This can be shown to people who would consider the 'ship' non canon 

XY059; the episode's name in Japan was '
Satoshi and Serena's First Date!? The Tree of Promises and the Presents!!'
(Source:bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wik…)

Serena's hints
  • When Serena sees a live news report of Ash trying to calm a rampaging Garchomp on Prism Tower, she silently looks on, seemingly in awe at Ash's bravery. When Ash jumps off the tower to rescue Pikachu, she gasps in fear for his safety. However, this may have been merely general concern, since the news camera never showed Ash's face in full until he was safely on the ground.
  • Upon seeing Ash's face on TV, she ponders whether she recognizes him, having a flashback scene of a younger Ash at the end of the episode.
  • Serena decides to begin her journey after seeing Ash on television. Upon arriving at Professor Sycamore's laboratory, and before choosing her starter Pokémon, Serena tells the professor that she is looking for the boy who was on the news. Her eyes seem to light up considerably when Sycamore identifies him as Ash.
  • When Serena is walking down the steps in Santalune City, she thinks about how she cannot wait to see the look on Ash's face when he sees her. Then, she has a flashback of a young Ash extending his arm, as if he was offering her his hand. When the flashback ends, she is seen blushing slightly.
  • When she sees Ash battling Viola, she is so overcome with excitement that she runs toward the battlefield, seemingly planning on goingdirectly on there to greet Ash without noticing that the battle is still in progress.
  • Later, when Ash loses the battle, Serena is obviously remorseful and attempts to speak to him, but is further saddened when he runs past her without noticing her, since he is concentrating on his injured Pokémon.
  • When Serena returns Ash's backpack to him (which Ash had left behind at the Gym), she starts to ask Ash something while blushing a little, only to be interrupted by the Pokémon Center bell.
  • When Ash is on the ground from the intense training, dirty after falling to the ground while catching Pikachu and Fletchling, Serena walks up to him and hands him a handkerchief to clean himself up with, showing her thoughtfulness towards him.
  • Serena looks nervous before she asks him if he remembers her. It is interesting to note that when she is seen interacting with her mother, Serena has a sassy and rebellious attitude towards her, but whenever she is around Ash, she seems to be extremely hesitant and nervous, contradicting the personality that viewers have seen from her in prior episodes.
  • After she asks Ash if he remembers her, Serena mentions that they met in Professor Oak's Pokémon Summer Camp in Pallet Town. When Ash remembers attending the camp, she is overjoyed and tells him that she went there as well. However, when he says that he does not remember her specifically, she is visibly disappointed, but instantly cheers up, obviously not wanting to be upset or angry with him.
  • When the group is having dinner after the training session, Serena glances at Ash and smiles at him while he is eating. Since this is directly after him saying that he is sure to win the rematch, this strongly implies that she is admiring his determination and is impressed by it.
  • Throughout the entire Gym battle, her cheering for Ash seems to be in a more enthusiastic way than Clemont and Bonnie. She also keeps reassuring Clemont, Bonnie, and Alexa that everything is going to be okay and that Ash would win, showing that she strongly believes in him. Later, when Ash becomes overwhelmed by Viola's new battling strategies, Serena cries out to Ash that he should not give up (echoing a motto Ash had told her in their childhood). In that scene, the emotions are seemingly emphasized. Her encouragement snaps him out of his panic and helps him win the battle.
  • After Ash asks Serena to join them in their travels, she puts a hand over her heart and smiles before winking at him and accepting the invitation.
  • When Clemont asks Serena why she started her journey, she pulls out the same handkerchief Ash used to bandage her, and shows it to Ash in a second attempt to get him to remember their past. This shows that Serena has kept the same handkerchief Ash used to tie up her knee with after all these years.
  • In a flashback of when Ash and Serena first met as children, Ash bandages Serena's knee and then pulls her up from the ground. She ends up falling into his arms in some sort of hug, and the camera zooms on her surprised face. Then, she quickly pulls away and looks at him, a surprised expression on her face. When Ash is showing her the way out of the forest, she is wide-eyed and blushing. This flashback indicates that Serena developed feelings for Ash after that incident.
