>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!?

POKEMON XY&Z CHARACTER SONG PROJECT VOL.1
>not at image limit
>not at page 10
>it is literally too late at night for me to care to tell you otherwise and to spend 2 hours arguing about it
This thread was pretty damn bad when XY59 aired because "a-amour btfo nice date nerds"
XY60 is a whole new level of hype though and is basically the biggest amour hint in existance, hell, it's probably the 2nd biggest hint in existance, the first being bianca's kiss in M05
I don't know if any other episode can live up to that amount of autism aside from an episode literally titled "Satoshi and Serena's first kiss?!"
I reiterate: Will this board reach XY59/60 levels of autism during that time,
or will it be worse?
Yeah because the present plus nose scratch was a pretty damn good hint from Ash's side.
I don't think it can compete with XY60 though, or hell, even XY07
>tfw entering lavarre feels comfy as fuck because you keep remembering xy7
>The Next Generation World Hobby Fair '16 Winter Tokyo Fair has opened! Lots of people have been here enjoying the fair since early morning! The Pokemon Booth is marked with the Pikachu balloon! Admission is free! Come visit the fair at Makuhari Messe!
>The Next Generation World Hobby Fair Tokyo Fair is being held right now! At the Pokemon Booth, we're distributing a "Pokemon Movie Newspaper Extra"! Come get it at the Pokemon Booth! *Only a limited number is available
>Rica Matsumoto and Tomohisa Sako have appeared at the Pokemon Booth! They're raising the roof with an excitable stage show! The two will also be holding another show later today! Look forward to that! The Next Generation World Hobby Fair Tokyo Fair is being held right now!
>The Next Generation World Hobby Fair Tokyo Fair will be held tomorrow, Sunday the 24th, as well! The residents of the popular, currently airing TV show "Pokemon no Uchi Atsumaru?" will be at the World Hobby Fair Stage! Let'Z also raise the roof with a heatburst of a stage show at the Pokemon Booth!
>Pokémon no uchi atsumaru? episode 17:
>Nicole Fujita and Rinka-chan once again clash in a Pokémon battle! Will all the training Rinka-chan has gone through be enough for her to get payback? Then everyone attempts Pokémon Yoga! Who will manage to do best?
>Nicole Fujita once again visits Pokénchi! Of course, the reason for her visit is to have a battle with Rinka-chan! Rinka has practiced hard since her previous defeat, but will she be able to get payback? Also, Abareru-kun suggests everyone try Pokémon Yoga! This, too, causes sparks to fly between Nicole and Rinka!
>Guest: Nicole Fujita
Ash will loose to Wulfric at the first time because Ash-greninja will fail, and he will black out at the same time.
but, to this happing Ash can't loose to Alan, so they battle will end before Greninja fail.
I tried to redraw this but i can't stop laughing because the expression looks very silly
>we won't get hospitalized ash and worried waifu
>Battle gets called off
this isn't a serena battle anon.
>getting a mega ring
>not thinking he'll be stuck with ash-greninja forever
>not thinking trevor will get mega charizard y
Even if the last point won't be true, at this point, I really do believe Ash will not get a Mega Ring because he doesn't need one in order to defeat mega evolutions. Y know, the same thing with "I can still defeat a ground type with Pikachu!!!"
Please grant me this one moment of tripfaggotry for drawing
>Pierre announces that he'll be retiring soon and feels that Ash is charismatic enough to replace him
>Serena has an uncontested rise to the rank of Kalos Queen in two weeks after Ash takes over
Both at the same time:
>Ash running toward Serena from frame left
>Serena running at Ash from frame right
>Ash disappears into blue flames in the same frame Serena disappears into pink flames
>An extra panel at the bottom showing the entirely empty scene left over
No matter how good your rhythm is, it's pointless if the enemy can easily destroy it.
I wonder how his fight with Olympia went.
>Tierno: check out my rhythm strategy
>Olympia: haha, such a funny child *zaps him with psychic*
I don't understand why people point out that Ash is smiling too much in that picture. It could be a fantasy or just Serena adding sparkles in her head and what not. but what is Ash suppose to do look angry or grin at all the girls he dances with??
there could be a first for everything I guess.
he is also smiling when he is dancing witht eh chuni bitch
>some anon read my comment and its probably measuring smiles right about now
>can activate ash's sweep boner by just looking at him
There isn't a thing that points to it being a fantasy.
You know, I'm willing to bet people thought that gift scene was fantasy.
