    That’s probably correct. Leon definitely can’t be very far into his 20s - we know from his League Card that he became Champion at age 10, and yet Hop “remembers watching him on the telly” and also mentions that Leon trained at the Master Dojo “when we were both kids.” Addendum: Hop also says at...

    Or Leon calling me "little Esserise" before the capture tutorial on Route 2... :bulbaFacepalm: Indeed, at this point I have accepted that it's a kids' game and have largely conditioned myself to just mentally gloss over those moments. (And the height differences I can kinda look past anyway...

    This reminds me of how I thought Bugsy was a girl until I pulled up his Bulbapedia article sometime in Gen 4 Edit: Funny enough... (I guess I'm gonna learn something new every time I randomly pull up the Bugsy page)

    I always figured Allister was the youngest, but I don’t think he’s far off from Bea’s age anyway. IIRC her concept artwork suggests she’s college age, and my guesstimation for Allister would be late high school. I don’t think I realized until now how, although a cool worldbuilding detail, Trial...

    Indeed, and off the top of my head, I remember Rowan saying he was 60. And Lusamine definitely said that she was over 40 in SM. Oh and of course, AZ is over 3000. :p

    That is correct, at least as far as Steven goes. At one point in ORAS, the DexNav's news app says that he is 25.

    My personal calculations for Mina and the Kanto protagonists in LGPE: According to Mina's LGPE concept art, she is between the ages of 13 and 15 in those games. We also know from a scene in Moon that Trial Captains must abdicate their positions when they turn 20, so Mina, being an active-duty...

    I assume that Drayden is somewhere in the ballpark of 85-90. He's supposed to be extraordinarily fit for his age, and in B2W2, he tells Iris that Poké Balls didn't exist when he was a child. But I've always gotten the impression that crafting Apricorn Balls is a tradition that dates back at...
