During the first film, where Ash is revived, say hypothetically that Misty confessed to Ash afterwards and then Ash says he feels the same way. Then Mewtwo does his thing where he wipes away everyone's memories of the events in the film. How would you have reacted, and what effect would this have on PokéShipping?
This is something new, and I feel like discussing this ^^
How would I have reacted. I don't know.
At the time, I pretty much was interessted in battling, training my pokés in the Red version and seeing Mewtwo in action. I didn't care about Shippings then xD
If I had cared then, I don't know...It may have been a childish reaction, I would have ranted on, saying how it wasn't fair...like a kid would lol
Now, when I consider shippings, I would have just felt like I was right !
Since if Misty had confessed, she didn't know Mewtwo was about to wipe their memories.
She would have wanted then to life on with Ash knowing she cares ! And that would have made PokéShipping canon (whether you consider movies canon or not is irrelevant at the moment).
On the moment, like I just said, I'd feel really really happy and proud, since she confessed and was willing to live on with it. Alas, wiping her memory away would not have given her the chance to witness Ash rise from the dead, and therefore might still keep her feelings for her, and go on like the movie ended (Since the events have been erased from their minds, confession or not. What happened before didn't matter.).
Then I'd feel, again, disappointed, since I felt that would be like they hit a major "reset button" in the plot xD
But meh, I'd remain hopeful, since I'd know she confessed once, that means she likes him.
When she confesses, that's a matter of time =)
Glad to give my piece of mind ^^
By the way, the thread look clean and well groomed, good job And no one-lineers, yay ! ^^
