Alright, maybe I worded it wrong. The past is still there that supports evidence. That fact will always remain, therefore Pokeshipping will never die.
But the future for further hints and contact between Misty and Ash is bleak. Sure, they could sneak her into a few episodes. But from what I've heard they neglected her in the D/P series. If they started to neglect her, it can only continue to get worse.
I guess as long as the anime is still alive, there's always a chance for occurrences. It seems like Pokemon will never die, so that's a good thing... but the bad thing (IMO, at least for Pokeshippers) is that they always start fresh for each new adventure. They could return to their roots but they just don't want to. They'd probably prefer to just replace Ash all together than bring back Misty.
It's a bit mistifying (heh pun), because they keep Team Rocket and they kept Brock for the longest time. The one character that had an interesting development with Ash they replaced. That just shows they want Ash to fly solo and not have a major love interest for the long term of the series. Maybe they didn't want to get too involved in a side miniature love story.
I believe us pokeshippers are the minority in all this. Yes, it's the biggest shipping community, but the writers and producers have a much bigger audience of non-pokeshippers and people who just don't care about that. Although I guess that doesn't really matter.
Besides, the hints of pokeshipping aren't as abundant in the Japanese anime from what I've heard. Maybe I'm being way too negative about this and there very well could be a bright spot in the future. Who knows? Anything can happen, especially in a long running anime. Good things come to those who wait. I'd just rather it happen sooner than later because I'm gettin' old. (19) :P
blondekid15, do you have a video of the original Japanese trailer?
