I hope team galactic is not "killed off" after the special I hope they come back in a future arc that would be cool. they (pokemon) have defiantly done so much more the DP than other gens hope there is much more of it to come
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ce5mRvkAePU This playing in the anime again when?
There's some weird narrative going on at twitter that all the old character cameos are now "pandering" or "shallow" as they feel Journies has to rely on past nostalgia to keep it going. But in other words this is what this series should have been doing from the start, as the first year barely had any returning characters when we should have seen Morty at Ecurteak, etc.Now that we're finally getting old characters return, even those in minor roles like Erika, the show is delivering on its premise. I also like that not every return has to be this huge event, low-key returns like Drake, Chuck, and Erika are perfectly fine if they're not going to be in the PWC.
Imagine caring about what random Twitter users thinks
>>49269233I have no choice, the majority of the anime fandom is there now.
There's some weird narrative going on about how a waifufag obsessed with a ten-year-old's breasts won't stop talking about the fans of a girl who left a show more than 19 years ago.
>>49269100Looking forward to the Legends Arceus special
>>49269235>I have no choiceYou do. >the majority of the anime fandom is there now.Go talk about it there then
So since Brock is appearing now, do people really think he'll appear again with Misty in April? I can see Misty getting a solo cameo, but I don't really see the point of another original trio reunion. It'd also be way too similar to the SM cameos that they'd be re-treading old ground from not too long ago.
Seriously this Tyrone guy on twitter is fueling this narrative and all the twitter people follow it and believe it: https://twitter.com/TyroneTG3/status/1482005408361365504It's like a hive mind over there.
>>49269284Misty will appear in the same episode as Serena so the true dream match can take place.
>>49269100Fuck fujosFuck faggotsFuck Go tranniesAndFuck Yajima
Scott ruins every thread
>>49269100Goh looks kinda cute & suave in the Researcher outfit
>>49269475We know, Koharu.
Based KaitoSource: https://twitter.com/KizzityKaito/status/1482123711935172609/photo/1
>>49269219>>49269329They're right. Scott's just depressed that now even Twitter which is usually the place that is most positive on the show has been criticizing it more
I'm gonna kill someone if Quilava doesn't evolve
>>49269475He looks boyish and a bit messy with that hair. It's very cute.
Is it true that Ash is catching a Lugia?
This dude is still in denial and is literally stuck in the past lmao. He still hasn't realized they aren't going back to the old format anymore at this point, and also hasn't realized the name of the Series itself has pointed out that Gen 9 and subsequent new Gens are treated as "components" in PC analogy.
>>49269550The last pokemon I remember him catching was Dracovish, did he catch anything after that? Is there a chance he might get some legendaries?
>>49269567>Is there a chance he might get some legendaries?Entei?
Is this thread just going to be a cope thread for PMfags? Brock announced to return and the hype already dies down after a day lmao. This is what happens when your entire series is built on bait and trying to chase the next high.
>>49269583No one cares about Brock on /padt/. Modern /padt/ is just a circlejerk for waifufags and Gohfags. I can assure you that the only return that this place would care about this point is Serena. Anyone else they won't even bother, even if it's someone like Lillie. Heck, Butch/Cassidy/Erika/Sophocles are all coming back soon and /padt/ doesn't care at all.
>>49269558Stop pretending to be the Ashnime staff.
>>49269600No one cares about Brock or any of those other companions on any other platform either lol. I'm following a bunch of anipoke accounts and the Brock hype was like maybe one or two days and it's just back to being dead. Scott was crying and Bulbagarden and Serebii shitting on the series last thread so I'd imagine it's even worse over there. I remember reading here that the reddit was also critical of PM, but idk atm.
>A***fag & S**** are hereOh boy
>>49269583This general is at its worst during weekend nights, you should be used to by now
>>49269624I hope you get an incurable condition. Then you'll see how Sc*tt feels. Unironic, btw.
>>49269600>Modern /padt/ That's my line.
>>49269621NTA but what about those who say Gen 9 is going back to the old format, & Gen 9 only, isn't that pot calling the kettle back?
>>49269688You're basically having trouble ignoring them. Idk how many times I'm gonna say this, but I'll still say it. They're baiting. And I still stand by this, even if some people are unironic.
Speaking of bait, look at how many people feel for this. https://archive.nyafuu.org/vp/thread/49245725/#49258887 https://archive.nyafuu.org/vp/thread/49245725/#49259084I thought you were the bait masters. No one can be this serious or unironic. Ever.
Only morons think Gen 9 is going to be a new anime in one region again. The writers have so much more freedom now that "locking" themselves into one gen of characters, region and pokemon again is obviously not going to happen. Granted I don't think they have to keep Go around (he could go either way to be honest), but I think they'll keep the world format as a whole.
>>49269877Says the anons pretending to be the Ashnime staff.
Let's face it. There's no official word that PM is staying or leaving in gen 9. People that outright pretend to be the Ashnime staff to say that the PM format is "staying" should be hanged.
Erika a cute.
>>49270062Not an official statement. Just some broken record image. >https://archive.nyafuu.org/vp/search/image/Xo4EtOGPZ92cDccfhw5pLw/>24 timesYikes
>>49270073At this point, the anon spamming the image is the one who is coping/
>>49270036Guy has a point. I'm the guy who's very very skeptical about Goh staying and even I think even if he does leave the anime isn't going back to the going-through-the-forest format of previous seasons. Most likely the anime will remain something more similar to the current one in that it's doing its own thing while making references to the games.
Hoping for some magazine art with Ash Goh and Brock
>>49270165Gonna have to teach you what a samefag is.
