Delia Ketchum is a character appearing in the anime series.
Delia's first debut was in the first episode of the Pokémon Anime series. According to Takeshi Shudō's novelization, she runs Pallet Town's only restaurant, Pallet House, which she inherited from her mother. When she was younger, she dreamed of becoming both a model and a Pokémon Trainer, but abandoned those dreams to run the restaurant after Ash was born.
Delia is a kind and caring mother, but when she's upset or angry she is very vocal about it. She rarely battles other Pokémon but she made an exception in Showdown at the Oak Corral where Butch and Cassidy tried to steal Poké Balls belonging to Ash and other trainers. She, Professor Oak and Tracey stopped them with a Pokémon battle. After Scyther couldn't battle anymore, Delia sent Mimey to battle Cassidy's Houndour who was about to use its Bite attack. Delia had Mimey use his Double Slap on it.
Being strict sometimes, during Pokémon: Indigo League, she constantly reminds Ash to change his underwear every day. She is also a good cook and can cook anything. She also helped Brock after Professor Ivy rejected him. She has a Mr. Mime nicknamed Mimey and she has him clean the house for her while she makes breakfast or does the dishes. One of her most famous dishes that is favored by Ash is her "Double deep dish pizza pot pie".
Her most notable appearance is Pokémon 3: The Spell of the Unown, in which she is kidnapped by an Entei to be Molly Hale's mother. It is unknown who her husband is, though one of the designers of the Pokémon anime say that Ash's father is a trainer on his own journey. Delia went with Ash on a trip to the Unova Region.

Season 19: XYZ
Delia was talking to the heroes with Professor Oak when Ash contacted them, telling that he was doing fine. Delia apologized to Serena, Clemont and Bonnie, thinking that he has been a terrible burden on them, but they were instead grateful for what he has done for them. Ash then told her that he had so many things to tell her and that he was taking a flight home later that afternoon. Delia told Ash to take care on his way home and told the rest to visit Pallet Town when they have the time.
