NEXT: POCKET MONSTERS XY&Z12: SATOSHI AND SERENA! GETTING ONE AT A DANCE PARTY!! (JANUARY 28TH)
>Satoshi and his friends went to a dance party. There, four of the party attendants get selected to have a tag battle! And Satoshi and Serena get selected for this...!?
>Serena is practicing in order to get her third Princess Key. At that point, she receives an invitation to a dance party for Pokémon performers. The rule for the party is that performers and Pokémon both pair up one male and one female, so Serena participates together with Eievui, Citron and Horubee. But when they reunite with Millefeui in front of the party grounds, she suddenly asks Satoshi to pair up with and participate with her!?

POKÉMON NO UCHI ATSUMARU? EPISODE 16 (Jan 24th)
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...
>tfw amour is happening
It feels oh so fucking good
Does Goomy still count?
I hope I'm wrong here, but I'm suspecting that Serena's explosive shock and the slowed down/fading frames in the preview are signs that Serena's about to dance with Ash when the dance abruptly ends (resulting in Serena's shock) because it's time for everyone to double battle with the random person they just switched to.
Or, if I'm not wrong about this, I hope it at least sets the stage for an extremely qt dance after the battle ends, either by the party arrangement, Serena building up the nerve, or Ash seeing how shocked she was about the dance ending/sad she is about losing the match (assuming they lose the match) and wanting to cheer her up.
So why did the little child of the group figure it out before the rest?
I made a long-ass post on a forum about this, where I acknowledged this possibility, too.
Serena may be reacting to Miette either before or during the dance, and the dance might end after the battle partners to-be have had a turn to dance.
Regardless of what happens a week from now, this is still the destined pairing.
Ash will not take any companions to the 7th gen world, especially not one based on the 6th gen playable character.
Nope. Most likely the dance is going to be called off mid-point. Expect it at the end, though. It is efficient (if Omode does it right) and ties in well with Eevee evolving from being a autistic shit. I assume it will be comfortable dancing with Pikachu to show its progress as a character.
>sylveon dancing with pikachu
>not ash and serena dancing alone
Ash would be the one to ask, obviously
We're also getting Lewd Eyes Ash 2: Electric Boogaloo
>innocent child crush
>must be madly in love
I guess it shouldn't come as a surprise that you people are out of touch with reality.
under appreciated segment
My god i wish you amourfags would just finally kill yourselves. Im sick of seeing the anime generals shit OP pic with Serena and and some autistic filename about amour. When will you manchildren learn that they're will NEVER be anything between ash and the region bicycle? What happens when XY ends and he leaves her like he has every other female?
It's not rocket science. The only time Ash has ever retained a female companion for a new region was Misty, going from Kanto to Johto, but that was because there were no other good candidates and on top of that, it was unsuccessful.
Ever since then, it's been a new girl every time, and I doubt that's about to change after XYZ ends. Like it or not, it's all part of promoting the new game, and it makes more sense to use a character from the latest product than one from the past. It's also no coincidence Brock has been MIA for two series now.
look at those proud parents
So i guess it might be safe to say here is where Ash and Serena are about to dance but get interrupted? It doesn't feel like a daydream, more like a slow build to a comical cock block.
Noibat is a qt
Yup, and I believe that the interruption will be them being told that everyone needs to get ready to battle with whoever they switched to.
The question then is if they pick up the dance afterwards as an official part of the dance party, or if that's left up to either Ash or Serena to initiate on their own terms.
All the movies got really fucked-up placements.
Movie 14 premiered between BW41 and BW42, but BW40-44 form a 5-episode arc it doesn't exactly fit into. Do note that the only reason it premiered here was that BW23 and 24 got skipped, though, had the series aired as originally intended, it'd have premiered between BW39 and 40, where it fits fine.
