I don't know about XY but every moment with Lillie in Sun felt like a lowkey lesbian moment to me. XD But I don't think we would ever get a relationship mechanic where you're supposed to actively be wooing them, even if we do get rivals crushing on us in game.iirc unless I'm mistaken, didn't XY try to ship the protagonist with Shauna? I didn't play as the male protag so maybe she had some different dialogue with him, but man was she crushing hard on the female protag.
and same with ORAS with Brendan crushing really hard on May.
Game Freak's not above throwing "romance" (more like friend crushes but you get the point) in Pokemon. They're not even that subtle about it; but it's not overly blatant, either. Just enough that it seems like those who get it will get it and those who don't, it'll just slip under their radar, if that makes sense.
Not saying whether or not it'll happen in SwSh, but I wouldn't be surprised if there was a subtle-yet-not-so-subtle "friend crush" of some sort, again.
