Well her ribbon was missing, the one Ash bought for her. Everyone thought she wore the ribbon on her ankle but turns out it was actually a bracelet she wore in previous showcases. That’s when I knew her journey with Ash was retconned.
That is one very big leap in logic there, the whole ribbon thing has been talked about to death. She most likely still have it in her possession.
Also where's this whole man hater thing coming from?
