    Who is interested in this next week:


    Lana/Mallow's friendship is also underrated, remember they knew each other since they were kids.

    I can’t believe I forgot to mention the Trio. Probably the closest in the whole series lol.

    Also wanted to add Pikachu/Misty and May/Dawn.

    I admit to having a soft spot for Ash and Sophocles, maybe because I like simple vs intellectual duos that are NOT completely one sided or fall into one note cliches (eg. the simple guy being too dumb to live, or the intellectual being a contemptuous snob). The two have a surprisingly reasonable amount of mutual grounds despite Ash and Sophocles being on the opposite ends of the education and physical spectrums, and cases like Sophocles helping research Ash's Z Power or Ash getting Sophocles Charjabug are pretty cute. Plus a friendly and respectful jock and nerd duo is a rare treat in fiction.

    I kinda liked Ash and Clemont in very early XY for similar reasons, but then Ash got blander and blander and the chemistry faded. It never flanderised into the aforementioned stereotypes however, even as Clemont slowly became comic relief limelight wise, Ash saw him as his equal.

    Zoruagible Lover of underrated characters

    1. Ash/Brock/Dawn - The perfect friendship. Brock was the older brother figure to both(And to date he's still Ash's closest male friend) and Dawn is the best candidate to consider Ash's best human friend

    And the TRio of course!

    2. Misty/Max - Still the best and honestly only good interaction between old and new so far.

    3. Ash/Kiawe/Soph - BROS!
    Mallow and everyone. She's so precious

    4. Ash and Gary - Their friendship is magic... I really wish they'd bring Gary back already >.<

    5. Misty and Tracey - underrated ship pairing. If you've watched Chronicles they have a very great friendship and it's nice to see that as they didn't really have that much interaction with one another while they were with Ash.

    6. May and Drew

    Considering Gary missed both Kanto nostalgia 2-parters in SM, it's safe to say he probably won't ever appear in the anime again. I can't see him appearing for anything in the future if he missed Kanto nostalgia eps.

    Ash and Dawn - They have such a good bond.

    Brock and Misty - Both are gym leaders that traveled with Ash.

    Brock and Tracey

    Dawn and May - They're both great coordinators, and former companions of Ash.

    Serena and Clemont

    Cilan and Iris

    Ash and Gary - Interesting on how they became friends again.

    Ash and Ritchie - They both have similar Pokemon.

    That's all I can think of right now.

    Dawn and Ash have a great friendship and Pearlshipping is cool in general.

    And May and Drew’s friendship as well

    I'm starting to like the Ash and Lillie friendship now too.

    I like Ash's friendships with Misty, Dawn, and Lillie the most because they're all unique but they're handled well and they're believable. With Misty, they started off as basically enemies and ended up ride or dies whether they admit or not. With Dawn, they were so similar and they vibed well. It's like that one friend that you meet and click with from the start and form a natural genuine friendship. With Lillie, I love how much he helps her. I get big brother/little sister vibes in a way and I think it's adorable.

    Ash's friendship with Dawn was amazingly done. They really seemed almost like siblings than just friends and I liked that song that they did together during one of the Japanese openings (I forget the name).

    Now that SM is nearing its end,I would like to add Ash and Lillie's sibling-like friendship, with Ash acting like a big brother towards Lillie.

    do they even count as friends? even after their rivalry ended in johto they barely talked to each other and they seemed more like acquaintances than genuine pals.

    Poipole, Ash & Pikachu. They had a pretty great friendship. To be honest one of the best ones I've seen from the anime. Too bad the conclusion just wasn't satisfying in anyway. I wonder what kids thought of that ending. I'd imagine they probably just move on or something.

    As a group like i think that Ash with his classmates in Alolas has a really good friendship, everyones suportes each another in that group

    In a individual side Ash and Dawn has by far the best friendship and the best chemisry and is notable how Ash and Dawn cares each other even in BW Cynthia notices how Ash and Dawn bond is still strong

    Ash and Brock is strong too BROTP but i feel too that Ash Misty and Brock has the best trio chemisry, so bad that in johto arc that chemistry be lost a bit

    I lile the frindship between the three alola girls soecially the friendship between Mallow and Lana so strong

    In the pokemon side

    Piplup and Pikachu,
    pikachu and togepi,
    chespin and pancham
    Eevee and bunelby
    Axew and scraggy
    Piplup and oshawott

    Ash, Iris and cilan
    They all just completed each other, the group that has best chemistry tied with os gang, when they not afraid teasing each other but yet still support each other, i just wish their goodbye is more emotional

    Iris and dawn, i thought dawn girlines would contrast with Iris wild attitude but we got dawn become more livelier and they just like connect with each other