That's because she is Ash's
>Bonnie keepus Swanna girl
>she accepts out of desperation
>as she dances with Clemont, he tells her he can't accept because there's someone he already likes while looking at Ash and Serena dancing
>Swanna girl wrongly assumes he's talking about Serena
>giving geekchic faggots a chance to say their ship is "canon" from clemont's side with interpretation
That's barely it when they use the sparkles and other effects for other stuff in shojou as well in scenes that focus on romance.
Scene placements tend to be all over the place as well.
That can be fixed.
>There's a zoom in on Ash's face while he says that
So is Wulfric gonna have Mega Abomasnow?
Probably if they want to have a challenging match up for Ash-Greninja especially after Alain's and Shota's megas
Wulfric: Cryogonal, Avalugg, Mega Abomasnow
Ash: Hawlucha, Talonflame, Ash-Greninja
I now picture XY&Z and the old Status Quo in a very kinky bdsm relationship where XY&Z keeps tantalizing the Quo, making it think it has a chance, then breaking it at the perfect time.
I actually hope he won't have a Mega. Olympia was presented as a hell of a lot more challenging than Korrina, and the show likes playing up the "they have many MANY years of experience" angle when it comes to old people. I want them to present Wulfric as an extremely tough opponent even without any megas or pseudos or other unfair advantages. Just have him be a really good trainer.
>not giving him the mega and experience to make him Super Wulfric
>not having based grandpa Helmut as an unstoppable dreadnought with mons of devastating firepower to stomp Ash for being overly confident, then fall defeated in same way, to clearly present a lesson that "Don't talk shit if you can't walk it" BEFORE league.
Here's what will actually happen;
Millefeui will in fact steal ash and dance with him, but at the end of the episode, an upset Serena crying because she didn't dance with him, then he steps in and offers to dance, and they dance in the moonlight, alone together.
>they never even interact
>they get shipped
I'm confused Sharon.
I honestly don't like seeing Serena suffer at all. In fact, the preview footage of Serena reaching out for Ash's hand gives me a sinking feeling in my chest every time I see it because I know it's going to be interrupted one way or another.
Just give the poor girl da Ash already,
This is what TVTropes refers to as "Ships that pass in the night."
It's a shipping pun off of a famous quote.
Pokémon in general has a shitload of these because there are fans for absolutely every pairing ever, even ones that involve Santa Claus for some fucking reason.
What you're going to get is Ash running everyone over with a truck just like back in the date episode.
It'll be so much even Millefeui spaghettis.
I personally ship the Mewtwo from the first movie with the Mewtwo from the 16th one. They're confirmed to be different specimens, and it's way too likely in my mind that the former is male while the latter is female, at least comparatively speaking.
That and I find that there are few text-driven mental images in this world that can gross people out more than the idea of two Mewtwos fucking each other.
>"Oh yeah, stick it right in that gap between my neck and my second neck!".
But if it's in the middle of the episode that would be a good thing. No point in a dance if it isn't meaningful, and anything meaningful in these episodes almost always happen at the climax/end.
Aye, it was a poor choice of words on my part. I should probably clarify that the trope that most annoys me in any source of media is "such and such popular couple look like they're about to hold hands/kiss but at the last possible nanoangstrom HOO BOY here comes some wacky high jinx interruption that has little to nothing to do with them, that stops the thing and leads to an indefinite postponement because I guess these characters don't care THAT much about each other or something"
It's at its most annoying if the thing gets implied with a preview, only for the the interruption to delay the event beyond the next installment or two. I can actually bear with it if the event happens for real later in that installment.
Thankfully, Pokémon hasn't done this with these two (until this coming episode), and even here it looks like they're probably going to do it by the end of the episode, in which case I'll forgive it. It just reminds me a little bit too much of the bullshit for the time being.
>either forgetting about or missing out on that one green text suggesting that the "private dance in an empty ballroom" at the episode's end devolves into Serena giving Ash a lapdance in one of the chairs
Which makes me wonder how they'll make it end. I know the writers could care less what the west thinks, but the Japanese love this pairing, so having it end with nothing of consequence might not bode well for the future of the series.
Sorry if that came off as emofagging.
Reminder that this show wasn't nearly as long as Pokemon.
The Pokemon anime's primary purpose is to sell merchandise. It's not meant to be unique or have complex plotlines. The whole Serena crush thing won't go anywhere because it doesn't need to.
He's (more or less) invented for the anime.
