Excuse me, anons, but fuck you. May was what got us through the entire Advanced series whilst putting up with insufferable lifelong shitcorns like Max, Drew, and Harley. She actually gave a surprising amount of depth to Ash's adventures, embarking on her own unique journey alongside his.
May was awesome.
One of, lets not burn bridges shall we?
So who was she slutty with again?
Are you referring to her habit of being very touchy-feely? Perhaps, but that's only for Ash. That's okay
They're slowly trying to give girls chests again after they got caught red-handed with May's giant knockers. Be careful, ShoPro, don't get caught like you did with May and have to give Serena breast reduction surgery.
I know its just bait, but I shouldn't get this frustrated
Preemptive strike on enemy fleets, hopefully we might even take out a light cruiser
The Manaphy movie was a movie where May shoved Manaphy into her boobs on-screen for about an hour, Ash did some really based superhero shit, and then they beat the crap out of a pirate who looks like he doesn't belong in a Pokemon movie.
I liked it.
Honestly, I'd just attribute it to bad art, her boobs were pretty inconsistently drawn as I recall, everyone just remembers the episodes where they were huge. Then when DP came around they probably just figured they should probably actually make her look 10.
yeah it was just bad animation, they could of stuck with may having tits but maybe they just thought it was cheaper to make her flat as a boy. but you know does jesses tits ever change or have they mastered her body down?
>i mean its japan, they dont care about that shit.
Pretty Cure had to severely tone down fanservice to the point here they couldn't even show the girls in swimsuits due to parental complaint.
I have a question i haven't watched this shit since season 1 but is misty forgotten completely now or is there still eps with her or special ones. Also since they always change the girl character why wasn't the black and white girl with the sexy shorts used as a partner? who was the girl partner for the black and white seasons ?
>I have a question i haven't watched this shit since season 1 but is misty forgotten completely now or is there still eps with her or special ones.
Ash has flashbacked to her twice during the last year of BW, with one of the flashbacks having newly recorded dialogue. She also gets referenced every now and then.
>Also since they always change the girl character why wasn't the black and white girl with the sexy shorts used as a partner?
Because BW a shit
>who was the girl partner for the black and white seasons ?
What. I dont believe this. I mean they have normal anime and harems all over tv and this is japan, why would they care. I thought japan didnt give a shit or are they becoming worse now. Its really sad they are becoming Americanized.
BECAUSE MEGA GLALIE IS TOTALLY HAPPENING
>BUT MUH MEGA ZARD Y ASH
>MUH MEGA SCEPTILE
>GUYZ GIBLE WILL SURE EVOLVE INTO GARCHOMP
>MUH FITE BUGE
FUCK THAT SHIT MEGA GLALIE IS THE ONLY RIGTH CHOICE
You seem to forget that Pokemon is a kid's kid anime, probably aimed at like the 6/7+ year olds or whatever, and there's probably some parents that plop their 3 year olds in front of it too. It's not going to get the same treatment as a shounen anime aimed for young boys or those shitty harem series that are aimed at...I don't fucking know, teenage boys and probably some NEETs?
I don't know anything about Pretty Cure though.
Oh right they used the random black girl. was the sexy shorts girl in it at all? Also if they making ash remember her, might she come back as a partner? will this show ever actually end? if so maybe the last season will just have misty and brock back?
but i thought more adults watched pretty cure then kids in japan.
yeah but japan use to not care about "the kids" even pokemon had more mature content at first in season 1 , then it got released in america and they wanted to make it american friendly to make the big bucks.
Its not about lolicons, just that ive watched older anime that was for kids and it was just as mature as stuff for older men. japan didnt care about that shit back then. 80s anime had naked women all the time.also just a bit ago ive hread pretty cure or what ever was mostly watched by otaku. not like i would waste my time watching it though. didnt the creator of one piece want to kill pretty cure? so inst pretty cure more popular with older men/kids/whatever then anything? so why would they lower the fanservice (if there really was any of that) if they might lose viewers?
Based director confirmed for rescuing May's chest
There's this thing in Japanese culture (actually somewhat in Asian culture in general because you see this a bit in Chinese/Korean stuff too) where if its nudity or dirty jokes involving little kids (see something like Crayon Shin-Chan or Doraemon) it's innocuous, cute, or funny, because it's not explicitly there to be sexually arousing for the viewer, it's more about little kids being kids.
Stiff like bouncing titties and obviously fetishized lolicon characters are made for an obvious purpose and those are considered something different entirely, especially if it's a kid's show.
