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!?

POKEMON XY&Z CHARACTER SONG PROJECT VOL.1
We should just catalog all of the shit that this nigga fucked up here.
So far, I recall:
>Didn't lead her into a spin
>Let her hand slip out of his
>Closed his goddamn eyes
>Ash will make a great impression on every girl he dances with
>Ash will get a girl fan base that will follow him to the league
Well, we see her in the new year's special. It is inevitable and likely that she will either be in the Ash vs Alain episode or the TR vs TF episode where Alain appears as well.
I hope she and Hari-san moved to Sycamore's lap instead of Lysandre Labs allowing for her to be able to meet up with Ash and gang.
>yfw this really is the last season where Ash will be the protagonist, as he starts off next season telling the new protagonist that he'll "Smell ya later" as he drives off in a sports car filled with his fangirls-turned cheerleader squad
I could honestly imagine this actually happening in the episode, especially with how much shit that Pikachu and the Pika-approved girl had to suffer through because of her and her mons
Yes. We just don't know what episode it will be.
Might just be 13 or 14.
>Karma repays Swanna Girl in the very last episode of the series by having Serena resign her recently-earned title of Kalos Queen so that she can travel with Ash, and Swanna Girl is given the title through some technicality or loophole that nobody expects
Gary please. Ash knows not to spend money on cars only for later to lose it all like you did.
>Swanna girl probably didn't want to the party but the guy found out about it and forced her to go
>yfw the Ash/Serena dance ends up being straight out of Pulp Fiction
>"Banging in the closet" refers to Ash using the first honest-to-god firearm to appear in the show in 850 episodes against Milfy
>Serena's response is the same "Fuck 'em up" smile she and Ash had during battles
>yfw he's her agent
>yfw he forced Swanna Girl to go indecent things for the agency to sponsor her
>yfw Swanna Girl has been forced to use casting couch tactics to advance her career, and once sucked off Pierre, only for Serena to win that Showcase anyway
>yfw Swanna girl is dead inside
>she ends up getting paired up with Clemont
>remembers him from the PokeVision
>he starts talking a bit about how he's seen her a few times and thinks she's done well
>he lights up hope for her
>started watching the anime from the beginning a few months ago
>just finished the BW series
Finally on to the X/Y series. Now I noticed there's the Mega Evolution specials. I've been watching episodes and movies in "chronological" order.
Are the Mega Evolution specials a side story to the main series or is it its own series?
If it is a side story, can I watch all of them anytime or by release date with the main series?
They're a side story. The first three take place before XY068 with ME I happening a ways after XY002.
Also, WHY DID YOU WATCH BW??
Best Wishes Decolora Adventure 20 (not XY, but it's recommended you watch this first, since XY1 has a lot of callbacks to dialogue from it)

>getting upcoming events spoiled when he can just watch them
I don't think she would go that far. Remember, her goal is for serena to win da ash
I'm kinda half-expecting now that Millefeui in a later episode would invite Ash in some big type event, kinda like a date, an actual one, and rub it all over Serena's face, and Ash accepts he's just that kind of guy. Later depressing Serena. Ash notices this but is is forced to accompany Millefeui, though all the while Ash's mind is on Serena. Also, Bonnie and Clemont are enjoying the event together, leaving Serena alone.
While Serena is shown moping about Ash later arrives and tells her how he was worried and as such excused himself from Millefeui. Seeing Ash leave her, Millefeui just says
In normal animu this would be those Japanese festivals where they go to the shrines wearing yukatas and having fun at the stalls culminating in the climactic fireworks display being seen by the couple.
That could be a pretty good episode actually
The gang meet up with millefeui, serena and her go shopping and halfway through serena asks why millefeui is pushing her on so much
Cue sob story
You kind of got that already actually.
