading the comic it is more acuratly that part of the ciggaret will fall on atticus, causing him to say GOD DAMN EMBERS.

... atticus could pick metapod up and put it on charmanders tail

@ Realist D: I'm from the old-school "generation 1" of Pokemon, so I haven't watched the show in forever. Even if I did watch it recently, I probably wouldn't have realized all that the four-move rule was broken; danke. XD I thought the comics had the "four move only" rule, too, but I may be wrong.
