A reminder to XYfags that in their series:
>Ash lost with his Pikachu to a Surskit on an icy terrain
>Clemont's arc was over by episode 9 when he showed that he can stand up for himself and used a style of battling that he learned from Ash, and only continued traveling so that he could get stronger from being with Ash, which he later realized was retarded when he ditched the gang so that he could actually get stronger by training himself at his gym
>Korrina's base Lucario beat Ash's Pikachu, who then beat the same Lucario that mastered Mega Evolution, even though Ash started the gym battle by trying to win with dancing and nearly got his ass beat
>Ash's entire arc with Sawyer was him overcoming pissing his pants at the thought of someone that was looking up to him surpassing him
>Ash couldn't master the A-G form because, for some reason, he forgot how to "love" his pokemon as friends and his final battle with Alain, which Alain won because of his love showed that didn't learn the lesson of love and had to go to Alola to fully understand it, making his entire stay in Kalos an exercise in failure only matched by BW
>Serena lost the Master class to a performance that wasn't even shown on screen and the stated reason given as for why she lost was her not making a performance that gave strength to the audience, even though the Anistar showcase was literally the only time this was shown to be done when she did her performance using her Eevee's moves to show it in the audience that it had nothing to fear
>And that having a heart attack was Ash's greatest achievement in Kalos

Fuck Yajima.
Fuck the frog.
Fuck Serena.
Fuck XY.
But especially, fuck its fags.

>>50790460
Game was kino from World building, but would suck in the execution format like the evolution episodes.
>>
Reminder that since Paul's Metagross only lost to Gengar (and possibly Lucario) because they just learned a new move, the implication is that Paul > Raihan, since the exact same team was used against both. It's possible gimmickless Paul is weaker than Raihan, but I see no reason he would be unable to Dynamax, or find a Mega Stone.
>>
>>50790646
Ash only lost 1 pokemon against Paul tho, and he didnt even use his Spirit bomb Aura sphere.
>>
>>50790614
Dawnfags are retarded.
>>
>>50790661
Paul didn't use any gimmicks either.
>>
>>50790661
If Gengar hadn't just learned Will o' Wisp, which he didn't have for Raihan, chances are high it would have lost to Metagross, so it would have been 2-1 in Paul's favor. Of course the lack of gimmick from either side could be meaningful, but it's ambiguous how much so.

If you're counting that as a gimmick, then Ash used 2 gimmicks against Raihan.

>Ash uses Fishious Rend for the first time in the Iris fight. Ash literally says era ga mi (Gill Bite, translated as Jaw Bite by Some Stuffs), then commands him to combo it with Ice Fang.
>In the Drasna Fight, he does have Vish use Ice Fang first. But a little later vs Mega Altaria, he tells vish to use era ga mi but vish misses.
>Ice Fang animation is a white glow with icey snowflakes around the mouth. Fishious Rend is usually animated as a light blue glow and it's a very simple animation.

Because Alain is the underdog. It is as you say, it's doubtful he's near champion level but his victory over Ash made him unpredictable. Plus he's the most interesting of the M8 because they're all goodies while he used to be a flare grunt.

We want to see the underdog win. Plus Alain takes battling way more serious than Ash, so it should be expected he makes progress faster than Ash.

Theres a difference between what you want and what you think/expect. I'm not talking about people wanting Alain to win, im talking about the people who say stuff along the lines "its bs that Leon won and Alain only lost because he got nerfed". Like some of the takes you see are baffling.

Nobody thinks that. You made it up. XYfags just wanted Alain to do well

Alain was never the underdog, he was the chunni's self insert and he even dresses like one.He also embody every wrong aspect of cnuuni neet such as their self center self absorb narcissistic personality with victim complex. Ash was the true underdog who went though struggles to reach the position he is right now unlike Alain who got everything handed to him.

XY fans want Alain to win because they are chunni who sees themselves on Alain while Ash is social guy they are jealous off in real world. .

Leon doesn't need to struggle, he just needs to have a good fight. One shotting Alain's Mega Charizard, who's known for his bulk is just pathetic, without even using Dynamax is just embarrassing

Alain's swift defeat in the charizard mirror match wasn't to take away from how good he is. It was to hype up leon since hes the main boss fight for the series.

