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 XY&Z CHARACTER SONG PROJECT VOL. 1:
>yfw Ash will dance with best girl confirmed
could be the episode or it could be the movie
All right anons, get ready to pay up for subs. Here's some homo for Sushi
>Attendant: "Sorry, couples only."
>Ash: "... We are a couple, though!"
>Attendant: "Then why id your girlfriend over here freeze as if this was news to her?"
>Serena: [stuttering from nervousness, but fast to make up an excuse] "W-we're a couple, I s-swear, I'm j-j-just cold!"
>Attendant: "Alright, then, if you two were really a couple before 10 seconds ago, prove it."
Gee, I wonder who could be behind this post.
>"We will, but YOU have to watch to the last second"
>"we might be here a while"
>Attendant's face when he doesn't get paid enough for this shit
Speaking of homo, it's almost time for a different brand of it.
>"Beware of the color gold."
>last episode of the series
>Ash and the others are on the cliff overlooking Lumiose City one final time
>suddenly, the gold-covered Ho-oh flies by
>Ash is left speechless, gets distracted and falls down the cliff
>Floette flutters off to be carried away in the wind with its fellow Floette
>Breloom remains ass-mad and overflows with salt
>Noibat understands the situation and is happy for Floette
Ash and Serena must have raised Noibat so well and Luchabro must have been a really good hermano to him.
How about no?
>he tries so hard but still fails because it's too stale
Only the very best can look adorable and badass at the same time.
But if it's Serena or Amour related you'll be glad to do it. Fucking faggot.
"Team Flare are a superstitous and cowardly lot, Tio Lucha. And I can't beat them as a Noibat. As a Noibat I could be captured, I could faint. But as a Noivern... I can be undefeatable... I can be everlasting."
He was initially sad though.
They get told to stop it as well.
Problem stems from those that do it with the intention of shitposting.
But he didn't STAY sad. He cheered up right away while Breloom continued to feel ass-raped and betrayed.
And if Floette didn't have to leave, she already indicated that she preferred Noibat. So basically the episode ended with Breloom being totally destroyed.
Why did this guy look important?
Nah, they'd never work out. That guy doesn't understand defeat, as he keeps winning those sky relays. He'd never be able to sympathize with Swanna girl, who knows nothing but defeat.
>Ash finally notices her blushing but mistakes it for a fever or some other sickness
>"Serena, your face has been burning up all week! You need to eat!"
>The premise of Ash feeding her only makes her blush harder
>As she blushes harder, Ash insists on doing more things for her, which just creates a feedback loop
>this gets recorded for PokeVision and played for everyone to see
>everyone sees them and how happy they are with one another
>all of Kalos ships them
Clemont pls, this isn't even the tip of ice berg.
>"I'll have the bath and dinner. You're last. It's best to save the best for last after all."
I cut the pages together so if someone wants to translate it's all on one image.
>I liRe being cucRoled
>this actually happens before he extends his hand again
Also hasn't Serena spilled enough spaghetti to open up her own Italian restaurant?
Huh? I wasn't staling. I was referring to the tears of those who thought Ash and Serena weren't going to happen and the damage control of the Pokeshippers and the like. Fuck this place is bad when everything is considered a form of bait or shitpost.
Yeah, how about you stop posting shit like that?
Thats why they have jannies come here. They amourfaggots don't want their feelings hurt when people say Ash and Serena aren't going to be together. I'm pretty sure the janitors get very tired of having to deal with amourfaggots whining about mean people not liking their shipping so they just delete stuff to shut them up. I'm not on either side, my main hope is to see if Ash wins the league, and I'd rather not get caught up in amourshippers autism. But that's just me
I remember some people bitched about the previews spoiling the cute scenes from the date episode.
Thats what they got for being impatient bitches instead of wait until the real deal
Are you seriously pretending or are you just that stupid?
Having an opinion is one thing. Constantly spamming the same shit that isn't true and trying to pass it off as fact or opinion is a whole other thing. Please tell me you're just pretending and you're not that blind in seeing what was actually the case and why jannies clear that out.
>almost everything in this thread is baiting if you dont like something others like.
You're the same guy that went around saying people call opinions they don't like 77 IQ, aren't you?
Because that's bullshit.
Guys, instead of getting caught up in all this meta-talk, can we just fugging discuss the anime, what you want from the next episode, or the Alan episode, or what you want from the upcoming episodes that we only have data broadcast info for?
This is starting to get a bit much. Why can't everyone just chill and stop being so shit. If you're either accusing someone or being the shitposter, whatever, just stop. Some anon worded something wrong and people took it the wrong way and now everyone is to blame.
>>25079546 this guy gets it.
I just want to see some consequences to taking burn blast to the face.
>or what you want from the upcoming episodes
Serena and Ash singing in a tripokalon
Satomi and Clemont singing a duet of KiraKira together fucking when?
There you have it folks. Even if Serena doesn't actually dance with Ash in the episode, you at least have this.
LIVE WITH THAT.
>Even if Serena doesn't actually dance with Ash
>if Serena doesn't actually dance with Ash
You know damn well they're going to blow the fucking budget on the two of them dancing together.
