I like variety in Pokémon's personalities, I think if they all behaved in a similar way it would be/get boring. Plus it makes me view the Pokémon in different ways.
On topic, as I'm in the UK I've been seeing the dub episodes before anyone who lives in the US (and I can watch them legally online on ITV Player if I miss it on TV). I'm tempted to talk about one of these episodes, but I have to wait until you've all seen it and the guide is up, if I was good at writing I could have done it.
The latest episode that aired in the UK, on CITV, at Sunday 29th June, was "To Find a Fairy Flower!" (the Flabébé episode) which will be aired in the US, on CN, at 19th July. The UK is two episodes ahead of America, but once this season is finished CITV will start it back from the beginning and America will be first again.
Say, if that Bonnie filler's the episode about Flabébé, If you don't mind,I could take it off your hands. I like Flabébé, it's evolutionary line is one of my favorite Gen VI Pokémon.
Also, Going for the Gold was a boring episode, so I'd like a mulligan.
Well, I can handle it, even though I think that it is just as boring as the "Going For The Gold!" episode. But, if you really want it, go ahead, be my guest. I do not mind at all. Also, if you decide to write a guide for it, watch out for the pedo man
Sorry for bringing ( )this back up, but I also want to add the reason why it's stupid to think Iris wasn't close to Ash and Cilan just because she gets annoyed with them, calling Ash a kid and Cilan a pain, is because it's a common thing in anime to have that one friend who gets annoyed with the stupid things their friends do. Heck some of them even hit their friends if they do anything stupid (like Nami in One Piece or Sakura in Naruto) but it's clearly shown they are still friends - fact; the Straw Hat Pirates are as close as family - which is exactly the same with Iris (who's annoyance is mild compared to characters in most other animes).
Friends fight, they get annoyed with each other, but in the end they all still care. And if a silly argument breaks them apart it doesn't take them long to regret it.
The thing is, I never said wrote that Iris was not friendly to Ash and Cilan. Instead, I believe they were close to each other, and there were times that Iris went to a great extent in order to cheer for Ash (Virbank Gym, anyone?). After all, there is a difference between hostile and least friendly/most distant. I know that there have been many conflicts among the twerps, mainly between Ash and the girls - especially Misty, but, come on! This feels different! Iris went as far as abandoning her friends in the middle of nowhere and leaving everything behind, over a slight misunderstanding! Heck, if it had not rained, she would have probably left the gang for good. On the other hand, the one time Misty ran off in frustration, was because Ash was being a total dick to her (unintentionally), like everything they had been through meant nothing to him. Even then, she just needed some time alone, and she did not think about kissing their asses goodbye (she did not even take her bike with her ).
I repeat: Iris was by no means unfriendly and hostile towards her friends. It just felt that she was the most distant compared to the other twerps.
the Zorua you get that belonged to N (which also had a good nature and an almost perfect IV spread)
I have played Black 2, and, after doing some research, I came to the conclusion that N's Zorua is always a Hasty nature with 30 IVs in every stat (with the perfect being 31), which leads to Hidden Power Fighting with 70 base power.
Now, about Lucario. In my opinion, Lucario is a pretty cool Pokemon all around, and, most importantly, deserves all the fame it can get, unlike Charizard, who, until recently, got most if not all of its fame thanks to its design. Charizard has always been overrated, and the heart of the "lol u r a 'zard n00b, get gud" joke. Lucario, on the other hand, has amazing potential, and has been a pretty dependable and solid Pokemon, ever since its debut. It also has amazing personality characteristics, and this is why it feels awkward to me when I see a cheerful Lucario, like Korrina's. It is just like Mewtwo in Pokemon Amie! Like Don said, Lucario has had more than enough screentime so far, and this is why it would not be exactly great if Ash got one (Charizard and Pikachu are too much for him, anyway).
Zoroark's turn. I like everything about Zoroark, except for its lipstick. It has a great design, well-rounded stats, a nice Dark typing (Dark types really tend to get into me), an awesome movepool, and a trollish unique ability, which, like Die Lobsterguy said, is hindered by Team Preview. Fucking Team Preview, why did they have to add it? In my opinion, this is bullshit. Unfortunately, unlike Lucario, who shared a similar concept with it, Zoroark did not get the attention it deserved. It had a very limited distribution in Black and White, and, by the time Black and White 2 came out, the Generation had already come close to its end. The anime also left you wanting more of Zoroark.
Last, I noticed that nobody has called dibs on the "Breaking Titles at the Chateau!" episode! Does anyone want it, or shall I handle it myself?