>yfw the guy she was crushing on was pic related
>we might get smug bonnie in xyz12
>Millefeui used to be an extremely close friend to Serena when they were both extremely young in Kalos, and it was something Millefeui treasured
>Serena ended up taking a trip all the way out to Kanto for a summer camp
>When Serena came back, all she could talk about was this really nice boy named Ash she met
>All of a sudden Serena was "Satoshi Satoshi Satoshi" for about a year
>Millefeui became jealous and eventually hostile towards Serena over how much she talke about this boy that she'll probably never see again
>Millefeui's parents eventually decided that it might be best to move to the other side of the region to get the two away from each other
>Millefeui remembers the early days, but Serena doesn't because Serena had been thinking about Ash so much after that point
>yfw Serena is Millefeui's Ash
>yfw Millefeui is trying to push them closer together while he's here because she was surprised to see Ash actually meet up with her again, and because she doesn't want to see Serena turn into the girl that she became for a while if Ash should end up settling for some different girl further down the road
How big of a plot twist would this be?
I'm gonna watch BW and I
hope I will enjoy it too
She's so delicious, bros
>ywn motorboat her titties
Yeah, but Serena was never forced to be alone or however you call it. It would be a great call back of her and Ash's first meeting with Ash saving the day again after
Sereha's slippers broke after she tripped and he has to carry her.
>Ash gets to Kalos League finals
>We've heard nothing about his opponent at all, not even from previews or official sources
>Ash goes into the stadium and it's pic related.
>"It looks like you don't have
Infernapeto help you this time."
>Ash runs off in the middle of his date with Milfy and ends up coming back like that
>Ash explains the situation as it becomes Serena's turn to be smug
>Millefeui tells them to blow up and die
>Millefeui is dancing with Ash
>hears the faint sound of jet engines
>sees Serenas fist coming towards her
>The final opponent is not Paul.
>He went to enter the Kanto league after BW but got the name of the region wrong and entered the Kalos league instead.
>He tries to mega-evolve Lucario multiple times during the battle despite not having a Mega Stone or Mega Ring.
He still wins.
I can hardly imagine young Gary being anything other than the jerk to Ash that he was in the early original series. If so, then if Serena saw the way he treated Ash, he probably would have earned himself a life-long enemy, since that's the only thing she could remember him being in the years since she saw him..
Dude, we know from earlier episodes that Gary and Ash were on good terms with each other until they found and then accidentally split that Pokeball. The Summer Camp would have had to be well before then so they probably got along pretty well in front of Serena.
>implying he wasn't jealous of Ash beating him in getting a girl first that he had to spend money for eight girls to cheerlead for him only to lose them later and why he spent all his time trying to put down Ash
One of the more interesting ideas thrown around was that Serena used to live in the area, and spent at least a bit more time with Ash than just the summer camp, before her mother moved to Kalos for one reason or another.
>yfw Ash didn't know her name because he always called her "straw hat girl" to his mom, which is what his mom in turn referred to her as whenever she was about to come over to play, even though Grace and Delia had mother-to-mother talks from which she learned her actual name
>there are people who thought the ad would be anything other than pokemon go
>this is why Ash wore a straw hat before becoming a trainer, because he kept unconsciously thinking about "straw hat girl"
>this is why Ash became the Pirate King before deciding to disband his crew and train pokemon
>Maybe Pallet is Saki's hometown?
>Saki and Serena's Father met and lived in Kanto
>one day he died from incurable ilness
>Saki was seriously depressed and moved to Kalos and was training Serena to be Top Rhyhorn Racer to distract herlsef.
>Serena becomes sick at the end of XYZ
>She and Ash are looking at sunset
>Ash, thank you. I'm happy that you with me until the end. Our journey was so much fun
>And I always wanted to say...that I love you
>she dies after that.
>Ash isn't wearing a straw hat when he helped Serena out because she gave him the straw hat as something to remember her by, as an equivalent to the handkerchief she kept from him
>The brim went from curved to cone-shaped because his head outgrew it by the time of those flashbacks
>The straw hat is why Ash recognized her by that before her name
>They actually were childhood friends for many years, the straw hat was simply the thing that he remembered first
>This contributed to Ash getting so attached to her so quickly in the early episodes of XY
>watching a sunset when one person is going to die during it like clockwork
Is it bad that pic related was stuck in my head the entire time I was reading your post?
>They pull the straw hat thing out in a later season to keep things fresh with Ash and Serena as two recurring characters
>The Pokémon they get in subsequent series are where they get the fire and water to continue making absurd quantities of pottery
>Older Serena still hasn't talked to Professor Oak yet.
