First for Serena is based
>>46777418Truth. Still remember the haircut ep day. Half of /vp/ was just /padt/ and other anime threads.
Lana best girl>>46777416A fucking disaster, an Iris returning celebration turned into another genwar
XY companions will never return
Have these people really not moved on from a series that ended five years ago?
>>46777619Pokemon has not produced a better season than XY yet. PM has potential but writers are wasting it on fillers for some unknown reason.
>>46777619XY was a self-insert paradise, they'll never fully move on.
>>46777647I find it weird they put so much detail into that Serena shot when all it was used for was her Eevee seemingly missing in the dressing room from what I remember.
>>46777619Tells you something about the quality of the series that ended five years ago and the quality of the one airing now
>>46777395XY vs SM arguments are the most retarded things in these threads
>>46777662an attempt to elicit more emotion from the audience for the moment by making it overdramatic.this happens a lot in that series
>>46777619Nope, but they are autist so this behavior is expected.
>>46777641>>46777665I mean DP aired ages ago and is also considered to be better than SM or PM, but you don't see /padt/ circlejerking about it.
>>46777662Hm? I remember it actually being an important episode so it's no wonder that shot was stylized and directed that well as XY often was to punctuate important scenes and add yes, to elicit emotion which is what a show should do lol.
>>46777720Unless I'm remembering wrong, wasn't it just from her Eevee getting stage fright? I don't think that was so important to give Serena the most detailed and adult looking expression. That design should have been used for something bigger or more important.
I miss the production quality from XY. Everything just looked way better, was more detailed and had more shadows.
>>46777720a show shouldn't try to be overdramatic, anon. the writers definitely learned this because they cut that shit out for the most part after the end of XY.
DP wanking is usually on twitter. Anyway, all these people are autistic. The Pokémon anime isn’t good enough to be this obnoxious and obsessed about it.
>>46777731The Evee/Serena dynamic was a pretty important relationship in XY/XYZ with Eevee's hesitancy to perform and Serena's to show Eevee dancing to the world was a pretty significant plotpoint so wouldn't it make sense to have Serena that detailed because Eevee not being able to perform was a pretty big deal?
>>46777742Most of twitter grew up with DP as their first series. Makes sense when you look at their current ages and remember DP started 15 years ago now.Anyone who is 20 right now was only 5 years old back in 2006.
>>46777735Don't think it was overdramatic. Overdramatic would be like in Death Note with the scene where Light ate a potato chip(even though I thought that scene is great)
So what the fuck happened to have the XYfags doing their usual damage control?
>>46778079They were saying that SM was skippable to some anon who hadn't watched the show since Sinnoh, SMfags countered that it wasn't skippable due to its character dynamics and family theme, and XYfags took it as a slight and started posting pics of the XY cast standing together.
>>46778057>kasumi flowers>kasumi returns months laterbased foreshadowing
Are there any Pokémon YouTubers that DON’T have the autism voice?
>>46777706I can make that a circlejerk based on DP just so people shut up
>>46778127>Kasumi = Misty Like clockwork
I finally noticed something now that I start watching again.>jap dub w/ jap pokemon names and moves>jap dub w/ eng pokemon names and moves>eng dubNo matter what I choose I'm fucked in some way
>>46778250What's your preferred combination?
>>46778250Even if I'm watching subtitles with all Nip words, I can recognise the Nip names for pokemon after a while but I still think of them in their english forms.Does anyone actually say yayakoma when talking about a fletchling for example? Real people, autists on bulbapedia don't count
>>46778127Is Misty the only companion that's been referenced in every series? In the OS, in AG, the lure in DP, the Charizard flashback in BW, the flowers in XY, in SM, and in the Kanto gym leader silhouette in PM. Her longevity in the show is crazy.
>>46778273She had no reference in XY
i wantr to smell koharus feet
>>46778273yup, brock and tracey aren't referenced in xy so its only her
>>46777451I miss them so much bros
>>46778304Do you miss the Alola gang?
>>46778261I haven't watched the anime since like 2007 when I was a kid. Guess how I watched it then
>>46778323Are you doing a full run through the anime from the beginning anon? I'm going to do that in a few weeks myself
Yeah, I'm thinking drizzile's going to be based.
Does anyone else think Iris is gonna be top 8 champion?
>>46778384Game Iris yes, anime Iris no
>>46778384We already know she isn't even in Hyper class.
>>46778402Should’ve of clarified. I meant later on.
>>46778384Nah, she's only average in the anime.We know four of the final eight (Ash, Leon, Lance and Raihan), so there's only four other slots open. I could see Cynthia being one due to all the DP stuff, probably no other regional champion though.
>>46778422Cynthia is def gonna be in the top 8. Safest pick imo. Spoilers have implied that Iris has become much stronger than before.
if ash makes it to the final match i think the people that he'll end up beating in the masters tournament to get there are raihan and gary.just a feeling i have but i don't think they'll have him beat an actual champion. maybe i'm wrong but i don't see it.
