Welcome to the offical thread of AbilityShipping on the Serebii Forums!

For those who don't know, AbilityShipping is the belief of romantic interest between Anabel and Ash Ketchum from the Kanto Battle Frontier season of the anime.

Here's the rules:

-Discuss about the topic, AbilityShipping, here. You can also talk about anything else related to it, such as evidence...
-No bashing or spamming.
-Be friendly to everyone.
-Don't steal other people's art. I hate when people do that...
-Do not advertise your fanfictions, put the link to your fanfictions in your signatures. Do not post chapters in your post here, but do so in the fanfiction area.
-RPing a little is okay, but not to much that it becomes spam. Thanks!

That's it for now, so discuss! ;254;

While it will not be as major as those like Advanceshipping or Contestshipping I still think of this ship as one of my favourites.

Well I've always wanted to pair the main charcters with different people besides the obvious one, and there as alot of shipping in the tower episodes so I'll support it mainly because i can see the basis for alot more episode plots or scenes between the two.

Discuss about the topic, Towershipping, here.

Okay, I'll discuss it.

Ash and Rafe are t3h hawtest and ky00t3st couple ever!

TOWERSHIPPING IS NOT ASH/ANABEL. Get another bloody 'ship name!

Call it Lilacshipping or something. Bet that's taken though too.

Flatchestshipping? Don't kill me for that one. :)

But the way she clutches her hand and blushes after holding Ash's hand, how sweet.

Ditto. I thought the idea was cute before we got any "evidence" for it, so of course I'm gonna stand by it.

(Well, I had a miserable day, so allow me to be mister negative.)

Anabel is a character that won't be seen again. I'll be surprised if she's even mentioned again. Supporting this ship is pointless.

(No, I don't feel any better.)

ash5550
1st April 2006, 1:11 AM
Sorry if this counts as spam, as I'm not a supporter. So what if your mister negative Nodot? Lucy is gone, but phallicshippers still supprot it. Mist is gone, but they still support it. Just because she's gone, people won't stop supporting it. Once again, I apoligise if this is spam.

CyberCubed
1st April 2006, 1:15 AM
Uh, most people know that Anabel will probably never show up again.

That's not the point, it's still a pretty sweet ship that was even one-sided canon in the show, something a lot of other ships don't even have.

I like it mainly for the fact that this is exactly how Ash ships should be. No pointless arguments, no crappy bickering. Just a strong friendship with a girl, and the girl really likes him but keeps it to herself. It's awfully sweet.

that reminds me of May. I know they had fight's, but I do belive that she does really like's Ash and mostly has keep it to her slef.

I don't know about Anabel becuse I have not seen the episodes yet.

Yes, and that is why Tower/Lila/WhateverShipping is soo beloved...

Not to mention Anabel is hot as a fire too...

I'm sorry I didn't see this topic so I made another by accident :[
I love the ship, its my favorite thus far, I think she could return and could join the gang for adventures in another season. I loved it when she blushed after Ash shook her hand, very cute. Plus I think she's pretty, I want her to admit her feelings to Ash soon :]
If she returns I mean.

Dude, /what/ other fandom?



TowerShipper – Rafe & Ash

It's been called that for over a year and the thread at Bulbagarden can prove it.

And of course 'ship names from different fandoms can be the same. Shucks, you got an Honorshipping from both Pokémon an Yugi-oh. That's not the problem here!

Geodude
1st April 2006, 9:17 PM
OK then clear something up for me, who is this Rafe?

Dark_Scyther
1st April 2006, 9:37 PM
Rafe is from Destiny Deoxys, he's the one with the Blaziken (not the one who had a crush on May)

Shadow Ichigo
1st April 2006, 10:29 PM
I love this shipping^^ can i join you guys? Rafe x Ash? I thought this was a Ash x Anabel thread?

DEMONCAMERUPT
1st April 2006, 11:21 PM
I believe i once made a thread in the shipper forums about Battle Frontier pairings and the name i had for the Ash x Anabel piaring was called BATTLEtowershipping. by adding Battle to the front one can differ between it and the Ash x Rafe pairing that is Towershipping.

Geodude
1st April 2006, 11:23 PM

Oops, I thought he was from another show entirely, hence the "two fandoms" comment. Sorry about that.

I suddenly have an urge to call this RisaShipping. ...Taken from Rira's (Anabel) "Ri", and Satoshi's "Sa". ...Yeah, I don't exactly find that creative, but meh.

;;

This pairing is soooo cute!! I love it! I couldn't help gushing at the pair! XD Not to mention that it inspired me to draw again. w00t! Plus, the ending of that second epi with Rira in it is so fantastic! A nice way to end it, as a compliment to the writers. ...But I had some suspicion before the second epi with Rira in it. << >> ...Maybe a tiny bit.

Shadowcat
2nd April 2006, 12:52 AM
I agree Kiori.

It's so cute. Especially with the scene of Anabel blushing when Ash touched her hand. It was so cute. XD. There were many scenes which were shippy between both characters. It's cute.

ash5550
2nd April 2006, 1:14 AM
Well, I said I didn't before, but I do know! Its cute, and very obvious. Anabel had a crush on Ash! *Ash and Anabel sitting in a tree music plays* What should the topic be?

Edit:Pike Queen Lucy, you said it was cute three times in one post.

