Who do you think ash's dad is. The pokemon wikia says that hewent off on his own journey from pallet town. We already seen that Giovanni couldn't because he is silver's dad.

Some logical guesses are:
Mr.Mime
Professor Oak
Professor Birch
and Bob Ross

Please post your guess

Who is Ash’s father?
Ash’s father is a Pokémon Trainer traveling on his own who may or may not appear later on in the series.

None of the above.

The most logical thing would be that Pokemon is a George Lopez. Ash's father "went on a journey". Actually, he left Delia. I believe Delia got pregnant with Ash when she was 18 no? Getting knocked up at that age usually means the dad is going to leave you.

So yes, Ash's father "is on a journey"... to raise other kids with his wealth of being VP of some unknown company.

Which proves my life-time hypothesis that almost everyone in Pokemon is Mexican.

Wait, Mr. Mime is a logical guess? Is it just me or is that incredibly wrong and most likely impossible? Because Ash was the one who gave Delia Mr. Mime. Regardless of the bestiality factor.

I'm going to have to agree with AK47 on this, even though I've been a longtime supporter of the Prof. Oak Is Ash's Daddy theory.

Ash is probably some bastard child whose dad died before he was born. Such a shame.

I doubt that they will ever introduce Ash's father in the anime, or in the games. It's just not going to happen. I bet Ash's father either left when Delia was pregnant...or he really did leave for a Pokémon journey of his own. But who does that? How do people condone this behaviour? You don't knock somebody up and then decide to go on a Pokémon adventure. That's just not cool! What a bad Dad! No offense!

Way to take part in your son's life and just leave your wife to raise a child. Haha. Stupid Ash's Dad...

I'm curious as to how Mr. Mime is a logical guess. That's just seems more impossible in my mind.

I've always been a big fan of Professor Oak being Ash's farther, and the most likely reason I've come to this because that is actually how he acts to Ash. He has become a fatherly figure he can come back too since the beginning of the anime. But Ash's dad isn't Professor Oak, for certain. Indeed in my opinion is that his farther "is a trainer on a journey" who I don't believe will ever appear later on in the series, it will make it too dramatical for the children audience of Pokemon.

Mr.Mime

LOL. I'm trying to think how Mr. Mime is a logical guess xD

Anywho, my guess would be on Prof. Oak. No logic behind it, but it would mean that Ash would be Gary's dad o.O

I don't understand Prof Oak, because then that would mean Ash was wayy older then Gary.

Actually, Professor Oak could have knocked another lady his age a while ago and had a daughter/son who knocked for Gary at the same time Oak knocked Delia for Ash.

Just sayin'

How is that logical?


Ash’s father is a Pokémon Trainer traveling on his own who may or may not appear later on in the series.

This seems to me as the most 'logical' reply.

I don't really know why, but I always thought that Giovanni was Ash's father. XD;

Ok think about this even tho its 13 years for us since ash started his journy its only been within a year for him. one of the episodes showed ash with his dad in a flashback ash was a little younger than he is now. for all we know ash could of seen his dad a day before the series start

There was that guy Ash had a little memory of in the Twinleaf episode or Spencer hale - It was mentioned in Pokemon Live that Delia used to be a member of Team rocket! Maybe Giovanni banged her and shes kept it a secret from them both!

Well. The subject is probably not brought up in the Ketchum household, because his Dad is dead. Traumatized 10 year would be traumatized if the truth was known.

I sense conspiracy shenanigans.

Either that or his father was some random Ditto?

RainbowWing
October 11th, 2010, 10:24 AM
Along time ago i always thought ash's father was dead, mostly because the English dub of the anime didn't talk about his dad at all, i think.
(LOL 4kids)

His dad is probably on his own adventure, and is probably a character we don't know about so far.

ORegan
October 11th, 2010, 12:59 PM
If you're son was Ash Ketchum, wouldn't you leave too? :P

Know what would be really funny though? If Ash never knew his father, and already met him and beat him in a battle in Kanto or Johto. :p

Also, a Mr. Mime is very logical if you believe this article on Bulbapedia stating that all humans are a sub-specie of Pokemon http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Humans

They have no known genetic relationship to Pokemon at the present time, but according to Sinnoh myths, they once coexisted as a single species (possibly Mew) and were one and the same. This species transformed between human form and Pokémon form often. Eventually, this species evolved (in the Darwinist sense) into humans and the various species of Pokémon seen today.

Then again, it would mean that theoretically, Ash's father could also be a Caterpie. XD

If Ash's father were any sort of Pokemon, there would be characteristics of that Pokemon observed in Ash. Ash is very human, so it is incredibly unlikely that his father was a Pokemon.

In any case, I'm also starting to like the idea that his father was a Rocket member, as well.

Well you see, at some point Ash met Celebi and went back in time, creating a ripple in the space-time contiuum, and he is actually his own father..... Actually that's kind of creepy if you think about it..... :O

But really, I don't think they have ever shown him in the show, but I don't see why he wouldn't be in a future episode, as that might be kind of interesting.

