It Must Be Love...

A common topic among Team Rocket fans is, just what is the nature of the relationship between Jesse & James?

A lot of fans wonder about Jesse & James... Are they brother and sister? Are they married? Are they just friends? One thing we do know is that they are not brother and sister, as both are from completely different backgrounds as explained in several episodes. We do not think they're married (otherwise I'm sure we would have heard about it in the show). So that just leaves that final question: Are they just friends?

Okay, so James likes to cross dress a little bit, but from what we can gather, he most definitely likes girls so that's not really a factor (see 'Ghost of Maiden's Peak' if you want proof!), so what about all those cute little moments between he and Jess? There's just gotta' be more to it!

Well, in case you haven't heard about it, there is a group of Team Rocket fans known as 'The RocketShippers'. These are the fans who believe that Jesse and James are indeed in love, and should be together. They're just waiting for it to materialise on the TV show. As 'unofficial RocketShippers', we here at Salon Roquet support the Jesse and James lurve-cause!
