Seeing as how some idiots people managed to post in a thread that was over 1 year old, (the old FranticShipping Club) and got it closed, I'm reviving it.

Old post:Franticshipping is the pairing/shipping/coupling in Pokémon Adventures (known as Pokémon Special in Japan) for Ruby and Sapphire, the protagonists of the fourth chapter also known as RS. This pairing is considered to be canon as both characters have confessed. However whether or not they are together is still questionable.

[edit] Ruby and Sapphire
Ruby is the main protagonist of the Fourth Chapter. He has an interest in Contests. He constantly grooms his Pokémon and croons how beautiful they are. He takes much pride in his Pokémon's appearance. At the beginning he is very shallow and tends to dislike Pokémon that are ugly. He says finds battles to be appalling. However, in truth, he happens to be excellent in battling but after a past experience has vowed to never battle in front of others again.

Sapphire is Ruby's opposite. She is described a a wild girl several times throughout the series. She doesn't care much for looks and prefers battling to contests. She is very strong and has great senses including sharp eyesight and smell. She loves Pokémon and has a great sense of pride and justice. She finds Ruby to be an annoying arrogant boy at first, but feelings soon change.

[edit] History
Although Ruby and Sapphire do not find out until much later, they knew each other as little children. Back then Ruby was a mischievous and adventurous boy who liked to battle while Sapphire was a sweet, docile, little girl who like pretty things and disliked violence. Ruby's Father, Norman, was taking the test required for leadership of the Petalburg gym. Professor Birch, Sapphire's father, came to visit Norman bringing his little daughter along.

The two children played together. Ruby and Sapphire look back describing that time as one of the best in their lives. However it was ruined by the arrival of a wild Salamence. Ruby, to protect Sapphire, attacked the Salamence eventually driving it away. He got hurt in the process, getting a cut across the side of his forehead. When Ruby looked back to reassure Sapphire that the Salamence had gone, he was surprised to see her crying. She then said, "Scary...so scary." That becomes a huge turning point to Ruby and Sapphire. Ruby thinks that he had shocked her with how brutally he fought and has "tainted her heart." He vows never to show his true strength in front of anybody ever again. Sapphire also makes a vow. She believes it's is because of her inability to fight that got him hurt and by crying she had hurt his pride. So by becoming stronger, she planned on having the abilty to protect herself and the others around her.

Even several years later they still remember each other, however, they can't recall any faces or names. Both have even admitted to loving that childhood friend that they can't really remember anymore.

[edit] Encounters
Ruby first met Sapphire when he was saved by her from falling off a cliff. At the time she was completely covered in leaves, and he thought that she was a Pokémon. At one point he gets scared of her and orders Nana, his Poochyena, to attack. She immediately becomes violent and sends out Torchic. They both trade insults until Sapphire proposes a bet. They both have to reach their goals (Sapphire: Conquer all 8 gyms; Ruby: Conquer all contests) in 80 days. However they are interrupted by a Seviper. Sapphire tries her best to battle but eventually gets knocked out trying to protect Ruby. Ruby sees no one is watching and immediately knocks out the Seviper. While she is unconscious, he measures her and makes appropriate clothing for her so that she can get rid of the grass/leaf skirt and bra she is wearing.

They meet again in Dewford Town where Sapphire earns her Knuckle Badge and Ruby helps Steven in Granite Cave. At one point Granite Cave collapses, and Sapphire worried for Ruby's safety immediately goes to try to find him. Sadly she is thanked with a string of insults. Almost immediately the two leave to follow Steven on Sapphire's Wailord, Walo, because Sapphire had to deliver a letter to him.

Eventually both fed up with each other, they decide to take a break at the Abandoned Ship. Sapphire forces Ruby to get on the ship which is rumored to haunted while she stays on Wailulu. Here they have their first encounter with one of the evil teams, Team Magma. The two work together using a Plusle and Minun that were on the ship to escape.

They separate to meet again at Fortree City right before the massive crisis of Kyogre and Groudon. Sapphire learns that Ruby has a talent for battling as he uses his Pokémon to knock out a rampaging herd of Grumpig to save Sapphire. Sapphire is ecstatic and asks Ruby to join her and the gym leaders in the fight against evil. Ruby, however, cooly refuses saying that he's only in Hoenn for the contests and that he will return to Johto after he is done. This infuriates Sapphire to the breaking point. She rips off her clothes (Ruby immediately covers his eyes), breaks off a branch of a nearby tree to wrap around herself, and starts yeeling at Ruby about how selfish he is and how she thought he was actually a good person but she was wrong. She then runs off. Ruby rather ashamed of himself goes off to do some contests. Eventually Ruby realizes he should fight, too.

The two protagonists meet again much later to dive down to the Cave of Origin to fight Maxie and Archie who hold the Blue and Red Orbs that control Kyogre and Groudon.


I love this shipping more than anything else (except Advanceshipping)

Yeah, that was all your fault.

Of course. xD

My favorite was at Mirage Island, when Ruby locked Sapphire in the car, so that she wouldn't get hurt.

I'm sorry! I'm sorry! *Cries*

But I'm allowed to join, so weeeeee~XD

Ah yes, that. When Ruby pulls the classic, "I will take the blame for my true love". <3 I'm a sucker for that sort of thing. XD I also like it when he's sort of being protective of Sapphire in Emerald. You know, when she's all, "You! You...did that to Maxie!" In that scene, he's putting himself between her and Archie. <333

Yeah...Sorry if that last part should have been in spoilers. ;
