LeagueShipping (Richie+Ash), clearly the most logical

Ok ok ok. Most people would agree that Misty likes Ash, but Ash is clearly a homosexual. He likes the fellas. I believe that Ash originally had it hot for Gary, but as we know, Gary would have none of that. In the beginning, Ash was too weak for him. And besides I’m not convinced Gary is gay. Anyway, Ash really fell out of love with Gary when he saw him loose in the indigo league. This is when Richie enters the picture—coincidence, I think NOT. Ash fell in love with him immediately.

Ash and Richie spent a beautiful night under the stars together. I remember a scene in which they were tracing an Onix Constellation in the sky (let us do a Freudian analysis of that!!!) Ah, but as we know, one cannot become a Pokemon master by settling down; thus, Richie and Ash had to part in a typical sunset scene.

Now let the hate replies from the Richie-bashers, Pokeshippers, and Advancedshippers commence.

PS

What is up with indigoshipping anyway. Richie and Misty. I don’t think so.

Richie and Ash should be indigoshipping, but I will use the accepted terminology FOR NOW.

Of course, Gary later obviously had a thing for Ash, in the Silver Conference, and Ash was just all: "WTF?"

And we can't forget Ash's thing for Sammy.

But he can't be gay, he was all sparkly for Giselle. It's my theory that he's bisexual, like everyone else on the show.

(That's right, I ain't Blackjack. I'm Ketsuban, using her name since her computer WON'T LET ME LOG HER OUT. Argh.)

:0 Oh my god I think my head just exploded into many tiny pieces. Leagueshipping is my Satoshi OTP, and I honestly see it a lot more than Palletshipping, as Shigeru is just too mature, intelligent and arrogant for Satoshi.

I honestly think Satoshi is far from just heterosexual (he seems more aesexual than anything). He doesn't seem to have much interest in girls (aside from Gizelle O.o; ) but is seriously all over boys. I don't think that makes him gay, exactly, but it's stupid to deny that he's more clingy toward males than females.

But...NEE leagueshipping. x_x it's my favorite satoshiship~ ever.

And here it is, the first annoying post of a fanatic Pokeshipper butting in. I'll try to stay reasonable though.

Untill so fare, you made a good point. But let us consider certain things in the way of this romance:
-The dubbing mob: They once banned an episode because they enlarged James breasts with Pokeballs. So even if Ash and Richie get together, there's no way the dubbers will ever air the episode in which this happens.

-The American Government: Last spotted when chasing Spongebob Squarepants, because he promoted homoseksuality. How will they react when another cartoon star has his coming out?

-Even if Ash fell in love with Richie, that doesn't automattically mean he's a homoseksual. Confused? www.pokemopolis.net/topten/girlyrichie.txt
I think you'll like the first reason.

(Note, that I myself do not have a problem with homoseksuality. Where I live, it is regarged just as normal as heteroseksuality, and I think it should be all over the world.)

Oh, and finally:


let us do a Freudian analysis of that!!!

Let's not. Freud's theories are fossils, not only proven to be wrong, but designed to cover up the fact the're wrong. Like Popper said, there's now way to falsify them, which makes it worthless as a scientific theory. However, if you can do a cognitive analyses, you'd have my attention.

Point duly noted. Freudian Psychoanalysis is a thing of the past, but Freudian Interpretation (i.e. Criticism/Analysis of Literature/Film/Art/Etc) is still alive and thriving. It’s still a popular method of interpretation in scholarly journals. I just read a new article on Henry James’s Turn of the Screw that used that method. Plus it’s just pain fun to look for phallic symbols. You have to admit without Freud’s pioneering—as crazy as some of his ideas were—there would most likely be no Cognitive Theories. I myself like Humanist Theories. Abraham Maslow is a major hottie.

Anyway, you have yet to convince me that Ash and Richie don’t belong with each other. So they have some obstacles. If you don’t mind, I still think the last episode of Pokemon will be Ash and Richie moving to Vermont and adopting a bunch of kids. ::said in a tone that connotes drollness::

PS

If you are as sympathetic to homosexuality as you say (which I honestly do believe), I would avoid using the phrase “confused.” That term can be seen as rather offensive.

Anyways, Thanks for the post.

PokeProphet
23rd February 2005, 3:51 PM
Indeed, it is sometimes funny to look for things that can be interpreted in a naughty Freudian way. And I'm a humanist myself. I study at Erasmus University, named after one of the first humanists. Maslow's OK, but I'm more of an education adept, so I go for Vygotsky.

And well, I need some convincing too, to your direction that is. Ash and Ritchie do seem quite close during the Indigo league, but don't forget that at that point they're eleven year olds. A time when most kids prefer being with and talking to same sex peers. In fact, this separation from the other sex may be exactly what makes them hetero, according to the Exotic Becomes Erotic (ERE) theory, which states that when hormones begin to rage, people will get interested in the sex that is Exotic or strange for them, the one they haven't got to know yet. Ash and Richie seem a lot less close during their encounter in Jotho, in which they are assumed to be four- to fifteen.

Oh, by the way, the word confused didn't mean to refer to Ash and his sexual preference. It was supposed to suggest that if anyone felt confused by what I just said, they should check out the site. Like this:

Even if Ash fell in love with Richie, that doesn't automattically mean he's a homoseksual. Are you confused by this argument? Check out www.pokemopolis.net/topten/girlyrichie.txt. I think you'll like the first reason.

articuno_trumps_all
23rd February 2005, 11:34 PM
Oh. I see. (I'm a little slow sometimes). Richie is no girl LOL. Richie's voice in PC will most likely be more manly because a male (Dan Green) will be providing the voice. As for your "they weren't as close in Jotho argument," Richie was the person Ash seemed most concerned about after he came to in that cage. Besides, they had less ALONE time like they had in the Indigo eps. Ash can't make his move with Misty around. She'd be crushed. He doesn't want to hurt her feelings because, after all, Misty is the Grace to his Will.

PokeProphet
24th February 2005, 1:39 PM
Hm, I took a second look at the episodes. They don't mention Ash looking out for Ritchie first. If he did, it could always be a random thing, since Ritchie is next to him in the cage. I don't really see him grabbing Ritchie by the shoulders and desperately asking if he's all right, like he did to a certain redheaded girl in the episode "Island of the giant Pokemon". If he had done something like that to Ritchie, there would be no denying that it's a hint.

And actually, they do have some time alone during the episodes. How about their little scuba-diving adventure. Would have been the perfect place for a little touchy-feely, with Misty gone and Ritchie in that nice tight scuba gear. So why didn't Ash seize this opportunity?

Finally, if there's any Will and Grace in Pokemon, it's Jesse and James, not Misty and Ash.

By the way, what's taking Alfonso so long to find this thread? He was a leagueshipper long before this thread was created. Do any of his sixsome buddies know what's keeping him?

articuno_trumps_all
24th February 2005, 4:35 PM
Wow, this thread has turned into the “Pokemanic/articuno_trumps_all personal conversation thread”

Well the fact of the matter remains, Ash didn't hightail it over to Misty when she was hurt. If he was in love with her, he would have wanted to be by her side while she was unconscious. Instead, he chose to remain by Richie’s side.

I actually don’t think James is gay (even though I recently posted a tread with that “flaming Moltres” clip). Wow. Alfonso is a leagueshipper. I had no idea.

More leagueshipping pics (from one of the comics)

LOL!! Here’s another phallic symbol.

Mmm...while Leagueshipping is by far my Satoshi OTP, I really think it's hard to say that "so and so in in love with so and so" in Pokemon (sans Takeshi's testosterone-charged crushes), unless it's either outright said, or hinted at with the customary blushes and obvious clues.

But, the Indigo episodes were downright SLASHY. Even subtle things, like one scene where they're looking up at the sky, and two stars twinkle simultaneously, the sunset scene, and the fireworks. It's honestly just so *sweet* how close they got in such a short time.

I do have to admit though, that the 3 Hiroshi-in-Jouto episodes were a little...Lacking. >.> but well...by the time we got to Master Quest, Jouto itself was lacking all-around (except for when Shigeru and Satoshi become friends again. ; ; so sweet.)

XD Where *is* Alfonso!? He was the first person I ever stumbled across who mentioned this ship (besides me. I've liked it ever since I read the manga about a year or two ago~)

O_o and oh my god why would they take Tara Jayne's voice away from Richie!?!?!? That's a downright Sacrelige! She does his voice wonderfully! x_x the only voice she does besides Mokuba's and Maxx's that I like~

By the way, check out the "perfect match for Ash" thread for further proof that Alfonso is a Leagueshipper.

Happy to see some other people joining in. Not that I didn't like our private conversation, I was just getting afraid that with my critisism, I drove everyone away. So, anyone else got some hints to try and convince me?

**shrugs** Honestly, I think that that close friends become the best lovers. >.> "Opposites Attract"ships totally confuse me. While being with someone just like you can be boring, Hiroshi isn't just a Satoshi-clone (although the fact that they have the same almost exact same pokemon is really...>.>;; weird and annoying, because it just perpetuates the fact that people think they are clones.)

I dunno. it seems like they'd balance eachother out well, because they have opposite tendancies, but aren't polar opposites. Nor are they simmilar in their faults.

By the way, Articuno_trumps_all, did you know you have competition? Somebody has started a thread about Snapshipping. You're not gonna let that happen, are you? I mean, Leagueshipping and Snapshipping, that's just like Pokeshipping and Advanceshipping!

As far as I’m concerned SnapShipping is very welcomed. I am first and foremost a Leaugeshipper, and I think Ash belongs with no one else but Richie, but I fully enjoy seeing other fans pairing Ash with other guys. Todd and Ash look cute together, but I think that Todd’s attraction to Ash is not mutual. Ash & Richie forever!!!!

Oh, and I would love to see SnapShipping become the AdvancedShipping to LeagueShipping.

*Spits on computer monitor, snaps fingers three times* Now it’s official!!

********

This was a post that disappeared, so I’ll repost it

My manifesto continues

I have to agree with twilightespeon. Just because Ash and Richie look similar(actually, I’ve always thought Richie looks like a combo of Ash/Gary) and have similar Pokemon, it doesn’t mean that they are clones. Ash and Richie actually have very different personalities and mannerisms. Ash is hard headed, quick tempered and boorish while Richie is collected, gentle, and polite. Ash is very rough around the edges while Richie is refined. Ash is hard-hitting while Richie is dainty. You could even say they have polar opposite dispositions. I’ve always believed that people who have similar interests, but have different personalities, make very good couples. As for their Pokemon, Richie seems to have trained them more thoughtfully. Charizard comes to mind. Richie seems to have a very good handle on his Charmilinon.

I admit there are less hints outside of the Indigo League episodes, but there are some. I also admit that some of my theories on the Johto episodes are a little stretched, but I still believe Richie has it bad for Ash and vice versa. I believe that Richie’s motivations for going to Pallet Town in Special Episode 10 were to meet up with Ash. In fact, at the end of the episode, he made his intentions clear that he would be seeking out Ash again. Granted, Richie isn’t doing a very good job at chasing Ash. He was last spotted at Mount Ember, which I imagine is very far from Hoenn. I still believe that Richie will make an appearance very soon. My guess he will show up again before, after, or during the Hoenn League. After all, he has popped up in every generation so far. Sparks will fly when they get together again :)

You mean you want to be gunned down by snapshippers every time you try to say something about your ship? To be hunted down every time you just want to have a nice conversation? Believe me, it's not as much fun as you think.

Hey Arti, can I ask you a question? In the very first post of this thread, you brought up that night Ash and Ritchie spend eacht other, you know, the one you did the Freudian analysis about.
I just couldn't help wondering about that. I mean, if they we're head over heels back by then, like you say they were, why did they spend the whole night looking at the stars and talking. They could have done a lot more, if you catch my drift. And Misty (or Grace, as you call her) was nowhere around, so Ash couldn't have hold back just not to hurt her feelings, right?

By the way, you two should start a tread about Leagueshipping/Snapshipping on the Pokemopolis forums. The people there are really big Ritchie/Snap fans.