>>46778469Ash still hasn’t beaten an E4
>>46778469I could see Ash beating Lance in the semi-finals just to more or less solidify that he's the strongest trainer from his home region. It'd be cathartic in a way.
>>46778331I'll just go from BW to latest episode with jap dub
>>46778384Fuck Iris.Hope after Ash beats her she gets dunked on by everyone else and falls in the rankings.
oh god oh fuck, we're going to have to watch gigachu battles again sooner or latterthat shit sucks so much ass, gigamantix was such a horrible idea
>>46778503Understandable if you want to catch up to the modern anime since the fifth generation did a reset. If you do have time to go all the way back you’re missing out, BW is shit and some of the best happened before that series
>>46778537I remember thinking that mega evolution was retarded when it came out. I’ve been humbled now
>>46778162No,you need to be either autistic or an attention whore to become a poketuber.
>>46778541Don't worry anon. I did watch all of the anime when I was a kid. The one-two punch of that dude with darkrai and latios then pikachu being beaten by a snivy made my autism go on overdrive then
>>46778565>The one-two punch of that dude with darkrai and latios then pikachu being beaten by a snivy made my autism go on overdrive thenBased
Who's getting Absol?
>>46778731*Gho's getting Absol
>>46779027Guess " new characterization " in this context means that Gary's going to have a different goal/arc in Journeys?If that's the case, there's a high chance Gary might become a recurring character.
>>46779131If Gary is in the tournament and ends up being a reoccurring character then there's no doubt in my mind he'll make it to masters.
>>46779142Depends on if they bring back other characters like Paul, Alain, Sawyer, etc
>>46779155I don't think they will, especially Alain. The only Charizard the writers want people to focus on at the moment is Leon's.
>>46779265It's incredible he still hasn't gotten the message that he isn't welcome here and he shot himself in the foot.
I miss the hype train bros.
>>46779383>BergmiteKek that brings me back. What other mons did we speculate Ash would get? I only remember Aegislash and Gogoat for XY and Passimian and A-Sandslah for SM.
>>46779407Trevenant as a grassmon in XY.
>>46778273She is in fact the most important Pokegirl. It is worth remembering that she had several clones throughout the series and her gags (example, getting in the way of Brock hitting on girls) continued in the series even after she left.
>>46779407Not really /padt/ speculation since we didn't exist back then but a lot of fans thought he would get the Hippopotas from the Hunter J espiodes back in early DP
>>46779896Not that guy but while I get that they have the same name, I always understood the interview that brought attention to the flowers themselves was talking more about their meaning in the "language of flowers" symbolism than tying their meaning directly into a character from Pokémon.So it feels like the assertion that the meaning is because they want you to think about a character who at the time's last appearance was in a flashback in BW who's named the same is a bit disingenuous.
For the other main girls, May was in DP, she appeared in BW's endings and the flashback in the last ep, didn't have anything in XY, nothing in SM unless you count the Movie 8 wig with the ribbon on TR's hairstand on one of the early SM fillers.Dawn was in BW, she didn't get anything in XY (Ash referenced Piplup but not Dawn herself), and nothing in SM.
>>46779956considering they've made it a note to include misty in some way in every other series, it makes sense that the flowers would be a reference to her.
>>46780039Why would they reference Misty in an episode Serena kissed Ash? Not to mention Yajma directed that ep and he no reason to reference the first female companion who was gone from the show for about 15 years at that point.
>>46780050what the fuck does serena have to do with anything? why would they not be able to reference misty because of her?
XY was the last season that I was genuinely hyped the whole way through.
>>46779956>meaning in the "language of flowers" symbolismLet's talk about things that seem forced. What does innocence and purity in the heart have to do with XY? Seriously speaking, what does that mean? After you finish watching XY do you really feel it? Was the series about that?>tying their meaning directly into a character from Pokémonokay, but with so many flowers for them to put, why just one with the name of a very well-known character?A symbolism that honestly seems empty for what the series showed (Really, innocence and purity in the heart ???)I think it's a very big coincidence.>last appearanceAppearance is not exactly an argument when it comes to Pokémon.The characters appear in their series and then practically never again. Misty is still an exception for being mentioned in almost all of them. >>46778273
>>46777619The series ended 10 years ago.
>>46780050Tomioka was the writer of the episode, he is one of the ones who made more episodes with hints of pokeshipping
>>46780118Yajima directed it though, they worked together.
>>46780050To signify that he'll end up with Misty in the end. It's all in the language: Serena leaving Kalos signified the relationship, much like the XY series it was completely contained in, ending, while the kasumi flowers at Ash's home signified that ultimately Ash will always return to his home (ie Misty) in the end, regardless of where he had been before.Thought it became really obvious after her inexplicable return a few months later and Serena's almost five year absence since leaving. Plus Misty was present to the first two times Ash had been kissed with Melody and Latias, it'd make sense that she'd be present in a manner of speaking in that episode as well.
>>46779666Gou a cute
>2021>/padt/ still can't get over XYWhy is this general so obsessed with XY? You don't see people here circlejerking about any other season, not even DP.
