Episode 39 RAW:
POCKET MONSTERS XY 40: SERENA VS SANA! POKÉVISION SHOWDOWN!!
>The third day of the Summer Camp is "PokéVision Production Day", and Serena is fired up! However, while focusing her attention on searching for a good place to film, she accidentally slips and falls off a cliff!
>The program for the third day of the Summer Camp is "PokéVision Production"! Serena is a huge fan of PokéVision, and is really fired up over getting to show off the Pokémon's qualities in one. She comes up with the perfect idea on how to do things, and gets all the Pofflé-baking and Pokémon grooming done in accordance to it.
>However, while she's out searching for the right place to film, she doesn't pay enough attention to where she's going, and ends up slipping and sliding off a cliff. Satoshi immediately reaches out his hand to save her, but it just causes him to fall as well! Will the two be all right!? And how will the PokéVision filming go!?
I think it's the most accurate answer though.
POKEMON GET TV EPISODE 45: (August 24th)
XY41: PokéEnteering! The X in the Mist! (August 28th)
>Finally, the last program post at the Summer Camp has arrived. Team Ash and Team Tierno are both competing for first place, having the exact same number of points. Today's competition is "PokéEnteering", where the participants collect stamps as they make their way towards the goal. During the competition, Bonnie ends up getting lost and spotting something absolutely incredible.
XY42: Team Battle! Competing for the Hall of Fame!! (September 4th)
>The final day is a team battle! Ash and Tierno's teams are competing for first place, and this will be what determines which of them ill be the overall winner! Tierno and the others head to the Pokémon Center to get their Pokémon treated before the battle, but Team Rocket, who have infiltrated the camp disguised as chefs, appear before them...
XY43: Tower of Mastery! The History of Mega Evolution!! (September 18th)
Pocket Monsters XY Special: The Strongest Mega Evolution ~Act II~ (unknown airdate)
>yfw Ash will see a depressed Serena next week
It's not a coincidence that when he didn't flip his hat the first time, Fletchling broke out.
We will? There doesn't seem to be alot of time for that:
>Announcement of Poke Vision competition.
>Serena baking, working out with the group.
>Shauna Poke Vision.
>Ash and Serena cliff scene.
>Serena and Shauna beach scene.
I love how they made Ash such a fucking alpha. I can get used to this.
Has Sarah Natochenny really done anything wrong?
>Natochenny lives in Manhattan, New York. She studied acting at the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute. As an actress, film editor and fashion model, she has appeared in international magazine editorials, done several independent films, done a weekly improv show in NY, and walked in NY Fashion Week shows Fall 2008. She speaks fluent Russian, and is learning German and French.
>She speaks fluent Russian
I feel like that's something I could have guessed just by looking at that image.
Voice actors are never at fault, they're only doing a job for which they get paid.
It is always the voice director's fault if voices are bad and/or don't fit. If you can't cast right then you shouldn't cast at all.
Ash does look pretty intimidating when he puts his Red face one
this is why you guys are retarded.
1. TR are not afraid of Ash, otherwise they wouldn't have kept on trying to steal Pikachu
2. TR, as in Jessie, James and Meowth are really stupid. They cant do anything right, they dont train their Pokemon, they don't think twice and they don't know how to battle
3. I don't recall Giovanni or any other evil worker being "scared" of Ash
all in all, Ash isn't that great otherwise he would have stopped them for good, so please stop being stupid
>Ash is so badass, he manages to beat 3 retarded criminals who basically ANYONE, even a non expirencedtrainer can beat on a daily basis!
This is is forgetting that other Team Rocket agents, like Biff and Cassidy, usually end up suffering the same fate as the TRio when they cross the heroes, despite being otherwise competent at their jobs.
Until Ash learns to use his fists while fighting and not hide behind his Pokemon like a little pussy, I won't respect him. You autistic fanboys can droll and dream all you want, Ash is still a shitty trainer. Just sayin' I know it's hard for you to accept someones opinion, but thats just how life is.
Ash can get violent when he needs to. I mean it takes some serious guts to punch a Mewtwo.