Movie 15 premiered between BW Season 2 episode 3 and 4, right in the middle of the Dawn arc, but at this point each episode was so tightly connected to each other it doesn't really fit anywhere else either, so if you want some sensible continuity, you just kinda have to go with the fact that the rest of the group went on a vacation without Dawn.
Movie 16 premiered between Decolora Adventure 11 and 12, and while there are no real plot complication there, the group is VERY clearly not traveling the Decolora Islands at the time. It'd be like if movie 2 was randomly set back in Kanto.
>how much am I going to regret this in general?
It's better in hindsight when you KNOW the series isn't very good and that things get better with XY
At the end of XYZ, each character will go their separate ways. Ash will go to the 7th gen region, Clemont and Bonnie will probably stay in Kalos and Serena will go somewhere, but it won't be with Ash.
Ash's new companions will probably be another male gym leader and the female player of the new game, because it's a formula that works. She probably won't have a crush on Ash because history shows all new characters to be different from the last.
There will be an episode where Serena returns. It will have some amourish moments/blushes, but that's all it will be.
Since you seem knowleadgeable, when did M18 premiere? It has Noibat but no Talonflame, so it's between 76 and 86. There weren't arcs in-between and the group was just travelling towards the next town, so I think it's safe to assume it was set between the exact episodes it released if they're between those.
It's going to get interrupted hence the cut. Why do the writers like making Serena suffer in her love life? Next she'll have to watch Ash taking damage with Ash-Greninja. Which will probably lead to their argument.
level of butthurt right now is delicious.
>all life means nothing
>anything you will try to do will amount to nothing in the end as everything will be washed away by the tide of the years
>the Sun will swallow the Earth when it dies
I'm just trying to make you understand how stupid your posts are, just like how idiotic OPMfags are about "muh shounen parody", because "lol we know the hero is going to win anyway".
Nothing is about the destination, it's all about the voyage.
The canon one is Black, where Ash gets the Reshiram. Ash wakes it up in the movie, while Damon woke up Zekrom some time ago. Because Zekrom is canon to the first episode of BW, it had to have been woken prior to the setting of the film, therefore it must have been the one Damon woke.
Why are you watching Pokemon? You will die one day, and all the enjoyment you had will mean nothing, and even less so when the Sun becomes a red giant and the solar system is uninhabitable.
Who cares if it's fun? It means nothing.
those guy outfits look ridiculous why couldn't they just wear suits?
The fuck nigga I was just implying serena is a thirsty girl
It's his own damn fault for not initiating the spin. You have to lead that shit if you're the guy. As Ash shows, you guide one of the girl's hands up so as to create an axis, and then lead her other hand across to make her spin. All that other guy did was just stand back and expect her to force herself into a spin without giving her any momentum.
Because suits aren't even black tie, while ballroom dances are black tie or, more traditionally, white tie (tailcoats for guys, full-on ball gowns for women).
Black tie means that they need, at minimum, tuxedos and dresses. A suit isn't even that much.
I could honestly see this.
>Bonnie can't take part in the dance despite being all dressed up
>Pierre sees her bummed out and makes it up to her by parting with Aria for a bit and dancing with her instead.
>"why do I have such a shit partner?"
>"you dumbfuck, you have no supposed to stand back and close your eyes like a damn virgin. You are supposed to act!"
>"why can I just dance with Satoshi as soon as possible?"
>"I want to be with Satoshi"
>"I want to dance, not wriggle around"
>"Come on Satoshi, you're supposed to be with me anyway"
>"why can I just dance with Satoshi as soon as possible?"
>"I want to be with Satoshi"
>"I want to lay with Satoshi"
>"I want to fuck Satoshi"
>"wait, what was I doing? Oh shit, the virgin's still standing there"
That's the only reason I could think of for why she just stops. That or she's impressed at how well Ash is dancing, though he still looks like a bit of a goof ball.
But the scene of the slowmo is prime for getting interrupted. If Ash and Serena dance in the end I'd rather see Serena initiate it.
