| This article is about shipping.|
As hints and evidence for ships are mostly speculation, this page may contain personal points of view.
PikarisuShipping is the belief that Ash's Pikachu and Dawn's Pachirisu are or are destined to be in a romantic relationship. The name is derived from Pikachu and Pachirisu's English names. It is considered a rival of LagomorphShipping and can be considered evidence of PearlShipping, similar to how LagamorphShipping is sometimes thought of.
- Whenever Pikachu is sent out to use electric type moves, for a purpose other than battling, such as in Leading a Stray or Regaining the Home Advantage, Dawn sends out Pachirisu to help.
- Buneary and Pachirisu are, apparently, good friends, even making an "Ice Chandelier." This could mean that they would compete for Pikachu's affection.
- Pikachu and Pachirisu share many similarities:
- They are both the only electric type Pokémon to be owned by main characters.
- They are both based off of rodents.
- They are often sent out of their Poké Balls to work together on things involving electricity.
- Coincidentally, these two Pokémon appear in the WFC conection screen
- They are both in the field egg group and can breed.
- They are also both in the fairy egg group.
