How does /a/ feel about canon relationships?
Blushes have gotten so much more lewd when Serena does it.
May's blushes in AG didn't look like that. Serena looks like she's having a orgasm.
I like to think of Ash as GTS
Great Teacher Satoshi
He goes to each region and picks up a team that interests him. He tries to bring out the best in them, relying on the individual monster's preference to become stronger or find some sort of self-happiness. Then he gives them his blessing to take control of their own lives and releases them or lets them retire to a stud ranch back in Pallet Town.
Except Pikachu, who's just in it for the Ketchum D.
>You should seriously take a look at /vp/
I just did and >>>/vp/25854380
I once told /vp/ I disliked anime Serena because I felt she had no real personality.
They told me I was wrong because sometimes she cried when she was sad and she smiled when she was happy.
I gave up.
The anime general's honestly one of the most cancerous threads there. A ban evading shitposter has made everyone else paranoid cunts, and if you don't have the same opinion, you ARE the shitposter in disguise.
Technically they all cover each other's flying weaknesses though
Talonflame > Ice
Hawlucha > Rocks
Noivern > Electric
There was a thread here earlier today that got a whole bunch of contrarian "opinion" posts among a bunch of more blatant shitposts and bait. When the guy eventually got banned, EVERY single one of those "opinionated" posts got pruned.
It's not paranoia, that guy is real and had a pretty recognizable posting style too.
So he is ban evading. I figured he was spamming mods with frivolous reports like a big baby.
Is it the same guy who responds to every argument with meme arrows and "except it was/n't" or "it's been proven?" It's fucking uncanny.
Apparently, discussing Sun/Moon anime protag implies Serena will leave at the end of XYZ, which implies she will not end up with Ash, which implies I hate the ship which implies I must be the shitposter.
Sun/Moon is another subject that is guaranteed to get to you this kind of accusations, I've seen it more than once.
I can nearly guarantee you that the person that called you a shitposter as the shitposter falseflagging unless you worded that post very differently from what you claim here.
>Sun/Moon is another subject that is guaranteed to get to you this kind of accusations, I've seen it more than once.
Funny you mention that when there's only been one guy that's tried bringing it up and the use for has been anything but wholesome.
>a few minutes is eons
>Misty didn't leave of her own will
This image will never not be completely stupid.
I'm still mad after all these years.
The show still isn't worth watching. I don't care how hard you try to ship here /vp/. Its the same fucking shit they've been selling for years. Oh remember to buy the next clone of pokemon red and blue next season! Also rebuy blue, red, and yellow! DON'T FORGET THAT TOO!
Flying is the most dope-ass type in Pokemon after Bug (and is followed by Psychic). His team looks perfectly in line with a person of refined tastes.
How did they get away with this
Does anyone know why Pikachu despite being max level and the veteran of a thousand battles jobs so fucking much
>Not the webM
every time you think based director has pushed the Pokemon anime to it's lewd limits it just gets lewder.
How many girls has Ash genuinely expressed interest in?
Things have gotten out of hand. Remember when all it took was this to make people flip out?
Ash and Dawn were basically siblings. I can see how people would like the ship though before Serena existed, but nowadays its obvious Dawn didn't have any type of crush on Ash.
Millefeui is the best thing to ever happen to this franchise.
Yeah, looking back Misty is really the only main girl besides Serena to show any definite interest in him.
May was just his bud, Dawn was basically his imouto, and Iris was an annoying fucking leech.
Legs have always been the Pokemon anime's preferred type of fanservice.
Just because she wasn't lusting for prepubescent dick 24/7 doesn't mean they are basically siblings.
They have the healthiest relationship, she has aspirations of her own and actively contributes to both Ash's journey and the show in general.
Their synergy was on point and Ash genuinely seemed to care about her. She's her own character not just ship bait.
Giselle in OS and enough in Serena to actually invite her along as opposed to just about every other character.
>her face after losing the tripokelon breaks her
Giselle is the definite one although Serena's been a close second.
He asks her to join him as opposed to Brock, Dawn, Cilan and Clemont/Bonnie who ask if they could join him, Misty who just follows him until he gives up trying to lose her, Tracey who just invites himself along, Iris who follows Ash for no apparent reason only to be invited by Cilan, and May who coerces him with the bike.
Ash passed up these boobs, he better not pass up Serena.
You can't forget about her smug face though
Zoey was blatantly lesbian and Dawn blushes around her a few times. The writers had to be subtle with it though because they probably couldn't promote a gay pairing hard on a children's show.
Remember when Yugioh was gay?
I used to feel that way, but then I remember that 2003 was a different era- if you said faggot you weren't called homophobic, if you said tranny you weren't called transphobic, etc etc.
Why has the anime gotten so lewd?
The Pokemon anime has been getting away with lewd designs for more than a decade. This is a 10 year old girl.
I think only the nigger is the only chick that wasn't interested in Ash.
Misty was the tsundere tomboy that he dumped after Johto
May and Dawn were the kouhais who got dumped after their generation was over
What's new with this girl?
