    Default What is Your Favorite Game Shipping?

    I have been curious to ask the shipping community here, in the Serebii forums of what gameverse shipping you support the most~

    Mine is Burningleafshipping (Red x Leaf) with Hanadashipping (Red x Misty) coming in very close.

    What is yours? =)

    Does Game Amour counts? (Red X Serena) not sure what it's exactly called:


    Also, I like Transcievershipping (nateXYancy)

    And yeah, I like Burningleafshipping as well.

    Well I never heard of GameAmourShipping. But oh well, I guess it's cute.

    Other than that, I don't really ship any game shipping.

    Hard to say, truth be told. I'm very fond of a few pairings that I consider OTPs and I don't think I can choose one from them;

    1) Senirasushipping (Volkner/Candice): I'm a firm believer that Candice will provide Volkner with a battle to remember and her infectious, perky, overly focused personality will eventually break through to him. Hey, if Volkner considers Flint his best friend I'm sure he'll be alright with Candice's company!

    2) TotalEclipseshipping (Dawn/Darkrai): I'll not delve into this too much because it's human x Pokemon and mileages will vary on the matter, but there's something about it that keeps me drawn. It's as if Dawn is the light at the end of Darkrai's tunnel and she can see that it's not the truly malicious Pokemon it's made out to be. I also got a minor hint from The Rise of Darkrai, because I'm terrible like that.

    3) Unworldlyshipping (Courtney/Zinnia): Aesthetically it's absolutely outstanding and the fanartists can see that too, yet naturally there's more to the pairing then that; both of them have characteristics that make them stand out as people who lack a certain grip on reality (Courtney's difficulty to socialise and interact with others, Zinnia's plan pre-Delta Episode and concern on what to do with her life after the episode's end). The idea of these two coupling up and helping each other out through their differences really appeals.

    Yeah, I cannot and will not pick. There's other ships that I'm not including here, either, because otherwise this post will take about ten times as long to read.

    Hmmm, tricky subject since I'm not very versed in the gameverse ships. But ATM Hoennshipping strikes me as having the potential to be considered a ship I support, courtesy of ORAS. Besides that, not much. I'm more fond of shipping the female game girls with Ash
    I may not care much for Amourshipping, but I do love Serena!

    Oh god, I have A LOT of game shippings XD

    But here are my top faves, 'cause all of them would probably take forever XD XD XD

    - OriginShipping (Steven/Wallace): probably my game ship OTP, and I adore reading fic for them, 'cause they can be such super dorks together, it's precious. (Also, it's really, really easy to make the pair of them super duper queer, and I always appreciate that in characters/pairings. And what I mean by this, is that, beyond just calling them "gay", I can headcanon Steven as, for example, either asexual or demisexual, and headcanon Wallace as having some degree of gender fluidity to him, or vice versa, and so on and so forth. I love having queer headcanons, and so I appreciate these two characters' particular versatility in the regard. Idk if I'm explaining this right, though *headdesk*)

    - DragonQueensShipping (May/Lisia/Zinnia): I love all three subsets of ships so much (ContestQueen--May/Lisia; AlphaIdeals--May/Zinnia; Speciality--Lisia/Zinnia), so of course I love all three of them being together as well! Lisia and Zinnia had such cute and sweet relationships with May in ORAS (with Lisia crushing so hard on the player character, and just check out Zinnia's dialogue with you!!!), and I think Lisia and Zinnia themselves have the potential to be great together as well (what with Lisia's desire to bring people new perspectives on life with her Contests, and with Zinnia trying to find new purpose in her own life). So this way, I can have my cake and eat it too! :P

