I was skimming through bulbapedia and stumbled on some facts that I didn't really share at all (maybe some of you already did) but let's take a lookback on the shippings that kind of represented Pearlshipping XD.
For one, Lagomorphshipping was a first since it showed romance and teamwork between Pikachu and Mimoru. A shipping with Pikachu and Pachirisu was somehow a shipping on bulbapedia and I didn't understand why. Last but not least was bubbleboltshipping which hasen't been posted on bulbapedia and I'm really mad it isn't (PikachuXPochama)
Which pokemon shipping best represented Pearlshipping?
For me it'd have to be bubbleboltshipping because pikachu and pochama really do reflect actions from their trainers and actions of what their trainers should've done (DP191 if you know what I mean ). Also their chemistry and frienship shows a strong bond that'll never be forgotten or broken. It's just flat-out, the pokemon version of pearlshipping IMO.
