Was there really a point of Hilda, Hilbert, Cheren, and Bianca being older than 10? Do they mention it at all during the game?

Was there really a point in setting an arbitrary age such as ten/eleven as the age that people start their journey in Pokemon?

To be honest not a single one of the playable characters in the series looks like a ten year old to me. They all look at least 13 and up.

Uh, we're still a good decade away from knowning anything about the seventh generation, much less whether they increase the player character ages into legal drinking-age range (this generation, the fifth generation, was the first time in the main series since Colosseum where player characters aren't preteen--the fifth generation player characters are roughly 16, while Colosseum's Wes is about 17)...
I am a die hard Pokemon fan to the most, including the traditional hate of Yu-Gi-Oh.

Preschool kids can have pokemon, they just can't enter professional contests, like gym challenges. The Preschool is there to teach them how to train their pokemon. Also, sometimes they can have rental pokemon the preschool owns as aids so that they can learn from hands on experience. Not sure why they chose 10 as the inital age of trainer eligability though.
