If Cynthia really does give Ash a hard time, it makes sense. Half his team shouldn't be able to stand up to her given they're new captures.

>>
>>51139061
When do pokemon stop being 'new captures' to you? None of the game protags had their pokemon longer than a year. Ash has had Pikachu for less than a year. Hell, given SM to PM is a 9 month leap, OS to SM is all <3 months. Ash's Pikachu with less than 3 months experience defeated Drake's Dragonite, Brandon's Regice, Tobias's Darkrai and Tapu Koko. All of those opponents being worthy of the E4.

Really. The 'new capture' take is just asinine. I don't care if Cynthia has had her Garchomp since she first became a trainer. Ash has been defeating adult trainers with decades of experience over him for ages now. Even with his newest captures. Pretending Cynthia is anything special in this regard is silly.
>>
>>51139083
Serena has quite a bit of experience with those
>>
>>51139019
Yeah thats be as dumb as have ash constantly lose to the same person, hype up how he will win the one time it matters most, and still have him lose
>>

This

The only pokemon of Cynthia's I can see Sirfetch'd beating is her Roserade. I do hope Sirfetch'd gets to KO something, the poor duck needs a decent win.
>>
>>51139061
Ash’s JN team are all Level 80 meanwhile Cynthia’s strongest is 88 while the rest of hers are levels 84 to 86. This should definitely be hard fought for him.
>>
>>51139090
Yeah, no way that would never happen
>>
>>51138987
jokes on you I want Iris
>>
do we even know cynthia's team?
>>
>>51139107
Garchomp, Roserade, Milotic, Gastrodon, Kommo-o, and Glaceon
>>
>>51139088
based. People with the "new capture" take are just reservefags that think reserves are entitled to being used. If time a Pokemon was trained/used was all that mattered, there would be no young trainers near the top 100.
>>
>>51139107
If it's everything she used this series:

Garchomo, Kommo-o, Roserade, Gastrodon, Milotic...and 1 mystery Pokemon.

Spiritomb or Togekiss are the likely last pokemon, but it's also possible she won't use Gastrodon or Milotic against Ash like she did Iris. So who knows.
>>
>>51139121
Shes gonna lead spiritomb just like in the games
>>
>>51139094
If we want to talk levels, it makes sense to go from the highest level teams (since this is the Masters 8 with everyone going all out). In that case, Iris's team is all Level 81 and up with Haxorus being Level 83. Ash defeated it with Dragonite.

At minimum Ash's Dragonite is Level 83, probably his Dracovish as well. His Pikachu and Lucario are both significantly stronger than that. So overall, Ash's team matches up to Cynthia's range of 84 to 86 with Garchomp being the only potential outlier at 88.
>>
>>51139115
She's not using that random Glaceon that only appeared in BW.

Spiritomb and/or Togekiss are her last pokemon. Would be cool to see both.
>>
>>51139140
That is Cynthia’s highest level team
>>
oh wow goh went off the jungle again, shame, i wanted to bang him
>>
>>51139140
Canonically lvl 80s, not your fanfic.
>>
>>51139143
>She's not using that random Glaceon that only appeared in BW.
Says who?
>>
>>51139147
Right and I'm saying if we're using Cynthia's highest level team then scaling Ash above Iris's team (which ranges 81-83) makes sense. Since his Dragonite defeated her Level 83 Haxorus and both Pikachu and Lucario are stronger.

>>51139151
I don't even know what your retarded post was meant to mean. Did I deny the levels somewhere?
>>
>>51139143
She had a Glaceon in BW2, what are you talking about?
>>
>>51139152
Why would that random Glaceon appear? She'll be closer to her game team, so Togekiss or Spiritomb is likely.
>>
>>51139155
Ash’s team are canonically Level 80 is what he’s saying

>>51139159
Because it’s a member of her team? Are you retarded? The fact that she even brought out a Kommo-o means they aren’t sticking to her BDSP team

Everytime people mention Ash becoming a teacher I just think of Rean Besn
>>
>>51139195
Okay. They seem a bit off then with Ash's team being superior to Iris who sits at the 81-83 range.

>>51139216
I wasn't aware of an event being announced yesterday for a game that I don't even play or care about.

This 40 second battle was more intense than any of the first round battles. DP was the peak of battling.

