Anime Ships are undoubtedly the most popular kind of shipping in the Pokémon fanbase.

List of main character ships

A list of ships involving two main characters who have met.

AlfShipping

AshMax
(サトマサ SatoMasa)

Evidence

  • Throughout their time together, Max has always shown great admiration for Ash. But he has also took pleasure out of taunting him for not knowing something.
Max was extremely excited to meet Ash, whom he recognized from watching the Silver Conference on television.
Max is so upset by Ash leaving that he runs off by himself. When Ash finds him, he reassures him that they will always be friends and promises to battle him someday after he becomes a Trainer. This makes Max happy leading him to accept the separation.

Name origins

  • Alf comes from Max incorrectly referring to Ash by this name when they first met.


AnnemaeShipping

IrisDawn
(アイヒカ AiHika)


Similarities

  • Both own a male walking Pokémon that has not evolved yet and can evolve twice.
  • Both on an Electric-type, squirrel-like Pokémon.
  • Both own an evolved dual Ground-type that used to disobey them.
  • Both have taken extra measures to cheer for Ash during a Gym battle. Dawn dressed up like a cheerleader for some of Ash's Gym battles while Iris played a drum during his battle with Homika.


DebateShipping

TraceyMax
(ケンマサ KenMasa)

Evidence

Max is thoroughly impressed by Tracey's artistic skills and refers to him as sir. Tracey thanks him and says he could just call him by his first name. Max then imagines drawing Pokémon like he does. A bit later, Max asks Tracey if he could return the Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle that Professor Oak is giving to starting Trainers to their Poké Balls which Tracey lets him do.

Similarities

  • Both wear a similar attire, including a green shirt and shorts. They are also the only male protagonists to wear shorts rather than pants.
  • Both are the only main protagonists not to have an official in-game counterpart.

Trivia

  • DebateShipping is also used for Tracey and Gilbert.


GreeneyeShipping

JamesMisty
(コジカス KojiKasu)

Evidence

Misty is seen bandaging James's wounds after he and Jessie had lost their Pokémon to Butch and Cassidy.
Misty gets separated from Ash and Brock and ends up with James and Meowth. Feeling sorry for the both of them, she gives some of her lunch to them. Later when everyone escapes the raging Ursaring, James and Misty are seen holding each other in happiness.

Alternate names

  • AlternaShipping - Alternate name for James and Cassidy
  • AlternateShipping - Alternate name for Butch and Cassidy
  • OpressionShipping
  • RomeoShipping
  • TwerpyShipping
  • WhinyShipping

Name origins

  • Greeneye refers to James and Misty's eye colors.


GundamSeiyuuShipping

JamesCilan
(コジデン KojiDen)

Evidence

A group of Litwick and their Lampent leader open a mysterious vortex that nearly sucks in James, Jessie, and Meowth. Cilan is nearly sucked in as well after being hit by a Shadow Ball that knocks him off of his feet. He would have been sucked in completely but he is saved by James who grabs his arm. Earlier, James's life force had been drained by the Litwick who were accompanying him and his friends. Despite that and his feelings towards Ash and his friends, James decides to put his own safety aside and use what strength he has left to rescue Cilan. Some might argue, however, that he only rescued him as a return favor for Ash saving Jessie from the same fate. Others note that James chose to help who he may consider an enemy but did not attempt to try and save his friends before hand.

Name origins


SavantShipping

CilanDawn
(デンヒカ DenHika)


Similarities

  • Both have or have had fear of a certain Pokémon. Dawn was afraid of Plusle and Minun while Cilan is afraid of Purrloin. They also had to battle these Pokémon at some point.
  • Dawn is the first of Ash's female friends to obtain an Electric-type type while Cilan is the first male.


List of supporting character ships

This is a list of shippings involving a supporting character.

AgainstShipping

PaulZoey
(シンノゾ ShinNozo)

Evidence

  • Normally, Zoey is rather composed when faced with someone who puts down her friends, but with Paul she became more flustered than she usually would. Dawn is seen having to physically restrain her. Many would say that this would disprove the ship, but fans see it as Zoey becoming more emotional about what Paul thinks as compared to other people.

Similarities

Trivia

Name origins

  • Against comes from Paul and Zoey's nature as rivals: both are essentially against Ash and Dawn respectively, despite the bonds (or lack thereof) they have with each other.


BadTasteShipping

AshBurgundy
(サトカベ SatoCabe)

Evidence

Despite there being a long line of people waiting, Burgundy specifically calls on Ash to visit her shop. She also puts her hands on his shoulders several different times.
Burgundy appears concerned when Ash's Scraggy's Hi Jump Kick misses Simisage during the Clubsplosion tournament, enough to declare it a "bad taste".

