If Serena really does have a childhood crush on Ash for sorts, I wonder how long it'll take before the next big shipping wars will begin. This will be a lot different than the random admiration moments May or Dawn showed toward Ash at times, this might be a real crush along those of Melody, Macy, Latias, Angie and Anabel...and Misty.
Since its now been 16 years since the anime started, the writers probably feel that Misty has been gone from the show so long now that they can start
For the following reasons:
1. She's girl travel companion #5. The writers have already started re-treading old personality traits on new characters ever since Dawn was introduced. Just judging by what she looks like we know she likely will be a mix of Dawn and maybe a little of May and a tad of Misty. This is the Pokemon writers, they're not looking to make groundbreaking characters especially when the target audience is 6 years old.
2. She won't do Gyms, so she won't
- Ash is all the way in front of the poster, making it seem like he'll be the star again. If you remember those DP adverts generally promoted Dawn alongside Ash in most cases. The way Serena is in the background makes it seem like she'll have a role similar to May. In fact the whole XY poster resembles those AG posters in many ways.
- Bonnie is Max with a cute pokemon. Most likely Bonnie won't do much battling and her pokemon will be more of a pet than anything like all kid characters
I don't know if the writers planned this specifically, but if Serena is Ash's new companion than all of Ash's female friends will have had a different hair color:
- Misty = redhead
- May = brunette
- Dawn = blue hair
- Iris = purple
- Serena = blonde
All of Ash's female friends had different hair colors. For a long time I wondered if we'd ever have a blonde female on the cast, and I guess that's finally
I'm not the only one who noticed this, but those few trailers of the XY anime remind me a lot of the DP series for some reason. I'm getting the same feeling now as I did back in 2006 when the initial Sinnoh 3-parter aired in Japan.
Honestly the only reason anyone liked DP is because it showcased the pinnacle of Ash's journey as a trainer and battler. Good rivals like Paul and evil villains like Pokehunter J added to that. Ash cannot be a rookie anymore with a terrible pokemon team,
