XY&Z05: Pikachu Dreams of Squishy! (Nov 26th)
sorry pikas got it first >>24593819
its cool tho, you can post amour pics and i can add pikas to them it will be fun
>Pikachu and Nenene were the hired guns all along
Perfect! How about this one for starters?
why call it shitposting? I love amour, and so does everyone else
so its wrong to post amour on a discussion thread that allows pics of amour to be posted?
nice. Maybe the pic of bonnie being touched pervertedly by squishy?
>Touching his shoulders in XY70 is progress
>"Admitting" to wanting Ash in XY80, even though she's still just as beta by the end of the episode is progress
>Still unwilling to admit she likes Ash in XY90 is progress
i did that one yesterday f a m
>It's not even Amour. It's just that ass that picdumps with the blatant file names.
I love amour anon, its funny that you'd think i dont.
Why can't Shauna get a Mega Venusaur? Clears out the riff-raff so Ash can get
Mega Charizard Z Fire/Ghost because the tail flame went out. Wonder Guard. Straight 120 in all stats save HP because fuck you and your 100 point limit. The fun part is Game Freak'd do it, too.
>Inspire one another

What can honestly be a non forced scenario where these two actually have to face off as opposed to Alain or any Grunt/Admin just kidnapping Squishy
>there is no safe haven to talk about the Pokemon anime in the entire world
I'll never understand the shitposter mentality.
This is too much of pottery
Thats the spirit! Its just cute for these two to be paired up.
Thanks for this pic, its super cute. Its like a trading card game but with different amour pics.
a very sweet pic
cute wife like discipline
But i can't choose a favorite, there's a lot of cute moments
So yeah, Oha Suta. Get in here if you have any kind of hope it's still possible to discuss around shitposts at this point.
What reasons would they make Alan and Ash battle and become rivals? This shit is going to be intense when it happens!
Isn't it very simple?
Alan needs Squishy to cure Hari-san out of his coma and bring Manon's smile back, and Ash will protect Squishy from Team Flare at all costs. Just because they might eventually come to a mutual understanding doesn't mean they will stop becoming rivals since they both seek power as trainers.
Someone taking Gambler club art and changing it to make it look like some lovey-dovey Ash/Serena pic.
Also, thee of the Pokemon Club members are in the studio today.
So the big Pokemon news this time is just that the Pokemon Club will be on the next episode of Pokenchi.
And this dude is going to try joining the Pokemon Club by doing a presentation on Team Rocket's Meowth, his favorite Pokemon.
This scene was fucking hilarious, I had completely forgotten it.
Actually pretty good for such a quick drawing.
Those two are like Francium.
And by that I mean they'd be very unstable: the longest-lasting isotope of Francium lasts for less than 22 minutes, which means it has the least stable naturally occurring nucleus on the periodic table.
>noone is talking about Team Rocket
you guys have shitty tastes in characters
Wish Jessie would get a female Pyroar
also James needs a new pokemon too
jessie will never follow her dream and become an amazing pokemon performer/conteststar/model/pornstar/whatever flavour of the month she wants
The literal ship comparisons shouldn't surprise you given pic related.
My Squishy is about to Iku ZE if you know what I mean
The high level of detail in this episode really drives it home to me how they draw hundreds of beautiful backgrounds to be used just a few seconds each. Kinda crazy when you think about it.
what do these say?
Team Rocket needs their own show, they are just a burden on the main show. Jessie hasn't been the same since generation 1, she is too crazy these days.
Kek at Xerosic laying the verbal smackdown on Celosia and Mable.
>yfw we unfortunately won't be shown Olympia assraping Shota even more fiercely than Valerie
>tfw it will probably become Complete Zygarde because it wants to protect Eureka
>tfw it must leave even though it wants to stay with Eureka
God fucking dammit. I will fucking cry rivers when they split up. ;_;
>yfw it stays with Eureka and becomes her first pokemon
They're easy to remember once you notice the first letter stays the same between languages and it's different for each name:
>Correa = Celosia
>Momiji = Mable
>Bara = Bryony
>Akebi = Aliana
She must learn her lesson, no matter how many times her face must be shoved into the dirt.
Only then will she realize
she can't bring Mother back.
She is doomed to suffer after all.
>what if Ash-Greninja requires a Keystone?
I can't remember their names in my own language and I won't be able to until I replay X or Z comes out, so I understand you.
Also trying to remember the names of characters, moves and places in three different languages sucks.
I think it'll be better if they become friends first or at least as close to friends as Alan's autism would allow. Ash is friendly enough to strike a conversation with anyone that interests him. It'll be like the setup for the COTD episodes except the guy turns out to be the enemy in the end.
