A reason as to why would have been :awesome:, but I'll keep this open. Unless people start a war.

I prefer Pokeshipping, just because its classic and junk. I prefer Dawn and May with other people. Negaishipping comes in second place though; I'm liking their interactions so far, because they're a bit reminiscent of him and Misty.

I will go for Negaishipping. It's yaycake cute how they interact.
Good old Pokéshipping comes second.

I would like to point out that there are no major Misty shippings other than Pokeshipping, but May has Drew, and Dawn has Kenny and Barry, and Iris kinda has Trip

If Twinleaf is a major Dawn shipping and Flavescent is a major Iris shipping, then Egoshipping is a major Misty shipping. Just saying.


I voted for Pearlshipping.
I prefer May with Drew, Misty with Tracey, and Iris with Cilan (is that his name? I'm used to calling him Dento) so that just kind of leaves Dawn.
Plus, Ash and Dawn were so close during the DP saga and Pearl was the first shipping I ever truly supported, how could I not pick it? It's so cute and IMO, Ash and Dawn are made for each other.
So yeah, for me, it's Pearlshipping for me.

Orangeshipping was a very popular alternate ship for Misty back when Advanced Generation was airing.

Most of the specials have Tracey visiting Misty at the Gym.

I voted for PokeShipping. Apart from being nostalgic, I really enjoyed the chemistry between Ash and Misty. They always teased each other and they say that when two people tease each other constantly, it means that they actually have deep feelings for one another. There were some other minor hints as well, though I rather not list them all haha. Anyway, I've tried giving the other Shippings a chance and I found them all to be very interesting. However, there is only enough room in my heart for one Shipping, and PokeShipping has taken that place.

I think Negaishipping is cute!! :D So is Pearl and Poke, I like May with Drew so I don't support Advanceshipping.

23rd February 2011, 2:18 AM
I'll take Advance, please. Besides being very cute, Ash and May have the best dynamics out of all main characters. I kind of sympathise with the Pokeshippers, however, as Misty's been gone so long. I despise Drew so I don't support Contestshipping.

23rd February 2011, 3:57 AM
I voted for Pokeshipping, I'm in love with it. May and Drew are perfect together and I'm in between pairing Dawn with Kenny or Paul (I know Ikari isn't that hinted at but I can't help it, lol) Oh, and I'm loving Wishfulshipping ^^

23rd February 2011, 5:26 AM
Pearlshipping for me.May and Drew work for me.Misty and Gary click together and Iris and Dento are awesome together.Poke and Negai are cute too.But if I had to chose it would be Pearlshipping.I never seen a close relationship like that ever in the Pokemon series. :)

If Penguinshipping and Twinleafshipping are major Dawn ships, then Orangeshipping is a major Misty ship.
And I wasn't aware that Iris and Trip have had enough interaction to be remotely considered a rival to Negai.

If you can consider Penguinshipping and Twinleafshipping major Dawn-shippings and FlavescentShipping a major Iris-shipping, then Orangeshipping and Egoshipping are major Misty-shippings. Just saying.

I voted for Pearlshipping.
First of all, they look super cute together. Dawn wore a cheerleading outfit for some of Ash's gym battles; neither Misty or May went to such lengths to cheer him on, I can't count the number of times they've high fived and there's High Touch, which is just the ultimate Pearlshipping hint, IMO.
I also really really think May and Drew belong together and I also really love Wishfulshipping and Orangeshipping as well.
So yeah, IMO, Ash and Dawn belong together.

I'm a Negai shipper. I'm one of those people who'll change ships as time goes on. I got into Pokemon at the end of the Advanced Generation series. At that time, I was an Advanceshipper, or at least I think I was. At that time, I was 9, I didn't know about shippings, I didn't see too many Pokemon episodes, and I got into it right as it was ending. The only reason I was an Advanceshipper is because I saw this thing on Youtube about Advanceshipping. And again, I didn't know too much about Pokemon. Now, after alot of debating and thought, I'm now a Contestshipper. I moved after the 4th generation came out, and with all the change, I lost interest in Pokemon. I got MAJORLY interested a few years later, and then I learned more about Pokemon, and got obsessed. Then, I accidentally stumbled on the Anime Shipping list on bulbapedia, and I learned about Pearlshipping. Seeing all their hints, I decided to look at some of those episodes and got hooked. But now, DAWN LEFT!!! I lost faith in Pearlshipping . So now, I'm a Negiashipper!!!!! They're so cute together, and they've great hints for only 20 episodes together. I'm a major Negaishipper now, and I [I]HOPE I won't change when the series is over. Hope, but I probably will. As for Misty, I don't even ship her with any body. Misty's gone, shame.

It was a hard choice, between Negai and Pearlshipping but I choose Negaishipping they are so cute together, just love there interaction.

In the end this is really just going to end up being a war.

I'd go with whatever Ship is Ash and Misty. I don't have much knowledge behind the names so, whichever that is.

Hopefully not, I mean we can all respect each other regardless of what shipping we like.

And that would be Pokeshipping ^^

For me, it's only ever been Pokeshipping, and that's just always been a fact.
I literally watched Pokemon from the first day it came out, every single day until Misty left. I didn't even know what 'shipping' was until a few years ago. For me, Ash and Misty was synonymous with TK and Kari from Digimon, or Fred and Daphne from Scooby Doo. I just never questioned why I liked them, it just seemed so natural to me.
I'm not going to deny that I'm sentimental. Because I always accepted the fact that I like Pokeshipping, I've never been able to see Ash in a relationship with any one else. I absolutely refuse to start shipping wars though. I accepted a long time ago that shipping is based on interpretation and personal preference, and not every one has the same mindset I do.
I realized one reason why I liked Ash and Misty so much after watching a few AG and DP episodes this summer. Besides the fact that I see their friendship as such a natural thing, Misty's always been Ash's rival. It's a different relationship between May or Dawn with Ash, in my opinion. Ash seems more like a mentor to the two, while Misty and Ash more or less started out on the same level and grew together.

so far im not too sure i mean all the ships named out all seem to have a click with other people other than ash, i beleive that it may be a lil too soon for me to decide, but for now ill stick with pokeshipping

PokeL
24th February 2011, 6:24 AM
I'm a Pokeshipper. Always was, always will.

Misty and Ash just have this special kind of 'magic' between them. When I was 6 I already knew that they belonge. And if a 6 year old can figure such things out it means sth ;)
However, the other thing why I support Pokeshipping may be that it has the most hints. Say whatever you want guys, but it's true. You needen't be a Pokeshipper to admit that.
Also Misty is my favorite Pokegirl. She's just special. And she reminds me of myself.

