Thread begins with best girl.
OK, but you need to post with the right image.
Gotta go, I'll leave the last request I delivered just in case that anon haven't see it yet. Later guys.
Go away Misty
>no more amour until next year
>omode didn't bother with spaghetti in her last episode
>amourfags caling the episode bad and getting butthurt because they didn't get shipping in their precious performance
Yes, she did
Also, I see Bunnelby is still the only Pokemon with Eevee.
Too many investments are being made in the wrong places if you keep extrapolating the anime based on the current status quo.
i definitely ship amour, but i dont want it to be spoonfed to us every episode. I like the pace of it. These last few episodes, especially bonnies episode, are really nice and good fillers to watch.
I like AG's humor better. AG's atmosphere was very similar to the OS, obviously because it came directly after, but it still had the focus on battles with Ash evolving his pokemon, May being consistently developed and Contests, as well.
Also Brock and Team Rocket were still funny in AG, which is more than you can say for what they became after.
1. DP Ash was rebooted to idiot Ash for Unova like his journey was all new again in kanto
2. Iris, the female companion who i call jungle girl, is the worst companion of all time who spends her time making fun of ash by calling him a little kid when she is being a huge hypocrite by being an awful trainer herself
3. Terrible gay cook named Cilan whos the first gym leader with his 2 brothers who travels with Ash like Brock did who makes stupid comparisons to battles with food.
4. Ash loses a lot of battles
5. Annoying rival named Trip who is gary 2.0 and paul 2.0 mixed together in a bad way
6. Worst gym battle of all time next to Korrina where he has to use all 6 pokemon against Roxie who only uses 3 with the cheapest strategy ever by poisoning every pokemon as Ash barely wins.
6. Terrible league match between ash and trip in order to just participate in the unova league
7. Ash loses at his worst in the top 8
8. Oshawott a shit
I know there's more but i can't remember it all
What kind of personality do you like then? I'm honestly curious. May probably had the perfect blend of all the females personality traits, because she could be both girly and tomboyish at the same time, she was feisty and cute, she could be badass or clumsy.
Honestly I thought May had the best balanced personality of them all. I mean I also really liked Dawn, Serena, and pre-Johto Misty, but May takes the cake.

that was my other mistake anon. I didn't start watching the sub till Kalos started. I normally wouldve tried watching bw in japanese but the atrocity of the show being so bad, it isnt worth trying to watch it again. All i know that i missed was apparantly elesa in those seductive outfits she wore
Well fuck that's a lot. Thanks for typing all that up for me man. I'll continue to never see an episode of it.
That alone is enough for me.
Well I thought Dawn was ok.
I guess my tier list would be
Dawn>Misty>May (never seen an episode with Iris)
But really I don't love or hate any of them.
Serena looks cute though.
You got "Terrible gay cook named Cilan who makes stupid comparisons to battles with food." instead of fabulous gay bro Dent.
He was one of the few goodish things about BW. The dub fucked him over hard.
right. And yes, elesa and Ash's gym match was god awful since Ash was only thinking of using one pokemon for the entire match. be honest, what sexy scenes of elesa was in the japanese version that i missed. i made the horrible mistake of watching the dub before i started watching the subs in kalos
It's been a while since I watched the episodes with her so who knows if I would still feel the same way about her. I guess I just thought she was bland when I watched it. And I didn't like her dub voice.
yeah. Just continue from sinnoh onto kalos since Kalos ash is a huge upgrade from unova ash. Dawn is my second favorite character behind Serena. Dawn has the best friendship with Ash. The average order for us is this:
Veronica Taylor's May was voice was very cute and sweet. She put a lot of enthusiasm into May's character.
