    I think I'll get this party started then.

    • I used to participate in the shipping wars on YouTube, which is something I'm not proud of now.
    • I literally cannot understand why people actually support Ikarishipping? No offense to anyone who does support it but, in my opinion, this is one of the worst ships there are.
    • I used to hate Pokeshipping, due to the immature Pokeshippers on YouTube. They were the worst.
    • MangaPokeshipping is seriously my most despised shipping, ever! I don't see it between them. Misty needs to just back off, Specialshipping all the way.

    I love doing these:

    * I used to hate Pokeshipping to the fullest and even got into debates when I mainly supported Pearlshipping. Now I support it just as much as any Ash shipping
    * I felt like Ikarishipping was the Twilight verison of Pokemon shipping. I always wonder why people love it so much.
    *I used to read a Ikarishipping fanfic and review it saying Pearlshipping was better when I started out in the shipping fandom.
    *I used to hate NaruSaku in the past but now I support it to this day.
    *It bother me wondering why people support Yaoi pairings.

    Forgive me for this but yes, I have a few things to confess myself:

    • I used to hate Pokeshipping and Pokeshippers with every fiber of my being back when I only supported Pearlshipping, which is weird because I do support Pokeshipping now, it's not OTP stanadard by any means though.
    • I still hate Pokeshippers with a burning passion and I will not lie about that.
    • I used to participate in debates, which is something I am, most definitely not proud of today.
    • I still, to this day, do not understand the appeal of Ikarishipping and why it has supporters.
    • I don't hate pairings usually but I absolutely despise Penguinshipping. Kenny and Dawn just don't do it for me and I seriously think Kenny needs to hit puberty already
    • I have no idea why but it bothers me so much when I see Pokeshippers say they have to support MangaPokeshipping because of Pokeshipping, even though they clearly have not read the manga.
    • I have a severe hatred for MangaPokeshipping and I basically judge anyone that supports it Specialshipping all the way!

    -Don't really care for Pokeshipping that much, just mostly neutral for it.
    - Never understood & still don't understand the appeal and/or popularity of BurningLeafShipping & Ikarishipping.
    - I dislike Gymshipping & Rocketshipping (anime version. Haven't even got to them in the manga & probably won't anytime soon).
    - I usually don't care for protag x protag ships. The only ones I like are HoennShipping & KalosShipping a bit.
    - For het ships with Ash, I prefer him with side characters (Angie & Anabel) than the girls he traveled with.
    -I just can't get into AmourShipping atm. I kinda do wanna like it, since it kinda reminds me of NaruHina, but I just can't.

    -While I don't really participate in debates as to which shipping is better, I can't help but see the negatives first before moving on to what makes them great to me. I do adore Franticshipping and SoulSilvershipping, however.

    -I mainly support in-game ships. Not really Anime. I feel that Ash is <strike>asexual</strike> not really meant to be with anybody. Like a lot of the other male protagonists this gen... *sigh* For example:

    -Pokeshipping, I have mixed feelings about. Sure, it's clear Misty likes Ash, but I feel that she treats him badly enough for me to not really support it.

    -Amourshipping... ehh... it's in the beginning of the series right now, so i feel there's time for Serena to develop other than the 'girl who has a puppy-love crush' to follow the protagonist. But right now, it's not really working for me. The relationship is waaaay too one-sided.

    -Ikarishipping? I never understand why fangirls insist 'they hate each other, (okay, so they're not really hating each other but I feel Paul isn't exactly fond of her), so they must be in love.' NO.

    Yes! A thread to let all the negativity out of me! Here we go (no offence BTW):

    -I don't really hate Pokeshipping. What I hate about it is, Kasumi is much older than Satoshi. That kinda breaks my 'not going to date someone older' rule.
    -I just... @%$* Contestshipping. I'm an Advanceshipper myself, but when I realized Haruka has a canon crush on Shu, I thought my life was over. Nonetheless, I do think they look cute together, but still... I'm an Advanceshipper man!
    -Pearlshipping. They do look cute together, but I can't help but think they're just good friends with all those high-fives. I'll change my mind if it is instead hugs.
    -Ikarishipping came to my mind after the DP series. I kinda despise it before, but now I'm warming up to it, since they're the opposite of one another, there is a posibility that they will be attracted to each other, like magnets.
    -Negaishipping.... no comment

    I'll give you a hint: I'm the one in the farthest left

    Eh let me do mine (only very few xd)
    - I used to say that Naruto was a kids show without watching then I feel defeated after watching even just one episode
    - I don't find myself shipping pokemon characters in the past , but knowing that is fun to do so is what makes me to ride with it
    - I never seem to like Gary & Paul in the past and it probably it has to do with our same personality
    - I used to support Yuri pairings a lot, even from this day on because I find two girls cute when tag or paired with one another
    Fun facts: To those who are curious, Serena has been made as the shipper's favouritism - currently she has the most shipping pairs involving hers ( a total of 815 as of the august submission) behind her is Dawn ( with a total of 696)

