>tfw Charizard understands Manon's feelings better than Alan does
>>
>>24618241
Minor characters who got a "by the way they had a crush on Ash" thrown in shortly before they were perma-written out.

Cute little bits of their personalities, but not something ever intended to go anywhere or be brought up ever again.
>>
>>24618243
Is this really true?
>>
>>24618252

Alan understands her. He's just doing what he thinks is best.
>>
>>24618264
Serialized romance manga and light novels fo young boys tend to be endless buildup towards the payoff in the series finale, while anime adaptations of manga and light novels tend to just adapt the start of the series in order to advertise the actual source material.

So yes, the extreme majority of romance anime these days never get anywhere near the part where the confession happens.
>>
>>24618267
Clearly he doesn't understand her, given that once he saw what had become of Manon, he ran out of Lysandre Labs full of rage and regret.
>>
>>24618269
And if they do get together early during the series, things get really stale or cringe later on.
>>
>>24618281
If fucking Megaman can do it, I don't see why Pokemon can't? Would it be so bad to have Ash/Serena be official while traveling together?
>>
>>24618281
Megaman and Pokemon are original, long running stories loosely based on video game franchises, the points in >>24618243 and >>24618269 referred to straight anime adaptations of (early parts of) manga or light novels.
>>
>>24618269
I don't see why people think Amour has made steps. I mean, I like it as much as the next guy…but people think just because Serena declared she wouldn't lose to Millefeui it's moving along? Just 10 episodes after tha had Serena shooting steam out of her heard for fear Ash over-heard the stuff about her liking him.
>>
>>24618296
Stalebaiter pls.
>>
>>24618299
Not him, but I agree with the criticism that things haven't really moved on her side at all from where it started. You could make the case that XY59 moved Ash's side of things, but that's really it?
>>
>>24618307
Nice try, stalebaiter.
>>
>>24618288
I forget, did Maylu just confess at the end of Battle Network 1, or did Lan reciprocate and put it on the backburner until after Battle Network 6?
>>
>>24618288
Two dating kids traveling together without adult supervision might not go over well.
>>
>>24618296
Is that you, Scott?
>>
>>24618288
Uhhh
They're 10 years old
>>
>>24618328
She confesses and Lan goes full retard due to embarrassment, then the credits kinda just roll.

They're more or less dating in 2, though.
>>
>>24618330
Did it come across as a Scottpost? Oh well.

But I'm just saying, on Serena's side of things…it's gotten kind of repetitive? She either worries about him(which is debatable on whether you call this a hint or not), ask for his opinion on her looks, or spills spaghetti when approached about her crush.
>>
>>24618334
How old were the kids in Megaman?
>>
>>24618341
10 in the first game, they turned 11 some games into the franchise.
>>
>>24618338
Stalebaiter, pls go.
>>
>>24618343
So there's no reason why we can't have Serena hugging all over Ash like Maylu does to Lan.
>>
>>24618346
It would be stupid, weird, and a completely different and unnatural tone from to show to take at this point.
>>
>>24618336
Your memory is shit. He literally friendzones her. And then when everyone tries to force him to change his mind, he tells them to fuck off.
>>
>>24618350
Then he has a wet dream about her in 2 and is piss jelly she's even acknowledging Enzan's existence.
>>
>>24618336
I faintly recall the Starforce anime screwing with Sonia's personality to the point where the incredibly important first brotherband scene in 1 is glossed over in favor of some stupid shit happening instead.
>>
>>24618352
The anime never really followed the games' plots very well.
>>
>>24618349
Isn't the Amour subplot already different?
>>
>>24618334
Wasn't there something about them referring to Ash using a word to describe the 14-16 year old age group?

>Ash and Serena start dating
>Ash calls Delia
>"Hi Mom! I, uh, want you to meet someone. This is Serena...my girlfriend."
>"Hello there Serena, it's nice to meet you."
>"Huh? You're taking this really well. I was expecting a big scene and a lecture."
>"Ash, you're growing up. I've watched you get stronger on your journey, and you're becoming a wonderful young man. I trust that you'll make good decisions."
>"I don't know what to say...thanks Mom."
>"Besides, I had a feeling this would happen sooner or later. Why do you think I kept telling you to change your you-know-whats every single day?"
>>
>>24618363
Not Ash, Alan.
>>
Is Pokefan this month or next? I can't remember when the last issue was released.
>>
I just started watching after not watching since johto. I started with decolora adventure 20 since that's what /vp/ recommended. if I understand correctly, ash stores all his pokemon that he doesn't release with professor oak at his lab in pallet town before starting a new region?
>>
>>24618374
Yes
>>
>>24618374
Correct. He started doing this after Johto, the in-universe explanation being that he wants to challenge himself by raising a new team in the new region and use that to beat the gyms. The real explanation is obviously that dragging his old Pokemon into the new region isn't advertising the new shit very well and mostly just creates the need to awkwardly write new room for new mons into his team. Johto was a huge mess in that regard. He usually brings his Oak reserves back to make super teams for the league.

