This is wow, apparently.

And it allll comes together... Now it becomes apparent what he was thinking when he saw the caterpie, he was remembering more than just 'DT has fire' =) Though a few people figured that out. See, that previous scene where the caterpie set fire to the grass next to it wasn't just me being cruel and destructive for no reason, it was actually so I could build up to even GREATER cruelty and destruction 8D Oh happy days.

Anyone would get the impression I enjoy doing this kinda thing.

See y'all soon.

I love that Atticus' expression is slightly smug, like he'd planned it this way all along, but that little bead of sweat on his cheek proves he's just a relieved/freaked as George.

Who gets the EXP for this? If for odd reason this were the game and he just did that. This would be the overtraining motherload. I think DT just skipped Charmeleon and went straight to Charizard.
Joking aside, I think George has the right words for this page. I have to say, H0lyhandgrenade, you never disappoint.
I was pointing out to my friend just last night, this comic doesnt have less than a 5.0 average on any page that I know of. And I dont disagree with that at all. Great Job my friend, Great Job.

I find it odd that none of them thought of avoiding or just running away from each other since bug pokemon are afraid of fire... so a growing flaming swarm shouldn't be something they'd want to get hit by.

or maybe viridian bug pokemon are just dumb.

(...beedrill and butterfree... guess that speaks for themselves)

*Edit: Btw I dont think the solid blacks of the foreground burning insects is effective. It makes the flames look not believable. (Maybe if they transitioned from hatched -> solid black it would make for a better burnt effect? would make it look like bits of them are being burnt off and the flames would look like they're creeping on them rather than give it that solid cardboard glow effect)

Only a smoker like Atticus could understand the true latent powers of fire.

Back on Page 43 Atticus said he didn't want to burn the whole place down. I can assure, he's changed his mind. He's offically joined the rank of "Annoying Lawnmower Guy" in the plan to "Regenerate Routes" and "Make Kanto Safer For You"! :D

On another note... I wonder how "Dragon Catcher Ricardo" is doing right about now. I bet he's scared for life, not only from bugs at this point, but now also from fire. Awww, poor, poor Ricardo. There are about fifty possibilities running through my mind about Ricardo's future, all of them depending on how much H0ly wants to spend revisiting him and how cruel she decides to be.....

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
Ok, that is all.

People don't seem to realize here that this means that they just advanced Team Rocket's plan straight to the next stage. Their plan was to make the area deemed to hazardous so they could mow it down. AND ATTICUS JUST BURNED IT INSTEAD! Atticus doesn't win. He survives, but the Rockets are the real winners here.

No offense, but this was really anti-climactic and predictable. On a plus side, it's the only part of your comic I dislike so far.

Exp is divided among all pokemon that participate in a battle, as long as they aren't knocked out. So while the exp for bug pokemon killed by secondary or tertiary fire might not technically belong to dragonthing, the bugs aren't going to be left to argue. DT should therefore evolve, unless something startles it or however that worked in the show.

Nothing wrong with that really. If you try to force everything to a dramatic climax every time or try to get too unpredictable you'll eventually turn out DBZ directed by M. Night Shyamalan.

Chain Experience I can see it now -- each bug gets experience from the others it catches on fire, before dying and passing the EXP level boost up the chain.

There is one, badly-burned-with-3HP level 21 Butterfree left, which faints immediately from the burn. DragonThing gets ALMOST enough EXP to evolve, but not quite.

When later it thinks about how many it killed, and possible burning of the forest, it goes into a depressed funk.

This explains a lot Now we know that somewhere between Ash trekking through Veridian Forest and the game somebody annhialated all the fully evolved bugs. The forest is now safe for new trainers, nothing but caterpillers and unmoving cocoons(and electric mice and giant birds) nothing to wory about.

The future? For some reason... When I see them outlined in the flames, just watching the fire consume the tiny little bug pokemon, I feel as if I'm witnessing the birth of an Organization that will one day take over the pokemon world as we know it!

Here's how this works. All right then...

Given that Beedrill and Butterfree evolve at L10, base EXP is 173. Let’s assume they’re all 10, so that’s 247 XP per fully evolved bug.
For not-as-evolved bugs, cocoons are between L7 and L9. There’s not many of those, but they give base XP of 72, so that’s 72, 82, or 92 XP. Alternately, if you’re going by the forest’s base stats, the max coccoons are L6, so you’d get 62 XP.
For Caterpie and Weedle, assume all are the strongest they can be, L5 and 6 in the forest. Their base yield is 39, so they’d yield 28 and 33 XP.

Given that the swarm is probably 7/9 mature bugs, and 1/9 each caterpillars, the expected value per bug becomes 247*(7/9) + 62*(1/9) + 31*(1/9) when averaging out the caterpillar XPs. This equates to approximately 202 XP per bug.

Now, Dragonthing’s a Medium Slow xp-gain Pokemon, and he’s probably around L8 or L10 already (amazing!) if he can take down a L10 Butterfree without a fuss.
Assuming 50 to 100 (at LEAST bugs in the swarm), the expected windfall is between 10000 to 20000 (if not more) XP. This is enough to take Dragonthing up to about level 25 or 30. (To level 36 would be more like 50000 XP, so he won't get that far.)

TL;DR: Yes, he’ll evolve. Massively. Into Charmeleon.

This was all leading up to a massive ExP boost so that DT can now destruct everything in it's path to becoming the...richest trainer of them all. What's next for the team?

Charmeleon & the "B" button Ok, so, DT is going to start evolving, but somehow George is going to mess it up, stopping the evolution with "B" button shenanigans. Atty will then proceed to murder her (figure of speech, not literal).
We'll also see the TR duo waiting and wondering "why is this taking so long" or something.
Ne? :D
By the way, DT reminds me of Chibi from Dragon Drive. I just realized it when I started re-reading through the series.
