    Serena probably won't get kidnapped, b/c something of that seriousness should be an episode in itself. It's probably a Pokemon that gets stolen or Ash's gift? Something to make him go all out badass by flipping his hat is bound to be serious. Also the Ash and Serena scenes are definitely worth getting hyped over :D. One scene i'm actually looking forward to is the hand holding attempt scene. We still don't know if Serena was actually successful or not. Also the Ash gift giving scene, and what Serena thinks about that, and what that gift actually is.

    It's TR we're talking about; they've kidnapped cast members before in even minor episodes, so I don't see why they can't do that here as well, especially since Serena has no way of fighting back.

    Its rather odd that people are acting like there's suddenly "so much shipping" in the anime when there's been some every generation.

    During Kanto/Orange Pokeshipping was pretty heavy, AG had a lot of Contestshipping in any episode Drew appeared, and DP had Kenny and Conway with crushes on Dawn.

    Then everyone ships every main girl with Ash anyway regardless of hints, so what difference does it make?

    Personally I wouldn't enjoy it being anyone's first date, as romance is not something I particularly care for within an anime that's based on magical monsters beating the living daylights out of each other..

    But since it's fairly clear that only Serena sees this as some form of ridiculous little date, while Ash is completely oblivious, I can accept it and continue happily without batting an eyelid at all this shipping nonsense.

    Idk it just feels like it would take a lot more time to find TR after they had kidnapped Serena, and we're only talking about 26 minutes or so of an episode here. Plus they didn't show too much about a potential kidnapping, except a flip of a hat. It's not impossible, but I just don't see this happening.

    I feel like the amount of shipping they're doing has something to do with the style of Kalos. Kalos being similar to France, and France being known for romance.

    Makes sense to me.

    The writers even made TR kidnap Sycamore -_-
    For an adult and a professor, I thought he'd be more cautious.

    Especially considering how amazing he is in the X/Y games.

    No I wouldn't because while I like the idea of Pokeshipping, I hate if the writers focus more on shipping than the actual catching pokemon.

    Answer me this then why did the writers after 5 generations finally decide to add a character that knew Ash (apart from Gary, Ash's Mom, Professor Oak) before the series started and have her become romantically attracted to him?

    During the sponsor message, for all we know Team Rocket may have kidnapped the Pokemon and Ash runs for Pikachu.

    I think that's what will probably be the most likely thing to happen, either that or they steal the presents.

    Oh yeah TR stealing all the present including Ash's present for Serena. He get angry and follow TR by alone through the forest we seen in the preview
     
  12. Well it's easy for you to say this right now, because this scenario not happening anyway :)


    Because they want to do something different in a show that's always the same? I still don't see how that's suppose to be a bad thing. If the show is still only about catching Pokemon in XY then I probably wouldn't be watching it.

    Even if the scenario did happen, while I would be happy with it I would also be a little disappointed because they would be adding a twist into the show to keep it fresh. I like the old saying "if it ain't broke don't fix it."

    I never said it was a bad thing I just said that it took 5 different generations to come up with a storyline like that.

    Y'know I halfway want to see how Ash responds to hand holding with Serena.

    Much friendship.

    I kinda agree, but there is a noticeable difference. Honestly, most of the romance stuff in the past generations was a-lot more side-bar than this. Where Serena's crush and retcon backstory with Ash were...Pretty much the entire selling factor of her being on the show. And they continue to use its presence in the marketing and ads, like the title of this very episode.

    Basically its first time they're actively trying to sell people some kind of pairing thing.

    Not that I expect it to go anywhere.

    What if TR steals Ash's gift to Serena? That's why he's so determined to get it back?

    That could happen though I imagine that they'll go after everyone's gifts as well.

    Maybe I'm delusional, but the trailer for the episode seems to imply that Ash isn't liking her in the way Serena loves Ash; so I am asserting to myself that this is a more comedic episode.

    That's pretty much what it is, a one sided relationship all in Serena's head.
