Pokémon Animé Shipping Debates Bylaws



Introduction



The purpose of this thread is to provide a sort of 'lounge'/'courtroom'/'bar' for Discussions/Debates/Barfights, Otherwise known as the Two D's and a B, for us members that hold the interest of Shipping in the Pokémon Animé. Our mission is to provide a comfortable Microcommunity for us members under that subset of Shippers.

Shipping



Obligatory CopyPasta from Bulbapedia, the Content Free Encyclopedia.

Quote:
Shipping (short for "relationshipping"; カップリング Coupling in Japanese) is the belief that two characters in the Pokémon universe are in a relationship, or have romantic feelings that could potentially lead to a relationship. It is generally used as a suffix attached to a word related to a pair of characters (like in PokéShipping).
For example, a person who would like to see Ash and Misty as boyfriend and girlfriend would be a PokéShipper, and as a PokéShipper, he or she would support PokéShipping. In addition to "shipping," and "shipper," there are "ship," which is a word for the pairing itself, and "shippy," which is used as an adjective. For example, if Ash and Misty kissed, that moment would be considered PokéShippy.

Grammar



More obligatory CopyPasta from Bulbapedia, the Content─*shot* I MEAN, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia!

Quote:
Noun
ship (pairing) : Example: "I support that ship." means "I support that pairing."

Adjective
shippy (supports a ship) : Example: "That hug was shippy." means "That hug makes them look like a couple."

Verb
shipping (action of supporting a ship) : Example: "I enjoy Pokéshipping." means "I enjoy supporting Ash and Misty as a couple."

Verb (infrequent use)
ship (action of supporting a ship) : Example: "Do you ship?" means "Do you support that/any pairing(s)?"

Person
shipper (supporter of a ship) : Example: "We are all shippers of that couple." means "We are all supporters of that pairing."

Thread Rules



Now for the meat of the Bylaws, the thread rules.

Pokémon Anime Forum Rules and the global Community Rules all govern



That means read them if you haven't yet.

Name Calling is not allowed



Ignorant fools

Drifting off topic is strongly discouraged



For us old prunes, this was sort of a problem. But now it's got it's comfy place in the rules. This is mostly in effect because of some disastrous results in unneeded debates/barfights

Fan art cannot be obscene



This extends just a little bit beyond the 'No Hentai' rule in the global rules. This rule also ensures posted fan art is not strongly suggestive. For example:

Acceptable:
  • Having Fun
  • Kissing
  • Anything below the PG-13 level

Unacceptable:
  • Borderline 'strip'ish pictures
  • 'Humanified' Pokemon
  • Innappropriate touching
  • Illegal themes (This DOES NOT restrict the concept of them unusual age shippings, but does restrict content a bit more than normal concerning those ships)
  • Anything that is clearly in the hentai level

Balance of Power



This section will probably be heavily revised, but this is how power is spread:

Kirbychu: Complete control and moderation (obviously)
AdvancdK47: Control, and Mastermind
Jorah: Evil Second in command
Ruby: Angelic Second in command
TheSmartOne: Lonely Cafemochashipper
Everyone else: The Report Button

...yeah, don't take this section too seriously >__>

Ooh, fresh thread. All right.

Err, so I'm gonna continue with the fanfiction theme since Mew~ didn't actually say anything. :P First, to say thank you to all of you who liked my fic <3 And second, to say I've been seeing some good HonorShipping fics, but can't find them anymore. ;-;

But you know, Negaishipping hasn't really had a full debut here, regardless of it being a 'mainstream' ship. :P

I don't know, if you're really into the shipping, reading fanfics that follow it might be pretty interesting to read. Better than reading something you're not interested in anyway.

/Me likes the new thread by the way. :]

I'm honored AK47. I wonder what were the last things said in the old thread.

Oh she still might say how Ash still doesn't have a chance against her, blah blah blah, if Ash asks her again.

Yeah, AK47, put in a link to the old shipping thread and the ancient shipping thread in the first post like you did last time.

Old shipping thread http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=216298
Ancient shipping thread http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=33766

I like how you refer to some of the "debates" as barfights XD

Now, I wonder if there are any good fanfics with N in?