(evil laugh: MUHAHAHAHAHA)

articuno_trumps_all
17th March 2005, 4:43 PM
Well, after all, pokemon is primarily considered a children’s show—they can’t show everything that “actually” happened. I think that scene implies that those two did a lot more later on. I like to see that scene as pillow talk after they had some fun. The major point that the scene brings up is that Ash and Richie shared a romantic moment that rivals any moment that Ash/Misty, Ash/May, Ash/Todd, ect have ever had. Read between the lines, lol!!

Haha, I'm sure Pokemopolis fans would love a League/Snap thread

of course there would have to be something on screen to indicate that. I’d admit it’s only conjecture, but there are still more hints for leagueshipping in the first Richie episode than the entire first season for pokeshipping.

My hands are itchy to respond. Yet, I'm not going to. It would probably just lead to another one of those endless debates between two people who really don't want to be convinded.

YESYESYESYESYESYES!!!!!!!!

I just has to join Serebii Forums so I could respond to this thread, for reasons threefold.

First, articuno_trumps_all, I am almost sure we used to be pals on Bulbagarden Forums. It’s Jen!!! You have a different s/n, but I can tell it is you. Your favorite Pokemon is articuno, you are a rabid Richie fan, and you got the same GREAT hints that I’ve missed since you were banned. By the way, that jack*** that you chewed out is still spewing his bigotry. I like you comment about him needing to place a ;211; in a certain body part. I think the only reason you got banned was because he was a friend of one of the mods. He should have been kicked out, not you. You just said what no one else had the guts to say. You rock!! Anyway, I haven’t been kicked off yet; isn’t that amusing!!! Well if you’re not who I think you are, then is will be embarsing, but what the heck.

That brings me to my second reason why I need to join Serebii. I’m positive I’ll be kicked out of BG anytime now. Remember all the warnings I used to get.

Third, LeagueShipping is simply the greatest Ash ship ever. I used to be a pokeshipper, thinking I had it all figured out, but I have seen the light. A_T_A, you always used have the best Ash hints and you still do.I’ve always felt sorry for Misty, chasing after a closet case and all. Oh, I love how you said Misty is the Grace to Ash’s Will. I’ve got another. James is the Jack to Jessie’s Karen.

Anyway, I think that Ash and Ritchie are head over heels in love. Better yet heels over head, hahahahahaha. As for this Pokemaniac’s assignment, I think that Ash/Ritchie’s reunion would go like this:

Ash is at the Hoenn League. Misty comes to support him. He’s really happy to see her until Ritchie shows up. Then he pushes her out of the way and is all like “Misty who?” The two of them go off and check out the stars on Ritchie’s pokeBALLS.

Well A_T_A, let me know if you are the person I think you are.

That brings me to my second reason why I need to join Serebii. I’m positive I’ll be kicked out of BG anytime now. Remember all the warnings I used to get.

Third, LeagueShipping is simply the greatest Ash ship ever. I used to be a pokeshipper, thinking I had it all figured out, but I have seen the light. A_T_A, you always used have the best Ash hints and you still do.I’ve always felt sorry for Misty, chasing after a closet case and all. Oh, I love how you said Misty is the Grace to Ash’s Will. I’ve got another. James is the Jack to Jessie’s Karen.

Anyway, I think that Ash and Ritchie are head over heels in love. Better yet heels over head, hahahahahaha. As for this Pokemaniac’s assignment, I think that Ash/Ritchie’s reunion would go like this:

Ash is at the Hoenn League. Misty comes to support him. He’s really happy to see her until Ritchie shows up. Then he pushes her out of the way and is all like “Misty who?” The two of them go off and check out the stars on Ritchie’s pokeBALLS.

Well A_T_A, let me know if you are the person I think you are.

JEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes it is me. It is so good to hear from you!! BG is full of corrupt moderators. I see that you are into Brawly now. I know a few people who might be ****** with your whole MeShipping thing. Knowing you, you’re already working on being banned for the first time here.

I’ve added a poll. (hahahaha...poll)

Who is the man in Richie and Ash’s relationship?

Richie, Ash, or “The Switch” (those of you not down with GLB lingo, they change roles every other time)

I choose Richie. I know this might not be the obvious choice, but I have my reasons. Closet-cases like Ash tend to be the less submissive people. Also, the more reserved and calm people act outside of the bedroom, the more wild they tend to get inside. I think Richie is probably a dominatrix, though I think Brawlysgirl has me confused with someone else when it comes to fan art. I’m no artist—that was another leagueshipper on BG way back when.



Here is how Richie and Ash’s reunion might go:

Richie just shows up when Ash is traveling with Brock, May, and Max. He’s got his whips and chains with him and is like “Someone’s been a bad, bad boy while I was away.”

Ash and Richie leave the rest of the group and have some fun in the woods. Then they move to Vermont and adopt a bunch of kids (that’s how the series will end, haha).

They'd definitely switch. Not just because, y'know, that's the way most gay couples are anyway; I just can't see either of them being totally seme or uke, anyway.

By the way, Arti and Ketsuban, our thread on Pokemopolis isn't really working out, is it? Yesterday, I posted something on it that will probably get me banned. I did it because the webmaster there edited my post because I annoyed him, but did nothing about a guy who told me to go and shoot myself.

This is in response to pokeprophet’s assignment. It is also an excerpt from my Ship fic.

The first two chapters are available.

http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=59113

With his hand caressing the small of Richie’s back, Ash led him out of the Trainer Tower. The sun was setting in the distance. “Oh isn’t it beautiful Ash? It reminds me of the first time I had to say goodbye to you. Do you remember?”
“I would never forget that night Richie.” The two of them walked down to the beach and sat on some rocks by the water. Ash wrapped his arms around Richie’s waist and rested his chin on his shoulder. “You’re my best friend Richie. I…I, love, you.”
Richie stood up and looked Ash in the eyes. “You love me?”
“I…I—
Richie hushed Ash by placing a finger on his lips. “Shhhhh.” He caressed Ash’s cheek. “I’ve waited years for you to tell me that. I love you too.”
Ash grabbed Richie’s hand. “We can finally be together. You can travel with us. We’ll be so happy.”
Richie smiled slightly. “Nothing would make me happier, but I just can’t date a closet case. If you and I have a shot at being together, you have to come out.”
“That’s no problem. We’ll tell Brock, May, and Max right now.”
“There’s someone else you need to tell. I think you know who it is.”
“Misty?”
“Yes. She’s in love with you. I care about her and I don’t want her think that she still has a chance with you. You have to tell or we just can’t be together.”

AND starting to like Ritchie more. Although, that was more because I rewatched the Johto episodes a while back, and was starting to warm to his character and such. 'Course, his Pokemon nicknames SUCK. Happy? Cruise? Gah. The only one that's decent is 'Zippo', and that's only because it's the name of a lighter and was it's original Japanese name. >.>

I even drew up a little chart... Ash likes Ritchie, and Ritchie likes Ash. However, Gary also likes Ash, but also likes Ritchie, because he reminds him of Ash. Ash kinda still has a crush on Gary, while Ritchie just thinks he's a jerk. Then there's Tracey, who likes all of them, including DJ Mary! @.@

About time you showed up Alfonso.

How else would you explain Pokeprophet hanging around in this thread so much when she is a die-hard Pokeshipper XD. I'm also glad to see you're starting to warm up to Richie. I think he’s gotten a bad rap. I don’t really like most of his nicknames either, but I tend to blame the dubbing on that. Zippo is the best one!

I can really see your point. There were some special moments with Ash and Gary during Johto, just as Richie had some special moments without Ash. Haha, I made a collage (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v737/articuno_trumps_all/sideguys.jpg) of all of Richie’s “guys on the side”. Even though he’s been close with a few other guys, Ash is still his major b****.

For those of you who may still doubt Richie’s sexuality, I must refer you to special episode #14 in which Celebi!, a pokemon strongly resemboling a FAIRY, helps Richie play MATCHMAKER for two long lost lovers.
Yay, post #69.


Now, last time I checked, Richie was in Hoeun, right?

Actually, Richie was last seen at Mount Ember—I have no idea how far One Island is to Hoenn—but I am pretty sure that was only a stop on his way to hunting down Ash in Hoenn.

Thanks for reviving this thread. Hmmm, I have to take strong objection with the Pokemon 2000 reference. Ash so DOES NOT look happy about that kiss from Melody.

Saying that Ash is bisexual (yay, you've stopped replacing the x with k), isn't saying a lot. I still think he's like 99.9% gay, 00.1% heterosexual. HEHE. Still, I think Ash has absolutely no interest in May, Misty, or Melody. If he ever ended up with a female, I would have to say it would be Latias. But of course, Ash is totally still into Richie.

WIN. Alfonso has joined in our leagues (pun definately intended). And Masamune annoys me o_o; He had better have a good personality, or he'll just be unattractive *and* obnoxious.

Arrrgh, Hiroshi NEEDS to pop up again, although with the weird turn the show has been taking lately (although it's a LOT less lackluster then Jouto was, albeit a bit drawn out), I dunno if it'd be a whole, "ZOMIGOD I MISSED YOU" reunion. ;0; I'd hope, but if it's not...eh.

Hmm. I honestly don't see either of them as seme or uke exclusively, although Satoshi strikes me as very protective and a lot more masculine than Hiroshi. XD I honestly haven't looked too far into their sexlives, but beh, I like Satoshi on "top" as a personal preference.


And on the nicknames, in Japanese I think his Butterfree is "Poppy" (which would make sense as to why his new swellow is "Rose") and his Pikachu is "Leon". X3 although, in the Ono manga, I think is Pikachuu's name was Chuchino, which is the name I use in my fannon.

Nice to see you again on this thread Twilight. Yes, he so DOES!!! I still am convinced that Richie has been secretly collecting Hoenn league badges. I would so love to see him at the Hoenn League. Not only do they need a rematch, Richie needs to sex up Ash again. I'm so dirty. Sorry.

I’ve always liked the Japanese nicknames a whole lot better. I wonder what Rose’s English name is going to be. I certainly hope they change it. Hell, I’ll just be happy to see Richie again. I certainly hope there is no validity to that whole Dan Green being Richie thing.

No, seks. You forgot the s. It's spelled seks, and pronounced just like you pronounce sex. And homosexuality is homoseksualiteit. It would be so funny if I could see you trying to pronounce that now.


Ash on top?....but I can see where you are coming from.
Obviously. From the top. But is he coming or ***....LOL.


I wonder what Rose’s English name is going to be.
He has a pokemon named Rose? Well, that takes away every doubt about Ritchie's preference. It that didn't happen somewere already.


YAY, another leagueshipping fic at Serebii. Have you seen mine. It can be found in my sig . I really like yours XD
Want to see the fanfics my ship has produced? I'll PM them to you, in convenient packages of a hundred each. LOL

Topic time:
Are there two other fictional characters you can compare to Ash and Ritchie?

To me, that would be Sam and Frodo from LOTR. Ash as Frodo, the persistent man on a quest. And Sam as his calm and gentle biatch.

I don’t know who would be the man in the relationship, but I voted for Richie to be ironic.

Articuno, you present some interesting points. I love that there are some GAY threads here. Didn’t you post one in PC. HEHE, I moved here to see if there posters are more open to homosexuality here.

Like I said, I can appreciate your hints, but I think palletshipping is better, well not better but more likely. Well……..I’m really not sure. HEY, is there a threesome ship with them. I could support Ash&Richie&Gary. Is there a name for that ship?

HEHE, PoleProphet, I think Ash and Richie could be Frodo and Sam. Maybe Gary could be the Goullem (??) in their relationship!!!!

Wow. I can really see it. Frodo=Richie, Sam=Ash, though you MIGHT see things differently. If anyone has read the book The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini, I think that Amir and Hassan are similar to Richie and Ash, though I don’t think either of those characters is gay. Poor Hassan. I just think their relationship dynamics are similar.

