>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 15 (Jan 17th)
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...
Still need to see how Orange and Blue does before we can determine who truly best Flare Girl is.
>taunting when they have the clear disadvantage
They have the inner baka in them.
Inner baka is nothing when you are Ash and you have the power of "ai" on your side.
Not at all, they actually stayed their hand pretty much during the entire cave confrontation, warning them to stay back with attacks, likely underestimating them.
But now that they have been marked, hopefully, they won't have to hold back. Hopefully, Celosia and Bryony actually do appear in the next episode, and not just in a flashback so we can get some insight on what they think after getting rekt in the cave.
>now that they have been marked
>marked by a group of Pokemon gangsters who wield ray guns
Who cares, stop giving them attention.
>not posting a screen from the raws
So which aside BW, which other saga would be considered the worst o the entire anime?
Also ash is strangely smug in XY when he gets the upper hand
Is she likely to be out for very long?
Bonnie covers up that department
Do you think he would be smug during the league?
I still can't believe its been almost 10 years since sinnoh came out.
>implying he won't act like a submissive, humble pie during the League so people underestimate him
>implying he won't pull out the smug once he maims people left and right in the tournament for underestimating him
XY Ash runs on broken hopes and dreams.
Some people get triggered by Darkrai coming back, calling it a copout and an asspull. I disagree. Darkrai fades away the same way the rest of the town does, so it stands to reason that it would be restored when Palkia fixes the damage it did.
How would you restore her smile? Alan is not available to help you.
There is something i want to do, but i wanna make sure how do their eyes look first
Clemont is the guy you go to when you want shit blown up, not fixed/protected.
Megalith is the power source of the Ultimate Weapon, when they destroy it they would need an alternative.
>yfw they fire the weapon's beam on a satellite to redirect its power toward the sundial to do some crazy shit
Anon, pls. Ash has fought alongside and against legendaries, saved the world multiple times, and done more things that other trainers would only dream of doing. What better way to honor Ash than with this Pokemon of lore?
Manon doesn't want to build shit. She wants to mega evolve shit
He didn't even protect it last episode. So much for onii-chan.
She needs a catalyst for that.
Question is, what? Or better yet,
Why not Charizard?
>inb4 he was already promoted too much
She might have only been written as a minor character for those last few weeks of the XY series.
Though I really DO want her to return. She was lewd as fuck.
>stood at the sidelines and merely watched while Ash protected his little sister
>didn't even attempt to fix Bonnie's smile once they were out of the cave
It sounds like Clemont needs protecting as well.
Dunno what you're talking about; I got this from Pixiv.
>Ash and Serena are left alone without Clemont or Bonnie in the way
Thinking about it. Siebold has his own fucking coliseum in the back of his restaurant. Do you think Malva has some goddamn private bondage volcano on her own when she's no flirting with Lysandre?
WHERE THE FUCK IS DRASNA?
Is that Kotoura-Chan? You have good taste, sir.
Good night, guys. Just do your job and all will be just fine.
>flirting with Lysandre
>forgetting that she was lusting after Alan
Why, thank you sir. She's quite lovely.
And she's got good company, perhaps a tad too good for her.
I hope he gets punchdrunk syndrome in time for the league.
>not knowing that the only people Pikachu would have a threesome with is Serenas Sylveon and Millefeui's Slurpuff
Doesn't help the new outfit was chosen by the dominant female staff
On the bright side serena's serenas are still there. Unlike may
>Being this salty
Why can't Manon dress like a girl every now and then? She looks good like this.
>Kid not dressing like a kid
oh god that picture quality came out horrible
let's try this one
Why isn't flying not very effective against Dragon?
our thread is either dead or shitposted half the time so there'd be no difference
>threads on /co/ are so heavily moderated that a single off-topic post can be deleted in less than 30 seconds
>/padt/ gets raped for hours with no end in sight
I beg to differ. Please develop better taste.
>implying Satoshi wouldn't do the same for any friend of his
This nigga would jump into an active volcano to save one of his friends. Serena just hasn't put herself into a very dangerous situation just yet. The day it will happen, Satoshi will jump after her just the same.
