In my list, I'm not going to put real justifications for nevermets or COTDxMain character ships because then my post goes over limit. Hah.
Main Character x Main character
OTP: Advanceshipping - SatoshixHaruka
tl;dr as to why this is my OTP hehe.
This ship has been my OTP for Pokemon for the looongest time. During the OS I always acknowledged the existence of Pokeshipping, but I was largely apathetic to it; it didn't strike any chords with me; I always thought Satoshi was way, way, way too immature for Kasumi. I shipped her with Kenji when he came along :p. Then AG game along, and Satoshi grew up a bit, and Kasumi had been replaced. As soon as I saw promo pics of Haruka, I liked her right away. Even moreso than I liked Kasumi. Watching AG0001 sealed the deal for me - I started liking the pairing right away.
This will always be my favorite SatoshixMain Girl pairing, like, forever. I know the anime PUSHED contestshipping, but I prefer the interactions with Satoshi and Haruka. It was clear from day one that the two most important guys in Haruka's life (well, three) will always be Satoshi, Shuu, and Masato, but I always much preferred Haruka's interactions with Satoshi. It's very nuanced. I will go out there and say that her character development would have NEVER happened if it weren't for her chance encounter with Satoshi; she is the only main girl whose story (to me, anyway) would have never existed without meeting Satoshi, traveling with him, learning from him.
The fact that she has adapted his battle style says quite a bit. The reason why I do not prefer contestshipping is because of Shuu. I like Shuu, I really do, and even though I'm an avid advanceshipper I've never, ever considered Shuu to be a cheating bastard that only wants something from Haruka like those other anti-Contestshippers. That's just wrong. I acknowledge that Shuu is a motivator in Haruka's development, but that he's much too focused in his work. The fact that they have conflicting goals spells the possibility of them having conflicts within their relationship, I think. I've always imagined Shuu as quite celibate in that respect, haha. This is one of the only RivalxRival pairing I flat-out do not support. I don't like his flashiness or his pretty boy-ness; and I much prefer the subtlety of advanceshipping.
Back to advanceshipping. Haruka places so much importance on Satoshi. She prefers him to her FATHER. It's clear in the canon that she places so much belief and confidence in him that it gives her strength. Haruka is presented as this girl who is sweet, cheerful, and optimistic... with pretty much zero confidence in herself and her abilities. From day one Satoshi believes in her; and he becomes this pillar in her life that motivates her to realize HER strengths. And it's now and only now that Shuu begins to show attraction to her - after she proves herself formidable and worthy. But for Satoshi it's never been her worthiness that causes him to be so dedicated to her; I personally think he enjoys playing the hero - her hero, really. The Umi no Ouji Manaphy! was so captivating to me - the advanceshippy scenes really, really took my breath away. They were just a culmination of all their interactions in the entire series, together, in a life-or-death situation. Satoshi knows the grim reality of death - having hovered on the brink of it many times before. He takes on the responsibility of protecting EVERYONE, knowing that the ending might come out badly for all of them. By badly, that means everybody drowns. And yet he doesn't give up. And Haruka knows, too, but she's scared out of her wits; she's tired too, but instead she gives herself up to Satoshi. Puts all of her trust, courage, and energy and channels it toward him - which snaps him out of unconsciousnessness and lets him find the energy to swim like, 20 feet.
I especially also love the scene in DP076, when Satoshi and Haruka pull out their ribbon halves again. This scene, too, is so nuanced. Haruka asks "Kore matteru?" After pulling out hers - asking innocently whether or not he still has his half that they shared. And Satoshi responds, "Aah, mochiron." "Yeah, of course." And he casually pulls it out of his pocket. Their memento that they share together is so important to him that he doesn't just keep it in his backpack, but that he treasures enough to remember to carry it with him at all times. The depth to that scene is even further enhanced when Haruka says that when the times get rough for her, the comfort she needs is to pull out the ribbon and think of Satoshi's encouragement. That he saves so much belief, just for her. Uhhhh, and the contestshippers say that advanceshipping doesn't have any hints! :p
I acknowledge both ships; it's just a question of which I prefer. OBVIOUSLY, YMMV. And also OBVIOUSLY, I prefer advance :p
I promise my other explanations won't be as verbose XD
I also ship...