Edit again:turns out I couldn't claim it. Oh well.

Dark_Scyther
2nd April 2006, 4:57 PM
It's not the best topic question but here's one

Lets say after he gets back from beating Pyramid King Brandon, Anabel is waiting for him back at his house (Like Misty was when he got back from Hoenn).

How do you think they will both react when they see each other again?

Fixed to avoid confusion

I'd think they would be very suprised, but happy to see eachother nonetheless. Delai would question why a frontier brain was at her house! 8D

I'm just asking: If this thread is talking about Ash x Anabel, then why did you mention Breadan here if you can talk about it in the Hoennshipping thread.

Brandon = last Frontier Brain
Brendan = RuSa male rival

..Yeah, I don't get it either, but the Brandon Dark_Scyther is talking about is a Brain. .... And what if he meant Brendan? What does that have to do with Hoennshipping? May wasn't even mentioned in conjuction with him. =P

2nd April 2006, 6:46 PM
Hmm, well, I was thinking. Wasn't there more evidence when Anabel blushes? I thoguht it was cute when Ash's Tauros saved them from Beedrill. It was cool to see Anabel protect Ash from the single Beedrill, it was a crush at first sight. Plus, they sent a good amount of time together.

I loved every scene with them together, really I did. When I saw images with them together I thought to myself kiss him on the check go on you know you want to LOL. Becuase some girls will just kiss him on the check like that. But I was happy they at least showed some signs of her liking Ash with the blushing in the end after he shook her hand. Ask for your question; I think the first think she would do is confess her feelings to Ash right away. This did give her time to think about her feelings for Ash on whether or not there real. Any who I'm hoping she travels with Ash and co next season, than we would get so many shippy signs with them together all the time, I think I'll write some fan fictions in fact. This is the best ship ever :]

The Great Butler
2nd April 2006, 8:26 PM
If she was at his house, they'd probably first be surprised then one of them (likely Anabel, as Ash is still....eh, empty in the head when it comes to this) would come close to confessing.

Then Scott would come out of nowhere AGAIN and ruin it O_o

Blazing Charmander
2nd April 2006, 8:37 PM
I looooveee this pairing. <3 As soon as I saw the pictures for the second episode, I just couldn't help but look at all of their adorable scenes together over again. I couldn't believe it when at the end Anabel blushed from Ash touching her hand. It was cute.

I am now hoping that after the Frontier challenge, a huge party will be held at Ash's house in Pallet, where all his friends, and the Brains (yes, including Anabel) are invited. That would give some quality scenes with them together. Plus, we could see some jealousy between Anabel and Misty, lol.

Also, Ash5550. I am very sorry about the couple claiming situation. I hope it's OK with you 'cos I feel quite bad about it. -_-

ash5550
2nd April 2006, 8:42 PM
What do you mean? If I lost them, I'm fine. I got Brock and teh Nurse Joy! Anyways, I'm fine. Yeah, thats it, I'm fine... *Goes off into weapon room* lol. Jk. Edit:cute pic, and I got something else to make up for them.

I'm surprised how popular this ship has become. After the initial response when Anabel's two episode titles were revealed I thought I'd be the only Anabel fan on here. But now that her episodes have aired, between our Anabel Fan Club and this thread......I'm very surprised.

Well they do look so cute together. And any one know where I can find some images to put in my signarture? With them together possibly...

Alas I hope she returns for more episodes. I have a question for all of you of this ship;


Do you think Anabel will return and go with them on adventures?

Here (http://www.filb.de/?site=anime/eppics&ep=ag169) and here. (http://www.filb.de/?site=anime/eppics&ep=ag170) Great pics from both episodes.

I would be ecstatic if Anabel returned, even if for just a temporary shot. I wish the writers would realize what potential they have on their hands with her......

Maybe, after all, she and Ash did become good friends and I don't know why, but I'm expecting some kind of party or congradulations after he gets all the symbols, giving her another chance to appear and even join up with Ash and co if we're lucky.
Another thing to mention would be that since the Battle frontier is almost over and D/P is probably not going to come out for a while, there will probably be some kind of filler like the orange islands which would be a great chance for Anabel to join the team, after all, it seems like alot of people are supporting Anabel/Ash and it would give the writers another ship to play around with in the mean time. Besides I'm kinda expecting them to replace Brock with someone soon (he's just been there way too long and what does he really even do anymore?), a spot which could be perfectly filled by Anabel.

please excuse any bad grammar/spelling I may have used, I normally don't write posts this long

Too bad she is probably not going to appear again. And as for the cuteness of this ship... I kind of remember the whole admirationshipping thing. Wakana's crush for Drew was the kawaiiest thing at the moment, so does Ash/Anabel is now. Wow, BF has a lot of shippy stuff! ^^

You do have a point there about Brock. Maybe she might join the team. The makers of Pokemon need a solid relationship for Ash ^_^

The difference is Wanaka's crush was just a fangirl type crush, Anabel developed her crush through her and Ash's friendship.

yes he does, especially since he's been kinda ignored relationship wise for a while now (don't anyone say advanceshipping) and he is getting older I think so it might be a good move to at least put someone in there to be a potential relationship for Ash, Anabel probably being one of the best choices being as I don't think Misty is ever coming back (hopefully).

