WHERE WERE YOU WHEN SERENA WON DA ASH?
HOLY SHIT THIS IS THE BEST POKEMON SEASON YET
So, what do you think?
Right in the character development fetish.
Haven't watched pokemon for like 8 years. Did he ever win at anything? Does this shit even have a story or is it just every episode is it's own little arc? Seems pretty babby anime to me.
>the anime starts pandering to the 20 something year old manchildren pieces of shit with crappy shipping
>the stunted retards eat that shit up and ask for seconds
This is beyond pathetic to witness.
Ash won it then gave it to her. >>121322010
Same thing he did with they keychain he got.
>This gonna end exactly the same way Misty did.
Anime Battle Frontier is for scrubs and Orange League didn't even have a tournament.
That said, he would have probably won the Sinnoh league if it weren't for that faggot with the legendaries.
>this situation is different.
no, it isn't. It's just another girl who has a crush on Ash, Ash being oblivious as fuck, and Ash moving on to being friends with another girl. In the end it won't matter. Just like Misty or any girl who had a crush on Ash.
It took ya 16 years to get a girlfriend? Haha! I mean, good for you, Ashy boy.
It's no where near the level that Serena's is. Serena's crush is pushed to be as canon and there's no doubt about it.
If anyone thinks Misty's supposed crush, is anything like Serena's, then it's a sure indicator they haven't been watching the show and are talking straight out of their ass.
Not that I think anything will happen though.
>Bullshit even in the jp version theres still a thing between them
Have some copypasta, friend.
>Kasumi doesn’t feel love for Satoshi. If her love for him became one of Pokemon’s plots, it would break all the Pokemon series’ structure. Pokemon’s theme is relation between fictionals creatures and people and also growth through think and thin of the young boy (this means an age period for both boys and girls), Satoshi.
>In Pokemon however, the most important theme is relation with fictional creatures, which was added to that theme. For Satoshi, who’s a child, Pikachu is th partne he can count on. For example, even if Kasumi fell in love with Satoshi, it wouldn’t be able to interrupt relation between Satoshi and Pikachu.
>If Kasumi’s love towards Satoshi happened in Pokemon, it would be nothing more than seasoning added to cooking - and, to be honest, for Pokemon’s theme, seasoning that makes taste complicated would be only a disturbance.
>So from the start, there’s no such factor in Kasumi’s character as love towards Satoshi. Surely, it may be that Kasumi was in the ager when girls fall in love, but “Pokemon” isn’t either a shoujo manga nor a cellphone novel.
>That’s why, out of all the characters appearing in the Pokemon anime series, the one with the weakest existence is Kasumi. It was decided from the start, when Pokemon anime was during planning, that Satoshi will be character travelling with friends, because if it was only the boy and Pokemon it would become tasteless and it would be hard to introduce to the girls’ audience. This existence could be compared to a parsley in a dish. It doesn’t need to be there, but the dish looks better if you add it. Occassionally, there are people who like parsley in their dish, but it’s a minority.
They teased it in the original a bit, but it didn't go anywhere. What they're doing in XY is basically a big "fuck you" to that guy with the new director and head writer going through with it. They've made it already a point where they've pretty much tied Ash and Serena's goals together in a sense with one being the inspiration for the other during their times of focus.
>It all could've ended with this
Are you saying that's a bad thing? That sounds cute as fuck.
Misty when she finds out that Serena won.
Her and Ash's daughter. The original plot of the first movie was to close out the series and have Misty and Ash be married with a daughter at the end. Ash is off adventuring. The blue haired woman in the prophetess from the first movie.
What? About what they're doing with Ash and Serena? Of course not.
>shaft tire character development
IM GONNA EXTRA NOT PICK THIS UP NOW
The little girl is one of the singers for the theme that plays in the commercial, along with the one with blue hair. First movie happens a bit after Ash's 8th gym badge but before the League.
>no doujins where Serena gets NTR'd by her Fennekin with Ash.
Because the movie plot was drastically changed shortly after this trailer was released becasue Nintendo and OLM saw Yen signs when the games and series were such big hits. The original script did mention Misty's Daughter in the story. It is however never confirmed that Ash is the father, but it's heavily implied.
I wish OLM would make the 1st movie again with the Original plot. You know as a special for us nostolgiafags. It's not like it'll change the story since we're 15 years past the first movie and season.
Just watch the Sinnoh League. It had the best battles ever in Pokemon and was probably the point at where Ash was at his strongest.
Ash vs Paul is GOAT.