I miss when Ash was a dumb loser.
>>46777395Who the fuck is Scott and why does everyone hate his guts
>>46780249I miss AG. They really did some far out ideas during the Johto-Hoenn era. >>46780296Some guy obsessed with Misty who used to be an annoying user at several pokemon forums back in the early 00's who now post here. Ignore him and don't let him live in your head too much.
>>46780308I see. Thanks for the heads up
>>46780249It's better now, because he filters who's actually watching and who's only here to jack off to images.
>>46780308The franchise wasn't really set in stone at that point so they did all sorts of stuff like Sammy, the whole thing around the Lati@s duo, a monster Groudon and the entirery of the Entei and Lucario movies.
I honestly wonder if a character like Harley would be able to be created today. Back in 2005-2006 gay rights weren't what they are now, I wonder if Harley would be "canceled" by today's social justice warriors if he was introduced now instead of 15+ years ago.A lot of the stuff they got away with Harley especially his dialogue and mannerisms they probably wouldn't be able to do today.
>>46780576Don’t see why he wouldn’t. I don’t think the outrage would be as big as you’d think
>>46780576Dunno, people never attempted to cancel Tokyo Mew Mew despite having its own Harley in the form of Kisshu. And 4Kids never bothered censoring him so...
Iris would have looked better if she had side swept bangs like Gloria.
Guess I gotta save this thread with some daily dose of Ash x Lillie Aurelia.
A question for Misty fan in this thread, does HGSS Misty look like this from front angle? I draw this based on Bianca (Movie 5) and Aldith (Team Plasma Grunt)
>>46780093>What does innocence and purity in the heart have to do with XY?>innocence and purity You do know that this "flower language" came from a director that made two 10 year old children kiss on the lips in the airport on broad daylight! Do you think he cares about innocence & purity? He made the kiss scene for two reason -A) Divert people attention away from Kalos League fiasco B) Make sure Serena never reappear & future director can never improve her character.
>>46780891misty but with the downs
Serenafags and Mistyfags really are retarded. The " baby breath " thing at the end of XY/XYZ had nothing to do with Amour or Misty, it was literally just Yajima expressing his gratitude towards everyone through the whole XY series. Not to mention the same flower thing was at the end of Movie 21 as well which Yajima directed. Not everything is about shipping you autists.
>>46780951>>46780951>Do you think he cares about innocence & purity?wtf. I'm the one asking the reason and saying that it doesn't make a lot of sense.>Divert people attention And also to end Serena's development.And it was good because if that kiss hadn't happened, what would amour be different from all the other shippings? It was a gift from him to the fans.>reappear & future director can never improve her characterShe can totally appear, and it is very likely that it will happen.
We just had a magazine profile that btfo’d any Ash shipping. I don’t how much more clear they can be about this.
>>46781216Don't you know? This place only cares if Yajima is the one saying things, current director? Rica? They don't count according to XYfags logic
>>46781176>And also to end Serena's development.There was no character development in forcing a kiss on protagonist mouth, only neets who are into self inserted power fantasy believes it to be "development" >And it was good because if that kiss hadn't happened, what would amour be different from all the other shippings?Amour is still no different than all other ship, it was one sided ship that remained one sided till the end.>It was a gift from him to the fans.You mean his final trolling! This was he saying " You thought I supported Amour when I actually killed it & made sure Serena could never reappearing while tricking all of you into doing free publicity for me online">She can totally appear, and it is very likely that it will happen.Considering the current lighthearted tone of the series with a more childish Ash, that "kiss" killed Serena chance of reappearing.
>>46781065That does not answer my question
Last thread got derailed because XYfags got mad that the SM cast is uniquely considered a family.This thread has been derailed because XYfags are mad about the flowers Misty is named after appearing.I’m sensing a pattern.
>>46781257I'm the opposite of an amourfag, but you can't ignore things just because you don't like something.>There was no character development in forcing a kiss on protagonist mouthSerena's whole development was based on her liking Ash, man, she just decided she had to have a life goal when she saw people who had one. What I'm saying is that throughout the series there was nothing really relevant, so if the kiss hadn't happened, there would have been nothing.>it was one sided ship that remained one sided till the endI totally agree with that. Ash showed absolutely nothing for her, nothing different than what he would show for any male colleague>final trollingI believe in a trolling theory, but not by yajima, but Tomioka. Basically that flowers thing.>killed it & made sure Serena could never reappearing You have no way of knowing that.She can reappear even as Julie from Ben 10 in the omniverse. With a new "companion".
>>46781237Wasn't all that the magazine had was Ash's potential for romance at zero? It's not like it had the director of PM commenting on the series iirc?>>46781278Last thread got derailed cause SMfags are retarded, this thread is currently in the process of being derailed cause of Mistyfags like you and Serenafags.
Famon is an idiot, but he is right about Serena never showing up again. She is ship bait and that type of character is useless given Ash doesn’t care.