Seeing Charizard and its owner having a mega stone can spark his interest to talk to the guy. Alan is hard to approach but as Manon showed, if you can get past the harsh exterior, he'll eventually open up a little. Alan also used to be happy and enthusiastic like Ash so I think he'll be reminded of his old days.
Then the reveal happens that Alan needs to capture Puni from Boni and shit hits the fan.
Who else had their homoscience boners activated when Clemont said this?
do you think any other pokemon will get an ash forme after the league?
King of Gets edit with Puni-chans card when?
Is it time to make little girls cry again by destroying their dreams?
I think that since they both know Sycamore, that can be the thing that starts their friendship. Alan has a soft spot for Sycamore and he was the one that found the Gible in the first place. Knowing that Ash helped Sycamore and Garchomp and was also willing to die for his pokemon, Alan will actually get along with him at the start. Until the mission from Lysandre comes of course.
So, openings are never 100% accurate but would Ash losing to two mega's really cause him to fall into a depressive state? He's lost harder before, and if that's the case I don't see why he wouldn't think to bring back his Pokemon than CAN mega evolve to compete with them.
Because he's in love... with pic related.
So, according to the subs, Shota recommends that Ash and gang go to Terminus Cave to catch Pokemon you can't find anywhere else.
Will Ash actually catch his six Pokemon there, or will it merely serve as the next front in the Z crisis?
From the look of it, Team Flare will be spread out across a much longer period of time than just one cour like Episode N was. Team Flare may be spread across half the XY&Z series, with a bunch of gym/training/Greninjash/Tripokalon/mega evolution shenanigans and fillers mixed in.
>seeing a group of happy people when you're in despair
I know that but what I'm saying is, if his depressive state is accurate because of him losing to Megas…why wouldn't he think "Oh, I have a Charizard and a Sceptile than can probably Mega Evolve!"
The opening makes me think otherwise. The gang is shown to be heading towards Lumiose City with Puni-chan. Unless shit goes down when they reach Terminus Cave (presumably in episode 8) and they're forced to backtrack to Anistar and Dendemille and then go back to Lumiose through Route 16, I think they'll get through Terminus Cave, get to Couriway (where a Tripokalon we already know about probably takes place), Snowbelle/Pokémon Village where Ash fights Wulfric, and finally back to Lumiose through Routes 21 and 22. Ash was seen both in the previous OP and in this one in a room that looks like the interior of Lysandre Labs under Lumiose City and Perfect Zygarde's cloud-piercing beam also originates from Lumiose, so it'd make sense for the climax to take place there.
So, what you're saying is... you're about to waste 30 seconds of our time on a rant in full autism mode about Pikachu when you could easily make your own containment thread on Poke4chan for it?
he has two of the three Kalos pokemon that broke Smogon, give him the third
It started in Lumiose after the seventh badge and immediately continued in Geosenge (specifically next to the menhir circle where in the anime Pikachu first fought against the crazed Mega Lucario), but I doubt they're going back there. The games didn't have Zygarde in a plot-relevant role either, so this seems to be based on Z or be anime-original.
>Alan blows off Ash and acts like a cold dick in general
>Some Team Rocket bullshit happens and everyone gets separated
>Alan and Bonnie end up together
>She's scared and he comforts her, telling her things will e all right and he'll help her get ack to her friends
>"Why are you so kind to me? You didn't act like this earlier"
>"You remind me of someone, and I want at least YOU to keep smiling."
You know what, I think Ash will actually win the league and earn the right to challenge the E4 and the Champion. He'll lose against Diantha, though.
Alternatively, he'll lose against Shota in the final round, but he'll still fight Diantha unofficially.
>Maybe Dodrio if he continues to try and catch one
Comparing Shota's and Ashs teams at the moment should the above be part of Shotas team at the League.
Does he stand a chance against Ash?
>Noivern VS Salamence
>Hawlucha VS Slurpuff
>GreninjAsh VS M-Sceptile
>Pikachu VS Dodrio
Ash has a good counter for each of Shota's mons, and depending on what the last two Shota get and the last Ash gets I could see him defeating Shota fairly easily save for M-Sceptile.
While I don't think it'll be that sappy, I think Alan being alone with Bonnie for an episode would be nice. Would show that getting Puni is just business for Alan and he really doesn't want to ruin Bonnie's happiness.
I want her to get the fluffiest evolution.
i used to think people looking pissed off on 4chan were just people playing along and trolling together and weren't actually mad.
i was wrong. some people get 100% legitimately enraged.
All you need is to be lucky enough to find a mega stone and love your pokemon enough in the first place. Even Korrina can mega evolve but couldn't control it at first. The deciding factor is in how powerful your bond is to determine the strength of the mega and if they actually obey you.
