No more flowers.
What does it take to become the official padt thread starter?
>>46787597Anon, just stop. That era is over, the people who used to gatekeep /padt/ are mostly gone now, exposed for who they truly were. Now anyone is free to make a thread.
>>46787623I'm proud for the fact that I was the first to realize there was an inner ring gatekeeping these threads.
>>46787635Did you read the /qa/ thread yet?
>>46787637No, haven't read it. Summarize it pls.
>>46787651I don't understand any of that. When I claimed in 2019 that there's a conspiracy around padt thread starting, you guys called me a troll and a retard, and then got me banned. I'm _still_ butthurt over that and I'll be posting these screenshots forever as proof that 4chan has shit mods.
lot of psyducks this season
>>46787671Is there a new one?
>>46787669>I don't understand any of thatThe tl;dr is that Adamant was very likely behind the one behind the old pasta, either supported the thread posters or made them himself, and was also behind the Aikatsu and celebrity posting. It was also more-or-less proven that either someone connected to Adamant or Adamant himself was the one who tried to keep any non-[PM] subs off /padt/ and maintained the old pasta.
>>46787728What does the bottom right say? "Iris with Koharu"? But where's Koharu in the scans?
>>46787686Adamant just lost all my respect.
i want to smell koharus feet
>>46787620She is coming
Was money ever shown? I know there was that bill in OS and this in "Mutiny in the Bounty".
Btw anipoke twitter posted this quite recently.https://twitter.com/anipoke_PR/status/1380075441617207296?s=20They did not forget about the frog. He is coming.
>>46788212I thought they was doing this giveaway because they were tweeting old XY endings.
>>46788212It's obvious Greninja will show up eventually. The only people who think otherwise are trolls.
>>46788245I hope Greninja shows up and ninja chops Goh in the dick
>>46787728Still no Axew on any scan. Kinda suspicious. From what I remember they usually promoted Axew alongside Iris in old BW scans.
>>46788252Can't wait for Goh to catch him
>>46788261Ash still has Greninja's pokeball, same goes for Goodra's. Proof: SM001.
Anyone else concerned Iris is going to become more popular than Dawn and Serena after this episode? I see praise for Iris everywhere now. It seems like the tables have turned.
>>46788391Shut up S****
So how did Sobble manage to escape becoming a Marketing Mascot
>>46788417Inteleon is really popular in Japan apparently.
>>46788222It is. Frogfags are reaching once again.
Come to think of it Greninja and Inteleon would make good parallels when/if they meet each other.
>>46788415He is such a gate keeping faggot.
>>46788417Because the writing staff failed to realize that just cuteness alone just wasn't enough to work as a Mascot.The reason Rowlet, Oshawott and Piplup worked so well as a Mascot is because on top of being cute, they were also FUN and had a lot personality where they could bounce off the other Pokemon and provide fun interactionsSobble's problem was that he was just plain boring, was too timid to have fun, had almost next to no interaction with anyone besides Cinderace, and that's why he failed as a Mascot Grookey has been here for only 2% of the time Sobble has and he's already being far FAR more entertaining than Sobble was for 30+ episodes Sobble is undeniably adorable but on his own he can't really entertain the younger kids who are the target audience for this show.
>>46788417I don't know, but as a Sobble it was boring as hell, hopefully it becomes better as a Drizzile at least.
>>46787986Only started 55 episodes ago
>>46788417He got one good look at these guys and Nope'd the fuck out.
>>46788987Piplup and Rowlet were pretty based tho.Chespin was okayOshawott was full blown fucking cringe however. Worst Comedy Relief mon
>>46788987POST COMEDY RELIEF STARTER RANKINGSHere's Mine:Piplup > Rowlet > Oshawott > Chespin
https://www.pocketmonsters.net/episodes/viewep/569/CommentsWhy did people dislike the news of May returning in DP? This is an old thread from 2008 when the ep title was first announced and all the replies are negative.
