NEXT: XY&Z10: Bonnie and Squishy! (Jan 14th)
>Ash and his friends somehow managed to fend of the attack by Team Flare. However, Bonnie can't help but worry about "it", which went missing during the confusion of the battle.... While the group searches near Terminus Cave, they accidentally end up angering a group of Toxicroak and Bunnelby ends up injured! Bonnie blames herself for it and does something unthinkable!?
POKÉMON NO UCHI ATSUMARU? EPISODE 14 (Jan 10th)

XY&Z12: Ash and Serena! Getting One at a Dance Party!! (Jan 28th)
>While she's practicing, Serena receives an invitation to a dance party for performers.
Long hair Serena still bestrena. Have you guys accepted this yet?
As both variantsShe's really pretty.
>POKÉMON NO UCHI ATSUMARU? EPISODE 14 (Jan 10th)
Who's ready for this g
uy_? If it doesn't fucking work this time...
So Adamant, what did you think of pic related's Pokenchi appearance
and the Pokémon drawings?
Ash will pass away at the league from Ash-Greninja injuries with a smile on his face knowing what it means to be a Pokemon master after losing just barely in the finals.
He will give Serena Pikachu's Poke Ball and she will drop it upon finding out Ash passed away, it will simply end there with some music and a shot that simply zooms away from Ash's corpse sitting down on a bench.
>you will never bring a smile to Rinka-chan's face by drawing a Pikachu for her
that's what happens when you rely on shitty dancing skills instead of actually fighting.
do you see any dancing here b? nah son all skill.
I'll laugh when the battle is turned around by sylveon's dancing
Pic related prevents Millefeui from being perfect.
I just hope that the Master Class involves battling in some way, shape or form.
Shauna with Venusaur and Florges
Millefeui with Slurpuff and Meowstic
Nene with Jynx and Gothitelle
Jessie with Wobuffet and Gourgeist
Just going hard and beating the shit out of each other.
Would make the entire thing a lot more entertaining and actually watchable.
Considering Ash beat TR with Pikachu blinded it doesn't make a ton of sense to see Pikachu out first with Eevee still healthy.
And Mamoswine was also disobedient. It isn't the same.
>Because Nando proved that rivals should stick with one thing and one thing only.
The guy that gathered 8 badges and 5 ribbons and made it to the top 8 of the Grand Festival AND the top 32 of the Pokemon League despite starting his Sinnoh quest at the same time as Ash and Dawn?
If anything he proved the exact opposite.
That's not what I meant. He had no personality, poorly written, hardly any interaction with other characters. It's like the writers forgot about him and were like 'oh crap we made this guy collect badges too let's just throw him in somewhere'.
When did the anime became so gay? At my time it was just about a boy going in a adventure and battling others guys, now it's full of these contests to cater to the girls, fillers about pure friendship and others annoying things like Bonnie which they just put in for little girls to have a self-insert character... It still has some good times, but it's like swimming in a poll of shit to reach in the good side.
The problem with XY is that it feels too peaceful, there is no real struggle going on where things are hard to achieve. You're right about Bonnie, she shouldn't even be there, she is only there for young girls to self-insert. It's better to focus on 3 characters and have more an older audience with money flock to the main girl instead.
Dat Fennekin and Florges though
And with long hair she hardly has any competitors.
Good body and she has an assertive personality but..
>Weird short hair.
>Unnatural eye color.
Still good overall but doesn't mean much compared to the top tier girls.
Says the guy who replies to obvious bait
>Ash chooses to dance with Serena
>dancing for a bit but partners have to be traded
>neither realize that Ash is being turned over to Millefeui
>Ash remains calm and it isn't until Serena turns around and sees Millefeui turn to her and give her a smug look that Serena reacts
>Ash tries to go back to dancing with Serena but Millefeui keeps pulling him away while Serena has to deal with dead weight Clemont
>chance arrives and Ash and Serena get back together
>they don't get to have a proper dance until the end of the episode
Real talk though, I really hope Omode doesn't make Ash out to be a complete dick. As in he just goes along with Millefeui with no problem ignoring Serena leaving her frustrated, so Bonnie has Clemont swoop in and brighten her day.
You KNOW the animators do this stuff on purpose.
I didn't make it. I just reposted it from the Christmas thread.
This Serena x Clemont pairing is beyond autistic. There hasn't even been 1 hint at them being interested in one another.
I thought you knew at this point he's shitposting. They show people switching dance partners and Millefeui isn't battling with Ash. Then again, he'll start with the usual anyway.
