Yeah, pearlshipping did the same for me too in regards to being a shipper. As years past for me, I started to be open with different shippings so now I'm a multishipper -shot-. As for Hikari leaving, yeah I see how Satoshi has treated other girls that have traveled or are traveling with him. I've never seen Satoshi close to any other girl but Hikari. I hope he can share the same closeness if she ever visits .
Second I don't believe that Brock is a Penguinshipper. I think that he was giving a loser of love tips of love. Second He never said Dawn's name so how you know that was the person Kenny liked was Dawn.Pokemon USA made it a totally Penguinshipping episode.Even though The shippers in Japan said that she turned him down.
I know that. I know that most Pearlshippers are Pokeshippers or Fortuneshippers. I agree with you Robert. I hate when they don't have a good reason.They keep saying "AshXMisty FTW!!!" Or "Dawn is a **** Misty is better" Or" Ash is like 20 years old."
I know what you mean and I think after Unova is done and over with Dawn should/could come back for the champion league if the writers don't forget that. Anyways it was nice speaking with you, leave me a VM whenever you want to talk. So later and peace out.
