See, I can show a little mercy. The Pikachu's not just some yellow mush on the ground, it's just a little... Flatter.

Atty's gunna need a miracle to get out of this one. Dragonthing's not out yet, but if this comic had audio, I can assure you you'd be hearing an annoying siren.

See y'all soon.

I wonder if the whole thing from the anime on how everything about the Pokemon changes in evolution, including fully healing is gonna work here too. Pretty much the only way that thing will go down.
August 10th, 2012, 5:44 pm
@Djoing: Oh wow, that music makes this comic at least 34% more epic..

Ooooh... This looks like its going to be painful.
August 10th, 2012, 6:02 pm
Dedum dedum dedum... That low health tone is one of my least favourite.

But aha, I love this comic so much. I wanna do a Pokemon comic now...

:D At least it's not dead :)

That alarm struck terror in me as a child.
I didn't like letting ANY of them faint ever.

Hehe...even though that made me cringe the realistic pikachu/onix battle made me laugh.

Dragonthing, kill it with fire! Or attempt to at least!

Atty will fight the damn onyx himself in order not to lose his jumper xD

Dragonthing is evolving!
Dragonthing evolved into Bigger Dragonthing!

C'mon Metal Claw and Iron Tail!!!!!!!!!!!

Umm... Yeah, I'm thinking that those sirens are police sirens 'cause that's down right abuse.

Totally got this one guys So does getting trapped in those baseballs change their genetic stability somehow, turning the pokemon somewhat immortal then? The only way to truly kill it is to break its phylactery first, severing its tie to this world? >_>

Aww, poor DT, getting brought out of the pokeball mere seconds after getting in. He looks so cute in that exhausted pose xD Nice to have him back on scene (I see you brought the hurt-marks back too xD)... Although now it's that time when I start worrying that he might evolve soon :< Not sure if I should root for him to win the fight or hope he gets even more beat up just so he can stay small and cute xD (I also don't mind seeing you torture him a bit every now and then just for the cute expressions xD) Then again, if it were me I'd just surrender and let the cute guy rest in my arms :3

Maybe he'll get lucky and get a critical hit =p I hope dragonthing doesn't evolve, I like charmanders more.
DT_Fan (Guest)
August 10th, 2012, 7:28 pm
Also loving George's expression on that second panel xD As if expecting Rat to magically stand up and start kicking ass.
August 10th, 2012, 7:57 pm
@FormOf_SomeGuy: It is more likely that the Onyx is so well trained that it knows not to hit hard enough to kill. If for instance, the Onyx killed all of a person's Pokemon, they would then be trapped in that town. Why? Because there are wild Pokemon on the way to Mt. Moon and wild Pokemon on the way to Pallet Town, it wouldn't be safe for them to leave. It is probably a requirement for gym leaders and their annoying trainer people to have their Pokemon well trained to the point where they know not to kill to prevent situations like that.

I'm impressed, anything that can survive an onix crushing them like that must be pretty tough and extremely lucky( not saying what kind of luck however).

I like how no one even responds to the fact that she says "You fought so hard!" when he didn't do anything.
August 10th, 2012, 9:36 pm
XDDD Spatula fff
August 10th, 2012, 10:30 pm
Can George run Pikachu to the healing center while DT fights, then do the same thing for DT while Pikachu fights until Atty wins?
DT_Fan (Guest)
August 10th, 2012, 10:42 pm
@KirtiMiko: Only assuming George can run to the Poke Center, heal and return faster than Onyx can slap his tail as in the previous page... So no, not likely :P

This. This right here is why I always take the grass starter.
Besides, Bulbasaur is awesome.

As for DT, any chance Atty mistakenly bought a super poiton with his cigs?
August 10th, 2012, 11:35 pm
I love how demoralized George looks in that fourth panel. Like she just realized how screwed over Atty is with his bad choice in teammates.
August 10th, 2012, 11:42 pm
@Djoing: PROPS TO YOU. oh my god
August 10th, 2012, 11:46 pm

damn, i lost, only one thing to do now...fucking run, I am not letting him take my jumper!
August 11th, 2012, 12:26 am
@Djoing: Winning. Winning all of my praise right now.

"Im not losing my jumper"... so instead I will lose a couple of pokemons... great Atty I told you, go to the pokecenter.

Don't do it! Don't make him lose the jumpeeeer! Its not Atticus without it! XD
Grif (Guest)

Atticus gives DT another curlywurly, or promises to if he wins. DT spontaneously uses Rage. Wins the fight.

Peka I love how it says "Peka" Instead of "Pika" XD
Hey, if all I could say was Pika, and I got crushed by a rock snake, I'd be saying Peka too XDDDD

And Atticus is desparetly trying to prevent his pandora's jumper from releasing evil. Perfect!

Well...this won't end well.
August 11th, 2012, 4:33 am
Whenever pokemon is epicified, they never seem to show the times you pull something out and it's just immediately KO'd in one hit. Thank you for giving this the proper attention it deserves.
August 11th, 2012, 5:39 am
Atty thinks his jumper is worth more than the safety of both his pokemon?
August 11th, 2012, 6:36 am
@Inuzuka Seriously? I think someone needs to re-read this comic.
August 11th, 2012, 6:51 am
George: Go for the mouth, then, the throat, his vulnerable spots!

