Personality: Pokemon Jessie
As a member of Team Rocket, Jessie is uncaring and cruel toward people and Pokemon Jessie. She only cares is a promotion with James and Meowth. Jessie is ignorant of capturing Pokemon including Ash’s Pikachu and defeated by sending flying to space. She has a rivalry between her and Cassidy due to Cassidy’s superiority to Jessie of being a loser due to her low rank and failure of capturing Pokemon. She has good terms with James and Meowth.
Despite of Giovanni looking down on her and her partners due to their failures, she is still loyal and does whatever means to ensure promotion. Jessie is interested of Pokemon Contests and Performer to ensure to win ribbons and princess’ keys. Jessie has hostility of the other evil organization such as Team Aqua, Team Magma, Team Galactic, Team Plasma, Team Flare, and Team Skull, and Pokemon poachers or hunters such as Pokemon Hunter J because it is Team Rocket’s job to steal Pokemon.
Her First Appearance: Pokemon Jessie
Pokemon Jessie first jumped onto TV screens in the second episode of Pokèmon’s first season “Pokémon Emergency!” The episode saw Ash Ketchum, the lead protagonist, head to Viridian City in the hopes of healing his badly injured Pikachu. Unfortunately for the young Pokè-trainer, it just so happened that the city was under siege by Team Rocket, who was there to steal rare Pokèmon and look good while doing it.
Jessie is first introduced when she and Team Rocket ransack the hospital, through the roof no less! Shockingly (pun absolutely intended) they’re beaten back by a group of Pikachus. It was a humiliating defeat of the kind that the group would come to be known for but was an impactful introduction to some of the show’s most entertaining recurring villains.
She loves to Sing: Pokemon Jessie
Jessie and James are known for their dramatic flair, which even extends to musical numbers. Whenever the beat drops, Jessie is ready to belt out a tune, especially if it’s about catching Pikachu or annoying Pika’s Pokèmon trainer, Ash. In The Song of Jigglypuff, she performs a particularly outrageous one with her teammate in sailor-inspired gear. In it, her classical vanity comes out as she sings that she’s the “gorgeous one.” That’s far from the only ditty she’s performed, though—the most well-known hit is likely Double Trouble, which featured in many episodes of the English dub of the anime thanks to the Pikachu’s Jukebox segment.
Most Prolific Female Pokèmon Character of All Time
Jessie isn’t just a fashion icon, singing star, survivor, and all-time great Pokèmon character, she’s also broken boundaries for a female character in the franchise. She’s the only female character who’s been in all 23 Pokèmon movies, from 1998’s Pokémon: The First Movie to 2020’s Pokèmon the Movie: Secrets of the Jungle. She holds that impressive record in the anime series too, as the only female character appearing in every generation. It’s no surprise that she’s become such an iconic and beloved character when she’s been on screens causing chaos for decades. She’s still looking good doing it, too. We salute you, Jessie!