Probably one of the few dub voices I like almost as much as the Japanese Kaori voice.
not that anon, but I watched subs all I remember about Dent was his love of trains and his annoying 'this has x taste' gag
maybe he would have worked better if he'd been with a cast he could play off of a bit better, BW Ash was dumb as a rock and Iris was Iris
im not shitposting at all. i explained in the last thread how i thought its cheap and pathetic that Korrina needs to use a mega evolved Lucario to fight Ash's pikachu and she still lost. if youre talking about the scenes and how the battle looked, its fantastic and the best so far, but in terms of how the rules were applied to korrina cheating like that when Ash doesn't have a mega evolved pokemon, is just pathetic and a cheap advantage. It tells me Korrina couldnt win the match without cheating, thats why i think korrina is the worst gym leader of all
>korrina cheating like that when Ash doesn't have a mega evolved pokemon, is just pathetic and a cheap advantage
Ash had literally lost to her 3 times by then and he wanted to fight her at her best. what are you on anon?
im that anon. I still didnt start watching the subs until kalos. I didn't know about the subs being so much better than the dubs till unova ended. I always knew the dubs were god awful since the new voice actors came in the middle of the battle frontier. Unova is too god awful that it isnt worth my time trying to watch the subs at this point. The only reason id consider it is to see how sexy elesa was in the episode of her show since apparantly the dubs took that scene off
Him using wine terminology to describe atmosphere and personality had a certain logic and charm to it.
The dub had to censor it all out because wine is alcoholic and we can't have that in Pokemon, so they had him say dumb shit like "he called that move with the care of a chef removing a hot souffle from an oven" and similar nonsense.
And really I don't have any strong opinions of the pokegirls.
I like the pokemon more.
That being said. Is the Braixen a cutie?
Ah I guess I might just have bad taste.
It make sense from a writing standpoint to give most of her connections to the guy she loves. Why give her connections with other guys if she's not in love with them?
Doing otherwise is contradictory writing.
mega evolving and just evolving are two completely different things. You can at least choose whether or not your pokemon will or will not mega evolve. Don't forget, Korrina just expects lucario to do his own thing by just yelling, "HIT!HIT!HIT!" she learned the hard way that its a dumb strategy and almost cried about it. When she finally learns to strategize she loses. Also it doesnt matter if pikachu lost before to lucario. If lucario gains so much more strength and speed as it mega evolves, and still loses to a pikachu who was already hurt before in battle after it quickly took down both hawlucha and hinoyakoma, then it shows lucario sucks. korrinas lucario made me start hating lucarios since they are actually overrated. Korrina in general is just a terrible trainer since she doesn't really help lucario with what to do until the gym match where she lost.
are you implying pikachu x nene will lead into something?
Having Serena and Clemont's Pokemon interact seems to be just a way to give them SOME kind of connection. The two have little interaction and don't even seem like friends half of the time. It's almost as bad as Brock was with Dawn
Sorry for replying to bait
That doesn't mean that Korrina "cheated " (unless you have a different, autistic definition of what cheating is). That just means that either she's a shit leader that made her Mega Lucario lose to a Pikachu, or that Ash is great trainer that made his Pikachu win against a Mega Lucario.
>Bonnie not ending up with onii-chan
Absolutely disgusting fam
dont forget, lucario gained more strength. i dont remember if her used power up punch or swords dance but he gains more strength and still lost. Thats my problem. You choose to mega evolve a pokemon to beat a pikachu and still lose. That really would hurt my pride. Thats how bad of a trainer korrina really is.
when your pokemon just evolves, thats alright because you can't change that, it chooses to get stronger by evolving for you, but when you willingly use a lucarionite to mega evolve your lucario to fight pikachu even though he beat pikachu previously, it comes around like saying, oh i cant beat you, i need to mega evolve it and make it an unfair advantage since i can just choose to mega evolve it since you can't. its steroids for a pokemon. Korrina had the most boring arc ever as well. I wanted to like korrina but her story arc and the way she decided to battle ruined it for me. thats the only complaint i have about xy
Which gave Bravest Ballerina her first Gym KO, to be fair.
