Top Ten Reasons to Hate Amourshipping


The Top Ten

1 It's just fanservice for XY

I honestly like about shipping. Nevertheless, it contributes very little to the overall series. Taking it away would not effect the quality of the series st all. Advancedshipping is a great shipping because the chemistry between ash and may was what drove their mentor and student relationship. Pokeshipping is a great shipping because it helps to reflect on Misty's overall character development. Pearlshipping is a great shipping because the overall pure friendship between ash and dawn served as real contributions to the plot. Lagomorphshipping is a great shipping because it is adorable. PikachuXTogedemaru is also a great shipping because it is also adorable. Also, all of these shipping's have a much more tolerable fanbase than amourshipoing, for the record. Of course, they still have all still have far more than they're fair share of aggressive people. Especially pokeshipping. No offense.
Shipping as a whole is just sometimes an annoying thing that just leads to arguments half of ...more - HeavyDonkeyKong

I almost gag at the very thought of that shipping. Expecting Delia to date her kid? Who is she, Donald Trump? (reference to the list of Craziest Donald Trump Quotes). - HeavyDonkeyKong

Although "bait" would be a much better word. - yungstirjoey666

Ugh, I regret making this list - yungstirjoey666

2 The fanbase

But yeah, judging by the fanbase is a dumb way to hate something - yungstirjoey666

The way they treat Ash X anyone but her shippers... The less we say, the better.

A fanbase does not make a ship terrible. Besides, I've only seen a few bad Amourshippers; I've seen worse Pokeshippers. - Yungstirjoey

3 It ruins Serena's character

Well her character was awful from the very start but this is a good list

4 They're only 10

That's not a legitimate reason to solely hate Amour, but rather a reason to hate all ship. - Yungstirjoey

Althogh this applies to all other ships with Ash, so this reason is irrelevant.
What I am annoyed with is how they make the excuse on how they're "16" or whatever. - yungstirjoey666

Well, the original writers say that he is ten, apparently. This fits perfectly. 10 in the original 11 in advance.12 in dp. 13 in bw. 14 in xy. 15 in sm. How does that not flow perfectly? Also, it. Makes much more sense. unless hooh made him into an immortal god or something like that, I am officially absolutely BS on his age.

In any case, I've seen plenty of preteen couples when I was in middle school before iirc. And ten IS just below the middle school age, iirc. - HeavyDonkeyKong

5 They don't have much in common

"but they both like Pokemon! "


6 Pokemon is a show meant to be aimed for 6-year old boys (girls watch it as well)

Same point as I stated for number 4 - Yungstirjoey

But plenty of kids shows have romance in them. Also, there are some sagas in the anime that are very questionable for kids. The latest example of course, being the team flare arc.

Don't even get me started on how dark how dark that the sun and moon anime series will probably be if it even remotely follows the games lolol in my opinion. - HeavyDonkeyKong

7 They have little to no chemistry together

It's just Serena crushing on Ash. Ash showed more interest in Dawn more than he ever did anyone. The whole Amourshipping thing is one-sided. If Ash liked Serena that way, then he would've asked her out long ago. Seriously, though. Serena sucks, as does Amourshipping. Just like Videl in DBZ was a completely pointless and bland character who didn't belong with Son Gohan. Gohan would've been better off with Erasa because she's nice and not a bullying tsundere who can't back up all her talk, and Ash would be better off with Dawn because they have a camaraderie AND a chemistry, unlike that yandere who got lost from Higurashi and ended up in Pokemon. Seriously. Amourshipping sucks.

8 Serena creepily followed Ash after 5 years of barely knowing each other

She kept a handkerchief from a single good deed. And apparently loves ash from it. Wut. - HeavyDonkeyKong

9 The disturbing crossdressing episode

I honestly think Serena was surprisingly pretty in Ash's clothes. Which is very messed up. ITS LITERALLY A GIRL IN A BOYS OUTFIT! - HeavyDonkeyKong

10 It's overrated

Debatable. This site has taught me that both sides of the war (both loving it and hating it) are vet darn brutal in my opinion no offense though lolol though. - HeavyDonkeyKong

Bad reason to say something is bad - Yungstirjoey

The Contenders

11 It's the only reason why Serena is popular

Sadly, this is true. I've seen people come up legitimate reasons for liking her beyond ship bait. I myself also have my own very darn different reasons for liking her. But the problem is, about roughly about 90% of her fanbase only like her because of her crush on ash. - HeavyDonkeyKong

I bet Serena for Alola would never exist in the first place if Serena never even had a crush on Ash. - yungstirjoey666

12 It's forced

Serena for alola is a sheer pile of pure stinky garbage trash hoarded by a white wolf with steel fangs. Misty and May have followed ash to other regions before. But they were never a main character for more than one series. Iris never even came back at l for some strange reason. Which was a waisted opportunity because of the fact that she could have either battled either zinnia or drama in my opinion.

Serena is GONE. Stop moaning about it and make way for mallow and Lillie. Episode 8 of the brand new sun a D moon anime caused me to fall in love with Lillie as a character. - HeavyDonkeyKong

13 It was cliche
