Default How is Ash still 10?

This is a question I still wonder about, even if I don't watch the anime anymore. I have personally thought that perhaps Ash's age reverts to 10 at the beginning of each region. Or perhaps time passes slower in the Pokemon world. Or maybe he is in a comma. What is your theory?

Well if anything, you could blame Dialga.

I guess in reality it is to reflect the age of the trainers in game, but even that seems farfetched.

Don't you mean, Farfetch'd? *Awesome face* Anyways, the reason why Ash is still 10 is because...because...because...um...

TIME PARADOX.

It's anime. xD Kids can relate to Ash though. If he was a pubescent 15 year old it'd be awkward and not relatable. Especially if he was 20. THAT'S NOT RELATABLE TO KIDS AT ALL.

There are many animes that have teenagers instead if 10 year olds.

Yeah it would be odd if a 20 year person in kid's anime.

Maybe it is because he has time traveled to often, he has a magical bubble that protects him from time. He could probably turn to dust if he left the bubble.

JK, but the time paradox theory is the most ammusing... maybe he divided by zero?

Yeah it probably is to make it relatable to the target audience... that is just the boring reason

Pokemon, however, is aimed at the young ones. :3

Ash feeds on the youth of young maidens. The reason he always gets a new one is because the old one has been completely drained

So is any program that airs on Primetime on Cartoon Network.
All Ben 10s post-original series included, and at that point Ben is 15.
Teen Titans (when it ran) and Young Justice also count.

Actually that kinda makes sense... and Brock has dissappeared as well... perhaps he found out... and/or was drained...

I think every episode counts as a day.
Soooooo... Ash should be around 12 years old.

I read it in the Pokémon wiki.

Erm, I doubt that he is still 10. Thats a fact that was most likely made by people who dislike Pokemon. I even saw an episode where Ash celebrated 1 year of when him and Pikachu met. That was back in Kanto. So, he really isn't ten years old anymore. He is most likely 12 or 13.

Ash is 23 or 24 he just has a rare disease that makes him appear as a child, like that poor kid Webster (reference from way beyond most of your times).
