Top Ten Worst Pokemon Shippings

Shipping is paring two people in a media together. Got a favorite shipping why not a least favorite? What ships can't you stand? What shipping should not happen? Come here to put what shipping in Pokemon should not happen, don't think it would work out, or just don't like.

Here are some I just don't like or see happening.

The Top Ten

1 Amourshipping (Ash & Serena)

I don't understand why people find Ash and Serena having a healthy relationship. There isn't much healthiness about it.

Ash has no concept of romance. 10 year old boys do not understand romantic attraction as well as not ever feeling it. And guess what Ash is? Forever 10 years old. And he only views Serena as a friend. Literally like every other of his companions.

Serena has a crush on Ash, and from what we've seen, it's one sided. She is the one crushing and putting "effort" into getting with Ash, not Ash himself. She hardly ever speaks to the boy and bonds with him for crying out loud. You can't build a relationship with little to no interaction, Serena. I mean even minor characters that we rarely see interacted with Ash more than her, AND SHE'S THE COMPANION.

Just because Serena has a crush on Ash DOES NOT MEAN she loves the guy. She is 10, she doesn't grasp the concept of romantic relationships either. I've had crushes on guys when I was her age, but ...more

First she is not a childhood friend. A childhood friend is some one you know, and stayed in contact with since you were young. Second I don't like how arrogant the fans of this ship are.

! why is everyone saying it's cannon just because she "kissed" him. Like seriously people! As many people have already mentioned, Serena was not the first to kiss Ash! Why does the fact that she apparently kissed him make this cannon? It doesn't! If being kissed makes a ship canon, then that means that all the other people who kissed Ash should also have a "canon" ship. Are people saying this kiss makes it canon just because she's a traveling companion? Because that is not very good evidence. (besides, aren't they like 10? they shouldn't be kissing each other anyway! )

I see your point, but remember the writers only care about baiting more viewers so they promoted amourshipping because they knew people would fall for that - Engel

They both suck together!

2 MommyShipping (Ash & Delia Ash's mom) MommyShipping (Ash & Delia Ash's mom)

This is messed up! First of all : She is the person who gave birth to Ash! It's disgusting and horrible that people would ship this! If this was real then would someone support it? Hopefully NOT! It is completely GROSS that someone would ship this...

What the hell!? I can't believe this even exists. DUMBEST THING EVER! Totally messed up.

This... Oh my god. This is so messed up. This is DISGUSTING.

Speaks for itself really... - CrimsonShark

3 Ikarishipping (Paul & Dawn)

Because you know, a girl and a boy who hate each other so much makes a healthy relationship. /sarcasm

The whole "good girl & bad boy" thing is overrated. They had very little interactions and even less positive ones. - Mariosprincessesfan

This is like the worst ship ever. Paul is someone that gets on Dawn nerves and somebody would ship her with him? Definitely YUCK

At least Dawn is a bright girl (though I think she's low with Pokemon) but Paul is just plain dumb so why ship a clever girl with a stupid boy?

4 Pokeshipping (Ash & Misty) Pokeshipping (Ash & Misty)

First off, at most I could see Ash and Misty at best, as having a brother and sister relationship. Why? They fight almost just as much as a Zangoose and a Seviper, and they show the WORST in each other. Maybe it's cause Misty developed and matured when Ash left, but Misty wasn't as temperamental when Ash was out of the picture. And for having feelings for him (I admit, it's a good possibility), she put him down as bad, if not worse as GARY. Then there's the fact that she can't cheer him up, and only made things worse, as shown after the lost of Ritchie at the Pokemon league. Yeah... great relationship right there, when you have to have someone else pull you away when you're raging at a depressed person. Ash also seemed to have more maturity when he left Misty, as he was more patient with May and tolerated her more, despite how she was with him at the beginning. Now I'm aware of tsunderes and the possibility that Misty was most likely one, but that doesn't mean I like those type of ...more - Mariosprincessesfan

Apparently Ash and Misty are horrible with each other much as people support Pokeshipping. It's not the kind of shipping like, "Hey, maybe Misty is Ash's ex? " No way. Yes, we know that Misty wasn't desperate for Ash's love - pooh! - like Serena was, and she was a tomboy, unlike Serena, and like Serena, was sometimes jealous of girls who liked Ash and tried flirting with him. But Serena didn't abuse Ash constantly and physically like stupid old Misty did! Misty is not actually a true villain like Jessie and James, but she acts villainous. She's a bright thinker, but with Ash she's terribly stupid. Not my idea of a Pokemon ship.

