    No, I support what I want. I'm a huge PokeShipper and don't support any rival shippings of it, and if any rival shipping would become canon, I'd still remain a PokeShipper.

    However, I mostly do like shippings that are hinted at in the anime. From the seven Pokemon shippings I truly consider myself a supporter of, four (Poke-, Luck-, Handyman- and ContestShipping) are very strongly hinted at in the anime:
    - Ash x Misty
    - Ash's Pikachu x Misty's Togetic
    - Brock x Lucy
    - Tracey x Daisy
    - Drew x May
    - Zoey x Dawn
    - Cilan x Iris

    However, I support these shippings because I genuinely like them, not because four from the seven are hinted at by the writers. Yes, those hints convinced me, but if I'd see the hints and not genuinely like it, I wouldn't support it.

    Only if I like 'em. If Sasuke and Sakura turned out to be canon, I'd be kinda peeved. I don't really care if they're canon or not but it's kinda influential, y'know?

    No, there's canon ships that i didn't support, Like Hikari X Manaka (Nagi no asukara), i think you should ship whatever you want

    I'll support them but only if I really like them. I know a lot of people shipped Franticshipping from the manga and that's a canon ship they confessed but I never really got into it, tbh. But then again, that's just me.

    I'm a Cavaliershipper but even if Gary and Dawn didn't end up with each other, I'd still remain a Cavaliershipper.

    No. I do tend to support canon ships, because I need interaction and chemistry to get into one... and naturally authors tend to put the most interaction and chemistry into the canon ship. Also, it really bums me out when something I ship gets trumped by something else becoming canon; I know the characters aren't real, but the emotional side of my brain will not be convinced that this is true. I'll try to like the canon ship to increase my enjoyment of whatever the work is... but it's not like I feel obligated.

    I usually at least find the canon ship cute. I can't think of one franchise where I loathed a canon ship (though none of my NOTPs have ever really become canon). That said, they aren't always my OTP. I generally ship based on interactions (or headcanon interactions in things like the Pokémon games), which usually involves the canon OTP for obvious reasons but not always. Sometimes I find a character's interactions with a non-canon partner more endearing.

    Did anybody outside of Japan support Matt X Sora? Sometimes the canon pairing sucks.

    Not really, I mean most shippings defy any sort of logic, so I don't really feel the need to constrain myself to ones that are cannon.
    To lack fear is stupidity, to face it is bravery.

    nope. I was a hard shipper of Seddie in iCarly, and Creddie turned out to be canon, but still didn't ship. I also don't ship starfire and robin in teentitans either. I don't ship alot of canon ships

    Hell no, excuse my language. But I don't ever feel like I've got to support only canon shippings. I mean all of my major shippings I support are in Pokémon. And would the writers ever make a ship canon? Nope, so I don't feel like I have to. I only support ships I find cute, interesting, or have good chemistry.

    I used to believe that you HAD to ship canon ships. But back then I was younger, dumber, didn't care much about shipping nor know what it was, and I wasn't in this fandom. (Hey, I was only 5, 6, or 7-ish!)

    I never really cared if ships are canon or not. If they are, good for me, but if they aren't, I just imagine headcanons where they end together.

    I've never felt like I had to support canon ships. There are a few ships I support that are canon (and only one of them I absolutely love, the others I'm just like "Yeah, they're cute" ), but the majority of my favorite ships are all non-canon and will probably stay that way unfortunately. I can hope though!

    I've never felt like I had to support canon ships, tbh. Sure, there are some ships that I like that are canon but majority of the ones that I do support aren't. If I like the two characters together, I'll ship them together. If I don't, then I won't.

    I don't feel obligated to ship canon ships, though normally I do just because of how the story unfolds and how the characters in the ship have interacted or if the context is there. I don't mind it. If I like it, I like it.

    In the name of every deity to ever have or will have existed somewhere in our world, NO!

    In fact, 02's Canon Shipping (Sorato) is probably the one I'm the most opposed to; mainly because of the whole Taiora VS Sorato dispute. It's not that big of a freaking deal...

    I kinda don't like supporting canon ships, but a ship I support quite a bit, Valeshipping (From Golden Sun), is as canon as canon can get, with Matthew being the son of Issac and Jenna in Golden Sun: Dark Dawn.

    And every night ...I lay awake ...and I find no conclusion.
    'Cause every night ...it just stays the same.
    And I dream ...of an absolution.



    I have claimed Ivan from Golden Sun, Bayleef, and Kingdom Hearts-Chain of Memories for the GBA.

    I feel that within certain communties there's most definately peer pressure to ship canon ships, but for the most part I feel free to ship whatever I want... Just stay away from fans who try and enforce their point of view onto you LOL
