Any name suggestions for Go/Koharu (at least the latter character will receive a new name in the English dub)?

Not yet... frankly, I think it's too early to say because they lack dub names. If I had to suggest one, I'd go with ShunkiShipping, though ("shunki" roughly translates to "spring air" in Japanese). Then I'd call the pairing of Scorbunny (Gou's) & Yamper (Koharu's) YapScurryShipping.

Oh! I did come up with a name for Ash & Gou. How's Get-GoShipping sound? :D

Someone suggested RawGloryShipping for Piers & Gloria over at Bulbagarden. It doesn't appear to be taken...

If we came up with potential ship names in this thread, should we submit them to the list revival ourselves, or have you already done so?

The best thing to do at the moment is to post any submissions you have here for the time being, so we have them datestamped for future reference. We still need to collect and process a lot of data from the last two years. If you've made any submissions to the Tumblr extension between July 2017 and November 2019, please post a list of them either here or in the Bulbagarden thread, and I'll add them as I can process them and resolve the conflicts.

I did submit ship names into the Tumblr extension, and I also made a corresponding post in this thread each time I did it. I think there was about 2 or 3 posts? So my part's already done, I guess. Hope the list wrangling goes smoothly for you!

I wouldn't say it's strictly required, but if people could make a master list of their own submissions, it would be much appreciated!

Hello. I'm currently writing a fic for Leon x Sonia. I wanna know if this pair already has a given name and what that name is.
No, there is currently no name for the pairing of Leon & Sonia. You are free to come up with your own. (...I think SeparatePathsShipping would do, but I also feel advocates/fans of ships (especially popular ones) should have the final say in determining their favorite pairings' names.)

On that note, I have three more suggestions for pairings I've seen fics written for since the games' release:

- BloomingOnionShipping (Allister & Milo) - Yes, I'm proposing that we name a ship after the signature Outback Steakhouse appetizer dish. I can't believe I came up with this... but I can't deny perfection. (Then again, I'm the person who suggested we call Mohn & Lusamine "MeanBeanShipping".)

- SeaFuryShipping (Bea & Nessa) - ...Just seems fitting.

- OutcomeShipping (Leon & Raihan) - Surprised this wasn't taken, but dang this pairing deserves a short name that's to the point.

Some others:

- DrivenShipping (Leon & Victor) RulerApparentShipping (Leon & Victor) - I wanted something to go with its companion ship.
- ImpartShipping (Leon & Gloria) DethronedShipping (Leon & Gloria) - Someone coined it on AO3.
- EndorsementShipping (Bede & Chairman Rose)

Dandy, but I'm really bad at giving names, so I won't be taking the chance. I hope someone creative will would do the honor.

- EndorsementShipping (?) - Someone use this one!
I'd give this one for Hop & either Victor or Gloria. Endorsement is a fitting word for this pairing since they're endorsed by Leon. For the sake of romantic appropriateness though, I'd pick Gloria over Victor.

I did say I'm bad at giving names, but I'm taking a shot on this one instead:

EdgyShipping (Gladion & Marnie) - name is based on their appearance.

I checked. Dandy's taken.

I did say I'm bad at giving names, but I'm taking a shot on this one instead:

EdgyShipping (Gladion & Marnie) - name is based on their appearance.
It's already Gladion & Silver (game).

Here's some more suggestions:

NepotismShipping (Bede & Hop & Marnie) - They're all relatives of people in important positions.
DisruptShipping (Team Yell Grunt (Male) & Team Yell Grunt (Female))
ClimbingHazardShipping (Arlo (GO) & Cliff (GO))
SheepShipping (Mareep & Wooloo)
JoustShipping (Escavalier & Sirfetch'd)
CrowShipping (Corviknight & Honchkrow)
DireWolfShipping (Zacian & Zamazenta)
ForbiddenDragonShipping (Eternatus & Giratina)

If this hasn’t already been said, I’d like to suggest DoubleSweetRivalShipping (Hop x Marnie)

Both of them are just so sweet. And while Hop is loud and energetic, Marnie is quiet and shy. I feel like these two need a ship

Hello! I'd like to submit:

PastelGothShipping - Marnie & Lillie
What a perfect name! It's not taken, either.

I concur. Yours is a fine name, too.

I have some more to suggest:

- BadAttitudeShipping (Bede & Gladion) - I also wanted to call this FashionDisasterShipping, but I figured I ought to save that for a Leon pairing.
- BlueStreakShipping (Nessa & Shelly) - ...I'm not the only one who thinks they look like sisters, right?
- SpookyKidsShipping (Allister & Acerola) - This would make such an adorable ship!
- TilledSoilShipping (Milo & Hapu)
- ChasingDragonsShipping (Raihan & Clair) - They can try to get acknowledged all they like, but it ain't happening.
- SolitaryDarkShipping (Nanu & Piers) - Isn't it funny how they both don't show up to gatherings?
- KamikakushiShipping (Bede & Gloria & Opal) - Okay, this one requires some explaining: I get crazy Spirited Away vibes from Bede, Opal, and Gloria. "Kamikakushi" is the Japanese term for "spiriting away".
- BloomingStoneShipping (Gordie & Milo)
- LemmeTakeASelfieShipping (Raihan & Rotomphone)
- HyakkaRyoranShipping (Bea & Maylene)
- CaturdayShipping (Meowth, Meowth (Alolan), Meowth (Galarian), Persian, Persian (Alolan) & Perrserker)
- PosseShipping (Leon & Piers & Raihan)
- PoolsideShipping (Nessa & Sonia)
- LotusRootShipping (Milo & Nessa)
- RiseUpShipping (Piers & Raihan)
- GloriousGhostShipping (Allister & Gloria)
- RawVictoryShipping (Piers & Victor)
- BurningManShipping (Kabu & Piers)
- BroodingShipping (Guzma & Piers)
- BribeShipping (Chairman Rose & Giovanni)
- EdibleShipping or ShieldExclusiveShipping (Allister & Melony) - Considering their Japanese names are "Onion" and "Melon" respectively, this was a no-brainer.
- SuplexingBouldersShipping or SwordExclusiveShipping (Gordie & Bea)
- BadHatShipping (Victor & Selene)
- GymChallengeShipping (Bede, Hop, Victor, Gloria & Marnie)
- RanglingShipping (Hop & Leon & Milo)
- FieryPoseShipping (Kiawe & Leon)
- RivalPalsShipping (Hau & Hop)

By the way, Ash & Giselle is GoggleShipping.

EDIT: It's come to my attention that "SelfieShipping" is being used for Leon & Raihan even though it's already taken. Is there any way to amend this, besides informing those using it? (Which I've gone ahead and done already.)

Also, just saying, but I already submitted SeaDragonShipping for Iris/Lana on 10/7/17.

And in general, here's that master list of all the ship names I submitted in the past several years (as I've said before, I submitted them into the Tumblr extension, and then I made a corresponding post into this thread).

Round 1:
(submitted to tumblr on 8/28/17, and the corresponding post in this thread was made on 10/7/17 (forum page 232))
1. OhanaShipping: Mom (Alola)/Wicke
2. BoneClubShipping: Kahili/Plumeria
3. PrincessAndThePauperShipping: Lillie/Plumeria
4. ChillAndClassyShipping: Dexio/Ilima
5. FairyBonesShipping: Mina/Plumeria
6. AgentResearchShipping: Anabel/Burnet
7. UltraEnergyShipping: Sun/Anabel
8. VolcanicWaterShipping: Kiawe/Misty
9. FlameDancerShipping: Kiawe/Serena