Now stop shitposting, anon, it's time for you to go to bed.
>implying Satoshi wouldn't do the same for any friend of his
What about when both Serena and Clemont dell and Ash didn't bother with either?
>blaming Clemont for Ash's disinterest in helping Serena
Bonnie is convinced punichan cares. That alone is enough for me to think the end of next episode will be precious
Maybe punichan will really start to appreciate Bonnie as it sees how much she cares for it
So what you are saying is that Ash wanted Serena and Clemont dead so he could keep the Bonnie?
Oh of course not, there's no way a paranoid spastic bitching about frogposting could be from /padt/ of all threads!
Again, fuck off, nobody wants you. There's a reason you have a containment thread on a containment board.
What are some themes you'd wish they'd bring back for the XY anime?
Imagine one of these themes (or a remix) playing during the Kalos League:
Can't recall. Sorry anon have gender bendt Clemont as an apology.
It's a rendition of one of the Route songs from the original R/B/Y games
They put a unique recording of it on most movie soundtracks, it's called something like "Satoshi from Masara Town" or "This Boy Satoshi..."
This one always brings up some nostalgia.
Also, more of this theme when the gang battle team flare
It's a shame that there aren't better quality rips of it out there, the one that other anon linked isn't very good quality.
I remember at one point CGO said there's something weird about that song that makes it so that percussion gets taken out when you remove out the noises, so it ends up sounding shitty
Eh Ash using strategy ain't anything too new, he's been using decent strategy since AG
I just think the writers are more careful about how the battles are written and making sure that Ash is strategizing in a way that is believable and smart
The Citron vs. Satoshi battle was a perfection of sakuga and music coordination.
>that moment when the music vs. legendary started as Rentorar bit off Pikachu's Thunderbolt effortlessly
I remmber him telling something like that but wasn't that for the vs Yveltal/Xerneas theme?
But yea, the rips that exists are shitty af. The only good part is the 3 first seconds, the rest just sounds off.
I know it isn't anything new, after all, countershield was a huge part of his plan in sinnoh
it's just that, the way he battles now is so good. The olympia battle for example, was handled a lot better than tate/liza imo. I did feel that frogadier and talonflame took a few too many hits though
You were looking for me?
>at one point CGO said there's something weird about that song that makes it so that percussion gets taken out when you remove out the noises
Yes, that's true. If I'm able to find a workaround I'll let you all know, but no promises.
As another anon pointed out, it's basically a remix of Route 4 from the original Kanto games: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TU3wEquqpcE
I've got normie shit to do, guys, but I'll be back later.
Ash vs. Clemont and Ash vs. Ramos had great BGM. Definitely elevated the whole gym battle in general, so far my two favorite XY battles.
Ash vs. Olympia has great BGM too.
>I did feel that frogadier and talonflame took a few too many hits though
It was well-balanced though, everyone took a lot of punishment. The female Meowstic was hit by a (Lightscreen-protected) Flame Charge and a Brave Bird, the male by a (Lightscreen-protected) Water Pulse and a Steel Wing, both where hit by their own Psyshock + Dark Pulse, then their own Future Sight and finally another combination of Flame Charge and Water Pulse.
i guess they did need to take so many hits because it was a 18-20min battle.
It was still fucking amazing though, and Ash using pikachu to time future sight was fucking brilliant. He had every right to be so smug when he turned that future sight against them
Yea, that's what I like about the battles in the anime. It doesn't take 2 turns to take down the opponent like in the games.
Also, pretty sure light screen didn't protect the female cat from flame charge the first time.
It's not just a matter of strategy, it's mostly that Pokemon have been using more than 4 abilities by the past, which could be used as a "last second save" or asspull. Here, Pokemon have 4 abilities and that's it, it's up to the trainers to use the abilities, the situation and the physics at their advantage to win. This is mainly the reason why Satoshi doesn't suck anymore. The ratio "Pokemon ability/Trainer ability" is now even, or even leaning in the trainer's favor. If Satoshi was the same as he was before, he would keep losing his matches. The new battle system required a Satoshi that would lean of what he had done so far and would always try to improve.
