Man, it's been a while everyone. I haven't logged into Serebii for ages! With the rumors of RSE remakes getting stronger, my passion for Pokemon has been renewed! I played BW and DPP but I could never capture the same feelings I had while playing RSE. While it was saving Prof. Birch, beating the twins, or catching Rayquaza, I have yet to experience that feeling of really "being in the game", and I hope the remakes will help there.
I agree. I believe Hoenn was one of the best pokemon games ever. It just has this different feeling compared to BW and DP. I'm not saying they were bad games but there is just something with Hoenn that the creators have done and haven't done in the others. I hope they keep that same feeling with the remakes.
Most likely we will have news on the Hoenn remakes after BW2, tbh, i never expected a sequel to BW. I wonder if N will come back? *is super excited.*
Anyways, along with that comes a passion to write fanfiction. I truly believe that this is the truest, most believable ship ever - Misty seems like more of a big sister, Dawn seems like a little sister, and Iris seems like.. a mentor? Out of all the interactions Ash has had with a female heroine, the ones with May have been the purest, most intimate ones. From basking under the awe of the Millenium Comet, when Ash heroically risked his life to save Manaphy, and the Water Temple and May was clutching her heart, praying in the escape pod, or the many, many times people had called them a couple, they were probably the strongest team of all. We must carry on the legacy of advanceshipping, and make sure that it never dies out.
That means your going to finish Aura senses? I love that fic.
I see Iris as a good friend, she isn't a mentor like Misty is. Her and Ash are pretty much on the same page. Yes, i agree. Ash acted so different with May, he was mature yet funny. In Sinnoh, he was mature, in BW is funny. I love pokemon because there was a mixture of Ash's maturity and his funny lines and actions. I miss that Ash so much.
"A good friend left me and, I miss her, every day... but I... I know we'll always be friends forever!"
That's from movie six? the dubbed version right? silly dubbers, they only added that. It was never mentioned like that in the jap version.
We can safetly say this about a few things - The Advanced Generation Anime, May as a main character, Hoenn, Brock, but most importantly the golden age of this ship. Let's work to bring that age back to life.