Thank you for the links, now I can use them in my signature YAY. Also good one like some one here said Brock has been here along time and hasn't done any thing threw out the series. I mean if they can replace Misty who has a bigger fan base than Brock than they can replace him as well. And what a better person to replace Brok with than Anabel :]
There would be so many shippy moments if they were together on adventures, Anabel would probaly get closer to him as every episode went on. New question for you all;


If Anabel did come along with the gang would Ash and Anabel get closer?

The Great Butler
3rd April 2006, 1:23 AM

You're welcome.


As for the question.......almost certainly. They could really do so much here, since they broke the barrier even Pokéshipping couldn't....sure, we all knew Misty had a thing for Ash, but she never blushed like that on sight of him....

Very true. Can we get some fan art? I'd do some but I don't have a scanner
:[

We need to keep this topic up :]
Its the best ship ever.


Another question;

Do you think May picked up on Anabela's crush? She looked like she did in the images from what I saw. Also for those of you who didn't reply to my other questions feel free to do so :]

Well, it seemed May kinda knew about it, though it was nothing that Brock or Max couldn't pick up either. I really don't think May cares about Ash being with Anabel just like Ash doesn't care about May with Drew.

Actually, the question that I think should actually be asked is: Do you think Ash Liked Anabel back? If you look at the episode pictures The Great Butler provided, it actually seems that Ash at least enjoys her company, if not more.

Lastly I agree with this being a great ship, I really hope the writers decide to make Anabel appear at least once more, if not join Ash and co. And this is coming from someone who dislikes shipping.

I just finished watching the two episodes recently, and I must say, I'm already a huge fan of this ship. I'm not sure why it appeals to me so much, since I normally don't care much for Ash ships. I think because there's something so childlike and innocent about it. It's really cute. ^^

As for May picking up on Anabel's crush... I'm not sure. She seemed to think it was cute how well they got along. Brock and Max pretty much reacted the same, though.

I'll definitely do some fanart of this ship later, when I'm not so busy.

Awesome^^ I can't wait to see your fanart of them Alopec. I got one: If Ash goes to another journey to a new region, Do you think Anabel will go with him?

skarmachild
3rd April 2006, 11:37 AM
Heh, I usually stay out of the Shipping threads alltogether, but Ash/Anabel was too cute to pass up. Just saw the last episode, and whenever they're on screen together it's adorable.

I doubt she will ever return, but I'd really like her to. Theres been no real relationships at all in Pokémon, but I'd like this to be the first, though heavily doubt it.

Question, how old is Anabel anyway?

Blizzard
3rd April 2006, 11:45 AM
Dunno about age, but she is young enough to have a normal relationship with Ash (i.e. three or fours years older, no more)

Shego
3rd April 2006, 12:54 PM
It appears like Anabel have a same thing for Ashy-boy like Whintey did in Goldenrod City.

Ayra
3rd April 2006, 1:12 PM
I just read the new episode pictures, and I think that the ship is likely! Just like the one with Brock and Lucy! I found that extremely hilarious! A woman actually liked being hit on by Brock!!! I guess there's a first time for everything!

They probably would get a lot closer. Judging from the last two episodes, Ash and Anabel really seemed to enjoy each other's company. So if a friendship was growing in those episodes, then it would surely blossom into romance after travelling with each other. That's unless they start irritating each other on their travels.

From what we've seen from the pictures anyway, Anabel has already developed a crush on Ash and Ash enjoyed being around her.

So there is hope for the return of Anabel yet.

Caseydia
3rd April 2006, 6:09 PM
From the looks of it, this is one of the first times Ash has been extra extra kind to a girl and it is nice for him to get along with such and extra extra cute gymleader.

Shego
3rd April 2006, 6:50 PM
Well, if Anabel returns and going Ash,and friends on the journey, then they might get closer.

dannyphantomhott
3rd April 2006, 7:25 PM
Anabel seems to be the same age as Ash thank goodness. Misty was a couple of years older than him, I didn't like the age difference. May has an age difference from ash as well, so finally the same age/girl for Ash. And thank you for fan art, I'm working on fan fictions as we speck for these two love birds. Honestly I hope Anabel returns I really do, she was a great character. I don't normally like gym leaders for some reason, but I did like her and thought she matched well for Ash. So I like the rest of you hope she returns at some party fot Ash victory of some sort.

Dark_Scyther
3rd April 2006, 7:47 PM
Well Listening to the latest Bulbacast, it seems there is an unoffical name for Ash/Anabel and it is called.

Dun Dun Duuuuun

Abilityshipping

so what do you think?

Shego
3rd April 2006, 7:55 PM
I think that is called "closeshipping". It's a shipping between Ash,and Anabel that both of them become one with their pokemon,and getting close at the same time. Don't you think?

Alfonso
3rd April 2006, 8:02 PM
...I thought this thing was called Towershipping?

I hate when things like this come along. It has lots of people crawling over themselves to name it, usually in the rush creating crap and much-too-general times.

Is that the right name? I like it, very cute. A name that says any things possible for the ship, that shows there are no bounarys at all, no limits. I think this ship could really do big things for the show, don't yah think? You know be the next big ship.

P.S
I couldn't get images in my singature do to not having links of the images, so if some one could help me out there that would be great, thank you.