How far in are you?
>>
>>24618363
>"Hi Mom! I, uh, want you to meet someone. This is Serena...my girlfriend."
God so autistic that I even cringed.
>>
>>24618374
So the new starters can be showcased since they're almost always immensely popular, and we can see the new gen's mons on a team as they grow. Pikachu always comes with because he's the mascot.
>>
Looks like Ash is losing the Kalos League as well folks, on Masaaki Iwane's blog page someone remakred that they might be dead before Ash wins a league to which Iwane replies that he might be dead to so BTFO XY fags.

http://6727.teacup.com/iwanemasaaki/bbs

google translate page it should be readable.
>>
>>24618386
I always wondered what happened to them, it's good that there's that, I was kind of under the impression the series just "ended" and then "started" again cold with every new region.

Has he gotten very far in any of the pokemon leagues up until now? I just finished decolora and started XY as we speak, I decided to start watching again today thanks to /vp/
>>
>>24618390
Ugh
They're just as bad as you fucks.
>>
>>24618390
Are you actually trolling Iwane's personal website with lengthy bullshit in English just so you can link to it and "btfo" people?

You have to be over 18 to use 4chan.
>>
>>24618390
>After all , I like Haruka but Satoshi doesn't have any chance with her because of Shu.

Opinion discarded
May is pure
>>
>>24618396
Nah, everything is in continuity.

So far he's made it to the quarterfinals in Johto, Hoenn and Unova and the semifinals in Sinnoh.
The closest he's been to victory was in Hoenn where he just barely lost to the guy who went on to win the entire league afterwards.
>>
>>24618401
Well I wasn't the one who posted the bullshit anyway so think again faggot.
>>
>>24618404
yeah
sure
>>
>>24618404
No, of course not, you're clearly just visiting his website on a daily basis so you can link any random shitposting here if someone happens to post some.

There's a difference between not liking a series and actively harassing the people that work on it.
>>
I'm freaking harassing the person who posted that he might be dead before Ash wins a league not Iwane, fag.

He's "10", despite attending two different summer camps, competing in 5 leagues plus the battle frontier, the show clearly showing the passage of months in some circumstances, and a Pikachu short celebrating the 1-year anniversary of their journey.

A capture for Ash, an amazing Tripokalon, an evolution for TR, the best fucking evolution ever for Ash and some filler and Pokémon development episodes up to Anistar. Then we got a capture for Serena, another Tripokalon and then the best gym battle yet.

Do you believe in the boogeyman too?

If there's something that 4chan doesn't lack, it's idiots with dedication and social retards.

Funnily enough, most of them would drop dead pretty easily if they didn't ever get any sort of attention. Just a thought.

I remember reading some autist's notes where he wrote down whenever the show would say something like "the league will be in 3 months" or "I can't believe it's been x amount of time since we've been here", including days actually shown passed, and estimated how much time should've passed since the start. I'll go dredge it up and factcheck it tomorrow.

>>24618547

>>24618550
The general consensus is that AG is better than Johto, DP is better than AG and XY is better than or on par with DP.
BW is garbage that's probably best avoided.
>>
>>24618552
Early XY isn't great though because Serena literally exists to be shipped with Ash. It takes somewhere in the vicinity of 35-40 episodes before she evolves from being background scenery and actually starts doing something.
>>
>>24618552
I keep hearing BW is terrible since coming back on /vp/, although I thought people disliked DP as well. what makes it so distinctly bad?

