Do you remember?
I hope Ash marries Serena soon and get a happy ending
How could it go all wrong after Sinnoh. Man I wish I could forget BW animu portion.
Do you remember?
Jesus Christ it's like I just died on the inside. I think you finally broke me, anon. I haven't cried in so long..
The only cancer I've seen over there is what appears to be shitposting from what appears to be one guy.
The one time I went to /vp/ there was one guy that was linking some /a/ thread here and other telling him to piss off. I'm suspecting the guy making all these Pokemon threads might be that very same guy that spams those threads.
Holy shit. Just looked up streams because I missed it back then and forgot about it and from the episode names it looked like it will be a long fight but he will lose.
Thanks for tying up a lose end I forgot about
It's not that bad. There's a shitposter called Stale that has to be dealt with constantly but it's just become part of the daily life in the thread. Discussion is good and there's a steady stream of OC. Ever since the danse episode things have been non-stop hype over there.
It's pretty fucking autistic, i mean come on it's people watching the Pokemon anime what do you expect. But the autism is kind of comfy in a way. I don't know, i don't post but it is fun to scroll through every now and then. And they are pretty good at greentexting the plots of future episodes for some reason like tomorrow's winsect one.
The Original Series had some top tier minor girls.
Reminds me of what happened in 3rd grade.
During spring, we all had a caterpillar that we kept in a cup to grow. After awhile it was time to release the butterflies outside.
As soon as we released them, this fucking douche kid starts crushing every single one by clapping his hands on them.
God damn what a cunt that kid was.
Not to be an autistic shitler, but would a Krabby even enjoy water with that much artificial chemical in it? They breath that shit. At best it would be like you or me standing around in a room with a bunch of chemical vapors such that your lungs burned when you breathed.
At worst it might be somewhat toxic/life threatening.
Unless Krabby Used Bubble! for a safe Bubble Bath, in which case that is cute, and endearing.
When did you realize the Original Pokemon Series had a great OST?
I'm just posting some cute anime pokegirls anon, don't mind me.
I didn't ask for these feels.
...the 21st night of September?
The writing for Pokemon has never been great. It was and remains serviceable. XY is definitely the most fun the show has been in a long time though. Just the Serena spaghetti alone is great.
Battles are fun as fuck. Especially Gym Leader battles. What more are you really looking for? Deep themes or something?
The anime is a glorified commercial for crying out loud.
Season 1 had very solid writing for a kids show and it shows. Shudo was on the team that did Legend of the Galactic Heroes, he was miles above any writers they've had since.
XY might be better than Best Wishes, but it still has all the same problems of the more recent Pokemon series. Ash has been the main character for too long, Team Rocket has been around for far too long, several minor plots are recycled etc. This was all fresh in the original series, so it worked better and gained huge popularity. Now, nobody really cares anymore save for the niche fanbase.
Love was changing the minds of pretenders
>What more are you really looking for?
An ending to Ash and Team Rocket. It's only about 10 years overdue.
>The anime is a glorified commercial for crying out loud.
Exactly. Stop praising it for being good or better than most anime being released these days, because it isn't either of those. It's a toy commercial with nice animation, that's it.
I'd imagine that you would come to that conclusion if you let yourself zero in on a few things and miss lots of others.
I won't contest that Ash has become more boring. He was certainly at his most dynamic in the OS. But you try and turn him into that little shit he was in the OS again and you just make him look like a fucking idiot that should know better like in BW. I agree he's been the main character way too long and they should get rid of him. But at least let him win a league or something fuck.
I don't think he's bad in XY, he has this calm, confident and most importantly experienced trainer vibe going on. It's pretty boring yeah, but it works because honestly he should be like that at this point. He could have been a frontier brain for God's sake. Again though that's why he isn't an interesting character and should be replaced.
But the thing he isn't the only character in the show, and in my opinion this is the best his companions have been written since the OS. They kind of wrote themselves into a corner by insisting on using Ash. But they redeemed themselves by surrounding him with an excellent cast. I'm looking forward to tomorrows episode even though it's all about Clemont and Eureka precisely because they are interesting and the set-up of Eureka getting jealous of a girl marrying her brother leads to all kinds of fun ways just those two alone can react. Especially since so far she's spent the whole series trying to hook him up.
I got to disagree with with the team rocket complaint though. Yeah it's fucking dumb that that they are still around. But Pokemon is fucking dumb, it's basically cute animal abuse. So I don't think to much about it and enjoy the humor that they bring to the show. Which has been top notch as of late. Though if they did get rid of Ash (Which they should), I would insist TR left too.
Anyways this became a bit of an essay so sorry about that. I don't want to change your opinion, but I did want to get mine out there.
>Stop praising it for being good or better than most anime being released these days
When the fuck did I say that?
It's just a show that reliably comes out week after week that's fun to watch. That's all it needs to be. And XY made it fun to watch again after a long period of it being shit. The good animation in the battles helped a lot with that.
Can't believe they let such a lewd girl be in Pokemon
>Exactly. Stop praising it for being good or better than most anime being released these days, because it isn't either of those. It's a toy commercial with nice animation, that's it.