Nice to meet you Flygonboy69 and thank you. Though there are some homophobs around here, I think this places is pretty open to homosexuality.

According to Shego, Richie+Ash+Gary=Partnershipping. If you like three-ways, you should visit my threeway Shipping thread.

3shishipping is my opt then, but I can still post in here right. I mean, is ALMOST the same ship. I would post in the palletshipping thread, but that Brewlysgirl seems nasty. I think my opt is more evident in the manga than in the anime. I mean have Gary and Richie even met in the anime. Gary got his butt kicked by Richie in the manga.

Anyway, I think both Gary and Richie will show up before the hoenn league. There needs to be some major sexual tension between the three of them.

Hey, don't worry. I'm a Pokeshipper myself. I just love to hang out here with Arti & co. As long as you don't start bashing around other ships, your welcome here. Right Arti?

I just thought of another one, a really good one if you ask me. Ash as Achilles, and Ritchie as Patroklos. Ash as the half-god warrior why defies the gods, and Ritchie as his faithfull lover. Seems like a good comparison.
In case one of you reading this has seen the movie 'Troy' and wants to start telling me that Achilles is not gay and was in it for a beautiful High-Priestess, save yourself the trouble. Troy, although a good movie, is just another fine example of how Hollywood will screw historical facts up just to sell more tickets. (Pearl Harbor, anyone?) Achilles didn't fight Troy for some chick, he fought it to revenge his lover. His male lover. Who certainly wasn't his cousin, as the movie suggests.
(By the way Arti, you should take the time to read Symposion, one of the books of Plato's Dialogues. It's about a big party with about twenty (homosexual) men, and just goes on about how gay men are so much stronger, wiser and braver then heterosexual.)

Oh my goodness you are SOOO right. Though I've never seen Troy, I've read
the Iliad and you are soo right. Achilles would not even start fighting again until Patroklos was killed. Oh and I've read Plato's Dialogues. The said passage is my favorite.

Yes, you should. Great part about a poet who describes the origin of the three sexual preferences. He says that in the beginning, there were three, not two, genders on earth. Those who were whole female (the children of the Moon), those who were half female and half male (the children of the Earth) and those who were whole male (the children of the sun). These three genders were all much stronger than us, but they were too strong. They defied the Gods, which caused Zeus to become angry with them. In his rage, he threw a lightning bolt to them, which split all the beings in half. And that now causes each human being to constantly search for his counterpart, so that he or she can be whole again. The whole females have become the lesbians, the half female half male the straights, and the whole males the gay men. Naturally, the last kind is the strongest, bravest and smartest one, since it was originally whole male and males are considered superior.

That's what I remember, although my mind is a bit clouded on this one. Correct me if I'm wrong on any point, will you Arti?
By the way, symposium is not my favorite one. I think 'Apology', the defence of Socrates, is better. It taught me that no Christian can say I don't believe in god as a non-Christian, and it has fantastic quotes like "Dear people, please excuse me for being right" and "Fearing death is nothing more than fearing ones one ignorance". Hooray for Socrates.

Good summary PokeProphet. I think Ash and Richie are children of the earth XD. I wonder if that is where Coleridge gets his “androgynous mind theory” (i.e. the most well adjusted, most intellectual people are half man/woman in the brain). Yay, someone finally moralizing my lifestyle! And a very dedicated Christian I might add. Well, all those Romantics were iffy. I mean Coleridge wanted to start a British settlement in American in which men and women shared equal responsibilities and rights. SCANDALOUS!!! XD (sarcasm, of course).

And a very dedicated Christian I might add.
I don't consider myself a part of any main stream religion. I take what is best from all of them. If anything, I consider myself a Buddhist. But the beauty is, even though I can say I'm not a Christian, Christians can not say I'm not a Christian. I might explain you someday, it's a long story.

Yes, yes in deedie we are. He and Robert Southey were going to do that. Their communist settlement was going to be for married couples only. Haha, Coleridge probably came up with the idea after a long night of opium usage. Haha, in the prologue of “Khubla Khan,” he was like “I only had two grams of opium, for medicinal reasons, before I wrote it.” Haha, only two. YEAH RIGHT COLERIDGE, more like 2,000.


If you would relate Ash and Ritchie to two movie characters, which two characters would they be?

Movies. Hmmmmm. Who would be Ash and Richie?

Have you seen the movie Party Monster?

I would say Michael Alig (Macaulay Culkin)=Ash, DJ Keoki (Wilmer Valderrama)=Richie. Haha, for you Flygonboy69, James St. James (Seth Green)=Gary, and for you PokeProphet Christina (Marilyn Manson)=Misty.

Despite all the murder and drugs, and in the case of Misty’s character, cross-dressing (sorry PopeProphet), that is how I envision them.

But Party Monster. That is something I know all about!!! Isn't that movie a little mature of a 16 year-old.

No, no, no. Articuno, Misty is not the drag-queen; Christina is more May.

Misty is Gitsie ( Chloë Sevigny), the girl Michael/Ash started dating when Keoki/Richie, the love of his life, left him after all the drug crap. And then after he accidentilly killed their cat.

James St. James works well for Gary because he is Michael’s/Ash's rivial, but there is some sort of love intrest as well.

Michael's mother is obviously Ash’s mother. The Sunday School Teacher is OBVIOUSLY Professor Oak.

Peter Gatien (Dylan McDermott) is Giovanni. Talk Show Host (John Stamos) can be Brock, just because. Brooke and Freez can be Jessie and James. But that leaves Angel. Hmmm, who would Ash kill. Maybe Max. Oh, and Klara the Carefree Chicken can be piakacu.

Why in the world would you copy PokeProphet's post word for word. What a way to spam the hell out of the thread. You're contributing nothing. Articuno, I wouldn’t even bother. These pokeshippers will just try to scrutinize your every words. It just stems from their jealousy that they don’t have a decent hint.

Arti's LeagueShipping Hint List

1. Before Ash met Richie, Gary has been seen as the primary homosexual love interest for Ash. After Ash beat Gary—thus loosing face in front of ash—, he meets Richie, his new love—coincidence!

2. Richie seems pretty damn adamant to get into Ash and co’s elevator. Are we supposed to believe he didn’t have a hidden agenda to get up close to and meet that piece of ***.

3. I have a theory that starter Pokemon are extensions to the trainer’s genital, and Richie seems to rubbing Pikachu the right way (ok, don’t start Pokeprophet LOL).

4. We all know Ash is a BIG mama’s boy, and she seems to greatly approve of Richie. And I quote “Cutie.”

5. When Ash and Richie meet up the next day, you can totally see that they are into each outer. All the coy glances from both parties.

6. Richie saves Ash’s life, though Ash is not happy about it, but she immediately forgives him because it is Richie, after all. But look very closely where Richie places his hands when he saves Ash. Touchy feely.

7. Decide to give up chasing after TR, so they “set up camp.” I bet many a tent was pitched.

8. The pillow talk, oh the pillow talk.

9. The onix in the sky. Now why would they project an onix in the sky.

10. They fight for dominance in their relationship by trying to outdo each with their dreams for the future. I believe Richie wins, thus becomes the man, because he will be the universe’s greatest Pokemon master.

11. A night under the stars together after a fire lit meal; how romantic.

12. Ash seems very upset that he will be battling his new love Richie in the 5th round.

13. Ash and Richie have similar taste in Pokemon, as well as similar interests and dreams, but they have different personality—conditions I’ve always thought make for a good relationship.

14. Ok that scene in which Ash and Richie promise to make their battle the best on of their lives; how cute was that. Richie loves his bjtchie.

15. Notice how when “Richie” (actually Jessie) called Ash, he immediately went out to meet him, even after Misty/Brock told him not to.

16. Misty is clearly jealous of Richie (i.e. the foot stamp). She senses she has competition for Ash’s heart.

17. Richie wont let the match called on account of a forfeit; is it because he’s just a nice guy, or does he love his b;tchie.

18. Though he is happy that he won the battle, Richie is very upset to see Ash take the loss so hard; though the loss probably didn’t bother him so much as the fact Charizard didn’t listen to him. In any result, Richie is very concerned about Ash.

19. Ash visits Richie in the locker room before his next battle; nuff said.

20. Ash is so sad to see Richie loss to Assumpta (hobag). Now Richie doesn’t loose face because he has already asserted his dominance over Ash.

21. The scene that Richie beat Ash, while gagged with a pokeball ball-gag, with a cat of nine tails. Wait, did I imagine that?

The real 21. Richie and Ash share another romantic scene next to a lake.

22. There is a theory in which when trainers are in love, their Pokemon fall in love. Well in the lake scene, sparkie and Pikachu are clearly making out. Love frolic if I’ve ever saw one. Sparkie and Pikachu are just projecting what Ash and Richie are feeling.

23. Oh some manga ones. Ash and Richie talk about their upcoming match. Richie says he is going to be nervous, but then “the tension makes him come alive.” Ash relies “I know what you mean.” What kind of tension are we talking about, ah sexual.

24. Ash concedes the match when both of their Charizards are about to kill each other. Ash couldn’t let Richie’s Pokemon get hurt because he loves him.

25. The SUNSET scene. If this doesn’t show how romantic their love is, I don’t know what does.

26. The two blinking stars.

27. Richie goes to dinner with Ash & co; one last date before they part ways.

28. Ash chooses to match with Richie; just friends or lovas. Ok, that one isn’t very good.

29. Again, another romantic scene. They are the only two ones in the stadium. They say goodbye as a love ballad plays.

30. Oh, yeah. Ash seems extra motivated to get back to the league after he was kidnapped. Just his need to compete; no, I believe he says something about his promise to Richie.

31. Richie just happens to meet up with Ash at the whirl islands. Are we supposed to believe that was a coincidence? I think they made plans to meet for some sexage.

32. The coy smiles and glances from both parties when they see each other again.

33. Lugia is obviously trying to play match maker; it appear to both of them bringing them to the same location (if you don’t buy #31).

34. Are we supposed to believe there wasn’t some sort of fun going on when they changed into their scuba gear.

35. Ash looks particularly concerned when he sees Richie unconscious. At the very least, he stays by Richie’s side instead of checking on Misty or Brock.

36. Ash and Richie part ways in another typical romantic goodbye scene.

37. Ash babies his Lavitar more than any other Pokemon he has ever had. Could it be that it reminds him of Richie’s Pupitar.

38. Richie goes to Professor Oak’s lab in Pallet; he was obviously trying to find his b:tchie.

39. At the end of the same episode, Richie states his intention of meeting up with Ash again in Hoenn.

40. Richie shows us how much he lives to play matchmaker in the Celebi episode. If he likes to be a matchmaker, why wouldn’t he set up Misty and Ash if it wasn’t for the fact he is hot for Ash and that he knows/thinks Ash is a MO.

41. In the Moltres episode, he says how much Silver—one of his guys on the side—reminds him of Ash. He’s seeing Ash everywhere!

Arti's LeagueShipping Hint List

1. Before Ash met Richie, Gary has been seen as the primary homosexual love interest for Ash. After Ash beat Gary—thus loosing face in front of ash—, he meets Richie, his new love—coincidence!

2. Richie seems pretty damn adamant to get into Ash and co’s elevator. Are we supposed to believe he didn’t have a hidden agenda to get up close to and meet that piece of ***.

3. I have a theory that starter Pokemon are extensions to the trainer’s genital, and Richie seems to rubbing Pikachu the right way (ok, don’t start Pokeprophet LOL).

4. We all know Ash is a BIG mama’s boy, and she seems to greatly approve of Richie. And I quote “Cutie.”

5. When Ash and Richie meet up the next day, you can totally see that they are into each outer. All the coy glances from both parties.

6. Richie saves Ash’s life, though Ash is not happy about it, but she immediately forgives him because it is Richie, after all. But look very closely where Richie places his hands when he saves Ash. Touchy feely.

7. Decide to give up chasing after TR, so they “set up camp.” I bet many a tent was pitched.

8. The pillow talk, oh the pillow talk.

9. The onix in the sky. Now why would they project an onix in the sky.

10. They fight for dominance in their relationship by trying to outdo each with their dreams for the future. I believe Richie wins, thus becomes the man, because he will be the universe’s greatest Pokemon master.