  • When Ash identifies Serena as the same girl he helped when he was younger, she blushes.
Flashback of Ash and Serena
  • Ash asks Serena why she went through all the trouble of returning the handkerchief to him and she replies with "Not just that. You see, I also really wanted to see you again". Serena then pouts, blushing, when she complains about Ash failing to remember her.
  • Serena puts on a pink outfit for Rhyhorn racing and then asks Ash what he thinks of it with a blush on her face.
  • When Serena is on top of the Rhyhorn and demonstrating for Ash how to ride one, she is blushing.
  • When it is nighttime and everyone is sleeping, there is a view of the whole room with Serena's bed shown to be empty. It is then revealed that Serena is in the kitchen baking. At the end of the episode, she hands to Ash a pouch filled with cookies. She blushes and tells him that it is because she is thankful towards him. Then, she has a flashback of her and Ash when they were younger holding hands. After the flashback ends, she winks at him.
  • When Ash falls down, everybody else worries about Pikachu, but only Serena yells Ash's name.
  • When a teacher named Penelope challenges Ash to a battle and states that if she wins, he would have to come with her, Serena freaks out and begins to blush. Later on, when Penelope takes the group to the kindergarten she works at and Serena realizes she misunderstood her, she puts a hand over her heart in relief.
  • When Ash is pushed out of the truck by Team Rocket, Serena quickly runs towards him while shouting his name.
  • When Serena is hypnotized by Malamar, she focuses solely on going after Ash and completely ignores Meowth.
  • Serena and Bonnie are both excited to introduce the idea of the Battle Chateau to Ash. While Bonnie blushes over the possibility of cake, Serena is blushing because she is sure that he would like it. After they arrive there, Serena asks if this is something Ash's interested in, which he answers in the affirmative.
  • Serena is visibly worried when Ash mentions that the video of Aria looks cute before he clarifies that he's talking about Aria's Fennekin. Once the clarification is made, Serena's expression softens.
  • When Serena asks Ash for help with her video and he declines, she is upset. Note that she asks Ash before everyone else.
  • At the end of the episode, Serena specifically asks Ash what he thought of her video with a blush on her face.
  • When Ash and friends are using one of Clemont's machines to randomly decide the two who going in the submarine together, Serena unhesitatingly chooses the same arrow as Ash, before either of the siblings can.
  • When Ash is rock climbing in Cyllage Gym, the camera focuses on a worried Serena.
  • Before the battle between Ash and Grant starts, Serena is very worried. She clasps her hands together which catches the notice of Bonnie and Clemont. She then begins to blush and, at one point, tears up when thinking about how hard Ash has trained.
  • Miette asks Ash teasingly if he has a future bride in mind (in reference to Bonnie asking women to have her brother Clemont) to see how Serena would react. Serena is shown to be paying close attention from the corner of her eye with a frown, and then looks away and pretends indifference.
  • When Ash is holding on the tube to stop the air flow from reaching the mecha so it could run, the camera goes to a worried Serena, who yells out his name in concern.
  • At the end of the episode, after Ash calls Serena's name, Miette teases Serena about him and says that if Serena doesn't tell Ash how she feels about him, then she will. Serena blushes bright red, but walks away smiling. It is interesting to note that Serena is the only girl to not deny her feelings for Ash when teased about it.
  • When Ash bangs his head against the tree after catching Pikachu, the camera focuses on Serena, who shouts his name in concern while clasping her hands together.
  • When Ash tries to go down the transporter after Pikachu, Serena tries to stop him from doing anything dangerous while Clemont and Bonnie do nothing.
  • When Ash is battling Korrina, only Serena is cheering him on, while Clemont and Bonnie are complimenting how strong Lucario is.
  • While everyone's picture is being taken, Serena slides closer to Ash leaving an obvious gap separating them from the others and unlike everybody else, Serena isn't looking into the camera but is looking at Ash when the picture is being taken.
  • After the group photo, Serena stands there admiring her picture with Ash and sighs happily until he calls her to hurry and she turns around with a blush.

