XY&Z05: Pikachu Dreams of Squishy! (Nov 26th)
Can someone create a 10% Zygarde icon for this chart?
alright lets start this thread right, AMOUR THREAD!!
RIP IN PIECES
>She wants to become strong and perform mega evolution, she said so since the very beginning. She revolves around Alan because he's already mastered it and because she loves him.
Then why not make her a trainer with a Pokemon that can mega evolve, and showcase her looking for a mega stone and keystone? Making her a rookie with a chespin and flabebe and then showing her doing nothing else is a waste if you're a character that wants to mega evolve a Pokemon
That basically just leaves her as an Alan fangirl with "i want to mega evolve!" as a pure afterthought
Great, now we're getting the annoying picdumper now.
>Alain in Serena's clothes
Not him, but I assume he means these.
yes thank you
i just want greninja

If anyone's interested, original blog post is here:
now why would i want to go against amour when its the best thing thats happened to pokemon. My dear anon, you're so silly. Enjoy the amour
not even a fan of hers but those posts teared me a up a bit.
>She probably had cancer. She's in the right age range for adenocarcinoma of the lung, which can very well cause continuous fever of unknown source, as well as cause obstruction that creates difficult-to-treat pneumonia. 38 year-olds just don't die out of the blue of pneumonia. The fact that it's been going on since January lends credence to a bigger underlying process going on.
What the fug.
Why the picture of a gen5 character?
What is happening here?
Is that the end of times?
Skip all of Best Wishes besides the Dawn episodes. You can also skip the episodes after XY 60 if short hair Serena is an issue.
Because she's a delicious loli full of love.
Just imagine all the sweat under this dress.
Based director was based as based can be for trading us a random guy for a loli.
Also, is there interesting R34 of her?
Serena wont ever be the same for me but the battles in XY&Z will be interesting so that's a reason to watch it. Maybe Korrina returns to make it even better.
>>wanting second worst gym leader of all to come back
with swollen pussy thanks to furry dick? no thanks
we must comfort her and protect that smile of hers whenever shes sad
I've finally figured amour out. XY has made the two into stereotypical/ideal japanese husband/wife.
>shows affection but not over the top
>always has a high high ideals of her
>the stronger of the two
>literal arm candy/idealogy of beauty
fucking writers setting back the anime 2 decades after Dawn.
they sure are anon. they sure are.
The mistake I pointed out with a red circle in pic related kinda bothers me. It's a wall drawn in a place where it obviously shouldn't be. I actually made this kind of mistake myself while 3D modelling, as sometimes you can create solid shapes by accident or forget to remove them after they stop being necessary, not to mention you can see the solar panels compenetrating the wall in a jagged line, which is a common rendering error. Didn't think backgrounds such as this were made in 3D, but I guess this makes it apparent.
More like 60% of Johto. Johto has some really funny fillers at certain points, and the episodes that focus on Ash's Kanto or Johto starters were great.
The very tail-end of Johto also has some consistently good episodes.
>Garchomp on rampage
>Grace calls Serena to watch this
what this movie is called
those little bits build immersion better than best arcs
why this gen anime is so based
yeah, btw template here >>24582227 if you want to make some cool OC
Dudes, how was this thread usual behavior during the BW series?
It was shit as fuck so, i doubt anyone really had any hope here. How was general reaction?
What made you endure it and hope for the best in XY?
Padt is a continuation of the Hype threads, which were around under that name since XY3, and existed in some capacity a bit before that too.
I know The Origin and that live action hype special hosted by Yamamoto had threads, and I think both Road to Kalos and the Brock/Dent special did too.
BW was still discussed on places like Bubagarden and Serebii, just like DP and AG were before that.
Around the time of XY the fandom mostly left the forums. Half went to tumblr, and the other half came here to 4chan. The users you see on forums now are younger fans who weren't around in the old days.
Most people in this thread are refugees from Bulbagarden/Serebii from the AG and DP days.
T-thanks for the info, anon.
