First off, I'm 31 years old, He/Him, Straight, all that jazz.
Second, my favorite ship in the whole Pokemon series is AshxMisty. My most despised ship in the whole series, however, is AshxSerena.
Third, my favorite series besides Pokemon include Mario, Kirby, MySims, Adventure Time (fave ship is FinnxPB, despised ship is MarcelinexPB), Steven Universe, Super Smash Bros. (particularly SSBU), PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, and more. My least favorite series (and standalone stuff) include Fate/Grand Order, Undertale, FNAF, Among Us, and more. If you hear me rag on about how much I dislike my least favorite series (and standalone stuff), just be aware that I'm only doing so to avoid those toxic fanbases.
Lastly, in case you didn't see my Party already, my favorite Pokemon of them all is Druddigon.
