Ok this is nice someone on reddit made an amourshipping version of the final OP
There's no such thing as Poke-Vegas anymore since the ousting of the Game Corners.And MGM Grand is on the lower end of Vegas hotels. It's better than Excalibur or the Luxor Pyramid, but there are a lot better (like Cosmopolitan or Aria). It wouldn't be my first choice.
It does have a nice view of the airport, though, which is great for plane watchers.
Why yes...I have been to Vegas WAY too many times.
Could you imagine an adult Ash and Serena in Poke-Vegas?
As things sit right now, I think you're right. The final episodes did nothing to help AmourShipping, but certainly didn't invalidate it either. Now, it'll simply just have to stand on its own merits.Amourshippig-wise, I stand to my own belief that it still has the high-ground in terms of shipping. While not fully canonized, it is still the closest that we can get for a romance involving Ash and the impact that it has to the audience will remain in the history of anime.
I think the realization of Ash finally leaving the anime is already dawning on me, not because of MPM, but rather the fan tributes. tbh, I feel that fans have more dedication in giving Ash one last hurrah more than whatever MPM offered, and that to me is enough to miss Ash so much.
It's the end of an era indeed and while not wholeheartedly felt in this series of episodes, the fact that many will miss Ash is what really makes it sad for me.

It's been a good ride and I don't really want to stay too negative in Ash's last moment as the main character and just want to send him off with nothing but good vibes. Until we meet again, Ash Ketchum.
Knowing how forgetful some of the writers are I hope it stays that way lolmost likely ship to happen in Ash's future.
This is a really great point, honestly. They didn't have much interaction, but she was still very much staring at his departing ferry for quite a long time. It's a nice farewell in a certain way.As I've said before, it's not about the quantity of time that matters. It's the quality of what you do with the limited time you have.
When Ash says goodbye to Misty, it was a simple wave goodbye while their Pokémon get more emotional of the farewells. Heck, even Brock's farewell to Misty is more engaging than Ash's. And with MPM being the end of our time with Ash, consider that we didn't really get a farewell between Ash and Dawn after the World Championship. Or that Iris was part of the Champion group that bid Ash farewell before the semi-finals. Or really any other companion that Ash waves goodbye to in Journeys. It's all casual goodbyes.
Serena's goodbye is that one that feels special because the time they actually have with each other is so limited that they have to make it the best and most memorable goodbye to each other. Declaring their goals and gazing at each other until the horizon separates them from sight.
That is how you know Amourshipping is still above the rest when it comes to the most canonical and most likely ship to happen in Ash's future.
I’ve been saying this from the start, this is the timeline where Giovanni wins and starts Team Rainbow RocketBut seriously even though Ash's journey is complete it still seems pretty incomplete. There are still a lot of things that deserved a closure like everything about Giovanni and team rocket.
Probably, they ran out of ideas for Ash to do in the anime so they likely are giving him off-screen treatment until the right time. Whatever the case, I do think this isn't the last we'll see of Ash. For now though, it feels like a goodbye to a long time friendBut seriously even though Ash's journey is complete it still seems pretty incomplete.
