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...
Kisaramoon, shouldn't you be working on putting out your next chapter.
Ash and his friends are (taking a break/ eating lunch, walking down a path to the next gym) when (traveling companion) sees
something coming towards them. They go check it out and it turns out it is a Pokemon they have never seen before! The Pokemon
looks up at them and (gets scared, takes a liking to one of them), when they are then met up with a (girl/ boy) who claims
they "know" that Pokemon because their (mother/ father) works with it. They take them back to their (farm/ house) where the
parents tell Ash and his friends the story of the legend of the Pokemon they met and how it balances nature, and how they
need to get it back home. But some edgy villan wants to get their hands on it to control (Pokemon/ the world) but Ash ans his
friends fight them. The villan uses machines to control legendary Pokemon and Ash suddenly uses the power of (friendship/ trust/ faith)
to power his Pokemon and win, witht he help of the legendary Pokemon they met. With villain defeated Pokemon it (returned home/ sets out to find a new life)
Ash says they will meet the kid and parents again (soon/ someday) and continue on with his journey.
>Pokémon no uchi atsumaru? episode 15:

>Tomohisa Sako once again visits Pokénchi! Sako is a huge fan of Tyltalis, so Abareru-kun tries turning into not a Tyltalis, but an Abatalis! However, there's a huge secret to Abatalis... Also, Satoshi's voice actress Rica Matsumoto drops by as well! Everyone gets realy excited over singing "XY&Z" together! Finally, the Pokémon battle is a high-level showdown between Hyadain and Sako!
>Guests: Tomohisa Sako, Rica Matsumoto
>Serena is irredeemable a piece of shit
She is shit compared to her long hair self.
>Misty is the best girl (with Dawn behind)
Dawn is the best with May close behind, Misty is somewhere in the middle.
I was wondering what I was missing from XY with XY&Z and it just occured to me.
She looks so sad
this thread is lacking BonniexMeowth pics
what the fuck is wrong with you faggots
Why didn't Meowth protect Bonnie's smile?
>Honestly any girl who cuts her hair because shes a drama queen trying to get the attention of her crush and those who like them should be dragged out in the streets and shot.
Manipulated to constantly battle and barely get to know his opponents. Manipulated that the man he looks up to is in danger, and is forced to keep it a secret from him. The only person that has gotten to know him puts herself in mortal danger because of the dangerous shit he is into, and blaming himself for it by believing he isn't strong enough.
It's a vicious cycle.
-He's a young impressionable kid who met a charismatic and manipulative man at the start of his journey
-Said man kicked his ass, told him he's weak and ingrained into him the unfeasible idea of being strong enough to handle any problem by himself without involving any of his loved ones
-This ideal causes him to push away anyone who can correct his mistaken notion
-This ideal also causes him to continuously battle strong opponents that he's not ready for which often leads to his defeat
-Each defeat only strengthens his notion that he's not strong enough so he keeps fighting, growing stronger until he wins, finding a stronger opponent after winning, losing to that new opponent and repeating the vicious cycle
-Now he's so caught up in the cycle that he's snowballing into a crazy battlehungry person who will eventually forget why he started fighting in the first place which makes him a convenient attack dog for the charismatic and manipulative man
Goddamn, Lysandre is a bastard. And he's right in that he never lied:
>"If you want to fulfill your wish, become the strongest."
Alan does need strenght to protect his loved ones, he just doesn't need to do it alone.
>"Bad people will sully the professor's name if you let him know about our research."
Team Rocket would definitely put Sycamore in further danger, and so would Lysandre himself.
>"We need to establish the Mega Evolution energy system to save Hari-san."
Controlling Zygarde would mean having the power to save Hari-san, but also destroy Kalos.
Because of the XYZ special, yet pokemon still owes naruto one slot
I would prefer a Musavi instead
He was just faking being braindead because unova was piss easy compared to sinnoh
>missing out on dancing with your crush because you are a shit trainer that hasn't fixed its pokemon's problem even though it is clear pokemon and trainer want to better the issue and instead of pushing it towards a better self like her so called inspiration did with goomy, noibat and hawlucha she prefers to give in to her pokemon's shyness and ruin her once-in-a-season chance
I wonder how he'll bullshit Alain into believing that Zygarde could help him.
>oh the energy signatures of Zygarde is similar to that is affecting your friend's Chespin. Better get to helping us capture.
Funny how Alain has never questioned Lysandre ever. Guess, he blames himself for being weak than think how exactly Hari-san got greened up in Lysandre's own institute.
Surely just once couldn't hurt, right?