I find that real peculiar, to be honest. Last time Ash talked to him was before she joined him; I have to wonder if the writers are planning something for when Oak appears again.
DJ Khaled for Pokemon Performer in Kalos when?
That's because Bonnie is the designated sufferer of the group. So far, Serena's been getting equal karma payback:
>Gets scared shitless on a bridge, gets comforted by muh Satoshi
>Ash keeps running away during her time alone with him, he comes back at the end with a present
>She loses her first showcase, she ends up changing her look in a way that Ash freely admits to liking
Even in the preview to this very episode, we have
>Her Eevee gets the shit kicked out of it, her Eevee evolves
Clearly Clemont designed the group's karma balance machines, because they keep blowing up in his and Bonnie's faces while being weighed heavily in favor of amourshipping even when he's trying to win the Ash Bowl
>Hey, I read about this place once online in between shitposting on /vp/
>I heard that this Tyrunt as a crucially important research asset, so important that they'd never be willing to give it away....
"Hey, look, Bonnie! A Tyrunt!"
>This should teach that little bitch to stop KEEPUing on my behalf.
>Clearly Clemont designed the group's karma balance machines
>implying said machines wouldn't all be rigged in his favor but just like in the sunken ship episode it immediately flips the good karma to Ash and Serena
>It's a part of a gambit: either his little sister needs to part ways with it which means he gets to see her suffer, or she gets to keep it in which case he gets to capture it and get a fucking Tyrantrum on his team. Either way, he wins.
It's more that she wants to dance with Ash, but notices Eevee wanting to so she has to pair up with Clemont. Millefeui sees this and she swoops in for the Ash. Millefeui's plan goes kaput when it turns out the dance is rotating partner while Serena tries a recovery.
>Braixen being the only female being thrown into a group shot of all male Pokemon
literally what the fuck are you talking about
Would almost buy.
Korrina figure when?
To build suspense for the ship that sails itself, either to sen it on a turnaround cruise or to light its masts and sales on fire for a while and see how people react before (I hope) extinguishing the flames.
... And by that, I mean either letting them dance or interrupting them before they can.
>Serena's seiyuu is the only one that is ass at singing
Hopefully they release figurines of all gym leaders from all regions, but i have the feeling they are gonna focus just on kanto because muh genwunner anniversary
Oh well. A Sabrina figurine would be nice as well
It was honestly worse than a Pokemon GO ad.
You wouldn't buy it anyway, kornifag.
There's multiple series of figures being published.
There's the G.E.M. Series, with Jessie, James, Ash and Misty, the HG series with RBG Brock and Misty and now the Perfect Posing Products series with Steven and Cynthia.
>muh genwunner anniversary
Probably, same reason why PokemonGO only seems to have generation 1 stuff.
I would only buy Misty, Sabrina and Korrina. Don't care much about the male gym leaders.
It's not in the Volcanion movie prize machine though, and that one already has Sylveon and Noivern so it's likely accurate. Either way, if it's happening it'll definitely be a Clemont capture due to the possibility of future Mega Blaziken from Limone.
>Limone as Blaziken Mask and Bonnie as Torchick with Clemont becoming Alfred
I recently finished watching the BW series a couple of days ago.
Honestly I thought it was OK but it's certainly at the bottom compared to the previous series.
You know how Ash kinda gets "lucky" in mismatches? They take that way too far in BW.
I only watched it because I loved the games so I wanted to see all the characters in anime form,
and my waifus.
There is not really much to say about this episode. I liked how Ash was enthusiastic about meeting new pokemon in Unova, because it reminded me of myself, when Gen 5 games came out.
Leaf Tornado is too overpowered. One hit and Pikachu faints. Bullshit.
