    Default Who Is Ash's Father?

    It can't be Giovanni as many thought, because in that live action pokemon series, Ash's mother admitted to having an affair with Giovanni but never married him.

    Barring the canonical issues with Pokémon Live, there is nothing to say that Delia had to have married him. (They had to know each other for her to know how long it took him to reach Veridian City but there is nothing to say they were married, especially with him not being around now.)

    But it was an affair? I heard it was just a teenage romance.

    Ash's father is Mr. Mime.

    Or his Mother.

    Ash's father is Goku from DBZ. :[

    This topic has been discussed to death, by the way and I'm sure as hell we'll never know who the father is. Is not like it was important to begin with, isn't it?

    Don't you people ever get bored of asking the same question since 1998?

    If the writers didn't answer this in the 9 years and 400+ episodes of the show, what in the world makes you think they'll ever answer it?

    I also don't see what the big deal is, Ash's father won't affect the plot even if they introduce him, hence why they won't do it. Its just as pointless as revealing who Tracey's parents are, what would be the point?

    You people? This thread was created by one person. (With post count=1 to boot.)

    As for affecting the plot, it could do in the future. The writers could do anything in the future and may decide to throw in Ash's father at some point. While I don't agree with the powerful trainer idea as it would undermine the fact that this is Ash's story, he could play many roles, even in a filler where Ash proves his worth.

    Anyway, the writers already used two Richie hosos to foreshadow the answer.

    You shouldn't take any comments said in a DVD made by 4Kids seriously.

    She said that Giovanni was her boyfriend as a teenager, which she specifically said was before she met Ash's dad.

    According to 4Kids, the Japanese writers didn't approve of the script they wrote originally, making them change it so that Giovanni wasn't Ash's dad. Which most likely means they didn't like the idea of Giovanni as Ash's dad and/or have another idea.

    Yes, that's true, MewMillion.

    But, the 3rd movie commentary ALSO said Ash's father would be revealed in the 5th season.

    The 5th season (Master Quest) came and went, but unfortunately we still didn't find out who Ash's father was.

    My theory is that the Japanese counterparts told the dubbers that information prior to the commentary's recording, but sometime afterwards they decided to put off that storyline until much later in the series (or something).


    And oh yeah, I think what YumeHeart said about Pokemon Live was mentioned in the commentary on Pokemon 3 as well. I'm pretty sure Norman said something about the fact that they wanted to use Giovanni as Ash's father in Pokemon Live, but they were actually told not to by their Japanese counterparts.




    Anyway, on a side note, I love those audio commentaries. They are full of all kinds of interesting information (I'm really hoping they include a commentary on the 8th movie DVD). ^^

    *has listened to all 3 of the Pokemon DVD commentaries*
