For example, on the episode that I just finished was on Dewford island in granite cave. They all get seperated (except Ash and Brock) and Ash calls Mays name first. So that means he puts her first (well at least before her brother)
    Yeah, I've noticed that a lot too. He does call her name first most of the time, either out of habit or perhaps something more... If you look at it from a shipping point of view, I guess it's kind of cute, seeing Ash worry about the girl first, then the rest. I wonder if it's like that in the original Japanese version?

    On an unrelated note, I've been hunting for a Shiny Skrelp all day (13:00 until now). 182 egg hatches later... Nothing. FML.

    Shippings I like: Advanceshipping and AmourShipping.
    Shippings I don't exactly care for: Contestshipping and Pokéshipping.
    Everything else is fair game.

    My shinies:
    ♀ 115 Hatches
    ♀ 125 Hatches

    In progress:
    Skrelp @ 308 hatches;
    Honedge @ 25 hatches.

    I feel you.

    Though what I was more getting at is that people can turn most anything shippy. Take a random scenario for example (no I am not thinking about it just writing thoughts so its not too specified scenario.) they both like to eat food, that's a hint from the creators!!! See what I mean, for someone they can turn anything into a hint. There are some real good ones, but I find some shipping hints ridicules. (All ships included)

    Yeah. I mean, unless it's blatantly obvious that there's at least some kind of emotional attachment (Ash putting May in the capsule thing in M9, for example), the so-called "hints" aren't exactly hints. They both like food. Who doesn't like food? Just personality quirks that both characters, is all. Unless one character develops habits and ways of thinking that originated from another character (thus displaying attachment) but that's a completely different story altogether.

    UPDATE: 286 eggs, still no shiny

    Have you thought of trading?
    I realize that they ask ridiculous things for them, but you may never catch one

    Even with some of the so called "hints" it's still fun to see what they have in common

    Yeah, I mean, at least those things in common show that the characters in question have some chemistry and some compatibility, compared to some who don't have anything in common. However, a counter-argument to this is "opposites attract". Speaking from experience though, I know that things don't exactly work that way.

    And yes, I have thought of trading. I've acquired a Japanese Skrelp and I'm Masuda Method breeding them. With odds of a shiny hatching a around 1/1024, I'm 8 times more likely to encounter one. It's just a waiting game now...

    Opposite attract can work. I know a friend that shares a relationship that is pretty much like Ikarishipping (at the start) and are still together till this day, so really, its not impossible but the chances for it to work is questionable.

    Actually I caught a shiny just last night. Apparently the more tips you give the bigger chance you have to encounter shinies. It's even better when your using a poke radar in a huge field of grass. I think I was lucky to get one in three turns of using it. Head into grass that shake really fast and if you keep going into ones that are, you'll get one. If you see a grass shake really fast that glitter, thats a shiny for sure.

    Alright, back onto the topic of advanceshipping guys.

    Hello? Welp, i joined serebii to get some FCs last week and now, here i am, realizing there is actually a thread in Serebii for my OTP, btw, its great how it has been getting so much activity the last days (fuk i cant do the pk face in this laptop)

    How did you find AdvanceShipping?

    Welp, tbh i had a crush on May since i started watching the ADV generation, which was the last one i legitimately watched in the anime, instead of jut skipping through everything until the league in DP and BW. Back on topic, i was 8-9 and i thought May was the perfect girl (and still kinda do) back then, so, since as a kid i sorta related to Ash and his pokemon master quest, i wanted them so bad to be a couple i ended up believing it myself up until i watched the 3 episodes were May came back in DP, and i was old enough to realize they werent a couple. I guess you could say that was the main reason i left the anime, more than the horrible pacing and laughable storyline (sorry if im being too harsh, its just imo).

    So, around this year, funnily enough in May, i watched the last 4 pokemon movies i hadnt seen in 4 years, since i actually really liked them, so, i streamed Arceus and the Jewel of Life, Zoroark Master of Illusions, Victini and the Black Knight, and Kyurem and the Sword of Justice in about one evening, and then remembered, why i had kinda lost interest in the anime. So then, i looked up May in google images and saw a bunch of AshxMay artwork, and thought about how i really liked this pairing, and then it happened. I saw 1 picture that said something along the lines of ''Advanceshipping, you know its the perfect couple''. Naturally, i googled it and read the ENTIRE list of hints on bulbapedia. That same day, i was reading fanfics, and during 2 months i went around reading any fic, good or bad, and i must accept i enjoyed them all, either because they gave me good laughs due to sheer cheesyness, or i got totally abstracted from the canon in the anime, with some like Two of a Kind or Fiercer than a Legendary. As i have read the last few pages, i see theres a lot i havent read.