>instantly gmax's rillaboom to show off and get the crowd hyped (characters state this)

the best person to show how strong leon is had to be the other charizard trainer
>>
>>50790957
>One shotting Alain's Mega Charizard, who's known for his bulk is just pathetic
What would be pathetic is Leon not one shotting it.
The only reason people think Diantha is le weak is because XY offended her status as a champion by making her struggle against Greninja, which was bad writing.
>>
>>50790970
>Greninja, which was bad writing
Couldn't agree more, anon.

Alainzard was only shown as a Physical tank. It has shit Special Def.
>>
>>50790970
>Diantha is le weak is because XY offended her status as a champion by making her struggle against Greninja
and people think powerscaling is bad only in Journeys. XY has alot of stupid shit like this.
>>
>>50790965
Yes, Ash has always been portrayed as someone who never really had an extraordinary talent from the beginning, literally a good number of his medals in Kanto are because he helped the gym leader or showed a heroic quality, not to mention that he was always losing every league (except the orange league) until Alola, so we saw how Ash had to mature and leave several of his vices like his laziness and ego in order to improve himself.
>>
>>50790970
>What would be pathetic is Leon not one shotting it.
Why? One shotting another mon has never been the standard for showing one mon being much stronger then another, because it's visually incredibly boring. Strength is shown in utter control of the battle field, never sweating. A good battle to show off Leon's Charizard would be to have it take hit after hit from Mega Zard, but completely shaking it off. Meanwhile it's return fire would very much hurt Mega Zard but not one shot it. And when it eventually hits the point of the D-Pulse to the face into knock out, it'd be incredibly clear how strong Leon's Zard is without embarrassing Alain and making his return pointless.
>The only reason people think Diantha is le weak is because XY offended her status as a champion by making her struggle against Greninja, which was bad writing.
Your obsession with putting down XY will forever cloud your ability to judge this series objectively. You will enjoy shit for the rest of your life and you'll think it's okay because at least you're epically owning XYfags, who will never care about what you think. You will never be happy, you will never be right. You will die praising a child's cartoon that even other people who watch children's cartoons laugh at

Or, you know, get an Ultra Beast that no one else had access to, a Mythical that no one else had access to, and a special Z-move, that no one else has access to, given to him by an island god just cause.
>>
>>50791011
>One shotting another mon has never been the standard for showing one mon being much stronger then another,
Ash's Charizard wrecked Casey's team with one shots. Pikachu did that several times as well. Have you even watched other series that aren't XY?
>>
>>50791011
which is why the only valid complaint is the battle was too short. If they had more time, we could have seen MCX getting shit on more, however, I doubt the XYfags would have been satisfied. They still would've cried about Leon only using 2 mons and him winning with base zard, which adding more time wouldn't and shouldn't have changed.

he gave soon-to-be-winner Ash a close fight, using a training team.

I think Leon would win in a hand-to-hand battle against the other champions. He studied under Mustard so I bet he knows martial arts, but would struggle against Alder.

You are retarded. Pikachu winning with a Z-Move isn't even a depiction of Ash's battling style, it's just raw power vs ground type asspull.

>>
>>50792208
Fine, name a time Ash asspulled something in JN, and it was considered his battling style. Remember, I'm talking about asspulls here and not creativity, which using a Z-Move clearly isn't.
>>
>>50792201
Leon is going to lose to Ash, his second loss after Eternatus.
Cynthia will only have only the one to Ash.
All without needing powerspots like leon does.

His future looks bleak

Literally anything he does with Electroweb.
>>
>>50792253
Creativity.
>>
>>50792259
Yeah, you're right, Ash's ass was creative enough to set off the sprinklers in Brock's gym and use Thunder Armor, so using some webs to defy the laws of physics is totally within its ballpark.
>>
>>50792278
How is electroweb an asspull in any way? It does mostly what its description in the games do. Ash just uses it in creative ways
>>
>>50790515
So this confirms literally no one likes trip? Alain and Sawyer can be argued to both count as main rivals but barry was definitely a side rival and the main event in sinnoh was always paul
>>
>>50792294
>How is electroweb an asspull in any way?
In its debut episode, it was literally used as a DEM to save Pikachu from dying to Mimikyu's Z-move.
>It does mostly what its description in the games do.
Since when does Electroweb work as Protect that completely blocks Z-moves in the games?