In the game, the villains kidnap this professor guy's son to blackmail the professor into using Iceman to sabotage the waterworks. The son just has the generic "little boy" model and has like two lines in the entire game, but for some reason the anime decided to make HIM the operator of Iceman instead of his dad, turning him into a main character and giving him a new design.
What would Slayer be like in the Pokemon world?
Does their sex become unexpected patriotic during the last 30 seconds? Because my favorite polka sure as hell does.
The Stars and Stripes Forever suddenly showing up in the piano and one of the xylophones during the last refrain gets me every time
Except it hasn't. It's only ever been spaghetti, and that's all it ever will be. Ash hasn't shown a single sign of romantic affection for her, and never will, because that doesn't sell the games.
You have no idea what people can do with just a chair.
Guess the Pokemon in the "?" mark is Volcanion
>"I'm strong because of my friends, because of my Pokemon! The bonds we share are what keep me going!"
>"Shut up. Bonds? True power doesn't come from them. But if you're such a fool to believe that, I will crush those bonds of yours to teach you a lesson."
XY does have an endgame feeling to it, but then, if Gen 7 is announced, which it most likely will be, one of two things will happen:
-Anime continues as it has done and everyone cries
-Anime is rebooted and the Ash story ends. Closure is had
>"Shut up. Bonds? True power doesn't come from them. But if you're such a fool to believe that, I will crush those bonds of yours to teach you a lesson."
That doesn't sound like Alan. He's pretty much like Ash regarding "m-muh bonds".
That line should be for Paul, a jerkass league rival, or a Jose Mendoza-ish character
But Jose was a loving family man.
Also reminder that Ash will burn his flame until there is nothing left but pure white ash when using Ash-Greninja in the league finals.
You wouldn't be so hung up on this reference if you weren't doing 4kids there with Ash-Greninja and "white hot ash".
I didn't even know 4kids said that. I was just going off the English subs for Ashita no Joe 2.
>you go to sleep after another miserable day in your pathetic life
>wake up to this
>not something about discovering they are similar and that they will fight until the end to protect smiles
>not making it so they declare they are not fighting as enemies but as
>"Shut up. Don't speak like you know what you're talking about. You think I don't have people to protect, too? I'll fight for the people I care for, and nobody will stop me. And I will destroy anyone who tries to do it; even you, Satoshi."
Hawlucha is Heihachi
Noibat is Momo
Am I right?
I like your list but Roxanne is at least a 6
This preview was basically pure spaghetti
someone give this bitch a glass of water
And apparently Eevee being fine with dancing with not-bunnies after all.
It means it finally got good. Partner switching and shit.
She's masturbating to the thought of dancing with Ash
So amour starts off with a bang this year.
Will the autism collage have to have a part 2 by the time the episode comes?
It looked scared as shit as usual presumably before the dancing happens. Guess it eases into the mood slowly as the dancing takes place. Good, since this basically means it most likely won't stay autistic when it evolves.
For what it's worth, I also happened to upload the Pokenchi preview. The resolution isn't as high, but the frame rate isn't as choppy. Whichever you guys prefer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dAdLvOxpYT4
So Millefeui asked Ash before Serena did and that's the reason she goes with Clemont? I like it, Millefeui kept her word that she'd make a push towards winning da Ash.
That episode is going to be spectacular for new Serena pics. I can't wait.
>the face of a cuck
>Millefeui makes the move
>it ends with Ash going for Serena instead
Haha Serena got cucked hard as fuck
Right, because you don't post the same shit every weekend even though you have others biting your bait every weekend that tell you otherwise but you still do it because somehow you deluded yourself into thinking you haven't done this before.
She just needs to learn that sharing is caring.
If Milly's sneak Ash stealing convinces her to get her shit together and confess I will regain hope on it happening
>again, Bonnie knowing is a wasted potential plot point that was used once as a gag and completely forgotten
>At this point Serena confessing by the end of the saga is believeable.
This is some next level delusion.
>to keep the fans happy.
Enough for me, i'm truly happy
>by the end of XY&Z12 Serena and Millefeui get physical
>near the end it goes like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NUrQ9c6y2SQ
All we need is some imagery of Serena punching Millefeui and we're set
>shitposter going all out now once second preview seems to kill the prospect of the sparkle scene being fantasy
He just seems pretty fucking happy he gets to dance with her.
>he asks her and states that he wanted to dance with her since he saw the invitation earlier that day
So would anyone here be mad if Millefeui actually stole Ash from Serena?
