    I'm in the same boat as you! I mean I think they have feelings but I don't think they are "in love" with each other. Maybe at the end of the show. But it's not like they are a lovey-dovey couple just yet.

    Hey, may I join? I love RocketShipping.

    I'm in the same boat as you! I mean I think they have feelings but I don't think they are "in love" with each other. Maybe at the end of the show. But it's not like they are a lovey-dovey couple just yet.
    Yeah. I don't think they've even admitted their feelings to themselves yet.

    Do you hope we get one last RocketShipping hint before DP ends?
    Definitely, even something as small as a blush would be great.

    Jessie and James, not in love? I think too much time has passed and too many events have occured during the anime, to the point where if they aren't in love then they must be totally blind. I would have agreed with your assessment were the anime still in the early stages (Kanto-Johto) but it's been going on for 13 years and they must feel some form of romantic love for each other underneath it all. I wouldn't believe both could be either so oblivious to each other or so hard-headed that they wouldn't give in to their feelings

    Well I think they love each other as friends, (DP117 proved that) but I don't think there's anything more to it than that right now.

    Not really...I mean, it would be nice for there to be a hint but I'm not expecting one. Quite honestly the hint in DP 117 was more than I could hope for and I'm very happy with it, it's probably my favorite Rocketshipping hint of all time.

    You really think so? I don't know, 13 years is a long time for two people to be that oblivious to each other. I think Jessie and James make a great pair of lovers. They aren't "normal" by some standards but I think they have things about them that complement the other. Jessie is strong and fierce while James is calm and collected most of the time. I think it balances them out on the show. The thing they have in common is Meowth, Pikachu, and fashion taste so at least nobody can say they're extreme opposites

    I'm glad they aren't complete opposites. They have common ground and they complement each other. It makes them seem normal. I'm not going to say they complete each other but they definitely work well and I can see them becoming romantic in the future, whether it's soon or way off into the future when the series ends.

    Not the exact same people, no. I mainly mean the older fans too... besides, you can't argue that the nature of the discussions is at all similar.

    It's sad when a topic there is far less mature than one here, of all places.

    Anyway, this topic's about KojiMusa, so let's stick to the pairing!

    So, here's a piece of fanart by Tomo. I really miss her... whatever happened to her?

    Its only been 13 years to us, not to them. And I wouldn't say they're oblivious to each other. It's not like they'd deny that they care about each other.

    You're right. The thread on Bulbagarden is actually in depth and realistic.

    Which has never happened. The quality of discussion here is extremely poor, which is why this thread keeps dying and all the good posters left.

    The 13 years thing is a bit odd because in the anime it's only a few years... I have a strong feeling that BW will be the last anime with Satoshi and Rocket-dan... At least I hope so myself. Then we can actually witness Rocketshipping's destiny without waiting for another 10 years. ;P If the DP writer crew stays the same for the new anime, we should be safe.

    And I wholeheartedly agree with RG about the forums; I enjoyed my time much more in the Bmgf thread more than the old thread here. But it's nice to have a Rocketshipping thread here again.

    I'm a Rocketshipper because I just think Jessie and James look very cute together. We know they do care for each other. Jessie and James have been best friends long before they even joined Team Rocket. I don't know how deep their affection for each other actually is, but we can dream. That's kind of what shipping is about. We do know that at the end of the manga, they're married and about to have a kid.

    I know the past 13 years of real life time haven't really affected the anime time in the least. I may have made it seem like that though, sorry about the confusion. I do think however, that Jessie or James could be denying their romantic feelings for each other. Especially Jessie who's so hard-headed that nothing ever seems to stick. Or James even, since he seems shy around women in general. Denying something unpleasant seems like a common occurance in real life. And I say "unpleasant" because I'm sure Jessie and James would like to pretend that they don't care about each other and that the thought of loving the other would seem unpleasant to them. They have these large egos afterall.

    They held hands in fear a lot in today's episode (DP 190). Pretty sweet for a Takeshi-centric episode.

    Musashi also shoved Kojiro's head down a couple of times, which he did kinda deserve (putting the lives of people on a ship at stake for a silly bottlecap? xD;; ). Not exactly shippy, I just kind of found it cute.

    Oh, hi. Er, I don't really know what to say. Well, I like to Rocketship, so mind if I join your thread? I lurked in the the old one, and I was going to post before I realised it was dead. DX But I found this one, so ... yay!

    I can't watch the new episodes as soon as they come, but I can look them up on Bulbapedia ... a Takeshi-centered episode with Rocketshipping sounds awesome, anyway! *has a crush on Takeshi*

    Certainly! It's frustrating when that happens, isn't it? But, at least there's a new thread for you to post in now. ^^;

    Most Roketto-dan/Team Rocket fans seem to like Takeshi/Brock. He's the most mature of the kids, that and he can be quite kind to the Rockets. x3

    What do you like about the pairing, Tochukasu? ^^ Were you a fan from the start or did you just recently start liking it?

