When is Ash letting Dracovish use Fishious Rend in an actual fight?
>>50790521she did it twicehttps://twitter.com/livedoornews/status/1410918871830208514
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 KalosFuck Yajima.Fuck the frog.Fuck Serena.Fuck XY.But especially, fuck its fags.
>>50790530im glad you updated your question, you used to sound retarded
>>50790460All the Pokémon animations that don’t involve battling fucking suck except that Gengar one
>tweet of piplup falling down has as many likes as the m8 promosbased japaneseshame on the writers for killing the hype
>>50790573CHADlup being king in Nippon
>>50790546fuck off if you got nothing better to say asshole. where THE FUCK is fishious rend? do these writers even play the games at all, fucking grinds my gears
>>50790539>>50790521>Same poster>Skips out on later episode previews, which do worse than regular episodeskek
>>50790582Will be used by Ash to win against a slowed down by Electroweb Charizard. Just wait.
>>50790460Game 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.
>>50790646Ash only lost 1 pokemon against Paul tho, and he didnt even use his Spirit bomb Aura sphere.
>>50790614Dawnfags are retarded.
>>50790661Paul didn't use any gimmicks either.
>>50790661If 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.
>>50790614I mean this preview had 30k and it just piplup on a pot, that's still super goodhttps://twitter.com/anipoke_PR/status/1418450812695572481
>>50790673If you're counting that as a gimmick, then Ash used 2 gimmicks against Raihan.
>>50790686Are you implying that Ash doesn't blatantly cheat?
For me, it's Satosere
>>50790582>>50790530why the fuck is this schizo still here? you've literally been BTFO and exposed for having zero comprehension and listening skills every single time>Fishious Rend was first used in picrel>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.Please kill yourself.
>>50790718kek. I was trying to be nice to the anon earlier, but I guess someone had to tell him this
can someone post the full image so we can worship his ass
Just woke up and apparently May showing up as a cameo watching TV was leaked. How hyped are we Maysisters? It's been 14 years
>>50790766Anon you were dreaming......
can someone tell me why XYfags think Alain should have beat Leon, even though hes not even champion level and couldn't do shit to Steven. From hearing them talk about Alain, you would think hes a god.
>>50790806what else do you expect from Yajima's cabal
>>50790826B-b-being based chads?
>>50790806Because 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.
>>50790521>Dawn wonShitrena could never
>>50790806Because has Alainfags are mentally ill.
>>50790806>based on Anakin skywalkerhe's the most talented trainer that ever existed
>>50790841Theres 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.
>>50790886I'm a 100% straight girl
>>50790806Dude, where have you been these six years?Alainfags have always had this cult-like fixation for the character, they just snap because their character was dumped like trash.
>>50790806>XYfags think Alain should have beat LeonNobody thinks that. You made it up. XYfags just wanted Alain to do well
>>50790841>Because Alain is the underdogAlain 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. .
>>50790903>Top 1 strugglng at the first roundWould be bad writing.
>>50790944Leon 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
>>50790944>XYfags want/enjoy bad writingnot surprising.
>>50790917>Ash was the true underdog>Protagonist>Underdog
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)>his ace charizard one shots a mon>his base charizard shits on an ace M-charizard Xthe 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 patheticWhat 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 writingCouldn'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 Greninjaand people think powerscaling is bad only in Journeys. XY has alot of stupid shit like this.
>>50790965Yes, 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
>>50791011>utter control of the battlefield>taking hit after hitYou already contradicted yourself in the first paragraph, I won't even bother reading the rest
>>50790896annet please go back to twitter
>>50791007>so we saw how Ash had to mature and leave several of his vices like his laziness and ego in order to improve himself.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?
>>50791011which 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.>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 thinkalso nta, but you did type out a paragraph.
>>50791041>If they had more time, we could have seen MCX getting shit on moreOrdinarily, I'd agree, but you can have too much of a good thing, so I'm not so sure about that, anon.
But you will praise Greninja dominating Lucario completely, because that le good right?
>>50791054>Greninja dominating Lucariohot
>>50790944>>Top 1 strugglng at the first roundhe struggled vs Lances Gyarados
>Recoil damage from Flare Blitz, grazed by Air Slash, several small impacts from Ancient Power Please, watch the episode before typing One Shot
>>50791095Lol no, he just lost a beam struggle and that's it.
