I wonder if they're narked that they're just totally talking over their fight scene.

Fight scenes bother me a little. Well, they bother me for a lot of reasons, one of which being that in most of them I read I can't tell what the hell is going on... But I do my best to counter that when drawing them myself. My OTHER problem with fight scenes is that they take a lot of page space, in comparison to the amount of time that passes. Which is why fight scenes can seem to take a lot of pages, but when you read it back they're not actually very long at all... Only a problem that really shows up in webcomics, generally.

I think Atty's a little beyond fighting with George at the moment... More important things are afoot. Besides, he needs someone to justify himself to that he's not a complete and utter asshole.

See y'all soon.

Careful Atty, if you keep up like in panel 2, your nerd levels will exceed the critical 'cool' threshold.

On the upside, if it uses bide again, Atty can have DT spam growl until it's over and then kill it after while its attacks do shit

[Insert obligatory 69 joke here]

How many more times you think George will do this again? I'm thinking about 937,028,956,894,754 more times by the end of the first half of the comic.

It looks like DT learned how to levitate in the second panel. No, DT, you can't fly until you grow wings in your final evolution! Bad dragon!

Wait a minute...
She's fighting a rock type with fire attacks?
Is she even damaging it?

Great page. Good detail as always. I like how the 3rd panel turned out.

Fire vs Rock @Floo Phantom: Back in Red and Blue days it was a viable option to having not picked water or grass as a starter. Onix has a high defense and speed, as far as rock types go, but horrible HP growth and special. there was no special defense in gen 1 so special was the only stat to determine defense against special attacks. an Ember shot may do about 4~5 damage with resistance applied. The Onix gains about 2 hp a level on average, 3 at most, in gen 1 so the fire damage is pretty substantial. Since Slam, which seems to be the only other move Stein is keen on using, has a abysmal accuracy he probably won't hit with it often enough to make a differance. His only option is Bide which will most likely fail since Atticus now knows what it does.

Well, you did a good job, love. I can definately tell that the little red pokemon is going to lower the snakey pokemon's defences enough to KO it in a couple hits. But why isn't the snakey pokemon's owners calling out commands more rapidly? Or are they dazed and confused that Atticus isn't?

Don't forget mangas! And comics! And graphic novels! And movies! And... well... anything that involves a fight scene really. Those short 30 seconds to 1 minute fights have a tendency to be dragged out, sometimes unbearably so... (I'm looking at you DBZ and Naruto!)

He was so insistent on having her keep fighting earlier, even against big ol' Feraligatr, that she's determined to make him proud. That's how I see it.

I remember in FR/LG that Charmeleon (Or maybe Charmander?) could learn Metal Claw. Just a thought.

I really love the way you did DT's muscles in the last panel.

@Flannigan:
If you read this, I'm guessing that the owner of the "snakey pokemon" IS calling out commands, but you can't hear them because they are on the other side of the gym and we don't care. (Or maybe H0ly forgot to put it in. We'll never know unless we find out!)

I'll have you know, Atty, you've brought all of this upon yourself >_< It's your fault DT has to go through all that.

For me (probably because action or action/adventure is my favourite genre) the fighting scene is the best part. I've been told that I'm not bad at drawing them, but then again, I've also been told that it's difficult to make out what's actually happening, likely due to my addiction to using speed lines. :/

DT might also have learned her Fire attacks from Atty as well.

DBZ @Evilbob: Actually theres a popular theory that the fights in DBZ are dramatically slowed down, so we can see the fighting taking place, remember in DB when goku was about level 400, he was already moving faster than the average human can see, by frieza he's in the million or so level, so that's why it takes so long for the fight to happen.

Theres cues for this, rocks slowly falling in the series, holes blasted in the ocean taking minutes to fill instead of pretty much instantly, etc.

Good lord, will he be able to get rid of George after this? At first she was alright but now she's just an annoying jerkface.

@Guest: She is an annoying jerkface, but she's also what the writing world calls an 'altantagonist'. The story world and Atticus need her to progress. True, you can make an altantagonist differently, but its the one we have, and we need her now, unfortunately.