Would have been nicer with Charizard instead of Charmander but I guess instead of shrinking it and making it sink into the ground (like with Cynthia and Steven), they just went with Charmander.
it is bullshit
Pikachu's faced off against even PokeGod and yet Leaf Tornado is what defeats him
it only gets worse from here on
I know the Ash one is from a while back since I saw it before as well. I'm just saying I really doubt they'd even consider putting a Charizard that's bigger than Ash and if the only alternative they could do was shrink it like with the new ones, they'd rather just use Charmander. Should have just went with Charizard and made it more expensive though.
even so, Pikachu's still faced off against some hardass opponents in the main series so it's still bullshit
although I see your point with Zekrom
I can't fucking remember, did they ever bring that up again in the series or was it brushed aside without even a mention like the GS Ball
that big electrical storm in the beginning of the first episode IIRC
I don't fucking get why they always have to abuse poor Pikachu in these series premieres
AG he nearly died, DP he got lost and in BW Zekrom rekt him
Serena is officially a lewd girl when it comes to Ash
I hope the previews didn't spoil all the spaghetti. We know most of it already now.
>Serena blushes and creams herself over thinking of pairing with Ash
>Serena gets triggered over Ash/Millefeui
>Serena stops dancing with one guy to stare at Ash for some reason and blush
>Ash and Serena have a shojo scene together with sparkles
>I hope the previews didn't spoil all the spaghetti
The same occurred with deito bowl previews
This is why i avoid previews at any cost
Speaking of Yashio, I'm surprised no one here is talking about her role in the episode.
I know she tells off Serena, but i imagine right after, Ash consoles her and reminds her to "never give up until it's over".
>this becomes the last episode of the series
>still supporting a dead pairing
needs this with millefeui instead of misty
Well yeah, pokemon style is way too simple and easy to recreate
reminder that Ash and Alan's fight will be all about smile protection and bonds.
BUT AS MEN FIGHTING FOR THOSE WHO THEY WANT PROTECT
>Ash's view up her skirt in the summer camp arc was followed several episodes later by the Deitobowl
>Ash's view up her skirt as everyone fell into the cave and in the time travel episode have both contributed to the episode coming up in 2½ days
>Every time he gets a view up her skirt, he's slowly drawn closer and closer to her
This karma machine is Clemont's worst invention yet if he was intending to give himself an Ash Bowl win with it.
Is this from that 30 Satoshis artist?
>It was in that moment, with Ash believing in Serena even when she was at her lowest, that Clemont realized that he's gonna need to go for every "accidental" grope that he can from here on out, because Ash is officially too far over in her camp to be saved
It's due to stuff like this, which was Clemont's reaction to Ash telling him "I'll grow with you."
Indeed, I simply only began saving after seeing them around several times before. By the time I was saving the ones I saw, people stopped posting the original.
It was pretty beautiful seeing all five in an ensemble like this, though.
>Even her mouth is shaped like a heart
No wonder why she is such a beast
>yfw her mouth was shaped that way in reference to the games and her future
I get the feeling that they very, very deliberately avoided showing Ash's face for the segment. Both he and the camera are entirely too fixed in position for it to seem dynamic.
They're hiding something.
>yfw Ash energetically accepts her invitation, but only because he's angry but begrudging, but not getting a look at his face prevents us from being aware of this until the writers decide to make us aware
What I was getting at was that Ash was upset that Millefeui asked him first, but begrudging because he feels obligated to accept the first request he got.
I did not argue at all against the idea that Serena should have made the first move here.
>she lectures Clemont on his futile efforts in the Ashbowl and why he should just give up
>says how his efforts are some of the most pathetic Ashbowl attempts she had ever seen
>says how it's actually pretty sad and embarassing
>says he should probably go kill himself to make up for it
Pretty sure most people still like original serena, but most of them prefer to keep silent to prevent being related to longhairfag
Besides, current serena is more cuter and superior
So a single person with an obvious posting style made the remaining 80 people forcefully change their habits via shitposting? There's no reason for this, people just need not to be retards and discern when it's longhairfag posting compared to anyone else.
>"most people still like original serena, but most of them prefer to keep silent to prevent being related to longhairfag"
Anon...even though I think new Serena is better than original Serena, I still like original Serena's design, and I have no qualms about saying that just because of one turbo autist from /pol/
If you seriously think that everyone in this thread who still enjoys Serena's old design actually keeps silent just because of one shitposter, you're an idiot.