No, it's pathetic to not want Lucario to beat it.
You don't want it because it would seem like the dog succeeded in everything the frog failed, so you cope by wanting Pikachu to do it.
>>
>>50790968
That’s the reasoning they’ll probably give but it still ends up being pointless less hype since

1. They’ve been hyping him up as an unbeatable force this entire saga so it’s just reminding us of what we already knew

2. Alain is the only non-Champion there so anyone else would have done that job better than them bringing back Alain just to job

You will get Lucario vs Charizard and you WILL like it.

>>50792663
I dont. I cant understand how you wouldnt want Pikachu to finish off Zard. He's Ash's first and strongest mon, and this will probably be Ash's biggest battle in his life. Pikachu deserves it and its a cool parallel to Leon and his zard.. Also, I still think Lucario is beating Mega Chomp so im not sure if you're projecting with that Greninja stuff. At this point if you think Lucario can ever be called a jobber like Greninja, you have to be a frogfag.
>>
>>50792723
I think simple. Lucario is the shillmon of the season, so he's the one who fights Zard. Why would I expect anything else?

Yes, they made a mistake in the first one, you can see many diference so is not an exact copy. The second is just the same characters position, but past and present.
>>
>>50793179
They couldn't put in AG because it would have mogged PM into oblivion. I mean, just look at that magnificent design. Now compare it to Gmax Charizard. Cringe, wouldn't work out. Everyone would have started rewatching XY instead if they put in AG, ruining PM's ratings.
>>
>>50793145
They're probably going to air one of the final arcs all in one go. Either Ash vs Leon will be aired all at once, or Goh vs Regigigas.
>>
>>50793145
Something else is airing this week, but my guess is that is was planned for two reasons:
>animes normally go on break for a bit halfway through the year, like they do on new years
>the production is an absolute mess, the execs decision to change the plan and follow tomioka's "incredible script" has fucked over the animation staff; they were NOT planning for animating all seven battles and the disaster of a staff list for PM115 proves that
So, they are using this three week reprieve to desperately catch up on work for the semifinals and the finals; they probably told TV Tokyo this, who promptly filled PM's slots for the next couple of weeks

Another example of retards who don’t actually watch the show. Pikachu literally overpowered Electivire right before it used the Z-Move, and Ash said Pikachu wanted to do it just because it was an Electric battle, it wasn’t necessary to win. Pikachu had already defeated that same Electivire anyways.

Now fuck off.

no he didn't. Volkner was dominating. Volkner wanted to experience the Z Move to test Electivire's ability as well. He was confident in his Pokemon. But the power of BS Gimmick was unfortunately stronger. If he stuck to strats and didn't stand around to let Ash use the Z Move then he would have mopped the floor with Ash

A whole lot better than Rica's aged growling and screaming. Daiki actually displays a variety of emotions in PM, where Rica seems content to phone it in. Even episodes where Ash SHOULD display some emotional resonance are being undersold by Rica.

I'm a frogfag but I think each season should have its own ace and team, I just like Greninja. What I don't like is that his life seems a little lonely and miserable in the forest. My biggest hope was that he had a few Pokemon friends to hang out with, showing that he's like Ash, always making friends. He can still have the duty of protecting the forest from the vines, but there can be some levity and friendship in his life.

Because nothing that Rica is doing in PM is fun to listen to. Also I don't watch My Hero, or anything else that Daiki's been in, other than his cameo in AOT. If you honestly think Rica is giving a great performance as Ash, and that Daiki is giving a bad performance as Goh, I'm just going to assume that your feelings about the characters are getting in the way.

What's funny is I don't even think that's true, at least in terms of powerscaling bullshit. But for Ashfags it isn't enough for Ash to be strong, no other character should ever be allowed to put him on the ropes or achieve crazy shit in his proximity.
