Happy extra update everyone! Heh, what with that jumping panel DT is just BLATANTLY raptor now xD Or at least what Jurrasic Park would have us believe raptors are.

I dunno, after being smacked around so much the past few days maybe DT's just kinda gotten used to it... What an unpleasant introduction to the world.

See y'all soon. Tomorrow, in fact.

beautiful I love the relationship you can see forming between DT and Atticus despite his refusal to play along with the whole friendly adventure gig. I love this comic and look forward to seeing where you go with it in the future.

As much as I dig the raptory look and movements (tho I still prefer the former ones), I've sort of come to dislike DT's new personality =/ See Atty? That's what happens when you evolve them too fast. Such a shame, seeing how you were starting to develop a bit of that much-deserved love. The new DT doesn't seem to appreciate that as much now :(

IDK if you answer that already.. but do you do your drawing on the computer?.. If not.. what kind of Ink pencil do you use? Mine keep running out of ink or broke if I use it too much on one page..

That First Panel Atty's face just looks so emotional when he's trying to convince DT to stop fighting. It's making me lose the ability to even- AUGH AWESOME

Running out of ink @EllaCupcake:
As a fellow traditional artist, trust me, I can relate with that one.
There are a couple tricks you can use that'll help you avoid (or at least prolong) the running out of ink problem.
1, buy yourself a whole BUNCH of the same kind, same point pens. That way when one runs out, toss that one aside and use another.
2, only ink the outlines of pictures. Don't fully ink everything in, including large areas.
Then, once ouline inked, scan the picture onto your computer, and use an art program (for me it's Adobe Photoshop) to fill in the color where you need it. Trust me, this saves a LOT of time and ink.

Just a bit of advice to think about! Good luck and art speed to you! <3

More than anything, right now, Dragonthing is out for revenge.

And possibly for the sweater.

First off, new fan here, so, HI!
Second, @Former DT_Fan: I get the feeling that DT might still like Atty deep down and she's doing this to prove her worth to him. Then again maybe she's just doing it for revenge. Either way, I really like how Charmeleon is drawn in this comic, I wasn't to big of a fan of how it looked in the anime, but I think it looks really badass in this art style.

@Wanderer: I thought about buying more ink pencil.. but it's expensive.. And I usually like to ink it all by hand.. I have a tablet but It's tiny and I don't like the fact that I must watch the screen while drawing.. but maybe it's time I practice on this.. Thank you for the advice, really kind of you :)

I honestly don't know if anyone said this, but I really hope that's really DT. 90% sure she's the real deal, but you know our beloved author could be trolling us with this imposter and the real DT in her charmander-y glory will pop up after the match as confused as we are.

Or I could just be over-thinking things. I can never tell.

I find it interesting how may people seem to think DT has changed since she evolved. She's always cared for Atticus even if Atty hadn't necessarily been that nice or caring for her.

When he lost at the gym the first time and lost his jumper, he was pretty distraught/upset over this. As such, DT was upset because Atty was upset. So what's the logical thing for DT to do when she wants to help Atty get back what he treasures (being the jumper?)

She trains like mad to get stronger, beat the gym, and win the jumper back.

Her personality isn't /different/, she's just really determined and not willing to give up.

Great page. I like the discussion and look of the first panel with the poses and the combination of the text it turned out really well.

This page is really sweet, you get to see Atty care for DT's safety and how much DT cares for the victory for his jumper.

@ASP: Yeah, I'm also sure DT does like him and everything you said. My only problem is with DT not being as cute anymore, both on appearance and on personality :P Think of it as hitting puberty. Lots of weird changes, especially if it arrives too fast xD
And yeah, I also really like H0ly's rendition of Charmeleon, but that doesn't change the fact that I don't like them very much :p

E.P.D. Evolution Personality Disorder @rawredy: Yeah I agree. DT hasn't changed, she's still the same fire breathing lizard that she was when she was a Charmander. The show somehow made it seem that when a Pokemon evolves it's personality changes, though I think that's false. Evolving does not make them a new creature, they are the same person/thing they were before just more powerful.

PS: as a sidenote to just the comic in general I'll look forward to the end of the fight just so I can stop seeing posts of "Metal claw!!OMGWTFBBQ!!" everywhere since DT is gen 1 and does not learn Metalclaw. not to say it would not be awesome, but there is quite a difference between Pokemon Red and Firered.

I don't think we can accurately judge how DT's personality has changed. I mean, keep it in perspective. DT has only just evolved like last night and has immediately run off to challenge the gym leader. It's not like they've had any time to have a heart to heart. DT has become more confident and less insecure now - which I think is a natural extension of growing up some.

@Tsumeken: The show didn't make it seem like it happened. It actually explicitly mentioned it is possible. Of the pokemon Ash had in the show the two I can think of that fit this the most were obviously Charmander, and Grovyle (Which is where it's mentioned). It's a possibility. Not a guarentee.

Just felt like I had to comment about how Atty didn't want to tell DT what to do in battle before, and now she's really taking things into her own hands (claws?)! She's awesome! H0ly is awesome!
