Pokemon And Kissing: A Short History 

The current Pokemon TV anime series is ending. In the most recent episode, there might have been kissing. This, however, would not be the first time Ash has been smooched. [Image: TV Tokyo via Anicobin]

As Kotaku previously pointed out, in Pokemon XYZ, Serena's crush on Ash is canon. She, however, won't be going to Alola for the Sun and Moon anime, which will feature a far goofier Ash than his current incarnation. Maybe her decision is for the best, then.

Here's what happened in the latest episode:

So, did she actually kiss him?

If she did, it happened off camera, but the other characters certainly seem to indicate they just saw kissy face.

This is kind of a big deal, no?

And the inevitable reaction:

If Serena did kiss Ash, it was not his first. In Pokemon Movie 2000, Melody gave Ash a "traditional greeting kiss", causing Misty to get all jealous.

See? So jealous.

At the end of 2002's Pokemon Heroes, a girl gives Ash a peck on the cheek.

That one actually got a close-up.

What makes this one interesting, is that we are unsure who gave Ash the kiss. It could've been Latias as Bianca or actually Bianca (read evidence for each theory here).

This will probably be all the Pokemon kissing for a while, because next month, the new anime kicks off with this Ash:

Goodness.

    I just watched Heroes recently, I'm pretty sure it's Latias. She's been affectionate, playful, and clingy with Ash throughout the entire movie, not to mention Latias is a hat-less mute in human form. It wouldn't make sense if it was Bianca.

    I dint get why people are dissing the new series. It's the first time I've been interested in watching the anime since the indigo league original. The Pole.on anime sucks balls and a change if pace is exactly what it needs. Also, the new animation style looks fantastic!!

    So, where the hell is Misty? Did she do a Brock and bailed for a bs reason?
