Worst Things Serena Has Done in the Pokémon Xy AnimeYou guys know that I don't like her, so I had to make a list of the worst things that Serena from the Pokémon XY anime has done.
The Top Ten
If they wanted Ash to have a love interest, they could have least used an already existing character like Misty or Dawn, instead of creating a new useless one. - TwilightKitsune
Thanks a lot, writers. You had to create a character who could only be infatuated with Ash.
It's weird how this happened in the first place. The writers weren't running out of ideas of what to do with one of their character leads, clearly demonstrated with new protagonists such as Lillie, Kiawe, Lana, and Mallow. Even the two other companions of the same season(s) that Serena was in were written in ways they stand out/were unique. (Clemont barely had personality in the games and they made him a great character in the anime). They either got lazy or never cared about Serena in the first place. The infatuation for Ash was only there to increase ratings since XY came after Best Wishes (Which made a lot of people lose faith in the anime). I'll never understand why shipping is such a serious thing for the Pokemon anime, but it did work with the ratings... which unfortunately made it harder to get people to like SM. - Rue
She only starter her journey to see Ash...That's the worst reason to start a journey...May started her journey because she wanted to travel around. Dawn Started her journey because she wanted to be just like her mother (Top Coordinator). Iris started her journey because she wanted to become a dragon master. What about Serena?...Well she started her journey because she saw her childhood crush (which she somehow remembered so well! ) jump off a 70m building because his electric mouse somehow fell off. Let's just think about that for a second...Serena never really had a real goal she just wanted to see ash! And she couldn't even tell him how she felt about him! Really!? I mean if they became a real thing then I would be fine with it, but she just kissed him and ran off? REALLY? Also Serena has a terrible and rude personality..She only changed because she wanted ash to fall for her and because she didn't want bonny and clemont to know that she a total a**V 1 Comment
They harass people who don't share the same bad opinion with them and attack the Japanese writers when things don't go the way they wanted to. They also dismiss the other pokegirls because they believe Serena is superior because she's infatuated with Ash, even though Serena and Ash have no chemistry. Pokemon XY is the most boring, predactible, backwards and worst series to date. Not only did it introduce us to rivals who acted more like a fanclub and bland travelling companions, but the series also brought out the worst in Ash. He's cocky, throws a tantrum when things doesn't go his way and plays the hero more than he's done before. I don't understand how people love XY. It was a garbage compilation
Only in the Pokemon fandom you can create a god awful fanbase by giving a character a crush on another character. - Rue
The fanbase is called Amourshipping, just to clear it out. It is completely salty, and yet they still claim that Ash belongs to Serena. Thanks a lot, Ash Ketchum.
The worse part about the Pokemon fandom as a whole are Amourshippers along side Verlisify and his fanbase - Rue
I saw a 7 year old react to them negatively. I was laughing so hard. - Rue
People keep pointing out Misty doing the same thing, but Misty herself didn't enjoy it from what I remember. - Rue
Serena is 10 years old, she dressed too inappropriately for her age. The Amourshipping fanbase are completely perverted when it came to Serena wearing such inappropriate outfit. Terrible, just terrible.
Everyone complains about Dawn, but Serena did it worse. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ
Seriously you're the one defending Serena and then call me a fanboy? Your hypocrisy is pathetic. Also, I'm a girl you imbecile. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ
MY EYES!V 1 Comment
This is the worst moment that Serena has done. It's an unforgivable moment.
I was really uncomfortable at this moment.. - cassiabez
She has developed a crush on Ash too early and it just didn't work. I don't even want that to happen if she actually had a goal or not.
Cutting your hair because you changed your looks doesn't change anything at all. What Serena did to cut her hair made no sense whatsoever. That's not character development.
Notice how people who claim she had great character development can never ever back it up? They clearly know she bland and try to cover it up half ass
I agree pokemon ranger boy says that she has so much charecter development - SushigirlO6
She was mainly focusing on Ash, and the fact that she did everything for Ash to notice her and to like her makes Serena an infamous character, not including her game counterpart.
Inexcusable! Brat only cares about Ash. And she especially ignored Clemont, the nicest most sincere one of the group.
Clemont: Ash, wanna try this new gadget? Ash: Sure, why not? Clemont: Serena, what about you? Serena: ( just keeps on walking).
I already have that on number 5, but that's okay. It does say something that she has done that is STUPID.
She has no set goal. She started her journey because of Ash, then does Showcases, loses to Aria, and suddenly she's doing Contests in Hoenn? I mean even the past female companions stuck to their goal. It may seem like they want Serena to have different paths in order to make her diverse and more realistic (since not everyone sticks to one thing. Sometimes it takes people to get through multiple career paths to finally find something that suits them) but in reality, the writers don't know what the hell to do with her character. It's been like this ever since day 1. Watch her come back to the show either in SM or the next generation for a couple episodes having a DIFFERENT goal once again. It's not surprising and I'll honestly hate her more and more if that happens. - Rue
You could say that she had (only) ONE "JOB" and she failed miserably, but I would say that she had (only) ONE "GOAL" and she failed miserably, Lol.
Counting her character development, she only had ONE "GOAL", and that was Ash.
She only treated them like a pet, and only had 3 Pokémon. It's just completely lazy.
Amourshippers, please don't say that she is nice to her mother later in the show, because that's not true. Please check episode 1 and 2 to be corrected, thank you.
