OVA: The Minidjinni of the Word "Appear!": Hoopa (Jun 19)
>This is a story set when Hoopa's companions Barza and Mary were still children. The three of them lived happily together with the villagers in "Arkhē Valley", a place far from Désser City where Hoopa later met Satoshi and the others. Everyone there loved Hoopa's rings, which could make anything and everything appear! One day, the three of them were helping an old woman make donuts. Hoopa's eyes started glittering at the sight of these round treats it had never seen before! But when Hoopa's rings get used to make donuts, things quickly get silly!?
XY Special: The Strongest Mega Evolution Act IV (Fall 2015)
When we will get a special episodes about those two?
>yfw everyone but Ash cries when Goodra is released because he needs to be strong for them
>yfw Ash just keeps all his suffering inside now
>that's what he did in the giant clusterfuck of a loss in BW and his apology to professor oak for doing terribly
he will just protect his own smile like serena did back when she mowed her hair. it is the most fitting way, regardless of your shipping bias.
>yfw there will be an episode where Ash's friends thanks Ash for being strong for them but tells him that is their turn to be strong for him.
I'm kinda excited for the spoopy house now for some reason
THERE ARE SOME PLACES
WHERE MAN WAS NEVER MEANT TO GO
THERE ARE SOME EVILS
WHICH WERE NEVER MEANT TO BE SEEN
Ash and Pikachu were sleeping in a tent and didn't hear their alarm clock, so Hoopa summoned Noivern and a couple other Pokemon to wake them with Boomburst.
I think. Couple hours since it aired.
You a shit. I will concede that her being canonically attracted to Edgy McEdge is similarly shit though.
I came from mid-2022 and saw the events that will happen in Pokemon.
>Pokemon was moved to Friday bc of Naruto's finale. Yuuyama isn't executing anymore
>Actual series started with a timeskip and a reanimated recap of the most important events in the 20 years of Pokémon. The actual series is targeted towards shonen audience. Pokemon merch, episode announcements and manga are now published in Shonen Sunday instead of Coro Coro.
>Every regional pokegirl, except Iris because of reasons, settle down with regional boys (So, GeekChic, Contest and Ikari canon. Specially the first because Serena got over him after discovering he is in a relationship at distance)
>BW final episode's quote about Tracey and Misty in Cerulean was bait.
>Ash is still traveling with Pikachu, but at the same time, he's in a sort of a forced relationship at distance with Misty because she imposed that condition. He is 17 years old and has developed a big fame because he won both the Kalos League, but he refused to challenge the Elite 4 because he said he is still not prepared for a big challenge. However, He became more reckless and iron clad obsessed with his goal and prone to suicidal tendencies because of stress. Sadly, he and his Pokémon develop a strange disease similar to punch-drunk syndrome because of a certain incident against regional evil team. In fact, that disease is the central point of the late 2022's regional league and Champion's league episodes.
>Bonnie starts to develop a strong crush on Ketchum after seeing him on the TV.
>Same for the regional girl. However, she is not travelling with him.
>Regional Team is a bunch of illegal Pokémon speculators. They steal Pokémon that they think are powerful and rare. Their objective is to catch the regional legends and sell them to their leader. However, they have an obsessed interest on Pikachu because of reasons. There is something familiar in the regional team's leader though, because he isn't from Gen VII's region, but from Kanto.
Fuck off nekofag, y'all niggas should know who is best girl...
>tfw no subs of AG169 and AG170
Was feeling nostalgic. I'm sure it was these episodes that served as my introduction to the dark world of shipping. 2cute4me.
>misty in a long distance relationship with ash
Hahahahahaha!!! Nice one m8,best joke I've heard all day
Tell me, why is it that all that sounds like a shit tier fanfiction written by an autistic Pokéshipper?
If you're really from 2022 then tell me, when do we get to see a Fairy Tale Girl in the anime? When do we get to see panty-shots? What is the fate of the dub in 2022, and how does the quality change in the next 7 years?
I'm not lying, anon. In fact, I have some fun facts about the things you are asking about.
>Fairy tale girls don't appear in the anime because that shit is for shoujo anime. However, pantyshots and underwear shots are pretty common in the actual Pokémon series. There are some nudity scenes because Japan has softened its media regulation. However, the central point is the battle, there are bloodier (but not gorier) than past series because of the new target the series is aimed at. Despite still being heavily merchandise driven, it has a better story and a parallel official manga series. Fillers are very rare and the battles are 2 or 6 episodes long depending of the importance.
>Dub has improved very strongly because Viz Media took the rights of Pokemon anime in the 3 Americas. It's aired only on legal streaming though, because Cartoon Network abandoned the rights.
>Animation was still made by OLM (and Studio Cockpit for the most important episodes) for the 1st half of the series. However, because of budget reasons, OLM abandons the series (they are actually focusing on Youkai Watch's season 7 and a new Inazuma Eleven Series). The second half is actually made by Toei Animation (luckily they outsource key episodes to Studio Cockpit and Synergy SP, however, the quality is more inconsistent than before because most of the episodes are outsourced to Toei Phills).
>Tomioka is still the head writer.
XY wouldn't be nearly as good if I weren't sharing each of these moments with you fags.I love you all.[Can't stress how excited I am for League Hype.
Aye, they were still collecting passenger testimonies on New York when I left.
I'm certain that the company will be able to pick itself back up, though. The recent White Star Line advertisements have removed Titanic's name from them, though.