>talking about childhood friends somehow means delusional
There's two types. The ones that stuck around since the beginning that lose and the ones that meet, separate, and reunite who win. Even then, Serena and Ash only had one meeting so she isn't even a childhood friend.
They covered their bases with her.
Nah. While it's true that Serena has the best chance of going on out of the girls so far, I seriously doubt they'll really keep her.
He said win the ashbowl, not that she stays.
>New gen = new girl
misty followed him in gen 2
It happened, started as a joke, was only that I would buy him a copy of the next game, and he got angry because I called him a retard, got real really quickly
Well there's Misty and at the same time Iris wasn't exactly what'd be called a good representation of gen V. Not to mention gen VII been heavily speculated to tie to Kalos.
Because she and Brock were popular, but by the end everyone had grown tired of them since they didn't do anything but stand in the background in Johto. Even the popular girls like May and Dawn were replaced, I don't expect Serena to stay.
He'll evolve when he reaches his full potential.
I was really hoping for a Thunder in this scene, but I doubt we'll ever see that move again.
Why did Pikachu forget Volt Tackle anyway? Electroball doesn't seem any better than Thunderbolt.
All the characters haven't aged, but Ash is drawn to look a lot more physically older this season. Compare Kanto Ash to XY Ash...the latter looks like a teenager and an aged version of his former self by about 5 years.
He also looked a bit older in AG and DP too.
Thunder is one of my favorite moves in the series, and I was a bit disappointed it got dropped after Hoenn.
A bigass bolt of actual lightning dropping from a cloud feels like it has a lot more impact as a finishing move than Thunderbolt or Iron Tail.
Cannons are completely fine for relationship.
Pikachu's trying to hook Ash and Serena up.
>Being this delusional
nigga the only reason he had a Goomy was because he asked him to be trained into a tough guy
under Ash, not only did he become Rambo, but he also scored a fairy ass
So clemont is a miiafag?
the whole scene was amazing
>Lillia and Bonnie talk
>Bonnie tries to make her brother look bad
>Lillia however finds it more appealing
>"my bro wets his bed when he sleeps"
>"wow, that's so cute!"
Goodra is entirely likely to return for the league. The writers gave it a cameo, Ash only has 5 pokemon, there's no reason not to expect it to return.
Its happened before with Charizard, Squirtle, and Gliscor too so this isn't the first time.
Also the current team is just amazing
can't find a webbum of this but man
I wish I could kill every one of you 6.5 memers
>Sun and Moon are Gen6.5, not Gen7
Sun and Moon have new characters. So in order to promote these games they will make the new heroine join the party
I know I shouldn't raise my hopes after the shitfest that was the Hoopa movie, but this actually looks really cool.
Also semi related https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DGTSGiZfIhU
I hope the lore building done through gen 6 actually comes out to something
Hoopa is pretty fine though. Really the only problem that movie had was the RANDOM SPACE DISTORTION near the end.
Also love how we went from a polite princess (diancie), to a cheeky cunt (hoopa), to now a brutish thug (volcanion). I wonder how magearna would talk.
this scene is just perfect
the faces, the reaction, it all has a story to tell
/jp/ has its own board but you still see idol and LN threads (with no manga or anime adaptations) in /a/
/h/ has its own board but you still see hentaifu and sad panda threads in /a/
They post here because threads in their respective boards would be up for weeks without reaching bump limit
It's still well watched by younger kids and toddlers in Japan. It has actually ratings in the 4,5 - 2,0 range.
That leads to the next question... why is anime staff pushing a shipping so vehemently if Serena has high chances to be axed and Satoshi has to go to the SuMo region in the XY&Z finale??? Have they forgotten their target audience (who is the same target audience of series like Anpanman, Shimajirou, Thomas & Friends & Curious George)??
>why is anime staff pushing a shipping so vehemently if Serena has high chances to be axed and Satoshi has to go to the SuMo region in the XY&Z finale???
Because they like it and the direction of the franchise in the future is not theirs to decide.
Have a big transparent happy Millefeui
You tell me
God damn it, where's the Kalos region Ashley episode?
I want to see Serena dress Ash up in cute clothes!
I get the feeling the majority of them are, they just usually end up attracting a bunch of people that actually want to discuss. Most of them are pretty shitposty for the first 50 posts or so before turning into actual civil discussion.
This is why Ash is the best, he accepts no substitutes.
>tfw you will never know what its like to be pursued by a dick-hungry Serena
Ash looks like a stupid excitable child, what the fuck? He looks like one of those kids on Barney or something, he probably likes answering everything Dora the explorer asks on TV
and an episode before he insisted on going to Serena's Master Class, detouring from his gym battles, something he'd normally whine about
this vid summarizes what I feel about XY anime in general, and surprisingly enough it's not a cringe video
This episode is largely agreed to be the best jump-on point.
It sets up the XY arc and XY episode 1 assumes you've seen it, so it's a better place to start than that.