Which reminds me. Since Ash is certain to use Talonflame against Wulfric, it will have been in every Gym besides the Browbowl. Ash sure loves that bird
She mega evolved it to beat all three of Ash's Pokemon not just pikachu, and it was weakened a lot by a super effective flame charge from fletchinder
Mega luke still won two of three which is impressive given the flame charge. while pikachu beat mega luke without looking OP because pikachu was at full strength and mega luke was already weakened by flame charge
git gud faggot
if pikachu was stronger, how did lucario beat it 2 or 3 times before the gym match? Even if Lucario and korrina were trying a new strategy by giving commands more often, don't you think its the same for ash? he always tries new strategies to beat his opponents, but add in a mega pokemon who powers up even more, and still loses? both korrina and lucario are god awful as a trainer and gym leader. Look at the other gym leaders, they dont need to use mega evolution to beat and defend their gym, korrina does. It shows she cant win without it. If Ash had the chance to mega evolve one of his pokemon to face mega lucario, then it would be a totally different opinion for me. I'd love that so much and id be here today saying it was probably the best of all, but when its lopsided, then its pathetic and cheap
It was barely weakened at all, when it guarded Pikachu's Iron Tail (which it resisted by 4x) with a Bone Rush and still got fucked up in the process.
Because Pikachu git gud? Isn't that an easy question?
Clemont > Korrina > Viola > Grant > Ramos > Valerie
Ramos (fucker used a Chlorophyll strat in the anime) > Clemont (dat Heliolisk) > Viola (badass Surskit ice field) > Korrina (Focus Miss Guts Machoke) > Valerie (sets Trick Room, then just dicks about not using it) > Grant (I can't even remember what it was outside of shoot meteors/rocks everywhere)
She lost because her other two pokemon were shit, not because she or her lucario is shit
The mega luke nearly took out all three of ash's mons even after getting hit by a super effective flame charge. It was picking up the slack for mienfoo and machoke, those two are the weaklings here, not lucario
dude, lucario was barely affected by flame charge which is also a weak fire type attack mainly meant for rasing your speed. It took an iron tail thats 4x's weaker to a steel and fighting type, and still lost after all of his attacks failed against pikachu at the end. now think, bone rush to the head vs iron tail which is barely effective at all, and yet pikachu wins. pikachu is strong but obviously mega lucario is stronger. it shows how bad mega lucario and korrina are overall.
It was pretty boring, a lot of time was wasted on the quiz portion and Eevee being ridiculous. It had a few cute moments scattered in it, Meowth winning without cheating was nice, what little of Shauna's performance we saw was cute, and it didn't have too many QUALITY moments like the Tyrantrum episode. Even though I dislike Eevee, that part of the episode was nicely animated.
Serena did win.
Nene lost within the first round.
lucario WAS affected a lot by the flame charge. it even said so in the dialogue AND it's super effective against lucario which is a steel type.
just stop you are making yourself look like an idiot, it's like you didn't watch the episode
Because Mega Lucario was better off battling on his own and Korrina was shit at handling its Mega Evo. And her other Pokemon weren't a great thing, either. And XY's Ash is that good.
You're one of those guys who never liked Mega Evolutions in the first place, right?
>disliking puffiest vulva
Flying types aren't really "immune" to ground type attacks, it's just how flying types are mostly skybound and not on the ground thus can't be "hit" by the ground.
If you use Roost and then the opponent does a ground type attack, you can get hit by them still.
>She lost because her other two pokemon were shit
dude, hawlucha took a lot of damage by them as well as hinoyakoma. Granted they were sluggish trying the dancing tactics from tierno, but calling them shit and bad overall is an insult. they did their job to weaken them and set them up for lucario, who still lost to a pikachu. thats my problem. personality wise i dont hate korrina at all, i hate her as a trainer and gym leader. flame charge is a weak fire type move to begin with. its main purpose is to raise its speed. its only a 50 physical power fire type attack.
