    They've not once mentioned a birthday... last thing we heard, ash was ten, but that was at the premiere o_O; Have there been ANY hints, manga or anime hinting at how old he is? XD

    Well, in the 3rd movie Pikachu short, they confirmed that it was one year since they started, making Ash eleven there. I assume that by that same point in Hoenn, Ash would be 12. By that same point in Sinnoh, I assume that Ash would be 13.

    I remember in an episode Ash was in Viridian and he said it has been one year since he been there. So at that time he was eleven.

    n@nd0 It's good to b back!

    Maybe he is 14, because, regions are like countries, no? so he could travel around 4 years

    I believe he's almost 15.

    Collect all 8 Kanto badges - 1 year (said so when they returned to Viridian)
    Two months before Indigo League - 2 months
    Collect all 4 Orange badges - about 3 months
    Collect all 8 Johto badges - 1.5 years
    Collect all 8 Hoenn badges - a little over a year
    Battle Frontier - about 2 months

    i think he is 14.

    but he is based on Red, main character of R/B/G and FR/LG manga series.

    and in FR/LG he is 16!

    This is a genuine question, don't flame me for asking, please. Why does it matter?

    EDIT: New rank, nice!

    Hunter_RuLe < Guess who's back?

    This topic again? Ash is most likely still 10 canon wise. Characters don't really seem to age on the pokemon anime. If they did Ash should be about 15/16 by now.

    Paradise Sky Muahaha.

    Ash is at least 11.
  12. shadow espeon96

    ash is 13-14 because
    Collect all 8 Kanto badges - 1 year
    Two months before Indigo League - 2 months
    Collect all 4 Orange badges - about 4 months
    Collect all 8 Johto badges - 1 year
    Collect all 8 Hoenn badges - 1 year
    Battle Frontier - about 3 months

    But the manga is "based" on the games.

    And in the games, Red is 11.

    I dunno. Does, it really, matter.

    First of all, he's based on the GAME CHARACTER RED.

    Lastly, the Pokemon anime doesn't have f*cking 1-3 year timeskips. :|

    SOS! Its Not Healthy.. He Say Whaaa...

    I would say Ash is 13 or 14. He have aged since he is more mature, and there is no way you could be all awesome and known little in a year. So he had to age eventually , and plus the anime had time and years on it.
