As hints and evidence for ships are mostly speculation, this page may contain personal points of view.

Iris and Cilan

WishfulShipping (Japanese: デンアイ DenAi) is the belief that Iris and Cilan belong in a romantic relationship. This Ship can be considered akin to GymShipping, as there have been comparisons made between not only the characters, but with the relationship itself. The name was coined after the Japanese name of the series, Best Wishes, as well as hopeful intentions for the future. Currently, it is the main pairing of the Best Wishes series, along with NegaiShipping.

Anime evidence

Iris's hints

Iris appears to love Cilan's cooking and compliments it. She also states, "If I can eat like this everyday, traveling together won't be so bad," and then giggles afterward.
Iris chooses to battle Cilan rather than Ash because she knew Ash would be too hasty and might hurt Axew. This shows that she felt much safer battling Cilan. She later says that he and Pansage adjust to her and Axew like "gentlemen."
Iris becomes frustrated when Cilan refuses to believe her hunch that a demon resided inside the Nacrene Museum. Later, Iris becomes concerned over Yamask's mask possessing Cilan, attempting to help remove it.

Cilan's hints

As a Pokémon Sommelier, Cilan notices right away that Iris is a good match for her Axew.
When Cilan joins Ash on his journey, he asks Ash where Iris went. Cilan is visibly pleased when she reappears and is the first to suggest that they travel together as a group.
When Iris says, "Your cooking is delicious," he replies back, "Your compliment means a lot. Thank You."
Cilan battles Iris in order to help her Axew gain some battle experience, and he asks his Pansage to weaken his attacks to 20% of their original power so that Axew will have a fair chance at Iris's request. He later tells her that it is a pleasure to take orders from her.
In the middle of the night, Cilan wakes up to see Ishizumai watching over Pansage who is suffering from a fever. Cilan assures Ishizumai that because of Iris's medicine, he would be fine by morning. This shows that Cilan has great confidence in Iris's abilities.
Cilan seems to enjoy teasing Iris with his skeptical attitude towards her apparent "sixth sense".

Similarities

  • Both are known Gym Leaders in Pokémon White. In addition, they also share their gym with at least one other leader under different circumstances.
  • Both are shown to have a special skill that Ash's former traveling companion, Brock, also had. Cilan knows how to cook and Iris knows how to make medicine.
