Post Ash ships.
Pics that are pretty cute, etc.
Of course I know what I ask for.
Ash works well with his lady friends.
All dem Ash pairings need more love.
Look at this thread with Advance/Amour pics so far. Works on my theory that all Advanceshippers started to support Amour because of the similarities between the two ships and the way the girls interacted with Ash.
From what I can tell, the issue lies with May's Japanese VA. She's had problems with her voice for several years now.
Didn't Iris get a proper send off with an extra Best Wishes episode around the same time XY started?
Most likely sailed, but truth is, we don't know.
It doesn't have to be Advanceshipping, but it's the most I have.
Poke wasn't represented at all in this thread, so here's one.
Any pics of shipping Ash with Kanto fem had she appeared in anime? This is best I have
>not noticing that's Serena cosplaying as Leaf/Blue/Green/Whatever the fuck you think her name is
I was fooled at first too... Just was to tell him that.
Yeah sadly it's not her, only a cosplay by Serena. I wish she made a cameo in anime.
I only saw her anime styled in fanarts... Which are scarce.
Kinda related, what do you guys think of Red x Misty?
Here's something similar, but the other way lol
>Only one Pokeshipping picture
>Lots of advance and amour
My kinda thread. Could use more Pearl and Negai tho
My Pearl folder's a bit lackluster sadly.
All these Ash shipfags always destined to be BTFO by the show's formula. Thank Shudo. :^)
>Frogposter doesn't know what fun is
The fact that most of these are Advance from after May was off the show is telling. People like it despite it not being canon.
But continue to be this butthurt.
I'm honestly surprised there's still Advance art made recently. You can tell because they have May in her ORAS clothes which didn't exist till 2012, or older fanart with Ash in his DP or BW outfit interacting with May.
Advanceshipping fell under the radar in recent years due to Pearl, Amour and Contest. Its surprising it still has a following.
Oi, how is Contest doing these days anyhow?
I never bother with it. The ship used to be a big "rival" back in the day from what I vaguely remember.
It's hugely popular on Tumblr, which celebrates it with a week in July, much like they do with Pokeshipping (which starts next week, sure enough). Contrast with Pearl which had a single day and Advance and Negai which barely have enough attention paid to them there for anything.
The Pokeshipper Bias is strong.
There is a ton of Contestshipping art out there. Like legions.
I'd wager to say its the most popular non-Ash ship in the series. Like of all non-Ash ships, Contests is probably above Rocketshipping or Dawn's other pairings with Zoey or Paul, etc.
Huh, I see.
I don't really bother with tumblr so that might explain my lack of exposure I guess.
I just lurked. I was pretty young at the time.
The debates were one sided at the time I think, but the other Ash ships were still fairly young.
Well back then we also didn't know May would leave the show. You have to remember back then we didn't know there would be a new female every series, so people expected May to last longer than she did.
Also back then Misty fans really thought Misty would return too. lol.
I still don't really understand why Misty never returned, nor was even shown. So many people wanted it.
Brock lasted series more than her, which was surprising. They could easilt accompany Dawn and Ash with some other traveler.
*nor wasn't even shown since Advanced series
I remember people interpreting the opening the card with his mum and Misty that she is an important person to him (maybe even a love interest) and will surely return, lel.
>nor was even shown
She was part of flashbacks in BW.
They have no reason to show Misty anymore, pretty much. Her AG cameos were the sendoff for her character.
Funny thing is we didn't know that back then, so people were expecting more of Misty but it never happened. I remember when DP was airing a lot of people really did think Misty was guaranteed a cameo at some point. We all know how that went.
Out of sheer curiousity, how do people usually detect Scott? I was never too into the Serebii forums.
How has Pokeshippin' been doing over the years from your perspective?
It seems to be fine on certain websites but everywhere else it's dying you say?
At this point Pokeshipping is just something people reminisce about from their childhood who stopped watching a decade ago.
Most pokeshippers you see online are people who haven't watched the anime since Misty left, so to them its just a childhood show that ended to them when Misty departed.
I'm a huge Mistyfag (even tho I like Blue more), but I liked May, also surprisingly Iris (quite fond of the BW season, mainly because WHAT IT COULD be, not how it turned out to be), not too fond of Dawn or Serena (or gen 4/6 overall), I was surprised when I heard Ash's new companions will not be Tierno, Trevor and Shauna.
I like the fact they tried to modify Serena more (last time it happeend to player characters was Jimmy and Marina), but don't like how they censored her (lower bust) and absolutely can't stand the new hairstyle and costume. Also hate the forced down our throats ship during this season.
I think I'd ship Red/Ash and Misty, my favourite version of her is probably the Special incarnation, Dengeki Pikachu being close second.
Is this rare?
Red/Ash x Misty
Silver x Blue (in every incarnation, not only manga)
Jessie x James (mainly due to Dengeki ending)
Ruby x Sapphire
I think I'm fan only of those, not any others. Mainly because only those had any basis (even tho Ash x Misty more like dub/musical wise, not rly planned by creators)
Only relevant to the thread picture I could find, sorry. I had Red x Misty in my folder but can't find it.
