Re: Ash's Age
If anything, Ash is most certainly not ten anymore. In the Pichu Brother short, Ash comments on how it's the anniversary of the day he met Pikachu. That means one year passed (back when he was in Jhoto).
The way I see it,
Full region journey = 1 year
Orange Island = half a year (it was small) - same goes for the revisits.
But yeah, I am going to stick with his minimum age right now being 11. xDDD