Can I just jump into the recent episode? I know Trevor and co have popped up. I haven't been watching as often as I should. I had meant to watch weekly but I dropped off before the third gym and haven't even been watching the dub.
Sinnoh was the closest arc to the games honestly. They didn't follow it 100% or even 80% but they hit more of the plot points than the other series.
It's sort of sad that Kalos isn't as close as I wanted but I don't mind. I had hoped Shauna, Trevor, and Tierno would have appeared earlier and I do miss some of the cooler game scenes.
I want Serena to be involved with Mega Evolution or do something that isn't cute and girly. I want her to be a battler.
I'm a girl and a feminine one at that.
Iris and Misty were battlers but honestly Misty barely did anything and Iris was mediocre as a trainer. May and Dawn were coordinators, which was fine but I don't wanna see that currently. I want a female companion who is up there with Ash. I don't want a female companion just there to attract girls with whatever cute minigame is in that region.
I'm curious about Rhyhorn racing but Serena doesn't seem interested.
>I'm a girl and a feminine one at that.
Why did you provide this answer? Your answer towards the other anon would answered my question just fine.
P.S. Japan loves cute. You probably won't get your action bitch anytime soon. Hell, even Pokemon as a whole is alot less focused on action compared to many Sh?nen. I am a little peeved at this though.
He already fought Viola before episode 16.
He already fought Grant though.
It's really doesn't matter if you are dude or a chick that hates feminine shit or not. Just saying you want action bitch Serena over kawaii Serena is enough.
She's so pretty. Too bad we didn't see much of her. It's a shame that the BW rivals all have shit development. I would love to see her return with fairy types... But unfortunately, I don't think she's ever coming back.
Dunno if you two are the same people, but the episode is "A Fishing Connoisseur in a Fishy Competition!"
Actually, have the link.
HURT WITH ME ANON
>Pilot 2 parter episode
>Clemont suggests going up the Prism Tower to help Garchomp
>the building has mechanisms that only work with his Aipom arm
>Ash doesn't put two and two together
Reminder that this little nigga has a better moveset than edgedog
Check spoilers at your own risk
>post yfw when
>May doesn't get a cameo
>Steve does, but drags Max with him
If the two were to meet up I reckon it'd be Max with the crush on Bonnie, May would notice it straight away and take the piss out of him, Clemont would moan at the fact Bonnie keeps asking woman to be his bride when she herself is oblivious to Max's feelings.
That being said, the meeting could be funny.
>yfw it really would make sense for Max to be with Steven because Max is actually friends with Mr. Stone
>Max and Iris make their cameos at the same time
>Cameron appears as well.
>Their Lucarios take up the plot
>Max know it all attitude is used as exposition instead of Clemont while Iris' bitching serves as the straight man for everyone's shenanigans
>Is this season good? I haven't watched the anime in [x] years and-
>Yes, it's fucking good just start watching it already.
What exactly makes it so good/different than previous seasons?
I watched the first few episodes back when they came out. It didn't seem that different from previous seasons, so I was interested in what people find to be so good about it. Does it get better later on, or...?
first few episodes' arc ended at ep7, you should watch it until that part and then you judge it. The rest of the series are good actually, battles are upgraded and there's no more fucking stock lines animation footages whenever someone instructs an attack
>such and such happened
>Blaziken Sky Uppercutted her in the throat because of the neglect
>live in nippon
>have a 3 year old daughter take her to see the new pokemon movie
>get in theater the guy gives me two pkmn tetra diance coins and a paper with instructions how dl diance
>mfw it says i can only get it inside the cinema
>mfw didnt bring my 3ds
Ash is so awesome and cool he manages to defeat 3 retarded criminals whom basically ANYONE can defeat on a daily basis! He can stop people from creating new dimensions, or taking over the world, he can even jump off buildings to save his friend! But just can't seem to get 3 very stupid crooks off his back and STILL falls for their disguises!
You guys were right, Ash IS cool! I had my doubts but you guys showed me the light!
