    Q: Who is Ash's father?
    A. No one truly knows, really.

    He was mentioned, along with Ash's grandfather (Japanese version only) in OS002. That was the first and last time he's mentioned in the show. There's absolutely no solid evidence to back up all the crazy crack theories and until the writers decide to reveal the identity of this mystery man - or mystery men, rather - we'll never know who they REALLY are. We know that he's a Pokémon Trainer, that's for certain.

    Novelizations of the anime by Takeshi Shudou, one of the writers for the original series, say that Ash's father left Delia shortly before Ash’s birth, stating that he “wants to become a Pokémon Trainer†(although, whether or not the novel should be considered "canon" is debated among fans). In a recent interview with Masamitsu Hidaka, a storyboard artist for the anime, the above is confirmed and is very much true - Ash's father and grandfather are trainers.
    At the end of the day, that's all the discussion will bring forth plus some more ridiculous fan theories that will only confuse other people further. It's not that we don't allow any thread that is covered by the FAQs posts, but in this case, where we haven't received any new info whatsoever since all the way back in 1997, it makes no sense in making a thread about it again. Content-wise, it'll be the same as the 9239832 threads on Ash's father that were made in the time frame between 2004-2010. I know it's not your fault that you're "late to the party", but I'll have to ask you to wait until we get new information on Ash's father... if that ever happens.
