As her name implies, Delia is the mother of the Pokemon anime's main character, Ash Ketchum. Delia isn't seen in many episodes other than those in which Ash comes back home to Pallet Town after he's completed one of his journey's through a region. Often times, Delia can seem a little overprotective of Ash and embarrasses him from time to time, but nonetheless she's always supportive of Ash's goals and aspirations and does what she can to help. In recent appearances, Delia seems disappointed when Ash leaves for another adventure after being home only for a day or two, but she remembers that his quest to become a Pokemon Master takes him all over the Pokemon world and that he is unable to rest at home for that long which is something Delia has come to terms with and accepted as a fact. Delia was in just two Pokemon movies as she played a pivotal role in Pokemon the Movie 3: Spell of the Unown. She made more of a cameo appearance in Pokemon the Movie 2000: The Power of One in which she, Prof. Oak, and Prof. Ivy went to look for Ash and co. when the balance of power between Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres was disturbed and Ash and his friends were right in the middle of the conflict.
