I don't know if Pokemon age. Perhaps the Pokemon levels are technically their age?

In the pokemon adventures manga, Mr. Fuji's doduo died because it was old. Also theres the pokemon tower. I would assume some die to natural causes, id doubt that they all died due to poke-murder :p

I seem to recall people referencing pokemon dying of old age in the games (lavender tower et al), but I don't think we've ever seen one look particularly older than another of the same species, although that;s more a limitation of the games than anything else.

Cemeteries exist in the game, and in the 1st season some Surfer dude had a Pikachu for a long time and showed signs of aging so yes.

there was that story in platinum of a guy murdering pokemon with a new sword, and mr. Fuji's dodou died. So we know pokemon die, which means some had be of old age.
