Top 10 Best Pokemon Shippings

The Top Ten
1 Ash and Serena

I truly believe that Ash and Serena are made for one another. No one could write against them once you see Pokemon XY and XYZ. There were many scenes during Ash Kalos journey where Serena and Ash love for each other was shown like :
1. It was Ash who actually asked Serena to join him on his journey, a thing that we have never seen ash do before.
2. He gave Serena a gift even though it was not her birthday or something just to thank her. So many girls have helped Ash before but he never gave him a gift.
3. When Serena was getting ready to go to Hoenn, she gave Ash a kiss. What could be more romantic than this and after the kiss the expression which Ash gave to Serena proved that he liked her too.
So that why I say that Ash and Serena shipping is the best.

I don't understand how you can ship ash with literally anyone else. ash and serena IS the ship. they are perfect for each other

Nowadays we see people sharing their opinions here and especially screaming out, that Ash and Serena are meant to be for one another. And I personally think this is true. Like, hello! It's rather special don't you think, that really, after such a long time from meeting in childhood, Serena still remembered Ash and had feelings for him? Don't comment badly on this - it's true because after that incident Serena never saw Ash again, or knew his name, until she was a teenager and saw him in the middle of a Pokemon battle. I kinda liked the idea of downright, sharp-tongued Iris to be with solid, hard-working Ash, because it's rather funny, but honestly I think Ash and Serena are better together. And really, Ash only argued with her once, and Serena is always kind and helpful to him. Iris is really funny with Ash, in my opinion, but she's too hard with Ash and argues with him. Dawn? Oh, she's completely marvellous and is like Ash's female clone but really she's a bit hardheaded and rather girly, very like Serena, but really much as Ash and Dawn are close they argued maybe at least two or three times? Anyways May is rather girly too, and fights with Ash constantly. Misty's just like that despite her crush on Ash. But now here's a fair-haired girl who decides she loves Ash and desperately wants his attention, but really you can't blame her. Misty liked Ash but she was cruel and mean to him. Serena liked Ash, but she was kind and helpful, and also loyal. Even after their first and probably last argument, she never was hard-hearted and scornful of him even if he lost. OK All I can say is ash and serena should be a couple!

2 May and Drew

If anyone had noticed, in who what when where wynaut, May and Drew are holding onto each other even after they fall off the cliff. When they are drifting down the river before the waterfall, you can see that their heads are really close together making them appear as if they are holding on to each other. The reason I say this is because, if they weren't holding on to each other, they would probably be drifting apart like the way they were after they went down the waterfall. Also, if you look closely, you will see that they are still holding hands when they go down the waterfall. They don't actually let go of each other until Drew is unconscious, and then May gets a hold of him again.

Don't believe me? Go watch the episode and see for yourself!

You know advanceshippers phrase "roses die, but ribbons last forever"? There's some problems with that:

1. They imply things that have life aren't as precious as things "that last forever". So I guess whenever they get a significant other, that person won't mean much to them, as well as they themselves. After all, they will die. Good news is all life is indeed precious.

2. May/Ash didn't go out to get Ash/May a ribbon. They both tied in a contest, & agreed that they both deserve to win. Drew always went out of his way to get roses for May to give them to her.

3. Ribbons aren't romantic. They are an accessory, or in the Pokemon world I guess a medal. If you went out & brought your wife a ribbon for your anniversary, she more than likely wouldn't be as happy as receiving a red rose (which signifies romance), unless she's a ribbon enthusiast or is allergic to flowers.

3 Ash and Misty

These two are perfect together. (Sorry amour shippers but) Misty was the only female traveling companion that Ash showed jealousy in when she was paired with another guy. Misty had so much more development than the other poke girls in the franchise. I guess you could describe the two as tsunderes. The most obvious hint that they liked each other was in pokeball peril when they were stuck on a blimp in a trap that team rocket made to trap them James points out that the two are "very romantic creatures" leading to meouth pointing out that they both are lovebirds. This leads the pair to look at each other and blush ash they look away, only to deny it. Ash and Misty are supportive of each other ( we all have our mistakes so don't get on me about their arguments) and will look to each other for support. Ash's reaction to his goodbye to Misty( and Brock) was sadder that his goodbye to any other girls he met on his journey. If you guys are hanging on Serena just because she kissed Ash then I don't know but there was actually a banned episode in America where Ash and Misty do kiss , but it only aired in Japan. So I hope that these two get together in the future and I think that these two genuinely care for each other really much , despite their arguments.

