She was a character from G1 that didnt had a place in Ash neverending journey through the following Gens.
Ash was pretty cool giving her bike back.
Pikachu is the biggest cock-blocker in recorded history. No girl gets near his Satoshi on his watch. It doesn't matter which series or whichever girl attempts to get close, as soon as things start going in that direction, Pikachu is right there to be the center of Satoshi's world.
Every girl in PokeWorld is getting NTR'd by a little yellow rat.
Because that's fanart. The only things that can happen to ash are him getting with serena since her crush is canon,or ash becomes champion and travels the world after denying the position but keeping the title,or ash dies as originally planned in pic related. Maybe before gen 5 I'd say he could end up with misty,but it looks like she's been paired off with Tracey
Unfortunately, since the games are a success and they spawned more sequels, if you could ever call them that, there's no stopping it. And it's a kids show, so running for a long time is a given.
Deleted scene from the original trailer for the Mewtwo movie. The original plot involved ash dying and pic related is just a scene of a time skip where the future is peaceful. The lady with blue hair and the little girl are just OC characters of some idols in japan,the movies tend to add characters like that
A trailer for the first movie that has the third ending song in the background and Misty saying there'll be a movie, with Misty and animated versions of the singers of the ending walking around to match the audio.
Dubfag shippers assumed that the kid is Misty's, so they show up now and then to make their retardedness known by claiming that it's proof Ash was supposed to end up with Misty.
>Deleted scene from the original trailer for the Mewtwo movie. The original plot involved ash dying and pic related is just a scene of a time skip where the future is peaceful.
look mom, I'm le trolling the 4chinz
Nope,I can't find shit on it actually except for a bunch of poke shipping crap where people think it's ash and misty' daughter. All I can really say is that it's kind of weird for pikachu to be alone without ash. I know I've heard about ash dying somewhere though. Guess I might be wrong
well for one many years have gone by and satoshi seems to still be the same age, despite his rival now being a full grown adult with a job
he seems to be stuck in a time loop, he may actually be in a coma just dreaming about his adventures in the hospital
>Dubfag shippers assumed that the kid is Misty's, so they show up now and then to make their retardedness known by claiming that it's proof Ash was supposed to end up with Misty.
Misty who is 20-25 years and she already has a baby a 5-8 year
why is this allowed?
Misty was originally axed from the show for good simply because May became more popular as a female companion as Hoenn was airing, and it made the writers realize they didn't have to bother bringing Misty back. So they gave her a few cameos to wrap up her character and after that they were done with her.
Had May not been successful at replacing Misty, we might have seen Misty return the same way Brock did and last a really long time...probably till BW.
Well what other reason would there be? The writers certainly didn't know back in 2002 they were going to bring in a new female companion every series, or if the anime could continue on without Misty who was in every single episode up to that point.
The writers based Misty's fate entirely on how May was received as her replacement. May became incredibly popular, the Contests were the most popular addition to the show, so Misty was phased out over the course of Hoenn.
There's a reason why Misty hasn't had a cameo in an entire decade since 2005 which was when the Hoenn arc ended.
She is among the top girls like Dawn and long hair Serena.
I can't believe it took me reading random moonrunes on a Jojo x Pokemon pic for me to make this connection. Jesus Christ...
I'm more surprised that we're in the year 2015 and people still don't know why Misty was permanently dropped from the anime 13 years ago back in 2002.
Even if people haven't watched the anime in a decade, this is still all common knowledge.
Is this another Jojo pose?
Misty fans on forums/deviantart are so bitter about Serena it amuses me greatly. Its like their worst fears since May was introduced has come true. A new girl with a huge crush on Ash "stealing him away from Misty" as they put it.
Last time Ash went back to Pallet Town after leaving Unova, he asked Professor Oak where Tracey was and he answered Misty had invited him to her gym. That's the last we've heard of either of them since then.
And don't forget when Ash came home from Battle Frontier and DP, Misty wasn't there either time and Ash didn't even care either.
Misty hasn't even appeared in an episode in literally 10 years since 2005 when Ash came home from the Hoenn league. Her final episode was AG134.
take it you never watched Chronicles
Tracey visits Misty's hot sister
May hasn't been seen since like 2008
and Misty still appeared in more episodes total and thanks to a Charizard recaps in Da! cameo'd recently
May is Dead, Dawn is Dead, Misty is Dead, Iris is on life support, Serena has a Rain Check to be dead in 4-5 years
Is this the most iconic pair to ever be introduced and never develop into anything?