>Milfy goes to make an alpha-as-fuck move on Ash
>Ash quickly shoots her down with a remark that, while polite, translates in layman's terms to "Fuck off, I like my chicks beta. If I want a girl, I'll be the one to ask her out, in a place and time of my choosing, on my terms."
anyone want mightyena girl to blush and fall for ash to join the ashbowl in this episode? How about a cute little dance between ash and bonnie?
All that means is that one anon in the thread simply misidentified longhairfag. Doesn't mean the entire fucking thread is petrified of the mere idea of mentioning Serena's old design.
you're not alone anon. I like the way she looks with both long and short hair, but i prefer long hair in general.
>She's old fashioned and modest enough to wears a 1930's-style swimsuit with an extremely short skirt covering her bikini bottoms, but stylish enough to pull it off and even make it tantalizing in the same way that a skirt is
>She goes for a 1910's style that shows off very little
>She goes the extra mile by changing in a 1910's bathing machine, which leads to Ash walking in on her, not realizing what the thing was
i hope we get a future episode where ash and bonnie bond and develop a better friendship which results in a cute hug from bonnie
I always felt like Serena's facial dimensions changed slightly. I'd like to see an overlay of the two faces on top of each other to convince me that I'm crazy and that they didn't change the look of her face.
She is always cute, with long or short hair
Definitely one her hairstyles i miss most
really cute anon, thanks for adding another pic to my collection. have a sexy ash pic in return
her ponytail is another reason i keep this webm since she looks so pretty with her long hair in a ponytail
what should Ash do if he sees Serena in this situation?
I think it's messing with you that we see more of her cheeks now. Her face hasn't changed, but the framing has.
>Ash, intending to change into swimwear, accidentally walks in on Serena changing
>Clemont and Bonnie realize this ahead of time and cover their ears expecting a ruckus followed by Ash flying back out of it
>Instead, there's total silence, followed by conversation and even laughter
>The two of them walk out, both in their swimsuits
and we'll always see the cuteness of her blushing.
I'm the anon you replied to. I figured maybe a tiny part of it was the animation directors or art team, but yeah your idea of the cheeks being a big part of it definitely makes sense. I was gonna say because it felt like her eyes were further apart before, but the hair definitely appears to be to blame for it.
Mystery solved! Thank you, anon.
that sounds cute and shows respect between the two, or just innocence that they don't see eachother that way sexually just yet. Anyone hope Serena will react to ash in his swim trunks?
hopefully advance it to get a better feeling for the two. Ash still a little innocent to love, but he does give some good hints that they might make him eventually react to the signs of attraction towards a girl, this case Serena
Well, to be frank, the two pictures I used are at two different distances and were originally two different angles. Her neck is thicker in the short hair one and her eyes are bigger in the long hair one, so part of it could be just the typical variations in art due to who's animating the shit from day to day. In my opinion, she looked a lot more gangly with the long hair, but it's probably because it was a fucking mane and swallowed her half the time, while her new outfit is baggier. But, yeah, as a whole, it's just the hair.
as much as you're right in the movie, Not many people like to think of it as canon. I wish they'd connect them to the movie in the anime and have them know what happened and what they did, rather than to never speak of it again.
I actually surprised myself a bit by not taking that in a sexual direction, despite the potential opening for it.
Now I'm starting to wonder if the show's tone/type of jokes is actually open to something like that.
>yfw extreme love-tapping
LET'S GET READY TO RUMBLE
From what we've seen in seems like more of the same. Serena getting jealous, Serena being beta, Serena oogling Ash, etc. Given Ash's willingness to dance with other girls so freely, him asking Serena to dance doesn't mean all that much.
I've been in these threads for months and I have never watched Ash VS Tobias, Ash VS Paul, Ash VS Cameron, Ash VS Tyson, Ash VS Morrison, or Ash VS Virgil
People always said these were the battles that Ash had in the League and I don't like watching the League because I hate to see Ash lose. But I finally watched Ash VS Cameron. And my question is
How did he lose?
How I want the episode to go:
>the group receives the invitation to the dance party
>Millefeui steals Ash and Serena goes with Clemont out of consideration for Eevee
>partner switching until it's Ash and Serena's turn
>interrupted by the announcement of the tag battle
>Eevee evolves, Ash and Serena win
>Serena is happy about the evolution, but disappointed that she didn't get to dance with Ash
>Ash offers her to dance right then
>episode ends on the two dancing
It wouldn't be anything too major, but it'd be a clear step forward.
