How long do Pokemon live?

I began to wonder about this since I don't think I've ever seen an "old" version of any Pokemon before in contrast to "young" ones who hatched from eggs recently.

I'm also fairly certain that most if not all legendary Pokemon are immortal to a degree.

They live long enough for you to train them.

How old is Ash currently? 11, 10, 12? Take that into account.
I used to be condescending, now I'm just downright offensive. That means I say mean s*** to you.

They live as long as you let them, before they get rabies and go the way of Old Yeller.

Most Pokemon out live their trainers, according to several npcs.

I remember that guy Tracy in the anime owned a Scyther that was described as being older in age... I think a Pokemon's lifespan depends on the species much like animals. Some Pokedex entries mention their lifespan, and I think it's common knowledge that most legendary Pokemon can live for very long periods of time.
