* Expecting the Pokémon Company to acknowledge homo/bisexuality in a children's cartoon in America is farther off than "Lugia is Ash's father" or even "[[EveryoneIsJesusInPurgatory Ash is Jesus, Delia is the Virgin Mary, and Ash's Father is Arceus]]". When your WMG would involve not only improbable occurences InUniverse (which is pretty much a common feature of everything in the WMG section) but RealLife CharacterDerailment (not to mention putting yourself in the crosshairs of PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad), it can firmly be considered {{Jossed}}. Same with the "Dawn is a {{Transsexual}} and Ash's father" guess up there, also commented (and not by me) to be at least pushing the bounds of WMG sanity.

[[WMG: Jessie is Giovanni's illegitimate daughter.]]
Alternative to the above. It seems like too much of a stretch for Giovanni to continue tolerating Jessie and her friends because of what her mother did. Maybe Meowth because he's a rare talking Pokemon and James because he has a rich family, but James has cut off most of his ties with the family and Meowth [[CutLexLuthorACheck doesn't exploit his unique talent]]. Miyamoto must have meant something important to him. The first part of the CD Drama seems to take place 20 years ago, and Giovanni was already in his twenties(he could pass for forties now). Meaning Jessie would be five at the time. Also, we don't know who Jessie's father is and he's clearly not in the picture as she grew up.

Giovanni and Miyamoto fell in love as teenagers, and conceived Jessie. Madame Boss was ''very'' upset at this, and refused to let the two see each other. That and Miyamoto's death [[FreudianExcuse turned him into a bitter man]]. Though he's very ashamed by Jessie failing to live up to the reputation of the woman he loved, since she's his daughter he feels he's obligated to keep both her and her friend's job. He may actually care about him, [[JerkassFacade but acts indifferent]] so no-one can catches on to their relationship, much less Jessie. He'd be criticized with {{Nepotism}}, and his enemies would take advantage of it. Plus it's not like Jessie needs an ego boost.

[[WMG:Alternately, Misty's parents are dead]]
To be more specific, they were killed by Bug-types, hence her fear of them.

[[WMG: Ash and Pikachu have had something similar to the Bond Phenomenon since the very beginning.]]
But, unlike with Ash-Greninja, there's not any sort of visible change or effect - It only affects Pikachu's strength. While Pikachu's always a stronger than average, there's been times when he hasn't been able to get Team Rocket to blast off, only to be able to once again when Ash shows up. At other times, his strength takes a sudden nosedive when he and Ash are caught off-balance or get out of sync. When he and Ash work together perfectly, though, they can accomplish incredible feats, which has been seen time and time again.

According to the "Birth of Mewtwo" CD Drama, Jessie's mom Miyamoto was good friends with Madame Boss, Giovanni's mother and Team Rocket's original leader Madame Boss. She was also one of their best members. It also establishes that EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas. While he does want to fire the trio [[BadBoss or worse]], part of Giovanni feels that would disrespect both Miyamoto and Madame Boss' memories and thus keep her around. There's also the fact that since Jessie's mom died for Team Rocket and made her an orphan, he feels he owes her something. James and Meowth stick around because [[TrueCompanions they refuse to part ways]], and despite being ''very'' tempted to get rid of them can't go through with it [[PetTheDog due to thing with Miyamoto]].

...with one of the earlier female protagonist, probably Misty (or maybe May). It's just never shown on-screen because relationships aren't the focus of Pokemon's main plot. By that logic, you could say that he got together with Misty at the end of Johto, and it just wasn't shown in those final scenes, giving them a long distance relationship (though any communication they've had is cut out because of being unnecessary to the plot) because Ash still wants to continue his journey as well, whilst Misty needs to look after the Cerulean Gym.

[[WMG: Brock got his Steelix back because it's no longer a Rock-type.]]
The Pewter Gym specializes in Rock-type, but Steelix looses its Rock typing after it evolves. As the result, it's barely used in battle and Forrest decided to return it back to Brock.

[[WMG: Brock or the Forrest, in the ''Sun and Moon'' era, has an Alolan Golem.]]
The regular Geodude that belonged to Brock evolved, and it's traded for an Alolan Graveler.

[[WMG: Misty and Tracey are seeing each other.]]
The two of them are the only ones of Ash's traveling companions that still live in close proximity to each other, and as both Pokémon Chronicles and ''The Dream Continues!'' shows, the two of them still frequently spend with each other. And eventually, their friendship blossomed into something more, helped by Misty's crush on Ash having faded [[AbsenceMakesTheHeartGoYonder after having spent so much time apart from him.]] Plus, since Ash & Serena is as canon a pairing as the Anime will probably ever portray, this provides Misty with a happy ending.
