POKÉMON NO UCHI ATSUMARU? EPISODE 7 (Nov 15th)
XY&Z04: Litleo and Pyroar! A Fiery Departure!! (Nov 19th)
>As Ash and his friends continue their journey, they witness a Litleo about to leave its pride in order to live on its own. However, in addition to Ash and his friends, a mysterious shadow has its eyes fixed on the Litleo as well.
XY&Z05: Pikachu Dreams of Squishy! (Nov 26th)
>Pikachu wakes up one night the group is camping out to find that Ash and his friends' Pokémon are all talking human language for some reason. Pikachu is completely confused, having no idea what's going on at all, but just then, it hears someone tell it "Help me!"...
XY&Z06: Welcome to the Ninja Village! The Legend of the Hero Greninja!! (Dec 3rd)
>After reuniting with the ninja boy Sanpei and his Greninja, Ash and his friends get invited to a festival being held in the ninja village. The group has fun at the festival, interacting with the villagers, but suddenly trouble occurs when the village elder is abducted by a mysterious ninja army.
Reminder that the male Meowstic tragically died after the female sneezed and accidentally blew his brains out with uncontrolled psychic power.
This is how long most seasons lasted. There is one more gym, Team Flare and a possible Pokemon Z battle frontier part. So that's all that's left. But I wonder why the new game hasn't been announced yet.
Reminder that people here can't take the truth that Amour has stagnated (pic related), and because Ash is permanent and Serena/Clemont aren't…Serena/Clemont will likely end up together. Not to mention all the set up they have.
>Reminder that a fucking random Nurse Joy is Mega Evolving before Ash
Haven't we seen a Nurse Joy with a Latias?
Aren't all Nurse Joys technically considered Pokemon Masters?
Why is this an issue?
Characters don't grow up in Pokemon, so, their principal traits will never change.
That means Clemont will never win da Serena, Misty will never grow out of her tsundereness just to admit her own feelings for Ash, Brock will be forever a hopeless lech, Dawn and Ash won't understand his own feelings because of their denseness, Serena will be crushing over that Ketchum bastard forever, etc, etc...
>mfw we will never gonna see an older bonnie as the kalos champion.
Never, because of this... >>24611277
Pokemon is stuck in a floating timeline, just like Sazae-Shit, Doraeshit, Anpanshit, Ninja Boy Rantaro, Shin Chan , Shimajirou and Ojarumaru.
So, characters will never grow up and grow out of their principal traits.
So, assuming that they would end giving the middle finger to the fans at the end of the XY saga, has another anime/manga series come out with something like that before?
Pretty sure there was some anime where the author got death threats because the main pairing didn't end together
I like how nobody has brought up that they could just have Serena come with Ash to the next region. Why even bother trickling small sub-hints of romance if it's not gonna go anywhere?
>they could just have Serena come with Ash to the next region.
Then how is she going to become Kalos Queen?
>Why even bother trickling small sub-hints of romance if it's not gonna go anywhere?
you're also an annoying piece of shit, u know that right? imbecile
At the end of the day, the main purpose of the anime it is mostly to promote the games of the current generation.
Unless they come out with some shit like Ash & Serena starting a new journey together wearing the outfits of the Gen VII game protagonists
Even if she did become Kalos Queen, it wouldn't really matter. The fact that it took so long for Serena to find something to focus on means she probably hasn't thought about what it entails in the long run.
Maybe so, but at the minute it's the anime that's promoting the games until the new one comes out.
>Why even bother trickling small sub-hints of romance if it's not gonna go anywhere?
Because they can? It should be obvious by now that the "romance subplot" between Ash and Serena isn't going anywhere. Just look at X007, and then XY090. Serena is still just as beta.
Being Manon is suffering.
This is how things will end between Ash and Serena. Cap this
>Ash is leaving to get on a boat
>Saying goodbye to his friends
>Suddenly Serena runs up to Ash
>Grabs him, and before he can do anything she kisses him
>They have a short moment together
>Ash then gets on the boat, more determined than ever to be the champion of the new region
>Episode 1 of the new season finally begins
>"Who the fuck is Serena"
You're all welcome. I saved you the trouble of watching for their relationship.
Why must she suffer so much?
As long the final XY episode features a scene like pic related but with the current Ash & Serena, I have no complaints.
Can't recall, sometimes I just save fan art.
High enough it's okay to hope
Same purpose as pic related
I'm still mad Millefeui didn't got at least 2nd place on that tripokalon
She's smug but not as smug as this. Has she even tip her hat yet?
That's what everyone says to not explain the reason. And why they don't explain it?
Because they don't know and just spread the meme everywhere without even know why are they laughing.
