    1. Alexis Nuñez

      I would of thought it was Giovanni or Red

    2. Tina Tremblay

      Austin make your own channel

    3. Tina Tremblay

      Can you stop making videos Austin every time I go to a video I actually want to know you just makes me want to stop the video

    4. the knee thief

      I knew highschool bio would come back to haunt me Also I'd like to see the punnette for my eyes because they're blue with a green inner ring

    5. Ava M Tippery

      honestly, I think everyone at one point or another though they would remember the means to which they arrived at a math problem and then just forgot. Everyone does that. Especially me.

    6. Pixie Ciaran

      you should figure out how many years actually occur in the series, also silver has grey hair. likely cuz of age

    7. PGATProductions

      am i the only one that calls austin the science guy?

    8. Yasuda9000

      Not surprised.

    9. Rachel T

      plot twist: it doesn't matter because we all know kukui is ash's real father figure anyway

    10. Naseem Ahmed

      I hope Red is not Giovanni's child....

    11. SirNippleMoustache

      Didn't the musical acknowledge that Ash's mom was in team rocket and did date Giovanni, but that it did not work out?

    12. A Kale

      It's actually ging freecs. They had 2 children. But Delia is from the other side of the dark continent. They each kept one child. But ging didn't want to raise it so he gave gon to his imouto mito.

    13. A Kale

      What's wrong with your voice matpat? It sounds much less whiny. We don't like it.

    14. Raka Pratama

      so that's why Giovanni gave ash a gym badge after defeating him because he finally acknowledge ash, and why else a mobster gave you a badge?

    15. Artic Jay (Jane Clark)

      Makes sense... annoyingly

    16. Fredric soa

      Silver has grey hair which could be because of him Bring a little older, besides he is like Ash in many ways cares about Pokémon have his Pokemon companion outside his Pokeball like Ash has Pikachu.

    17. paulreg

      Jessie: Look boss we caught that twerp's pikachu and all we had to do was seriously hurt him to get it...... boss you ok? you look angry? um... James: looking concerned Meowth: already long gone

    18. Mourad Ben Algia

      I think it makes sense that giovani is ash's dad cuz in lots of cartoons and animes we find the dad is one of the antagonists like in ok k.o the dad is prof. Venemous.

    19. AgarWorstPlayer

      Giovanni: Ash, I'm your dad. I sent team rocket to you so uncle James and Jessie can watch over you Ash: what is a dad? oh is that a new pokemon! Pikachu, Clangorous Soulblaze then jump and do sky attack and charge for bolt strike. We need to take this legendary pokemon at all cost

    20. Shiny Huner Alana

      Plot twist Kukui is Ash's Father

    21. BBVenom

      In one video you talk about how the bottom part of tbe screen attracts less attention than the upper part and here you put patreons on the lower part so tiny that unless your eye randomly wonders there you won't even notice it. I see what you did there O.O

    22. Will 93

      @12:00 Silver's hair looks pretty damn grey to me... he could have had any of a number of hair colors when he was younger. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    23. Keagan Hale

      Here what I think:silver and ash,s mom were married but couldn’t,t have a child so they adopted ash from a random orphanage

    24. SpaztasticSheep

      But isn't Silver's hair just... grey?

    25. TheAdvertisement

      Now I want to see Giovanni try and corrupt ash to join Team Rocket but also revealing that he's the father. Meanwhile Jesse and James are in the background like _"WHAT!?"_

    26. TheAdvertisement

      This is the most dramatic and nerve-wracking episode ever made on this channel.

    27. Tom Saunderson

      It's Giovanni

    28. Frank Flores

      He's his own father!

    29. Kyebur “KyeburOnTheInternet”

      when the intro started, i really thought i managed to turn the video onto 0.75 speed somehow.

    30. Nick Anderson

      In my head-canon, Giovanni was cheating on his woman with Ash's mom while she was in her 20's. She got pregnant and he didn't want anyone to find out about her, especially since it could put her in danger, so he gave her enough money to buy a house in a small town and doesn't contact her much, if at all anymore.

    31. Jacky Boy

      I don't know why but Brock popped into my mind around the end ;-;

    32. K Cooper

      What if it's just Red 🤯🤯

    33. dggdvg0

      I just wanted to point out ash was 10 years, 10 months, and 10 days old when he started his journey. So his whole journey has been in less than 2 months

    34. Dr crazeman

      I thought ash's dad was Mr.mime

    35. The Badasies

      But in EP 1! yes 1! Garry says to ash thats UNCLE GARRY to you soooooooo......... thats someting

    36. Karan

      Team rocket leader was my potential candidate

    37. PAUL LAMPANO

      Giovanni because of the shadow

    38. Mirla Ramirez

      Ash's father was a bag guy and was the leader of team rocket he attacked his son

    39. Tom Index2

      plot twist: giovanni already pays child support and sends team rocket to watch over ash.

