    Why is Shinji/Jun called ColdCoffeeshipping? Once the kid appeared in the show and showed he's totally gay for Shinji, I wanted to make up a name for it and discovered it already had that... and I just wonder, why cold coffee?

    Someone had accidentally, either on Wikipedia or Bulbapedia, put Cynthia as related to Lance.

    Paul's a cold guy, and Jun is coffee incarnate. ...I can only imagine what sort of names there would have been, had this not come long before we knew Jun was slated to make out hearts explode with hoyay.

    It's funny....I actually thought someone would be making a thread like this soon, and lo and behold, you pull through! =D

    I know of one particular ship name I have never understood: BetelgeuseShipping - Cyrus & Mars. Unless this is some ancient word I have never heard of before, I'll be forever in awe at how that ship was named.

    It likely has something to do with their personalities. Paul is a cold-hearted person, and Jun seems like he has a cup of coffee every 5 minutes, given his hyperactivity, so these words could be easily combined.

    Or, or I could just leave it to the hands of the shipping encyclopedias, such as the one above me. They always seem to have the right answers.

    I heard (again, could be wrong) that it was named so because Jun is hyper, like he's always drinking coffee and Shinji is cold and dark. ;D

    I dunno. I'm probably wrong.

    Betelgeuse is the name of the red star that makes up the shoulder of the Orion constellation. Mars is a red planet, and is red in the sky. Cyrus relates to the sun, which is a star.

    Here's some that that I've heard of, but never understood.


    SenirasuShipping (Volkner x Candace). Sup wit that? It isn't even a real word, lol!

    Also, there's another one... AlexandrianShipping, which I believe is Jasmine and Volkner. I can see the basis for the ship, but not the name.

    The last one I thought of is AlfShipping (Ash x Max). Seriously, ElfShipping sounds almost better... is there a reasoning for it?


    So, anyone wanna help me out? XD

    Tadashi definitely stole the two I was going to ask about, hahah.

    What about Candlestickshipping (Steven x Flannery)? I've read a fic about it once and was wondering about the origin of the name...

    Senirasushipping is one I named; the name of my Luxray in Pearl who had Ice Fang as a move. As Volkner's signature Pokemon is a Luxray and Candice is an Ice-type trainer... yeah. I also wanted to beat some other user who was going through a phase of naming Volkner ships... and naming them horribly. No way were they touching one of my babies. /shifty ninja look

    Alexandrianshipping I'm not sure on. All I know is that IMS named it.

    Alfshipping is because in the dub, Max accidentally called Ash by the name of Alf when first meeting him.

    That was mine (named; I never wrote for it). There's the candle for Flannery, and the candle holder, which makes a candle into a candlestick, for Steven.

    No one answered this one, so I'll answer. I didn't name it, but I'm pretty sure I know the origin. It's from the Lighthouse of Alexandria, I think. It was one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. It either burned down or was destroyed in an earthquake (I can't remember which). It applies because both Olivine and Sunyshore, the cities of Jasmine and Volkner, respectively, have lighthouses. Both gym leaders have also been associated with the lighthouse of their town.

    EDIT: Here's the link to the Wikipedia article on the Lighthouse of Alexandria. It was destroyed in an earthquake, not burned down.

    This is another great thread!
    I've been curious since I've recently come to love this ship.
    Why is Nejiki x Cattleya called CreepUpShipping?
    *No longer around*
    I'll update my shipping list if I feel like it.

    I'm thinking it got its name because...well, Bayleef--before it evolved--liked rubbing up against Ash's leg?

    Of course, I could be wrong. ;D

    Well isn't Ash x Bayleef more commonly referred to as Bodyslamshipping? Because that would make sense with the way Bayleef was always tackling Ash. But Kurai's answer makes sense for Legshipping.

    Probably because Paul uses 4chan to creep on little girls like Mira.
    In all seriousness though, I'm curious as to the real reasoning behind this one as well...

    I know this one =)
    And some more, but Toraphi already explained them

    Basically, because both of them live in a city where there's a lighthouse, it was fitting to use the name of the City where stood the very first colossal lighthouse in history : Alexandria, in Egypt.

    Okay, can somebody explain Ikarishipping and Comashipping to me?

    As of now, my focus is on Safaris with starters (barring Wartortle and Quilladin), but give me your Safari anyway. Chances are I'll find something interesting.

    Can't explain Coma, but Ikari I was a witness of...at least I think I was. XD Ikari was formulated from Dawn's Japanese name (hIKARI) and the fact that another anime character named Shinji's last name was Ikari, I think. At least that's what I remember, could be wrong, though. (said Shinji was from Evangelion...I think? ^^; )

    The name Comashipping came from a specific scene in the Evangelion movie...

    4chanshipping gets its name for a pretty bizarre reason. The person who named it had a dream involving him and fellow 4channers picking on Paul and Mira... not sure exactly HOW the two were teased/used but yeah, it stems from that.

    PixieDustshipping... i'm 75% certain that's down to the namer's imagination of seeing Mira as a Tinkerbell like character sprinkling pixie dust on Lucian. Or something to that effect.

    But I still don't see how the name Ash or Satoshi fits into this.

    Because the guy who named Comashipping could picture Paul doing the same over Ash.

    Evangelion also plays a part in why Evashipping is the name for Paul x Reggie. Being they are brothers and IIRC Shinji from Evangelion also has a brother... *nod* Just thought i'd throw that in there. :B
