Hello all. Just passing through. I feel like I've been neglecting this thread, but I haven't had anything worthwhile to say. Still love PokeShipping though.

No and that's good because their first impressions of each other weren't pleasant.

Happy Birthday!
And, hm. They both weren't very impressed with one another at the beginning, so I didn't think that remained. However, I do believe some of Misty's developed- she was infatuated with Ash from the Early episodes and followed him, for a slightly exaggerated excuse. There was certainly some feeling of hers which flickered that early, that we could say, helped her to form a strong bond with Ash in the future.

Hmmm the first impressions have definitely changed. if i remember correctly misty was giving Ash a hard time for him not knowing how to raise pokemon, but at the end of there travels she came to love and respect who he was. Ash on the hand i dont believe was very hypocritical of misty at all.....his first impression was most likely " some random chick" and in the end Ash found himself in love. XD melody and misty should have fought for him -.- damnn that misty

Thank you for the greeting Likeitornot!

Thanks for answering the question. I therefore conclude that first impression won't last!. Like everyone would say, I agree that they'll definitely change their impression towards each other but how they've met each other back then would definitely hard to forget..

Happy (belated) birthday!!! :)

I don't think their first impressions of each other lasted very long because Misty thought he was initially an idiot who hurt his pokemon, and Ash's very first impression was that she was nice because she saved him. (this was before she slapped him across the face)

yeah... their first impressions didn't last very long i don't think.... ash probably thought while running from them spearow, hey person with bike... lemme borrow kthnxbai.... but in the end they both formed a bond together. if it wasn't for lame producers thinking romance in an anime is bad... they would still be together to this day i think... i mean look at how long brock lasted in the series o.0 but anyways they ended up loving each other in the end, so no first impressions lasted :)

thank you!Yes. It did change but in a very good way and maybe their strong bond of friendship will reunite with each other..

hm...while I agree with everyone else that they were rather hostile to each other at the start, I must point out that for the first couple of episodes at least, Ash seemed to want Misty to like him, which you can see from the fact that he sometimes asks for her advice and the hurt look on his face when she shouts at him. Notice how, at the beginning at least, Ash only insulted Misty when she insulted him first. Perhaps initially Misty genuinely didn't like Ash, but I think Ash may have liked her from the moment they met (although as we know, he just has his own unique ways of showing it).
Just something to think about there I guess...

That really did get me thinking... hmm. Well, you would think Ash would HATE Misty if she always got after him about her bike (WHICH she did). If it was me, I'd already have planted Pikachu on her XDDD.

You're new? Welcome to the PokéShipping, where we talk about Poke. Hope that was a nice welcome.

Anyways, I really can't answer the topic, but I think I have another topic. Did you like PokéShipping better on the 4Kids adaptation (1998) or the original one (1997)?

I'd say 4Kids. 4Kids doubled the Poke. I think original had more Pallet. I think.

EDIT: God dammnit I messed up with RadioactivCharmander, someone that does not exist on BMGF (zoe885), and zoe7777.

The 4 kids adaptation was much better than the original. I completely agree with you there.

Well, in terms of Pokeshippingness, 4Kids did a more thorough promotion. I wouldn't know about the rest though, not having really seen the original, but if I understand correctly, some things in the original were Pokeshippy, but not included in the 4Kids version, so I think it would be a matter of tabulating the data...

My impression of watching subbed clips of hints that were definitely in the dubbed version and ones that weren't, I would say that the number of hints was about equal, though they were differently distributed. While 4kids added hints like Jirachi Wish Maker and Heartbreak of Brock, they did take away A Date With Delcatty and they didn't air that Dratini episode in the first season (which had some cute bits in it). However, if we extend it to media outside the show, 4kids definitely added a lot more stuff, like the various songs and Pokemon Live, than the original did, whose only contribution, one could argue, would have been that one song from the second movie, Toi et Moi (toi et moi - Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia).

But to answer the topic, I don't think there's much distinguishing the two, staying in the realm of the show. I'm inclined to say the dubbed version, simply because I neither speak Japanese nor do I understand the emotional nuances of the words spoken, so simply reading subtitles doesn't give me much of a perspective on what's being said.

Er, are you asking what did I think of 4Kids' adaptation of Original's hints in comparsion how they were conveyed in the Original Japanese Version?
Or... What did I think of how 4Kids added in a few Pokeshippy hints that weren't in the Original, or, subtracted/altered a few?
Or both, really?

As, I can't really discuss the first section of it, as I've never really seen the OS subbed- nor do I speak Japanese or the styles of its language to tone certain things.

I can't comment to much on the topic since I've only seen the 4kids but honestly I just go ahead and combine the hints from both! haha

Also welcome new people

Well I've seen a couple of subbed episodes, and I like the pokeshipping more on 4Kids, because I grew up watching the way they interacted and I actually liked the dub added hints, they're cute :) Although I do like the original pokeshipping in the episodes banned in the US (only a couple) and seeing a pokeshippingish hint in both versions was cool cuz they did a really good translation. Okay, now I'm rambling, I'll shut up now.

I love both, but the english dubbed (some of it) of 4kids is quite nice and better, I supposed. Since there were nice hints and notable hints to be considered that are quite shippy.
