Since they had previously lied to Sakaki and reported to him they had got Kiteruguma, this puts them in quite a spot!

Haruka a cute
>Three shitty fucking episodes in a rowSM endgame is the worst.
>>38569445 > DP Ash catches a Starly with gust/whirlwind in his first try > XY Ash need "Special training" to overcome "Gust" and can not even touch a Fletchling without Mountain terrain. Even Jotho Ash was better than XY Ash.
>>38574245...that’s manga, OP.
>>38574251I couldn't stand him. He was the one thing that prevented that episode from being perfect.
>>38574265Hikari a cuter.
Aurelia a cutest!
Discover a defect
>>38574442Wasn't a classmate instead of fatfuck.
>>38574450He said flaw.
>>38574315It is true and fact.
They should do only one movie per generation.
>>38574275I hope this is a joke. Wild Pokémon are different every saga
Well, we know aurelia is amazing and canon in SM but I can’t wait for SS Ash x Onodera/Shield to cuck Serena in that timeline.
>>38574909This is not a joke, Jotho and AG Ash both were much better than XY Ash.
>>38574987Then this is a joke. XY Ash was a powerhouse who after losing to Viola, went on a winning streak for the entire series beating every trainer in battle until he got to Wulfric since Greninja had to master it’s new form. XY Ash was skilled and competent the whole series.Johto Ash was only slightly better than Kanto ash since he began batting more fairly and won more Gym battles regularly but wasn’t that great overall
>>38574974>wanting a british girl
>>38574987... Anon, stop.
>>38575014>XY Ash was a powerhouse who after losing to Viola, went on a winning streak for the entire series beating every trainer in battle until he got to Wulfric since Greninja had to master it’s new form. XY Ash was skilled and competent the whole series.Did you even watch XY series? Ash was beaten by a poacher and Kindergarten teacher after he won against Viola,.It was Alain who had winning streak on XY, not Ash. XY Ash weren't a powerhouse, the most notable trainer he defeated in the entire XY series was a newbie trainer. >Johto Ash was only slightly betterJohto Ash was far far better than XY Ash ever was.
>>38574974>Onodera/ShieldThere is another girl
>>38575175No, XY Ash was a powerhouse. He had a few early losses because he had a new team but then went on a tremendous winning streak.
>>38575214XY Ash had loses in all around XY and XY&Z series even after he got Ash-Greninja. Both Johto and AG Ash trumps him as trainer.
>>38575323You didn’t watch XY then. After early XY Ash never loses a battle till we get to Wulfric. And this is including fillers and rivals like Shota/Tierno/Trevor. He wins every fight.
>>38575387>You didn’t watch XY then. After early XY Ash never loses a battle till we get to Wulfric.XY Ash loses to Premere, Poacher, Sanpei, Korrina, Nami, Alain, Shota long before his fight with Wulfric. XY Ash never won every fight, his most notable victory was against a rookie.
>>38575312This. He's a broken record at this point and much of his posts is just headcanon.
>>38575404I am pretty sure you claim anything against XY as headcanon even if they were proven to be canon in the actual anime.
Wait is someone unironically claiming a pre-Hoenn Ash is remotely close to XY Ash? Are you fucking retarded? XY Ash is fucking Elite 4 tier
>>38575463Only this post people can agree with excluding the "notable victory" >>38575401
>>38575485AG Ash defeated two legendary pokemon, won Poke ringer and conquered battle frontier. While the notable trainer XY Ash defeated outside gym leader was a rookie trainer. XY Ash is nothing compare to AG Ash, he was just a bland loser version of Ilima.
>>38575485OS Ash won PI Grand Prix, Pokemon Sumo, Orange League, Big P pokemon race & Extreme pokemon race, broke the winning streak of two strong trainer, defeated many notable trainer outside gym and surpass his main rival. XY Ash failed to surpass his main rival, achieve nothing on Kalos and the notable person he have beaten outside gym leader was a newbie trainer. If it was not for BW series than XY Ash would have been the worst Ash.
>>38575485What is he posing like a chuuni faggot? Is he trying to act cool?
>>38575559That's why he's at school.
