Can we discuss whether Dawn wears underwear or not again?
Can't really sit like this without underwear.
Will we ever know?
sure you can
This seems like decent proof since they even shaded it. I mean someone had to color it in like this on purpose.
The question for me is whether she is fully nopan or not. Even though I believe she doesn't have them on here, we don't know if it's just in the episodes you see and such, or if she just doesn't wear panties.
Green ones don't go rotten as fast as purple ones
Now can all you pedophiles go fuck off?
Dub isn't canon
Are 2 Dawns better than 1?
>skirt missing frills
It's not panties. Japan agreed (pixiv dictionary).
You can see up that high elsewhere and there's just skin in the same place. Even if she wears panties that's not them. She needs something smaller although I don't believe she wears anything desu senpai.
Her figure is obviously nopan. I have no idea why people would still think she wears anything.
She doesn't need them
When she crouches or sits you can sometimes see a glimpse of skin color up her skirt. It's literally in the show. And some of the girls in the manga aren't wearing anything. Sapphire just has the spats and Berlitz showed a bit of buttcheek. Being Dawn's counterpart I suspect they both don't have anything on underneath.
It's not because they aren't wearing panties. It's something that isn't unique to Dawn, it's present with many short skirt wearing characters in anime and manga.
It's just a trick to make it easier to animate. This isn't the type of show to have panty shots. You have to be legitimately retarded tot think Dawn isn't wearing anything.
Meowth says Team Rocket's been after Ash since Dawn was in diapers.
Time doesn't pass in Pokemon.
The No-pan Queen didn't wear diapers either
I want Dawn to be my concubine
May's got the true waifu spot reserved
Her hair is generally in the down and no-clip position, when she isn't traveling
In contests she has her hair mainly in a ponytail of some variant
I liked her hair in the manga and in ORAS, Dawn had really nice hair in the anime
In the anime there is nothing, in the manga and ORAS she has short hair
Her hair is bundled in her side bangs, when it's wet she does have long hair.
Everyone does, now get back in line.
>It's just a trick to make it easier to animate.
So you admit it at least appeared like she wasn't wearing anything?
There are girls in anime and manga who never wear underwear. Enough to coin the term nopan. You admit Dawn looks like one but you think it's a trick. There's no "trick", she just doesn't wear anything.
To be fair that episode had a shit animator who had no idea how to draw May's hair. Her hair is supposed to cascade down her face like side bangs, not stick out to the sides.
The only Ed I know.
I liked the hair she had in the manga
Probably not. We got Serena but they don't tease the skirt as much. I think part of the reason for Dawn's legs being shown off was because, in the subject of this thread, its a no panties tease. We probably won't get it again. At least not anytime soon.
You can't, those figures seem to go for 300$ minimum. There is a cheaper figure, but it looks shit in comparison.
Oh well, there's a video on Youtube that shows up the expensive toy's skirt, so now I don't need it anymore since it has that filled-in skirt bullshit instead of the pantied crotch of many other Japanese figures.
You can't see the back upskirt in that video though. Her buttcheeks peek out a bit.
In all seriousness it's probably the animators avoiding pantyshots at all costs since under modern Japanese ratings laws panty shots automatically bump up the rating a peg. This is an attempt to keep pantyshots out of their children's media (especially shows like Pokemon with international audiences) in a futile attempt to prevent foreigners from thinking they're weird. It's far too late for that Japan, who are they trying to fool?
>In all seriousness it's probably the animators avoiding pantyshots at all costs since under modern Japanese ratings laws panty shots automatically bump up the rating a peg.
Nonsense. Doraemon has panty shots all the time and is primarily aimed at even younger kids than Pokemon is.
difference is Dawn is a bit more realistically drawn than the girl from doraemon
They acknowledge that her skirt is too short. It is a running gag
They don't have to cooperate with prudish Americans though
There are some episodes where 4kids digitally lengthened Jessie's skirt in some suggestive scenes where she had her legs raised or stretched out. Dogasu has the edits on his site.