    TRIVIA: Every month there is approximately 1000 new submissions on the shipping thread, and this will probably continue until all names have been used. Come generation 7 I'm pretty sure we are going to run out of names

    They're the same

    - I really hate to see many people saying that ContestShipping is canon, really, because it isn't
    - I can't understand why everyone loves OldrivalShipping, it's so hintless that hurts
    - I used to hate PokéShipping, but now is one of my OTPs
    - I don't like when people say that AgencyShipping and ChessShipping are the same thing, because it isn't
    - AdvanceShipping is my childhood OTP and i still love it
    - NaruHina is my anime OTP, nothing will change that <3

    -I confess that I am not actually a "shipper" however I enjoy reading and discussing Pokeshipping as it is undeniably something that was introduced and built upon in the actual show. I love discussing character and plots and the relationship between Misty and Ash was so fantastic!

    -I confess I enjoy poking fun at Advanced Shippers because their "hints" from the show are such desperate attempts at forming a relationship between May and Ash where one does not exist. If anything, May and Brock were hinted at more by the show.

    -I confess that the shipping between Prof. Oak and Ash's Mom is my absolute favorite ship, and it's a very sexual ship as well.

    -I confess that I only look into ships that I find relevant to things introduced in the show, so when I don't see an ACTUAL relationship forming between two characters I don't know anything about their "ship"

    -I confess that May's dad and Nurse Joy is my second favorite ship!

    -I confess that I believe anyone who bothers doubting Pokeshipping is obviously hurt that Pokeshipping had more evidence that their personal favorite ship and NEED to start looking at things with an open mind.

    -I confess that I truly never mean to troll or invade other discussions that conflict or go against my own opinions. Like I said, I live discussions the shows and characters, however I express my love for the character Misty quite openly and others judge my opinions on my love for Misty and therefore believe I can only be a Pokeshipper and have no say in other ships.

    I confess I one time shipped a package to the wrong address.

    Someone once told me that Misty's cameos in Advanced Generation help make it easier knowing that she is no longer a series regular. They couldn't have been more wrong. After she leaves behind Togepi she returns to her gym more alone than ever AND ON TOP OF THAT, her last cameo was in 2005. 2005!?!?!? ITS BEEN TEN YEARS SINCE ONE OF THE CAST WHO STARTED THE SHOW WAS ACTUALLY ON THE SHOW!?!?

    Why do we even watch Pokemon anymore

    Here's my confessions:

    • Even though I support AmourShipping, I don't think it'll ever be fully canon. I just think that it's a fun pairing and I don't take it too seriously.
    • I used to be a PearlShipper, but these days I don't see the appeal in it anymore. It seems like a strange ship to me, personally.
    • Even though I'm a part-time PokeShipper, there was a phase that I went through in AG where I was against the ship.
    • IkariShipping seems like the most random ship to me given Paul and Dawn's limited interactions. I can't get into it at all despite trying once.

    -I don't really ship anyone seriously, I just do it for fun and I do it for the character interactions.
    -I found it fun to start and contribute to shipping wars lol.
    -I don't care much for Pokeshipping even though I support it.
    -I like riling up Pokeshippers because they easily get mad.

    - I don't ship things super seriously and fanatically.
    - I'm not invested into non Ash X Main Girl ships.
    - I don't care about PokeShipping despite supporting it.
    - I find it funny to rile up PokeShippers since they're so easy to get mad, plus they hate on my shippings and think they're immune to hate.
    - Brock X Flying Fan is funny.
    - I hate PokeShippers who say "oh if you hate on our ship you're just desperate that your ship is stupid" but say "I like to rile up non-PokeShippers because my ship is better than yours' and I'm a total jerk". They just seem so full of themselves!

    Yes, your eyes do not deceive you, I am actually posting here. I do have some things to get off my chest.

    • I absolutely despise some Pokeshippers. They can be really hotheaded and immature.
    • I can't stand seeing people say that MangaPokeshipping and Pokeshipping are the same because they aren't. The manga is completely different from the anime and Red and Ash are not the same person.
    • I cannot, for the life of me, see the appeal in Advanceshipping. It has no hints whatsoever.
    • While it's true that I do support Pokeshipping, I always thought Ash and Misty had more of a brother/sister bond then a romantic one.
    • Negaishipping is, by far, my least favorite ship. I just thought it was like Pokeshipping 2.0, given how Iris always used to call Ash a child.
    • Amourshipping is one of my favorite ships but I seriously despise Amourshippers, some of them are worse then Pokeshippers.

