Whether Black-kun ends up as a companion or a rival, I think it's safe to say that he'll get shipped with Ash by at least some people. Since Ash/White and Black/White have naming threads, I figure they should get one too.


Personally, since it looks like Ash/White may end up as Othello and Black/White may end up as Chess, I think that Ash/Black should be game themed as well.

Some open names:

PokerShipping
ChaturajiShipping (A Variant of Chess in India)
BackgammonShipping
MancalaShipping


Other, non-game themed names that might be cool:
CapShipping (This has been suggested for Ash/White, but fits for black as well, since he also wears a cap)
GrayShipping (Same)

These are just a few of my ideas though. I'd love to hear more.

I double this will be the big issue, but, fair game.

Might want to consider something involving cards (the suits being red and black), like Solitaire, Tarocchi (another word for Tarot), or your idea of Poker.

Unless Black ends up as a Travel buddy instead of White, I'm sure it won't be as popular, but I'll probably end up shipping it at least.

Other card games:

Rummy
Blackjack
Baccarat

While my brain is shorted out from all the awesome, I vote for Pokershipping.

I think I like Poker more than Solitaire.
Poker is a more exciting game, it's easier to spell, if Ash and Black bicker than it's like a revamp (but so, so much better) alternative to Poke', and it fuels my need for a "love is like a gamble" based fanfic for them.

You know, I just realized "Gameshipping" wasn't taken. o.o'

Well, it's the name of a somewhat minor (crack?) pair in Yu-Gi-Oh fandom (Yami Yugi & Otogi) but otherwise it's not on the Pokemon shippers list, so maybe that name could also be used for a Black and/or White related ship? :)

If it couldn't be used for Black/Ash maybe it could be a possible name for White/Rival (or Black/Rival) anyway?

Pokershipping sounds more fitting if Black were with Manga!Red and Black rather than Ash/ClassicGame!Red. Still, I'd support it either way. =P

Yeah. I'm to shy away from Poker a bit. It reminds me too much of Poke when I see it written out, ya know? I dont know. I'm a bit torn on it.

I'm sort of leaning towards BlackjackShipping myself but Lovehat sounds cute.

Blackjack might be better for game!Red/Black.

One of Red's optional names is Jack.
