You guys still prefer short hair Serena in 2016?
Fucking hell. That fake episode 13 title still hurts. Kudos to whoever made me look forward to a narutoad and tacohawk focused episode.
Do you think they'll get one eventually?
>In the league

>Cut! Cut! Cut!
>The thrill of battle in me boils!
>I will win tomorrow!
>Which way is victory?
> Pic related, it's Ash after the league finals
>You know you want it
I declare myself guilty
>that sexhair girl at bottom right
Looks like a young mother or a college student.
Love these pastel stills, it reminds me of
We finally got the Hoopa OVA in HD:
>Pocket Monsters - Movie 18 Special - The Minidjinni of the Word Appear!
Let's add it as a RAW to the OP in the next bread.
Look at all these people with their own lives to lead. I bet this niggah on the left is a harem protagonist and is with
I don't know I think she looks alright
fuck me her tails look like fucking pool tubes
Never mind, the image of her that got posted here initially after XY91 showed a view that blocked the back part of her hair, so apparently she's had her hair like that since the beginning.
It's all right. She's still a qt and my second favorite non-Serena Tripokalon girl.
>dat fucking animation
If I recall correctly, Adamant said a number of months back that they would re-release the subs once they got the Bluray. Not sure if that's still the case. I don't want to speak for him, so let's wait to see what he says.
>all this shit just to properly animate how a viscous chocolatey fluid would fall properly on a round surface
Even my boys are impressed.
Impressive, most impressive
>yfw you now realize there is no one to eat the PokePuffs that were baked here
>they were all just for show
Niggah, this shit be kawaii.
>not translating as
YOU'RE SUCH A KID!
Eh, regardless of which term you choose, I think most of us can agree that Chespin totally deserves that designation.
>didn't even dance
>just narrated what they were doing
>yfw Jessie passed through sheer fucking charisma and the presentation of her fucking Puffs
I'm a hungry motherfucker I'd eat 'em all
The continuation. Plainface is about to punch a niggah out if it wasn't for his girlfriend.
Girl on the right is now mostly amused. Ponytail girl at the bottom has had enough of James' shit.
This thread is as shitty as the anime. They need to do a side series that is actually good.
>Everyone has to introduce themselves every fucking time.
>episodes where the group gets divided
>ash's unique "battle style" consists of using the same move over and over
I haven't seen a single thing that hasn't been done countless times already. I'm not asking for much. I just want something that is watch-able. The only saving grace this season (or any other season for that matter) is no more of Cilan. Most annoying fucking character by far.
>Ducklett Girl not showing off her best asset: her navel
That's what you get for using the monkeys.
I want her to be voiced and given a name. ;_;
>yfw you will never have donut pillows
This is a first.
These other bitches didn't even pass what are they still doing there?
I see Charming Voice because Eevee's evolution in Sylveon would mark her rebirth into a non-fearful and brave Pokemon who's no more afraid of being in front of everyone.
Plus, she's the beauty of the anime so it suits her on the seduction aspect.
Not from me. I only went in a rant when I saw this in the OP:
>Is this season good? I haven't watched the anime in [x] years and-
>Yes, it's fucking good, just start watching it already.
It's as trash as every other season. I'm glad some people like it but it's fucking trash.
Oh, just like how they practiced those many episodes ago.
I see how Jessie still likes using fireworks for her finale.
Cutie montage. Ducklett Girl
Good night, you flamboyant faggots.
Surprised eevee didn't flee like last time
Goddamn, this pose, the way she dress, and her demeanor, that fucking wink. This is so goddamn lewd. Holy shit.
If you know any good lewd artists and have the power to compel them to draw, then pls have them make lewds of her goddammit.
Not yet. Little shit can't even sync and pose properly. That's a big no-no here.
>Eevee is somehow able to balance on top of Serena's arms
>pokemon anime discussion thread
I'm discussing the anime. Also helps me keep track of the new episodes.
Just say the truth. It's not very good but were going to watch it and try to have a good time. I watch it but I admit it's bad.
Baby steps, anons. First, it overcame its fear of fireworks, which was low-hanging fruit. Next, it has to overcome its stage fright, which is a much tougher cookie to crack. This will all require time.