>>46789046The Chad Piplup >>>> Rowlet >>>> Power Gap>> Chespin >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> A Flaming Pile of Shit >>>>>>>>>>>>> Oshawott
No one fucking cares, Scott. We don’t care about May or shit from 2008. Stop spamming the thread with this crap.
>>46789046Piplup>anything else>the other 2
>>46789090To me, the early 2000's never ended. 2002-2010 feels like just yesterday to me. I feel like I'm permanently stuck in the year 2005 or something.
>>46789103That’s your problem. The rest of us live in the year 2021.
>>46789103>know there's a problem>do nothing to solveThere's your problem. Why not just move on from 2005?>>46789110Except for some posters who are still stuck in 2016.
>>46788987That reminds me Remember the days when people thought Scorbunny was going the Comedy Relief Mon?
>>46788328They’d just have Greninja like Go better, break its ball and let Go catch it to become Go-Greninja since the writers love pushing Go so much
>>46789142>Except for some posters who are still stuck in 2016Fair point.
>>46789146Yeah I remember kek, Scorbunny's whole line has been pretty marketable, can't remember the last time a starters whole line has gotten this much attention in the anime and other stuff.
>>46787728>Ash randomly touching Goh again
>>46789263True even with Greninja, Froakie and Froadiger fall flat in comparison to their Final Stage.The only other Starter I think that might have it's whole Line Marketable is maybe the Treecko Line
Man, they are REALLY fucking shilling that shitty looking Plusle and Minun episode on social media.
>>46789263Honestly I wasn't a fan of raboot before the anime but after it became my favorite.
>>46789263They had to focus all marketing on it since the other two ended up so ugly and unpopular.
>>46789524>wtf?? why are they promoting an episode with two guest celebrities?!
The two Plusle/Minun fillers in Hoenn were pretty boring so I expect this one to be boring too.
>>46789594I will give it this, Sobble's line is pretty damn popular in Japan, but that's it, everywhere else Scorbunny's line seems to blow them out the water.
>>46787597I’m not sure what it takes to be a thread starter in general. Can anyone do it? Or only the jannies?Unrelated but the Plusle and Minun image is cute
>>46789449>The only other Starter I think that might have it's whole Line Marketable is maybe the Treecko LineWhat about the Litten Line?
>>46790016Litten and Torracat were popular.Incineroar is kind of a mixed Bag
>>46790016>>46790025Litten was the only one that was universally well received Torracat was love by Gaijins but Japan didn't give a shit about it Incineroar was hated by Gaijins but adored in Japan
>Goh is so retarded he didn't know Sobble had a Middle Stage despite it literally being SHOWN TO HIM A LARGE PROJECTOR SCREEN
>>46790120Amourfag, why are you purposefully trying to stir up a shit storm?
>Greninjafags still holding out hope for an AG return when there's literally almost no evidence besides expecting that the PWC will actually handle powerscaling correctly
>>46790111Learn to read
>>46790111You mean Sobble didn't know it had a evolution before getting to Inteleon, what does that summary have to do with Goh? Regardless that episode seems kinda eh so far.
One day a letter arrives for Satoshi. It's a battle invitation from iris, the girl who aims to become Dragon Master. He and the others immediately head for Soryu Gum in the Isshu region. Iris can understand how Dragon type Pokémon feel, so she detects Satoshi's Kairyu's feelings. And now a passionate battle between Satoshi and Iris with advancement to the "Pokémon World Championships" Hyper Class on the line begins!Screenplay 冨岡淳広 (Atsuhiro Tomioka)Storyboard 齋藤徳明 (Noriaki Saito)Episode Director 高木啓明 (Hiroaki Takagi)Animation Director 香月麻衣子 (Maiko Katsuki)Animation Director 倉員千晶 (Chiaki Kurakazu)
>>46790163>>46790181If Goh knew about it then he could just easily tell that to Drizzile
>>46790111Well, this confirms Drizzile will evolve into Inteleon.
