NEXT: XY&Z10: Bonnie and Squishy! (Jan 14th)
>Satoshi and his friends are searching for Squishy. But during the search, Horubee ends up getting injured! Eureka blames herself for it... what does she end up doing?
>Eureka is feeling down now that Squishy has gone missing during the attack by the Flare Gang. The entire group starts searching for it, but during the search they accidentally end up angering a group of Dokurog, leading to Horubee getting injured. Eureka blames herself for it getting hurt and goes off in search for medicinal plants all by herself...

POKÉMON NO UCHI ATSUMARU? EPISODE 14 (Jan 10th)
XY&Z11: Noibat and Floette! An Encounter in the Wind!! (Jan 21st)
>While taking a break in a forest, Ash and his friends are listening to the screams of the "Sound Wave Pokémon" Noibat. However, while flying, Noibat ends up crashing into a wild Breloom. Noibat gets poisoned by the angry Breloom, but a passing Floette comes to the rescue.
XY&Z12: Ash and Serena! Getting One at a Dance Party!! (Jan 28th)
>While she's practicing for her next Tripokalon, Serena receives an invitation to a dance party for Pokémon performers. The rule is that performers and Pokémon both pair up one male and one female, so Serena participates together with Eevee, Clemont and Bunnelby. But then Serena's rival Millefeui shows up and suddenly brings up the topic of pairing up with Ash and participating with him.
XY&Z13: The Strongest Mega Battle! Greninja VS Mega Charizard!! (Feb 4th)
>While continuing their journey, Ash and his friends reunite with the enthusiastic boy Shota. Ash immediately challenges him to a battle, but as they're fighting, Ash's Greninja undergoes that mysterious transformation. However, exactly what causes Greninja to change forms like this is completely unknown...
>Bunnelbro has to put up with Eevee's shyness for a whole evening of dancing after having to deal with Chespin's shit for freaking ever
When will his suffering end, anons?
But best girl is already dancing with Clemont.
Lysandre subtly brainwashed Alan into thinking he has to bear all the burden for people he cares about. Basically, he became paranoid that he has to be strong enough to protect people from any future problem even before it happens all by himself. This is why Alan tries to handle everything, even fighting 2 legendaries all alone. Lysandre also isolated him from Sycamore so that no one can correct his mistaken notion.
Alan may act aloof and cold to push people away so they don't get in danger but he's actually appreciative of having someone there for him like when he thanks her. He seems like a lonely guy and she's the first girl persistent enough not to get scared away by his loner facade. Of course he'd get attached to her.
Jessie is probably dancing with James.
For the battle part however I think the pairs get switched around thus Millefeui and James ending up together. Jessie might end up with Clemont.
>Lysandre subtly brainwashed Alan into thinking he has to bear all the burden for people he cares about.

Such a naïve, easily impressionable fool, Alan is. Malva was right. Lysandre has corrupted a pure boy who only intended good.
>Bonnie basically bullies Clemont the whole time
>She lectures Clemont on how incompetent of a dancer he is as he trips over himself and sweats everywhere
>Ash will have his first loss since episode 36
>Ash will get rekt beyond belief because of Ash-Greninja's rules
>His Unfezant got anally devastated by a koffing
Holy shit, that's hilarious
Well, I think for Serena her Eevee is more important than Ash.
That scares me, becuase at the end of XYZ Serena can decide that her dream of being Kalos Queen are more important than Ash, too.
>Millefeui and James dancing
Bianca was the best part of BW
I don't fucking get it
Oh, come the fuck on, you're sounding like a Serebii Amourfag right now. Chill the fuck out and just enjoy the spaghetti we're going to get.
Fuck complainers and fart fags
I like how all the minor characters got love in BW
Well, when you can instill in someone's head the goal of "get strong enough to handle any future problem", it's also easy to twist what that future problem is.
>primal legendaries are being a problem to the people
> go and fight them so I can get the megalith
>we need to advance the mega research to save Hari-san
>keep fighting like a madman
>Zygarde's being a problem
>go and fight it so we can capture it
He's a very convenient attack dog that believes in what he's doing.
>looks up the guy
this is probably some random fag that doesn't have any important role on bulbapedo.
trust me, i frequent the site so I know the important fags.
I feel like XY gives focus to the individual Pokemon
They're bound to be back already, just not posting much with all the amourfagging taking up the seats.