You're right, though: they're right next to each other, and given that neither of them are with their first partners, then it stands to reason that Ash is going to rotate to Serena next. Even if you assume that there's some intricate maneuver where the couples all diagonally cross between each other, the two would still be next to each other only if they're next.
Actually, I can picture him grabbing some background cuties that come to see the performances. The guy is classy as fuck.
>"My jolies Mesdemoiselles, now that you have quenched your heart's thirst for eyecandy Pokemon delicacy, I, Monsieur Pierre, will treat you to another level of wonders and excitement."
I'm the second one you quoted but I got it, granted I first heard it back when it was being applied to Braixen watching Frogadier battle before being interrupted by the girls who worked for Valerie.
Actually, that would be only giving back what happened during the Training Camp. And, as someone who has experience in kneeling in front of a girl and make the foot enter the shoe without problem, I gotta say I'd very pleased to see that.
>Ash kneels down to below dress level to do it
>Serena makes a sound that prompts Ash to look up at her and ask if everything's already
>the door to the ballroom opens up as people leave and a cold draft blows in, blowing Serena's skirt over Ash's field of vision
>"Finally! I get to dance with satoshi"
>"Holy shit his hands are warm"
>"He's holding my body omg"
>"I like his perfume"
>"Come near me satoshi"
>"Can't get enough of satoshi"
Someone can probably do a better job than me but here goes:
>Serena is practicing wherever and she gets and invite
>Eevee is probably already out with Bunnelby, so Serena suggest pairing up with Clemont
>They get to the party meet Millefeui, and spaghetti ensues
>Pierre and Elle do their thing
>The dance rules are announced and it starts, rotating throughout
>Ash and Serena get to each other but it's interrupted
>Ash and Serena vs Millefeui and James
>The former gets their asses kicked until Eevee evolves and they win
>Serena/Ash ask the other to dance
>yfuckingfw we're entering Gouguru territory with how Ash scored Mightyena girl
People are getting pretty fucking lewd about this episode.
All this talk of shoestripping, jesus fug
How did Ash make such a "big impression" on her anon?
I can't stop smiling, this is a great day to be alive
>yfw Millefeui cuts in and drags Ash away
>Good on you, Serena
>So about that threesome...
Overall yeah, though I can't help but be bummed over how heartbroken Serena's going to be that she's (most likely) going to get interrupted. It's made a bit worse that, if they have a dance afterwards, we have yet to see it.
>B-but I want Ash to be all mine!
>Oh, you think Ash is the one I want to interact with in the threesome?
,,, that other anon is right, this episode is taking us all kinds of lewd places.
Believe in omode.
When I wrote that I was picturing more of a situation where Ash is always on one side of Serena and Milfy is on the other side, where Ash and Milfy never even momentarily touch each other.
If we're going lesbian, though, then you might as well make it a foursome, because Dawn is so Ash-like that Serena would probably get a crush on her if they ever met.
>Serena is so upset at being interrupted before she could even touch Ash to dance with him, and so concerned about Ash being hurt after their battle, that Ash decides he needs a way to show that he's physically fine and to cheer her up; thus, he concludes that the only course of action is to dance with her, to kill two birds with one stone.
>yfw they don't have a metronome so they go with one of their heartbeats instead;
>Ash suggests she lays her head on his chest so she can hear his
>instead of Ash's heartbeat, the decision is to use Serena's
>they tire themselves out because Serena's unfathomable amount of spaghetti spillage makes her heart go doki doki too fast
This thread has become so lewd.
And the worst is that I'm mainly responsible for it.
>Unlimited pottery works
>Ash's main is Water
>Serena's main is Fire
>water is used to give clay form
>fire is used to bake the clay to make it into a pot
>this description can double as making a kid with fluids and the oven
It's just full blown pottery making.
If that was Serena vision, then can it be concluded that Serena also being shiny and moving in slow motion is Ash vision?