>we won't have Satomi again because BW ruined it
>we won't have competent TR again because BW ruined it
>we won't have meowth joining Ash's team someday because BW ruined it
>Celosia`s hand is on Xerosic's shoulder.
What did that mean?
>tfw finally some admins with personality
Celosia is the manipulative and probably bootlicker and loves to taunt.
Marble has anger control issues.
Bryony the edgy tryhard one.
Aliana the autistic one with panic attacks.
I started watching the whole anime series from the beginning last month. I've watched all the banned episodes and the movies in "chronological" order. So far I'm in the Advance Challenge season, still got a long way to go.
Is B/W really that awful? I was thinking of still watching it since its not as long as the other series. I never seen a single episode, just clips, what made it so shit?
Rest well Miyu-chan, rest well...
No, it's not.
But it is okay to step out into the rain, you know?
Don't mind the rain, even if it keeps falling.
Valerie was a disappointment.
Not because she was terrible, but her pacing was bad, her introduction and connection with the group was non-existent. Basically, they could have done so very very much with her, and they just dropped the ball on nearly every count.
This shot is a classic. They could have had her turn her head to the side so their eyes met. They could have made that connection a good plot point/story bit. Instead it was...nothing.
She wasn't at all. /padt/ was expecting too much of her to begin with.
You were acting all "she's so lusftful, she's the new Elesa" and shit that you ignored the possibility for her to be just a random boss like Grant was.
And, well... I kinda told you so right at the beginning: The first OP spoiled the important gym leaders of the show, and Valerie's shadow was really small.
If a character needs to be changed because of some retarded Japanese tradition where cutting your hair means "progression/resolve" then I have a problem with it. It's also less feminine to have short hair as woman.
Serena is obviously going to win the Ashbowl, it's 100% canon that he likes ugly frogs
>Clemont's shadow was smaller FWIW
>but he still got an opening all for himself
Remember when people thought Don George was going to be Ash's rival?
Remember when people thought Ash's oshawott and snivy would evolve?
Remember when people thought BW was going to be good?
I don't think that scene was made in 3D, nor do I think the "jagged" edge you see is actually jagged.
I think the wall is shaped a bit like :
With the diagonal roof with the solar panels merging into the middle.
True, I can't understand why you'd want a wall there either, but I don't think it's a rendering error. I see too many foreshortening errors for that to be the case.
I also don't think it's a modeling/rendering error, but I can't explain it otherwise. That wall being there makes no sense, it's not even perpendicular to the house, it's slanted. It looks exactly like my stupid mistakes I fail to catch until rendering.
I remember there being so much fucking hype for BW everywhere; DP was finally ending, Brock was gone, Ash's new companions had extremely popular VAs, TR looked badass, the animation/art-style was improved.....it's weird looking back at the hype period knowing what it ended up being.
I'm pretty sure XY was not hyped up nearly as much as BW was.
>tfw can't read Sawyer without being instantly reminded of pic related
>Competent gym leader
>Can create AI pretty well
>He has the most important city in all kalos to his custody
>The power plant who gives entire energy to kalos is his patent
>His little sister is the ultimate wingman
We were also coming off the high of DP. People expected BW to be a direct continuation of DP...sort of like XY is now...rather than Ash being regressed and the show making terrible decisions
Don't forget a lot of people who stopped playing the games came back for Gen 5 and some started watching the anime again. I remember someone told me the anime was good because TR was serious and thank god I didn't listen to them.
The people who actually liked the season seems people who started watching the anime again and were in their teens, Iris/Cilan fans who stuck watching the show for these characters, people who watched it because "muh black female character" or edgy TR fans.
Don't forget a lot of Misty fans took to Iris. A lot of them didn't like May and Dawn being "girly girls" and they saw Iris as the closest thing to Misty.
I remember some of them saying Iris "brings back the wild tomboy" and was an apology for May/Dawn's girly behavior. They seriously think being girly is wrong or bad for some reason.
What if the ribbon is actually Ash's Mega Stone?
