    Amourshipping wise, it got toned down a little but Serena is still as popular as Dawn is. Heck, from what I can tell based on fanarts and fan novels, Serena is still gathering enough of them.

    I ordered the Ash-Greninja figure too and I definitely want this new Serena figurine so the two can be paired together on my shelf. The OTP will live on!
    I saw it was scheduled to come out the same day as the Lapras and Ash figurine for pre-order but apparently people are struggling to find it to order.

    Really? I find this hard to believe for some reason especially May. I think Serena still is above the rest in popularity and she has a strong following that won't change imo.

    I recently did a poll on Google Plus Japanese pokemon community. It may have less votes but here is the result:

    That's a pretty huge gap between Serena and Dawn who came in 2nd. I'm surprised to see that May got higher vote than Misty did.

    Anyway, we don't really need any poll/survey to tell us Serena's popularity. She won't be forgotten off so easily. She's made her own legacy in the anime and is one of the most well developed character. Amourshipping, hands down, will also be one of the most well known shipping in the Pokemon fandom. I mean, the kiss made a history and that is something that will mark in every fan's memory in the coming years.

    (BTW, I voted anonymously there and I think you guys already know who I voted, lolz)

    tbh her popularity will keep on decreasing as time goes . Amourshipping is not a canon, but has the most chance to happen. But if Ash never wins a league and keeps continuing his journey; after a decade or so, Serena and well as amourshipping will become more and more unpopular.

    I really doubt that, as I've said, Serena has become one of the most well developed character in anime and her relationship with Ash just stands out among the rest. Dawn and Misty are as popular as today as ever then so can Serena (even Poke and Pearl ships are quite popular today). I mean, Dawn and Misty are well known characters for how many years now due to the legacy they've made for themselves. Serena has also made a history for herself in the anime, being the first one of Ash's companions to actually met him during childhood, being the only girl so far to have been confirmed of having strong feelings for Ash and of course, her kissing Ash. Those are amour related samples and there are still more reasons outside of Amourshipping that made her character stands out among the rest. Her popularity will still stand out.

    Pearlshipping (or Dawn's popularity) was super high during the DP era as compared to the present

    There are plenty of articles online proving my statement is true. BTW I never said she isn't popular, I just said she isn't as popular as May or Dawn. BTW I like all 3 of those girls.

    Dude, you have to link these articles for us to see. Anyone can make a statement and say it's true, but it doesn't mean it is. I could say Serena will come back in SM 54, because something online said so, but it doesn't mean it's true.

    Truth is, we see a lot of Amour fanart still, and Serena still has tons of merchandise. But we'd need more quantifiable data to prove this stuff.

    Love in the Time of Teamwork
    Once every seven years there was a tournament celebrating the bonds between people and Pokemon. Of course, Serena expected Ash to want to take part, but she had no idea the ways in which it would change their lives for good or ill. She was confident, however, that by the end of that week, something between herself and Ash would be different. Amourshipping.

    Actually her popularity in Japan remains strong. I remember seeing a poll asking who they would like to see Ash travel with again and Serena was placed second only to Brock. Surprisingly Misty was third over May and Dawn as from what I understood she was not as popur there, as she was here, and Dawn's popularity was super high.

    Topic: Besides the Kiss, what was one of your favorite Amourshipping moments?

    Personally one of my favorites was when Serena threw the snowballs at Ash, as it showed that Serena would not be afraid to stand up to ash, when she felt like he was wrong. It also helped snap Ash from his funk that he was in.

    I won't argue much about Serena not being as popular as Dawn was (but there were times that she was on the peek of popularity as Dawn did). On the other hand, I don't think that May is as popular as Serena was. I personally loved May prior to Serena but her popularity was always overshadowed by Misty and Dawn. It was only until the early days of ORAS that her character have gained enough popularity but even then, she was still overshadowed by Serena. I'd really like to see these articles because I find what you've said hard to believe.

    It's the childhood flashback that really stands out for me since that's where it all started. My other favorite would be their second date (the one where Lumiose city was being rebuilt after TF's attack). While it wasn't addressed as a date, it definitely felt like an actual date (compared to the suppose "date" that they had prior) even for just a short while.

    Well I will admit she might not that popular anymore like during XY/XYZ airing day but that because the series already ended, but i feel she's still on the top (maybe? XD)
    here's the source,
    (From Dephender)
    Bandai held an online poll about Pokemon merchandise a while back whee we were, among other things, asked which characters we liked and would like to buy merchanidise for. One of the questions listed a bunch of potential products and asked us which of them we'd be interested in buying, one of which was "A music box that plays DreaDrea, featuring Serena in her Tripokalon dress and Nymphia dancing".