Kino Filler Episode
Here's what a samefag is.
People before PM:>I WANT CONTINUITY!!!People after PM>I DON'T WANT CONTINUITY!!!
>>49270140Man these flowers in the pot are realistic as fuck
>>49270151>very very skeptical about Goh stayingEven if you said it should be a Kanto starter that Goh should've catch 1st, it doesn't really matter at this point as Goh is loosely based on PoGo in terms of catching, and catching is a big main aspect of the franchise.
>>49270247Doesn't mean Goh himself is staying. Another character could be introduced who's also into catching. They don't need Goh to promote Pokemon Go.
>>49270308Will they keep her old VA?
>>49270289NTA. Goh and Ash have been supporting each other "goals" since ep 4 of PM, sort of like they have a brotherly camaraderie or some sort. I just don't think any new character that wants to be in the catching can be as enthusiastic as Goh is, especially when OLM & TPC has thrown in so much "investment" into Goh
>>49269100Man, wouldn't goh look so good with a pair of huge tits?
>>49270318Maybe, they were able to get some of the old returning characters va's, but yeah OS is pushing it
>>49270404She came back for that brief appearance in I Choose You so there's a good chance, but who knows.
>>49270464No, I want him still a boy, I just think he'd make an amazing Oppai Shota. Big fat tits the size of his head but with his small little boy cock still.
>>49270465Oh yeah forgot about that, it might not be too hard then
>Erika's only appearance was in episode 26>reappearing in episode 1,179>1,150 episode between appearances, over 24 years between appearancesIs this a record?
>>49270538She appeared in a couple flashbacks after that, but even including flashbacks, yes, it's a record.
>>49270573Shut up Yamper & Eevee
>>49270505Ummm.... yeah I'm thinkin BASED
>>49270421jesus christ how horrifying
>>49270421I don't ship GohxKoharu, but that's honestly cute
>>49269100Goh a cute
I wonder if they'll bring up Ashley.
The Eng Dub for JN079 named Chloe's doppleganger as Soleil. Fun fact: Soleil means Sun in French.Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bd0u83QclXU
>>49269517>Gou does not get everything handed to himThe only catches he failed at were Zapdos and a bunch of other legendaries. And he barely struggles with catching at all.>that's not poor writing, that's just fast pacingDoes this fucker even understand that pacing plays a mayor role in writing? If you can't keep a decent pace, you'll either rush or delay events that will with the audience's patience.>Gou is relatable and sweetHe's a neet with no understanding of how relationships work at all. An idiot who jumps into conclusions and acts overtly dramatical (the Celebi episode pretty much proved that).>well written character arc"Well written" doesn't mean "let's make an episode about how Goh is a poor victim every 20 episodes or so".
>>49270818>FrenchSo the dub indirectly is still infatuated towards Serena eh?
>>49270818>Another fun fact: In the Japanese version, when Soleil mentions how her and Chloe's names sound similar, as both of them have "haru" in their names. This line is kept in the English dub, possibly referring to how both Chloe and Soleil begin with a long o-sound, followed by another long vowel sound (o and a, respectively).Glad the dub didn't butcher the episode.
>>49270828>This line is kept in the English dub, possibly referring to how both Chloe and Soleil begin with a long o-sound, followed by another long vowel sound (o and a, respectively).What does this mean, fellow Anons?
>>49270550Imagine if Giselle or AJ came back, that would be really cool. Both of their VAs did Pokemon stuff long after those characters (AJ's VA even voiced Hala in Sun) so it's not like they couldn't come back to the series.
>>49270828Get outta here, dubfag.This thread is not for you.Loser.
>>49271183This thread is for discussion over the Pokémon anime, not for some obscure Japan-only series.Bitch.
>>49270828>This line is kept in the English dub, possibly referring to how both Chloe and Soleil begin with a long o-sound, followed by another long vowel sound (o and a, respectively).Good to know to brush up my English.
corocorosatoking episode confirmed for pm97
>>49271287>Slowpoke IslandSo they're going back to that island from the Magikarp/Slowpoke episode, or is that a different place altogether?
>>49271291uh i think so yeah
So no Marnie until February 18th at the earliest?
When's the Magikarp Salesman coming back?
>>49269329He's absolutely right, though.
>>49271370Wasn't he voiced by Ishizuka? Doubt he's coming back unless Horiuchi is willing to voice him.
>>49269329These guys are so short sighted. The show has been running for over 2 years now, they've had more than enough time to very, very easily pay tribute to stuff from older series AND bring in new shit for the show to have it's own identity despite that, but they never chose to do it. This shit could have been legitimately amazing with the cards they had to play with, but they were more concerned with just making standalone junk episodes featuring kantoooooo shit we've seen a billion times before instead of actually developing any of the main cast or their pokemon properly or bringing back old chracters in meaningful ways. This series is the ultimate fucking monkey's paw and it sucks watching the fingers curl.
>>49271463>These guys are so short sighted. The show has been running for over 2 years now, they've had more than enough time to very, very easily pay tribute to stuff from older series AND bring in new shit for the show to have it's own identity despite that, but they never chose to do it.That is literally what they have been doing. The old stuff has been reworked to impact the new cast and narratives of PM.
The Kanto meme isn't even accurate. The base is Vermillion, but the focus on many episodes aren't on Kanto Pokemon or characters.
>>49271463>featuring kantoooooo shitKanto is easier to shill for marketing in general. And most people usually associate Pokemon with Pikachu, which just so happens to be from the Kanto Region, so no surprises here.