You know how anime always portrays the first, main or childhood heroines to win the bowl. But Pokemon is such a big hit and it amounted to nothing. Sure that wasn't the focus of the anime but...
Also Green x Blue is my OTP.
I know which one you're talking about. Trying to find it.
>Ash is completely casual about it
Pikachu's only looking for the right girl for him.
No, Ash's Pikachu is male. Female Pikachu have an indentation on their tail.
They were meant to, but then the producers realised, holy fuck this is popular, so it got delayed and forgotten about. Last I heard, some other girl has replaced Misty as a love interest.
Can you believe there were people who started online petitions to get Misty back? Despite the fact that these were all Americans who thought they could somehow convince a Japanese anime company to bring back a character who also advertises nothing from the latest games?
American Misty fans are delusional.
>be 12 years old
>have Internet in the house for the first time
> finally have this miracle of technology at my fingertips!
>use it almost exclusively to fight with other people about over pokeshipping vs rivalshipping vs gymshipping
What a time to be alive...
>be 12 years old
That's part is likely wrong since people around were likely twelve when those shows aired. What you're watching is worse, you're watching adults with 12 years old minds shitflinging about some chinese cartoons for kids.
I'll watch that all day long
>You were expecting Brock, but It was me, GARY !
>Na-ni? Pikachu go !
don't know why but that pic is pissing me off
It's terrible when you add tsundere bits.
I remember when I was 8 and had religion classes, the teacher said that pokemons are spawn of satan, and they stand for pocket MONSTERS, because they are meant to eat away all of the money from your pockets.
doesn't matter it was part of the show.
then i don't get why he didn't understand what was going on. The orange island stuff. come on ash
i stop watching pokemon a long time ago is she some new character?
New girls for XY, Eureka on the left (sidekick's imouto), Serena on the right (childhood friend status, first girl to be officially shipped with Satoshi).
>That was all dub propaganda my son.
>doesn't matter it was part of the show.
That's just it. A good portion of what you'd call signals were made by the dub and wasn't there in the original.
Because Sana is in every way better than that whore Misty
Is it because her shorts aren't shorts but rather denim panties?
you must had watch some other pokemon series. because Misty was giving out signs and Ash was all hurr durr derp
it was how it was aired in the US. so only that matters to me. i don't care how the Japanese show was different. Like who cares if US version of power rangers was different.
Spats are better than shorts
Those companions were boring, the other characters okay and Dawn's cameo made it a little better
Do you think Ash will ever gently walk a girl home?
How gently we talking about here? >>132454014 or across logs?
>yfw you realize they made up names for every ship possible
Will Ash ever be a pokemon master?
Misty has no fashion sense, there I said it.
>You will never be held to your trainer's young yet huge chest
May was a better tomboy
but Ash doesn't like any of these girls. Latias is where is at.
Who hasn't made love to a pokemon yet?
He said screw Latias and went for Fennekin instead.
Pikachu Thunder Shocked the sprinklers in the gym that broke them and had water flying everywhere, Onix got weakened, shit happened with Brock's siblings, Ash quit the match, but Brock gave him the badge anyway before asking to join him.
The only good one was Blaine
I don't think she is even wearing pants in that one.
Ash is the only one who actually knows if she does or not. Every other shot she holds down her skirt.
That is some interesting taste
>Tripokalon perfomer with Meowstic
Until she gets voiced I'm indifferent towards her.
Also, I haven't watched Pokemon since August.
>Until she (and all the other Performers aside from Millefeui, Shauna, and Nene) get voiced I'm indifferent towards her.
Your girl is good but this is in fact the best girl
Harapeko, genki, and oppai
She was lewd, probably the best non-main girl in a long time.
Still can't beat my childhood waifu
Most people on /a/ watched the dub when they were kids, no the subbed japanese versions. That's why people are going to talk about the version they watched.
Also most moved on from pokemon anime later down the years rather than keep up, as this thread shows.
It has been a while
I read the summary of the filler episodes unless it has a cute character in it or a good battle. I watch plot episodes like gym matches for the story
When she become more feminine in these episodes it was the best.