    So that upcoming Serena music box figure is specifically being made because people told Bandai they wanted one. That speaks a lot of her popularity


    the Poll ranking made by japanese bout asking who they would like to see Ash travel with again, and Serena was on top 2
    http://pokemon-matome.net/articles/138950.html
    https://s.animeanime.jp/article/2017/05/11/33827.html

    There was a ranking bout short hair anime and Serena was on top 18
    https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/int...e-girls/.94519

    and we have this Serena and Sylveon figurine to come out in few months

    and don't forget how Twitter explode during the last episode of Serena And Ash farewell scene xD , like Shoko Nakagawa said(one of the main host for Pokemon show) Serena change the history ( she said it on joking manner :P)

    But I'm not saying Dawn and May is not popular specially Dawn was my fav pokegirl bfore Serena, I still seeing lots of fan art of them on twitter

    I'd like to see evidence as others are posting their share of polls etc that's splattered across the internet to support Serena.

    I have a few tbh but I like the ones where Ash shows a different side to him. His walking to her when sick, giving her the Ribbon as a thank you, the second date where he read her worry by himself and took it upon himself to help her. Also the snowball scene was iconic and when he immediately postponed his gym run for her Masterclass.

    Honestly did not know about some of these but it's nice to see the variation in her popularity as well. It'll be hard for her to ever disappear imo as people are too fond of her (her fans anyways) and rightly so. She was amazing as an all round developed character.

    But Serena definitely is the most popular globally; you can't deny that fact.

    Might check that out. Serena is definitely the best female companion of them all for Ash.

    Too bad that kiss had to be censored because the writers weren't allowed to show it.

    So much all of these!

    I just want to add up this article that Kotaku made: https://kotaku.com/the-pokemon-anime...urn-1787786589

    Fanarts-wise, in Pixiv (Japanese art website), Serena surpassed May, Misty and Dawn, generating 7000+ artworks, whereas May got 4000+, Misty got 1000+ and Dawn got 5000+. Shipping-wise, the tag "サトセレ" (SatoSere) is the only Ash-relate shipping fanart that received a 1700+ fanarts, where Poke received 700+, Pearl 300+ and Advance 200+

    I'd still love to see an article that says Serena isn't as popular as Dawn and May were. I'm not going to deny the legacy Dawn has made even though I'm not much of a fan of hers and while May is one of my favorite Pokegirl, there's no denying that Serena is the more popular one.

    You are all feeding a troll... Even the biggest hater of Serena knows that she is the most popular even if he doesn't want to believe it (20 years anime poll , all the merchandises and a new one is coming soon in 2018 again with Sylveon , all the staff support like Shoko Nakagawa , Masuda etc)
    Now, the real question is : How long will she stay the most popular ? That's the real question and nobody has the answer for it , I don't think that a 7G character will top Serena's popularity , Lillie is popular because of her game counterpart not really because of the anime (that's my opinion, don't come at me Lillie's fans).

    That's the strange part , I don't get why they chose a Clemont special episode instead of a Serena one. Some will say it's because they are planning something for Serena , some will say it's because the kiss was Serena's final moment in the anime but nobody really know why...2018 will give a final answer imo.

    The 2nd date in XY&Z 45 and the fist bump in XY&Z 29.

    One moment that is really underrated is XY053 when Ash really paid attention to Serena when she was a bit lost because of her mother, it showed that Ash knows Serena really well and knew something was wrong in her mind.

    If I had to guess, it's because they sent her to Hoenn to become better, they would want time pass before showing her again so she'd do what she promised (be better for Ash and for herself). In a way the writers would probably want her to also be shown to improve for us as viewers too because they took extreme care with developing her.

    Quite surprising, really. I'm sure we'll see where the chips lie in due time. I can't imagine that Serena was just forgotten about, at least not this quickly.

    I am not a troll. Someone asked a question and I answered it for them in a nice way. I really like Serena as a character and was just trying to help a guy by giving him an answer to a question he asked.

    Wouldn't it be hilarious if there was actually poll data for this? In all seriousness, the "Who is more popular than who" discussion is one that we've been having ever since I started posting around these parts over five years ago, and I highly doubt it just started then. We're never going to know who is most popular, plain and simple. Even if we knew, I doubt we would stop fighting over it.

    I’m not liking this discussion about who is more popular and who is not. It is not relevant to Amourshipping at all. Stick to Amourshipping since it is the main topic, guys.

    Carry on.

    Speaking of Amourshipping, do you guys think that after finally going down the romance hole in Pokemon, would they ever try it again with another character other than Serena? Or do you think that she'd have to return to continue any possible romance? Personally I want Serena to return in a future gen (maybe 8?) and stay on as a permanent companion.

    Can we just end this popularity conversation. It is starting to get ugly. All I tried to do was help someone out by answeing their question. And then I get a bunch of posts back telling me I'm wrong. I have read plenty of articles online to give my answer. Oh and Heekful no need to bully someone just because you don't like what their saying. Anyway I didn't mean to start any arguments or drama. And lets just end that popularity conversation now. I like all 3 of the girls (Dawn,Serena and May)
