* Though not as well-known as other examples, fans have been known to ship Groudon and Kyogre.

** ''[[PhantomThiefPokemonSeven Kaitou]]'' has Hiori and Lily, which counts as IncestSubtext since they're twins (not that Lily remembers as she's an amnesiac while evil).

** ''[[PortmanteauSeriesNickname Pokewake]]'' has Kaede and Erika. They're friends though and it only counts due to the former being a Team Rocket grunt.

* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' is full of this, which is no surprise since the source game are FoeYay [[TheRival rival]] and villain heavy. ''[[PortmanteauSeriesNickname Pokewake]]'' has Kaede and Erika (which only counts due to the former being a Team Rocket grunt, since they aren't foes), ''[[Manga/PokemonGoldenBoys Golden Boys]]'' has [[strike:Silver]] Black and Gold, ''[[Manga/PokemonDiamondAndPearlAdventure DPA]]'' has [[spoiler:Mitsumi]] and Hareta, and ''[[PhantomThiefPokemonSeven Kaitou]]'' has Hiori and Lily (also counts as IncestSubtext since they're twins).

''[[Manga/PokemonGoldenBoys Golden Boys]]'' has [[strike:Silver]] Black and Gold, Gold. Black is just the ame as Silver in the games however with extra camp.
**
''[[Manga/PokemonDiamondAndPearlAdventure DPA]]'' has is... complicated. [[spoiler:Mitsumi]] and Hareta, Hareta are normally best friends but [[spoiler:Mitsumi has to re-join Team Galactic for a few chapters ]]and utterly wrecks Hareta. Being the AllLovingHero he is, Hareta doesn't take it lightly. There's also Cyrus and both Mitsumi and Hareta as MindGameShip's.

Added DiffLines:

* N and the [[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite BW protagonist]] became one of the most popular Pokemon ships very quickly. It helps that N is an AntiVillain though. The ferris wheel moment where he reveals he's affiliated with Team Plasma is iconic and has an odd resemblance to the ferris wheel dates in the game.
* Silver angrily stripping [[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver Lyra/Ethan]] makes perfect sense in context but it was inevitable fans would take it a different way.

* Meowth and Pikachu get subtext too. Besides the HoYay filled episodes where they get stuck working together, there's an ImageSong where Meowth sings about Pikachu in a loving way, and his late voice actor MaddieBlaustein once said she used to play him up as a bisexual.

**** Before you fangirls pounce on that, it could also be seen as a senior-to-rookie friendship, as it is natural for kids in Japan to highly respect people more experienced than them, and for the senior to look out for the rookie who respects him back.

* And now we have Ash and Trip, who is a major {{Kuudere}}, which actually causes the "only a jerk to Ash because he wants him" to hold more water than it did with Paul. To add to that, Trip is one of the few rivals that doesn't piss him off as much as Gary (because Ash and Gary started out as best friends, so the rivalry was more hurtful to him, and Ash and Gary eventually became good friends again) or Paul (because of serious reasons mention above). Even if Trip [[JerkassFacade acts like a jerk]], Ash is willing to ignore almost all of his insults. In fact, Trip is the only rival where Ash actually ''dismisses'' Trip's victory over him particularly the first battle where he declares that it doesn't count.