No.
>>
>>24618559
Pasta time:


>*The rivals were terribly handled. Shootie was boring, his character arc barely even involved Ash, and he was given a horrible resolution. Langley and Cabernet just disappeared with NO resolution whatsoever.
>*Ash's team was weak, boring (3 starters + Pikachu and a bird is never an exciting combination), and his reserves rarely ever appeared and had zero personality.
>*Hikari's 10 episode long guest appearance barely involved her at all
>*Grimdark Team Rocket was fucking terrible in every way
>*Episode N had some decent buildup, but the endgame was an anticlimax taken to insulting levels
>*Decolora Adventure had its share of fun episodes, but 20 episodes of random aimless adventures is no way to end a series.
>*It's also generally agreed that the movies weren't very good (I kinda like the Victini one though)

Sums up the general problems with BW
>>
>>24618559
People on here love DP. Personally I always thought it has a horribly slow pace that ruined it, but whatever.
>>
>>24618559
BW is fine up until Season 2. Then Dawn comes back and does literally nothing except be a shit with Iris, then the League is interrupted by Axew getting lost, despite the same thing happening in an earlier episode, then the league has the worst ending of any league to date, after which Team Plasma get an arc (which is OK, though not used to its full potential), Charizard returns and does nothing, then we have somewhere near 20 episodes of literal filler. Also none of the BW rivals get any closure, they just stop appearing.
>>
>>24618559
The people that "dislike" DP always came across as just having looked at some episode guide or something, since their main point is always "there's a 50 episode stretch of filler between the 7th and 8th gym".

Very few of those episodes are ACTUALLY filler, and almost the entire Team Plasma plot takes place during these episodes, so unless all episodes that aren't gym battles are filler, there's little truth to that claim.

I see, it's nice to hear it hasn't all just been shit, and has actually even gotten better since I stopped watching. I don't know why I assumed it was all bad.

>>24618579
You stopped watching in Johto, which is where the show went into an incredibly tiresome rut of formulaic filler for about a year. It's understandable.

Tell that to whoever you are actually referring to
>>
>>24618651
I don't because I'd be responding to trolls.

XY's strengths is because it's so different from DP and well, general typical Pokemon archetypes in general.
>>
I never finished DP.
I got up to the 3 psyduck episode and quit around then.

Granted, this was after I just caught up with the entire series from start to finish, and I was still kinda mad that the Groudon and Kyogre episodes being such massive fucking disappointments even after I was looking forward to them for so fucking long.
Another reason were the voices were trash as well. I don't think there were subs back then. And I don't remember anyone I talked to liking DP either at the time.
Also contests.

Anyway, it seems that most people really only hold it in high regard because there were some nice fights during the league, like Paul v. Ash, and Ash came close to winning.
>>
>>24618653
People hold it in high regard for character development, including multiple side characters which all get episodes devoted to them, the battles outside of the league as well in addition to the Team Galactic Arc. It's not just the league that makes DP so good. The dub is shit though, so do watch the subs where possible.
>>
>>24618653

Problem with DP is that a lot of episodes kind of tack on something important like a pokemon learning a new move for example, saving it from being filler, but it's still a boring episode none the less.
Also it had a lot of 'training' episodes where the characters are just talking about perfecting x contest combination and being shown failing a bunch of times, only for Team Rocket to arrive so they can successfully use what they learned against them. Shit was dull.

I enjoyed DP for the most part, but it was by no means perfect. Sometimes it could be quite the slog to watch.

Not the guy you're replying to, but it seems like not much has changed with Serena at all. Meanwhile I see intensity with Steven and Alain in the specials, but those are just specials. However, I do see more...I dunno, I wanna go with 'emotional' scenes in there than the Ashnime. It seems like the entire anime is honestly just going on full autopilot whenever the writers get buttfucked by real life. Which is...apparently every time now.

Heck, they are but, even them, they're still more of petmons than anything. If i'm not mistaken, Mawile was always a petmon until it got a mega to "show true power". Even in that, the difference of levels between the mega and a common Mawile is quite big.

That makes me think if the "common dude" would find Ash awesome for having 5 strong mons. Most of then have one or 2. They usually just see a kid running with a Pikachu (but still recognizes him as a trainer because of dirty clothes bag and so).

Would Ash even accept a challenge from them?

The people who say the anime has been terrible since Johto are mostly Misty fans who stopped watching a decade ago and claim the anime went downhill after Misty left.

It does for me. Routinely having 20+ episodes inbetween gym battles largely killed my interest. You should never stretch the alleged main plot so thin regardless of what you put in the meantime.

/vp/ got me interested in watching the anime again, last I remember I was in the middle of AG, and I heard some pretty cool things about XY. I started again from the beginning and right now I'm watching the episodes before Ash and co head off to Battle Frontier. Gonna see the Lucario movie as well since I'm also watching the movies.

