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...
Someone ont hr last thread said that James and Millufini (or however you spell it) were known to not be great battlers.
James actually has shown to be a skilled battler when he's not fighting alongside Jessie so there may be a chance that he and Milly might win
Git gud and git /fit/, Clemont.
Noibat still a qt
>so ichigo had never win the starlight queen cup?
Ichigo tried in the middle of her second year (since she transferred midway through the first year after it had already taken place) and almost won, but Mizuki ended up keeping the title for the third year straight. She went to America right after and came back one year later, barely missing that year's edition which was won by Otome. Then she graduated middle school and entered high school meaning she couldn't participate anymore. Next year, Sakura won and now it's almost time for it to be held again.
>dat homoscience compliment by Ash to Clemont
The return of the royal "we", I see.
>Z1: Are you unharmed?
>Z2: We are.
Team Flare has used the energy signature given off by Z2's psionic communication with Z1 to track down Z2's location.
Aliana has no idea what's about to hit her.
Why are they so snarky, /vp/?
>Squishy uses the royal "we" to refer to itself
>Bonnie refers to herself in the third person
What's next? Abbott and Costello's "Who's on First, Pokemon Edition"?
>Team Rocket goes through all that trouble to ad lib a one-time, situation-specific motto
>nobody gives a shit
So snarky. So cavalier.
I love it.
Shota is the "I look up to you, senpai" rival who wants to become as strong as Ash.
Tierno is the non-threatening, non-harmful, funny and fat rival who's on friendly terms with Ash.
Alan is the serious, edgy, chuuni, "Sauce" rival to Ash. The kind of faggot who will call Ash weak and will call upon DARKNESS to become stronger.
TF grunts doing something besides spamming Dark Pulse fucking when?
I swear had it not been for the fact that Kalos is the fashion capital of the Pokemon world I would say I dislike Team Flare's glasses and grunts
Which snarky TF admin chick do you want the most, anons?
>Eureka: I'll protect you, no matter what. I promised that I won't let you go.
>if Trevor gets it
Personally, I think it will end up like this:
Mega Blastoise (and not very sure of this, though)
Charizard (an unruly one, like Ash's in OS)
>Bara: There's nothing to be done about this child...
Bryony confirmed to be Iris in disguise.
You mean besides Tierno being the bigger battler of the three and giving the mega to the one who spends the least amount of time actually doing something with their Pokemon which is why it gets so uppity?
Oh you dunnit now, bitch.
Wait until alain returns on the light side
Still the best episode yet and I love how Ash wrecked two TF admins at the same time with just one Pokémon to the point they ran away. Did he ever get to do that against evil teams in previous series?
A low class rookie green as the grass surely can legitimately become a worthy rival, no asspulls, no shitty writting, just because he can be one, he can be one.
Ps. kill yourself, moron.
TF's scientists are walking, talking reaction-image generators.
>he thinks in order to be a worthy rival he must defeat Ash and not just give him a great battle
There's a reason Ash supports him anon. Shota will not beat Ash, but as long as he makes him pump his blood it will be enough.
Go back to DP with your standard writing. And strangle yourself while you're at it.
>Satoshi: If it ran from those guys, it might be hiding somewhere.
>Citron: Either that, or it did not want to cause us trouble...
>Eureka: No! It protected us, remember? Squishy is our friend. It must be waiting for us somewhere!
>Satoshi: You're right.
>Citron: It is exactly as you say, Eureka.
>Eureka: Yeah. Wait for us, Squishy!
Dem juicy lips
Foreshadowing for the future episodes with Bluni-chan/Z2.
XY&Z10 is really gonna bring out the feels, guys. Fuck.
>Next episode: Eureka's teary resolve!
>Bonnie: Wait for us, Squishy!
>Alan: Wait for me, Manon!
They're trying to protect those that matter to them... except unbeknownst to Alan, he's abetting a terrorist in the process.
kek, I never noticed Pikachu's face when Greninja transformed.
>Ash and Serena narrate
>Ash and Serena try having it go back with just the two of them
>Clemont says the title during the episode just like he did the date episode
>Alan goes off the deep end
>Manon begs Ash to bring Alan back from DARKNESS
>Alan finds out she's betraying him
And that's how those "I'll protect Manon" become his hands on her throat.
>you will never have this kinda of bond, pikachu... NEVER!!
episode was so fucking great.
remember when the thread's OP used to have a section saying "season will peak soon"? who would had known we would get this far and still going strong.
