>Aiming to enter the Kalos League, Ash and his friends continue their journey towards Snowbelle City, where the last Gym is located. While taking a break, the group encounters a mysterious, squishy Pokémon that's not listed in the Pokedex!? As Ash and the others get excited that it might be an entirely new Pokémon species, a mysterious group of people suddenly attack them.
XY&Z02: Hot-blooded Quilladin! Squishy is Being Targeted!! (Nov 5th)
>With the legendary Pokémon Squishy now part of their group, Ash and his friends continue their journey towards Snowbelle Gym.

1 hour till live watch.
What are you doing and what are your snacks for the UnsocialBowl?
Mov3 is sherming.
Either way neetball's vaugnlive stream works, it was just the Connectcast one that was ded
anyone know anymore info on the XYZ complete guide?
when is it going to be released and how could I get one?
>Hyping Ashninja this much.
>Making sure we see every single angle of it.
>Hasn't even shown in the anime yet except for a short 3 second psychic prediction.
Can we all agree that this form is going to be some inevitable game feature one way or another. I don't think even M-Charizard X received this much pre-fame.
>MegaZardX recieved the Origin specials, ME Specials, and major game promotion before MegaZard Y was revealed.
GreninjAsh so far only has anime hype, should it get to the games I'll except that it surpassed MegaZard in terms of promotion.
>idols playing in Okinawa
>teenyboppers in tiny skirts and lewd outfits performing in front of Marines
I thought this was a kids show.
It hurts, dammit.
Carrie is growing on me
Sheryl is still better
Oh, the assistants aren't watching the battle
Worried Waifu has turned into Trusting Waifu
All of it's frozen for me. Neetball demands it stream in high-def when I don't have the bandwidth for it so it just sits on a single frame and does nothing, BETV can't fetch the stream list, and mov3 seems to be frozen on a single frame (when I do in fact have the bandwidth for it). The fuck am I supposed to do about this?
Gonna need that double slasher smile in high def lads
Also, it's really nice they were able to get Tsunade to voice Olympia. It's a perfect fit.
What's the deal with those bags under their eyes, anyway?
I guess it's just shadowing, but it looks odd.
Oh shit it's that Pokedex Z from the toy ad!
>no NEXT TIME... A NEW BEGINNING!
Calling Aromatisse for Oak.
>all this green
Also, dat extended trailer song, holy fuck.
>Talonflame was given equal screentime and even shown to did most of the work in order to compensate for not having "frog love"
>all those combo moves
>Talonflame being RUTHLESS
oh god my dick is still hard from this gym battle
I always believed.
Also, how the fuck do random people appear in your damn ideal world.
Our little girl has come a long way...
>Ramos better than Olympia
I don't care if you guys got blindsided by it and it had good strategy, take off those BTFO goggles and go compare the animation to Clemont's, Korrina's and Olympia's gyms. It's subpar and reused a crapton of footage multiple times during the battle.
>this is the third time in a row I have missed the episode on livestream
>this time by just only around half an hour
Ok, how many painful hours must I wait until raws?
>mfw Ash revealed his masterstroke
nope, it was a to be continued... at the same time the website had a last update saying xy was over though.
Is that Manon's bag, with Manon herself nowhere to be seen?
I-is she really kill?
Why is Cosette so cute. Why didn't they watch the battle? Goddammit, professor, this is why you never score with them because you don't give them a break and make them clean up shit.
>not believing in Satoshi
>NOT BELIEVING IN SATOSHI
What the fuck kind of plebian dogshit is that science faggot NERD spewing? I mean come on, not believing in Satoshi? How do you NOT believe in Satoshi? He's proven too many times to count that faith in him should be something you should have all the time, is he smoking some of Ramos's weed?
>the exact moment she knew that she was just a little bitch
>still believing that BW was canon
He cooks for Kalos, he secretly steals spaghetti from Serenas pockets when people aren't noticing and ships it over to big Kalos cities like Lumiose where he makes millions off of it.
Spaghetti made from nervousness and sweat is very tasty.
everyone spills their spaghetti for ash
I can't wait where alain tries to keep his spaghetti from spilling that he builds a dam for it, but the spaghetti was so much that it spilled
By the way, Frogadier pretty much did an Izuna Drop on the male Meowstic. I guess too many anons were unable to properly watch the gym battle. Once the raws come out, I'm expecting tons of excited comments.