11. A night under the stars together after a fire lit meal; how romantic.

12. Ash seems very upset that he will be battling his new love Richie in the 5th round.

13. Ash and Richie have similar taste in Pokemon, as well as similar interests and dreams, but they have different personality—conditions I’ve always thought make for a good relationship.

14. Ok that scene in which Ash and Richie promise to make their battle the best on of their lives; how cute was that. Richie loves his bjtchie.

15. Notice how when “Richie” (actually Jessie) called Ash, he immediately went out to meet him, even after Misty/Brock told him not to.

16. Misty is clearly jealous of Richie (i.e. the foot stamp). She senses she has competition for Ash’s heart.

17. Richie wont let the match called on account of a forfeit; is it because he’s just a nice guy, or does he love his b;tchie.

18. Though he is happy that he won the battle, Richie is very upset to see Ash take the loss so hard; though the loss probably didn’t bother him so much as the fact Charizard didn’t listen to him. In any result, Richie is very concerned about Ash.

19. Ash visits Richie in the locker room before his next battle; nuff said.

20. Ash is so sad to see Richie loss to Assumpta (hobag). Now Richie doesn’t loose face because he has already asserted his dominance over Ash.

21. The scene that Richie beat Ash, while gagged with a pokeball ball-gag, with a cat of nine tails. Wait, did I imagine that?

The real 21. Richie and Ash share another romantic scene next to a lake.

22. There is a theory in which when trainers are in love, their Pokemon fall in love. Well in the lake scene, sparkie and Pikachu are clearly making out. Love frolic if I’ve ever saw one. Sparkie and Pikachu are just projecting what Ash and Richie are feeling.

23. Oh some manga ones. Ash and Richie talk about their upcoming match. Richie says he is going to be nervous, but then “the tension makes him come alive.” Ash relies “I know what you mean.” What kind of tension are we talking about, ah sexual.

24. Ash concedes the match when both of their Charizards are about to kill each other. Ash couldn’t let Richie’s Pokemon get hurt because he loves him.

25. The SUNSET scene. If this doesn’t show how romantic their love is, I don’t know what does.

26. The two blinking stars.

27. Richie goes to dinner with Ash & co; one last date before they part ways.

28. Ash chooses to match with Richie; just friends or lovas. Ok, that one isn’t very good.

29. Again, another romantic scene. They are the only two ones in the stadium. They say goodbye as a love ballad plays.

30. Oh, yeah. Ash seems extra motivated to get back to the league after he was kidnapped. Just his need to compete; no, I believe he says something about his promise to Richie.

31. Richie just happens to meet up with Ash at the whirl islands. Are we supposed to believe that was a coincidence? I think they made plans to meet for some sexage.

I just thought of another one, a really good one if you ask me. Ash as Achilles, and Ritchie as Patroklos. Ash as the half-god warrior why defies the gods, and Ritchie as his faithfull lover. Seems like a good comparison.
In case one of you reading this has seen the movie 'Troy' and wants to start telling me that Achilles is not gay and was in it for a beautiful High-Priestess, save yourself the trouble. Troy, although a good movie, is just another fine example of how Hollywood will screw historical facts up just to sell more tickets. (Pearl Harbor, anyone?) Achilles didn't fight Troy for some chick, he fought it to revenge his lover. His male lover. Who certainly wasn't his cousin, as the movie suggests.
(By the way Arti, you should take the time to read Symposion, one of the books of Plato's Dialogues. It's about a big party with about twenty (homosexual) men, and just goes on about how gay men are so much stronger, wiser and braver then heterosexual.)

I haven't seen Troy, and that's the reason I really don't plan to. >.> that and Orlando Bloom *seethe*. I can totally see that! They feally fit into those roles. ^__^; **cuddles gaygreekloves** Hephaistion and Alexander, even? *chuckle* although Satoshi doesn't seem so bent on world domination...or is he? *grin*



Yes, you should. Great part about a poet who describes the origin of the three sexual preferences. He says that in the beginning, there were three, not two, genders on earth. Those who were whole female (the children of the Moon), those who were half female and half male (the children of the Earth) and those who were whole male (the children of the sun). These three genders were all much stronger than us, but they were too strong. They defied the Gods, which caused Zeus to become angry with them. In his rage, he threw a lightning bolt to them, which split all the beings in half. And that now causes each human being to constantly search for his counterpart, so that he or she can be whole again. The whole females have become the lesbians, the half female half male the straights, and the whole males the gay men. Naturally, the last kind is the strongest, bravest and smartest one, since it was originally whole male and males are considered superior.

That's what I remember, although my mind is a bit clouded on this one. Correct me if I'm wrong on any point, will you Arti?
By the way, symposium is not my favorite one. I think 'Apology', the defence of Socrates, is better. It taught me that no Christian can say I don't believe in god as a non-Christian, and it has fantastic quotes like "Dear people, please excuse me for being right" and "Fearing death is nothing more than fearing ones one ignorance". Hooray for Socrates.

Ahhh, I love you, Socrates and Plato.

And that myth was mentioned (has a song about it) in the movie Hedwig and the Angry Inch (EXCELLENT MOVIE!!!). The song Origin of Love, I'm almost positive.

^__^ it's weird to have a Pokeshipper so involved with a Leagueshipping discussion. *chuckle* it makes me respect the fans a little more >.>; (not to say that a lot of yaoi fangirls are *any* better).

And that's a good list of hints, Arti! XD You didn't go too overboard with the speculation and over-overanalyzation~ :3 hehe. I should steal that list and add some of my own things, if I notice them. OMG LEAGUESHIPPING! **clings to HiroSato forever~**

I agree. But to be fair, I think PokeProphet has said if Ash were to end up with a guy, it would be Richie. As for me, if Ash were to end up with a female HUMAN, she'd most likely end up with Misty--but it is all RICHIE-RITCHIE-HIROSHI!!!

So, I've been thinking all weekend for a good topic, but I couldn't think of one. Which irritates me. But not as much as Jetix irritates me. Jetix is the Dutch net that aires Pokemon. Untill today, that is. The bloody *******s are about to cancel it. So unfair, the show crap like 'What's with Andy?' and 'Totally Spies' about five times a day, and they don't have time for THE ANIME OF THE DECADE???

Sorry, needed to get rid of some frustration. There are two topics I thought of that, although not very good, are worth mentioning:

What (preferably fallic shaped) Pokemon symbolizes the love between Ash and Ritchie?

And, in light of the recent score on the poll:

If Ash and Ritchie were to marry, which one of them would would wear the wedding dress?

By the way, thanks for the compliments twilightespeon! I really appreciate it.

Do you need to ask that question!!!! The Onix symbolizes the love of Ash and Richie. Onix in the sky.

Well, I think Richie and Ash’s love identifies with the love of Takuya and Koji from Digimon season 4!!! Now which one is which...I'd say Richie is Takuya and Ash is Koji. (now anyone cannot say Takuya and Koji don't have something going on. I mean, their combined digievole. Remember in season 4, their clothing is ripped off before the union).

Wow, I've never thought about that!!! Well, I don't know how much the characters are similar to Richie and Ash, but their love is similar!

I think that the relationship between Noah and Mokie works (soley because of Tara Jayne). Mokuba=Richie and Noah=Ash, but in that scenario, and only that scenario, Ash/Noah is on top.

I'm sorry that your leagueshipping fic was deleted, but I guess you knew that might happen if you pushed the envelope like you love to do. Well anyway, now you've got another place to post it, its all good.

New Topic
When will Richie return to his Ash, and will their relationship be as close as it has been in the past?

Now Arti, I know you think Richie will show up in the Hoenn league, I have to deviate from that idea. I think Richie will reappear when the anime shifts to the battle frontier. Would it not be great if Richie joined the group for the entire frontier saga. There are double battles, right? Richie could be his partner. I think that is what will happen, after all, Richie said he was going to meet with Ash in hoso.

......

oh yeah, the second part of MY question,

Yes, they will be as close as ever

Oh come on, he could still show up during the Hoenn League. I know it is not likely, but I can still hope. I'm actually trying to stay away from the soilers for thoses eps. But I think it would be cool if he was a regular during the Battle Frontier eps. And it would be so cute if they battled together or against each other.

Second, I noticed your fic is moved. Did you get a chance to read my comments, before it was deleted? 'Cause if you didn't, I'll be happy to PM them to you.

Third, I thought up a new topic:
How will Ash and Ritchie name their adopted children, and who will come up with the names?

Yowch. You know, Zippo is a good name; and I still blame the English dubbers on the stupid English names. The Japanese names are really great.

I'm not sure about Arti, but I see Ash as the woman because seeing Richie as the woman is too conventional. Though, I'm sure Arti has some complicated way of seeing things like his Takuya+Koji pairing.

Hi everybody. I joined the forum mostly based on this thread and a few others. It's awesome to see open minded Poke-fans who realize Ash has an insane amount of homosexual tendancies for an anime character, and I think it makes him all the more unique and different.

Up until, perhaps a half a year ago, I was a hardcore Palletshipper. However...after reviewing most of the Richie episodes in reruns, I've slowly become convinced 3ShiShipping is the way to go! :)

I think Gary and Richie each represent a different half of Ash. Gary represents the art of training Pokemon in a classic, powerhouse kind of way...where you never become close with any of your Pokemon, and you evolve them as quickly as possible. Richie represents the polar-opposite, a newer approach where friendship and closeness with Pokemon comes before battling, as well as giving them care-free nicknames.

Ash falls right in the middle, sort of walking the fence between both methods.

And what do Gary and Richie offer Ash? Gary offers levity and sarcasm (defense mechanism tools that could help Ash with difficulty in aging) and Richie offers a more positive outlook on life, one filled with surprise and care-free feelings (which could help Ash stay young at Heart as he matures).

I do think the anime is missing out on a HUGE potential of having Gary and Richie become sort of "rivals" for Ash (kind of like how Tristan and Duke rivaled for Serenity on YuGiOh!), who is oblivious to the intentions around him...for awhile at least. :p

If Ash were to end up with just Richie, I think he would be happy and content, even though it would be strange to be around Gary in the future (since I think Gary may have gave up training because he was tired of the rivalry...still up in the air about that). I think Ash and Richie would end up discovering all the mysterious and legendary Pokemon out there together, which would make for one fulfilling life for these two. The whole "Pokemon Master" thang might come up eventually, though.

I voted they would switch...I can't see either as the "all-time top", they'd probably have a Pokemon battle nightly to decide. :p If Gary was with them, there would be no confusion because he would be the out and out top. :D

I just got a very disturbing PM from arti. Apparently he's really, really ill and going to be out for the next few weeks, but I'm sure he would want us to keep this thread active.

just get better arti!


Awesome. Thanks a lot Flygonboy69! :) A 3ShiShipper! Yay! (I think Doduo represents 3Shi perfectly... :p )
Yes it is certainly good to have more 3ShiShippers around. Leagueshipping and PalletShipping work very good together, especially in the manga.


I finished Love in Ruins...Articuno_trumps_all, you are a great writer and I can totally see why Leagueshipping has not only merit, but definate sparkage! Awwwwwe! <3 (I totally HEARTED Misty's reaction to the news...classic!)
Yes, that is one of my favorite parts of his fic as well. I think that the love scene with Richie and Ash was really good too. It was romantic and tasteful, and I think it is ridiculous that it was banned on this forum. Ok, maybe the GL scenes was what did it in. It is one of the best fics that was posted here. It was also great that the big secret was that Richie slept with Gary.

Welcome GaryAshRitchie. If you joined the forum because of this thread, you'll probably know who I am. The Pokeshipper with a soft spot for Leagueshipping. I hope you will help us keep this thread active now our friend and leader is gone for a while.