I concluded as such as well, hence my remark about trying to find the same art director if possible.
The two scenes we have of Serena and Ash eating at dinner tables should be enough proof of how far some of these animation teams will adjust things like eye size.
anything to get those two to interact with eachother to break the friendship barrier and start something more.
true, but it seems that its a good start to get him to start developing a certain attraction towards girls. Perhaps ther'll be something that we haven't seen yet in the trailer that'll be really cute
The power of plot.
Pikachu shitstomped the living hell out of Lucario almost the whole fight, even overpowered Lucarios Iron Tail despite a big disadvantage and being tired as a result.
There was absolutely no reason for Lucario to win other than plot bullshit.
must you remind us of the horrid unspeakable region that must not be named anon? why must you torture us with this memory? you deserve a slap just like ash
I'd argue that a non-sexual interpretation is that it's a slower, more detailed version of Steamship Serena.
The girl's a romantic, so something like a slow dance with him is bound to get her more riled up than anything that he had done with her before, especially when she's not making it up in her head.
just imagine when ash places his arm and hand around her waist, and ends the dance holding her with his strong arms.
that, and she didn't feel ready to admit her feelings to ash yet. I'm also sure she feared that both bonnie and clemont would find out even though bonnie already knows, She wants to be alone with ash when the time is right.
id laugh my ass off if it were a fast paced dance. Ash would easily trip over. But they had to give him a chance of course and go with a nice slow close body contact dance. I can't stop smiling over the thought of that. God i just want to watch the episode now!!!
HOLY FUCKING SHIT LOOK AT ALL THAT STOCK FOOTAGE
LOOK AT ALL THOSE FUCKING SPEEDLINES
SAMUROTT WAS LITERALLY STANDING ON SPEEDLINES
BW really chibified everything and you can tell.
This was a little difficult to find a similar pose to, so I'm sorry that the other isn't winking, too.
good enough. super cute and she looks lovely. These are some of her best poses where she has looked her best. how about this one?
>implying the two wouldn't be able to keep pace with each other at a high beats per minute through both of their heartbeats racing at the same insane tempo from being that close to each other
The face shape is roughly the same in all three of those series, but BW's emphasis of the eyes trump's XY's and that made him feel more childlike. Big eyes are youthful features.
Given that they're talking about a public dance, unless she's imagining being an exhibitionist with Ash (unlikely given that she values here non-Ash modesty above her life when she falls off of cliffs), then it rather can't be sexual, now can it?
just checked out hainchus recent posts. my god she is a master. She knows how to make each character looks nice.
Trust me, one of her recent works are worse
She's trying to keep a (currently, at least) embarrassing idea to herself while the person that her mental idea revolves around is immediately next to her.
Basically, the same premise as the assumption of it being a sexual thought, just with the thought not being sexual but still not something she'd share publicly, especially not with the guy right next to her.
It way worse than she didn't even posted it on twitter or pixiv
She needs to be recalled during kalos league
Don't worry, no charge for her.
Serena will Dempsey Roll the living shit out of Millefeui in this episode and everybody will marvel at it.
>yfw she actually did ask him out first but he was reluctant, only for a second offer to be enough to convince him to join
>Serena is justifiably pissed with him
>Either through bribes or foresight, Ash knew that this is how he'd end up battling alongside Serena at the end of the party
>Ash declines Serena's invitation through honest lack of interest
>He's actually spending the entire scene with all three of them on camera looking at Serena, gauging her reactions to him accepting Millefeui's offer, to roughly estimate her thirstiness level to decide how he should approach her at the end of the episode and going forward, but showing his face would give all of this away too early
BW was a reboot of Pokémon Anime (series).
This is a Parallel timeline.
We are currently watching.
She probably asked him to the dance and he said yes.
Then Millefeui asked him to the dance he also said yes.
You know, Ash being Ash is oblivious to the fact that Serena wanted him for herself and just wanted to dance with all his friends.