>>38575499You mean my post
>>38575565Seriously, i could never identify ash as one of those "cool" shounen protagonists. He's an idiot savant similar to Luffy and goku
>>38575506The last defeat of Ash in XY until his first defeat against Alan is in the chapter 39, which passes 67 episodes undefeated. And his victories outside of gym included: Tesla, Nami, Tierno X2, TrevorX2, Shauna, Shota X3, Butler Count Pumka, Carrie, Team Flare Admin, Miette & Kojiro, Heidayu, A trainer with Scizor, Tomo, Takeru, Ayaka. ..I could continue but I do not want to make you look ridiculous.
>>38575650>muh luffy and gokuReally, nigga?
>>38575175Yeah and Ash lost to Norman just off of Vigoroth using Scratch after the Johto League.
HE HAS RETURNED.
>>38575690S/M Ash was undefeated even longer than that but nobody count him to be better. Also your claim was that XY Ash completely undefeated after his battle with Viola till his battle with Wulfric which I already proven wrong. Also all the people you mentioned were not notable at all, most of them were ether rookies or weak trainer. The only one that worth mentioning is Nami who still defeated Ash's Hawlucha.
>>38575912>returns to remind everyone that he was shitWho else but Gary?
>>38574974You mean you found the next girl you're going to try shitposting with because Serena still makes your sphincter stick out?
>>38576019S/M Ash rarely battles and when he does it's gag shit. He even got a pity badge
>>38576255Same thing applies to XY Ash as well , specially after I cheeked the episode guide.
>>38575608Ya except none of those "cool" shonen protagonist are nearly as popular as Luffy and Goku.
>>38574309Hikari isn't cuter though. She has a prettier though thinner face and a sluttier and gung ho attitude.
>>38576352>I cheeked the episode guideLying so bad you can't even spell?
>>38576352No it doesn’t. Out of all the episodes in XY and XY&Z, not counting TR battles, Ash battled 73 times. 73 out of 140 episodes. Out of the current SM episodes, not counting TR battles, Ash battled 43 times. 43 out of currently 125 episodes.
>>38576518Keep in mind a lot of these are just him and Kiawe going at it a few times or him battling wild Pokémon instead of actual trainers
>>38576475>>38576518Just ignore him, he won't change his mind at all.
>>38576019¡Wrong!Let's see Ash's losing streak in SM: chapter 4, chapter 8, chapter 12, chapter 47, chapter 56, chapter 63 twice, chapter 74, chapter 97, chapter 100, chapter 104, chapter 105.The longest winning streak he has had is from 12 to 47. A total of 35 episodes.
>>38576518As I told you before in other thread, the reason XY seem to have more battle because Kalos had eight gyms. If Ash had to battle eight Kahuna instead four than S/M would have same amount battle due to Ash battle with Gladion, Kiawe, Tapu Koko, Totem pokemon, Team Skull, Masked Royal, Hiroki, Dia, Faba, two ultra beast etc etc.
>>38576673>XY seem to have more>starts listing why it has more and how realistically SM should have more than XY because of trials but it doesn't anyway You're just flip flopping at this point because of your hate boner for XY.
>>38576583Let see Ash's losing streak in XY 05, 12 , 13, 17, 30, 36 86, 99, 106, 116, 119, 120, 131,However you counted unfinished battle from S/M so we also include XY 28, 32, 39 and 63.
>>38574296>Shitty Rocket Gang episode written by Matsui>Shitty flashback episode>Shitty Ultra Guardian episodeThat's three.
>>38576702Nobody flip flopping as hard as you when I have proven that XY Ash beaten no notable trainer outside gym leader except Shota's Mega Sceptile. How is that Ash had 73 battle on Kalos but his only notable victory outside gym is a rookie?
>>38576644All that potencial and it was ruined just to turn her into a waifu character with zero personality.
>>38576741You're flip flopping because you somehow think the rookie wasn't what a player is for the games, you somehow think Ash had more battles in SM when he hasn't, and you talk about no notable trainers when Ayaka also exists as an example. It's just your XY hate boner talking even when you're wrong about it.