What if they're birth marks?
What if one of her parents is a Mightyena?
If only she'd speak in the upcoming episode...
Its funny how back then i was mad about how mightyena gal just showed until the end because eevee, and now...
Feels so good
Now i feel sorry about other peoples waifus not getting enough screen-time as well
Are you though? For all we know, mightyena girl has a chance of getting a voice and being in the finals.
it's a furfrou thing
>the thread devolves into waifu wars over Swanna girl and Mightyena girl
Now if only pic related showed up on the dance party as well
She is way too perfect to remain unnamed
Might have to do with her dancing with Ash. Then Swanna girl does, then every other girl does. Then shit happens during the dance and every Tripokalon becomes a spaghettifest backstage with all the girls talking about Serena and Ash.
>Piss off, stale.
is that stale?
He's been here, but he's just not baiting as aggressively as he did before.
Anyhow, I miss Limone, Alexa and Sexymore.
He's been around, he's just been posting in other ways now.
>she remains unnamed until the next TriPokalon segment
Come to think of it, they're probably going to show it again this week, aren't they?
I think he's realized that whatever bait he pulls out it always gets shot down by the anime canon
that or he's actually doing something productive with his life, probably charity work or something, cleaning up trash, stuff like that
poor Swanna Girl
The general consensus is she doesn't really like Ash, but rather flirts with him just to troll Serena so that she can make a move.
Blanche. She or a girl with hair just like hers appears in the background during the New Year's special.
>implying he doesn't sparkle sparkle sparkle
Can't imagine a scenario and have it go in slow-motion and not knowing the clothes.
What you're seeing is reality.
Ash is as happy to dance with Serena as she is with him.
>yfw I just realized Mightyena girl is sticking out her tongue in pic related
So... how was the reaction about this scene, here in /padt/?
I catch up with /padt/ at the end of the korrina arc.
We knew of that scene during the weeks before XY premiered. There was a lot of intrigue about the first real romantic subplot in Pokemon, and how Serena was basically the first girl to meet Ash.
There was a few theories about how their first meeting would be, whether or not Ash would recognize her (and how he'd spend the series trying to remember), etc.
As for reactions to when that scene aired, I recall people wondering what happened after Ash led her back to camp, which is a question still unanswered. The general consensus though is that it's a cute scene, and the reason behind their "don't give up until the very end" motto.
>they don't let you forget about those scenes
>that's why they put it on the Pokemon booth in lights
>them even putting it in the booth was all a part of Tomioka's plan to stealthily continue it to have it go further
I was able to calculate that they're moving at somewhere between 90 and 100 beats per minute (the former assuming that each step takes 10 frames, the latter assuming each step takes 9 frames; there are instances of both in the gif).
At 155 beats per minute, the game's version of the Laverre City music is too fast for it, but it manages to fall on the slower end of the most common waltz tempos, so there's by no means a lack of music you can easily set this to.
... That and I think the anime's version of the music is slower, so that might be worth a shot.
I don't know if I should be amazed by the autism or not.
>Ash agrees to go on an actual, legitimate date with Serena
>They tell Bonnie and Clemont that they'll be back just as soon as their date is over
>It's an entire week before they ever get seen again
>My captcha was for pasta and noodles
So it's Ash vs Shota -> TR -> Alan gets involved -> Ash vs Alan? Makes sense as a transition honestly. They wouldn't fill up an entire episode with just two immediately consecutive one-on-ones.
>Ash and Shota reunite and have a battle
>Ash-Greninja transformation happens during the battle
>Team Rocket attacks Ash and the gang while they're at the Pokemon Center
>Eventually one of them answers
>"Well, we went to eat dinner... and then saw a movie, went to the carnival, sat on a bench and talked for a while, before heading up to the cliff that overlooks the town to enjoy the view, we camped out up there
even though only one of us had a sleeping bag on us, then when we woke up the next morning we walked and talked over to the next city over, and...."
>It takes roughly an hour or two just to list how they kept doing date-like things, but it took them a week to stop
>They eventually forgot it was supposed to be a date
>On Day 5 of of the "date", Ash won his last gym battle
>It was only well after they walked out that they remembered that they completely ditched Clemont and Bonnie
>They have a brief argument whether they should even go back to get them
>It takes two days of walking to get back to the town Clemont and Bonnie were left in
>A bowl of soup gets prepared for when Ash wakes up, under the assumption that it'll help him feel better
>Ash is eventually healed up enough to be awake, but he's still feeling too weak to raise his arms
>We get treated to a healthy course of spaghetti as Ash asks Serena to spoon feed him the soup
Part of me can't wait until the dance episode is over and done with so we get a reduction in the amount of autistic greentext stories.
>it becomes a constant thing every time Ash-Greninja takes him out
>Ash gets so used to it even when he's perfectly fine he wants Serena to feed him
>Clemont tells them "go blow up you lovey-dovey couple"
Adamant is awake:
>Having reunited with Shota, Ash has a battle with him. However, during the battle, Ash's Greninja once again has its form undergo a transformation. And then, the next morning, when Ash and his friends get attacked by Team Rocket, they get saved by...