CafeMochaShipping - DentxSatoshi
Dwah, this ship is turning into my BW OTP - and has already transcended Palletshipping as my second favorite Satoshi ship, HAHA.
I consider this ship to be one-sided on Dent's side for the moment (and would be surely two-sided if Dent goes really seme on Satoshi), and I LOVED it from the second I saw the fanart for it. Seriously, CafeMocha has some awesome fanart. cafemochashipping.tumblr.com if you would like to see it.
I also <3 it because Dent's interactions with Satoshi are nothing short of cute. "I'm going wherever you're going, Satoshi." D'awww. I think this ship is particularly interesting because of where Dent falls on the scale of idealism to realism/cynicism. He's not a cynic by any means; but he just prefers to do things the SUPER SPECIAL AWESOME scientific way; and he strikes me as the type that has to justify everything he sees and says. The fact that he idealizes Satoshi makes it veeerrrryy obvious that Dent breaks all of his rules of the universe when it comes to Satoshi. Maybe it's because Dent doesn't know he's in love with Satoshi yet.
Negaishipping - SatoshixIris
Their banter is so adorable! I can imagine their relationship being really playful and just squee. Plus I like how Iris isn't afraid to call Satoshi out on his shit. I can imagine their dates being like... Stargazing or something. Adorbs. They have really cute chemistry.
Orangeshipping - KasumixKenji
Rooting for The Nice Guy, here. And the fact that I think Kenji would actually... give Kasumi all the patience, love, and maturity that Kasumi needs. Plus he gave her a Pokemon egg to replace her other lost headpet.
Bouldershipping - SatoshixTakeshi
They just didn't want to let go, :p
Imageshipping - KasumixHaruka
Screw guys, Kasumi and Haruka will obviously show you their awesome. Putting them together just EXUDES sexiness. And who else didn't feel it during the Mastermind of Mirage Pokemon special?!
MasumiShipping - KasumixMasato
Masato was definitely into Kasumi; they bonded and it was adorable, plus it fits Kasumi's bill of liking younger guys :p
Gymshipping - KasumixTakeshi
All the more viable now that Takeshi is back at the Nibi Gym! Their friendship is so sweet.
SapphirePearl - HarukaxHikari
They're the exact same height!!! This ship is just fun.
Wishfulshipping - DentxIris
Now, I really don't like this ship that much - they interact alright, but this ship is so below Negaishipping and ColdCoffee for me that I'm really meh about it. But the fanfiction I read about it is nicely written, so this gets an honorable mention.
The chemistry of this main three has struck me way harder than any other main three has before... That I think if two hooked up the hypotenuse would be really, really sad. So I just like sticking them all together. :p
Rocketshipping - MusashixKojirou
Now, I'm not the hugest fans of the rockets. But it's so obvious that Musashi and Kojirou pretty much LIVE for each other. The episodes dedicated to them in DP made me squeal.
Questshipping - MarinaxKenta
I rewatch the legend of thunder JUST for their scenes. SO. FREAKING. CUTE. and it's obvious kenta's loved marina all his life!
Main Character/Rival x Rival - Be prepared for lots of Hikari ships now, haha.
Palletshipping - ShigeruxSatoshi
NOSTALGIA FACTOR, plus this ship is way too hot to ignore. I'm a diehard oldrivalshipper, so I thought it was interesting that I really, really like palletshipping. It must be the childhood friends thing? And the fact that Shigeru is really freaking sexy? The RedxGreen-ness of this ship is also awesome. There's some kickass fanart for it.
Comashipping - SatoshixShinji
I think, in a way, Shinji LIKES pushing Satoshi's buttons. and would totally pwn him in romance. The tension is AMAZING.