If you guys really want to see conspiracy theories about Serena, check r/Amourshipping on reddit. All the young people there do is come up with conspiracy theories of Serena or Yajima or XY. Some of them even think the anime will get canceled soon if Serena doesn't return.It makes me laugh because it brings back memories of Misty fans doing the same thing in the early 2000's when AG and DP were airing. Saying how Misty "had to come back" or that Misty was "too important to the show or Ash" etc....and in the end Misty stayed gone anyway at the end of Johto for the next 20 years.
>Q: I didn't watch the final episode, so this might be a dumb question, but what happened to Serena's love, did she and Satoshi become a couple in the end?>Yajima(Director): They didn't become a couple in the episode itself, but the way I ended it is meant to make you understand that they're probably going to become one later. Serena tells Satoshi that she's going to improve herself and then come back to him.All Amourfags have to do is hold on to this.
>>46781344Before that, Rica also said way back that Ash knows about romance but doesn't really give a shit about it.
>>46781355Fuck off. You are even more autistic then them with your stalking of random fags on twitter concerning May.
>>46781344>Last thread got derailed cause SMfags are retarded,Still asshurt about people not putting XY in an altar yet again huh? You suck at faking neutrality.
>>46781419Pretty sure Rica's opinion doesn't mean much at all. She isn't the one writing or directing the series.
>>46781442nor yajima anymore
>>46781434ok anonI don't need to fake neutrality to say an objective truth.
>>46781455true, but Yajima is now basically the main movie director btw, does anyone know how well that movie did in Japan? Excited to watch it, the soundtrack is a bop
Movie 23 did poorly. You can blame covid for the most part, but movie 21 also didn’t do as well as movie 20 and 22.
>yfw next movie will feature Goh
>>46781540No idea what's good and what's bad. According to this https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2021-03-08/aria-the-crepuscolo-film-opens-at-no.10/.170401>Pokémon the Movie: Secrets of the Jungle (Gekijōban Pocket Monster Koko), the 23rd anime film in the Pokémon franchise, rose from #9 to #7 in tickets sold in its ninth weekend. The film earned 33,989,600 yen (about US$311,400) from Friday to Sunday. It has earned a cumulative total of 1,738,598,150 yen (about US$15.92 million)>The film ranked at #2 and earned 378,195,750 yen (about US$3.66 million) in its opening weekend. The film opened on December 25 in Japan. TOHO had originally planned to open the film earlier last year on July 10, but the staff delayed the film due to the spread of COVID-19
>>46781461>NOOOOOOO SM didn't talk about family and Alola didn't become a second home for Ash and TRio
>>46781511>movies of a complete different Ashverse
>>46780576Twitter and Tumblr gays love Harley. He's a flaming gay stereotype sure but he has humor charm to mask that for the more sensitive people.It's less about who he is as a character rather than his whole thing isn't really seen as funny/as trendy as it was in mid 00's Japan.
So what will our Darling Ash catch next my friends?
>>46782206I can't bring myself to give a shit at this point.
>>46780549>SammyReminder that 4kids paid OLM to add in more scenes because they thought burger kids were too dumb to make the connection that Sammy = Oak.
>>46781337>Serena's whole development was based on her liking Ash, manWhich made her one of the poorly written anipoke character. Worst part is, her personality before meeting Ash was completely opposite. She was sassy , determinate, confident & aggressive but her personality took 420 degree change upon meeting Ash. Its like Yajima saw Froakie evolution as Greninja & decided to change Serena personality to something similar to Hinata/Sakura. >so if the kiss hadn't happened, there would have been nothing. There is still nothing, the kiss didn't do anything relevant >I believe in a trolling theory, but not by yajima, but Tomioka. Basically that flowers thing.Yajima confirmed the kiss to be his idea, plus the head writer need approval from the director to do anything. If head writer had that much authority then I could have claim Tomioka as the main culprit who wanted an edgelord protagonist so he purposely made Ash's character suck on BW series to make people hate him & root for his edgelord protagonist Alain when he appears on XY series. But his idea backfired with people taking Ash's side and root against his edgelord protagonist leading to social media backlash. Which is why he was removed & replaced with Aya Matsui. But Tomioka hates the lighthearted tone of current series so he took over as the head writer of Digimon Adventure reboot and made it as edgy as possible to show how serious edgy story can work with kids anime. But again it backfired with people complain against Digimon Adventure reboot's edgy story & too much focus on fighting than character development.Even I agree this to be a ridiculous theory. >She can reappear even as Julie from Ben 10 in the omniverse.Ben is over 15 years old unlike Ash who is stuck as an 10 year old. .
>>46782527>poorly written anipoke characterBesides, those trypokalons were a complete bore.What bothers me most in the beginning is that the anime created a hype for the meeting of the two, had announced that they already knew each other, but when they met, nothing happened.>kiss I wasn't talking about that part.And come on, Tomioka is responsible for great moments of the anime.>Ben is over 15 years oldI'm talking about the possibility that she will come back in some episode and that this idea of her liking him is left out.
I want Dawn to grow up into a beautiful girl like Sakura Matou while maintaining her strong, determinate and competent personality as Dawn.That's way the entire anipoke fandom can accept her as the canon love interest for Ash.