    I never really shared my opinions about shipping,so here it goes.
    -Even though I ship ,I can't seriously ship because of the fact characters, are well... fictional.
    -Pokeshipping and Negaishipping don't make sense to me because I don't see the appeal of shipping characters who argue.
    -Ikarishipping doesn't appeal to me because of the lack of interaction and the fact Paul is near unshippable to me.
    -Pearlshipping and advanceshipping seem more like strong friendships than actual shippings. I do like May and Dawn as characters though.
    -I Contestship even though I think Drew is a total pushover.
    -I wince everytime I ship something that has to do with Ash because the chances of coming even near canon are 0.01%.
    Wow, I feel good for getting that off my chest because nobody I know ships Pokemon.

    1) I used to believe you had to ship all the canon ships.
    2) My two favorite types of ships are yaoi and Pokemon x Pokemon, and I especially love ships that meet both qualifications like Krazy (Ash's Pikachu and TR Meowth) and Kyoudai (Iris' Axew and Ash's Scraggy).
    3) I feel like CommonerShipping will collapse soon under the popularity of HaughtyShipping.
    4) Most of my shipping with a human involve Ash. Funnily enough most of my Pokemon x Pokemon ships involve Pikachu.
    5) GymShipping was my first Pokémon OTP and I don't get why it's overlooked. And people say the age difference is too big, but they go and support ElderShipping with no problem! Come on, Misty is 10-12 and Brock is a teenager! Plus we've had some pretty good hints over the years, and no, not all of them are ear pulling.
    6) I used to hate PokéShipping with a passion, now it's alright despite being one of my biggest rival ships to so many of my OTPs.
    7) NegaiShipping is severly underrated and it's not a PokéShipping clone just because of Iris' character, every Ash ship is unique in its own way.
    8) You don't want to see a list of all my OTPs unless you're prepared for boredom because that list is too long.
    9) I hate when ContestShippers just pick on AdvanceShipping and act like we don't know what Contest even is. I'm not saying all ContestShippers are like that (one of my fellow RPers from the PokéAni RP ships it and is one of the nicest people I've met), but they don't understand we don't have a reason to be picked on just for shipping a rival ship.
    10) I can't stand when ships like FranticShipping, CommonerShipping, AgencyShipping, and BurningLeaf are mistaken for their counterpart shippings.

    Pokemon confessions:

    - I confess that I've always been a Pokeshipper since I was 10 years old.
    - I confess that I'm a shipping addict and I get too emotionally attached to my OTP
    - I confess that I don't see the appeal in any other Ash shipping cause I find them too OOC and weird for my taste.
    - I confess that I liked ContestShipping, but I don't care about it now
    - i confess that I never liked any Dawn ships.
    - I confess that I do get annoyed when people support a ship that has no chemistry/development.

    Non-Pokemon confessions:

    - I confess that I used to ship NaruHina to the point where I was obsessed by it. That's because I was an anime watcher only. I blame fillers.
    - I confess that I tried to like SasuSaku but failed. Terrible ship.
    - I confess that I spent a while deciding what's my favourite Naruto pairing.
    - I confess that when I reread the manga, I've experienced many beautiful things which got me into supporting NaruSaku. Their hints are so beautifully developed.
    - I confess that I believe NaruSaku had more evidence/chemistry/development than any other ship, and anyone who's doubting it is hurt. :P
    - I confess that I ship SasuKarin, Edwin, NaLu, IchiRuki, LuNa as well.

    I've...bashed Pokeshipping before. :| Back when I was a seriously hardcore Advanceshipper. I would always bash Pokeshipping because I felt I was in the minority...I did it to make myself feel better haha.

    I am ashamed.

    • When I started to seriously ship in Pokemon, I told myself I'd only really support like 2-3 ships to save my sanity... I now need to keep a list to know which ships I am currently shipping. xD
    • From what I ship, I gues I'm mostly a nevermet/cross-gen shipper.
    • Jasmine has become my female shipping bicycle before I knew it. I don't think I have a consistent male shipping bicycle, but it's either Morty or Volkner. xD
    • I multiship characters the most in the Pokemon fandom than I do in any other fandom I am active in.
    • To go with the previous point, I also ship more threesomes/moresomes in the Pokemon fandom than I do in my other fandoms.
    • It bothers me so much when people don't use the right ship name for the right counterpart. It's LeafGreenShipping for Gary/Leaf, people, not OldRivalShipping.
    • I become a sad panda when I really adore a ship, but the official ship name for it isn't my cup of tea... I like to be consistent, so if I tag with ship names, I want to continue tagging with ship names.
    • Rarely, if the ship name bothers me that much, I will be too embarrassed to say I ship it. Sometimes the name will even cause me to abandon ship (which I am ashamed of).
    • If I have no opinion on a ship, but see/read really awesome fanart/fanfic on said ship, I will be influenced into liking that ship.
    • I am guilty of sometimes shippings characters based on appearance...and then make up headcanon for them down the line.
    • I have multiple headcanon/alternate universes for how characters meet/fall in love/breakup/etc.
    • I get emotionally attached to my favorite ships, which I feel might be a bad thing.

