    Since there are multiple questions in this topic I'll cover them one at a time

    What made you interested in Advanceshipping?
    I thought May was an interesting character and didn't deserve the negative attention she was receiving when people found out Misty was leaving. As I learned more about her I noticed her similarities to Ash and soon after that I liked the idea of them as a couple.

    And did you have any other shippings you supported, before Advanceshipping?
    Not really. I considered many different pairings and none of them stuck. I even branched out to pairing Ash with characters from other anime like Sakura from Cardcaptors and Mink from Dragon Half.

    And have you ever wanted to leave Advanceshipping?
    No. Ash and May are too perfect for each other for me to consider them with anyone else.

    What made you interested in AdvanceShipping?
    I only really followed the anime seriously when Advanced Generation began, and from the first episode, when May showed her happiness that Ash would travel with her, I knew something was brewing there; at the time I was more of a theorist than a true shipper. The true catalyst for me, though, was reading PikaMasterADV's story May's Crush this past summer, and I haven't looked back since.

    And did you have any other shippings you supported, before AdvanceShipping?
    I was a PokeShipping theorist once, but in the sense of a one-sided pairing. I also toyed with the idea of Brock and Misty being paired, but I eventually settled on OrangeShipping when I looked more into the known pairings because I knew Brock could never get a girl if he tried.

    And have you ever wanted to leave AdvanceShipping?
    Never, and proud of it. AdvanceShipping was the first Ship I really supported, and will always remain my OTP.

    Wow, 3 new topics at once!

    What made you interested in Advanceshipping?

    I would say that it started with the Hoenn saga getting me back into the anime, cause all that they had been showing was repeats of the Orange Islands and Jhoto, and then I saw one of the later Hoenn episodes and got interested again, it felt fresh. Originally pairing up characters never occurred to me, but I did prefer the interactions between Ash and May rather than with Misty, and I didn't like Drew. When I saw the 9th Movie it instantly became my favorite, and then later when I accidently came across Gazmof's fic 'Good Love Charm' 2 years ago, I instantly realized I was an Advanceshipper without knowing it, and I have supported it since.

    And did you have any other shippings you supported, before Advanceshipping?

    No, Advanceshipping was my first although I acknowledged Annabel's crush on Ash as well as Lucy's crush on Brock, and obviously Drew's obnoxious flirting.

    And have you ever wanted to leave Advanceshipping?

    No I haven't, they seem to have the best base for a long lasting relationship, unlike most of the other ships that seem to be one sided crushes.

    See Ya!

    p.s. Do not try to fix your laptop by yourself cause you can get electrocuted (it hurts trust me), seek professional help.

    That is all.

    I thought both Ash and May's chemistry with each other were quite refreshing. I thought, 'those two would be a nice couple'.


    And have you ever wanted to leave Advanceshipping?
    Nope. Though the day that come is probably when I outgrow Pokemon all together.

    Me? I was just browsing the shipping foroum when I saw "Advanceshipping General Discussion." It looked iterestiong, so I clicked on it. SUCH good luck! i've been an Advanceshipper ever since, reading some of the better advanceshipping fanfics really just cemented it.

    And did you have any other shippings you supported, before Advanceshipping?
    Not Before, no. Now, however. I support Orange, Ikari, and Lucky shipping.

    And have you ever wanted to leave Advanceshipping?
    No! I've only been an Advanceshipper for like a month!

    A piece of AMAZING fanart...To bad I can't find it now. I then decided to watch Pokemon just to see May (I was an AdvanceShipper before watching pokemon lol) I learnt about Contest and PokeShipping and all that. But I was convinced enough by the hints AdvanceShipping provided, I've even came up with arguments against every hint ContestShipping has. Its that easy to deny.

    And did you have any other shippings you supported, before Advanceshipping?

    Yes. Non Pokemon shipping though like SakuSasu lol

    And have you ever wanted to leave Advanceshipping?

