    They are, the kiss got brought up on two separate occasions this year alone. Other pairings don't get "shown support" because... well, they're fan inventions.

    In 2019, you mean? Or in the last 365 days? Still, you're right, it is quite impressive.

    In 2019, in the New Year Special and the XY part of the Pokenchi's anime retrospective. Both were brought up here.

    Not to mention this pairing has actual canon reference unlike the other pairings. By the way did anyone watch the Gen 8 promo there was a blonde trainer who challenged the female player to a battle which kinda looked like serena maybe her design was influenced by serena.

    Fan inventions? Well pokeshippers aren't gonna like your comment they still believe to this day that pokeshipping is still closest ship to canon.

    Does she looks like Serena?

    I mean, part of Serena's character is her admiration/feelings for Ash so I wouldn't be surprised if amourhsipping is still relevant and that "kiss", my Arceus, that's a record breaker for the entire Anipoke's history.

    You're not alone on this. When I first watched the Pokemon SwSh's trailer, I immediately thought of Serena when the "Lass" in uniform showed up.

    As a matter of fact, there's a couple of fanarts showing that. Here's a sample: https://twitter.com/sawakeny/status/1101086122728255488

    Well, not judging the value or trying to push for a ship war, specially because I agree, but one of the others is also an american dub invention.

    Not wanting to add any more fire to stupid shipping war but it is was few hinted in os-ag era (ani sub) that kasumi and Satoshi do have a feeling toward each others .

    It is interesting since the end of XYZ, Ash notices things like a "wedding" and "love" and understands them (a bit)

    Apparently, March 14 is Satoshi Day according to Twitter since I see this tag trending:

    #サトシの日

    I wonder why it's that particular day...

    Incidentally, March 14 is also a Japanese Holiday called "White Day," which is exactly one month after Valentine's Day. According to the article on White Day:

    Looks like Satoshi is going to have to give Serena a special gift in return.

    I didn't actually realize Satoshi Day was a thing. Why March 14th?

    I believe it has something to do with 3/14. Getting numbers based on your name is common in Japan from my understanding, and there's a Japanese wordplay called Goroawase.

    For example, according to Bulbapedia:

    So if we play by Goroawase's rules, we have three numbers for March 14: 314

    Based on the translation table:

    3 = sa
    1 = hi(to)
    4 = shi

    So 314 can read Satoshi (サトシ). Hence Satoshi Day. And just so happens to land on the day that Satoshi must give a gift to Serena if Serena gave him a box of chocolate on Valentine's Day.

    Didn't even knew that Goroawase thing existed. Quite fun.

    Shame I just see it today but since it's better late than never:

    Happy Ash day!

    So how is this goroawase's wordplay done and what would be the number of serena and some other characters.
