Amourshipping Thread V3

Because i love serena and also because amour has the highest probability of being canon
If Selena had not existed, what would be your favorite pkgirl? or maybe you wouldn't be watching pokemon?

YEs, Morax, most of us get it, you don't have to become the teacher here. Everything you say is fine, but knowing that in the first place, why are you on a shipping thread? It's just a doubt
That's what I was going to say. While you're not wrong about Satoshi being the typical oblivious shounen protag, why say all of this in a shipping thread? XD

I mean they better have a good reason to bring her back and ruin what was otherwise a perfect climax to her character arc.

I can't imagine her coming back and ash being clueless again. That's a middle finger to continuity. But then again Ash is too immature and preoccupied with his goal to notice someone who yearns for him therefore it's pointless for her to return right now.

There's nothing more they can do with amourshipping other than to have ash accept or reject her. Unless they are ready to answer that question they better not touch serena.

As much as I do want Serena to return to Journeys, I do know that if she does, it kinda is gonna get ruined just because Pokemon is kid-friendly

But at this point, why is Pokemon TV-Y7 (at least in the US)?

Also, there are other TV-Y7 shows in the US that allow showing kissing youth and their relationships, for example How to Train your Dragon (The TV show version)
Although I guess they were teens, while Ash and Serena "are not"

Unlike the US, kissing is considered an intimate act in japan and is shameful in public. That is why you don't get a lot of kissing and relationships in anime aimed at kids because they save these acts for endgame ships only. Pokemon falls under the same category as Sazae-san, Doraemon and Chibi-maruko chan meaning it's family friendly so kissing on the mouth is a pretty big deal.

Oh...

At least it happened in the Kalos region, which is based on France

Honestly, I've known that Amourshipping wasn't one-sided since pretty much when I started liking it, so this isn't a surprise for me...

Maybe yes, maybe not, we only know that Ash has not entered puberty, so it is normal that he does not know what he feels

His reaction to the kiss was too childish, but it's obvious that he liked it XD

Although let's be honest, he acts more mature in XY and XYZ

Also, his age was never said in XY, so if you think about it, you can headcanon his age without ruining the real stuff

Although Journeys really did have to ruin it by stating that Ash is 10 again

Every time people say “Amourshipping is one sided” or “Ash is dense” I’ll hit em with this

"Ash is dense" is a valid argument because his feelings have been kept ambiguous ( a pretty common trope in shounen ) but to say it was one-sided is pure hogwash since he never rejected her. One-sided explicitly refers to unrequited love.
