    Well Serena's role is confirmed as a fanservice idol oriented character.

    Serena in fanservice outfit and her pokemon with ribbons in its ears.
     
  3. Again...what's so fanservice-y about dressing up? I've looked it up, and I can definitely say the term's being misused.

    On-topic, at least it looks like Serena's finally doing something. Probably not the thing I expected, but I'm no longer deterred. I probably should've expected it a while ago. :p

    She's literally posing in a fanservice doll outfit with her Pokemon.

    I guess instead of battling she will be a fashion model.

    Dawn did it all the time, does that make her one?

    The entire thing is to appeal to viewers who want to see her in "cute" costumes. Or in other words, fanservice. Dawn's cheerleading outfit was the exact same thing.

    Yeah, uh, actually, it does. That's the entire reason of doing costumes.

    Thanks for helping me realize that Serena really is just a shallow Dawn clone now that we know this, though.

    Dawn wore dresses in Contests. Her other outfits were fanservice but they were used for one-off events.

    This looks to be the first confirmation of Serena's goal, a fashion supermodel posing her body and pokemon for the audience. Make of that what you will and let tumblr explore with the news. I'd love to see the reactions.

    So Serena is going to dress up in a costume. Is this what her character has been leading up to? Good grief. And here I thought she might actually get a decent development episode.

    This is definitely fanservice. I'm screaming.
     
  10. Well, apparently my source is giving a rather...intense definition for "fanservice", but if you say so.

    Anyway, I can sense dissatisfaction headed this thread's way...

    Well it was obvious from day one due to the fashion stuff on her profile. She's just going to pose in outfits for the viewers. She's a supermodel.

    Blue Saturday too fly

    I'm just glad Serena's getting focus! Hopefully Fennekin battles! I bet this is where that Fennekin jumping in her arms dirty scene came from! She'll be forced to get her hands dirty and fight, can't wait.

    I think my main issue is that right across that imagine you can see Ash in a very elegant and dignified outfit, it's quite a difference.

    But again, people sort of forget that Dawn did the same thing by wearing a goofy Piplup outfit (wasn't really fan service-y in the slightest though as it was more silly)>

    Fennekin looks kinda creepy in that image... like the jaw is dislodged or something

    Battle Chateau... All of the participants dress up apparently

    Dawn's Piplup outfit was in a dream and Serena's outfit is showing a lot of skin. Tiny skirt and a belly shirt. Not to mention all pink.

    What implies that there's a battle here though? This seems like a fan service episode where Serena gets on TV and has to wear an outfit. It doesn't scream "battle episode" imo.

    The Great Butler Hush, keep it down

    Since when do you need decent development for a character you're just going to shove into an obviously fetishized fox costume?

    Seriously, does nobody remember back when Movie 13 was new and Zorua kept turning into Dawn with a tail? Have you all forgotten how the fandom reacted to that?

    I couldn't even make out the skin until you said it was there.

    Let's see how much people try to deny she's here for fanservice now. An obvious fetish costume. Disgusting.

    Well, at least this confirms Fenniken is a girl(as if there was ever any doubt xD).
     
  19. *gasp*

    I think this could be what Serena's goal might be! An ACTRESS!

    Think about it, with Diantha also appearing, presumably sometime before or even during this episode, this would probably inspire Serena to become an actress herself!

    Honestly, I'm not sure about everyone else, but I'll personally be excited if Serena's goal is to be an actress. I know it's not that battle-oriented, but...I don't know, it just feels like something I can be okay with. Seriously, I'm liking it. Maybe this is why Serena's getting her current treatment?

    Hey...when you've gotta an oddly feminine confirmed male Leavanny, anything is possible :p
