Well, yeah, we didn't have a whole lot of competition then. I get the impression that Amour is most popular in the current Pokemon community, while Poke is more popular outside it. I do think Amour will remain popular, though, since there's absolutely no other way you can interpret Serena's feelings. And because she actually kissed him.
I'm a pokeshipper still here and I like to say one thing is that Ash did got a kiss on the side of the left cheek by Melody during back Pokémon movie 2000.So Serena's not the only one or hers came first.