Anon, he only said it became good again in comparison to what it was before. Don't get overly autistic over what people can cool good or not because it might insult your image of what "good" is and what deserves to be called that.
I don't really disagree with anything you've said here. Well done on providing a detailed, concise and intelligent response, that's far more than I can say for the rest of this board.
>When the fuck did I say that?
I wasn't referring to you specifically, although I should've made that clearer. It just feels like every time a Pokemon thread is made on /a/, there's a group of people heaping praise on it for being amazing.
Thank you for saying that instead of dragging the discussion on for too long. I appreciate that and respect you.
The Pokemon anime has always been just guilty fun. It also occasionally has good plots or development, even briefly, that make it worthwhile.
Most of the girls have good character arcs, except for Iris and Johto-era Misty, that makes them fun to watch too.
Why are Pokegirls so fappable?
I love the designs of so many of them. Is it just the sheer number of girls presented, allowing you to selectively remember the many great ones and forget the bad ones, or is it just that the character designers are geniuses?
>Well done on providing a detailed, concise and intelligent response, that's far more than I can say for the rest of this board.
I feel like I've seen this before.
Pretty sure it's the latter
One of the best fights.
If there's one BW girl that I want to see make a cameo in XY, it 's Elesa.
Hell yeah I do. I thought Ash was a fucking genius heating up the battlefield pinning Blastoise in one place and forcing it to create a blinding layer of steam in cooling down the field. Still do. Makes me want them to remake classic battles like this with their new animation budget.
The tightness concealing yet still exhibiting admittedly one of the sexiest body parts, the legs.
>lying on the internet
The /vp/ anime general is full of shipping autism night and day and any other post triggers 'Shitposter! Hide! Hide and report!' replies
I guarantee you my long as fuck post defending the new show was not a pasta that shit came straight from the heart.
Well we had a pretty good run.
OP was fine even if it's a re-post.
The problem is the meta garbage people like
bring. The so called "shitposters" are only half the problem on that general, the other half is these autists constantly discussing them.
Not OP, it's this guy >>139707180 >>139707610
Those posts he quoted were 10 hours old at the time he quoted them, and there hadn't been any of the usual shitting on /vp/ or its anime thread until he made that post, so he just found the thread.
inb4 nice 'shop etc
The Pokemon anime was never good but it has its fun moments and good cries like >>139683953
. I'd just like to discuss these every once in a while but Serena everywhere so I gave up.
Another classic scene:
The feels really hit you.
It makes her leg look shiny. Shininess implies smoothness. Smoothness feels good. Feeling good is better than not feeling good. Therefore, the right one is the better choice.
lewdand smugis a dangerous combination
The best part of XY.
Season1 had writing and a story that was clearly going somewhere. I'm not sure if it was with advanced generation or some time before whatever the original goal was discarded and it turned into a pure marketing child pandering show, I'm not saying it wasn't one before but it had a real plot backing it up and it lost it. Now Ash is just a company mascot and not a real character, his story is no more interesting than Mickey Mouse's. My guess is that the decision to make Ash into a non-character brand happened shortly before AG as Ash vs Gary and the silver conference in general felt like it would have been the perfect ending to Ash's story if Blazikenfag hadn't been there.
The show stopped being a series the moment Johto started. Johto had no direction, it was 3 years of filler with Misty/Brock becoming stagnant characters and Ash getting rid of his Kanto pokemon to make room for a lackluster Johto team.
You're being generous. Johto is when the writers realized the show became too popular to give a conclusion too.
You're right, although I feel there were some redeemable episodes in the middle of of all the Johto filler, perhaps glimpses about what the original story was going to be. I dunno, I feel like the second movie with all the Ash being Lugia's chosen one stuff and the Ash Ho-Oh connection that had been built since episode 1, plus the Gary rivalry felt like it was building up to something that never came.
>we'll never see Paul again
>we'll never see Cynthia again
>we might, just might see Gary again if we're really lucky
>the Gary rivalry
There was barely any of it since we saw him like 4 times throughout Johto. Paul was and still is the best rival that came from the anime. He's pretty much the reason the DP series is on par with the OS and maybe even better than it compared to Johto, Advanced or BW.
Gary and Ash only battled once before the Johto league, which was Pikachu Vs. Eeevee at the end of Orange Islands.
How odd is it that for 5 years Ash and Gary only had one measly battle before their league match?
Fun Fact, originally, Ash's father was just some guy who left his mom and his mom came up with the lie that his father was off on some Pokemon journey.
Also, the cheerleaders that used to follow Gary were paid by Professor Oak to make him feel better

The writer for the Pokemon anime wanted it to be a lot darker.
That's from Shudo's novelization, which was written later and was just his personal retooling. It's like saying "Jessie and James were originally meant to have a kid" because it happened in a manga.
FYi whoever this anon isn't the same one who wrote >>139714760, me. I never thought it would be dark, I just thought it was building up to some sort of ending instead of the weird limbo Ash is in now.
