Read this before the rest of the article:This blog entry won't promote any paticular may ship, It's just anti-contestshipping blog entry.

if you the reader like me, doesn't support contestshipping, tell me if i'm missing information that could be added to this to make my arguemnt stronger


Was there ever a shipping that was really popular that you didn't support and found overrated? Well I have, one of the popular ships ine thevarious tv shows and movies I like, is contestshipping. There's sevral reason's why I don't support them. 'Cotntestshipping' interfering with 'my precious' advanceshipping is not one of them.

I know that there's several hints for contestshipping, and I'm not going to deny any of them being valid, but in most of those 'moments' Drew was flirting with her and yet insulting her at the same time. That's not how a guy is supposed to treat a girl.I'm going to list my reasons in bullet points.

  • Now That's Flower Power!
    This is the first episode with Drew in it. He starts insulting May without getting to know her first.Also Drew is ogling, which is inappropriate for a 10 year old to do.
  • Win, Lose or Drew!
    Strangely even though He critized her, he gave her a rose. May never having someone give her flowers before blushes. but Drew wants to hide that he likes her and has the nerve to say "it's for you beautifly, not you May!" eesh! why did he have to be so rude? Couldn't of he at least apologzed for his rudness to her earlier.
  • Pros and Con Artists!
    He again insults her, then next gives her roses, and of course claims they're for her Beautifly again! How pathetic!
  • Come What May!
    the insults-roses cycle happens again the 3rd time. May gets tired of this and questions him about and got him to indirectly admit it wasn't for her beautifly.May starts getting annoyed with him.
  • Who, What, When, Where, Wynaut?
    In this episode tension between them has decreased a little but in this episode it's hinted that drew was stalking May. Stalking is so unromantic, it's creepy. Drew reminds of of a certain 'sparkling vampire'. Ahem! no offence twilighters.
  • On Cloud Arcanine
    Drew pisses off May once again.He also does this in other episode but i'm too lazy to list those other ones right now.


As you can see I find Drew emotionally abusive towards May. I'm glad this ship didn't become canon. I was afraid it would since Drew was starting to appear sucessful with play with May's emotions by switching back and forth from lvoing her to hating her.

I'm personally not a fan of these types of relationships. anyway what's so great about emotional abuse. Some of you guys may be thinking, "you're just saying this isnce you don't like love-hate relationships in genral". well first of all, not all love-hate relationships contain emotional abuse. One love/hate ship with no emotional abuse, that i can think of right off the bat is ash/misty. Secondly, There is love/hate relationships i support but they aren't in pokemon though

I know some people ship this couple just to get May out of the way for the ash ship they support,but why ship her with drew out of all chracters in pokemon.there's other guys to pair may with.there's also other girls to pair drew up with. if you're into slash you could even pair may or drew with someone the same gender as them.

In conclusion I don't support Drew/May because Drew is emotionally abusive, and he probaly only likes her for her looks.

    You do realize that arguing and insulting is a 10-year-old's equivelent of flirting?

    well i kinda think it does, but if they are i don't agree with them. if a show makes pairngs i don't like canon, i still won't support, and think "screw canon". I'm not one of those people who just ship a couple just because they happen. in fact sometimes i find some paticular chracter would be perfect for someone in a different tv ship/movie.

    I just want to you guys to understand my viewpoint on how IO decide what ships i like

    in some cases yes, but i don't like it people flirt by insulting. i hate guys who are that way. luckily not all ten-year olds do that. in fact i've know teenagers and adult who still do that.

    at least ash/misty and paul/dawn mements didn't include anyone pulling "the insult and then flirt" thing.

    Also some of you guys probaly think i'm a man hater. no i'm not, I am a kit of a feminist, and i have a low tolerance for types of guys like drew. to be honest i somehow got switched places with may during any of those scenes where drew gives may a rose, i would've probaly slapped him or at least tell him off.

    The show hinted towards the pairing many times, especially during the end of AG. It's pretty damn close to canon at this point.

    Nevertheless, I'm an Advanceshipper. I prefer the ship much more, but even I have to admit there was something going on between May and Drew. Them traveling to Johto together pretty much sealed the deal.

    That, uh, is actually one of PokeShipping's biggest evidences. That Ash and Misty bickered and insulted each other constantly.

    Ash and Misty just argued a lot but insulted each other while arguing.well, neither ash or misty started flirting after arguing and then denying it.

    Drew on the other hand just insulted may, and may didn't argue back.

    wel..those are not the reasons I don't support it. The main reason I don't support it is because Drew loves may, has a crush on her, BUT he's embarrassed about it. I don't think he being rude, but he's embarrassed he likes her, and that's not a good sign of a shipping to me. May tries to make him do this in public but he's too embarrassed like I said so they don't work out together.(I'm an Ghostadvanceshipper and a pokeshipper,, kinda...)

    They're TEN. Of course he's embarrassed about it! He probably still believes in cooties!

    well, he's ASHAMED of it. True that a ten year old would be embarrassed, but Drew's maturity is very high.

    i agree with aguillano, that's a big turn off for me liking contestshipping also. i personally think that contestshipping is one-sided canon, since drew obviosly is infatuated with may, but she doesn't feel the same way about him. if anyone wants to arue with me of what i just said my counter-argument is that she's just leading him on, and only thinks of him as a rival/friend, but is a afraid of ending her friendship by just straight fowardly rejecting him. little does she realize that what's she doing is not the best way to deal with the situation, she's just gonna piss some people off when they realize what she's doing, and people will think of her as a user.
