James - Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia
the four-volume run saw Ash and Pikachu get into all kinds of trouble, but its last issues saw Jessie and James make their relationship official. In The School of Hard Knocks, Jessie and James told Meowth that while they were .. of affection are evidence of James' strong relationships with his Pokémon. Jessie, Meowth and James are a group of independent field agents that operate to his close friend which proves their relationship, she decides to leave and.
His abuse at the hands of Jessebelle instilled in him a submissive disposition, as seen in his interactions with Jessie. While it may have been funny to us as children, his background makes it much more depressing.
'Pokemon': Remember When James Got Jessie Pregnant?
While she performed well, she was human after all, and did not possess the required abilities to pass. This included using the 'Sing' move in her practice. Sadly, she flunked out of this school too, but it was also where she first met James. Known for swinging a chain above her head while riding, she earned the nickname "Chainer Jessie. Her beauty attracted many suitors, and as such she went out with several boyfriends, all of whom treated her pretty badly and eventually left her. At one point she was also a Ninja.
After this roller coaster of a life, she finally joined Team Rocket, as did James at a different time. However, in the Japanese version, Jessie is called Musashi and James is Kojiro, both after ancient Japanese rival swordmasters.
Musashi actually killed Kojiro in a fight, which might explain why Jessie, the more dominant character, is named after the victor. But as we already know, James' more meek disposition can also be credited to his younger days. The connection may seem unclear, until you find out that the ship had a counterpart called Musashi.
However, there was one time that the innocence of the show was tainted by none other than the Team Rocket duo itself, specifically James. In an episode called Beauty and the Beach, Misty is competing in a beauty contest which involves posing in a bikini.
Jessie and James also enter, and the latter, having a notorious affinity for cross-dressing, decides to don a pair of inflatable He even mocks Misty for her small cup size. The whole episode was deemed too inappropriate for a Western release, and never aired in America, mostly thanks to James' outfit. When they get caught up in attacking Ash and Pikachu, the Mareanie's feelings towards James causes it to fight as hard as hard as it can. Ash's surprise is understandable, but the looks of shock on Team Rocket's faces is priceless.
Of course, a Bewear shows up and whisks away the villains before they can take Pikachu, so no harm no foul? So, they both accepted to work together and test the waters.
They were competitive at first when it came to the training exercises, but discovered they were having a lot of fun being together. When they were sent on an actual mission, that's when they really opened up to each other about how they were internally struggling.
They found each other. They saw that they were both hurting inside, and found happiness in each other.
Pokémon: Dark Facts You Don’t Want To Know About Jessie And James
Something started to spark. After successfully completing that mission and feeling closer than ever, they were sent on another to steal the infamous Red Snorlax. Unfortunately, James fell through a trap door, where Jessie holds onto him. The alarm sounds, and he tries to let go, telling her to get away, but she refuses and stays with him. They have a heart to heart conversation about the promises they made on their previous mission, and Jessie finds the strength to pull him up, where he lands on top of her, and they stare into each other's eyes, maybe even getting lost in them.
When she finds out about this in a brilliantly written scene where Rumika grew up to look exactly like her, she seems uncertain. Maybe even a little jealous. It's good symbolism about him picking personality over looks, since Jessie and Rumika are totally different, while the whole joke is that they could be twins.
I would like to point out that in this WHOLE episode we were expecting a promise of some sort—mainly between James and Rumika, but instead, at the end, we got ourselves a promise between Jessie and James. After Jessie and Meowth were kicked out of the house by Rumika, they are seen walking and talking. Getting back to the scene, James recites the first line of the motto. Their motto means togetherness and unity with each other.
It means that they're together and fighting together. Jessie asks him why he came back, and he says that money doesn't matter, and there's always next time. Now, the next lines are important, so I'm comparing them in both the English Dub and the Japanese version. Double trouble time, right?#RELATIONSHIPGOALS w/ Eric & Jessie - Episode 1
Sounds great to me, James. Once again, their motto means unity. That they fight together. Good relations from now on, right, Jessie? Of course, James In Japanese, he uses "yoroshiku" which can mean meeting someone for the first time.
Almost like a marriage is renewing your relationship, they engaged in a symbolic marriage, or promise. We got the promise we were expecting, but in an entirely different way with an entirely different girl.
Now you must be asking, "Um, Marriage and kids?! When did that happen!