Similarities


BusterShipping

GeorgiaIris
(ランアイ LanAi)

Evidence

  • Both Iris and Georgia seem to enjoy teasing one another often.
  • Though Georgia is Iris's rival, she really wants Iris to succeed in becoming a Dragon Master and those become a more worthy opponent. Though it's common among the "friendly" rivals, it far exceeds what is expected for an "unfriendly" rival who usually expect little of their rival (ex: Trip and Ash) or wish for them to fail (ex: Burgundy and Cilan).
  • Search for the Clubultimate!
Georgia is confident that Iris has the skill to defeat Burgundy in the first round of the Clubsplosion and also notes that she is a lot stronger than the last time she saw her. After Burgundy loses to Iris she declares that she will get her revenge on her and Georgia immediately confronts her about it saying that she is the only one that will defeat Iris. Later on when she battles Grace, Georgia waves her arms to get Iris's attention on the sidelines wanting her to watch her battle.
Georgia is disappointed when Iris loses to Montgomery in the second round.

Name origin

  • Buster comes from Georgia's Trainer title, Dragon Buster.



DiamondDragonShipping

StephanIris

(ノゾハル NozoHaru)

Similarities



MustardShipping

AshStephan
(サトケニ SatoKeni)

Similarities

  • Both have used a bicycle-powered generator to charge up their Electric-type Pokémon.

Name origin

  • Mustard refers to the color yellow which represents the Electric-type, referring to the fact that the first Pokémon seen in their possession was an Electric-type.


PersShipping

CilanStephan
(デンケニ DenKeni)

Evidence

After Cilan reminiscences about Ash and Georgia's battle, he turns to Stephan, staring wide-eyed at him, then asks if he felt the spiciness of the battle. A little bit later Stephan becomes very interested with the food that Cilan makes for Ash's Snivy and asks if he could make food for his Pokémon too. Cilan happily agrees to it.
Stephan named himself the judge of Cilan and Burgundy's Connoisseur battle. Before there battle even began, Stephan gave Cilan the win for the pre-game battle because he gave some wise words of wisdom. Later on his is greatly impressed by Cilan's evaluation of Ash and Iris's battle, not even bothering to judge Burgundy's skills, and said that it was no wonder that he was named an A-class Connoisseur by the Connoisseur's Association.
After Cilan tells Stephan that he has raised Sawk well at the Pokémon Center, Stephan blushes heavily.
Cilan prepared a special meal especially for Stephan and Sawk after he had made it to the final round of the Clubsplosion. He also smiles brightly at him before telling him to enjoy his meal.

Similarities


PokéSilverShipping

AshLyra
(サトコト SatoKoto)
Main article: Shipping:PokéSilverShipping

Evidence

Lyra admires Ash's courage and tells Khoury that he should be more like him.
While waiting to be rescued, Lyra wonders who she would most like to marry out of Ash, Khoury, and Brock. Lyra believes that Ash is the best candidate and then asks Dawn if she and Ash are a couple. This event can be interpreted two ways. Either she supports Ash and Dawn as a couple or she has a romantic interest in Ash and wonders if he has a girlfriend or not.
Lyra attempts to pair Dawn and Khoury together as a couple. Ash decides to go with Lyra to search for the Gible instead of going with Dawn.

Similarities


RaimonTownShipping

LukeBianca
(ルーベル LuBel)

Evidence

Bianca instantly took a liking to Luke's Zorua and later admired Luke for having her. Throughout the entire Club Battle she'd often kept close proximity with Luke. Luke also comments about Bianca's energy saying that she must take a lot of vitamins.
Luke trusts Bianca to film his battle with Iris despite letting Ash handle filming his battle with Cilan earlier, for him and when he finds out she missed the battle, filming Zorua instead, he shrugs it off pretty quickly.
The next day, Luke wished to get closer to the action as his position in the stands did not capture the action. He wanted a much lower angle to make the battle appear more dramatic. Bianca then suggests that Luke go onto the battlefield and film but he says that they are not allowed to go down there. She starts taunting him afterwards saying that he wouldn't become a great film director if he wouldn't take the chance. Wanting to prove that he could take the chance, he ventures on to the battlefield with Bianca happily following from behind. She even holds the boom microphone for him while filming. At the end of the episode, Bianca leaves with Luke to help him make his documentary and spend more time with Zorua.

