Amourshipping Thread V3

This movie reboot definitely sounds interesting to watch and it'll bring back the nostalgia for the people who watched the Original Series too.
Although this being the case, I hope that Serena makes a cameo appearance. Maybe not the current Serena but maybe when she was a kid.

My scenario would be:
Ash is going to Professor Oak's Lab to receive his first starter Pokemon. However, before he gets it, both him and Oak reminisce about the past. Remembering how Ash was always the energetic type and how he likes to help others in need. Prof. Oak will then mention his Summer Camp as an example where we will then see a flashback of Ash holding Serena's hand and supporting her balance as they head back to the lab. Ash then remembers that scene and wonders how she is still doing as he then proceeds to pick his first Pokemon.

I'd love to see that scene happen!!

Okay, are we REALLY back on the flower thing again? I see everyone saying it's a sign of either Serena's return or because the Japanese name is similar, Misty's return.

It's a continuity detail! Even as hardcore as we Amourshippers may be, we cannot possibly think this is a sign of Serena's return. The flowers were put in there as a message from Yajima at the end of XYZ to say "thank you" to all the fans and people who had given him this opportunity and watched all these years. That's it. Let's not grasp at straws, people, we seem crazy.

Who knows? But anyway, it is interesting that they did put a continuity detail considering how the anime tends to fck up the continuity everytime by forgetting everything once a new season starts.

Can anyone suggest some new fics to read?

They don't really screw up any continuity. Not really. They just avoid being overt. There were tons of pieces of continuity in XY, even if they weren't really in your face about it. And the details in the animation are usually very consistent.

Haven't read very many fics lately (shortage of good ones) but I'll be posting something in the next 36 hours (it's a little sad, though) and my collaboration with potat starts on Wednesday if you want to join in on a consistent update schedule for reviewing, ha ha.

Since player characters' dads are shown to be absent most of the time in both games and anime (Norman is an obvious exception). If they ever end up together and have a family, Will Ash do the same to Serena or will he stay and help her raise their child?
Thought I'd give my two cents on this one, since this interests me. I believe Ash would want to raise their child together. I'm not sure how much of this is my headcanon (seeing how we haven't gotten any mention of Ash's dad since what, OS2?), but I figure Delia raised Ash entirely by herself. I don't think Ash really misses his father, as he can't really miss someone who was never there, but when the time for him to become a dad comes, it may hit him that he has no idea how to be a father. Still, I think he'd want to be there for his kid in a way that his own father never was for him (and, presumably, how Serena's never was for her). Plus, with how much time he's spent around small children and the times he's raised a baby pokemon, I think he may find he's a bit better equipped to raise a child than he ever thought (I only say a bit because nothing really prepares you for raising a child). Besides, who wouldn't want to see veteran battered babysitter Pikachu help Ash and Serena raise their baby? :D

Out of the loop here, what's this flower talk?
There're Baby's Breath flowers blooming outside the Ketchum household in XYZ 47. Which, of course, has Westerners believing it means eternal love with Serena (because they're thrown at weddings), Pokeshippers thinking it's about Misty because the word "kasumi" is in their Japanese name, but in reality, Yajima said, essentially, that in flower language it's really him expressing his gratitude towards everyone through the whole XY series. They also retained them in the recent movie trailer, so it fuels speculation.

@TTBC Ash and Misty are hardly in the same region. Their houses are, but Ash is off in Alola currently. And this is a thread to talk about Amourshipping besides.

Oh Lord, what's up with Mr Period?

The flowers outside of Ash's house interest me a lot. It made sense if it was just a staff member saying goodbye, and it was only in XYZ47. But now that they're sticking around, well, I just don't know. It's quite odd, honestly. I can't wait until we get more previews, whenever that may be. There's a few directions they could take with this movie. Either it's a straight remake of the early episodes, which seems to be the most obvious, it's essentially an "Ash's last 20 years in review," which could be fun, or it's the first episode with some weird twist. There is one final option, and I only say this because they did indeed remember the flowers, but not any other changes to Ash's house like his display of items from the Diamond and Pearl series that made an appearance in the first and last episodes of Best Wishes. Yes, I do know he collected all of them on his journey, but the flowers were planted on his journey in Kalos, so who knows. Maybe, just maybe, it's about Ash's early adventures if his role with Serena in childhood was expanded, and she lived in Kanto instead of only visiting.