God, can't think of anything. Uh - just reconfirm that it is Abilityshipping (don't know why but okay).

whiteabsol
3rd April 2006, 11:58 PM
FWEEEEEE!!! 83 I think Abilityshipping is a cute name ^_^


Ash did seem to like her company, and it's obvious that Anabel likes him, so of course they'd become closer if they started traveling together.

I think Anabel is a couple years older than Ash but not by a whole lot. She's young enough to have a normal relationship with him.

I think I might just do a one-shot with these two. Who knows? XD It depends on how much time I have, though.

Anyway it's not just a trend going on here, it's going on over in Japan too. I've been making my way through Pokemon-Search.com and looked up Rira and BOOM! A buncha new Anabel sites o_O. There were only 3 or 4 before. She certainly got hella popular. This ship while one sided (and probably a one shot deal. I hope the Brains appear to congradulate Ash on his win though.) It's still a very cute coupling. And it's got actual "Evidence" to boot.

I Battle In Outer Spaced my way through the Interweb and saw a lot of neato fan art. Hmm Expect some more soon though @_@ Because I have a feeling there will be more to come within the following weeks. @__X Even the Adult sites got their slimey hands on her... Thats a topic not for this forum though.;347;

I was able to find some at Pokesho's PBBS too.

FWEEEEEE!!! 83 I think Abilityshipping is a cute name ^_^


Ash did seem to like her company, and it's obvious that Anabel likes him, so of course they'd become closer if they started traveling together.

I think Anabel is a couple years older than Ash but not by a whole lot. She's young enough to have a normal relationship with him.

I think I might just do a one-shot with these two. Who knows? XD It depends on how much time I have, though.

~W.A~


I do think that Abilityshipping is a good one for Ash x Anabel.

Does anyone like this pic when Ash shake hands with her?

Well, if its big in Japan, with any luck the writers will decide to bring her in. After all, they aim only to please their Japanese audience right?

And about the earlier age thing, if Ash has actually aged at all during his journey, he would probably be at least her age, give or take a year.

Isn't Brock/Lucy the same type of popularity?

i.e., it was popular around the time the episode aired...and then a few weeks later it kind of drifted...and now nobody cares anymore.

I wonder if this ship will have the same affect on the fanbase.

Actually in the anime, just by looking at someone you can guess how old they are. Anabel is more or less the same age as Ash. She's probably as old as Misty too, judging by her size compared to Ash.

Oh God I hope not @_@..Hmm.. Somehow I don't see that happening though. Altoshipping is still around..No where near as big as Poke,Contest,Advance and other shipping but it's still there.

Lucy didn't have a huge burst of Websites in the Japanese circles (huge burst of Fan Art however is another story). Anabel on the other hand did.

I wonder what it was that Anabel said at the end of the episode when she cradled her hand.

I don't speak much Japanese (I can read katakana just fine though. Some kanji too like Kaijuu, Explosion, Sentai, Super, Destroy, Child, stuff like that). Only Japanese I know are lines from anime, Super Robot Wars, and Kaijuu films.

Well what ever she said it must have mean something deep. It'd be pretty funny if she said something um... not Abilityshipping at all.

Anywho @_@ Off to class. I'll search for some more pics later.

I think she said "May we meet agian Ash!" While holding her hand and blushing, that would be so cute if she said that. And I only speack English LOL. I'm sure Anabel has a crush on Ash, after all she when she healed her hand after shaking Ash's hand she blushed. So I say she def had a crush on Ash. Here's one question;

If Anabel were to run into any other girls that had a thing for Ash would she get jelous?

Sorry for my bad spelling LOL.

P.S

I loved the fan art, and I'm writing a fan fiction for them as well. I'm taking my time though so it will be great to read, once I'm done I'll post the link for all of you, so if you want to read you can. And I'll possibly make a website soon too for them, a pettition is a good idea, they brought Brock back after all maybe it can do the same with Anabel. I mean she is very popular, like I said before Brock needs to be replaced already. He doesn't do much this season, so we should replace him with some one cough Anabel cough LOL.

Edda Robo
4th April 2006, 6:53 PM
Well it's pretty obvious she had a crush on him. @_x I just didn't expect something like this. It wasn't until the 2nd episode that they bonded some more. There was no way I thought this pairing would happen if someone said "hey Anabel and Ash make a cute couple" about two weeks ago.

Two weeks later and then

*ATOMIC EXPLOSION*

"Saigo made boku no kimochi wa yomenakatta ne, Satoshi". "Until the end, you weren't able to read my feelings, were you, Satoshi"

That's what she said. Taken from pocketmonsters.net

I support Pokeshipping, but I think Anabel and Ash would have a connection on a deeper level than he did with Misty. One could say they're kindred spirits. She's like all of his rivals/friends he's had before. Gary, Richie, etc. The only difference here is that she happens to be a girl.

<_<...She could have passed as boy though.

Darn whats the name of that character type.. She isn't exactly a Tomboy.
If she were a guy, she'd be given a spanish term I often use and hear, a "Dandy".

I sure hope this shipping lives on. Anabel's proven to be much, much more popular than anyone expected, even me. She would easily make an excellent starring character if Brock leaves soon (if I wrote it, I'd have him run into Lucy at the Battle Pyramid near Pewter City, then they'd run off together---leaving the slot for Anabel open)

I hate to be blatantly advertising, but do join the Anabel Fan Club if you haven't already. Link is in my sig.