trap fast opponents in rock tomb then squish. sadly Ash had already planned ahead after seeing it used once and made counter strat that rendered it (and aura sphere) moot. korrina had no strategy besides "hit hard, use mega" which is why Ash had her 3-0 until the mega came out.
it's either a shitposter or some idiot who has no clue about type advantages/disadvantages or korrina's other pokemon
plus he keeps saying Pikachu was already weakened which is false, and acts like lucario was fresh which is false
theyre going to think that but just stating it doesnt guarantee it dude. i can say the same thing but it doesnt one hit ko them. remember lucario has a better defense than special defense and flame charge is physical, add that to a mega evolution, then youre going to take less damage overall.
don't take the game's type match up too seriously
flying type pokemon are immune to ground attacks because they can fly to dodge them, but realistically flying types could still get hit if they are on the ground (eg: charizard taking damage from golem's magnitude while on the ground and had to fly to avoid taking more damage)
hawlucha can't fly and bone rush is just hitting your opponent with a bone lightsaber so there's no reason why hawlucha should be immune to it
In my opinion, that gym battle was complete bullshit with Mega Lucario who used to rape his pokemon losing on a 1v1 against Pikachu, but at least Ash didn't go full retard.
the dancing shit was shit, I agree, but it wasn't that bad because it only lasted for the beginning with jobbing bird.
The 50 is doubled to 100 because fletchinder has the type advantage against lucario
plus 50 isn't "weak" to begin with...20 or 30 is weak
a weakened mega lucario lost to a fresh Pikachu. that's what happened, that's what the freaking dialogue says, that's what the type advantages and math says but you're ignoring all of it
Ignore "You're a big guy"
Unless you're actually a big guy irl. Post height.
I just realized, what about Blaziken Mask, does anyone think he'll sjow up in this TF arc?
Will he protect Clemont and Bonnie?
thank you. If Ash had a pokemon he could mega evolve to face mega lucario, id have a different opinion overall. I would be here today saying it was the best gym match ever! but having one mega evolve and the other not, shows its a cheap tactic that she cant win without an unfair advantage
like i said, take into consideration that in the show, it doesnt always follow the power of an attack while adding defense to mega lucario in the show, and dont forget, pikachu was at a disadvantage because of bone rush which is super effective and still won against mega lucario. thats my problem. If you mega evolve your pokemon against someone who cant, you're just telling me you're too soft and cant handle the battle without an unfair advantage
pretty much. She basically cant beat Ash unless its with an unfair advantage. That's my only complaint about mega evolution that should be fixed with a new rule. You can only mega evolve one pokemon in a battle if the opponent can mega evolve one of his pokemon too
But pikachu wasn't hit by bone rush. It was hit by aura sphere and it blocked a bone rush with iron tail
>it doesnt always follow the power of an attack while adding defense to mega lucario in the show
It DOES follow here, for the 100th time the explicitly says so in the dialogue to clarify that flame charge was super effective and dealt a lot of damage, serena and korrina both have lines of dialogue that explicitly point this out. that is the canon explanation, and what you're saying is "Wahh, it doesn't feel right, therefore it's officially wrong and the battle sucks!"
There is no distinction between choosing to mega evolve and choosing to use a fully evolved mon. That's an artificial barrier you're drawing. basically all gym battles should then consist of pokemon of the same evolution stage because otherwise it's cheating. you're a moron
Because Lucario had an offscreen battle against Hawlucha, whose Flying Press is 4x effective against him, and Fletchinder hit him with a Flame Charge. Keep in mind that Flame Charge was casually destroying cliffs during the Fletchinder battle, so it's as strong as Lucario's bone rush, which destroyed a mountain top.
Pikachu was also exerting himself far more in this fight than in the previous ones. That scene where Pikachu let off a massive electrical discharge meant that he's taking it way more serious than the previous battles.
Also, the last two battle were casual matches, and Ash is obviously going to care more about winning a gym battle since more is at steak.
