I would think they are endangered pokemon and the poke labs take them in to breed them.
Chespin is the best thing, since sliced bread. LOL

How is it that Twins who look about 5 can have pokemon, but Ash was 10 when he got Pikachu?

I'm sure it's like gifts. Someone gave them Pokémon by family members at a young age.

Like how some people got an NES as young as 2 or 3 when some people didn't see a system until they were like 5 or 7.

Because the 10-years-old rule hasn;t been acknowledged by the games in years, if at all?

Because they're supposed to be somewhat special


But that makes no sense in the context of the game world, now does it?

Pretty sure they're extremely rare, possibly endangered, in the context of the games.

Because GameFreak.

They want you to have a special bond with it. Not "oh this one I just caught has a better nature." *Boxes original.*

Quit putting Pokemon under a microscope.
In the age of information, ignorance is a choice.

There's your explanation. Their world runs on the game mechanics.

Agree. It's a pain in the ass getting my Charmander eggs every new gen.

If Mudkip's evolutions, Osharott as a whole, and Chespin and Fennekin weren't ugly, maybe I wouldn't box them up forever!
