Default Haven't you noticed this?

MODS, IF THERE IS A THREAD LIKE THIS ALREADY, CLOSE THIS ONE!

haven't you ever noticed in the Pokémon anime...

that the creators make 10 year olds look like 16 year olds. I mean, their height goes WAY above and beyond the normal height for 10 year olds in real life (IM TALKING ABOUT YOU, JIMMY, ASH, MARINA, AND MAY!), their voice is too deep for 10 year olds (IM TALKING ABOUT YOU ASH AND JIMMY!), and they aren't even built like 10 year olds (i.e. their legs are too long as well as their arms, their feet and hands are too teenager like and their ams and legs are too bulky for 10 year olds and I'm MOST SPECIFICALLY talking about you Jimmy and Marina and May).

... oops, Hikari is too tall for 10 years old as well... but haven't you ever noticed that?

well, Jimmy and Marina MIGHT be around 14, but they look like 18 year olds (sorry. changed the age again ). Although it does say in the GSC intro that you are a 10 YEAR OLD KID who is setting off on a journey. Same with RBY, RSE, FRLG, and DP.

Ash is most likely 13 by now, but he might still be 11 if May is still 10.

They do look a little too mature for their age though.

Of course they're too mature, they go travelling around the world on their own at 10 years old!!!

In the real world they should be around 16 and that's how they look but I think the writers just wanted to make them younger so it would apeal to children of that age.

I think you're exactly right. That would make sense, because Pokemon is more popular for kids than adults. I guess they couldn't make Ash, May, Jimmy and Marina look younger without messing up how they look. For instance, making Ash shorter would make him look odd.

i know. they probably hope making them mature will attract older kids.
But it doesnt. it just makes the whole thing more screwy.
I think they should flash forward a few years, to make them older like perhaps 18, and change their looks a little, so it'll be more realistic. Oh btw i dont think changing the age to appeal to little kids makes a lot of sense, because even though they say they're ten they still look much older than the peole who are probably watching it.

I never liked the fact that the characters get their Pokemon at ten. Thirteen seems like an ideal age for me; my brother's ten, and I can't see him roaming around wild forests with a little blue crocodile clinging to his arm. I could see myself, probably, but...

Oh, and another thing... All of the girls were meant to be, like, in the range of ten years or so, but they have...developed chests; I could put it that way. o_O;

STILL! I just think they look to developed for their age, like the new character Hikari, yeah she's a cartoon, but what is that going to tell little girlswhen they see her outfit,"Hey, I should wear skirts that short too!"

Talking Re: haven't you noticed this?

Well, Hikari, May, and Marina may be in the 10-11 zone right now, and I REALLY don't want to get in FLE talk here, but girls mature early (range of ages 8-13). For boys, the beging of maturing starts (at earliest) at 9, and latest age is 14. These are the NORMAL maturing ranges. I won't get into any more details.