I want to sit down and watch their hot champion orgy
>>50791112>Dragon Dance boosted Aqua Tail>Ice Fang barrage
>>50791112>just lost a beam struggle>"just">Gyarados ate an x4 Thudner Punch and was ok
>>50791110No, anon, you don't understand. It was a one-shot because the Zard went down after it got hit with one attack.
>>50791119>>50791122I think we can agree that Lance (actual champion) > Alain (nobody) then
>>50791135>any actual champion > Alainyes
>If it was an actual irl bracket Leon would be eliminated round 1 by AshLucky he got Alain, the weakest M8
>>50791115This, but with Cynthia and Diantha
>>50791154>>If it was an actual irl bracket Leon would be eliminated round 1 by AshYup
>>50790766>I just woke upYeah, sometimes when you wake up your thoughts can be a bit of a jumble and you think the dream was real life. Sorry bout that, bud.
>>50791154>Lucky he got Alain, the weakest M8Cynthia and Steven have to face the MC while Leons plot armor protects him until the finals.
>>50791110Recoil damage stopped existing since...BW I think
>>50791110>>Recoil damage from Flare Blitz, grazed by Air Slash, several small impacts from Ancient PowerIs this the final Alaincope?
>>50791201Did Ash's Talonflame ever experience recoil damage after Brace Bird?
I still can't believe Alan's cameo was only half an episode with him performing worse than Ash against Tobias. So much for the strongest rival
>>50790896Only in your head.
>>50791216>the strongest rivalThat was never a thing.
>>50791216Paul was stronger
>>50791216He did so terribly that now people in the fandom are seriously considering Paul to be either on the same level or stronger than him.
>>50791249PM Paul is factually strongerhe 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.
>>50791306Yeah but if he faced AG Ash he would be in trouble. Superhuman strength beats technique.
>>50791319Oh yeah that was the Ash that lifted logs like nothing isn't it
>>50791361Ho-oh blessing. That's also explain his inmortality and how he's loved by a lot of female pokemon and human girls.
How do you guys feel about the animation choice for Dragon Pulse? A beam of energy transforming itself to look like a dragon.
>>50791410Looks better and more interesting than the turquoise ball, the only complaint I have is the lack of consistency.
Ash x Dawn Goh x CholeSee you in pokespain>>50790521>>50790539>>50790573
>Diantha wipes the floor with Lance 3v1>Semis are 6v6>117 will have great animationNot bad
So we agree Paul and Raihan are stronger than Iris. They both beat Dragonite handily, the mon who beat the ace of Iris.
>>50791491>>Diantha wipes the floor with Lance 3v1>>Semis are 6v6>>117 will have great animation??
is Dawn coming back again? I might watch this garbage show if so
>>50791496>the ace of Iris???
>>50791496Ash's Dragonite didn't beat Iris' Excadrill tho
>>50791519Oh, thank god, I thought I was misremembering.
>>50791516Alain is probably weaker than them too.
why does shitting on Edgelain after he got BTFOd feel so good?
>>50791533its literally because of the Alainfags and XYfags.
how would you guys feel if Ash got to the finals with Leon BUT still loses in a way that's not as bad (assuming its a 6v6) lets say Ash gets Leon down to 2/6 while Ash is at 1/6 and Ash loses how would you feel about that
>>50791496Iris a complete joke.
>>50791533Youre just a bitter XYfaggot
>>50791572Wait, where are her pants?
So what happened to the town people who liked Ash? Did they all die in the 25 years waiting for him to accomplish something? I demand my party
Gotta love Chesnaught dodging all those Dynamax moves only to die with one slap
Will AU Ash ever return or is he canceled for good
>>50791496>still thinking Iris was fighting seriously
>>50791632SV anime will feature AU Ash.
>>50791635is this the new Irisfag cope?
So we know Ash is using Pikachu and Gengar against Steven. Since he won't use two aces in a single match i guess that leaves the duck as the only option. Dragonite will get his time to shine against Cynthia's Garchomp
>>50791647>ends up higher ranked than Ash even though she "lost" to him, only because she directed Ash's Dragonite to victory
>>50791533Is fun and i say it as someone who likes Alan
>>50791649Mega Lucario will still be doing most of the work vs GarchompOtherwise its got nothing to do
>>50791694Mega Lucario has done next to nothing since Ash obtained the key stone so i wouldn't be surprised if his only showing at full power is against Leon
>>50791666She said she wanted to fight Dragonite at her strongest, all Iris did was get Dragonite to give it her all. So we learned Dragonite > Haxorus.
