Well if we were counting he would be around 14/15/16.
But since it's a cartoon show and at the beggining of the Unova region they say his age, he never grows.

Since he turned 10 in 98', By The Real World, He'd be 20, becuase his Birthday was when the first episode came up in America, Or whatever. He's be 20-21. But, he's 10. Therefore, all the adventures that he took through Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, and now Unova haven't even been a year yet, becuase think that the show comes on every week for 30 Minutes, out of the 1000's of Episodes, =30,000 Minutes = 20.83 days So, That would describe some of it, But thats just MY Logic.

Ash isn't 11 in canon, because he was specifically stated to be 10 at the start of his Unovian journey.

Ash is similar to many cartoon characters in that he never ages. Notice how Bart Simpson is still 10, despite there being many Christmas episodes? Bad example, but the point still stands.

Ash is 10 and forever will be. Anyone who says otherwise is just in denial that they will 'grow out' of their beloved anime character. :p

As much as it will be a thrilling thought for Ash to age so that there is some semblance of progress we see in him, I think it's probably for the best that he stays at 10, because if the purpose of the character is to journey through the different places and be entertaining to children at the same time, that's the best way to go. He also tends to make repeated mistakes, which some fans over at Bulbagarden complained, so if he's still at 10, this would be justified a bit.

By the way, at the age of 10, his understanding of romance is limited, like many children like me when I was 10. Besides, Takeshi Shudo (late writer of the anime) even said that Pokemon and romance doesn't blend well, so making Ash a romantic fella may not be the best idea to do in the anime. Thus, another reason he's best stayed at 10.

Thanks for reading.

Couldn't agree more with this. I think another point could very well be that a lot of other anime's, the main characters have grown up (I'm looking at you naruto!) And people expect the same to happen to pokemon. Still, there's no pleasing everyone.

It's pretty obvious people, in the Pokémon World, you age normally until you hit 10 years old. At that point no matter how old you are chronologically they'll just call you 10 anyway. Ash is 10. Brock is 10. Professor Oak is 10. Do they ever say otherwise? I didn't think so. At least I'm pretty sure they don't.

This is a kids show. Everyone needs to understand that. They cater to a young audience so of course they're not gonna have Ash at like age..20. Everyone should stop complaining about it, seriously.

Love when people complain about ash's age. It a childrens cartoon. Heck he could go 2 1000 regions and still be 10, though thats......highly unlikely.

I think because if Ash becomes older or something, it will affect the mangas or the anime somehow(^^)

Well the whole goal of the show is, and I quote:

Travel around all the regions, collect all of the gym badges, never age
And as they say:
IT SH1TS MONEY!

I will excuse your French >_>. anyway, it'd be good to bring May back as travelling partner because a) gives adv.shippers a field day, b) that has to show ageing, doesn't it? I mean, if they've said about Anniversarys, en they would hve to referv to how long it's been since they travelled together. Oh and the coma idea.... Just doesn't work for me.