    - LoverivalShipping (Brendan/Wally): Because Wally is all things precious and adorable in the world, so how could anyone resist that cuteness? XD But more seriously, between May and Brendan, I think Brendan could benefit and grow and learn more from a relationship with Wally than May could. And part of what I love about shipping characters is seeing the new perspectives, growth, and broadening of horizons that they could bring each other. And, for me personally, I think May gets that best from other places (see above), whereas, given Brendan's struggles with his masculinity (as illustrated nicely with his dilemma of wanting to buy cute dolls in ORAS), he stands to learn more from Wally, who fails in certain aspects at being an ideal masculine figure by not being able-bodied and athletic, and yet who is still so strong and full of determination and willpower. I just....love positive relationships between characters like this, and I feel that shipping is a great way to bring it all out. XD

    - PerfectWorldShipping (Lysandre/Sycamore): Because suddenly, the XY games make a whole lot more sense to me. Why they're constantly talking about and praising each other, why Sycamore is so determined to have faith in Lysandre and see the best in him, why Sycamore later feels that he in particular should have seen Lysandre's betrayal coming.....it just clicks it all suddenly into place for me. Plus, I like this ship because it serves to humanize Lysandre in a way that I feel the game (sadly) fails to do otherwise, and actually makes me feel for his character. Like, most of the time, I have to be given reasons to like a character, and some kind of contrast has to be set up to make a character's fall all the more tragic and poignant. So, why should I care about Lysandre? If you show me that he has friends, people who genuinely care about him that he's betraying....then yeah, his descent is suddenly a lot more sad and has more meaning. It's especially necessary for Lysandre, because I feel that he was supposed to be a tragic figure like this, and even if his 'solution' was obviously the wrong way to go about it, he still genuinely cared about the injustices in the world, and was trying to combat things like poverty, unemployment, the great strain on resources, and selfish over-indulgence. I think the games ultimately fail at conveying that tragedy of Lysandre's character, of the fall of a man who genuinely cared so much into madness, but this ship gives me at least some stakes, and something to care about in this character.

    ....Eh, I've talked myself out for the time being, but here's a few other favorite game ships of mine, that I may elaborate upon later: BoutiqueShipping (Shauna/Serena), WhiteSquaredShipping (Hilda/Rosa), ShiroShipping (Hilda/Bianca), HardenShipping (Archie/Maxie), and HoennShipping (May/Brendan)!

    What is behind that name? I understand the Rouge means red and Lune means moon, so Serena is "moon" because she's "serene"?

    I have a few.
    In order:
    3. Lisia x Brandon. I think it's cool how she becomes your rival in Contests. Plus, if you played as Brandon and got to Master Class in, then she actually flirts with you. Also, there's this other dude who I can't remeber the name of that also had a crush on her. All in all, it made Contests more interesting for me.

    2. Shauna x Calem. There was that whole Parfum Palace thing, and their dynamic is intresting.

    3. Hoennshipping. First of all, I absolutly adore the rival battle theme song. Second, their relationship is so cool and it's implied that it's canon. I just wish May/Brandon was developed better. I mean Wally was phenomanal, but May/Brandon had almost no development at all. I still like it though.

    I'll admit to this as well. It's really, really weird for me, but since it's a very small soft spot in my case, I don't think about it as much, and even then, I think of other Darkrai ships I'm more fond of than TotalEclipseshipping.

    I don't think of game shippings much, but SoulSilvershipping I think is the one I like as a whole. I don't know why I like it, I just do. FerrisWheelshipping is in the same boat, although it's not as prominent with me. Although this is just really weird because technically, because I played as those playable characters, it's like shipping Silver/N with myself even though I know that's not the case.

    Perhaps, although given the name of the shipping I personally reckon it's more to do with Sailor Moon and how Usagi's sub name was Serena in the original anime series.

    That's fair enough and I respect that. Truth be told it's good to know there are other supporters of the pairing, now matter how minor the liking is!

