370Luvdisc.png This article is about shipping.
As hints and evidence for ships are mostly speculation, this page may contain personal points of view.

Ash and Cilan

CafeMochaShipping (Japanese: デンサト DenSato or サトデン SatoDen) is the belief that Ash and Cilan belong in a romantic relationship. The name was coined from Cilan's work in a cafe and the fact that Ash's skin tone is darker than Cilan's, ultimately as a pun off the drink. It can be considered a rival of BoulderShipping.

Evidence

Ash's hints

At the beginning of the episode, Ash remarks that Cilan's sandwiches are the best he's ever had. Later during dinner, Ash asks Dwebble if Cilan's food is the best, implying that he think it is good. Also, when Pansage falls ill, he thanks Iris and Axew for helping Cilan's Pansage even though Pansage is not his Pokémon.
Ash is visibly concerned and upset that Cilan is not acting like himself after being possessed by Yamask's mask. When the mask comes off and Cilan returns to normal, he says, "Cilan! Thank goodness. You okay?" with a concerned voice.
Ash and Cilan smiling at one another
Ash stares intently at Cilan as he explains to Cabernet that he has wonderful relationship with each of his Pokémon. Hearing his kind words, Ash can't help but give him a smile.
Later, just before Cabernet and Cilan's battle, Cabernet begins to say that if Cilan loses the battle, he would have to let her replace all of Ash's Pokémon. Ash protests this and whines to Cilan to say something in a way that sounded like he wanted to be protected from Cabernet. Fans find this somewhat significant as Ash usually defends himself in these kind of situations and felt intimidated enough by Cabernet to look to Cilan for assistance.
When Cilan poses after taking out his fishing rod, Ash smiles at him and says that he is cool. He is also thoroughly impressed by Cilan's fishing skills and watches with admiration as he reels in Stunfisk.

Cilan's hints

  • While Iris often doubts Ash's battle strategies, Cilan encourages them and believes that Ash will figure some way to make it work.
After their battle, Cilan comments on the nice "flavor" that Ash and Iris have together. Iris moves to leave and Cilan asks if they were not traveling together. Indignantly, Iris states "We're not together!" and leaves. While Ash watches her go, Cilan looks down at Ash and smiles rather fondly.
Cilan followed Ash to the local Pokémon Center shortly after giving him the Trio Badge for defeating him in a Gym match. He explained that he was "intoxicated" by the bond that Ash had with his Pokémon in battle and was interested to know more about him. He then proceeds to ask Ash questions about how to bring out his Pokémon's innermost talents while climbing over the table that separated them to get closer to him.
Later in the episode, Cilan decides to leave his Gym Leader duties in order to travel to become a great Pokémon Connoisseur which was inspired by his battle with Ash. Instead of going off on his own, he stated that he wanted to follow Ash wherever he went.
When Trip refuses to battle Ash, Cilan eventually convinces him to do so.
Ash is told by a Connoisseur by the name of Cabernet that he had to replace all of his Pokémon because of bad compatibility. Cilan strongly disagreed with her and said that Ash had a close relationship to each of them and that her diagnosis was way off.
Before Cilan and Cabernet start their battle, she says that if she wins that he would have to accept that her diagnosis of Ash's Pokémon was correct. He tells her that there was no way that he would lose showing that he was intent on protecting Ash's honor. When Ash becomes worried about what might happen, Cilan reassures him that as an A-class Sommelier, he cannot make a wrong diagnosis.
When a wild Ducklett ran off with Cilan's cloche on its head, Iris was the one who ran after it while Cilan chose to be the one to save Ash who had fallen into a pit. Fans find this somewhat significant because, as seen in Minccino-Neat and Tidy!, Cilan is very protective of his dinner ware but chose to look for Ash instead of his cloche.
After Venipede head butts Ash in the chest, he collapsed from the effects of its poison. Cilan quickly created a remedy and then spoon feeds it to him while Burgh and Iris chose to help Venipede instead.
