    Me: What about that old theory about how ash passed out in the first ever episode from pikachu's thunderbolt and that all of his adventures were just a dream?

    4 Seasons being a year can’t be assumed. You can’t compare real life seasons to Pokémon seasons
    Also different regions have different seasons, I.e winter in Canada, at the same time it’s summer in Phoenix. So that’s not 1 year difference

    aging works differently in the pokemon universe... humans don't age but instead have the choice to evolve into an older looking version of themselves or can stay the same... simple as that... I think Ash wants to stay in his 10-year-old form until he finally becomes a pokemon master!

    What if, before the Ash reboot, it was really just him and his friends PRETENDING to go on a Pokémon adventure. Even though in reality they were just playing in each other's backyards. That way the memories were somewhat there. They still knew eachother afterwards, but yeah. The first few like nine seasons could have just been Ash and his neighborhood friends pretending to be Pokémon trainers until they were actually old enough. It would mostly make sense. :]

    I think realistically he's 20, but the pokemon world doesn't seem to work like that? There's evidence to prove that the girls are around the same age as ash. I just think that pokemon will go on for many years and they don't want to deal with characters aging so they just call it how they want.

    So here's a couple questions for you!! Why doesn't anyone ever name their Pokemon? They just call them by their species. That would be like me calling my dog "Dog" all the time. And considering all the battling he has done, why hasn't Pikachu evolved?

    That rule doesn’t work with low numbers like if you are 10 the acceptable age is 10/2+7=13 which is higher than your age so by that logic dating another 10 year old is wrong (tbh I do not think children are capable of dating anyway but whatever)