Given how broadly both of them were smiling, I think it'd be a fair assumption to make.
>Serena also being shiny and moving in slow motion is Ash vision
Well fucking okay then.
>at dance party
>want to tease that poor, beta Serena
>I see someone in blue
>run up to him and ask him to dance, while she's looking
>she has to dance with that nerd friend of them, Whateverhisnameis
>she doesn't seem that embarrassed...shit, I forgot that you can change dance partners on this party, she knows she will eventually dance with him
>I have to think quickly
>"Hey Ash, I made a new Puff recipe, would you like to taste its flavor?"
>"Well yeah, of course!"
>kiss Ash on the lips
>Serena has stopped dancing and is watching me, her face is as red as the fire from a Flamethrower
>decide to go even further
>push my tongue as far as I can into his mouth
>Serena is starting to cry
>"Now it's time for you to show me some new flavors, Ash", I say, and I pull his pants down in front of everyone and...wow
>start sucking his Onix clean, always keeping an eye on Serena
>she's already down on the floor, shaking uncontrollably
>he shoots a big load in my mouth, as I try to pull his cock as far as I can into my throat
>Serena is convulsing, her mouth is full of foam, and she's screaming at the top of her lungs
>I clean my mouth after swallowing Ash's cum, stand up, and walk towards her
>wait until she regains some sense and can understand what I'm saying
>she looks at me
>"...Never give up until the end!"
I wasn't contesting that. At this rate, everybody's under the assumption that they're gonna get interrupted prior to even holding hands: here, Serebii, even leddit.
If the dance ends up happening before the battle, it'd be nearly ubiquitously hailed as a bigger surprise than an interruption.
>February 9, 2017: the gang stumble upon a theater where a dress rehearsal is being held for a classic love story from Kalosian folklore.
>there's a scene where the guy calls up to a balcony for the girl to come down, whereupon she complies and it's followed by a wedding
>during the dress rehearsal, however, the girl falls over the balcony and onto the guy, injuring both of them so neither of them can perform
>the director throws a tantrum, turns around, sees Ash and Serena in front of Clemont and Bonnie as they all look on, and cries out that they'd be perfect replacements
>it turns out Serena knows the story by heart and Ash would barely get any lines, so Serena volunteers before Ash has any time to potentially object
>on the day of the performance, tragedy strikes as everyone in the theater drowns in a flood of spaghetti as Serena and Ash act like they're getting married
Jesus fucking Christ I turned the autism all of the way up for this shit
I actually managed to get a clean shot by slowing the footage down. Here you go.
>they die but are brought back to life in one of the movies as usual
>they get informed that, legally, since they were both dead, the state considers them separated
>they have to drag everybody they know back out for ANOTHER wedding one town over from their last one
>Serena calls her mother to let her know how her adventure is going
>Ash interrupts like he did when he first met her
>Ash: "We also got married a few days ago!"
>Serena opens up an Italian restaurant
>Her mother is the supplier
>Ash is the chef
>their wedding vows the second time around include one of them mentioning that the scariest part about being dead was knowing that they'd never see the other one (smile, if you want extra cheese) again
>all this "otoko" talk
Is Ash talking about how this battle is between men or something?
The colors are turned so bright it burns my eyes
<-- this is how my eyes look now
Dat fucking music.
>Ash, with a straight face: "But we don't even know how to do that!"
>one of the parents: "Oh, give it time, you two will figure it out eventually" and they hang up
>Serena's melting into spaghetti when Ash makes it even worse by simply saying, "Huh, sounds like it'll take a while to figure out. Come on, Serena, we better start this now or we'll never get it done!"
>February 15, 2018: procreation happens
>Delia's and Grace's faces when Ash energetically tells them they figured out how to make grandkids, and they've already begun mass production
>Serena walks into camera view rubbing something off of her face when she stops in shock and sees her mom on the phone
>when Ash mentions "mass production," her entire body shivers
HOLY SHIT ARE THEY DRUNK? ON JUICE?
