POKÉMON NO UCHI ATSUMARU? EPISODE 6 (Nov 8th)

>As they continue their journey, Ash and friends discover that a Joy, who's working at a Pokémon Center, has been trapped behind a rock and can't move.

>As Ash and his friends continue their journey, they witness a Litleo about to leave its pride in order to live on its own. However, in addition to Ash and his friends, a mysterious shadow has its eyes fixed on the Litleo as well.
XY&Z05: Pikachu Dreams of Squishy! (Nov 26th)
At last, it is time.
Synchro Evolution when?
As much as I liked Getta Ban Ban and will miss it, this is too awesome!
Even Clemont knows this is lewd.
The real question he needs to ask is how many times must Bonnie keepu and get her heart broken before learning.
Looks like the shoe now is on the other foot.
Oh, thank goodness they are running instead of acting like ninjas and leaping away when they want to go somewhere.
I just noticed that she was tapping her finger superfast the moment Celosia started teasing her.
>all that animation
Just what was that? It's too good.
I've just watched Mega Evolution act 4 for the first time and holy shit are Malva and Lysandre the most scheming motherfuckers ever. I've never seen a more blatant set up in my life, Alain is getting played like a damn fiddle.
>there are people who wait until subs are out to watch the episode
>everything is all said and done
all of a fucking sudden it is ALIANA AND SHE HAS ALREADY CAPTURED Z-2
Why they fuck would I watch the raws? I wouldn't understand shit. Sure I could probably work out what was happening, but I would miss the entire context of the situation.
Damn, these girls are just super fun. I want them to appear more just so I can see them make fun of each other every time Ash and gang escape or foil their plans.
Ninja movement's reserved for Ash and Serena you know. Occasionally Bonnie
although she's more sentai.. That's why you see Ash and Serena do leaps and flips.
So I guess it's cured of its crippling autism now.
>>there are people who don't watch it live, then watch the raws,
That's as far as I go, I don't want subs so I can take screenshots without text. And the dub rips the soul out of the show so I rather watch the raw version.
Meh, the only time I would watch an episode before it got subbed would be if Ash ever had an official match against a regional champion, something which I'm not even confident enough to bet $1 on ever happening so waiting for subs will do for me.
>Brock was shown to be a good artist
>so does Shota
Getting your first experience of the episode WITH full understanding of the dialogue sounds pretty nice, actually. If someone's patient enough to wait for the subs, I don't see an issue with that.
When was the last time Ash just casually took out his badge case to admire his efforts?
I love the clouds passing by above them.
Does Alan even know these girls are working for the same organization that he does? Does he have a higher rank considering he reports directly to Lysandre? I think he's unaware so he might actually end up fighting them at one point. I can only imagine their reaction to getting defeated by their own teammate.
He probably doesn't know. Looks like Mega Evolution project and the Zygarde project are two different projects that are seemingly unrelated to each other. It would be natural for Alain to have no idea who these niggers are.
>Shota is given camera focus to trash talk Team Flare
>basically just says "Yeah, I agree with Ash."
>slipping off a rock
I expected better from you, Bonnie!
It sure does, and hopefully people haven't forgotten Korrina is still one of the best XY girls.
>Bonnie somehow separated from the group
>they try to capture Puni for the Zygarde project
>Alan's lolicon powers activate and defeats them because Bonnie reminded him of Manon
>that eventual reveal that he has to take Puni away from Bonnie himself in the future since Mega Evo and Zygarde project are both under Lysandre
>he's going to make Bonnie cry either way
Not just that.
>Manon ends up with Ash gang
>It'll be just like that Raildex scene where Touma and Accel exchange lolis for a day without meeting the other despite being in the same place
>Alain and Ash don't meet. Not yet
>dat reaction from Grovyle as Shota becomes wet for Ash
Would be nice if he has a better moveset (dragon dance set) and/or make his Charizard overleveled for the area he's found on. Fits his character of overpowering people since he only has one pokemon.
I bet she wants to make fun of her for failing to catch the core but tries to keep it in because she's talking about something super important.
