As hints and evidence for ships are mostly speculation, this page may contain personal points of view.

Anabel blushing after shaking hands with Ash

AbilityShipping (Japanese: サトリラ SatoLila) is the belief that Ash and Anabel, the Salon Maiden of the Battle Tower, belong in a romantic relationship. Canonically, this Ship is one-sided on Anabel's part, with Ash oblivious to her feelings.

Evidence

Anabel and Ash laughing together

Ash's hints

  • Talking a Good Game!
    • Ash relies on Anabel to get him out of trouble with a swarm of Beedrill.
    • Ash seems very interested in Anabel's ability to tune herself into nature.

Anabel's hints

  • Talking a Good Game!
    • Shortly after the two meet a Gyarados attacks them, and Anabel stands up to try and protect Ash even though she hardly knows him.
  • Second Time's the Charm!
    • Anabel offers to help Ash clean up his Tauros and has fun playing with him in the lake.
    • After Ash fails to establish a mind-link with Corphish Anabel suggests that he attempt to "see what is in [her] heart," which he fails to do. Nevertheless, she reassures him, saying, "That's okay. You're fine the way you are." The camera then zooms into a close up shot of her eyes, which are watering.
    • When Ash is leaving the Battle Tower and the two say their good-byes, the two share a handshake. Afterward, Anabel looks at her hand and blushes, and with a smile thinks to herself, "Guess you can't sense feelings yet, Ash, or you would've sensed my feelings for you."

Other hints

  • Both Trainers get along very well and have fun together.
  • When they get out of the lake, they both smile and laughed at each other.

Alternate names

TowerShipping - an erroneous name fans dubbed the couple; is defunct by TowerShipping being the allotted term for Rafe and Ash.