That's the point. Serena wants to dance with Ash, but Milfie's all "muh legs" and steals Ash, so Serena is stuck with Clemont. Not wanting to make Clemont sad, she dances with him, all the while giving mean looks towards Milfie who just put on a tease smile back at her.
Keep telling yourself that.
Clemont will NEVER have a waifu si vous pla^it
He already has a waifu.
Seriously though, he's saying bullshit for the sake of baiting and getting his (You)s. He's going to start the same shit and start his circlejerk again. Even he knows he's saying crap. I hope, anyway.
It's starting to feel like stalebaiter's replying to himself again.
Too many. That one's the guy who shits up people's new threads by posting duplicates of the OP text, spamming "5 is the Amour number" pics as well as ebin image macro memes over and over again.
speaking of, If you ever wondered why I never story timed the rest of chapter 4 it's because nothing really happens past the "look at misty's new outfit which is totally original".
>clemont and bonnie show up and do nothing
>misty still has togetic for some reason. It's also Ash's shouldermon now because fuck pikachu.
>Ash still has GSball for some reason and sleeps with it (what's inside? who knows!.)
>Serena, being the horrible monster of a bitch that she is, tells gold about how he raped misty in a dream that felt real
>gold cries and apologizes, misty cries and tells him it's okay, misty now hates Serena. (an by that I mean she's not pretending to be nice. everyone hates serena)
Now you're all caught up.
There's actually rule 34 of Serena with this outfit.
I was wondering why short haired serena was randomly inserted at the bottom but then I realized that it was actually misty and supposed to be one of those "faded image of person they're thinking about" moment. God this is terrible
You know what.
I can get why certain people are so hostile against Serena.
I can get that they could go all the way out to satisfy their views.
But this woman takes it to the "WE WUZ KANGZ" levels of extreme.
It's going to get worse once the dance episode airs and they pull that Ash and Serena moment.
Now comes the part where stale baiter tries posting his shit again.
>Serena, being the horrible monster of a bitch that she is, tells gold about how he raped misty in a dream that felt real
I'm sorry, what? how is this a big deal? it had literally no repercussions whatsoever. Is misty so sacred that she couldn't make it real rape so she made it rape that technically didn't even happen but still treat it like rape? That way misty can stay pure for ash and still have a rape subplot?
jeez you can't have your cake and rape it too.
Nope, just facts. Serena and Clemont dancing will happen but not Ash and Serena. The writers set-up Clemont/Serena over time, now Omode will make it happen by having them dance together.
You should make a vector of it. I would do it myself, but I already made one.
to be fair that's the entirety of the gold arc. For perspectives sake charizard vs psychic super power gold happens off panel so we could do this. She literally pauses the climax just to shit on serena, then skips it so she can reach stealing serena's design faster.
I remember that part.
>Red and Serena arrive
>You'll help us right Dad! oh, hey serena.
>serena: MISTY MISTY MISTY I'M SO JEALOUS, DID I MENTION I WAS A BITCH
>fuck you serena, yeah fuck you.
>literally ash mega evolving charizard and the fight don't happen so Red can also tell serena how much of a bitch she is
This thing is a goldmine
Just wondering how the subs are looking and how soon is soon?
>misty release your golduck!!
Fuck that's funnier than it should be.
I'd support her anyway.
Not like Nami was ever going to return at this point.
Ash and Serena won't dance together at all. And no, this picture doesn't mean they switch. It's called random shuffling.
So i imagine the battle is gonna be interrupted for some bullshit reason
Bonnie tried to KEEPU her with little bird. Also, she was too occupied with her own height and inability to fly than to think about her brother's affairs.
So how would Serena handle meeting each girl?
They way I imagine:
>Starts off well
>Ash keeps doing 'Jumping of the Lumoise Tower-tier' stupid stuff
>Misty keeps getting mad at him and shouts at him
>Serena gets mad at her and tell her he's just being Ash
>Argument between the two
>Ash is caught in the middle
>Ash does something stupid again but fucks up
>Serena and Misty forced to work together
>After Ash is saved Serena and Misty realise that they both have points
>Starts off great
>Ash does cool shit with May
>Serena gets jealous because they're completely in sync with each other
>May gives her a pep-talk, "Don't be sad because I'm badass as fuark and you aren't."
>May introduces Serena to Pokémon Contests and Serena introduces her to those Kalos Queen things, I forget the name...
>May: "Lets have a double battle contest! Me and Clemont versus Ash and Serena, Bonnie you judge it."
>Serena and Ash work together and create something beautiful.
No. Not a child, calm the fuck down.
