Just one last ditch attempt to persuade him not to evolve. And yes you're right, I remember now! The Charmeleons were offputting in RBY because their sprite from behind looked stupid, THAT was it! That kinda thing is a big deal to a kid. But yeah, I guess there are more Charmeleon lovers out there than I originally thought xD

Personally this is one of my favourite pages xD; No big reason, just cuz it's silly I guess. I'm weird I know.

See y'all soon.

Beware Atticus, her fandom has called her into action! NEVER f@*% with a girl and her fandom(s)! Just say "yes dear, of course Thorki is real!"

... Sorry got a bit personal there at the end.

I have this sneaking feeling that once Dragonthing evolves into a Charizard, his entire perspective on dragonthing will change from "dragonthing" to "badasserything"

You know, I didn't mind George at first. She was kind of the voice of reason that helped Atticus become a better trainer. Now she's forcing him to do something that'll keep his Pokemon from getting stronger... that's bad advice. If he wants Dragon Thing to evolve, let him.

@Takai: Or maybe it's because he introduced himself to George, but Kahn already knew him? So by the time George learned his name was Atticus, she already knew him as Brent, but Kahn knew him as "Atticus Brent" and so had more leeway to decide which name to use.

Y'know, back when I first played red, I also thought Charizard was neat, even though I really hated Charmeleon. What I did was stop my Charmander from evolving until he was lvl 35 (or 38 so he'd learn Flamethrower), so that he would spend just 1 lvl as a Charmeleon, and then he'd evolve into Charizard right afterwards.
So, for those that want Charizard, but don't care for Charmeleon, just do as I did :P (You should too, Atty, he'll also learn attacks faster! Flamethrower at lvl 38 instead of 46!)

Edit: Also, I believe my name should be on the top of that list. I am disappointed... Or maybe it is there, but I'm unable to read Scribblese...

Stupid George! Doesn't she know that DT's stat growth ALSO increases with evolution? A charmeleon gains more stats per level than a charmander does, moreso with a charizard.... and don't tell me she doesn't know! SHE KNOWS WHAT PRESSING B DOES! She knew about the fourth wall... and she broke it!

But you see, Atticus knows that no matter what Dragonthing looks like, she'll always be beautiful! He doesn't care about what's on the outside only--

Charmeleon is still in that stage where he is small-ish, but is still a total badass.

So how does she intend to push B? In the games it's explained as startling the pokémon but in the anime it seems harder than that (albeit I've only seen one pokémon B, and it did it by itself)..

I guess since we're going with the game in general it's going to be George flinging a rock at DT..
Poor buddy if she succeeds, forced to face the onix as a squishy charmander :c

(also Ash's charmeleon turned bitchy because Ash didn't have enough badges/was dumb so it's really not an evolution thing )

I never chose Charmander as my starter in Kanto. I had Squirtle-fire wasn't really my type. And Charmander can turn into Charizard eventually, which is awesome!

As for Ash and his charmeleon...well, the guy had already had a tough life. Ash wasn't its original trainer, so Charmeleon didn't have that natural loyalty....

@Salamander: I always pictured stopping evolution in the pokeworld to be sneaking behind the pokemon while its glowing and push it over.

Admittedly, this would be a lot harder in Johto when onix is evolving into steelix... or with a similar heavy pokemon.

My first thought when seeing the 5th panel was "Hoooo shit, she's drawing a samurai sword out on him!"

Took me a couple minutes to figure out it was just her hand to illustrate the horn...

[Pensive] I'm going to be annoyed if she actually does prevent DT's evolution. I'm interested in how it will affect the trainer-pokemon dynamic and Atty's development.

On Pokemon Sprites... Indeed, the original bach sprite from Charmeleon looked bad,because it still corresponded to the original charmeleon from the japanese release of Red and Green. The horn in the back of his head was actually a horn - and boy, did he look stupid from the front, too. Though Charizard looked even stupider, back then.
Sadly, these were the first graphics I was exposed to, so it's always coloured my opinion a bit.

And Ivysaur and Venusaur looked like they were being crushed flat under the weight of the plants on their backs... :(

Is it any surprise then that I was a blastoise fan? that one actually looked better in the original sprite, than the obese thing it appeared to be in the american release.

Speaking of which, I b-buttoned my very first wartortle at lvl 36 without noticing it... nobody had told me the mechanics and the script was in japanese. For years, I thought that wartortle evolved one level later than the others...

Personally I think a Charmelion fits Atty better than a Charmander.

On a side note. In the official Pokemon comics trainers can cancel the evolution of a pokemon by pressing a button on their Pokedex's. It was explained that the pokedex would send out a wave that would stop that pokemons evolution.

I've never really noticed people disliking Charmeleon. Rather, it always seems like everyone's focused on how "awesome" Charizard is.

So, the payoff of ultimately ending up with a Charizard if Dragonthing is allowed to evolve outweighs the terrors of Charmeleon... Right, George?

Gah how can anyone not love Charmeleon?

I mean, its head isn't the best. I'll give the haters that. But its proportions are so nice!

Props to you for making DT less awkward than Charmanders are usually portrayed, but the fact remains that Charmeleon's arms are the least awkwardly dinky and best fitted to its body size.

I really hope that "pressing B" means hiting with a giant mallet with a big B on it so if you look at it from the angle of "getting your head smashed in by the mallet" or "smashing someone's head in with the mallet" it looks like a giant B button.