Guys, GUYS. What if...James finds a way to partner up with Millefeui for the battle as part of a plot by TR to steal Pikachu and the other Pokemon?
>yfw Eevee is getting its ass kicked, then it evolves thanks to Serena's affection/amie
>TR make their move to capture the Pikachu and Sylveon
>Millefeui, Serena and Ash team up to blast off TR
>Millefeui is suddenly left without a tag battle partner, meaning another Serena battle is called off
We get dawn in her fancy clothes all the time not to mention her doppelganger is a princess
I love that outfit
This could pass for a Ballroom dress really.
Wait a minute
>looks like your typical edgy light novel protagonist
But one critical question still remains unanswered: how will Clemont and
Ashleyend up dancing with each other?
Would have been better to show Alan initially waffling over Lysandre's edict to him to stay away from Sycamore. Having Alan at least a LITTLE bit suspicious would have probably been better writing. Then, once Hari-san's coma is thrown into the picture, then he could go full edge and commit himself fully to Lysandre.
This entire episode was basically a Tripokalon. Its hard to believe we saw the first showcase back in DP in 2008. Even the woman with the Lopunny was basically the same thing as Elle.
That would mean he winds up wanting to be like Lysander. Much rather he sticks to the Anakin route.
Never thought this was some kind of contest or whatever, but alright. Just gonna hope they'll come back either way.
We didn't have Pokemon contests in Unova did we?
I know we had all those special battle events
>that description for our Amour episode
Good to see Millefeui will cause Serena to spill spaghetti as usual. But do we know why she chooses Clemont as her initial choice?
Stailbaiters need not apply.
There are always things that look like Contests in every series.
In Johto that breeder competition Brock entered Vulpix in (the one Suzie returns), was basically the same thing as a Contest just without any battling.
>Would have been better to show Alan initially waffling over Lysandre's edict to him to stay away from Sycamore. Having Alan at least a LITTLE bit suspicious would have probably been better writing.
True but this is still the pokemon anime and some things will ultimately be disappointing.
I wonder if they wanted to play with the concept of making pokemon do more than just battle back in the Kanto days
He's a bomb ready to blow up at any moment.
>I now know the reason you like that kid
What did she mean by this, /vp/?
>>Muh subs when?
>[PM] is subbing XY, but their releases can happen any time of the week.
I'm surprised nobody noticed this, but think it's about time we changed this to "[PM] is subbing XY&Z..."
>tfw no pearlshipping
>tfw Dawn won't feel jealous of Serena or viceversa
>instead of trying to teach eevee to work with others she basically tells its fine to be a shit and misses out on dancing with her crush
she deserves it
Technically they're subbing everything, though I guess it's to make it clear for those newfags who're only looking for the newest episodes.
Also, why the "but"? The preceding sentence is not a contradiction to the later one. Removing it
>[PM] is subbing XY&Z; their releases can happen any time of the week.
would be preferable.
>Slurpuff swinging Pikachu around like a rope
Dis gunna be gud
>we get Serena/Clemont and Eevee/Bunnelby because of Eevee's shyness
>no Ash/Serena and Greninja/Braixen
The difference is Georgia and Bianca are rivals, so are allowed to make return appearances. Jessica is a CotD for a pokemon debut episode, same with Premiere. Sanpei and Millefeui would probably be the best analogues, since they originally had no relation to the badge quest/tripokalons/team flare subplots, but Sanpei's eventually revealed Ash-Greninja, and Millefeui was made a performer.
Ironically Georgia has a pokedex but isn't on a badge quest, while Burgundy did start out on one and doesn't have a pokedex.
Either that or attract gets involved
The "but" is there since back during the early days of XY PM tended to release on a predictable schedule. Then release times kept slipping until we said 'fuck it' and changed that part.
>dat blue bowtie on Pikachu tho
>he also wore a blue bowtie in the MONSTAH ED
He cleans up good, doesn't he.
>The artist of the In The Bed strips messaged me back about the idea of him making a Serena/Milfy or Ash/Serena/Milfy threesome comic
>he asked for a link to the comment chain
>wanting to bully best girl
Pls no bully the Pikachu.
Anyone knows where can I watch Pokemon Movie 14 part 2 subbed? I tried kissanime, gogoanime and animetofu but the players are not working for me so many links with the dubbed version I want the subbed version I got already part 1 subbed
Whats the source of that close up?