Wow, HOW many people have been lured to this forum by Arti and his leagueshipping. First that Brawlygirl, then me, then fanderichie, and now GaryAshRichie. And Richie is back on the TOP of the poll. It never suprises me how many people take the time to vote, but don't take the time to explain their vote.

Yeah, it is a good ending, but I know Arti planned for it to be an on-going project. I know Misty is supposed to try to make Ash switch teams. But of course, we should not expect an update in a while.

About Arti's fic, I think it was deleted because of the GL sex-scene. I can't imagine that it was deleted because of the love scene between Ash and Ritchie, it was tasteful, romantic and had some nice Greek elements in it, but nothing explicit. I can't wait to read the new chapters, but we'll have to have patience.

About your fic, GaryAshRitchie (is it okay if I called you GAR?) if you don't want to put in on Serebii, maybe you can ask Arti to place it on his site as soon as he gets back. I'm sure he'll do that for you.

About your sig, Flygonboy69, you should definitely keep it! It's fantastic. And I'm just happy you like my idea so much.

So what songs do you think describe Leagueshipping or 3shishipping? I can picture Gary and Ritchie singing "The girl is mine", originally by Paul McCartney and Micheal Jackson, to and about Ash. How about you guys?

Really? How cool is that? I can just imagine how frisky all three get after a stadium battle. :p

I guess the whole Gary/Richie aspect of the 3Shi is still kind of a puzzler to me. But it would make sense for Gary and Richie to have that old "Gary/Ash Rivals but made for each other" theme...I mean, they're doing it right now with May and Drew and I'm happy to say the formula still works!

I suppose I'll just continue getting a feel for how the two would interact as I continue writing. And it's cool, because the more I write, the more I become familiar with the intricacies of how such a threesome relationship could actually work.


Wow! I can't wait to see it. We warned, if it gets too dirty, the mods here will delete it like they did with Arti's.

Honestly, since I'm still fairly early on, I haven't given too much thought as to how racy it should get. Right now, I've been working on a lot of homoeroticness between the three, and some thick sexual tension, and above all else...PLOT...but none of it's been overt as much as innuendo and half-meanings.

I mean, I could allude to it with them all smiling dewey-eyed at each other then "fade to black" as a subtle message, or I could just have them get down with full-blown threesome sex. I can write both ways...just not sure yet. Suggestions would be most appreciated!

And if I decide to have 3Shisomes going on in my fic, I'll totally take that under consideration. Thanx! :)

I like your pick for 3Shi. Mine would be somewhat similar. Brandy and Monica's The Boy Is Mine. I can just picture Gary and Richie getting in eachother's faces singing "I'm sorry that you...seem to be confused. He belongs with me. The. Boy. Is. Mine."

Perhaps you could do both. Make a censored version to post on Serebii, and a dirty version to put on Arti's website. That way everybody will be satisfied (PUNPUNPUN).

So, I've been thinking all weekend for a good topic, but I couldn't think of one. Which irritates me. But not as much as Jetix irritates me. Jetix is the Dutch net that aires Pokemon. Untill today, that is. The bloody *******s are about to cancel it. So unfair, the show crap like 'What's with Andy?' and 'Totally Spies' about five times a day, and they don't have time for THE ANIME OF THE DECADE???

Sorry, needed to get rid of some frustration. There are two topics I thought of that, although not very good, are worth mentioning:

What (preferably fallic shaped) Pokemon symbolizes the love between Ash and Ritchie?

And, in light of the recent score on the poll:

If Ash and Ritchie were to marry, which one of them would would wear the wedding dress?

By the way, thanks for the compliments twilightespeon! I really appreciate it.

>_< Wow, that's a really stupid decision on their part. **kicks them** Maybe they'll come to their senses and realize what a BAD idea financially that is.



What (preferably fallic shaped) Pokemon symbolizes the love between Ash and Ritchie?

Pffft, it's not phallic. XD Out of all the testosterone-induced couples out there, Leagueshipping is not very high on my list! I think it's their Pikachu. They're sort of avatars of their owners...and the fact that they're the bestest BEST of friends, sort of has the potential to symbolize their owner's relationship, and...MY GOD DID YOU SEE THEM ROLLING AROUND LIKE THAT!? x_x; It honestly seems like it's meant to symbolize how close the two boys got in such a short period of time. And the fact that they watched the fireworks together and all that good stuff. x_x; my god, just...ughh. It's so slashy~ *goes off on tangents*

If Ash and Ritchie were to marry, which one of them would would wear the wedding dress?

XD BOTH OF THEM. I dunno, I really don't see them in a Top and Bottom situation!!! They seem like such equals, that when that time came around, Shigeru would probably try to force Satoshi into one... >.> much to Hiroshi's (and probably Kasumi's as well) downright amusement.

Unless we're talking about Manga!Hiroshi...>.> Now he's just GIRLY.

Yeah, through the medium of a hetero coupling, they are definately free to explore levels that Palletshipping couldn't due to the certain backlash. But based on the last few Johto episodes, I'd wager Gary actually would be at the stage of handing Ash random roses...not to mention that at this point, Gary could very well begin being 'uncomfortable' around his 'harping cheerleaders' (Obviously for slightly different reasons than Drew).

I find it fascinating and I'll always have a soft mushy spot for Contestshipping! I wouldn't be surprised if we find out Drew and May find an old contest ribbon somewhere and tug it into two pieces, then proceed to carry it around together secretly. :p

Isn't it though. I love the whole Richie+Gary aspect of 3shiShipping, but it also contibutes to the Leagueshipping as well. Cuz Ash doesn't fall in love with Richie until Richie beats Gary, or in the case of the anime, him.

I think you are referring to the pokeball Ash and Gary shared before they went their separate ways. I (Pokeshipper) got SO angry with Ash for that. Misty had travelled with him for years, saving his life on various occasions and supporting him through thick and thin, and she gets nothing when she leaves. Gary leaves, and Ash goes running after him to give him on half of a Pokeball. By that time, I thought I was turning into a Pallethipper. No worse, I thought ASH was turning into a Palletshipper!

Yes. Although there's a bit more backstory to the Pokeball in question. A few episodes before that, Gary came up to Ash before their last battle, showed him his half of the Pokeball, and asked him if he remembered it. Ash says of course, and we find out that even before Ash became a trainer, he and Gary were both fishing at a river (uber-cute scene) and caught a Pokeball at the exact same time. They both tug, and it breaks in half. We then find out both had kept it on their person the entire run of the show. After Ash beats Gary, Gary meets up with him at night and gives him his half of the Pokeball. Then in "Gotta Catch Ya Later", yes, Ash feels the need to give it back to him.

I think that's my favorite subplot of the show...it was so sweet! With the music, the midnight convos., ect.

Now why am I not too enthusiastic about this movie? By the way, there's a Dutch movie on its way to run in the American theatres. The title is 'Simon' and it has some controversial topics in it like homosexuality and euthanasia. Topics that are fortunately a lot less controversial here in Holland. I hope you enjoy!

LOL! To Wong Fu, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar is a movie that came out in the mid-90's. It's stars Patrick Swayze, John Legueziamo, and Wesley Snipes as three drag queens who go on a journey from New York to Los Angeles to become Drag Queen Champions. I guess you'd have to see the movie to understand, but it's funny!

My pics for them would be either...

Miss Vita - Richie

Noxeema - Gary

Chi Chi Rodriguez - Ash


Or, alternatively...

Miss Vita - Brock

Noxeema - Misty

Chi Chi Ridriguez - Ash
Well, I'll have to take your word for it. I might check the movie out.


Now why am I not too enthusiastic about this movie? By the way, there's a Dutch movie on its way to run in the American theatres. The title is 'Simon' and it has some controversial topics in it like homosexuality and euthanasia. Topics that are fortunately a lot less controversial here in Holland. I hope you enjoy!
I'll keep an eye out for it.

Hummm. I dunno who I'd put in the To Wong Foo cast. XD again, Hiroshi and Satoshi don't seem that fabulous...Oh god, I should bring this up in the GL thread to see what those crazies come up with XD *loves them*



flygonboy69: Capt., the Advanceship-of-prey has invaded our airspace, your orders
articuno_trumps_all: I hate to do this. Hail the U.S.S. Pokeship
fanderichie: Yes sir
PokeProphet: Ah capt. articuno_trumps_all, we meet again. To what do I owe this pleasure
a_t_a: We are being invaded
PP: I thought the 3shiShippers negotiated a peace treaty between Leagueshippers and the Palletshippers in the yaoi-quadrant
fb69: Theres peace between our people but the AdvanceShippers, the surge of the hetero-quadrant, is launching an attack
PP: Thats in violation of the SPPF charter
We will rendezvous with the U.S.S. LeagueShip as soon as possible
a_t_a: Together we will destroy our enemies. But remember, this CHANGES NOTHING
twilightespeon: Capt., the Advanceship-of-prey is decloaking
a_t_a: Red alert all hands to battlestations

(besides, I've always likened Brock to Kirk...can't imagine why XD)

I'll try the TNG cast, for fun

Picard - Ash
Riker - Richie
Deanna - May
Worf - Gary

Geordie - Brock
Data - Tracey
Tasha Yar - Mai Oak (where'd she go?)

XD. I like to compare them to DS9 characters.

Dax=Ash(Dax the symbiot, not a particular host, so Dax is both male/female and bisexual)
Worf=Gary
Dr. Bashir=Richie

Dax was with Worf first, like Ash was with Gary first. Then, when Dax was joined with another host, s/he ended up with Bashir. However, the three of them had some sorta wierd three-way thing going on. So that pairing works for leagueshipping and 3shiShipping. :)

GaryAshRichie
15th May 2005, 4:12 AM
Yeah, that does fit. Their personalities even mesh...Worf is broody, Dax is open and carefree, Dr. Bashir is smart and enthusiastic.

I think Terry Farrell is definately a hot older female version of Ash (in drag? :p ) and hey, the second actress has a likeness as well.

Yay, I knew you would like my pairing! I loved Terry Farrell as Jadzia Dax. She was a part of one of the best woman on woman kisses on prime-time television EVER. I'm SOOOO GAY, but even I got turned on, but Nicole de Boer was pretty good as Ezri Dax (I LOVED when she went psycho, when the previous host that was a muderer took over). LOL, and Dr. Bashir was genetically-engineered, so he is like a super-human, good at everything, like what some people say about Richie.

Terry Farrell=Ash in love with Gary

Oh, definately. That kiss was melting t.v. screens across America! Great pics of both...LOL, it's uncanny!

If they were to keep aging Ash, he will have to develop a love that's not for Pokemon sooner or later...and I think the episode where Dax and former lover Kahn got together would be an AWESOME "reunion" episode for Ash and Richie. "Oooh...the taboo!"

Gary, of course, would be the broody Worf skulking around all freaked out.

Incidently, Mirror-Jadzia and Mirror-Ezri were both slashy trashy bisexual women of easy virtues...I think Ash needs to visit a Mirror Universe. :p

Pffft. Why? :D Kirk-sama doesn't *have* to seduce the ladies. They just start falling all over him and humping his leg. XD he almost never starts anything, unless he genuinely likes the girl (happened maybe ten times out of the entire series...God, not even that many...he's only kissed exactly 17 women in 77 episodes. Horndog playboy? I think-eth not.) or he's trying to charm his way to her weakest spot to then step on her to make sure his ship (and First Officer) are safe.

Sorry I got so off subject, but the whole blindingly-obvious-couple/chemistry theme is one of the biggest themes of Leagueshipping X3 Probably why it's one of my favorites. **cuddles Leagueshipping and K/S** Plus, I will not stand to have Kirk likened to Takeshi. XD I will not! *puts foot down*

Kirk=Satoshi, Spock=Hirosh, Yeomand Rand=Kasumi. XD it totally fits.

You know it is going to happen, and it will happen soon. I'm still convinced he will show up for the BF.

That fits him so much it is scary.

LOL, it isn't like the non-mirror Jadzia and Ezri weren't that slashy trashy and busexual. They just only had slips with the easy virtues ever now and then. e.g. Jadzia with Kahn and Ezri with Worf. If the Trills ever found out about the night Ezri and Worf spent together in that prison, Dax would he in some major trouble.

