==Biography==
  +
[[File:NewJ&J.png|thumb|left|152px|Jessie and James in the Unova region.]]
  +
In the anime, he is a common member of [[Team Rocket]] and in many ways, is the anime representation of the Male Agent. During his adventures in trying to capture [[Pikachu]], James is part of a unit made up of himself, [[Jessie]], and [[Team Rocket's Meowth|Meowth]]. Although born into a rich family with loving parents, he runs away from home to avoid [[Jessebelle]] to whom he was supposed to marry later on. With a very caring and thoughtful personality, James can sometimes have a hard time dealing with the "rotten things" he and his team mates do from various times to get what they want, but in the end he fulfill his obligations with less-admirable results, he also gives out information on Pokémon whenever Meowth cannot do it himself via Index cards. James is also a bottle cap collector as well.
   
==In the Anime==
+
Out of the Team Rocket Trio, James is the most emotional and most caring towards others, as well as his Pokémon. In A Hole Lotta Trouble, he told Ash that he just wanted to have a fair battle with him rather than resort to their dirty tricks suggested by Jessie and Meowth. In Training Daze, he takes it upon himself to help Meowth whenever he gets stuck in the Obstacle Courses. In episodes like [[AG147: Sweet Baby James|Sweet Baby James]] and [[DP054: Once There Were Greenfields|Once There Were Greenfield]], it also clearly shows his emotions and feelings towards his Pokémon when they are departing each other. It also shows his love and good cooperation with his Pokémon as seen in [[AG159: Off the Unbeaten Path|Off The Unbeaten Path]] and [[IL048: Holy Matrimony!|Holy Matrimony!]], with his Growlie and Mime Jr. He is especially even more careful and cautious with his [[James' Chimecho|Chimecho]], treating with additional care and not letting it suffer through battles, just like how Misty treats her Togepi. Due to His great care of his Pokémon, most of his Pokémon like to have physical contacts with him when his Pokémon came out of their PokéBall. He also tend to be good to people who treat him well, Like his grandparents as seen in the episode Sweet Baby James. He was also seen comforting May in that same episode while her Munchlax got sick too with his Chimecho in the same episode.

The same guy appeared in [[IL015: Battle Aboard the St. Anne|Battle aboard the St. Anne]] and [[JE030: Tricks of the Trade|Tricks of the Trade]].
 
 
As compared to the Team Rocket Trio, James is the most emotional and most caring towards others, as well as his Pokémon. In A Hole Lotta Trouble, he told Ash that he just want to have a fair battle with him rather than to do dirty tricks on them as suggested by Jessie and Meowth. In Training Daze, he is also the one always helping Meowth all along when Meowth gets stuck in the Obstacle Courses. In episodes like [[AG147: Sweet Baby James|Sweet Baby James]] and [[DP054: Once There Were Greenfields|Once There Were Greenfield]], it also clearly shows his emotions and feelings towards his Pokémon when they are departing each other. It also shows his love and good cooperation with his Pokémon as seen in [[AG159: Off the Unbeaten Path|Off The Unbeaten Path]] and [[IL048: Holy Matrimony|Holy Matrimony!]], with his Growlie and Mime Jr. He is especially even more careful and catious with his [[James' Chimecho|Chimecho]], treating with additional care and not letting it suffer through battles, just like how Misty treats her Togepi. Due to His great care of his Pokémon, most of his pokemons like to have physical contacts with him when his pokemons came out of their pokeball. He also tend to be good to people who treat him well, Like his grandparents as seen in the episode Sweet Baby James. He was also seen comforting May in that same episode while her Munchlax got sick too with his Chimecho in the same episode.
 
   
 
As of his, Jessie's and Meowth's promotion and transfer to Unova, James has become a highly skilled stealth artist, an excellent hacker and is often successful in many missions with his team mates to the point of the trio becoming a serious enemy for Ash and co. The trio were key in Team Rocket's Meteonite plan, taking order directly from Giovanni himself as well as his secretary. James and his team-mates worked together with [[Pierce]] and met [[Doctor Zager]]. Once the plan culminated, James and his team-mates were asked to be as they please in Unova, so they continued working hard to do Team Rocket good and now work closely with Zager. Ash has also become less important to them but they will still antagonize him if he interferes in their plans.

==Trivia==
*James most recurring Pokémon are {{type|Grass}}-Type. It is also interesting to point out that said Pokémon are the ones who show the most affection towards him via physical contact, even if James is annoyed at it. His friendly relationship with [[Gardenia]] also seem to emphasize that, as she claims that "those who own Grass Pokémon cannot be so evil", which is also true to some point if one considers he is the "less" evil member of the trio.

*In Pokémon XD: Gale Of Darkness, there is a trainer in Mt. Battle in zone 35 that has a Cacnea and Chimecho, who asks if you've seen anyone with the same Pokémon. This is an obvious nod to James, when he had those Pokémon in the Hoenn region.

BiographyEdit

NewJ&J

Jessie and James in the Unova region.

In the anime, he is a common member of Team Rocket and in many ways, is the anime representation of the Male Agent. During his adventures in trying to capture Pikachu, James is part of a unit made up of himself, Jessie, and Meowth. Although born into a rich family with loving parents, he runs away from home to avoid Jessebelle to whom he was supposed to marry later on. With a very caring and thoughtful personality, James can sometimes have a hard time dealing with the "rotten things" he and his team mates do from various times to get what they want, but in the end he fulfill his obligations with less-admirable results, he also gives out information on Pokémon whenever Meowth cannot do it himself via Index cards. James is also a bottle cap collector as well.

