Top 10 Pokemon Shipping of the Games

No anime content. Shippings that makes sense in the original pokemon story -the games- or eventually in the manga.
If the shipping is with the main character, of course the inverse genre makes sense.

The characters need to know each other, have chesmity and share a story, so no crackshipping with characters of different regions -that show no hints of know the other existence- just because they look cute together.

The Top Ten

1 Hoennshipping (Brendan vs May) Hoennshipping (Brendan vs May)

Just so cute they always say how impressed they are with each other and are always so supportive of each other

This is canon. - FrozenHatingPokefan

The rival in oras has a huge crush on the main character, and their family say they talk about each other a lot.In the end they have scene together on the mossdep space center that hints something more. - uoi


2 Sequelshipping (Hugh vs Rosa) Sequelshipping (Hugh vs Rosa)

Hugh & rosa are childhood friends. Rosa went with Hugh to help get his sisters Pokemon back. His sister seems close to both to them too. And he seems to like to look good for rosa when he meets up with her. She was with him through the good and bad.

If you played as Rosa in should know that this is almost a cannon ship

3 Preciousmetalshipping (Gold vs Silver) Preciousmetalshipping (Gold vs Silver)

Follows him around, understood the importance for love for Pokemon talking to him, didn't like to see him with team rocket, & would rather battle alongside with him than the blue haired chick.

Gold however has seen silver's past, and was fine battling alongside him dispite the struggles silver made him go through & how rude he was to him.

4 Originshipping (Wallace vs Steven Stone) Originshipping (Wallace vs Steven Stone)

Wallace and Steven being GAY, surprising. What's not surprising is how much money you can save by switching to Geico.

They seem pretty close on how they talked to each other at the end and work pretty well with each other.

Every single one of these pictures is cringetastic. Excuse me while I go barf. - eventer51314

5 Sailorshipping (Archie vs Matt) Sailorshipping (Archie vs Matt)

Matt is very loyal to Archie. He hangs out with him a lot and is so close to him he calls him 'bro' in which Archie doesn't mind.

6 BrightTomorrowShipping (Shauna vs Calem) BrightTomorrowShipping (Shauna vs Calem)

Shauna has explicit feelings for the main character. The fireworks scene in the palace is one of the most explicit romantic scenes in pokemon games. - uoi

Very underrated due do boutiqueshipping for some reason... This is very cute & has an extra line that isn't with Serena! 'I never watched fireworks with a guy before! '

7 Hoennchampionshipping (Steven vs May) Hoennchampionshipping (Steven vs May)

The ages are irrelevant because the characters act like adults. Also, the avatar is done to represent the player. May and Steven are cute together and they really have romantic oriented interactions.

Pedophilia, you sick punks. - eventer51314

They have the most developed relationship of oras and their interactions can be interpreted straightly as romantic

May has the age you want her to be. Tumblr social justice warriors are here now?

8 Ferriswheelshipping (N vs Hilda) Ferriswheelshipping (N vs Hilda)

Rough and tough tomboy and the innocent boy, perfect! The two are bound by destiny, that ferris wheel ride and his farewell get me every time

N is so obnoxious & acts like a know it all! Hilda deserves better than that whinny pushy brat!

When N go to a self discovering travel, Hilda leaves Unova to search N. In the sequel of the games N say to Rosa/Nate he needs to find the player to say how he feels. - uoi

The best pairing of the entire franchise.

9 Namelessshipping (Red vs Green/Blue Oak) Namelessshipping (Red vs Green/Blue Oak)

Blue might be a jerk to red, but he also refers to him as 'pal' at some points (I believe), waits for him to show up when he saw him at that company place, tells him what's going on with him and asks how red's doing (lavender town Pokemon funeral home), and from my recollection, 'smell ya later,' was not used in anyone other than leaf/red (as in he didn't say it to Lyra/Kris/gold).

HAVE YOU PLAYED HEARTGOLD/SOULSILVER AND SUN AND MOON? *spoiler* Once you get Blue's number, you can call him for a rematch but when I got his pok├ęgear number, he talked about red. and in alola, they're obviously on a honeymoon

10 Dualrivalshipping (Cheren vs Bianca) Dualrivalshipping (Cheren vs Bianca)

Cheren tells her what she does wrong so she can learn, stayed with her till she was able to travel with them, and with his smart and serious attitude is a good mix for a klutzy, but brave and bubbly girl!

