Top Ten Pokemon Shippings

The Top Ten
1 Ash and Serena

I would say that Serena is the best pokegirl and she even is the most popular in Japan. If Serena was the main pokegirl in the XY series who would take her, I mean it can't be Bonnie because she is still young even though I love Bonnie. Ash would still get support from his friends, but it won't be the same without Serena there and she supported him through thick and then. Ash might not have come up with the plan to beat Viola for the second time, Korrina, and who can forget Wulfric the hardest one yet? Serena would still be stuck at home training to become a Ryhorn racing and who knows she could've been successful in it. I love Serena and she's the girl who needs to be with Ash as his supporter, inspiration, motivation, and girlfriend.

Ash always talked and treats all the other girls differently. With misty its more like two best friends being themselves. With may, its more brotherly, always there for her, essentially he and brock kinda become the older brother she never had. As for dawn, dawn here is kinda special as I felt like this was the closest ash has been to a girl, lovewise. As for serena, serena is the first girl that we see befriend ash, the first girl ash invites. Serena is also the first girl too actually kiss ash, on screen.

Isn't it love that you met a girl in your childhood and you still remember each other despite being from other regions. definitely the most romantic relationship and the best shipping ever

Oh my moons, I cannot tell you how much I love this ship. It has been confirmed that Serena did in fact kiss Ash on the lips, and that she will be in a relationship later on in the series. I mean, when the creators of Pokemon themselves ship them, you know it's bound to happen. Also, she is the first Pokegirl to have known him before the series timeline, and the first to have an explicit crush on him. Serena was also invited to come along with Ash, instead of asking to. No other girl has been as close to Ash as Serena, and face it, they are adorable together.

2 May and Drew

Best Pokemon Shipping in my opinion. Sucks that Shuu/Drew was only a side character (a rival to be exact), or else Contestshipping would be no doubt better than Advance. Hope that I can see both Shuu and Haruka/May again in this gen.

To that copy paste maniac freak everywhere calling Drew a player.

How's Drew a player when he's not even hooked up with any other girl than just May? How it's his fault if his fans in the anime find him attractive. Guess what salty manchild, by using your own logic both Ash and May can be called players since they slip from one to another as their new love interest. Just because You are addicted to booze doesn't mean whatever you think after having it is true. Not that anyone forced to like contestshipping. You choose to stay salty, so put that in your pipe and smoke it!
Despising a character is one thing but spreading hideous rumours/lies about a character is another.
Hope you get the same treatment with YOUR favourite character just like you do with other minor, least popular character.

AmourShippinf is a little bit too stupid and it was ridiculous since Ash and Serena rarely does cool stuff to each other. But May and Drew? Opposite-attracting or secret-love ships were amazing. Their relationship was amazing and you could see that by watching some episodes. I just watched two episodes today and 1.) May tried to save Drew from falling into a waterfall since she got the rope but Drew did not, then they hold hands and May fell down 2.) May tried to keep Drew alive when he went unconscious from the water. May kept crying out Drew's name desperately but they were saved by Wynauts 3.) Drew was very friendly towards May for the rest of the episode 4.) At the end of another episode they were "dating" and watching the sunset together PERSONALLY. Then they chat... that part was so romantic! Until stupid Harley comes and interrupts, but Harley pointed out that they were doing... stuff together. LOL
Anyways I love this ship. Seriously Drewg gave May two roses and swallowed ...more

This SHOULD be above pokeshipping because...
A) They didn't bicker at all sure they got upset/irritated over what each other said/did but they got over it and make up while Ash & Misty fought 24/7 & while fighting is normal for a healthy relationship not that much.

B) Drew gave her (not Beautifully) RED ROSES. Not only do red roses are romantic but it wasn't just one time but throughout the series. A handkerchief and an ugly lure isn't romantic. Gross Misty!

C) Both sides have GOOD solid proof both are interested in each other. Along with the above, Drew has always watched out for her and tried to get her out of trouble, teased her, and secretly cheered for her. And for May, just watch the episode 'Spontaneous Combustion' and that's more solid that May likes him than 'lol Ash waz cold he wanted Misty more dan a blanket' or 'a judge is paying more attention to Misty dan hiz performance n Ash is mad lol he jelloz even doe he was always focused on being the best ...more

3 Ash and Misty

Sure, they fought a lot, but they never meant it in a harmful way to each other. It was always in a childish and joking way and was cute and fun to watch. They clearly care for each other MORE THAN JUST FRIENDS. Ash has never shown those feelings towards any other girl. They are just meant to be...As for Serena, it's kind of ridiculous that she likes Ash after all these years. I mean in reality, that would just be seen as clingy and pretty weird...