    *It annoys me when people bash fans of ships. I have NOTPs, but I would never bash the fans.
    *Similarly, while I have no issue with people having NOTPs, it annoys me when people never stop complaining about their existence, especially if they aren't canon.
    *I don't like shipping wars.
    *I find a lot of rabid anti-certain-ships worse than the rabid fans of said ship.
    *I actually love Ferriswheelshipping.*pelted by tomatoes*
    *I don't mind- and sometimes even like- age gap pairings as long as the younger party is 18+ (or ambiguously aged in canon so you can say that if you wish).
    *My first ship was actually probably Ash x Ritchie. Also, I thought Ritchie was a girl for some reason. I still kind of like it, actually.
    *It bugs me when people bash a ship for being popular. Give more attention to your obscure ships to get them to be popular, too. Also, as a fan of some weirder ships, it sort of makes me feel bad for said ships because then it looks like people only support them because they aren't popular instead of on the ships' merits.
    *I don't hate slash, but for some reason, I have a much easier time getting interested in femslash pairings than slash... And I'm female. Usually I see the opposite.
    *I am so thankful the Kalos games' shipping wars aren't as rabid as the Unova ones. They were so bad I actually had to step away from the shipping fandom for a while.
    *I usually prefer the Lyra version of a ship to the Kris one, but for some reason, Red is the exception. I like both girls and their ships, that's just how I usually feel.
    *I still don't have a Serena game OTP. DetectiveDuo is close, but we need more Looker in the inevitable third game.
    *My OTPs tend to change a lot, but I think my current OTP (which even changed a day or two after I mentioned my last one) is male Morgan x Cynthia from Fire Emblem:Awakening. In terms of Pokémon, there isn't any I'm really fangirling over right now, but I have a feeling something will happen with OR/AS. My favorite two are Flag and NewRival (which is funny since I was a Hoennshipper in the original games).
    *It annoys me in fandoms where you choose between a male and female character when someone who supports a ship with one bashes the opposite gender version of the same ship as rabidly as possible. I'm not saying you have to like both (there are plenty where I love one but am meh towards the other), but it's just kind of obnoxious, especially when the words "fangirl" or "self-insertion" are thrown around as an insult at the other party. It's especially infuriating when both characters have basically the same dialogue and story no matter who you choose.

    I'm sure I'll have more, but that's the gist of it.

    Not a huge shipper, but might as well do something...

    - I only got into Shipping after getting into Persona 4 (Where my main ships are actually Chie/Yukiko and a split between Rise/MC and actually Yosuke/MC. I tried liking Kanji/Naoto, and totally understand why others like it, but can't personally picture Naoto liking Kanji romantically.) and still barely care for shipping in the Pokémon fandom.
    - For a while before I got more into shipping, I only really cared about canon ships even if I don't like the relationship anymore.
    - For some reason, I just have a hard time understanding more odd relationships (I will never understand IkariShipping because Dawn/Paul just strikes me as a relationship that would quickly devolve into verbal abuse and breaking up. In the same way) and why people would ever ship them (No offense to IkariShippers, but to continue the example I'll use that again. In the show they have nothing resembling a good relationship, what with Paul being a selfish jerk who never got along with any of the main cast).
    - A bit of an addendum to the above, but I never understood the justification of 'Opposites attract'. They may attract, OR they could disagree on everything, degenerate into constant bickering, and either break up or potentially even erupt into an abusive relationship.
    - I read fics for ships I have no interest in just to see if they're well-written.

    Wow, never knew that this actually happened around here. Well, I guess it'd be fun, so let's start!

    !. I used to like Pokéshipping once. Even now that I like Amourshipping, I still think that it was pretty obvious (well, at least in the dub).

    2. WTF is up with Ikarishipping? For me, it's like shipping Nurse Joy with Ash, or Brock with Angie. Just because they've interacted with each other a few times and it wasn't exactly 'peaceful' does't mean they're soulmates, it just means that Paul's an a**hole.

    3. Penguinshipping's okay, butI kinda don't like Kenny all that much. Which means that's 2 major Dawn shippings down. Since I think the other ones don't make much sense either and I ship Ash with Serena...well, she's one of the two main characters I consider completely un-shippable.Well, unless Serena's not in the picture. In that case, Pearlshipping isn't so bad.

    4. Speaking of the other main character, I just don't see either Negaishipping or Wishfulshipping. Iris was just...let's stop before I start another hate-fueled rant.

    5. I think Brock is doomed to remain single.