Coldcoffeeshipping - ShinjixJun
Totally cute seeing how Jun is such a fanboy.
Collideshipping - JunxSatoshi
"I'M GOING TO FINE YOU IF YOU DON'T MAKE LOVE TO ME!" Yeah. The fantasies that go into supporting this pairing.
Veilstoneshipping - KouheixShinji shinneth did it
Penguinshipping - HikarixKengo
Kengo BORED ME TO TEARS as a character, but I started rooting for him quite a bit when he challenged Satoshi to a battle to win Hikari's heart. I feel like he's been in love with her all of his life, and, just, aww, what if the cute girl got with the not-so-spectacular everyman? Go Kengo! Win your girl :p
Ikarishipping - HikarixShinji
Now, I considered this ship to be utter crack for a while, but I've grown to REALLY like it, because I've actually read decent fanfiction on the subject. Hikari is such a genki girl that I don't think Shinji would ever faze her; and her charm would eventually break him down.
Twinleafshipping - HikarixJun
Was/Is my favorite DP ship for a while. I think it's just so cute! Hikari interacted with Satoshi's rivals so amazingly that I ship her with every single one. But her interactions with Jun were especially cute because she's so energetic and chipper -- and so is he. I especially liked when she mocked him during the Futaba festival arc. And I totally ship their parents too, so big win there.
HeatTagshipping - HikarixKouhei
Creepy, nerdy guy + girly girl. Plus it's already half canon. :p I find them SO cute.
Cavaliershipping - HikarixShigeru
This ship is a little bit different in the sense that I think that Hikari wouldn't actually be the dominant force in the relationship. I especially like it because Hikari seemed like such a fangirl. I can imagine her writing hearts on her notebook with Shigeru's name in them, or trying to come up with senryuu. Her fangirling over Shigeru's "poetry" was really adorable.
Againstshipping - NozomixShinji
Now, I feel like if Shinji could find out that Nozomi is now a Top Coordinator, that he'd respect her a little, at least. Nozomi clearly HATED Shinji, but I think this ship is viable based off mutual respect.
Respectshipping - SatoshixShuu
Speaking of respect, xp, another reason why I would like ^. Also, this ship is SEXY. And both of them can just be like Oh fuck Haruka let's just fuck each other. KYAA~
Appealshipping - HikarixNozomi
Their interactions were so full of touchy-feely-blushy moments that they're not even rivals, really, but BFFZsistuhs. It's REALLY cute.
I'd like to think that Shuu's primary coordinator motivations have something to do with Saori. If you get my drift.
Tensionshipping - ShuuxHarley
I can TOTALLY imagine Harley going REALLY REALLY uke for Shuu. *laughs maliciously*
I read a really cute fic with them in it once! :3
Curtainshipping - SumomoxReiji
It's awesome :3
Conjunctionshipping - SaturnxMars
I liked it because the fanart looks really good, but the way he held her back...
JohtoFestShipping - KazunarixKotone
Kotone kind of annoyed me throughout her run in the anime, but I still lovelovelove this pairing
Nevermets: all of my justifications for these are the same: they'd be awesome:
DentxKasumi, Waterflowershipping (ShuuxKasumi), Belleshipping (ShuuxHikari), Oystershipping (KasumixHikari), Mizuchi (KasumixIris), some others that I can't think of at the moment
HOLY CRAP THAT WAS JUST ANIME.
I'll make a new list for PokeSpe/the Games but I think I would Go WAY WAY WAY WAYYYYYY over count limit. AHAHA.
Games (Note that for some of these I use the Pokespe names just out of preference, but I am talking about the game continuity here. xD)
BurningLeaf (Red x Leaf): This is probably my game OTP, since it's personal to me. I'm a girl and FR was my first Pokemon game and I had a friend who's a guy got LG a week or two later after seeing me play FR. We played them A LOT, so I got so attached to Red and Leaf. Heck, when I eventually got my guide for the games I wrote what we named our trainers on their hats on the cover of it. :P This was one of my first ships and I'm still into it.