This is what makes the battles so great. They are less a battle of Pokemon strength (which was the battle for most situations before) and more a battle of Trainers' wits.
It looks like Talonflame just cancelled the flame charge when she saw the light screen.
>Ash actually thought he could sweep Ramos
>Ramos brings out Sweepinbell
In Alan's case, it's different. The strategy part enters into play only if the Pokemon's strength is roughly equal. Alan's Charizard is completely OP (well, that's his only after all) and is a full blown Mega whereas Gekkouga/Greninja is a "half-Mega" that still hasn't mastered the situation. The upcoming battle is a sure loss for Satoshi because the plot calls for it. However, the rematch will be interesting, I'm sure.
>I'll make a clean sweep with only this pokemon
>this was his exact same strategy against elesa
>except this time he had backup plans and didn't make a fool of himself
That's what would happen in the game. A Fire/Flying Pokemon spells instant death for a Trainer that specializes in Grass Pokemon. Luckily, the anime doesn't really happen that way.
There's no need to force anything. If the thread dies because of lack of discussion, let it die. You know you will create another one once the next episode airs. Trying to keep a thread alive by shitposting is like keeping a braindead patient alive via lifesupport.
Do you think Manon will get a mega or a jogress evolution?
Serena's picture doesn't count, it's an in between frame taken from below.
I have not seen the show since buneary wanted to be for sexual but her trainer wouldn't let her
Mega battle clips look cool should I just watch everything I missed, I really just missed ruby and sapphire and BW
I mean I skipped RS and saw some DP
(Un)lucky Gogoat. Nice closeup, but unfortunately censored...
that's what i was thinking, i think the artist forgot the cleavage unfortunately for us, the animators just copy what they see in the original design
If only such things showed a bit more often
I could give a shot, but i'm bit busy right now
>Charizard can mega evolve, but I'e parted ways with it. It is no more.
>But I'll go on with my life together with Greninja, the two of us having mega evolved and become one!!
I think it's a reference to SOMETHING
Serena might be cute and everything, but May will always be my top girl
>Still no tripokalon episode with serena wearing the majorette outfit
Unless she uses it on the master class, but i'm starting to lose hope
Bonnie porn scene remember?
So using this translation of the original line:
>My Bro is dead, HE'S GONE! But he's right there on my back, and here in my heart! HE LIVES ON AS A PART OF ME!!
Then the translation here is:
>My Charizard, which could mega evolve, is left behind, IT'S GONE! But with the help of me and Greninja, it mega evolved! IT LIVES ON AS A PART OF ME!!
I think I got it here.
Oh yeah, that was a good day, lotsa rage from the puritans
would Ash calling Millefeui cute make Serena snap at him? webm semi-related
>instead of just separating Serena from the gang at the end of gen 6, they literally just kill her off
At this rate, feels more like two different characters
>Team Flare attacks Lumiose City
>Serena is brainwashed by Xerosic and turned into Essentia, making her an enemy to Ash
>Ash manages to fight TF off, but his efforts cause the Prism Tower to fall with incalculable damage
>Team Flare retaliates by announcing they're going to fire the Ultimate Weapon
>Clemont is appointed chief of Lumiose City to deal with the crisis and he regretfully makes Ash take the fall due to popular outcry, sentencing him to prison
>Bonnie summons Sanpei, Tierno, Shauna, Trevor, Millefeui and various COTDs to form a liberation brigade
>they bust Ash out of prison
>Ash goes to Clemont who's trying to shoot himself with the Aipom arm and punches him in the face
>you have to be the very best in the entire country to be considered a good trainer
>in a league with over 200 trainers
>all had 8 badges
>the only one in the whole region up to that point able to wreck Tobias Darkrai
>came to the semi final
Probably responding to bait.
Sure, because everybody remembers the loser.