That brings up such a nice scene that I am seeing in my mind right now.....this could really work, if they picked one shipping to make truly official.


"Until the end, you weren't able to read my feelings, were you, Satoshi"

Very well done double meaning there. You were supposed to think she meant it in regards to her telepathy power, but......heheheh. ;)


I loved the fan art, and I'm writing a fan fiction for them as well.

Anabel must be in many a fan fic now. A character of her excellence deserves it. (And even though it's not AbilityShipping, don't forget Enigma Shadow....wink wink)

Oh yah Anabel seems to be way more popular than some of the other guest start characters, all the more reason to have her return. That's what matters to the writers, popularitie after all. And I will join the Anabel fan club too, I might even make an Anabel/Ash shippers fan club if the people in charge will allow me too. Also I think that scene I described should happen in an episode if she returns that would be so cute. That's one I never thought of Misty V.S Anabel, I think Anabel would win heheh.

And I will join the Anabel fan club too,

Thank you. :)


Anabel, especially since she's a psychic, would KO Misty before she could even blink.

I'm surprised I'd ever say this, but I'd favor it more if Misty lost at this point.....(gets shot) I mean, if she stayed with them there'd be a conflict, but since she's been gone for so long and won't be brought back for any length of time..............

With that said, I'm looking forward to "The Scheme Team!!!" and seeing Misty again.

Very true. My cousin is many years older than me and with a son, yet she looks ten-years-old. Short, skinny...her son weighed more than she did when he was like six I think. ^^;

And on Alfonso-kun's comment on this ship not lasting too long, I have to agree. Even though I do like it, I have a feeling that it's "buzz" will probably fade out over time. Honestly though, I don't think it'll fade as quick as Azami/Takeshi...which makes me laugh a little considering how many fans Azami has. You think it'd be the other way around.

To Shego-Your right it would be great if Anabel confronted her feelings for Ash, Misty would be so jealous.

To Geodude- Very true once it get's aired in the US the ship will become popular once more. But it may not die for all we know :]

And a fan fiction about Misty V.S Anabel would be awesome some Abilityshipper best get on it before a Pokeshipper does or else they'll have Misty win right away LOL.

Yeah, but I suppose a few months from now this ship won't be as "active" anymore either. People are still getting over the initial excitement because the Anabel episodes just aired.

However as we move on with this saga, the Anabel episodes will get older than older, and if she never appears again, people will lose interest.

It's popularity probably will drop until the dub of the episode comes out, and then it'll probably drop again.

That's the problem with one-shot ships, after some time passes people just forget about them.

I think Altoshipping is the only one that managed to stay popular for so long, but that's because it was a movie and not just an episode.

You have a point there CyberCubed but Anabel seems to be way more popular than any of the other guest star characterts. Also As long as I'm around this ship will stay a live on the board forever!

Upon hearing of abilityshipping, I didn't really think much of it, but it seems to be rather fitting, actually.

My favorite Satoshi pairing is still altoshipping, but I think this one is rather interesting and cute.

It's more-or-less a little extra the writers put in that probably won't last, but it's cute nonetheless. ^o^

I'm not sure if anyone has made animated gifs yet... I'll post one I made earlier today (it's a bit large, and not incredible quality, but I hope they suffice):

Yes but then again, not only was this an episode but an episode in which Ash and Anabel became quite good friends.

Though seriously, you do have a point, it probably will lose interest but then again, no one knows anything until it happens (unless their psychic or the writers).

Does any one have an Abilityshipping signature or image that can fit in my signature? I didn't mean to do that, I thought my image was the right size, guess not. I need the link though to the image.


Also here's a question;

Should Anabel and Ash confess there feelings for each other right away? Also has any one noticed how Anabel and Ash have the same begining letters? How cute is that? :]

Looks just fine on my PC. Ah whatever, I gave you the source page anyhow.

Huh.... Well this is a cute pic. i might get modded but Pokesho's fanart gets posted here and he's pretty fan servicy.. Anyways if I get modded Im sorry for my poor taste.

Also has any one noticed how Anabel and Ash have the same begining letters? How cute is that? :] only here. their names are Satoshi and Rira in Japan.

I guess the time it takes for this pairing to lose members depends on how much people actually like this shipping. I for one love it, so I'll try to support as much as I could - whether by posting here or actually making fanart and fanfics.

Found another one just a while back and I forgot to post it.

For those of you that don't know, there was another pairing with Anabel that existed before Abilityshipping. I dont know it's english name, but it's called RubiRira in Japanese. Ruby x Anabel. Heh guess Ash doesn't know he's intruded into some claimed territory ;347;

'Claimed territory' my foot. Maybe something like that would work in the games, but this is the anime Anabel were talking about here; so to Brendan...

Stay in the games, and step off!! :D

Back to being serious.

Should Anabel and Ash confess there feelings for each other right away?

No, that would, sort of, kill its impact. I think they should get to know each other some more before actually confessing their feelings.

No... definitely not. The whole 'secret crush' idea is part of the reason this ship really appeals to me. I'd like it to stay that way, and perhaps one day have Ash figure out on his own. It's doubtful, but I think it'd be cute. ^^;

I love all the artwork that's been posted so far! It's all so adorable.

Alopec, you nailed it right there. That's exactly what I meant when I said that Ash and Anabel confessing each other's feeling would kill its effect.