Although most people say that 4Kids made Misty and Ash look like they were in a romantic relationship, it's still Pokemon. There were even hints in the Japanese version, too, although they didn't add as much. I can clearly see ash and misty in a romantic relationship, as Misty is one of the only (Probably the only) Pokemon companion that Ash loves, and Misty has even saved ash or at least tried to save him multiple times. She also has a unique attitude, compared to some of the other girls, who are just, well, normal typical girls. Some might say that ash and Serena is a better ship, but keep in mind that ash barely shows any sign of love.

Probably because I like old episodes. Old episodes are easy to remember, I can feel the moments and even remember all Pokemon names but I can't remember episodes starting from Diamond and pearl even though I watch all the episodes. May be because I lost interest as Misty was no longer in the anime.

This ship was by far the most mutual. Yes it was partly due to 4kids but still.

Yes Misty would rag on or hit Ash. But a lot of those times Ash had it coming by having a case of "Foot In Mouth" syndrome, and Misty went on the defensive. At the same time she has done it to Brock over supporting Ash when Brock fawned over Jeanette. Ash and Misty got along great when they would not push each other's buttons. I've seen people say Misty and Iris were very similar but Misty did not relish in bashing on Ash if Ash did not deserve it. Iris did it just for kicks.

The two also had the most reactions when the other one was flirted with. Misty would get jealous when girls flirted with Ash, and vice versa when guys flirted with Misty. That's a detail that has not been seen much with other females.

Whenever something would happen to one of them the other expressed a lot of concern, sometimes not even mentioning another character who was in the same peril.

Even in the Sun ...more

4 Ash and Dawn

Out of all the pokegirls, I truly felt like it was very one sided. misty had a crush on ash but he never realized it, there was no romance element to ash and may just really good friends, as goes for the same for iris, and for serena it felt like she was a knock off mixture between misty and dawn. Dawn and Ash are the ones who felt like equals, they had the strongest on screen chemistry (yes even better than misty and serena) that made me feel that there was something there since most of the time you could tell a friend zone was placed. You cannot tell me you didn’t feel something when dawn came to unova, the whole dynamic changed and it felt like it was in their own little world even with cillian and iris there.

The best is pearl shipping.. Dawn's is the most suitable for ash ... They should get married... Ash really likes her more than anyone.

Ash and dawn are just made for each other... Their friendship is so real... And dawn had her own goals in life rather than just travelling with ash... Ash has learnt so much with dawn... Those two are just the perfect couple... Dawn is the only female character in the pokemon series who has a central character just like ash... This clearly shows how important dawn was for ash... Also he has saved dawn so many times that one can not even count. Their chemistry is the thing which I loved the most about the diamond and pearl season... Also we can see that whenever Dawn has an option to chose between Ash and any other boy, she has always chosen Ash... She is just like Ash and shares an informal relationship with her. Dawn's piplup's reference shows that how important dawn is for him... And since they are just like each other the understand each other the most... Even Cynthia, the sinnoh champ knows that how important they are for each other... I just want this ship to be fixed permanently ...more

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!

5 Misty and Tracey

Misty seems way more tolerable with Tracey than she ever was with Ash and seems to like to hangout with him as seen in the Chronicles and the last episode of BW. Plus he gave her a Azurill and helps her out like when she needed more badges. So I can see a healthy relationship starting here

I think this ship is best and I support this ship to make misty fans crazy,if misty fans can ship other pokegirl with some dude why can't all ship misty with tracey,mean these 2 spend more time together these days and tracey giving a egg which turns out to azurill like cute pokemon and when ash return back to pallet town he find out that tracey is with misty.This ship as always shown some canon side showing they have feeling for eachother.

I think there may be something between these two they got along well

They would really make a great couple,like they are always together and kind of look cute.And they really get along.

6 Jessie and James

I don't get why they're not more popular, they're the ones with the most chemistry and they really care about each other. Rocketshipping is so painfully underrated. But I think I know why and that's because the new audience of each generations are mainly children and they are less likely to understand grown up characters. I've shipped these two since the beginning and my friends didn't get it back then, when they got older they understood what I meant.

People are shipping 10 year olds with each others, but the actual possible pairing among the main characters is this far down. I'm sorry, but seeing 10 year olds in a mutual romance is very very rare and just feels weird to me. Rocketshipping is the real possible ship.

I don't like shipping children so Rocketshipping is best by default. Besides, it more than default and has gone strong as my main ship for 18 years. This is not just something I forget, they're perfect together and they'll always have a special place in my heart.

This is so underrated. Why do people like those unrealistic Ash pairings? He's a kid, his female friends are kids. I find it disturbing how people ship kids so seriously, when the actual adult shippings are underrated.

