The old thread lived a long and fulfilling life, but is sadly no longer with us, so: welcome, my friends, to the wonderful world of Pokemon x Pokemon shippings~! With so many different Pokemon, potential combinations, dynamics and scenarios - the possibilities for PxP shipping are virtually unlimited, something that has always made it one of my personal favourite sub-genres of shipping. Games, anime, manga, whatever you desire: anything goes here, so long as it's between two (or more!) Pokemon ^_^
- follow the usual SPPf rules.
- this should be obvious, but: no bashing of any kind. Disliking a particular pairing or Pokemon is fine, being a jerk about it isn't.
- to keep discussion interesting, please try to avoid posting lists of shippings with no elaboration! If you support a ship, please try and say a little bit - just a sentence or two is fine - about why you like it.
- Have fun!!! (^▽^)
To get things started:
What are your favourite Pokemon x Pokemon shippings?
I'll go first~ (I seriously have SO MANY of these it's kinda insane, but I'll try to stick to top five ^^; )
MarvelWhiskershipping ((Whiscash x Milotic))
PxP OTP 5ever~ n__n I guess it started with them being my Hoenn favourites, and I just grew to love the idea of it - an odd couple kind of thing, with Whiscash being kind of weird and derpy but crushing on Milotic who's all gorgeous and classy, and not thinking he stands a chance but the two of them just kind of...completing each other, in a weird way. Idk, it makes sense in my mind and I shall always love this ship <33
Pi3shipping ((Pikachu x Jigglypuff x Clefairy))
I couldn't pick a favourite combination of this so gotta be OT3~ it's just freakin' adorable, is why. Blame that episode where they build a rocket, but I definitely see Jigglypuff/Clefairy both being divas and bickering a lot, and Pikachu tries (but mostly fails) to be the voice of reason...But they're bffs (cause Mt. Moon, and Pikachu lives in Viridian Forest which is kinda near...?) and always make up eventually. And then they snuggle up together~ :3
Nightlightshipping ((Espeon x Umbreon))
tbh I could fill this list with just Eeveelutions pairings, but this one is a classic~ opposites attract again, and I may be influenced by all the pretty fanart, but they just look so right together, sun and moon, light and dark - there's a lot of potential and different dynamics to play around with. Also, pretty sure this is canon in the latest Mystery Dungeon games, which is awesome.
Krazyshipping ((Pikachu x Meowth))
Anime-specific, with Ash's Pikachu/Team Rocket's Meowth - yeah, you can pretty much blame the episode where they're tied together for this. So much potential for angst and conflict, and yet so adorable! (I like my opposite/rival pairings, sue me...) They're on opposite sides, but they work so well together when they have to, and I like to think there's some kind of ~connection and grudging mutual respect there.
Guildshipping ((Wigglytuff x Chatot))
And a games one, in Pokemon Mystery Dungeon 2 with the Guildmaster and his right-hand man/bird. They're just too cute, the way Chatot worries over Wigglytuff and Wigglytuff is generally happily oblivious but also a BAMF, and Chatot's the only one who can calm him down when he gets mad. Aaaaah~ <3
