Happy. The reason he was all over girls was because he was obsessed with providing a mother figure for his dozen siblings whom he'd already taken on the father figure role for. Dude is going to take her home, bring the rest of his siblings up with a mom in the house, and then crank out babies of his own like a Catholic commiting genetic conquista of the archipelago. For whom he will be the best dad in Kanto.

Good end.

>For the first time in anime history, Ash has also made it to the finals

>He's beaten his opponent before, and his opponent has shown clear disinterest in participating anyways

>It's a two episode 6v6 split

<Fight Part 1

>Pickastu beat a fucking Tyrannitar; Ash's Noivern loses to a Weavile; Ash's Hawlucha beats the Weavile and loses to a Bisharp. Talonflame and Unefesant tie. Pikastu then solos a Metagross meaning Pikastu has literally soloed two psudeolegendaries at general type disadvantage

>Throughout there have numerous stupid decisions on Ash's part, but he's overall he's clearly winning

>Ash currently has what's left of Pikastu, Goodra (psudeolegendary of the region) and his trump card Greninja with an ultrastu forme

>Enemy has a weakened Bisharp and a Charizard

>For all intents and purposes, Ash has this in the bag

>Fans are hyped; not even Jessi and James could lose this matchup

<<<Fight Part 2

>Charizard beats what's left of Pikastu, but is visibly weakened from the trade

>Bisharp just beats the Goodra and is easily cleaned up by the Greninja (note that during this match Goodra uses nnumerous NVE moves)

>Final fight. Greninja vs Charizard; each with Saiyan formes (Stu Ash Greninja vs Mega Charizard X).

>Type matchup is Water/Dark vs Fire/Dragon

>Charizard is already weakened, Greninja has resistance to Fire

>It's the literal Starter triangle

>His loli freind says he's gotta win

>Ash loses a battle that a 4 year old could have won

>He had 2 Gary Stu's on his team; versus an opponent who didn't give a shit-pic related is his fucking face recieving it

>And due to the new games wanting new gimmicks, the league format is completely different

>Ash has, and likely will never win an original-format league

Actually, yeah. The series is meant to reflect the japanese school year, but they fucked up the pacing in the seasons, every time a new generation starts it's the start of a new School Year, but since the series dragged on so long, and for so many seasons, the years started adding up. Some autists did the math, and he's like 19 according to how the seasons and dates changed through the series.

Canonically in the new series he's like 13-14 I think they said, so it's more like they retconned everything up to Sun/Moon to take place in a 3-4 year period, and from here on out the seasons are going to take place under a much shorter time-period, like a season of Sun/Moon is a single school term or semester.

You know what I really want? A show that's actually based on the Pokemon videogames. Not so meta that they talk about levels, xp, and pp, but one that takes a game's storyline from the player's perspective and faithfully translates it across 40-50 episodes. Show our guy leaving home for the first time, catching pokemon, becoming best friends with his starter, fighting rivals, challenging gyms, taking down bad guys, and pushing through the grinder that is the Elite 4 until he faces off against his rival to become Champion. Maybe throw in a love interest and a Legendary encounter somewhere along the way, but then the series is over and you can do it again with different characters from a different game, and drop occasional references to old shows to tie the Pokemon world together.

The original Pokemon anime was close to the mark, but spun it's wheels a lot and eventually locked Ash in purgatory instead of having him win the league. The 4-part Mega Evolution miniseries did it better, but was just a highlight reel from the journey they presented instead of being a complete story.

Hardly. Red beats Giovanni, and then the story moves on to be about Gold and Silver, with Red, Blue, and Yellow recurring. The entire thing is a continuous series about each of the game protagonists, each story overlapping with the next generation. It's also pretty fucking dark.

That's what the original pokemon anime with Ash was supposed to be back in the 90s. It bombed so hard that I'm pretty sure the original American adaptation earned them more revenue.

Forgot the part where it was Ash that had to convince him to even take part in the League Finals after Ash beat him.

If Ash had just let him live his travelling life with the loli, he wouldn't have been in the finals in the first place and Ash would have had an easier opponent in the Grand Finals.


 No.896938

I think you have some wires crossed. The "original pokemon anime" is the Indigo League which is exactly the same anime that everyone is familiar with and that was brought overseas, with fairly minimal localization (a few filler episodes cut due to content + a few flubbed translations to contextualize jokes does not a revision make). It was wildly successful in both America and Japan; the Japanese wiki page cites regular ratings up to and around 17% which is absolutely fucking insane. While Japan is a small country, it must be said that things like sportsball usually get up to about 10% at most outside of very important events despite being popular and reliable in the US. It was intended to be a 1-season show but that premise was abandoned when they started raking in cash, which helped launch the translation. They had a winner.

The show you may be thinking of is Yu-Gi-Oh! 98 which launched at around the same time. While it was a much more loyal adaption that Duel Monsters, it wasn't really all that consistent with the manga, but it's a popular show that was adapted in the 90s and bombed with a sequel that was later translated like you're describing. On that note, adapting the early Yu-Gi-Oh manga at all is really risky since it's so fucked up and off-beat. It isn't until the author reels back their fantasies and characters like Shadi pop up that things start feeling even slightly like a Shonen.

Electric does regular damage to Rock and Steel. First is easily mistakable since you don't really get any Rock pokémon that isn't half-Ground used until late GSC (and with the level gap you go once you reach Kanto you won't even notice).

Electric is fine against those typings, but both can use earthquake, and tyranitar combines a high special defense with sandstorm's (provided by sand stream ability) specdef boost to deal with special attacks, and metagross' naturally high defense deals with physical attacks.

In the game, exploring her room gave this feel of "I've never gotten fucked and I've made peace with the fact that I never will".
