POKÉMON XY&Z CHARACTER SONG PROJECT VOL. 1:
I just want it over one way or another so the overactive shitposting can be over and we can go back to our tolerable levels of shitposting.
Also what was that song before the Stage Diary thing?
Also, who the fuck was that qt showing up on Pokenichi?
We waited over a month for this, let's hope it delivers.
>Also, who the fuck was that qt showing up on Pokenichi?
Nicole "Nicorun" Fujita, Rinka-chan's rival-of-sorts.
They've had this running subplot for a while with Rinka training for a rematch against her.
Oh great, shitposting for days.
Oh well, at least Dragonite girl is back
>in the most contrived way possible
Fuck this episode, fuck this series, fuck this life
Why do I even watch this predictable garbage.
Next Tripokalon is in Filler Town.
Millefeui says she wants to duel Serena in a Tripokalon next.
>no dance and all spaghetti given away
into the trash it goes
So Swanna Girl has a Cubchoo now (the Mime Je. is the other guy's since she was seen with just the Cubchoo later)
You all who thought Ash and Serena would get a dance, you were always kidding yourself, letting hope cloud your vision.
Then again, I suppose I'm guilty. I mean it was clear Serena was getting Sylveon, but I at least hoped someone else would get it, or it would not be a Sylveon. Watch, even it's whole personality magically changes.
This whole episode was predictable. All these episodes are fucking predictable.
Why the fuck do I even watch
(also who was the woman narrating the blue dress Pikachu? Sounds like a milfy type VA)
>no bonnie referring to the crush
>and just now Shota owns a fucking honedge
It's so fun to watch you guys get so caught up with the idea of a shipping hapenning/not hapenning. I'm enjoying the anime but popping in here every once in a while makes me laugh. Keep it up lads.
Why am I the only one who finds this hilarious? You got proof that Amour isn't dead; my prediction came true and I got a laugh out of it.
If anything, seeing Serena's reaction to this made me want Amour to happen since she deserves it now after all the suffering she's going through in the name of Omode.
Because Millefeui is not allowed to do anything but look smug and fail miserably.
She got destroyed hard by Sylveon alone while she had back up this episode.
Millefeuifags get fucked
>Why the fuck do I even watch
It's a children's show.
Not even a family show.
You're literally watching a show for children.
This should have gotten 2 episodes if it wanted to expand on the other characters. Would have been nice to show more dance battles, not to mention a good farewell to Millefeui for the episode.
>shota getting Honedge line
fucking hell of course they give the coolest Pokémon to the fucking rival. Ash might as well not go to the league at this point, he will obviously lose to Shota.
Ash deserves many things.
The "Sword of the Kings" is not one of them.
Her "suffering" is well deserved for not taking the initiative. This bitch starts following Ash solely because of a childhood 30-second encounter, and she can't even ask him to partner with her? Is she stupid?
So we can cross the honedge line out from Ashs potential captures.
What XY mons remain for not appearing so far?
Binacle, Bergmite, Clauncher are pretty much all that remain for the XY dex.
Was Bergmite fag right?
At least we got some sexy Elle out of it folks.
You guys actually thought Ash would get the Honedge? I know this show is fucking predictable, but Ash getting Hon was literally too shonen even for them to handle, and they went full shit execution on a Gary Stu connect evolution.
Ya'll are sad. You deserve to be punished for being stupid.
is there any other anime that manages to hit you in the nuts while you are down like pokemon just did?
He looked to have things pretty down pat later on, if I recall correctly.
Besides, that would have given lots of qt opportunities for Serena to not be mad at him even when he expects her to be.
At least this episode can't take this webm away from us.
>Serena's blatantly negative reactions towards the idea of settling for Citron
>Millefeui very proactive
>Cute headbutt scene, she doesn't even get mad at Ash
>it wasn't a hallucination, Serena clearly disappointed
>No dance, no discussion, no amour
>STILL watching Naruto, even if you're a die hard fan of the anime
Studio Pierrot will not let you see the end, why do you even bother following that non-canon shit for months on end for maybe 10 minutes of canon before starting all over again?
So. How does /vp/ rate this season overall in the series as a whole?
The first webm I'm going to ask from this episode is the reaction to being interrupted.
Ash's smile definitely vanished as shown in >>25096388, but I wasn't looking to see how far it would go.
It's because it was shameless bait that it was so good. And Amour isn't dead, proved by Serena's reaction.
I fucking told you guys that the focus of the episode would be the Tripokalon shit and this dance was only a warm up for the girls. You gotta exercise your grace and your style even between competitions.
Can anyone get me shots of the cute red megane in light blue dress?
Woah, I just stumbled on here from the front page. How long has Pokemon had animation looking this solid? I don't' remember this show looking this good.
serenafag pls, you well know you do pay hard cash to have seen Serena being the one who got headbutted
Honedge line would've been perfect for Ash, it just has so much potential for cool animation and moves. I guess we'll still see it at the league, only it will be to defeat Ash rather than help him win.
You are correct, of course.
I don't mind the extra canon in this case (or at least besides Tsunade's, that shit was drawn out as fuck), even though it's obvious space filling time.
