Jessie made a cameo appearance alongside James as a part of Team Rocket in Ash Ketchum vs Charles Darwin. She was portrayed by Mary Doodles.

Information on the cameo

Jessica (Japanese: ムサシ Musashi), commonly known as Jessie, is a member of Team Rocket, more specifically part of a trio with James and Meowth, who follows Ash Ketchum everywhere on his journey in order to steal his Pikachu. She has also appeared alongside James in the Yellow version of the Pokémon game franchise as bosses.

Jessie was known to be very judgemental and is also prone to explosive anger. She values her appearance, and she can get mad when her face or hair is vandalised, and would beat up a Pokémon like Meowth if that coincided. She also seemed to have a special preference for snake-like Pokémon, having owned both an Arbok and a Seviper at certain points in the series. Other Pokemon she's owned include Wobbuffet which constantly let's itself out of its pokeball, Dustox and Yanmega which she has often used in Pokemon Contests, and Mimikyu which has a large dislike for Ash's Pikachu. In each episode of the Pokémon anime, she, James, and Meowth get flung away saying, "We're blasting off again!", when they are defeated.

Appearance in the rap battle

Jessie, alongside James, appeared in Ash Ketchum's first verse during the line, "When it's time to train, I turn to Pikachu!" When he says the line, "But when I need a weak verse, I choose you!", Team Rocket can be seen sneaking behind Ketchum and attempting to capture his Pikachu. At the end of the line, Pikachu thunder-shocks the two, causing them to "blast off" and briefly appear behind the HMS Beagle as they launch to the sky.


  • A preview of Jessie and James was shown in a video of Nice Peter, along with Ash Ketchum and his Pikachu in the background.[1]
  • Along with James, she is the ninth/tenth character to cross the "line" (the separation of the two backgrounds in a side-to-side scene) in a battle.