Nope, Cheren is a stuck up brat who almost ruined BW for me, Bianca deserves Touya

The Contenders

11 Livecastershipping (Rosa vs Curtis) Livecastershipping (Rosa vs Curtis)

Curtis has a huge crush on Rosa, They have a date on the ferriswhell, often trade pokemons and call each other on a daily basis. - uoi

12 Commandershipping (Tabitha vs Shelly) Commandershipping (Tabitha vs Shelly)

Lol what? they hate each other


13 Twinleafshipping (Barry vs Dawn) Twinleafshipping (Barry vs Dawn)

They are childhood friends and are always together. Barry has a dream to became a pokemon trainer, but is prone to give it up when he see that Rowan is not certain if he deserves a pokemon and that could affect Dawn. Jasmine points how their relationship is beautiful. - uoi

14 Ironwillshipping (Riley vs Dawn) Ironwillshipping (Riley vs Dawn)

Interesting teacher vs classmate relationship

They meet each other first time on iron island and spend a time on the cave. He gives a gift to her, which is an Lucario. Later Riley and Dawn do a pair in the battle frontrier, and he remember and rambles about the first time he enconted her, saying it was their destiny to meet each other and perhaps they would encounter each other anyway. - uoi

Aw I love this shipping

Ew in sure Ridley's AN ADULT while dawn IS TEN!

15 Conflictshipping (Leaf vs Blue) Conflictshipping (Leaf vs Blue)

The shipping of the classic game. Blue is a jerk and pretends he doesn't care, but he loves her, right? - uoi

Leaf is non canon, so just Red and Blue makes sense. - lexifoxi

No... he's an idiot and bullies her... hatdly a love story

Oak (blue/green) doesn't bully leaf (or red). Sure he's somewhat rude sometimes to her, but it's more him having an over inflated ego than anything.

Him picking a Pokemon that is super effective against hers was his grampa's fault. He even wanted to pick first, but his grandpa made him wait.

Him saying something along the lines of 'don't bother _____, I got this! ' Is again him being full of himself. He even says something along the lines of 'no offense...' meaning he really isn't trying to piss u off (though probably doesn't care if u do get pissed off).

Him telling her not to go to his sister to borrow a town map... well obviously he didn't as if u go to her, she doesn't say anything about him saying that. And in FR LG, he acts like he was trying to help her out, as he said something along the lines of 'don't expect any More favors' so I think that was to help red/leaf (but he didn't want it to look like he was).

Him saying '_____ u r so slow! ' Or ...more

16 Soulsilvershipping (Lyra vs Silver)

The player meets silver when his life is in a trainweck. But Silver grow, became a better trainer, learning with the main character, to the point of admiring and cheering her at the end. He gets angry when discover that she joined team rocket, and at dragons den silver refuse to pair with Claire, criticizing her appearance and chosing the main character as his partner. He also says to the player that he needs to train his heart, hinting that he developed feelings and wants to understand it. - uoi

They are obsessed with each other in the entire game, so them being in love is a plausible explanation

Yaaa je repense encore au comportement de silver

Lyra is an ugly waste of space that should have never been created! Kris/crystal for the win! Hate that b***h Lyra for replacing kris/crystal! Silver deserves someone better than that waste of space that is Lyra!

17 Rebelshipping (Hilbert vs Bianca) Rebelshipping (Hilbert vs Bianca)

Childhood friends that started their journey at the same time, hilbert protects her against team plasma, she's often nervous or clumsy around him, and also helps him against team plasma giving items and similar stuff. - uoi

This is so much better than dualrival, I mean the scene in nimbassa city with bianca's dad and elesa makes it almost canon. there are so many hints bianca has a crush on the player character, which is most recognisable with the male pleyer character.

18 Expertshipping (Prof. Oak vs Agatha) Expertshipping (Prof. Oak vs Agatha)

She had a crush on her younger years, but their chose different paths married other people. Such a sad but interesting pairing

Agatha knows prof oak as the line "that old duff was once tough and handsome! Now he just fiddles with his pokedex! "

Just makes me wonder about their previous relationship before oak started 'to fiddle with pokedexs! ' I think back then it sounds like she had a crush on him! - Mariosprincessesfan

19 Mahinashipping (Moon/Femalemcxgladion)
20 Kalosshipping (Calem vs Serena) Kalosshipping (Calem vs Serena)

Calem and Serena have been through some tough times, and those times helpep them into taking down Team Flare fighting side by side. They did things that they never imagined to be possible, simply because they had each other.

They use each other just to get stronger. They are better with shauna

They have feelings for each other, even if they are friedzoned - uoi
