Top Ten Reasons to Hate Amourshipping

The Top Ten

1 It's just fanservice for XY

Ugh, I regret making this list - yungstirjoey666

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

2 The fanbase

Although I agree that the AmourShipping fanbase mostly consists of annoying harassers who will send you death treats if you don't ship their ship, I don't consider "fanbase" to be a good argument to hate on a pairing/character itself. - Liinde

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

Why can't they just leave the other girls alone?

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

3 It ruins Serena's character

I have no idea what you mean by here. Serena having feelings with Ash actually improves her character.

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

To be fair, yes. It's not like Serena is such a detestable and annoying character at the core. If you dropped the stupid infatuation on Ash, she would care much more about Clemont and she wouldn't be the stereotypical future wife character. Look at Clemont! He admires Ash a lot! But that's not a reason why he doesn't care for Serena, Bonnie or others! If Serena ONLY admired Ash and wasn't so obsessed with him, she would've been a much better character.

Sure, I find other aspects of Serena annoying, like her obnoxious girliness, but I would like her much more without the infatuation with Ash. - Liinde

4 They're only 10

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! "

EVERYBODY IN THIS SERIES LIKES POKEMON ITS LITERALLY THE NAME OF THE FRANCHISE! - HeavyDonkeyKong

6 They have little to no chemistry together

^^ False. Ash shows no romantic interest in any girls. Take off your shipping glasses

Ash showed absolutely NO interest in Serena. He’s showed more interest in all other Pokegirls (Except for Iris)! Misty, May, and Dawn all had a reason to be shipped with Ash, since it reflected their overall character. But Serena, being nice and having a crush on Ash is her entire character.

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.

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

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

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 It's the only reason why Serena is popular

I think if she is not pretty, almost everyone will hate her

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

10 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

The Contenders

11 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

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
14 It was one-sided

Ash showed no interest in Serena. At most he cared for her as any good friend should. Serena, however, has nothing to her character except for her huge, and frankly, pathetic crush on Ash. In fact, many of Serena's actions and decisions have been based on her interest in Ash.
As an example: If Serena hadn't seen Ash on the news saving his Pikachu, Serena would still be at home, sulking because her mother wanted her to do Rhyhorn racing. But no. Once she found out Ash was in Kalos, she almost immediately began her journey just to see him again. She didn't have a career goal in mind when she left. She just wanted to see him.
She did other things because of her crush on Ash, like dressing in his clothes or starting a rivalry with Miette over him.
In order to have a functioning relationship, the people involved need to have mutual feelings for each other. Unfortunately for Serena, she is far from getting that with Ash. As I said before, Ash hasn't shown any feelings for Serena.

15 The Relationship Only Improves Serena

In the relationship only serena will improve since, like dawn and may, learn most of there move from ash. Ash is a battler serena can’t help with that,even without Pokemon serena still can’t help ash since she’s usually to scared to act
While ash help serena in showcase, and like May and Dawn, start their careers up and he boost her confidents when they fall.