Name origins


ServiceShipping

CilanBianca
(デンベル DenBel)

Evidence

Bianca states that Cilan's food is delicious and that she gives it "five stars" to which Cilan is grateful for.
Bianca takes an interest in Cilan's catchphrases and begins to use them for herself. Later when Bianca leaves the group, Cilan promises to make her a meal the next time they meet.
When the group decides they will enter a fishing competition, Cilan picks out a fishing rod for Bianca without even being asked to. A while later, Cilan briefly leaves the group to turn in his catch to the judges. When he exits the building, he sees Bianca struggling to hold on to something that she hooked. Immediately he runs to her side, even instructing Ash and Iris to move aside, and holds on to her fishing rod. While she was in charge of the reel, Cilan was the one to pull her catch, a Frillish, from the water.
Bianca is clearly the most excited when Cilan announces "It's Evaluating Time!" during his battle with Luke.


ShenlongShipping

CynthiaIris
(シロアイ ShiroAi)

Evidence

When Iris first meets Cynthia, she can be seen blushing heavily. Iris also had a hard time working up the nerve to ask Cynthia if she could have a battle with her.

Similartiies

Name origins


SpokeShipping

StephanBianca
(ケニベル KeniBel)

Evidence

Upon meeting Stephan, Bianca asks him how his name pronounced which is something no one else has done. Both of the ways she asked, however, were incorrect although Stephan did not bother to correct her.
After knocking tripping and knocking Ash into a body of water as she usually does, Bianca collapses on to Stephan and keeps her face planted against his chest for a few moments. Later on after Stephan passes to the second round of the Clubsplosion tournament, Bianca becomes enamored with his Sawk then asks if she could poke his muscles. He agrees and after she's finished she says that Sawk is the greatest. Stephan looks extremely confident and flattered after Bianca says that.
During the intermission of the Clubsplosion tournament, Bianca jumps on top of Stephan for a brief moment and wraps her arms around his neck. She then proceeds to squeeze his arms and his midsection in order to feel his muscles. Afterwards she grabs his arm and raises it in the air before announcing he is the winner of her "Macho Pokémon" contest.
Stephan shows noticeable excitement when he learns that he will face Bianca in the semi-final round of the Clubsplosion. Bianca also winks at him later on.

Similarities

  • Both are rivals of Ash that he met in Unova.
  • Both are part of a running gag. Bianca's is always knocking Ash into a body of water and Stephan's is no one being able to pronounce his name correctly.
  • Both own a Fighting-type Pokémon which tends to be the powerhouse of their teams.
  • Both at times display the similar personality traits of stubbornness and impatience.


TarragonShipping

CilanGeorgia
(デンラン DenLan)

Evidence

Georgia calls for Cilan's attention before she leaves and demands that he make her a delicious meal the next time they met.
When Burgundy begins to mock Cilan after his loss to Luke, Georgia is clearly annoyed by her behavior. She then remarks sarcastically to Burgundy that she's "about as nice as they come". Fans see this as Georgia's way of defending Cilan.
Again, Georgia looks annoyed when Burgundy keeps bashing on Cilan after he had lost to Stephan in the Clubsplosion. She then replies to her rantings with "What did he ever do to you?".
Georgia holds her own Connoisseur contest similar to the one Cilan and Burgundy had in Club Battle Finale: A Heroes Outcome! and declares Cilan the winner of it during Montgomery and Stephan's battle.


List of Pokémon shippings

This is a list involving a Pokémon.

IwazaruShipping

CilanPansage
(デンヤナ DenYana)

Evidence

  • Cilan refers to Pansage as his "premium brand" Pokémon which means that he is his most trusted partner.
Cilan begins to gloat how perfectly compatible he is with Pansage while battling Ash and his Oshawott.
Pansage tries to comfort Cilan after he inadvertently knocked over the pot of soup he was making for lunch caused by Ash and Iris's goofing off.
Cilan is seen holding Pansage after he is poisoned by group of wild Foongus. He does not do the same for his Dwebble who is also poisoned.

Name origins


ElectrocuteShipping

KyoudaiShipping

Iris's AxewAsh's Scraggy
(キバズル KibaZuru)

Evidence

  • Due to their experience levels, the two are often sparring partners with one another. However, Axew is considerably more experienced than Scraggy is.
Even before Scraggy's hatching, Axew took interest in his egg and liked to watch out for it. Later when Scraggy runs off in the middle of the night, Axew is the first to notice and alerts everyone.
Axew and Scraggy are shown to have a strong and friendly relationship in this episode. After their sparring match they are seen playing and splashing each other with water. Later when a Gothita takes a liking to Scraggy, Axew becomes almost jealous of it. He then becomes upset when Gothita's Trainer says that if she defeats Ash in battle that she will take Scraggy for herself. So much so that he has a nightmare about it later in the night. Once again, he's one of the first to notice Scraggy's absent but this time goes off by himself to try and stop Gothita.
Axew was pained to see Scraggy being mercilessly kicked by Angus's Simisage during the Clubsplosion tournament to the point where he had to put his hands over his eyes. However, he was very proud that Scraggy learned Focus Blast shortly after.
Scraggy was the first to notice that Axew was missing after it was taken by a couple of Durant. Aside from Iris, he was clearly the most upset about Axew being missing. After they had found Axew, Scraggy gave him a light scolding for worrying him so much.

