Personally I'm more surprised that Gou x Koharu doesn't seem to be a thing? But then again it's nice to see boys and girls just being friends.

Not sure what is going on with Gou's gender expression in the canon story. Was that thing about Gou crossdressing as a Santa in a miniskirt just a joke like when Satoshi crossdresses or a hint to something more??? I doubt it but sometimes I wonder about Gou (with all the blushing and stuff). :p

Chloe doesn't appear enough to counteract the guy love.

When did this happen again?

It’s guy love, between two guys.

In an interview, someone asked the directors what they would have the characters wear for Christmas. Tomiyasu's choice for Goh was a miniskirt Santa outfit. AKA it's not actually a canon thing (not that it won't stop fans.)

Back when XY was airing, I think Ash x Clemont was also quite popular on Pixiv. On the other hand, there wasn't as much Ash x Sophocles or Ash x Kiawe during SM.

Of course, now there is pretty much nothing but Ash x Go on Pixiv when it comes to Pokeani fanart. Heck, I thinks there might be more Ash x Go fanart than for Ash x Gary, which might have been the most popular non-straight Ash shipping before the current series.

Edit: Ok, so the number of fanart for each shipping is different than what I thought they might be.

For prominent non-straight Ash ships (as in more than 100 pieces of art, sorry to all you Tracey, Barry, Trip, Kiawe, or Sophocles fans), these are the number of Pixiv fanart for each category as of 12/29/2020

Satoshige/Shigesato - 2095 (Gary)
Saroshin/Shinsato - 868 (Paul)
Satoden/Densato - 705 (Cilan)
Satogo/Gosato - 514 (Go)
Satotake/Takesato - 275 (Brock)
Satoshito/Shitosato - 217 (Clemont)

So for the short time Go has been on the anime, he has actually garnered quite the fanbase who are fond of shipping him with Ash. He has surpassed Brock and Clemont combined, and will probably surpass Cilan and Paul by the time Journeys has finished airing.

Of course, no non-straight Ash shipping would ever come close to Gary.
Huh, I though papa kukui would appear on there. I don’t like it’s existence, but unfortunately we have a ton of shippers that are absolute nutcases.
DAWN x CYNTHIA IS A THING TOO? WHAT ARE THESE SHIPPERS THINKING?
EDIT: APPERANTLY CYNTHIA x CLEMONT IS A THING TOO. WTH?
Boy you totally aren’t ready to learn about the ash and dawn ships with Hunter J.
Whoops.

What kind of art....IDK I'm just pondering the angle.

....Like seriously, what fuels a ship like that? And is it just in Japan while in the west she's a shipping ghost town?
Ash x Chloe is neat

I ship Ash x Goh but Ash x Chloe is neat too. Amourshpping is still best tho.

....Yes but....what makes Ash x Chloe interesting? What would give it any sort of momentum beyond 'main female'?

Ash x Bea at least has things I can see being fun about it. What does Ash x Chloe have?