Then I have a rule...you can't use a fully evolved pokemon against a not fully evolved pokemon. whether the evolution is permanent or not is irrelevant, what matters is that you can choose to use it or not use it
youre the idiot who still doesnt understand my point. If a pokemon just evolves, thats fine, you cant change that, the pokemon is evolving for you to keep fighting, but when you choose to mega evolve them against their will to fight, thats pathetic and cheap. you indirectly admit you cant win unless you have an unfair advantage. thats why it should be a rule where you can only mega evolve a pokemon if the opponent can mega evolve their pokemon as well
If you were writing Amour, would you make her Pokemon connected to Ash or Clemont.
It only makes sense to do it ONLY with Ash because of their subplot unless you have ulterior motives.
again your point is meaningless. whether the evolution is permanent or not is irrelevant. with your logic anyone could say it's cheating to use a fully evolved mon against a non fully evolved mon
youre still not getting the point. youre bringing up random excuse at this point involving normal pokemon when the trainer knows that you can choose any pokemon in any evolution stage except mega evolution. Imagine this, someone uses a normal pokemon, against another normal pokemon. he is about to lose, he decides fuck it ill mega evolve and he wins. thats just stupid and cheap and i consider it cheating since he cant win without it. he cant win in a fair 1v1. thats how i feel about korrina. she indirectly proved she cant win without it
>this much complaining about the hypest moment in the series so far which shat all over a status quo established in DP and painfully enforced in BW which the added bonus of also being the first battle where a mega is defeated by a non-mega
Some of you guys are alright. Don't get out of your Pokeballs next episode if you get called out by one of the humans.
Happening thread will be posted next thursday.
So long fellow pokemon.
so youre just admitting you cant win a battle without a cheap advantage that needs a mega evolution. youre just tossing aside the statements i made with another excuse that doesnt fit my terms at all. its if i said i send in 2 pokemon against one of yours. youre trying to make it sound that way when it isnt. korrina is a bad trainer overall and the second worst gym match right behind roxie
it's literally one shitter who keeps saying mega evolution is "unfair" because "it's not permanent!" he already showed us he doesn't understand what actually happened in that battle, he ignored the canon of the anime and all the type advantages, and he draws an arbitrary line between which forms of evolution are "cheating" because "uhhh mega evolution isn't permanent!"
So anons, with this "ominous" feel, what do you think realistically could or will (or what do you want to) be made out of it?
>giving the worrying impression that something bad is going to happen; threateningly inauspicious.
i dont fully agree with this guy, but i do see his point. hes just some nerd who has his own ego on winning. i find korrina boring overall because of her arc training to contain mega lucario's battle. other than that im fine with it.
nope, didn't admit anything. it's not a "cheap" advantage at all. mega evolving is a something that a trainer must work hard to achieve, just as a trainer must work hard to get his pokemon to evolve to the last stage.
sending in a second pokemon isn't even comparable at all. not sure what you're smoking
>second worst gym battle
The animation quality alone makes it better than 2/3 of all the gym battles.
And either you're a really try hard baiter which would be pretty pathetic or you think a gym battle is the worst only because you hate the gym leader and completely ignore the other factors that determine if its a good gym battle or not. Which is fucking retarded.
if you're using a fully evolved Pokemon to fight someone who has NFE mon, that proves you're weak and have an unfair advantage because you need a stronger pokemon to win
now fuck off
i explained before saying if youre talking about animations and how the battle looks, its one of the best if not the best overall, but trainer wise between korrina and lucario who lost to a pikachu, shes the worst behind roxie which was a bullshit battle that made me hate unova even more
your logic is just bad with that excuse. those pokemon can fully powerup and evolve to be powerful, but when theyre both fully evolved and one mega evolves, then thats just cheap. you guys keep using the same excuse that doesnt fit with this logic. you guys lost anyways.
because being able to slow hinoyakoma with its arms and barely being pushed aside counts as so much damage overall with a move meant for increasing speed against a mega evolved lucario.