Out of the Team Rocket Trio, James is the most emotional and most caring towards others, as well as his Pokémon. In A Hole Lotta Trouble, he told Ash that he just wanted to have a fair battle with him rather than resort to their dirty tricks suggested by Jessie and Meowth. In Training Daze, he takes it upon himself to help Meowth whenever he gets stuck in the Obstacle Courses. In episodes like Sweet Baby James and Once There Were Greenfield, it also clearly shows his emotions and feelings towards his Pokémon when they are departing each other. It also shows his love and good cooperation with his Pokémon as seen in Off The Unbeaten Path and Holy Matrimony!, with his Growlie and Mime Jr. He is especially even more careful and cautious with his Chimecho, treating with additional care and not letting it suffer through battles, just like how Misty treats her Togepi. Due to His great care of his Pokémon, most of his Pokémon like to have physical contacts with him when his Pokémon came out of their PokéBall. He also tend to be good to people who treat him well, Like his grandparents as seen in the episode Sweet Baby James. He was also seen comforting May in that same episode while her Munchlax got sick too with his Chimecho in the same episode.

As of his, Jessie's and Meowth's promotion and transfer to Unova, James has become a highly skilled stealth artist, an excellent hacker and is often successful in many missions with his team mates to the point of the trio becoming a serious enemy for Ash and co. The trio were key in Team Rocket's Meteonite plan, taking order directly from Giovanni himself as well as his secretary. James and his team-mates worked together with Pierce and met Doctor Zager. Once the plan culminated, James and his team-mates were asked to be as they please in Unova, so they continued working hard to do Team Rocket good and now work closely with Zager. Ash has also become less important to them but they will still antagonize him if he interferes in their plans.

PokémonEdit

On handEdit

Pokémon Information
James' Inkay
It is a Pokémon that loves to steal food. They encountered the Inkay when it was eating their sandwiches from the balloon. James uses this to his advantage, and catches Inkay with a PokéBall, much to Jessie and Meowth's dismay.
Inkay

At Team Rocket HQEdit

Pokémon Information
James Yamask
James captured a Yamask while he, Jessie, and Meowth searched for Giovanni. Yamask can use Shadow Ball, Haze, and Night Shade. It was later used as an emissary between Team Rocket and a trio of fellow Ghost-type Litwick. Unlike James' other Pokemon, Yamask doesn't give James painful affection like Carnivine and Cacnea. James's capture of this ghost-type signifies the serious tone the trio has taken in the Unova region.

Mime Jr James
James's Mime Jr. is the Pokémon James caught when he gave Chimecho to his grandparents. His Chimecho was sick and they gave him a replacement Pokémon for his Chimecho, Mime Jr. Jessie has borrowed Mime Jr. for Contests. James loves Mime Jr. so much. He thinks of her as his Chimecho. In the earlier times (before Sinnoh) Mime Jr. used to copy him. When Jessie and James is transported by Team Rocket to Unova, Mime Jr. was given to the Team Rocket Headquarters for safekeeping as it was a Pokémon not native there.

Pokémon Information
James' Carnivine
James's Carnivine was the first Pokémon that James obtained in the Sinnoh region. It made its debut in "Two Degrees of Separation". James released him from its Poké Ball after remembering that he left it in a summer cottage years ago. Carnivine tends to jump out and sucks on James's head, a habit that replaced Cacnea's painful hugs. James originally caught Carnivine in the Great Marsh as a boy when it appeared to be quite injured, as mentioned in a flashback. It was later left at Team Rocket Headquarters as it was not native to the Unova region, safeguarded until James returns.

In TrainingEdit

Pokémon Information
James's Cacnea
Every time which Cacnea came out of James' Poké Ball it used to hug him tight with it's needles, causing James pain. Cacnea was used in many battles but went to train with Gardenia to master its Drain Punch. When Cacnea left, James was extremely upset as it the first Pokemon he captured after Weezing left. It is later learned Cacnea mastered Drain Punch. However, as James, Meowth and Jessie continue to follow Ash to different regions, it is highly unlikely James will ever see Cacnea again.

TriviaEdit

  • James' most recurring Pokémon are Grass-Type. It is also interesting to point out that said Pokémon are the ones who show the most affection towards him via physical contact, even if James is annoyed with it. His friendly relationship with Gardenia also seem to emphasize that, as she claims that "those who own Grass Pokémon cannot be so evil", which is also true to some point if one considers he is the "less" evil member of the trio.
  • A running gag of the series is that James is almost always the female when he and Jessie disguise themselves as a couple.
  • Jessie and James are more successful in the Unova region.
  • Jessie's and James' English names are derived from the notable outlaw Jesse James.
  • In one episode of the Anime (which is banned in the US) James is shown swearing at Kaiser.
  • In Pokémon XD: Gale Of Darkness, there is a trainer in Mt. Battle in zone 35 that has a Cacnea and Chimecho, who asks if you've seen anyone with the same Pokémon. This is an obvious nod to James, when he had those Pokémon in the Hoenn region.
  • Sometimes, Meowth calls him "Jimmy", a sort of nickname for people named James. He normally calls him that when he is confused about something that James knows or has said.