>saves lumiose from a hyper beam spammer
>encourages his science bro to take back his gym
>calls out an dumb gym leader on her bs
>takes wil o wisp to the face for his partners
>jumps to his death for shouldermon
>made Serena realize her mother is alright
>saves hawlucha being stoned by usaring
>takes flying press to the chest
what a Mario sue
Next episode. Serena basically gets more active and apparently reckless because she doesn't have a goal. Shit happens, and probably at the end we'll get a Serena who's still goalless, but more active in general.
>yfw Ash goes to the battle institute in Lumiose
>yfw after Ash performs in it they tell him he could potentially have the title of "Pokemon Master"
>yfw Ash hearing this and realizing that he's never won a league starts feeling depressed bit by bit
>he falls into his Sinnoh depression state
>Serena and Ash's Pokemon get him out of the depressed state while they talk about him being at his dream while her not having one
Remember when Paul beat him the first 6v6 they had? Ash pretty much got taken out and he pretty much fell into depression.
Any one wanted XY Ash to have an arc to himself?
Have him break away from the main group for a while and see him fend for himself?
Since the anime is following the games story kinda closely I reckon they could have it so Serena goes away to work on Pokévision movies, then Clemont and Bonnie stay behind to help with the blackouts in Lumoise since Ash and Clemonts battle would've completely wrecked the place.
They could all meet back up in Laverre City.
Just give Ash Route 14 to himself and have it centered around him destroying cunts.
Could be good I reckon, especially with based XY Ash.
Not even all of the magical band aids in the pokemon center could fix his broken spirit
Don't see why Serena would work on PokeVision videos back in Lumiose seeing as she's only done one and the second one's about the group's Pokemon, not her. The only time I'd probably imagine them seperating for a bit would be during the Team Flare arc, but I don't think it'd last more than a couple episodes.
That would be awkward to watch. It would be Serena just blushing and spilling spaghetti and trying to get the D while Ash the Chaste One is completely oblivious to whatever the fuck she's doing.
how about this
Clemont and Bonnie leave the group because Clemont wants to train a bit before their match
>Ash doesn't this have a certain atmosphere to it?
>Yeah I feel it too
>Yeah, I think we should get something to eat I haven't ate in ages
>Double battles at Le Yeah
Yeah that's because Bonnie and Clemont are there. Without them, she's going to have living fantasies that her and Ash are a couple and will dream of getting married and having his babies.
Do any of you faggots find yourselves unable to sleep because of the shit that's happening to Serena?
Anon, please the only thing you may want to lose sleep over its mega faggotron Tobias returning with a Mega Latios
>what is don't give up till the end
Ash already went into depression and Serena already helped him with that in the first few episodes. We probably won't get another depressed Ash until next region because he doesnt have a rival that can whoop his ass in Kalos.
what a buncha kids
Ash is based as fuck this series, enough said.
Ash looked goofy in BW but now he's cuter than ever. I can't tell what they changed.
Wtf are talking about? Some anon says its a bit inappropriate to joke about suicide, and you're the one that overreacts. Seems like you're the oversensitive type that is apparently killing /vp/
So what are the chances Ash will give Serena a "Ash styled" pep talk this week? He did one with May a couple of times.
Which would be worst?
>Cameron returns and wants to mega evolve Lucario and asks Ash for guidance
>Tobias returns and is the first human that can mega evolve twice
>mfw Ash mega evolves Charizard and another mon at the same time to save his friends from certain doom.
>it happens in the same day as the finals and he's disqualified for being in coma.
>ash sacrifices his dream for waifu and kids
She is waiting at Shalour gym for Bonnie's approval to grind Clemont to a new life
Cameron can go to fuck. Tobias is a godly trainer so if anyone could pull it off it'd be him.
That's the sexiest thing I've ever heard.
>yfw it's Alan & Ash vs Lysandre while the entire lab is falling apart
>Lysandre's four robot arms can now mega evolve one Pokémon each
>Ash and Alan beat his first four Pokémon including two of his megas
>Ash and Alan's megas fall to the next two mega Pokés. (Charizard X and Y)
>Ash sends out Sceptile
>Alan sends out Swampert (Limone is helping evacuate Geosenge with his Blaziken so it makes sense for Alan to have a Swampert at this moment, fuck you cunt 1v1 me.)