The way Ash loses in the League to a trainer named Tobias makes some people call it total bullshit but I really think it showed how strong he was since he was the only one in the whole League to knock out his Darkrai, let alone Latios
This always happens in Pokemon Movies. It's called Marketing you retard.
XY is superior in battles. Watch Korina vs Ash, the battle gym. No you know what, fuck that, watch the episode where Lucario went full bersek and almost kill Pikachu.
>there were several scenes that were supposed to be int he original version of the movie, but were cut or changes for the changed version.
Uh , this happens with every single Pokemon movie. The make scenes to generate hype and then never use them
>subverting my expectations by having a main character be eliminated against only background competitors before competing against any rivals
I don't think this has ever happened in this show, and it was fucking brilliant.
>having her hold back her tears until that amazing end scene
Best pokemon episode of all time.
Why do all these people think SHAFT invented haircuts? If anyone, you're smelling Nisio.
>blond guy is voiced by Yuki Kaji
It took me by surprise, is the blond guy edgy?
I think Serena may have just taken the spot for best CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT haircut, bumping this into second place.
How the hell can you faggots still watch this show? Shit's gone on longer than general hospital.
She was only looking at Ash and kind of explaining that she went with short hair. Ash compliments her after quieting Bonnie by patting her head then he notices the ribbon.
Since the first movie.
>you will never be eureka
>ash will never pat your head
Pic related to both replies.
Ash dont give a fuck about french slut. He is assexual or wwant bangs Pikachu only.
He's kawaii as fuck and a little gay for Ash
You mean Alexa. Viola's the younger sister.
Shit, your right. Don't know why I had Viola on the brain.
Next week is Sliggoo. Not even six episodes of Goomy.
>inb4 the legendaries didn't even fight in the movie
I fucking hate the delusions the autists who still watch this episodic commercial garbage like Precure and Pokemon.
Fucking sperging out and overreacting every time their shit has a hint of not being episodic garbage with no progression that only exists to sell products.
Who knows, but judging by how it behaves with trauma and shit, maybe M.
the second one was so fucking good.
He's referring to a dumb joke from /vp/ and tumblr. It's not a real question.
>SERENA WON DA ASH
>THE BEST POKEMON SEASON
If it's not about pokemon, then it can never be the best pokemon. I rather watch shitty forcedrama if I want a character winning.
because Viola is perfect
Have Pokemon fans never seen any other anime?
You are all setting yourselves up for bitter, bitter tears when Ash friendzones her
i think almost all toyetic shounen as a rule does not allow any male mc and female lead to be beyond friends. that rule might be broken someday but i got the feeling it wont be happening in pokemon or the other toyetic shounen im watching right now.
I'd agree to that. I haven't watched Pokemon since probably Johto, and I remember when Dawn was all the rage. Looking back at those days, she (and other pokegirls) didn't have nearly the effect on me that Serena did as a "spotlight" girl.
Terrible Carlos. Ashbowl != Ashtray.
Well I couldn't go with Ashtray becasue that's a Gundam series.
Don't know, but they have been pushing some romance in the games. B/W2 had the idol girl/guy depending on your character's gender, X/Y had Shauna, and OR/AS had Brendan/May date watching a star show.
Still will have battles and crazy shit.
Cross dressing Ash too.
Doesn't help that he noticed it either when he never notices shit.
They're pushing her feelings for him pretty hard. They had the chance to make her her own character with goals seperate from ash, but ash appeared in those racing thoughts before the haircut, and his gift appears in her new costume. They already crossed the line.
So how are they going to take her and her feelings down?
Didn't like everything appear in the racing thoughts?
Anyway, they're just going to make here leave but she'll promise herself to confess her feelings when she's Kalos Queen or something like that.
It's going to have to be on the same level of bullshit they pulled to stop Sinnoh Ash from winning the league.
Yes, I am still mad
The only this will end even remotely well for Serena is if ash and her pledge to become a couple after ash wins a league and her a pagent
40 years later, when the franchise finally dies surely, ash and serena, still 10, finally meet up and confess.
They're pushing it pretty hard with Ash as well. They've already had Serena trigger him twice in two gym battles mid-battle.
>ash comes in 2nd place in the league championship when he loses to another fag with legendaries
>"I must get stronger to achieve my goal. Farewell guys!"
>heads off to the next region on his own
>"Satoshi-kun is right, I must get stronger too! Next time we meet i'll share my true feelings with him!"
The end. And Serena never appeared in the series again and we return to status quo.