I don't think Misty and Ash are a good pair romantically at all. They basically just shout at each other all the time. Yes, they do value each other but as friends. If they were lovers, they'd scream at each other all day. It's just that Misty's temper is not a good match to Ash's. Misty seems more like a big sister to Ash honestly. She can be caring, but of course she gets angry easily.

They Fight About Childish Things every time! And Ash Is Real Savage In "Make Room For Gloom! " When He Argues With Serena,They Argued About Less Childish Stuff! How Could A Lot Of People Hate Amour?

5 Pikashipping (Ash & His Pikachu) Pikashipping (Ash & His Pikachu)

Of course it's bestiality! It wouldn't be anything but! This is seriously sick! Of all the relationships in the anime, Ash and Pikachu's relationship is the purest and sweetest. Like Old Yeller and other stories like that, they saved each others lives and would gladly sacrifice again for each other. Their relationship is a platonic one, based on trust and shared experiences. It sickens me to see that people pervert this special friendship.

This is messed up. I didn't even know this was a thing...

This makes me vomit.

Good thing I've never stumbled across any literacy atrocity based on this shipping, judging by my FanFiction experience. - CrimsonShark

6 Penguinshipping (Dawn & Kenny)

Compared to other ships with Dawn, this one just doesn't have potential... - DerpyPolarBear

Awful ship. No connection or chemistry at all - Jackster

This one just sucks, they had a few moments and a few scenes of shipping. So now they're a ship? Please just give me Pearlshipping

7 Stirrunashipping (Bonnie & Ash)

Great. Ash, 10 years old eternity, will be expected to date Bonnie, a little kid half his age. Ash's life is fabulous.

8 Daddyshipping (Ash & Sammy) Daddyshipping (Ash & Sammy)

With others like it why would you want a middle aged man with a child?

Whoever added this to the list is actually a pedophile or is really stupid. Why ship an old man with a young kid? - Unharmless

The name daddyshipping makes it even worse... Is people are shipping that, that's just pure pedophilia.

I ship ash with young professor oak! they would make a good couple but now professor oak and ash is just... no please. watch the celebi movie - lowkeysavage

9 Gymshipping (Brock & Misty) Gymshipping (Brock & Misty)

Brock is not supposed to be with Misty. Yes they have lots in common but Misty is much better with other boys than Ash and Brock is cuter with Nurse Joy, or Melanie, Officer Jenny but just to let you know, Brock does NOT have a crush on girls such as Misty May and Dawn, but it's weird someone would ship Misty with Brock and not May or Dawn. So this is NOT a good ship.

Don't get me wrong. Misty and Brock did have a lot in common: being gym leaders and knowing what that entailed, as well as being the more rational and knowledgable trainers on Ash's journey. Hell, they were even in the background together countless times, because Ash was the main focus. But there was absolutely no romance or romantic undertones between them at all.

"Heartbreak of Brock" made me dislike this ship. Wishfulshipping may be similar, but there's no conversation that made me want Cilan to cut off all friendship with Iris completely like I WANTED Brock to do with Misty during this episode.

Misty and Brock ew

10 Wishfulshipping (Iris and Cilan) Wishfulshipping (Iris and Cilan)

Eh, Iris and Cilan did speak a lot, one on one. When Ash was off doing his thing battling, Iris and Cilan mostly were on the sidelines together and they did interact a lot. I can pretty much go both ways, shipping this and not. - waterpkmnmaster

Another bad keep away ship. They barely communicated with each other and there was no interest at all between the two.

If this happened it would be like the alain and maron shipping if this ship ever happened cilan would be known as a pedophile.

Iris is a independent black woman that need no man!
Jokes aside, I could only see them working when their personalities are OOC. And the given hints are usually more friendly than romantic, thus making this ship pretty weak compared to other ships. I could only see them as close friends and nothing more. Not to mention most of the dialogue they share are during Ash's battles.

