Haha, so I haven't done this in a while. My previous one, Advance shipping got bashed so I thought I should say this;
I respect your opinions, even if I may disagree with them. Please respect mine. I am open to debating, but downright rudeness is simply unacceptable. Thank you.
~Opposites Attract, by me.
Why do I like it?
Compared to its competing shippings, such as Penguinshipping and Pearlshipping, it doesn't have much evidence. However, it doesn't stop it being one of the most popular shippings in the Pokemon fandom (alongside Pokeshipping and Contestshipping.)
We like it because of the bad boy, Paul. Dawn just fits. It's really hard to explain, but the phrase 'opposites attract' is pretty much it.
Paul does seem gentler around Dawn, unlike his interactions with Ash, some may say that's because she's not a rival, but we like to think he's crushing!
Also, team Shinji guys, I really would like to see him win the Sinnoh League.
So anyway, what are your thoughts on Ikarishipping? Yay or Nay? If not, who would you prefer to see with Paul or Dawn? Why? Try and convince me away from the Ikari. (<The impossible challenge)