>>50791708Pikachu will bring down Zard with the Z-moveLucario is for Cynthiaor for both of themBut obviously SOME gimmick will be used vs Cynthia, and it can only really be Lucario
>>50791649Mega Lucario will fight Charizard, people ITT are just in denial about that.It'll be Pikachu (Z-Move) vs Mega MetagrossGengar (GMax) vs Garchomp.
>>50791723Switch Pikachu and Gengar and you've got kino.
>>50791723>It'll be Pikachu (Z-Move) vs Mega Metagross>Gengar (GMax) vs Garchomp.lol no0 chance that Pikachus Z-move will be blown that early on Stevenand we LITERALLY saw Gengar defeat Metagross vs Paul precisely as prep for this and it even learned a fire move
>>50791735Well, we literally see Gengar being destroyed by Cradily and Pikachu fighting Metagross, anon.
>>50791741>we literally see Gengar being destroyed by Cradily?Watch the trailer again
>>50791741>he thinks PV shows everything
>>50790766May don't care about Ash you dumb advancecuck
>>50791733Nope, Shirona needs to be beaten by GMax to further destroy headcanons.
>>50791801>Not wanting Pikachu to Z-move Cynthia's Chomp into oblivionFine, be boring if you want to.
>>50791811With how the anime treated the Alain fight, I doubt we would get Pikachu fighting a ground type with electric attacks
>>50791813Anon, Tomioka stated in the interview that Ash's battling style is different from the other Champions while referencing the Brock gym battle. Do you seriously believe we won't have Pikachu taking down Garchomp?
>>50791608to be fair it was beaten by a 4x move, it's even weirder it didn't go down to Max Airstream
>>50791831>Do you seriously believe we won't have Pikachu taking down Garchomp?Yes.
>>50791496>two gym leaderslmao nope>>50791563You're a complete joke.Iris>>>Raihan the jobber
>There's a chance the final battle will be decided with Charizard vs LucarioI will pull a Kyoani if this is how it ends
>>50791982Ash can only win if he uses Pikachu at the end or his own Charizard
Guys, who else besides Serena and Iris had a new design?
>>50791952Well in that case: Hi, welcome to /padt/, the thread dedicated to discussing anything pokemon anime-related. If you want to see some must-watch episodes of the anime, I recommend OS005, OS058, DP064, and SM109.
>>50791496I would say yes but they don't have game plot armor
>>50790965>>50791007Wut? They're both underdogs. From an outside perspective they're both newbies who just appeared and not the usual top guys from the e4, etc.
>>50791249>>50791216>>50791262Paul IS the stronget rival as of now, he managed to have draw with Ash using new pokemon.
>>50791683is incredible how hard pikachu carried that battle
BASED Belowski I know you're here.
>>50791831>ash wins and becomes the new champion by activating the stadium's sprinkler systemkino
>>50792142You gotta stay true to your roots if you wanna truly make it to the top without being a sellout.
>>50791801>Nope, Shirona needs to be beaten by GMax to further destroy headcanons.Which headcanons are those?
I am gonna rewatch pokemon, I noticed there are multiple options for everything pre BW (kanto to sinnoh), what are the best? SOSSubs, the pre-DP64 batch or OS-XY subs?
>>50792081You 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.
>>50792186That she's anywhere near Leon's level of course.
>>50792193>asspull>Not Ash's battling style
>>50792208Fine, 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.
>>50792201Leon 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
>>50792245>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 doesthe headcanon of Leon having a Mega Y will be destroyed too
>>50792237Literally anything he does with Electroweb.
>>50792259Yeah, 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.
>>50792278How is electroweb an asspull in any way? It does mostly what its description in the games do. Ash just uses it in creative ways
>>50790515So 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?
>>50791632>canceled for goodTheir design are so shit no wonder.
>>50792319>SMI'm talking about JN here anon, read >>50792237JN has been consistently free of asspull situations, nothing like the Mimikyu fight happened and electro web was consistently used as a web, as it should be.
>>50792344>Motor DriveYeah true, forgot about that one. I'll concede for that, then.
>>50792338If JN is going to ride off the coattails of SM's success then it has to carry its sins as well.
>>50792366How do you fucking forget something like that?
>>50791632Dead and gone forever
>>50792344There's nothing wrong with the Z move overpowering an ability. This isn't the games.
>>50790543Still better than SM. Cope, SMcuck. Have XY rent-free forever with your victim complex. Your series is shit, ugly to watch, unfunny and outright killed the ratings lmaoliterally only beloved by trannies from Twitter, maybe you should go and dilate with them?