The other thing is I can't imagine Orangeshipping. I dun dislike Tracy but to me they just don't fit. And Ego has Crack. May has Drew (and Contest is just as obvious as Poke), Dawn has either Paul, Kenny, Yun (prefere that name ;)) or Conway (that ship might be not that popular but I like it =pp) and well.. Iris has Dento.

Besides I love Pokeshipping I think Advance is kinda cute. Though to me they're more like best friends but if it doesn't end Poke I'd rather see Advance then anything else.
And I like a few Ash-ships with sidecharacters, too, just like Alto, Ability or Morpheus.

No flamers, my opinion only =p

24th February 2011, 6:27 AM
I chose Pearlshipping simply because of the way they seem comfortable with one another. One is depressed while the other also feels his/her depression and wanted to be there with one another. They support each other in many ways and it felt natural to me in the relationship the 2 have for one another. The issue obviously is the handling should have increased, but oh well.

I support any Ash's ships, that doesn't matter to what Ash is being shipped with.^^Although I ship any of Ash and female lead shippings.. I prefer Pokeshipping, since I grew up with the original season and it became my OTP. (any of his ships are really good too btw..)

xDiceyshipping
24th February 2011, 8:23 PM
Pokeshipping, no doubt. (:
I think Pokeshipping is the shipping with the most hints, and when I was little I thought Misty was his girlfriend. I think I started believing that after the episode Ash wanted to capture a ghost-pokemon. I just love that eppi. ^^' Misty cares a lot about him, even though she doesn't like showing it. ;o When the second season started, I was a little bit of a Orangeshipper too. But that faded away.. xD
May has Drew. How can you not love a boy that's giving you roses? xD
Dawn is the girl that needs topick between Paul, Barry or Kenny. I think she likes all 3 boys. Or at least, they like her. 8D
And I just dislike Iris.. She is irritating me. So I stopped watching after the 3th episode. I can't judge, but after I saw some AMV's I think she looks cute with Dento. But, like I said, I can't judge on that one.. xD\

24th February 2011, 8:42 PM
Pokeshipping because the most hints and signs came between them two. The degree of the signs where also much more of an impact for a close relationship, than the small signs post-Original series. May and Ash just seems like a huge no-no, there is nothing really between them. Dawn seems more like a student to Ash. Misty and Ash just had that connection which I can't really rationalise, it's down to interpretation anyway. I also quite enjoy the idea of Ash and Misty together, she was my favourite out of Ash's companions.

24th February 2011, 10:13 PM
If my name for some reason does not speak for itself I am a pearshipper. While it may not have the most hints, in my opinion, it has the most powerful hints. They have always done everything in sunch with eath other. The high fives were cute, the cheerleading, and the ice cream date are my favorites. I also loved Lyra for trying but I digress.

I like Negai shipping. Iris and Ash would make a better couple than anyone else. Pokeshipping is a close second.

I like Negaishipping. I think that Ash and Iris go good together. I felt this way when they met each other. They seem like they will have a cool relationship.

26th February 2011, 4:31 AM
I say Pearlshipping, but only because I haven't gotten around to watching any other series but D/P Galactic battles.
The way that Dawn cheers for Ash, how Ash cheers for Dawn, it just fits to me. They just seem a perfect couple.
Advanceshipping comes close. I personally adore May, not sure why, but I do. She and Ash seem a sweet couple in the two movies I've seen them together.

PokéShipping, definitely. They had the best chemistry ever and it was really sad to see Misty go. Second would be PearlShipping or AdvanceShipping. Not too keen on NegaiShipping as of yet.

26th February 2011, 2:09 PM
^ Double post withing 1 minute? Slow down dude.

The only ship of these who doesn't really affect me, is advanceshipping. Just because
I like may and drew together, haha.

Negaishipping is the one I voted for.
Pokeshipping comes second.

I'm a definite pokeshipper, because Ash and Misty seem to be the perfect couple, as they are both hot-headed and that. Second place goes to pearlshipping, and I prefer May with Drew and Iris with Cilan.

Trainer_Kay
26th February 2011, 8:53 PM
Pokeshipping would be my first choice, due to the fact that I have been watching the show since the beginning and have always pictured them together. They just seem perfect for each other. I'd like to go on with the many reasons why I support Pokeshipping, but i"ll keep it simple for now.

Since Misty isn't on the show anymore (though I am one of those few who will always hope that she makes a return) Negaishipping is my second choice. Iris reminds me of Misty and it seems like the writers gave her some of the old characteristics for nostalgic purposes.

RocketTwurpSLR
26th February 2011, 9:16 PM
ash and misty definatly
they had the best chemistry
ash is more mature round may,dawn and iris
ash was a show off in the original seris and it kinda died after misty left, but when she came back for a episode it returned for a while

they are realy flirty around each other even if they didnt know it , they over argue like a normal couple

and they realy care for each other you can tell ash realy misses her and you can tell how much she loves him.

im sick of people saying they ship ash with the other girls and they never watched the original seris, i mean how can you say they love ash if you havnt wached season 1-5. you realy dont know how much you've missed!

my 10yr old cousin said to me once that ash loves dawn and i was like "he does'nt" an i know for a fact he's only watched the dp saga and a few movies

i think its down to who ash loves at the end of the day--and i think he loves misty!

26th February 2011, 10:35 PM
For me, it's none of the pairings listed. I'm a big fan of PokeSilverShipping, which is Ash/Lyra.
But if had to choose from the pairings listed on the poll, I'd say Pearl. Ash and Dawn had the best chemistry out of all of the girls he traveled and they were just so close. If PokeSilver didn't happen, my next choice would definitely be Pearl.
I prefer May with Drew, Iris with Cilian, and Misty with Tracey. Plus, I only see Pokeshipping as a brother/sister relation and Advance as a student/teacher relationship.

blondekid15
27th February 2011, 1:18 AM
Plus, I only see Pokeshipping as a brother/sister relation and Advance as a student/teacher relationship.