>>49270833Chloe is pronounced as "KLO-ee". Soleil is pronounced as "so-lay".
>>49270797Would be Based
Watching this week's episode. Magnemite not liking Pikachu's electricity is nice inverse of what happened in the first series.
>>49270818Soleil's dub voice sounds kinda "too mature" for a 10 year old girl. Kana Hanazawa voicing as Haruhi speaking in Kansai dialect nailed it better.
>>49270839Oldest CotD would be Samurai but I don’t see any of them coming back. If they actually follow through with Surge wanting to battle Ash again, he’ll break Erika’s record
>>49272030It's ok. Ash will fuck him after that.
>>49270792Erika ep is the primest material for the Once A Gen Crossdressing EpisodeThe plot of the ep should directly involve Erika having to teach Ash and Gou how to be proper ladies, make it a significant portion of the screentime, it's commemorating the ep that started the trend after all
ACTION KOHARU when?
>>49271829>Tears of happinessSo what that little cunt needed was a good dicking
>>49271829Why do they always cry here?
>>49272325Of course. All cheeky brats fall to the cock evenually. She stood no chance against Masala's Stallion.>>49272347Intense pleasure make girls tear up, anon. It's natural.
>>49271829I still dont get this AshxChloe ship.
>>49272368The lack of a constant appearing waifu in this Series caused these self-inserters to ship Ash with Chloe whenever she appears in an episode, be it focusing on her or just a filler.
>>49272368Eh, Amourfags scared me of shipping so I just don't give a shit anymore.
>>49272386So its just self inserters finding her cute and wanting to fuck her even if theres no anime interaction between the two?>>49272398Shipping is cancer but even that aside I can understand some of the ships due to the way the Anime has gone. Ash and Chloe though? You might as well ship Misty and Kiawe because they appeared together in an episode.
>>49272493>So its just self inserters finding her cute and wanting to fuck her even if theres no anime interaction between the two?Yes, pretty much, albeit there were interactions but it was more of a polite tone.
>>49272368>>49272540Koharu clearly treats Ash as Goh's slightly retarded friend as to not trigger his tard rage.
>>49272368There isn't any, it's all shit posting they have zero interactions/chemistry
>>49272368Don't take it so seriously, just one more crackship of this anime.Now if you want to see it from a realistic side, the childhood friend is an unrealistic cliche, growing up with someone produces an imprint effect similar to the one we have with our family, unconsciously repelling them as a future partner (It also happens with animals) , so as soon as new people are known they are more interesting.There are exceptions as in everything, but the media likes to romanticize this concept in an exaggerated way, when the reality is the opposite, these relationships are rare and hardly last.
>>49272627This is rarely portrayed because breaking viewers' fantasies doesn't pay off well.
>>49272627That scientific theory has been long debunked, and many long term marriages result from people who knew each other as kids. The most common reason those relationships don't work is usually the maturity level of the kids involved and that most get in relationships early and fuck it up because they're still kids.AshxChloe is an interesting thought experiment ship to see how you could fit them together, plus it's cute but the only fics and art that I see of it basically have to pretend that Serena doesn't exist and Goh is gay or just not interested in order to give the ship space to grow because otherwise it just can't get off the ground.Pic related is easier to conceptualize because even if the series isn't pushing it like they did Amour or Contest, it's got Poké or Pearl level hints you can build up on.
>>49272325Why is Ash giving a smug face to Koharu?
>>49272696No, it doesn’t lol. Amourfags always expose themselves.
Kek, they all look like they have down syndrome in that doujin, into the trash
>>49272729>Contest was basically a teacher-mentor relationship between Ash and May. That ship sailed long ago when Drew came along.Contest is DrewxMay, retard. You're thinking of Advance
>>49272749Ok my bad.
>>49272736There's scenes where she's blushing at Goh and he seems very thoughtful of her. It's basically nothing compared to Contest/Armour but this fanbase has done more with less.
>>49272760>There's scenes where she's blushing at Goh and he seems very thoughtful of her.I wish I was Goh.
Why does Pikachu want to be streaked by Magnemite so badly
>>49272368>>49272386I have never ship Ash with Chloe, specially when Galar had a girl way better than her.
>>49272760One scene. It is no where near the level of Poke or Pearl, especially Poke.
>>49271708>Soleil is pronounced as "so-lay"So she doesn't mind being laid lmao
>>49272784>Don't taze me, bro!
Whoever ends up fucking with Goh is lucky, no matter if it's Koharu, Ash, Sonia, Asahi, Gary, Cinderace, Inteleon, Tsurugi or any other that wants to tap his ass.
>>49272741No, the cutesy faces fit the animes style. You look at other doujins and the faces are drawn either too realistic (think of similar to Terufuu's art where the characters look more "real" but not like the animes art style), or completely different.Anyway PM Gals has now exhausted the main girls again. He skipped over Bonnie but he could always do Cynthia.
>>49272627>the childhood friend is an unrealistic cliche>he didnt date his childhood friendI legitimately feel sorry for you Ma
>>49272741More like fetal alcohol syndrome faces kek.
>>49272805>>49272805Two scenes and there's only 90 or so episodes so far, so there's still time, especially if Goh stays past Gen 8. It's still not nothing.My comparison was more "they're not interested in making this a main character trait or arc" like they did with Amour or especially Contest. It's currently in the "something they can tease if they feel like it without committing to anything" tier, like Poke and Pearl.
>>49272747Ah so just like almost every AshxKoharu pic, thanks for pointing it out
>>49272627>Now if you want to see it from a realistic side, the childhood friend is an unrealistic clicheYou what? Those tend to be the most successful marriages you moron.