The movie version is better.
Holy fucking shit, newfag mod is out of control.
Without any facetiousness whatsoever, Pokemon is a commercial.
It objectively isn't' by any standard in any way shape and form. You should be permanently banned for saying that a non-shitpost is a shitpost.
Pokemon is a commercial.
We agree it's a commercial.
We've discussed it being a commercial.
We've said it's a commercial countless times.
Where the fuck do you get off trying to say that critiquing a series is a shitpost?
I'm not mad at pokemon, anon. I'm mad that people think that calling a show that primarily exists to advertise a game a "commercial" is a shitpost, when it objectively isn't.
>nor is "it's a commercial" a critique
Yes, it is. In what Bizarro World do you live in where that isn't a critique?
It's a criticism of the show for throwing aside character development and ongoing plot in order to stay on the air and advertise new Pokemon as the games continue to be released.
Pokemon isn't the only anime we call a commercial, but it's one of the worst offenders.
Serena and Pikachu have been choosing what Pokeball to catch Ash in.
Will she ever make a cameo?
Who dresses like this?
Isn't May technically an oppai loli? A 10 year old in canon who has huge breasts and looks like a teenager?
>le loli is a bodytype meme
Because that shipping only existed in the dub, they literally changed lines that had nothing to do with romance to force their bullshit ship that didn't exist whatsoever in the first place. Hope you're enjoying your 4kids nostalgia goggles.
That depends. If pic related was stated to be ten years old, they still aren't a loli. Oppai Loli is a variant of the loli bodytype that is still considered loli because they're otherwise underdeveloped, with the exception of their chest. We don't have a word for "loli with big hips" besides Elin, but that too is a valid variant. Contextual age is immaterial to the classification.
Reminder of who won the /vp/ pokegrill poll.
Hell, she even calls her Pokemon her steadies.
I dunno, Elin are a weird category that don't seem to work well with loli, imo. Their lore says they're born/created fully adult, just small and with universally small breasts. They 'look' like lolis, but their hips are developed and they're adults.
Basically they're Australia bait.
Their lore is utterly irrelevant. They have the loli body type (explicitly), but are a variant because their hips are developed, much in the same way that oppai loli is a variant in that it's a loli with a developed chest.
If you want a better argument, try discussing whether or not Oppai lolo of "Hippy loli" should even be referred to as lolis in the first place. Personally I find the imagery close enough that it's fine to have those as subcategories of loli, but at the end of the day, it's better just to look at the subject as a collection of parts, then mix and match the elements that you find attractive.
Pokeshippers tend to transfer their hate to whoever the current main girl is.
For example first they all hated May for "replacing Misty" but then over time they realized they liked May and shipped her with Drew.
Then they all hated Dawn and saw her as a bland girly girl, and they tried to pair her with Paul for some reason.
Misty fans didn't mind Iris because she's the closest to Misty of all the girls.
Now Misty fans hate Serena for her obvious huge crush on Ash and that she's another girly girl.
Misty fans are crazy.
So do we all agree that she is the best girl?
Dawn > long hair Serena > May
In that order, they are far above the rest of the girls.
I would agree with those and add these two as well
That is fine too
Why not both?
Everybody did, and it was pretty sad to see the team break up but Brock stayed with the team for a long time and we got all these other girls. If the anime had done what the games did, we would have a new team every generation
> Everyone using the American dub version character names
Holy shit, are you all faggots?
Has no one here actually seen the Japanese version of the original series?
This 2015, everything is on Nyaa. You all have zero excuse. Stop being faggots and watching bastardized American shit.
Which gang is the best?
>even having to ask
She is only the second most adorable baddie
She is not for lewding
She had a lot of good episodes
She sure did
Jessie was cute this episode.
Way too much, just look through episode guides and watch the ones you want. Most of the episodes are filler so aren't missing much. XY is a lot better though
Skip to XY.
Here's the airing order pasta:
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)
Complete Overview! Pocket Monsters XY Special!!
Best Wishes Season 2 Decolora Adventure Special - Iris VS Ibuki! The Road to Dragon Master!!
