    I think it might be Ho-Oh. Morty said in one of the episodes that Ash had somesort of connection with Ho-Oh, and Ash saw Ho-Oh in one of the first episodes of Pokemon. I think it's a reincarnation thing, like Ash's father died, and came back as Ho-Oh to watch over his wife and son. But that's just what I thing.

            I don't really know... I wish they would tell us, though. ^_^; I've heard that it might be Giovanni. Who knows?

              I am confused, I think its Giovanni or Ho-oh.. O_o;

              A friend from Pikasurf told me that Ho-Oh probably turned into a man, errrr... played checkers with Ash's mum, then turned back into Ho-oh @@; Weird, huh? But it might just happen ^^;

              O_o

              I read that artice at pikasurf too...Cas seems very passionate that Ho-oh is Ash's real dad.

              I, on the other hand still hold on to the small possibility that it is Giovanni...

              Anyway it might be possible that ho-oh is ashes father but it seems more believable that Gyovanii would be but i dont know im just guessing -_-;;.

                Its pretty hard guessing who the heck is Ash's dad O_o;

                Ho-oh being Ash's dad is laughable, but then again....

                        Oh! Now I understand! I've read the article in Pikasurf!com and now all is in my face!
                        -
                        Now I'll talk about a boy named Sam (Samuel Oak).
                        When he was 14 years old, he have found a Celebi.
                        He traveled to past (around 300 years) and found a Ho-oH, who liked the boy and promised too protect he and his descendants.
                        When was 18 years old he separated of Celebi.
                        Some years later he found Mrs. Boss, and then birthed Giovanni Oak Boss.
                        Boss have been stopped the relation with Oak and continued to pay attention to her ONG (Team Rocket).
                        Giovanni married with Delia Ketchum and she turned pregnant.
                        They have not knew that was three twins (Ash, Gary and Daisy).
                        But some days before their birth Giovanni wanted to know all about his mother.
                        When the babies birthed, he decided to leave Delia and pick the babies.
                        When the hospital was near the close time he picked Gary and Daisy, when he returned to pick Ash, the hospital closed.
                        Giovanni discovered that his mother was a bad person, liked not the idea of create the children (Gary and Daisy).
                        He left the babies with his father (Sam Oak) and they was created like Oaks, and not Bosses.
                        Delia did that Ash thought that his father tried to be the Pokmon League Champion (he always watched the Pokmon League battles in TV).
                        Oak has moved to Pallet, and since this day he, Hale and Delia have turned friends together and "forever"...
                        -
                        Oh, I don't speak English, but we (my dictionary and I) did our best. Obviously, have many things that can be changed. Lance could be bro of Giovanni, and Gio did that to show to his mom how he worth to direct the Viridian Gym (Mrs. Boss picked Lance from the hospital too), or the gym could be hereditary, showing as Gary turned the Viridian Gymnasy Leader. Or all this is a lie and the Pokmon World don't exists neither in another dimension!!!...

                            Personally I think Ash's father is Goku from DBZ...ever notice how alike they are ESPECIALLY in looks :laugh:

                            The Ho-Oh idea seriously cracked me up XD

                            Professor Oak is a possibility too, hehehehehe! ;)

                              Lol, I thought about Professor Oak too. Only because I've heard of too many Delia + Professor Oak stories. >_>; But then Ash would be... GARY'S UNCLE!!!!

                                  I'm pretty sure there's one of these topics active at every single Pokemon messageboard in exsistance. x.x At Serebii.net, people are thinking the same thing.

                                  Me? I can say confidently that Satoshi's father and grandfather are nothing more than wandering Pokemon trainers who lack legal training licences. That's what it says in 'Pocket Monsters - The Animation', and, although the stubborn fanbase likes to deny every word in that book, it's still an official source.

                                  Ehm... But nobody ever listens to me on this issue, so continue. x.x()

                                    When you are in Ilex forest, look for Celebi. It's really easy to spot Celebi. The hard part is to find Ilex forest on Earth! You'll never find me! HAHAHAHAHA! How'd you get here?

                                        Well, it doesn't say for certain in anything I know of. I have a feeling that was intended. It does add a bit of mystery. Well, I think that we can assume he is, or was, at the very least, human. If not, then that's too much detail. I can't say they'd bring him back. That'd add some sort of religion to Pokemon, which many authors discourage themselves from doing. As for his human form, it's a rather big mystery. I assume he is not divorced or something of the sort because the series really lacks any of the more problematic issues of real life. He could be dead. However, my guess is that he is off somewhere and that, perhaps, there will be a reunion. It certainly would be interesting. Of course, there is a big chance that this is just something which remains a mystery forever. I'll stick with that last bit. Pokemon is just not too filled with the realities of life, and a "long lost parent" may or may not be pushing that limit.

                                          I always had a feeling that Ash's dad was either Giovanni or some other known character, but now I think his dad is a trainer or gym leader in Hoenn or in a future region. I think I remember reading something about his dad being in Hoenn for sure, but I don't know...
