Look on the brightside Dragonthing. Maybe one day you'll get to fight an Ivysaur over a sea of flames.

See y'all soon.

Disabled So was Flamethrower or scratch disabled? It looks like DT can't move her claw, but the fire also isn't really coming out...

Looks like it. Poor Dragonthing..

I've always wondered why pokemon don't do a literal tail whip

Come on, Dragonthing! You can still do this! Atty believes in you!!

(Also, this is totally unrelated, but does anyone else have the suspicion that Able is Atticus' dad, and that he is also the guy with the mask and Feraligatr? And that the pokeball that Atticus stole is HIS FATHER'S FERALIGATR!? Anyone?)
February 11th, 2015, 10:27 pm
@Grinning Wolf: We've learned that the guy on the Feraligatr is named Gabe and a member of the Elite Four.

Attack Disabled Well, since Atty only tells DT to attack, and DT just got disabled... pretty straight forward.

I think I saw DT breathing fire in panel 6. I'm bracing for an epic DT comeback in the next page.

Don't fall into the water DT!

It looks like disable was more of a temporary paralysis than a specific move disable. Which, to me, is far more realistic. I approve.

looks like scratch disabled to me, as for fire being weaker than water, have found an interesting scientific fact, water is made of hydrogen and oxygen, both extremely flammable by themselves, heat water enough and it can separate into these 2 gases, + flame = explosions, lets see who comes off worse then? DT, noibe? or the gym heh heh heh

@Barzha: I know, its kind of annoying that science is ignored in a ton of games.

At the same time, the heat needed to transform water from liquid to gas is minor, to do it incredibly quickly takes tons of juice. So, DT should still get nailed, but Heatran should NOT have a water weakness.

Then again, Slugma, according to in-game pokedex, is almost as hot as our sun...

Whoops! Looks like Golduck lost its forehead gem.

C'mon, DT! Hang in there!
February 11th, 2015, 10:30 pm
In panel 6, is that a piece of DT's tooth??

@qazox: No...I think that's fire. We're going to see a massive fireball hit Niobe on the next page. I just know it.

Protip: Get Slash. Yer a Charmeleon for Arceus' sake!
February 11th, 2015, 11:04 pm
Ouch... looks like DT is going to need a dental plan and some braces after this fight.

Titled_Comment Is this following the rule that when the fire on the tail stops burning it dies?
February 12th, 2015, 12:44 am
So is the move hit it disabled?
Also I always wondered what happens if you disable struggle

Prediction: 1. Dragonthing falls into water, almost dies.
2. Atty gets pissed. REALLY pissed.
3. Atty sends in Oddish to weaken Golduck. Rat has a sad. Oddish attacks with Absorb and Stun Spore.
4. Golduck defeats Oddish in a last-ditch-effort.
5. Oddish was never meant to defeat Golduck, only to drain it. Atty sends in Rat. Rat roasts Golduck. Rat is happy. Atty smiles and has a cigarette. H0lyhandgrenade forgets to draw Rat's band-aid in an important panel.

Magikarp evolves in the next adventure. (All this hype, that it's JUST THIS SHORT of evolving, is bad for storytelling. A character needs a journey.)

Looks like this is it. Not even the Power of Friendship was able to help this time, which kinda sucks, since it usually works and Atticus rarely uses it.

Still, I must say I'm quite impressed. Dragonthing is STILL standing after several Water Guns, a barrage of Scratches and a Bubble Beam. She's a tough girl for sure. I hope Atticus will finally come to his senses and call her back on the next page or he will surely regret it later. You don't want to upset Fire-types if you like your face.

Also, I know I'm not the first one to point this out, but it seems you forgot to draw Golduck's head gem.

Saved by... Golduck looks like it's going to give DT a hug... Of humiliation!
(Edit: like " you were about to fall, so I caught you. Now eat bubbles!")
February 12th, 2015, 11:59 am
No! If she falls into the water, her tail flame will go out!

@CrowWingedAngel: Wait, WHEN!?! I've read the whole comic, and when did they reveal who the masked person is? When did I miss that?! Usually I'm not one to miss important stuff in stories... I am shamed... I no longer have a right to call myself an author... D_:

@ZDW: Sorry to confuse you. I am not talking about the pokeballs that he was supposed to take to Professor Oak. I am talking about the pokeball that he stole from Able's lighthouse.

@Grinning Wolf: sometimes you forget little things George has a fan mask we saw during the burned out forest grind

I think he will use it when he gets kicked from team rocket in the base at Celadon city and it will be an Eevee (because that is where you get Eevee in the game) that's why I thought you meant Rat's ball
February 12th, 2015, 9:32 pm
@Grinning Wolf: George told him back in chapter 6.

You forgot... Golduck's forehead gem thingy U:

Not sure if hit or waiting what if DT is planning on jumping. Golduck does't seem to be on the pad yet.

If she jumps it'll give her a little more time ;w; and Golduck will miss :3

At this point, I don't know what rules this is following anymore. Rule of cool, maybe?

I'm still betting on DT I don't care, I'm still betting on Dragonthing winning this one. I just know Holy wants us to give up, before the tides turn in Atty's favour...

@ZDW: Alright then. We'll see what it is.

@CrowWingedAngel: *facepalm* I do not deserve to call myself a writer. That slip is unforgivable. ...Unless maybe, since no one knows who Gabe really is, as he's never been seen without his mask, it is still possibly Able in disguise? PC worker by day, Elite Four by night. Hey, I actually kind of like that idea still. ^^ Anyway, thanks for correcting my lapse in detail.
