Yeah, that's because for some reason, part of the url wasn't included in the hyperlink, so just copy an dpaste then. ANd I don't really know, nor care, as it is Drew, and I never liked him. (maybe I'm a rival of ContestShipping, how odd.)

There's a lot of parallels that happen with people and their pokemon, and I think that can help to support a ship.
- Brianna had two pokemon that were unevolved forms of two of Drew's pokemon. She had a surskit and vibrava, this can always parallel to Drew's Masquerain and Flygon.
- May has no Pokemon the same to Drew, but potentially has three Pokemon the same to Ash, Bulbasaur, Squirtle and if Munchlax evolves, she'll have Snorlax as well. - Both Ash and May have fully evolved Fire Starters, Blaziken and Charizard. - Both Ash and May have more than one starter Pokemon, Ash with a whopping nine (Bulbasaur, Charizard, Squirtle, Bayleef, Cyndaquil, Totodile, Sceptile, Turtwig and Chimchar) and May with three (Blaziken, Bulbasaur and Squirtle). - Then there's Vineshipping which I will beat to death against any contest shipper. 'nuff said.
Drew as a character is well, a bit of an ass. He works so much better as an antagonist and rival rather than a love interest. I also think the only reason he might even like May is because she doesn't fawn over him like Brianna does. This is a good thing. Ash and Drew are two parallels, Ash is a flawed character and that's what makes him so likeable. Drew has less flaws and seems to know a lot, making him a dull character. I don't think many contestshippers see beyond this. Ash and May has a lot more potential with regards to relationship development. Both characters are flawed, think with their stomachs and can be oblivious to things at times. They share a lot of moments where they have identical expressions (one example is when they told Brock off for yelling at a Bonsly in the Lucario movie).
Many contestshippers like to argue that May went with Drew. No she didn't. She went to travel alone, to compete with Drew, Harley and Solidad. Why the heck would you travel with your rival anyway? Sounds pretty stupid to me, why would you give away all your secrets and training with the person you're trying to beat?
In my opinion, this ship is not a threat to Advanceshipping. Even though they like to think they are.
And to continue on the reason for why May went to Johto is that she wanted to beat Solidad more than anyone. She's beaten Harley plenty of times and she was even able to finally beat Drew in the Kanto Grand Festival, yet she lost to Solidad. I think that she wants to go up against Solidad more than any of the others, because for the first part of her coordinating career her goal (as well as Ash's) was to beat Drew. She accomplished this but soon after found someone more powerful And in taking off of Ash she won't let someone who beat her to live with it too long.