Her Coordinator outfits and swimsuits were all lacking but all of that was made up because of her Meido and "winter attire"
I think they went as far as they can go with ecchi scenes with the girls as they were allowed. You guys have to realize the writers/animators can't just do whatever they want with the anime, they have OLM, Nintendo, etc. to answer to. If something was inappropiate in the show it would be removed.
They put suggestive shots in all the time though, like this scene of the camera looking down May's chest as Manaphy rests its head against her boobs.
Why would there actually be a reason for it to be wrong to not wear underwear
There's a photo edit app
Plus for Serena this image right here would have been nice to have seen something.
The funny thing is Serena actually holding her skirt down draws more attention to what should be happening rather than if Serena just stood there with her arms by her side. Its actually more blatant fanservice than if she was doing nothing.
>May putting manaphy up to her chest is suggestive
No, that's supposed to be like how mothers cradle their children close to them. Babies get near boobs all the time. Manaphy was practically May's child during that movie. It's not suggestive. Though there are other suggestive times that they did add most likely on purpose.
Manaphy clinging to May's breasts (I don't have the screencap, but it happens a few times in the movie), was suggestive no matter how you put it. May was its mother, but she is also only 10 years old.
I wonder why they really call it "DP"
I wish she had her own anime
Maybe she wears a T-back thong?
I like this topic, the most I've been active in in quite a while.
It is fun to speculate, considering Pokemon would do this to one of their main characters
because dawn is the fetish queen. she's also an empty shell of a person inside, having given up her own personality in the effort to please her mother and to at least look competent next to Ash
A lot of Japanese artists think Dawn wears black panties because of that upskirt scene with the Mantine. Also I love Serena's reaction in this shot.
I like jealous girls
A lot more fun
Dawn is the only female companion I could have realistically seen doing Gyms, besides maybe May as well. The first DP episode starts off with Dawn feeling like the star too.
Had the Contests never been introduced, I could have easily seen May and Dawn going for Gym badges and being trainers like in the games. Probably not Serena though, she feels too much like a waifu character to be a lead.
From the same artist. Guess Dawn doesn't wear panties after all.
It was one of the best episodes
The Dawn maid scene is only literally a few seconds long. Its a shame she didn't continue to wear it throughout the whole episode.
Oddly enough despite Dawn wearing a maid outfit, cheerleading outfit, dresses, etc....they never had her in a Nurse outfit like Misty, May and Serena. The Nurse fetish was the only thing Dawn didn't wear.
That does suck, It is like they broke tradition. We need Dawn in nurse outfit
Of course they do. I'm pretty sure the writers/animators occasionally look online at fanart or what Japanese users are saying about the anime. Its not like they're completely oblivious of the older fandom, especially since the anime is 18 years old now and all the original fans are grown up.
I don't understand this.
Do the Japanese think someone's going to pay this ridiculous price? I've seen a $500 figure auction end and get put up for the same price or higher, more than once, and they never sell for that price.
Another from the same artist. His girls are fappable.
I will agree that the first DP eppy did that feel to it. How would Dawn do would she do, the same like in the anime or would she do better?
As, for whom would be her companion's I could easily see her traveling with Barry around Sinnoh yet as for anyone else I'm unsure.
If Dawn had her own show completely unrelated to Ash, she'd probably travel with Barry and some other Sinnoh character. Maybe one of the DP Gym leaders or the tag battle companions.
No, that would be more like this.
If we had gym leaders into the mix I can it. Either being Maylene or Candice who she might travel with.
>suggestive shots in all the time though, like this scene of the camera looking down May's chest as Manaphy rests its head against her boobs
Dude, you seriously need to get laid.
Remember: Fap to pokegirls, never poke a girl.
>I don't even know what panties are!
I really wish Piplup stayed in its ball during DP. I feel it really brought down Dawn's character in the later half of DP when the writers constantly focused on Piplup fillers instead of Dawn herself, and had it hog most of the battles on her team.
I wish Piplup got less screentime similar to May and Serena's starters and didn't always hog the spotlight.