I think Ash needs to visit a Mirror Universe.
I'm trying to picture it, but I'm having some trouble seeing all the consequences:
-Ash would be an expert on love.
-Brock would hit on every BOY he sees.
-Every girl would be all over Brock, but he would have none of that filthy het stuff.
-Misty would be Prima's idol.
-James would be straight.
-Jessie would be nice.
-Max would be interesting.
-Advanceshipping would have hints.

And that's only the tip of the iceberg. On all the other stuff, well, I like a Star Trek-episode now and then, but I really don't know the names of the characters. One thing I do know, however, is that Worf ended up with a chick. So, is he still the perfect image of Gary?

By the way:

LOL!!!!!!! :) He ended with DAX, who is neither chick nor guy, is a non-humanoid in a humanoid's body who has the memories of being both male and female, and is bisexual. So Dax was in Jadzia at the time, it isn't like Ash is more manly than Jadzia. Some say Worf married Jadzia, but he married Jadzia-Dax. XD!! Sisko used to refer to that "chick" Worf married as "Old Man." Jadzia may have a hoohoo, but she once had hahas.

Errrrrrr..... right! Thank you for correcting me on that point. I think. Like I said, I'm not much of a trekkie. I know the mayor plotlines, but that's it. The recent death of all the series didn't hurt me nearly as much as 'Gotta Catch ya Later' did. However, there's one thing about ST engrained in my mind, one thing I know 100% sure.

As fun and feminine as Jadzia got (thinking Risa vacation)...Ash will never be manlier than she was! :P That's definately why they match so well! Older Ash would be happy and smiling if he was relaxing in a spa, hanging with gal-pals, or battling to the death with a Bat'leth!

Jadzia's best friend was Kira...kinda reminds me of a certain tough cookie redhead Ash likes to hang with.

Well I see them equally frolicing in a Sunflora field, I see then equally sipping on a chocolate malt, and I see them equally choosing out outfits at the store. In fact, I can't think of one duty Ash or Ritchie could accomplish over the other. :p

Well, the recent death of Enterprise or the final years of Voyager didn't hurt me nearly as much as the franchise losing Terry Farrell and Jennifer Lien. And while I thought Jeri Ryan did fine in her role, it was embarrasing seeing Trek putting it's ladies in skin-tight catsuits on a weekly basis. That mentality definately carried over to Enterprise...which I feel counteracted some of the Women's Lib the ORIGINAL Star Trek provided!

I LOVE DS9, early Voyager and earlier Trek, but I'll agree that "Gotta Catch Ya Later" has waaaay more depth than Enterprise. :p

Still, it's not Jolene Blalock's fault... :p



AND YOU KNOW IT! Did you ever see somebody cry during a Star Trek movie? Because I cried during 'Gotta catch ya later', and I know more Pokeshippers who did so.

I swear, I thought I was sharing the certain annurism Ash was having when Brock and Misty both just dumped the news on him, so randomly. Then the whole thing with Gary. I remember my jaw just dropped and I couldn't believe they went there. Honestly, I'm glad Team Rocket stuck around because I wouldn't have been able to hadle them "blasting off for the final time" or something like that also.

Well, I just checked out our live journal, like I do every day to see a sign from him. Luckily, somebody 'anonymous' is keeping us informed about how Arti's doing. You can see it by going to 'comments' in his last update. Appearantly, the surgery he had to go through went rather well. The only problem is that they don't know whether the cancer is malignant. He should have gotten home last Sunday, so I'm hoping we'll hear from him soon. I think you two will get along GAR, you really have a lot in common with him.

Oh, and about the Star Trek talk? I'll be honest with you. I really, really don't have the faintest clue what you're talking about.

I”M BACK!!! And the tumor is benign!! I’ve been recuperating, physically and mostly mentally, for the past few days, and it is weird to only have use of one of my ears. If you want the whole story, here is a link to my LJ.

http://www.livejournal.com/users/arti_t_a/4736.html

+++++++++++++
OMG it is so good to be back. I’ve missed you all! Wow, I have sooooo much catching up to do! Some of my comments maybe asinine, but that just because I have sooo much to respond to. Thank you all for that!!!! XOXOXO


Why do you consider Ash to be the feminine half of the pairing? I mean, Ritchie's the one who has a top ten of reasons why he is a girl on Pokemopolis. :p
Oh, well if they say Richie is a girl on Pokemopolis it MUST BE TRUE. Honestly, I think their Richie crap is just mean spirited. I’m down with all the dodgyness, but what they say about Richie in the character bios is just mean. I like to put Richie as the man because, like I said, the mild-mannered people mostly turn out domineering when the doors are closed! I also refer you to #10 and 20 of my list.


I voted they would switch...I can't see either as the "all-time top", they'd probably have a Pokemon battle nightly to decide. :p If Gary was with them, there would be no confusion because he would be the out and out top. :D
First of all, it is very nice to meet you “GAR.” Your sig is too cute and Gary is adorable in your avatar. I like the threeway ship too, but my heart lies with Leagueshipping. Second, Richie TOTALLY made Gary his ***** in the indigo league in the manga. I have to object to the statement that Gary is always on top.


I finished Love in Ruins...Articuno_trumps_all, you are a great writer and I can totally see why Leagueshipping has not only merit, but definate sparkage! Awwwwwe! <3 (I totally HEARTED Misty's reaction to the news...classic!)
Thank you very much. I try. ZOMG, in my anesthesia induced rest I got a few good ideas for updates on the fic. MAYBE GARY NEEDS TO SHOW UP. But I am getting ahead of myself.


I just got a very disturbing PM from arti. Apparently he's really, really ill and going to be out for the next few weeks, but I'm sure he would want us to keep this thread active.

just get better arti!

I got that PM too. It scared the living **** out of me. Arti has really been a good friend to me on this forum, I can't imagine how things would be without him. But I agree with you Flygonboy69. The three of us will keep this thread active, and just hope for Arti to get well soon.

I'm so sorry with Arti's news on livejournal....I hope he'll recovered as soon as possible...
I agree with you that this thread must be opened...

I'LL LOVE RICHIE FOREVER!!!!!!!!
AWWWW, thank you all for your support. I’m back now and I don’t plan on leaving anytime soon. Fanderichie, it is good to see you in this thread. We leagueshippers need to unite.


Wow, HOW many people have been lured to this forum by Arti and his leagueshipping. First that Brawlygirl, then me, then fanderichie, and now GaryAshRichie. And Richie is back on the TOP of the poll. It never suprises me how many people take the time to vote, but don't take the time to explain their vote.
LOL, its cuz me and my ship are awesome XD. LOL, I can think of one of those people who was not as great to have on board as some others. Ten guesses who I’m talking about.


OK, GAR it is

Really? How cool is that? I can just imagine how frisky all three get after a stadium battle.
Yeah. It is one of my favorite pokemon moments ever. Gary is all serious, and Richie is all smiles. Richie is too cute because Richie doesn't even come up to Gary neck. Everyone counts Richie out, and then he goes and kicks Gary's ***. Best manga moment ever.
YAY. I totally agree. It is one of my fav moments. Richie is sooo short in the manga, it is adorable.


Perhaps you could do both. Make a censored version to post on Serebii, and a dirty version to put on Arti's website. That way everybody will be satisfied (PUNPUNPUN).
I’ll agree to that. I’d love to post it, and I will give you all the credit.


LOL! I could. It wouldn't even be that hard to do so. Thanks, I think I'll go that route. :p
Sounds like a plan then!


Are you referring to that nappy scientist Gary's working with? Eh...I hope it's a case of '*** hag setting herself up for disaster'. I mean, it's not completely impossible that Gary has 'Ashy' tattoed on his inner thigh...right? :D
OMG, and WE ALL KNOW HOW WELL *** HAGS WORK OUT. Again, ten guesses who I am talking about.


>_< Wow, that's a really stupid decision on their part. **kicks them** Maybe they'll come to their senses and realize what a BAD idea financially that is.



What (preferably fallic shaped) Pokemon symbolizes the love between Ash and Ritchie?

Pffft, it's not phallic. XD Out of all the testosterone-induced couples out there, Leagueshipping is not very high on my list! I think it's their Pikachu. They're sort of avatars of their owners...and the fact that they're the bestest BEST of friends, sort of has the potential to symbolize their owner's relationship, and...MY GOD DID YOU SEE THEM ROLLING AROUND LIKE THAT!? x_x; It honestly seems like it's meant to symbolize how close the two boys got in such a short period of time. And the fact that they watched the fireworks together and all that good stuff. x_x; my god, just...ughh. It's so slashy~ *goes off on tangents*

If Ash and Ritchie were to marry, which one of them would would wear the wedding dress?

XD BOTH OF THEM. I dunno, I really don't see them in a Top and Bottom situation!!! They seem like such equals, that when that time came around, Shigeru would probably try to force Satoshi into one... >.> much to Hiroshi's (and probably Kasumi's as well) downright amusement. XD plus, we have seen him in drag a number of times!

Unless we're talking about Manga!Hiroshi...>.> Now he's just GIRLY.


EDIT: AURGH Firefox made me miss a whole page x_x;

-Welcome GaryAshRichie!

-Yes, Contestshipping is like Palletshipping's baby sister X3.

GERRR, oh well. Richie is still the all-time man in their relationship. GOOOO RICHIE!!!

And finally, my Leagueshipping song. I blame PokeProphet for this one, LOL.

I think this song can be very fitting to that special night Ash and Richie spent together under the stars. Plus the last line really sums up LeagueShipping.

Your sig is too cute and Gary is adorable in your avatar. I like the threeway ship too, but my heart lies with Leagueshipping.

Isn't he, though? I have no idea where the image is coming from...but whatever it is, it's on my list to see someday! *hopeful*

I've recently watched most of the Richie eppy's and it's so evident when they are around each other. I mean, how often is it that you can stare at a hottie and he'll just stand there staring back 24/7?


Richie TOTALLY made Gary his ***** in the indigo league in the manga. I have to object to the statement that Gary is always on top.

Ha! :D Gary's a top, but I suppose even he would be scared sh**less by Richie's dominatrix ways. You are so right, btw, that Richie is SO the type that would allow all his negative pent up frustration to be released in a dark sexual way. It balances him out and keeps him happy.

And as for Gary losing the battle to Richie...what can I say? He probably caught 'loser-itis'!! :p (I


Thank you very much. I try. ZOMG, in my anesthesia induced rest I got a few good ideas for updates on the fic. MAYBE GARY NEEDS TO SHOW UP. But I am getting ahead of myself.

I saw in your response to my 3Shi story (thanx, btw!) that you are an English major. Of course I find that awesome as I am also majoring in English. I guess that doesn't surprise me.


I’ll agree to that. I’d love to post it, and I will give you all the credit.

OMG, and WE ALL KNOW HOW WELL *** HAGS WORK OUT. Again, ten guesses who I am talking about.

Yeah, I have a feeling Misty is sitting in her room listening to "Misty's Song" over and over right now.


GERRR, oh well. Richie is still the all-time man in their relationship. GOOOO RICHIE!!!

If it makes you feel any better, it's pretty obvious Ash will turn out to be the bottom in ANY relationship he ends up in. Even IF he were to succumb to the tomboyish ways of Misty, she'd end up needing a dil*o to get anything accomplished. *evil*

I have always like the Cranberries and that song works for them!

Nice to meet you too, Arti, and I must say this is a wonderful surprise to see your back and going to be okay. Your thread is the reason I joined this forum in the first place! You are DA BOMB!
You're not the first one to join the SPPF because of this thread (or the fic). It makes me feel good. Like I'm not crazy! You should see what they are doing to my Leagueshipping thread on PC. Those people are soooo homophobic (well, most of them).


but I suppose even he would be scared sh**less by Richie's dominatrix ways. You are so right, btw, that Richie is SO the type that would allow all his negative pent up frustration to be released in a dark sexual way. It balances him out and keeps him happy.