    ^ Oh, hai! I got into the pairing a few months back, when I started watching Indigo League eps again ... you do the maths XD. I'm actually watching my way through the whole series at the mo, I'm near the end of Johto right now.
    I guess what I like most about RocketShipping is that their relationship is my idea of an ideal relationship. Even though they're totally screwy...X3
    Last episode of DP came out yesterday! Anyone see it?     Spoiler:- DP191:

    Ah, best of luck with finishing it! ^__^ Master Quest has quite a few cute scenes with the Rockets, although there are also some bordering-on-OOC nastiness between the trio of friends.

    ;47; Hai! Found some Rockety screenshots on filb.de:
    http://www.filb.de/anime/eppics/dp/191/page/2
    http://www.filb.de/anime/eppics/dp/191/page/3 <-- HUG! Yahoo!
    http://www.filb.de/anime/eppics/dp/191/page/5
    http://www.filb.de/anime/eppics/dp/191/page/6
    I didn't have time to go through all the pages, but that's what I found. It was nice we had something before the Isshu series begins, even if it wasn't huge. Was there any shippy dialogue?

    Hi! I've been an avid fan of this pairing for years now. Can I join this thread?

    My first question for you is why are you a RocketShipper?

    Well, for starters, I strongly do believe Jessie and James do have feelings for each other. Really, I do.
    They've had a lot of fallouts with each other and they've even split a couple of times and they've always remained a team.
    What else is there to say?

    Hmmm.... Add this to another in the long list of ships I like but I'm not sure if I support. Oh well, I'll at least contribute to the discussion! .

    If anyone's looking for a good, recent episode, I'd definitely recommend DP117 (Noodles! Roamin' Off!). Nice whole episode of them caring for each other. .

    It's kind of disappointing that with their new seriousness in Best Wishes they probably won't blast off as much, and have fearhugs or amusing interactions, but oh well... We'll see..

    Yeah. xD. Especially James. Remember "Arriving in Style"? That was some great interaction. xD.
    Yes I'm a shipper. There's no need to think anything differently of me though.

    Eeee, I'm still not over how gorgeous the last episode of DP is!

    It looks like the structure of Filb's anime screencap pages changed...

    http://www.filb.de/anime/dp/191

    Now they're all on one page! You have to click the little pokeball/monsterball to get more.

    Welcome, ~SkyHigh~! <3 It's always good to have more fans around.

    It's nice to recieve something before BW starts, I must say.

    Don't forget giving Musashi/Jessie a blanket way back in Jouto/Johto, when the girls got switched around!

    There was no fearhug in DP191... not even close.

    I'm very surprised you guys aren't excited about Best Wishes considering how promising it looks for us. Hopefully we'll get something this week on the Hoso's 7th anniversary!

    Welcome to the ship, everyone! New fans are awesome, and it's great that the ship is pulling in people through both the old episodes AND from Best Wishes, which is looking now like it might be a big draw for quite a few new Rocketshippers. *so excited*

    Ha! Me too, that's exactly what I say about their relationship. :D /Rocketshipping brofist

    Oh, but adding to what Musapion mentioned about MQ, here's a word of advice about AG: The show itself was pretty good during that series, lots of great characters and the introduction of Contests -which become pretty important for Jessie, especially in DP- but it's pretty barren as far as shippiness goes. There are a few moments here and there, but overall it's not a great scene for Rocketshippers.

    The good thing is it was really only way back during the first airing that it was tough for shippers, and that was because it wasn't known whether things would ever get better. Looking back from our vantage point here in 2010, it all turned out right in the end. I can safely tell you that DP is quite enjoyable for Rocketshippers, and Jessie and James have a great relationship throughout. That's... not exactly the case in AG. Some parts are not very fun to watch. But the series overall is enjoyable, and you know that the ship is not in the hopeless situation that AG occasionally made it out to be in.

    I wouldn't worry about shark-jumping since the show itself looks like it's on a pretty good track with the new characters and story and all that, but the differences in TR are hard to swallow, for me at least. It's still early on in the game, and there are a lot of directions this could go. I'm willing to bet, though, that whatever direction the series takes we'll still see shippiness throughout. Probably just sprinkled instead of piled on though. Unless they want to give us one huge Rocketshipping blowout episode, just for the heck of it. :P

    ^ Sadly, it will be AGES 'till I can see any B/W eppies - first I have to wait for them to get subbed/dubbed, then I have to wait till they're on Anime Freak or something... but never mind, filb.de and Bulbapedia are practically watching it.

    Imma try to stop being paranoid about Best Wishes. After all, what if this new seriousness leads to moar shippiness? I think maybe the old Musashi and Kojiro were a bit too ... immature/silly/whatever to realise that, 'Gah, I keep hugging them, why do I keep hugging them, oooh, I think I'm in love'. XD OK, so that's a weird way of putting it. But you get my point (I hope!).

    (Er, this is off-topic, but does anyone know how or if you can change your username? Only I just found out it's Tochukaso. It doesn't really matter, but I'm a bit obsessive like that.)
