Young Delia and Giovanni by Ankhesenamen Young Delia and Giovanni by Ankhesenamen
I've been meaning to draw this for a while now. This was inspired from ~lordrogersmith6485's Fan fic 'The Lost Chronicles of Giovanni' ([link]) and its sequel 'Blessed Defiance' ([link]) which looks at the lives of Giovanni and Delia as young trainers on their own Pokémon Journeys together.

Points to note:

*I apologise for the super wonky lines! I'm still getting used to drawing cartoon style. Though I'm having a blast with it! I think I'm getting into the Pokémon style too :D!

* A couple of random trainers from the anime had to give up their clothes for this couple (as a reference!). I'm hopeless at coming up with clothing concoctions on my own.

*You will notice that the colours of Giovanni's outfit are all a play on the colours that appear in his orange wonder he wears later on in life.

*I wanted to give Giovanni Ash's messy hair-style.

*The little Pichu's name is Faith and belongs to ~lordrogersmith6485

*Delia's necklace appears as an exact replica of the Earth badge for some reason...

I actually support that Sakaki Giovanni is in fact both Red AND Silver's father. It makes sense. Ten years before Red was born he was just a gym leader who was heir to powerful organization. Just after his first son is born his father dies and leaves him the "business", something he doesn't want to get the ones he loves involved in. Then shortly after and probably intoxicated his executive (Arianna right?) catches him on the rebound and they have a short fling, resulting in Silver. He becomes caught in a cycle of greed and corruption, seeks power and turns his back on those that matters for fear of causing them pain like he suffered as a child. Works pretty well if you ask me. Plus Red and Silver are perfect opposites and that kind of thing can be common with fraternal brothers (trust me ugh)
Oh yeah? That's a pretty neat theory. :)

awesome!but what i dont get is if they both have brown hair how did ash come out with black O_o
I lay claim that its the same colour as Giovanni's mother's hair lol! That was the excuse I used in the fic. Her black hair skipped a generation and so Ash inherited it XD!
