There comes a time in any authenticator's life when one should stop cleaning up after others. Formally introducing myself: I'm LT. I currently the one in charge of updating BMGf's list of shipping names, meaning the list most of you get your names from (where some of you somehow miss the point, but I'll get to that in a minute).
Every time I come here, there's always some new legendary (or other) 'ship someone's come up with; that's cool. I tag it and bag it like I call it, cart them away, and make them official, under the idea that hopefully no one elsesomewhere elsebeat you to it. This is a hassle, because while many are new, some that already have names are being called something else. This is where life gets confusing, because when I search for 'midnightshipping' I should not be getting 'Darkrai/Cresselia' where I should be getting 'Umbreon/Weavile/Houndoom', because it was named LunarEclipseshipping long before it got popular. Anyway.
That's not the point, this is the point: you want things like IceTablet and LionKing official? I can make that happen. I can put your shiny on the list, and you should never have to worry about other people calling it something different again (unless, they, yanno, don't read the list, which is a problem on everyone's part). You just need to do two things.
1) Make sure it's not called something else first. Some of you are awesome, and actually know the list exists and use it, saving me from painful migraines of sirius bizness intarwebs splodeding synapses.
2) Either leave it on this very thread, saying this is the 'ship (you didn't find on the list) with this name (that wasn't on the list) OR on the list's guestbook. We get quite the number of people using that as a submission form, and that's cool.
This way, I'm not tempted to ignore what might be genuine, because when I think something might already be taken, it's one thing to check. It's a whole new ballgame when I need to search for a bulk-load, like some of the time I find here.
Adieu.9/14/2008 . Edited 3/8/2012 #1
Ah, so someone actually runs that list. Very well, can I submit a few?
IceTabletShipping - Uxie & Froslass
PsychicSandShipping - Flygon & Latios
ShineStarShipping - Jirachi & Mew
I have a few others that aren't yet official, but I can't think of a good name. ^^;9/14/2008 #2
Um... let's see...
Entei x Dialga- FeiryTimeShipping
Uxie x Mew- PlayfulKnowledgeShipping
Ho-oh x Rayquaza- ConceitedFeathersShipping
Shaymin x Manaphy- ChildlikeShipping
I'll think of some more xD Please forgive me if there are already names for these pairing! I made a list of all the legendary pairings at that said website, but I might have missed these!
Thanks for everything!

Ah, I believe that Ho-oh/Cresselia is called Radianceshipping.9/14/2008 . Edited 9/14/2008 #4
Thanks DL :3 Crossed that one of then... do you see anything wrong with my list? ^^;
Mesprit/Jirachi is WishfulThinking Ho-oh/Raquaza is Radiance Giratina/Latios is Verimyn
DeathWish is Giratina/Jirachi
And this is why you should double check, always, just in case.
So I can take FieryTime, PlayfulKnowledge, ConceitedFeathers, Childlike, IceTablet, PsychicSand, and ShineStar. ...Though, for future reference, when it comes to FFN, you may wish to think in terms of shorter names. Or single words. Just a tip.9/14/2008 #6
Hehe, sorry about that Luna ^^; I'll try to make them shorter. I was actually through my shipping list right now and I was about to edit it xD I'll do it anyway.
CellShipping - Mew & Deoxys9/14/2008 #8
PrimalScreamshipping- Primal DialgaXHero in PMD2
I'll create more XD9/14/2008 #9
|The Dragon Lover
Hey, wait, about the pairings that look like Person, Guy and Dude or whatever, with three people, I was just wondering what that meant. It always confuses me. :/ I hate getting confused. XP9/14/2008 #10
It means threesomes/moresomes. Polyamorous 'ships, not love triangles. Comakarishipping isn't Ash and Paul fighting over Dawn; they're in some form of doable relationship 'tween the three. It makes Flexibleshipping all the more frightening. ^_^9/14/2008 #11
|The Dragon Lover
Ah, okay, that clears everything up. Thank you!9/14/2008 #12
Just LionKingshipping, please, LuxrayxRaikou, as you mentioned it. That ship's the only one I really want on there. xP9/14/2008 #13
Oh, and I just got this one; Creatorshipping, MewxArceus.9/15/2008 #14
I think it's already called that Draco xD CreationShipping9/15/2008 #15

|Kaze Tsukai Kagura
Sorry, it's already called CessationShipping.
Can anyone think of a name for Dusknoir/Primal Dialga? I'm obsessed with that shipping now and WANTZ A NAME BADLY!
P.s. Contrary to the given gender in the game, I refer to Primal Dialga as a female. It's so much fun! :DDD10/3/2008 #20
Woot, mine are there! 8D
Here are a few more:
WarpPowerShipping - Celebi & Azelf
OceanGemShipping - Phione (M) & Phione (F). Because there are multiple Phione.
HiddenJoyShipping - Togekiss (F) & Latios10/5/2008 #21
Alright, I have just a few. I hope I'm not repeating any of the shippings, I mean... I did check the super king kong komayamaya list on bulbagardens but man! There's so many shippings I think my eyes started bleeding!
Either Graveyard or Cemetaryshipping, I prefer cemetary. Garatina X Marowak
AngelEonshipping Altaria X Latios
Latios X Garchomp (looks around... what?) Mach-5shipping
Suicune X Garchomp JetSpeedshipping
Latios X Dialga RaceAgainstTimeshipping
Altaria X Jigglypuff SingAlongshipping
Alright, that's all for now. I know I'll come up with more... I just now it, hey!
Oh yeah, I guess I could think of a few for P Dialga and Duskinior KTK.
That's all I got...hope it helps.10/9/2008 . Edited 10/9/2008 #22
Ctrl+F'ing for word prefixes makes life easier.
Cemetary and Graveyard are both taken. I suggest Sepulcher (or Sepulchre):
The rest, I can take.10/10/2008 #23
...Except I can't take OceanGem, because we don't take same species 'ships unless they're specific. Kay's Raichu/Surge's Raichu, for example.10/10/2008 #24
Why? Can't a male and female of the same species be together? Humans do it all the time.10/10/2008 #25
Sepulchershipping, fair enough! CD
Oh can I add like a few more real quick? Here's where it gets reeeeeeeally random and crazy. Get ready.

Okay, I'm done. XD
No no wait, WishingStarShipping Jirachi X Clefairy... okay NOW I'm done10/10/2008 . Edited 10/11/2008 #26
It has nothing to do with if they can or can't be together. The list just doesn't accept names for things like Phione/Phione, Gardevoir/Gardevoir, etc. There's little point in having a name for something that isn't unique. And by unique, I don't mean special. I mean tailored specifically, one-of-a-kind, yadda yadda. Now, we do have 'ships with Lance/Lance and Giovanni/Giovanni, but two are from the anime, one Lance is from the Special manga, and one Giovanni is from the game. That casts uniqueness, because they're specific people in specific universes. And we have Surge's Raichu and Kay's Raichu, because they're under unique ownership, and none will be confused with who is what.
Wes' Umbreon and Gary's Umbreon? Cool. Ash's Pikachu and Red's Pikachu? Generic pair of Ninetales? Doesn't fly.
If they don't belong to someone, we simply don't take names for like species. Otherwise, that's 490+ more names we don't need, on top of everything else in the mix'n'match bag.
And what's more, the list will always be gender neutral (unless it's a Nidoran, or single-sex only species, obviously). Your hetero SilverLightshipping might be someone else's h*** SilverLightshipping, and there will be no distinction.10/10/2008 #27
Okay, I have a few more!