7 Ash and May

I am sure Ash would risk himself for his worst enemy. Doesn't mean Ash want to end up with this crap known as May. This pathetic girl abused my Ash even though the latter saved her ass. Can't believe people actually think this whiny little piss is Ash's love partner. Even Drew deserves better. Ash even misses May's contests, so sad. But he never misses Dawn or Serena competing.
You got your life handed to you May.
Now it's a matter of time that Ash becomes a pokemon master and you remember boasting infront of him because your father is a gym leader. Misty can hand your ass to you with her Gyarados.

if the banned episode "first kiss under the mistletoe" wasn't banned, then may would beat ALL the pokegirls with ease! besides it's a cute ship.

Well Contestshipping always better than this and there's nothing to go on as they're interested in each other, but they had some things I like about this ship were I don't know if I like this or Pearlshipping most out of the main girls x Ash ships.

1. It seems heavily implied that Ash is mostly responsible for her acceptance/interest of Pokemon. What I'm saying is that when she saw Ash respond to Pikachu at the end of episode one not only she not care about Pikachu frying her bike at that time, but saw that how they were so cool.
2. They have the opposite, but similar thing going on. Not only is May into Contest than badge quest, but also is styling, mature, and, caring. We all know is... well was during kanto-hoenn immature, mostly thinks about self, lets his mom decide what he wears, and could careless about his messy hair. Both are adventurous, child-like, and love to eat.
3. Had some pretty strong moments together like the Ranger movie and splitting the ...more

This right here the best! They would totally work as a couple! They balence differences & similarities! Ash watches her & protects her, ash has shown to be important to May & May has held ash back from making terrible decisions! They can show what each other is thinking like when they split the ribbon! They are so perfect for each other!

8 Go and Koharu

So glad this is already at number 8. It reminds me so much of Amour... Chloe also blushes and cares for Goh a lot... already super cute.

just underrated

9 Cilan and Iris

Iris is like fire with an fierce,reckless,adventurous personality,and Cilan is like water with a calm,cool,and cautious personality.They maybe opposites but as they say opposites attract in some cases and in my opinion
I think they should be together they would be such an awesome Pokemon couple! =3


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.

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

Hey I'm a WhishfulShipper, but Ash and Iris look good together, Cilan and Iris are better off together though.

10 Ash and Angie

Ash basically said he'd die for her! They bettered each other!

Oh I love this ship! I can't believe how low it is!

Not sure if I ship this

The Contenders
11 Brock and Lucy

Both really liked each other but couldn't get together

#Just give brock a girlfriend.

The ultimate ship!

12 Clemont and Korrina

Voting to comment.
1. Age gap: Clemont's about 13 and Korrina is somewhere between the ages of 18 and 22.
2. No signs of a romantic relationship: Just because Korrina told Clemont about her past doesn't mean a romantic relationship,
3. Clemont is too awesome to have a girlfriend,

That one episode where Korrina tells Clemont about her past made me really like this pair

I like this! Citron and Corni are both gym leaders, have relatives shown in the anime, and have blonde hair.

They are both gym leaders, and it's better than shipping with ash.

13 Calem and Shauna

In the games this had so much more hints than boutiqueshipping (Shauna x Serena)- firstly, in santalune forest, Shauna follows you around asking to heal your pokemon. Then, in the maze she asks you where she should stand. NO matter how many times you mess up (when playing male character) she doesn't get mad at you. And at Parfum palace, she says she will remember this moment forever. Also the music played in that scene is called together with shauna when playing as male. And I'm pretty sure the sm mom is shauna

Honestly, I actually thought this would become canon on my first play-through of Y.

Shauna follows you everyday in x and y and seems more into you than Serena.

This is my go to ship if suddenly everyone hates kalosshipping. I ' love this ship

14 Elio/Sun and Lillie

Probably one of my favorites such an underrated ship needs more attention in the fanbase

This is my OTP 😍 and, in all honesty, Shauna and Calem was my first ship and then I played Pokémon Moon and immediately knew after beating the game that this was my OTP. There is also more evidence that Lillie has a crush on Elio/Sun/Male MC than Selene/Moon/Female MC, so I don't know why (and how) this ship is overshadowed by FMC/Lillie. It's a brilliant ship that is underrated.

15 Ash and Iris

What WHY is this on the 42th spot? Oh well, no matter what people think, Negaishipping is my favorite ship from the animated series. Why? Because Iris and Ash complement each other in an unique way I haven't seen in the series before. They both ADORE pokemon, set their friends before anything else, love playing around, are adventurous and love stuffing their faces with food. Yeah I know Serena has a crush on Ash, but that's pretty much it. Iris doesn't out Ash on such a highpedestal and she point out his flaws so he can improve. Ash isn't perfect, and Iris know this. They both have a long way to go as trainers, but if you gave them time to mature and grow, they could achieve greatness.