>get your mons and their grunts shit on by Zydoge
>get delayed by Ash and Greninja pretty much ruining their entire mission
>only have Manetric and Liepard left while they are faced up against not only Greninja, but Pikachu, Noibat, Braixen, and Luxray as well
>still stops to taunt despite the entire situation is against them
You're really getting desperate there and replying to your own posts, aren't you?
Hit the showers.
>They're trying to protect those that matter to them.
The difference is that Bonnie is allowing Puni-chan to protect them as well. It is a mutual thing. I guess, it is also comparable between Puni-chan and Alain, where he tried protecting Bonnie and gang and then ran away from them so that they will not get involved.
So many parallels.
You've probably already gone as far with it as you reasonably can, anon.
Three weeks from now that list is going to increase.
>Implying Serena can't transition into a battle easily
>Even deciding of dancing with Clemont over Ash
>still can't explain why no one is watching the battle
>implying Millefeui doesn't want to help Serena out to be a more worthy rival.
>implying transitioning has anything to do with her going for one thing but gets involved with another
>implying Clemont wasn't chosen just so Eevee can dance like it wants to
>trying to bring something that isn't part of the point just to bait
>implying even then she'd still give up her spot as Ash's partner
Stop this shit already.
Just state the fucking facts
1. Yes, Serena is going to dance with Clemont
2. Yes, Millefeui is going to dance with Ash
3. Yes, Serena and Ash are going to combat against Miette and other pleb.
TR may just be ultimate jobbers but they can be very competent. Pic related
Ash feels the pain from Greninja when he got hit. so he grabs his crotch. Greninja feels the sensation.
>Gets hit in shoulder
You're really getting desperate like the other guy said, aren't you?
To test it out.
>it now hits you that Ash-Greninja will be feeling everything Ash and Serena do
>it now hits you that Gouguru will go with off-screen Greninja and Braixen porking
>Ash and Serena dancing takes up 90% of the posts in this thread.
Let's get a better topic, such as who is your favourite Tripokalonfu? Pic related.
>stalebaiter is the Swannafag
Nami, of course. Tripokalonfus all suffer at the mercy of plot armor to Serena and main girl co.
>majority of it stalebaiter trying his shit again
That aside, at least be happy she shows up for a dance.
Until she gets upstaged by Ducklett girl having her Ducklett evolve into Swanna.
why do you people even follow these people
The PKMNcoordinator tumblr is pretty entertaining, if only because Lu has a good sense of humor and isn't all "social justice" and stuff.:
Tumblr has a weird sense of social justice warriors, fankids, bring up sexualities of the characters, and talking about extremely obscure things nobody would ever care about.
I'm not the stalebaiter. My goal was for a string of posts not focused on Amour and the dance. At least it worked for a few minutes.
Stalebaiter is a faggot, his taste is inevitably going to be shit. Nobody with shit taste could be a Swannafag.
If it makes you fell better I'm Luisafag. Excluding last night when I came to talk about Blanche and Armelle, this is my first time back in several weeks. Here's a picture I haven't posted before to prove my identity.
Yes and no, the new year's special needs to be subbed. Movie too but hopefully the bluray has Japanese subtitles already on it so all Sushi and adamant needs to do is translate directly from those instead of transcribing all the dialogue or looking elsewhere for closer captions
well thread has gone to shit. see you all in a few.
>>pedophilic 30 yr old obsessed with sucking on 10 yr old girls' boobs
I don't want to defend the guy, but this is kinda common and even accepted around here. Just open /vp/catalog for a few.
>BBWWWAAAAAAA a girl has to be tomboyish and decisive because otherwise I cannot self-insert into a cute girl that has a different focus and backstory
It's almost like every person is different. The simple fact that this person makes a complete mention about Shouta being a "great addition" makes it clear that this person is only looking for shows that reverse the duality of the stereotypical shounen codes of "weak and undecisive girl/strong and skillful boy". It just fucking reeks of SJW.
Megazard Y is going to be Alan's post redemption and he's going to use it for his rematch against Siebold to close out his story on a good note. ME1 had him lose against Siebold using a borrowed power from an evil organization after all. His last battle will be him winning.
Have a new year's game and Clemont getting his card drawn.
The Wulfric battle is going to be fucking brutal
Ash will get PTSD from it
>Wulfric gets swept by Bravest Ballerina doing Chokyu Ha'ou Denidan
You know, it's like fucking clockwork that there's two stale baiters and one happens to shitpost with Pepe at the same time every day. Now comes the part where he replies to me with shitposting and bait.