>However they still get btfo by May mega-evolving her Blaziken because everyone in Hoenn can mega-evolve for some reason
>See above but with Dawn instead of May
>Gets hit by a truck
>Langley appears instead of Iris to find some Fairy-type Pokémon
>Serena recommends Sylveon, they battle for shits and giggles
>Langley ask Ash why he done so shit at the league and lost to a kid with 5 Pokémon
>"Oh, I let him win."
>"You did? But why were you generally just a shit at everything in Unova?"
>"After wrecking Sinnoh I decided to give myself a handicap to make things interesting, 'No calling back old Pokémon and no sending out Pokémon with a type advantage.'"
>I wake up and realize it was all a dream.
>Lie back down, try not to cry.
>Cry a lot.
>still one day and one more week until next ep starts
>still three more weeks until shitposting ends
I can't handle this burden for so long, Sam.
It's never going to end Frodo. It never ends.
Do you remember the comfy threads, Mr Anon? It will be mid-January soon. And the data broadcasts will be revealed. And some summaries might be released as well in magazine leaks. And Adamant will be giving the first subs of the new year...Do you remember the sound of subs?
A-atleast we have CoroCoro next week which will tease about a great announcement on March issue, and everyone will be shitpost speculative.
daily reminder that raph bakshi thought this was Sam
does anyone remember all those breaks during the first BW tournament?
I remember I lost all interest before the third episode of the tournament
May was very into romance and getting couples to admit their love to one another (as seen in that Volbeat/Illumise episode), I'm sure she would pick up on Serena's crush right away and help her get to Ash.
May and Serena are very similar either way, they would probably bond over both not knowing what to do and having no goal, tagging along with Ash, both having Eevee's, and both having a fire starter.
It's not finished yet, but is it good or bad?
Sorry for the placeholder names.
Adamant, why is she so perfect?
>ten years old
>This hot girl with Glaceon and Leafeon.
That one's Green Maki.
>even leaving Hari-san's bedside
Come on Mr. Adamant. I can't carry the thread for you, but I can carry you! COME ON!
I'm going to rewatch Return of the King tonight.
She'll get a delicious mind-raping instead.
>yfw PM represents Valinor, the Uttermost West, where the gods lay and watch over us, and news from them is like the Western wind blowing the dark clouds that cover these threads

Pretty shit week for TV in general, for obvious reasons
>not epic songs in their original form
I really appreciate the compliment, though, anon. Now that the holidays are done, hopefully I'll have more stuff coming down the pipeline soon.
>yfw the reward for the dance party battle is a card for an outfit
>yfw Serena has to compete in non-Tripokalon events for Performers to collect the entire set of cards Aikatsu style
>the outfit is the Majorette Outfit and she wears it for the master class
It's an issue with 4chan, shit doesn't paste right.

Good night, you flamboyant faggolas.
What is it that makes people forget Lily's name so much?
They didn;t watched the subbed episode
Binacle or Phantump for James when?
And fucking Skrelp for Jessie when?
>actually remembering any of these girl's names that have been uninteresting or don't stand out in any way or manner
Your waifu name is Clarisse? You actually pretend to be a grill?
Shit taste, m8.
>Less than 12 hours before the full Bonnie/Squishy summary and voice cast is set to come out
Fuck, I don't think my heart can take any more Bonnie suffering.
How exactly will her smile be protected, /vp/?
No where yet.
Also I keep getting warnings every time I mention something about posting them, so I'm guessing there is one janitor constantly monitoring.
I'll post the images on /b/ once I'm done since DA doesn't allow porn.
Would also explain why the thread has been getting cleaned up recently, that and the shitposting.
>You're a cheeky cunt
Check the name.
Check the image.
You're damn right.
I can't live without her. Why can't she just be back on the show already?
>Ducklett girl and Swanna girl are around dancing
>Ducklett girl got farther than Swanna girl
>Ducklett girl ends up being Swanna girl's sister
>tfw (their faces when) they keep focusing on ugly-ass Nene instead
No, it's always at the same time by the same guy.
>there were honest to goodness original anime character designers for the anime that designed her and others, from Clarisse to Blanche
>somehow someone thought it would be a better idea to use Nene's hodge podge of a design (little hat and shitty dress color scheme) as one of Serena's rivals instead of the best designs the character designers could come up with
So whatshername gonna be in the dance, right?
>still no decent art of her from either awa, pokemoa, or those other pixiv artists that hang out in twitter too much.
Because that would take more than a 1 click journey, and I'm too lazy for that.
Also here's a preview of the 3way.
Yes you can request non-lewds.
How about Ash and Serena dancing?
Since no one seems to be doing that.
