Repeating what was already said, but hey!

That depends on what you are asking I suppose; to travel at all or start travelling. For the former I'd say there is no age limit; some veterans in the games still do battles after all so if there's a motivation for them to continue travelling and training their Pokemon. (As for a stronger canon case, Wes the protagonist in Colosseum is an established trainer already; older teens/young adult and with two Eeveelutions).

And I suppose there's the same deal with trainers starting out, although the reasoning for someone to start older than usual is still a factor in that. Just has to be backed up well really. (And BW is a canon case with the protagonists reportedly older than previous generation games. And the whole Belle/father relationship showing even some parents in the Pokemon world can be overprotective of kids going off to have adventures.)
