I dont know why Ash is 10 years old. It's fanbase is more teenagers/adults than kids. They should make it a bit matured towards teenager Audience with suitable contents for kids. Attracting teenage audience will also attract kid audience because kids often find what teenagers find cool.


no, there's definitely more kids that watch the show

Yeah, it's hugely popular in Japan among elementary school kids and the like.

Would have to know some stuff about the Pokemon world first
- Is it Earth?
- If each episode is a day or more, how long for a stay per region?
- Are people Pokemon in the anime? Will Ash ever evolve into an adult?

Nope I disagree, Pokemon has a huge teen fan base compared to kid's fan base.

Considering who the anime is clearly written for, and that people who do marketing aren't idiots, the onus is on you to back your claim up with evidence.

He will have to become 16 sooner or later. His voice actor cannot maintain her voice forever.

Interesting bit of triva: The Pokemon anime changes staff for each new arc. Certianly explains alot and yet is still not an excuse since you'd expect them to follow a sort of character bible.

Gon is 12 in Hunter x Hunter and look at how awesome it's written. As long as the staff is the same as the BW one, he could be 20 and the anime would still be meh.

Also, I don't believe this rumor, and I can't believe the TC wants to be taken seriously without even posting the source. There is no discussion to be had here.


How i freaking loved that anime and i agree
