Okay, Real Talk. What's Going On With Ash Ketchum's Age?

Kotaku - "Now that we've seen what Ash will look like in the newest season of the Pokemon anime, once again discussion of one of the show's greatest mystery flares up: just how old is Ash Ketchum supposed to be, and why does he almost never seem to age?" (Culture, Pokemon)

There are plenty of cartoon characters and even anime character that don't age.

What they should've done is stuck with Red(not Ash) until the end of gen one and then introduce a new protagonist with each new generation.

Oh my God..seriously who cares. Bart SImpson has been 10 years old twice as long as Ashhas. WTF even atches pokemon anymore..the games are great but the show lost it's appeal when we were 13

I wonder how TheJWittz feels about being featured by Kotaku.

I watch all of his videos. He remind me a lot of myself because he loves what he does. Being feature on other sites and get the attention of more viewer who never knew he's exist that might into this kind of stuff is a plus for JWittz.

Hold on a second, you mean to tell me the timeline in a children's cartoon isn't overly coherent and the main character doesn't seem to age? Stop the pressed.

I don't have a problem with it....what I do have a problem with is the new designs. The eyes seem different and even people like Nurse Joy and Officer Jenny have had a makeover. I thought it was just for that region but they had a flashback episode when Ash first met Charmander and they had the same designs. Not to mention they've changed voice actors and now half of them like Meowth, James and Ash sound horrid.

Plus I hate his new companions, one of them is a gym leader of the first gym Ash went to in the region and the other is a gym leader I think (or she was in the games). It's basically trying to recreate Misty and Brock....why not use them again.

Pokémon was good in 1997/1998 to about 1999/2000

heres my theory everything thats happened in the anime has taken place in 1 year,hence why ash hant aged, hes only been gone for 1 year.
Count  +   367d ago
That's a lot to fit in one year.

I just think.. it's a cartoon! It doesn't have to make sense.
ChipChipperson  +   367d ago
My theory is that he's actually eating most of the Pokemon he catches because they have medicinal properties... but, Ash does thinks they're tasty.

Just like the kids in South Park are still in elementary school.

Maybe they DID age. The episode "I should have never gone Zip lining" when there was a live action bit with them as adults summed it up well, lol. Just kidding :p

Just like the Pokemon cards who cares? ;)
zeal0us  +   367d ago
Do they actually still make pokemon cards? I haven't seen a pokemon card commercial for like two years now.
gigoran  +   367d ago
Wait... Is this another story from that horseface Patricia?
who cares they ruined the show when they changed everything about it and took out the original voice actors plus other things.

He just has a bath in the fountain of youth with Will Smith, Tom Cruise and Denzel Washington.