>>46790186When is Dracovish going to have his time to shine? Mr. Vish deserves some Action too!
>>46790217Dracovish and Gengar barely exist anon. Still don't think I've seen all of Ash's pokemon together in a shot, could be misremembering
>>46790206What the fuck is wrong with you?
>>46790228I like these posters, but most of the time they don't happen in the episodes. Remember the SM posters with Ash/Misty/Brock but none of that happened during the cameos?
>>46790208That was pretty obvious even without this summary.You thought they were just going to leave it at it's Mid-Stage?
>>46790120Go fuck yourself.
>Sobble was too busy creaming itself to Inteleon, it forgot it had a middle stage TOP KEK
I just realized that the archive is broken.
>>46790228>he only showed favoritism towards Serena!I guess this kills those fags and will help them accept the fact that Ash doesn't play favorite with friends, unless you're Kukui, Burnett and Lei since he canonically consider them as family.
>>46790228Still no Axew anywhere on these posters or summary. Why are they keeping it so hidden?
>>46790120Eternal reminder that even if she comes back:>the episode will be about Goh or he will take the most screentime>they won't mention the kiss>Ash won't blush or ask her why she did that like Amourfags here wanted>Ash will interact with her as much as she did with Clemont when Bonnie wasn't involved
>>46790304So uh, anon, you're using a poster as justification?>>46790387Yeah, this is why she probably isn't coming back
>>46790228How much Gayer can Ash and Gou possibly get?
>>46787686You will never be unbanned from Serebii, adamant will never read your posts again.
>>46790120*sigh* Why? why would you do this? Was it just to open Pandora’s box? Was the thread a little to civilized for you after tha adamant schizo’s fucked off? Just wanted to watch the thread burn? Fuck you troll. Fuck the schizophrenic Serenafags you’re baiting, and fuck shipping. You people are the worst.
Amourfags wouldn't be as despised as they are if they weren't so annoying. And I'm an Amourfag
HOJI IS BACK
>>46790425Suck my dick Adamant, and what happened to your boyfriend PRB12? Still crying over the Alola league?
>>46790501You actually thought that was Adamant? lmao
>>46790228Most of these posters are just "featured characters" and Ash and Gou being gay. That's cute.
>>46790554Yeah, I remember when the second SM poster came out with Misty/Brock with the Alola cast (the one Lana's Eevee appeared on the first time prior to haircut), people thought Misty/Brock were staying in Alola and joining the main cast, lol
>>46790576Did people actually think that?
>>46790186>Tomioka writing the episode.Thank God. This will easily be Journey's best episode to date.
>>46790642They definitely did back then since Misty/Brock were included with the SM cast on the group poster. I remember seeing Misty fans saying it on twitter and tumblr at the time. They also saw that Misty/Brock got new clothes in the second cameo and assumed they got new outfits because they were becoming part of the main cast.
>>46790642The anipoke fandom isn't really smart.
>>46790499>Literally a rehash of that Hoenn Absol episodeFor what reason?
>>46790684Misty fans also like to jump to conclusions all the time. Back in BW when Charizard's return ep was announced the summary listed Misty's VA since she said one line in the flashback scene and they all wrongly assumed she was coming to Unova in person. I remember the mods on bulbagarden had to explain to them that Misty/Brock weren't showing up.God there's so many things I remember about Misty fans over the years.
>>46790695The filler about Absol in Hoenn aired in 2005. We're now in 2021, almost 16 years later none of these kids were even born back then. Hell their parents were still kids themselves back then.
So there's 4 new posters of Iris and Axew is not on a single one of them. But the summary only mentions Dragonite vs. Dragonite. I don't know what to think.
>>46790783He got lost again, but never found.