I can see Pokeshipping being a sort of sibling relationship with the way they argue, but whenever I think of that I remember how Ash looked at Misty during the Ghost At Maiden's Peak episode when she's in her kimono and I think, "I don't think my brother would look at me like that" lol xD I find it to be a relationship where Misty's waiting for Ash to realize she likes him but he's too stupid to figure it out

EifieChan
27th February 2011, 8:33 PM
I think Pokeshipping is best for Satoshi. Kasumi helped him more than any other girl he's traveled with. Iris is just rude Hakura was more of a ibling relationship. the way they always bickered was different from the way Kasumi did it. Hikari, well, she and Satoshi are friends, through and through. They could never be any more than that. Ikarishipping Forever

I can see what you mean by that. If my brother ever looked at me like that, I'd shoot him. lol xDD sorry, I just had to say that.

But I just honestly can't see them as anything other then friends. That's just me for you though.

Haha yeah I would too xD

That's fine, that's your opinion ^^ As for me i think it's a classic waiting love story since Ash is just...way too stupid, lol. although other shippers could say that with a different girl, I just think the AshxMisty pairing has a lot of potential that never happened :( Oh well, I can always just re-watch the first 2 seasons and I'll be a happy pokeshipper xD

Minryu
2nd March 2011, 11:58 PM
I was a definite Pokeshipper... But something about Iris really strikes me. She and Ash just seem to have a great love/hate just like he and Misty used to have. If I remember correctly she's also blushed a few times around Ash. It's going to be fun watching both Ash and Iris mature as this series goes on. When I first saw Iris' design I didn't like her too much, but watching her in the anime has made her my favorite female to date.

Encyclopika
4th March 2011, 5:31 PM
Of them all, I chose Pokeshipping...however! Now that I've been through so much in the series, I'm not so keen on Ash shippings in general. He is oblivious to the notion of romance, and it's just no fun to ship him because his canon reactions are far from what a shipper'd like to see. Fanfics of Ash ships aren't any fun to read either for the same reason.
The only shipping I like here is Pokeshipping because the fanart is still cute. But given the circumstances in canon, Ash is more into Pikachu than any of the girls. XD

I simply adore Pokeshipping. Though... Negai shipping is worming its way in as a close second. I love interaction between Ash & Iris, It reminds me a lot of Ash & Misty... If those two were ever to meet... I could see a decent rivalry between the two... whilst ash is perfectly oblivious, as always ;D

7th March 2011, 4:01 AM
Negaishipping, I guess. I hope we get more interaction between the two in the future.

9th March 2011, 4:35 PM
Pokeshipping was going to get most votes because the majority of the users here are oldschool type fans who saw the OS first hand, so nostalgia memories are imprinted on them. Even so, Pearlshipping is holding steady considering it doesnt have the nostalgia factor and its not on the current series.

Pokeshipping is the real and the best. Anyone who Pearlships usually never has watched seasons 1-5. As far as advancedshippers you know good and well it was all about May and Drew through the entire series. He was always gifting her with roses. She almost confessed feelings for him and him for her. He was always trying to save her and she always blushed later on in there relationship when there was interaction. Drew and May are going to marry...seriously.

Back to Pearl -I really really love Dawn but I feel like Dawn and Ash are friends. Ash actually showed reciprocal feelings for Misty especially at the end of the Johto league. He was brokenhearted when they split as oppose to when he left Dawn in twinleaf town and was like ok on to the next. My second place ship and I never thought there would ever be one is Negaishipping. I agree that in some ways Iris is reminiscent of Misty just a little though. Misty was a firecracker true to her red hair. She was a fierce competitor and very outspoken...Iris not so much. However I'm all over this Negaiship. I really like it. It can't replace my Pokeship but I welcome it as a distant 2nd.

No one wants to belong to a dead community. Ever since Dawn left, the Pearlshipping forums have been practically dead and those people have been appearing in the Negaishipping thread. Not saying that they only like the ship because it's currently airing, but that's what I'm seeing.
And since Pokeshipping is the most popular apparently, older fans would probably be more likely support and follow it compared to Pearl/Advance due to its similarities.

Mhmm, and I didn't grow up with Pokemon but when I started watching it when i was 13 i absolutely fell in love with Pokeshipping, it really just depends on people's opinions ^^

15th March 2011, 9:56 PM
I don't know why, but I like Pokeshipping (and no, I'm not an oldie, I first got into pokemon when 4th gen came out). I have absolutely no idea how I came to support Pokeshipping.

One ship I absolutely HATE is Advanceshipping. Ash and May... well, it's not the most pleasant idea for me. No offence to Advanceshippers.

As for Negaishipping, I like Wishfulshipping more, and Dawn, um, this might sound weird, but I decided to pair her up with Brock after seeing them crazydancing to distract the psyduck.

17th March 2011, 6:13 AM
Honestly, I ship Ash with practically everyone, my favourites being Palletshipping, Comashipping, Imaginationshipping, Collideshipping, and Dopplegangershipping. Though, if I had to choose from the poll choices, I'd say Pearlshipping. I find their friendship sweet and very endearing. ♥

katnissplant
17th March 2011, 3:18 PM
Hmmm, I've watched Pokemon from the start and I've never been a Pokeshipper. It's tolerable but I don't love it.

I ship Ash with everyone under the sun so really it's hard for me to choose. But probably the one that I ship the most is Advanceshipping.

I'm very what's the word? Liberal with my shippings.

17th March 2011, 5:21 PM
For me it's a tie b/w Negai and Advance.

I love Advance b/c of their chemistry and Negai cause it's active and already has many cute hints.
Pokeshipping is heavily one-sided and Pearl is nothing more than a sibling relationship for me. But that's just me

Pokeshipping is heavily one-sided and Pearl is nothing more than a sibling relationship for me. But that's just me

I have to say, pokeshipping (although most hints are from misty, yes) does have quite a few ash hints and those are quite strong (e.x. he blushed, same reaction as misty, when TR said that him and misty were ditching brock and eloping, he got jealous whenever misty was romantically interested in another male and vice versa, etc.) Pearl, i have to say i do like the supporting each other but i see them as friends, not even siblings, just friends.

Espeonic
17th March 2011, 11:23 PM
I chose PokéShipping. I just like the chemistry between Ash and Misty the most. I'm pretty neutral to Advance and Pearl. As for NegaiShipping, even though it's still kind of early for me to say much for that ship, I'm neutral towards it, as well, but Iris seems to have the most similar chemistry with Ash that Misty had with him.

Crystalmew9
17th March 2011, 11:35 PM
I say Advancedshipping because May is my favorite female character in my favorite Pokemon region, and Ash and May've been through a lot together, but the relationship that would turn the most out well would be Pokeshipping.

Why?

Simply because Ash has been with Misty the longest (through two regions), so he'd probably develop the most bondage with her. Plus, she was, like, the first Trainer he met (not counting Gary), in the first episode of his adventure.

