I have been watching a lot of Pokemon AMVs on youtube and I've noticed something worth sharing (though you all might be aware of this by now). A lot of people who post AMVs that are solely about Ash/Satoshi (where the users don't typically associate themselves with pairings/shippings at all) will almost always go to Misty as the default if they are creating a video about Ash that maybe once or twice references something dealing with romance. Has anyone else noticed this too?
I think one of the strongest points to make in the PokeShipping argument is that most people who grew up watching the show (and still watch it) think of it as canon, despite Misty not being a regular on the show (or showing up for a while for that matter). She just... makes the most sense.
Any other thoughts on this?