>>46790049>adored in JapanThat's a gigantic overstatement. It wasn't as hated in Japan as it was in the rest of the world, but it wasn't really liked either. People like to point out that it beat Deshitueye in that Nip poll, but it was only by a couple dozen votes and they were BOTH out of the Top 10 of the region. Even 4 years later he doesn't have a big following overseas and the Galar Trio completely blew the Alola Trio out of the water in terms of reception. Litten is the only member of it's line that has remained popular, so i don't think it gets close to being a beloved line. I think the Treecko line is more fitting. Treecko for the Basefags, Grovyle for the PMDFags and Sceptile for the Final Stage fags. Not the most popular line, but all three are held in high regard.
>>46790225Only once but that was before he caught Dracovish
>>46790499Who is Hoji?
>>46790501You will have to project adamant because you will always be banned from Serebii and he will never see your posts again. You’ve probably been banned by the youtuber you stalk too. You will never be acknowledged by them again.
>>46788391And thank goodness for that. Zero concern, only pure facts.
>>46790228These two are so fucking gay I wouldn’t be surprised if they brought Serena back only to have her kneel to Go. Just waiting for the cross dressing episode and the “accidental” kiss.
>>46791307Back when BW was airing I remember all the Misty fans praising Iris because she wasn't "another girly girl coordinator."
>>46788391Nah, it’s a flavor of the month type of deal. Alola pals were in vogue on their comeback and now no one cares. Iris is in vogue for her comeback but unless she’s on some next level shit she’s going to be forgotten when Gary pulls up.
>>46791462Yeah I definitely think so. Whenever an old character comes back people get hyped even if they didn't like the character before, then people move on again.
Satoshi and Go are watching the "Pokémon Water Obstacle Course", an obstacle course race for Pokémon that takes place in the sea, live on TV. It turns out that Kairi, the partner of the Showers that ended up winning the race, is a friend of Sakuragi Laboratorie aide Kikuna. Koharu saw how fascinated Eievui was with Showers, so she decides to visit Kairi together with Satoshi and Go so it can meet this Showers it admires so much.Screenplay 松井亜弥 (Aya Matsui) Storyboard 浅田裕二 (Yūji Asada) Episode Director 浅田裕二 (Yūji Asada) Animation Director 岩根雅明 (Masaaki Iwane) Animation Director 志村泉 (Izumi Shimura)
>>46791493Kek, remember when some guy in the last few threads kept saying there would be a Piplup egg as a prize? lol
>Screenplay 松井亜弥 (Aya Matsui) Why is Matsui writing an ep like this instead of the Lillie/Mohn ep we're waiting for? Matsui?
I really wanted Iwane in the Iris episode, I remember him posting a drawing of her and saying something like "I'm losing hope of seeing Iris again"
>>46791542They should have him on all old character returns again. And yeah Iwane also retweeted all the info of Iris returning from the anipoke twitter.
>JN012: Lances gyarados evolved from a gold magikarp>Johto: Lances gyarados got its red shine from forced evolution by team rocket
>>46791866Oh boy, can't wait for another episode where Goh steals the spotlight...
>>46791129you're fucking joking right? The reception to the Galar starters has ben almost unanimously less positive than the reception to the Alola starters. This isn't to say that any of them are unpopular, far from it, but Alola has by far the most balanced trio in terms of being generally popular since fucking Hoenn. This is pretty much solidifed by the POTY poll, with Alola being the only region other than Hoenn to have all three of its final stage starters in the Top 15.
>>46791129>>46791934>>46791928also forgot to add-it's the ONLY region to have all three in the top 10 as well, which can't be chalked up to poor overall vote numbers because it beats out Galar and Unova, and Kalos in terms of voting numbers (Kalos was hard carried by Greninja and Sylveon btw, the numbers drop off pretty hard after Top 10 and then it fluctuates like other regions, but it goes between being on par with or even losing to other regions in terms of pure votes for lower rankings pretty often)
>>46790186So, is Ash going to win or lose here bros?
>>46791537Because there is no Lillie/Mohn episode and SMfags need to move on.
