Top Ten Pokemon Shippings


The Top TenXW

1Ash and Serena

I LOVE this pairing. For the first time we have a girl who has a canon crush on Ash (Misty was implied to like Ash mostly for the 4Kids dub, in the Japanese dub it was slightly implied). But a lot of people bash Serena's crush on Ash saying she's obsessed with him (Apparently forgetting Misty was far more possessive of Ash than Serena ever has been). Recent episodes have shown that Serena's love for Ash is the real deal, she knows him well enough to know when he's not being himself and pull him out of a funk accordingly. Serena appears to be closer than Ash than the rest of the Pokegirls, truth be told he seems to treat her better than he did the others. Ash has shown subtle hints of maybe liking her back such as: consistently putting what she wants above what he wants. Ash has established himself as someone who doesn't like to do feminine like things (clothes shopping, or dancing) and Ash consistently agreed with Serena's request of going to clothing/Jewelry stores, he hates dancing ...more

The reason I support this ship is its most likely canon even though its one sided still I think it's better, like ash is 10 yr old and when one new girl arrives people start shipping them, i am like what the hell seriously and when ash meet a new girl who will just appear for 1 episode they wont even leave that girl also they ship them like seriously its Pokemon adventure show not Pokemon shipping show. I really want serena to come to alola so that at least they will stop shipping ash with other girls it's so stupid like when Pokemon ends it will have a record look ash ketchum a 10 yr old guy who is shipped with 40 girl and 40 guys and guess what he is shipped with his Pokemon also. And I think amour is best to end it hater will be everywhere like some people wanted Naruto and sakura, but still Naruto and hinata happened right. I am not saying other shipping is bad like how other say this ship is, I am just saying show some proof that ash as feeling for misty dawn iris and may or they ...more

Last comment shows how ridiculous this whole ship is. Serena doesn't know ash that well at all. Ash even said it himself "you don't know how I feel! " She likes to pretend that ash is this perfect being of 'positive & energetic' and gets upset if he doesn't respond in a way she wanted in her little fantasy land. If ash is so into her, why didn't he want to help her with her first pokevideo? Or ditched her while they could have got their gifts for their Pokemon together? Why didn't he even shoe interest in hanging out in a city alone like he did with Iris? Or heck why didn't he even want to talk to her when he was down? Honestly it looks like he's even less closer to her THAN MISTY who he was at least fine dancing with one time. Ash & Serena would be as bad as HarryxGinny, and it's sad people don't see it, just care that there's a (boring) main female who is obsessed (yes she is! That's why ash has to be like she wants or she'll throw a fit) & want to force 'development' onto ...more

This ship is by far the best and there are lot of evidence and the kiss also proves it its canon and now those who are going to say its one sided after the kiss, do you really think the kiss is a joke in anime like pokemon and to hater who kept this in worst shipping or kept serena in worst character we don't care we don't come daily to the page like you all and vote it cause that easily proves how much your afraid of it.

2Ash and Misty

I know that Serena literally has a crush on Ash, but it's also so obvious that Misty and Ash should be together. I mean, seriously. She follows Ash on his quest to become a Pokemon master for no reason! Please don't say that Serena will be with Ash. I disagree completely.

I don't like Amour, but Poke not that great ether. Ash only blushed about her once while TRio made fun of them as a couple but didn't blush when seeing her in a bikini or kimono. Isn't that odd?

Then Pokeshippers want to use the whole Rudy situation as a hint. Well, I like to see how you guys would react in a situation where a judge cares more about getting with someone then your performance. Also Ash whining "what about me? " in that other Orange Island episode again what would you say to your friend who just ignored you for no reason when you're cold? Pokeshipping was as one-sided as Amourshipping is, but it's funny pokeshippers think differently.

Oh, on how 'well' they got along... Misty put down Ash as bad as Gary did, made things worse after the fight with Ritchie, and only when they separated ways did they have a positive conversation. So no, I do NOT think these two are good for each other.

Ash and Misty are a perfect match. The time they been together was really something special and throughout the show they earned each other's friendship and more. Ash may not say he likes misty, but actions speak louder. They care for each other in the long run and they were each other's first crush. Misty will always be remembered to to along side Ash. And ash will keep Misty in his memory and heart, along with Brock and his other friends. But Brock and Misty will always be number one for Ash's friends.

Ash had a crush on her, but called her ugly & did nothing to try & help her out (unless forced to) what?

3May and Drew

I've seen almost every episode of Pokemon and I have to say that these two have the most chemistry, while they have their fights occasionally they still look out for each other and in my opinion come the closest to being canon from a lot of the popular ships

How can you not love this ship! Everything about it is great! I hope they'll make a series for May in Johto. It's obvious that they both like each other and blush in front of each other!

Yes! I support Ash and Misty, but this is good, too, and to be honest, this one is more likely.