>it's the finals
>Ash is going to win legitimately but suddenly seems to look like he's going to lose
>the power of the plot is going in on him
>not even the sweep boner was enough
>Serena notices this
>suddenly shouts "SATOSHI, MEGA SHINKA!"
>Iris as the closest thing to Misty.
Iris can't be compared to the other girls, she is far too unappealing and is the least feminine of the all. Those Misty fans probably picked May or Dawn if they have a new favorite main girl.
She's laughing at your morals and traditions
At this point in time, I get the feeling that Wulfric will have AT LEAST an Avalugg and an Abomasnow that can Mega Evolve.
With Avalugg being slow as hell, I get the feeling Wulfric might have it create ice pillars all over the field to make it hard for any of Ash's Flying types to have their full speed and mobility, while also making Avalugg be able to hide within said pillars for more protection.
As for Abomasnow, if it does Mega Evolve, I think it'll just be a straight up fight with it coming down to Ash-Greninja. If it has Blizzard, then Greninja could end up replying on it's senses and end up using Aerial Ace (If Protean is confirmed) to take it down.
Ash's team in my opinion will be Pikachu, Greninja and either Hawlucha/Talonflame.
Just my thoughts.
>we will never see him again
>we will never hear his perfect voice again
>we will never know his name
>we will never know his past
>we will never
hug him and tell him we love him
Fuck I just want him to appear again so bad if only to hear that cocky voice again.
All we can do is remember what those few good things she delivered us.
>Caitlin will never tell Cynthia again how much she has grown after facing her
>Caitlin will never tell Ash how much he has grown since seeing him in the junior cup, him reminding her of herself.
To clarify, I mean those few good things she delivered us during BW.
Except it's a useless fat fuck that's too lazy to answer simple questions like "Where did you come from?" and instead it responds "NENE!"
>Saving my stupid joke
It warms my cold heart. Have a better quality blue puni.
That's how Squishy talks. Expect reros too.
Christ, the music that played during pic related scene was absolutely fucking gorgeous:
Because there are two cores, A & B. Each core can allows for two Zygarde to both reach to a maximum of 50% of it's power before having to fuse with each other to obtain it's 100% perfect form.
The reason for the blue is because the perfect from has both red and blue patterns on it's appendages/wings.
And this track, which has a shared leitmotif, is even better.
Adamant says the title should say Oltus instead of Ortus:
It's really nice that Pokemon has a guy as gifted as Miyazaki to compose and arrange the soundtracks, and that the show finds way to reuse some of the better movie tracks (though this track here hasn't been used in XY or XY&Z so far).
When he does he should hand over his man card and he deserves no girl if he ever becomes depressed.
It should be the other way around, he can't show weakness around her and rely on the girl to improve himself.
How do you guys think Squishy will warm up to Bonnie? What will it take? Will there be something in this week's episode that will cause Squishy to take a liking to Bonnie? Needless to say, it wasn't too fond of its new keeper for most of the first XY&Z episode.
Piss off, longhairfag.
>6 more episodes till new Flare episode
>it probably won't have Malva
Angry Perfect Zygarde that Bonnie called him Squishy when?
It doesn't matter, we all know Amour has made no progress.
>people die all the time
>girl voice actress dies
>/a/ flips out, 5,000+ replies
>"we're nothing like the general public! we don't believe in mourning over the death of a superstar! get off our board!"
In all seriousness, I wonder how many people actually KNEW who this voice actress was and what she had done in the community before the mega thread. I'm sure there are some genuine condolences, but most of it was just "look mom, i'm posting in a sticky!"
All kinds of posts get called Scott posts. It's hard to tell what a true Scott post is because there doesn't seem to be any specific indication.
I'm hoping I'm just being stupid here, but even I don't think you wouldn't be able to recognize Scott's shitposting vs. the bait.
Someone please give me a job. I have to much time on my hands.
>implying I can draw
Best I can do is shitty chibi's.
I think Alan is more interesting especially because we get him in short bursts but Ash works better for a long running show like pokemon. Alan's edge or motives can't be sustained or else we get something like Sasuke. It's the same thing for the Index series with Touma and Accelerator. Ash and Touma get a lot of flak but they're the ones that the show hinges on for the longer time as MCs. Alan appears in short doses and even has a loli morality pet.