Remember that one guy who thought Gou was a crossdresser and hasn’t been seen ever since the beach episode?
Amour wasn't Yajima's idea, one of the original pokemon anime producers came up with it.
If Lana looked anything like this as a grown-up than all of us would have became Blueangelshippier (Ash x Lana) despite her lack of sclera. Unfortunately even her mother doesn't look anything like this in the actual anime.
Please ban Famon.
To be honest I'm surprised nobody acknowledges how significant it was for Iris to be the first dark-skinned female protagonist chosen in the anime way back in 2010, over a decade ago now. Especially for Japan where anime rarely has dark skinned protagonists, it was a huge risk at the time.Like even if the BW anime was really good in terms of writing, I'm surprised the writers went with Iris back then. 10 years ago was different than things are now in 2020+
>>46780135Big XD. Mistyfags should be gassed.
>>46784048Why do Serenafags get so mad about the truth? How long does Serena need to be gone before they start collectively killing themselves?
>>46784068Nah, they will kill themselves if she comes back and her kiss is treated as a nothingburguer by Ash or show that it was on the cheek.
I hope they redesigned the gym's exteriorit looked kinda lame
>>46783545I would say something but given the new wave of black NTR, Iris was way ahead of her time.
>/padt/ already knew that Lana was the best SM girl before SM even started\BASED
In my opinion BW is overall better than SM. Change my mind.
>>46784165The show did almost everything that it could during Chronicles to make sure that the audience knew that Misty and Tracey would never be a thing.
>>46784204Such as giving Misty an Azurill which is a child of Tracey's Marill, right? Or making the pic related?
Shipping was a mistake. Pokeshippers, Amourshippers, anti-shippers, all of you need to go away and fuck off to the Distortion World.
>>46784264Anon they outright denied it like three times with no romantic inclination including after this Daisy daydream, then had pic related happen.Chronicles and Contestshipping were transparent ways the writers protected Pokeshipping while Misty was gone. The lure episode in DP, too.
>>46781583What would it be, 90 minutes of him throwing pokeballs at everything he sees?
>>46784290Well, there is not enough HYPE right now to lessen the impact of shipperposting on /padt/ right now. When there is really nothing relevant to discuss anymore, people go for the old reliables which are shipping and genwars.
>>46782206Given these writers, probably nothing until next series
>>46777395imagine liking SM, SM is worse than Teen Titans Go
>>46784315But when Misty returned in SM, pokeshipping got ZERO hints. If she was the one destined for Ash, shouldn't she get more?
>>46784343>there is not enough HYPE right nowIris and Gary showing up isn't hype enough? I mean we did get some new info on the Iris episode, I would have expected us to focus on that instead.
>>46784393They aren't opening that wound again until they're ready to pull the trigger. Her cameos are about keep her relevant with the younger crowd until then.
>>46784442This is the same shit as saying that Serena has not appeared yet because writers are saving the best for last. You are hopeless.
I actually felt Misty was more flirty in SM than her old AG cameos. During her AG cameos there were no shipping hints and her interactions with Ash were minimal. In SM she was teasing Ash again and blushing grabbing his Z-ring I remember.
>>46783545Ash himself got darker skin as the show went on, though in fairness this didn’t really take effect until after BW.
>>46784434Iris will appear one month from now, we have 0 idea when Gary will. Not to mention so far we have nothing besides few screenshots and a brief description. We need something more, like a trailer for upcoming episodes. Keep also in mind that so far the hype episodes in PM did not exactly deliver most of the time. Battle animation and choreography is still below the XY level, the is literally only one hype track in the new OST and the series itself does not delve deeper into its plots, preferring to just scratch the surface. We need more episodes like Riolu's debut, Visquez, Korrina's return or Bea's debut rather than shit like Galar arc or Ash overcoming his depression by just looking at Go catching a fuckign Flygon line by spamming Ember.
>>46783545Who is Brock?
>>46784434They revealed that too early and it’s more or less settled. There won’t be much more hype untill the episodes themselves drop.
>>46784534You cared about Korrina's return but not the Alola cast's return, or Koharu getting an Eevee?
>>46784545The real question is why the shitposters decided that now was the time to attack
>>46784458Yeah but the difference is they're actually keeping Misty relevant by having her appear and referenced throughout the show. Saving the crush to be addressed at the end is what most shows do, but they don't simultaneously keep one half of the crush off of the show for years and have her fade into irrelevancy like they're doing with Serena.
>>46784534>We need something more, like a trailer for upcoming episodes.We got one at the start of this break and /padt/ didn't care much about it except for asking why Iris wasn't in it and maybe celebrating Dracovish's return.
>>46784568misty and brock appearing in sm is just kanto pandering because we're dealing with tpci here while xy gang has little reason to appear unless they start shilling kalos
>>46784553I am not a fan of SM. Koharu getting an Eevee is a good thing but so far Koharu is the slowest main girl to find a goal on her own, even slower than Serena which is honestly weird. She needs way more focus episodes, at least her struggle is interesting to watch compared to Go just throwing balls left and right and catching random shitmons he will maybe use once in the whole series.
