Misty getting complimented by Rudy

DanceShipping is the belief that Misty and Rudy belong in a romantic relationship. Despite the fact that Rudy only appeared in the episode Misty Meets Her Match, there were many hints. DanceShipping can also be considered a minor rival Ship to PokéShipping and OrangeShipping. Its name originates from the fact that Rudy, on two different occasions, offers to dance with Misty. It can be considered a one-sided ship on Rudy's side.

Evidence

Misty and Rudy dancing

Misty's hints

  • After several advances from Rudy, Misty agrees to what is essentially an impromptu date with Rudy, leaving Ash and Tracey to themselves.
  • During the dance after dinner, Rudy asks Misty to stay with him and his sister on the island. Misty didn't refuse him right away and gives his offer some thought.
  • Misty is torn between Rudy and Ash during their Gym match, clearly not knowing which boy meant more to her, but roots for Ash in the end.

Rudy's hints

  • Rudy develops a case of "love at first sight" with Misty after she saves his sister Mahri and her Seel from the whirlpool.
  • Instead of paying attention to his challenger Ash, Rudy puts all his effort in courting and impressing Misty.
  • Prior to the fight, Rudy asks Misty if she wanted to stay with him on the island and gives her time to decide. According to the Japanese version, Rudy also asks Misty to marry him.
  • In the final round of the gym battle, Rudy declares, "I dedicate this fight to the girl who saved my sister and stole my heart."
  • When Rudy realizes by the end of the battle that Misty preferred Ash, he looks utterly stunned and whispers, "She wants him," in the context that she chooses Ash over him. It's considered a hint that he's not only in tune to Misty's feelings, he's willing to respect them in the end.

Similarities

  • Rudy and Misty both enjoy dancing and are quite good at it.
  • Both of them are Gym Leaders: Misty is the Gym Leader of Cerulean City, while Rudy is the Gym Leader of Trovita Island.
  • The two of them own the same species of Pokémon: a Starmie.

Alternate names

  • CitrusShipping - from the citrus fruit theme of the Orange Islands