>>49272747Not really, watch the episode again
>>49272869You upset that Kenny didn't end up with Dawn?
>>49272865It's not actually edited, its just a very specific frame in the middle of Ash's side if the screen getting squashed. He's not smug for very long
>>49272879I dont ship shit with any Pokemon character you schizo but i didnt think /padt/ was retarded enough to say that nonsense.
>>49272860It is nothing. Koharu has been in several episodes with Go and they have never pushed any hints. Even in marketing, they don't even push it which is the opposite of what happened with Poke and Pearl back in the day. Go/Koharu ship has never been thing. It has always been some weird keep away ship pushed by deranged Amourfags, who don't like the idea of Ash having a more meaningful relationship with Go.
>>49272627The childhood friends romance happens all the damn time in anime, not saying it's going to happen in this, but the shit is not unrealistic in anime.
shipperfags are mentally ill
>>49272911>Even in marketing, they don't even push it which is the opposite of what happened with Poke and Pearl back in the day.>deranged Amourfags, who don't like the idea of Ash having a more meaningful relationship with Go.Holy schizo Batman. Shippers need to be killed on sight
>>49272911Logically Go/Koharu makes more sense even if itll never happen.>pushing another ship>boogeymaning another shipIts funny how you think anyone disagreeing with you or even pointing in flows in your cancerous shipping culture has to be another shipper.
>>49272831Goh looks kinda hot & sweaty. I want to lick his sweat drops.
>>49272911>PearlProve it. Where's the explicit romantic push Pearl got outside the series, because it didn't get anything that couldn't be disproven/explained away in series and Lyra's prodding could be seen as ship sinking if anything. >Go/Koharu ship has never been thing. It has always been some weird keep away ship pushed by deranged Amourfags, who don't like the idea of Ash having a more meaningful relationship with Go.And who the hell brought up Ash/Goh? His relationship with Ash is meaningful to him, but that doesn't mean they're going to fuck, Anon. If you think that they're actually building up to Ash/Go being a thing, you're more deranged than the worst Amourshipper. There's no way they would make their main character a faggot and if they did they'd still probably fuck it up.
>>49272952No, shit they aren't going to end up together. But they push the fujibait all the time in marketing.
>>49272971Well yeah but that's why it's bait and it can be discarded and ignored
>>49272627>realisticYou really wanna go there? The abyss is way too deep, bud.
>>49272736You know its them when they start with the childhood friend bullshit, in fact it wouldn't surprise me if they were the ones behind GoxKoharu shipping just to have something to grab and think that would make Amour canon since they're all "childhood friends"
>>49272952>If you think that they're actually building up to Ash/Go being a thing, you're more deranged than the worst Amourshipper. There's no way they would make their main character a faggot and if they did they'd still probably fuck it up.This, that's like saying they would make shit like Gon and Killua a thing, who are damn near exactly like Ash and Goh with two male protagonists a thing, in fact Killua acts a lot like Goh in certain situations blushing and shit around Gon like Goh does around Ash, it's all just fujo bait and wont lead to anything more.https://youtu.be/fkEn94J199A
>>49273038I don't support either of that shit, but at least they have something unlike crack ships like AshxKoharu
>>49273038>its themStop schizoing out. I just made an honest question about the weird situation with Ash and Chloe. Chloe and Go will never happen because its a fucking children's show but even in your weird shipping culture you have to acknowledge you retards have some retarded logic. Now stop schizoing out and thinking everyone is a cancerous shipper like you.
>>49272983That's exactly the thing though: fujobait they can do and market without ever going anywhere. It results in fujos buying the magazines (you know, the ones where Koharu almost never appears) and other merchandise, even stuff just related to the Pokémon Ash and Goh have a stronger relationship with. Because fujos are more likely to buy plushies and keychains, as well as any outside media giving supposed shipping hints. They draw their doujins and call it a day, so you have the boys hug or whatever every few episodes and they're satisfied. It's the easiest way to get the most buyers out of any shipper without having to push it further and further. And all you gotta do is not push any other ship with them to burst the fujo bubble.At least judging by the Japanese fujos, they don't expect the ship to ever become canon, much unlike straight shippers. Which you see in Goh x Koharu shippers believing it's more "realistic" just because they're a boy and a girl and they have to end up with someone, right? Without realising the anime never went anywhere with any main character ship and never will.
>>49273249>And all you gotta do is not push any other ship with them to burst the fujo bubble.I guess this is why Leon/Raihan fujos shit themselves at Leon/Sonia popping up in the anime and PokeSpe.>Which you see in Goh x Koharu shippers believing it's more "realistic" just because they're a boy and a girl and they have to end up with someone, right? Without realising the anime never went anywhere with any main character ship and never will.No one seriously believes they're going to end up together on screen and if they do, they're delusional and can be ignored.
All shipping in this anime is deranged and none of the characters will end up together
>>49273249>Which you see in Goh x Koharu shippers believing it's more "realistic" just because they're a boy and a girl and they have to end up with someone, right?No one is saying this you tard. Are you that blind because of people hating your ships?
>>49273294>more realistic Yes, childhood friendships betweeen a boy and girl are likely to lead to healthy and stable marriages.>Goh x Koharu shippersI believe you're being a schizo and miscontruing the conversation of the retarded Ash x Koharu ship and how Shippers seem to ignore something that is more logically sound by anime logic. That doesn't mean the ship is being pushed. It's just an idea used to break apart retarded Shipper logic when you consider the variables. It's a children's show, none of them will date.
>>49273379Okay you have to be retarded. You're not even replying to me, faggot, that's me quoting them.