>>38576777>you somehow think the rookie wasn't what a player is for the games,Game =/= Anime Shota was just a rookie with plot armor who litterlly gets free Mega ring and Mega Sceptile out of nowhere and reached semi-final because the director didn't bother with introducing a better trainer for Ash to beat in the Semi-final. The kid kept spamming Frenzy Plants and Leaf Storm while completely ignoring the side effect of those moves. >ut no notable trainers when Ayaka also exists as an example You mean a trainer who was so irrelevant that her battle with Ash wasn't even shown at all. Ya Ash most notable victory is a battle that barely even shown , that makes XY even worst.
as someone who only ever saw like one or two episodes of the anime, is it worth a watch from start to finish?id probably be watching while playing the games. the older episodes do look soulful
>>38576821>is it worth a watch from start to finish?Just watch OS to DP series and drop the rest.
>>38576835why is this anon?
>>38576802>kid that wasn't as good but ends up proving he has what it takes and gets good isn't good trainer>know Ayaka beat Ash once but we also know that he got better since then so they show the result insteadYou mean you're letting your hate boner skew your view and making your posts make you look worse than they already are.
>>38576839Because the series went downhill after DP series ended.
>>38576821>>38576839You could watch it until the end of XY if you want. Maybe SM. The only real issue in the middle is BW because it tried a soft reboot of sorts but it got rectified in the middle. As for worth it, I guess pick up from where you left off and go from there.
>>38576723Ash did not lose either in XY 86 or in 99. And I have not added any unfinished battle.
>>38576851It's only been downhill with BW and SM.
>>38576841> A kid who get free thing handed to him and reach semi-final though plot armor suppose to be a good trainer? > A battle that barely even shown suppose to be better than all on screen battle that was shown. At least I am not pretending to like XY because it has idols from Tripokalon.
>>38576872So the reason you actually hate XY is because they included idols when that had nothing to do with the battles? Guess that solves that mystery.
>>38576860Ash lost to Moltres on 86 He loses to Heidayu on 99 and saved by Saizo who oneshot that Bisharp. It made me wonder how weak XY Ash was that he needed a special Greninja to win against a Bisharp that got oneshoted by a Barbaracles. You did add unfinished battle from SM 4, 8 and 12
So where's the anon that posted the movie manga last time?I'm still waiting for the rest of the chapter.
>>38576909The reason I hate XY because the director screwed Ash just to pampered his self inserted fan fiction protagonist.
>>38576866Its been downhill with all series after DP.
>>38576967That's bullshit and you know it.
>>38576967>>>>>implying ash has never been used as a self insert ever before x&y
>>38576975Just BW and SM.
Has anyone noticed that the manga adaptation of M22 kept Donphan?
>>38576821It's been pretty dull and uneventful, with the occasional good episode. Watch XY instead if you haven't.
>>38576989>Donphan learns Flamethrower
>>38576987It was BW, XY and S/M
>>38577020Just BW and SM.
>>38576985 > The fact that Ash does not get anything without losing something in return and doesn't remain undefeated for an entire series proves he was never a self inserted character of writing staff.
>>38576992>>38576866>>38576853those are alot of opinions here, guess theres only really one way to truly find out bois.. wish me luck guise ill come back when im done
>>38576964Summon them with a ritual fire.
>>38576644Reminder that this girl had more character development than the main girl of the series herself. Maybe the anime should have made Korrina the main girl of XY series.
>>38576673No, that has nothing to do with it. Even taking away the gym battles, that only accounts to 10 out of the 74 battles he had in all.
>>38577213>>38576518And just to add insult to injury, out of those 73 battles, Ash lost 15 of them. While out of the 43 in SM, he lost 21 of them. Jesus Christ
>>38576952Ash does not have any combat with Heidayu in 99, only in 100 and in no time the Satoshi Pokemon are defeated. On the other hand Moltres, the match was inconclusive because Ash jumped in to save Talonflame, and he never saw Talonflame KO, if you want then Ash lost to Tapu Koko in the 19 th chapter of SM
Summary for today's Oha:>"Shimofuri Myojyou's Arbitrary Pokémon Anime Theater": Another great arbitraily dubbed scene will be born today?!>The super popular "Oha Suta School Challenge">Don't miss the news on the latest Himitsu x Senshi Phantomirage toys!>The 50m Weekday Dash contest will finally be concluded!