Not even the animators! :^)
I'll never understand why they turned it from /tr/ to /vp/
"Hey, lets stop allowing porn threads! That'll stop the shitposting!"
Hell the Garybombers were/are more effective than the mods.
What if for the 20th anniversary of the anime they bring back this kid
Watch, the episode will end with Ash and Serena dancing under the moon because of Sylveon and all those moon shots it gets. The battle happens during what seems to be in the afternoon.
It's more in reference to the porn that got posted then deleted here not too long ago, but I'd say the drawfag is probably walking a fine line by posting so overtly about drawing lewds here.
/a/ allows it a bit more as long as you censor the parts I suppose. Part of it I guess though is because of ecchi anime and legit screenshots having T&A. Otherwise it's still no go.
Relax m8 I know they'll dance together, I reckon it'll go like:
>Battles are finished Ash and Serena win
>As a reward Ash gets to dance with Elle first
>As a reward Serena gets to dance with Pierré first
>Millefeui then dances with Ash
>Serena is about to switch and dance with Ash...
>Bonnie cuts in "I want to dance with Ash next!~"
>Queue a montage of Serena getting cockblocked by other girls
>Dance ends right after Ash and Jessie dance together
>Afterwards Ash and Serena will find themselves alone somewhere
>Ash will turn to Serena and ask her to dance since they didn't get the chance to
/padt/ go nuts like they did when Ash gave Serena the ribbon.
What can I say? I love keeping the jannies on their toes. :^)
I'm just saying. Although I figure Ash and Serena get together just in time for the battle pairings.
I saw that face.
People didn't go nuts about the ribbon until after the whole deal with the ribbon was explained. I stayed up two days straight and Japan's twitter was just rapid-firing. It's going to go a level above just asking for a dance.
Someone still needs to fucking explain what Japan actually said about the ribbon itself and any added significance. Yeah I've seen all the explanation that was derived from secondhand sources but a bit more detailed description of what exactly the Japanese viewers' tweets said and exactly WHY they saw the ribbon scene as more important (basically firsthand info, not secondhand) would have been helpful.
They're probably just going under the logic that shitposting wouldn't get you fired from work instantly, watching porn however would.
Guess that's the whole "worksafe" boards thing, which is retarded given it's 4chan and no one should be browsing the at work.
fook off m8 I'll make u tap dance
Sure, it's just that the first two people to ask for something were lewds.
I know right? I'm reminded of /pol/ and Ron Paul.
/a/ allows nude pictures now I believe, but any porn isn't allowed.
If you can name some other anime where that happens that would be most helpful, though again actually getting to see some of the nip tweets translated would be even better, as autistic as that might be.
Though I think what matters most is that they did react so strongly, whether it's for the reasons we think or not.
I was reading through the whole thing. The "secondhand" was the explanation as to why Japan went into a frenzy. They're not going to be talking about something that's common knowledge to them.
Not that bad compared to Serena picture. Every result is male around age 28.
There are to many examples to list.
Giving gifts through birthdays, whiteday/valentines, a date
which was what the episode Serena received the ribbon involved, through hanging out, all can be seen as significant development in two characters growth together. Especially when the gift is incorporated into that characters overall appearance or makes repeated appearances through out it's show/manga.
Characters receive gifts like plushies similar to Tohka from Date a Live, or a ribbon like Houki from Infinite Stratos, and when it comes from someone of the opposite sex after a date or some signifigant event it's usually triggers a romance flag between those two characters.
If Ash did this while asking, amour would be stronger then ever. Ashs getting embarrassed/bashful over asking her to dance would basically blow the fuck out of all shitposters for all eternity.
It would be glorious.
Sweet, naive, child.
You don't know how much they'll shitpost and how much they've been shitposting anyway.
So in other words this is standard shit
Not that that changes anything we already knew, any idiot knows what the scene meant, but neat to know that other animu do it so it's a pretty easily recognizable thing for viewers there
Tohka got her bread plushie during her first date with Shido while he was trying to seal her in episode 3, and was desperate to get it because she and Shido did their best to try to win it form a crane game. Houki got her ribbon as a birthday gift from Ichika when hers was destroyed in the second to last episode I believe.
I don't think it's stale m8
>Ash wins a giant Pokepuff plush the size of a giant bean bag chair for Serena
>Tag battle tournament at a fair
>Grand mystery prize for the winning duo
>Ash and Serena enter
>They win and receive matching sweaters
>Bonnie with a hairstyle like that
It's so weird.
Do they make those for certain; less familiar characters? Pic maybe related.
ONE THING, I DON'T KNOW WHY
IT DOESN'T EVEN MATTER HOW HARD I TRY!!!