>>49273403Sorry >>49273379 was meant for >>49273249. I didnt mean to bully you anon
>>49273084Glad I'm not the only one, Ash and Goh's friendship reminds me a lot of Gon and Killua's
>>49273249Exactly. Look at all the Naruto x Sasuke content that fujos made over the years while series was running, and it still gets a shitton of art even with canon het pairings.
>>49273466Should I watch Hunter X Hunter, anon? What's the best way to experience it?
we need a shippers genocide
>>49273513>it still gets a shitton of art even with canon het pairings.Can't blame them, NaruHina was handled like shit
>>49273560>GohxKoharu shipper resorting to scorched earth cause no one wants his retarded shipCope
>>49273334Of course nobody explicitly points out their retarded logic behind it. But the fact that people in this general, be it one anon or more, keep seeing the ship as "end game" and push their obsession with "Goh's autistic wife Koharu", and that across all media I ever see the show discussed in, these few anons on /padt/ are the only ones that invested in this ship in the first place, makes it pretty clear there is more behind it than the supposed logic. Because if you wanna go off about your supposedly logical childhood friend trope, please explain to me why the two characters rarely interact and why it's made abundantly clear that Goh never saw Koharu as a close friend. Because that's not how you play the childhood friend trope, that's just using one character as a reason why the relationship with another one is more meaningful. It's even why Koharu observes and comments on their relationship in the same show.At the end of the day, of course not a single ship will ever be canon and you're not doing yourself a favour by deluding yourself into believing yours is more grounded in reality than another one. Your ship is as irrelevant as the Ash x Koharu one, but that guy has the benefit of being well aware it's nothing more than a crackship fantasy. And as I said, so do the fujos (for the most part).
Only CinderacexGoh will happen.You don't say no to these legs.
>>49273550I recommend it, watch the latest version Hunter x Hunter 2011 and not the 90's version.
Why are people on twitter constantly complaining the returns have been shallow? WTF do people want? We're literally getting characters return for specific roles (either PWC roles or lower-key returns like Erika, Drake, etc) and they've been perfectly fine.
>>49273645>He's triggered by shitpostersHere's an autistic couple, anon. Maybe observing them will cure your own autism.
>>492735502011 but if you liked it you can watch 99, it’s also very good.
>>49273726>shitpostersYeah, at some point you should consider doing something else with your life than spamming the same general with the same three pictures and sentences over and over again. Maybe at that point you'll recognize your own autism.
All I've learned from this is that AshxKoharu is shitposting
>>49273645>that Goh never saw Koharu as a close friendBro the Ponyta episode? Are you retarded? Is this what being obsessed with Shipping does to your brain?
>>49273645>grow up together>gone camping together as told by Go where Koharu was the bravest out of the 2 by his account>Go constantly at her dad's work after school with her>Koharu showing worry for Go and his school work >Koharu being happy Go found a goal and a new friendMate you have to be oblivious to the fact that theyre close friends. The autists pretty much grew up together.
>>49273838I should have said prior to meeting Ash and Scorbunny and opening up to the idea of friends, my bad. Because before that the show made it very clear he did not want to make friends, frequently ditched class, felt like he couldn't talk and relate to to anybody and thus avoided opening up to others. Which he even explicitly spells out in the Drizzile episode. The fact he had found an actual close friend in Ash who encouraged him to be more open towards others, including Koharu, is exactly what Koharu comments on and is proud of in the Regina episode as well. If you stopped projecting your obsession with a ship onto other people, you'd maybe understand what the show even explicitly spells out for you.
>>49272493I will never get why people asking these questions even so much as humor those who give them strawman answers as if there aren’t a plethora of ships in this show that could be considered crack ships. Like, why is Ash/Koharu taken so seriously by people?
>>49273977No one is saying Ash and Goh aren't close friends, and Chloe is happy that Goh had a friend precisely because he used to say he didn't need them, despite clearly being friends with her. Also all of this >>49273876 I'm sorry that Goh has two friends and this triggers you, seeing someone with more friends than you've ever had. You know it's possible to have different friendships right?
Reminder that all the "Goh's autistic wife Koharu" are Amourfags.
>>49274122>gets BTFO>resorts to a boogeyman Shippers deserve the rope
>>49274129Keep pretending Amourfag, your kind is the only one obssessed with muh childhood friend.
>>49274157>muh <ship name here>fagKill yourself shipper, no amount of projection will save you from your retarded ways.
>>49269100This episode was really good.
>>49274017I'm not saying they're not friends. I'm saying their relationship isn't as close as you want it to be and that storytelling wise, Goh and Koharu clearly haven't been close before. In the Regina episode I mentioned, Koharu isn't happy Goh made another friend, she's happy he opened up to someone to the point where he values the idea of having friends. Ash and the journeys they went on are the reason Goh made all those friends and why he lets people get close to him in the first place, which is something he hadn't done before. And that is exactly what Koharu comments on and is proud of. It also makes a lot more sense from a narrative standpoint, because why else would they make such a big deal about all the new connections he made if he supposedly had a close friend he got along well with the whole time? That would erase his entire character arc of learning how to go out into the world and let people in. "To come out of his den", like the Drizzile episode nicely puts it.
>>49274122>>49274157Is bringing up Amourfaga the last tactic people use here when they have nothing else to argue?
I just want more episodes when Goh and Koharu when they were little, that Goh and Tokio episode was good.
Whhhhy do you care about the relationship status of a 10 year old?
Goh if he real
Burentt and Serena are the horniest pokegirls.
>>49271203Anime is japanese. Tranny.