Newbark (Gold x Cyrs): I got into this around the same time as BurningLeaf, but I'm not as much into it as much as I was. I was big on Johto at the time so it just clicked. xD I guess I could just imagine them hanging under the moonlight on Mt. Moon on Mondays. (... I think it was Monday the Clefariy came out, at least. xD)
SoulSilver (Silver x Lyra): This is the ship that made me appreciate Lyra more. After I beat HGSS, I was obsessed with this ship and drew it every night before I went to sleep. xD Like Newbark, I'm not that huge on it anymore. I still like it, though. I just loved that scene where Silver wanted to team up with Lyra. <3 Not to mention the Radio Tower scene. Awesome fan art helped me get into this ship. This is the only Player Character x Rival ship I like, unless the one listed directly below this counts.
Hoenn (Brendan x May): I wasn't really huge in this ship at first, I just went with it to match my usual Player Character x Player Character habits. After reading Pokespe, though, my FranticShipping kind of crossed continuities. :P The part where Brendan wishes you saw Rayquaza with him was pretty cute, though.
Fortune (Lucas x Dawn): Kind of like HoennShipping for me at the beginning, only reading Pokespe didn't really make it better. xD More complimenting my Player Character x Player Character stuff.
Chess (Black x White): ... Even though I was the one who initially posted that Black's name was Hilbert with that image since I got my game March 1st, I'm still not used to that name. >:C (Then again I'm still not used to Gold's new name and it's been over a year. xD) Ok, enough with ranting, onto shipping.
At first, I wasn't really sure on what BW ships to go with. I started to lean towards Chess with moar of my Player Character x Player Character ships, but I wasn't settled yet. Rocking fan art helped get me into Chess and I just decided to go with it by the time I got BW. Plus, I could just see them going along so well with Undella Town's spring/fall/winter music. :D
N x FERRIS WHEEL: Yes, I ship this. Since I'm a ChessShipper and I dislike FerrisWheelShipping, I had no one to ship N with. I just decided to go with N x Klink for the heck of it, but then I got into this with someone's comment while browsing YouTube videos. When you meet N next to the Ferris wheel, he says "I love Ferris wheels. The circular motion... The mechanics..." ... IT'S CANON, NOW BOW DOWN TO IT.
Beach(Hero x Partner PMD2): ... I have no idea what to think of you if you've played PMD2 and didn't baw your eyes out when the strong bond you formed with your partner just ended like that. Hands down OTP for spin-offs. (I also support the PMD1 version, but to a lesser extent.)
Rend (Grovyle x Shiny Celebi): Hey Celebi. You're blushing. You're not crushing over Grovyle, rightttttt, I'll believe that. :P Not to mention Grovyle panicking over what could've happened to Celebi in the last special episode.
Colosseum (Wes x Rui) Admittedly, I haven't gone back and fully played Colo until the end of the main game since it first came out when I was in... 2nd grade, when I obviously wasn't into shipping. Even then, though, I did imagine some shippy moments. :P I'd always imagine Rui (... or was it Wes) being trapped in that cage-like thing in the Under, and then the other using a Bayleef to save them with a vine.
Pokespe (Most of which you'll see are just the counterparts of my game shippings. xD)
Frantic(Ruby x Sapphire): Pokespe OTP. <3 It's canon. What else is there to say? :D
Lucky (Blue/Green (girl) x Red): I'm not as huge on this as its game counterpart, BurningLeaf, but I still thought their interactions were cute. :3
Commoner (Dia x Platina): Like its game counterpart, Fortune, I'm not that huge on it, but I still kind of like it.
Agency (Black x White): I just love that scene where White starts thinking that she says Black's name a lot. <3 Not to mention Black seems kind of like White's protector since she doesn't know a thing about battling. Not to mention there's still going to be a lot of hints since we're only so early into the BW arc! :D
I really have no idea how I'm going to ship up the Johto trio so I won't list anything. xD
Quest (Jimmy x Marina): Obvious Shipping was obvious. Even Typhlosion knew.