>>46790228>Koharu doesn’t meet the previous female companionsKoharu bros...they’re mocking us
>>46792056Good. Staff telling degenerate waifufags to get the fuck out.
>>46790409Just imagine all the promotional material coming up with Ash, Gary, and Goh.
>>46792157Gary has such a great design. Gary, Paul, and Alain just had fantastic designs that really perfectly conveyed the kind of characters they were.
>>46792211I agree with Gary and Alain. But I always thought Paul's design was quite bland.
>>46792048Ironic coming from you, how is the world six years ago?
>>46792264I think how they designed Paul's face really conveys that kind of intelligent "lawful evil" that defined his character. But yeah, his design is not as good as Alain or Gary, but still great imo.
>>46792268Not an XYfag, so I don't see your point.
>>46790499So Tokio and that bug girl Koromi still have a chance?
>>46792316I would be surprised if they don't.
>>46790228Iris's VA must love this serieshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eL0Tim6ZRTI
Wow Iris in PM style is really goodNow bring back Misty to give her justice after SM
>>46790783Maybe he evolved and they're keeping it a surprise?
Can anyone check if Plusle/Minun girl is in the characters montage in the OP? >>46792316I'd say Tokio coming back is a 50-50. He seems to be popular for a COTD and he does have a link for Goh, plus the way his episode ended suggested that they could battle in the future, but then again he's a COTD. I don't think Koromi's coming back though.
>>46792428Oh yeah she's a pretty big well known fujo in general, a lot of Japanese voice actresses are.
>>46792658Can Ash beat a Haxorus and Dragonite with his current team?
You know for Iris only getting 1 episode, they really are dedicating a lot of posters and magazine summaries detailing her character. Kind of extensive if she's only going to be in this one episode?
>>46792900Stop being autistic. They've done promo-art for shit that was only in one episode multiple times.
>>46790244>>46792056There is no such thing as a Koharufag, only desperate coomers who will latch onto the empty shell of any minor female character. These are simply fans of pussy, the character its attached to is mostly irrelevant
>>46792861Everything is possible with offsceen training
>Now bring back Misty to give her justice after SMOh boy here we go.
And I guess that means that people are still complaining about SM's artstyle, but it's Misty instead. When will they learn?
>>46793187>>46793205What the hell are you two talking about?
>>46793228He's trying to be the anti-S****
If Misty/Brock appear in Journies at some point their designs will obviously look like they did in SM.
>>46793240Exactly. >>46793232>Anti-Sc****You unironically lost me
>>46792157Man, I hope the don't just revert Gary to being a complete jerk.
>>46790249>You thought they were just going to leave it at it's Mid-Stage?
How long until PM ends?
>>46793542Never. This series isn't attached to a generations and Goh can't catch all Pokémon in 145 episodes
>>46793600>2 yearsYou wish >>46793561
>>46787552this is the most autistic thread everreminder that SM is worse than Teen Titans Go and Powerpuff Girls 2016
>>46788245>It's obvious Greninja will show up eventually. The only people who think otherwise are trolls.
>>46793523I don't see any point in them doing that unless they want to commit into making him Ash's main rival again.
>>46793668>stil mad about the family thing
>>46793523>>46793686I can see him maybe being both cool and a little snarky, but not over the top a jerk.
>>46790228FUJOSHITS RISE UP
bros, all these characters coming back makes me wish the writers actually executed what was honestly a great concept with the PWC and Ash traveling around regions facing old rivals that become recurring charactersWhat could have been ;-;Instead, we get mostly filler episodes where nothing fun happens that Gohfags will defend because fujoshi bait. Truly a sad state of affairs. Still holding out hope that with Iris and Gary, PM19 reinvents itself, but I'm not holding my breath
>>46793747>case in point
>>46790208All of his starters will reach their final stages. Inteleon at the end of this year, Rillaboom just in time for gen 9.