>>46784568Keep believing in your headcannon anon.
>>46784610>I am not a fan of SMEven if you weren't it was still something that a lot of people looked forward to.>>46784589The only reasons Misty and Brock came back in SM were the 20th anniversary and LGPE shilling. Kalos shilling doesn't need to be a reason for the Kalos gang to reappear, because if that were the case then Korrina and Wikstrom would have never showed up.
Wait, what IF the reason anipoke twitter is posting all pokemon endings is the fact that they want to announce that they will finally get rid of Pokemon SHITori in the near future?
>>46784371>all the errors in this logicTell me a single episode in SM that told kids being is smart is for losers. Tell me a single instance where SM directly insulted critics by calling them immature.Tell me a single moment where SM poked fun at serious series people loved.Tell me a single episode where SM was used to save other shitty series that still died anyways because their is fucking retarded.The only similarity between SM and TTG was that they sold merchandise, and that's it.
>>46779896>>46780039Still proving my point. Like clockwork. >>46780050Because that's what the pokeshipping anons here want people to think. >>46780093B) Like I said. Like clockwork. Just say you're mad about this happening and call it a day. What other reason is Misty being brought up other than you guys being mad?
>>46784665I'm so sick and tired of seeing XYfags and SMfags fighting each other, and I say this as someone who liked both XY and SM.
>>46777619It's autism my friend.
>>46783193At this rate, get Famon to post porn. It's the only way he gets banned for good.
>>46778422I can also picture Steven since he's still pretty fresh in the minds of viewers from XY. I'm just hoping they have Paul return either for Ash's qualifying battle for the Top 8 or as one of the Top 8. Tobias would also be nice to see.
>>46784667Anon you are really not helping your cause here.
>>46784655https://twitter.com/anipoke_PRThey posted all ending themes up to SM's Type:Wild remake so far. Only Shitori is left.
>>46784689Then maybe don't post the damn flowers at the end of XY until we can finally learn not to bring up Misty and it just becomes some "Muh Serena "irrelevance" bullshit like always.
>>46784544A Japanese teen? Have you never seen one from outside of your usual weebshit? Plenty of Japanese people with skin as dark as Brock.
>>46784687Diantha appeared in a newspaper during the Magikarp Jump filler. There is a slim chance that she might be in the Masters 8.
>>46784678As retarded as Famon is, he's not anywhere as ill as Stella/Max to post porn.Seriously, that guy had a real problem if he thought posting Delia porn was gonna help him prove any point.
>>46784589One of the writers said that the reason why Misty and Brock appeared in SM and the remake movie is to reintroduce them to a newer audience. He outright said that it was to keep them relevant. May didn't get shilled during XY and I honestly doubt we'll see Dawn during PM.
>>46784739May did not appear mostly because KAORI is sick. Dawn reappearing is a real possibility tho, I see 0 reason for her to not appear considering the amount of returning characters we are getting this series.
Hot take: Serena doesn't need to be sassy , determinate, confident & aggressive. Meeting Ash or not, she always was.
>>46784828Serena in the first episode was just turbo annoyed that her mom was forcing her do do Rhyhorn racing when she cleary hated it.
>>46779631>>46779666Love Cinderace, he just asks like a bigger Pikachu.
Hopefully this will teach the mods and jannies how to properly detect that image, because it's falling on nothing but genwars at this rate. Name one time that image got properly discussed without any of those genwars happening.
>>46784739What's the point of keeping Misty or Brock relevant though? Misty hasn't been a main character for 20 years, Brock for 11 years...it's not like they'll ever be major characters again.
Lastly, people called me out on how they wanted me to say "All series are welcome" for BW, SM and PM. Now I see that they didn't want me to use it with XY, which is the series they hate most. I don't even care if I'm called an "XYfag". They're hypocrites because they think BW, SM and PM previously got hate and I dont personally count those, just recent threads. Well sorry. All series are welcome, so XY is welcome.
I miss Bonnie.
>>46784845Serena got annoyed and was sassy plenty of times in XY.
>>46784887If they really wanted to make Misty and Brock the main characters again, they should write fanfiction based on that. Plus, the whole "relevancy" is bullshit when is characters they like and characters they hate way too much *cough* Serena *cough*. I doubt they even knew what the word "relevancy" meant to begin with and it clearly shows.
>>46782805No, we need Giselle returning, maybe even in the clothes of Leaf or Green.The enitire Pokemon fandom would rejoice of Giselle was the endgame girl.
>>46784966t. Never seen her episode
>>46784765She could always be recast like Steven and Chuck>inb4 muh VAJust get KAORI's blessing and that should help.
>>46784894Fuck off, you have already been exposed as a hypocrite, with double standards on how series can be discussed.
>>46779666I wonder if Drizzile is going to keep the Sayaka Senbongi as it's VA once it evolves?I can't see it having the same high pitched squeaky voice Sobble did
This thread really needs a good nuking, nothing ever good comes out of shipping and genwars.