>>50792307Barry would have returned if not for his VA facing certain problems
>>50792404Why are you responding to a bait post by one of the newer shitposters retard? Christ, some XYfags are stupider than the SMfags they get mad at
>>50791723We see Ash using Gmax in the trailer, which only covers the first round. Clearly the one in denial is you anon.
>>50792395>there's nothing wrong with asspulling a win despite getting outplayed by the opponent all match
Kanto Gym Leaders then>Brock, Misty's sisters, Surge, Erika, Sabrina, Koga, Blaine, GiovanniKanto Gym Leaders now>Forrest, Misty, Visquez, Erika, Sabrina, Janine?, Blaine, PaulThoughts?
>>50792416To be fair, it's very on-theme for the show and character.
>>50791723Mega Lucario vs Mega GarchompGMax Gengar vs Mega MetagrossPikachu Z Move vs GMax CharizardThat makes more sense
>>50792416Except it was perfectly fine, Ash pulled out a powerful move to win and Volkner was fine with it
>>50792431>we will have to watch Mega Garchomp x2Boring. Make Kommo-o her ace for the Ash gight.
>>50792431>Mega Lucario vs Mega Garchomp>GMax Gengar vs Mega Metagross>Pikachu Z Move vs GMax Charizardthis
>>50792413>Bait>When yesterday I had a prolonged discussion on several points from the post where the people I was arguing with failed to prove me wrong and just quit after accusing me of lyingFeel free to continue using this cope if it makes you fell better about your shit tase.
>>50792447>Pikachu Z Move vs GMax CharizardNah
>>50792451There's been prolonged " discussions " about your retardation ever since you started the XY Korrina gym battle and the schizo matsui self-insert SM-DP delusion. There's no need to repetitively hit the same points over and over again because you're genuinely a dumbfuck
what if its Z-move Pikachu vs Z-move Kommo-o? and then base Chomp vs base Dragonite
>>50792475Definitely would be interesting, although I would hope the finals would be more than 1 gimmick, otherwise it might be Lucario finishing off zard.
>>50792451But you're the one who stopped replying after getting btfo by pic related?
Serena's biggest flaw is that everything about her is Superficial. Her personality, her dream, her crush and her dynamic with people feel manufactured and forced. Her only defining trait is her attractive look. I can't even imagine Ash and Serena having normal interaction that kids around their ace suppose to have.
>>50792504>literally random shit and buzzwords
>>50792487>Leon allows Ash to use all three gimmicks in one battle>Ash wins but powerlevelfags will claim until the end of times that "it doesn't count" because of the advantage he was givenPlease no
>>50792514> Anything negative on Serena> Litterally random shit & Buzzword Amourshipper detected.
They should have kept Serena sassy instead of trying to make a "Hinata" out of her.
>>50792526Christ, retardation knows no bounds
My heart beats faster every time Cynthia is on screen.
>>50792563Shut up Alder
>>50792520you know what, I wouldnt care if Pikachu finishes off Zard. Nothing against Lucario, but for some reason im not down with anyone else but Pikachu beating the strongest trainer's Ace.
>>50792572>for some reasonWe all know the reason, and it's a pathetic.
>>50792592why is it pathetic to want Pikachu to beat Zard?
>>50792597No, 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.
>>50790968That’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 knew2. Alain is the only non-Champion there so anyone else would have done that job better than them bringing back Alain just to job
Nemona would have look prettier with better bangs, currently she looks more manly.
did koharu die in the tundra or something
>>50792609I dont like greninja tho? im not one of those faggots that thinks Greninja is stronger because he clowned Lucario pre aura boost/training. Lucario already has better feats than Greninja. Anyways I like to shit on Greninja, but you're too insecure bringing him up out of nowhere.
>>50792642>N-No I d-don't like greninja actuallySure anon I'll pretend I believe you.You will get Lucario vs Charizard and you WILL like it.
>>50792663I 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.
>>50792723I think simple. Lucario is the shillmon of the season, so he's the one who fights Zard. Why would I expect anything else?
>>50792619No she's just taking some time off due to her about to become a mother and all
People claiming AshGreninja has been retconned is the dumbest thing ever.
I want to see some pikakino
>>50792873apparently some people would rather not.
>>50792873Well, rewatch SM then
>>50792959Greninja will show up in the Masters 8. Cope.