>the way ash is holding those cupcakes
I hope the trap ash episode is the one trend they don't break
Even now, I am still amazed. They're technically the same person but game-Serena is portrayed as massive slut that has slept with countless men for money while anime-Serena is so pure, doujin artists feel bad about trying to slut her up and pair her up with anyone but Satoshi/Ash.
Also, here's the viewing order pasta from /vp/

From the /vp/ thread.
>XY&Z024: The Forest's Curse and the White Phantump!! [Apr 28th]
The Avalugg line is the only line in the entire franchise that hasn't been featured in the anime yet. Expect Wulfric to have an Avalugg.
>Is there porn of -
I'm kinda amazed at how versatile they have been with Serena and her clothes. If I didn't know any better, they could start a fashion line based on the stuff that she had worn.
one of those is neutral to electric
one of those got paralyzed yet managed to outspeed the competition still (the aforementioned bravest ballerina who charges into rocks without fear and suicide bombs the enemy)
one of those is 2fast4electricity
I've noticed an extreme split in opinions when it came to the recent Hoopa movie. Nearly everyone that watched it when the dub premiered thought it was awful and one of the worst movies yet. Those who waited for the Japanese home release or the sub thought it was one of the BEST movies yet.
A bad dub can really harm your impression of something.
It's really fun. And Mary is top tier.
If Ash discovered what his dick is for he'd no doubt become the Genghis Khan of the Pokemon world.
more like haram
The /vp/ thread isn't too bad. There's one persistent shitposter but everyone has gotten used to him and just talks around him.
Plus there's some great drawfags
also a lot of things lost int he dub
they are israelites exploring poke-dubai
she is Mary, her brother is Barza a.k.a. Peter, their gramps is literally Jesus
their friends are Vid (David), Luke, and another Bible figure name
they worship Arceus and use his powers
Would even DP Satoshi have done this?
Haven't watched the show in years, or maybe a decade already, but in the game Pikachu can be a pretty usefull element of your team, however after certain point not evolving him into a Raichu makes it very hard for it to carry it's own weight
Having it hold a Light Ball almost makes Pikachu better than Raichu in game. Raichu still beats in in speed and in the ability to hold other items though. Which makes the classic Lt. Surge battle in the anime pretty damn ironic.
She gave it a shot. Also later she played that mermaid in a play in cerulean gym if I recall correctly.
Hey now we're having a good thread here. Let's not get something started here about who's the best girl and let people like what they like.
Anyways there's tons of great pokegirls. Enough for everyone.
Misty was brash but a typical girl that always wanted her way, Serena's a lot more compatible going with the flow, like how Brock was a best bro, and May as well. Dawn gets her way like Misty.
Either way Ash needs to make with the recent games and re-travel Kanto region to battle the elite 4 again.
I like Dawn > May = Misty > Serena >>>>>>>>>>> Iris
It's not even that I dislike Serena, but she just seems kind of boring compared to the others (disregarding Johto Misty).
I also honestly kind of like OS Ash a bit better than XY, because while it's clear that the current one is way more skilled and mature, I miss OS's snarkiness at times.
He's responding to himself.
I just can't believe Pokemon got away with an oppai loli back in 2002.
Misty lost all her personality early into the Johto arc though. Misty should have been replaced after Orange Islands, they just didn't have a new girl to replace her with when Johto started.
I'm so happy May has remained consistently popular despite not being in the anime for 10 years now. You never forget your first love.
>shitposter gets here after 400 posts
damn he's really losing his touch
anyways, good thread guys.
>same file name as this deleted post
>one of a lot of deleted posts in the same thread, most of the others being really blatant bait primarily droning on about how good the original series and Misty was and how Serena is likely to fall for Citron, as well as a bunch of falseflagging about how he's not shitposting
And it bet it's a completely coincidence that the same picture with the same image name got posted here a few days after a known shitposter posted it on /vp/ during a massive shitposting spree consisting largely of posts pretty much identical to the ones that just got posted here now.
While the comics being posted now and a few of the earlier posts were definitely falseflagging attempts, seeing the paranoia in the rest of the thread, I think the simplest solution is for all of /vp/ to kill themselves.
I'll take cringe comics over your paranoid faggotry any day. Fuck off.
>It's not even that I dislike Serena, but she just seems kind of boring compared to the others.
>I miss OS's snarkiness at times.
Pretty much this.
Also it feels like I'm alone with this but I really started to dislike anything Tripokalon related.
It feels like Serena and her shitty "performance" show is hijacking Pokemon as whole.
I mean I don't even get concept of show where you jump around in flashy costumes, make effects with moves and get keys as trophies.
It just feel ridiculous and out of place as hell.
I'm not saying the shitposter doesn't exist, but there are still loads of posts accusing others of being the shitposter because they have a contrary opinion that weren't deleted.
>there are still loads of posts accusing others of being the shitposter because they have a contrary opinion that weren't deleted.
From what I can see, most of those were HIM calling random anons shitposters
The shitposting there started on the dot it started here, and it's ended now. I assume he just got banned from /a/ instead of globally?
>even pokemon is being corrupted by idolshit
