Plotting Negative Values in a Loop

Trying to plot values for a robot gripper using a for loop with a pause to get a graph that moves. Was just wondering why I can't plot these negative values.
The code used to plot was:
figure(3)
hold on
for i = 0:0.5:10
plot(x(i), y_fit(i))
pause(0.5)
hold off
end
The variables used were:
L = 1;
T = [0 2 5 8 10];
Angle = [-45 13 45 50 60];
Angle2 = [45 41 69 106 120];
a = polyfit(T, Angle, 3);
b = polyfit(T, Angle2, 3);
T = 0:0.5:10;
x = L*(cos(theta_Angle)) + L*cos((theta_Angle2));
y = L*(sin(theta_Angle)) + L*(sin(theta_Angle2));
p = polyfit(x, y, 3);
y_fit = polyval(p, x);
theta_Angle = (a(1)*(T.^3))+(a(2)*(T.^2))+(a(3)*T)+a(4);
theta_Angle2 = (b(1)*(T.^3))+(b(2)*(T.^2))+(b(3)*T)+b(4);

figure(3)
hold on
for i = 1:1:10
plot(x(i), y_fit(i),'.')
pause(0.5)
end
hold off
OR
plot(x, y_fit)

As KSSV already pointed out you need integers as array indices.
Additionally i would recommend to use markers to make your data points visible and move the 'hold off' out of the loop:
hold on
for i = 1:1:10
plot(x(i), y_fit(i),'marker','*')
pause(0.5)
end
hold off