Serena's eyes widen and then she nods her head in determination realizing that if she wants Ash back, she has to try her hardest.
  • Serena saves Ash by grabbing his hand and helping him make it back to their dimension. Even with both Clemont and Bonnie reaching for Ash, it is Serena who manages to reach him.
  • After Ash is safely back in their dimension, Mirror Serena tells Serena to take good care of Ash; Serena smiles and nods her head in understanding.
  • At the end of the episode, Serena asks Ash if they will always be traveling together from now on, to which a smiling Ash replies with that she should not even have asked such an obvious question.

  • Serena is immediately worried and asks Ash if he is okay as he lies on the ground after saving her.

  • Serena is persuaded by Ash that she will find her dream with her Pokémon.
  • Serena asks about Ash's prior foot injury with a concerned look on her face.
  • As Ash makes his way back across after saving Bonnie from the other side, Serena, who says in concern that he can do it, conveys that she does not want Ash to lose his footing and hurt himself.
  • During the entire episode, each time Serena battles, she is usually ordering Fennekin to support Pikachu. This is an interesting hint since she could have chosen to assist Clemont instead or battle more independently like Clemont and Ash did.
  • When Serena recalls how Ash practiced the rhythm battling style the night before, she is the only one who finds it amusing as she giggles and calls Ash clumsy.
  • When Ash and his Pokémon are practicing their dancing moves, Bonnie and Clemont start laughing at Ash's clumsiness and Serena tells them to stop.
  • After Clemont's dancing machine blows up, Serena tells Ash that she can teach him to dance. Although the two dancing together is not shown, the scene moves from day to sunset where Ash and Serena have just finished dancing and Ash collapses from exhaustion from a full day's training.

This is the first time that Ash has asked a female companion to travel with him. It can also be noted that when Ash asked Serena to travel with him, he appears to be nervous, which is shown in his voice and when he scratches his cheek; cheek scratching is a classic anime symbol for nervousness.
  • In a flashback of when Ash and Serena first met as children, Serena hurts her knee. Ash arrives, takes out a handkerchief upon seeing her injury, and bandages it up for her. Then, he holds out his hand and when she hesitates to take it, he grabs her hand and pulls her up, quickly taking her by surprise and making her fall into his arms in a hug. It is noted that during the hug, it is Serena who pulls away and not him. Afterwards, he holds her hand and helps her find her way back to the camp.
  • After the flashback, Ash finally remembers Serena as "the girl with the straw hat." After Serena pouts for not recognizing her right away, Ash apologizes.
  • Learning that Serena took Rhyhorn racing lessons from her mother, Ash asks her to train him so he can participate.
  • After receiving cookies from Serena, Ash seems to enjoy them a lot.
  • It can be noted that Ash checks on Serena first and asks if she was okay instead of checking on Bonnie or Professor Sycamore.

  • When everyone is holding each other's ears from Snorlax's snoring, Ash is holding Serena's ears.
  • When Serena is in her Fennekin outfit, Ash is seen to be blankly staring at her, possibly out of attraction. His is the only face out of everyone present (an audience including Bonnie, Clemont, Dedenne, Froakie, Fletchling and Pikachu) that has a different expression than the others. It is also worth noting that the camera focuses on just Ash's face at first, showing everyone else a few seconds later.

  • When Serena is feeding her Fennekin, the camera focuses on Ash, who is staring at her and smiling.
  • When Serena asks what she want to do as her dream, Ash encourages her that she will find it together with Fennekin.
  • When Ash's rhythm battling strategy seems to be failing against Korrina, he turns to look at Serena in the middle of the battle and remembers her words from the previous day's training, which motivates him and gives him an idea that helps him win the battle.
  • When Luxio uses Swift, Ash moves in front of Serena in a defensive position.
  • When Team Rocket throws a smoke bomb, Ash and Serena turn towards each other and cover both of their heads with their arms to protect each other.
  • When Serena falls down the cliff with Clemont, Ash is the only one that calls out to her.
  • Ash praises Serena, saying it was thanks to her he learned how to ride a Rhyhorn.
  • Ash is constantly checking on Serena to see if she is all right.
  • When Grace talks about Serena not helping with cooking, Ash speaks up and compliments Serena's baking skills.
  • When the group see a Malamar and remember their previous encounter with it, Ash puts his arm out in front of Serena to protect her.
  • When a truck is driving recklessly and almost hits them, Ash pushes Serena away from the road so she does not get hit. This is significant because both Clemont and Bonnie are closer to the road at the time and are therefore in even more danger of being hit by the truck.
  • When the group is separated, Ash is calling out for Serena only, despite others like Bonnie and Goomy being lost as well.
  • Thanks to a suggestion from Serena, Ash comes up with what to get for his Pokémon as a gift.

