Talking Re: haven't you noticed this?

Didn't you look at what I said? About maturing? People, characters are just maturing early, that's all. And they don't look 16! They look more 13 than 16.

^QUOTED FOR TRUTH^

Remember RBY versions? They developed the main character looking too old for his age (it says in the guide book he's 10, but he looks 13 or 14) and said he is 10. Satoshi Tajiri and Ken Sugimori probably thought making the next trainers (in our case, Jimmy and Marina) look more ten year old-like would be... odd to see since the RBY character looks more teen like.

Yeah, but if you look at Danny Phantom or Fairly Odd Parents and all those shows, the main characters are perfectly built for their ages!

it says Hikari is 10 and when we first started the season with May, she was 10 as well. I guess it's no surprise, but you would really only expect girls to develop longer arms and legs at the age of 8-10 rather than....chests..... ya know what I mean?

and for boys, it's a little obvious for them to mature between those ages, but thing is is that boys usually develop deep voices between 12-14 and Jimmy and Ash are mostly between 10-13 for Jimmy and 11-13 for Ash. I mean, Jimmy has a full on voice that sounds like Sonic the Hedgehogs! Again, people expect boys at the ages of 9-11 to get longer legs and arms than deeper voices.

enough said about that . I've also noticed that most main anime characters (i.e. Ash, Naruto [who I hate !], Zatch, the boy from Mar, and the like) all have a 5 year old personality at the beggining of the series and as the series develops, they begin to be more mature.

For instance, in the Kanto series, Ash was 10 and he wanted to get to the next gym as soon as possible and would give a nintendo wii to get to one. But now, he is able to wait for the next gym and/or contest/battle frontier, which means he's more mature.

now THAT'S enough said.

You are talking about them being the right height and all for their ages?(DP,FOP)Hello have you seen Timmy he is like 2 inches for a 10 year old.A lot of shows do that because really nobody cares about their age and height really.Also like someone already said it is just t.v. CARTOONS!

but anime shows are almost like real life.

Brock is perfect height for his age, which is like 20s to 30s, and yet, he's still taller than Ash, who is about 11-13 and is only about a foot shorter than Brock.

and remember the Chatot episode? The girl who had Chatot looked to be about 8-10 years old and was the same height as Ash AND May. That height didn't fit her at all in my opinion.

so you see? Sometimes, how Pokémon characters are created makes them look older than they really are.

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?
I got to see Hikari, but in looking at a picture of her, she is obviously drawn like a 10-year old girl. If you look at May, and she claims she's 10, why is she drawn like a 13 year old? Granted, puberty does vary, but I can't picture May getting features like that for her age. I think Misty was said to have been 12 and looked like she was drawn as a 12 year old. Ash was 10 in season 1, adn I think in the Sinnou region, shouldn't he be hitting 14? Now, it has to be 14 if they say it took him one year to journey through Kanto/Johto/Hoenn/Battle Frontier in Kanto/and now Sinnou. Course though, the real journey varied 2-3 years.

The new voice that did Ash, he sounded like a frog constantly! The voice that did May sounded terrible! My beloved Jenny and Joy, their voices stolen by horrible talent! I hope Ash doesn't sound like he's on the ritalin when he wins a battle!

Here's a picture of Hikari from TV Tokyo that does the Pokemon series in Japan:


From my observation, looks 10 to me.

I am not too sure about hikari being too developed.......but may definiteley was. Though misty, brock and tracey were correct IMO.

Hikari is developed like a regular 10 year old. I just said she herself and her legs are too tall in height for one

When May said she was 10, I said, "WTF?!? 10 YEARS OLD?!? SHE'S TOO TALL FOR A 10 YEAR OLD AND SHE DOESN'T EVEN LOOK LIKE ONE!". Misty I thought was around Tracey's age which is like, I dunno, let's say 17?

Brock is like 20 or 30 and he's perfect.

Ash is fine, he's meant to be like 13-14 right now. But still, it's just a cartoon, don't take it too seriously.

^ AGAIN, QUOTED FOR TRUTH^

I just said around 11-14 because the second pokemon short movie was Ash's birthday. I don't know if he has aged since then, so I said 11-14.

If Ash is 13 or 14, then he's fine.