if a trainer doesn't have a mega evolved pokemon to use against their opponent's mega, that's his own damn fault for not getting one, not the fault of his opponent. now fuck off.
that doesnt mean shit. Since a mega lucario still lost to a pikachu that has no buffs, or cant mega evolve, it shows how pathetic lucario really is as well as korrina who still couldnt win with an advantage, fair or not in your case
>all this autism
Just drop that shit already and look forward to the new gym battle in two weeks instead.
it doesn't matter whether in your own personal universe that flame charge is weak. officially it's not weak. and it doesn't matter whether licario was holding up his hands. the move still hit, and it still dealt a lot of damage, and korrina and serena both stated so in order to inform the viewers.
it lost to pikachu after being weakened SIGNIFICANTLY by a move with STAB of 150. your head canon that flame charge is "weak" does not apply.
no, it shows that mega lucario lost to one pokemon after defeating two of ash's, which actually shows its strength. and it finally lost only after it suffered a lot of damage at the hands of ash's fletchinder
>finally new HD shots of Olympia!
>she's fucking terrifying
in this battle they didn't break that rule. when serena literally says "[that flame charge] was super-effective!" and korrina remarks how powerful the flame charge was, that's what matters, not some autist whose head canon says "flame charge is weak because i say so, i don't care what the anime canon says!"
fine, ill concede defeat on this discussion. i guess my pride got in the way this time. i personally just find it unfair to have that extra advantage when others dont. i just didnt like how ash made lucario and korrina look pathetic when it gives you that extra boost.
>tfw as much as I like the hype in XY and battles, Ash has no personality like he did in OS and AG
When will we ever have snarky Ash again? He doesn't seem to have a sense of humor anymore.
I remember one time someone asked Veronica at a convention which female protagonist she liked most. The person asking was obviously a Pokeshipper since Veronica voiced Ash and assumed she would say Misty.
But of course Veronica said May because she played the character. I think there's a lot of people out there who for some reason never knew Veronica played May.
Of course all these memes. Don't you know what year is this?
>But he doesn't seem to have much of a personality now
TIL not being an hotheaded, incompetent kid makes you have no personality
>TIL being a mature, competent leader is not having a personality
Fuck off with this shit. You're saying that you like his personality then. Saying that he doesn't have any now is just pure asspulling bullshit. If you like immature Ash, fine by me but don't be retarded and say that a more mature and competent Ash is having no personality. If anything it's showing character development.
Me and a friend were talking about recent developments and something he said scared me.
>"What if Z version makes the ashnime canon?"
At first I did the right thing and called him a faggot but then he brought up the fact that the ORAS included a direct reference to some character named Alain. who fought rayqauyza with steven or whatever stupid shit this show pulls.
This unnerved me but even if this Alain guy exists it could just be a game counter part and thus unimportant so I just rolled with it.
Then the Ashnime pulled this shit. Now I shouldn't have to explain why Ash turning into a pokemon or a pokemon turning into Ash is fucking stupid even by Ashnime standards but I do have to point out that if this "Ash greninja" makes it into even one game the shitty anime becomes canon to the games in some form or fashion. That's disgusting since the Origin acts as the new Red version Ash ketchum being canon already conflicts with lore. Sure they can make a retcon "Game exclusive" Ash but at the end of the day it's still that worthless loser in a canon where he doesn't belong. the idea of Ash fucking ketchum making a physical appearance is sickening.
I'm absolutely mortified at the idea that Ash and this "Alain" guy could be canon because it symbolizes a dark age for the pokemon franchise where the anime finally devoured the games, leaving only the manga safe from it. but what's to stop it there? how long until we get pokespe special Ash edition? where the Z protagonist in the XY series is just Ash and his Ash greninja? This is the future people like you are enabling for not vocally opposing the shitty anime and actually supporting the garbage!
I actually didn't know until I started browsing Pokémon forums, dude. It wasn't like Brock-James-Seto Kaiba (where you can clearly hear the similarity in the VA), but then again I might have just been
denseat the time.