>>49274322Ash-Greninja got into the game at some point. I imagine it’s easier to justify an anime-only character with the whole Hoopa thing that MasterSex has going on and Goh is one of the most likely ones besides Ash.
>>49274322He looks extra mexican there
>>49273876Since you refer to these points, let me elaborate on them as well:>grow up togetherThey first met in first grade seemingly, hinted at by the fact Koharu looks back at him in the background when the teacher talks to Goh in the Drizzile flashback and says he's always standing alone.>gone camping together as told by Go where Koharu was the bravest out of the 2 by his accountMind reminding me when that got stated? I think it was the Ponyta episode, but I'm pretty sure he was talking about the Pokémon Camp in the first episode?>Go constantly at her dad's work after school with herYeah, he's at his lab. He's got a special interest in Pokémon, but it never stated he hung out with her specifically. Might have a different view on this when the inevitable episode about their past together happens, but as of now, that doesn't say much about the depth of their relationship prior to the show's events compared to anything else that got stated. Especially since we know Koharu initially is bothered about his Pokémon obsession and doesn't quite get it, while Goh seems offended by her not getting why it's so important to him.>Koharu showing worry for Go and his school workYeah exactly, she reaches out to him, but he clearly doesn't want to do school work and ditched class frequently, which Koharu is bothered by. It shows interest on her part, which I never denied, but none on his. >Koharu being happy Go found a goal and a new friendRead here >>49274259
>>49274259You clearly have it wrong. Were we to place the Drizzile flashbacks on a timeline they could work pre-Koharu or post-Koharu but the episode with Tokio clearly makes it clear it's post. Go didnt develop most of his isolated personality traits till Tokio failed to appear on their arranged meeting on their hunt for Celebi and Mew. Go's obsession with Mew can be placed on his time at Oak's camp which established early on that Koharu was his only friend at the time. She understood his personality well and he was more of a show off at that point. With that being set we know that at very least the timeline goes as such:>Koharu and Go meet at unspecified point of time and become friends >Koharu and Go go to Oak's Pokemon Camp where they split off from the group which led to Go's meeting and obsession with Mew>Go and his family go camping where he meets Tokio and develops his distrust of potential friends and social bonds>Go's distrust culminates in not interacting with school mates and Koharu's worry is shown as he cries when questioned by the teachersKoharu has always been his only friend and his closest friend until Ash came along. Most of his blushing and awkward demeanor clearly comes from the fact that beyond his one associated friend he does not know how to bond well which is why they make a big deal. Koharu being his first and longest friend would obviously be proud of him for getting that far. Hell i casually watch the anime and generally only come here to grab the few episodes ive missed in a month or two. How did you not get that at all?
>>49274287I wonder if we'll get another solo Goh episode, it seems to have done good in Japan judging from all the fan art of Tokio that spawned from it.
>>49274408The brave thing was the Ponyta episode. He clearly refers how Koharu was the only one brave enough to head into darker areas at night.
all of you are overanalyzing something that the writers never give a thought about>inb4 i get called [boogeyman]
>>49274447>o-overanalyzingShut up Amourfag
>>49274525>gohfagWho mentioned Goh amourfag? You fags boogeyman any character that isnt Serena.
>>49274473>>49274525>Muh Gohfag>Muh AmourfagHoly Fucking Autism
>>49274512>>49274579Whats a tiktoker doing on 4chan?
>>49274290Autism and self-inserting
Hey kid wanna /ss/
>>49274672Is she going to change his diapers when shes done?
>>49274677Oh great the diaperfag is here too
We just had an episode and character returning announced and the threads are still as bad as the hiatus if not worse
>>49274707Does Brock even count? The only reason he is there most likely is due to the Lake Trio connection. Probably will have no development.
>>49274684>diaperfagIm not Goh
>>49274707Some people were actually talking about the episode until the down syndrome doujin and shipping shit started, it was all downhill from there
>>49274677His friend Ash should also get his diaper changed with him
>>49272952pearl has a lot of evidence for pushing look some up
>>49274757>the ash diaperfag appearsKek
>>49274757Goh i get but Ash? Why?
>>49274663Anon, anon, explain self-inserting to me.
>>49274787I don't get Goh or Ash, what the fuck is this autism
>>49274757Goh wears diapers, Ash is supportive and wears pull ups sometimes.
>doorknob coverWhat the fuck?
>>49274424>Hell i casually watch the anime and generally only come here to grab the few episodes ive missed in a month or two.I suppose that explains quite a bit. Because the timeline you gave doesn't really add up. When meeting Tokio, Goh already seems reluctant to take his hand and accepting him as his friend. We also know he was 7 at the time and frustrated about his parents rarely being there for him, which is something that runs through all the episodes referring to his past. In the camp episode, he already has a negative view on friends and doesn't want to connect with others. Note how Koharu chimes into his sentence to point out he's her friend. So with all that in mind, a timeline like this makes more sense:>Goh grows up with parents that frequently miss out on spending time with him, be it holidays, vacations or anything else. This sets up one of his biggest issues: the lack of emotional support by his parents>As a result, he grows up with little human interactions, leading to the Drizzile flashbacks where the teacher notices he avoids others and Koharu sees it from afar and feels bad for the lonely kid. Compare to how she approached Regina>Koharu keeps trying to approach him, invites him over to her professor dad's lab, he hangs out with her family over his own probably, but this portion will probably get a focus episode at some point anyway>They go to the camp, probably sent over by Sakuragi, where Goh still acts fairly distant towards her, but that aside his obsession with Mew starts>Goh spends more and more time on Mew research over doing anything else, see episode 15>The vacation where he meets Tokio happens, further strengthening his distrust for others upon perceived betrayal and which eventually leads to him isolating more>By the time of the first two episodes, when he's 10, he supposedly barely visits school and Koharu annoyedly notes how he seems to only ever think about Pokémon and nothing else
>>49275018Overall, the thing is that Koharu did want to be friends with him and actively approached him, but Goh kept a sort of safety distance. If they had been such close friends, he wouldn't explicitly point out how he never had anyone to turn to and thus spent his time looking at the stars instead.In short, yes they are friends now. But Goh specifically didn't view or treat her as a close friend before, even though Koharu did. She was frustrated with his attitude of pushing away in the beginning of the series, but ever since Goh learned to let people in thanks to Ash and Scorbunny, he also began considering her as a friend like she had done all along.