The Contenders

11 Ripoffshipping (Pikachu & Togedemaru)

It's all right I guess

12 Heattagshipping (Conway & Dawn)

Conway was a creep - Rue

This shipping is actually kinda cute lol but! BUT! It's also heavily one sided on Conway's side.
There is evidence that Conway likes Dawn, but I don't think Dawn likes him back, at least not romantically.

13 KalosShipping (Calem & Serena)

Hey. I ship calem and serena to death and I don't mind what ship you ship even if you ship ash and serena. and I hate that ship with a passion

Okay, you may not see much of the ship in the game, but just look at the manga!

There is no chemistry whatsoever between these two and, if you took the time to actually read the dialogue, you'd also know how much the rival uses the protagonist for their own selfish gain.
Aside from this, the fan base is overly aggressive and will not hesitate to lash out at anyone who ships something different.

Yeah that ship is just cute! If you a armorshipping guy so be it.

14 Harmoniashipping (N & Ghetsis) Harmoniashipping (N & Ghetsis)

N was constantly abused by Ghetsis even though N is his adopted son and people ship him with Ghetsis? NO! Give N a break!

Disgusting father/son relationship with added abuse/neglect. Perfect awful ship.

Who would ship such pair? is disgusting and offensive and there's no substance in any media to put them together - uoi

People even ship same sex relationships. I'm DONE. I'm DONE. - SuperAlienGamer

15 Oakshipping (Gary and Professor Oak)

Gary and his grandpa! Disgusting!

holy crap

Worst than daddyshipping as they r actually related unlike 'daddyshipping' & worst than mommyshipping as Sammy is gary's grandfather & so is a LOT older than him 🤢 (But all 3 r gross)

16 Cuteshipping (Pikachu & Sylveon)

They wont go well together

i love it!

17 BlueShipping (James & Team Rocket's Meowth)

End my suffering. - cassiabez

This is werid - SushigirlO6

Who in the actual hell thought this was a good ship? So, we first have the so wrong Pikashipping, then we have another representation of bestality.

*drinks 10 bottles of bleach - UselessName

I have no words.
I literally have no words.
This is a representation of how screwed up today's people can be.

18 Rocketshipping (James & Jessie)

What? No chemistry? What show have you been watching? Jessie and James has more chemistry than any other Pokemon pairings. And there's nothing sibling-like about them. Seems to me you don't understand characters like these, perhaps you will when you grow up. Kids don't understand adult themes as well you know, all the kids I know has ended up liking Rocketshipping after they grew up.

It is very much a sibling-like relationship. But of course, any affection shown between two characters is always taken as romantic, even when it's clearly platonic.

I love both characters so much, but they have no chemistry whatsoever. It's such a brotherly/(domineering) sisterly relationship. I just love how James and Meowth only want Jessie to do well in life because they fear for their own existance.

I support this as a sibling relationship rather than a lover one.

Nice to see at least ONE person who sees this. I literally can't find any anti-rocketshipping people anywhere.

Yes just yes

19 Pearlshipping (Ash & Dawn)

Dawn doesn't like Ash that way, and Ash is dense as a brick when it comes to romance. Dawn never showed romantic interest in Ash. Just because they are good friends doesn't that mean they have to become a couple. Girls and guys can be just friends. I see no logical reason for these two to be together. There are ONLY friendship hints.

What idiot put this? This ship is AWESOME. - DerpyPolarBear

It's a pretty good ship very popular too

Nah it's pretty stupid

20 Comashipping (Ash & Paul)

I don't ship, but I tolerate it. So please, stop with the ', GAY' comments. Thank you.

Wow a lot of homophobes here;;; anyway, I don't ship ash with any of his rivals. He's not the kind of character that have crush on his enemies or mean people. - uoi

Agree with the the part that you say being gay is not a bad thing,because gee there people too,but THIS just a big no and I don't know why people ships those two._.

Can someone tell me why there are so many GAY shippings
I don't get why a boy would flirt or something like that to another boy
I thought this was a kids show
If ere are any kids in the room please cover their eyes