Doesn't look like it is, but hey, you should still open a pottery shop anyway.
I guess this is a cautionary tale of travelling alone in the Pokemon world.
>Bonnie tripped while crossing a river by jumping on the rocks just like Manon
>Manon's Chespin got cancer because it saved what is now Bonnie's Puni
Still pottery even if it's not the same area.
For all their grandeur they have not the foresight that Zygarde may have more tricks in its sleeve.
>yfw they believe 50% is the final form and they pit Z-2 against Ash and gang's Z-1, because there can be only one until at last they find that there is a 100%
This shall be their downfall.
Since the Flare girls are also game characters, it would have been better if you had included their English names as well. I'm assuming Bara is Bryony, Correa is Celosia, Momiji is Mable, and Akebi is Aliana?
>not having pic related as an option
For what purpose?
I have no idea what their English names are, and their Japanese names are the ones used in the anime episode people just watched. I included their hair colors for additional clarification.
Fair enough, I guess.
Have we gotten any reaction from nuzamaki on her post-subs release, by the way?
There's just something about this line that makes it so seductive.
>You truly are a detestable trainer
>So detestable it actually makes me like you
Isn't it more like he has a twisted notion of love? He does care for the people he loves but the way he goes about it is messed up since he detaches himself from them.
Don't they just mean he's single minded? Like a horse with blinders or a raging bull. Give him a goal and he'll push forward while missing out on everything else. It makes him strong because he's determined but also makes him easy to manipulate so he's a convenient tool.
Meanwhile, Ash and Serena have motivated each other to push further and they both serve as each other's motivation and comfort for when they feel they can't do it alone. Not to mention the other stuff.
GO BACK TO MEGA EVOLUTION ACT IV
LISTEN BETWEEN 2:40 AND 2:44
WHEN YOU HEAR THE SOUND EFFECT...
According to Malva, at least tongue-in-cheek, he is. I don't think Lysandre would consider himself a bad guy, though. He thinks he's doing humanity and Pokemon alike a service by using ME energy for "peaceful purposes."
>At least he trying to fight for his waifu and the episodes they share is partly about their relationship
>he's literally the reason she loses it
>Ash doesn't take the easy way out and protects Serena's
I thought you were being ebin, but I just googled it, just in case. You gotta be kidding me.
Good night, faggots.
Is Nenene dreaming about getting revenge on Squishy?
Is it weird May's boobs are just as big as Malva's?
Did someone ask for short-haired Dawn?
I have no idea what the hell this picture is. Its May with a new hairstyle, short-haired Dawn...and that pink haired girl from the scraped Movie 1 trailer.
I just came back from the Hoopa movie dub.
Here are the basics:
Mary is named Miray (pronounced Me-yer-ray, not sure on spelling as no cast list) her voice was OK.
Barza is named Baraz, same voice as the trailer
Hoopa's catchphrases are "Ahlay-Hoopa-Ring" when it summons things and "were you surprised?" when it pranks or otherwise uses its powers on someone. It's dub voice is not great, but better than the one in the first trailer. Hoopa Unbound's dub voice is shit though.
This shot of Mary crying isn't in the dub, though I don't know if it was ultimately in the Japanese version either.
The ending credits song is decent, but not even remotely as good as the Japanese ending. Haven't heard the Japanese movie music in a long time, so I don't know if it was replaced or not.
>Hawlucha was able to break Spritzee's Trick Room with X-Scissor not just because it was super effective, but mainly because Hawlucha has Mold Breaker
Shota's badges. 3 new badges, they seem kind of obvious: Fire, Water and Fairy/Flying Gyms.
Is it worth watching BW subbed?
I've been watching the anime series from the beginning and I've
been watching the dub,so far made it to the end of the second Advance series and on to the third. I heard the BW series is horrible but I've heard bad things because of the VA.
8/10 - lots of good kaiju, though the evil Ash plot doesn't go anywhere.
he expells it from his system with mah friendship or some contrivance like thatBetter than most Pokémon movies of late, though Mearay's (just as difficult to pronounce as it is to spell, Mary is the superior name in literally every way) sexiness and large screentime helps a lot.