At first glance i thought it was from some episode, but after some research...
This is why i don't visit pixiv
Are you being stupid or something?
She's trying to help a creature that she's responsible for.
Lolis love Brock
I think it might be a redhead thing
I still don't even know why the writers decided to bring him back for DP. He was already waning as a character during AG and by the time DP started they knew they were going to change the cast every series.
The DP trio had the most boring group dynamic of the series simply because Brock returned.
I watched the dub for 4 years then went to the Japanese audio, just recently I learned about the gen 3 dub debacle and I listened in to the new dubs. I can't believe how bad the dub is
>Ash and Barry keep running into each other when shit happens and everyone splits
>Dawn becomes fujo over the course of time because of them crashing into each other and seeing them in compromising situations
>we could've had Lucas
>instead we got Brock again
just like we could've had Hilda but instead we got Iris
why the fuck
We learned the Jap names months before the dub names, and the dub is terrible at naming side characters. The only one I like in XY right now is Aria. But even then I still call her highness by her jap name.
Barry? He could have been Dawn's childhood friend from Twinleaf town and still kept his obsession with Paul too. He obviously wouldn't do Gyms if he was traveling with Ash.
Barry in DP would be similar to what Clemont is now.
Because literally everyone knew Millefeui as Millefeui for half a year before they read on the Internet what a dub they don't watch decided to randomly rename her.
>all those faggots on Serebii that insist on using dub names for literally everyone even though they're posting in threads they know are full of people that don't follow the dub, and might not even watch the dub themselves
That's just going out of their way to be needlessly confusing
Who here Pokken?
Three days until Pokenchi featuring Kasuga's gains, a qt guy, qt Shoko and Rinka, and a Bonnie/Squishy episode preview.
I would have loved to see Barry do gymbattles while travelling with Ash. Both of them constantly trying to up eachother while using varying strats to win the battle. All winds up with a Sinnoh League battle similar to the BroBowl. They know eachother so well that the battle is heated as fuck.
>No hot onee-san Hilda trying to set up Yancy and Ash
>No Hilda/N and Yancy/Ash double deito to the ferris wheel
>No Ash VS Drake
>No Cheren rival trying to out smart Ash
BW could have been GOAT had it gone the XY route with Ash. This will never not hurt to think about.
At least on the PokeSpe side, Black got a qt with him.
>tfw White wanted Black cock
Hikari with Dawn was pretty good
Haruka and May didn't sound right, I understand Haruka's name but May is the one I don't understand oddly enough
Kasumi and Misty was okay
I don't understand why they changed Bel's name to Bianca and Langley into Georgia
They were pretty blatant with Zoey's lesbian overtones for Dawn. They probably would have went further with it if this wasn't a kids show.
>they all get animated for the episode
>Kasuga's gains get animated in HD
She could have been introduced later on in the series, like Ash/Hilda/Cilan go to a Poke Idol performance because Hilda likes that stuff.
After the performance Ash finds the transceiver, as he picks it up it rings, Yancy has already left the city but asks Ash to hang onto it.
Then, through out the rest of BW Ash recieves random phonecalls from Yancy and he talks to her about his struggles and shit like she does in the games.
We could have an episode where Hilda answers the phone and asks if who she's talking to is Ashs secret girlfriend which makes Yancy spaghetti all over the place.
>Giving Frog more screen time
Give the nigga a break, we haven't had any Forest Champion dedicated episodes in months.
>Kasuga gains in HD
I don't think my dick can handle that, anon.
Haruka and Kanata is also a bullet train in Japan, hence one of her rivals names.
Her name was changed to Kelly in the dub. Seems like 4kids always kept the first letter the same and changed it to some english name. Similar to Masato changed to Max because they both start with M.
This beats me every time.
>both Alan and manon are english names
>lets change them
>langley is an English name
>lets change it.
>megalith is an English word and a play one the whole "mega evolution" thing.
>lol legendary giant rock
That is interesting
They didn't edit her in the DVDs
Greninja is going to be taking up the spotlight for the next few months. I want a break from it so the rest of the cast can have some time on screen.
>Noibat gets evolution/training episodes
>Talonflame is League ready, maybe it'll learn a new move
>Pikachu is League ready, will probably get one more episode dedicated to it before the League
>Greninja get's TF/MegaBowl/Shota/Synchro Mastery
>Hawlucha still jobs but gets nothing
Things aren't looking good for the Luchador. Maybe he'll get a battle against Wulfric, but it'll probably be Talonflame/Noivern/Ashs 6th capture against him.
