Rant:-- Let's try to get onto the shipper boat...  
Sorry, F-list, I know I'm spamming...xD For this reason, I make this small... o3o

As with Reborn that has numbers to represent a pairing, Pokemon has a far more complex system of shipping that absolutely makes no sense (to me) and are also a handful to type, but since I will be a good fan I will try my best to get the hang of it.

And I'm also trying to use their original names, but since I grew up with the dub and games, it's really hard to adjust...xD;

Shippings that I most likely do support:

Honorshipping: Matsuba x Hayato
Steelwingshipping: Hayato x Mikan
Resistanceshipping: Matsuba x Akane
Crystalchampionshipping: Wataru x Krisu
Oldrivalshipping: Green x Blue
Franticshipping / Hoennshipping: Ruby x Sapphire / Brendan x May (same thing right? o_O)
NeoEliteshipping: Wataru x Karin

this is the humble website that put a lot of effort to compiling the evergrowing list of pokemon everywhere...

XD If we could have a simpler system, I'm sure we'd all jump on it eventually ('shipping is a shiny toy; it'd take a while to leave). That list is a pain in the butt to handle, update, compile, dig up, hunt down, and add to...or so I've heard. The webmaster's hell when she's on her way to updating.

And to explain the Frantic/Hoenn thing, generally they aren't considered the same. ^^; People keep the manga and games/anime separate, since May doesn't act anything like Sapphire, in game or in the anime.

.....As to why I'm here, I was just googling +honorshipping. 8D Brought me here. You're awesome for liking it, btw.

Why hello, kind stranger. xD;

Somehow I wish they would just keep to the simple Name#1 x Name#2 style. D: And yeah, it's hard to imagine that person's pain... >.o; I saw a pairing of Gary and left/right hand...


Ahh, I see. xD Ahaha, I guess that explains it lol.

XD Honorshipping is epic~ -and cute, rofl- 8D

Halo thar, stranger. 8D

From a labeling POV, something like Lance/Kris is fine. But if you're actively searching it, ^_^;; googling your pairings isn't as easy, and won't get you every gem. These days, the names just made it /so/ much easier to find things if they're labeled so. Search engines snap them up like cake. That way, people will find it more easily.

XD Oh those, the 13 Gary/hand 'ships. They're fun. And /old/. Like, pre-Orange League!old. You'll find plenty of weird crud on the list.

*_* Agreed, so much. Honorshipping is epic-leik-woah and deserves so much love.

xD (sorry for extremely late reply, I had been dead. D; )

Ah yes...searching. Dx Unless you narrow it down to Pokemon, perhaps, but it's still an annoyance to get through all those pages. Lol, I agree. 8D (Yet even with it's really random search stuff, I'm still very fond of google. -coughnotreallycough-)

... it's very scary. o. o I don't even know how people would ship those together. XD

8D Yes, yes they do~ <3
