AntiRocketShippers

Do AntiRocketShippers count? They aren't even RocketShippers! Why not add "AntiPokéShippers" to the types of PokéShippers? Ketsuban

It's worth noting their major arguments against the pairing. Argy

Question on that -- Then why isn't there a section for "AntiPokéShippers" in the PokéShippers page?? Seems a little bias to me. I am thinking the Sects of RocketShipping needs to be rewritten. Instead of there being a section for "AntiRocketShippers" under the categories of RocketShipping (which makes no sense to me), there should just be a paragraph noting the major arguments against the pairing. --Puff 17:21, 12 July 2007 (UTC)

Hints

Does anyone know a page we can link to that lists hints for RocketShipping? I want to link to Pokemopolis' anti-RocketShipping page, but it would be unfair to have that as the only external link. FabuVinny 14:01, 25 October 2005 (CDT)

Done and done. Musashi

R*cketshippers

Just curious, in reference to the last edit made on (15:15, 25 March 2007) by FrozenPandaMan - Why has the term "R*cketshippers" been changed to "Rocketshippers". :/ I'm not exactly active on creating shipping names, I just follow them - So before I make an edit I just want to know what the current shipping term should be for the 'old school shippers'. --Puff 16:22, 5 April 2007 (UTC)

Offensiveness

Whilst I agree with freedom and speech and the right to state what you believe, I think that this comment under RocketShippers: "Lives for any sort of event that can be considered a hint, no matter how small. The infamous manga is their bible." and a few others is a little too much. :/ Stating facts against the shipping is fine and all, but that just seems a bit too harsh to me and could be potentially insulting. (As I'm new here, I didn't want to edit anything before discussing it first.) Your thoughts? --Rachie 16:35, 22 August 2007 (UTC)

I very much agree -- I think that this entire article should be looked at and revised.. What gets me is that there is an AntiRocketShipper section, and yet there is nothing like that in some of the other shipping pages -- PokéShipping is a main example. --Puff 04:28, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

A strange feeling

I have a strange feeling that James might not be HEterosexual He thinks ♂♂ and not ♂♀ - unsigned comment from Formerpokéfan (talkcontribs)

Sign your posts, and just because you have a feeling DOES NOT mean that it's true. Until stated within the anime, it's Fanon (Fan-made). Even if I personally think James may be Bi. Takoto タコト| サソデイ = 愛 00:04, 26 August 2008 (UTC)


oh and btw, crossdressing isnt gay only 5% of crossdressers are gay (Not includding transvestites) - unsigned comment from Formerpokéfan (talkcontribs)

On the other hand, crossdressers are transvestites. Θρtιmαtum♏Talk|Links10:51 27 Aug 2008
Most tranvestites are straight. Eddie Izzard (well-known British crossdressing comedian) compares it to being a "male lesbian." ~ShinyAeon, Aug 20, 2009, 5:10 AM CST

Overhaul

I did an overhaul of the page to make it less biased. Feel free to edit as you see fit, but please don't make it that biased and rude again. D: CherryParanoia 05:50, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

Removing the sects is one thing, but can we leave the rest of the page as it was? I don't think this current version gives as much information as the previous one. Bulbagarden Rocketshippers worked very hard on giving the page the revamp it desperately needed back in May, so I think the history section should be restored to what it was. Rocket Girl 07:10, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

I'm all for keeping the sects, too. They're defunct now, but they're still a significant part of the ship's history. Either way, I think the page should be changed back to how it was before this "overhaul". The Bulbagarden Rocketshippers worked hard to make it presentable and informative, and it was just fine the way it was because of their extensive revamp. --Demon of Light 07:33, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

I'm with Demon of Light. Unlike the other ships, Rocketshippings' sects are a HUGE and notable part of its history. And from what I've read, I know you think you're doing the page a big favour (maybe you read old comments saying that the page was rubbish .etc.) but like Rocket Girl said, the Bulbagarden Rocketshippers put a lot of thought into it and gave the page a massive overhaul in May. What you've done is like taking a step backwards rather than forwards and it's now less informative than before. --ii kanji 10:23, 20 August 2009

I'm also for keeping the sects in - there are so many older websites and fanfic comments out there that mention them, new fans that run into the terms need an overview! And - biased? Shipping is a bias in and of itself. I really don't understand what you mean, CherryParanoia. And needless to say, if you're going to make accusations of rudeness, you should be specific about what exactly you believe was "rude." I vote we restore the page as it was, and then reexamine it - if there's some specific wording you object to, then a little precise surgery will suffice better than this mass amputation. ~ShinyAeon, Aug 20, 2009, 4:56 AM CST

A hint

In some episode, I cant really remember which, I think it was early AG, James says something like "but Jessie darling..." I would add this but, as I cant remember the episode... --Juzey!! (Talk) 17:49, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

That was only in the dub so it doesn't count. Rocket Girl 20:50, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

Kate

The link for Kate in Jessie's Hints links to a disambiguation page, and I have no idea which one it is. Where should the link lead? AGGRON989 00:26, 16 April 2013 (UTC)

Spanish dub hints

I noticed there are numerous hints in the article which refer to "the Spanish dub". Are they from the Latin American or European Spanish dub? I think this should be clarified in the article for factual accuracy as these regions have different translations of the anime. (Also, should they be grouped separately?) --ZestyCactus 05:38, 31 December 2013 (UTC)

The reason I think they shouldn't be in a separate section is because the Latin American Spanish dub is based on the English dub, so much of the dialogue (even things you might not expect, like idioms and word play) is identical. I think it'd be more sensible to just contrast the differences instead of writing out the Spanish versions of shippy dialogue that I've already talked about in the English section. On the other hand, one of the reasons one could argue for a separate section is that in the Latin American dub, Jessie and James are either canon or very, very close to canon (I've added a part where Jessie says to James "You love me so much, aww," and I'm going to add a part where James refers to Jessie as his "girlfriend."); which is obviously in stark contrast to the ambiguity in the the English and Japanese versions.

Section Headings

Now that there's a manga section, shouldn't the "Non anime evidence" section just be "Other evidence"? TR Jessie (talk) 23:38, 8 February 2014 (UTC)TR Jessie

Good plan, I switched it. On the record, I made "Manga evidence" its own heading so that future hints from Ash and Pikachu can be added if they are discovered (also anything from the movie manga adaptations, especially Mewtwo Strikes Back! since it was also created by Toshihiro Ono, so anyone who has actually read the manga might be able to determine if there are any shippy scenes in that one, considering it's by the same creator of the manga where they got married :P) --ZestyCactus 23:46, 8 February 2014 (UTC)
