Amourshipping Thread V3

Since we're arriving to a big moment to this shipping, I think this topic is going to be nice-

How much did you enjoy Amourshipping so far?

Well, Amourshipping has actually meant a lot to me in these last couple of years. I believe it's the first time I've shipped two characters so hard (maybe since GohanxVidel), and I actually enjoyed the hints they gave us. Now I pretty much accepted Amour's fate, but it will always be a great memory for me. I would've loved if we had actually seen more development of their relationship, but it's Pokemon, that can never be forgotten. For now, I'm ready to enjoy the last three episodes of Serena and Ash together (even if only XYZ45 is focused on Amour), and hopefully they will give us a decent closure.

Even though I arrived to this ship quite recently, I enjoyed a lot looking for hints on selected chapters and in the Diancie movie; I enjoyed Amour mostly because it is something new on the series, the cuteness of the situation and because it has brought very good Fanfics to read.

I needed to watch the entire series in 3 weeks, that excited I was :D. I enjoyed every second of the series, even the fillers. I still don't know why they planned to make a crush on a companion. It's very anoying if they are gonna drop it at the end. I really hope tommorow gives us a good ending, but I don't want to raise my expectations.

And also, tommorow I will probably be not here because of the salt I expect. I will just try to watch the video and not to break down emotionally.
Have a nice day!

Hey , so hyped for tomorrow , I was in a little break until thursday.

https://twitter.com/omodeakemi/status/786279287418564608 Anyone can translate this ? When I translate it seems like Omode is saying that's the last time she does a screenplay and the last time for Serena too , is that mean that's the last Serena's episode ever ? No Amourshipping anymore ?

It is already a known fact that XYZ45 is the last episode Omode wrote for the XY series. That's not a huge deal considering the fact that there won't be more than 3 or 4 episodes after it. It means nothing for the outcome of the episode, the outcome of Amour, or Omode's future at TPC.

Mostly not the end of Serena's time in the anime! She will see Ash again. Serena's last time on the show? That's just a fabrication. The staff tend to make fools out of us but we won't fall for it this time!

Don't forget that staff are just as subject to NDAs as anyone. Regardless of how Serena's role and Amourshipping in the anime turns out, the writers can't say a word if they don't want to get blacklisted. So, keep the flame of hope alive!

I just need to say some stuff. I'm getting extremely annoyed with this thread now. You guys have been warned several times about the spam and the off topic posts in this thread and I'm getting really annoyed now.

Stay on topic. The topic in this thread is Amourshipping and only Amourshipping, that is the only topic you will talk about in here. Next time someone has to message me about this thread and how bad it is getting, this thread will meet the same fate as the two previous thread except this time, it will not be getting rebooted.

This is your last warning.

Ery can you give me an example of spam and off topic responses? I really wanna know cause I don't think I see much here. We almost always stay on AmourShipping...

Anyway, yeah 45 is an extreme AmourShipping episode and it's no surprise Omode is writing it. I bet it was her plan all along ;). Some quality Ash and Serena hints expected.

Read the 1st post of the 1st page. It's not that hard, is it?

Anyway, Masuda really has no control over the anime. Anyone can be an amourshippers from TPCi but Masuda does not decide how the shipping will turn out. Tomioka has more control over the anime

It's funny how literally everything in large corporations/companies have non-disclosure agreements for literally everything. I wouldn't be surprised if Omode is actually trying to convey something to us, but is actually held back by potential lawsuits and whatnot. $0.02.

Anyway, back on topic: just over 12 hours away, and the episode airs. Dunno if I said this before, but I'm surprised that the entire Amour subplot didn't get cut off during the first two seasons. Initially, I thought it was a test run for relatively "controversial" topics in Pokemon, but it just kept on gaining momentum.

Not that I'm complaining, of course.

Also, let's try to not shut this thread down. It's kinda funny but also a bit embarrassing to have 3 threads for the same topic be shut down. :p

If we kill this thread in only 65 pages, I'd be amazed.

Honestly, my first reaction to A Battle By Any Other Name was something along the lines of "What the hell are they going for? Are they really breaking that rule? But it's so clear, she actually likes him. It's not just us reading too far into it."

XYZ45 is not the finale. But, it will indeed be the defining moment of Amour, the resolution of a buildup that we've been waiting on for 3 years now.

There's a saying in Zulu. "Kuzulonga ukuthi nini asazi." "Everything will come right in the end, and if it doesn't, it's not the end."

Is there any type of hints Amourshipping lacks or has too much?

Well like Red Pheonix already quote me on, MORE ALONE TIME TO TALK! That's the ultimate lack in Amourshipping (besides a direct hint from Ash). Also, Ash has his gym battles, Serena has her performances, another cool thing would've been to see them train/practice together. Don't ask me how, I just like the idea of it. As for too much, I'd probably say Serena's blushing like everyone else.

How much did you enjoy Amourshipping so far?

I've enjoyed it a lot. It's one of the elements that brought me back into watching the Anime again. For someone who has casually watched Pokemon and is an older fan, it's an element I wasn't expecting to be added into the Anime and when I seen it, I was drawn into it. I just simply liked the idea that Ash could have a potential romantic relationship with a Pokegirl.

Some people might say that they don't have much chemistry, but I respectfully disagree. Their chemistry can be pretty good at times, the problem is that it can be subtle. To elaborate, just look at the way they have treated each other. There's respect, trust, they listen to each other, and they care about one another. Whenever Ash acts up, becomes reckless, or has a breakdown, Serena was there to remind and help him. Whenever Serena needs motivation or confidence, Ash has always been there for her. He helped her at first to realize that it's ok to not know what you want to do with your life just yet. He's also instilled the "never give up" attitude in her as well. Now that makes it look like that Ash has been a great friend to her, nothing more, but the thing that always made me think that there could be potentially more going on within him, was the few uncharacteristic things he did for her (like putting his gym battle on hold for an example). I'm not going into every detail, but those are the main points.

As for the state of this thread, my only advice to people is to re-read your posts before you make them. If they don't have anything to do with Amourshipping, don't post, it's that's simple. Remember this for tomorrow's episode and future discussion.

Lol that's funny and cute at the same time. I especially like her reactions throughout that strip especially near the end of it xD. Maybe if she somehow returns during the school thing in the anime that something like this could happen. Maybe something like that could happen with Sophocles or something.

Oh the horror

More fights. I'm not asking them to fight every second episode, but more conflict between the two would be better because conflict management is the key to all relationships.

Did Ash and Dawn ever have a legitimate fight episode? I know Ash and May did, and Ash and Iris and Ash fought with Misty and Iris every two seconds. Then on the Amour side there's Seeing The Forest For the Trees. I'm just drawing a blank with Dawn for some reason.

Daw and Ash ahd some minor bickering but they were truly nice and suportive of each other 99% of the time.

I guess tomorrow is going to be do or die for the ship's future. I'm still hopeful Serena can join Ash in Alola despite the status quo. I somehow even had a dream last night with the XY cast in swimsuits in Alola so I'm hoping part of it is prophetic. It'd be really wrong of the writers to drop Serena's crush on Ash completely without so much as a confession. I'm a bit more hopeful after the Cubs win last night, but status quo is still pretty hard to overcome so let's hope they go the extra mile with those two.