Hawlucha won't have much time for anything.
The dub never edited May's bust at all, thankfully. Unfotunately the Japanese animators themselves slimmed her figure down in the second half of AG, I wonder if it was because of 4kids influence.
Still the animators loved drawing her.
What's happening, all I hear is Hakuna Matata.
What are the best battles of this season?
>Not a lesbian, look:
Short hair: ok, tomboy
Man cloths: Fancy bishounen
Not boyfriend: She's a strong woman who don't need no man.
Hot for senpai: Senpai is gorgeous.
Well at least she does not have a ca ....fuck!
Hopefully Ash at one point.
>"Congratulations on getting the Princess Key, you're performance was great!"
>Jessie nearly slips on the spaghetti that falls out of her pocket.
>"W-whatever you say twerp!"
>"The only person that's called me that is..."
>AND SWITCH PARTNERS!
>Jessie has been added to the Ashbowl
>instead of Jari boy she says Cherry boy
But anon, the dub is great! It's on par with the DBZ dub.
Those silly Japanese voices and trying to read at the same time are just too distracting!
dubs > subs
PROVE ME WRONG! :^D
You could easily do it.
Best way to enjoy BW?
Pretend Ash is taking it easy; due to wanting a challenge after raping Sinnoh; and handicapping himself by being a moron.
Also he let that retard with the 5 Pokémon win because he felt sorry for him.
Ok, anon. I'm in.
>Before switching partners, the music changes to a slow dance song.
>Ash can't keep pace and....
>he let Cameron win
Would make sense since Pikachu was beating Lucarios ass the whole fight and even overpowered him in the Iron Tail collision despite Lucario resisting it 4x over while Pikachu only 2x resisted it and Lucario had STAB behind it, assuming STAB exists in the anime at least.
I like how you think, anon.
>Would make sense
BW Ash was just taking it easy the whole time.
Drake warned him about him about his overconfidence, can you imagine how confident he would be feeling after beating two legendary Pokémon?
Hell if Tobias wasn't there he would've won.
Would also explain why he would get pissed whenever Iris explained shit to him and talked down to him.
Never trust a man in bowties who cleans up good.
But that's what made her wonderful.
>J is the hero /vp/ needs
He is a big guy, but can he do the job?
You're recovering from head trauma right now, aren't you?
>watching the majority of it
You were warned and you wouldn't listen. You just wouldn't fucking listen.
You think I had a fucking choice?!
My little cousin would want to watch it in the morning when we were eating our breakfast.
You know what that means don't you!?
DUBS AND RERUNS.
>Not getting the best out of BW
Yeah, BW was pretty shit. Nonetheless, it had pretty good moments.
Don't regret anything.
Wait, so Eevee is the reason Serena isn't dancing with Ash? Holy shit, I'm crying here.
But seriously, atleast we know that Serena has priorities and is willing to put the happiness of a Pokemon who will play a big part in her potential performance career over a dance with her crush. You did good Serena, you did good. Now if only some of your fans could be as mature as you.
Whoa lad, careful where you show that shit taste.
Iris a jungle qt
who apparently is as much of a bitch as that Nadia girl.
Is Korrinas grandfather the Pokemon equivalent of Genji?
no it's because Eevee has autism and will only dance with Clemont's Bunnelby leaving Serena with no other option
It's all going according to the masochistic dog's plan. A swan song of sorts, before it bashes along with Luxio into party obscurity. Not even turning into a Nymphia will help it.
>implying this won't only lead to advanced autism
You know, for a jungle girl, she doesn't show a lot of leg often.
You're being dumb on purpose, aren't you?
Serena always takes care of her Pokemon. Everyone does. It isn't a case of priorities.
I wish we got Champion Iris's outfit in the anime
>your partner has an issue that affects its performance
>you don't try to fix it immediately and instead give in to its bullshit
you are training your mons wrong.
IF IT DOESNT WORK YOU RELEASE THEM
THEN IT SHOULD TRY HARDER
She has a cute swimsuit too
>yfw eeve is still shy as fuck even after evolve
Sure Iris had her very annoying moments but hindsight I didn't actually mind her that much. She had a cool team and it was nice that it was something different than the usual female game protag who becomes the female traveling partner. I wouldn't mind Iris coming back in XY.
