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.
I thank you all for your time here, even if there wasn't much going on. But now it's time to move on...
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.
ShiningStarlia: I absolutely have no idea how anyone draws the conclusion that it's bringing forth the Apocalypse. Or a Japanese cartoon show having characters use different forms of Japanese dialect and accents to fit their different cultures is the worst thing ever.
Jun 22, 2019 19:24:41 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Either way, it's over with, and tomorrow's episode is something more plot before the league episodes start up. Can focus on that instead of losing one's mind over a forgettable filler episode.

Donkarasu: Sorry, I need to say this; When you posted those other forum comments, Ryu, it's clear you were reading what you wanted to read and took me saying that you shouldn't act like your life was ruined by this episode as me saying you shouldn't like it at all.
Jun 24, 2019 4:32:42 GMT -4
Donkarasu: This is why I got so pissed off at you, because you purposely twisted what I had said. In fact, a majority of those comments you posted basically had the correct way to dislike this; calling it dumb or annoying, but without any of all the unnecessary rage.
Jun 24, 2019 4:39:48 GMT -4
Donkarasu: I listened to the full version of the remake for Type: Wild and I found Shōko Nakagawa did a great job.
Jun 25, 2019 12:40:48 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Also way before that (like last week) I heard the remake of Together With The Wind, it was good too.
Jun 25, 2019 12:42:09 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Excellent. I'll get to hearing it whenever I get the chance to.
Jun 25, 2019 16:43:30 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Goodness gracias that type wild remix was amazing! I love how so full of energy it is!
Jul 8, 2019 17:07:22 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Hah, I can't get over how good the Alolan remixed Type: Wild is. I remember when it played during Infernape vs Electivire; if this song got remixed, we're due for something amazingly good and fun. Can't wait!
Jul 9, 2019 11:53:30 GMT -4
Donkarasu: I forgot to post the magazine scan and translation for the episode that aired yesterday... Oh well.
Jul 15, 2019 5:35:27 GMT -4
Donkarasu: I had no idea this forum had a block button which hides posts that you can open to see.
Jul 15, 2019 18:12:13 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Huh really. Anyway, enjoyed the newest episode. Ash's ironic tobias moment done accidentally and Mallow & Lana's clash.
Jul 15, 2019 22:01:52 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Rowlet in that Decidueye costume is extremely adorable
Jul 28, 2019 17:04:34 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: You know, THAT was probably the anime's biggest fake-out that I've ever seen and made me go "Wait, what?!" for a couple of minutes until everything was cleared up.
Aug 4, 2019 20:46:02 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: I find it so poetically ironic that even its been weeks after that bait and switch fake-out with Rowlet falling asleep...I still see some circle jerking around a few other boards.
Aug 24, 2019 19:26:39 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: For all the fire that 2016's Kalos League failure drew for Ash losing it down to the wire...never in my wildist imagination would I ever see parts of a community screaming so violently lividly that he should've lost instead.
Aug 24, 2019 19:27:39 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Whether or not the joke was in good taste is up for debate, though I find it quirky and humorous, I wouldn't think people would get this levels of upset.
Aug 24, 2019 19:28:20 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Saw the incoming upcoming anime episode clip and a certain old friend we've long missed makes their return! I'm so darn excited!
Sept 20, 2019 22:22:02 GMT -4
Donkarasu: I usually post full summaries for next week's Pokémon episodes on Monday, because that's when the previews show up on YouTube. But this time I decided to post it on the day it was revealed, seeing as that was the ONLY summary for the episode.
