Iris is a character in the Pokémon franchise. She appears as a Gym Leader in the Generation V games Pokémon Black and Pokémon White and in the anime as Ash's traveling companion the series Best Wishes!
One of the most popular ships for Iris is NegaiShipping (Ash/Iris), which gained some support even before the anime series aired. However, NegaiShippers receive much opposition from PokéShippers, AdvanceShippers, and PearlShippers, who resent Iris for taking their respective character's place as Ash's female traveling companion.
