Just stick your name in... PsychicFile:Ani475MS.gif Agent 448Talk | DP Fighting 01:36, 13 October 2007 (UTC)

I'd like to help. The shipping section is the part of this site I read the most! :) Hikari

I like to read about couples. How more do I like to help out on articles about couples! How do I join? Big-Time Crush On Ash 02:28, 26 October 2007 (UTC)

Thanks Cerberus 22:00, 8 December 2007 (UTC)

Umm... May I join too? And can anyone explain how to sign in? I'm sort of new to this --AmberFire 284 (Erm, I think I did it... am I right?)

I would like to join--Paul'sDialga

I've been wanting to join this for awhile. And how do I make the link to my user page blue instead of red? It says I don't have permission to edit. But I'm not trying to edit, just linking to the page. -- Dani

Add your name to the member list on this page. You won't be able to do anything to your own user page just yet, though. The link is red because the page doesn't exist; to create the page, you have to edit the page; and nobody can edit their pages right now because the Admins have put a ban on userspace edits in place. --Martonimos((Talk)) 16:57, 9 May 2008 (UTC)

I would also like to join--Buneary_Piplup

This sounds great, so I'd like to join, too.-- ottomaniac123


Culd i join 2? I kno tons of ships and evidence =)--emovampire1

Tag

How can I do the Tag to the Project Shipping? I don't konw how to do Tags.--File:038MS.gifうずまきSpr FRLG Leaf.pngハルカSpr RS May.png02:46, 13 October 2007 (UTC)

Apparently, they had no time to make a tag for Project Shipping... PsychicFile:Ani475MS.gif Agent 448Talk | DP Fighting 02:47, 13 October 2007 (UTC)

It's because of this that I want to do the Tag, but I don't know how.--File:038MS.gifうずまきSpr FRLG Leaf.pngハルカSpr RS May.png02:52, 13 October 2007 (UTC)

I think I might know how.. but I'm not a member ^^; TinaTheKirliaFile:281MS.gif 02:54, 13 October 2007 (UTC)

That's OK, I just need some help to do the Tag, you don't need to be a member of this Project to help me.-- File:038MS.gifうずまきSpr FRLG Leaf.pngハルカSpr RS May.png 02:55, 13 October 2007 (UTC)

Here's the tag BASE - go ahead and edit it and such.. like change the image, rewrite the sentence.. that's the base. User:TinaTheKirlia/Sandbox/Tag. TinaTheKirliaFile:281MS.gif 03:05, 13 October 2007 (UTC)
70px This article is part of Project Shipping, a Bulbapedia project that aims to write comprehensive articles on each couple in Pokémon.

Well, here is the best thing that I can think, so, how is it?--File:038MS.gifうずまきSpr FRLG Leaf.pngハルカSpr RS May.png03:26, 13 October 2007 (UTC)

And, how about this? Is that good?-- File:038MS.gifうずまきSpr FRLG Leaf.pngハルカSpr RS May.png 03:38, 13 October 2007 (UTC)

Good enough for now... PsychicFile:Ani475MS.gif Agent 448Talk | DP Fighting 04:21, 13 October 2007 (UTC)

Homoshiping

Shou we point out which ships are homsexuel in the redrets? Cerberus 16:50, 19 October 2007 (UTC)

No, I don't think need this. Why do you think so?-- File:038MS.gifうずまきSpr FRLG Leaf.pngハルカSpr RS May.png17:32, 19 October 2007 (UTC)

You'd know if it was or not, because the shippings say the names. If it's two guys or girls... well, you know the deal. Don't think we need this, but it was a sorta good idea. TinaTheKirlia File:Ani281MS.gif 17:37, 19 October 2007 (UTC)

Just in case people can't tell from the title like 3rd weal shiping I thought is was Brock and May. for exmple. Cerberus 21:18, 19 October 2007 (UTC)

We could name the characters in the redirects. That way viewers could know if it is a pairing they want to avoid without us implying anything negative about homosexuality. --FabuVinny T-C-S 02:16, 22 November 2007 (UTC)

Thats a good idea. Cerberus 17:45, 7 December 2007 (UTC)

I didn't even think there were any homoshipping articles... There isn't is there? GuyNamedSean 07:49, 19 December 2008 (UTC)

Yes, there is.