I ran out of GaryxAsh so I started ClemontxAsh.
hopefully some art will be made for this one soon
I never got the deal with pairing Ash with his bro for the season. Like, his rivals? Great. The pokegirl? Expected, and usually pretty cute. But the bro? Heresy!
Kinda surprised that this image hasn't been posted yet.
>Misty: "After all this time..."
>Serena has known Ash the longest even before he became a trainer
I like how she was a bitch to him
That's because she was in love with him
because Clemont is in love
I tend to reminisce about AG every now and then too.
Have some Red/Misty
What about other girls
Ash won the heart of a leader of the Battle frontier.
I mean. Cmon!
Pokeshipping will never die.
>not posting the absurdly big edition
Looking at all these Advance and Amour pics side by side, how can anyone not notice the similarities? Obviously Serena has a huge crush on Ash, but I can see why so many Advanceshippers gravitate toward Amour. Its like a throwback to AG.
I'm surprised that DiodeShipping is so popular, I would have assumed it would be one of the odder ships in my collection
Y'know, for someone who collects weird ships, I don't have much for Ash or Red... might be because they are dudes...
The only concrete evidence of Ash and May having feelings for each other is this gif.
Everything else is just speculation and or cute stuff, like other ships.
>all the shots of May grabbing onto Ash don't show him in a very enjoyable position
>meanwhile Serena grabbing onto him has him in a good mood
"Luvdisc live in shallow seas in the tropics. This heart-shaped Pokémon earned its name by swimming after loving couples it spotted in the ocean's waves."
>This heart-shaped Pokémon earned its name by swimming after loving couples
>AFTER loving couples
The gif doesn't have the Luvdisc doing that. If anything, that's kind of killing the concrete statement you made.
One of the more recent XY episodes has a point where Ash unambiguously looks up Serena's skirt.
I'm not even talking about the camp episode from way back when when he's on the ground in front of her as she kneels: they fall down a pit, and even if you look at the surrounding frames, it becomes obvious that Serena is falling head-first and makes no effort to hold her skirt closed, while Ash and Pikachu fall behind her while looking straight down at her.
May showed off her midriff and breasts so much, if I were Ash I would have tapped that since day 1.
They weren't smart enough to use a Pokemon costume to get his attention long enough.
Dawn used the Piplup costume for that Contest dream she was having and Misty was in the Goldeen outfit because of being a magician's assistant. Ash didn't bat an eye at Dawn in her costume and Ash makes fun of Misty in it.
I've actually never visited /y/. I bet it's pretty chill.
One of my personal beliefs is that kids shouldn't really decide their sexual orientation until they reach a certain age. You see a lot of 13-year-olds claiming to be gay or bisexual but I think it's just a product of the media.
Does that mean if I was someone else then kids wouldn't be gay?
Hm, weird how it took five posts for somebody to mention this.
What are the worst pairings, in your opinion?
There aren't any gay ships because ash isn't a fag. Go fuck yourself faggot and take a trip to >>>/y/
How do you know Ash isn't at least bi?
Also, I'm not gay~
Then wouldn't it be more non-gay accessible?
You seem to have made a bit of a mistake in your post. Luckily, the users of 4chan are always willing to help you clear this problem right up! You appear to have used a tripcode when posting, but your identity has nothing at all to do with the conversation! Whoops! You should always remember to stop using your tripcode when the thread it was used for is gone, unless another one is started! Posting with a tripcode when it isn't necessary is poor form. You should always try to post anonymously, unless your identity is absolutely vital to the post that you're making!
Now, there's no need to thank me - I'm just doing my bit to help you get used to the anonymous image-board culture!
I don't think I've made a mistake... and I think the users of 4chan would rather do anything than help me, given my experience with them. I think if my identity truly had nothing to do with the conversation then you wouldn't bring it up so much... and if it is poor form, then it reflects anonymous' blunder more than my own. Not to mention that this sort of thing is subjective and I've seen lots of tripfriends who've carved out certain "niches" get harrassed regardless.
Pretty much a good chunk of XY.
Well, they did give him a waifu already. He invites Serena to join him when he's never invited anyone to join him before.
Brock, Cilan, Clemont and Bonnie, and Dawn ask him if they can join him. Misty, Iris, and Tracey force themselves along, and May coerces Ash to join her using the bike while Max just gets forced onto him.
With all these ships around, I have to say it. No matter ship it is, it will mean the end of the anime if it gets canon. Having a strong relationship is one of the steps that are needed in order to grow up. If the ship gets canon, then it's going to be the last episode, that will probably end with a flash forward with Ash's kid going on his own adventure. So you better hope this won't happen if you want the show to go on.
I've honestly seen some Pokeshippers say online they would commit suicide if another Ash ship becomes canon.
And no, I'm not joking. I really did see at least two people say that over the years. These people are fucked up.
At this point nothing else. Pokeshipping is long dead, and May/Dawn didn't really have a canon crush on Ash in the anime.
Its either Amour or nothing. Most of us shipped May or Dawn with Ash before Serena existed because we had no idea a girl with a canon crush would be introduced. That and we liked their interactions.