>>49275018Your whole thing falls apart due to one simple fact. His obsession with finding and catching Mew, a prominent aspect which was mirrored in Tokio, was acquired at Oak's camp which already had Koharu as his friend.
>>49275018Thats a whole lot of conjecture for a nothingburger.>Koharu isn't a close friendGood joke retard
>>49275028>they had been such close friends, he wouldn't explicitly point out how he never had anyone to turn to and thus spent his time looking at the stars instead.>In short, yes they are friends now. But Goh specifically didn't view or treat her as a close friend before, even though Koharu did.Their interactions and mannerisms with each other at the Oak Retreat contradicts this its not even funny. You really are desperate to push something that makes no sense arent you?
>>49274261It’s pretty much become the Godwin’s Law around here
>>49274322Cute, god I'd love if him and Ash got into Masters somehow
>>49274821>GohAutist who spends most of his time prior to ash just staring at 6 monitors, 1 tablet and his phone nonstop in hopes of finding Mew. Easier to imagine if you consider piss bottles.
>>49272656This is a rather cynical way of portraying how reality works. Whomever wrote that is conflating "what happens in a good chunk of cases" (not even the majority in some countries) with "reality". This kind of writers are the worst because of their "enlightened" attitude, it actually makes them look childish rather than mature.A lot of people have the chance to have sex during high school but simply choose not to do so. It could be due to a wide variety of reason: moral-religious, choosing to keep their focus on their future (studies and career) rather than fleeting and meaningless romances, etc. A lot of high school couples don't even get to talk about sex simply because doing so feels way to awkward. These people tend to be labeled as nerds or losers by their peers who indulge in those behaviours, but that's a different topic. The point is that such people exists and they are as real as those who had sex during those years.
>>49275424Would be Based, so Ash would get Ash-Greninja, a special Pikachu or Lucario and Goh with Cinderace?
>>49275607This is just some coom-brained hentai manga. It can be ignored.
>>49275623>hentaiIsn't that the manga where some fat guy is married to some used goods that does really love him but his inferiority complex about not being the first man made him go back in time after an accident to take her virginity? Just to discover that she was actually raped, multiple times, and that every change affects her life for the worse since she's a pushover?
>>49274322Come to think of it, isn't that version of Serena a bit older than the anime version?
>>49275068Yeah, his obsession with Mew started at the camp, like I said. How does that contradict anything I said?>>49275090Not an argument.>>49275170Not an argument either, unless you can explain to me how exactly Goh saying he doesn't need any friends and Koharu not understanding his main interest, Pokémon, is something that yells close friends. Because it really doesn't. I'm sorry if that's the closest frienship you ever had, with someone you cannot talk to about your problems, interests or anything.Judging by the timestamps of these posts, I can't even tell if you're one autist massively sperging out at the fact that Koharu isn't "Goh's autistic future wife" or three autists with the same brain damage and lack of ability to bring actual counter-arguments.
>>49275424this image makes me wonder what PM wouldve been like if it had the XY artstyle and slightly older tone, with Ash and Goh acting more like teenagers than 10 year old kidsI like what we have but that certainly would’ve been interesting
>>49273661>>49273721>>49273752as it should be
>Erika is coming back next week>Brock is returning soon>/padt/ still wants to talk about shippingNever change /padt/. Never change.
>>49276146>shipfag still trying his damndest to kill the Koharu x Goh ship that no one is pushingDid all the shipping talk get to this anon?
>>49276263And people on twitter are calling the returns, "cheap fanservice" or "shallow."Meanwhile these same idiots were complaining about the lack of returning characters in the first year.
>>49276300Guess you really got no counter argument then and instead resort to acting like you totally don't care about your shit ship. Got it, that concludes the conversation.
>shows up>uses 2 legendaries>refuses to elaborate>leaves
Anyone else sad Go's Scizor isn't used anymore? We still see Flygon often and that Dewgong, but Scizor hasn't shown up in a long time. I thought it was going to be one of those pokemon Go used from time to time.
>>49276554inb4 he shows up in the PWC with a Mega Latios
Anyone got a translated version of the Slowpoke episode title?
>>49276554>we did it reddit we made the post
>>49276608Couldn’t care less. Go has so many Pokémon that even the semi-regulars have little to nothing going for them. They’re spread too thin
>>49276608Scizor will probably show up again later, it still gets merch and the like.
>>49276400I wasnt them you retarded nigger. You have no argument as it stands as you seem obsessed with a ship.
>>49276400I, too, carry around a handkerchief given to me by someone I am not particularly close to.
>>49276400Your whole premise is faulty from the start retard. Even Go speaks fondly of Koharu. He admires and trusts her more than most people. She's not just a person who happens to be friendly for him. Once again Ponyta episode shows how much he treasures her when he's talking to Ash in the forest.