Oh yeah, I noticed it in the last few episodes. It's kinda cute actually. Still, I hate how they change some of the most epic background music during battles, mainly Lysandre's theme. Ash and Grant's battle in the dub sounded much less epic without it.

So, who was in charge of writing the next guide? The Gym Battle episode was awesome, I'd like to discuss it soon in its own thread. We're also still missing a guide for the Battle Chateau episode as well.

Hey guys just wanted to post and apologize that I haven't put last week's episode up yet. I won't bore you with the details but basically the universe decided to give me the busiest schedule this week. I feel especially shitty about this since I promised the last time this happened that it wouldn't happen again, but I'll do my best to get it up by late Sunday.
Also haha am I up for those next five episodes already? Sheeeeeeeeiiiit.
Donkarasu: Complaining about TPCI skipping SM064 means they also watch the dub version or they are people who only watch the dub, but are aware of every episode when they air in Japan and thus where wanting to see this episode dubbed and got upset it was banned.
Mar 26, 2019 3:26:04 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Yes, there where people who only watched the original complained about it too, but they're just a part of it.
Mar 26, 2019 17:37:01 GMT -4
Donkarasu: So I understand going against those who made something controversial or are horrible people, but there's no justifying doing it to a good person who's work is innocent simply because you don't like it. You can hate the work without insulting the creator.
Mar 26, 2019 19:13:53 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: And I'll add on that just because one group is loud and pointlessly angry doesn't mean you have to stoop to their level to counter it.
Mar 26, 2019 23:23:44 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Agreed, it's better to just ignore the criticism than letting it get to you. And this also leads to people trying to force new viewers not to watch a certain version of a show simply because they don't like it. Fuck off and let folks decide for themselves.

pkfan: Hey guys I'm planning on doing a Pokemon crossover story with Deadpool, due to the 'Detective Pikach' movie coming out and I was wandering if you guys would have any suggestions for me to use in the story.
Mar 28, 2019 20:41:14 GMT -4
pkfan: I mean first off I am going to have Wade completely destroy the fourth wall, and the stuff he's going to say about the franchise and the fanbase as a whole, trust me nothing will be off limits. The title is going to be called 'Alola to The Merc' so yeah.
Mar 28, 2019 20:43:31 GMT -4
pkfan: like I said I'm open to any ideas for the story.
Mar 28, 2019 20:44:00 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Well we haven't really ever covered fanfiction here, but I say that if you have an idea you wanna use, then by all means go for it. Though I say try not to have the satire overtake the plot, it should be used as a supplement after all.
Mar 29, 2019 9:00:54 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Though also you should make sure to post it there instead of here if you do write it out.
Mar 29, 2019 9:01:45 GMT -4
pkfan: Oh trust me I'm going to post it there and as for plot... no comment on that one.
Mar 31, 2019 21:30:07 GMT -4
Donkarasu: People can hate silly things without acting like they are offended by it. It's not that hard.

ShiningStarlia: The flaws of XY and XYZ were many, and there's too many to count. The whole reason I believe that transformation exists is because they had recently used the Ash's Charizard card and he had no mega-capable Pokemon on him, and generation 6's gimmick was
Apr 1, 2019 23:27:34 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: super saiyan transformations, and Greninja was popular (Heck I like the frog and his transformation still; characters and mon's can't decide to be overwhelmingly popular) enough that the writer's be like "Lol, we dun goofed. Gen 7 is coming and we
Apr 1, 2019 23:28:45 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: "Fiddled around procrastinating long enough. We write ourselves into a corner so just give the Frog super saiyan powers and lets wrap this up quickly so we can move onto gen 7."
Apr 1, 2019 23:29:55 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Was more of a major pacing issue and they learned their lessons with the Sun and Moon anime. I can only hope that they don't drop the ball now and honestly have the audience feel like there has been true progression on Ash's journey by the end of it.
Apr 1, 2019 23:32:17 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: I have to say, the Bewear Kite comedy in the most recent episode was pure gold!
Apr 15, 2019 12:07:19 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: You know, I love the clever nod to the games where Ryuki mentions the problems with his baby-like face which is why he hides it the way like we see. However, while it isn't really brought up here, the way his actual eyes are shown does show that youthful