I remember when there was a spoiler going around that Serena was going to disqualified for going over the time limit.
When I saw that the tripokalons actually did have time limits I really thought it was going to happen.
Because people like Ash.
I'd probably stop watching if they got rid of Ash at least. It's insanely unlikely, but I'll be mad as fuck if that fag in the opening actually became the new MC.
I'd watch new season if Bonnie becomes the new MC.
>People liking a forever 10 faggot that can't win shit instead of based Red
The fuck is wrong with you
>WHERE WERE YOU WHEN
>Its fucking nothing
People actually believed. Sad.
>Mfw delusional faggots seriously think Serena will the Ashbowl
>Mfw people think XY will be different from any other season
>Mfw said delusional faggots will become severly assblasted when Ash loses in the league again like a faggot AND ditches Serena
I don't like that reaction picture either. The blatancy of the contrast is too overdone imo. It just feels juvenile.
Anon, what is that hideous, nonsensical creature you have posted on my /a/?
Here, take an appropriate reaction gif
Fucking /vp/, can't even contain their own autism.
What if Serena proves popular enough to appear in the next series along with Ash, and they only replace Clemont? I think that would be a good way to keep milking the viewers.
Where do you think we are?
Please no, one of the good points of this season is that Ash is finally the most experienced trainer of the crew and the one that will probably present solution for the problems.
The more I like brock, the more I want him away from the party.
Maybe one special episode?
Red may be overrated as fuck, but at least he still got shit done and won a championship in the first league he competed, something that Ash can never do no matter how many times the faggot tries
Bonnie is clearly best character.
He actually chilled with his replacement before XY started.
Goddamn, I love her voice so much.
Pokemon aren't people.
And if we're counting pokemon then pic related is best girl.
I know movies aren't "canon" but part of me wishes Latias would come back for a pokemon league episode for Ash and just wreck someone's shit.
Characters of the week aren't bad within themselves but they need to bring back old characters more often instead of just "special events"
Thats when he felt like an actual character with personality and flaws rather than a stiff, approved-by-the-FCC tasteless cutout. But that can be said for the "show" as a whole.
I remember they did that for a little while in the middle of Johto.
A bunch of character of the days from kanto started showing up. Duplica, and the ninja in training from the poison gym, and I think a couple more.
>Ash gets to the finals
>He's matched up against fucking Takuto of all people
>Anxious over how the match is gonna go down
>The night before, he notices something up in the sky
>The next day, the battle begins
>Manages to tie with Darkrai with his first Pokémon
>Takuto sends out Latios with a shiteating grin
>Ash sends out Latias in response
>Everyone in the audience shits bricks
>They both Mega Evolve (cue plot point about finding a mysterious Mega Stone earlier in the series)
>Serena jealousy over a Pokémon wanting Ash's dick
Well, they had this guy show up twice so far.
that also goes the same for the other toyetic shonen im watching right now. in fact, they reached the "just fuck already" levels but yeah i dont think pokemon and that show will break that tradition.
>all those Tauros
Want to make Serena even more jealous?
>Ash calls out Latias
>Latias walks out into the battlefield in Bianca human form
>Ash and Latias smile at each other
>everyone is confused
>transforms back into original form
>Serena starts having wild speculation about how close they are
Based? The only thing Red is based out of is a cave! People talk about Red the hero. Red the legend. If he were such a hero and such a legend, he'd have done a lot more than win a championship and disband Team Rocket.
If he's so great why hasn't he expanded beyond his cave. Does the dude even take a bath?
Red, the one trick pony and one hit wonder who everyone mistakes for Ash to begin with.
Pikachu and Ash move the franchise.
Pikachu and Ash save the world, constantly.
Pikachu and Ash befriend the hell out of Legendary Pokemon.
Pikachu and Ash travel to other regions and make friends and meet and capture new Pokemon.
AND when they aren't with him, he's chillin' on Professor Oak's ranch
Red is wondering which lichens would taste best at this time of the year.
Red ditched any others into a PC.
Red is literally the Genwunner who can't get past the good ole' days and his own hype.
Red the Fraud
He must register pokemons beforehand for competitions if I recall corectly.
Now I'm confused how no information leaked about a guy registering more than one legendary-that-should-not-exist pokemon for the league.
The truth is, Red is nostalgic, the first trainer, and the best trainer. He will always be the one to be beaten with the most mystery surrounding his movements and brings the most surprise when showing up randomly.
You can't beat Red.
You can't kill the hype.
Red is your Daddy.
