A start.
'''Shipping''' (short for "relationshipping"; '''カップリング''' ''Coupling'' in Japanese) is the belief that two characters are in a romantic relationship, or may have romantic feelings that could potentially lead to a relationship. The term "shipping" originated in the ''X-Files'' fan community. The term has since spread into multiple franchises and series, including Pokémon. A pairing is usually given a nickname that always has the suffix "-shipping", with the prefix being a word that best describes the pairing.

Shipping in the Pokémon fandom began in the late 90s, with Pokémon forums hosting there own shipping sections for fans to discuss their favorite ships. Two of the most popular ships at the time were ''PokéShipping'', the pairing of {{Ash}} and {{an|Misty}}, and ''RocketShipping'', the pairing of {{an|Jessie}} and {{an|James}}. Other Pokémon sites would also have section dedicated to shipping, have lists of hints and evidence of a romantic relationships that were mostly speculation.