>been redownloading the Gym battles
>know the outcome and the famous "two Leader Pokemon quickly down, the last one knocks out 2 of Satoshi's Pokémon to even out the last battle"
>yet still excited with Satoshi's strategy, battle analysis and combo ability.
>also direction, animation and choregraphy porn
This is absolutely disgustingly shit writing. I don't really care about shipping in Pokemon, but this just seems cheap and as bad as the kind of thing you'd expect in shitty so-called "harem" series. And the worst part is they used Eevee for it.
and it actually happened before a few times, people coloring my lineart and uploading on their sites, I don't mind
reminds me of this
what happened to the guy who did this?
Well, never happened to me before that someone took the credit for my drawings. They colored it and credit me as the lineart artist. I'm most interested now in lineart and oil digital painting, so that Serena was meant to be a lineart only, but that coloring was amazing and the anon was based enough to not remove my watermark, what can I said anon, not all heros wear capes.
I liked this one, anon making the lineart, me coloring them and some other anon making the background. Great collab in padt.
Why do Misty fans always place Dawn second behind Misty? I work under the theory that its because May "replaced Misty" that they can't ever accept her, so they accept Dawn because she didn't directly come after Misty.
I honestly remember back in 2007-2008 a lot of Misty fans "pretending" to like Dawn on the forums simply because they saw her as their revenge on May for replacing Misty.
What a bunch of lunatics.
I still have the feeling we are gonna get shitload of dull fillers before ash manages reach to kalos league
So I was rewatching the New Year Special and realized something interesting.
Note how the entire special is focused around summarizing relevant shit only. They recap episode 1 and 9 of XY&Z nearly in their entirety, showing all the important Squishy/Flare bits, but skip over not-too-important shit like Sycamore meeting Squishy and starting to research it. They show the key parts of Greninja's story, but skip all the ninja village legend stuff since it's all mostly fluff. Olympia gets a quick intro just to frame shit. Likewise, they give Shota a quick introduction seemingly just as framework for how the group learns about Terminus Cave.
However... while them spending a lot of time going over Alan's backstory makes sense due to his part in the story, a LOT of time is seemingly unnecessarily spent on detailing Steven's role in all this. This could have easily been cut around, as the only really important parts of Act 2 and 3 is that Lysandre ended up with the megalith, as well as the flashback detailing his history with Alan, and Steven doesn't play much of a role in Act 4.
Instead they spent a lot of time detailing who Steven is, what he did and what he knows. It all heavily suggests Steven is going to play a major role in XY&Z and the Zygarde story.
We've seen a clip of the next Tripokalon in the New Year Special. Tripokalons Serena takes part in never take place in anime-original filler towns, meaning that's the Snowbelle Tripokalon. Ash's gym battles are always next to Tripokalons in towns with gyms.
So then Serena's last tripokalon and Ash's last Gym coming up soon, good.
All that's left then is Master Class (which I'm guessing won't be more than 2 episodes), the league and the resolution of the Team Flare plot.
But there was no need for Clemont and Serena to dance. They could have done it ANY other way. This whole set-up was nothing but a way from them to screw with the romance crap because I'm sure even the writers know Serena/Clemont dancing and Ash/Millefeui is stupid.
And a 99% chance is not a 100% chance. And if they don't dance, it would even drive the above point further home. Right now most people are still "hoping" Ash and Serena dance.
It won't for sure. After Alain and Sawyer battle we will get the depression arc for Ash and Greninja. They won't do the last gym mid into the arc.
The movie is implying that TF arc will last until July, so yeah it will be DP gym 7 -> 8 all over again.
Maybe it goes down like this:
First TF arc
>Before the league
>Alan is still a part of TF
>Lysandre just want the ME energy, the Megalith and Zygarde to conquer Kalos
>He is defeated but escapes
>Alan is redeemed after being defeated
Second TF arc
>After the league
>Alan is against the TF now
>Lysandre went off the deep end after his defeat
>He now wants to fucking destroy everything
Or it could be an Elite Four arc. Or even better: both.
Those soft and smooth bare shoulders of hers
They're not doing it like the games where TF ends between gyms 7 and 8. Heck, they've started TF after gym 7 and with the Terminus Cave and Couriway behind, they're already well after the point where their plot ends in the games. Wulfric in the OP is obviously footage that will be replaced by something else later on with the same OP still going, so no 52-episode gap after which the OP would get replaced entirely. Most importantly, there's the point about Serena's Snowbelle Tripokalon already being seen. TF will last after the eighth gym, the gang will go back to Lumiose, the climax will take place and then the league happens in September/October.
It won't be. DP's gap was a whole fucking year. Wulfric is in the current OP even, and if the league is confirmed to occur in 2016 then gym 8 will be done well before we hit a one year gap.
