>After reuniting with the ninja boy Sanpei and his Greninja, Ash and his friends get invited to a festival being held in the ninja village. The group has fun at the festival, interacting with the villagers, but suddenly trouble occurs when the village elder is abducted by a mysterious ninja army.
Most other anime romances would have at least some more progression by now. XY80 didn't really do anything other than have Serena say something in the heat of the moment, then completely regress 10 episodes later.
>Most other anime romances would have at least some more progression
You wish. All we got from most anime nowaday are basically:
>MC and girl blushing while looking to each other
>TO BE CONTINUED S2 NEVER
>tfw Charizard understands Manon's feelings better than Alan does
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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?"
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?
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?
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.
google translate page it should be readable.
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/
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.
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.
When will you guys realize Serena isn't nearly as well written as you guys seem to think she is?
Sorry, but contrary to what the improved animation may suggest, DP and AG will always be the best pokemon series. Get over it.
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.
>Return of the entire rival trio
>best XY gym yet
>Lots of Flare hype
>Possibly the hypest evolution yet
Just keep watching you faggot
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.
>random shitposter repository
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.
With dialogue like that, you may as well join Tumblr shipping circles.
I'm still waiting for the Shoko special where all her characters come together so every character in the episode is voiced by her. Infi narrates it.
will do, I'm excited. I've heard it's good from a few different sources, I was initally under the impression it's been terrible since johto or something. it's nice to watch the anime again, I've only kept up with some of the movies so far here and there.
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.
>*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
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.
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 keep hearing BW is terrible since coming back on /vp/
With good reason.
>Everything else about BW was trash.
How about fuck you.
Ash was shit, but I must admit I genuinely enjoyed BW most of the time up until Season 2 when Cameron first appeared. There were some horrible episodes like the Cottonee one and almost anything involving Axew, but I found it pretty watchable when it was still moving. And of course >>24618601 is a thing as well.
especially the movie ones
We'll we see the girl in the hallway ever again?
Tell that to whoever you are actually referring to
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.
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.
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.
He should be even more ashamed of the NEET lifestyle he's adopted. Just imagine how many girls would be lusting hard after the cute, clumsy nerd boy who lives in the fucking national momument of Kalos.
Speaking of which, does Lumiose have arrondissements like Paris does?
Hell, is there even a municipality system in the Pokémon world?
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.
Preach it, brotha.
I like how there are actually people moving about in the city and not just empty space. Strangely, we rarely get these crowd shots anymore. Anistar itself seemed pretty empty, and I don't see a nearby town or city in the upcoming episodes other than the ninja villages.
Only if there is wincest end.
We need more of these kinds of stills. Like, damn, all of the scenic shots are so well-done and beautiful. The anime truly did Kalos justice.
>how there are actually people moving about in the city
>Anistar itself seemed pretty empty
Uh, not really?
Fuck this shit. Seriously, just fucking end it.
XY gives the vibes of "this is the end"
Seriously, don't even end the anime, just make him win the fucking league and lose to the Elite 4 and then make Ash goes to the next region there.
Just finish XY in a nice note. Please. They fucking can't after giving all that hype and buildup
Also i can't stop listening to that fucking opening. Jesus christ that opening is so fucking amazing.
Trolling aside, I don't think Iwane even understood completely what all that English even meant. All his replies to that autist were just along the lines of "watch and see" and "do you think so?"
because /vp/ has a shit taste. Episodes before league and after it are awesome. BW is the most fun season and there are like almost zero boring fillers. Even TR stopped being annoying for a while.
I never realized that Greninja crosses his arms in the intro.

Why is she sad, /vp/?
Why didn't you protect her smile?
Das some good hair animation bruh
she is pretty based
>and her partner getting legendary aids after basedly saving a legendary pokemon
you make me laugh so hard with this sentence
Is there anywhere corresponding to Versailles?
Quite a few things were nice about BW. How could you hate on our orgasmic blonde model queen?
BW was a high point of SS.
God Unova was shit. It makes me sad since White is my favorite game in the series.
If I didn't know any better, I'd say they deliberately made Ash shit to try and get the OK to replace him in the next arc.
look at her, so adorable with those qt plusle and minun
At least she kept a stiff upper lip.
>in actuality, one of those characters went over the edge, another is heartbroken, another is in a coma, another is literally Hitler, another has been played like a damn fiddle, another couldn't meet his former assistant or do anything for one of his former starters, another is Hitler's sidekick and another is the latter's co-worker who's none the wiser about her side occupation
Why is everyone in ME so DAMAGED?
Holy fuck, those pictures are always great.
A small thing that makes all the difference, i love when they just show cities and such with Ash being just a person running/talking/doing things while other people interact and live their lives.
Those are the small detais that make this anime so good.
Also, it's a great wallpaper.
Even bonnie has achieved more than serena and she doesn't even has age to be a trainer
Serena cut her hair to be a more confident and changed person. Too bad that doesn't apply to her crush, which honestly seems like her biggest obstacle.
Maybe that wigglytuff isn't native from kalos
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.
Bonnie would be able to keepu ash for herself, but i bet she likes to trigger serena as well
Characters in Pokemon never change drastically. Serena is just more focused and confident now that she has something to strive for. Outside of that she's still the same character. Her timidity with dealing with her crush is still strong.
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?
