James' father is a character who first appeared in Pokémon: Indigo League. As previously stated, he is the father of James of the Team Rocket trio.


He and his wife had a happy life with their son, James. After James met Jessiebelle at a ball, James wrote a letter meant for Jessiebelle, so his parents gave him a chest to store the letter inside it.