>>50792572>for some reason im not down with anyone else but Pikachu beating the strongest trainer's Ace.No worries, Pikachu will beat Garchomp
>>50791996See you when ash is at it trying to win the league next season
Reservebros, how are we feeling?
So, did we ever find out why there's a break this week?
>>50793179>The animators forgot to draw AG, even though they were referencing the exact scenes in XY to recreate it in the new artstyle>happens twicekek you dont "accidentally" draw Greninja instead of AG, especially when you're recreating a past frame.
>>50790718you have no proof. show me a webm THEN we'll talk
>>50793179Yes, 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.
>>50793179They 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.
>>50793145They'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.
>>50793145Something 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 thatSo, 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
>>50793120we stopped giving a shit about this awful series and hoping it will crash and born.
>>50793298we know, Leon
>>50793283>So, they are using this three week reprieve to desperately catch up on work for the semifinals and the finalsThe tournament will likely last 8-9 episodes. Episodes are made some time in advance, it's likely the entire tournament is completely animated by now
>>50793298You wish she was that big.
I feel Gladion is a bit underratedHe's the best rival after Paul
>>50793326Yea the key animation is done months in advance, but corrections and stuff take place in the weeks leading up to the epThe semifinals and finals are 1-2 months away respectively, the animation is certainly not done yet
>>50793347nope, those are too big
>>50793420wtf? I love Goh now?!?
I just wanna see Seismic Toss Lizardon again, bros...
Does someone really want Ash beating Leon? Reply honestly
>>50793420>sit through decades of Ash being a jobber>sit through decades of league losses>sit through decades of reserves barely growing>enter Goh who captures nearly all his pokemon easily, whose battling skills are far beyond that of OS Ash, whose reserves get episodes more often and train each other
>>50793509Nobody likes Leon unironically
>>50792723Anon we have already seen the peak of Pikachu in SM. That's enough, Lucario will shine, this is his season
>>50793509I want Leon to beat Ash to a bloody pulp
>>50792504>talking about superficiality in a kid show
Koharu will pull an Iris when she next appears....
>>50792404dangerously basedmentally ill SMtroons get the rope
>>50793353No he isn’t. You can’t even accurately describe what Ash and Gladion’s rivalry was. They were the best example of rivals for the sake of.
Dracovish is gonna job in the Steven fight because that thing needs a loss and Tomioka doesn't want Ash's Pokemon to seem overpowered. Lucario is also gonna lose in the Cynthia fight
>>50793561she'll be black? will her eevee evolve in Umbreon?
>>50793584>Tomioka doesn't want Ash's Pokemon to seem overpoweredHe did a terrible job then
>>50793595>He did a terrible jobof course
>>50792416Another 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.
>>50793283>>50793259>>50793145Has nothing to do with this. There’s a 2 week break because Big Hunter and Jap Mythos variety shows are getting one hour specials. We’ll get one in return in the future, likely for a Masters 8 battle
>>50793179Somewhere in the multiverse there's a timeline with an XY without the stupid fanfiction frog form. Beautiful
>>50793584>Tomioka doesn't want Ash's Pokemon to seem overpoweredLiterally goes against what they said about Ash being unbeatable
>>50793509I'd rather not have ash win but I dislike everything about Leon so fuck him.
>>50793608>Pikachu literally overpowered Electivire right before it used the Z-Moveno 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
>>50793509I want it to either end in a tie or with Ash's defeat because if Ash wins i fear he will be retired.
>>50793621>Literally goes against what they said about Ash being unbeatableanon why do you think they're bullshitting with Dragonite losing every single match, including the sparring match with Lucario? they want to make it seem less unstoppable, literally nerfed the shit to give it some sort of redemption fight, probably with Cynthia's Chomp.
>>50793608yea these retards make statements and dont even properly watch the anime.
>>50793614>pokemon will get 2 1-hour specialAsh's final battle will be 4 episodes long and it'll air over the course of 2 weeksJNKINO is coming, bros...
>>50793420I'm sure that sentiment is solely based on his skin color and androgyny.
>>50793509I want Ash to win so they can retire him
>>50793690his voice is awful. getting Midoriya was a mistake
it's so funny seeing furfags and dogfuckers argue with each other. at least Frogchads are more united, and none of us save for a few shitposters actually expect for the frog to come back or steal the spotlight because that's dumb. i'd rather honestly see the frog and Ash put an end to the vines bullshit, if PM continues that is.
>>50793632Yes he did you fucking retard. Thanks for proving my point that you dumbasses don’t watch the show. Now what’s your rebuttal?