That's why pearlshipping ash dawn is so popular if people like personalities apart ?

This ship has something part of all the ash x main girl ships except advanceshipping.

Pokeshipping misty and iris are pretty similar pointing out ash's mistakes though iris was not nearly as hard as pissy misty . Also took time for iris to like befriend ash.

Pearlshipping iris got along extremely well with ash like dawn. It's because of this these ships get pushed aside as 'friendzoned' or 'brother sister like relationships' by other shippers. Iris also did some sort of cheer for ash like dawn has done for a couple gyms.

Amourshipping oh look, iris had A REAL DATE here! That planned day with iris in the city? And he didn't ditch her after some time too.
by the way, iris was the one to first to be asked to join ash on his journey and ditch the bike gag. Just so we are clear

This one is my favourite pairing for Ash (the dummy)! I like how subtle it is and that it doesn't try to shove it in your face. Heck it may not even be THAT canon. That's what I like about it!

The only good AshXFemale travelling companion ship in my opinion(REspect your opinion haters) Advenceshipping is okay, but I prefer Contestshipping. Armourshipping, Pokeshipping and Pearlshipping sucks in my opinion. But this ship is so underrated, it's cute and those shippers don't push down opinions down out throats. Best AshXMain girl ship ever in my opinion.

16 Pikachu and Buneary

People r wrong when they say it's as bad as boreshipping. While its definitely one-sided, pikachu seemed to b more fine being with buneray than ash with Serena & sometimes even smiled (an actual smile not that uncomfortable smile with the sweat drop) when buneray hugged pikachu. While one-sided & stupid this > boreshipping (ash & Serena).

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

This is a really good ship

I guess its one sided

17 Bonnie 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!

Yes! I know they never met before, but fourthwheelshipping for the win! They better travel together at the end of the anime or there with be death

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

I wish they actually met in the anime, it's like a match made in heaven

18 Black and White

Seriously, the hints, the interactions, the blushing, THE REUNION?! A "platonic boss-employee relationship" my ass. Seriously, they are already canon, they are just not aware of it.

I love this ship so much such nostalgia

They are so nice

bruh opposites check uh do I need to say more

19 Brendan and May

Please make this higher! Much better than amourshipping as it'd be more likely two-sided than amourshipping will ever be and is not creepy at all like how Serena is with ash sometimes. Also better than pokeshipping as they don't see the need to nag and argue with each other every time they talked like ash and misty. But Brendan grew to respect may and may got a true friend with Brendan. Way cuter than amourshipping

I don't play the games or watch the anime, but even I know these two have something good going on, just by looking at fanart and fanfictions. I even went through the trouble of looking at different polls and voting for them in every one.

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

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

20 Dawn and Paul

One word ,No. This is litteral garbage as dawn possibly one of or the best pokegirl paired up with a cold hearted jerk who abuses his pokemon.Pearlshipping 4 life.

Probably not happening, but "opposites attract" so --> paul (cold, distant, treats pokemon terribly, kind of a loner) x dawn (bubbly, cheerful, bright, loves her pokemon, friends with ash, brock, kenny, zoey etc)
"stand by for battle" x "no need to worry! "

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.

I personally didn't like this ship before, but after seeing the fanfic and fan arts, I began to like it. I shipped this ever since I was 12, and I still ship it to this day! Though I also like Barry x dawn, Saturn x dawn and Conway x dawn, ikarishipping will always be my favorite!

21 Brock and Misty

GymShippers for life!

Not as good as PokéShipping but still cute

22 Cheren and Bianca

They are just so cute together and they could balance each other out well

Seriously, Dualrivalshipping is the cutest ever. Just cute, cute, cute.

23 Victor and Gloria
24 Dawn and Kenny

Kenny and Dawn is an great ship. of course there are other ships but this is really great! Although Kenny likes Dawn,when he beat Ash in the battle,he did not force Dawn to go on the journey with him as he knows how much cheering for Ash means to Dawn. Kenny also likes to tease Dawn to a certain extent and he watches all of Dawn performance. He really cares about Dawn and will always cheer her up when she is sad.

Dawn congulates Kenny even if she loses the competition and she also an very great friend to Kenny. if she does not like Kenny or does not care about his feeling,she won even hesistated to reject him straightaway and instead she is kind enough to leave an sweet note to him.

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

I knew for a fact that guys tease girls they like that's why Kenny always called her DD even though she told him not to.

This is always 1000% better than Ikarishippping an this ship is so unnderrated and Ikari is WAAAYYY overrated

Dawn did seem interested in Kenny in the anime, and se even said he was cute when he beat Ash!

25 Barry and Dawn

In the games this is a pretty cute ship!

A perfect match...

The best one in my opinion. They are such a cutteee cuple!