Edda Robo
5th April 2006, 3:56 AM
I concur. I think thats the same reason why this Ship appeals to me aswell. Her crush on Ash was a secret, and subtle.

It was also based on a deep connection they both shared. They're love for Pokemon. Obviously Anabel has a deeper connection with them, but Ash has his ways of being deeply connected with Pokemon too. I think one of the main reasons Anabel probably had her crush with Ash was how close friends he was with them.

dannyphantomhott
5th April 2006, 4:08 AM
What every one is saying is true, Anabel should not confess her feelings to Ash right away at all. That's one of the main reasons I like the ship that and I think they look cute together. I love all of the fan art, keep up the good work people. I'm still working on the fan fiction, I'm taking my time on it so every one will enjoy it once its done :]

Nother question;

Should Ash and Anabel wear matching clothes?



I think it would be cute if they did. So I wanted to ask this to you and hear your responses on this. Also to those who haven't awensered the other questions feel free to do so.

I don't know about that. They just met in two episodes. Once they know each other more then Anabel have a shot of winning Ashy's heart.

Edda Robo
5th April 2006, 3:38 PM
Anabel and Misty have the best possible chance to even pulling Ash's dense heart strings. I believe if Anabel knew Ash as long as he knew Misty their friendship might have evolved into something more. ;347;

I still can't figure out what category Anabel is.. She has a sense of class the other girls that have taken a liking to Ash doesn't have.

@_@ She's no tomboy, but dresses like a Dandy...Darn whats the word..@_@

I was totally suprised at the amount of shipping the 2nd episode had. There werent too many hints in the first episode.

Hopefully I'll be back later after class and work with more pictures. Wish me luck XO

*Marches off with the Battle In Outer Space EDF March*

Shego
5th April 2006, 5:34 PM
Yes. If Anabel have see Ashy again, she would have hold on to his arm. By the way, I say that Misty,Melody,May,and Anabel each have a good chance to reach Ash's love.

Edda Robo
5th April 2006, 6:05 PM
@__@ Well it's break time.

While those all do have decent chances, I still believe Misty and Anabel have the biggest edge over any of them. Misty has known Ash for a very long time. No doubt she holds him very highly. As I mentioned before, Anabel and Ash's connection to their Pokemon is something that they have in common.

I could seriously see Ash holding Anabel in high regard like he did to Richie, Sammy, and eventually Gary. It's been quiet a while Ash has had a friend that connected this well with. Probably Morrison from last season. Only difference here is that Anabel is a girl. Ash is pretty dense when it comes to girls though. ;347;

*shakes head*

Hmm I like this aspect of the ship. Ash the determined but sometimes clueless Country Boy. Anabel the classy dandy country girl.

Yes I think Anabel is capable of winning Ash's heart. They have so much in common and I like the fact that Anabel is a gym leader, how cool is that? Ash would be dating a gym leader. They could train together and go on adventures together, just so sweet. And I love how Anabel blushes like that, but I already said that LOL. I wonder what it would be like if they wear matching clothes, that would be so cute.

Yes, the page that I arrange the character,and the background. There's nothing wrong with the shipping between Ash,and Anabel,and I love it. It's just when it's comes to pokesho, it's hard to finish it up when I selected the characters,and the place. It's all written in Japanese.

Well, since Ashy had turned 14 in Kanto Battle Frontier Saga, I think that Ashy will get the feelings that Anabel likes him in the later episodes due to Anabel's return.

Episodes:"The rise of Anabel"
" Anabel lives in Ash"
"The basic,the standard,the Anabel"
"That's so Anabel!!"

How's that?

Good question, maybe more than Tracy but I'm not sure about Brock. Anyways, I hope she returns, even if they don't get rid of Brock. She would still be a good addition to the show.

Also the fake episode titles all sound pretty good, though the second one seems like it could mean multiple things...

Anabel should come back first and get some more character development, then we can talk about confessions.

And yah she probaly is more popular than Tracey, so it maybe just maybe she could come back since she is. And your right The Great Butler we need her back, she could get some real character development in the series, not to mention some nice moments between Ash and Anabel. I wonder if I could use one of the images in my signature or Avatar, I don't want to get banned after all :[

=o huh.. Well Im back from work. Anyway, I have a suggestion.

If you want to give this ship some steam. Some of you have mentioned that you do fan art. Any of you good at Drawing Boards/PBBS? You could go to the Oekaki boards at some Japanese sites and draw some pics there. The interface is pretty simple.

I was able to find a promising page. I'm sure they'll appreciate the pics.

http://page.freett.com/kadukiai/satorira/top.htm

x_X I wish I could draw figures. Im good at model work, and mechaincal drawins..x_X Nothing useful when it comes to pokemon fan art.

To be ultra realistic I don't think Anabel is gonna replace Brock. I do think it is likely of Anabel reappearing again at the end of the Battle Frontier though. Like a congradulations party. Boy... Does Pokemon have filler until the next game...x__o..

You did a superb job on the art. If Brock doesn't get replacedI think she will come back too. I'd love it she came back as regular, it would be so great. And I still say since she's popular enough we have a chance :]

If it was a guy like Ruby/Brendon (a nod to the RubiRira pairing), and if Anabel and Ash were friends for a while, I think he would get jealous. Otherwise no I don't think he would. Ash is still pretty dense. If Ash did get jealous I think it would be a "stop getting in the way of our friendship" sorta deal rather than "stay away from my girl". At least initially.

