He is based on a combination of the character of Leonardo Medici Bundle from the anime Sengoku Majin GoShogun and 弁天小僧菊之介 Sarasvati boy Kikunosuke from the kabuki 『白波五人男』 The Five Scoundrels of White Waves.

Please explain how this conclusion was reached. - 振霖T 03:05, 14 October 2005 (CDT)

Here on the late Encyclopedia Pokemonica. --Argy 20:20, 15 October 2005 (CDT)
Hmm, it doesn't really offer any evidence there either. Of course, Sonansu's model is easy enough to recognise, but... - 振霖T 00:45, 16 October 2005 (CDT)

Weezing, Victreebel, Cacnea, Chimecho, Mime Jr., Carnivine... half of his main Pokémon have been Plant-type. Is that enough to qualify him for the Plant-type trainer category? --Pie ~ 22:47, 15 May 2007 (UTC)

I'd imagine so. As the seasons progressed, he diverged to more Grass-types while Jessie took mainly Poison-types. If she's a Poison trainer, he should be a Grass trainer. --TTEchidna 00:05, 16 May 2007 (UTC)
    • The reason I added Jesse as a Poison-type trainer is because she specifically said she prefered Poison-type Pokemon in the Koga episode. Has James ever said anything to that effect regarding Grass-types?
Natane seemed to think he is a Grass-type trainer. - 振霖T 07:33, 16 May 2007 (UTC)


Should we include Meowth?--KukiTalk 16:02, 8 June 2008 (UTC)

No, since he isn't owned by the Team Rocket memebers and if you remember in one episode that it was Meowth's own choice to join. He wasnt captured by a member and forced to work for them.

Isn't James the only character besides Ash to have a Pokèmon in training? Why don't we include that? --CoreyLynch 14:53, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

Important! (Regarding James' or James's)

After reading a headline in Newsday, it is confirmed that you DO NOT need the s after in apostrophe for something belonging to James, for example.

To quote the headline "YANKS' BATS QUIETED BY BLUE JAYS"

We need to change all articles pertaining to James back to James_____--KukiTalk 19:06, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

That's because Yanks is the plural of Yank. If James were the plural of Jame, you'd be correct. But unless James is revealed to be some sort of alien composed of millions of tiny Jame beings (which would be totally awesome, by the way), it all stays as "James's."
Besides, newspapers are just as capable of screwing up as the rest of us. --Martonimos((Argh|Blargh)) 19:08, 16 July 2008 (UTC)
No, when it said Yanks' it was talking about more than one person. Plural nouns only get an apostrophe: the birds' nests (more than one bird with one nest each) and singular nouns get 's like: the bird's nests (one bird owning multiple nests). Learn the rules of grammar. MoldyOrange 19:12, 16 July 2008 (UTC)
Apologies for the edit conflicts, Moldy. Anyway, I've spent a lot of time researching this, as I have to use the posessive form of Samus in my fanfics a lot. --Martonimos((Argh|Blargh)) 19:14, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, I realized, sorry bout that--KukiTalk 19:16, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

's cool. --Martonimos((Argh|Blargh)) 19:27, 16 July 2008 (UTC)


Could any upload a sprite of Jessie and/or James ? ShinyPiKa 22:27, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

Ask Taviource or Kenji-Girl--KukiTalk 23:05, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

Why would you want a sprite for them? Do you mean the ones from Yellow? --ケンジガール 01:19, 10 August 2008 (UTC)
Yes ShinyPiKa 15:34, 11 August 2008 (UTC)
Aww dangit.... I don't have them... neh. Sorry. R.A. Hunter B. 18:58, 20 September 2008 (UTC)


Can somebody please fix the James article page? The side menu is now at the bottom of the page, and the text for it has been shrunk. R.A. Hunter B. 03:49, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

the same with Jessie's----ultamatecharizard


In the article it says that James hasn't achieved much, but in the Chronicles episode Training Daze he and Jessie were promoted and got their white uniforms. Jessie and James are higher up than a regular Team Rocket member. Should this be mentioned? Taromon777 23:24, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

They are not higher than others, in fact, Giovanni pushes them away into foreign places to get rid of them, if I remember correctly. The Dark Fiddler - Nos hablamos? 23:25, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

Should we...