Atty: It's a rock! It doesn't have any vulnerable spots!

What's cookin' ? I have a spatula! and...some butter....what are we cooking?
August 11th, 2012, 11:23 am
Sucks for you DT Well, DT, it seems your master has decided that his jumper is more important than your life... so good luck!
Salamander (Guest)
August 11th, 2012, 12:58 pm
.. Wait.. so the rat is still alive?
August 11th, 2012, 5:48 pm
@Salamander: Yes, it is alive. If the Pokemon of gym leaders were allowed to murder whatever the hell they wanted, a lot of people like Atticus would be stuck in that town because they would have no Pokemon left. This may be a darker version of Pokemon, but for that exact reason, gym leaders can't let their Pokemon kill the Pokemon of challengers as that would make it dangerous for those people to leave.
August 11th, 2012, 8:37 pm
Am i the only one who feels that man is a dick...? o3o DT I believe in j00!!! Metal Claw dat rock snake b8tch!!
August 12th, 2012, 1:02 am
Hm... Weird as it sounds, DT actually has a chance here. Onix has a cripplingly low special defense stat at Pewter City levels, and DT seems to be slightly overraised by virtue of being the only pokeleydoodle Atticus has raised at all. If we're going by game mechanics, Atticus has a (hilariously slim) shot at not losing his jumper. God knows I've pulled that particular unlikely victory out of my hind-end a couple of times. of course, I've only ever done it from full health, but still. It's probably more telling that I've lost onixes (onixii? Onipodes?) to fire types before.
August 12th, 2012, 5:57 am
Man, that gym leader is kind of a douchebag. Never in my journeys have I ever met a gym leader who didn't let me visit the Pokemon Center before the gym battle. :o
Kamashari (Guest)
August 12th, 2012, 8:14 am
Ways to win... 1. Metal Claw that snake.
2. Evolve Dragon-- Nah.
3. SEISMIC TOSS! I don't know why nobody thought of this before...
4. Iron Tail.
5. Manipulation of game mechanics.
6. Run. Just run. All the way back to Pallet town.
7. A clever ruse.
8. Taking George's pokemon to battle with. *smirks*
9. *Whips out a Gameshark...*

Well, those are just some ideas.

Why does everyone feel that Dt evolving into Charmeleon is a bad thing? I've seen people draw charmeleon (and charizrd for that matter) to be brilliantly adorable!

Whether or not he'd actually evolve HERE is another thing entirely
August 12th, 2012, 12:03 pm
no he's gonna evolve in the games you tend to have to grind up charmander almost to the point of evolving anyway to consistantly beat brock (alone) with it. While charmeleon is fricking awesome, it just wouldn't really feel the same as dragon-thing, even if it isn't drawn like a badass (like she'd give brent a bad ass?) On the other hand, change is often good, and I certainly can't argue against possible character developement... the actual show drives me up a wall. Ash is still the exact same person (well a more flanderized version anyways) of the little kid who set off from pallet town, despite laying the smack down across several continents . wtf?
August 12th, 2012, 2:25 pm
aww poor dragonthing, he better become charmeleon and pwn that giant stone snake!!

Yeh.. still as a charmeleon I doubt his chances...

SWEET CHRIST. I love this comic so much.

Thank you for existing h0ly.
DT_Fan (Guest)
August 12th, 2012, 4:01 pm
@Koranos: It's not necessarily a "bad thing" for him to evolve. I have no doubt in H0ly's ability to draw an adorable and cute Charmeleon/Charizard; however, there's just a really big change going from H0ly's rabbit-like cute little lizard to a bigger, fiercer looking lizard with long, sharp claws on either hand. It also doesn't really fit Atty's newbie team at this point in the story, having a badass lizard and an inexperienced flattened rat.

Also, regardless of drawing style, Charmander is still fundamentally cuter than Charmeleon :P And I like Charmander better anyways, as do many other people, so let us enjoy him cute and small while it lasts (I'm not realistically expecting him to remain unevolved forever anyways... It'd be too good to be true xD).

I had a dream that Atty, after losing and having no other option but to concede defeat, ripped his jumper to pieces before letting Elle have it. XD I highly doubt he's that spiteful, but it made for a funny dream.
August 13th, 2012, 1:32 am
Nobody fucks with the Jumper! Nobody!!!
Vi (Guest)
August 13th, 2012, 2:21 am
... maybe dragonthings dad was an aggron? while i think he won't lose the jumper (or kills dragon thing trying), losing it could be the motivation he needs to actually go train.
August 13th, 2012, 10:35 am
honey!? i thought she was his adopted daughter or something!?
August 13th, 2012, 12:56 pm
@interspark: They are in a relationship, Holy said so several pages ago.

Fun Fact Time!!! Fun fact: Spatulas aren't the flat things you use for flipping burgers, they are actually the flat things used for pats of butter. Turners are actually used for burgers, eggs, etcetera. But I'm assuming nobody gives two flying f**ks about what I have to say...
Pikachu, use harden! Now you're cold butter!