>>46784995Well apparently so were you. Turns out you're okay with people hating on XY, so don't even talk to me about double standards.
>>46785003But what we really have to discuss now? Iris is too far away and next episode looks like a boring ass filler.
>>46785030That's no excuse to start shipping and genwars
>>46784986Honestly if May were to ever appear again, the 20th anniversary of Hoenn would be the time.It's the main reason May is getting another figure in her classic R/S design, next year is the 20th anniversary of Ruby/Sapphire and AG.
>>46784393SM literally brought back the way they treated each other
>>46785008So you only care about people hating XY but not SM or PM? You didn't even say anything about SM hate until you were called out for it, it was clear you never cared about hate for any other series.And yes, criticising any season should be allowed as long as it's for valid reasons and not to shitpost: this applies to XY, SM, PM, OS, AG, DP and BW. Saying "SM is bad because [insert flaws]" should be allowed, but so should "SM is good because [insert positives]", and that should apply to other seasons too (including XY). Stop pretending that your true intention isn't to make /padt/ an XY safe space free from any criticism.
Amourshippers should fuck off back to Serena Sunday threads>>46784862>>46785049Go the fuck away Pokeshipper, go back to your Misty Monday thread
>>46785050Says the guy who only wants XY to be hated and not SM and PM.
>>46785062I don't like SM or the new cancer but you need to shut the fuck up, no one cares. I'm embarrassed to even be in the same thread as you
What's worse, the standard genwars or completely dead threads?
>>46784702>p-please don't post Kasumi flowers of the last episode of Pokémon XY
>>46784931They obviously care about keeping character that are well liked relevant lmao, some people here just dramatically overestimate how popular Serena is while simultaneously dramatically underestimating how popular Misty is.
>>46785062Did you not read my post saying that SM can also be criticized, and the same for all series? There's this wonderful thing called reading comprehension and you may need more of it.
>>46785079How many times does one have to say this. Don't even know why Serenafags bring up the flowers as something relevant, likewise with the Mistyfags cause it's literally been confirmed that all those flowers meant was Yajima's gratitude for the people who worked on the show and who watched it.
>>46785082>while simultaneously dramatically underestimating how popular Misty is.I'm not a Serena fag, but Misty hasn't been a main character since 2002. More than 80% of the fanbase now grew up watching the anime without her. She's definitely nowhere as popular as she used to be in the early 2000's. Lots of Misty's initial popularity came from all the original fans growing up with her and she was the only girl for 5 years....but now that 20 years and 1,000+ eps passed without her, she no longer has the majority viewership that she used to.Even back when DP was airing, Misty was still in roughly half the eps of Pokemon. Now she's in less than 20% of them.
>>46784862nooooooo mods Please don't allow to post Kasumi Flowers from the last episode of Pokémon XY
Based on his posts I can't tell anymore if ASAWanon is a troll, naive, or both.>>46785076I'd rather have a dead thread than genwarring and shipping fights for the millionth time.
>>46785099Not to mention how the kiss was always intended to be the closure to Serena's crush subplot and nothing else.
>>46785099Gratitude in the form of a name of a well-known old character, but that's okay.
>>46785127There's a thing called coincidences
>>46784581Honestly, I don’t know how they expected that to even keep people’s attention. Most of the clips are from filler episodes and the only relevant one is Go getting handed another evolution for doing all of Jack shit. Meanwhile the return of a companion, something that would offer excitement, is on the other end of that episode batch
>>46785101And you're conveniently ignoring that the show isn't even a fraction of a fraction as watched as it was during the original series. Episode count means nothing, the fact is that far, FAR more people were watching the show when Misty was around than they are now. Which is why Misty and Brock and all the Kanto stuff makes so many appearances in the first place.
>>46785049Holy shit SM Ash so goddamn ugly.
>>46785074Maybe have them not make it so that only XY is hated and not SM and PM and not call me out on not defending SM and PM. >>46785076I think I prefer the dead threads now.>>46785079>>46785105Well have them not fall on genwars. >>46785082Wow, you must be deluded if you think popularity and relevancy matters so much when you don't know what they mean and are only using it because you'd stab someone who'd cosplay Serena in real life. I can totally see you doing that.>>46785107Can't help it if people turned out to be hypocrites ASAW only being posted about SM and PM and not XY. >>46785120So glad I showed the mods that the flower pic causes genwars, and you proved my point yet again. Name one time this pic got properly discussed without all of this happening.>>46785117Exactly. It's just the subplot, not her whole character.
>>46785127Holy fuck anon, I understand cognitive dissonance is a cancer coded into the genes of Mistyfags, but if you could just lower the collective IQ of padt which is already at historic lows for a hot minute, that'd be great.
Misty is overrated.
>>46785099That is actually possible.
I blame PM2019 for being such a shit series for this mess.
Stop with goddammit flowers
>>46784966How come the only people who talk about her haven't seen her episode?
>>46785211I don't even know myself.