    Also, this fanfics basically introduced me to how to analyze and judge a story, so now i actually realize how horribly cliche and badly developed was the Twilight saga.

    What is your favorite Advanceshipping moment/hint?

    I totally love Bicker the Better, the way they both blush and try to say they have no liking for each other is so cute, after that i guess the more ''serious'' oments, such as the Donphan island and Ash showing how much he really does care for her. I cannot see any way this ship wasnt good, except for the fact, welp, **** YOU WRITERS.

    And to end my presentation, i have an alt called ADVshipping on PokemonShowdown! that is how much i love this ship.

    P.S. SOMEONE RECCOMEND ME GOOD READS, i kinda read quickly, so while Masquerade and Advance Wishes seems to be dragging on for quite some time, i have nothing to entertain me with bar breeding in bw2 and XY until pokebank.

    Hey guys, I'm having trouble finding this one-shot (I think?) fanfic where Ash went out the contest hall just to give May a flower. Please help.

    Well I wish I could suggest a few oneshots with that theme but I've read so many over the years it would take ages to compile a good list or so.

    Hey I was wondering(yes I do that from time to time.)

    What is the most popular advanceshipping format?

    What I mean by this, is what type of format had the most productivity/activity and/or what is most popular with people (other people included). Possible formats would be fics, fanart, forums, ect. (Think of something else? Feel free to add it.)

    Fanfiction no doubt. AS is really strong in that format. AMV's and fanart have been rather slow these days. The forums seems to be alive once again.

    And that is also due to people like us. (Random faces). ): (: XD DX

    Also as of late some forum activity has been better, maybe due to all the hoenn remake speculations.

    Yesh. 3rd gen remake speculation has been good for activity. If they do, I hope that they give May a few cameo episodes in XY. I acknowledge the fact that she'll never be a part of the main cast ever again, but the least they could do is put her in for a cameo.

    The only thing I'm worried about is that the newer audience won't know who she is and for that reason, they won't do it. After all, it has been 10 years since AG... Ah well, here's for hoping for a cameo and *maybe* a certain ribbon?

    Yeah but May's last cameo was in 2008 so really it hasn't been that long. May's Teddiursa figurine has made unexpected cameos in both the start and the last episode of BW and plus if May does make a cameo in XY Ash will talk about her to his friends and their travels together so the new fans will know who she is.

    So really there isn't anything to worry about.

    I imagine is would be something like charizard, where back story would be given, then she come.

    Well since Pokemon is getting the hang of talking about backstories and finally seeing how important they can be to a character I can really see Ash talking about May and their journey in Hoenn and Johto (and a little in Sinnoh) for a few minutes. Ash talked about Charizard for about 8 minutes. I don't think he'll talk about May for that long but hey, I feel like that each passing year that passes us by is a step closer for the Hoenn remakes.

    When the 3rd gen remakes come out, what do you guys expect from the anime? Not what you want, but what you think the producers will do.

    Personally, I think it'll be a mini-arc like with Misty during the Hoenn saga, where May comes back for a few episodes as the central focus, or a Wallace Cup-style arc where May plays an equal part to several other characters. I'd really love to have May return as a traveling partner, but I don't think it'll happen, sadly.

    Gosh dang it, SatoSere is even pulling me in slightly with its oppressive magnetism. Stop it! I want to choose my ships on my own!

    I'd have to agree. I think the producers may (haha pun intended) throw in a mini-arc of sorts. Along the lines of Misty's thing in AG. Then again, I won't exactly get too hyped up for a cameo. I don't want to disappoint myself... I hope it happens though. It has to happen.

    Shippings I don't exactly care for: Contestshipping and Pokéshipping.
    Everything else is fair game.

    Honedge @ 25 hatches.

    So, for fanfic recommendations, go for TheShinyGengar's Civil War. Yes, it may never be finished, but it's a masterpiece. Actually, anything Gengar has written is amazing. Midnight has some great ones, like Reunion and In The Unknown World.

    Now, for May's return. It would be awesome, but it's worth noting that Masuda said during Diamond and Pearl that Misty would never return as a major character, so we can't expect it for May. Cameos are still in the cards, though. Wallace Cup, maybe? Could be in Hoenn this saga.
