    Default How old are Jessie and James supposed to be?

    I noticed the Wiki has them listed as 15, as of 2000. I've never seen that movie in Japanese though, so I can't verify that myself.

    They don't seem like teenagers though.

    They look older than Brock, who is fifteen, and act like immature adults. Their backstories don't seem to match them being fifteen either.

    In one episode of the dub Jessie said she was 17, but most people think she was lying.

    Pokeani has them estimated at 25, which is what Bulbapedia used to have. No idea why they changed it to 15 since that's about what Takeshi is. They're at least in their 20s.

    That's weird Dento, Kenji, and Takeshi are around 15 or 17 they aren't that young. When Musashi is signing up for the test in "Pokemon Examination!" she says she's 22.

    Didn't Takeshi Shudo reveal their ages the same way he told us Brock was 15?

    They can't be teenagers; James was engaged to Jessibel at one time :s
    I'm guessing like 19-25 because they still seem really immature
    I claimed Victreebel

    When did he say Takeshi was 15? I can't remember any age being official except Satoshi and the first three girls being 10.

    He was about 5 when that happened.

    They can't be 15...Both of them drive o_o; (Assuming they follow JP road rules, both should at least be over 18, right?)
    EDIT: Psh, bad guys don't need licenses XD

    But yeah, I really don't know where in the jp. version of the 2nd movie it said that...could someone enlighten us?

    They both drink so they have to be at least 20 or older.

    Nyasu is about 20 I'm pretty sure.

    I didn't think their ages where ever stated in the movie. I know there's a few bad translations that have them say their ages during that scene where they talk about how the twerps are too young to be talking about love and Nyasu says Musashi and Kojiro act love-love all the time. (In the dub it was that "You two don't need the opposite sex because you have each other." line)

    I know Pokemon.com is not the best source, but didn't they list Jessie's age as 21 12?

    "Playing around?" Wrong.

    I don't see why people can't just accept them at their, "early twenties."

    Remember, if Ash doesn't age nobody else does. TR are still the same age now as when the show started.

    I'm pretty sure they're in their early 20's. They look around the same height as the other adults in the show.

    Look Forward, Team Rocket!

    Also I claim Piplup in the Claim a Pokemon thread =)

    Can't speak for everyone, but I'd like official, canon confirmation just to be sure.

    I'd put them at 21. Also about drinking/driving, we don't know what the age laws are with that in the Pokemon World, and besides, even if they were below them, do you really think that would stop a trio of -criminals-?
    It suddenly occurred to Domino that Team Rocket was a massive game of Telephone, using actual telephones, with real-life results that could be really damn scary (for other people, of course).

    That had to do with that one Diglett/Dugtrio episode in the Whirl Islands arc where Jessie said something about the old people and that she's like 1/8th their age or some % like that. Then people did the math to determine that would make Jessie 12 based on the age of the old people, but I think the line was supposed to be a joke that Jessie doesn't know math or some random thing the writers through in.

    I think TR is in their early 20s. They're definitely not 15.
