Hmm, I liked the idea of Ash and May I saw AG001 around...4 years ago maybe? But I never really got into Advanceshipping seriously until about last year because it was sorta at the back of my mind, then I just flipped on the TV out of boredom and just happened to be watching AG072. What looked like May's little crush sorta rubbed me that way initially, then Oscar and Andi, oh boy XD.How long have you been an Advanceshipper?
So then I read some fanfictions and then AshxMay officially passed RoyxLilina as my favorite couple. (The RoyxLilina writers are getting lazy sadly)
I think that's been already asked XDHow would other characters view Ash and May's relationship?
Brock: Happy for them and proud of Ash...before he goes and hits on some other girl :P
Misty: Kinda jealous initially but she'd get over it and be happy for them
Dawn: Fangirl squeal (I respect Pearlshipping but Penguinshipping looked pretty canon)
Drew: Sorta the same for Misty I suppose before he goes and finds some other girl.
Harley: "MWAHAHAHA! Now May is all distracted that she's got a boyfriend and now I can go win a Grand Festival for once!"
Solidad: "I thought you would end up with Drew, but congrats!"
Iris: Congratulate Ash on finally growing up I guess :P
Cilan: He'll evaluate them and decide they're good together I suppose lol
Gary and Ritchie: Same as Brock, minus the "go hit on another girl" part
I could keep going with just about every recurring anime character but I'll stop
