"OrangeShipping (Misty/Tracey) was my first Misty ship, I still ship it, but now I prefer ImageShipping (Misty/May) and Pokeshipping (Misty/Ash)."
"I wish that more people ship Waterflowershipping it’s my crack otp."
This is from Legend of Dratini. I’m sure this scene has been posted before, but I wanted to post it again for good measure.
I like how Ash is initially mad that she grabbed him so violently, but his face and voice soften when he realizes she’s just worried, and he assures her. (And then jumps in anyway, but this is Ash we’re talking about after all…) I also like how she holds onto him for so long, continuing to cling to his arm while they’re talking. I wanted to post the rest of the scene, too, because she sends out her Pokémon to help him and continues actively worrying about him, but alas, image limit!
I’ve been thinking about Totodile lately. Specifically, Ash’s Totodile. ( I don’t have a Totodile obsession, m’kay?)
Anyway, I think that it was Misty who actually caught the Totodile and not Ash. So basically, it was Misty’s catch and not Ash’s. If we observe the Totodile episode, the lure ball that caught Totodile came from Misty’s direction. Ash, I think, assumed that it was his pokeball that’s why he battled Misty. It’s like how Ash was supposed to have Togepi instead of Misty but still everyone battled out for her.
So basically, Ash and Misty gave each other pokemon (without them knowing, and with a fight first).
I guess this is my headcanon; maybe I just have a Totodile obsession.
Thanks so much!
Here’s the fic in case any of you are interested for some Egoshippy goodness! It’s Research by Celianna
"NovelShipping is one of my favorite ships since both of them would be so cold when in public but the most stereotypical couple in private."
Pokeshipping in the Togepi Mirage Special
This is actually one of my favorite episodes in terms of Pokeshipping, I feel like that Ash and Misty’s interactions in this episode were a lot better than that of The Real Cleffa Hanger. Ash and Misty are always near each other in this episode, it’s kinda cute c: and how protective Ash is of both Misty and Togepi is adorable, he tells Max to take Misty and the others away from harms way and he tries to get into the barrier even before Misty does and you can see him shaking as they both witness Togepi’s pain do to Hansen, and he’s the only one helping Misty trying to open the barrier. Brock also suggests just for Ash and Misty to fight Hansen but May says she wants to tag along as well ( I’m thinking because she has torchic? But I don’t know). I just thought, in terms of Pokeshipping I really liked it, and I just liked Ash and Misty interactions in it overall.
Some things I caught on that doesn’t have to do with shipping was, the whole Space/Time reference and the fact that Meowth didn’t care that Togepi was getting hurt.
"Ash was raised in Team Rocket by Jessie, James and Meowth. One day he meets Misty, a trainer who tries to get him to see exactly what kind of people Team Rocket really are."
