    As I'm sure you're well aware, sites aren't free to run and so we run leaderboard adverts to fund the site. These ads are often specific game ones run by Sega etc.
    To make sure we get relevant ads as much as possible, could you fill out this survey my ad network is running? It's 100% anonymous and will just help us keep relevant ads on the site
    It's open til April 3rd
    Thanks :)

"What's This Ship Called?"

    Both of these are free. You can submit whenever you'd like.

    That's already called GeneticShipping.

    I've been gone for more then 2 years, I'm willing to come back soon to name some fora (crack)shippings
    But the Neverending romance list is being updated?

    Hasn't been updated in a while... at least I don't think? Manqoba would probably know for sure.

    Neverending Romance -- The Incomplete Nightmare is a project of Bulbagarden. I don't actually have anything to do with it, though I would love to assist them if given the opportunity. The de facto custodian of the list is esm8m on BMGf. She hasn't been online since April 23, 2017 on that site, and the last official intake was a little less than a year ago, for December 2016. There are no uncirculated official copies available at this time on Dropbox, and the Dec 31 16 copy on the site is the most recent. The Tumblr has not accepted any new submissions in six months. I wouldn't call it dead, but I would dare to say that the project is overwhelmed at the moment. So, I've said it before, and I'll say it again. If you're looking for names, especially names for USUM or M20 (or M21. Jesus Christ), the best thing you can do is wait. If you're submitting names, I would advise that you make posts here first for review, then submit on the Tumblr if there isn't some kind of obvious problem and if the pairing isn't expected to be major enough to warrant a poll, like Ash x Serena or the Alola Three. The system has always been largely first-to-file, so for that reason, it would be in your best interest to not delay. That said, there's roughly a year worth of backlog at this point, so I wouldn't be expecting anything instantaneous. Honestly, if you submit a name today, I would be impressed if it's on the list by the end of the quarter.
  5. Hello everyone! Could someone please tell me the name for KiaweXLillie's ship? It's so cute but I can't find its name!

    Unfortunately, that name isn't on the latest revision of the official list. Your guess is as good as ours. You're welcome to suggest a name if you wish, though I somehow doubt you'd be the first.
  7. Oh well that's really sad.

    Would VolcanicPrincessShipping sound good for Lillie and Kiawe?

    Volcanic because of Kiawe's obsession with Wela volcano and because Lillie acts like an oujo-sama(princess/royalty)

    I actually really like the name. It is indeed free, as far as I can tell. Do you know how to submit it? I can do that for you, if you'd prefer.
  9. I have no idea how to do that, I'd really appreciate if you could do it for me!

    It's not that hard! You may hust post the name here or submit it on Tumblr, but as Manqoba said, the list haven't been updated for a while now! If you google "neverending romance tumblr" you will find it's tumblr account! :D

    Sorry, I forgot to post that I already submitted it. You don't have to do anything, KiaweXLillie4LifeLover.
  12. That's great, thank you for your help!

    It's already been what, two years since the SM games came out and still no name for Ash/Acerola?

    Consider me impressed, since I thought the first thing people did was ship Ash with every new female character, whether they're main, side, tertiary, or NPCs

    We've got RoyalGhostShipping for Ash-possessed-by-Pokélantis-King x Acerola, which is hysterical

    Almost tempted to suggest "NyAshShipping" since Acerola has a bad case of :3 going on

    I'd imagine that whatever you want to call it is what it will be. I have no idea what's going on with the list. It's been over a year since the custodian was last on Bulbagarden, and the thread for pairing names on there was deleted for some reason. It would be a shame for the project to die after so many years.

    So I recently got round to reading Diamond And Pearl Platinum manga and ended up getting curious. Could someone tell me why Gold/Platinum are Darkstoneshipping? I am re-reading Gold and Silver to get a better idea but so far, none. Help?
  16. Manqoba

    Manqoba MultiShipper

    Story reasons? Or possibly just no reason. A lot of names are like that, actually.
  17. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was a combination of both of them being named after precious gems (if you can count gold as one, which is pushing it but not too far out there) and their dark hair colour. It’s the best I’ve got really.
  18. Bubbles18

    To be honest - It's probably the precious gems and dark hair colour since I haven't found anything story-wise to indicate otherwise. (other than the original poster coming forward with their idea).

    Thanks for the help though!

    I'm not sure if you've seen this yet, but these posts show that DarkstoneShipping was originally going to be Gold x Pearl, presumably under the assumption that Dawn would be the basis for Pearl instead of Barry. The reason given in the post is because "they both have dark hair and are percious stones". The submitter also stated "i like obious ones!!" which is hilarious, considering we're having this discussion in the first place. Regardless, the name for Gold x Pearl today is HotBloodShipping, which is included on the archived October 15, 2011 update of the list. I can't find any earlier mention. It is worth noting that the original post was from July 18, 2006, the Diamond and Pearl games and anime didn't launch in Japan until September 28, 2006, the earliest mention of Darkstone shipping for Gold x Platinum is from this thread on October 30, 2008 as "Gold x Platina" (and only mentioned as one of the "worst" and "creepiest" pairings), and the volume that introduced Platinum, Pokémon Adventures volume 30, wasn't released in Japan until December 25, 2008.

    Hopefully some part of that was helpful.

    It is, thank you. Looks like it was just a random shipping name after all.
    Wonder why Gold x Platinum is considered to be worse and creepy pairing if the manga hadn't been out yet and no-one really knew the trio's personalities.