I don't know about that, her new evolution looks pretty confident
Believe anon. Believe in the Lucha.
It makes sense why Ash was given so much endurance now that Ash-Greninja is a thing.
You don't even know
>Hawlucha as Captain Falcon
Oh sweet fuck, it just hit me.
>Team Flare decide to throw everything at him
>they forget the Pokemon and just use their blasters
>Ash-Greninja is being shot
>Ash feels it as if he were really being shot
She drowned and got blown up
They really hated her didn't they?
Ash has endured:
>Pikachus mega destroying Thunderbolt
>Enraged pigs Iron Tail
>Vanillice City freezing Blizzard
>Saving his waifu which resulted in a fucked up foot
Ash has given himself adequate body training leading up to GreninjAsh, but he needs the Bara to take him even further.
>Team Rocket with Giovanni
>Bonnie and Squishy
>Bluni attacked by Team Flare
>Team Rocket VS Team Flare in the forest
>Team Rocket VS Team Flare in the mountains
>Episode ends with Alain and Charizard attacking Zygarde
I can't stop thinking there will be new episode tomorrow
>TV Tokyo is showing "Conquer 140 Countries! Incredible Videos From All Over the World" from 7pm to 10:10pm on the 7th, eating both Pokemon and Naruto's regular timeslots (Cocotama and Aikatsu are not affected by this and air as usual).
>/vp/ being filled with frogs
Seems normal to me
>You can already tell from there that the animation is not as good as it should be.
Call me when Iwane will be able to do this.
One of them is the ol' baiter from here.
She returned just in time for suffering.
I just wish Sylveon wasn't so heavily featured in XY with other trainers so Serena's would be more exciting. It really takes the impact out of seeing a new pokemon on the cast when it was already shown so much in the series.
Don't worry, Serena will sync with Sylveon soon after, making her super special.
Or more likely Ash and Serena win an item for it during the dance competition making it more unique.
I also wonder if Serena is done with captures before Kalos ends. She'll probably make a 4th capture before the end of the gen as a whole, but since the Master Class and Kalos league are probably only a few months away now, I think this might be it.
I think Serena might only end up with 4 pokemon total for her entire run, similar to Iris in BW.
>yfw XYZ12 cast list pops us
>one of the tripokalon girls are voiced in her short dance with James
Who will be the lucky girl to get voiced? What will her name be in the credits? What would she say?
Bonus points: Your preferred seiyuu for the girl.
Psyduck Girl. She is voiced by Yuka Iguchi. She is actually very clumsy as such steps on James' feet constantly during the dance necessitating on her saying "Gomenasai!" over and over again.
>No new Pokemon episode
My nights get a little bit more lonely as the days go by, I just want to have fun with you guys.
Still think this is true, just the other way around at first.
>Ash steps on Millefeui's toes by mistake while he's trying to get with Serena meanwhile Millefeui's trying to pull him away meanwhile Serena's trying to get with Ash and has to deal with dead weight Clemont
CURRENT YEAR ANON
C U R R E N T F U C K I N G Y E A R
Then as a Sylveon it'll get Ash and Serena to dance while the Ash blind siding occurs.
>Ash dances with Milfy
>He keeps on stepping on her toes because he can't find the rhythm of the music
>Ash dances with Serena later
>They're both completely in sync with the music the entire time and dance perfectly
>It gets revealed before the end of the episode that Serena's trick was to use her fingers to tap out the beat on Ash's back, which allowed Ash to feel the beat without needing to hunt for it from within the music
I think it'd be qt as fuck.
>Ash and Serena are initially entirely out of sync
>Ash gets the idea to tap out his internal rhythm on Serena's waist, to indicate what he's dancing to
>Serena pieces together what he's doing and taps the beat of the music on his back
>Ash gives her a "thank you" nod, changes his tapping to match hers, followed soon after by his dance rhythm
>implying they haven't been in sync already
>implying the rhythm won't be Sylveon and Pikachu singing
the Laverre theme
Who here loves previews?
I sure do.
Here's a preview of the 3way, I had to compromise things to be able to upload this such as... Fuck it, you'll see it when you click on the spoiler.
It feels like I'm looking at the inner yelling of a lost soul that suffered through war.