... Even though anime shippings in general are pretty much the most popular, this is really the only anime ship I support, and even then it's pushed aside for its game counterpart, Newbark, which that itself I don't pay much attention to. xD
"We understand ideals like love and dreams
But reality in front of your eyes isn't so easy." ♪
Ontherocksshipping:(cress/Hilda)- after the game is over he wishes they had known she needed help so they could come and help her, I know it's not strong evedence it just when ever I play the games I over romanticize what they say to make it romantic
Soulsilver:(Silver/Lyra oppisites attract plus he took off her rocket uniform at the radio tower...
ferriswheel:(Hilda/N)- oppisites attract even though it contradicts my favorite ship (the first one) I mean he is black and she is white they were ment for each other though I still like her with Cress..
YEAHGOCRASHERWAKE(chasher wake/himself)- for giggles
Ikarishipping(paul/dawn)- the only anime ship I am a die-hard fan of. opppisites attract, I have to say I am a sucker for oppisite attract ships.
pokeshipping(ash/misty)- the one that started it all... It is ovious, I quote "Someday we will be married Ash" do I need to say more?
Contestshipping(Drew/May)-I mean again ovious he gives her roses for cryin out loud!
Teashipping(daisy/bill)- don't they live together now? Or am I mistaken?
whatever yellow and red is called- didn't she admitt to it? And the way he was carring her when they were turned to stone or whatever? Gotta love it.
whatever ruby and saphire is called- Again didn't they admit to it? If they flat out admit to it I ship it.
whatever green(the girl) and silver is called- they spent their childhood together escaped together something has to blossom.
fautherlyshipping (Falker and Janie) "when ever they think of their fauthers they think of there love" I give credit to Snoaz on fanfic,com for that one.
what ever victini/tepig is- that is how I ship it my game
HSOWA (skitty/wailord)- It's a classic and for laughs
whatever litwick and deerling is- how I ship it in my game
I've got four I adamantly support, listed below. In most cases I also support their signature Pokemon together as well.
Pokeshipping Ash and Misty just seemed to have a lot of chemistry and had a lot of great times together in the anime. They just seem perfect together to me, Misty being the bit of a hothead she is and Ash being the happy-go-lucky guy.
AlexandrianShipping Jasmine and Volkner are both soft-spoken but strong-hearted and the fact they both live in an ocean port near a lighthouse is cute, plus the fact Jasmine arrives in Volkner's city in D/P/Pt. They seem like they'd get along well and I like the idea of Volkner possibly giving Amphy to Jasmine. I also ship Luxray and Ampharos because of this pairing.
IgnitionShipping Volkner and Flint, just because they seem like such good friends and have been together for so long. They make a cute couple! Flint always seems to worry about Volkner and like to cheer him up, it's obvious he really cares about him. I ship Flareon and Jolteon together too.
Omertashipping Cress and Chili, not just because they're pretty boys but it just seems so perfect, incest aside. Cress is the cool, suave guy and Chili is an energetic radical. I love the combination of red and blue and fire and water also. I also ship their pokemon.
Just Doomsdayshipping (James x Aqua... don't ask), Heattagshipping (Dawn x Conway), Ikarishipping (I SUPPORT TWO xD Dawn cheats Dawn x Paul), Ash/Angie (The name slips my mind), and Ferriswheelshipping (Touko x N).
That's all I can think of now.
I kissed you in the water and made your dry lips sing
I saw you look like a Japanese baby
In an instant I remembered everything...
Yes! Finally get to remake my list. Okay, let's get to work!
