CrystalShipping (Japanese: ミナクリ MinaKuri) is the belief that Eusine and Crystal belong in a romantic relationship. CrystalShipping has a smaller following compared to other major Pokémon Adventures ships, but remains relatively popular. It is occasionally seen as the rival Ship of MangaQuestShipping and SpecialJewelShipping.
- Round 127, Miltank Melee
- After Eusine first meets Crystal and flies off to continue his chase, he drops a card with an autographed photo of him that says, "With love...♥ Eusine"
- Later, Crystal confronts Eusine about tricking the couple at the Moo Moo Farm. Eusine tackles Crystal out of the way of an Ice Beam despite the fact they were arguing moments before.
- Round 128, Indubitably Ditto
- After Crystal defeats the Ditto that trapped her and Eusine, Eusine thinks, "What a girl! She's indeed a worthy rival!" (Chuang Yi version; in the VIZ version, he thinks, "What a resourceful combatant! A rival worthy of...ME!")
- Later, while chasing after Suicune and Team Rocket, Eusine suggests they split up, and that he will take on Team Rocket and Crystal should go after Suicune. Crystal is concerned and asks him if he's okay with that, and Eusine affirms his decision.
- Round 132, Suddenly Suicune (Part 3)
- Eusine arrives at the base of the Tin Tower to find Crystal unconscious on the ground. He immediately goes over to her to see if she is okay, then carries her up to the top floor of the Tin Tower. He is elated when Crystal awakens, but she is upset that she let Suicune get away, and Eusine comforts her.
- When they part ways, Eusine kisses Crystal on the hand and tells her he enjoyed the time they spent together.
- Round 172, The Last Battle VI
- Crystal rushes over to see Eusine as he emerges from the Crystal Wall with Misty and Suicune. He smiles and winks at her, but before they can say anything, the remaining half of the Masked Man's body attacks them. Eusine puts up his arm in front of Crystal to block the attack, but Falkner drives it off before it can strike.
- Round 448, VS Parasect
- After re-encountering Silver and taking him along with her, Crystal tells Silver that while Eusine may be strange, he is a great and trustworthy person.
The name is derived from the characters' game counterparts debuting in Pokémon Crystal; CrystalShipping is also a shared name with the game counterparts.