So my laptop was kill and I just bought a new one, but still working on this and for the ones who are interested, sorry for the delay
I might draw a lewd after
Same time every day and using an iPhone to avoid a ban. Not to mention he started posting outside the thread as well.
Draw Green Maki showing off her navel and doing the heart sign. Nevermind the colors.
Satomi a pure, though. She'd win without the need to whore herself out.
SCIENCE bringing Satomi and Clemont together for a slowdance when?
Now that I see it, >>24964913 is also missing Solrock Girl
AKA Best Magical Girl lookalike
Yes it is. It was shown right before the real preview showed up, when they talked about greninja. There were also some new scenes in the beginning of the special with an edgy zoom in on Alain that was not in the SOFCJ RAW.
>everyone forgets Lily's name
She's not even my waifu but man that's depressing.
Manon a cute
Alain better repair her smile.
Or maybe she'll repair his :__;
>he tries fixing her smile by causing two blonde girls to lose their smile
>one loses hers because the guy she loves ends up getting injured by his hand through battle and the younger one loses hers because he steals her green creature
>instead of fixing her smile he makes shatters Manon's when the truth of him destroying two smiles comes out
Would Manon find it in her heart to forgive and accept Alain? Even if she finds out of all the horrible deeds he's done and smiles he's broken in his misguided quest for strength?
Once Ash breaks those messed up illusions of his.
There are many better looking girls for Ash now that Serena cut her hair.
A lot of it. More so with how she stayed airborne the whole time.
>thinking it'll end through violence
>implying Ash won't talk through to Alain
>implying it won't end up like that scene from
Good Will Hunting
Lily's purpose that episode was just to a throw-in character on the screen to ensure the theme round had 3 people. She'll probably have a similar purpose later, to just be there for the sake of being thede
>not through Talk no Jutsu
>she's there so Millefeui can steal her guy at the end while Ash and Serena are doing their own thing
How the hell is the English dub going to top its current opening for XY&Z?
It's going to be pretty hard to top BE A HERO
Anons don't expect great things from xy z 12. We have been here long enough to see our expectations crushed. IT will be your typical spaghetti episode which will be ultimately be about the sylveon evolution and not amour. Yeah there will be teasing and spaghetti but nothing that will actually cement amour. We have gone through tis drill many times. I hope I am wrong but the writers of this show are too scared to do anything seriously and I don;t blame them. It's jusst a bunch of 10 year old kids in a kids show. Anons please lower your ecpectations. Nothing out of this world will happen. I remember when the "date" episode came out. Those wounds still haven't healed lol. Jk but seriously any real amour episode will actually revolve around Ash and Serena's relationship and the episode title would indicate it. I'm not doubting it will be a fun episode but please don't hype it up to be the episode that will settle it all.
>Ash and Serena in the title
>date episode actually delivered
What are you even talking about?
Oh shit, I forgot CoroCoro leaks will be appearing soon.
You're replying to the very same shitposter.
Wow, Squishy fucked up badly.
I think Ash is getting a Swirlix. I have seen it pop in recent merchadising like pic related.
what, did she slept there until Z1 came back or something?
Daily reminder that TR committed murder.
also dat deep WOLOLOLOLO
So how do you imagine Yuki Kaji saying its cry? Especially that high pitched reverbing WOLOLOLOLO
POKÉMON NO UCHI ATSUMARU? EPISODE 14 (Jan 10th)
>A Tournament Battle in Pokkén is Held at Pokénchi, with Hyadain, Abareru-kun, Kayo Satoh and the Mysterious Masked Man 'Masked Tous' Competing Against Each Other!
Also, Rica and Sako confirmed to appear in episode 15
Celosia is making my dick hard.
Pikachu and Slurpuff were also seen dancing together weren't they...?
>post yfw "You and your Pikachu should take responsibility Satoshi"
Well, everybody and their mothers have already commented on this episode but I would like to chime in with my thoughts as well.
>yfw a super villainous team like Team Flare are still affected by traffic
>yfw Celosia has been waiting near the cave on her own with no back up for god knows what
I bet she got punished for letting kids shit on her from before.
Why is a bat meowing?
Best fucking onii-chan. What the fuck are you doing Clemont?
He can't keep getting away with it.
I really hope we see these girls without their goggles. You know, when they have been defeated and look pitiful.
That fucking despair.
THERE HE GOES AGAIN!
Not a moment fucking wasted. I can't wait for it to evolve.
>this will be the only time that a ceiling Stone Edge will ever be featured.
It's as if Celosia is negotiating with them.
>Finally say what organization you are working for.
