Top 10 Reasons Why Serena from the Pokemon Anime Should Not Follow Ash to the Alola RegionSince the fandom is incredibly salty and whiny about her leaving, let me explain how it's very petty of them to be like that. Especially wanting her to stay for a ship.
The Top Ten
Hey it's Okacolaebola and there has been something wrong with the site, I have been trying to post the next chapter about Mercedes the Minchino girl and it wouldn't post and I'm sure all the other writers have had trouble and that's why everything is late. Anyway, here is the chapter. Also my computer is lagging like crazy. Thanks for the likes, by the way! Only 2 weeks and 2 days left of school, EE!
Chap 2: Mercedes point of view. I was trapped in that bear trap laid by Bruce's grunt. I was bleeding, in pain, and there was no way out. I was going to be caught, sold, and given away to strangers for money. AGAIN. I slowly turned back to my human form and looked up. Bruce's ugly grunt who I call Ugly smiled an evil smile. I slowly hung my head, sure of my fate. Suddenly I heard loud noises, GRUNTS of pain ( get it?) an OOF, then silence. Suddenly a Pikachu ran at me. I closed my eyes, scared. Suddenly it used Iron Tail and snapped the trap. I was free! I would've run but I ...more
SoaPuffball thank you for your kind comment. I am happy you want to check out my fanfiction, and honored that you took time to comment on mine. That may not seem much to you, but to me... it was a lot. You could say I'm in a " Lillie " situation in my life. But sadly, I can't send you a link because the maker of this contest said NO ACCOUNTS so if you want to read it you must wait till I get 6 likes. Then I will post a chapter on this site and then have to wait for 6 likes and so on for every chapter. I'm sorry if you don't like this, but I didn't make the rules. I hope you stick around for the ride, though. Stay cute! Petra Doll :...)
If ash is going to get love interest I think that instead of being a useless charater like serena she should be a more of a romantic rivalry in my opinion
Serena is literally a fangirl. She is OBSESSED with Ash to the point where she does not even care about other characters at all. She sort of cares for Bonnie, but she treats Clemont horribly. Clemont does so much for her, and she rarely ever thanks him. All the time, she is focused on Ash and what she can do to impress him. This sends bad messages to children (young girls particularly) that if you like a guy, act like his servant and do everything just for him. I personally think May and Dawn were much better PokeGirls because they followed their goals not for someone else's sake but for their sake.V 17 Comments
It really is baffling to me that Amourshippers actually think Ash likes her back. It's one thing to pretend/imagine it based on some subjective hints. It's another thing to adamantly believe it, claim it's the absolute truth and obnoxiously shove it in other people's faces, ridiculing people who criticize the ship. When there's not even that much interaction between these two ten year old KIDS! They're delusional. Are other shippers in the Pokemon community this bad?
I don't know. The concept of shipping is messed up in general and is one of the many reasons why I am ashamed of "fandoms" as wholes. - Anonymousxcxc
Ash is never going to like her back. He's too dense and will never realize it. If he does.. well I don't think he's going to try to get a girl when he'll stay ten forever. - RisingMoon
Ash will NOT love her back! Because this show is meant for kids! It's not a romance show - Unharmless
Your "Senpai" will never notice you Serena
Take amourshippong out or keep it in. It doesn't matter. Xy/xyz is NY favorite series regardless. It did so many things right that I just can't understand any of the hate that it gets. Its what people have always been begging for the anime to have. A smarter sdh. A stronger ash. Better battles. A darker story. its only competition is the dp series. - HeavyDonkeyKong
I think the main reason why people rated the X/Y anime series is because of the amourshipping crap. I mean seriously, a MOTHERF-ING 7.5/10 over the original?! The original anime series got a 7.4/10! ARE YOU SERIOUS?!
The XY anime series has decreased its ratings with a 7.3/10 now! YAYY! Please, let's keep it there at least, or go lower.
Update 2 (12/10/2016):
Both the anime series has a 7.4/10 rating, we MUST drop the rating even more. IMO, I'd give it a 1/10 and that's only for Ash who has made it to a new region. - ClassicGaminer
I would laugh. Moms know best.
She can't commit to anything that's not Ash related
Hi what's sup its RFAP ( I'm on the why u should hate Serena site I listed like five ) and I SO agree. But, isn't performing only in Kalos? It makes NO sense for her to go on!
Ash never blushes with Serena
As one sided as it gets.
All shipping is one-sided. - Anonymousxcxc
Misty is Ash's true love. How? Celebi showed up when Misty kissed Ash in Pokemon: The First Movie.
I'm not kidding.