>Having reunited with Shota, Ash immediately asks for a battle with him. During the battle, Ash's Greninja once again has its form undergo a transformation. Not knowing the cause of all this, Team Rocket attack the Pokemon Center where Ash and his friends are resting.
>As Ash and his friends reunite with Shota, Shota immediately gets challenged to a battle. But as the two start their battle, a change appears in Ash's Grenina's form. Questioning why this happens, Ash and the others visit the Pokémon Center. But the next morning, they get attacked by Team Rocket and Pikachu gets in deep trouble.
>Just what did Team Rocket encounter!?
>As Team Rocket continue keeping their watch on Ash and his friends, they stumble their way into confrontation with Team Flare, a group operating in secret in the Kalos region. And as Team Rocket continue investigating Team Flare, they encounter a mysterious creature that looks just like Squishy.
>Team Rocket have stumbled their way into confrontation with Team Flare. Having run into a mysterious creature that looks just like Squishy, they plot to capture it and send it to Giovanni.
Yes, it's in the preview pic with Charizard carrying Pikachu.
TR is going to be pissed when he shows up again in the following episode allowing Team Flare to capture the blue core.
>protagonist one episode
>villain the next
Oh shit, they're actually going to set it up so that Ash and Alan are on friendly terms at the start so that the eventual Team Flare reveal will be dramatic when Alan finally goes after Puni + makes Bonnie cry.
>noibat will be replaced by noivern in this scene
Ash's kalos team looks so fucking good. Can any other team really compare?
ORETACHI WA MOTTO MOTTO TSUYOKU
Nothing wrong with facial marks or some friendly competition, anon
>go blow up you lovey dovey couple
Where the fuck does this come from?
It doesn't need to be, it's self explanatory. It's another anime figure set like the candy sets that used to come out and it is set for March. The Pokemon in the set are Zard X, Pikachu, Goodra, Ash-Greninja, Gourgeist, Sylveon, Noivern, and Audino.
>Millefeui's face when next episode
>"Pocket Monsters Get Collections Candy: Kalos League Edition:
>The figure lineup is connected to the new anime arc. Of particular note in this luxury lineup is "Satoshi Gekkouga", which has received a lot of exposure in the anime and is very popular among boys, Zygarde, which holds the key to the story, and Mega Lizardon X, which has become really popular thanks to a new character. The set contains the following 10 figures: Satoshi Gekkouga, Mega Lizardon X, Pikachu, Onvern, Numelgon, Zygarde, 10% Zygarde, Pumpjin, Tabunne and Nymphia."
Literally nothing. We have broadcast data through March and nothing that indicates any Ice type Pokemon at all, meaning that by that point Ash won't even be at the final gym, much less the league.
Numelgon, on the other hand, means great gooey things
>We get an Opening update to include Sylveon and Noivern.
yfw Goodra is also in the back of the group shot in the beginning.
>rambo will finally be in a group shot
it doesn't have anything to do with Goodra but the fact that people still believe Charizard Y for Ash is still a possibility.
Not better but "cleaner" since X has the influence of coming from Lysandre. From a visual point of view as well, Y literally summons light when it appears. Eclipse VS the Sun. Redemption and shit.
its not about which is better but in a sense Charizard X was the start of Alan being deceived him giving up that power and then discovering a power of his own would make a neat story in my opinion.
>mfw that anon couldn't even understand basic storytelling concepts like redemption, source of power, etc.
I think Charizard Y will appear since it did appear in the merch along with the anime mons (with a random Mudkip) and why people think there's a possibility it might be Ash's.
I think it'll be Alan's post redemption though. I kinda want him to have a rematch with Siebold using Y.
Keep in mind, the anime is and always has been based around promoting things in the franchise. Why would you suddenly start marketing an inferior version of Mega Charizard as the "light version" when you've been putting all the focus on the other Mega Charizard? I mean I get the redemption story you're conveying but a light version of something in a show is usually the cooler one. This is a show for kids after all.
It hasn't happened yet because that's going to be the thing that sets off a reaction that leads to HAPPENING.
>Somebody comments about them being a couple
>Serena just silently blushes, folds her hands together in front of herself, and smiles
>Ash: "We're not a..."
>Ash looks back at Serena without finishing his thought
>Ash: "... Hmm"
>It leads to Ash thinking about her in a new context
>It paves the way for moments in future episodes to have true ramen, more on par with Serena's spaghetti than anything we've seen before
It's still Charizard mate. They even have a statue of it on their Tokyo branch and it's the co-mascot there representing the megas. It's on the cover of PMD and at the center too. X may have gotten a lot of focus but it's not like they're pretending Y doesn't exist ala Raichu.
To clarify what I meant, they're not pretending that Charizard Y doesn't exist because they actually do promote him but just less than X. Raichu in comparison doesn't get any love. The poor little bastard.
Nothing special. I like their motto and seriousness.
Better than fillers, when they steal something.
It's not weak, his previous trainer is dick.
Poor little thing didn't deserve being discarded like that.
Her voice is %%sexy%%
I can already see the pose of all the pokemon in the beginning of the opening