I prefer May with Drew, Misty with Tracey, and Iris with Cilian (is that his name? I'm used to calling him Dento) so that just kind of leaves Dawn.

Those are my favorite pairings for those characters, actually. :) Although, for Ash, I do like him with May as well.

As for Dawn, I do like her with Paul or Barry, pretty much.

My personal prefference is Advanceshipping as I find that they had a nice dynamic and their personalities seemed to compliment each other, Contestshipping isn't a problem as I didn't like Drew's attitude.

In terms of Misty, I'm more of an Orangeshipper as all they were showing on TV for a while was the Orange Islands Season and it sort of grew on me.

As for Dawn I never saw much, the most I saw was Conway stalking her but I haven't seen the end of DP as I lost interest just before Snowpoint City so I wouldn't know anything after that.

I can't have much of an oppinion on Iris as I haven't seen any of the B & W Season.

This is just my oppinion, along with what I think of Drew, which is nothing good.

I don't know why, but I like Pokeshipping (and no, I'm not an oldie, I first got into pokemon when 4th gen came out). I have absolutely no idea how I came to support Pokeshipping.

One ship I absolutely HATE is Advanceshipping. Ash and May... well, it's not the most pleasant idea for me. No offence to Advanceshippers.

As for Negaishipping, I like Wishfulshipping more, and Dawn, um, this might sound weird, but I decided to pair her up with Brock after seeing them crazydancing to distract the psyduck.

:D Wow that's actually pretty cool IMO (it amused me very much) especially after Dawn and Brock got bashed for never interacting throughout DP

I was going to run in here and shout "NONE!" but... after a split-second of hard thinking, I'm going to go the nostalgic route and say Misty.

Everyone and their dog was a Pokéshipper back in the day, and, even though it's far from being my favorite pairing today, it still holds a spot in my heart. Misty has always been my favorite female, because I can relate to her the easiest, and there's always been something about the other 3 that bugs me. Heck, even Team Rocket was supportive of them. You could say it was played up on purpose, especially concerning the dub, but, really, I liked their chemistry very much, and Misty's influence still pops up from time to time, even now.

Misty's influence? The character hasn't appeared in an episode since way back in 2005 and over two generations ago. Unless you mean a brief lure appearance from back in 2007.

I am going to say no shipping at this point. Misty may never appear in an episode ever again and the other girls all have their supporting ships. I think Takeshi Shudo said he gave up on shipping mid Johto.

He might have given up shipping, but it was certaintly a big point in May's storyline after he left.

Dawn has a supporting ship since when? She seemed platonic with everyone. Though, they tried to force some crap with Kenny at the very last minute.

I don't really ship Ash with anyone, or ship much in general. But, I can admit when a pairing looks nice. Ash, and all the main girls individually have their own charms I suppose.

Shudo was the main writer of the original series, he said he gave up on shipping early into Johto because he didn't want the anime to be about love.

This is why Pokeshipping hints came to a halt during the Johto days, and barely appeared at all besides a few episodes.

As for May's storyline, the Contests were easily to put a romance subplot into since they were aimed at girls.

That makes sense now, lol, i was gonna say earlier that it wouldnt make any sense if shipping was supposed to be gone entirely and then they have this guy who constantly gives may roses and they're blushing about each other all the time...so yeah that makes sense now xD

Advanceshipping- Ash and May learned quite a bit from each other, and the Manaphy Movie was PURE advanceshipping (Luvdisc scene, when Ash puts May into the capsule), and Ash and May, no matter how much they fight, always seem to make up. Misty bullies Ash a lot, she seems to fall more into the older sister category, Dawn into the "Best Friend, Sister" category. May seems to be the only different one, and Iris looks a lot like Misty- constantly bagging on Ash's decisions, ect..I always found pairing Dawn with an OC was the way to go, and I despise ContestShipping, and IkariShipping, so all the better! (No offence)

2nd April 2011, 7:19 AM
Had to go with pokeshipping because Ash and Misty just felt so close. Dawn also seemed to have a close bond with Ash but not quite like Misty did. As for May, it just seemed to me that she forgot Ash was there half the time, and she was obviously more into Drew. For now it's too early to tell what kind of relationship Ash will have with Iris so no opinion on that. Pokeshipping FTW.

I went with Pearlshipping. I don't know, I just feel like there was something special between Dawn and Ash that wasn't in the other girls' relationships with him.
Idk, it's just my opinion.

Pearlshipping. (:

Even though it didn't go far with the romance, I still find it to be the most simple, cute and inspirational of all the other Ash centered ships. It's their bond I value the most.

Poke and Negai are fun with the bickering, and Advance didn't really have much going for it other than the few hints here and there (besides, May had Drew).

I'm generally OK with all Ash ships, but Pearl seems so...right. (:

I'm on the fence on all Ash/Satoshi ships. So, I'm kinda in need of informed recommendation.

Should I really choose one and get with a fandom to make up my mind? Or should I just continue going back and forth every time a new female companion appears, never to settle on anything?

Each have their particular, strong pros and cons...

PokeShipping: Pro - First to travel together, have saved each others lives at one point or another.
Con - First male/female dynamic in the series, giving the writers excuse to work them over as much as they could with the short amount of time they thought they had until the series' original end.

AdvanceShipping: Pro - First female to need Ash/Satoshi in her journey development, both the first to go through a region collecting badges/ribbons in their respective competitions.
Con - Their time as student-teacher (the strongest bond they shared) would have eventually ended, and the (first) rival ship is strongest in terms of overall support and evidence.

PearlShipping: Pro - Both have very similar personalities in their determination and aspirations, both have shared and gained several competitive skills in learning from each other.
Con - A rival ship has been made near-canon (in dub), and their final goodbye was not as strong as it could've been.

NegaiShipping, however, has barely begun. Comparisons have been made between Iris and Misty/Kasumi, but that could be counted as a pro or con. That's a matter of opinion.

...Someone wanna help me? Before this thing may be taken down...

What rival ship has been made "near Cannon"? I hope you're not referring to Kenny. Just because in the dub she called him handsome ( or cool, in the jap version.) doesn't mean she is suddenly in love with him or anything. It's pretty one-sided on Kenny's part. Unless proven otherwise. All we have to go on is her "cool" comment. People call others "cool" all the time, so I don't really see any signs of her being interested in him. Most of his appearances she seemed annoyed, or just friendly with him. Dawn didn't have a romantic interest in him, or anybody else really.