>made up shit
>mega ray fiasco
>both of which she won't be involved in if she didn't follow Alan
I don't know man, those were pretty real. The danger to Sycamore is made-up shit though considering the one who warned Alan is the mastermind abusing mega evolution.
The problems he made up himself. He can protect Manon BY not doing whatever Lysandre wants him to do.
Now that I think about it, Manon is like Misaka, always following the MC around because she worries for him and wants to help, except literally having no power to influence the MC and is dumber.
The cure's easy:
eradicate everything. Now the poisoning is cured because everyone is dead.
Which is a good thing, it finally changes the typical Pokemon anime pattern. Things will be interesting once Zygarde goes 100%.
And there is also a picture for that.
Problem is, he wants to fight and be the strongest mega trainer so it's not all Lysandre. Even if Lysandre was the one who started the obsession by feeding him the lie about Sycamore, he's started to want to become the strongest mega trainer with his Charizard. Not with any other strong pokemon but his Charizard. It's a related but different goal from becoming stronger to protect them.
It seems weird but in the pokemon world, it sounds as valid a goal as becoming a pokemon performer, a ditto master or raising the strongest Sandshrew. The thing wrong is his methods though. It's the shounen belief that only training from hell can make you strong.
Thinking about it, it really is like what you said. It's similar to Touma constantly choosing to sacrifice himself since it's what he wants to do. It can hurt Misaka so Touma used to keep her in the dark so she won't get involved but she keeps sticking her nose in.
>he's started to want to become the strongest mega trainer with his Charizard
What he wanted to do was actually help Sycamore's research. It wasn't until Lysandre came along that he started telling him about being the strongest because he kicked his ass. Lysandre basically corrupted him and his goal.
"Make do", he said.
Bah, bloody nonsense.
Hence "Lysandre was the one who started the obsession" but at this point, it's no longer all on Lysandre or at least that's the impression I got. Not sure if I got it right but didn't he and Malva talk about his goal and why it had to be Charizard and not any other? It's what made me start to think his goal of being the strongest mega trainer with his partner isn't all that bad even if what started it was Lysandre. He just needs to fix his method. It's no different from wanting to become the strongest electric type user or one of those other specific goals you often see in the pokeworld if you take out Lysandre from the equation.
Same reason Ash gets scenes with Serena's episodes.
Well, Squishy learns to love humans because loli.
Other Zygarde kept being harassed, so it will learn to hate humans.
With that said I am wondering why it is with Team Flare at the op.
Have an appropriate reaction stitch.
Finally you're useful for something.
Feels like I'm looking at a "spot the inconsistencies" puzzle.
>Midriff for men
It's The Land of the Free, alright.
But anyways, FREEDOM BIRD.
Doesn't matter if you fixed it or not, you're still retarded for saying >>24585937
And the lyrics are literally just saying turn it up with 1,000,000 volts. Its not a nww move, its just an exaggeration of Thunderbolt.
Goodnight you bunch of homos, see you in a couple of hours.
>i'm not the only one who downloaded and watched that shitty junior cup episode where, every battle was one hit-one kill, fellated Trip's autism in the expense of Burgundy and her rivalry with Cilan, and Iris winning despite not doing anything just so I could hear Miyu's Cattleya
Its rather ironic to me that people are complaining about Amourshipping's handling and hwo it hasn't progressed when this is still the most heavily pushed ship in the anime outside the Orange Islands for Poke and maybe the tail-end of AG.
No Ash ship has been promoted as heavy as Amourshipping in the anime, especially if you take all the Japanese advertisements outside of the actual episodes. Seriously, people would have been begging for the kind of hints Amourshipping has for past Ash ships.
You guys think the venusaur in the data broadcast is gonna be a mega?
Thought it makes me wonder where the hell these niggahs get key and mega stones. I mean, rich people, archeologists, elite fours and champions, I can understand, but random nerds with umbrellas?
