Hello. Are you doing well these weeks leading up to Christmas? I may not necessarily be up to speed regarding Pokémon Best Wishes, but it would appear that Pearlshipping has become one of my models for romantic friendship in Japanese cartoons, in that the anime couples I'm willing to support typically share the same basic dynamic that Ash and Dawn do. In the case of pairings from other shows, my attention has turned toward Nigel Uno and Rachel McKenzie from Codename: Kids Next Door as a model for cartoons overall. Suffice it to say that I don't like choosing romantic pairings on a whim.
