  • This Jessie is from the alternate movie continuity, as Team Rocket makes a reference to chasing a Shiny Celebi through a jungle before arriving at Pasio.
  • Jessie is one of the few characters in Pokémon Masters EX who shares her English and Japanese voice actors with her main series anime counterpart.
  • Jessie is one of the few sync pairs with less than seven dialogues in the Pokémon Center, with only three.
  • Jessie and James are the only two non-Egg sync pairs to still lack an expanded sync grid.


Jessie's design is based on her appearance in the anime, as well as in Pokémon Yellow, Let's Go, Pikachu!, and Let's Go, Eevee!. During the original series of the anime, Arbok served as Jessie's signature Pokémon. It is also her only known Pokémon in the core series games. Arbok's Dex entry comes from Pokémon Ultra Sun.