Shy fucker deserves to get bullied
No one likes Ash ketchum. he's garbage, shit. if the anime had starred red from the get go and swapped protagonists the anime would have been GOAT. instead we got a shitty doraemon clone that managed to become a even shittier action show and is now copying naruto or something.
Ash ketchum and the ashnime was the worst thing to happen to pokemon
I'm sorry mate are you talking about Ash Ketchum?
I don't think you're talking about OS pity badge battler Ash Ketchum
I don't think you're talking about team leader AG Ash Ketchum
I don't think you're talking about "two legends required to stop this rape train" DP Ash Ketchum
Fuck if only you were talking about reset retard BW Ash Ketchum
But you're talking about "the only thing I love more than being walking inspiration for everyone within 5 feet is tasting the sweet nectar of my defeated adversaries, and serena." XY Ash Ketchum literally "dick so potent grown women would choose me over a grown up athletic black guy" Ash Ketchum. "Rival is another word for person I rape harder than I do serena in her wet dreams" Ash ketchum, mother fucking "trainer game so ridiculous my Pokemon mega evolve into me" Ash Ketchum which means we have a big fucking problem
>F4 was a flop
>Ash is still practicing for the mr fantastic role
>while Valerie was aesthetically an ayy lmao Olympia embraces it and becomes a literal ufo
Did she just take them to her gym and brought sycamore and his fuck buddies alongside?
Why is Serena in front of the group?
Omode does the majority of the Amour stuff, and Tomioka usually does worried waifu alongside Fujita. Yonemura is a slacker with Amour, and Ohashi doesn't seem to give a fuck about it...so he does none at all.
I heard about anime generals being filled with same few bait stock images posting but this is now plain ridiculous, you didn't even quote.
Holy fuck, truly a containment general for autists.
Why we need to waste time on Eevee coming to like Chespin is beyond me. Team Flare is far more important.
And I thought Eevee's goal was to get comfortable around everyone, not just Chespin
Serena is going to look smoking hot in this Eva Suit
I just watched the new episode while I was drawing. Man, Duplica got fat.
Damn she's really cute, I wish she would appear again
I'll never understand how Duplica got popular. She was in one Kanto filler and appeared again in a Johto filler and that was it.
Yet somehow people still remember and bring up this character 18 years later.
1 episode was enough
>More cute, sexy and girly than Misty
>Did I say cute, sexy and girly than Misty? Oh yeah
I just did a shit ton of math
Let's say the Zygarde plotline of XYZ ends with the movie next July? Most if not all of those episodes will be dedicated to the introduction, rising actions, and finale of Team Flare's arc which is about 31 episodes from November 12th to July 7th which is the last week before the movie.
Then the rest of those 52 episodes are dedicated to one or two Tripokalons, the Master Class, Honedge's capture, Wulfric's gym battle and introduction, the Kalos League episodes, and whatever else the writers decide to throw at us.
So, my question to you guys is, what episodes are you hoping for in these last estimated 83 episodes of XYZ
Wait...what? You think the Team Flare and Zygarde stuff will go on for over 8 months?
I don't see Team Flare getting more than about 9 episodes. Even Team Galactic only got 9 episodes back in DP, Team Plasma and Magma/Aqua the same. The writers never give that many episodes to the villains in any gen.
And don't we have hints that Ash will battle Wulfric by December? That means by January Ash will already be heading toward the league and Serena's last few showcases.
>I don't see Team Flare getting more than about 9 episodes.
Are you serious? We already know of like 3 different instances of when Ash and the gang run into Team Flare
9 episodes? You honestly think the main shit promoted on the XYZ poster will be covered by the end of this year?
>Ash improving badass battle skills
>Amour resolution, because it has to be resolved in some way even if that means Serena leaving, they can't just leave this in nothing
Had it not been for breaks, Episode N would have lasted all the way up to the Genesect movie. Unlike Episode N, XYZ isn't some little arc. It's a whole new series. And the main focus is Team Flare, Alain, and Zygarde.If it's only 9-13 episodes, how exactly are they going to promote future events? I highly doubt they'll start ANOTHER season.