And as for Gary losing the battle to Richie...what can I say? He probably caught 'loser-itis'!!
Yay, I'm not the only one to see Richie's dominatrix ways!!!

Okay, at first I had no idea what PC was, but I figured it was another forum. So, I typed LeagueShipping in Yahoo and the very thread you mentioned was the first address it offered. Wow. That reminds me a lot of the old Palletshipping threads I used to make years ago. But what can you expect from such brilliants minds that say...


Mwar, I don't believe in gay Ash. Maybe some of the writers do, but I don't.

Unless it's Ash×Charizard, and even that's iffy [humans decicrating Charizards like that... o.0]


Ok. Ash is not gay with Richie. Pokemon and other animes usally reflect the japanese and chniaese culture(Notice that every once and a while you can find towns in pokemon with the old japnese look). If Ash and Richie had a thing for each other then it would be dead because I don't think the culture wants to be represented that way.

Ash is firends with everybody and he more intrested with Pokemon. If he is in love with any body it is with Misty. The prove is there (Show and movie)

It's truly sad and f***ed up you even had to defend yourself against such idiocracy. And for that matter, all the mods there are obviously piss-poor quality for even letting your thread delve into not only a gay-bash, but a freebie Pokeshipping and Advanceshipper thread. Nice.

I'm not sure if they're even going to show them. Ick. I'm hoping that they do. I mean if the UK gets PokeChronicles, the US should. But I've seen all the Richie hosos. My favorite is the Moltres one. LOL, Silver is Richie's Sugar Daddy who he says reminds him of Ash.

XD, if you get lucky, you can send tapes back and forth of your favorite tv shows. She really likes the soap Days of our Lives, so I send her a tape every now and then, and she returns the favor.

I know, it just helps prove Ash is his true love. Silver is just a "guy on the side" that would just buy him pretty things while taking him for "rides" on his pokemon. LOL, Silver so has his hand on Richie's thigh.

As for this 3shiShipping, I think it is cool. After all I am a pre-Indigo PalletShipper. I'm a Post-Indigo LeagueShipper. And, after all, a lot of the Leagueshipping hints are directly related to PalletShipping.

Here is my new topic:

IF YOU WERE TO INVERT THE GENDERS OF THE POKEMON CHARACTERS, WHICH FICTIONAL CHARACTERS WOULD THEY BE?

I choose the show Xena.

Xena=Richie
Gabrielle=Ash
Callisto=Gary
Salmonius=Misty

Xena is the man in Gabrielle and Xena's relationship, so Richie is the obvious choice. Callisto and Xena had some things going on, and do did Gabrielle and Callisto (but nothing trumps the fact that Callisto FATHERED Xena's baby). Plus Callisto fits Gary's personality. LOL. And Salmonius likes all the girls, but all the girls like other girls, so he is of course Misty.

Well, I don't think there is much known about Richie's hometown/upbringing/childhood. If I could guess, I'd say he's from the Seafoam Islands; that’s why he wears so much seafoam green :). I’d be willing to bet that he had really sheltering and crazy parents. He left home, not only to pursue his dreams, but to get away from them (I’m projecting my own life onto him, I know).

By the way, I've put up the third chapter of my fic. Yeah I no, no advertising, but I'm just glad some people are reading it. If you've read the chapter and can't help wondering; Yes, I asked his permission. Via PM. How is your fic doing Arti? Any progress?

That's cool. I'm trying to get a better mind for Richie while I write my fic. That's an interesting trait for him. I definately think I can understand the need to get away from crazy parents asap, and getting your life really started.

Thank you so much. I had so much fun writing it. LOL, I should really finish those term papers I missed being out sick. Hell, I've got until the end of the summer cuz I've been "traumatized." Well, I'll finish them soon.

Anyway, I added the letter from Richie right before I posted it. I thought it added something *queue the music*.

Richie is so awesome! I love the fact that he has that air of mystery...only certain men know what his hair color really is. Out of curiousity, do y'all prefer him blonde or brunette? He looks adorable as both, btw.


LOL, I should really finish those term papers I missed being out sick. Hell, I've got until the end of the summer cuz I've been "traumatized." Well, I'll finish them soon.
LOL, yeah better to get those off your chest.


BTW, GAR, did you see our discussion on the parallels between Pokemon and the movie Party Monster. You’ve seen the movie, I’m sure. And LOL, I'm glad you like the ending. I like the looping thing.

LOVE Party Monster! And sure, if ya wanna really trip out the fab three, I guess Ash would have to be Michael Alig, since he's so naive and dense. Keoke would...hmmm...yeah, Keoke would probably be Richie because of the whole "Pull yourself together" attitude. Gary would be the snarky bi!ch James. And...Todd would be Angel.


Great pics GAR. I like the one with Ash on the ekans. Also the last one is too cute as well.
Thanks! Good to see you again, btw. I have more pics, but I assume Arti has pretty much all the Richie pics already!

I like him better as a blonde. I don't know why. I guess it sets him more apart from Gary/Ash.

I had a feeling you'd like that movie. I didn't think of Todd as Angel before. Haha, I'm just picturing Ash killing Todd.

Thanks! I'm glad you liked how I wrote for Richie, because he's a lot of fun to write for. I think his assertiveness is a great, unique aspect of the Shi3.


I like him better as a blonde. I don't know why. I guess it sets him more apart from Gary/Ash.
True, it does give him a direct difference to them, but as a Shi3er I do kinda dig the perfect triangle they make aesthetically. I mean, all three do kind of bi-compliment each-other.


I had a feeling you'd like that movie. I didn't think of Todd as Angel before. Haha, I'm just picturing Ash killing Todd.
Would Sparky or Pikachu be the fated cat? And I'm getting visions of Gary calling Ash in jail, just to rub his incarceration in his face. Hehehe...

Hmmmm...Leagueshippy...will these do?

Don't you mean tri-compliment *slaps knee at my droll humor*

LOL. Don't you remember, there are TWO cats.
Sparkie=Srinck (Srinck la do to you)
Pikachu=Scrod (Scrod la dahda)

It just furthers the parallel between Pokemon (aka Pocket MONSTERS) and Pary Monster.


Richie, with a wry smirk, takes a moment to feel up Ash. Priceless reaction shot.
I must say, that is one of the best LS screencap I've seen in awhile. THANK YOU!!


Ash flirting with Richie.
I think that has to go on my big list of LS hints. He is so winking at Ash.


Their hands are suspiciously close...yet hidden to the others.
OMG, it is a secert hand hold. This helps to prove they're together. :)

Its cuz Ash and Richie want to be together. They are so cute.

The Richie+Misty pairing is IndigoShipping. It really is the most obvious and fitting name for LeagueShipping, but big shock that a het pairing gets it even though the het pairing makes absolutely no sense. Gerrr. There is no love loss between Misty and Richie (PokeLeagueShipping doesn't work either). They're both after Ash, lol, but one is barking up the wrong tree.

Thanx GAR. The pics made my day, and you've given me a few hints that even I missed.

XD, it is not like I dislike seeing Gary (in fact I wish there were anime 3shi pics, but they never met each other in the anime).

Awww, you think PokeLeagueShipping doesn't work? Or are you just afraid that Misty is too dominant for both of the boys? Well, there goes my only hope of me ever being in the same ship as you. Although that's not entirely true. I recently found out we're both Polarshippers Arti. Isn't that great?

LOL, could you imagine the look on both our faces if Indigoshipping came true?

By the way, the picture gets even more confusing if you add Gary to the PokeLeagueShipping picture. That would mean *takes a deep breath* PokeLeagueIndigoEgoPalletShipping . And that's not even complete, 'cause we don't have a name for the Gary-Ritchie pairing. Any idea's?

Well, could you see Misty sharing Ash with anyone, let alone RICHIE. And Misty isn't Richie's favorite person either. Just look how they interact, even after Misty finds out Richie isn't a sleaze (ie talking Ash out of competing in the IL). I think Misty recognizes Richie as her major competition.

Yay, you’re a PolarShipper too. And you claimed it, kudos. It is like the cutest Yu-gi-oh ship ever, expect for StepShipping. LOL, I'm collecting Tara Jayne shippings. Noah and Mokuba are such a cute couple, even though Mokie is more like a brain-washed love slave. But who could deny their love. WHO. It is more obvious than LeagueShipping.

Fortunately, it will NEVER happen.

There isn't a Gary+Richie name yet. I find that hard to believe. I'm going to have to look into that, but if there is no name, I think it would be called ConsolationShipping.

EDIT: it is called RivialShipping.

I must say, that is one of the best LS screencap I've seen in awhile. THANK YOU!!
Great, I'm glad you liked it. The first thing I thought when I saw it was "Arti'll love this" :p

There is no love loss between Misty and Richie (PokeLeagueShipping doesn't work either). They're both after Ash, lol, but one is barking up the wrong tree.
Wow, in all my years as a net Pokemon fan, I've never come across one Indigoshipping fic, and I've kept my eyes out for Richie fics in the past. What possible scene from any of Richie's eppy's could anyone extrapolate any sort of bond between them?

I can make the same case for back when I was a hardcore Palletshipper. I NEVER understood where Egoshippers were coming from, because Misty pretty much never even got one word in with Gary when Ash was around. Hmmm.


XD, it is not like I dislike seeing Gary (in fact I wish there were anime 3shi pics, but they never met each other in the anime).
Well, the most frustrating (and only) 3Shi example I can think of is during the Johto (I believe) opening credits, when you see Ash, then Gary and Richie both appear right behind him. If you pause it correctly, it's just them onscreen. BTW, I think Consolationshipping is a GREAT name. Awwe!


By the way, the picture gets even more confusing if you add Gary to the PokeLeagueShipping picture. That would mean *takes a deep breath* PokeLeagueIndigoEgoPalletShipping.
If you add Rivalshipping that makes PokeLeagueIndigoEgoPalletRivalshipping, or to save time perhaps we should just call it STDshipping. ;)


Oh, and why did someone bumb that *****'s palletshipping thread. That girl is so nasty.
I've thought about starting a Palletshipping/3Shi thread in the past, but then I thought 'what's the point?' since it would pretty much be the same people anyways. *shrug* I've also considered a GLBT-type thread so peeps can discuss the show from their view w/o always having to justify themselves with scores of people who don't even wanna consider the possibility that Ash could be bi.
Like in the recent episode, "That's Just Swellow!" did you guys see the tiny spark between Ash and Shane? It was small, and went no where, but Ash was definately jonesing for a moment there. :p (And I think there's more of a case for Shane being Ash's long lost brother than Richie even)

I like the blonde Richine in the manga better than the brunette Richie in the anime.
So between you and Arti I guess it's safe to say that Gentlemen prefer blondes. :p

Yay, more Party Monster. Todd works as Angel. That takes care of the whole snapshipping thing.
LOL! Yeah, Ash just needs to stay clear of some of his friends. He lets Todd take pictures of him without getting the cash up front, he lets Tracy draw whatever Tracy draws, he let Nikolai the Knickerbocker get him to dabble in FURRIES for Pete's sakes. I know Ash prides himself on befriending the quirky.


And good work with the pics and commentary GAR. You add a little something special to the pics

I have to agree. I think, of any recent pokemon anime happenings, Destiny Deoxys has some of the most slashy Ash scenes. There was something between whatshisname...Troy, the kid with the light purple hair. Ash touches him affectionately so many times, and Ash almost never touches anyone. Plus, since Troy?? was played by Tara Jayne in the English version, there can be an argument made that Ash might have been attracted to him because he reminds him of Richie. But that is a major stretch because it only works in the English version. Oh well, still slashy.

That's awesome! They ARE all cute and dammit, they ALL compliment each other! Well...the way I see it is, Gary represent the darker side of Ash and his Pokemon training, Richie represents the lighter side of Ash and his Pokemon training. And I think that, in time, Richie and Gary could mellow each other out...so in the end they'd be more compatable with Ash than before. :) Also, three heads are better than two...