All of our Daddys.
He was to us bastards that grew up Dadless
And replaced the Dads of those who were lucky
Bow to Gen Wonners.
Bow to Red.
And btw, Red doesn't have gay/bi tendacies. He has a harem filled with only bi women and the strongest pokemon even fuck them. Red has a harem for his harem. All of natural, beautiful bi sexual women eating pussy and sucking his dick.
He is the Master Race.
The Master Trainer.
The Master over Arceus.
Not Redgy, like you kids meme.
Just admire him.
Admire Red's everything.
NO. Stop typing.
Just turn off your computer and go.
This was everything you needed, this fills your day.
Red is all.
Red is everything except bi, gay, or anything that takes him away from being Red.
Your fantasies and fanart are a shit.
Gen Won for life. Gen Won only One.
gtfo and stay gtfo.
Kind of like how they do with boxing matches. only problem was the only known Pokemon in record was Darkrai because he swept the Sinnoh gyms and most of the league with that. Ash was the only one in Sinnoh to kill Tobias's clean sweep with one Pokemon until the Elite Four.
Yeah. It might have an actual fresh plot. That would be far too risky.
Especially when fans are going to duke over their money for the poorly conceived seasons anyway.
Its just good business.
The plot is the same fucking faggot farms new pokemon from the newest game and uses them to lose in spectacular fashion alongside new fap bait, featuring team rocket shenanigans to mix it up. The plot hasn't changed since Ash died that one time.
Is Team Rocket still attacking them every fucking episode like the last 1200?
They could just slowly introduce new MC's and see if there's any interest.
I love it when Jessie tries to be a rival.
It's even better when she succeeds.
He actually used fucking strategy with Heracross. He should have beaten that Darkrai.
>Starts out battle with Heracross
>Bug/Fighting, both types being super effective against Dark
>Potentially has Guts as an ability, which boosts its Attack if it gets a status condition (in this case, sleep)
>Knows Sleep Talk and Megahorn
It was the perfect counter to Darkrai, and yet it was beaten in one hit.
>people seriously thinking they'll replace Ash after XY
you can't simply replace a main character after almost 20 years
>ash finally wins the championship
>victory goes to head
>surrounds himself with hot bitches
>forgets about lame fucking pokemon.
>pikachu leaves ash to find a new trainer thats not a douche
and Ash was never heard from again.
There's no reason Ash wouldn't keep traveling just because he won a local league championship. The main character changing is pretty much out of the question, but Ash winning a Pokemon League isn't.
I remember this fucking movie. Latias tugging-around Ash and smiling around him was cute as fuck. I even wondered if Humans can impregnate Pokemon in Human-form
>Inb4 Ash and Latias make a half-ling
This is the very same feeling I had with Shion and Naruto. Damn movie bitches
>Squirtle is off fighting fires and wearing sunglasses at night
>Pidgeot is off keeping viridian forest safe from anything that would fuck with it
>Butterfree is off getting laid
real winner of the Ashbowl coming thru
Would have believed you if it were pic-related.
He only brings back his previously caught Pokemon for league battles. He likes starting a new team per region.
>implying it won't be pic related
OHKO moves in Gen I were dependent on speed, right? If Giovanni's Rhydon was faster than Red's scrub Victreebel, that Horn Drill is forgivable. Not hard to believe considering Origins Red made Snorlax and Kabutops special attackers.
Jolteon is shenanigans, though.
Did you know the creators of pokemon found american kids appreciated the relationships between trainers and pokemon while Japanese kids just wanted collect as many as they could.
He used to be so enthusiastic about catching each and every single new pokemon he saw, even if he was terrible at it. Now, he only wants to catch the pokemon who fuck with him. It's like, he decides "Oh you are a cheeky cunt. I like you, you'll make a good partner."
what the fuck is wrong with you. She's dreadfully generic, annoying, plain and unfunny, and even a bit of a bitch.
One of the worst lolis of recent times in even appearance
even after 16 years, Bart Simpson had his doodle hanging out skateboarding.
So, does like Ash ever grow up/ go to high school to start a harem/ be a crap role model for his kids like Goku?
Will we ever see the Mike Tyson of Ash's pokemone again?
>Iris is a shitty dragon trainer who can't evolve her lousy Axew during her whole appearance
>Ash catches a Goomy and evolves it in 6 episodes
It's hangs out with Oak sometimes
As long we continuously getting episode of him, I'm okay with it.
Mega has been introduced as permanent feature and the future game will add another mega.
