Member of Team Rocket, Jessie is always after Ash and his friends' Pokemon. With her comrades Meowth and James, she uses her Pokemon for bad intentions, and is always making clumsy mistakes to make her lose her goal or intention.


Jessie was born to a high-ranking Team Rocket member, but she grew up very poor. Because there wasn't enough food in the house, her mother would make Snowgasboard - elaborate meals made entirely out of snow, topped with a touch of soy sauce - whenever there was freshly-fallen snow on the ground. There were Sushi Snow Rolls, Snow Loaf, Ida-Snow potatoes with snow sour cream, and Snow Pudding for dessert. Jessie claims that "snow food is low in fat and helped me maintain my fabulous figure".

When Jessie was very young, her mother was called out on a special TR mission by Madam Boss (Giovanni's mother, and the founder of Team Rocket). Jessie's mom was the leader of a special expedition to find Mew on a snow-covered mountain. It is unknown whether she survived the trip; she is reported to have perished in an avalanche, but rumors suggest that she was saved by an Articuno.

Meanwhile, Jessie was growing up (presumably alone, or with another relative), but still without money. She had very bad luck with all holidays. First, her favorite (and only?) doll was "stolen" by a Jynx on Christmas Eve, and she never got any presents from Santa Claus since. Then, on Kids' Day, she didn't have the day off school, never had a swimming pool, and the only sandwiches she ever had were baloney with one slice. She was also the only girl who NEVER had a Princess Doll on Princess Day.

Jessie is very proud that she began her "acting career" very young... in first grade she portrayed a worm who lived inside a rotten apple. She can also sing (as heard in "The Song of Jigglypuff" and the song "Double Trouble") and dance, but she probably never had official lesson

When Jessie was a young teenager, she tried to become a nurse for Pokémon, but for some reason, her application couldn't be accepted. Determined to make her dream come true, she enrolled at a school for Pokémon Nurses ( Chansey) and attempted to learn Pokémon medicine. There, she befriended a clumsy but well-meaning Chansey whom she helped pass its education. However, the teacher at the school was very mean to Jessie. Even though Jessie had a knack for wrapping bandages, she fell asleep when the Chansey were using their "sing" attack to relax patients. The teacher yelled at her, which made Jessie very frustrated. Realizing that she could never become a Pokémon nurse, Jessie left the school. Before she left, however, her Chansey friend gave her half of its official nurse necklace, which Jessie still keeps.


Jessie was created by Satoshi Tajiri in 1996. Satoshi also created the Pokémon franchise as a whole, Jesse being included.

Character Evolution

Jessie mostly stayed "bad" throughout her appearance in the Pokémon World. She did have her moments of good acts and deeds, but for the most part her greedy mischievous side is shown. Even though Jessie and James were seen as comrades in the beginning, certain episodes and/or moments in the series showed special attention to the possible romantic relationship. Some scenes show indirect possibilities such as Jessie dressing up as a Duchess and James a Dutch, meaning they were together. Little moments like that hint that their could be some affection between the two, but it was never fully carried out in their appearances.