4 Ash and Dawn

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 in the anime and other characters can be brought and removed as per the maker's choice...

5 Ash and May

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 half-ribbon

So Advanceshipping is pretty awesome (though Contest and Pallet for the win)

6 Jessie and James

I really love this ship and it's the 3. famous ship in Pokemon. I ship them since I watched the Show. I am not that much a fan from romance in movies but I really love to ship them, There are much romantic scenes between them and James named her Darling, sweatheart and something like that in some random moments. I just love it!

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.

They've been together since childhood, they are best friends, they practically know everything about each other and are destined to stay together forever (much like married couples) I honestly can't think of a more reasonable shipping. It's even canon in a manga!

7 Misty and Tracey

I used to be a pokeshipper, but lately I just love the potential and the interactions of this couple so much! Chronicles made me fall in love with them!

Whereas one could like better the type of romance where two people bicker a lot to hide their reciprocal fondness (which it's totally acceptable. I'm not judging it), I just love more the connection Misty and Tracey have. They are perfectly in tune with each other, on the same wavelength, and I admire that. If I could choose a romance for myself I would want something like that.

You can feel that they respect each other a lot and enjoy spending time together a lot, from chronicles onwards.

He's there for her, they can count on each other. I like the idea that they were only friends during the first arcs, but then revalued each other once they got to know each other better. I like the idea that maybe Misty underwent a bit of a crisis after leaving Ash's side, but Tracey, without even realising it, was there as a pillar for her. I like that Tracey has a chance to shine by her side and that Misty has a chance to be happy.

I like the assumptions that everyone makes about them in chronicles (the narrator too, haha), I like that her sisters are supportive of them. Just... They are cute! They give off domesticity! I think they would work really well together, they have such a good influence on 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.

I like this ship. It has good chemistry and I feel like they both have a nice thing going.

They have potential.

9 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

Even though they've never met, they would make a good couple.

10 Cilan and Iris

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

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

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

The Newcomers

? Goh and Chloe
The Contenders
11 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.

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

12 Brock and Lucy

#Just give brock a girlfriend.

It's such a great couple unless Olivia came in sun and moon..
My favorite. shipping in the case of Brock

The ultimate ship!

13 Calem and Shauna

Like the ship. Good relationship and also during the fireworks display after catching furfru, Shauna points out he is the first guy the has seen fireworks with. Also, Calem seems protective of Shauna like the legendary arc of each game where he is the rival. He tries to convince her to leave in order to keep her safe. Good ship.

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

I know that boutiqueshipping isn't the EXACT same thing, but those moments with Shauna were some of my favorites throughout the game, even though I first played it as a girl who hadn't yet discovered she was gay.

14 Elio/Sun and Lillie

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

15 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,

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.

16 Pikachu and Buneary

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

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

I guess its one sided

17 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!

Ash literally almost died saving her.

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.

They are so nice

19 Dawn 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

I love IKARI!
Dawn and Paul do seem to care about each other and Paul changes due to her. I like this and Pearl, but this is obviously better!

20 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.

Ash is the most like iris sure he might be better friends with dawn. But I just fell that this is the way it goes down.

Misty is a jerk to him stealing togepei and stuff(she literally pushes him out of the way when it Hatcher's)

May likes Drew Canon

Dawn is only friends with him.

Melody and Latios wouldn't happen because movies sent complete canon.

Ash never showed any signs of liking Angie or Macy.

Leaving the only other one he might like to be Serena.

And giving the choice between iris and Serena I would take iris.

Oh and as for Gary. Gary doesn't seem gay just look at all the girls he let him follow around.

21 Cheren and Bianca

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

I can see them being together.

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

22 Dawn and Zoey

If Pokemon had the same representation the newest Nick/Cartoon Network shows have, they would certainly be canon. They have the chemistry and the aesthetics. I love them.

I don't have a problem with gay shippings, but this is just nasty.

I see them more as best friends.

It's really cute actually, I didn't watch DP but I looked on the Bulbapedia article and it looked cute.

23 Brock and Misty
24 Ruby and Sapphire

My OTP! This Ship is the best one ever created! They knew each other since they were young, and had a crush on each other ever since. Yes, Serena knew Ash when he was young, but Ruby saved Sapphire's life! He even has a scar on his face to show for it!

This is the best ship ever (spoiler alert)not only they are a good pair but they confessed their love for each other and continue to show signs of feeling for each other.

This is %100 percent canon in the manga.

25 Victor and Gloria
