Once again George gives me a terrible line to write. It's not me, it's her, I swear! Though I do like how she can hold a casual conversation clinging onto his leg.

Atty's sad... He thought him and DT were bros. So, yes. Dragonthing IS a girl. I knew from her very first appearance she was a girl, I assure you. I know I referred to her as a he in these comments sometimes (which pained me a little) but I couldn't go giving the game away now, could I. George did refer to DT as a he at some point, but at that time she didn't know. How and when did she work it out? ... Let's not ask.

See y'all soon.

So was Atty asking DT "How could ANYTHING about that thing (George) be feminine?!"

...Most likely not, but I'll pretend that anyways.

On another note, I meant to post a link in the previous page, but it took me too long to find it :P so here it is anyways:

George! Since you seem to be on our side (unevolved DT club or w/e), here's what to do if DT starts evolving:

Only you can prevent DT from evolving xD

And on an unrelated note, I found this image while searching for the comic, and I thought it was too adorable not to share :3 Also, why I prefer Charmanders over Charmeleons:

@ErinKarsath. No, Rat has the tail of a male Pikachu rather than a female.

Though, Rat does appear to be more effeminate than DT. So... an effeminate male Poke and a masculine female starter?

WAIT!! Now Atty's earlier abuse of DragonThing seems to be even more heinous! That fiend!

@Guest: shape of it's tail gives that a negative, Pickachu's gender is noticeable by the shape of its tail, and that's been around since the first few games.

if it's a straight lined end, Pickachu's a dude, if it's got a heart like shape at the end, tadah you got a girl.

Evolution! I personally think DT should evolve. It would further the story and you can't keep your starters in basic form any more than you can keep your children two-feet tall and cute. I guess it would be possible to keep them in basic form, but they need to grow up. Besides, DT wouldn't be belligerent. Ash's Charmeleon was a trade pokemon and male. DT isn't. I say, by all means, evolve her!

I'm not sure any of the commenters get a say in it, anyway...

Oh, interesting fact I just found out... Turns out the Pokemon's gender is calculated based on their Attack IV's. Basically, if their attack IVs are below a threshold (depending on gender ratio), it will be female.

It also means female starters can have at most 1 Attack IV (out of 15), meaning DT's attack stat now sucks :P
</pokenerd>

Better focus on those special moves, Atty!

Edit: It also means female starters can never be shiny.
Edit again: Well, it seems the whole thing about attack IV's only applies up to Gen 2. But since this comic is based on Gen 1 Red version, then my point still stands :P

Is it really a big deal? Honestly, even though I did strongly believe that DT was male from the begining, I have no problem with her being female. I always wanted a female Charmander myself, but never got lucky enough to have one. (Or maybe I just wasn't determined enough to start the games over half a million times in order to get one?) Either way, I will forever be in love with this story no matter where the plot may lead.

For all you people asking why it matters that DT's a girl, it's really simple. Atty's just starting to think he knows DT well then suddenly he finds out he doesn't know something as basic as her being a her. That's some important character development right there. It also shows that George is a cloudcuckoolander, not a moron.

For all the people basing Rat's gender off of the tail, remember that H0ly is basing all of the Pokemon, including appearances and battle moves, off of the first generation. It wasn't until the fourth generation that Pikachu had different sprites for each gender. Pikachu also has a male/female ratio of 1:1, so you can't assume anything from that.

@NeoMobius: Not true. I've seen BroFist moments between to girls before (in the comic Dead Winter). Just because DT's a girl doesn't mean she isn't a bro.

HOWEVER! I must side with everyone as to being disappointed by this revelation!
I mean, it only means that DT's not only a badass, but a badass -girl-, which makes her, in fact, even cooler for it.
Which is to say, I have been made to feel even more inferior than before. I mean, how can I ever compare to a girl who burned down an entire forest?

(Which is to say, I approve of this revelation and lied about being disappointed.)
