~ In the episode Love At First Flight while Ash and May are watching the Volbeats and Illumise perform, May mentions something about love being a beautiful thing and winked at Ash. She then tells him that he'll understand what she means when he's older, the volbeat and illumese even make a heart.
~ In the episode Get The Show On The Road!, May yells, "Yes!" when she could travel with Ash and I think she liked Ash the first time she saw him and the first time her saw her. ( Love At First Sight). Also when pikachu destroyed May's bike she didn't care, all she cared about was that pikachu was better and that Ash was happy.

The two fall down to the ground with his arm around her torso. This is the third time Ash has saved May from danger. In the middle of the episode, Ash and May are separated from the group. May does her expedition routine and thinks about the concept of being lost with Ash in the woods forever. This idea causes her to have little red blushes on her cheeks. During the last act of the episode, May misses her chance to catch the ferry to her final Contest. In despair, she starts to cry. Sensing her pain, Ash puts his hands on her shoulders and stares at her deeply in the eyes, giving her the courage to go on while he takes care of her little brother. This is the first time in the series that Ash had ever put his hands on a girl in such a serious and compassionate manner.
~ In the episode On A Wingull And A Prayer, May looks out to sea and thinks about Ash yelling at her previous that day, which makes her slightly blush.
~ Quite at the end of The Bicker The Better, when they battle together against TR, their team work is perfect. What did the Tag Battle couple say before? A strong relationship between the two trainers is needed to win in a tag battle

The two have dinner together in a Pokemon Center, and when Ash wants to find out about the Petalburg Gym leader, May frantically pulls him by the arm to prevent him from finding out. It would appear that she was far more content with traveling with Ash alone before revisiting her family.
~ In the episode stairway to Devon when Ash and May discover that a Team Aqua intruder is in the building and Max could be in potential danger, she clasps her hands and asks Ash for reassurance and support. Once Ash comforts her, she is relieved. This is the first of many scenes where May continually looks toward Ash for support and reassurance, further expanding on the mentor/student dynamic.
~ In the episode Brave the wave on Dewford Island, May decides to strip into a bikini right on the beach. However, instead of just running down to the shore to take a swim, she purposely poses in her bikini in front of Ash and her brother and asks what they think. Ash appears to be embarrassed by the situation.
~ The biggest question is "DID ASH REALLY KISS MAY"!!! The answer is YES!!! They kissed in either the pokemon ranger and the temple of the sea movie or they say in episode 357.
~ A Tail With a Twist. Torchic was in trouble and Treecko saved it. But 'ya see, just a few minutes ago Max had said that a Pokeon's personality depended a lot on its trainer's personality. So think about it; Torchic (May) saved by Treecko (Ash).
~ Becoming a good friend with a pokemon (Larvitar and Swablu) and then leave them behind.
~ Having a rival which keeps beating the one. (Drew+Gary)
~ Both knew nothing about pokemon in the beginning of the journey. Btw didn't Ash make this mistake in the ep where he caught Treecko, too? He wanted to catch it by throwing a pokeball but May corrected him

~ When Ash was stuck in a snow storm May was holding his praying he was okay and when he was stuck in a snow storm in the old episodes all Misty did was sock in a hot tob and not worry.
~ Both have Squirtles.
~ Misty is to old for Ash shes like Tracey or Brocks age, May is Ashes age for sure.
~ If you think Ash cares about Misty more than May, YOU ARE CRAZY. Everytime May battles or does something dangerous he does nothing but worry about her. And everytime shes in trouble he comes to her rescue.

Pokemon Movie Hints
~ The movie "pokemon ranger and the temple of the sea" had some of the biggest hints of all like when Ash & May had an adventure trying to survive in the temple of the sea when it was flooding and when ash was putting may in the capsule he said "may, get in here it's phantoms, come on you got a" when he said "you got a" it show that he really cares about her and doesn't want her to get hurt, and when he was gone she was hoping a praying that he all right.
~ During that whole movie Ash was watching May and Manaphy, so I think Ash was realizing that he likes he because he saw how good May took care of manaphy. But when May had to stay away from Manaphy he felt so bad.
~ Lots of people accuse them of being a couple EVEN MANAPHY! Manaphy calls May "Ba Da" he also calls Ash that and Manaphy only lets Ash or May hold him like when Jackie and Ash switched body's.~ One the most important hint of all is when they were swimming together. Ash was just staring at May and while they were swimming LUVDICS appeared and they say if to people love each other very much while there together Luvdic will appear and that means they will be together forever. ~ In "pokemon lucario and the mystery of mew" well first ill say how cute Ash & May looked in those outfits :). This doesn't have many hints but some like when Ash found out pikachu was missing and when Ash was fighting with Lucario May was stopping the fight so Ash won't get hurt and calming Ash down so he won't worry that much.
~ In the movie "pokemon destiny deoxys" This guy named Sin is hitting on May because he likes her and if you look at Ash he has a mad and jealous face on, and when Ash was fighting with that little boy again May comes to stop the fight because she cares about Ash. (i couldn't find the real pic of Ashes jealousy) ~ In the movie "pokemon jirachi wish maker" while May was making wishes, singing or looking at the sky Ash was always just staring at her. Also they May's wish had something to do with Ash.
( I don't have any pics sorry)
Once in a Mawile - The funny conversation May and Ash have (in the dub at least)
Ash: "No sense going out of your way to make someone like you."
May: "Spoken like a man."
The Right Place At The Right Mime - Ash asks May whether she wants to travel with him again and she accepts.. Delia sees them both and blushes twice.
On Cloud Arcanine - The scene where Ash is hungry, well it's funny isn't it?
~ May always looks at Ash in a way like shes trying to tell him she like him.
~ Ash and May even where he same color clothes. (Just Saying)
Fear Factor Phony - The scene where May wakes up scared and she goes to Ash first.
Once More With Reeling! and Home Is Where The Start Is - Ash and May have a contest battle that results in a tie. Ash has sceptile split their ribbon in half.
And then before May and Max leave on the boat, there is this cute scene from the original Japanese version. I don't know what Max says in the dubbed version.
*Note: Onee-chan means 'older sister' in Japanese. Max is referring to May.
~ It's obvious Drew likes May and that's why Ash doesn't like Drew. The first time Ash met Drew he didn't like the way Drew treated May by insulted her contest skills. So in May's first contest when Drew went up and did his performance Ash said "That was okay, i guess" in an angry and jealous way, and that's when whenever Ash talks to Drew Ash gives him an aditude.