  • When Bonnie and Clemont notice that Serena is missing, Ash volunteers to go find her.

  • After Ariana challenges Serena to a Double Battle, Ash is the one who gives Serena enough encouragement to accept the challenge.
  • Both Ash and Serena are relieved to see each other when they reunite.
  • Serena keeps suggesting that they visit the shop to check some outfits while Ash consistently agrees. It is atypical of Ash to want to visit a clothing shop, given his established personality.
  • When Serena appears on stage in a furisode outfit, Ash is shown to be staring at her in awe.
  • Ash greatly cheers Serena when she shows confidence in not losing the Showcase.
  • Ash states that Serena is amazing after trying her Poké Puffs.
  • When Ash, Clemont, and Bonnie are voting for Serena, Ash noticeably raises his PokéLume higher than the others.
  • Ash is shown congratulating Serena after the Showcase and compliments her on her dress.
  • When the group is deciding the pairs needed to ride on the Mamoswine, Ash happily picks Serena to ride with him.
  • While crossing the bridge in the snowy mountains, a blast of icy wind frightens Serena, and Ash comforts her. He then praises her once they are safely across the bridge.
  • When the group splits up to find the herbs needed, Ash again quickly picks Serena to be his partner.
  • Ash compliments Serena when she finds the herb that they were looking for.
  • When Serena asks Ash what he thinks of her nurse outfit, Ash tells her it suits her well.
Other hints
Valentine's Day poster with Ash and Serena.
  • On the second promotional poster for the series, Serena is depicted blushing while looking at Ash.
  • Battling on Thin Ice!
  • After Serena asks Ash if he remembers her, Ash's Pikachu and Fletchling run to Clemont and Bonnie in response, implying that the two Pokémon sense that this is a sensitive moment between Ash and Serena and that they should be left alone.
  • As Serena and Ash talk, Alexa is seen smiling at the two of them, suggesting that she enjoys seeing the two of them together and even senses a spark between them. However, she could also be smiling as a response to Serena restoring Ash's motivation to train, by quoting a sentence he once said in his childhood, about "never giving up".
  • Before the start of the rematch between Ash and Viola, Alexa tells Serena when she heard Ash and her talking, he needed some inspiration, but she didn't think it would be from her. This sentence implies that Ash would not be as inspired and determined to win the battle if Serena had not appeared.
  • On the first official character connection table, an arrow is shown from Serena to Ash with the phrase "I love ...?".
    • In the March 2014 issue of Onnanoko to Tame no Kuchikomi & Tōkō Magazine, there is a summary of Serena where among her character description it says that she has special feelings towards Ash. There is also another character connection table with an arrow from Serena to Ash that says "very interested in".
      • The aforementioned magazine also includes a poster with Ash and Serena (Clemont and Bonnie are clearly missing) surrounded by Pokémon and hearts. Serena is holding a heart while looking up at Ash.
  • There is another official poster from Animedia Magazine of only Serena and Ash sitting next to each other and holding drinks.
  • On the official Pokémon movie website for Japan, there is a quiz where one question asks what the dialogue from Serena was at the end of Summer of Discovery! and one of the options is Serena saying, "My dream is, to become Satoshi’s bride… AH! I am embarrassed!"

It should be noted that unlike when he gave those gifts to Casey and Iris, he gave Serena the ribbon without any advice from another person.
