it definitely looks like the community has already adopted geekchicshipping for clemont x serena so it may be confusing if you change it. i think having a duplicate wouldn't hurt in this case since everyone will mostly be using geekchicshipping to refer to clemont and serena.
I think you’re right. A lesson learned for me, to be sure, but at this point there’s no point crying over spilled milk. Sorry, Lanette & Winona fans.
I agree. I mean, some of my favorite ‘ships are minor shippings, including pretty much non-existant shippings, but even if GeekChicShipping (Clemont & Serena) were renamed, searches for GeekChicShipping would still bring up remnants from its days as Clemont & Serena.
Besides, some Pokémon ‘ships share names with ‘ships from other fandoms. I’ve searched for fairly unpopular Pokémon ‘ships, and slightly more popular Yu-Gi-Oh! ‘ships pop up, unless I add the Pokémon character’s name to the search.
Also, I’d like to point out that Lanette herself isn’t back in Pokémon Bank, it’s her cooler sister, Brigette, who is coming back.
And it’s true, just about everybody, including myself, is anticipating Hoenn remakes, but we could only see if that boosted Winona’s popularity. Heck, she is my favorite Hoenn Gym Leader, but I don’t really think she was too popular even when RSE were the current games… Her Gym battle could even be skipped until the Pokémon League…