And, of course, I'll rate the thread as 5 stars.~

Hell yeah! The new shipping debates thread deserves a one start rating from me~! Maybe that would change in the future. ;D

I'm sure when Ash loses to Aloe, he will get a nice lecture from Iris about type advantages and stuff. No love. :3

Meh. Dento would probably just be annoyed at him. Since he could beat him but not Aloe.

I think the thread deserves five stars, so yeah. *Rates 5 stars*

I actually don't see Dento as that type of guy. ):

He might just be like Brock and give him some sort of comfort words or words of motivation. Iris on the other hand, I can see lecturing him, haha.

Cute couple.

Watching more Sinnoh league episodes. Conway and Dawn actually blush at each other XD Conway is *so* creepy. He tells Dawn his unpredictability is part of his appeal XDDDD He only says bye to Dawn XD And Barry: "It's lonely at the top, but Paul's there to keep me company". So cute. Ohhh, so much Paul fanboying in this. XD

Spoiler:
Barry: Ash, wow, it seemed the more that I battled Paul, the more fired up I got!
Ash: I know! Paul seems to get everyone feeling that way!

Pffftttt... I thought the bit where Paul leaves very comashippy. (After Ash wins and Paul decides to leave before the league ends.)

Heattagshipping is awsome. Even though Conways such a perv, they go so well together.

Cue "Burn the Witch!".

Ok so we left off in the old thread about fanfics. I always feel uncomfortable reading them because the characters have personality that the anime doesn't give. One guy used to make really good fanfics (although he was an Advanceshipper). They were very nice to read simply because of the fact that Ash isn't 10 in them.

How about we change "ancient" to "primal"? Or "original"?

Are the Dawn and Conway added bits by the dub? (just like the P.S. in Dawn's note)

^ Oh wow, so we actually both agree that it's weird reading Pokemon fanfics for the exact same reason XD

And thinking about that makes me want to watch the Dawn/Conway parts subbed, I wonder how different it was in Japanese~

*looks back at old thread* Oh, Vernikova edited to mention the infamous "A Day Inside May". I never read it, but I heard that crazy Scott guy from bmgf wrote it. People used to bring it up randomly in bmgf's Pokemon anime section to him from time to time, and people seemed to be weirded out by it. I feel like I have to read it sometime, just to find out how weird that guy was, though. Although his debates in their Pokemon anime section were good, when you ended up thinking about how he was dedicating so much time and effort to debating a children's cartoon show, he did seem a pretty weird guy.

*looks at first post again* OK, so now it's been edited that I'm the evil second in command? lol

Say what? Are we talking about the same Scott as in Scott85? That guy actually does something else other than Johto-hatin'? Does his fanfic have a lot of Johto hate? Cause that's what he was all about. Got banned by all his complaining.

Okay AK47 now you just pushed it with "angel". -_-

Yeah, that Scott. He's known as CyberCubed on Serebii. As well as his Johto hating side, he also had his May fanboying side. And so, "A Day Inside May". No, it's not about Johto hating, it's NC-17 (is that the right American rating?) soo, I'm thinking the title is a pretty good bet what it's about. Wow, I didn't know he got banned from bmgf

Awwww, Ruby angel XDDDD

I don't really think Ash likes him at all, thats why I don't support it... so yeah.

I like cookies. And cake... Oh! Coca-cola. /random

Im looking through the old shipping thread to reply to stuff that was posted before I joined. xD

Ak47, is this why you don't support Gay shippings then?
Quote originally posted by AdvancedK47:
You are relying too much on fandom. Face reality, there will be no homosexual shippings in any of this franchise, period. Now go drink your evening coffee cause I need to chill before I hit my brother.
Homophobe Funny how the coffee thing fits with the whole cafémoch situation.

Quote originally posted by vernikova:
Are you saying that Pokéshipping is most likely? Your reason is just illogical.

Pokéshipping is a never will.
If anything it is the most likely if anything it had the most hints, and Ash and Misty were much more closer then he is to May or Dawn. (Excluding Iris since she hasn't been in for long)

Quote originally posted by AK47:
Now the only hope for ash is Hikari( Dawn) They look soo cute together, While misty is way too tall and old for ash, I don't even think misty should bother to be even mentioned of in the anime.
Heh, looks like you were wrong. Mwahahahaha.

What does age have to do with shippings anyway? That arguement is far too overused.
I agree. Ash will never age anyway.

The ghost of christmas past will be back with more tommorow, to taunt you all.
