Headcanon that Nanu subtly fathers Guzma, and in turn the rest of Team Skull through him.
We know already that Nanu lives right outside Po Town, he may have given the excuse of cheap rent or whatever it was, but Acerola shoots that down instantly. Imagine Nanu casually visiting Po Town on a regular basis, just so happening to bump into Guzma in one of the alleyways, and both of them seeming totally uninterested and indifferent.
Nanu: You holding up? Guzma: Course. When ain’t I? Nanu: Don’t cause trouble, I’ll step in if I have to. Guzma: Tch… Nanu: *Conveniently drops just enough money for their rent on his way out*
We’ve seen that Nanu has a thing for caring for others, according to the amount of Meowth he has with food bowls around the place, and he does nothing to stop a kid heading into Po Town, but instead questions if they’re there to join them or go against them, knowing that most of the members are failed trial goers. It’s like he came over to meet a possible new member of the family. He notices and approaches you almost right away too, like he’s a house dad keeping an eye and an ear out on his roughhousing troublemakers while they’re outside playing Bad Guys.
Okay, so obviously the memory charm didn’t fully work on Mr. Kowalski. Look at those adorable pastries! I think I may know why.
He was bitten by a Murtlap, right? So, in OOtP, Hermione uses Murtlap essence to soothe Harry’s pain after Umbridge’s detentions. Murtlap is also used to increase someone’s resistance to jinxes.
I’m pretty sure that the venom in that bite may have helped Jacob retain at least part of his memories (look at how he touched his neck where the bite was when he saw Queenie). Since he was bitten a day before Obliviated, the venom would still be in his system.
I hope that whatever the reason, Jacob will keep him memories and come back for Part 2!

Wishing the ultimate of my ultimates a happy birthday! Even though times may be rough right now, I hope he still finds a reason to smile on his special day. May this year bring new blessings, more projects and activities to our lovely maknae rapper!
