IkariShipping (Japanese: シンヒカ ShinHika) is the name given to the Dawn and Paulcoupling supported by a number fans of the Pokémon anime. Since its conception, it has become one of the more popular Ships around the fandom, despite being without any solid evidence for a romantic relationship between the two characters.
The name is derived from the name of the main character of another anime, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Shinji Ikari, since the two characters are named Shinji and Hikari. After the fact, the name can also be taken from the Japanese 怒り (ikari), meaning “rage” or “anger”, much like the way HeiseiShipping was named.
The fact that Dawn is optimistic and upbeat while Paul is cold-hearted and apathetic makes most fans think this Ship is even less likely to actually happen. However, some IkariShippers believe that their polar opposite personalities make it more likely that Dawn and Paul will eventually get together; the fact being the popular saying: “Opposites attract.”Evidence
The following list is a summary of points in the Pokémon Anime that the majority of IkariShippers and other people believe points to possible romantic feelings between Paul and Dawn. Unlike PokéShipping or ContestShipping, these points have not yet been debated extensively, and the following summaries can at this point only be considered to be showing how IkariShippers interpret events, not as being a conclusive interpretation agreed upon by all.
Most other Shippers don’t agree that Dawn’s feelings towards Paul are important. In fact, out of all main and secondary characters, she is the only one who really shows any interest in Paul, or even in his skills.Ursaring, although he didn’t return her sentiments.Paul stared at Dawn after she stopped the argument, she worriedly asked what’s wrong.Dawn tried to stop the argument between Paul and Ash. However, she became very furious about the fact that Paul didn’t remember her at all.When Paul stands up to leave during Ash’s battle Dawn is the first to notice it.Torterra is his first Pokémon, Dawn appears impressed.Gliscor, Dawn just slightly smiles after him.
Ash and Brock demand to watch him battle, Paul answers in an aggravated tone. However, when Dawn admits that she wants to watch him battle, Paul glances over her while saying: “I couldn’t care less.” IkariShippers believe that he doesn’t mind if she’s around.
Paul met Dawn when she was separated from her friends. He seemed annoyed when he saw her, as Ash and Brock were not far behind. He talked to her calmly as if he didn’t very much mind she was there, though he seemed mad about Ash and Brock looking for Dawn and the others (some IkariShippers interpret the look as jealously). Also, when Brock asked him where Dawn and Ash were, Paul said he hasn’t seen them. However, he had seen Dawn the moment Brock appeared.
In this episode, Paul and Ash argue a lot about Paul’s Chimchar. When Dawn makes a point, Paul responds calmly. He smirks slightly at her before talking.He states, while looking intensely at Dawn; “When two people meet, something is born.” This is likely a reference to the poem found at the bottom of the Solaceon Ruins, or, as some IkariShippers believe, a hint.
When Chimchar is too scared to attack Ursaring, Ash and his Pokémon are yelling to do its best. When Dawn does the same thing, Paul looks irritated; some IkariShippers again interpret the expression as jealousy.
When Paul discovers Dawn eavesdropping, he doesn’t seem to be annoyed about it. She follows him outside and they start talking. Paul opens up to Dawn a bit more by confessing abou
- Their hometowns are located near a lake: Twinleaf Town to Lake Verity and Veilstone City to Lake Valor.
- Coincidently, Lake Verity’s Japanese name is Shinji.
- Both of them acquired their starter Pokémon in Sinnoh, yet it is unknown if Paul got his starter from Professor Rowan like Dawn did. This is because in When Pokémon Worlds Collide!, Professor Rowan did not recognize Paul.