She doesn't need to tip a hat to show her smugness
She's not trying hard enough then. Also can someone remind why Ash doesn't have an antagonistic/smug/annoying girl rival? Why do the girls always get the best?
>yfw I still want Casey back.
Sad what happened to her original VA. Should've gotten
Yuka Iguchi as replacement.
>Ash doesn't get a smug girl rival that he will eventually break and humble after beating her many times
>instead gets an annoying smug girl as a companion
>he doesn't even teach her to be humble
Fukou da. Here's hoping the league mixes it up.
But the English dub really is awful shit, man, this is coming from someone who liked the way it was in its first few years.
With episode titles and script writing/dialogue like "The Frocking Find in the Flowers," you can understand why we hate the dub.
Don't get me started on the awful voice acting, either...
It's higher pitched/louder that's for sure.
I don't mind that myself: it's the awful voice acting and the dialogue, along with the music replacement score sucking so badly, that are why I despise the English dub nowadays.
It USED to be a fun, enjoyable show in its first 8 or so years, though, it really did: I'm sad to see what happened to it.
It is sad when YW dub has more quality than pokemon dub
that edited stare is fucking creepy. though not as creepy as an obsession over a fictional haircut, dropping a show because of it, and continuing to spam threads about a show you supposedly dont watch.
>yfw Ash will never own Meloetta or Hoopa, the only conceivable little legendaries that Ash could catch without being overpowered
Diancie a shit
Does anyone else get extremely turned on by the Bonnie?
... You do know where you are, right?
/padt/ gets triggered over everything
but instead of just saying "i am triggered as fuck" they say "r-report and ignore!!!"
TPCi's dub is the absolute worst modern day dub.
Eh, even that has better acting than the current dub, honestly.
I thought the 4Kids dub was a lot better than the TPCi dub at least: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gNyzl1KxrwA
The dub doesn't have any chance of being redeemed unless TPCi drops DuArt permanently and Cathcart, Knotz, and Natochenny don't get a one way ticket out of the Series at this point, but CN losing it would be an added plus due to their shit advertisement and shitty intro length restrictions.
obviously it's really sad when you lay both pairings out:
>Past that's never really touched on as something important
>Ribbon that's never important outside of the episodes it debut in
>Ash is a permanent character and Serena is not
>No real common interest
>Common interest in cooking
>Their Pokemon are connected
>Common strong connection to Bonnie
>Both are creative and create things
>Both are temporary
That all signs point to Serena/Clemont as the higher chance.
>goodra evo didn't play legendary theme
>played mega volt instead
>legendary theme during gym 5 instead
never understood this
Is Goodra a strong enough pokemon that could help Ash win the league if he were to return?
If Ash has this team for the league, would he win against Tobias should he return (I know he won't)?
I want to spoil and get as many pokemon as she wants to play with her.
I just wanna see an episode with Bonnie visiting Oak's lab
Agreed. That's one of my three main problems with the TPCi dub: the others are (a) the awful voice acting and (b) the script writing being pure shit.
Plenty: at least some of the voices there fit more than the Pokemon XY dub voices.
You think that's bad? This is autism right here. And you have to be pretty fucking autistic to think the 4Kids dub isn't better than the TPCi dub.
Japanese version > 4Kids dub > A steaming pile of shit > TPCi dub is the truth.
I wouldn't go that far at all, but the 4Kids dub is way better than the TPCi dub.
She managed to command a giant Trex, a horde of bovines would be a walk in the park
I just want another groupshot including his Kalos mons.
Who would Greninja be bros with?
>all the Pokemon that he released magically return
Whatever i still prefer to keep up qihth the thread.
Speaking of released mons. What if during the league a trainer shows up with pokemon that ash has previously owned?
I know they did something like that with a girl during AG
>Whatever i still prefer to keep up qihth the thread.
If you're legitimately not trolling on purpose, then stop replying to bait. It's not "keeping up with" anything, it's outright shitposting and trolling, whether on purpose or not. You won't get replies and you will get treated as a troll.
>Go back to smoking with Natochenny pls and riding Cathcart's alliteration filled dick.
Reddit is as retarded as ever.
I checked, this guy has been sitting here shitposting the same bait as always for seven and a half hours, constantly responding to himself pretending to reply. On and on. For at least the hundredth day in a row.
This is not trolling, this is severe mental illness.
As much i would like to see serena traveling with ash on the next region, i also fear that she might end becoming johto misty 2.0
Like i said, I got cheated once, I'm not gonna fall with the same joke again
>All this amour vs geekchic discussion
You guys know which pair is the best
Lurk more, newfag.
It's always great when one simple reply can tell whether someone is new to /padt/ or not pretty accurately.
Now go fucking lurk more, faggots.
/padt/, why is she sad?
Why did no one protect her smile?
Because the last person to try got scarred for life