What's the point of a chan in the fucking pokémon world?
Surely i can imagine people lusting over tripokalon contestants and such, gym leaders but, damn, how can one person FAIL in the pokémon world where you just need to give orders to a pet?
Reminder that Ash didn't win against Olympia with skill. He just had numbers on his side
>drawing by Aito Ohashi (one of the key animators of XY&Z01)
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.
Don't let any delusional Misty or original trio fans trick you, they don't watch the show, they're just butt-mad about Misty.
The anime gets consistently better after Misty leaves.
She realizes that the best way to Ash's heart is through his Pikachu.
Finally got an excuse to use this image
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.
>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?
Does anyone rewatch some of the sad moments of pokemon? I'm feeling the feels with all these scenes where ash lets butterfree go, almost leaving pikachu, leaving charizard. It brings back memories of my childhood.
just rewatched him leaving numelgon behind. Dammit Ash, you still make me cry even when im 22 years old. This show is too good I'm glad its still alive and much better than its garbage BW series
Nothing wrong with that, there are people old enough here to be a parent of a young Pokegirl. Doesn't mean they can't like them.
>yfw pikachu and braxien are in the same egg group
>yfw iron tail is and egg move for fennekin
do you even try to shitpost anon? im disappointed in you.
>because stating that she will no longer have a crush on ash will mean it'll be that way.
Ash can't be with a girl and Serena's crush on Ash has stagnated. Just look at pic related
Because Serena isn't ready to admit her feelings, suddenly she doesn't have a crush on Ash? You're confusing me anon.
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.
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.
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.
That would basically be the producers ignoring the fans after their atrocity from Unova. That doesn't prove your point in any way.
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.
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.
>"ayy tell us your Top 5 Pokemon XY(&Z) non-Gym episodes"
Well, what do you answer to the ayylmaos?
>You don't know what would happen
Face it. The chances of Ash winning Serena are lower than Clemont winning her. Even if you ignore all the Clemont/Serena's connections, Ash is permanent and Clemont/Serena aren't.
>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. For now its amour, not geekship so for now, geekship is nonexistent while amour is somewhat there.
I just love spreading the amour!
>Your logic is irrelevant anon
There's no logic, he only shitpost the thread because is a Pealshipper and hates the relationship between Serena and Ash, nothing more.
i think thats the one. Some comic with a hex maniac claiming to love ash and being hers only, with gold having psychic abilities stronger than her while hating Ash? I couldn't stop laughing
>They owe it to us.
They don't owe us shit and much less us gaijins.
>I forgot to mention Olympia of all people
Fuck me and my tired self, I should sudoku for that mistake.
He was one of the 24 key animators on the brobowl.
>decide to watch XY because the holy fucking shit based XYZ opening
>dat Talonflame evolution
Jesus christ. I don't want to get off this wild ride.
/padt/ before the Olympia gym battle:
>it'll be Thunder Armor 2.0
>they'll asspull a gym battle evolution to give Frogadier a Psychic type immunity
>Talonflame will job to make Frogadier/Greninja shine
/padt/ after the Olympia gym battle:
>motherfucking hidden ability support Meowstic
>dat teamwork between Frogadier and Talonflame
>Frogadier struggled with paralysis throughout the entire battle and constantly needed Talonflame's help
>holy shit that Future Sight counter
>Talonflame didn't job!
>no evolution and FATHER-SON KAMEHAMEHA MOTHERFUCKERS!
>this is the best gym battle ever
she makes a sexy team rocket grunt who already surpasses many
Don't remind me....
At least Olympia was cool ;_;
Well duh, hell, she had potential for even more. And the related Pokeball factory episode could have been also great. Just shame all around.
>I don't want to get off this wild ride
Nobody really does
>so for now
Yes, FOR NOW Serena likes Ash. But given Ash can't be with girls, the series has romance in it, and all the things that Clemont/Serena have in common…pretty obvious how it's going to end up.
>he removed the glove off his right hand so he could grab that ass better
good luck unseeing this
>yfw there's actually a fanfiction in which Serena gets involved in some kind of accident prior to Ash starting his journey which turns her into a Pikachu, and it is this Serena Pikachu that Ash ends up with as his starter
Pikachu was literally a clock. Nothing more. Ash could have just used a real clock or something and it would still be the same.
Pikachu didn't battle so it's 2vs2. Nothing more to that.
Make up a scenario for that, I'd like to see how it goes.
The sad thing is BW started off so promising. I loved Giovanni coming back as a main villain. Cilan was an improvement over DP Brock as well.
The quicker pacing, Don battle tournaments, and Ash capturing more than 6 pokemon were all good ideas in theory, they just didn't execute them very well.
Why is it so quiet?
Who here is gonna be gone for the next few days playing F4?
Also they revelead 10 episode titles as far ahead as February in last year's issue of November. I am thinking they would do the same this time too and that would be hype as fuck.
Doesn't change the complain, that 200 episodes for a single badge quest is just ridicilous with still that low amount of development episodes percetage wise.
AG did twice as much in the same time and AG was somehow fillerish.
>not posting the superior version
>>yfw there's actually a fanfiction
I read up to this part and expected autism, but now I actually want to read this through. Should give me good laughs if it's not good anyway. Go on.
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.
Make it happen /padt/.
The PikaSere ship must be a thing.
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.