>implying last episode of the anime will be named as "Satoshi's new adventure! The life of a true Pokemon Master!"
>New adventure means the new life he has with his wife and kids
They both were treated as "New Series" as they both got posters. They are not going to have a villain arc that long. BW had "Episode N", and then when that ended it went to "Best Wishes! DA!"
So TF arc, of what we know so far we need to see:
>Ash VS Alan
>Malva, Fat Flare member, Lysander introduction to the group
>Puni-chans joining, relevance and role in the arc
>The Ultimate Weapon
All of this is speculation, but it could easily be an entire cour, 2 cour arc.
I finished an anime recently where 13 episodes were spent on a single bicycle race.
With the exception of the original Pocket Monster series, which comprises Kanto, the Orange Archipelago, and Johto, every new series starts along with a new generation.
We are still in Gen VI, this is still XY. They're just changing the title because: marketing.
We're not getting any new main characters, Ash isn't moving to any new region, it's the same shit with a different poster and name to create hype.
People arguing otherwise are just dumb.
Yes I do. Pokémon rarely making it into the top ten.
Also, ratings getting better is a thing that doesn't destroy my point. They're just calling it XY&Z to create hype, to get even better ratings.
Help /padt/ How old is Serena here? Which Eva she should Pilot? Why she joined NERV and what's Favourite thing in the world?
I'm going to put a little Character info in the final picture
Why the fuck do you people keep replying to this guys autism. Let him rot in pomfs basement or wherever.
Apparently you, since you just replied to him
There were only 9 episodes where Team Galactic members appeared. Are you including Hunter J episodes? Even then Hunter J only had 4 episodes before being included in the Galactic finale.
Seriously, do you people actually watch the show? The villains teams barely appear every series. I thought this was common knowledge.
I just saw the TriPokalon episode. It was alright. Could have been better but it was still nice.
Omode flipped out and flipped Ash and Serena's roles with all those "Serena"s and "yatta".
>episode was so bad even shitposters showed up late
nicely done omode
I-I kind of liked it though. Shitposter's just running on broken record mode because of spaghetti last episode and all that Ash focus when something happens to Serena.
It bothers me that waifus didn't got enough screen time cause of this shy fucker
Yeah, it was nice. Some other anon mentioned that Pancham and Braixen were doing Eevee's dance for a bit, which was nice.
This is starting to feel like we're going to the Sylveon route.
>Wanting to see narutoad suffer again
Anyone find it rather underwhelming the second episode of XYZ is just a Quadllin filler? I thought they wanted to start the new series off with a bang, but after the first ep with the Zygarde cell meeting the group and Bonnie...they're going to a randomish filler.
Why not have a huge Team Flare stuff at the start?
>three Omodes in a row with worried husbando, spaghetti, and TriPokalon
>four Tomiokas in a row with worried waifu, gym and potential spaghetti and ramen as well as chuuni falling into the DARKNESS
The budget can only go so far.
So, what do you think so far /padt/? Pink suits her amazingly well
16 sounds fine and thanks
Satan decided to fuck with you because you keep killing those Skitties.
>I completely dismiss the possibility that Serena is lying, based on her embarrassed body language, stuttering, and blushing.
I know autistics have problems understanding communication, but damn.
>"Huh" and "What" is denying and not trying to change the subject without directly admitting she likes him
You're not even trying anymore at this point.
>Rica and Ikue have been at this shit for nearly 20 years
how do they do it guys
and how the fuck has Meowth's seiyuu not destroyed his throat yet
do the Japanese just have super resilient throats or something
According to 2ch, the Japanese fanbase had roughly the same reaction to XY91 as this thread has, with lots of tweets complaining about how it was a dull and anticlimactic ending to the arc.
The two boards are frighteningly similar sometimes