    Namelessshipping (Red & Blue/Green Oak): Well, since Ash represents Red & Blue/Green represents Gary, whats keeping me from liking this? When Blue/Green runs into Red in the games, it seemed he was happy to have him around to chat and brag.

    huntershipping (Ethan/Gold & Silver): I swear Silver is obsessed with MC. I know he hates TR from his past & all, but recognizing him/her on spot & FORCING him/her to take off the uniform... what's up with that? Does Silver have some sort of hero-ish view of MC or something & HATES to see that ruined? Also, he's pretty much gets a lot of growth from MC and follows him around, so yea. Anyways, yea you can add Kris/Crystal (not Lyra, sorry) in here since well, MC = Ethan/Gold & Kris/Crystal (butasamoremslashfani'llgowithhuntershippingkthx).

    HoennShipping (Bredan/Ruby? & May?/Sapphire?): They help each other out and also grow from each other. Bredan grows a better view of May? if you choose him and I find it nice that May could finally get a friend =3

    DualRivalShipping (Bianca & Cheren): Well they are childhood friends & so each other pretty well & get along well. But they are pretty different so that they can mix well with their weakness but they obviously can get along and support each other.

    SequelShipping (Hugh & Rosa/White(2)): They did a lot of things together & Rosa helped get his sisters pokemon back. It's also obvious that they are pretty close & Rosa is also close to Hugh's sister as well (since he went on a journey to get her pokemon back in the first place it's obvious she means a lot to him). So they work well with each other & help each other out a lot.

    ExpertShipping (Prof. Oak & Agatha): I mostly got into it in R/B/Y. "That old duff was once tough and handsome! That was decades ago! Now he just wants to fiddle with his Pokédex! "-Agatha. Guessing they knew each other when they were younger. Also Agatha seemed to have some interest in him, though it seemed that he was more interested in making his pokedex than noticing her, she got mad? Idk just how I see it. >.> But it does make me wonder what Oak thinks/thought of her.

    AntagonistShipping (Lt. Surge & Sabrina): I can see Lt. Surge being attracted to a girl like Sabrina. Lt. Surge seems to have his stuff together to handle her. Also, it's pretty chilling or something imagining them together... or that's just me XC

    BrightTomorrowShipping (Calem & Shauna): Fireworks, memories, fireworks... "I never watched fireworks alone with a boy before." Aww I just find them to be a cute pair. Wish that this was a bit more popular.

    VanivilleShipping (Trevor & Serena): They just look so cute together. I'm sure Serena would enjoy someone like Trevor and Trevor would enjoy a bright but serious and calm girl like her.

    Transceivershipping(Nate & Yancy): I find it cool that Nate finds her transceiver then get to know each other. Also, she gives him special pokemon & rides the ferries wheel with him.

    SailorShipping (Archie & Matt): Two hot manly man yes! Those two just seemed so close at the end of AS. Just loved their interactions and it just seems so hot.

    CommanderShipping (Tabitha & Shelly): Both high admins on opposing teams, and I like conflicting team members to see past differences and get together at the end. With their old design they look good together. With their new? I'd say it's a nice contrast lol

    I only actively support HoennShipping honestly. I shipped May and Brendan since Gen 3 began and my love for the ship was rekindled when OR/AS came out. I even did some fan art of May and Brendan kissing a few months back, but I never had the guts to post it online.

    My favorite is definitely Transceivershipping (Nate/Yancy) I've started shipping them together when BW2 first came out. Yancy clearly had a crush on Nate, she was always blushing whenever he called her. This is just such a cute pairing and I love it.

    I also like Hoennshipping (Brendan/May) I didn't really ship this pairing before when RSE first came out but ORAS have defintiely changed that. They really shoved this pairing down our throats. For goodness sake, when Brendan/May tell the player they're the best friend they ever had is just such a cute right before going into the Cave of Origin. What else is there to say?

    Those are my main two but I also like BurningLeaf, Chess, Fortune, Botique, and whatever Ethan x Lyra is I forgot *shot*

    HoennShipping is really the only game shipping that I support. Most other game shipping are just way too platonic for my case, like there's actually nothing going on, only that some people are making belief out of those.