    Why would I want to leave AdvanceShipping when it pwns other ships?

    I've always loved May as a character. I got hooked when I saw Movie 9. I just thought that Ash and May made such a cute pair in that movie ^_^

    And did you have any other shippings you supported, before Advanceshipping?

    Used to be a Pokeshipper, but that died years ago. I'm still an Altoshipper, and an Abilityshipper, though not as much as Advanceshipping.

    And have you ever wanted to leave Advanceshipping?

    How about hell no?

    Since i saw AG episode 1, i just fell in love with the pairing.

    And did you have any other shippings you supported, before Advanceshipping?

    Contestshipping and Pokeshipping. i still support these two but not as much as before. the contestshipping hints just got more boring each time i saw them since they were the same hints over and over, roses and blushing. boring if you ask me, even though they were very convining hints they just so old, repeating the same hints. bleh.

    And have you ever wanted to leave Advanceshipping?

    Yes but it didn't last long. i just watched movie 9 and i fell in love with advanceshipping again. xD

    And i made a new AMV if anyone is interested to watch. ^^

    I think I'll rephrase that in plain English, for clarity's sake.

    What role do you think Ash has played in May's growth as both a trainer and a person? And how do you think this has effected their relationship?

    hi, just a christmas post !
    well the thread's a bit dead i see ? c'mon people let the advanceshipping love come back !

    What role do you think Ash has played in May's growth as both a trainer and a person? And how do you think this has effected their relationship?

    a mentor role, May disliked pok&#233;mon when she started her journey and because of Ash she sees how wonderful they are, and she actually starts to love them ! and she became a great cordinator, with very much help from Ash. Ash began to see pok&#233;mon not only in a way of power and battleling, but also their beauty and their charms. They both have opend each others eyes and they showed different things/personalities of pok&#233;mon. Without them they wouldn't have seen it that fast ! they have grown towards each other as good friend, and we hope for even more.

    btw; does ANYBODY know the new site of Suzu ?
    and i had a pic of ash and may with pikachu i believe, in their new outfits of diamond & pearl
    only i lost it; does any one has it ?
    it looked like a group picture i thought .. and it is from suzu

    and a christmas pic


    A MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EVERY ONE AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR! =D

    looove; intill next time !

    OK, that is what I've decided to say.
    No one can deny that, May've love Pokémon by Ash Ketchum. Yes, Ash's love for Pikachu has changed to May's look with Pokémon: She didn't fear they. I think that only just Ash can do. Perhaps, in the heart, May always admired Ash.
    And Ash, he went with May where May began Pokémon trainer so Ash know everything about May: character, Pokémon favorites,.. They have grown towards each other as good friend, and will be more.

    Merry Christmas Everyone!

    What role do you think Ash has played in May's growth as both a trainer and a person?

    As a trainer, Ash has helped tremendously. I mean, from originally not liking Pokemon and just wanting to travel to one of the best Coordinators in two regions and loving Pokemon is a drastic change. Out of all the Pokemon characters none has under gone such a drastic change even Ash, from starting fresh to becoming a proficient trainer, this change mainly stems from that scene at the start of the Hoenn saga where May sees Ash's love for Pikachu as it recovers, and this triggers the change in May's way of thinking. Other than totally changing here opinion on Pokemon, Ash also helps her develop her battling skills to the point at which she comes 4th in her second Grand Festival, although Drew says that she battles too much like a trainer than a Coordinator, but she beat him. I think the most important thing that Ash taught her was that if you treat you Pokemon with love and respect nothing is impossible.

    As a person, May has become much more confident in herself and that winning isn't everything, that you can learn more from a defeat than a win (a loss just shows that you have room for improvement). Ash has also showed May that however important your dream is, helping other people brings happiness and the possibility of making new friends that will always remember you. Over all Ash has just boosted her confidence and awoken her compassionate side.