At any rate, May has been shown to be interested in Drew. Misty did show a interest in Ash, but it didn't amount to anything in the 13+ years of this show. Iris, is really too soon to tell.

Satoshi
5th April 2011, 11:47 PM
Everyone pretty much compliments each other with the word kakkoii in the Japanese version. It really doesn't mean anything. Guys do it with each other, people do it to their Pokemon.

And lol, someone edited my post even though I was just joking. Wouldn't purposely offend fellow shippers of my anime OTP. >_>

Lol, yes, Kasumi is an adorable tsundere, and Satoshi is so dense it makes the couple all the cuter (the fact that one won't admit their feelings and the other is oblivious to it makes the couple happening all the more desirable). Although Red is a flirt in the manga, right?

Anyways, I just wish Satoshi and Kasumi ended up together, they were the cliche best friends who would get together at the end of the series, since there was only supposed to be one season and movie, and at that point Kasumi was Satoshi's only love interest...After that their hints only increased in the 2nd season which could lead to the belief that they were still going to have them end up together but then as someone said before, one of the writers gave up on shipping during the Jhoto series, unfortunately :(

Although Red is a flirt in the manga, right? Red's Electric Tale of Pikachu counterpart, Satoshi, is a sort of a flirt, but Red from Pokemon Special is more similar to Satoshi from the anime when it comes to love. He has two girls on him (arguably three, which includes Kasumi, Yellow, and maybe Blue) and he doesn't do anything about it. He's not as oblivious to love as Satoshi is, but he's just as incompetent and uncaring as Satoshi. Heck, Manga PokeShipping is pretty much the same as PokeShipping, only Kasumi's feelings for Red are stated outright internally and she doesn't get angry at Red like she does with Satoshi in the anime (since her manga counterpart isn't a tsundere).

However, Red from the games is too cool to flirt with girls. They flirt with him.

The first movie thing is debatable, but it does seem that way from the trailer, depending on how you view it.

ADVluv4life
20th April 2011, 6:51 AM
ADV all the way!!!! I have loved this pairing ever since I saw the first episode with May in it. They just click for me, I really don't know why.

This is coming from a girl who grew up thinking Ash and Misty would make the best couple (before I knew shippings existed). But when I watched the AG I just love their little moments.

Ash and May look perfect for each other and the teacher/student relationship was also a great add. Ash actually knew more then someone at the beginning of a journey- and could use that knowledge to help them. The fact that he helped change May's total opinion about Pokemon pushed this pair on me too.

I DISLIKE with a PASSION Contestshiupping- Drew just seems too harsh, if I was in May's position I would hate it if he insulted me on a back-to-back basis then handed me a rose. It doesn't make up for anything that would have come out of his mouth minutes/hours/days before or after I get that rose.

I can support Poke/Pearl/Negai because I can see how these pairings are represented- I mean there isn't much I can argue with anyway, I DO NOT want any fights. But on ther other hand- like other people, clearly, I don't take other shipping hints as seriosuly (a few maybe, but not a lot at all)

That's it...I didn't need this much info in here...I don't think...but anyway, that's my opinion.

Most of you guys chose Pokeshipping cause it the first shipping appear in the anime.To tell the truth I love each one of the Ash ships.I really don't want to take sides even if I'm a Major Pearlshipper. Each Ash ships is differnet so the relationship between Ash and the girls are different in their own way. Ash treat each one different then each other.So it makes no sense to say that Ash has a crush on someone. I love the Ash ships.To me each of the Ash ships have their own poteniel of happen but Pokemon is a kids show so I don't see any Ash pairing happening.

7th May 2011, 12:45 AM
I haven't kept up with the anime since the Advanced days, but from what I've seen of the newer episodes, I'd have to say that I like Ash with Iris more than the others. All I remember of his interactions with Misty is a bunch of yelling. I don't remember very much chemistry between them aside from a few moments. I didn't see much between him and May/Dawn, either, but the latter may be because I didn't watch too many episodes of the DP series.

However, when he met Iris, they seemed to have kind of an easygoing friendship going on between them aside from the teasing. It was a nice change of pace from the typical love-hate relationships he had with the others.

All of this in my opinion, of course. No offense to anyone else. ^^

I've always been an Advanceshipper, and that's what got me into the whole shipping fandom. Even after all these years it's still my OTP, and I don't think that will ever change. There's just something about Ash and May's chemistry that I love and never found him sharing with any other girl throughout the series. I haven't seen BW so I can't comment on Iris, but overall I think I mainly support Ash with May because it seemed like they just clicked straight away more so than any other couple they make the most sense to me. They would just make a fantastic couple.

QueenZoroark
23rd May 2011, 8:32 PM
I don't mean to bash or anything, but it says 'Ash shippings' so why are there only four on the list? And why only with girls? A lot of people like the other Ash pairings, and Advance, Pearl, poke, and Negai aren't the only ones. My biggest Ash pairing is Comashipping, but I do admit I still have a little love for PokeShipping, considering I love Misty and it's almost canon. The other girls...Iris and May are okay, but Dawn...I'm not gonna say anything about her here.

Again, I don't mean to be rude, I don't mean to bash, but the list should be bigger.

Advanceshipping; for a simple reason, I can't stand seeing May with anyone else. It's above all my favorite ship.

I really don't like pokeshipping, but if I had to choose, it'd be my second choice.

Pearlshipping...it's alright, but Dawn is just way too ditzy. At least Misty has a pure heart AND a head on her shoulders.

Not even getting onto the other one...negaishipping? Ash should be too old by now, she should be too young.

Well Ash isn't too old at all, he's been confirmed to be 10 in the new series. So age is not a problem for Negaishipping, I'm kind of confused about your Misty pure heart comment but meh.

Pfft, I can't see Ash with anyone other than Paul. Ash OTP right thurr. Though I do like the imagery of Palletshipping, I don't think the relationship itself would go well. I feel like Ash still has a lot of resentment towards Gary still, even though they're friends now. With Paul, however, Ash seems pretty forgiving and their dynamic is just better.

Yeah, Ash only likes boys in my mind, so what?

....I find it weird regardless how he's been 10 for 11 years....but eh, whatever. Iris has WAY to much hair on her head for it to be healthy.

Misty, while having a fiery temper, has shown throughout her part as a main character to really have a deep and loving heart (first movie when she shouted after Ash apparently died, 2nd movie where she settled her differences to save Ash...I'm sure there's others). That's more or less what I meant, was too tired to explain myself.