Ash has gotten jealous before though. He got jealous over two times in the Orange League arc.

Come to think of it. I think Ash would take Anabel's frienship like he would with a close male friend..>_> ;347; Someone like Sammy, Richie or Gary. Like someone mentioned before, I think Ash would have to find out for himself about Anabel's crush on him.

I love your banner Hyuuga Negi, its so cute. And I will try not to rush things don't worry, I"ve learned from my mistakes :]

Ask for what type of hints I'd love to have. Maybe just simple ones, like Anabel and Ash dancing together in a ball, Ash boweing down to her I could so imagine that, it would be way sweet. Also maybe have adults conuse them for being a couple. Also maybe have them do a team battle agianst two other trainers.

To Shego-You could be right, Ash has matured a lot since the Indigo leauge and is very caulm when it comes to things.

Edda Robo
6th April 2006, 9:02 PM
Ash has toned down a bit, but he's still a bit of a braggart. If theres one hint I'd like to see (probably never. Make s amuch cuter fan art though), it would probably be Anabel making Ash lunch/dinner. Subtle hints are a lot cuter in my opinion.

The reason I posted the PBBS link was to give a place for the artists here to draw their Abilityshipping/SatoRira Oekaki art. I think it was Alopec who asked for a guide to the PBBS.

Im not going to ask for more fan art though. At least not in the way you put it. I'm sure more fan art will pop up soon enough over in Japanese circles. I just wanted to help the fandom by showing SatoRira/Abilityshipping themed Oekaki boards so fan artists here could help the fan artists in the Japanese circles.

Would she like Anabel?
As with all of Satoshi's friends, I think Hanako would adore Lila to the very end. I think she would start out looking at her as another child (she acts so much like Satoshi after all), but as time progressed, I believe as both a mother and a women, she would discover how Lila really feels about her son and be happy for them. She may know that Satoshi may not feel that way for Lila, but the idea that a girl would care for her son that much would bound to make her pretty happy, and in the end I'm pretty sure she knows things would work out.

Another plus for their relationship is that they DO get along so well. After all, when have you ever seen Satoshi water fight with another girl, let alone anyone else? I think if exposed to Lila more, Satoshi could easily begin to develop feelings for her without really knowing.

"Would Ash be jealous if Anabel talked to another guy/got hit on by another guy?"

Likely. Wasn't it during the Orange League when this happened with Misty twice?


"What would Mrs. Ketchum think of Anabel?"

She'd probably get along famously with Anabel. They both raise Psychic type Pokémon, and I could see them together cooking too.

What exactly do you need someone with Photoshop to do?

I would need someone to basically turn it into lineart from straight pencil, if possible, and color it.


What would Mrs.Ketchum think of Anabel?
Would she like Anabel?

There's no doubt that Mrs. Ketchum would like Anabel. Shigeru-kun pretty much said it the best about how Ash mother would treat her.

I do that all the time on photoshop, so I'd be glad to help if you need any. (As long as it's not really messy and I can see where all the lines are supposed to be. If I have to guess, I'll probably screw it up. @_@)

Anyway, I agree that Mrs. Ketchum would probably adore Anabel. ^^ It seems to me like they'd get along perfectly.

That's true Mrs.Ketchum would probaly get along with Anabel, they would probaly have a lot in common and talk about things, like what Ashe's first word LOL. And share pictures with each other, and maybe Anabel could even tell Mrs.Ketchum that she has a crush on Ash. Oh here's a new question;



Could Anabel tell Mrs.Ketchum that she has a crush on Ash? If they get close.

I guess not since he can seem calm at times but he can get mad like when he wants a badge. >_>

Well, I guess between girls. Mrs. Ketchum would probably be approved of the relationship and be happy that Ash has an admirer. Lol.

If anything, I think, it would be when Anabel and Delia start bonding is when Misty might feel threatened by her. I see Anabel as the type to help around the house. Probably on the same level Misty and Brock do. Another girl getting close to the mother of the boy you like would probably be the one thing that would alert Misty that someone else is interested.

=D Expect the Oekaki guide up in a few hours.

I was working on a few sets in my fan film the past few hours and I can finally have time.

I already Anabel was a girl, myself. I mean, what mother would name her son 'Anabel'? It's characters like Harley and Narcy Hide (from Rockman EXE) who cause the confusion.


If Team Rocket called Ash and Anabel (I think we should give her a cute nickname, don't you?) a couple, I would laugh my butt off, especially if May and Max did giggle at it and embarass Ash.

That's a cool thought, DEMONCAMERUPT.

Someone is requesting a fic where Ash is trained by legendary Pokemon, and he becomes a Pokemon "Avatar". I figured the original Avatar, Ash would be accompained by two others. At first I couldn't decided who be the heroine; but now... I think Anabel would be perfect as his female companion.

The only problem is, with stories like that - unless I'm the one who comes up with the ideas - I may end stopping it. When the time comes, when I start this fic, will you guys help me out? I will to turn it into a Abilityshipping fic.

Edda Robo
9th April 2006, 3:32 AM
I think Anabel's ability to connect with Pokemon makes her a more suitable person to be something like an Avatar or even Nausicca.

AnywayI found Anabel art, but havent found any Abilityshipping pics. Well From what I can tell, the site I showed you is probably gonna get some art soon.