And there's no law prohibiting them from having the eighth gym in the middle of the arc anyways especially if Serena has her Tripokalons in the midst of it, AND the gang has to go all the fucking way back to Lumiose City to continue the TF plot
Maybe the gap is seven months or so, but not a whole fucking year.
The funny thing is she's not even the most insane Pokeshipper. There are people far worse than she is, who still think they're on some epic crusade to get Misty back in the anime.
Weedle still posts at Pokecommunity. He still thinks he's on a "boycott" to get Misty back.
Hardcore denial. Remember the fallout from when nardo sank ships? It'd be worse than that because these people never had a doubt that Misty was a sure win because of 4kids. Having that thrown down the drain would make them enter a kisarasmoon like state where they deny xy is canon
Its also because of the sheer mass in time the anime has been running. They've waited 13 years of their lives since Misty's departure in 2002 for some sort of comeback for her and Pokeshipping, they literally spent more than half their lives crying over it.
>dance episode ends with Ash and Serena dancing
with a focus on their hand-holding with intertwined fingers
OK. In the summary for XY&Z13, it says "Ash and his friends reunite with the enthusiastic boy Shota." It should either read "Ash.... Sawyer" or "Satoshi... Shota" in my opinion. Honestly, they should all be Japanese names since the post before that has all all Japanese names (i.e. NEXT: POCKET MONSTERS XY&Z10: EUREKA AND SQUISHY!)
Pretty sure the extreme majority of people visiting these threads barely even remember Shota HAS a different name in the dub.
The summary is copypasted from how Adamant wrote it on Serebii anyway.
>he isn't consenting to Slurpuff because he's being dragged around
But pikachu doesn't like girls
>not knowing /padt/ style
It depends WHERE the summary comes from. That Bonnie/Squishy one came from the official Japanese source, so all Japanese names consistent with howPM subs things
For other summaries, which may originate in Serebii first via magazine scans and such, we copy paste them here. Those summaries Adamant puts on Serebii use English names for game characters only. Anime only characters like Shota keep their Japanese names in those summaries.
Now i'm curious how their child would look
>sexualizing the Pikachu
Here I made it better
of course it's ugly it's a fast sketch with a mouse
She gets to be reminded of it every time she walks through the door.
Tell me about Pikachu, why does he wear the ribbon?
>Bravest Ballerina not the first choice
The fuck is xer?
Too bad the battle was interrupted for some bullshit reason
>she'll never come back
But anon, she is currently stalking ash and serena
>that one episode where the gang visits her family's home
>that line at the end where her parents are joking about marriage
>tfw she'll never tell Ash
Real talk, that whole camp arc was pretty fun. Then they had to throw in that crush in the last episode and toy with my heart.
> Serena, Dawn and Millefeui
But the top 3 are Dawn, May and Serena.
Keep saying that to yourself, delusional fool.
Why Dedenne isn't Umaru's pokemon?
>barely fucking ANY new footage in the Pokenchi preview
Pretty much, but good time to ask the question again... who will protect her smile, /vp/?
Who knows, but unless someone gives us raws for Pokenchi, we're kinda stuck with this for now. The watermark on this video isn't as bad since it's a small little Pikachu at the bottom right.
>Also, Satoshi's voice actress Rica Matsumoto drops by as well! Everyone gets really excited over singing "XY&Z" together!
>2 breaks in a row
>then an alright episode
>then a shitty noibat filler episode
>then a shitty eevee episode
>a combination of XY59, XY64, and XY80
Well okay then.
tfw Tierno shitposter and one or two other faggots keep bullying the Noibat
Lets be honest, the omode trilogy was mostly meh, because all the episodes were focused on eevee.
Just hope things don't get screwed again
Because she isn't a retarded beta fuck like serena
Bonnie please, you're head's still rattled.
Yes, it says "Favorites" but it's supposed to say "Likes" and there's a bunch of other stuff that doesn't match the current tweet format
It must be a sad existence if you're still trying to bait when they'll end up dancing together in the end. I think this is the part where you say Serena falls in love with Clemont.
Neither, pikachu would prefer males anyways
Exactly, they didn't HAVE to have Serena and Clemont dance. Serena dancing with Clemont before Ash shouldn't have happened at given the have ZERO development together. This Eevee/Bunnelby thing was just a way for the writers to put them in a romantic situation.
No, Chuckles, that comment was made because it's literally the same guy that keeps trying to bait using the whole "Ash and Serena won't dance", "Amour is being written off" and "they're putting Serena and Clemont in a romance" like he is >>24975339.
Everything else is just pointing to Ash and Serena getting the dance at the end.
