So, beliefs and morals are what hold humanity together, and I don't think we as a species would've gotten far without them. So, to the main topic: What belief and/or moral system would partially or wholely represent a shipping to you? Ancient and dead faiths such as Celticism, Classical Greece, or Ancient Egypt are welcome to flavor the topic here as well. Remember: This is not a debate – rather, it is a place for ponderous comparison on Pokémon culture (specifically 'shipping).
I think PearlShipping could be represented by Hinduism, for its somewhat carefree attitude and outside-the-box thinking on its hint structure.
