    hmm that's what I'd heard. Although really the age of any anime character isn't clear at all with mixed signals everywhere. I can't remember where I heard Jessie and James were 17 but I heard it repeated a lot.

      Jessie says she's 17 in the Ultimate Test episode dub, but she also says her profession is diva right after. Not very credible . According to Dogasu she states being 22 in the Japanese version, but I'm not sure. It makes a lot more sense if she's older than 17 considering all the things she has done.

        It does seem likely that Jessie and James are in their 20s. But I don't think the amount of stuff they've done really matters, considering how much Ash has managed to do at the age of 10.

        The show hasn't really been consistent about their ages. The biggest piece of evidence that Jessie is actually a teenager is Holiday Hi-Jynx, which has a flashback to ten years ago where she looks like a little kid. But there is other evidence that points to the characters being older, and they generally get treated like adults... So maybe Jessie was just a really late bloomer. Eating snow instead of food will do that to ya.

          Rofl xD. Poor Jessie, she was bragging that snow food made her slimmer, but she omitted that it killed a couple of her brain cells too.

          I must admit that the Jynx episode makes it quite inconsistent. In the flashback, Jessie looks like a five year old kid, but no way she's 15 in the series. Dogasu confirms the same number is mentioned in the Japanese version. The only arguments I can come up with is a) error on the writers' side or b) Jessie was lying about her age again (assuming the Japanese narrator isn't the one mentioning the number). I still consider the content of the CD drama as accurate since it has been written by Shudo who created J&J. It also makes more sense.

            Well Holiday Hi-jynx is an episode I stuggle to accept as canon anyway. Team Rocket kidnaped Santa. I think that says it all xD

              Yeah, that's very true lol. I prefer to believe Jessie's flashback was real, but that Jynx didn't belong to Santa. It's also very funny that Santa uses Ponyta because Stantler and Sawsbuck didn't exist back then xD.

              For those who have some spare time, the character of the week will be Jessie. I think it's quite on topic. I'll try to finish my assignments and come up with something...

                Lol Oh boy, I can write a three page essay on her. XD I'll just condense it into a few nonsensical paragraphs when I get the chance.

                    Jessie is one of Pokemon's most amusing characters, I'll also try to come up with something tomorrow. :P

                      I might leave more time for her since there's a lot to write (and I'm too busy right now lol). Snor(es)lax, you could just come up with funny nonsense if you feel like it! Back to my books... =(

                        Welcome vizarod! I hope you'll be a Rocket Regular!

                        I might try and write one about Jessie tomorrow as well, she is one of my favourite characters after all.

                          I'm surprised no one has written a theory about Jessie yet!

                                Poor, poor Jessie. I don't think she'd be very happy to learn that Cassidy got so many more theories than she did.

                                So here's... err... something.

                                Jessie's hair is actually a Pokemon. This Pokemon, an extremely rare species called Harrier, clings to her head and feeds on her real hair. Jessie herself doesn't realize this, since it's been around as long as she can remember. That's why her hair grows back so quickly when cut: Harrier gets detached from Jessie's head, then wanders back and reattaches itself when nobody is looking. It sags a bit when it gets soaked through, but that implausible curve is actually its natural shape.

                                The whole thing started years ago, when the Team Rocket scientists were trying to develop super Pokemon-human hybrids. The first step in the process was to genetically engineer a new Pokemon that would attach to humans and develop a symbiotic relationship with them. At first Project Poke-Symbiosis seemed to be a dismal failure. The human test subjects were grunts who had been given lab duties as a punishment for wasting money on missions. None of them were able to properly bond with their Harrier; they just had too much trouble adjusting to having enormous objects stuck to their heads, and all of the threats of beatings and imprisonment in the world didn't seem to do a thing to help. The Harrier, feeling terribly unloved, would inevitably get depressed and detach themselves. But one clever scientist speculated that if they attached the Pokemon to a baby, that baby would grow up loving the Harrier as part of his-or-herself, never knowing how much easier life is when you don't have a massive weight clinging to your head. Since Team Rocket specialized in stealing Pokemon rather than humans, babies were in somewhat short supply. But as luck would have it, it just so happened that one of the elite agents had recently popped out a kid. So one day while Miyamoto was out counting her money, a team of grunts snuck into her apartment and attached a Harrier to her infant daughter. Miyamoto was somewhat surprised to see that Jessie's hair had grown by over a foot over the course of an hour, but she never did bother to give it much thought. Jessie grew up adoring her hair, never knowing that it was actually a Pokemon, and Harrier flourished under her loving vanity. Sadly, Jessie was quickly lost to the foster care system, so the scientists never did learn that their symbiosis experiment was a success.

                                Harrier talks to Meowth sometimes, but it's threatened to strangle him in his sleep if he tells a soul about it existence. So far, he's managed to keep the secret.

                                Now come on, surely somebody can come up with a better theory than that.

                                        Welcome! The current topic is about writing any theory you have about Jessie. It can be either serious or funny.

                                          As for a random theory for Jessie, I can't seem to think of one.

                                            Me neither, actually! I have many theories, but they're quite scattered in Jessie's time so I wouldn't know how to put them together... Musashi, we need your 3 page essay!

                                              I'll submit it here eventually! blufair totally has me beat this time around in terms of silly theories though. XD

                                              Sorry I've been so inactive here lately. A lot of bad personal stuffs.

                                              Sorry for my inactivity too.

                                              I really can't think of a theory for Jessie but I have been pondering lately if her Woobat will evolve. It does evolve by happiness after all...