PokeShipping-Does this one really need an explaination? Ash & Misty just gel together so well, whether they're arguing or getting along. Classic ship! NeoEeveeEvolutionShipping-Gary & Sakura of the Eeveelution sisters from Johto. Wish I could elaborate. Something about the two just interest me in putting them together. CheekyShipping-Max & Mira as a couple. The two little tykes would be cute together, no doubt. But they're also very smart (Max w/ his booksmarts on Pokemon & Mira being able to trick Ash, Brock, & Dawn into helping her & Team Rocket in order to escape as well) so I think they'd get along pretty well too. SnarkyShipping-Trip & Ursula. The name says it all. Their interactions would be interesting to say the least, but if they ever ran into Ash & Co. at the same time they would definitely have enough in common to start something. Atleast I think. LuckShipping-Brock & Lucy the Frontier Brain. She's one of the few girls to actually have feelings for him. And even though Brock falls for nearly every chick he sees, he seemed to have a somewhat more.....deepened interest in Lucy. CuisineShipping-Cilan & May having a relationship is definitely one of my favorites. Cilan's gentleman-like nature would definitely win May over, & May has such a great attitude & presence around her there's no doubt these two would get along easy. Being a bona-fide chef would be the deal breaker as May's love of restaurants & gourmet food matches perfectly w/ this side of Cilan. AgainstShipping-Paul & Zoey as a couple is something I really do see happening. Paul's encounter w/ Zoey wasn't the best, but being the strong-willed person that Zoey is she's got to be one of the few girls that won't back down from someone like Paul. Paul's loss to Ash seems to have ignited some sort of respectful side to Paul & I think that could be the key to Paul & Zoey's relationship. She seems like the type of girl that would mellow him out atleast a bit, & being a less critical person than he was before, Paul & Zoey could get along quite well. ChocolateCoffeeShipping-Barry & Iris would have great interactions IMO. Both having quite the reputation for being hasty & wild, I can't help but feel this would be the basis for their relationship. Being competitive w/ each other almost in a manner similar to PokeShipping. Not to mention all the times Iris would strike Barry as a kid, & everytime she does Barry will try to fine her. XD Very cute coupling to say the least. ShootsCloneShipping-Kenny & Leona as a couple seemed a bit strange to me at first but eventually I began to like it. Never shown in the anime, but I always wondered what Leona thought of Kenny's crush on Dawn. She might be a bit jealous, & Kenny might take notice of this. Pure fanficness, yes. But, the idea always seemed plausible & very cute to me. BelleShipping-Drew & Dawn together. Man, ask any shipper & they'll tell you it's not easy finding the right guy for Dawn! But this ship always felt right for some reason. To see Dawn react in such a fangirl-like manner to May (who, despite being well embedded as a star among Coordinators, falls a little behind in popularity when Drew is involved) shows she follows coordinators outside of Sinnoh, making it possible she's atleast heard of Drew. I can only imagine how she would react to actually meeting him! Drew, probably seeing her as another fangirl, wouldn't think much of her. But after Dawn sees the snobbish side of Drew, she'll just blow him off (don't think wrong here). Drew then finds out that Dawn is independant & strong enough of a coordinator herself & will come to respect her. That could be a good start to their relationship.

Here's my list of ships (for Anime and not too many either):
PokeShipping (Ash x Misty) - I like it because I grew up with it. I thought Ash and Misty liked each other when I was younger so I always stay loyal to it ^^
Contestshipping (May x Drew) - Always thought it was cute and it was sweet how Drew would always give May a rose. Also how the two would argue (like in the Mirage Island episode)
Wishfulshipping (Dento x Iris) (OTP) - Oh man. I just love these two. Probably the first time I've ever gotten into a ship this much XD and it just all started because they reminded me of Ruby and Sapphire when I first saw them (which I like Franticshipping a lot as well) at first it was just a joke that I shipped them together, but after seeing how Dento and Iris were pure opposites of each other but still get along in a harmonic sense they just seem to be perfect for one another (like how they worked together in the Cottonee episode to find the wind) they also remind me of Reshiram and Zekrom a lot =/ but obviously Dento and Iris didn't come from one being.

Hmm I only watch the anime so my shippings come from the anime
ContestShipping: because it was seriously the only one close to becoming cannon. I also like them because of there cute little arguments and how sweet it was that Drew gave her those roses.