>just twirling around in a middle of a fire circle
Which is probably one reason why she lost, the other being Eevee fucking up. Literally the same shit that she did when she won her first key, the only difference being she threw Eevee up into the air a few times.
You know, one day, I hope we get a performance where the Performer is so in sync with their Pokemon that they don't even need to call out the moves.
I bet Diantha would make a great Kalos Queen.
I would say this was going to be foreshadowing of Eevee evolving into Umbreon, but it is actually a callback to it dancing in the Getta BanBan OP and in it's debut episode.
I forgot what cycle of the moon it was.
Adamant, you deserve a Serena for delivering XY&Z08 subs.
>Not wanting to fuck the hottest eeveloution.
What are you, ¿gay?
Oh, it looks like Lily and Mightyena Girl finally fucking left.
Because using Chansey is so blase, like, so 10 years ago.
There is also a folklore on how Wigglytuff defended some place from marauding Dragon Pokemon, so there's that. It's their culture.
Nice save, Serena.
>still no episode where there is a mahou shoujo girl who does Tripokalons as well
All we have is mahou shoujo Serena.
You'll need to be more specific, there's at least two.
Look at her all the way to the side.
Look at her again. Dayum.
Yeah, she deserved it.
What are these called? Arm warmers?
Never give up until the very end.
I'm pretty sure that's what Yashio demands to surpass Elle. Absolute confidence and full synchronisation from start to finish, with no need to call out moves or anything. Synchronisation has always been the key in most shounen series, and it's even more the case now in Pokemon with the Greninjash. I'm pretty sure Serena needs to attain her own synchro to be able to burst through the Master Class.
And now for what this episode lacked because of Oak.
>May: cried, got motivated by Ash and I can't remember what else
>Dawn: cried and called mom; got motivated by Ash
>Serena: heartbreaking crying, motivated herself and cut her hair
am I close here
>dem Jessie curves
>Serena: heartbreaking crying, motivated herself and cut her hair
Pathetic compared to how the others got motivated.
>still believing the other girls matter
Can't wait to see Ash's version of this scene
I just hope she shows up on the bellroom dance episode
No, no like this. I mean a dancing synchronisation with all of her Pokemon, one she would have to come up with at the cost of training and pain. It would be really ridiculous if they came up with the same bond as Greninjash, especially considering there's no densetsu build-up nor reason to do it. Ash's bond is a nekketsu plot device. You don't win dancing and cooking competition through sheer brute force.
They're top-notch waifus, aren't they.
What the hell is this? A reaction image for ants?
Agreed, she looks drop-dead gorgeous here.
As much as I dislike Jessie, Musavi still does things to me.
btw, whats Musavi's english name?
Wet hair Jessie best Jessie. However, if it was chanced permanently it would be just as bad as wanting short hair on Serena.
I don't relish the thought of either of those potentialities, anon.
Yep, only Kanto and Johto Jessie is the real Jessie. She is too comical these days and clownish these days.
>Alain in the English dub has the exact same voice actor as Shadow the Hedgehog
...they did this on purpose, didn't they?
It's like poetry.
No he's not, you ignorant fuck, >>24936435 is more right, though even he's wrong, Silver was Pete Capella, and now Quinton Flynn.
Also, >>24936450, dub is shit from 2007 onwards, why you would subject yourself to such torture I do not know.
>mention two edgy characters in one post
>/padt/ flips a switch
>the current Sonic cast is far worse than the original 4kids cast
Seriously, Shadow sounds like complete and utter trash now, and Amy's voice doesn't fit her character in the slightest.
Episode starts. Not even 10 seconds in Georgia appears out of nowhere with her butt in the screen. No introduction from the narrator, no nothing. Just straight "hey let's get this episode's plot started".
I'd bust her with my dragons, if you know what I mean.
>not even a flashback to make us connect with her motivations
>she just explains why she hunts dragon pokemon
Even Burgundy's character was treated better.
This is a bad song, Rica's voice should sing better, and the visuals are shit.
What's that thing on the upper right?
