  • That Giovanni is Ash father give so much sense, Jessie and James are there to take care of him, the are Team rockets Strongest team, if you have see them in in Unova you see how powerful Jessie and James are, if I remember right the stole top secret files found top security facilities and deferend itims and I think broke in a took over a jail and really steal a pokemon Giovani wanted frome ash and his friends. And it right that Giovanni meet ask in Unova, but he dont let him speak his name Giovanni just defeat him in like 3 seconds, and Ask mom say that he's dad is a great trainer Giovanni is EXSTRAMELY strong, and are a gym leder to (to also be the boss of Team Rocket) Giovanni take also a report for what the have done, and maybe in the report Jessie and James tell him about Ash's progress as a pokemon trainer. Nodes, this is just what I think I want to hear more opinions write down some Therorys and what you thinking in the comments down please :D

  • Trainer Red has brown eyes too. Trainer Red also has black hair. Bast on your Datta red is most likely the Father of Ash by I would estamate 97 present. Not to mention that dellia ketcham has some noticable similarities to leaf green. A kind friendly upbeat person. And in the monga, and remakes of the origonel games red, and green have a thing. And at this time Gwovanie would be a young man. And red would most likely to Care More about his pokemon then his own son.

  • Ok, story time! I found out when I was about 25 that my grandfather lead a double life. Had two wives (one of which was my grandmother obviously), had two houses, and had 5 kids between the two wives (2 in my family, my mother being one of them). All of this happened in Moosejaw, Saskatchewan, in about the 1950's. Considering the census in 2016 said it had roughly only 33,000, it's safe to assume it had a much lower population in the 50's. -----So uh... your theory about keeping a relationship secret in a small town is wrong, considering my grandfather was somehow able to keep his double life secret until my mother was about 12, and my uncle 15. So for AT LEAST 15 years, he was able to keep two families in a small town secret from each other. I still have no idea how he managed this BS.

  • Dalia Ketchum is portrayed as a housewife, right? How long has she had that profession--and exclusively that? Maybe Giovanni has been sending regular payments to her all along ever since their son was born, on the downlow in an effort to keep Ash from finding out? It would be just one more reason for Giovanni to keep his Team Rocket enterprise (illegal as it may be) as profitable as possible, and it would at least partly explain why Dalia is not exactly in poverty despite probably not producing any regular income herself.

  • ...But isn't Silver's hair clearly gray from old age, though? Like, he doesn't look blonde, even platinum blonde, in any world I can conceive of... He has about the same hair color as Oak, and seems to be at a similar age, too. I really don't think the hair aspect was enough to remove _him_ from the picture.

  • Plot Twist: There were two Mews that were still in existence, the first mew and the only mew left is the main important one. The second Mew like all other mews had to become a different new pokemon species, the second mew didn't know what to turn into and actually decided to want to become a human, it later then became a human, and went to live on like one. For generations, the bloodline of that mew was special because it is the bloodline of a mythical pokemon. That bloodline went down to ash. But some secret organization knew about the bloodline and actually started hunting down that family. The dad of ash went off and fled to keep ash safe and ended up being killed by the organization. But they never knew about Ash the last of the mew origin bloodline. If Dalia told Ash that he was of pokemon descent. It would be too dangerous cause it could get to anyone and anywhere if Ash knew if he was actually part mythical pokemon. That is why Ash loves pokemon and always gets along with them, that is because he is them he is technically part pokemon with human DNA. He is a mixture of humans and Pokemon, a mythical pokemon.

  • Silver is Ash's grandfather. Celia mentioned that both the father and grandfather are trainers in their journey to become Pokemon masters, this also implies that Giovani isn’t the father, as Giovani isn’t in a journey to become a Pokemon master. Another think important is that Celia says that Ash’s father took 4 days to get to Viridian city, implying that he wasn’t from Viridian city, he’s from Palet town.