Cute, definitely great

4Ash and Dawn

I love Ash and Dawn together! They are so cute together! They even had their own song! They should be together forever and ever! I don't know why people keep saying Ash and Dawn are more like siblings than lovers?! I personally think that Ash and Dawn is one true pairing and to be together! I don't know why others like and prefer Ash and Serena together. Ash and Serena's shipping is just too boring for me. I would always ship Ash and Dawn together even if nobody liked it! Ash and Dawn should be together in end instead of Ash and Serena be together. Ash and Dawn is my otp! Ash and Dawn together for the win!

There's that gif on tumblr where they are both staring up into the sky (why? I don't know) and then he looks at her and it melts my heart.
Also also also in battle dimension when Dustox leaves (which is really emotional because whenever team rocket is sad, I am sad) and they are talking about the Dustox living happily ever after with their true loves, I SAW YOU ASH KETCHUM LOOKING AT HER, YOU THINK I MISSED IT BUT I didn't! Watch that episode and you will see!

They are clearly meant for each other.

Best Ship EVER! Period

5Dawn and Kenny

I love this shipping! But really I don't get why people hate it so much though, look at them they grew up together and at one point dawn said that Kenny looked handsome when he beats ash! It's so romantic

But in the anime dawn rejects kenny

Overhated I thought Kenny was an interesting friend as was relieved we had more of friendly rivals in D/P/Plat seasons than rivals that just put down MC

There are cute together.

7Wobbuffet and Kirlia

This one was sorta cute. They fell in love in one of the episodes. - Oliveleaf

W t f? How did this even enter the top ten? This ship makes no sense...

8Ash and May

I do not know why I like this couple so much but it is my favorite. I like Ash and Serena too but I do not know the way Ash takes care of May is so sweet and he saved her a lot of times. Best couple in my opinion.

What got me was how Ash is always supporting May. He was there to comfort her when she missed the boat to get to the contest, and he saved her life from falling down a cliff while being attacked by Mageton. Not to mention the Manaphy movie.

They just really seem sweet together

I know Armourshipping is the most canon but I really love this pairing. I know that there's Drew in the picture as well (no pun intended) but I guess something about May/Ash interactions have potential.

This is my favorite ship out of all them. Screw Ash and Serena. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

10Snivy and Pignite

Yeah. It is cute, but I lean more more towards snivy x oshawott, but not Ash's ones! I prefer snivy x lignite on that one! I just think the species complement each other!

The Newcomers

?Ruby and Sapphire

... Why is a Steven Universe ship here?

V1 Comment
?Misty and Gary

Well I kind of like this shipping! Dunno if Misty likes Gary but maybe Gary seems to like Misty, is that why Ash and Gary become rivals or what?

But Misty and Gary maybe are meant for each other. What was this shipping name again?

The Contenders

11Bonnie and Max

Well. I saw a picture that Bonnie kissed Max and good they're the youngest couple I seen yet. Yep! I like this they are so cute together!

At this point I ship Bonnie with Molly since this ship is overrated shipping with Bonnie

They look cute together. Best youngest couple in the series

I'd love for them to meet

12Gary and Ash

My favorite! Ash looks cuter with a boy than with a girl. He will never truly LOVE any girl. Sure almost every girl has a crush on him, but he really should meet up with Gary again.

This is one of my favorite ships of all time!

Wow. As if we didn't have Naruto and Sasuke already. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

This would be cute

13Elekid and Marill
14Dawn and Paul

This is literally so cute! I know a lot of people say they shouldn't be together since they are so different...but...opposites attract right? I don't know, I jut think it would be interesting to see someone with a peppy attitude paired with someone who seems really cold.

AWFUL SHIPPING! Why is this in the top ten? Not only did Paul & Ash have more positive conversations (which is saying something), but they barley communicated at all

This ship is so overrated. These characters have barely made contact.

I don't know what's crazier, Ikari or Diode.

15Cilan and Iris

Cilan is too awesome to have a girlfriend. Need I say more? Also, 5 year age gap. - RiverClanRocks

This is good. Its nice and sweet they protect each other from their own fears.

I have always seen Cilan as a brotherly figure to Iris and ship them as a BROTP, but I'm kinda okay with this ship.

So cute! I totally ship them!

16Pikachu and Buneary

Worst Ship

First of all Buneary has a crush on Pikachu and pikachu doesn't have a crush on Buneary

Stupid ship, you name it

But how do you know pikachu is a boy and bunary is a girl maybe they're both boys or both girls maybe bunary is lesbian or bisexual or gay... We may never know

V4 Comments
17Iris and Ash

I'd say it's pretty underrated, but Iris as a whole is pretty underrated. They look cute together and shown they can have fun together by swigging on trees and hanging out in that one city. Cute shipping wish it wasn't as disliked.

Its actually a pretty good shipping

I think she thinks of him as a kid so it wouldn't really work

19Cassidy and Butch

Cassidy treated Butch way nicer than Jessie EVER treated James, so Neoshipping way better than Rocketshipping!

Cassidy couldn't even remeber butch's name in some episodes but I think they'll look cute together

20Brendan and May

If you played Pokemon oras you should know this is almost canon.

Oh come, on! Bring this ship to the top where it belongs!

One of the best shippings in the games and better than anything in the anime

Contest shipping is more nice