(Their Oekaki PBBS was kinda busy when I visited)

If you ask me, I say that Anabel had a crush on Ashy-boy. I mean the way she spend time with Ashy, it kind like she had feelings for Ashy.

I love the way you read the episode summary, and passed it off as a feeling. Despite the fact she says (something alon the lines of): "You were only able to read my feelings in the end Ash."

Hey everyone, when I come around to doing the Pokemon Avatar fic, I was going to draw a picture of Ash and his team to tribute it. But I have a few questions regarding what could be on it:

Should I draw Ash in his normal AG clothes, his Rukario movie outfit, or something else?

What kind of outfit could I draw Anabel in? (A detailed description would be very helpful)

Who could be the third hero? I was thinking it could be another guy, but no one who could possibly interfere with Ash and Anabel's relationship - someone to be like a brother to Anabel. Who could I use?

Suggestions would really be helpful.

If anything Brendon/Ruby has been paired with Anabel/Rira in Japanese circles. Maybe consider that. I don't know what you could dress Anabel as, but it shouldn't be very feminine. Nor masculine. It should be something that is adrogenous. I.E. She has to wear Pants and a Long Sleeved Shirt.

Brendan, huh? Maybe he would be Ash's arch-enemy (for a good reason), like Prince Zuko is Aang's arch-enemy.

I guess Anabel could something similiar to Ash's hero outfit, but the blue shirt is purple, the gray jumpsuit (or whatever it's called) on Ash would be navy blue on her; and she has no gloves, hat, or cape.

Or, this one:

I don't think Ash ever can bond with Pokemon on the same level Anabel can. Simply because he doesn't have powers like she does. However I do think she does appreciate Ash's connection with his Pokemon. It's still pretty close. I think thats the main reason she likes him to begin with. ;375;

After they become very close friends, then Anabel could tell her that she falls in love with Ashy.

Edda Robo
12th April 2006, 2:35 PM
Good one Liger.

Hmm... I guess it's that it looks cute. I think Advanceshipping is cute, but being honest here. Pokeshipping has a lot more to reap here. It had been quiet a while that anybody has had a crush on Ash and was some sort of important character.

Macy's crush was outta the blue, but I guess she was kind of irritating in the sense she just had to be obnoxious to Misty. Anabel isn't obnoxious and while she geniunely likes Ash like Misty does, her methods are more subtle and I guess thats what I like. No arguing or whining.

Hmm I can see a decent case for each of those girls except Whitney o_o Is there something I missed out? Care to point it out?

I'm here. And I alos happens to like this shipping. You see, Anabel has feelings for Ashy,and he seems to like her as well when I saw the screenshots. Anabel seems to be pretty popular.

Um... none! O_o;

I guess what got me into Abilityshipping is the fact that Ash and Anabel got along so well, the fact that she has a strong bond with her Pokemon like Ash does, and - this is the clincher - she blushed when Ash shook her hand at the end of the second episode.

And, of course, her statement, "Until the end, you weren't able to read my feelings, were you, Satoshi?", kind of suggests some mutuality on those feelings.

Abilityshipping drew me in because it's just so CUTE. They look perfect together and it does appear their personalities clicked as well (the pic of the two of them laughing while covered in mud is a great one)

It'll be just a shameful waste of opportunity if they don't do something with this.

Man, I really like conflicting ships! I like this shipping, but I also like Altoshipping (Ash/Latias) and Chikoshipping (Ash/Bayleef). I don't know why, this is the first fandom I had this happen to me. O.o

Anyway, I'll start with a fun caption.

I already loved Lila, so the idea of pairing her up with someone had come to me along time ago. The reason for it being Satoshi though...pretty much because he'd be the one battling her and it'd be cute. *lol* The fact we got something to really happen was just an added bonus. I never expected that to be honest. ._.;

And btw, what song do you think fits Abilityshipping the most?

Hey there shippers should I make a debate for Misty/Ash and Anabel/Ash yet? I love debates. Also I asked this a while back but some one said it was too soon to make one. And I do think Anabel will be back, but I said that alreay hehe. Ask for what got me into Abiltyshipping....Well the images I saw, Ash and Anabel always being so close together smiling, than the end when Anabel blushed after holding Ash's hand, its just so cute.

I'unno, it'd be kind of hard simply 'cause Misty is in a lot more episodes than Anabel.

...Get a Clue by Simon and Milo? Like Satoshi trying to figure out Rira's Psychic power... ^^;; I'm low on ideas. Would it help if I gave you guys lyrics?

Oooo, Get a Clue isn't a bad one. I never thought of that. *lol* Then again, it's pretty hard to think of songs for Satoshi and Lila. It's not like they have a bad relationship or anything, but it's just not one you find in songs much.

One song I thought might work would be Beautiful Stranger by Madonna. I mean, Lila didn't know Satoshi when she saved him, she just popped out of nowhere. Furthermore, the song talks about how the boy could be good for her because she also has a taste for the danger (and compared to most girls, Lila kinda does. She acts more male than female).

Yah but we have more proof of Anabel liking Ash than Misty liking Ash in the more reccent episodes :]

Yes, but Misty has had more proof spread out over the rest of the series.

Oh, and I just started liking this ship, for no reason. It just attracted me like a fly is attracted to a dead cow.
