Most of them look like they're at least 13-15. Especially the females.

The "10 years old" thing is pretty much just the anime. None of the main characters, except for Red (in the manual, I believe) have ever had their age confirmed. Note that the game characters are different from their anime and manga counterparts.

Yeah, they certainly don't look like kids. They look more like teens, but Hilda especially looks like she can pass for 17 or 18.

The B/W characters were stated to be older than the past characters, but that's about all we know regarding their age. Presumably, it was to help facilitate the more mature story behind the games.

So Red's the youngest and continues to be, by far, the most badass.

Red hasn't confronted gods of time, space, and antimatter.

He also hasn't had any help from anyone, but managed to singlehandedly dismantle an organized crime syndicate, and you know... kick a ghost's ass.

Yeah, he sure kicked the ass of the restless spirit of the Pokemon slaughtered trying to defend her child, who only returned because her killers were tormenting an old man.

Or maybe they didn't want to confront him.