>>38577932>no movie infogay
>>38577932>>The 50m Weekday Dash contest will finally be concluded! Which day will win?!Fug.>>38577949We'd probably get nothing new anyway.
>>38577975The 50m Weekday Dash is a contest they've been doing all week, using a computer system that tracks body movement to let them do various training exercises. Two randomly selected hosts from each day have been doing the 50m dash exercise, with their times being combined to make that day's total time, and they're competing to see which day will have the lowest total.Not sure who's currently in the lead.
>>38578023Also, the "randomly selected" hosts have always been the Oha Girl and one of that day's comedian cohosts, so it's pretty much guaranteed today's team will be Youka and Yamamoto.
>>38577949Why do I get the impression that we're literally going to have to wait for some Japanese guy to go to the movie and sit through the credits before we know who Shoko played?
Youka a cute
Felt like most of the footage was stuff we'd already seen
>Antonio Inoki jokesI love these guys
Today's School Challenge is running exactly 25 meters.
Wow, she was way over.
That's not running.. Cheating little shit.

>>38578275>long objects forcibly jammed into mouths and fluids are spilled everywhere

>Youka takes her shirt offHot
>7.8 secondsShit, I think she beat literally everyone
>>38578339>>38578345What the hell Youka? You trying to shut down Oha?
Wow, the Friday team wrecked everyone.
These are the winners of the 50m Weekday DashSay something nice to them.
Holy shit was that Etsuko Kozakura?
Youka is absolutely based.
>>38578368Youka and Matsumaru are cute.
Today's riddle: Move two tiles to make the equation go up.
>Yamamoto accidentally showed the answerHahah, that's the problem with doing this live
>and Youka revealed the wrong answerwow
>>38578438Yeah, >>38578402 is right. She flipped the wrong number.
Oh, this scene of KIII catching the thrown Pokeball in mid air and grinding in into dust was new too I think.Hard to get a screenshot of it that shows what happened, though.
>>38578467Nah it was in last week's preview
>>38578505Oh, it was? Everything was just old footage then, gay.
>>38578447She is right. Order of operation. The 9x3 is done first, so it's 9x3=27, the it becomes 9+27=36
>>38578519Oooh.I was never good at math.
>>38578426>>38578447>>38578402is this bait? thats wrong
>>38578934It's right if you think (6+6)*3 instead of 6+(6*3)

The Olympia Gym match was a weird one. It was visually impressive and loved all the aerial battling and psychic attacks. Ash's pokemon took way too much damage and didn't faint, but I liked how he used strategy in the battle and turned their attacks against them.
Watching the hoopa movie pikachu short. Are the Torchic, Croagunk, Buneary, Politoed, Snorlax, etc. meant to be illusions to the past main casts pokemon?
>>38579422Probably, but that whole short was really nothing more than a glorified music video for the Little Glee Monster song.
>>38579292Pikachu didnt' do any attacks, just timed future sight, so yes
>>38579292Pikachu was just acting like a metronome. using a wristwatch would've been even more helpful, and nobody would've called that illegal.
Watching this Hoopa movie short. Why did the XY movies get these prequel episodes? The Diancie one had one too.
Yes I realize I'm watching in weird order but what the hell
Why the fuck does Iwane keep drawing Virgil, that shitty BW character who won the league? Ash never even battled him and he was like some glorified Eevee advertisement. Iwane has drawn him like 5 times now on twitter
>>38579556Japan likes Virgil. Deal with it.
>>38579578They need to find new characters to like.
So, is Ash able to cook and clean now? That was Tomiyasu's excuse after all.
>>38579556I'm more surprised Iwane regularly retweetts Hainchu's and black_pepper's art, both of them have drawn tons of lewd art of pokegirls. Iwane doesn't retweet the lewd pics but since he follows their twitters he certainly sees them. Half of Hainchu's art has Dawn half naked with her skirt riding up or her shirt torn off, and black_pepper draws tons of lewd art with May, Dawn, Serena, etc. being half nude or with huge breasts. His most recent pic is a Lana one with her shirt unzipped showing the sides of her breasts.Why does Iwane follow artists who draw lewd art?