    In conclusion Ash has probably made the biggest impact out of everyone May has met in her life and she has grown much as a trainer and person due to Ash.

    And how do you think this has effected their relationship?

    When they first met I think May might have just wanted some company (although it did seem that she had a slight crush on him), but during their travels Ash became first her mentor and later her best friend. Through their journey not only did May learn from Ash, but Ash also learned from her in terms of Pokemon battling, and their friendship grew stronger, Ash was always her safety net and May stopped Ash from acting to rash as he was in the previous regions. In the Battle Frontier season Ash was no longer May's mentor, but this allowed their friendship to grow, and us as Advanceshippers believe that they eventually developed feelings for each other (9th movie), and as they travel apart these feelings grow more powerful.

    Last topic

    Do you think the picture of Ash and May almost kissing is real? And if you do, what would the fans say (Every shipper out their)?

    It is not real (although I wish it was) as discussed much earlier in the thread, although it does look quite convincing, they would never make one of the main shippings cannon, as it would make them loose a lot of viewers. If it was real all the other shippers, especially Poke, Contest and Pearl would probably stop watching the series.

    Looks like I wrote a lot.

    See Ya!

    Once again MERRY CHRISTMAS!

    I'm gonna start off by saying..

    Merry Late Christmas Advanceshippers

    I hope everyone had a great one. I'm sorry for being late but I wasn't on much Christmas day.
    I was really busy and stuff. But you probably don't care about that.

    What role do you think Ash has played in May's growth as both a trainer and a person?

    Hmm, I'd have to say Ash has played a major role in May's growth as both a trainer and a person. I mean, May didn't even like Pokemon up until she met him.
    Plus, Scott had even said that May's battle style was similar to Ash's. Brock also said that since May's been watching Ash battle, that she was influenced by watching him battle.
    So, yeah. I do think Ash played a major role in May's growth as a trainer and a person.

    through my eyes, I seen may kind of edgy in the begining of the saga, and I think Ash has turned her into a softer person. Like for example, May was very controling, and bugged the hell out of people who got in her way, but thanks to ash, I think he softened her up a bit. =3

    second, they hold such a powerful bond, as that they are best friends. They always watch each others back. Ash has taught May confidence torwards her competitions, always telling her to get up, when you fall. May has influenced ash in the matters of standing your ground when someone interferes with the person you care about, and how to have fun.

    all in all, they have both helped each other in so many ways. And have a lot to hold on to when it comes to friendship. They have a lot in common, when it comes down to both eating a lot when they are hungry, or both kind hearten, and open minded.

    well that's all! =3

    Okay, first off let me apologise for not having been around these past few months to moderate the thread. There are lots and lots of reasons, but I'm back now, so I'll be able to keep a closer eye on things now.

    But seriously guys, this thread has just become a mess. I am issuing the following people with warnings and I'm making them public so that you all know what to avoid in the future.

    MayKim, this is a classic one-line spam example. Textbook.
    dragontamer23, do NOT advertise in this thread, be it for your own work or someone elses. If you want to discuss a fic/fanart/whatever, linking to it is fine, but discuss it in the context of an Advanceshipping topic, don't just say "this fic is awesome". You also spammed here.
    Sp1derp1g, you should know to elaborate on your posts when you answer topics. Why do you support it?
    Gaiash, same goes for you.
    Cyber Blaziken, this is another example of spam. You answer one question without explanation, and say you'll answer another later. Just wait until you have time to write a constructive comment, otherwise it just seems like you're just trying to up your post count or something.
    Xcaliber680, this is an Advanceshipping thread; all topics should be directly related to both Ash and May, or, if about one or the other, every topic should be in reference to their relationship/potential relationship. This topic is not relevant on either count.
    InsomniacJinx, do not come purely to advertise. This would have been a perfectly acceptable post if you had answered the current topic in addition to posting what you already wrote, however.
    midnightjewelz, this is just spam... Nothing to do with Advanceshipping at all.
    poke master 13 and Dark Dreamz, you are both receiving two warnings. Your next strike will be a ban from this thread, so please refrain from posting one-liners like this any more. You should have been banned for all of the junk I found here, but since I wasn't around to warn you I'm doing so now. Please read the Serebii Forum rules and the rules on the first post of this thread to understand why these sorts of posts aren't acceptable:
    Exhibit A
    Exhibit B
    Exhibit C
    Exhibit D
    Exhibit E
    Exhibit F
    Exhibit G
    I'm being really lenient about this, but the current state of this thread is unacceptable. Please read the rules on the first post of this thread if you are uncertain of how things work around here. I will become more strict about enforcing these rules if nothing is done.