But then again, why are we HERE?
Do you think you'll get to see an end here?
So again, what's going on here? Who's world is this?
Try harder, she won the other lottery. She had genuine connection moments with Ash. They stumbled through it gainfully like two early birds together.
im just filled with disappointment right now
sheer fucking disappointment. At least deitobowl gave us the ribbon
Is it wrong that I want to cum on her shoulders?
Aren't you just a tad?
We'll get over it soon enough, everything else was there. It's just Eevee was being a piece of shit mon again.
Fuck Eevee, hopefully Nymphia is less of a fucking disappointment.
I was the one who kept posting how Millefeui would get punched with jet engine sound effects
Serena would get points deducted too if she headbutted, you aren't meant to hit in any way apart from punching.
Their heads got a genuine "connection" alright
Oh and points deducted from Ash for the headbutt too.
Hey look, this scene from the first OP is real now.
This is your punishment for leaving your love to die so easily. This is your fate, and you deserve every second of it.
No, they can't take that away. No they can't...
I know Ash can't dance, but Serena could have done the counting thing she was doing with Clemont after she snapped out of her initial love shock.
>"The reunion battle with Shota"
>"Satoshi, that's awesome! You've just fused with Gekkouga!"
>"Eh? Er-... "fused"? Eh I don't know..."
>"Would you show it to me once again?"
>"Eh? You are...?"
Seriously all of Ash's Ookemon are ones they can give a fun and expressive personality to. How the FUCK would they ever do that for a creature with only one eye?
Honedge isn't just not an Ash Pokemon, he's not even a main character Pokemon
Alain's Mega Charizard X VS Ash's Mega Charizard Y when
The difference between Pokémon anime and Naruto anime is that the Pokémon anime goes for a designated end at each league and then has a soft reboot every time. Everybody knows that. With the Naruto anime, anyone who gives even the slightest shit about Naruto at all have known how the series ends for a couple of years already, so there is no reason at all to follow the anime if it's not gonna make a rush to the end.
That, and the XY anime is just a better produced show. Madara vs. Guy might've been one of the most hyped moments before it aired, but once it did, everyone knew for sure that the Naruto anime had nothing left to give.
I think Omode confirmed that she's going to write just cute episodes.
We'll be getting to syncro scenes in one episode so I don't expect it to have extended times. Maybe more facial reactions slipped in with it, but nothing entirely new.
Shota is destined to beat Ash, I don't want to except it, but it's going to happen. The student surpassing the master is a common theme in anime and that's what Shota is built up to be.
I'm hearing that apparently, after the dance stopped, Ash asked Serena what she thought of the dance and she replied that she wanted to do more, so the message was at least sent in some capacity if it's true.
Given that Serena changes her look in one episode via something she was given in the previous episode, you can bet on there being continuity across at least two episodes with the series being broken in half down the middle.
>Alain uses Mega Charizard X because "MUH EDGE!"
>Ash tells him that he is not living his life correctly.
>Alain has a change of heart, now he uses Mega Charizard Y.
Only way I see Charizard Y getting in the anime.
>the same hit that sent Sceptile flying and destroying the wall only made Charizard's head move a little
Elle said "this girl" and Nymphia were wonderful, and Yashio said that was unusual for her to say about someone, then said she had found "someone" too, someone that resembled how Elle used to be.
Neither of them were aware of the fact that they were talking about the same person.
Yup! Fucking confirmed about Serena leaving before gen 7.
Well guys, enjoy amour as much as you can still.
Millefeui will fail miserably in the next TriPokalon episode.
She won't even get second place just like she didn't last time.
Gen 7 confirmed, serena leving
Here's how it will end:
>Serena will confess to Ash
>Shortly after, Elle or Yoshio will offer her the position of Kalos Queen
>Ash will talk her into not wasting the opportunity
>Ash and Serena will hug goodbye
>Ash will leave and Serena will stay as Kalos Queen
Best we can hope for is more Tripokalons in the next series with Serena coming to some shit as the Kalos representative.
Screencap this post.
I'm thinking the same thing. It just won't be possible to top this series. Ash is being built up to be a legend, he'll defeat Alan and cement himself as someone who will be able to stand up to the Elite Four. To have him lose to a rookie trainer who is given Mega Evolution just so that they can reset Ash would be to much for me.
XY is my endgame for the anime, I'm hoping for a Kalos League win. But all the same I know exactly what the end result will be.
This is either our darkest hour right here, or just the beginning....
>Next week's Pokemon episode is "Satoshi and Serena! Getting One at a Dance Party!!", an episode I wrote. It's going to have kind of fancy dresses all girls wants to wear, as well as ballroom dancing with partners, etc. But that's not all...? With that said, please enjoy.
...it's not much of value, really.
JUST AS YOU ARE GETTING OVER THE NO BEING A DANCE THEY SHOW OFF HONEDGE BEING OWNED BY FUCKING SHOTA WTF IS THIS SHIT? HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO ENJOY THE RIDE WHEN YOU ARE DRIVING CACTUS UP MY ASS SENPAI? GET THIS SHIT OUT OF HERE
>Elle said "this girl" and Nymphia were wonderful, and Yashio said that was unusual for her to say about someone, then said she had found "someone" too, someone that resembled how Elle used to be.