To add to reasons against Iris, I don't really like her attitude or the way it affects Ash. She brings him down into childish squabbles all to frequently in my opinion.

Ideally I would ship her with Gary... I think he'd be able to handle her personality better.

I voted for Negaishipping because Ash and Iris have this connection of somesort and their the trio have had probably the most chemistry throughout the show. I would choose Pearlshipping as my second choice because I found out about ships at the beggining of DP.

I never liked Pokeshipping or Advancedshipping even though I started watching Pokemon at the end of the generation II and I think that the advanced generation was also showing then aswell, I liked that generation, mainly because it had the best theme songs. Hehe *Looks sly*

I was such a die hard romantic when I was a kid, so I always read Pokeshipping fics and stuff. My cousin and I would talk about it from time to time, the Pokeship hints.

But I wasn't really serious about ships until later on and Advanceshipping became my Pokemon OTP involving Satoshi. (Which is odd since I was all over Hoennshipping since May came in, but I guess the games never involve me with the fandom much.) I think I fell in love with how mature Ash had become and how he was teaching May, even though he doesn't do Contests. Also, can anyone say movie 9?

I know Contestshipping is the big thing but I'm lame and I actually haven't watched a lot of episodes with Drew, probably because I don't like the guy too much. I'd rather ship her with Dawn before I would ship May with Drew.

And Comashipping of course, if anyone could tell by my signature. Also, Collide and Kodak are kind of cute too. >x>

sceptile33
5th July 2011, 7:32 AM

I prefer May with Drew, Misty with Tracey, and Iris with Cilian (is that his name? I'm used to calling him Dento) so that just kind of leaves Dawn. Plus, Ash and Dawn were so close during the DP saga and Pearl was the first shipping I ever truly supported, how could I not love it? It's so cute and IMO, Ash and Dawn are perfect for each other.
So yeah, for me, it's Pearlshipping for me.

Exactly the same here,

I think we all know that Pokeshipping is near enough canon. With the endless hints between Misty and him in the tv series aswell as the romantic songs where Misty actually tells Ash that she loves him (Mistys Song and we can't forget Under The Mistletoe!) and even the fact he still carries her lure! I mean, c'mon! It's just so sweet. Hence why it got my vote. I think the only reason that not much romance was seen between the two was the same reason for not involving those two songs in the tv series (though it's all there on the official CDs) which would be... HELLO! 4Kids!!

CyberCubed
19th July 2011, 4:45 PM
aswell as the romantic songs where Misty actually tells Ash that she loves him (Mistys Song and we can't forget Under The Mistletoe!)

These are two dub creations of 4kids from back in 1999, which really have no bearing on what the Japanese writers do with the anime. This is the same 4kids who said that Arbok evolves into Seviper, so its not like all those dub alterations 4kids did all those years ago effect the Japanese anime at all. Not to mention that ridiculous Pokemon Live movie where it was implied Giovanni was Ash's father...yeah.

There's not much reason to put stock into dub creations, they don't really have anything to do with the Japanese writers.

I've seen some Pokeshippers claiming that the Pokemon movie 2000 ending song called "Toi Et Moi" is the Japanese song referring to SatoKasu, but this is debatable.

If Pokeshippers want to talk like that, then Sowelu's "Mamoru Beki Mono" in movie 9 is SatoHaru's song. I'm just saying. ._.


Question though, out of the male Satoshi shippings, why is CafeMocha so popular? I would think it was sort of like a Bouldershipping equivalent but Bouldershipping was never as popular. I think CafeMocha has more fans than Negai!

Well that has to do mostly with Cilan's popularity. Cilan in my opinion has already exceeded Brock's popularity and Best Wishes is still new. Cilan fits the bishounen apperance that has gained many fans. Brock had a likeability factor but I'm not sure he was a bishounen. Add that with Ash who also may be considered somewhat of a "bishie" and you've got a pretty popular male shipping. I agree it's interesting considering this has never happened before with CafeMocha arguably being more popular than Negai, Wishful, or even BestWishesShipping (AshxIrisxCilan).

;334;Pokeshipping probably gonna be a cannon,;334;
There 2 reason I feel that way
;025;1)Ash haven't got a Official Same Aged Female Rival, nither Main or Proper Rival
I mean, Haven't u find it werid, It already pass almost 14 year & only female rival Ash got Is Bianca who happen to be older then Ash
Bianca suppose to be 10 like Ash but for some unknown reason Writer make her older,
Plus Just Name me A Preteen Female Pokemon Battler Ash Met who is experience & Strong as Ash & his other Rival:509:
The only Name U gonna find is Macy Who appear at the Sliver Conference
;133;All the other Preteen Female Pokemon Battler Ash Met Ether just Started their Journey Or gonna start their Journey:509:
All the other Strong female pokemon Trainer are happen to be a Gym leader, Coordinator, or Pursueing some other goal Like Iris & Misty
:635:If I were a girl I would accuse the writer for being unfair for not bring a preteen female pokemon battler strong as Ash's other rival:635:
The Way Writer prevent Ash From Having Female rival make me think they must be affraid of the fact that a relation between Ash & Rival might be too Good for them to resist and It might gain over whelming popularity
That Might be the reason for Writer to avoid Bring a female rival
;334;Another reason would be that Writer planning on bring A preteen Girl as Ash Rival on Ash's Final pokemon journey
;025;2)Amomg 4 girl directly fall for Ash in TV Series ,Misty is the only cute one & other 3 aren't cute at all;025;
This is Strange too,I mean Why haven't the writer make any other cute girl beside Misty Directly fall for Ash
In The Summer Camp the artist Create A lot of cute girl who played minor role But girl who played a Major role in their & Fall for Ash called Angie, Writer make her so boyish And so unattractive, I mean She not even look Femine Why;492;
It's the same with Macy, Anabel. Among all 3 of them only Anabel Look a little Pretty but she's no match for Misty. Movie girl does count cause they doesn't appear on tv show.
Even Other girl who fall for Drew happen to Be 100 time Prettier Then Anabel, Angie & Macy. Plus She happen to be a Match for Misty on look's term
;492;In other Word The Writer unwilling to have any cute girl beside Misty fall for Ash.If they have to do it then they make sure the girl doesn't look cute at all:635:
Dawn & May,both their feeling still a fannon, No matter how many shipper disagree in it Truth is Truth;275;
In Iris's case, we don't know if she fall for plus there no sureity that Iris better looking then Misty or just as cute as her
This are the Reason
:635:Anyway, If this is True Then I am Disgusted With the Writer:635:,
I mean, If He Want Misty to be the true Heroin then Improve her, Don't hold other cute girl falling for Ash for this reason;334;
I mean make Misty fight for Ash Rather then hand him in over to Misty like he is a piece of Candy :509:
Even Misty fan's will be disgusted in this cause it is some way of Insulting Misty ;460;

Tericarax
24th August 2011, 9:26 PM
Thanks the bugs. I wrote a great one, but everything was deleted. uu
So...I'll just write another. *sigh*

Satoshi and Kasumi have, to me, the best relation in the whole anime. As said before, they usually tease each other (and also get in arguments), and it is usually said that this is a way of showing deeps feelings for each other.
When Kasumi left, Satoshi cried, but not for Hiruka nor Hikari, wich proves that his relationship with Kasumi was special, strongest (after all, they travelled together for a loong time).

