PalletShipping was one of the original ships in the Pokémon anime fandom, and PalletShippers were often involved in ship wars with PokéShippers, fans who pair Ash with Misty. Misty was a common target for bashing by Palletshippers, spilling over into their fics.
- Ash dies, causing Gary to realize his feelings for him. Either he realizes too late or Ash comes back to life through some sort of magic, giving them a second chance.
- Their rivalry stems from unresolved romantic feelings for one another, both boys being too prideful to admit to these feelings.
- Brock and Misty either suspect or learn of Ash's feelings for Gary. Misty's reactions run the gamut from hateful jealousy to supportive matchmaking, while Brock is mainly a supportive observer.
- Childhood fics, many of which assume the boys were the best of friends before the beginning of their rivalry.
- Hurt/Comfort, usually featuring illness or injury.