Why did Metagross get such lame attack animations and so little screentime? does its merch sell this badly?
>>
>>51139232
Too high IQ to animate
>>
>>51139223
Ash’s team are only slightly under leveled compared to her’s, so it’s not that much of a big deal. At least it’s not something like Lance who’s lower than even Raihan.
>>
That Koharu episode was beautiful. I really liked seeing her finally interested in her dad's work. It was so heartwarming seeing how far she's come. From the girl who was too cool for pokemon to a woman who yearns for understanding them. I'm still hoping for her to show up in gen 9 but damn, that episode is satisfying as conclusion for her too.
>>
>>51139223

The only thing I liked was her actually missing Ash and Goh
>>
>>51139244
Literally nobody cares.
>>
>>51139244
I'm glad at least 1 anon liked and cared about the Koharu episode
>>
>>51139240
It's a little curious to me because her Haxorus's Outrage was being dealt with by base Garchomp IIRC while Ash's base Lucario overpowered Raihan's Level 76 GMax Duraludon. I know applying level logic doesn't really work but that's basically a 4-level gap compared to a 5 level gap.

Plus while Ash's Pikachu did use 10,000,000 Volts Steven's Metagross is Level 79 to my recollection and even with Mega Evolution it failed to knock out Pikachu. You could chalk that up to some Affection/Friendship shenanigans but I would honestly think Pikachu is way higher levelled.

>>51139246
No.
>>
>>51139167
How the fuck did Lucario go from Level 1 to 80 in like 3 weeks?
>>
>>51139265
Ash's Aura bullshit, unironically.
>>
>>51139265
ash started a battle with lucario then swapped into the frog. that's where lucario got a high amount of XP
>>
>>51139244
I think it was a good episode for her but not so much a good conclusion. She should’ve been introduced to Ilima instead of Lana so she could see Eevee’s Z-Move to realize that even when it’s not evolved Eevee still has the power of its 8 evolutions. Then finally show off Gmax Eevee for Koharu to see the full extent of Eevee’s abilities finally realize Eevee has all kinds of special things about it and it’s possibilities truly are endless.

This was just a thinly veiled Sakuragi backstory episode because funnily enough he’s the only one at the Lab that hasn’t gotten one
>>
>>51139265
Training. So many episodes started with Ash training Riolu in early JN
>>
>>51139167

If dragonite had multiscale didnt that means he can tank a lot of hits?

Considering he jobbed hard in half of his fights says otherwise
>>
I highly doubt the writers aren't leaving some surprises for Cynthia's team. Spiritomb would be the most likely surprise, but having a Lucario vs Lucario battle would also be kino.

Imo, it would be
>Garchomp
>Roserade
>Kommo'o
>Milotic
>Spiritomb
>Gastrodon

Gastrodon would be the counter to Pikashit. Garchomp would be reserved for Lucario. Kommo'o would be for Dracovish and Dragonite. Roserade is a jobber. Milotic takes out Sirfetch'd. Spirtomb is for Gengar.
>>
>>51139265
Ash figured out Pokeani and how to cheese with affectionate crits or sturdy procs
>>
>>51139271
>>51139273
>>51139279
This would have to imply that a lot of his reserves are in their 90s or lvl 100. There is zero chance Riolu had more trainig in that time than Charizard or Infernape.

>>51139232
the animators clearly have no idea how to animate that thing. It's easy to come up with battle animations for bipedal mons like Dragonite or Garchomp, since they move around like humans.
Metagross has a body like a spider and it's also awkward for animators to consider its weight and material in the way it reacts to hits and gravity
>>
I like Dragonite and Lucario but I hate them as Ash's pokemon. They feel off for some reason.
>>
>>51139264
>while Ash's base Lucario overpowered Raihan's Level 76 GMax Duraludon.

Lvl 70 0 SpA Lucario Aura Sphere vs. Lvl 76 0 HP / 0 SpD Duraludon-Gmax: 222-264 (103.2 - 122.7%) -- guaranteed OHKO
>>
>>51139280
Dragonite only lost to Raihan’s Flygon and Paul’s Garchomp though and it did exactly that, tank a lot of hits.
>>
>>51139149
We know how you feel, Sonia
>>
>>51139232
Because it's a joke Like Steven.
>>
>>51139304
Yeah I get we're using levels but I'm not applying the logic of game mechanics. GMax is depicted as fodderising most non-GMax pokemon. It's similar to how Mega Evolution skyrockets your pokemon to the Legendary-tier even though most Megas are statistically closer to a pseudo-legendary overall.
>>
>>51139293
They’ve released Ash’s Pokémon in distributions before and they’ve had similarly high levels. A lot of his reserves aren’t far off.
>>
>>51139265
Same way your shitty team of shitmons became the strongest in the entire region and defeated the Champion after like a week.
>>
>>51139244
>conclusion
Koharu is going to stay for PM2 and terrastalize her Eevee when she goes to the Paldea region with Ash and Goh.
>>
>>51139318
So then use the anime logic where Lucario literally created a “Gigantamax Aura Sphere”. It was so big then it made the stadium glow and broke through the Gmax Rockfall. That’d be like a critical hit in game terms. Duraludon was barely scratched by Lucario’s regular size Aura Spheres, the big one is the one that actually hurt it.
>>
>>51139298

Ash running a bunch of nobody shitters gets old fast

There's not a single memorable character in his AG team aside of sceptile
>>
>>51139244
It barely felt like a conclusion
>>
>>51139320
I think they are just bullshitting desu, levels do not logically make any sense in the context of the anime. You cannot tell me that Charizard isnt level 100 by game logic. Sorry, I won't have it. This is why we need to separate game mechanics from the anime which is supposed to be a more "realistic" portrayal of the Pokemon universe. It shouldnt be hampered by game balancing, and isn't really transferrable between the two mediums.

These events are just tie-ins. I dont see why we should look any more deeper than that. If we do then logic is thrown away and we are simply arguing nonsense.
>>
>>51139338
swellow has some fags and aipom is pretty memorable
>>
>>51139338
Swellow is a fan favorite in Nipland. Most of Ash’s Pokemon voiced by Ishizuka-san are.
>>
>>51139325
Ya, but thats a game. Logic is reserved for game mechanics and balancing. The anime doesnt need either of those things, so logic should be more prevalent. Unfortunately, this series has been the most illogical of any of them, which is saying a lot.
>>
>>51139295
Its also way too big for pikachu
The fucking rat was the size of one of his claws, how the fuck would you write a good battle that is not a copy of the previous 3 pikachu v metagross battles?
>>
>>51139345
No one is arguing anything though? What are you talking about.
>>
I find it interesting that Cynthia and Red have similar level teams and Masters EX is setting up Ash vs Red right now, with Ash treating the events as training for the Masters 8. It's obviously not canon but the two battles are basically serving as counterpart events of similar difficulty for Ash.

>>51139337
Right but what I'm getting at is that Ash can get Lucario to Mega Evolve and stack that 'Gigantamax Aura Sphere'. If Ash does go for Mega Lucario over GMax Gengar here then that could easily justify him defeating Cynthia's Mega Garchomp.
>>
>>51139364
People are arguing about power levels and whether or not Ash is on the same level as Cynthia? Im just saying we shouldnt take any of this as evidence of anything.
>>
>>51139364
Hes just a schizo, let him be
>>
>>51139338
Looks like Cynthia won't even have Lucario even though the doggo is one her team's staple and Lance can't even shill his Dragonote because Ash already owns one too. Those two have lots of trainer overlap.
>>
the animation in fillers is so bad right now, jesus
that golbat shit looked awful
>>
Cynthia will defeat Ash but he will fuck her brains out later that night.
The art of losing the battle, winning the war.
>>
>>51139395
i mean ash can win and fuck her that's a way better alternative
>>
>>51139360
If you’re taking game logics out of the equation, how exactly did you seduce that this series have an illogical approach? What’s the standard? What’s the basis?

I find complaints about the JN team being so strong to be ridiculous. Unlike previous series, Ash spends his downtime training in the lab, and as we’ve seen multiple times, he’ll train all day if his Pokémon are up for it. The fact that he has this big open space to have his Pokémon go all out without any restraints has enabled him to cross boundaries he otherwise couldn’t do to things out of his control like traveling the region and not always having time to just sit down and let his Pokémon go at it. Not to mention his Pokémon have all of Goh’s Pokemon as potential training partners. His Pokémon are super strong now because majority of his time is dedicated to making them stronger. It’s not that difficult a concept to grasp
>>
>>51139348
When it became Dawn's pokémon, I don't remember an instance with him aside from his joining episode standing out in Ash's team.
>>
Plot Armor Ideas for Ash to Win:

>Cynthia doesn't bring Garchomp
>Pikanuke KO's an immune Garchomp
>Battle is a tie and a coin is flipped and Ash wins
>Cynthia dies mid-match
>The sprinklers come on
>Muh determination and verbal support saved the day!!!
>Cynthia gets distracted by Dawn in the stands (shes in her cheerleading suit), loses.


Anything else?
>>
>>51139295
Yeah but Steven's Jobbergross spent most of the match floating. The show just doesn't give a fuck about it.
>>
>>51139419
Cynthia’s Garchomp doesn’t know any Ground moves so I don’t see what it could really do to Lucario. I think it used Dig like once against Chimchar but that was it and that can easily be countered by Lucario’s Aura.

I think people are underestimating what Ash’s team can do. This is the first time they’ve all battled together in a match like this. I feel like the take down of Garchomp will be a team effort.
>>
>>51139406
>His Pokémon are super strong now because majority of his time is dedicated to making them stronger

Literally every other series did this too. Except that most of it was onscreen, and they didnt start out as expert level Pokemon, so there was a real feeling of meaningful development. The only Pokemon that can really apply to is Lucario, and a little Gengar. The rest are mostly the same as they've been since being obtained. I just dont like how this series structures its development and story arcs.

No, that defeats the whole purpose. Eevee's Z move is the "all evolutions" path that undermines Koharu's entire journey. Lana was important not because she has an Eevee, but because it's relatable to Koharu. Just like with Lillie's Vulpix, it has the ability to evolve, yet it hasn't. It's not literally about its evolutions, Eevee is an extension of Koharu's character and her indecisiveness to "evolve". Lana's Eevee sprung about a natural conversation about what it means to "stay" as an Eevee. Professor Sakuragi said it right at the end, if she comes to a crossroad, follow whichever path resonates with her. That's what makes it so beautiful. This whole time she, and we as the audience, have been seeing evolution as something concrete that has to be chosen with consideration, but "staying as an Eevee" means staying true to yourself, no matter which path you choose. Lana's is on her own path, and likewise so is Koharu's, but also everyone else's. Each Eeveelution they came across had its own story that culminated to them evolving, but their story was never about the evolution itself. The Flareon and Jolteon episode even highlights this by showing that it's not the evolution that matters, but the Eevee inside it. Koharu and Eevee's story was always about not getting lost in expectations and being true to yourself and the desires that stem from that. Even Sakuragi's story this episode was relevant. He started out young and slowly evolved into a great person fueled by the self. The story is about how if you forge your own journey your destination will come naturally. There's no need for Koharu to worry about finding a destination, and that realization opened her up to finding her own path.

well thats why you think Cynthia is going to win (and you're wrong).
>>
>>51139470
Where did I say that?
>>
>>51139458
I’m not getting this. So Eevee’s Z Move being a “all evolutions” path, meaning Koharu and Eevee basically have the capabilities and support to do anything they want, somehow goes against Koharu’s character arc? Instead she has to pick one that personally touches her instead of having the options and accessibility to chase whatever dream she wants? Isn’t that what “possibilities are endless” means?

No they literally didnt. The majority of other series had Ash walking to his next destination or spending time helping COTDs. He didnt have the free leisure time to just hang out and work with his Pokémon as often as he does in JN.

It's fascinating how this is probably the only anime where people get mad if the MC makes some progress just because they want an eternal loser to mock him while feeling superior or because it wasn't like in their head.
>>
>>51139551
The master 8 encapsulates all stages of what not to do in an animation studio 101.
>>
>>51139458
And to add because I was hitting post limit, there's also the "many reasons for evolving" talk Koharu had with her dad. Why pokemon evolve is like saying why people end up how they do. It's a combination of your experiences and desires, and pokemon having many reasons to evolve is just like how each person has their own reasons for being who they are. We often see the end results, the way a person is now, without considering the stories that led up to that point. Growing and evolving are gradual things that shape us without having us realize it. It's an important lesson for someone as young as Koharu that it doesn't happen the other way around.
>>51139481
>she has to pick one
No, that's literally the opposite of what I'm saying. People have to choose "a" path because time and growth are linear. Eevee's evolutions represent the different paths it and its trainers end up in. You can't use them as metaphors for options because they're the end result. It's more about human nature, really. If Ilima showed up with his harem Z move it would confuse Koharu and make her think that pursuing everything in the whole wide world is an achievable scenario. The metaphor would fall aprt instantly, you can't be more than one person. And "endless possibilities" refers to, again, human nature. Think of it like Koharu going to a job fair. There aren't only 8 types of jobs in the world, but a good possibility that she may end up in one under a classification from those 8. Endless possibilities means to ignore numbers, there are no paths, but a vast open field.

He's already a champion. The only higher ranks are Monarch and whatever the fuck a Pokemon Master is supposed to be. Given that the Masters Ex trailer shows Ash literally reaching the top, he's probably going to usurp Leon as the Monarch.

I get what you mean but that's still no excuse for them not giving its attacks kino animation.

For example its signature move, meteor mash. When you use it in the game you imagine it is the worst shit, literally like getting hit by meteors and destroying all surroundings in the process.

Same for bullet punch, I always imagined it would look incredibly violent and brutal animated in a battle.

tldr Metagross is supposed to be both a tank and a ruthless killing machine, commanded by a friendly gentleman

Sadly we didn't get any of that. Instead the lazy animators decided that Metagross' signature move is *TELEPORTS INCREDIBLY FAST SO YOU CAN'T HIT IT!!!!!!!*. Which left Stevenfags wondering what the fuck they were smoking

They had 25 years of experience on their back, they can stuff puffer with recaps and a good part will suck it up anyway.
They even outsources the animation to China.

I don't know much or any profession within a animation studio, but you can only pull so many excuses with that much time.

Weaker than the guy that only lost to the soon-to-be no.1 after a close match.

>Diantha Vs Leon is really a one episode battle.
Damn, I wonder how hard will Leon fuck her

>>51142306
Hopefully it is brutal. Dianthafags got way too cocky after the Lance battle.
>>
>>51142306
If it really is one episode, then I might actually buy the theory that these writers secretly hate XY kek.

I wonder how many Champion Ranked trainer will be introduced by SV game. Honestly it would have been cool if there is a champion who has the main legendary opposite of the one the player catches.

Goh is gay though so the only way she can get it is after Ash has sex with him.

Overall Lance has achieved more

>>51142368
Why is she showing us her ass? Is he drawing hentai?

>>51142306
He will have a way to counter all of her strategies and she’ll look completely powerless against him

TPCI's Pokemon main Series dub is so terrible it's the butt of jokes these days, and is still living in the shadow of the 4Kids dub from the late 1990s-early 2000s in almost every way.

Says a lot. You get what you pay for, and Pokemon Company International is **notoriously** cheap when it comes to animated products, unlike the video games where they expend nigh all their budget since 90% of the revenue is from them now.

You heard Clavell, right, in the Scarlet/Violet trailer? TPCI can't voice act for shit across almost any media (Origins is the best dub they put out in almost 15 years- the Ashime they did worse than 4Kids ever did by this point, Generations is edgelord the VA Series and people have too shit taste to realize how bad this was truly acted, Evolutions is bland, and Masters has the Ashime same shit VA work with a forgettable Brock/Misty that still fade into woodwork).

VA work and the music quality were the biggest casualties from the 4Kids Era that were lost once they let their right elapse to the Series in Animated form in late 2006:

Would Journeys have been better with Green as the female lead?

I mean not in more females.
I meant Koharu not existing in favor of pulling an known character.

Indeed, 4Kids at least took jabs at themselves sometimes: TPCI are too thin skinned to even do that.

Pretty much everyone misses Eric Stuart's James by this point (he sounds like a heaven-sent angel even at his lowest compared to Carter Cathcart's goofy, old nasal man with cold take for close to over a decade now), hates Ed Goldfarb's dub music score, and misses 4Kids' openings vs. TPCi's in particular.

The opening theme songs/intros are a huge casualty from the old days, too.

How did we go from this?

Horrible degradation.

Good summary of the two dubs, too, 4Kids dub was peak SOUL and TPCi dub is peak SOULLESS.

>>51142701
His OP is still memorable after two and a half decades, for sure.
>>
>>51142676
The current dub is shit, but I don't hate the newest opening, I'll give it that.
>>
>>51140998
I actually like Gou/Goh.
But it's confirmed that he's not in the new animation.
You will see very soon.

You will love the new animation if you like Diamond and Pearl, XY, and Sun and Moon.
It looks like an upgrade compared to 2019. Think Dragon Ball Super: Broly Goku Design.

>>51142785
I think it sounds like this, desu:

It's just so forgettable, idk, each to their own but current dub opening doesn't do it for me- I will say it's not helped by 29 seconds in length, just feels like they slapped it together last second.

If you liked Goh, you wouldn't want him to leave. What a liar you are.

Just feel like it doesn't fit for Pokemon, I guess, it's like her singing but in a bored, dull tone instead.

The Paldea region's Champion rank. Who we are told use their battles to entertain people. Leon is the closest to that right now as an entertainer who is a Champion.

TPCI doesn't give a shit about the dub beyond cash, it's gone so downhill. There's a reason almost everyone doesn't watch it anymore.