Iwane has probably drawn nude art of Pokegirls but keeps them private since official anime staff would likely be fired if that's ever put out in the open, even on private pixiv pages or whatever
When does the last Mega evolution special fit in? Can I watch it now or should I start XYZ?
>>38579757Immediately before XYZ, SO now.
I love how ORAS gave a chance for the writers to completely redeem Groudon Vs. Kyorge and Steven. It's very rare the anime gets a second chance to re-do what they fucked up the first time around.
>>38579817>It's very rare the anime gets a second chance to re-do what they fucked up the first time around.You mean like how they had a second chance to do May and thus made Dawn?
>>38579883>We didn't plagiarize Ash's traits enough, so we're going to try againSeems legit.
>>38579883They're completely different characters whose arcs played out completely differently so no. The thing they did do was differentiate Contests more from normal battles in DP, with more emphasize on appeals and type combinations rather than just battling.
>>38579972And then they rehashed Dawn's girly traits and love for fashion onto Serena after that
WTF! In Mega Evo 4 when Manon comes into to look at the globe, they show our real-life Earth, with North America/South America and then Europe/Africa spinning. That's not the pokemon world...
I find it very strange how the anime handled Mega evolutions. They didn't properly debut each Mega evo in an episode like all regular pokemon, most barely appeared outside of montages or whatever you saw in the Mega evo specials. Even all the Alola variants got proper showcasing. There's so many Mega evolutions that never got any focus in the anime, and they're technically new pokemon with no screentime in the show.
>>38580044Yes it is. See: the globe in the SM MC's room.
>>38579998Just without the Ash traits and actually act like a girl.
>>38580113So Alan leveled up his Charizard in 10 battles in a row, no wonder why Ash couldn't beat him
Alan defeated an Elite 4's pokemon, her Mega Houndoom was defeated. Is this the first time we ever saw an Elite 4 member lose a pokemon in the anime?
>>38579127>idles in everything againLargo's mom will be avenged.
These trainer designs in Mega evo 4 are cool
These 4 specials prove what a well thought out story Pokemon could have if it wasn't spread out over 3-4 years and was allowed to tell self contained stories. I really enjoyed these specials.
>>38580123THIS. FUCKING. THIS. Reminder that even nips consider Dawn as masculine because of being a competitive chick alongside May and Misty. And being a competitive girl is an extremely negative trait for them to the point of finding them undesirable, unattractive and uncute.
>>38579617Tomiyasu just went "fuck you vievers" and said that to troll the fanbase. Consider that tweet as a huge middle finger and a full application of this trope. https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TakeThatAudience
>>38580239How much of a raise did Shizue get?
when Lana's mom will get an official name? can someone ask the staff?
>>38580312So much of a raise that she had enough to retire, which is how we ended up with M22.
>>38580243That because tomboys are shit.
>>38580407Gotta get between ZR
>>38580420Off the computer Ash.
So I'll start watching XYZ tomorrow, I've watched all of XY and the 4 Mega Evo specials and the two movies so far.I'd give the series an 8.5 out of 10. For the most part my thoughts on the series mirror most others, it has some consistently good and great episodes with Ash and his companions and their pokemon being generally enjoyable and fun to watch. Some negatives are that Team Rocket are in nearly every single episode again, and Serena's character arc and showcases take too long to get going, but other than that I have no real complaints. Even the rivals being "lackluster" don't bother me because we're not supposed to care about Trevor and Tierno is actually amusing and I like Shota so far. Serena's rivals are fine especially Millefeui. Bonnie/Clemont are the highlight of the series for me, and the battles/animation is top notch.Some other complaints is I do wish G.oodra stuck around longer, and the Malamar needed a final episode, but so far it's been a good series. The Chespin fillers tend to be the worst eps of the series for me, but otherwise it's been an enjoyable run and I know XYZ is even better. I've seen a lot of eps from the latter portion as that's when I picked it up regularly, but I'm excited to revisit them now that I've watched the beginning properly.