    Now that I've gotten that out of the way, let me answer our current topic.

    What role do you think Ash has played in May's growth as both a trainer and a person? And how do you think this has effected their relationship?

    Well, a lot of people see Ash as being the "teacher" in the Ash-May relationship. He taught her how to work with Pokemon, he showed her the ropes, and he's always looking out for her, which is half the cuteness of the ship right there. This most directly affected May as a trainer, but it also subtly helped her to mature as a person, as well - becoming more self-sufficient, less scared of the unknown and the uncertainty that comes with going on a Pokemon journey, etc.

    Because of all that they've been through I think May has come to rely on Ash a lot, but his personality and influence are such that she has also come to believe that she shouldn't be a burden on him, and since they have such similarly competitive natures (in a very friendly way, of course), this desire to stand on her own two feet has helped her fully develop into a solo Pokemon trainer, which I'm sure is helping May during her adventures in Johto right now. May truly wouldn't be the same person if she and Ash had never gone journeying together. In fact, I wonder how different things would be if she had never hung around with him during those first few episodes of Hoenn... Would she be the same May we all know and love? Somehow, I doubt it.

    Also, let's not forget that May has had a huge impact on Ash, as well. I think she calmed him down a lot more; he's a lot less aggressive now than he first was during the early stages of the Hoenn saga (before Pokeshippers gang up on me here, yes, I'm aware that he calmed down during the course of the Johto season, but I still think May calmed him down significantly during the early stages of Hoenn, too). So, I think it's been a mutually beneficial relationship for both Ash and May, and they've both helped each other to grow and mature and refine themselves as people.
    Good Love Charm

    There are these kind of rules here? Wow, its so different compared to bulbagarden...

    Do you think the picture of Ash and May almost kissing is real? And if you do, what would the fans say (Every shipper out their)?

    No, but I used to, and very much wish it was. I honestly felt very...Foolish for believing that it was real, the writers aren't going to make any main shipping canon, and I should of known that. Who ever edited it, was very skilled, and it was one of the reasons why I fell for it =\ The hat was out of place..I noticed that and thought something was wrong.

    What role do you think Ash has played in May's growth as both a trainer and a person?

    Ash played a massive part. He was a mentor, a teacher, a role model and an inspiration. if he hadn't met May at all, she wouldn't have loved pokemon as much as she did now, possibly hating them even more than she did back then. Her battling style was based off Ash's and by travelling with him, she got introduced to contests. Ash constantly cheered her on, whch probably boosted her confidence in herself.

    By travelling with him, she caught most of her Pokemon. If she hadn't been with Ash, she'll be clueless about Pokemon, won't have much Pokemon and her torchic would probably not have evolved =\ She'll be a wreck...

    If Ash made her a better person. She cares more about Pokemon, and would help anyone in need. She also starts to give out advice, and she got more calm with time around him. If May hadn't traveled with Ash, she wouldn't have met Drew, who made her do her best (To beat him of course).

    And how do you think this has effected their relationship?

    Their bond strengthened. As Ash decided to become her mentor, they probably spent time (off screen...I'm hoping) alone together, getting to know each other and stuff. Ash feels the need to protect her, I can't really explain this properly...