Pearlshipping: because opposites attract, I have always believed this from the beginning. They got a little closer then some of those girls besides misty.
Handyman Shipping: Because I believe the minor couples need love! I think Tracy could be like a brock and just go after Daisy like that.
EgoShipping: my first favorite couple! Everybody expects the main character [ash] to get together with the herione [misty]. But I like it the other way when the herione goes to the bad guy-slash- snob turns around to be good guy [gary] and they get together. This is also the reason why i like zutara.
GFChampShipping: Again minor couples need love@ They seem to be like the golden couple. Sure they're not perfect but they are doing a great job hiding their flaws. I also think Harley would go gay at one point and not get together with solidad.
I find it harder to find reasons for shippers in the game other than made up fantasies, but I'll try my best to explain, enjoy!
Grimsley & Burgh, Marshal: Grimsley is a dark-trainer, and as we call know, dark is weak to bug and fighting - which are Burgh's and Marshal's trainer-type. I find that very nice, and Grimsley being afraid of bugs is the cutest thing ever. His design also looks very good and hot.
Volkner & Lucas: I don't find an explanation for this ship really, but I like it. Lucas is often portrayed (at least in the fanart, haha) as shy, young and small while Volkner is more adult and care-taking; yeah, you get the picture. It's very cute.
Steven & Brendan/Ruby: I've heard that they have some connection that could make them a shipper in R/S/E gameplay, but I seriously don't remember, yet I love them both. Great design and both seem to act pretty "cool".
These three are sort of my "main" shippers. But I also like;
Morty & Eusine: Before I just enjoyed them because of their great design but for some day ago, I saw the anime episode and sooo fell in love with it even more. Seem like they have know each other from before and you can just feel their chemistry, at least I can, hah!
Archie & Maxie: I like to ship contrasts! The whole thing with two teams fighting against each other, water and fire; kinda says it all.
Wallance & Steven: No explanation really, except they seem to have been friends for a long time according to the fanart. Both are also champion at some time.
For friendship or non-sexuality, I like to ship these;
N & Touya: I like this ship because of the storyline in B/W, Touya isn't on N's side, but still N respect him very much and there is so many other "hints" that N actually like Touya. Somehow, I've hard to see them as a sexual relationship.
Ash & Latias: I haven't seen much of the anime, but the fifth movie gives a nice relationship between Latias and Ash. Latias is so cute towards Ash and he seem to really like her, then she turns out to be a Pokémon, but that's just sooo Ash, for some reason, hahah!
Tobias & Darkrai: Tobias and his lovely Darkrai totally own Ash! I love the way Tobias act and his character reminds of Darkrai. A very cool team in my eyes.
Morty & Gengar: According to the fanart, these two are so adorable! Also in that Eusine-episode, Gengar and Morty seem very like a very nice team.
Mewtwo & Mew: This is probably my favorite ship among friendship-ship. They're contrast and yet so alike. In the first movie; Mewtwo is sort of badass, evil, dark, yeah, you know. While Mew is sweet and cute and make Mewtwo realize what's right and then they travel away together, HOW CUTE.
Zekrom & Reshiram: Contrasts again. Black and white. I just like it.
Pokeshipping ~ Ash/Misty ~ Why? Out of all the people that Ash has interacted with, I always felt that out of the ones he wasn't related to and knew before going on his journey, cared about him the most. They also seem to connect at a level that I don't think any other travelling companion has reached yet. Also, their number of hints is overwhelmingly positive.
Contestshipping ~ May/Drew ~ Because I find their relationship adorable. He gives her roses, but says that they're for her Beautifly. There are many guys in the real world who'll do similar things around objects of their affection. Also, they're relationship reminds me of some I've seen in real life.
Ikarishipping ~ Dawn/Paul ~ I know that the stereotypical "cold, heartless guy with a warm, bubbly girl," has been done to death, but I think that eventually (over months/years, if Dawn has the patience for that sort of thing), Dawn could begin to warm his more or less non-existant heart.
