Amourshipping Thread V3

    Well, I think it's fair to say that the ship is alive and well. Twitch just wrapped up a marathon of the entirety of XY, and the episodes the chat anticipated the most throughout XY&Z were Serena dressing as Ash and the kiss. Honorable mention to the Serena/Ash fight-and-make-up episode seemingly boosting stream viewership from around 10,000 to over 15,000 if I remember the figures correctly.

    Chances for that are extremely low and if, I don't think they'll ever bring that ship up again or tease it further.
    Out of the ship's fanbase... Serena is probably one of the most hated characters in the entire franchise.

    And I can't really see her appearing in Alola anymore... and Galar? Who knows. You have like 3 new Pokégirls in the mix for a short cameo in the Galar region... so Serena appearing became even more unlikely.

    BUT.... If they decide to bring her back one last time, then it should be a battle between her and the Galar pokégirl. Serena can definitely teach her some things after she travelled Hoenn by herself.

  3. I still do not understand why they did not give Serena a special episode. I mean each travelling companion of Ash received one (except Max and Tracey I believe) and Serena is quite popular in Japan. Are they planning something or are the writers done with Serena?

    Iris never got a special episode with Ash too.
    The writers are simply done with Serena at that point. That's what I think atleast.

    They screwed up big time anyway. With that scene from the airport... they have to bring her back at some point. NO, they MUST bring her back. It was the ultimate setup. The words she said to Ash, that one special scene... They somewhat set this up for a future relationship between the two... even though they probably never had the intention to do that.

    It's a very complicated thing and the writers definitely didn't do themselves a favor with it. People don't forget these kind of scenes.

    For Galar, I want for Ash & Serena to be married, have a daughter who wants to be like Ash and when she hears about Galar, she really wants to check it out. I had a theory that the default female avatar from the original Sun & Moon games was the daughter of Serena & Ash. I named her Luna instead of Selene because I thought Luna Ketchum sounded neater than Selene Ketchum plus Selene sounds a little too much like Serena.

    Yes, I really wish Serena has a Female Pikachu♀ near the place where Satoshi and Serena met for the first time in the Viridian Forest, Pallet Town.

    That would've been a really cute way to close out the XY series, actually. I understand why they did it the way that they did, but I still personally wish that Serena confessed to Ash in that clearing.

    I've already voted for a Kaguya Shinomiya nendroid, not sure if I can vote again.

    Best ship in the Anime with most development. That's all.
    The chemistry isn't one sided either unlike most other ships.

    Eh...I'd say the 'chemistry' bit is kinda debatable, it sorta depends on your own viewpoint. Some people think he had far better chemistry with Misty, May, Dawn...even Brock!

    I should rephrase my self. Ash and Serena has the best ROMANTIC chemistry.
    People who say he had better chemistry with other charcters like you mentioned, never watched XY to the end or prefer Ash x (insert some other girl).
    Ash and Dawn had the best platonic chemistry.
     
  14. I think it is nice that the ship is still popular. I dont know why other people not like it

    Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. If they don't like Amourshipping then they have their own reason. It's really not that weird to think that people don't like the ship. You can't have them all. Besides that, the more popular something is, the more it gets hated as well. That's quite common.

    On the brighter side, yes, Amourshipping is as popular as ever. We still get several fanarts and fan novels every now and then.

    What better way to rectify that than bringing her back. Contests were never a permanent goal. Galar must be close to Kalos, right?

    If Pokemon geography and real-world geography correlate perfectly, then yes, they would be right next to each other. In fact, if this is the case, we've already been to Galar. Kind of. It's complicated. Of course, there's nothing that actually indicates they're right next to each other in the Pokemon universe. They're free to put Galar on the other side of the world from Kalos if they felt like it. In real life, Serena could just hop on a train and cross the Channel, but it could be significantly different in Pokemon.

    tbh it's only one-sided, like every other Pokémon ship. Ash doesn't like any girls, and I doubt that's gonna change anytime soon.

    Then just go watch XY. Don't spit out things you don't know.

    The thing about this is that Pokemon pairings, especially with Ash, all need to be judged relative to one another. Of course AmourShipping looks one-sided, Serena was in love with Ash and Ash was too dense to realize it. That doesn't make a pairing non-viable, or at least, it didn't pre-XY. AbilityShipping was considered a reasonably popular, noteworthy pairing before Amour took off, by sheer virtue that a girl we hadn't seen for over 7 and a half years at that point had a crush on Ash for two episodes. Ash, meanwhile, couldn't even tell that Anabel was a girl, let alone that she was attracted to him. Hell, people still talk about GoggleShipping even today, despite Giselle having been gone for over 22 years, by sheer virtue that Ash found her attractive. That's how rare it is.

    So really, of course it looks one-sided and of course Ash is oblivious to everyone. That's how Pokemon has worked from episode 10 onward. It's not an AmourShipping issue or something brand new in XY.