Should we add that James is often offended by his own pokemon? (Victreebel, and later Cacnea and Carnivine)--tobytse 13:22, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

I think we should.--Maii{{MS|471|Glaceon}} 17:38, 16 October 2009 (UTC)Maii


I don't want to start an edit war. XD So i'm bringing it up here. His hair appears blue in the TCG artwork, but in the anime it's clearly periwinkle. I brought it up in photoshop, and it's directly between the blue and purple section of the color scale, leaning towards purple. There's been numerous debates on his hair color in the fandom, and no one can ever seem to come to a compromise. So i looked it up, asked various art teachers in my district, and they all said his hair doesn't fit into either category. So i looked up what color it is, and it's periwinkle. Even if he has been said to have blue hair by characters, they're simplifying it. So i think we should put it as periwinkle, seeing as if we put either "blue" or "purple" we'd be incorrect. CherryParanoia 06:33, 27 November 2009 (UTC)

I'd like to know just when someone in the anime called it blue. It's clearly lavender. Not sure where CherryParanoia is getting periwinkle from, but that's incorrect as well. --Rocket Girl 06:42, 27 November 2009 (UTC)

If we used Crayola color names in the character infoboxes there would be no end to the arguments that would be had. Blue may be simplifying it, but simple is good. 梅子 06:53, 27 November 2009 (UTC)
Just like to point out: I just did that on photoshop with the image from the bulba page. First shows his hair being between blue and pink. Second showing where his hair comes up on the color scale (between purple and blue). Last showing Periwinkle. Which i now realize it blatantly isn't. It's more of a Blue-Violet. So i think we should put it as that. CherryParanoia 06:56, 27 November 2009 (UTC)
The Magikarp salesman once referred to him as "blue haired young man." in the anime. Technically, Misty's hair is orange, yet we still refer to it as red. Let's try not to be knit picky about it. --ケンジガール 07:10, 27 November 2009 (UTC)
But its an issue commonly argued in the fandom (and orange hair is normally called Red IRL, so that makes sense). And was that dub-added about the hair? Can't trust dub added things. And even if it was in the japanese, they do not commonly use more in-depth words for color (as i learned in class). Really, to end the fighting (and make both sides happy) we should just put it as Blue-Violet. Because Blue will anger people (who commonly bug me to change the page) and Purple will bug people (like you) so lets compromise. CherryParanoia 07:17, 27 November 2009 (UTC)
C'mon, i was trying to be a good editter and make this work. =_= A compromise was what i think this needs, considering no one will ever agree on his hair color. Everyone i know in the #teamrocket room says his hair is lavender, but you people here say blue. So i was making a compromise instead of getting into an edit war. Can we talk it out and make it work? I already showed evidence it isn't blue, at least in the anime. So we need to find some sort of compromise so an edit war doesn't begin... --CherryParanoia 21:07, 28 November 2009 (UTC)
Unless the Magikarp salesman said that in Japanese I don't think that should count. --Rocket Girl 21:13, 28 November 2009 (UTC)
People, people... It's just HAIR. Calm down. The admins have spoken. It stays blue. --ケンジガール 21:44, 28 November 2009 (UTC)
Not to be mean or anything, but really. Because you're admin doesn't mean you're right. And i'm not saying either of us are right. Which is why i ask for a compromise on a subject thats ALWAYS argued. If we compromise here, then maybe everyone will stop arguing in chatrooms, in the forums. We need to take a neutral view in this page, not taking one side and saying "i'm right because i'm the admin." So we need to have a compromise on the matter. --CherryParanoia 22:16, 28 November 2009 (UTC)
Just pointing out that Kenji-girl said "admins" - plural. Chances are that it was discussed with the other admins too. 梅子 22:22, 28 November 2009 (UTC)
If it was something that was really important, then of course we would discuss it with the user. When it's about a character's hair color... not so much. Please just let it go already. --ケンジガール 00:30, 29 November 2009 (UTC)
It's just a commonly debated topic, so i hoped we'd take a neutral stance. Don't say i didn't warn you. o_o;; --CherryParanoia 01:03, 29 November 2009 (UTC)
Unless you're looking too much into it, his hair's blue. I don't care the exact hex code. His eyes are neon green, we just call them green. Ash's eyes are brown, not "rustic umber" or some bullcrap like that. Keep it simple. TTEchidna 01:12, 29 November 2009 (UTC)
I know that, which is why i stopped my periwinkle arguement. XD And his hair is too light and washed out to know exactly what color, which is why i prompted for a compromised. The hex code says its purple, but it appears blue too, which is why i wanted a compromise. But i'm letting it go for now, just understand i'm only trying to stop any edit war that may happen. There's a bigger debate on the subject than i think you guys realize XD --CherryParanoia 02:08, 29 November 2009 (UTC)
Considering this hasn't been a problem on this site, and this does not seem to be a big "debate" on any of the popular forums, I think we will be fine. Not to mention I don't see how anyone can call it Lavender. Lavender is almost as dark as purple, and his hair is light. --HoennMaster 02:37, 29 November 2009 (UTC)
Really is it that hard for people to determine? First impressions, in my layman's opinion I have never thought of it as anything but blue until I saw this rant with people over-analyzing the whole thing. I feel that if I took a random cut (from the picture) of his hair and asked people its color, they would say blue with only the odd art student who could come up with crazy colors like "periwinkle" -- D558 06:08, 18 December 2009 (UTC)