The Strongest Mega Evolution Act I
Movie 17 Guide
Movie 17 Premiere Special with TV Special
XY Movie 1 Short
XY Movie 1
The Strongest Mega Evolution Act II
New Year's Eve 2014 Super Mega Special
The Strongest Mega Evolution Act III
Movie 18 OVA
Movie 18 Appear! Special
(XY Movie 2 Short and XY Movie 2 go here, but they're theater-only for now)
Watch DP and XY, there are like 850 episodes total now so it takes a while to watch it all.
>all these people calling Satoshi "Ash"
Since when is this acceptable?
Was it rape?
Ya I know it's an outdated version I don't feel like updating
This one was pretty solid, nothing better than watching two bored gym leaders doing "that" with each other
Serena is the best waifu for Ash, but in terms of active female companions with battles, stories, etc. May and Dawn were handled the best.
Serena got very little screentime for the first 50 or so XY episodes.
You on the wrong side of town
I don't even know what Mistyfags see in her. I'm half-convinced that literally the only reason they like her so much is because she was the first. That's it. Not for any actual merit on her part, just the fact that she was first.
Kanto-era Misty was funny but that's cause the show was written like a wacky comedy back then.
Once the anime had to become a show where characters develop Misty's character stagnated and became pointless. One of the main reasons Johto was rather boring was because of Misty.
Her design is goat. Daisy dooks, suspenders, tiny ass tank that shows her belly, that cute half-pig tail, converse sneakers and she cute as fuuuck
>that episode where she's hypnotized into being a seal
I want her to be in the anime so bad
Ash has never really showed another girl affection like he has with Misty. There has been plenty of hints in the Pokemon series and I honestly believe that the ONLY reason they brought Serena in the X and Y series is because they want to cause some kind of drama and make fans think, "Damn...is he really going to be with Serena? What about Misty? What will she think?" That is exactly what they want to do. I have a feeling that Misty will show up sooner or later and Ash will probably have to break one of their hearts. My guess is Serena will end up getting her heart broken because Ash didn't even recognize her at first. But with Misty, he keeps her lure with him wherever he goes. Aww!! He even got upset when Dawn tried to take it from him because she wanted to use it. Ash has also mentioned Misty several times since she left. I remember when Ash was talking to Max and he said, "A good friend left me once and I miss her everyday...." Then he quickly caught himself before he gave too much information away and said, "But I know we will be friends forever." Clearly, she means a lot to him. Of course, knowing Ash he won't come out and say it.
Now, don't get me wrong...I don't hate Serena. I repeat, I do not hate Serena lol. I just don't like how they randomly threw Ash's "childhood" friend in the picture out of no where and it's pretty weird that no one has mentioned her. Ash has come back home plenty of times. If she was THAT important to him, you'd think he would go and visit her lol. But of course, he had completely forgotten about her. She must of not made that much of an impact in his life for him to forget about her. Serena seems like a very sweet girl but to me...she just tries way too hard and it's a bit annoying.
Misty has been there from the beginning and has clearly made much more of an impact in Ash's life. In the episode where Ash and Misty are on the blimp and Jessie and James captured them. Why would Ash and Misty look at each other and then turn away to blush if they didn't feel something for one another? They could of just said, "Haha very funny." without giving away the obvious lol. Also, in the episode "Misty Meets Her Match" why would Ash get soooo jealous when Rudy started giving Misty attention while he was taking the challenge on the boat? Ash completely lost focus because he was so worried about what Rudy and Misty were doing. In the episode "The Tower of Terror" when Ash and Pikachu become ghosts, Ash sees how worried Misty is about him. He says, "So Misty, you're really worried about me.." Then he grabs her by the hips, lifts her up and says, "Come for a ride with me Misty." Then, when Ash drops her so Brock can catch her, Misty realizes something. She says to Brock, "What a minute...that voice. I think something terrible has happened to Ash." Misty and Brock storm into the tower finding Ash and Pikachu on the floor not breathing. Ash says that it is time for them to go back to their bodies. When Ash opens his eyes, the first person he looks up at is Misty and he says, "Hi Misty." Misty smiles in joy that Ash had awakened. Awww!! That is one of my favorite episodes! Definitely proof of Pokeshipping.
There are so many hints that Ash and Misty are meant to be that I have lost count lol. As for Serena...I'm sorry, but Misty is Ash's only girl.
Is May the most fappable Pokemon girl? There's just something about her that screams fuckable. I also like how her design isn't overly girly or tomboyish but right in the middle.