>>50793742show me a webm THEN we'll talk. you're just like that fucker that can't even show me proper proof of fishious rend. if you cant even give me webm proof then fuck off
>>50793420>chinks hate itnow I like him even more
>>50793701A 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.
>>50793690PokéTaiwan said the main reasons Go is hated in China are:>He caught Suicune>He is selfish>He gets more screentime than Ash
>>50793778being a contrarian does not make you unique, special nor interesting
Everything wrong with PM can be attributed to its director being a woman.
>>50793778>hating Ricalmao go watch the dub then you Midoriya-loving faggot
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.
>>50793762>it was bait all alongShould’ve known. Thanks for the concession.
>>50793785>>50793791>why don't you hold the same opinion as the club??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.
Can he beat Leon?
I hope the next series gets better EDs
>>50793806didn't ask, didn't readyou will never be a woman.
>>50793762should've known you were the fishious rend retard. I thought you learned your lesson when you got BTFOd
>>50793584>that thing needs a lossGodxorus has beaten it. One more win for Irischads
>>50793802>b-b-bait!!!can't show me a webm because you dont have proof. touch grass motherfucker
>>50793811>Pikachu farted electricity>Gyrados fainted
>>50792759Koharu wants a baby!
>>50793827>He doesn't know
>>50793827>he doesnt knowngmi
>>50793811Stop posting this ugly thing.God, I hate mega evolution, half of them look like shit.
>>50793822You lost this interaction.
>>50793839it was never an interaction. I do not argue with trannoids
>>50793845You lost this interaction again.
>Wins against Ash>Brokes the community>Loses against Leon>Brokes the communityHow can someone be SO BASED
>>50793847>You lost this-ACK!
>>50793824after Iris lost to Ash's surprise Draco Meteor, Haxorus' Dragon Pulse was trained to insane levels to easily obliterate Draco Meteors. IRISCHADS WE'RE GONNA WIN AGAINST SHITRONA
>>50793856>Tobias>Cameron>Sawyer>Alain>GohWhat is it about these five characters that always leaves Ashfags buck broken?
>>50793866Another OFF-SCREEN progression? Irisbros...can we even have good writing?
>>50793857You keep losing + keep exposing your tranny obsession, so that counts as an extra loss.
>>50793856You forgot,>Cucked Goh out of his supposed wife to be, Koharu in terms of VA
>>50793871They're better than him
>>50793892>"He's marrying Koharu?! Oh thank goodn- I mean oh no!! I'm a cuck!! Alain cucked me!! I'm so fucking pathetic!! I'm so crestfallen that I'm not even going to the wedding."
>>50793902What'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.
>>50793875I too think that every Master 8 character should have had a training arc, and we should see every single new technique they're going to use before the tournament. After all, Pokemon is an anime all about training and battling!
>>50793920No, there is another
>>50793920I think she might have fallen for Ash if she knew how many cool bug types he had! Journeys was just trying to make Goh look better than Ash again, but I think that girl would love to bounce on Ash's big dick!
>>50793826NTA but are you mentally stable? The proof is the episode? I just watched the battle on YouTube. You are clearly wrong. The 5:30 mark. https://youtube.com/watch?v=jvTu2jHa6x4
>>50793829Goh will give her the seed
>>50793931very convenient that Ash wasn't allowed to participate in that Battle Royale for some ridiculous reason. Probably to prevent him from battling Lyla, because she would get so fucking wet for Ash's battle skills. Asahi would have gotten wet while watching it too.
>>50793945I will always read this in kanahana's voice
>>50793933>abandoned butterfreeNo Ash will never be a bugchad
Pls make new thread spergs
>>50792759Koharu begged Kukui to give her a baby that night. Ash has another little brother on the way.
>>50793938>Electivire still got up after taking a point blank iron tail to the head>clearly showing no signs of stoppingYeah. Fuck off. You have no idea what you're fucking talking about, fucker. This is why you or the Fishious Rend defenders can't even show me proper proof because you fuckers ALWAYS get proven wrong. Touch fucking grass
>>50793878>You keep losing + keep exposing your- ACK!
>>50793964But you said Pikachu didn’t overpower Electivire and Ash didn’t use the Z-Move because Pikachu wanted to, when that’s exactly what happened. What are you honestly talking about?
>>50793970Everyone wants to fuck Goh!
>>50793993>>50794009are we seriously gonna use these two threads at the same fucking time?
