    The mentor/student dynamic between Ash and May is pure brilliance, and I wish the writers would emphasize it a bit more than they do.
    So do I. And great pic BTW! We do need some more fan-art...

    Well if you want more fanart from the same artist as the pic above:



    May is drop-dead gorgeous in this picture, and it seems like Ash notices it.



    Satoshi and Haruka with normal clothes and looking like normal people instead of crazy anime characters. You know, May's hair style can actually be pulled off in real life after lookng at this pic.

    It sure can. Maybe just once I wish they would use normal clothes. And thanks for the fanart!

    Since I have nothing better to do here is even more Ash/May fanart:



    For some reason a lot of people consider Ash the "Knight in Shining Armor" when it comes to him and May. Unlike with Misty, Ash can actually have a girl where HE can be the head of the relationship.



    ^ Remember how Ash shoved ice cream in May's face at the end of the GF? This is how the scene should have played out. :P



    Ash and May with the outfits from Emerald. Did I mention how much I love this artist?

    I'm not into Advanceshipping, but I have to say that is an awesome piece of fanart that Scott85 posted.

    These are awsome! And I think I saw the first one already, on Serebii. But these are great!

    You might have thought I'd run out of fanart by now, but Advanceshipping is popular enough to have loads and loads of fanart.

    LOL, I'm not too surpised.. Advanceshipping, I think was easy to imagine as much as Pokeshipping, being the main girl/main guy thing

    Just a question, how popular is Advanceshipping in Japan

    Aother question, but does it mean when a thread is tagged?

    It will do no good to debate if you're wrong, and if you're right - you don't need to.

    Well most of the art above is done by Japanese artists, so it's probably around the same popularity or maybe more than it is in the U.S.

    As you said, lots of people assume the main guy/girl will get together, so I guess most kids (under 12 I think) will eventually believe they'll get together, since there is nobody else for them to get with since Misty is no longer on the show and Drew appears too little in the anime to actually be popular with the non-internet Pokemon fanbase.

    Advanceshipping may not be quite as popular as Pokeshipping was in it's prime, but it's up there I guess. Definitely one of the more popular Pokemon ships as a whole along with Rocketshipping.

    I'd say Advanceshipping is probably in the top 5 for the most popular Pokemon ships in Japan and the U.S.

    Vyse and Fina from Skies of Arcadia. It's an RPG released for Dreamcast and Gamecube.

    If that pairing does not scream Ash and May, I don't know what does.

    They're basically the same type of pairing, with a girl who a guy basically takes under their wing to teach/mentor whatever, and where there are strong bonds of trust and friendship between two characters, and then they figure out that they like each other.
