Mm. Charmeleons are pretty fun to draw.

Heheh... If George hadn't picked Rat up, he'da totally just been left behind there. ... What? DT can take care of herself now, but I gotta have SOME cute lil' innocent to pick on...

I know. The only total bitch around here is me.

See y'all soon.

@Luigi_96: It's true, I did say George isn't a swearer. But bitch is not TECHNICALLY swearing these days... I know you can say it on radio and such. It's been demoted from sweardom somewhat when it's describing a personality trait like that. Calling someone a son of a bitch however is much ruder. I think it was.

So much for George never swearing... (as was stated by you back in the page after the forest fire where she says "sonofa-" and your comment was something to the effect of "that's the closest George will come to swearing.") e_e inconsistency!

Well @Luigi_96: *technically* she could be using appropriate words choice since bitch is a female dog so maybe in the world of pokemon its the same idea and isn't a swear when it concerns pokemon? lol idk

I think the George swearing part was more because almost everyone in the comments freaked out thinking Charmeleon would end up like Ash's when it evolved~!

I'm just really impressed with your comic. You are giving us an epic pokemon adventure thats also a lot more mature and a lot more humor.
I love your work. Can't wait for new page!

@Kass I agree, I think she is rushing off to the gym, to do rescue Atty's beloved sweater. Thus proving Charmeleons can be nice, and proving George to be a bigot.

Im not sure about British English, but bitch is also used to talk about female dogs as well in American English... either way, it says a lot about the time when the word was adopted...

I can't help but think Dragonthing ran off since George said charmeleons are ugly. Definitely my first thought.

@Luigi_96: I don't think it really matters that much, it's H0ly's webcomic and maybe she has different views on what is and isn't a swear word... seriously, it's something she said jokingly in author comment, not an inconsistency. Pretty petty to care about that when the art and the story line are so much more important than trivial things like that.

Yeah, DT is definitely going to be disagreeable. Proof: Ash's Charmeleon.

...The evidence is irrefutable. DT doesn't stand a chance (poor gal...).

Also, judging from Ash's Charzard, things are going to get a lot worse before they get any better.

Okay I have three theories! ONE:
This is not Dragonthing, just a random charmeleon, being a charmeleon, like ya do!

TWO:
This IS Dragonthing, but rather than being a prat, DT is actually rather self-concious about the change (IE is embarressed), and/or remembers what George said, and is mopey sad-bits about it.
Just because Ash's Charmeleon was a prick doesn't mean EVERY CHARMELEON is a prick. I mean, pokemon have natures for a reason!

THREE:
DT trained and evolved so it could be strong enough to get back Atticus's sweater back for him! IE being sweet, not a prat.

I call all three possibilities!

Here's another theory - DT didn't want Atticus to see her until she'd fully evolved - not just into a Charmeleon but into a full grown Charizard. She's had a whole night of level grinding.

Although that brings up something I've been wondering about... If DT has leveled up enough to become a Charmeleon, then shouldn't Rat have also leveled up quite a bit? I mean, it had to have been doing something all this time to get that beaten up.

What about Ritchie's Charmeleon Zippo? He wasn't an ass.

DT's just pumped, she's goin' into town to win Atty's stuff back. She's ready to kick ass and metal claw that overgrown rock chain into oblivion.

Go Dragonthing! It ain't no thing, but a Dragonthing. DT will go! Fight! Win!

Charmeleons are awesome!

More suspense :/ I must say, though, that that fourth panel might be the first panel showing DT that I can't really say I like (ignoring the last page, which pretty much crushed my hopes xD). Mind my biasing, though... I probably just don't like Charmeleon's profile view :p

DT is doing the anime style of top speed run. Fling your arms backwards into a V as you run and go twice as fast as normal.

I'm betting on the odds DT is still sweet on Atty and heading to the gym to get his jumper back so he can praise her.

Also I tried a play through with my main character named after Atty and had scary good luck constantly with the pokes and fights.

Tails are extensions to, and therefore follow the line of, the spinal cord. Having one come out at a sharp angle to the spine just looks off to me. Makes DT look like a stuffed animal.

A few people have already said this of course, but I'm going to say it anyway because it was my first thought when I was done reading the comic. DT is most definitely running straight for the Gym now that Atticus is there to follow her.

Interesting It'll be interesting to see where you take this actually. Following logic DT should still obey Atty if she's under level 20. The only reason Ash's Charmeleon/Charizard didn't obey him was because it wasn't HIS Pokemon, and was too highly leveled to give a fuck.

I dunno, for some reason, I just have a feeling that there's a reason that you haven't shown us her face yet. And that maybe it has something to do with why she's running away? No idea!

I swear this is tedious! The word "bitch" varies in strength depending on who is hearing it. Here in England there are whole swathes of young people who haven't heard the word 'girlfriend' before and use 'bitch' instead... being 'a bitch' isn't swearing anymore and has entered normal conversation.

If you're going to chastise h0ly for George saying 'bitch' then you'll have to do the same for "poop", "annoying", "bottom" and all other words on the same level (there was a time when the word bottom was considered swearing & not allowed on children's TV).

Pretty good. Also, "Bitch" This comic is pretty good. Could be better, but anyway.

"Bitch" is not profanity anymore, Emmerdale, Eastenders etc. have "Bitch" in and in Australia, it's PG. Probably cut, though.