I don't think I have ever seen him in the pokeball besides May's Torchick isn't as smart as Piplup and Fennekin is the cute arm candy for Serena. Piplup is way more useful than Togepi too
How was Lyra in Japanese? As far as I recall, I read she did a pun with her own name instead.
She was fun, wouldn't mind if she got one of those specials for herself.
That image is what originally convinced me she wasn't wearing anything. Look at how Plusle and Minun are positioned. Think of how easily they could've not made that an upskirt yet chose to and also chose to color that spot a darker shade.
One thing I always wanted to see was a doujin of Dawn and Zorua together as it was mimicking her
Its interesting Dawn got so much screentime in the anime, something they never tried to do again with the females who came after her either. The writers really did go out of their way to make her a co-star to Ash rather than a second fiddle.
I guess its not something that will ever happen again at this rate either.
because dawn is a derp. her entirely personality is 'catching up with Ash' and 'following her mother's footsteps'
by age 16 she'll cling to any man that makes her feel even remotely special
her deeply rooted competitiveness would never let her be comfortable around other women
Dawn is the most independent of the main girls, she doesn't need validation from a man as much as the other girls.
Zoey is lesbian Dawn isn't.
Dawn is straight, girls are the ones who are lesing out for her
This video is shitty quality, but they're pink.
japanese people don't show pantsu in children animes, that it, they would even show a butt before pantsu, japanese people are really strange with that, sorry for my fuck english IM fucking japanese, but not japanese dick, big dick. kek

Dawn with huge breasts just seems wrong. I wish Japanese artists wouldn't give every girl humongous tits. Dawn works best with A or B cup breasts at most. They fit her frame much better.
A lot of out of print pokemon merchandise is expensive on the resale. Just look at the Red Nendroid, at one point that thing had a resale of over $350.
Anything pokemon especially figures is going to be pricey considering Nintendo and Pokemon company are stingy with their franchises
I can't find it anywhere, do you know who made it?
That's not panties that's the inside of her skirt. The line is for the frills.
May/Dawn yuri lewdness is the best. I think they're the two most shipped together main girls of the anime in terms of fanart so far, although that's likely because they've co-existed for a decade since 2006.
Dawn/Serena yuri is probably catching up though, especially the ones that have the two of them with Ash as well.
While May/Dawn is indeed nice I'm more of a fan of Dawn/Serena which I hardly see anywhere.
Too bad that one pic of Dawn and Serena was the only one I have,
Posting the actual one TRUE pairing that involves Dawn.
>tfw you will never lick the back of Dawn's knees.
It's most likely she is Asian but it's not certain yet, she still has blue eyes.
>Also degenerates enough with the yuri go back to /u/ and /lgbt/.
It's all non canon, she isn't confirmed lesbian so it's best to assume she is straight.
>she is not confirmed Asian
It is pretty much confirmed she looks like an Asian girl. The blue eyes are to match her hair and also manga Dawn looks even more asian.
>she isn't lesbian it's noncanon
Fags here any minute will try to make evidence how she is a lesbian.
Need evidence for Dawn sure
Tell me with a straight face she isn't asian
Dawn is definitely the most Asian looking of all the girls. Long, straight dark hair, petite frame with a small chest, and her skirt resembles Japanese schoolgirls.
Compare her to May and Serena, who look western and European in comparison. May's brunette hair, huge breasts and bandana give her a western vibe, and Serena is intended to be a blonde French girl. Both with larger boobs.
Asian girl's are indeed I can see Dawn as JAV Idol is she was real when she get's older.
May is probably half white/half Japanese. Norman is probably Japanese, while Caroline her mother is white. That's also why May looks more like her mother while Max looks more like his father.
May was probably designed to look more western because she was the first playable female protagonist at the very started of a game generation with R/S in 2002.
Officially it was never given one. The anime very rarely defines genders for pokemon unless like, attract comes up.
Pikachu's gender was not officially confirmed until Diamond and Pearl of all things.