This is a BIG project

I'm glad there is interest in improving the shipping articles. Just bear in mind that they need a lot of work.
My input is this: Lose the evidence lists. If we replace them with prose from the perspective of why fans believe in the particular pairings then the articles will become far more encyclopediac. That way, we can describe them in a more truthful manner and acknowledge the few ships that are actually canon. Does this sound agreeable? --FabuVinny T-C-S 02:14, 22 November 2007 (UTC)

Well, to me it's good in this way. -32pxうずまき ハルカSpr RS May.png 19:27, 22 November 2007 (UTC)

It's perfect. Pokemaniac102

Names

Are we running out of names for ships? Cerberus 02:42, 6 December 2007 (UTC)

I wouldn't think so. Tina δ 02:45, 6 December 2007 (UTC)
No way, man, no way. TTEchidnaFire echyGSDS! 03:31, 6 December 2007 (UTC)

I'm just saying some ships have dumb names. Cerberus 17:49, 7 December 2007 (UTC)

It's because half of the ships (no offense to anyone!) are rather crazy anyway. I mean... I always considered one of the rules for making a new ship, number one being 'It HAS to be something rather twisted.' But that's just me. XD; Tina δ 18:15, 7 December 2007 (UTC)
Once all the sensible ships are covered, it's inevitable to go crazy from there. Which ships have dumb names anyway? --FabuVinny T-C-S 18:22, 7 December 2007 (UTC)

"HandymanShipping",...-32pxうずまき ハルカSpr RS May.png 18:28, 7 December 2007 (UTC)

Tracey does lots of odd jobs around the Gym just because Daisy asks him to. --FabuVinny T-C-S 20:52, 7 December 2007 (UTC)

All of Brocks Ships have bad names. Cerberus 21:43, 7 December 2007 (UTC)

Really? BoulderShipping, FatherShipping, GymShipping... I dunno, those are good names.. Tina δ 21:46, 7 December 2007 (UTC)

There are just 5 Shippings with good names: PalletShipping, PokéShipping, ContestShipping, GymShipping and AdvanceShipping. -32pxうずまき ハルカSpr RS May.png 21:59, 7 December 2007 (UTC)

I agre with her, but I will add Rocketshiping to that. Cerberus 01:49, 8 December 2007 (UTC)


I'm beginning to get really confused by all the ship names. Why do we favor one ship title over another? Just because it's more "popular"? Shipping is just a weird part of the site in general, but why do we need to reference some list (incomplete list of shippers)? A lot of it is so arbitrary and almost embarrassing to list on the site as an article title. Could I make a suggestion that maybe we change the naming convention so it simply lists the characters involved in the title? i.e. "Shipping:Ash/Misty". That way there's less explanation needed and we avoid awkward situations like the guy who stumbled upon ThirdWheelShipping and didn't expect it to be a homosexual ship. --Greengiant 21:19, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

That might work, by the way I was that guy. Cerberus

I'm thinking maybe add the names of the characters to the shipping redirect. TTEchidnaFire echyGSDS! 01:43, 13 December 2007 (UTC)

I aprove. Cerberus

These are the titles the fandom uses so of course we have to use them. If you want to check what a ship is called, go check the list. --FabuVinny T-C-S 01:19, 14 December 2007 (UTC)

Question

If for example Dawn sates that she is a lesbian, will that slam the lid on PearlShipping? Cerberus 16:22, 12 December 2007 (UTC)☆

I really think that'd never happen. No other character (Except maybe Harley. Just in a different way.) have screamed 'I'M GAY' or 'I'M STRAIGHT'. Tina δ 17:13, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

We are talking hypificaly here. And I agre Harly's gay. Cerberus 17:23, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

Why would Dawn ever state that she is or is not a lesbian? Romance is a minor part of this show. There is no reason for the sexuality of the characters to ever come up.
Plus, why single out PearlShipping anyway? The only thing that will slam it down is if another ship involving Dawn is confirmed as canon and that will count against all the others as well. --FabuVinny T-C-S 20:04, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

Forget it. Cerberus 21:00, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

Overall Goals?