>>46785190>Yajima is shown with LanaBased Suiren.
So how exactly is Iris challenging Ash through the PWC? I thought trainers had to be near each other and their signal would pick up that an opposing trainer was near. I guess she specifically looks him up in some directory?
>>46785260The summary says she calls him and asks him to meet her at her Gym in Unova.
>>46785211Most people here are zoomers who haven't seen the OS outside of a few select episodes.
>>46785269I find that hard to believe. The original series is the most iconic one and the first one people jump to when they think of the pokemon anime. Who goes straight to the high hundreds of even past the thousand mark episode when they start something?
>>46785268It'll be interesting to see who wins. Logic states that Iris' Dragonite should win, if they're trying to show Iris' growth as a trainer.
>>46785302unless she becomes a reoccurring character she isn't winning
The summary also says Ash will reach Hyper class if he beats Iris, so if the writers want to progress Ash to stronger trainers he will probably win here.
>>46785302I personally want a round 3 of Barney getting humiliated (after Shadescroc and Charizard beat the shit out of him).
It's weird we don't know if Emolga is being used in battle but the scan purposely showcased it for some reason whereas nothing for Excadrill, Axew or even her Gible...
I would take it Iris is the Opelucid Gym leader like Drayden wanted her to?
I miss him so much.
>>46784966I hope you are not pic related because Leaf fans are mentally ill. Stop forcing your stupid headcanon on people. You will probably end up like PL thinking Leaf is real. Retard.
What could have been...
>>46786187how many times do you have to see the same exact formula before you get tired of it? they're not going back to the pre-SM format, give it a rest.
>>46786203Honestly I remember as far back as DP people complaining about the same formula. Dawn was another coordinator and Brock came back AGAIN. You can look through the archives of forums.
>>46785152Aha! So the Serenafag reveals himself to be the “all seasons and especially XY”fag.This generals gone to shit anyway, so go ahead, continue with this. The worst the mods can do at this point is to create a hypothetical /vpa/ board for you losers.I say all of this and I like the fucking show.
>>46786775ASAWfag has been known to be an Amourshipper for a while now, he even admitted to being one months ago.
>>46786775Just ignore them, bro.
I think I have the whole ASAW thing figured out. Maybe try to have the individual series praises and flaws be equally talked about in balance. More more or less than the other.
>>46786203Too bad, it was comfy and you actually felt the progress they made.
>>46786915Finally. They should've done that if they didn't like me posting that. >>46786876Too bad, so sad. If only I knew about shipping in 1999.
>>46786775I might be actually up for an actual /vpa/ board.
>>46786203>how many times do you have to see the same exact formula before you get tired of it?If it ain't broke, don't fix it. This new formula is boring as hell and just doesn't work. Just because it's different doesn't automatically make it better, lt alone "good".
>>46787243>If it ain't broke, don't fix it.It was broke, kids were tired of seeing it so they switched it up.
Ash & Goh's dynamic is decent but not good enough to carry an entire show like Team Rocket Trio and Original Trio. Anipoke needs a third character with interesting dynamic with both of them to carry the show, ether it be a headstrong boy like Inosuke (Kimetsu No Yaida) or butt of the joke like Steph (No Game No Life)
>>46787315Go away F****
>>46787315I don't agree.
So the Twitter just posted this
>>46787357it's a contest for the plush that you retweet to enter, nothing to do with the anime
>>46787366I just found it interesting that it was the anime Twitter that tweeted it. And why Greninja right now?
I miss Lana
https://twitter.com/DogasusBackpack/status/1379967466101633029I'm pretty sure he's wrong since Alexa appeared in BW and Steven appeared in XY&Z
>>46787417Of course they have.
Where can I watch Sun&Moon? I still haven't finished it.
>>46787440Gogoanime if you want subbed
>>46787440>>46787452S&M was such a good season. Sigh. I never want it to end.
>>46787467What other seasons do you miss?
>>46787491This thread is already peaceful, do you really want stuff to start all over again?
>>46787492your right, sorry was scrolling down the thread and saw some dumb shit
When do we get Marnie
>>46787504I don't care. This thread is about Sun&Moon now.
I want to see Hop in the anime now
couple of episodes into journeyshow come every new 1st season of every gen past sinnoh, the writers throw out all continuity only for them to reestablish them all over again, like ash being a retard.is it new writers that dont give enough shit to do a simple lore read up?
>>46787521They want each series to be standalone since it's always a new set of kids watching the series each saga.
>>46787509Don't announce reports.
What does Koharu's feet smell like?
I want to hug Mew and squeeze him until he faints
I love Eevee
I love Pikachu and I don't love any girl
>>46787538That screenshot is from 2018 I doubt it counts as announcing a report in 2021.
>>46787509>>46787560What's going on here?
>>46787568Well the cabal's long gone so you should be safe now. Funny to think that, as that /qa/ anon proved, you turned out to be right after all (though only when it comes to /padt/, not the whole board).
>>46787504Soon>>46787509What a giant retard, enjoy your ban.
