I love how Norman recognizes Ransom as doing much more work than Tim. It looks like Tim gave up mid battle when he thought that Ransom was going to die. Ransom saved Doggie's life and evolved against impossible odds, giving him the gym badge.
Say what you will about gym leaders, but they know who deserves badges and who doesn't.
pokémon but the pokémon get the prizes and the money and the trainer is just kinda this sugar baby
NO GODS NO MASTERS, ONLY 'MONS
SCEPTILE LET'S GOOOOOOOOOOO punch norman for the face for still being a dick about everything
What? All Norman wanted to do was kill Tim's team to teach him an important lesson about teamwork.

And a heart of gold (mental note: check to see if gold is magnetic)

Just the way Tim is staring at the badge. He may have won the gym battle, but did he really earn it? Ransom did do most of the work in the gym battle, and he prevented death twice. Norman is often harsh on Tim, making it even more confusing on whether he was right there or not. I feel like that's what Tim is pondering on that hill.

Thank you!!! I always like to use this comic to experiment with different ways of expressing what's happening. I'm glad that you like it!

Gym battles test more than just your Pokemon, after all. This is probably the most complicated "victory" Tim has gotten so far...

I like how your taking some time to show off some quiet non verbal characterization after that intense battle. Doggie looks like she is grateful for Ransom saving her life, though she's embarrassed that she wasn't strong enough to take down Slaking herself. But she's trying to hide that embarrassment with a tough angry act.