>>38580618>hating on the best antagonist in the series Fuck off marathon anon
>>38580478What is her other hand doing
>>38581030Getting more nectar for puffs ready.
>>38580385Hoping Faggotmon doesn't read your post. He'll unleash his sjw feminazist empowered textwall about how girly and quiet girls that ooze feminity from their skin are boring cardboards and how abusive, mean, rude and foul mouthed overachieving masculine tsunbitches are the real and funniest (wo)men.
>>38579883Are you implying that this is a fuck up?
>>38581291She chose the dick over her dreams, not even Serena did that.
>>38581415Serena's using her dreams for the dick though. And Pikachu.
>>38581415Even if that was the case (she's a traveling coordinator), what's so bad about that? Unlike most of the protagonists she actually has both of her parents, so she probably wants to start a family at some point.
Who is luckier...Ash or Drew in regards to Serena and Mays bodies and in bed?
>>38581548Does it matter? They're both chumps.
>>38581548>Ash>SerenaShe is never going to be seen again anon. That precedent was already established with Iris.
>>38580179Technically, yes. But Flint was confirmed to have lost 2 of his Pokemon to Cyntha during their off-screen battle.
>>38581844She'll show up whenever she shows up. Meanwhile you'll still sit here fuming whenever they bring her up and give you your constant reminder about Ash and Serena.
Serena's butt is mine
>>38581877Off the fucking internet Ash.
>>38581879To be fair, Serena already knows it's his
>>38581872>she'll show up when she shows up No she won't, how is that hard to understand?
>>38581872How many generations will she not have to show up in until you people admit that she will never come back, neither will any other pokegirl. There is no competition, Serena isn't special compared to anyone else. The quicker you accept this the quicker these threads will become less carcinogenic.
>>38581884>literally forgets that game remakes are a matter of when and not ifWhat's so hard to understand that she'll show up whenever it could be whether a decade or two or more from now? Doesn't change that you're still being reminded of her and you're stuck in a Chinese Tapestry worrying about it.
>>38581932>Gen 6>remakesThey are stopping after Gen 5. It makes no sense to remake Gen 6.
>>38581908You're somehow implying the threads haven't been more carcinogenic anyway.
>>38581967Every gen is going to have nostalgia and you're going to get your remakes anyway. Whether it's good or bad will be for some generation in the far future to decide unless Pokemon goes bankrupt.
I want to marry Pikarla and get Pheromosa for a pet.
>>38581990Considering gen 6 is one of the worst gens with Gen 7, I don't think it has the same nostalgia factors of any other gen up to Gen 5.
>>38582002Gen 6's problem was that they didn't include some stuff and got basically rushed out in favor of Gen 7 because of the anniversary and because of the 3DS's life. Gen 7's problem was basically rushed out and got another game that included ULTRA CHANGES instead of being in the first sets.
>>38582024Yes, and the only hope for remakes would be fixing their mess instead of it being remakes for nostalgia. They should just remake both gens now but without megas, zmoves, or alolan forms.
>>38582024What they should have done with Gen 7 was instead of releasing two upper versions of SM they should have released Prism and Z.
>>38582057Megas are fine as long as they fix some stuff. It's really the Z-moves and how the incorporated hula into their activation that limits them. As for Alolan forms, that was just literally trying to make more types for LG's limited 151 Pokemon because you know that type spread was shit back then and it was shit now without the Alolan forms.
>>38581908Not much of a competition when she's pretty much the only one, is it?
>>38582107Only one what? There is no competition for anyone to appear again, anon. I never mentioned Ash once. Every past Pokegirl is gone, Serena isn't special. The only one that has the slightest of chance to reappear soon is Dawn for the potential DP remake but I don't see them bringing her back, even though she is popular.
We're never going to see her again after November are we?
>>38582127Unless they decide to go the ORAS contest route and slap it on the new girl instead.
