JealousyShipping (Japanese: ピカチコ PikaChic)is the name given to theories of a romantic relationship between Ash's Pikachu and his Chikorita. It is considered a rival of KrazyShipping and LagomorphShipping. The ship's name comes from the fact that Chikorita was jealous of Pikachu because of it's crush on Ash.
Pikachu is the only one of Ash's Pokémon to come and rescue Chikorita from Team Rocket due to Ash leaving his Pokéballs at the Pokémon Center. Ash's Pikachu gets Chikorita away from Team Rocket and they run out the door together.
When Nurse Joy explains that Chikorita is jealous of the attention Ash gives Pikachu, Pikachu listens closely. Later, when Chikorita runs away from the Pokemon Center, Pikachu follows it trying to get it to come back and when Chikorita finally loses him, he looks for her. After he finds her he again tries to persuade her to come back.