Heh, nice banter.
>Ash and his Pokemon protecting Bonnie
>meanwhile, her own onii-chan is way over to the side.
God fucking dammit, Clemont.
He won't get a Slurpuff. It's simply retarded. Both from a marketing perspective and the fact that his rival already has its evolution.
He would barely be able to use it. It's not like using a Corpish or a Buizel.
Dammit, why is this girl so good? Also, I just realized Dedenne is pretty much absent throughout the entire struggle.
That's what you get for only bringing Fire, Steel, and Poison types against a Ground legendary. Never knew how ridiculously ill suited Team Flare is for this task.
You can actually pinpoint the exact moment where her heart is broken.
>Greninja and Pikachu are faster on the
Well, that's one of the few times or THE first time Pikachu missed an opponent while using Iron Tail in Kalos
>taunting despite their mission being a complete failure, them being outnumbered, all of their grunts and mons out of commission, and the fact that Puni-chan can still rekt them even if they caught up to it because of the terrible choice of mons (Manetric)
Despite putting Ash on the ropes (since he was the one doing all the hard work), Team Flare had their work cut out for them.
You know, with all this synchro thing, I really hope they pull out all the stops and make it so that Ash is so in sync that he don't need to issue commands anymore, as if he really was Greninja.
See? I hope it comes true.
>there are grunts probably on standby in the forest for Puni-chan
Maybe that's why we have Purple and Green in the next episode.
So it begins.
Everytime he orders cut is too intense.
I love Ash's thinking look here and everybody is gathered around. It really feels like he's the leader and is conveying a meeting with them.
Little shit finally came out when all the action is over.
>comic reliefs conveniently disappear when shit is about to go down
Serena sounds too high-pitched and excitable here.
This episode and the fact that Bonnie's sings a slower version of this to Puni-chan as a lullabye in the show proper gives this song a whole other dimension, a sad one.
Hopefully, the slow version is also part of this insert song collection.
>yfw Ash and Diantha meet again
>yfw Diantha compliments Ash for being so sync with his Pokemon that he doesn't need to issue commands
>yfw Diantha reveals the great potential Ash has because she and Gardevoir took years to develop such synchronicity while he and Greninja only became one in such a short time
Episode where Ash is lost and Greninja finds him through the power of
lovesimilar to that even where DIantha got lost when?
Corocoro doesn't cover Pokken at all, that game has always been promoted in Famitsu instead.
Corocoro had some anime stuff lately because all the new Zygarde stuff going on there is the only core franchise shit happening now period, but now that there's a movie to promote, I assume focus will shift to that.
>Lysandre and Malva become good people after the team flare arc
>Alan goes back to challenging trainers with mega pokemon because he still wants to be the best mega trainer
>Malva, knowing how strong Alan is makes the arrangements necessary for alan to have official battles against the E4 without the need of winning the league
>Alan challenges the E4 while Ash competes in the league
>Ash wins the league and proceeds to challenge the E4
>After beating them Ash walks into the champion room
>the champion is Alan
Dark days are over, anon. No more "blind squirrel" shit from Oak, no more "lel you use your instincts more than your head" from Brock, no more "yer such a kid" from Iris, just Ash being wise, practical, and reliable but still retain his impulsiveness and stubbornness. Meanwhile, Clemont is there to fill the booksmart and technical stuff quota.
honestly my favourite part about xy ash is how they explain his thought process in what he does, especially in gym battles. He still thinks on the fly, but at least we understand half of what's he's doing, like using attacks over and over again
his gym battle with olympia fucking blew me away, especially with how he told pikachu to use it's tail to check for the timing of future sight. That was really something else, and I wouldn't have expected it from any other ash aside from DP Ash
Ash would make a pretty creative villain.
Yes. If it's going to be Alain's redemption or whatever fanfiction garbage /padt/ is thinking of, then it wouldn't be featured in promos alongside Mega Charizard X so early now would it. That would mean Alan would be beaten for good around episode 30, and that the Team Flare arc will be short as hell.
Remember when Alain beat Shauna's Mega Venusaur in Act IV or how he lost to Tierno in Act I. Not a question because none of that shit happens.
Same for me. This place sucks but I'm trapped here.
I blame /a/, over the years I have been ready to leave this shithole several times but everytime I say to myself "I'm going to /a/ to say goodbye" and then the first fucking post I see there reminds me why I'm here on first place.
>serena has this slim chance that she might follow ash to the next region depending on whether the writers thought it was successful to attract viewers
>i might never get off this wild ride
