...is the idea that "Misty hates Ash, so she can't be in love with him!"

I'm sorry, since when did Misty *hate* Ash? They're friends in canon, and they've shown signs of liking each other, even if platonically, several times throughout the series. So why do people think that Misty is Satan's incarnate out to kill Ash? (I've even seen Misty and Ash compared to Hitler and the Jews) It just boggles me.

It is a stupid argument, just ignore the people who say it.

Anyone who thinks that Misty hates Ash clearly watched the first five seasons of the show with their eyes closed and their fingers in their ears. I don't think that any of the intelligent anti-Pokeshippers use that argument.

I don't understand it either.

When CyberCubed and Jo-Jo agree in something it has to be the truth.

Anyone who paid attention to the animé knows that obviously Misty doesn't hate Ash.

It also bothers me when people say all Misty ever does is insult Ash. They clearly only watched the beginning of season 1, and then tried to ignore the rest of the series. Misty is tempermental with Ash and gets frustrated with him a lot, but she doesn't constantly ***** him out and insult him. They spend a lot of time being good friends too

Ash has said that Misty is his best friend. Friends can fight, too. I argue with my best friends all the time.

Besides, it's like the Nurse Joy said years ago: "When two people fight, it shows how much they really care about each other." Or something like that. XP

Wow, that is the weakest arguement against Pokeshipping. Shows where intelligence comes from, no?

Never compliments him? True, Misty may insult Ash several times, but you can't say never. That's an exaggeration right there, don't you think? We've seen Misty compliment Ash's skills very often, if you listen to what she says. Try seeing the seasons again, and perhaps you'll catch my drift.

I wouldn't say that it's a strong argument.... I'm sure Anti-Pokeshippers have much, much more intelligent and valid arguments against Pokeshipping

I don't belive that Misty 'hates' Ash

Having said that, the "When two people fight, it shows how much they really care about each other" arguement bores me to tears

It has been quoted several times in the show, however, so it evidently doesn't bore the writers to tears. :p

A bike that she forgets about several times, until something comes up to remind her.

This is probably the silliest argument I've heard...it doesn't even have any ground to stand on.

Yeah. Anyone who's paid attention could vouch that while yes, Misty does insult Ash, she compliments and thinks highly of him. She was sad to leave in Gotta Catch Ya Later, and she cheered him on in the Hoenn League, even though she wasn't there in person. In the Mirage Kingdom episodes, she was going to have them as her guests. If she 'hated' Ash, she likely wouldn't have done so.

Wow. Though I may hate Pokeshipping, that's such a pitiful argument against it >_>

Oh, my. Where did you see that crap, Roses Ablaze? I haven't seen anything anti-shipping that stupid for ages. I'm sure it was not around here in serebiiforums. So... don't let it bother you. It's just... crap.

Well, I have. It wasn't too long ago.

I think that some people just don't understand it. They know that Misty at least wants Ash to succeed, but that a real friend wouldn't be mean like that. I think.

But that argument really frustrates me, it's so difficult to explain it out to someone. It's really something you either get or you don't.

But really, this belongs in another thread . . .

Hakajin, that's quite true. There's at least one member who joins this forum and claims something like that every year - in any kind of way -, so I'm not too surprise.

The only way I would see why those people say that Misty must hate Ash for she can't be in love with him is because of the exaggerated temper of Misty's that a lot of people put into Misty's character . . . directed to Ash. I would certainly love to debate how Misty is not always tempermental, but that belong elsewhere. :p