Who the hell is that?
>googles "Pokemon Sawyer"
...in all honest, calling a boy "Shota" in an English dub is literally the dumbest thing you can do considering its implications, and considering "Sawyer" is a famous book and Shota writes in his jourNAH SCREW IT THE DUB SUCKS D:
Alan had to ask Lysandre to gather 10 trainers that had megas and considered this so valuable he was willing to risk his Mega Ring just to get to battle them.
That should tell you there's very few people that have them.
>Bergmite or Phantump
>giving Ash slow tankmons over a JUSTICE sword
Last I checked, ;_; and D: are emoticons that have been used on 4chan since its inception, and grouping them with other cancerous stuff like :^), O____O, etc., is a great way to tell the newfags from the old.
I'm not getting mad at you. I'm just saying if their logic is "hurr Ash can't have Mega because it make him too powerful", the same logic should apply to Greninja given it's a special Mega. It's obviously not going to be enough for him to become the Kalos Champion…so I don't get it.
So, when is Bulbagarden going to leak the conversation Eden Hazard and Masuda had about adding "Hazard Breloom" to Pokemon Z. That new Breloom transformation will make Ash Greninja look like the faggot he is.
Well, just going by what we've seen so far, there have been 26 trainers capable of Mega Evolution (I'm assuming Drasna also has one for convenience's sake) and it's looking like that Nurse Joy in XY&Z03 will be another. Contrast to Ash Greninja who has only happened once before.
>mfw Hiro disables dubs on all boards bar /b/ and [s4s]
Calling everything a false flag is like calling everything ironic. If you're going to be a fag and criticize everything, at least use the proper terminology
Wait, I just baited wasn't I, I know you're not THAT stupid...
Hiro fully supports GET Freedom.
This picture proves that.
>mfw the opening everytime
it's just give me the vibes of actually happening, you know? He looks like he got a fucking chance right now to do it, even more than DP.
Pokemon anime wild ride should end, it's fucking time
I've felt this since AG to be honest. Everytime the last opening before the league comes out they make Ash look strong with all evovled Pokemon but they outcome is always the same.
Honestly Ash should have made it to Top 4 in Hoenn, then second in DP (Ash Vs. Tobias should have been the finals), and now in XY he would win.
The lyrics are hype overdrive.
>Our overlapping feelings synchronize
>And form a bond that will never disappear
>So there's no limit to how strong we can be
>We have dreams we can't give up on
>We'll get them, no matter what
>Let's reach our hands out
>Towards a greatness no-one knows about
>Let's stand tall and go together
>Beyond our dreams
Were this any other anime, this would be nothing less than the last OP.
Man i just betted about it against my autistic bro
>me: He's gonna win m8
>him: kek. Yeah right, maybe after Tobias will NTR his shit up.
If i win he's going to pay over me in some high-tier restaurant
if i lose i'm going to pay over him
pls win Ash
please please please don't let 5555 be in this thread
if it does, it'll either never get on track or a mod will come and delete 100+ posts and then the thread will be a ghost of its former self
I'm so tired of watching Ash winning over and over again.
When is he going to lose?
>and then the thread will be a ghost
this is a good thing
Fucking hate that dude.
I don't see why everyone is so dead against Ash getting a Mega anyway. I question that sanity of people that think ZardY is going to Trevor.
Too perfect to pass up.
He's gonna most likely lose pretty badly that will shatter his spirit before Greninjash becomes a think.
Current contenders of absolutely btfo Ash are:
Shota w/ M-Sceptile
Thanks this is the first time i've done much in microsoft paint apart from very badly colouring in this
I love how in these old AG posters May is heavily focused on after Ash while Max and Brock are thrown in the background to the point where you barely see them.
*Insert dumb namedropping fag post here*
>Professor Birch is more important than Brock
Actually I've been meaning to ask this for a while. It's been forever since I watched the old series and I skipped BW, so how often did the previous professors appear? I don't remember any of them being nearly as prominent as Sycamore, I feel like he's already appeared as much as everyone else combined.
Go and watch every episode
Appeared in episode 1, an FRLG promo episode set in Littleroot where Oak visited him to pimp the Kanto starters and two random "the group runs into him doing field research and he plays the role of that episode's NPC" episodes. He was pretty irrelevant all thins considered.
- the curves
- the legs
- her hair style is a pre-conditioned subconscious rending of jinx from teen titans, and we all remember ZONE-sama's Flash parodies of jinx
- the tie is a hugely sexual symbol and reminds us of all the school girls in anime
- the hair piece reminds us of maids
i think the better question is: what's NOT sexual about her??
Doesn't it look like they've left a lot of space where Inkay is so that it could be swapped with Malamar in a revision of the OP?