I severely doubt Ash will ever date her - TwilightKitsune
If ash would date someone, it would be Lillie not Serena.
I prefer Serena with Conway #StalkerShipping
People are mad about this? Must be new to the show, I guess. Other than Misty, no female companion of Ash has stuck around for more than one region. I'm pretty sure Misty only stuck around because the games didn't have a female player character until Crystal. - Zach808
And that's a good thing. Mallow and Lillie will be a breath of fresh air. Serena has become horribly stagnant since her competition with Aria (if she wasn't before. yeah, she was).
Yes, bye bye Serena - TwilightKitsune
I agree with this, even though Misty and Brock came back for quite a while.
Dawn liked Ash, but she didn't follow him, so why should Serena?
To be honest, I would've liked Serena more if she wasn't so infatuated with her childhood crush. Honestly, she can do better than that...
I agree, Serena would've and could've been a great character if people didn't worship Amourshipping so much. I actually would've been fine if it were just a small crush like Ash's past companions, but Serena's crush was nuts. Serena to me was fanservice, not entirely, but mostly. I just wish Serena had more character instead of the bland, lovesick character she is.
People keep bashing Ash for "not insisting for Serena to stay with him"
Well, HE'S AWARE she has a goal in Kalos (or had) and obviously is unaware about her feelings for him. Amourshipping is one sided people. You cannot argue that one out. - Ruee
I value serena for her character development halfway throughout the show. at first, I thought she was a ridiculous characterâ€" only rooting for ash but I grew on to like her. and when [spoiler] she kissed ash, what made me accept amourshipping is the fact that ash accepted her feelings, not returned but accepted. - lowkeysavage
Way too many episodes would be ripped off.
Who cares. People still watch the anime?
Why there are so many characters is that I think the animators are running out of ideas so they would fill it in with more "-focused" episodes. After all, we have seen more of these characters' families than any other companions. - IAMAMEME
Clearly, they (Amourshippers, and probably most shippers in general) don't watch the anime because they love Pokemon. They watch it for nonexistent romance.
Yeah, nobody likes repetitivity. - TwilightKitsune
Preach - DWisawesomethe3rd
This is exactly why Serena should not go to Kalos! ( Besides being a total jerk and copycat and a FLIPPIN STALKER! ) What's the point of bringing a character back when we should get new ones? If the animie kept re - using characters, people would get bored and stop watching. Pokemon. Would. Shut. Down. And who wants that? ( * Down below is an OC idea of mine. You can check it out if you want ( don't know why you would ) but don't steal it ( very unlikely anyone would since it's probably dumb ) *. ). Drumroll please: dundundundundundundundundundundundundundundundundundundundun. Name : Alicia Sinister. Age : 12 1/2. Size : 5 foot.

Serena wasn't the first, nor the last when it comes to having a crush on Ash. And I'm not talking about Misty. That was 4kids only. - Ruee
What a nightmare that would be.
She's a stalker, like Yandere-chan. She follows Ash EVERYWHERE! - mayamanga
And lillie have much more reasons to be atracted to ash than serena, like, ash saved lillie, ash visited her home and so on. For me it's obvious she has some crush on Him-bernardo - Bernardo
I agree with you
I am a alolashipper, so I agree with you
Seriously. Amourshippers: If your only " evidence " is their " childhood friends", Serena looks and sound like Alia and ash " looks" like that guy in the xyz legend, them standing next to each other, and ash eating Serena's food is your only " evidence ", than that is pretty much going nowhere. Just because someone sounds like Serena and looks like her ( like Lillie ) and likes someone does not mean amour is " canon.". Quite the opposite.
Also school starts 2mrrw ( * sobs *)! :...(
By that you mean the Sun and Moon anime would be a drama show. Then the ratings would be T.V.-PG,T.V.-14 or T.V.-G, whichever it is that the FCC would choose, and then the writers would screw it up and would probably have to cancel the ENTIRE anime. - ClassicGaminer
No she won't. Either this is a joke (which wouldn't makes sense because this seems like a serious list) or an exaggeration in my opinion lolol. - HeavyDonkeyKong
I believe that Serena would not kill anyone, just avoid letting ash have contact with the other girls. Especially if one of them likes him. Or even better. All three.
So truee serena is a crab so I told shrek to eat her
As I can see why this is submitted on the list, can someone elaborate the reasoning though? I'm not catching it fully. Sorry in advance. - Ruee
She might still make some appearances like May did for the Wallace cup
I know Lillie's classy, but she's made to be out of place. If Serena came along it just wouldn't feel right. We already have a much better Serena (Lillie) so why bring her?

2. Amourshipping is one sided
3. Amourshipping ruined Serena's character