Been watching the dub this whole time tho. Was thinking of switching to sub when Ash goes to BF since the VA changes but I can't find any place where I can see all episodes.

I've seen a couple of episodes from DP but I'm really looking forward to it.

If you look through the DP episode list there were still always important events happening between each Gym. They did mini-arcs like the tag battle tournament, summer camp, Twinleaf Town festival, etc.

You had Contests, Hunter J, Team Galactic, tons of episodes about Paul and the other rivals, etc. DP also had the most amount of recurring rivals of any saga.

Now there are some boring or dire fillers in DP, but I never thought it ever got that bad. I think it was just stretching out an 8 Gym quest over 4 years instead of 3 years like Hoenn and Kalos that made people get bored.

Yes, this is exactly what I'm saying and what the case was for me. It doesn't matter how much different stuff happens in the meantime, the badge quest should be the main focus instead of being constantly on the backburner. I know these gens last 4 years, but the badges taking that long is simply too much for me. AG had the right idea with a second quest shortly after the midway point and while I have no idea what XY(&Z) will do, I'm happy the last badge is already in sight. If this was DP, we'd be going towards Lumiose City for Brobowl right now and still be some ten episodes away from it. Can you imagine that?

>>24620198
No. There's 90 episodes left. Ash saved Serena once and she fell in love with him. With that many episodes left Clemont could save Serena and she'd likely fall in love with him. Amour shows she falls in love very easily. Plus with the Bunnelby/Eevee thing, and Bonnie looking for a wife for Clemont…the set-up is there.
>>
>>24620222
But it wasn't sleeping
>>
>>24619989
I actually go back and rewatch the series regularly. I also rewatch big moments in Ash's journey or about his Pokemon.

I've also rewatched May and Dawn's Contest arcs many times. I really miss Harley too...best rival ever.
>>
>>24620223
you do realize how eevee is afraid of everyone who isnt bunnelby or serena right? that logic wouldnt work. I bunnelby would be the supposed love interest for eevee, theres harimaron to block it if he keeps getting in the way. There's also the almost no interaction between serena or clemont throughout the region so far. At most to help bonnie or Ash. If it didn't work with buneary and Pikachu, it doesn't raise the chances for bunnelby and eevee to work for serena and clemont. So far clemont has done nothing of the sort to be courageous since he is mainly the joke in the series. I dont see amour fully happening, but i can see the end with Serena thanking ash for the fun journey they had and with her giving him a kiss on the cheek. That's something thats allowed in the show.

it makes me appreciate pokemon more. It makes me enjoy it the way i did as a kid, and how it still exists today for us all.

The writers have proven they'd do anything to prevent Ash from winning the league, hence Tobias. They'd do the same with Amour. Despite teasing it for 90 episodes, they'll use the second half to make her completely fall out of love with Ash and fall in love with Clemont.
>>
>>24620295
that doesnt prove anything. You don't know what would happen. For all we know, Bonnie falls for Ash for saving her. That logic doesn't work at all anon. Clemont has helped Serena before when they got separated but nothing big happened between them. Now all of a sudden it happens? They aren't that random.

>The chances of Ash winning Serena are lower than Clemont winning her.
saying that when there is no proof what so ever about serena falling for clemont and ditchin ash. just saying she'll fall for clemont doesnt prove anything. I can say the same with Ash and Millefeui but how would we know? Your logic is irrelevant anon. You don;t have anything to be able to prove your statement.

In DP, the only secondary quest they could have done was the Elite 4, but I'm guessing they were told no around the time of the 7th Gym, hence the 1 year gap.

The only thing else they could have done is cover the Johto Battle Frontier, but I honestly don't care about that. Ash already turned down the offer to become a Frontier Brain, him challenging another set of Brains would make no sense. I've honestly forgotten what the Johto Frontier Brains even look like.

Also people talk so much about the subplot DP has but TF plot already blows TG out of the water in how much more elaborated it is.

Too bad that the writers will start pushing Ash/Serena again.You gotta feel bad for Clemont. Sucks that the nerd can't win the girl.

Still 90 episodes left. Too bad the writers are going to give more time to develop amour in the remaining episodes.

Wait till we see how Team Flare is handled in the anime first. They have a good set-up, but it depends on how many episodes they get in the XY series and if the finale is disappointing or not.
