Did you notice the meaning of Ash rotating his cap backwards? It marks his will of inverting the current Universe. Have you ever wondered why Ash is wearing cut-up gloves? The same reason why Ikari Gendo does – he has Stigmata on his palms, the marks of suffering for another. However, Ash’s gloves have their fingers cut off, thus explicitely pointing out the imperfection, or even falsehood, of his Stigmata. He bears the Sign of God, yet it is a false sign… He is the unity of Christ and Satan… He struggles towards Inversion, Chaos and Destruction… He is the Anti-Christ. The final antagonist of God.
And his journey is nothing more and nothing less than the Prelude to Apocalypse.How exactly does Team Rocket attempt to stop Ash? They have undergone the Purification ritual, dressed in white clothes (symbol of purity), soothed their hair with yelei (the substance used to mark Kings for ruling). They have chanted the recitation (commonly known as “motto”), and formed the Triangle. They have drawn the sacred circle, and turned it into a rip in the space-time continuum, a black hole, a door out of this world. A grave, effectively. This ritual of banishment, designated to send Ash to his plane of residence (underground), definitely shows Team Rocket as practicioning Cabbalists. Or rather, as powers whose actions are manifested in the material plane as cabbalistic rituals.
