It's just the animation style - everyone seems to have gotten taller and slimmer

BW threw us this same loop: Ash looks a bit older! Maybe he's 11 this ti-"I'm 10 years old!"- oh ok then.

XY might do the same damn thing.

My guess is that he won't age until the end of the Pokemon anime. After that, then maybe they'll finally have a new protagonist? I don't know, but I doubt it. It'd be really awesome if Ash was a teenager though!

I don't know but I always enjoyed young Ash and I don't want them to make him look older because that will ruin Ash for me. It's fine if they made him more mature etc.. but please don't change his appearance. I've always preferred his art style in BW.

Gee, only Jenny looks the best out of everyone. I've grown sick of Nurse Joy since the Hoenn days and we all know Giovanni won't be shown for gaps at a time so it probably won't matter.

A far as Ash goes, it would be weird if he was suddenly got older than he was before after all this time. They should have never mentioned his age in BW and then we wouldn't be having these discussions.

Ash does look slimmer and taller than in the BW series, but it could be due to the new style. Won't be surprised if he's still the same age.

I'm really fine either way. Just don't go back and forth on his age. TheJWittz on YouTube just made a video about this a few years ago. Ash is supposed to be 26! (10 years + 16 years of the anime)

But the anime has only ever mentioned him being 10, then 11 (in the DP saga), then back to 10 in BW… -_-

I don't really care because to me him, Misty, Iris, Dawn and May all looked 15 or 16 to me while Max looked 10 (Brock, Tracey and Cilan looked 19 instead of 15, and Jessie and James' 17 year old selves looked 23) lol

Aye, there's the rub; a LOT of animes make their characters look older than they're supposed to be. Like how you sure wouldn't know the Sailor Scouts are 14-16 to look at 'em. Or how as the Ichigo and friends really don't look 15. And, of course, the cast of Highschool of the Dead (especially the girls), who REALLY don't look like teenagers...

I want Ash to age, so that way they can move on to a new protagonist. As much as I love Ash, I'm getting a little tired of him.

Watch them say in the first episode of this series that Ash is 10 years old.

The sailor moon girls are 14-16? I can see 16 (girls develop VERY EARLY in the NorthEastern part of the USA) but 14? Oh my gosh! lol