>>46793528There's a bit of a difference there tho. Drizzile the least popular member of it's Family Line. If the writers weren't planning to take it all the way to Inteleon then they wouldn't have even bothered to evolve it at all. Nobody in the Tepig Family seems that popular from what I can tell (Not a Single Member made it in the Top 30 on this Poll >>46791934)It didn't really matter what stage it stayed at since no one really cared enough. (And it's pretty obvious the only reason Pignite evolved at all was because Snivy and Oshawott got too marketable and at least ONE of the Unova Starters had to Evolve. Also "Muh Kanto Parallels" ) >>46793668>Worse than Powerpuff Girls 2016Hey now! Let's not get too hasty here Say what you will about SM but at least it didn't completely ass rape everything the OG show stood for (And Of course the Live Action Show is going to make the 2016 reboot look like a complete goldmine by comparison)
>It's obvious Greninja will show up eventually. The only people who think otherwise are trolls.You guys do know they are baiting, right?
>>46792900Unless she beats him.
>>46793779It's gonna be so weird with tall ass Inteloen and Cinderace, I really liked the whole older brother/ younger brother thing they had going with the starters this gen, but we'll see how it turns out.
>starting forms infinitely more beautiful than the final ones>they decide that all three will evolve quicklyWho makes these shitty decisions in this anime?
>>46791871Technically both are right
Redpill me on the Pokemon anime. Outside of The Origin specials I've only seen pieces of the original and Advanced Generation when I was a child. Is this a rabbit hole worth going down? Should I just read the manga instead?
Ash will lose
>>46794587I hope so
Is PM ever going to sub again?
>>46794587The Hyper Class advancement is on the line, of course he’s not losing
>>46794993Yeah it seems like Ash will win to make it to Hyper Class. I think Ash's next loss is going to come from Gary again.Imagine Gary beating Ash after Ash had so many achievements under his belt...but it's probably going to happen.
>>46795008Last time they battled Ash had just beaten the Battle Frontier and he still lost. Pikachu has lost every battle against Gary.https://youtu.be/lwgWw6P591o
>>46795008If Gary beats Ash in their match he'll make it to the final eight. No way Ash will get his win back in another hyper battle.
just started watching journeys after not watching since XY. do they ever say who the monarch was before leon beat lance? was it leon? because they didn't say he was the reigning monarch when he was introduced.
>>46795679>not watching since XYWhy?
Is it me or do we almost only ever get "haven't watched since XY" posts? I've never seen a single "I dropped the show after SM", "I stopped after BW", or "Haven't watched since DP" post in this general, and only rarely have I seen anyone say "I haven't watched since OS". It's always XY that people seem to be these droppers' last season. Why?
>>46795832just didn't feel like watching. i started watching XY during the league buildup when everybody was saying that he had a chance to win, watched about half the episodes (skipped a ton of the fillers), then dropped it after he lost to the guy with the charizard in the finals.
>>46795856You didn't even give SM or PM a chance? Before XY, when was the last time you watched the show?
>>46795883not since i was a kid when misty brock and gary were on the show. i saw the first few episodes of ruby and sapphire when it aired but checked out pretty quickly after that. the reason i'm watching now is because the concept of a world tournament sounds interesting.
>>46795902It does seem that "I dropped the anime ages ago and only came back for XY, then dropped it again" afterwards is rather common. I haven't seen something similar for other seasons.
>>46795980It is what it is.
>>46796020It's really only XY where you hear people saying they dropped the anime as soon as it ended. You never saw the same for SM or even BW. Even the people who didn't like BW or PM seemed to mostly be ones who gave it a chance and people didn't start hating them until after they started, but that never happened with SM. Even the SMfags who don't like PM (who are as far as I can tell are still a minority) didn't really start hating it until about a year into the series.
>>46790228>Just ignoring the female and feeding each other food under the blossom treeHeterobros...we are losing
>>46795980because people were hyping it up as ash's final season and that he was finally gonna become a champion. that's why i started watching during that time, i saw a few people on /v/ saying he'd finally win it all.
