Top 10 Pokemon Shipping of the Games

uoi
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 Burningleafshipping (Red and Leaf)

I love these two together, for me they are complementary, Red is the fighter while Leaf is more like a coordinator or a breeder, something between those two classes. I like to put them like childhood Friends and then they fall in love with each other, a very tipical love story, but effective after all.

Oh my gosh yes! I love this ship! Thank whoever put this up here! RedxLeaf are so adorable together and would make a fitting couple. In my view if Red and Leaf met each other, they would make the perfect couple! So cute arggghhh! And @theXfactor thank you for your posted comment! Your way of telling it shows a broad reason as to why this couple is liked. Your answer was plentiful :) and I will have to look for that story!

Haha yes! This is the ship I root for! It's funny because I literally recommended a ship to be added almost a week ago (Burningleafshipping (Pokémon FR/LG) and find the same one added on as well! This is a pretty old ship because I remember a lot of people talked about it in like 2010 to 2013. It's awesome to know that Burningleafshipping has it's flame going. My OTP. @theXfactor I have seen that story on wattpad! It was really great and I could see why it won. Dragons_rose did an excellent job

€The characters need to know each other, have chesmity and share a story”
Idoits broke the rules. This list is ruined. There’s no way that you can say red & leaf know each other, & the only way they share a story is because they literally have the same story, as they are just genderbent if each other. Seriously there’s no way they can live in a different house or have a different mom! So beyond weird, and the definition of not making any sense because there’s no time they existed in the same universe. Stupid crack ship that people obsess over for no reason 😒

2 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

WHERE IS GARBODOR AND JYNX SHIPPING MY WIENER WILL STAY SOFT UNTIL I SEE THOSE HAWT POKEMON HECK EACH OTHER!

3 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!

From the beginning to end, how they first met each other at first till when they parted ways. It was all, lovely. This is one of my personal favourite ships, their interactions and how N gradually changed little to little because of player/Touko/Hilda/White. Their ride at the ferriswheel, their parting. Everything, every time I think back to it, just overwhelms me with emotions.

This is literally canon, have you played the Unova games,
if so you know what I mean

4 Hoennchampionshipping (Steven vs May) Hoennchampionshipping (Steven vs May)

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

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.

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

5 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

6 Druidshipping (Lucas vs Cheryl) Druidshipping (Lucas vs Cheryl)

Really underrated couple - like all Lucas shippings. The main character protects Cheryl in the forest. She often says they make a perfect pair and that she feels elation when traveling with him. Later she gives the main character a gift, and she says that hopes to encounter him later. They eventually make a pair in the battle frontrier. - uoi

After generations, where it's implied the main characters saves her of the old chateau, I can see this shipping happening. And cheryl is hot. - lexifoxi

Sounds a lot like cloud and aerith. She is a lady involved with flowers and nature, has a first sight crush, flirts with him and he became his powerful bodyguard.

They look sexy together.

7 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 BW2...you should know that this is almost a cannon ship

8 Moonlilyshipping (Moon vs Lillie) Moonlilyshipping (Moon vs Lillie)

Pratically canon - uoi

9 Preciousmetalshipping (Gold vs Silver) Preciousmetalshipping (Gold vs Silver)

Mot only are they both male but they hate each other - boltslegend

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.

10 Boutiqueshipping (Serena and Shauna) Boutiqueshipping (Serena and Shauna)

Shauna is completly in love with the main character - Carmelicb

The Contenders

11 Ironwillshipping (Riley vs Dawn) Ironwillshipping (Riley vs Dawn)

Interesting teacher vs classmate relationship

Aw I love this shipping

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

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

12 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 pokégear number, he talked about red. and in alola, they're obviously on a honeymoon

13 Omegatruthshipping (Brendan vs Zinnia) Omegatruthshipping (Brendan vs Zinnia)

Should be higher - diana123

I hate zinnina she's such a bossy, controling brat! So glad rayquaza attacked her favorite legendary due to that ❤️❤️❤️

14 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!

15 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

16 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

Sometimes the smallest actions can symbolise a lot... Bianca's been there for Touya the whole time, she cares for him and Touya would do anything for his friends. Rebelshipping... an unspoken love...

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.

17 Heartsoulshipping (Ethan/Gold and Lyra)
18 Folkloreshipping (Lyra and Morty) Folkloreshipping (Lyra and Morty)

Their dinamics remember of Howl and sophie hatter. They make an awesome couple. - Carmelicb

19 Commandershipping (Tabitha vs Shelly) Commandershipping (Tabitha vs Shelly)

Lol what? they hate each other

NOPE

20 Fortuneshipping (Lucas vs Dawn)
21 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.

There not gay - boltslegend

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

22 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

23 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

Lol @ the hyper sensitive people who thought what blue oak did to the protagonist was ‘bullying’. This ship is pretty cute, but yea leaf is non-canon

This is such a beautiful ship, my OTP! I have no idea why it isn't at number one. Gosh, I hate burningleafshipping and palletshipping with my life.

And to all you people that commented here? YES, Leaf IS canon

24 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.

25 Newbarkshipping (Ethan/Gold and Kris)
26 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! '

27 Eternalhoneymoonshipping (Kukui vs Burnet) Eternalhoneymoonshipping (Kukui vs Burnet)

Its already canon - boltslegend

28 Mahinashipping (Moon/Femalemcxgladion)
29 Sunflower Shipping (Lillie vs Hau)

(GAME SPOILERS) It's so obvious Hau had a crush on Lillie, like when he admired her new look and cried when she left for Kanto

30 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

I think people take the 'i'm glad we r friends' line too far.

A. While we can't really say for sure how old they r, they could b as young as ten and I don't think that 'friend-zoning is a thing then really

B. They just met like not too long ago. The playable character just moved their while the other person was always friends with the others. Saying something like 'I'm glad I just met u & want to date u! ' Would b extremely odd

C. Saying that he/she is glad that they r friends is actually a good thing for their relationship. Friends do become lovers sometimes & he/she is saying that they impacted their lives more than their other friends did.

And other moments I liked is that he didn't mind ever that u won the mega ring fair & square & is confidant with your help with team flare.

31 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

32 Chessshipping (Hilbert and Hilda)
33 Visorshipping (Nate and Rosa)
34 Transceivershipping (Yancie vs Nate) Transceivershipping (Yancie vs Nate)

The same as livecastershipping but with diffetent genders.n..

35 Morningsunshipping (Sun and Lillie)
36 Burningleafshipping (Pokemon FR/LG)
37 Newrivalshipping (Wally vs May) Newrivalshipping (Wally vs May)

May helped Wally get ralts, and Wally was really inspired by May. He was nervous about asking to be her rival. Plus Wally is a cute sweet guy, and may is a shy, bubbly girl. It's a cute mix!

38 Redemptionshipping (Kris and Silver)

Kris should’ve been in HG SS. Lyra is an ugly clown that should never existed. Kris & silver look cute & unique & way more so than that fugly thing that replaced kris.

Silver seemed interested in the protagonist & got upset when he saw him/her apart of team rocket. Kris teaches him about how to care for Pokemon & yea this ship is pretty cute.

39 Gentryshipping (Sycamore vs Diantha) Gentryshipping (Sycamore vs Diantha)

Well... she calls him for his first name and they share a past together

40 Bananashipping (Silver and Moon)
