Top 10 Reasons Why Ash from Pokemon Doesn't Need a Girlfriend (In Canon)

Just shipping for fun is one thing, wanting him to be in a relationship in canon is another story.

The Top Ten

1 He's a 10 year old boy

"Ash Ketchum is a 10 year old boy, so Ash should not be in a romantic relationship, and Ash should not have a girlfriend. This is girl's stuff, sorry, but I thought of it since the first time I saw it. BUT NO! THE GIRLFRIEND RUINS HIM! "

Dude. You're way too young to be in a relationship.

Yeah, in 4 years he can. But he never ages, sooo...

Yeah! Sickos.

2 It's canon and well known that he's completely indifferent about romance
3 He will never age

When I was not born be was around 10(40 yrs ago).when I was 10 he was still ten(4 hrs ago.)...huh does he live near a super massive black hole? - Toucan

4 He lives in a world where he will be completely happy without romance in his life

Sorry, Amourshippers. Ash doesn't need romance. If you want romance in an anime, you're looking in the wrong direction. Let romance stick to Sword Art Online, not the Pokemon anime. - ModernSpongeBobSucks


5 He will only view his companions as his close friends and nothing more
6 Pokemon is not about romance and any hinted canon shipping with Ash will never happen

Pokemon is about the Pokemon (duh! ) and Ash's journey and adventures.

As I already said, ROMANCE was NOT made for Pokémon. The only thing that I admit to praise for what Serena did was that SHIPPING Ash with a FEMALE CHARACTER should NOT happen and be a thing.

7 He doesn't need to be in a romantic relationship to be happy

Yeah, he's perfectly happy the way he is. Besides, him and Pikachu are so close, he doesn't need a 'significant other.' Pikachu sort of fills that role (their relationship is totally platonic, of course).

8 Serena turned into ship bait because of her crush on Ash

So that's why everyone hates Serena?

Nyeh- I hate pokemon character ships - SeeU

9 He's at an age where it's very difficult to feel romantic attraction and understand it
10 He will always leave his companions behind and get new ones each new gen

The Contenders

11 He needs to focus on becoming a Pokemon Master and travel the world

Which would be a lot harder if he was bogged down in a relationship.

12 He has other things to be happy about
13 He's better off with friends