Similarities

Name origins

  • Kyoudai comes from 兄弟 siblings referring to their kin-like relationship.


LethalAttractionShipping

Ash's OshawottIris's Emolga
(ミジュエモ MijuEmo)

Oshawott's hints

Oshawott is immediately smitten with Emolga upon first seeing her. Also, Oshawott interrupts her battle with Bianca's Minccino by jumping in front of the Attract meant for the other Pokémon.
Later on when Emolga is surrounded by a group of wild Swoobat, Oshawott lets himself out of his Poké Ball in order to protect her. He was hit by a Swoobat's Charge Beam forcing Ash to recall him to his Poké Ball.
When Emolga wanders off on her own while the others are sleeping, Oshawott and Axew follow after her. When they find her she lies to them in order to get some apples by telling them that she was ambushed by a group of wild Watchog. Angered, Oshawott fights valiantly in order to protect her and retrieves an apple for himself, Emolga, and Axew. Oshawott continues to protect Emolga even standing up to an enraged Simisear. However, he was easily defeated by the angry Pokémon.
At the Pokémon center, Oshawott continued to flirt with Emolga, much to her dicomfort.

Emolga's hints

When Emolga discovered Oshawott fawning over Meloetta, her reaction seemed uneasy. When flying down to them, she crashed into Oshawott and the two squabbled very imaturly.
When Oshawott met Dawn's Buneary and welcomed her with wide spread arms, Emolga's mouth was wide open, seeming suprised.

Name origins

  • LethalAttraction comes from the fact that Oshawott usually ends up getting hurt while trying to protect Emolga. It also could be from the fact that Water-types are weak against Electric attacks.

Trivia

  • Oshawott and Emolga are both part of the Field egg group and therefore can breed.


LightningPearlShipping

Ash's PikachuDawn's Piplup
(ピカポッチャ PikaPocha)

Evidence

Pikachu and Piplup spent nearly the whole episode hugging each other with hearts in their eyes. Even when Dawn returns Piplup to his Poké Ball, he lets himself out and goes back to hugging Pikachu. Of course, this was all a result of Professor Kodama's affinity machine which made pure Electric and Water-types inseparable.
Piplup becomes emotional knowing that the group is going to go their separate ways. He was hoping that Dawn would go with Ash and Brock to Kanto so that he could stay with Pikachu. When she decides she's going to stay in Sinnoh, Piplup runs off into the forest alone. Fans also note that even though Pikachu is Buneary's object of affection, she did not appear upset at all over the news of Pikachu leaving unlike Piplup. Pikachu becomes concerned and runs off too to look for him. When he finds Piplup, he latches on to him and starts crying. This causes Pikachu to also start crying.
Later on when they accept that they are going to separate, Pikachu and Piplup high five each other before hugging again.

Similarities

  • Both were unwilling to obey their Trainers at first, but became friends after saving them from a group of attacking Pokémon. Pikachu saved Ash from a flock of Spearow, while Piplup saved Dawn from a swarm of Ariados.
  • Both are actively kept outside of their Poké Balls.
  • Both have expressed reluctance to evolve and prefer to remain in their current forms.
    • Both have battled against their evolved forms.

Name origins


TaladradoraShipping

ExcadrillIris
(ドリュアイ DoryuAi)

Evidence

Excadrill shows some reaction to Iris's crying after his loss to Georgia's Beartic earlier. As such, he left the to the forest in order to work on Focus Blast and become stronger. Later, he agrees to rematch Beartic and listen to Iris's commands after regaining his confidence. After the second battle with Beartic, Iris hugs Excadrill and tells him that she loves him.

Name origins

  • Taladradora is the Spanish word for drill.


TwinApplesShipping

AxewIris
(キバアイ KibaAi)

Evidence

  • Axew is never seen in a Poké Ball unlike Iris's other Pokémon an prefers to travel inside her hair showing a close bond. Axew also tends to impersonate some of her actions, such as backing her up when she refers to Ash as a kid.
  • The Bloom Is on Axew!
When Iris becomes upset that she can't help Axew perfect Dragon Rage, he goes off and finds an apple for her to help her feel better. Later when Excadrill refuses to help Iris rescue Axew from a wild Scolipede, she takes it upon herself to save him without the aid of a Pokémon.
