Kitty May 7th, , Timbjerr May 7th, , I don't think it is possible for a man and a woman to be together as long as they have and not form some sort of romantic relationship. Phoenix Boy May 7th, , 1: It's just, they HAVE been together a long time I'm able to admit that they're great friends, but a couple?
I'd like to first cite the Flaming Moltres episode first off. Don't tell me a normal man would wear that. Second, note his love of cross dressing, although it has not been seen in a while. He loves the cross dressing. I the manga I'm willing to admit that they're romantically involved, but in the show?
He has an abiding love of theatre and modern dance, stereotypically gay grounds for men. But what is a cartoon if not stereotypical? As for the whole "Sweetheart" thing, I know no straight man who calls those he's romantically involved with "sweetheart. I reiterate my point that James. Jess May 7th, , 6: And Jessie has no past but she has James. Berkut Nightwolf May 7th, , 8: Being a bit of a Dodger myself, I agree with the speculation with James being a homosexual.
I do this it's a valid, debatable statement. I think there is really nothing wrong with that either. I think they're more, how shall I say I think that's a good term to put it as. Though I am willing to accept the fact that one day, my speculation may be proven wrong.
But so far, many signs point to him being a homosexual. Porygon May 8th, , One of them would have to be gay for nothing to happen XD Jeikobu May 8th, , Not only does he love to cross dress, but remember the movie "The Power of One"?
Unless 4Kids dubbed the line this way for fun, it's proof Kojiro's gay. Jeremy May 8th, , Does anybody remember the episode where there was a talking Gastly? And James saw the maiden that was turn to stong?
James is definitely straight. Not that there's anything wrong with being gay James just isn't though. The Ghost of Maiden's Peak is the episode you're talking about. And also in the episode School of Hard Knocks he liked that girl Gizelle.
He is not gay. And there is nothing wrong with cross dressing either Jesse cross dresses to ya know Besides, how many straight men do you know who cross dress. And the fact that Jesse doesn't means nothing to the current discussion.
Furthemore, on the off-chance that James isn't gay, in the same episode Jessse is mad at the Gastly for the way that the illusionary woman "Gets her men. Jesse hold no interest in James, and vice versa. Also, there's the evidence from P2k, which had a similar line in Japanese.
Also, note the banned Holiday at Aucopulco. Don't tell me that a straight man, even one who cross dresses would wear THAT. I haven't seen School of Hard Knocks in a while, I'll have to check that out. In one of the older posts, someone said an episode contained the evidence that he's straight.
I believe it went like this I'm not that kinda guy! I don't know for sure. Regardless, James isn't gay. And how the heck can you think that Gastly is male in that episode? It doesn't make sense! Mime rentals is a female! Ok, getting off topic. If Jessie and James weren't a couple now, I'm pretty sure that they will be. For some strange and odd reason, they seem like they belong to each other I sure don't remember it Mime is it's lousy dub name.
Remember these things are translated from Japanese, and "Mr. Mime"'s real name romanized is Barriered. By the way, on the Gastly thing, it was in the shape of a woman.
I've only seen the ep once but if I recall Takeshi and Kojiro had no idea is was a demon, they just thought it was a beautiful woman. I still think Kojiro's gay but that ep isn't very good evidence.
Chairman Kaga May 9th, , 7: Although he does seem to be terrified of women at times, he has been infatuated with others James had no idea that the girl was a Gastly on The Ghost of Maiden's Peak, therefore, he had every right to be as enthralled with her looks as he was. I'm sure there have been other instances of his showing affection for a woman, but he's never shown affection for a man on the show. I think the writers just want to make him a bumbling servant to Jessie who has no cares in the world except capturing Pikachu I think that James and Jessie would make a nice couple, and if the show was made for teenagers instead of little children, I bet they would have a relationship, if even a small one, something like James liking Jessie but Jessie not caring for James.
Does anyone remember James's voice from the early episodes? He seemed very masculine back then I think James was sort of scarred for life after his arranged marriage to Jezebelle, and wanted nothing to do with romance whatsoever. He crossdresses because his profession of thief demands it at times, and I haven't ever seen him crossdress when he hasn't had to, but I reiterate my main point that he's quite straight.
Just like Chairman Kaga said.. Just like Brock did. He never fell in love with any guy on the show. And yeah he's afraid of women because he was traumatized by Jessebell when he was a child. They make him seem more feminine because Jesse is supposed to be like the leader of Team Rocket. It has nothing to do with him being gay. Neither does the crossdressing or the rose. I did like the rose though It was his trademark. This thread really had nothing to do with the question of is James straight or not.
I don't believe he's gay though. But I have seen some affection between him and Jesse Escpecially around the time of the St. They would make an interesting couple Jeikobu May 9th, , 9: Interesting views, but as for the cross dressing part, in the instances where he has done so, many of the times he had the option to dress like a man, not a woman.
There's a Jouto episode where he's dressed like a bride rather than a groom, for example. And the one that often stands out for me is the "Fashion Flash" ep in the first season where Musashi's and Kojiro's outfits should be switched. I have more examples, but I think you get my point. Chairman Kaga May 9th, , 9: In the Johto episode that you mentioned, although I don't remember it right offhand, I think that in many cases James attempts to match Jessie's outfit was she wearing a bridal outfit also?
Since Jessie is the dominant member of the TR duo, she can probably get James to do whatever or dress however she wants him to But, might I add, this is James at his creepiest:
