On one hand, it doesn't feel like PM Ash deserves to win this tournament. On the other, they have absolutely built up the expectation that Ash WILL win it, so if they make Leon lose it will also be a bad writing choice for them.

So we're getting either the most underwhelming victory in the anime or yet another anticlimatic loss.

Is it true that these recaps and shitty episodes are happening because of covid outbreaks at OLM? I thought the series was produced months in advance, are we just now seeing the impacts of an outbreak that happened a few months ago?
>>
>>51143111
source?
>>
>>51143111
Most likely it's due to production problems due to writing the early SV eps an animating everything.

Clip shows, multiple breaks, etc. would not be happening otherwise. It's very unusual since no other series in its last year seemed to have these problems.
>>
>>51142843
Ironically, because They moved away from Kanto. Movie 20 and 22 did really well because Gen 1 nostalgia is still a thing. Movie 21 was Gen 2 shilling, but Johto doesn't have the pull Kanto does. Movie 23 focused on Poke Tarizan and some throwaway gen 8 mythical Pokemon.

I've seen people saying it on twitter and youtube comments, they might just be making up bullshit to defend PM

There's a lot of kids/teens on twitter who have no idea how anime production works, so they're sitting here butt-hurt about clip shows or whatever not realizing they're intended to be breaks for the animators/writers.

Is yajima the padt boogeyman? Can we blame everything bad with the series on him?
>>
>>51143180
There are plenty of people like that here too. Plus, these are the first clip shows we've gotten since DP so I understand why people are upset about it
>>
>>51143189
Also remember the AG and DP clipshows were never dubbed, so all these younger fans probably had no idea they existed since they didn't watch the Japanese eps at the time.

it's reasonable to assume the budget cuts are as a result of how bw and xy flopped. yajima had major roles in both. they also destroyed interest and made many leave the fandom.

It doesn't help that the biggest voices of the online fandom (Moot,Gryhon, Raf etc.) are pushing this and don't know what the fuck they are talking about.

Movie 20 was a ratings bomb:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AthQ5ZSHVx4

Movie 22:

https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/pokemon_the_movie_mewtwo_strikes_back_evolution (Bombed in theaters, just like M01, has an even *lower* rating than M01 on imdb, higher on RT but still a bomb fail nonetheless, and has less users who liked it than M01 on Google)

Kanto nostalgia pandering fails when you (a) in M20, have TPCI replace Japanese OST 4Kids kept in the 1998-2006 Era dub, have no Brock or Misty in either version, and use the current dub VA cast on older characters with much worse VO performances, and (b) in M22, CGI it up, still have the very subpar 2007-present dub VA cast, and the dub couldn't decide whether to copy 4Kids or the Japanese version of it, creating a Movie fans of neither would like and a mess.

M21 & 23 are the way to go, stop pandering to people who would eat up shit even if it's shit. Gen I but instead butchering childhoods is not the way to go.
>>
>>51143211
The entire budget went into the Lillie episode. Though to be fair, that WAS by far the best episode of this entire show, despite the needless presence of the autism trio.
>>
M21 is the best Pokemon movie and it's not even close.
>>
>>51143238
yajima didn't storyboard it like he did m23
>>
So the top 3 in the M8 are CLEARLY - Ash, Cynthia, Leon (with Gmax) - their exact order will be determined by the last 2 battles (semi + final)
-after that there is a gap
then the remaining 4 champions
-then gap
then Alain

How are the mid 4 ranked?
>>
>>51143220
Moot why do you push this negatvity on twitter? I'm sure you know good and well the production issues going behind the scenes is why the clip-shows, outsourced animation, etc. is happening. Instead people on twitter are going nuts based on misinformed stuff and not knowing how anime production works.

I also agree Zac and Raf and those other big youtubers are just as bad.
>>
>>51143231
Movie 20 did better then movie 21 at the box offices. In Japan, it did better then the all of the XY movies and it did better then movie 21 and 23. The TPCI dub being shit doesn't mean squat to most people. The CGI Mewtwo movie was the most popular anime movie on netflix in 2020.

>How are the mid 4 ranked?
I'd say
>Steven
>Lance
>Iris
>Diantha
The Lance vs Diantha battle and her getting swept in the upcoming Leon battle serve to prove that she was probably the weakest Champion and only won because of type advantage and catching Lance off guard with her strategies. I wouldn't be surprised if Iris has the raw power to take her down but I could also see her go down to similar strats as Lance did, so I wouldn't argue if anyone said Diantha > Iris.
>>
>>51143278
Diantha > Lance > Alain > Steven = Iris
Steven's Metagross was embarrassing and didn't get a single win.
>>
>>51143294
In Netflix India, sure, but in the in the US it was a ratings fail with M22 as was M20 just like the other two.

It does mean shit enough that a ton of the reviews on Rotten Tomatoes were talking about "poor voice acting," "James' voice," and surprisingly, some dub stans actually liked the OG dub soundtrack for it (considering M01 was the worst Movie dub in the 4Kids Era, says a lot).

I prefer the current Era to be its own thing, trying to be something it's not and never will be will only appeal to the lowest common denominator long term.

Ash controlled that match. What the fuck are you talking about? It was over for Steven the moment Fishous Rend connected and if Ash didn't stall and used z-move immediately Megagross wouldn't get his free hits.

>>51143382
>Lance
If she was stronger then the battle wouldn't have been so close, especially with her huge type advantage.

Iris's Excadrill, her original partner would OHKO M Gardie.

It did well in the US. The dub sucks, but it is not really a hang up for people when it comes to nostalgia films like movie 22.

https://www.cbr.com/netflixs-anime-audience-more-than-doubled-in-2020/

Who cares about reviews? The barometer is money. Movie 20 (and movie 22) did well financially even though they weren't very good. At the end of the day, that is all TPC cares about.

I expected it to, but without pining for the past goggles on, you can tell how bad a film it really is.

How many pokemon Metagross defeated?
>>
>>51143429
That's the problem, why the dub went to Netflix and bombed off TV is because that's all TPC cares about: money.

Quality suffered. Yes, the show is an ad for the games, but it still lost popularity for a reason over time and not just the repetition.

It says a lot people overlayed the 1999 dub over it on YouTube and it sounded better than the 2020 dub to most, though, doesn't it? And the 1998 dub was the most rewritten thing at the time, it did much better in the US than MSB-E and it still doesn't hold up today just like M22 doesn't.
>>
>>51143499
Metagross can't take down MCX either.
>>
>>51143513
We'll see if he can beat Ash and then we will know where he stands. Maybe he is only Cynthias equal at best (and thats with Gmax)
Seeing as how previous ranks dont mean shit
>>
>>51143530
Metagross losing to the combined effort of two of the future no.1 Champion's pokemon, including his ace, is more evidence for Steven >> Alain than anything you can headcanon about Alain.
>>
>>51143537
Allegedly.
>>
>>51143545
>We'll see if he can beat Ash and then we will know where he stands.
Knows where he stands lol. He is going to btfo'd Diantha who is much better then Iris, who gave Cynthia a good match. I hate how they portray Leon as above everyone, but it is obvious it is him then everyone else.
>>
>>51143554
Steven's Metagross can't even beat Dracovish, Ash's non-ace pokemon and spent most of the match in the bench.
>>
>>51143377
Who the fuck cares about the US? These movies are made for Japan, that's why they get heavily marketed theatrical releases there but just quiet drops on streaming services as if they're TV specials elsewhere.
>>
>>51143554
And Alain beat the future No.1. Who did Steven and Metagross beat?
>>
>>51142854
I like her, Koharu seems to me a kind and realistic character
>>
>>51143576
Not just Ameristan, the Western World, the popularity is in free fall for the dub here and in English speaking countries. How Pokemon is perceived in the West affects its International selling point save the games.

Pokemon is obviously best in Japanese, in any format, but just saying- the impression hurts here.
>>
>>51143563
Iris and Diantha are entirely irrelevant compared to the top 3 (Ash Leon Cynthia).
If he doesnt beat Ash, then he is ~the same level as Cynthia, and you're just in hard cope mode
And without GMax/powerspot he is weaker than both Ash & Cynthia

>Diantha who is much better then Iris
headcanon

Anyway, the question was about ranking the other 5
>>
>>51143582
>And Alain beat the future No.1.
XY Ash and jobberfrog were E4 level at best
>>
>>51143571
>spent most of the match in the bench
Yeah, when he realized Ash had a strat to counter his main mon he decided to save him for last when all of his other pokemon weaken all of Ash's. It was a good plan and the only reason it didn't work is because he had no way of knowing the Z-move could be redirected and I wager would have won if he kept his distance and continued to dodge.
>>51143582
>And Alain beat the future No.1.

Not really. The anime played a huge role in Pokemania back in the day. However, these days the driving force for Pokemon is GO.
>>
>>51143606
Most westfags think Mewtwo Returns is a movie. The distinction between movie and TV special mostly doesn't exist in the western fandom, to them a movie is "an episode that's a bit longer and can be skipped without it influencing the plot". They never see the actual marketing these things get and a lot of them probably have no idea they were intended for theaters to begin with.
>>
>>51143613
Saying Dianthia is better then Iris is headcanon. But Leon being weaker then Ash/Cynthia without gmax isn't? Lol fuck off Cynthia fag.

>>
>>51143638
>But Leon being weaker then Ash/Cynthia without gmax isn't?
He will obviously need his Gmax to be able to give Ash a close fight (regardless if he wins or not)
Outside Galar he becomes weaker, while Ash/Cynthia lose nothing (especially Cynthia, since 1 of Ashes gimmicks at least needs a powerspot). GMax is a HUGE boost

Are you in denial? Lol go complain to OLM why they didnt give him a Mega
>>
>>51143629
Steven knew he fucked up when Fishous Rend hit Metagross FIRST despite being faster than Vish so he withdrew it because Dracovish is tougher than it looks and even if he hypothetically beat Dracovish Metagross would be too tired to keep up and lose to Gengar.
Zero wins.

I love when Cynthiafags just ignore the show. Leon dusted Alain' with just base Zard and he also beat Flint fairly easy without any gimmicks. I am sorry they aren't treating your waifu as the strongest battler in the series, she will just have to settle for being second (and later third....)

That's because Ash knew what Steven was up to and order the attack first, and that's literally how it works in the anime.
>even if he hypothetically beat Dracovish Metagross would be too tired to keep up and lose to Gengar.
Yeah, that's kinda the point of him saving it for the end when all of Ash mons were revealed and KO'd or tired.
>>
>>51143738
False, his battle vs Flint asted longer - there were cut outs of unknown timeframe while the scene switched back to Ash several times. Flint held out a decent amount of time vs him (and certainly way longer than Alain kek)
Regardless, if he doesnt beat Ash, then he will only be ~Cynthias tier (and weaker outside of Galar, which you hate to hear)
So just wait for the PWC to end instead of chimping out now

It's part of the game, Ash outplayed him and Metagross took heavy damage from the very beginning Steven had to switch it. Not Ash's fault he saw right through him. Diantha also did something like Ash when she predicted Lance would do a risky attack to clutch a win after d-max ends and countered him.

Of course, but Steven switching Gross out and saving him for the end was the objectively best decision on his part because it had the speed and calculating power to dodge the 10MVT and the only reason it still got hit was because Steven got ahead of himself and went for the attack instead of keeping his distance and continuing to dodge.
In the end, Steven lost to himself more than he did to Ash.

Anon if you think beating a mon with one foot in the grave is a bigger feat than tanking a Strong Jaw Fishous Rend and the Pika Z-move and still surviving, then I don't know what to tell you. Actually, think of it this way, Steven's Gross could have won against the Vish but Steven knew that would cause his main mon to needlessly suffer damage in doing so, so he saved him for the last battle, it's the reason why Steven saw all three of his opponent's mons while Alain didn't.

I'm not a Cynthiafag, if anything my question stands in opposition of Cynthiafags, you stupid bitch. My question is, WHY is it such a problem for a Meowth to be that strong?

I wouldn't give a fuck if Meowth bent Garchomp over and fucked it, it doesn't need to be explained. If the Meowth shows itself to be that strong, then that's how it is.

Doesn't change the fact that they still wrote that Alain lost pathetically without even seeing Leon's third mon, while Steven did in a battle with Leon's equal.
>>
>>51144235
You’re a coping retard. Gyarados lost to Gourgeist literally in 2 minutes. You thinking that that’s insignificant because Diantha said if she didn’t use strategy she would’ve lost is embarrassing cope. She’s a Champion, why would she not use some type of strategy in her battle? Lance lost because he didn’t use strategy and just went in brute force and proceeded got dabbed on. Which is why he just recently became champion unlike the rest of the Champions in the M8. He’s literally Jobber, the Jobber Champion of the group if you will, tied with Alain for being the absolute worst fucking trainer in the Masters 8. He lost with a type advantage, TWICE. He’s a shitter and you being an angry incel about Diantha will never change that.
>>
>>51144235

So instead of being a retard and going in without any plan, she created a defensive shield to protect her Pokémon, while her opponent didn’t. Do you not see how hilariously bad that looks for Lance?
>>
>>51143995
I'm not so sure about that. Alain was clearly on the losing end but his Mega Charizard could still keep pace with Steven's Mega Metagross. Comparatively Leon's Base Charizard raped Alain's Mega Charizard like a bitch.

I'd argue Leon w/o GMax would still be relative to Steven.

But you know what matters the most? The actual fight and battle narrative of Masters 8. In the end Lance's ace Dragonite got a win and more screentime than Steven's Jobbergross. It was the same Dragonite who captured Red Gyarados as well.

They would have had Gyarados be Lance's final Pokemon if it was his ace. I have no dog in this fight, but the staff obviously treated Dragonite as the stronger Pokemon. Gyarados being promoted as Lance's ace seems to be a marketing decision since Dragonite was shilled through Ash already. All and all, this could have been avoided if they weren't hellbent on giving Ash some betrayal fanfic team.

No she didn’t, again this is you coping. She said that if she didn’t have the barriers she would’ve had a hard time, but she still had Gardevoir undamaged sitting on the sidelines at that point. Gardevoir was more than capable of sweeping the rest of Lance’s team, because now they all would’ve been at a disadvantage against it type wise. Gyarados was now Ghost-type, so it would’ve been at the leisure of Gardevoir’s Shadow Ball. She didn’t utilize any of the barriers with Gardevoir, she completely swept Lance after it entered the field.

Assuming Ash's ace-in-the-hole for Cynthia is Mega Lucario, this battle is easily in his favour. Logically Dragonite and Dracovish are going to be the jobbers of the match because Multiscale and Fishious Rend become less useful the longer a fight goes on. So Sirfetch'd and Gengar should see some more use here. Pikachu will also probably be less useful because Cynthia has at least two Ground types and Ash has no hazards around the field (like water) to use on them.

So Lucario, Sirfetch'd and Gengar are the keys.
>Gengar
Has Will-O-Wisp to weaken Cynthia's pokemon over a long battle. Cursed Body enables it to disable Cynthia's moves. Dazzling Gleam can fuck up Kommo-o and Garchomp and Sludge Bomb can inflict poison. So Poison + Burn mixed with Cursed Body to disrupt and weaken her over the battle.
>Sirfetch'd
Is more limited overall with straight forward moves. But since they are releasing Ash's team in SwSh they have to pick an ability for him. Either he gets Steadfast to get faster every time he flinches or he gets Scrappy so he can hit Ghost types with his fighting moves. I don't think they're going to have Cynthia's Spiritomb so my money is on Steadfast. So while he's straight forward he will get faster over the battle.
>Lucario
The entire reason his Lucario would be his ace is simple. Reversal. If Ash is struggling earlier on in the battle then he needs his pokemon like Gengar to weaken Cynthia over time but Reversal enables Lucario to become an insanely dangerous threat the more hits he takes without going down.

Ash winning this is going to be all about a snowball effect. He needs to punish Cynthia the longer she fails to take him out. Reversal + Poison + Burn + Cursed Body can fuck her over.
>>
>>51144445
>How was he supposed to plan around Ash knowing exactly what he was going to do
By not being an overconfident retard. He didn't Mega evo Metagross immediately because he was underestimating Ash.
>Still doesn't change the way they deliberately chose to go about doing it and that Steven went pretty even with the new no.1 while Alain got gutted
Except Ash is the protagonist and Leon is the final boss of this current arc whom they are saving for Ash. Totally the same thing retard.
>>
>>51144508
Unrelated to the discussion in general, but I suspect the decision to have the masters 8 be the champions was made relatively late. Ash had already been given a Dragonite by then, Iris had hers as a memorable mon and it's also too closely associated with Lance to remove, so no way out of having three Dragonites.
>>
>>51144508
Lance's Dragonite only showed up against Diantha and Iris' Dragonite easily jobbed.

We didn’t get to see Allister battle at all so we don’t know if he has one or not.
>Bea doesn't have Sirfetch
Sirfetch’d isn’t even one of Bea’s main Pokémon. Her main three in the Gstar Tournament are Hawlucha, Falinks, and Machamp.
>and it looks like Cynthia won't have a Lucario
Yet we saw Korrina’s and Gurkinn’s multiple times in JN. So again this doesn’t make any sense.

Iris having Haxorus didn’t stop them from shilling Iris with Dragonite in some of the merch or posters. So Lance having Gyarados wouldn’t keep them from showing off his Dragonite. This sounds like cope.

Literally, how does that contradict the fact that Leon shitstomped Alain while Steven had a relatively even battle with Ash? And even if Ash loses by a hair to Leon it would still be proof that Steven > Alain.
>>
>>51144457
You fucking dumbass, YOU said Wallace was stronger than Steven before XY. How the fuck would you know that if they never battled before then? When Steven first appeared he was just looking for a Fire Stone but was said to be a strong trainer, how in the world did you deduce that Wallace was stronger than him just because he was Champion and Steven wasn’t when Steven had nothing to do with the League and battling when he first debuted?

Lance and Iris got elimated and Ash didn't use his Dragonite in the first round.

They were integrated to the plot because of Mega Lucario.
>Iris having Haxorus didn’t stop them from shilling Iris with Dragonite in some of the merch or posters. So Lance having Gyarados wouldn’t keep them from showing off his Dragonite
That's exactly the reason why Lance's Dragonite got shafted.
>This sounds like cope
I'm not the one who keeps ignoring the most important thing. Lance 3v3 fight against Diantha. I bet I've been arguing with the same retarded Steventranny from yesterday. Dilate.
>>
>>51144560
Obviously Paul knows better than Lance himself
>>
>>51144661
>Because they can't remove them.
So if there is three Dragonite in the tournament why would they choose to market instead Gyarados who only had 2 minutes of screentime in the tournament? Why would they call that Pokémon Lance’s ace?
>He doesn't show off g-max Gengar because of Ash. They anime tries to avoid overlaps when it can.
We’ve literally gotten several overlaps in this saga alone. Alain, Leon, and Ash with Charizard. Iris, Lance, and Ash with Dragonite. Ash, Korrina, and Gurrkin for Lucario. Koharu and Lana for Eevee. Volkner and Paul with Electivire. Volkner and Clemont with Luxray. Goh and Raihan with Flygon. Do I keep going?
>It is her partner mon in Master
Masters =/= anime.
>Yeah, for ME Lucario storyline
What did Gurrkin’s Lucario have to do with Ash’s Lucario’s story?
>>
>>51144685
>How do you know that?
Anon, in the battle with Dragonite, Gardie was being buffeted by Hail since the first turn Dragonite Dynamaxed, then got hit by a Max Strike, by the logic of M8 battles if it got git by the Hyper Beam in the end it would have been lights out like Lance planed.

Steven fanboys are brainlets. They're just trying to save face for him and his jobbergross.

This.

>>51142829
Sakuragi-san, why didn't you tell your daughter about G-Max Eevee?
>>
>>51144619
We're just going back and forth but it doesn't the fact Steven and his Metagross have zero wins.
Alain > Steven
>>
>>51144560
Surely they would’ve paired them together then instead of being the only exception in the Masters 8, right?
>>
No matter what side you are it doesn’t change the fact that Iris and Lance lost twice in the PWC and therefore are the weakest trainers. Even Alain jobbing to Leon in 8 minutes isn’t that bad compared to them.
>>
>>51144797
doesn't change the fact*
>>
>>51144797
Steven did better against the new number 1 trainer than Alain did with the new number 2. You're full of shit if you think Charizard beating a damaged Rillaboom takes precedent over the outcome of the entire battles.

Because they needed something to make Lance stand out more and they couldn't use Dragonite since it was shilled heavily in the show by Ash. They wanted each M8 participants partner mon to feel unique. For example, even though Leon and Alain both of Zard, most of the merchandise with Alain is with X, while Leon usually has base Zard or G-Max. They couldn't do that with Dragonite.

Most of these overlaps barley play a huge role in the story. Like it is easy to still show Ash's Zard because it isn' going to be relevant in the tournament. Hell, I would argue one reason they even gave Ash Dragonite was because they didn't want him to use Charizard because of Leon. >>51144754

That KenzeyEevee guy has really been spamming the hell out of serebii, I'll agree. I don't know why Adamant doesn't ban him, he adds nothing to the threads. He's now complaining Ash/Cynthia might be 3 episodes when before he was complaining it was only 1 episode.

Easily the most annoying guy on serebii right now.

KenzeyEevee is like a kid who means well, but he's so damn annoying and repeats himself over and over jumping to the worst possible conclusion every time some new title for the anime is announced. He would be like that annoying kid in school in real life who didn't know when to shut up.

The previous magazine showed Ash/Go implying a Project Mew mission was happening after the semi-finals, so it seems realistic enough.
>>
>>51145073
I swear someone on /vp/ made up a fake episode title that stayed on Bulbapedo for weeks too. Some Ash VS Iris title from back when it had been confirmed Iris was returning but no other details were known, including which episode it was happening in.
>>
Loot at it this way. If it weren't for Koharu getting an Eevee, Erika and Serena wouldn't have returned.

It didn't imply shit beyond the fact that we're not done with Project Mew yet, which is obvious.

I didn't believe that I could hate Koharu more than I already did, but you proved me wrong, anon.

Replace Serena with Sylveon.

Please don't make me hate Sylveon too, like you made me hate Dawn and Korrina.

>>51145137
Why would you hate Sylveon, it's the only thing that's relevant about Serena.

>>51145160
Because you want me to replace Serena with Sylveon. Simple as that.

I mean, the show did that itself, so it would only make sense here as well.

Still, thematically speaking Sylveon would be more relevant than Serena there, so...

I don't even care, I wanna show who gave the gifts. So I'm sticking with Serena, so screw you Serena hater.

You know I just realized since I don't really play the games anymore, the anime skipping many of those pokémon partially made me completely forget a lot of those exist.

Nope, sticking with Serena.

Are Diantha and Leon the most popular champions according to the lore? Diantha is a famous actress while Leon is literal superstar where even Alolans knew him as well meanwhile Koharu doesn't even know who Cynthia is when they first met.

The fact that you're trying to make the claim the champion isnt the strongest when even your favorite jobber champion substantiates the claim is sad. Not surprised though, all Stevenfags can do is deflect.
>>
>>51145312
Mainly because too many people hate Serena, manly for having unrealistic expectations when everything about Serena in the anime has been already planned in advance. The romance? Already planned. The contests? Already planned. Finding what you wanna do with your life? Already planned, and this one is realistic in real life.
>>
Ddin't Wallace tell Ash he's Steven's equal in terms of strength?

>>51145313
Not the anon but yeah duh the champion is the strongest trainer in the region, but when we know that region has had multiple champions then the strongest one is the one who wasn’t beaten. Wallace wasn’t stronger than Steven because they hadn’t battled yet and when they eventually did Steven beat him therefore meaning Steven was actually the stronger trainer. Steven can say he is the strongest in Hoenn because there is now no other trainer in Hoenn that is capable of defeating him. It’s really not that hard to understand.