What I'm referring to is the airborne hold Frogadier did after jumping off of Talonflame to get the Meowstic hit by their own Future Sight.
>I just realized Ash's male Pokémon fought the male Meowstic and his female Pokémon the female one
>hear your leader that some shit is gonna go down
>try to become a hero despite your order not allowing you to interfere
>attack people who did nothing wrong
>get ass handed to you by one of them, a kid
>can't even mount a counterattack because your leader arrives and one of your friends tell you a shit, making you apologize
>watch as you find that the kid will have something special happen to him making you insignificant
>feel the hint of praise your leader gives to him
>wish he'd lose throughout the entire match despite doing nothing wrong to you
She still feels the humiliation Ash gave to her without meaning to.
>yfw Ash matches her in this department as well.
>this foreshadows mega perfect zygarde
>forgetting Lysandre has the megalith
>not realizing it's been foreshadowed since MEIII
I'm calling it.
XY Ash is surpassing DP Ash. Bravest Ballerina and Narutoad are probably pushing for Ash's top 15 right now as of this episode and we'll see where they are by seasons end.
>"The long-awaited anime series "Pocket Monsters XY&Z" finally starts airing! The ending theme for this notable anime series will be sung by Little Glee Monster. This girl group is on a roll!"
It's guaranteed by the end of XY Greninja will be one of Ashs top 5 mons, and Talonflame is easily the strongest of the birds so far. The only one who could stand up to it being Swallow if what I know about it is true. Talonflame could wind up being in 7-10 spot depending on what goes down at the League.
Ash is the strongest he's ever been, and he hasn't even completed the Gyms nor his XY roster yet. Noibat and his last mon are the wildcards, for all we know Noivern could be stronger then Talonflame, and we don't even know what the last mon is.
It's a great time to be a Pokemon anime fan, XY has been superb so far.
>not an Aegislash that's guarding a castle
>not Ash battling it and defeating it
>not Aegislash seeing Ash's qualities and decides to swear allegiance to it by becoming his Pokemon like how kings would have knights
>not having the Aegislash be LOYALTY while CLEAVING AND SMITING EVIL
Klefki being stupid and useless.
>Not having Ash pull it from a stone
>Not wanting him to go from wielding a single blade to handed, to dual wielding, then a sword and shield
If Ash gets a member of the sword line, I want it to be Honedge and to watch it evolve into a classy as fuck sword.
Psyshock was depicted as an almost impossible to outrun auto-homing attack, so it wasn't too different I guess. They also used Future Sight many times, it's not like Frogadier and Talonflame managed to avoid most attacks. They took an ungodly amount of punishment.
>not liking the mega evolution arc
But it was comedy gold.
Episode was FUCKING WATCH IT RIGHT NOW/10.
Worried waifu as always as well as confident waifu a la pre-Laverre Gym battle.
Bravest Ballerina pierces the heavens and Narutoad Izuna Drops Unsociable.
I still prefer Ramos for the Showderp strats
why yes, Ash is a very lovable guy.
no anon, Showderp is Valerie.
Poor thing doesn't realize she's at the top of the Ashbowl.
Swellow has one of Ash's best K:D ratios of all of his pokemon. It's endurance and battling record make it hard to compare to. Talonflame is without a doubt number 2 bird though.
I don't think Noivern will be better than Talonflame. I think Noivern has a steep hill to climb in terms of battling prowess.
Pikachu was counting, you trying to tell me that you can't take out your phone and run a timer while battling?
>Pikachu was counting, you trying to tell me that you can't take out your phone and run a timer while battling?
Well at VGC you aren't allowed to get your phone out during a battle
Ash improvised a Super Flying Cut in the gym.
Been surpassed. Staraptor didn't truly shine until it fully evolved and learned Close Combat and even then it's most notable for winning Ash the Pokeringer against Paul (and actually reversing the trend where Ash loses everything to Paul), and then getting trapped by Gastrodon against Paul in the league. Still a powerhouse, just has been surpassed by Bravest Ballerina.