Another clue I could give would be...My brain. As usual with any - normal - being, the brain gives orders, and the body follows. When I think of Satoshi and Kasumi (not kissing, since they are only kids, and love is...Oh, I don't have much time and I'm tired, to be short, love = instinct of reproduction), my brain is okay. But when I might just even consider the idea of another shipping...Well, you see what a magnetic storm is? Now, imagine it in your head. Awfull, isn'it?
But I'm out the thread.

Another "proof" would be the video that was the first trailer of the movie Mewtwo strikes back, where in the end, there seems to be Kasumi with her daughter, and speaking of her father, Satoshi. But since it never appeared, this is not cannon.

If any shipping was to become cannon, it would be this one, in my opinion; nostalgia apart, seriously. And what nostalgia might I speak of? In my youth, it was Advanced Gen, not Kanto (you don't know how I'm frustrated of this)!

In four words like in two hundred and sixty-nine: Pokeshipping FMB


FMB: For My Brain.


I mean no offense to anyone. I'm just trying to show you my thinkings.

Yeah, I noticed that pattern. I, too, am a Pokeshipper but I don't mind any of the other girls. But, if Ash had to date another girl then I would want him with someone else outside of the group. I tend to ship May with Drew, Dawn with Kenny or Cynthia, and I'm not sure about Iris yet.

Agreed, I don't know why this poll is just about the main girls.

There are plenty of other people Ash is shipped with, like Angie and Anabel, Macy or Melody, Latias/Bianca, or even one-off characters. Not to mention with Gary or Paul too.

There is also always usually at least one filler character per season that likes Ash.....back in DP it was Angie...I am waiting to see who it is in BW,

Pokéshipping. Despite Advanceshipping being the first ship I actively shipped, Misty's return at the beginning of the Battle Frontier reminded me of all the interaction she had with Ash in the past and all of my memories of "the good ol' days" when I had yet to reach the double digits.

I have nothing against the other shippings listed, I actually enjoy all of them. Pokéshipping is just the one I like the most and is my default pairing for Ash and for Misty.

Well, I guess I voted Pokeshipping, since it is my Ash/girl otp (Advance or Negai aren't bad either, but I rather see Advance more like one-sided crush to teacher and Negai is lagging of hints which makes me see them only as friends atm) and Misty was so crushing to Ash.

But Ash/Paul is my most beloved shipping and not just because they "look good together" or because I love both characters. I like their relationship's development and dynamics. And I'm pretty sure no matter how hard Paul tried he just couldn't picture Ash as a loser anymore after hearing he had won the Battle Frontier and beaten Brandon. BD

Pearlshipping all the way baby. Not only did Dawn and Ash connect the best, Dawn half the time went out of her way to support Ash. In fact, Ash was pretty supportive of her contest as well, actually sticking around to watch them unlike the few times he ditched May's performances (Training Swellow, catching Aipom; though he did check in time to time) Anyway, it's still the only one I support and their the only two to my knowledge to get a commercial in Japan

-Dawn isn't even interested in ash unlike misty.

-Kasumi liked Satoshi,just like Kengo liked Hikari.Both got in the end "good friends" sendoffs.
-Haruka maybe liked Satoshi in the beginning,but then came Drew.
-Iris,well...I can´t say for sure,sometimes she seems like Kasumi in her behavior with Satoshi,but I don´t think she will be more than just a friend.Besides she doesn´t really help at all,I think Kasumi will always be his best friend(not more than that).
Hikari and Satoshi friendship was unique,and pretty developed for "10 year old clueless about love" Satoshi.
Like the thread said,it´s Satoshi shipping so I picked the one,in my opinion,that had most Satoshi´s "mature side" involvement

Pokeshipping all the way for me.
I like their chemistry together and they have all around solid hints. A lot of them too.
Advancingshipping for me is alright, though I prefer Contest. Ash and May are very alike, but they sorta have more of a good friends/teacher student relation going on IMO.
Dawn, she can go either with Kenny or Paul for all I care. Her and Ash DO have a close relationship, I'll admit. But I find them like a little sister and big brother. But the ship does have some nice hints. Prefer Penguin however ..
I have really looked into Negai yet, but I've seen some videos. And read an article. I think her relation with Dento would work out better. It might also be because I'm a bit biased considering Iris and Misty are pretty similar .. Still I can't judge this one.

EDIT;; To those who say the Luvdisc hint, I want to state that I've read an entry in the Pokedex before, and as far as I'm concerned it stated that is a COUPLE witnesses swimming Luvdisc then they are blessed with eternal love. Ash and May/Dawn aren't an offical, confirmed, couple. Count the hint if you wish, but that just means it counts for both pairings. Erm, someone correct me if I'm wrong, I'm just stating that I remember ..&I don't mean any trouble ..

I enjoy Pearlshipping the most,but I enjoy Pokeshipping,Advanceshipping,Negaishipping just the same. Stick with the shipping you feel more comfortable with. It would make you happier even if no one like your shipping. I love shipping and I support shipping for fun. So when it comes to Ash,he is dense to know love.

PokeShipping. Misty never followed Ash for her bike, she just used it as an excuse to stalk the boy she fell in love with. And Ash is definitely in love with Misty as well. Some people, like Brock, are open about it when they are in love. However, people like Misty try to hide and deny it when it comes up in conversations. Misty is in love with Ash, but denies it.

I'm a biased Original Series addict, but even when looking at this objectively, Ash and Misty clearly have a relationship.

18th February 2012, 6:43 PM
Okay, I don't even know how I'm supposed to choose! :/
I ship Ash with people more than any other character. His main character status just makes me want to put him with everyone since he meets so many people.

