Why does the article say that he is 10? He was 10 at the beginning of the show, and during the first season I remember him celebrating being a trainer for one year and obviously several years have passed in the series since. GreenDragonRanger (talk) 21:40, April 19, 2013 (UTC)
You guys should just leave Ash's age at 10. It was confirmed that he's still 10 years old in BW001 in the english dub and japanese version. And since Best Wishes is not a reboot and a continuation from the other series, that would mean Ash was 10 in Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, and Sinnoh. I know that it was said in the english version one time that Ash has said stuff like "a lot has happened over the years", but that was a dub line only, and not in the original japanese version, meaning that statement is false. Also, it is common for fictional characters not to age, regardless on how much time has past.
Charlie Brown remains 8 years old in all Peanuts specials and throughout the Peanuts comic strip.
In the PBS show Arthur, Arthur is still 8 years old and in the third grade even though there have been multiple episodes that take place during the course of winter (the last season of each year).
On bulbapedia on episode XY 02
To anyone as a user, 'It's states on some sites ash is indeed older right? well if so i hope to be right by myself if thats okay to anyone..
Um on another note i have a small question to hope someone could maybe answer on my talk page if this is okay it stated on youtube & on Bulbapedia that the froakie in the episode XY02 is helping ash battle mega grachamp right?
So here is my question i am worried on:
Is the Froakie stated there only helping ash out or is this pokemon going to be Ash's new pokemon for X & Y series?
What new Pokemon in Kalos will he get? He already got Froakie and Fletchling, but I'd like to see him get Litleo, Skiddo/Chespin, and an Eevee which later evolves into Sylveon. I'd also like to see Fletchling evolve early in the series.
