    Default Will Ash's father ever appear?

    Does anyone wish Ash's father should be revealed?

    I would love to see Mewtwo as his partner just like Ash with Pikachu.

    Considering he was never in the show I'm assuming he walked out on Ash and Delia Ketchum for either a journey or with another woman.

    Well, Hidaka did say Ash's dad would only appear when they feel the need of further developing his character. While I don't see it happening anytime soon, I'm not ruling out the possibility.

    After all these years? Doubt it at this point. If they wanted him to appear they would have done it already

    I wouldn't rule it out, but I highly doubt it at this point. The anime needs to go to a completely different direction if Ash's father is going to be revealed.

    I doubt it. They probably never have even had any intentions of making him appear anyways.
    Apparently Serena sucks, smh -_-

    They haven't even mentioned his father in roughly 18 years, they have no obligation to do so at this point.

    He's too irrelevant of a character now.

    Giovanni? You'd think there would be done hints or clues in OS or BW. Or that he would show hesitation in killing his supposed son

    I doubt we'll see his dad, but who knows. Maybe Ash's dad was Silver.

    Silver is too young t be Ash's father and has no resemblance,he was also already in the anime where it was said he was in a pokemon battle with Jimmy.

    I think they meant the Silver from The Search for the Legend. ^^;

    No, not that Silver. The Silver that Ritchie met I think is what he was referring to.

    I wish Ash's father appeared. He could be an older "Red". He and Mewtwo can be later partners while Ash is on his journey.

    The only cannon reference Ash's father that I'm aware of are in the novelisation of the anime - Pocket Monsters: The Animation written in 1997, where during the prologue Delia reveals Ash's father is a trainer on a journey.

    As for the anime itself - They've had 20 years and 19 seasons to introduce a character as Ash's father and it hasn't happened. Unless they've run out of things to writer filler about - and given we've had time travelling Rotom and supervillan locksmiths I doubt that's the case - I can't see any need to develop a plot around Ash's father.

    What purpose would it serve other than drama - as far as we know Ash's father hasn't been a part of his life for most of the series, so him walking in know would turn the anime from an adventure series to a soap opera.

    Ash's father would have a connection to Giovanni as his arch-enemy.

    Highly unlikely, especially at this point, but then again it all depends on what the writer's feel like.
    If you believe in Jesus Christ put this in your profile and don't just ignore this, because in the Bible it says,
    If you deny me, I will deny you in front of my Father at the gates of Heaven.

    † I am a Christian, and not ashamed to admit it! Copy and paste this if you are too.†

    Frankly, I wouldn't even be surprised if the writers forgot that Satoshi even has a dad.

    Maybe he is a Dimentional Beast and he has no father since he is adopted, the writers are apable of pulling off anything right now

    At this point, I don't think they really care. It would be kinda interesting though, I guess.

    We will never see Ash's dad because he fell into a Gorilla Pit...

    In all honesty, bad humor aside, I doubt we'll ever see his father.

    Depending on who his father is he may have already appeared in the Anime. For me Ash looks similar to Spencer Hale, Professor Oak. Koga or Giovanni. I don't think they will mention it though.