    I have LOADS of game ships that I am completely taken with (and I ship a lot more in the games than the anime for those who don't know already). I could honestly list hundreds of ships, but I'll try and narrow it do to ones I really, really love and/or whatever is at the top of my head at the moment. XD

    - Volkner/Jasmine: My Gym Leader OTP and one of the reasons that I came back to the fandom. I just can't get enough of them together even though it's completely nevermet. If GF ever decides to do a remake of DPPt, I hope they get some sort of interaction, but I doubt it. Won't make me stop loving it though! :P
    - Flint/Elesa: A completely weird one, but I just see them working out together quite well. You could say I see this as a "hetero" version of Volkner/Flint--which I also love. xD
    - Riley/Dawn: One of the few age gaps ships that I absolutely love. I can't really describe it, but it's just so sweet in a way.
    - Morty/Whitney: This would probably be my second Gym Leader OTP. I just love everything about these two and seeing them together, working out their differences and complementing one another, just makes it works. I just can't... <3
    - Lance/Karen: Whether as friends or lovers, this one is just sexy to me... Plus I love the whole "bad girl getting tamed by the hero" cliche.
    - Siebold/Malva: Pretty much like Lance/Karen, but Siebold and Malva would be more in a love/hate relationship. xD
    - Brawly/Roxanne: One of my recently ships thanks to ORAS. It's a shame they didn't get to interact much, but at least we were given hints that they were good friends in Emerald as well as the ORAS demo!
    - Hugh/Rosa: If my memory serves me correct, I think this was my Protag/Rival OTP... I ship a lot of people... Haha
    - Aarune/Lisia: I'm guessing age gap, but whatever. xD Two different careers, but similar positive outlooks... I love it!

    I have more, but you can probably read it over at the Shipping List thread (forgot what page I'm on...sorry).

    .: credit :.
    I love these skeleton brothers and their relationship. I am not sorry.

    Off the top of my head, Valetshipping (Darach/Caitlin) and EliteUndershipping (Lucian/Aaron) are my absolute faves, though I seem to like most ships out there!

    I want to see Shauna X Trevor. Not sure what you could call that, but its any interesting idea, nontheless. I can't really say anything to support it, but who knows? Maybe they'll put that in the anime or next game. Fingers crossed.

    Admittedly when I was younger I developed crushes on Falkner, Silver, and Cheren, and to be honest I still have soft spots for them. Which means I ship some of the ships featuring them. I like these ships as both friendships and relationships.

    Falkner: I like him a lot because Flying has always been my favorite type, and I absolutely love birds. I ship FatherlyShipping (Falkner x Janine) and KeeperShipping (Falkner x Lyra). The former because Falkner and Janine both seem to have some daddy issues, which was confirmed by the Pokemon Adventures manga. I like their sexually charged friendship/rivalry. The latter because Lyra is the player character, and I like the idea of the player character getting together with Falkner. :P

    Silver: I hated him at first, but when his character development came in I became very fond of him. I ship him with Lyra (SoulSilverShipping) because I like the relationship he has with the player character. (And let's not forget his yandere-ness in Vietnamese Crystal xD)

    Cheren: I have a serious soft spot for nerds. I like DualRivalShipping (Cheren x Bianca) because they manage to be good friends despite their contrasting personalities. I also ship Cheren with Hilda (CheckmateShipping).

    Main series-wise, the only couple I really ship is LivecasterShipping, TransceiverShipping's counterpart. Truth be told I love TransceiverShipping too, but I prefer LivecasterShipping because Yancy and Curtis have similar personalities and to me, it comes cuter for Curtis.

    BoutiqueShipping (Serena x Shauna) has to get this spot for me. Maybe it's because I'm a sucker for yuri ships (lookin' at you, AppealShipping), but the dynamic of Shauna's almost Pinkie Pie-esque levels of bubbliness and optimism compared to the much more reserved and - depending on who you ask - slightly pessimistic Serena is one that I'd love to explore in, say, a one-shot. Plus, they both have cute designs. That's always a plus.