It's kind of hard to explain accurately, I guess.
>might she come back as a partner?
>will this show ever actually end?
>if so maybe the last season will just have misty and brock back?
brock is gone already and misty is well god knows where
how is your first day in 4chan treating you?
Rosa only appeared in the animated trailer for BW2, and Hilda didn't appear at all. Misty only appeared in flashbacks in relation to other Pokemon, and was never referenced directly. That other anon is lying. Brock went off to be a doctor instead, but he was part of the party until DP, and he appeared in a special.
Don't get your hopes up; they're not coming back anytime soon.
you think if blue and red get remade fucking again they will jump on bringing them back for more views? wouldn't bringing them back increase views like crazy? think they are just saving it for the right time? maybe when this happens the show will have some soul again like season 1? I maybe the last season will actually be good. unless it just doesn't just get canceled. I mean how can you just watched all these random eps when you know fucking nothing will happen? inst there like a 1000 now? Whats the point if the content is soulless and boring going nowhere? romance could of saved this show but its a kids show now as when season 1 it could of been for a bit older kids since it was still just coming out.
Well as far as i know anything for kids older then like 6 or 8 i guess can have anything from tits to anything mature going on because i know japan is more liberal with their content. I guess pokemon became a show for 5 year olds now.
>you think if blue and red get remade fucking again they will jump on bringing them back for more views?
people thought May would be back for ORAS yet she isn't. the anime has been doing fine views wise without either of them. Hell to most viewers of the anime misty ranks pretty low on the anime characters as memorable.
>maybe when this happens the show will have some soul again like season 1
you can blame the anime for just being a marketing tool, that it likes cohesion or that Ash is bad character because he never a league and shit. But the anime as it is right now is far from soulless.
Welcome to 4chan, may we know from what previous online community you came? Therefore we can calibrate a proper welcoming and transition package for you.
Am i the only one who just stopped watching it once sliver and gold season started , as a kid i even noticed hoe soulless and boring it became. its funny because sliver and gold is one of the best pokemon games yet the show just started to turn awful around then. I dont even want to know how bad ruby seasons were, i was just not even paying attention to pokemon as a show around then. but everything after the orange league was soulless or even the orange league started to be like that.
We'll get one
I'm also hoping a remix of the gym music closer to the game emerges. Oh, and the pre-battle thing for the gym leaders, that's awesome
It's more of a thing only Americans have issues with.
Pic related is from a Danish childrens' show that I've never seen anyone ever complain about being "unsuitable" for kids. It's just a cute joke.
>romance could of saved this show but its a kids show now as when season 1 it could of been for a bit older kids since it was still just coming out.
Take a guess what they're doing in XY?
>not taking "gay" as meaning gay bro Cilan
Everyday I pray Iris is throw to the side and the glorious return of homo bro
>implying he can't promote ORAS by crossdressing into a TriPokalon
Same reason Ash turns to look at Serena during Shalour even though Bonnie's cheering is muffled.
because she wants to win teh ashbowl
May coming back, them talking alone under a starlit sky
Just because the ass was fat, and her thighs are delicious, does not mean fat
I love those thick legs. Based Sugimori. Better than Ohmura's twigs.
>yfw if it weren't for Ohmura that foot scene in episode 40 wouldn't be as crazy detailed
Ash has been crossing lines as well with that hand-holding he does to help Serena across the small gaps in episode 11 and the movie, even though Bonnie got across just fine.
Serena is such useless cunt. You could remove her and next episode you would not notice she is missing. What is she even in this anime for? Who the hell gives a fuck about performing? Thats the most boring shit Ive ever come across as a goal for a main character in this show. Jesus fucking christ. Bring back Dawn or May so we can have a girl with a real goal. At least contest battles are actually fucking interesting. Stop wasting time giving new Pokemon to Serena. They are useless to her as she is useless herself.
Ash knows he wants it this time
She wants it
Everyone wants it
>trying this hard
You're just jealous because she's going to win the Ashbowl and you aren't.
Well, this screen came up and Clemont is MIA in the second preview.
I'm referring to the sanpei episode. That shows the timid members of our group falling off a cliff. I'm sure some of them are excited by the prospect of them being alone together or some shit.
Well, Sanpei and Greninja are there, so it'll be that they do the rescuing or if they do get separated, they're used as hostages, which is why Ash battles along side Sanpei and we get Froakie evolving.
Why does the hostage keep coming up? Serena and Clemont aren't helpless.
I dunno, if they don't get saved...t just seems like an excuse to have them separated from the group to try and build something between them and try and phase out Amour.