    40. Richard Harrington

      Yeah pretty funny how Ash keeps being the only one who thwarts all of team Rocket's plans, and yet the organization never does anything direct to get him out of the way

    41. Clark Kent

      We are all made of jeans!

    42. Ryan Moore

      Wait a minute...didn't JWittz make basically this same video, with the exact same candidates, like 6 years ago? 😶

    43. CheesecakeLasagna

      I wish "The Science" also have official Closed Captions. I'm watching this while the roof of our house drowns us with heavy pitter-patter because typhoon.

    44. Thomas Kwan

      I thought that Giovanni was the father since i was a kid in the 90s

    45. Hound+

      I like how he said that Giovanni would have to have a child with a woman with a light hair color to spit out Silver when we literally know who Silver's mother is. It's that Rocket Executive, Ariana.

    46. Zachary Quance

      Liked the intro

      1. Zachary Quance

        Nvm he ruined it

    47. ruben canas

      Before I see it my guess professor Oak. Everyone knows ashs mom loves professor Oaks wood

    48. LOLOL veryfun258

      9:15 that's me when am up against my friends who has no idea how to play the game

    49. BloodyLittleVampire

      I always thought Ash's father died...

    50. Clint Ivan Orsolino

      Plot twist: Leon is Ash's Father😂😂😂

    51. balagel

      He's been looking for Milky an Cicigs.

    52. Josh Hartley

      The Mr. Mime shadow though.

    53. Tree Growth

      After watching Pokemon Origins and the scene where Ash fights Giovanni, he says it reminds him of the younger version of himself. I CANNOT agree more.

    54. BesperVesper :0

      I always thought Giovanni was his dad. Seems weirdly obvious?

    55. minecraftpike

      Is it sad that I know what person is who by litterally their shadows

    56. 1289dude

      So, where's the new news? This has been a theory for a long time. But, I sat through and watched it, just because.

    57. A Knight That Is Hollow

      Plot twist: Ash’s dad is Mr. Mime and his dad died and was reincarnated as the Mr. Mime.

    58. the holy bonker doggo

      Midoriya: my father went to go buy milk and never came Ash: SAME

    59. Jadis Cardelli (LoveGazer)

      Wait thinking about it silver(not the old one) looks really similar to Ash‘s mom and if the other phenotype for her eye was blue is it possible that he could also be her son?!

    60. Jadis Cardelli (LoveGazer)

      When you’ve been watching the anime since you were like six have had this theory since then have a brother with olive skin blackish brown hair and brown eyes who’s literally named “Giovanni” and is on probation: 😳😳😬😬😰😰

    61. Haunted Haunter

      For a second at 15:25 I thought you were about to say Brock

    62. GlamMuffin✔️

      he has a theory for everything I respect that

    63. Wizard ish

      Austin: Explain genetics terms. Me, having just taken a class in genetics: Hello fellow human.

    64. CCProdigy

      i kinda always had a feeling about giovanni being ashs dad

    65. Mewing Mew MEW

      Dose that mean silver is ashes brother

    66. Oscar Knight

      I knew it!!!!!!

    67. Sarah Friedman

      Austin: punnet squares! Me: *flashbacks to 7th grade science class*

    68. soulassassin0g

      Who is Ash's father? Is it Chef? Is it officer Barbrady? Or is it the 1991 Denver Broncos?

    69. Lucy Icy

      Plot twist: Ash's mom colored her hair brown when she was young (Just joke, not real)

    70. Tazza Mania

      Personally I think silver has greying hair and that he should still be considered the father. We don’t know how he looked when he was younger, and as stated before he is the only one who seems to share a connection with ash which would suggest a parent

    71. Jungle Bat

      Seeing the Mr. Mime silhouette fake-out had me laughing so hard 🤣

    72. The void physics

      Being an ICSE 10th student this video was really helpful for me to understand Genetics.....I have never thought of working out with the Punnett squares of Ash Ketchum over the Hamster!!!! 😅😅😅....You are a great teacher Mr. Austin.....!! Thank you...