Does XY&Z have a total number of episodes confirmed? I hope it's like the Frontier series from RSE
so we will have a chance to see more amour
An anon talked about New Zealand and a cap. Remember me if New Zealand is thirth world again, now I can believe whatever.
Expectations are low, so everybody went to sleep then. Nothing worth staying awake for.
For a new season, this looks like quite the anticlimatic start. From all to none over the course of one episode... sasuga Eevee.
Probably should go to sleep too.
We're not third world by any means, but we have third world internet. Data caps are no longer mandatory like they used to be, but the unlimited plans are typically more expensive than those with a cap. One of Kim DotCom's goals was free high speed Internet for all, but the government keeps harassing him about Megaupload, so I can't see that happening any time soon.
Reminder who the best Aikatsu is
I think it's about Rin.
>Niji2 is much higher quality
>Neetball is like two minutes ahead
Poor Eevee having to suffer from this fat fuck's attraction
Also, even Ash is telling the fat fuck to cut the bullshit now.
>Musashi has named Squishy "Musashi-beauty"
>Quilladin was such an autistic faggot even Ash got mad at it
Also, keked again
>Fat shits get rejected.
>Fit guy action hero MC has girls all over him.
Remember to not be fat guys.
>Fat autismal fuck wants da Eevee
>Eevee does not want fat autismal fuck
>Fat autismal fuck tries to get Eevee to like it
>It gets keked like five times and eventually just gives up
Moral: Don't be a fat autist
>Professor Sycamore happens to have an Audinite
Guess Mega Stones could pretty much all be provided by him if anyone in the main cast ends up wanting to use mega evolution (like Tierno with Blastoise).
Well, that was a very by-the-numbers episode. They split the focus between Eevee and Puni-chan really badly.
But that epilogue though.
>Froakie line is literally getting all the pandering
>Greninjas are god sent Ninja warriors that Senpai and his Brothers own
>Ash Greninja is literally on par with megas
>Fennekin line are all whores but harmless
>Hari-san literally carrying the chespin line all on its own
>the other chespin line members are useless, autistic and fatsos keks
Eevee has noticeably improved in the shyness department. It's fine around all of the party's Pokémon including Chespin and it didn't overreact at Quilladin's advances. Sure, it wasn't an alpha in rejecting it like that Flareon, but it still made it clear it needed to fuck off.
Yes, but at least it wasn't all a waste. It set up the gang meeting Sycamore in the next episode to show him Puni-chan, Eevee being less shy and TR getting involved with the Z business.
>Sycamore just happens to have a mega stone and key stone for Audino for Joy
>doesn't even give his boy that is doing mega chores for him because his other assistant boy is fucking off to god knows where a key stone
Goddammit, Sycamore. But I'm glad he dropped everything, even Manon and Hari-san's suffering, just to investigate Puni-chan.
So you're telling me it was better than anything from the Moltres episode on? Because it wasn't. Doesn't mean it was a bad episode anyway, just that we had a string of really good ones.
Yeah, well, she still grinds my gears.
Things would get very interesting if by comparing data about Hari-san and Puni-chan he found out the former's coma was caused by the latter's power. I hope that's what they're setting up.
No, just predictable, and I literally don't give a fuck about Quilladin. But it I had to, screentime shouldn't have to be split between it and its shenanigans with Puni-chan.
My personal worst is the Rotom episode, and the worst animated is split between the Amaura and Tyranitar episode, Are prehistoric Pokemon epiosdes just low in the list of episodes that should be animated well?
Well, at least Ash was based dad here.
it was pretty bad. It was just more painful to see after 4 great episode, but its harmless. I personally wouldn't give a damn to see it again.
So what happened in the battle? My stream freezes in crucial moments and it seems that the universe is conspiring against me to prevent me to watch Pokemon episodes.
Did Pancham defeat Quilladin? Did Pancham defeat it? Or was it interrupted again?
