Totally should be Psychic type. Although I almost want 'Atty' to cheat his way to victory. Or ignore the two super-effectives and send out Magikarp.

I think Rat is either scared, startled, or behaving like Oddish.

Oddish and Rat must be doing some sort of synchronized dance routine.

Rat just wants to show off for the his fair lady. You sly dog.

I don't know if I'm looking too much into Atty's face, but I feel the look he has is more, "I have faith in my Pokemon's ability." instead of him just being stubborn to George's advice and the words of the viewers.

I will hope for a Mega Psyduck, Water/Psychic type in Gen-VII.

Why is Psyduck gold, but Golduck blue?

@Kitleena: While i don't actually have an answer, one guess of mine is that Psyduck's constant headache doesn't allow it to swim, so after it's headache goes away once it evolves, it turns blue to blend into the water. There, hows that for scientific. XD

Favorite speech bubble: How much more punishment can that thing take?!

Blueduck @Kitleena: when an evolution of golduck is implemented (probably in around XII gen ) it will be called blueduck and be crimson red

@Kitleena: Well, to answer that, you have to know that Golduck's name doesn't change in Japanese, but Psyduck does. It is "Koduck", which means "child duck". Golduck may indeed come from "gold" and "duck". This is because gold as a color is often used to symbolize the Psychic type. Abra's line, the Marshe badge being the Gold Badge, etc.

@Kitleena: From what I understand, it's a translation oddity. The "gold" in the name isn't a color reference at all, that's just how it translates out.

Also, I hope Fish jumps in and saves Dragonthing. I want to see Fish evolve, while poor Rat is there dying for a chance to prove he has what it takes.

Edit: Wait... is Dragonthing... using Bide?

Danceweed That's a cool name, we should call the oddish that.

DT is clean enough now Holy, so you can have him obliterate the Golduck in the next strip.

My prediction Atty is allowed to use three Pokemon. Dragonthing is obviously his first, and is going to get crushed. The logical next choice is Rat. But Atty is going to think "maybe the fish will do better in water", and throw poor Fish to its doom. Next, he'll use Oddish. It has a type advantage, but he hasn't trained it at all, so it gets crushed as well. And in the end, Rat, the Pokemon that could have saved Atty in this fight, is the only one he won't use (aside from the one he apparently stole that we haven't seen yet, I guess).

Psychic! Okay I got it this time:
Atty calls DT back, and it's a nice, heartwarming strategy session they have on the sideline.
Meanwhile,
Atty sends in Fish, who after getting tossed around evolves mid-battle as can only happen outside the games, thereby spoiling DT's triumphant return to battle.
And when Super Fish rampages, Rat saves them all. Butthen the squirtle squad busts in. And Atty and George leave town.
And later, when Atty becomes champion, oddish is still dances.
The End. B- good effort

is Rat trying for attention?
scared that DT is getting her tail kicked?
or is the Oddish brainwashing him into joining the dance routine?

will anyone read this and hear the same 'dramatic commercial break' music I am?

It's interesting how many people interpret Rat's pose here as "Pick me! Pick me!"

When it speaks nothing to me other than abject terror when George says "You need to switch pokemon!"

I call hax. Niobe, you can't just use 3 water guns in a row. Give DT a turn!

Also, can't help but notice Rat's little pose there looks like the standard Pikachu pose. You know, the one where its arms and left leg are raised.

I can never remember if Golduck is a psycic type or not. Also, DT's claws are massive, she looks badass.

Leave it to Mokepon to poke fun at my inability to remember that Golduck is indeed NOT a psychic-type! I've been at this series for HOW LONG now? And I still can't remember what types are good against what, and that a Golduck is a solid water-type.

Maybe I'm just getting too old.

I have a funny feeling that DT is using Bide. If i'm mistaken then well some one is just as bad as the writers of the first season of the anime. (Not referring to the artist here)

Lol! When shown like this, fire's vulnerability to water is kind of silly... I'm just glad DT isn't taking a deadly dip under water. I was so anxious about that before!