>Sceptile and Swampert are getting stomped hard
>Ash looks at Sceptile and hits his mega ring again
>Alan looks at him like he's fucking crazy and hits his mega ring too
>The entire room glows then eventually fades
>Mega Sceptile is holding a passed out Ash
>Mega Swampert holding a passed out Alan
>Final fight ensues Lysandre gets rekt and gives off a psycho rant then fires off the ultimate weapon which is nowhere near charged enough
>Entire labs explodes
>It looks like Ash and Alan have were too late
>Everyone is sad as fuck bawling their eyes out
>Anime pulls a Dark Knight Rises and shows them alive literally two seconds after it's implied they were kil
>Ash misses the league
>Stays at Kalos another year to train for the next one
>Loses to Serena whose goal became "Become a Pokémon Trainer"
>/vp/ implodes from mass butthurt
>Perfectly fine dubs wasted on a shit post
Accepting opinions are easy m8, but your opinion is wrong.
>Tackled a Lucario
>Tried to punch Mewtwo
>Wrestled the guy from the Celebi movie
>Fought that AJ guy
>Tanks Pokemon attacks on multiple occasions for both comedic and serious situations
>Can walk just fine with a Hippowdon on his head
>Carried a Larvitar in his backpack for a good length of his journey in Jhoto.
>Rock climbing in Grant's Gym
Fuck your opinion because the FACTS prove you wrong. Ash and every other trainer that's been traveling for as long as he has are as /fit/ as hell.
little too late for that, Clemont has been ground thoroughly
>implying Alexa hasn't been working on her article about Ash
>implying Ash won't end up having two titles, the "Hero of Kalos" and "The Challenger"
>implying this won't cause girls to flock to him during the Lumiose celebration
>implying during the panic of being surrounded he won't instinctively grab Serena's hand and bolt to the outskirts of the city with Clemont and Bonnie right behind them
Lots of faggots thought Manon was a boy before the episode aired.
Until shortly before the episode aired, all we had was this picture of her.
These two ruined my life. Waiting to see them again hurts.
>yfw Steven is drawn in this style
>yfw the animators and girls watching the show will wet themselves at Sycamore and Steven being on screen during the same time
Swadloon I know, but does this fucker look like a hikikomori to you?
So what about Riot and his long fingerless gloves?
You just want to bully him, don't you?
>Mirror Korrina was a total bro with a vagina
>Shared fair screen time
>bonded with bonnie
>was lady like
>her shirt was probably clean white with no sweat stains
>kept her lucario in a pokeball
>was probably running away to avoid her responsibilities
>didn't want to mega evolve her lucario because it made him suffer
>End it up proving her worth as a gym leader her own way
>wasn't a total retard and an expert on every pokemon type
>yfw Valerie uses Ash and Serena as models while making a new design for wedding attire
>Alan and Ash fighting in Lysandre's lab
>dramatic battling and shit
>Ash tells his waifu and Clemont to get the fuck out of here
>Alan and Ash keep going and run into Lysandre who is about to blow up the world
>Alan fights Lysandre while Ash goes for that other bald fat guy that made the machine of destruction or whatever
>Ash wins but Alan is about to be struck down by mega gyarados
>Ash steps in and barely wins
>but it's too late
>shit blows up
>it's apparent that they didn't make it out in time
>sad waifu and sad pamperchu, etc
>dark knight rises thing like from this guy's post >>20579095
>makes it to the league just in time
>everyone's freaking out
>Ash plows through the competition
Ash loses to Tobias
Ok I'll fix it.
>you will never rip open korrina's spats after an intense workout revealing her bare ass as you bury your face in the ass of her spats and inhale deeply
Life is suffering
>PICK THE ONE WITH THE EARLIEST POST NUMBER, LATER ONES GET DELETED
>THIS IS HOW IT WORKS YOU NERDS.
>not picking the one with the best quality, only choosing the earliest one if they're all the same
