I know, imagine all the movie hints will get
Than that should make for some great comedy, say Iris is nearly about to do some thing crazy and it looks like she's in danger and Ash would be all "Wait!" And Iris could be all "I can hanndle myself thank you!" It'd be a different type of relationship if they did it this way. It doesn't look like shey'll have a bike, I assume they'll hanndle things differently if she doesn't. Maybe they'll just show she likes him for treating Pokemon so well or cuz of him being crazy about Pokemon like she is?? I don't knowXD That's one of my favorite scenes from Best Wishes preview, Ash's expressions when he sees its really a girl is priceless. Man I can't wait for Negaishipping scenes.
i'd say she's more like Layla from Winx Club or Katara from ATLA, Ash could be her Zuko, trying to save the girl while she can handle herself.
Honestly, if I were to compare Iris to anyone, at least by what I have seen of her, I would say Starfire from Teen Titans. Ultra sweet and kind, totally fearless just because she doesn't understand what fear is, not quite in sync with the rest of society due to her living outside of it for so long in the wild, and with a very strong sense of goodness and right and wrong, maybe even more then normal people because her views aren't jaded by what society has come to accept.
But then I have no idea what she will really end up like, only what I am hoping for and what makes sense with what little I DO know about her.