Pokeshipping - My first real ship ever, out of any show. I was so young, but even I knew they belonged together. :') I know a lot of people don't like the way Misty treated Ash but since they're supposedly ten, I thought it was fitting. I knew so many little girls who did the whole 'hate the one you love' act because they didn't know any better.
I don't think I'll ever be able to fully let go of this ship. :/

Advanceshipping - I never really supported this ship. I was still young and a die-hard Pokeshipping when the Advanced series first debuted. Although May became my favorite character quickly, I still couldn't get myself to support Advanceshipping. Then Drew came along, and I fell in love with Contestshipping.

Pearlshipping - THEY WOULD JUST BE SO DANG CUTE TOGETHER. I just feel like they're so alike and they would look good together. (which I know sounds weird since they're cartoon characters) I've actually tied this ship with Pokeshipping as my favorite Ash ship.

Negaishipping - I like Iris a lot and she kind of reminds me of Misty, but I like her better than Misty. I like the bickering with Ash, I just think it's cute. I'm not a huge follower of this ship but that's mainly because I don't really follow Best Wishes..

I don't really know what ship to choose, so....I'm picking Negai because it has the least amount of votes. :/

Pearlshipping, because Dawn is my favorite of all his female travelling companions.

I think the name you're looking for is egoshipping.


Out of the list, I prefer Advanceshipping but I also like the other four too. Pallet and Pika aren't so bad either.

Yes, I agree, maybe an "other" option in the poll, for people who ship Ash with another person than one of the four PokeGirls (Misty, May, Dawn, Iris) would have been nice. Those four are the main shippings, but this way, there is no room for other shippings than these four. I am a PokeShipper, but this is unfair to people who don't ship Ash with one of the main girls, but do support an Ash shipping.

Do you support Ash x Casey? Is that why you want a shipping not on the list?

Yeah but I wished they had "other" as an option too. I have a thing for Comashipping and Ash x Burgundy.

Wait, is Kissshipping Ash x Bianca (movie) or Ash x Latias? *forgot*

...Anyway, Ash x Latias, aside from Pikashipping, is probably the only Ash x Pokemon shipping I actually support. (Maybe Ash x Infernape too, but only a little.)

They definitely do! We are proud to be PokeShippers, and apparently, most people who voted on this poll are!

Except for Misty.

There is another Ash shipping than PokeShipping I partially support. I don't know the name of it: one-sided Bayleef x Ash shipping. Bayleef is obviously in love with Ash. Ash loves Bayleef as a friend and as his Pokemon, but isn't actually in love with Bayleef. Ash's only girlfriend is Misty.

Flame Mistress
12th March 2012, 6:49 PM
Or Ash's girlfriend could be May/Dawn/Iris/etc. Ash shippings aren't just limited to PokéShipping nowadays. Go to Japan and everyone will ship Ash with Dawn.

Personality and likability. And being a good match for Ash. It is just an opinion of course. (:

That doesn't really make any sense to me, what does personality and likability have to do with Misty over the others? There is more to shipping than that, and of course it's your opinion on the matter.

UnbelievableUrsula

Cyber, if you don't like the shipping above you, just pick one that you like, that way it won't bother you so much.

I used to like Advanceshipping but Contestshipping got in the way too much that it turned me off. So I pick Ash x Ursula. Hehe.

Flame Mistress
17th March 2012, 5:16 PM
Well, Calamity was basically saying "OMG, Ash TOTALLY belongs with Misty, screw all the other girls", so yeah.

I don't only look at hints and personality when it comes to shipping. I also judge on the fanbase's attitude, how their relationship is portrayed, what fan work about them are like, and so on. I'm VERY picky when it comes to these things, more than I ever need to be. |D For example, I won't ship ships where every fan thinks that ____Shipping is the best shipping ever and all other shillings involving one of the characters on that ship should die. kinda the reason why I stopped shipping *****Shipping...

I agree with this. They are more things than hints really, it's also how it's portrayed in the fandom and this can be with fanart, the shipper's behavior, songs they use for AMVs--it's all different for each ship. I grew up with Pokeshipping so I still have it in my heart...but somehow with some of the fandom being impolite (I guess xD) about it *not saying anyone here* makes me flinch away from it a bit. I have a feeling I'd like it much more if I was isolated from the fandom. ^^; However, there are many Pokeshippers that I really respect/admire.

Though, I have to say after talking to Joltik-kid, and lokoduro Pearlshipping is growing on me ;>///< I still like Pokeshipping though, it seems to be something I hold onto...so I guess you could say I like Pearlshipping and Pokeshipping equally as of right now.

I've read this before from some other people and I agree with. I don't really see Ash being much of a romantic, and I think that's what sort of clicks an "off" button in my head. (Ash x males/Pokemon/hat/Mt. Silver doesn't count because they are crack ships and meant to be lulzy) So what I'm saying is I don't think I'll ever find an Ash ship that will truly be my "one and only" XD I could honestly see him be single and live with Pikachu...and when he's an old man he'll tell a little boy about the "good ol' days."

ALMOST

Anyway, it's fine to ship two ships equally, I guess. A short while back I shipped PokeShipping and PearlShipping equally, until I drifted away from PokeShipping... So there.

It's also very unfair that people say PokeShipping is just supported because of nostalgia... We are PokeShippers because of the many hints and because we believe it's cute. Sure, nostalgia could play a role for some people, but there are also cuteness and hints. And that makes me a PokeShipper.

That is true. I mean, I hadn't even born when the anime was created, and I still used to support (or still do support, depends on your views) PokeShipping. But as ships get older, they tend to get more... negative... views, I think. Maybe it's because nostalgia itself is usually frowned upon these days, people are pestering each other to move on in their lives. But there're always some people who refuse to let go of the past, eh? =)

To think about it, that'll be the rest of us in a few years' time.

It is not the liking(because of nostalgia)that really matters.It is the opposite.The hating(because of nostalgia)is what really annoys...why is Poke>Advanced>Pearl>Negai in the poll?I mean Negai has some things,and it is the only "updating" shipping.
Nostalgic feelings are normal,I still remember the old days of OS and Kasumi and Satoshi together(traveling together)...it is just that....BW is still good,and there are cool shippings there too.

Thanks, & yes I am aware. Just ignore those people who say that because they sure don't influence me. And you're absolutely right, nostalgia isn't just a major role that plays with Pokeshipping, It's also hints, cuteness, fanart, pictures & fanfiction!