While I agree on those two sounding better in 4Kids than Studiopolis (odd), 4Kids and Sonic was a terrible combination, Griffith couldn't fucking act his way out of a paper bag as Sonic, Tails sounded like a girl with a sore throat, etc.
This is the truth-
Pokemon: 4Kids = Origins Dubbers > TAJ > DuArt
Sonic: Adventures > Studiopolis > 4Kids
>she sees it
For what purpose? It takes all up to Dragonite to appear for Iris to catch and use another dragon?
So much for Dragon Master.
I wonder if her having an Excadrill was ever foreshadowed.
Hey, just like Dragonite.
That's a damn sexy way of saying "Bye."
While Griffith's Sonic didn't make me want to strangle something like, say, Natochenny's Ash, I never thought it was good even then, he always had this stilted delivery and it could be annoying.
RCS, meanwhile, seems to forget he's voicing a 15 year old, yet unlike Griffith he can actually act...
Ryan Drummond was the best Sonic.
NOBODY TOLD ME THAT THERE'D BE LOLI IRIS IN BW!
See? Not everything in BW is so bad.
It's a note saying to switch to digital TV as soon as possible. These episodes aired back when Japan were about to shut down analog TV, so there were constant "switch to digital now or you won't be able to watch TV anymore, faggot" notes like that all the time.
What is this black child doing to this poor innocent Pokemon?
Beats those retarded DP and XY Team Rocket incarnations, my brain cells die seeing their shit circus unfold. TR is stale as fucking biting rocks with your teeth now.
He's great, I agree there.
I can't believe Ash never got to battle this guy.
Korrina, AJ, Iris, all these characters have one thing in common:
Nah, man, BW was doomed from the start. It was in the shadow of DP, gutted Ash's design into a cutie shota depriving him of ever looking serious, resetted Ash and made him into a worse idiot than OS, and not just that, it didn't have the luxury of having his original bratty dickhead, made him lose to a rookie Trainer with the blandest design, turned Iris and Cilan as poor man's Misty and Brock, jarringly turned TR into suddenly competent villains that always got away, gave Ash all three starters and evolve only one of them. Not to mention the fact that BW's storyline was on the ball and the anime's storyline would be unjustly compared it,
It was also named BEST WISHES. BEST WISHES? WHO NAMES THEIR SERIES LIKE THAT? Might as well name it Sayonara, bitch, because that's what people are gonna do once they see it.
The earthquake and tsunami as well as B2W2 creeping in the horizon instead of a proper third game was the final in the coffin, It was a long dragged out death for BW. Poor little shit never stood a chance.
Yeah, Iris, don't be such a fucking kid.
Is there a difference?
Damn, I'm sorry, but Iris really looks fucking ugly here.
More or less, yeah.
Even back when it had just started, most people were mostly just interesting in seeing where the Rocket plot was going. Not so much because it was all that interesting, but because it was new and different.
Great performance from the seiyuu.
Thank fucking goodness Ash is the one now that metes out these things. Ash has barely talked throughout this episode.
I honestly can't picture Zinnia with her voice. She needs a deeper
Yeah, she's fucking great. If I actually cared for Iris, this would have moved me.
You know when she doesn't open her big mouth and she's sleeping like this. Iris looks kinda cute, kinda.
What the fuck. That's not even possible.
I still want a smug girl rival for Ash. Bianca was terrible and Casey was barely there until she completely disappeared.
>yfw she tells you she's getting a divorce just to see your shocked face.
What a fucking tsundere.
Yes, i used to like the old design but i like more the new one
>steal their food
>demands to prepare better food next time
Damn, I just love the way she says bye.
>implying he isn't the perfect balance of hot and cute
ALL THE HOMO
So that was Georgia's debut episode. Huh. She was more like a bloody plot device rather than a character. Coming and then going just to antagonize Iris and Excadrill to fix their shit.
Also, if I knew nothing about the anime, I would have thought Ash was a side character. Like, holy shit, if you removed Ash from the episode nothing would change. Iris and Georgina pretty much just interacted with Cilan.
>yfw there's actually a tag on pixiv that pretty much translates to
I love her interactions with Zorua
