I didn't just choose Golduck because I think they're cool... I figured it might be fun for her to fight something kinda 'Dragonthing shaped'.

See y'all soon.

That smug look though Ive had that look myself quite a few times playing Pokemon.
January 16th, 2015, 5:06 pm
Another charmeleon is also dragonthing shaped, now that be a plot twist there if she had one~
January 16th, 2015, 5:19 pm
No Dragonthing! You can't mega evolve until you're a Charizard!

(I know this is based off Gen 1, I'm just saying those flames look like MegaZardX's flames.)

Would be nice if this page were coloured. I'd love to see a red, fire-spitting lizard leaping towards a sleek, blue duck-lizard. Instead, we got this grainy grey thing.

But why am I complaining? This fight is going to be awesome no matter what!! GO NIOBE~!

Why yes, I do want DT to lose. Awesome as she is, I really, really wanna see Rat get a few blows in for once.

And without DT there to provide a counterweight, Atty's little floaty bit tips and capsizes.

@Pharaoh Man: Hey, I just came from your most recent page from MMBN7! Keep up the great work!

Also, this fight is getting tense! I've been waiting for DT to meet an even challenger!
January 16th, 2015, 6:39 pm
I just love Atty's nonchalance when he tells Dragonthing to destroy Niobe.

This is going to be a pretty interesting fight considering the type disadvantage.
January 16th, 2015, 6:44 pm
Oh, that smug look. I tend to get that look myself when I get overconfident (and it usually ends in defeat). Unfortunately Atty, you have the type disadvantage and I question whether or not you still have a level advantage or not. My guess is Dragonthing won't be able to "destroy it" much. Either that or DT's going to show her badass-ery this match :D

Yeah, I get the feeling Atty's about to get a nasty lesson in why you need a team of all similar levels and a good type spread. And it's all at DT's expense. Poor Charmeleon...
January 16th, 2015, 7:44 pm
As much as i think DT winning would be awesome Niobe should have almost half a meter in height on DT and has a pissed off trainer to boot.good luck DT and may Rat finally get some action

Wonder who will win.. Golducks are totally badass
January 16th, 2015, 8:29 pm
Not sure if it's just the way it was drawn, or if DT just learned Fire Fang (two flames of fire coming out of each canine tooth is how I remember the anime doing it.) Probably the former.

By the way, I can't quite tell what Niobe's doing in panel 3. I'm assuming just pointing in a "come at me, bitch!" sort of sense.
January 16th, 2015, 9:12 pm
@Tijopi11: More like a "I'm calling you out" or a calling it's shot type of thing.

I just love how cool Atty plays things in this scene; he looks totally non-plussed by the Golduck. Meanwhile, Dragonthing is all business.

Is this DT's first true rival? The way that golduck is calling her out, it sure seems like it.
Arquod (Guest)
January 16th, 2015, 9:38 pm
Oh...this is going to suck. God damn but you would think Atty would be aware or at least care about the problems when fire gets in contact with fire. Oh, poor girl. Be brave and at least land one hit in.
January 16th, 2015, 10:26 pm
Don't forget the Oddish trailing Atty. I feel as though this battle will be it's debut...

Sooo, am I the only one who saw a fire moustache in that last panel?
(go rat, time to shine)

Poor DT's gonna get blasted away with a Water Gun.
Farewell, DT. You will be missed.

Why do I keep binge-reading new webcomic archives I find all in one night.

Interesting that I managed to finish right at 1 AM. That probably doesn't mean anything, does it. Sorry, my comments are no doubt kinda rambly at this point as I should totally be in bed by now, but I'm really loving the comic! Your story, characters, and plot are excellent (even if George is annoying as hob). I reeeeeally admire your inks, they're beautiful and have such variety of depth; definitely need to sit down and study them to help me improve my technique.

Keep up the great work!

Now that I think about it, Atty might win this easily. Because he lets Dragonthing do the fighting herself, it'll be harder for other trainers to anticipate what she's going to do. Who knew that not shouting what attacks you're using could be so useful?
Quasi (Guest)

I don't know Dragonthing knows how to use moves without Atty I think the initial shock of that may give Atty the upper hand. I also think this might be a battle where he finds the value in directing his pokemon in battle especially since Rat hasn't learned how to yet if I remember correctly.

I figured that's why you chose Golduck because of its DT resemblance.
And I love you for it ^^;

January 17th, 2015, 5:45 pm
uhhh... this... this is gonna be bad. DT is probably only aboutlv 20-ish...

Psyduck doesnt evolve into golduck until lv 33.

Naiobe has probably around 10+ levels on DT, plus a type advantage.

Yeah... R.I.P. DT

Betting it now, In the end magikarp is the one that beats the gym leader.
January 18th, 2015, 10:31 am
Betting @Nearo: I bet Magikarp isn't the one.
But if you already have contacted the creator and know that it's gonna be magikarp..then I lose....the loser accepts that the winner is gr8 at prediction....fair?
January 18th, 2015, 10:29 am
Go DT Go! I'm with Dragonthing.
I don't care if it's a weak type matchup or anything, I believe in you, DT!
Destroy it!!!!!!
Even when I play with my Charmeleon, I don't care if I am facing a Golduck, Magikarp, Starmie or even a Milotic, I don't switch him out, and he wins, guess how? I have taught him Solarbeam!
Go Dragonthing, you are a demi-god who will soon evolve into the GOD!

Atty: "I only have enough energy to maintain balance, or to give a damn. Guess which one I'm doing?"

Seriously though, DT's about to get his ass handed to him, I think.

Heh, I had a feeling that the similar shape was why you picked Golduck. I love being right. I don't really think Golduck's tail is supposed to be that long, though.

Betting @Nearo, @Shubham:

I'm putting my money on Oddish taking this one home, which amazingly I haven't seen yet.

Here is my reasoning;

H0ly has established it is 3v1. This is almost definitely an example of Chekov's gun. There'd be no reason to set this up if DT was going to win (plus Atty really needs to learn about type-advantage asap).

The second most obvious choice? Rat. George is going to want Rat out, and a Pikachu has already cameo'd in the gym. It makes the most sense characterwise for Rat to be Atty's second choice as the second best developed character who's tried to prove himself. So, Rat's going to come out and fight the damn good fight but it won't be enough.

That leaves Magikarp and Oddish. Magikarp has the potential to be an upset win and comedy but there's not much else to that and it sort of violates the Pokemon world rules which H0ly has mostly kept to.

Oddish? Well, there's similar comedy (happy go lucky Oddish trolling and stomping the Goldduck?) but it's also a pokemon which Kahn gave Atty to give away to Team Rocket. This means that Atty would owe the badge to Kahn in some way (future drama) and would have reason to keep the Oddish for himself (which he is shown doing).

It could still fall otherwise, but I think the safest money is on the darkhorse. And I'm willing to bet many imaginary internet points on this.
January 19th, 2015, 6:09 am
Betting @Lanval: You are right to a great extent, but love surpasses all!
My Charizard who is with me in all of my games.......bears even water type hits for me and survives!
I don't know if data has feelings or not but even I have never let it faint till now.
Even though I trade it back and forth from many of my games, he knows that it's me and somehow even obeys me even though I don't have badges!(If you have played pokemon games, you know that traded pokemon never listen to you if you don't have badges)
That's why I have faith in DT.
See, even though Atty had such a rough attitude towards her, she stuck to him, that shows her compassion for him; and now that even Atty believes her, she's gonna give her best!
I don't know whether you will win or not, DT.
But I'm rooting for you to win, DT!

One has to wonder if Kahn is troll enough to have raised the Oddish to an obscenely high level.