:p Just you wait and see. Ten years from now when Nintendo of Japan is inexplicably broke and cashing in on unsold avenues, you'll totally see 3Shi starring a much older (and even hotter) Ash, Gary, and Richie. I am so convinced the show (and movies) are getting gayer as Ash grows older...is that a word?

I mean, the fact that Ash thinks Pokemon Contests are awesome is so beyond gay as it is...

I have to agree.
Yeah, Shane was cool and kinda cute but...I really hope they don't bring him back and the Pokemon Ringer thang is a one off deal, cuz we don't need RingerShipping mucking up the 3Shi! ;) Or maybe Ash has guys on the side too.

It works for me!! Does that imply Gary and Richie met? Is that asking too much?
Well, the League episodes are, historically, the slashiest. So, I am really hoping Richie and Gary show up to cheer Ash on...he is far away, though. Still, revolving-door Tracey did clue both guys in on where Ash is, so...

MouseShipping
SatoHiroShipping
YaoiShipping

I like YaoiShipper the best because it implies that the Ash and Richie pairing is the best pairing for the genre of Yaoi. YAY!


Richie represents the lighter side of Ash and his Pokemon training. And I think that, in time, Richie and Gary could mellow each other out...so in the end they'd be more compatable with Ash than before. Also, three heads are better than two...
Woah, I forget sometimes that I'm the only person that recognizes Richie's DARK side. Those “accessories” of Richie’s in my fic are not just for shock value, LOL. Your last statement, I totally agree with. There would be, of course, so battle for power with Richie and Gary as Ash would cower in the corner. I wonder who would win dominance. Again, I’ll go to the manga. Who wins Gary or Richie? RICHIE :)

I know. How serendipitous. Three of the most diehard league/3Shi shippers, all coming here, and all English majors :) Do you guys have concentrations? I’m an American Lit major. I used to be a Brit Lit major, but then I had to switch because in my ‘contemporary’ poetry class, I had to give a few Ted Hughes fans a major Plath Attack. I've decided become a Plath ‘scholar’ (lol) so it made no sense to stay on the Brit track


Troy was a cutie, wasn't he? I could see what Ash saw in him. And Arti makes an excellent point, Ash doesn't get touchy/feely with anybody too often (Well, I can think of two other guys in particular that carry that honor, lol)
OOOOOOO, OOOOOOO, you're talking about Brock and Max, aren't you? JK, RICHIE AND GARY of course. How many time did Ash put his hand on Troy's back, or put his arm around him when he was 'hurt'.


And yeah, I smirked at the LS hint also...hehehe, did Tara Jayne voice Shane? Kinda sounded like Richie...
Um, don't think so, but not sure.


An older Richie and Ash, playing soccer.
XD, I'm working on a fic about an older Ash and Richie!!!


I love the pic, I'm hoping Max is trying to break them apart ala Brock.
AWWWW, Max is such a cutie in the pic. Why do I get the feeling that in five years, we're going to have like 6 threads about Max's many gay relationships. Richie (omg, I meant to type right, but now I don't have the heart to change it) now, it's just him and Brock <3


Is this Richie? He has a Pikachu...
I don't think so. I think that is one of the guys from a manga.


Richie is diligently researching the Kama Sutra. LOL
I know what he must be thinking. Hmmm, which position gives me the most leverage?


For Arti, here's proof of Richie going OOC domineering, and grabbing Oliver's hand and angrily forcing him to get away. It was quite a revealing aspect for his character.
“I told you Oliver, I’d do that thing with you’re Lanturn later” *Arti alludes to his fic*

Mouseshipping is cute but when they get older it would totally not sit well. SatoHiroShipping is fine and a cute play on words. Yaoishipping...lol, I've never heard that one. What's the history behind it? I definately like the last two.


Woah, I forget sometimes that I'm the only person that recognizes Richie's DARK side. Those “accessories” of Richie’s in my fic are not just for shock value, LOL.
I recognize Richie's dark side, it totally plays into my opposites of the 3Shi! While Gary is a snarky bi!ch by day, he's really sweet and passive during the nighttime. Richie is happy and nice during the day, but when day break comes...hehehe

And if you think about it, that fanart of Richie dressing up as Bakura is quite telling of how others perceive Richie...sweet and innocent by day, but prefers the darkness and pain of the night.

LOL, yeah I guess Richie puts Gary in his place, doesn't he. :p


I know. How serendipitous. Three of the most diehard league/3Shi shippers, all coming here, and all English majors :)
It's because we know how to work it and work it right! Er..I mean write...write it right! :p

Do you guys have concentrations? I’m an American Lit major. I used to be a Brit Lit major, but then I had to switch because in my ‘contemporary’ poetry class, I had to give a few Ted Hughes fans a major Plath Attack. I've decided become a Plath ‘scholar’ (lol) so it made no sense to stay on the Brit track
My emphasis is on Creative Writing. Originally my concentration was Literature, but I really didn't need to go that route. Honestly the first three semesters I took a lot of classes I really didn't need to, and now I'm lagging a bit behind because of it. Blah.


How many time did Ash put his hand on Troy's back, or put his arm around him when he was 'hurt'. Yeah, it almost reminded me of a generic Pokeshipping fic where Ash stumbles and Misty suddenly gets maternal and realizes her true feelings for Ash all within a moment.


XD, I'm working on a fic about an older Ash and Richie!!!

AWWWW, Max is such a cutie in the pic. Why do I get the feeling that in five years, we're going to have like 6 threads about Max's many gay relationships. Richie (omg, I meant to type right, but now I don't have the heart to change it) now, it's just him and Brock <3
Y'know...I've never really given much thought to Max being gay...but he DID have that little 'rivalry' going with MINI-GARY in the Roxanne episode!


“I told you Oliver, I’d do that thing with you’re Lanturn later” *Arti alludes to his fic*
Your fic never ceased to amaze me. LOL!


That statement just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy and EXCLUDED. Aren't there any psychology-students around here? Freudians don't count.
Well, if it makes you feel any better you certainly add to the all-around homoeroticism of this thread so cheer up! :)

I swear, there is some crazy s*it going on in the League Episodes. XD They are, officially, the best place to pick up homosexual guys. :0 I mean, we had Mandy and Richie in the Kanto League. (Complete with Ash x Richie fluff. :3) We had Drake in the Orange League. (He has feminine speech patterns in the Japanese version! :0)

And then lots of yummy Ash x Gary stuff in Johto... not sure about ol' Harrison though. And then... omg. Masamune. He loves teh Ash. He's like 'omg I have to battle Ash *cry*' and stuff~ Tetsuya doesn't give a damn though. :x

*wonders when Richie is going to appear again* o_o

Mouseshipping is cute but when they get older it would totally not sit well. SatoHiroShipping is fine and a cute play on words. Yaoishipping...lol, I've never heard that one. What's the history behind it? I definately like the last two.
Yeah. MouseShipping is almost too cute for me. Maybe if Richie and Ash met when they were 5, but not now.


I recognize Richie's dark side, it totally plays into my opposites of the 3Shi! While Gary is a snarky bi!ch by day, he's really sweet and passive during the nighttime. Richie is happy and nice during the day, but when day break comes...hehehe

And if you think about it, that fanart of Richie dressing up as Bakura is quite telling of how others perceive Richie...sweet and innocent by day, but prefers the darkness and pain of the night.
Ok, I like how you see things.


LOL, yeah I guess Richie puts Gary in his place, doesn't he.
XD, he sure does. RICHIE SPANKS GARY.

You know it is true Alfonso. It is every little sista's dream to win something pretty and shiny at the pokemon league, and to meet some other cute trainers.

YAY, LeagueShipping is in the face off. If we take down PS and then AS in the first rounds, all the other ships will fall!!


I have a topic of discussion.

Which alternative LeagueShipping name is the best?

MouseShipping
SatoHiroShipping
YaoiShipping

I like YaoiShipper the best because it implies that the Ash and Richie pairing is the best pairing for the genre of Yaoi. YAY!
I like YaoiShipping for much of the same reason. I've hear of the 1st and the 3rd, but not the second ship name for LS. Well, the 2nd works too.

Agreed! Gary matured so much by that time. The ONE time he does jab at Ash, Ash totally deserved it for allowing his Pokemon to almost get him disqualified. It's beyond cute...

http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y188/GaryAshRichie/GaryFlirtsAgain.jpg

not sure about ol' Harrison though.
What??!? Harrison TOTALLY got laid!

Honestly, I'd say Harrison was turned on by Ash...
http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y188/GaryAshRichie/LockerChat.jpg
http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y188/GaryAshRichie/Slash.jpg
And Ash certainly felt sorry for Harrison when he lost...
http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y188/GaryAshRichie/HarrisonLost.jpg
And even went to console him after he lost...
http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y188/GaryAshRichie/AshConsolesHarrison.jpg
http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y188/GaryAshRichie/HarrisonFeelsBetter.jpg
But, that ship sunk when the hot and trendy GARY OAK swept into Harrison's life and left him completely mesmerized! The snarky wit! The hair! The unique fashion!
http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y188/GaryAshRichie/GaryShocksHarrison.jpg (Ash is so cute!)
Harrison even gets info from Ash about him...
http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y188/GaryAshRichie/Chemistry.jpg
Harrison was also completely taken back by Gary's total flip-flop behavior when he helped them save the Misdrevous and announced he was going to become a Pokemon Researcher. In fact, he looks like he's in love...
http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y188/GaryAshRichie/AshHarrisonCheckOutGary.jpg
And sure enough, Ash and his friends just happon to come across the hotly dressed new playpals, GARY AND HARRISON. And yeah, there's awkwardness between Ash and Gary for a second there...probably because Gary already said goodbye to him twice and didn't expect Ash to catch him with a guy on the side...
http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y188/GaryAshRichie/TravelBuddies.jpg
Harrison and Gary travel together...HOT!

That was a good moment. Arg, and Richie was off going candle shoping with Oliver at the time.

Oh GAR, no Richie pics in the bunch. Tisk tisk. LOL, JK

http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y188/GaryAshRichie/AngryStylinRichie.jpgAt least Richie gets clean clothes and stylish new accessories. I just <3 his INDIGO colored backpack. All Gary got was a dumb lab jacket to go over his clothes. :(
http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y188/GaryAshRichie/SeaMen.jpgYeah, yeah, there was simply no room for Ash to sit by his one true love Misty so he had to make due on the opposite side of the boat with Richie so they could do whatever it is they do on boats.
http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y188/GaryAshRichie/FurtherProof.jpgWell, Richie isn't doing a ball-squeeze in this pic, but Ash's jacket lifts and there's no denying it...Richie has his hand somewhere shocking! :o

Word. Although us 'straight' people like to call it 'heterosexual'. And my biology teacher said it's perfectly acceptable and that in fact, many people fantasize about making love to the opposite sexe. It's just the way I am, and you're going to have to accept that. :p JK

Ok, 'Heterosexual' as you call it. I dunno, I just can't accept that lifestyle. It is just sick and wrong. LOL (just kidding of course)

You people sure are funny! I really love the thread, because I've always been a fan of Leagueshipping and I never knew it was so popular. I've got this strange feeling that I'm not really going to fit in though.. I feel kinda bad for not really liking Shi3 or Palletshipping.. If that makes any sense. * sighs* Maybe it's because I'm not so fond of the idea of Gary being in love with Ash. Please don't hate me guys. ^_^U

^Awwwww, don't be frightened away. We like all sorts here. You don't have to be a 3shi or a pallet shipper to have fun in this thread. I like the Richie pairings better myself. There is even a pokeshipper among us. Here, here's a rivalshipping pic.

Well, leagueshipping isn't exactly 'popular', but we do have a nice little cult following here. This is the only forum that I have posted in in which LS really took.


I've got this strange feeling that I'm not really going to fit in though
Well, I'm the granddaddy leagueshipper in these parts. THAT IS FOR ME TO DECIDE.

Well, you like RivalShipping, you like LeagueShipping, that is enough for me. *snaps three times, spits on the computer screen* you are offically accepted in mhere.