    73. Rugged Alphonse

      Oh god this is gonna be long... From what we know in other pkmn media (drama cds, Takeshi Shudo novels, etc.) Giovanni's mother was the TR boss before him, so he inherited it. According to the novels, Delia would've been a model & pkmn trainer if it weren't for her own father leaving his in-house restaurant business to go on a journey... Delia stays home to help out and inherits the restaurant full-time after her mother dies. She meets a guy, marries him quickly, has Ash at 18-19, the guy leaves on a journey and never comes back. After getting a computer, Delia explains to Ash that he won't find his dad or grandpa on any top 1000 trainer lists... because she knew Ash would've been curious enough to search the internet. While fans think Prof Oak is the dad, he would've been 40-ish at the time Ash was born. Prof Oak's family is also the descendants of the only trainer from Pallet that made it to the top 1000 trainer list. The trainer became the first mayor of Pallet. Oak's brother is currently the mayor of Pallet, and it explains Gary's attitude is because he's pressured to be a good trainer due to his lineage. It would've been quite the scandal for Oak to sire Ash even if you don't count that he's a famous professor, and would've been difficult to keep a secret like mentioned in the vid. In the 3rd movie it's revealed that Delia was a student of Oak's, thus leading to Oak being one of the only reliable adults in her youth if you keep the novels in mind. IMO, Giovanni is most likely the candidate. My headcanon: Giovanni tries living a normal life outside his mother's organization by using a fake name, meets Delia, marries her quickly... but later changes his mind and goes back to Viridian City to become the boss of TR. He says he's going on a journey, and voila! Delia has to assume that he's failing as a trainer since the fake name is never heard of again. As far as Giovanni knowing Ash is his son... it'd be hard to say. Ash and Delia don't have a last name in the Japanese version, but it may depend on if Ketchum is Delia's maiden name she took back or her husband's. If it's the latter, Giovanni would have bells going off in his head after hearing about a boy from Pallet Town named Ash Ketchum... the same fake last name he used there. But the novels became more of Shudo's headcanon as the anime/game franchise went on longer, leading to contradictions. Sooo, y'know... Just let Delia have a good time on tinder plz. She deserves it!

    74. BreadyFedy

      Are we ignoring that Silver’s hair is the same color as Oak’s? It may have been a different color when he was younger, that was a sloppy elimination

    75. Animator Poko

      Thought it was Brock lmfao 😹

    76. Dana Galloway

      Hey Austin, loved this THE SCIENCE vid, I wondered if you had considered looking at the science within world of warcraft's shadowlands expansion. I'd be really interested to see an explanation on the power required to literally cause the sky to shatter and shadowlands to collide with azeroth after sylvanas broke the helm of domination

    77. Pickle “Roblox Sk8er Pickle”

      Is it possible to make actual latex animals like in the game “Changed”?

    78. Liam Ltc

      Help me find my dad plz

    79. CAT

      thanks for doing the intro, my ocd was screaming

    80. Matthew Laverde

      0/10 there was no click at the beginning lol Edit: Never mind, 11/10

    81. Luna Oak

      But gio is silvers dad

    82. Allen Cunningham - EKS

      How about who Deku's dad could be next? Or is Deku related to Nana? The manga is in its final arc supposedly so it seems like the final chance to do a theory on My Hero.

    83. TheNeonHotDog

      For The Science, you should do a video on Gorilla Tag and how hard you have to push to launch yourself into the air.

    84. Ilie Alexandru

      Ash and Giovanni look nothing alike

    85. Ilie Alexandru

      For exemple is Giovanni is ash dather why does he always send to inturupt his gym batells or indigo league ones does he hate him

    86. Ilie Alexandru

      Why are you you making this we know ash father is a failed pokemon trainer or at least that what the pocket monsters book or manga whatever says to us

    87. KFM Farhan

      Me: *Mime* is *Ash's* f....... Pokefans: *NO!!!!* Me: Well he does have dark eyes, is stupid, has *GOOD* relationship with *Delia* ,... Pokefans: *NO!!!!!*

    88. FIRSTNAME LASTNAME

      giovanni..

    89. human

      ashs father is brock

    90. 64man100

      We may never know who his birth father is, but can we all agree that Professor Kukui was the father he deserved?

    91. Aaron Clements

      Giovanni is Silver's dad. Edit: lol he just said that

    92. poketuber

      THAT MEANS THAT ASH HAS A BROTHER SILVER IF GIOVANNI IS ACTUALLY THE FATHER

    93. World Of Stories

      Honestly, Imagine a Biology teacher coming into class and having you learn about genomes and punnett squares so that you can help him find out who Ash's father is. Teacher: "Okay students today we are gonna find out who Ash's father is." Half the Students: "Who Is Ash?" The Pokémon Players and Game Theorists: "Your on!"

    94. THE LEGENDARY SUPER SAIYAN

      *Plot Twist* : Ash's mom is a hermaphrodite and got herself pregnant with Ash

    95. Tobias Pause

      isnt silver probably just old too? Also, i did thought about Giovanni, but than you excluded him just to include him later? Thats cheap. Also with that, pretty much anyone could be Asches Father. And honestly Bruno is an very good pick. Isnt it even kind of implied that Ash watches his Father in the pkmn league in the first Episode? Bruno would make perfect sense here. And why is beeing ocupied in the League more problematic than beeing occupied as a Crimeboss? For me, Brunos likelyhood stands over Giovannis. Ether that, or an Ditto did the Thing.

    96. yes dog

      my mum said that youtube was killing my brain so she turned off the internet. once that happened, my science grades went into the dirt. huh. funny how that works.

    97. azmuth

      this video is a great revision for my biology exam tommorow. if i get everything he's saying then i'll pass for sure

    98. Mallory Scott

      When considering who his dad was, I also assumed Giovani was a good candidate. Like, he's still alive, yet he's a secret. I mean, out of all the characters that we know.

    99. Chunky kong

      You're my source when I have a science project about sexual reproduction