>>46796038And you didn't watch the SM League, where he did become champion?
>>46796042nope, i didn't see anybody mention it where i usually go until it had already happened. i've seen clips of the ones brock and misty are in but i never bothered to look up the episodes and watch them in full because i've never really cared about the side characters.
>>46795557The first time ever when the new artstyle makes a character look better than the old one. I'm impressed.
>>46793528Pignite was such a bro, especially when Charizard became his senpai. That was so cute.
>>46787728Goddamn, she looks so much better in the new artsryle. It's unreal.
Is it me or did the Korrinafags who returned when she came back drop the series again? Are any of them even still watching?
Keita is back?
>>46787728From ugliest pokegirl to prettiest lmaoSo who's the ugliest now? Gotta be SM Misty right? Fuck now I hope every pokegirl gets an appearance in PM now because their character designers are great.
>>46795565>>46795557>>46794254>>46791866>>46790228>>46787728And they say that SM/PM's artstyle would "ruin" the other characters. It didn't.
>>46796110It made all of them better.
On a different note, the nyafuu /vp/ archive is still broken and it has been for over 24 hours. It's still stuck on this thread. https://archive.nyafuu.org/vp/thread/46775903/
>>46796110>>46796115The main Alola cast looks fine in the new style but Team Rocket and Ash did look off. Honestly, ther than TR/Ash/Brock I don't mind the SM/PM style at all.
>>46791934>Charizard in 4th place overallI'm surprized they didn't find a bunch of mail-in ballots.
>>46796115>>46796130Based. The only thing I don't get is why some people think hat SM/PM's artstyle would ruin Serena. Even Clemont and Bonnie would look great. Hopefully someone remembers Diantha's cameo from last year. Honestly, even though it was a cameo, Diantha actually looked great.
>>46792048I wouldn't be surprised at all if they just decided to do a GS ball with Mohn.
>>46787728>random touching>>46790228>feeding each other
>>46796130I just can't believe somebody looked at these character designs and thought they were acceptable. It's insane how badly they botched the designs of the older characters, almost like they were done by completely different people.
>>46796136I didn't even notice any difference with Diantha. Plus Korrina and Wikstrom looked almost exactly like their XY appearances anyway.
>>46796146You do make a point. The XY traveling companions would look the same.
>>46796144Misty looks okay, Brock is the one that got the ugly stick.
>>46795856Did you at least watch the entirety of XY or did you just watch the league?
>>46796144This was the first and so far only time Misty looked good.
>>46796130Agreed. Ash’s design was just shit in SM, but PM’s is pretty good. Brock’s was off as well and I hope they fix that when he eventually shows up. SM Misty’s was cute, I just hope they opt for the LGPE outfit in PM.
>>46796158 Misty is CUTE anon
>>46795843Tone shift and different artstyle. It's the same with Yugioh now that they switched studios.
AlrightIt's Pokemon nightI've had no sleepGot a big bowl of baked chicken to eatAnd an all new episode to rateLet's rock
Damn, that girl's hips tho
Welp, I know what lewds are gonna be drawn for this episode.
>>46796154nope, watched the ash-centric stuff like the gym battles and captures (skipped all the serena/clemont focused episodes) and then watched the league. "skipped half" might be generous, i probably skipped more than that.
>Ash caring for TaurosAlways nice to see
Why do Ash and Goh never get shirtless?If this was BW or SM Ash would have stripped the second a sleeve got wet, here they’re completed soaked yet nothing
>>46796130Ash looks better now at least
Stupid grass monkey
Anyone else watching the stream? I missed the start.
JN015>Dragonite can fly faster than soundSo why the fuck does ash need to take the train from vermillion to pallet
>>46796191>not his own
Reminder that the girl has the same voice actress as Mikasa
Is the anon who updates https://pastebin.com/CGSd907r here? It still doesn't have https://nyaa.si/view/1163818.
