    I know way back in season 1 Delia did say ash was very adventurous like his father but besides that he hasnt really been mentioned. I saw a youtube video that said his father was Giovanni but there is a very low chance of this being true, even though he did date Delia at one point. And no his diad isnt Mr.Mime lol ( and ash is not a ditto/testube baby). The only recurring characters that had parents were brock,may/max, and barry and dawn i guess.

      Nah, I don't think they'll ever reveal who it is. If they do, I'm sure that would mark the end of the anime, or at least prove to be a pivotal point in Ash's development. And that alone will mark the ending, since Ash actually grows up if he meets his dad. But he doesn't seem too concerned over about it at all. He only cares about Pokemon, really.

        Yeah, a normal person would at least wonder especially being 10 and having no father figure around

          Giovani only might be his dad in The electric tale of pikachu. In the show two people are thought to be his dad professor oak (unlikely due to that meanng himand garywould be related and they've never metioned and relation) Or silver (pokemon golds antagonist and GIOVANIS SON!) The logicalone is silver due to him being Delila's age and adventurer. In one episode of a spin off silver told gold (I don't rember his name in the series) That he reminded him of an adventurer he knows ;D

            Here we go about this topic again, for the umpteenth time...
            Who Ash's father REALLY is is a tightly held secret among the writers-whoever he is, or whenever they will reveal this, we may never know.

                  My theory? His father is MOST likely either Giovanni, or Koga (There are some striking similarities in their looks.....)

                    Seriously speaking, its some guy with the name of Ketchum, Mr Ketchum.

                    No now I am serious, they are not going to reveal who is Ash's father because he doesn't exist or he's dead or Ash's adopted or something crazy like that.

                    I believe his father is The Pokemon Master and by saying that when we find out who Ash's father is will make the end of the Anime, I find to be true in this case. Perhaps Ash becomes a Pokemon Master by defeating his father?

                      Come to think of it, as for these and the assertions that it's Giovanni, I once believed that Ash's father was a really dark (no pun intended) and vicious figure a la Darth Vader.

                        We will never know because it is not important at all. Seriously, in almost every anime, story or show, we don't always know about the protagonist's parents and that's not a mysterious fact ! And, since Pokémon is mainly a kid show, this is unlikely that they imagined something twisted about Ash's father, like Giovanni being his father or anything else.
                        So, we'll never know, and we don't have to care about that.

                        Ash's father: Unwritten Dude

                        Just like Gary's Parents, Misty's Parents, Dawn's Father, Paul and Reggie's Parents, Barry's Mom, etc etc etc

                        They exist, but if they were anyone of importance that we've seen there would be big hints by now.

                          LOL, GIOVANNI BEING ASH'S DAD. I think Ash would give up his Pokemon dream if it were true...

                          Actually, I read somewhere a while back that the producers and such said that they won't reveal Ash's dad at the time being, but if it comes down to that and it is needed for the growth and development of Ash, then they will reveal his father.
                          Not sure if that's true, but that's what I read somewhere. Don't ask me where because I really don't remember...but anyhow, 2012 seems like a good year, so they might reveal him but they might not. I give it about a 5-10% chance, LOL, since there haven't been any hints on it or any mention of it, but maybe later on in the year or something. I kinda would like to see his dad, but I bet he would just look like a taller Ash, haha!

                          The dub staff on a commentary of either the third or first movie said that they would reveal him if they needed, or maybe later. Being the dub staff, really there's no creditability about plot line elements.

                          They're pretty much set on making him 10 forever, so I doubt he'll ever 'need development'.

                          Wow this is a pretty good question. I probably wondered that the first season but after that, I just considered him to be a dead beat.....it happens...

                            It was mentioned in a pokemon DVD commentary that Ash's dad will be revealed..

                            Maybe it's Lance..

                              I dont think giovanni is ashs father
                              because in the games it said that giovannis kid has long red hair, Only person in games with those characteristics SILVER
                              in the new games celebi flashbacks you to giovanni leaving silver disbanding team rocket

                              but those are games this is anime

                                    Me and a friend from high school used say it was Professor Oak. Because my friend even had a whole story on this. To be honest I thought Ash's dad died or something.

                                        Red doesn't exist in anime canon.

                                        Oh, and every single theory thus far has been copied from TV Tropes. The OP is definitely a troper, that's for sure.

                                          Isn't it blatantly obvious?
                                          Who appears in every episode?
                                          Who knows everything about Ash and his adventures?
                                          Who knows enough about the pokemon world to have been a hardcore adventurer?

                                          CLEARLY Ash's father is the narrator.