That would explain why nobody there seens to work and why on every new region there is a gang who "nobody tries" to stop.

[/sarcasm]

Would be kinda cool if Ash find his father turned to be a Pokemon Master and "there can be only one" thing xD
Like on GSC / HGSS when you find Red.

He probably had a "good for nothing" father who left on a journey to be a pokemon master but instead he is now living alone in pallet as an unknown man. Similarly to Brock and Sabrina's fathers.

Oh I completely support the theory that Mr. Mime is Ash's father. He's the only person we ever see with Ash's Mom. You know that she doesn't keep him around just to dust and vacuum. Mr. Mime is her boyfriend it's as plain as day.

The reason I find this illogical and baseless is that Mr. Mime is obtained by her It's Mr.Mime Time (EP 64) whereas Ash, as we know, was already born before that.

I don't really support that idea, but remember how Bill used his machine thing to turn into a pokemon? Well....... Maybe Ash's father did the same, but got stuck? :O

I was just joking. Nobody gets my sarcasm ._.

I actually think Ash's father left her mother. You never see her saying anything about him, except for one setence at the first or second episode. Even through Ash is a sucessful trainer in the Animé, she never said anything like "your father would be proud" or anything like that. She probably don't wanna talk about it.

And, of course, probably Ash's father don't even know who his son is. If he knew his son won more than 30 badges and been at least in the finals of every region Pokemon League, I think he would have passed by to say Hello.

Well, there was this one little scene in "Pokemon Chronicles". The Japanese opening, at least:

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/2/2c/Silver_in_the_Anime.png


Anyway, I personally think Ash's father is Silver/Shiruba, due to similarities they seem to share :):

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/2/25/AnimeSilver2.jpg

Professor Oak or Rocket Boss Giovanni being Ash's father would be interesting to see, but it would be weird for Ash to be related to Gary Oak or Silver (the red-head Johto rival)... The revelation of Ash's father (if not Silver from Pokemon Chronicles) would be a fitting to see in the last a Pokemon episode...

Pokémandias

Well maybe Ash's mother's affinity for Mr. Mimes in general says that in the past she had a fling with a Mr. Mime. She's got invisible box fever.

As others have stated before me, Ash's father is on a journey. I've also questioned on who his father could be, but unless Ash somehow stumbles across him and has to face him in a battle(Which I doubt will happen, though it would be interesting if he did) then I really don't think we'll EVER know who his Father is.

I don't need to explain how hard is it to answer a simple question you just have to think of possible ways on who Ash's father really is. I doubt Satoshi Taiji is the father of Ash Ketchum.

Nevermind, I really can't understand what you're trying to say. Grammar is your friend.

As mentioned before, Ash's father isn't anyone we've seen before, I'm not sure we'll even see him in the future.

His father is some jobless deadbeat that couldn't support the family in any way, it seems. But in all seriousness, it can't be Mr. Mime. Mr. Mime came while Ash was on his journey. A lot of people suspect it to be Giovanni, but I don't know. I believe that it could be Spencer Hale from Pokemon: The Third Move. Delia and Spencer Hale were apparently good friends and he wasn't much older than her and I think that it's a possibility. Or maybe Ash's father is dead. He killed himself because of Ash. He would rather have Gary as a son.

ZebraikaKnight
October 30th, 2010, 10:40 PM
Maybe he was an aspiring trainer who simply died before Ash was born. No need to make things so crazy.

I'm not arguing that Delia's copping a bit of Mime-meat, since she clearly is (and Barrier provides an excellent contraceptive) but I think that started a while after Ash's dad died.

Ryanna Jameson

I'm still thinking Oak x Delia is what went down after Ash's dad died/left/vanished/got a restraining order put on him/was kidnapped/went into a coma, but according to Pokemopolis Delia and Oak include anyone in their love parties (Mr. Mime, Tracey, Brock, Muk).

...Yes, I realize Pokemopolis is not a viable source, although much of what they say makes a lot of sense. ^^;

I could actually see the Narrator as Ash father. So far this is the only one that makes sense.

Although I believe the Narrator being Ash father would make sense, I support the Oak x Delia one. You just never know.

I think Ashs father was about go on his own Pokemon Journey. And Delia knew that he wont come back for a while and the father got into her pants. Probably . After the father left, Delia found out she was pregnent with Ashs fathers baby. Accidental pregnancy basicly. Leaving the father unaware.

And Ashs dad is probably still on his journey, or dead...or something without contacting home for the past I dont know how old Ashs is now...Probably old. But yea havent contact Delia for that long...that's my theory. But of coarse wrong.

bwburke94

Giovanni is a candidate, since HG/SS and Adventures are not canon to the anime.

The two other frequent theories I've seen are Silver (the one from Sevii, not the rival or the Lugia) and Professor Oak. Oak is at least 50 years old as of Johto and has a grandson, while Silver has never met Ash.

It's worth noting that this is the ONLY singular rumor from any media to get a page exclusive to itself on TV Tropes.