Can I get an example of a really good shipping article? Something to work toward and emulate for other pages?

Also, someone mentioned ways to get the pages more encyclopedic? Are there any other suggestions?

As far as evidence lists go, I do think that the pages are focused a bit too much on them. It makes them all seem like little fan pages, and some of them are beyond a stretch of the imagination. I also think an important thing to note is that Japanese fansites focus far less of "evidence." Their fanart and fanfiction deals with an idealized situation of what it would be like for the characters to be together. Although the coupling would never work in canon--something that American sites seem to be out to "prove" could work--the Japanese seem to ignore all that.

What would the articles be if you took out the evidence? I think that's a big question we need to ask ourselves. Not to say that should happen, but there should be a bigger reason for them, I think. --Greengiant 21:40, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

I have no Idea. Cerberus 01:35, 13 December 2007 (UTC)
We'd still have the evidence, just not in full lists. Articles on canon ships would discuss the actual events that show the nature of the ship. Articles on fanon ships would simply state why some fans are convinced that the writers are going that way. --FabuVinny T-C-S 01:17, 14 December 2007 (UTC)

Yes fan Ships, I have a great Fan Ship in my Sandbox. Cerberus

Pikachu

I think Pikachu should have a Ships with category. Cerberus 18:12, 14 December 2007 (UTC)

It's good. 32pxうずまき ハルカSpr RS May.png 19:25, 14 December 2007 (UTC)

i mean Thee should be "Ships with pikachu" Cerberus

Got it Paul and J! it's perfit. Cerberus

Rules on new page

I was wondering, what is the rule on creating a new shipping page? Can anyone create one? I want to create a shipping page for Dawn's Piplup x Ash's Pikachu (which I have named BubbleSparkShipping). I saw nothing in the article, and figured this was the best place to ask... The Dark Fiddler - Smarter than the average bear! 19:27, 11 October 2008 (UTC)

You just need to have some good hints. Not too stupid, and please, more than 3 lines in an article would be good, altough some shipping articles have less than this...うずまきハルカ 01:20, 12 October 2008 (UTC)
Ash's Pikachu/Dawn's Piplup is actually called LightningPearlshipping, for the record. ArcToraphim 20:39, 16 October 2008 (UTC)
(Is tempted to ignore that) Thanks for the info... The Dark Fiddler - Smarter than the average bear! 20:41, 16 October 2008 (UTC)
You can ignore it...but if you did create the page under BubbleSpark, then I'd be forced to change it, to keep to standard as ordained by the List. And then you won't like that, and will attempt to revert it. It'll turn into an edit war, and if no one catches us right away, you'll come to my talk page to bitch, you'll realize this isn't the first time I had to fight for the Standard 'shipping name, and I've won each time because the List is what's considered "correct" by officialdom. So you can try. I'm just warning you if you do ignore it. ...We keep things standard for a reason, I hope you can understand. ArcToraphim 12:20, 17 October 2008 (UTC)
Who the heck decides on these names? Just this one person that makes this "list"? --ケンジガール 07:59, 19 December 2008 (UTC)
Priority of time decides. Submit a name first, or show you named such and such before a submission is made, that name becomes it. ...It's a process. All names are made by the people and the controller of the list is the one responsible for officiating the names. It's just a matter of common use and "who named it first" that makes a name "official". Luna Tiger * the Arc Toraph 17:33, 12 January 2009 (UTC)

NeoShipping

Neoshipping is a popular shipping, especially among Rocketshippers, yet there is no page. I couldn't make this, as I do not know of any hints (seeing of my lack of watching episodes with Cassidy And Butch)

