Is Ash x Goh going to become the dominant slash pairing in the anime sphere?

...Now first off I really don't care for the results of this beyond 'if I want to make a Yaoi fangirl joke out of Serena or Lana or someone'. I don't really care for Yaoi and don't seek it out. However I do have some curiosity on this question and am curious what those more in the Yaoisphere are observing.

(And I have no better place to ask it than here)
This, too, shall pass...

From what I've seen whenever Ash gets a new companion he gets shipped with them pretty heavily during that series' run, then once they leave it becomes less prominent. So I'd guess it'll be dominant for at least a while--the question is if it'll stay big.

Admittedly I am not a slash expert--the main ones I'm aware of in this fandom are Ash X Gary (which was huge during the OS but I don't see it much now) and Pikachu X Meowth.