Flavescentshipping ~ Iris/Trip ~ An odd one, I know, but I do like it. A calm, reserved, guy and a hyper, arrogant girl is an interesting couple, but since B&W just started, I don't really have much to go on.
Hypershipping ~ Barry/Bianca ~ Shipping two people who are ridiculously similar is kind of fun. They obviously have differences (Barry loves fining people, Bianca's unreliable), but I love to see how they'd react to each other in the Anime.
Advanceshipping (Ash/May): My OTP. The way they interact with each other may me thinks there are more between them than simple friendship especially during movie 9 with Manaphy. Also, Ash supports May from the very beginning and he help her choose her own path as a coordinator. Pokeshipping (Ash/Misty): The very first ship I liked. I've always loved they way they argued like an old married couple and the arrival of Tracey with his teasing didn't help. Even if Advanceshipping is my favorite ship now, Pokeshipping will always have a special place in my heart. Orangeshipping (Tracey/Misty): My other Misty ship. They are great together and since Misty has become Cerulean Gym Leader, she has more chance to see and spend time with Tracey than with Ash. Cavaliershipping (Gary/Dawn): Since I'm not really fond of Pearlshipping (sorry Pearlshippers but I see Ash and Dawn more with a sibling relationship), I tend to put Gary and Dawn together. Dawn is in admiration before him because of his grandfather and how Gary is embarrassed by it. Luckshipping (Brock/Lucy): Lucy is one of the very few girls who is know to have returned Brock's feelings and the situation is lightly different for Brock as well since he didn't ask if could live her but if she want to travel with him. Sometimes, I wonder what may have happen if Max didn't dragged Brock away. Questshipping (Jimmy/Marina): It's oblivious that the two have feelings for each other. Even Vincent ask Jimmy about it and other characters seems to notice it like Jimmy's Typhlosion.
SoulSilvershiping (Silver/Lyra): I like Lyra from the start and Silver and her are perfect opposite but 'Opposite attract'. Some moments in the games are cute too like the tag battle in the Dragon's Den. ChessShipping (Hilbert/Hilda): This one is mostly due of all the fanart I've seen of them. Nevertheless, I think they would be great together.
Specialshipping (Red/Yellow): Yellow has on crush Red probably since the day he saved her from the wild Dratini. Also, when Red finally learns that Yellow is a girl, he is completely speechless and he carried her in the ending of the FRLG chapter. Franticshipping (Ruby/Sapphire): One of the canon couple of the Pokemon universe. When they met, they didn't like each other but, after some time, this dislike become love when they realize that the other was, in fact, they childhood friend they were looking for. Commonershipping (Diamond/Platinum): When Dia saw Platinum for the first time, he thought of her as a princess which is not completely far from the true. Also, Platinum often laughs at his jokes even if she quickly denies it to Pearl each time she does it.

Pearlshipping (Ash/Dawn) You heard me. I used to be a hardcore Pokéshipper, but it faded over time somewhat. It just seems almost more natural than Ash/Misty. Orangeshipping (Misty/Tracey) This one came along with Pearlshipping, to fill the Pokéship gap. Luckshipping (Brock/Lucy) She returned his affection. End of discussion. Contestshipping It seems almost canon, and heck, you know they liek each other. ;) Wishshipping I dunno, just the thought of Max playing with Jirachi.... Wishfulshipping This somewhat fits with opposites attract, but I might change this one soon. Heattagshipping This is one of my favorite ships, sorry Ash/Paul/Gary+Dawn shippers. ^_^ It's honestly hilarious, the fact the Conway stalks Dawn like no tomorrow. Pokéshipping Like Pearlshipping, it was natural to begin with, but now they're not getting any attention. I have shipped this since I first saw the anime- boom- "Now they'll kiss.... now! No.... now!" Questshipping This is my all-time favorite ship. They seem perfect, they actually do like each other, and everyone knows it. Poor Vincent....