Could someone make this? SD13 Simpsondude13>SD13 Talk 22:07, 20 December 2008 (UTC)

ME

Can I join? When it comes to shipping, I can really help out and i really like a lot of ships. Well, I think I know a shippy scene when I see one, like when I saw DP 106 on YouTube, I saw the scene with Ash saving Dawn and I went to the Pearl Shipping page to put it there......only to see that somebody had already done that. So?--DRAGONBEASTX 01:43, 1 January 2009 (UTC)

Anyway, since it seems like all I have to do is sign on the project page, okay, I'll sign and try my best on helping the project.--DRAGONBEASTX 05:15, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

New Shipping

I've anilized Pikachu and Ash and my "reserch" has come up with many theories, the best one being that there is a new shipping there! I mean think about it, Pikachu not staying in the Poké Ball, Ash's lack of crushes on females and males, the fact that they can't be apart... and when you add evidence from Electric Tale of Pikachu, one episode details, and the movies this has the potential to become one of the longest shippings on Bulbipedia!--Spriting-princess 02:03, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

Then I suggest you look into this. Luna Tiger * the Arc Toraph 03:21, 8 February 2009 (UTC)

CheekyShipping

I was thinking of starting a CheekyShipping article (MiraXMax/MiruXMasato, whichever). This would be acceptable, yes? シンジShinjiLover,Edits 00:24, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

You can, but it's going to fall very short as an appropriate article, considering its nevermet status; it wouldn't be any larger than the OutcryShippingShipping article. I prefer focus on the 'ships that need articles rather than everyone's small pet 'ships, but there's not much stopping you from doing it anyway. Luna Tiger * the Arc Toraph 18:08, 12 February 2009 (UTC)

SeedDeshoShipping

It's the shipping of AshXShaymin. This is a popular shipping that no one has made an article about. Tsukaiz

It's semi-popular, yes. But so are many pairings; May/Manaphy was popular around the time of the ninth movie, yet there's not article about it. The fact that there is no article simply means no one's bothered to make one. Luna Tiger * the Arc Toraph 15:00, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

Riley...

Well, there were a lot of hints through DP110 and DP111, for RileyXDawn or RileyXAsh. I believe RileyXAsh would be a good shipping. What would it be named? IronShipping? Tandra88 01:57, 18 August 2009 (UTC)tandra88

It's called AuraProtectShipping. Riley and Dawn is called IronWillShipping. --ケンジガール 02:02, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

Ok..thank you. Tandra88 12:05, 18 August 2009 (UTC)tandra88


Reggie and Maylene

Is their an article for the ship between Reggie and Maylene? It is pretty popular especailly for the supporters of Ikarishipping. Is it called Curtainshipping? Mudkipluvr4ever 23:26, 28 February 2010 (UTC)

It is and there /was/ an article, but it was removed due to not enough content to support it, leaving it eternally a stub. Support alone isn't enough to base a article off. Luna Tiger * the Arc Toraph 23:31, 28 February 2010 (UTC)
Okay thanks, just wanted to know. Also i started a Johtofestashipping article on my userpage at User:Mudkipluvr4ever/johtofestashipping, please check it out. Mudkipluvr4ever 00:33, 1 March 2010 (UTC)
Ah, good. Would you allow me permission to edit it some? Luna Tiger * the Arc Toraph 00:56, 1 March 2010 (UTC)
Totally, go for it. Also I couldn't find a picture so maybe you could? Mudkipluvr4ever 01:02, 1 March 2010 (UTC)

Hey I started a Nekoshipping page at User:Mudkipluvr4ever/Nekoshipping, please check it out. Mudkipluvr4ever 19:35, 12 March 2010 (UTC)

Dewshipping

Has anyone ever heard of Dewshipping? LatiosxBianca (Pokemon Heros)? it's a semi-popular ship. Culd i make a page for Dewshipping? And what do u all think about the ship?
