I can definately say something about how Pokeshipping does slightly remind me of my childhood. Despite it not being my OTP ever, as I never shipped when I was young and started watching Pokemon (I remember it quite well. Ah, good memories), and when I did start shipping, I started on AG (not when it was first out) with one of the rival ships to Pokeshipping. It was actually kind of ironic - when May first came out, I absoultely hated her because an entire sixteenth of my childhood (part of the quarter I had for Pokemon, the other quarters were Power Rangers, Transformers, and another 'mon show that I better not say, in fear of my ass getting killed) was Misty, so I said that she was a crappy character, despite AG not even airing yet (yes, way back then). So I stopped Pokemon everything after a while. Now, I'm back into it, and while Pokeshipping may not be my absolute favourite ship, I'd say it'd be around 2nd. It's overall one of the most viable ones, I won't disagree with that.