So since elements of the latest game always make it into the anime, how are they going to incorporate Legends Arceus into the show? Will Ash and co. time travel for a while? Or will they just lazily throw in some characters and Hisuian forms with no explanation?
>>49277540There's an upcoming Amazon-only special that includes some parts of PLA as well as some DP-related stuff.
>>49277392Wait does he?
Rirrie-chan getto daze
>>49277335Apparently invested enough in the conversation to read all my posts and give no argument besides muh obsessed shipper though. >>49277467Once again, I am talking about before the events of the show started, not more than fifty episodes in. You still haven't said anything that counters that. Also wow, it sure is a coincidence that all "three" of you always reply to me at almost the same time, even when it's almost two hours later lol.
>>49273088I want to feed Koharu
>>49277697Watch the Suicune episode.
>>49276370>Meanwhile these same idiots were complaining about the lack of returning characters in the first year.Lmao, what is this? Are you talking about Twitter or padt? I don't remember padt ever begging for returns in the first year of Journeys. I've only recently followed anipoke twitter so I don't know about that side of the fandom. I don't remember the forums wanting more returns either
>PM2019 100What will it be about?
>>49278137The Battle for Go's Bussy
>>49277775I think I need to show this for comparison. Pic related was drawn and posted first. I have a mild hunch 4chan doesn't care about the concept of art theft.
What in the fuck, some guy blocked me on twitter just for saying Ambipom probably isn't in Vermilion City anymore and that's why neither Ash nor Dawn reunited with it. How on earth does saying that get you blocked? Twitter zoomers are sensitive as fuck
ash x dawn
>>49278055>I don't remember padt ever begging for returns in the first year of JourneysWere you not here in late 2019/early 2020 when people were complaining that Brock and Misty weren't in that Piplup/Croagunk episode, or how Surge wasn't in the Vermilion Gym episode? Sure there were people back then who told people to wait and be patient and that it was unfeasible for characters to return so early into the series, but the fact is complainers existed back then.
>>49278369I don't recall the former happening, but I do remember some rumblings of the latter, but you're making it out to be a systemic complaint when I don't ever recall that being the case. I remember reading some Serebii posts and I don't recall people complaining much about the latter at all, a lot of people seemed to really like that episode(I agree, was one of the few good PWC episodes in pretty much every standpoint). There's been constant critiques of JN from the beginning to its point now and I don't ever recall more and more returns ever being something a major hang-up
>>49278439Made a mistype, I meant to say "Brock and Dawn" instead of "Brock and Misty". And I remember S**** claiming that most of the complaints were in his favorite forums, but there were also some people complaining about that here too.
There was definitely concern in the first year we weren't going to see any older characters, especially when Lt. Surge was absent in the Gym ep, and they made that weird Piplup/Croagunk filler as a nod to Dawn/Brock.That's why people were surprised when Korrina or that Alola episode happened, but even then there were still barely any old characters showing up back then
>>49278529>>49278523I think its misremembering the real critique. The problem people had back then with some of the returns like the Alola ep and it's the same problem rn is that the returns are often shallow, lacked build-up, and simply aren't fun. People wanted better returns, not more for the sake of more
>>49278324Stop going to Twitter, S****
>>49278564Yeah, but it was also that back then it felt like a semi-reboot similar to early BW, where it felt like the writers were actually going out of their way to avoid mentioning old characters. Obviously those fears were relieved over time.
>>49278564The first Alola ep was pretty good, it should have just been a 2-parter. Although now that Sophocles has returned, I do think Mallow, Lana and eventually Lillie will all get individual return eps too so I guess it doesn't matter anymore. In retrospect the first Alola ep was basically foreshadowing and a set-up episode if all the SM companions get an ep later on,
>>49273466Killua and Goh act so similar around their friends that are boys.
>>49278598>the first Alola ep was basically foreshadowing and a set-up episode if all the SM companions get an ep later onAt least in Lillie's case it was pretty obvious that they were setting up for a solo episode about her later on.
So what's the English translation of PM097?
>>49278598The first Alola ep was plain and boring as fuck. The only interesting thing about it was the Kukui and Burnet kid. If that Alola ep was intended to be foreshadowing, it was pretty ass at it. Proceeding potential Alola eps don't really vindicate the episode
>>49278646Why? The scenes with Ash letting all his pokemon out to meet his SM team, the Kukui/baby scene, and the Alola companions catching up to him was great. Then the Kiawe vs. Go battle was actually well done because Kiawe was testing him and Go was insecure around Ash's old friends. That episode had a lot of great scenes and moments.
>>49278624"Yadoking! A Curry-zy Beautiful Encounter!!"
>>49278660Is that how Dephender translated it?>>49278659It would have worked better as a two-partner. They tried to cram a lot of things into 24 minutes and it showed.
>>49278659I already mentioned the Kukui/Baby scene. Are you now just talking about the episode itself or its proposed foreshadowing abilities? Two critiques here based on that, the first being is that is that it wasn't good foreshadowing for potential Alola episodes with the rest of the cast and second that the episode itself was too rushed and again, came across as kind of weightless because of its rushed pacing
>>49278674We're probably going to see the Alola gang again anyways.
I think with SM being the most recent series, the Alola gang is easier to bring back because their voice actors were just on the show. As opposed to others who haven't done it for a while.
>>49278721Well, Mayuki still does VA stuff but it's one-shot characters
>>49275753This sounds like a plausible plot for a serious story, but considering it comes from a hentai artist, one can't expect much.
I love Brock
I love Felina
>>49276013It's a difference of 6-7 years