>We will never get a main girl crushing on ash!>happens>ash will never get kissed on the lips!>happens>misty will never return!>returnsThe anime has proved you wrong time and again. Serena will return whenever it's time to give ash a closure
>>38575554>Alan>rival>also saving the region (and literally the whole worl) is achieve notingHAHAHA
>>38582447> XY fans are so desperate that they trying to ignore Alain status as main rivalPokemon anime always has a villainous arc about "Saving the world" in every series and movie. Again XY fans are treating common thing that happen in every series as special because XY did it.
>>38582538>being so desperate you can't differentiate things then try shifting the blame on others
>>38582588> Being so desperate that your only way is to attack the poster rather than proving your point
>>38577213Unless you count out all the battle Ash had with gym leaders outside of their gym. Ash at least had three battle with Clemont and probably two battle with Korrina outside of their gym.
>>38582600>being so desperate you think you even have a point when you can't differentiate things then keep blaming it on others
>>38581932lmao serena can't even appear in the timeframe most characters appear in and amourfags like you are talking about the chances a decade from now. the writers won't even throw a mere reference her way, they've completely iced her off the show.
>>38582620> Being so desperate that you ignore all the point has been given to you and came up with nonsensical claim to carry out the discussion.
>>38582635Considering how the series has been right now rather than iced she lucked out and dodged the bullet Dawn couldn't.
>>38582660What are you going to do when Serena doesn't even get a mention next gen?
>>38582538>antiXYfag pretending a guy that Ash didn't even meet until the last episodes of the series was "the main rival">also pretending Ash has saved the world from the apocalypse before
>>38582635>lmao misty can't even appear in the timeframe most characters appear in and mistyfags like you are talking about the chances a decade from now. the writers won't even throw a mere reference her way, they've completely iced her off the show.FTFY
>>38582703>What are you going to do when Serena doesn't even get a mention next gen?Serenafags don't care when and where she returns as long as she remains the Endgame. It's (you) who's obsessed with her cameo
>>38582919>>antiXYfag pretending a guy that Ash didn't even meet until the last episodesAsh met him long before the Kalos League, he met him before the eight gym.>>also pretending Ash has saved the world from the apocalypse beforeHave you watched any series before XY ?
>>38583247>Ash met him long before the Kalos League, he met him before the eight gym.A rival is someone who's introduced early in the Saga like Gary, Paul and trip. Not even Sawyer is worth calling a rival. You could say XY had no "rivals" at all, It sucked in that department
>>38583261>A rival is someone who's introduced early in the Saga like Gary, Paul and trip.That your opinion, not fact. Morrision was introduced very late on Hoenn but he still count as Ash's rival on Hoenn series. May also met Drew at mid series and Harley at the end, both of them are her major rivals. Alain and Shota are Ash's rival, however it is Alain who count as a main rival.
>>38583279Yajima said that alan is an anti-hero. You can't call him a rival>inb4 b-but that's just his opinion!
>>38583279>Alain and Shota are Ash's rivalWhat? But there are two of them. How can they be a rival (singular) when there are two of them?
>>38583289>Yajima said that alan is an anti-heroYou mean the director who doomed the whole series to pamper his Alain. Rivals are often treated as anti-hero in multiple battle related anime.
>>38583290Just like Ash had four rivals on Sinnoh
>>38583247>he met him before the eight gymThat's why I'm saying you fucking retard, it was at the end of the series>Have you watched any series before XY?Have you? The only times Ash actually saved the world was in some movies
>>38583368>it was at the end of the seriesIt was nowhere the end of the series since Ash didn't even reach the eight gym. >Have you?I did and every series had an arc revolving evil team threatening the world.But again , you are the same guy who claim Jimmy and Marina to be 10 year old like Ash. I guess you just going ignore common thing that happened in all the series to make XY look special.
>>38581244This is /vp/, anon. Everyone here hates tomboys.
Is it worth it to watch the entire anime from beginning to end
>>38583435It's gay to like tomboys.
>>38583444>2011+8>not being gay
>>38583484A morning kiss for the thread! Wake up!!
>>38583390>between the seventh and last gym, which comes right before the tournament that marks the end>n-nowhere close the end I swear!Fucking retard>every series had an arc revolving evil team threatening the world.You can stop lying now>you are the same guy who claim Jimmy and Marina to be 10 year old like Ash.Literally what the fuck are you even talking about
>>38583289The show literally calls him a rival
>>38582609Why would I count all of that out?
