I've been thinking about it for the past five minutes, and I don't think I've ever heard them call Ash and his friends "Ash" or "Misty" or "Iris". It's always been 'twerp' or 'the tall twerp' or some variation or other name. When I was little I read one of the novelizations of one of the original episodes, and Jessie was like "You two are just like that sappy Ash." It bugged me to NO END that she said his name because it would sound weird. So have they ever called Ash and friends by their actual names? And if yes, what episode(s)?

This is actually a very interesting question.

Apparently, they only call Ash and co. by their names if either Team Rocket are in disguise, or Team Rocket are forced to work with them. Basically any other time, they are considered twerps.

I can supply a list if you want later, I have to go to school now.

Hope I helped. :)