Wouldn't really bother me all that much to be honest, Millefeui is God-tier afterall.
(Along with Serena, Korrina and May.) Disagree and you're wrong.
>Annnnnd Millefeui cuts in.
>Millefeui: "Remember Ash? You promised to dance with me!"
>Ash: "That's right! Sorry Serena, maybe Clemont or Bonnie will dance with you."
he probably doesn't know what that smell is..
>being mad about ash choosing best girl
Ugh, part of me was hoping this episode wouldn't have so much spaghetti because the collage is already large enough as is.
Well whatever, just so I can get started early...what do guys want me to remove to make room from this episode? Or should I start a new one?
Get rid of 2 of the very bottom row. Having 3 shots of that scene is pointless when you only need either the second or third one
Lose one of the Mamoswine cave shots
Lose the foot, ffs
The one where she says he can beat Valerie doesn't have an Amour feel to it
Derailing this thread.
With no survivors.
No one important.
I occasionally draw for the thread when I can be arsed.
So does anyone have any requests?
Make it interesting/simple and I might remember to draw it tomorrow, since I'm going to my bed in about 10 minutes.
Should probably start taking notes down somewhere...
>mfw all the spaghetti has been spoiled
I SHOULD HAD KNOWN BETTER
>So does anyone have any requests?
Kalos kiss with Serena and Millefeui
Oh that? It's done, I just didn't like it so I never bothered to upload it.
I still have it so if you can make a thread on /b/ or something if you want it.
Alright I've actually written this one down.
Keep 'em coming.
Draw Ash/Serena at the dance doing a glass slipper scenario. Ash placing it on her foot, and Serena flustered as fuck.
Or, Ash and Alan punching eachother in the face at the same time, both with angry expressions on their face and Manon and Serena watching them.
>implying there isn't such an unfathomable amount of spaghetti in the episode that they considered it safe to show us all of this without even having the spaghetti-est moment given away
>forgetting the ramen that'll come
So did you guys liked the new preview? I'm pretty hyped. We can expect a lot of amour this ep but his preview shows that the whole episode will be amour related. Any predictions on how it will end?
Is this the first time we've actually have seen Serena legit thirsty, and quite possibly aroused?
>the whole episode will be amour related
Well Bonnie does need another Pokémon to fill that slot in her bag after Squishy leaves.
Link me I'm lazy.
>How's that Star Wars Ash vs Alan going, drawcunt?
Forgot about it.
>Also, do you happen to be an aussie?
Nah I'm Scottish, why?
Never heard of it.
>tfw this is what XYZ will become
hadn't seen this one in a long time
I unfortunately was napping when this preview came out so this is purely coming from seeing these still images, but my first thought with this is that Ash is describing something hypothetical in detail and Serena is imagining herself on the receiving end of it.
Someone green text the entire episode now with the two previews we have.
Even if I lose one battle, I won't lose the war.
My epiphany will become true!
>Upload the rest nigga
So it's either one of three scenarios with that scene and the one where Serena appears to be freaking out.
>She's about to dance with Ash only to get cut off
>She stares at him, thinks about dancing with him only to realize what she's doing
>She sees Millefeui dancing with him
Which is it? My guess is the first one with the third option being the least likely.
Any other possible scenarios?
Well, if you want another less likely scenario:
>the preview editors know full well that if they cut a scene like that off early, both watchers of the series and cynical people in general will assume that they're not going to go through with it, especially after the date episode preview did that; therefore, in an unprecedented double ruse and trope subversion for the series, the scene isn't fantasy nor is it interrupted: she actually takes his hand and dances with him
>Serena sees the invitation
>Ash watches it as well
>Serena sees Eevee and she decides to dance with Clemont so Eevee can ease up and enjoy it like everyone else but still wants to dance with Ash
>Millefeui out of nowhere and mentions about the dance
>Serena talks about helping out Eevee
>Millefeui goes in for the kill and asks Ash
>Serena goes Kaiji
>dance turns out to have a partner shuffle
>Millefeui's plan backfires
>shit happens and Eevee easing up
>dance partners get shuffled and Ash and Serena get partnered
>dance ends before they dance and the Endless Waltz of battle begins
>battle antics with Pikachu and Sylveon
>Ash goes ramen telling Serena he really wanted to dance with her from the beginning when he saw the invitation but knew Eevee needed the help but asks if she'll dance with him anyway
>UNLIMITED_POTTERY_WORKS.jpg and the dance
