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)

If we accept the theory and say that both Ash AND Silver are Giovanni's son, it'd make sense. I mean, where Silver would get his redhead if his father is a brunet?

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!

So you're going with the theory that Giovanni is Ash's father? I love it^^

I wasn't always a fan of the shipping (Delia and Giovanni) but after a reading a few fics about it it grew on me :). It would be kinda cool in a Darth Vadar/Luke Skywalker kind of way lol!

Everyone argues he can't be Ash's father because then Silver would be his brother. What? Giovanni couldn't have fathered two bastard kids? Are we thinking he's honorable for some strange reason? Also, Silver was game, he was seen in a cameo in the anime, but never as a full-blown character, so for all we know that "cameo" could have just been a doppelganger who looked like him. It would make sense, their personalities seem to be very alike except their traits show in different ways. In my Sailor Moon/Pokemon crossover (done with another writer in a collaboration on fanfiction.net) I plan to have Giovanni tell Ash that he's his father, playing the reformed card, just to get close to MewTwo who has a very LARGE role in the story.

Hey, it'd be funny if Silver was his brother! I mean, did you notice that Paul is essentially a bad quality rip-off of Silver? It'd be funny for Ash to discover he's the Reggie of his family...

But like it really makes sense that Ash and Giovanni could be related at the very least and father is most likely. I mean, they almost seem destined to meet.

Right^^. I wonder how that revelation would effect the story? If you're more into the Star Wars route, they would be enemies up until the final battle and Giovanni would die. If you're more like me and prefer a more family-friendly ending...you have a lot more options^^.

ah yes! :D! Well that does make things more interesting too. I'd imagine there would still be a bit of tension behind them too.

This was done splendidly, excellent work! And thier appearances are exactly how I envisioned when writing! I can't thank you enough for taking the time to draw this!

In fact, I think I know who I'm going to dedicate chapter 31 to :D

Also, I loved how you included Faith and the Badge necklace. Very creative!
