Why do Serenafags want Serena to stay instead of train with Yashio? Sure it means more Serena but it would be total character assassination. Just affirmation that her devotion to her performing was shallow and weak all along.

Mallow is practically confirmed to be replacing Serena.

Some autist actually ran the numbers. Pikachu should only be around level 90 based on what it's done on-screen.
>Despite traveling all over the world, saving countless people, running into every legendary poekmon, etc somehow Ash is not famous
At least he's finally going to win one.
Still won't stop him from going to Alola, but at least people might know who he is.

Glad to see Ash got some pay back for his loss in the movie
>>
>>145160552
How old is Ash now?
>>
>>145167477
It would be awkward and forced. Ash was able to walk/drive from Kanto to Johto to Hoenn to Sinnoh because they're all PokéJapan. He had to take a plane to Isshu and to Kalos because they're PokéNewYork and PokéFrance, respectively. If Serena is going to be trained as a performer by Yashio in Alola, PokéHawaii, Yashio needs to either drop everything she's doing in Kalos (she's a famous producer, you think she doesn't have anything else on her plate?) and stay in Alola for ~150 episodes (Where will she stay? Will she travel with the main group?) or tutor Serena remotely, which it's clear is not what Yashio wants to do and again, would show how little commitment Serena has to her "dream" that she can't stop chasing some boy who will never love her back.

It's desperation. There is no reason for Serena to stay another 150 episodes. She had a clearly defined arc (moreso than any previous companion, I'd say) and that arc is over now. It's been over for four months now, she's just around to finish what she started by traveling with Ash.

>>
>>145168102
Why do they love Serena, though? I've been there a few times and the Serenafags rival Remfags in terms of shitposting.
>>
>>145168079

Because she likes Ash, Ash is doing well in Kalos, Serena is doing well in Kalos. Life is good even more so than in Kanto. Why ruin it?
>>
>>145168125
It's the pokemon world, there is no downside!
>>
>>145167839
11 if that pikachu and pichu special is canon.
>>
>>145168131
Not to mention a lot of them are people who stopped watching the anime prior to XY and only watched it because of Serena. It's a good thing that many will push through to Alola no matter what but it's sad to see a vocal minority vowing to quit the anime if Serena leaves.

She's shipping: the character and the writers force her when they feel like it and /padt/ use that as evidence that she'll stay. Which she isn't of course, though I bet they still think she is.

You know, it's funny how Serenafags are unable to give a proper reason as to why Serena should come with Ash to Alola. Their answers tend to be hollow and are easy to debunk.

>>145168157
>Serena is doing well in Kalos
Which is probably a better reason for her to stay in Kalos rather than move to Alola.
>>
>>145168242

I don't care either way, I'm explaining what others are thinking.

>>145168080

If you ask me, they were sparred. If they appeared in the anime they would've naturally been shipped with Ash. And Ash shippers are some of the worst scum on the planet. Look at how bad anime Serena has ended up. The anime taints the main girls heavily.

The reason neither of the B/W girls were placed in the anime as Ash's companion is because they were simply too old. It'd just look odd to have either of them with Ash when they're both taller and older.
>>
>>145173415
They still think Serena will win Ash while the recent and likely true leaks proved that Ash will be ditching Serena who will fall into the void never to be seen again like Misty, May, Dawn and Iris.
>>
>>145174694
They turned Serena into a little girl, so why not Hilda or Rosa?
>>
>>145169251

They were retired long ago anon. Brock's VA voices Ash's Greninja and Wobbuffet though so in a sense he's still there.

Very much.

>>145175453

Ash will probably win the league. Hold your ass tight.

>>145175453
There is no reason, it's far worse than the original series these days. A completely exhausted, overdone series.
>>
>>145169251
Did people actually ship Iris with Ash, though? From what I saw there was nothing on that end.

>>145175087
Were Serena and Calem even supposed to be older than 10-12? I feel like that was all speculation and no confirmation was ever given.

man Brock and Misty were genuinely great characters and the trio with old Ash's personality made good chemistry.

Apparently Sun and Moon doesn't have a league (or at least not a traditional league) so if Ash has to win it has to be now.
>>
>>145175945
What the fuck do you even watch Pokemon for then? Don't tell me you actually watch it for the filler episodes where they show off the Pokemon of the week and Ash and co help out some random stranger only for Team Rocket to ruin everything.

The only episodes that matter are for the notable battles, any episodes to develop Ash's friends, and the league.

>>145176108

>>145175683
New Ash is said to be badass, but now he has the personality of a wooden plank.
>>
>>145176108
He needs a way around mega evolution without using it himself. Also it promotes "Z moves" sort of, with its giant water shuriken.
>>
>>145175970
Better shows.

>>145176066
I don't watch it at all because there are far better shows available.

The "league" is the most shoehorned motivation imagionable and you're an idiot for caring this much. It's just some pokemon competition, yet morons like yourself seem to think it means everything. What emotional attachment does Ash have to it again? Why is it so important again? Because the show told you so? Because it's how you beat the games?

I always cringe at how dumbshits like you try to claim Pokemon is better than currently airing shows when this is the basis of the story.

I care about the league because I've always had a soft spot for Ash's achievements since I was a child.

>I always cringe at how dumbshits like you try to claim Pokemon is better than currently airing shows when this is the basis of the story.
When did I ever make that claim? Of course any currently airing show is better than Pokemon. Pokemon is a fucking kids' show for fuck's sake. No sane adult watches every episode of this week by week.

Because there's generally an emotional attachment.

As for the Pokemon League, it was never Ash's dream to win it, it's just a shoehorned motivation to keep the show going. The only people getting emotionally involved are idiots like yourself.

Why?

Even I'll admit Ash's character had charm back in the original series, but now he's a sterile lamp post. Why would you be emotionally engaged in his meaningless goal to "win the league"?

>When did I ever make that claim? Of course any currently airing show is better than Pokemon
Nothing really to argue then, although there are definitely people on /a/ who think otherwise. Maybe it's just the crossboarders from /vp/ though.

He saw a poster of the Pokemon League in episode 2 of the OS and decided to enter it.

Reminder that at its core, Pokemon anime is targeted at young children. That means that at some people, it's assumed that people stopped watching it, which further means that each gen/arc are more or less there to bring in newer fans with Ash + Pikachu being there for brand familiarity.

>complete sellout cash machine at this point.

she's noticeably older than ash, so it wouldn't have worked for them unless they de-aged her.

I think it was, but that leak has already proven to be wrong when it comes to certain minor details when it said Ninetales' new form was Fire/Fairy.

The XY leak also claimed Greninja was Water/Fighting and Chesnaught was Grass/Dark, so this kind of minor shit should always be taken with some grains of salt
>>
>>145176874
People are speculating that he's actually Fire/Dark, and that it's middle evolution was a bad dirty delinquent with a bad temper who uses dirty tricks and cheats to win against his opponents.

Then once it evolves into it's final evolution it takes on a much more noble fighter and looks for redemption by fighting like a heroic Fire/Fighting type while still being Fire/Dark, although it still has a temper on him.

No, there's no real explanation to why this random doodle man happens to look like Ash, but it's just a minor detail that means very little in the long run.

The only people that get into autistic arguments about it being game or anime art are butthurt Serenafags that get confronted with another reason why their girl might stay in Kalos. No one else gives a single shit if Mallow ends up as the companion or not.

Just straight-up adapting the game plots isn't going to bring in a crowd.That's why authors tend to add their own stuff to it- look at Anakubo's manga or Special, or even the Diamond and Pearl manga.

It's not that Ash and co. are regressing, it's just that Kalos is beastmode compared to Kanto, and all of Alola is going to be even stronger still.

In the anime, a Preschooler in Kalos would kick the ass of the Kanto Champion.

Ash is sick with a cold. A loud obnoxious guy shows up and wants to battle the famous Ash. Serena assumes that he won't take "Sorry, he's sick" for an answer without even trying it, and instead changes into Ash's clothes (while in Ash's tent with Ash lying right next to her asleep) to battle the loud guy.

Well the anime is still plagued by pikachu, Ash not catching every Pokemon he comes across (seriously he couldve had a Moltress and Thunder). Im not bothered by Greninja. Its just megaevolution without a Keystone.
>>
>>145197191

It comes in waves

Advanced was a low point
Diamond and Pearl was good
Black and White was sub par
XY is good

>>145197191

All of Sinnoh was fun, Hoenn was better than Johto, Battle frontier was pretty good, Best Wishes was awful. XY is good but too much Serena shit.
>>
>>145197191
Most people think DP and XY are good. Most people think BW is awful.

AG is decent too but it rarely gets discussed.

>>145197557
I don't know about you, but I left the Battle Frontier disappointed. They built up the pyramid guy as a crazy wall, and had Ash decide to bring back his OG team to get back to basics or whatever. Okay, cool. But then the final battle was animated like ass and had really poor choreography. Pikachu wins with a one-shot against a legendary and I'm left thinking "Wait, that's all it took?" The situation was exciting but the delivery and payoff were lame.

I have the same problem with Tobias. I think it's cool that DP Ash was so strong that he took down Darkrai and Latios when the rest of the tournament didn't even KO Darkrai. But the battle looked bad and was squished into one episode (because it wasn't that important, it wasn't the climax of the series, that was Ash and Paul).

Vs Juan and Vs Paul were better in each case.

Diamond and Pearl is the longest season in the series, even longer than Johto, with not much else going for it besides Infernape's character arc. If I recall correctly, it also has the longest dry spell between any two gyms in the entire series.