There are a lot of things it could be, but we also have to remember at the same time that the first trailer like this, usually has 0% of its footage in the actual film. So, maybe the flowers are there in the trailer but inexplicably vanish in the film proper. And I wouldn't call the director of a series just a "staff member". ;)

As for Mr. Period...I have no idea. Though Serena isn't aiming to win the Grand Festival, so it doesn't matter if she does.

Bravo, sir Manqoba! Very nice insight; it'd be pretty cool if your third prediction turns out to be true. :p

Boy, this thread started drying up faster than the desert recently. Guess our Amour book club idea fell flat on its face...inevitable with constant derailments, I suppose.

But on another note, as I'm sure most of you know, myself and potat_lasaro's collaboration had finally been posted! Hope you all get the chance to read the first chapter, and we always appreciate a good review! I'll also be posting it here, but for now, please enjoy "Ships, Schemes and Other Sweet Sights".

Would anyone say that Amourshipping is under threat from Aureliashipping after today's episode?
Even as a low-key Aurelia right now; Amour set the bar pretty high with a confirmed crush/off-screen kiss, so I wouldn't worry about Amour being 'under threat'.

Besides, your head canons can take the anime whether you think it should go. If you think Ash/Serena are the best shipping, then you ship them regardless.

I'm honest , I was worried when I saw that Omode was the writer but if she's not pushing this ship (she pushed Amour really hard in her first episode back in X/Y) I don't see which writer could push it (maybe Matsui?) so we are safe , if Lillie starts kissing Ash maybe we should be worried but now we are safe for at least 2 years until Serena's cameo (who is unlikely) happen.
Remember that's a comedy after all so there will be cute/funny moments but nothing really serious.
There was hardly anything "under fire" here considering one blush was from a compliment and with another she called her butler first. And why do you say Serena is unlikely? She was popular...ridiculously popular. This isn't an Iris situation, and the fact that she's yet to have a special unlike Clemont and pretty much every other main cast except for May back in the day makes you wonder...

Overreaction to Aureliashipping is still strong here I guess? :confused:

Imo Amourshipping will always be in the lead because unless Lillie or some other girl kisses Ash, there's nothing to worry about. There might be moments with other ships, but Amour has the strongest ones. Don't ever forget the ribbon also.

As for Serena making an appearance, like Epicocity said, she is riciculously popular and also polarizing. I'm in the camp that thinks Serena will make an appearance or we will get some news maybe around the end of March or in April (when the special music box comes out).

"Under threat." I didn't realize it mattered. We had our hints, and Aurelia will have theirs, and Aloha will have theirs, and BlueAngel will have theirs. As far as I'm aware, Serena came closer to a romantic relationship with Ash than anyone else did, and SM008 did not change that.

Pearl, Advance, BlueAngel, Aloha, Aurelia, Poké, Negai and any shipping are good allies to support AmourShipping canonized (be an example in many animes and stories).
Everyone are aware that at the end of the story of Pokémon (anime), Satoshi is going to stay with a girl, we have faith and hope that Serena is the wife chosen for Satoshi. Satoshi and Serena with their actions, words, emotions, concerns, happiness, feelings have shown to everyone, that they really love each other and are happy together. By work and grace of god (Arceus) is reality, as the happy endings that happens most of the stories of anime, manga and games.

Pokémon Movie 20th-Kimi ni kimeta! Serena was born in Pallet Town, she begins travels and story together to Satoshi and Shigeru. This would be Hypeepicclasic! for everyone because we are engaging the past and the present in the anime for a better future. I would also be in favor of many characters that we know or not know that they intervene for that movie for all fans.

Can you please source this information? As far as I'm aware, there has never been any confirmation about where Serena was born or where she grew up. However, it's implied that her interaction with Ash was limited to the camp.
