A lot of characters in other anime don't age; it's not really a big deal that Ash is still 10 imho. My only gripe is that I wish they never mentioned his age to begin with - better for it to be left unknown so fans can speculate and make it whatever they'd be satisfied with.

True, a lot of character do not age, and honestly I do not care anymore because the Pokemon anime got ridiculous after the 3rd gen.

Yup, and I remember Brock saying " After all these years we still fall for team rocket's traps." He said in that episode where Ash caught Corphfish. *spelling?*

Actually, I believe the answer is from the very first episode of Pokemon. For those of you that don't remember, while Pikachu and Ash where out on the Route, Ash saw a large peacock bird Pokemon, Ho-Oh, flew over Ash and over the rainbow, glittering. In Ho-Oh's Pokedex entry, it says as Ho-Oh flies on his seven colored wings, anyone that sees it is granted Eternal happiness. Now Ash saw it, so Ash is granted eternal happiness. And what is Ash's wish/eternal happiness? To be on a Pokemon journey. That is why he is always ten. But I'm sure that it is meant to target young viewers, but that is my theory.

Wow Piplup, I've never heard that theory before. It actually makes the whole series seem much more magical and reasonable now.

ADDITIONAL: Ooops, I didn't know this was an ancient thread, kwehehe.
