Wow, your art is gorgeous! And I totally agree, so much love to frantic/specialshippings <3~
Hello, before people start criticizing (that's what some forum people love to do :ksmile, I know the Pokémon manga is generally children-orientated.
Heck, even the anime, games and apparel or whatever are heavily children-orientated, explaining the once enjoyable TV show now a bit tad bland or repetitive.
Nevertheless, I still can be considered somewhat of a hardcore Pokémon fan, indulging in fully EV-Trained Pokémon and whatnots... :ksmile:
I do believe that the Pokémon manga, although the most evolving part of the Pokémon franchise, should fully evolve out of its stereotypical genre-ish story-plot...
Romance wouldn't hurt, would it...? It's just my opinion, ignore it if it pisses you off.
PLATINUM & DIAMOND FANBOY HERE
Okay, so moving onto the main topic... The romance in the Pokémon manga.
The confirmed couples are the evident Ruby and Sapphire. (Much evidence points that they are already a couple, with Winona and Ruby's mentor talking about their relationship at one point in the Emerald Arc.)
But are there any other relationships I've missed? I'll be happy with even the slightest hints...
Apart from Yellow and Misty having their secret crushes on Red, I don't think there's anything else? (Crystal on Gold perhaps?)
Also, I have another intriguing thing to point out.
Please do look at this link: Green (Adventures) - The Pokémon Wiki
It's a link referring to Green in the manga, and the profiling states that she had kissed Red, and even went with him for a honeymoon.
I rubbed my eyes, and rubbed them again, even went to look at the comics for these presumed events. I couldn't find the above mentioned events.
Of course, I may have missed out something, but I'd like to inquire...
Did these events actually happen? :O!
Omg, how could I have missed them if it actually did?!
So, anyone can explain to me why specialshipping is so popular? I find LuckyShipping better, since Red and Green has the same age, and, at least, they appear to like each other in the manga. SpecialShipping does not seems to have a really bright future, since is a relationship with only Yellow expressing interest in this happening.
Oh, and before anything more is said, BACK FROM ASHES! (Or I would say, reborn from the ashes)