>Neither of them were aware of the fact that they were talking about the same person.
Yashio wanna be Serena's tutor (?) Amour RIP
Yashio dreams with a "new young-Elle"
Elle -> 14/16
Serena -> 10
Stalebaiter was right AGAIN about today's episode
And you were fucking wrong AGAIN
I truly have meme powers!
And be prepared! Because the dank prophe cy!
is still to come
I was right and you were wrong
>Millefeui winning anything at all
>failed in the pokepuff contest
>failed TriPokalon without even getting second place
>got completely shitted on in a battle and only managed to do anything due to taking her opponents by surprise
>failed at dancing with Ash
>failed to give him a good time
Anything else I miss?
Z still has to come out.
It will probably come out this year.
Which means gen 7 is not sooner than 2017
we've still got entire year.
Keep faithful brothers and sisters, this still can happen...
I can't stop laughing at how assblasted the lot of you are.
I've told you in one capacity or another so many times how things would happen. Shouted down about "how you don't understand". Nearly all my warnings, all my messages to you, they keep falling on deaf ears.
I'm one of the man prophets multiple times over, but you never learn.
I told you guys Ash wasn't getting Honedge. "Muh perfect pokemon for Ash!" "Ash will totally get it, it fits him!" "It's symmetry!". I told you there were some depths they would not sink to, and going so shonen was one of them. Mind you this is the same show which made a MUH SPECIAL CONNECTION Evolution just to be "badass". Just like I told you also that Eevee's evolution would be contrived, and forced.
But even I didn't know how much of a shit they would make Eevee beforehand, and I actually gave them credit there would be something small this time around. Nothing overt like so many were predicting, but perhaps a comfy night scene. But not even that.
The lesson here is to expect nothing. To hope nothing. That way you cannot be disappointed.
If you wish to continue down this path, I wish you merry way, and may your hearts continue to break. Only then will you learn.
Blast Burn might not KO Gekkouga but severely weaken it and terribly hurt Satoshi in the process. Then Alan and the others notice but Alan is called right at the moment where he tries to figure out what is happening and he has to go, promising to finish things some other day. And Gekkouga will flee from Satoshi after making him suffer that much.
Ash is a 10 year old boy. He doesn't give a shit about dancing and trying on cloths. He'd rather be out doing what he does best, battling and having a blast with his pals.
Millefeui dragging him around just showed that he was a standard male protagonist who doesn't particularly care about the same interests as girls.
>Best we can hope for is more Tripokalons in the next series
>Next Series have Tripokaons
>New Gen7-girl is also Performer
>Serena is trying to win title of Johto Queen participating in Johto Rookie Class tripokalons
Most possible scenario
I don't think Ash will get swordmon but not because of that stupid philosophical shit. I just think it doesn't fit him because it's slow.
With that said I don't get why people are complaining about amour, the episode is full of that shit.
I'm not talking about dancing or trying on clothes (although even then you're wrong since he actively suggested accompanying Serena when she tried on clothes), I'm talking about being pulled by the arm.
>why people are complaining about amour
Because we expected something to happen that was at least a little worth all of the torment they put us/Serena through. All we got was Sylveon.
Did they ever explain what the purpose of the battle was?
This episode, 16 and 19/20 confuse me. I guess Serena will participate in this filler town Tripokalon in episode 16, but then what could a Sylveon episode be about if not a Tripokalon? Especially since the next one is Delphox, implying Elle. I doubt the Master Class will be in Snowbelle, it's way too soon.
only idiots would expect more
honestly this episode gave amour, too bad there are idiots (and possibly shitposters/falseflaggers) here
they pulled the same shit back in "date?"
with that said Ash and Serena got so much comfy scenes together and the crush is reminded and reinforced, I'm not sure what else you guys are asking for
they need to set their expectations
It's all shit that pretty much already happened before though
For pretty much any other ship this would be a fantastic episode but we've already gone far and beyond the limits wih amour.
Plus in the date episode there was a ribbon. We expected there to be a dance and got zilch
>told them Serena would dance with Clemont
You're delusional stale,
>told them he would dance with Millefeui
>told them Ash wouldn't dance with Serena
The preview fucking told you stale
>Right again all along
It was fucking one sided, fucking again. When the fuck are you going to learn?
To all Amourfags, I wish to say this for now.
When the new region comes about, and Serena does not go with, I know many of you will become the new Pokeshippers. But please, try to limit the autism rages. If there are only a few Pokeshippers V2 after the end of this, we can contain the shit, and exist in the new season, with the new girl.
I hope the new girl is someone amazing, so at least the majority of you will ditch Serena in a heartbeat, just like you ditched for Serena.
And then, we can exist onwards as we have. Sure there will be the frequent autistic spaz rages from in denial Amourshippers, but they shall die off too, in time. In the end, we'll be left with a few hardcores who will retreat to their own special forum, where they will wage the forever war with Pokeshippers.
And all will move on.