Tell me faggots, then why do we praise Mohammed ali, michael phelps, Tiger woods or Michael jordan and not those who lost to them?
>none of them loss
>George Foreman not remembered even though Ali beat him
>Pacman not remembered even after being tucked into bed Marquez
You're being stupid again.
>because people jump on bandwagoons
Let me guess, you were raise by people saying to you "everybody is a winner and special snowflake", right?
>none of them loss
Their victories are overwhelming against their loses, but in Ash case NO.
Seriously at a professional level Ash always manages to lose, his 20 year old record is pathetic (yeah, but muh time passes differently")
Yeah if Ash lose he is pathetic and if he wins is a Gary stu, people can't stop with the bitching.
Ali's ratio is 10:1, that's anything but overwhelming.
I mean fuck, you literally have Julio Ceasar Chavez with a 17:1 win ratio and a 87 win streak and most people forgot him already. You're just being stupid.
Yeah, I must be replying to bait. Should of known.
>Serena might be with Clemont anyway.
>still posting this bait
Don't forget: Giselle is the ONLY girl Ash has ever blushed to.
Everytime i see that picture i remember this one, why is she so perfect
>still giving them the attention they strive for
>actually implying the anime league exist in the games
You go straight to elite 4 after 8 badges dumbass
Or like this
Now with Ash dancing with Millefeui I'm expecting her to giving a kiss. Btfo all amours
Isn't there a huge problem with Ash leaving Greninja with Oak after losing the League, since it has self-actualization and wouldn't be content with being retired, yet unable to be its strongest without Ash?
Is this the last season with Ash or is he going to start the next one with Pikachu and Greninja?
Huh, today is the 16th anniversary of the day the first episode of the anime aired in my country.
I don't know how to feel about me still watching it since then with the only difference being that I switched to subs.
No m8, been here since the hype threads and I know for a fact that most people here will leave the anime. There has been hundreds if discussion on this subject and most people say the same thing.
Fuck off stale, nobody has said anything about the childhood hero shit. At least use relevant bait.
>Milfie kisses Ash on the cheek
>Serena passes out
Yeah, but a lot of them have been emofagging.
The anime is heading in a very good direction, and while these threads have been drowning in extreme, autistic career shitposting for the last half a year plus, I really do enjoy them and don't want them to end just because XY does
>implying the last 6 month
At least we don't have savior and I thank god for that.
Italy. My guess for why it took so long to start airing is because back then they used to air a new episode every day from Monday to Friday, so they caught up very quickly. Heck, before switching to the once-a-week format, they even cut episodes up in multiple chunks they'd air a different day each. Right now it's at the same point as the US dub though, and it airs once a week.
I'd rather have Savior than these mental patients that spend seemingly their entire free time shitting up a thread about something they don't like, and the threads were definitely more comfy back before they got multiple-times-a-day invasions, but they're still enjoyable in general, they're still the only real place you can discuss the anime, and they're still the best place for news and more in-depth details on shit going on.
I don't want to lose that.
I see what you mean but to me Savior was complete cancer to these threads. Stale is just some bad baiter with a sad life. So I just feel pity for him. Plus I have so many filters on his usual buzzwords that I barely see his posts anyway.
Just 4 days and the nightmare will end...
... for now
It's a different one, but it's not different in an overly interesting way.
>While taking a break near a forest, Ash and his friends are listening to the screams of the "Sound Wave Pokémon" Noibat. However, apparently Noibat somehow gets into a fight with the "Mushroom Pokémon" Breloom. And then other Pokémon show up as well, further confusing the situation.
Tio lucha needs more screen time as well
The problem with Ash having 3 flying types is any of them could be appropriate to use at any given time, but Hawlucha doesn't really have a niche that Talonflame or Greninja don't already fill.
I can actually kind of see Hawlucha leaving the team although I like it.
No shit, sherlock, they arrived. What's your next genius observation?
We don't need play by play commentary every time a shitposter shows up or the janitors delete some shitposts.
>implying her empty state without her friends isn't enough to be played with like a puppet for Lysandre