>build something between them and try and phase out Amour
They're trying to bait because the second preview had Clemont missing, which kind of threw the bait right out the window.
>search up Antrax on Google
>Los Ántrax is an enforcer gang of the Mexican drug trafficking organization known as the Sinaloa Cartel.
>Ash finally wins the pokemon league at the end of the kalos series, but this means there will still be a fuckload of filler between gyms
>Ash loses in the pokemon league (either in the semifinals or the final battle) but he goes to the kalos battle frontier and wins there
>implying we cant have both
>already guaranteed a spot as Frontier Brain
>implying Serena's shojou magic won't have him win the League
>implying said filler can't be used for more Amour
Think about it.
>huur hurr Ash can't romance
>Serena and Clemont aren't permanent characters.
>Serena feelings for Ash are unrequited.
>Serena and Clemont are the same age.
Honestly, it seems like such an obvious setup to eventually phase Amour out.
>not even trying to make the bait coherent with the conversation
You know it will happen
Valerie needs a bff after all
You're right. By the looks of things Ash and Serena's feelings have been getting stronger for each other with her being rescued by him so much and him pretty much doing better than normal because of her.
>8:00 AM Pokemon Series: XY 1.473 mil (XY039)
Summer camp arc episode one dub ratings are in. Holy fucking SHIT! We went up by over 220,000 viewers alone! This is the biggest leap in viewership yet (possibly the highest in the season thus far) and you can credit that to the friend trio more than anything else.
Perhaps the only negative thing about this week is that the dub does not have a weekly ratings note this week. Everything other than that is swell.
No one is worse
Elesa is beloved everywhere
WE DOING IT AGAIN
EVEN THE DUB IS ROCKETING TO HEAVEN
XY IS TOO STRONG
BASED FEMALE ANIMATION STAFF
Landlubber here, I'm genuinely curious and this goes out to all the Amourfags here...do you guys even consider Clemont a potential threat to your favorite ship given there seems to be no Drew so far?
But there will be a reason
Well, I guess Im pretty far deep an Armour, but its not my main ship. That said, I just don't see her and Clemont being a thing. Like seriously, even stretching the limits of NTR, I don't see Clemont swooping in.
Funny enough, people in Japan aren't exactly that big on Clemont and Serena. You get a few people here and there but really there's not much support for it. It's hardly talked about in Twitter and Pixiv doesn't really get many hits. It hasn't even broken 75k views. Even so, the writers seem to be trying to go full force with making Ash and Serena a thing.
That's not how you spell Korrina.
There is nothing to fear. Korrina is banished to the friend zone.
Popularity never truly dictates endgame, if that were the case Ash/Misty woulsd have been a thing long ago. The twitter for them seemed to get a bit more active after the cliff scene from the preview, but I of course have no clue what the fuck they are saying.
She's still incredibly unstable and incredibly dangerous.
No, but at the same time from what was talked about long ago one of the writers went on to 2ch when shit hit the fan with B/W. So if anything the writers seem to be paying closer attention to fans, but in that regard, Ash/Misty isn't really much anymore. As of now, it's Ash/Dawn and Ash/Serena. As for the Twitter, there are some talking about whether there'd be a moment between Ash and Bonnie and Clemont and Serena, but they're also talking how Sanpei's around during that time.
She is in a dangerous place
It is understandable she would react like a cornered wild dog
She needs to be spayed
> she would react like a cornered wild dog
> implying that isn't Korrina's secret fetish
> She needs to be spayed
Too late. What comes next will obliterate tarnation.
I suppose, I just feel that if the writers are looking for ways to phase Amour out, their first option would be Clemont, if only to keep the romance element around. Because, let's face it, there's likely going to be no Drew. And the writers would likely use Pamperchu as an easy way out.
No, people who think otherwise are obviously not aware of what kind of show they are watching.This show is as simple as it can be.
It doesn't even matter if Amour happens or not, they won't make Serena fall for another guy, as that'd make the girl look hopeless and desperate for anyone's D, and they don't want that. If anything, and if nothing really happens with Ash thus Serena's feelings remain unrequited, the thing will be resolved with Serena deciding to focus more on her goal, and the amour thing will be put on the back burner.
The crush is part of her character, but that doesn't mean the show has gone romance. They are promoting the Amourship hard tho, what would be the point of making that if they wanted to dump it at the first opportunity? or do people really think they will be releasing a Geekchic Valentine's poster at some point down the road?
Even geekchic fanart is incapable of showing Serena being attracted to Clemont.