And it's just bad. It's disgusting how they dragged Eevee into this shit making him straight up autistic when he has a bad enough reputation among hipster faggots as is.
I honestly feel bad for the not retarded shippers having to deal with this shit.
>was right about "who will Ash be partnered with" meaning Ash and Serena wouldn't dance
>was right about the Eevee/Bunnelby thing leading to stuff between Ash/Serena
>going to be right about Ash and Serena not dancing
>Not knowing the Poke Queen of S&M
You might as well have lived your entire life with your eyes closed until now.
I obviously meant Clemont/Serena.
But keep living in that fantasy land. In what universe is having Serena and Clemont's first real meaningful interaction a ballroom dance together? A universe that trying to force a relationship late into the series.
Eevee's just scared of shit. It has nothing to do with Serena and Clemont being in a romantic situation when Serena's literally only dancing with him so she can use Bunnelby for Eevee's sake.
Which could lead Millefeui bringing up the topic of Serena being with Clemont causing spaghetti. If you think she won't tease Serena about picking Clemont over Ash you don't watch the show.
How do you think the Team Rocket Gang felt about their alternate universe superhero selves, especially since it's implied that they worked together to get the TRio back to their right dimension.
Well since this specific type of trolling shippers a la "Amour is about to die due to a BS reason that changes every two weeks and be replaced by Serena and Clemont" has gone on for a year now and 10 hours a day by one or two spamming pieces of shit, of course you don't think it's baiting/shitposting
But hey you're the newfag who's getting triggered by being called out so I have no sympathy for you
>Why do you think I even pointed out how atrocious this contrived bullshit is in the first place? They could very well asspull this kind of thing for whatever stupid reason.
I'm honestly feeling like I'm being baited here.
Looks like the little newfag is butthurt about being called out.
Hey, psst. I've got a great way to remedy that
>Please, spoonfeed me and I'll stop baiting!
No. If you went ahead and just looked around or asked without being an entitled prick, then you'd realise most (if not all) of the answers to whatever shit's coming out of your mouth would come eventually.
Time to learn how to 4chan the hard way, fag.
Except you literally fucking can't just because you have a title, a fucking summary that says why such things are even occurring, and even shots that end up showing Ash and Serena together during a battle.
The only person that's even trying to push it is the same shitposter that's been baiting the same shit for the last year and a half.
This is wishful thinking. This entire premise stinks of trying to force a Clemont/Serena dynamic by jumping straight to dancing together
Something Ash hasn't even done with her yet.
>title is literally "Ash and Serena"
>Serena is only dancing with Clemont for her Eevee, who's also evolving in the very same episode
>Millefeui gets pulled into it all and starts commenting about her dancing with Ash
>Ash and Serena are shown together battling Millefeui after
>trying to force Clemont/Serena
>calling it wishful thinking
You're either pretending or you're seriously baiting me here.
>yfw they watch the sunset together
>Bonnie ends up sitting on Clemont's lap and snuggling into his chest
But anon, what's so sexual about a brother and sister showing love for each other?
Reminder that there's nothing wrong about an imouto loving her onii-chan...a little too much.
>Not knowing where you are
Welcome to 4chan.
>You are not special.
Those same words apply to you.
Had you not noticed, this "retarded speshul snowflake tier shit" is true not only of the anime general. If I go into the WiFi General, Showderp, TCG General, Fanfic Thread, CYOA Threads, etc. and post retardedly without prior knowledge of their standards/culture and ebin memes, I fully deserve to be called a newfag. I most definitely wouldn't bitch about it because it's how the way things work in here; I especially wouldn't call the thread in question's regulars faggots, and act like an entitled shithead like you are just because I've been called out on honest inexperience.
You've wasted a lot of our time in initiating this shitty tirade; If you've really nothing else to do here but whine about how this thread doesn't want to cater to you special needs, then proceed to be a colossal faggot about it who thinks he's in the right, take the advice:
lurk moar or fuck offerino.
Look, anon, I'm on your side, but you didn't need to write this wall of text to try to change that shitter's mind after things have already been calm for the last 20 minutes or so. Let's just move on.
Is this picture cabon or does Dawn go around freevagin'?
Money says he comes back with something new.
I'm actually suspecting that other spoilering anon earlier might have been right. And no, I wasn't the one that did wallotext.jpg.png.gif.txt.
bunnelby had no reason to fall, he simply jumped off the cliff
>Bunnelby is so tired of everyone's shit he actually jumps
They're not the same person, idiot. Drop it.
Because otherwise they'd get too distracted by what's in front of them to run.
female staff was bored that day.
Well? How about it, /vp/?
How would Ash and co. encounter Porygon2 or Porygon-Z?
>not giving attention to the shitposters
