Just love when people bump my silly old threads. I mean this thread and the Is Natsu's relationship with Lucy going be like Haru and Elie's? get a ton of views for some odd reason. Makes me happy.
I think they retcon out for Sarena. Sarena (I think misspelled her name) met Ash when they were young in Kanto. It was weird seeing a gal who tag along and hold that hankerchief (metaphorically, feelings) for Ash.