>>46796202Repair bro and sis duo came by to fix water faucets. Sis stumbled and pushd the bro down some stairs til they ended up with her mounted on top of him. He's now in a full body cast and Ash is helping her out with the rest of her work cause he's got nothing else to do, I guess.
Who was the one who said "Pocket Monsters" in the eyecatch? Was it Marina again? I usually mute that part because I hate her voice.
>>46790186>TomiokaB A S E DASED
Why is TR helping them?
What is this abyss?
As expected, that guy claiming Goh was getting Plusle was lying.
>>46796226Meowth was also trapped down there. Also, they're not monsters. TR does good when it really counts.
Thoughts on the episode?>>46796235Lol when they thought they were going to avoid getting yana kanji'd.
>>46796239It was alright. Girl was cute, too.
https://www.tv-tokyo.co.jp/broad_tvtokyo/program/detail/202104/25680_202104161855.htmlNext week's episode summary is out.Cast:サトシ:松本梨香ゴウ:山下大輝ピカチュウ:大谷育江エースバーン:林原めぐみコハル:花澤香菜サクラギ博士:中村悠一
Sobble is still cute even as emo teenager.
So it expected to turn into Intelleon immediately and is disappointed in how ugly it is instead, so ti runs away. That's meta as fuck.
>moments before reality strikes
>>46796110SM Ash/Brock were terrible...
>>46787552>PM2019 063 - Pokémon Marine Challenge (April 23rd)>PM2019 064 - Detested Absol!! (April 30th)Did we get updated titles for these yet?
NOOOOOOOO WHAT DID THEY DO TO MY CUTE SOBBLEFUCK YOUFIRST SHITDERACE AND NOW THIS
>>46790186>>46791493did OLM just waste Iwane on the most forgettable filler and give the Iris battle episode, the episode that would actually benefit the most from good animation, to some crappy noname budget animators? WTF
>>46796278It's like we're really back in the Advanced Generation days
>>46796278But Tomioka is doing the Iris episode
>Axew has yet to be shown in any material whatsoeverHaxorus? Is there really a chance Iris will actually have made some progress on being a ‘dragon master’ beyond catching a single Dragon pokemon?
>>46796286>back in the Advanced Generation daysIs that you S****?
>>46796253Hopefully it does more now, because it was boring as hell as a Sobble
Leave me alone Anikiiii
>>46796291I wouldn't be surprised if the lack of Axew is meant to prevent spoiling that it evolved. Why not spoil Axew evolving but spoil Drizzile is beyond me, however.
>>46796304They should do more interaction episodes.
>>46796290Yeah Tomioka is best-case scenario as writer but for a battle episode animation is more important than writing and those animators are simply atrocious so there goes that ep...
>>46796323Just wondering: are any of the 3D camera animators still on the show or did they all leave now?
Hopefully next week will be fun
>>46796304>I used to be like you some time ago...
>>46796358Did he take an arrow in the knee
>>46796130This. Gurrkin is a downgrade but he looks more or less the same. Korrina looks nearly the same as she did in XY. Just Ash's SM redesign is terrible and his PM one is still not ideal despite being improved tenfold compared to SM.
>>46796368How different does Gurrkin even look?
>>46796264He looks so happy. I feel sad now :(
>>46796370There is a slight difference.
>>46796457Just the eyes it seems?
>>46796476Face and neck have no shadows in PM despite both being in nearly the same light conditions. Also for come reason his collar is different now.
>>46796484Just the same except the collar is standing now
I miss Georgia
Cannot wait to see Round 3 of angry barney the dragon getting pummeled.
I also miss Burgundy
>>46796505Why do people call him Barney? He's a dragon not a dinosaur.
>>46796515They were wasted characters
Marnie when, I'm getting impatient
>>46796514He looks like barney. Really, it’s that simple.
>>46796534So does Ash's Dragonite but no one calls him that
I'll miss the cry baby
I love Marnie!
Bye Bye Sobble