>and they've already begun mass production
Serena, Noibat isn't your Pokemon.
That's a thing or is it just some animu trope?
I swear, one episode they'll play every fucking insert song Sato has composed for this project and it will be glorious.
Noibat isn't her Pokemon, he's her and Ash's kid.
That's a thing, although it's extremely, extremely rare. I recall a story of a guy who got pulled over and registered higher than the legal limit on a Breathalyzer even though he truthfully, honestly didn't have a single alcoholic drink before getting into the car.
What the fuck move is this, guys?
Married couples pool their property and assets.
If they get divorced or die and come back to life, she takes possession Noibat, unless Pokémon follow child custody laws, in which case she still takes possession of Noibat.
>Eevee evolves into a sylveon
>genki little fucker
>still stupidly clumsy that every time it moves too much it trips on its own ribbons
>yfw Braixen later has to teach her not to trip.
I remember how Butterfree Tackling a net was fucking hardcore, but a bat kid ramming its skull into metal is pretty hardcore too.
By the way, why did Bonnie go to the cage?
>yfw the Beedrill are all
>It's the last minute before Sylveon's first show and it's still tripping on its own ribbons
>Braixen has to teach it not to trip while Serena is away fucking Ash or something before the show
>Braixen realizes that Serena got careless with her (as in Braixen)'s own costume, and it has things dangling down near its feet
>Braixen remembers its first performance as a Fennekin
>Braixen, internally: "Oh, fuck my life."
>that little nigger waving around its little stumps
top fucking kek
I love the colors in this shot.
Well, that was a pretty good breather episode, and like everybody has speculated Noibat gained a new move, a very powerful one at that.
Pokemon 4kids+XY Ash+TR at the beginning of BW= a Pokemon Anime worth watching
>TR are even more retarded then ever in this saga and do the same stupid thing
>Ash is annoyingly invincible in which skipping battled with him would be an option since you already know who will win
>Le epic Ash-Ninja shit to keep the franchise alive
i swear Pokemon has gone downhill since XY's premier. This director sucks in keeping with the actual Pokemon theme, having less humor in it and more serious/edgy moments. It's just shit to watch now.
>not the foliage
>dat Delphox and Klefki
What move is this cloud thing?
>dat Mightyena Girl
>dat Ash's smooth move
I can only hope that Ash or at least even Clemont dance with all our meme girls.
During a Tripokalon, where all the moves kinda change how they look; Pancham's Stone Edge makes platforms instead of spikes, for example.
Also, HOLY FUCK THE TEAM ROCKET SONG IS AMAZEBALLS
Yea, I agree. I think Ash and the rest looked a bit weird sometimes but the pokemon that were animated looked great. Especially when Noibat is taking a beating and when it just acrobatics.
>yfw May could've danced with Ash and he would've been great
The night of or the day after this upcoming episode airs, I'm gonna go watch "The Finest Hours," or, as I shall now begin calling it, "PokéShipping: The Movie".
The timing just fits too well: a movie about a violently but slowly sinking ship gets released within a day of this episode.
>implying the directors are just showing those "amour" scenes in the preview because they are planning something completely different
>implying amour is going to happen
character song project 2 expectations?
>There will never be a Bonnie x Meowth spinoff seires
a-are there any more Bonnie Meowth pics? P-please
>It's a duet that basically simply gives vocals to the Laverre City music, complete with the two having separate solos that follow each other through the beginning before leading to a build up to a proper harmony
Squishy will not allow this.
I'm surprised no one is making a remark about this scene
how much do you think is Zygarde enjoying this
>asking whether or not Ash and Serena will dance
They really like to fuck with people don't they? Serena is going suffer be when it gets interrupted. Assuming the sparkling scene isn't a fantasy.
also no one mentions this scene
>tío es orgulloso
whoops forgot pic
>tfw there will never be a /padt/ sings XY&Z