>>38583716Only way to make SM look vaguely non-pathetic.
>>38583716Because you claim how gyms had nothing to do with XY having many battles.
>>38583639>>n-nowhere close the end I swear!Oh I guess the DP series was near its end when Ash defeated Candice even though it took one year for Ash to get his eight badge >You can stop lying now You can stop ignoring all series except XY >Literally what the fuck are you even talking aboutDon't lie to me, it was you
>>38583750Do you think I give a dam about S/M? Truth is, I had no expectation for S/M after Ash lost the Kalos League.
>>38583766This logic makes no sense. Having a battle with a Gym Leader outside of a Gym or without official sanctions isn’t a gym battle. Do you know how many fucking times Ash and Brock went at it? Would I count each and every one of those as an official gym battle? XY has 8 Gym battles and 2 rematches, only amounting to 10 battles in total. If I took your bait and count his battles with Korrina and Clemont outside the gyms, then that would be 19, out of 74 fucking battles.
>>38584074>Having a battle with a Gym Leader outside of a Gym or without official sanctions isn’t a gym battleI was talking about Ash battling the gym leaders, not just battling in the gym. I told you before, XY had more battles because Kalos had eight gym leaders compare to Alola that has only four Kahuna. Because of that, XY had more opportunity for battles unlike S/M that has only Grand trials in a region half the size of Hoenn. Remember that Ash had two battles with two Kahuna in Alola.>count his battles with Korrina and Clemont outside the gyms, then that would be 19, out of 74 fucking battles. Unless you count all the trainer and their status as trainer. Most trainer XY Ash defeated outside gym leaders were newbie and weaker trainer such as Shota, Travor, Tierno and Chester. The only trainers that had some level of experience would Nami and Heidayu, however both of them has defeated Ash in their first battle. Rest of them would be grunt, gym leader's aide and trainers Ash couldn't defeat. Tell me, how is it that XY had 74 battle yet only notable victory Ash had was against a rookie with special treatment?
>>38583848You sit here all day bashing S/M series and Matsui yet can not handle when I actually point out that XY is not a masterpiece like you claim it to be. At least I am not hypocrite! I have no problem with you bashing S/M series but I do have problem when you treat XY as masterpiece and campaign for Yajima despite the series was just as disappointing as S/M series.
>>38584428>Tell me, how is it that XY had 74 battle yet only notable victory Ash had was against a rookie with special treatment?Didn’t he beat Zapdos?
>>38584514Nope since Zapdoes was still fine
>>38584514Just don't reply.
>>38584522Zapdos was falling to its death
>>38584528Just like it was falling to its death when Hawlucha kicked him?
>>38584545No as in it got hit so hard that it fell unconscious and Ash was concerned because it would have died had TR not attempted to capture it immediately after
This is my wife, say something nice to her.
>>38584579Looks like my wife.
>>38584574When Gen 8’s anime is announced in July
>>38584573>No as in it got hit so hard that it fell unconsciousExcept it didn't, it was still conscious and capable of flight.
>>38584600Can't fucking wait.
>>38584579I hope she will be a good sister-in-law to your sister Bonnie.
>>38584600I don't think so, if pokemon anime does not get rid off all the stupid limitation they put on Ash to maintain his status quo than the next series will be as disappointing as previous series.
>>38584574>Hype when?After pokemon anime get rid off all the limitation on Ash.
>>38584605It was falling with its eyes closed
>>38584646It did the same when Hawlucha kicked him
>>38584600I'm almost scared.
When does the blu ray go up for sale? Gonna flex on the neetbuckers.
>>38584649And when that happened they didn’t show Ash concerned about its well being. When Noivern beat it they did. Because they clearly knew it was gonna die had someone not stopped it’s fall
>>38584708>And when that happened they didn’t show Ash concerned about its well being. When Noivern beat it they did.Ash being concerned for it does not really proved anything, Zapdos weren't KOed and still conscious enough to fight. Just getting a lucky hit on Zapdoes does not mean winning.
