Ash is 665 years old, and if he is ever seen having a birthday, the apocalypse has begun (add 1 to 665, for you slow people)

I accidentally came to a site that shows their age, but it's kinda confusing, I forgot that site coz I only end up there accidentally. It says that Ash is 15 years old, presently in Sinnoh Generation, Misty is 17, Brock is 21, May is 11 and dawn is 10, of course. But it's realy confusing coz pokemon trainer starts at the age of 10, maybe the time in the show is so fast, it's hard to imagine he is now at that age. But remember on the episode of "School of Hard knocks", I guess. Ash says that he is travelling with Pikachu and others for 2 months, that's why maybe this site posted Ash as 15 years old in Sinnoh Generation.

i would say 13 - 15 :/ just a rough guess. Because Dawn = 10 she looks Anime wise alot younger than ash.

Ok I have to say this. If ash is between 12 or 16 then Detective Conan must be 22 or 23 and shin chan he aint alittle boy he is about 15 he is just a midget.

oh lets not forget luffy, who is turning 20 soon.
 
I think that on one on the Pichu Shorts in Jhoto Pikachu went to play with the Pichu Bros while Ash, Misty, and Brock were preparing a party celebrating 1 Year since Ash got Pikachu, making him at least 11, but I wpuld say about 14.

This is crazily confusing as on one episode at the end of the first season he said that it has been a year since he left pallet town

I think the makers of the anime intend to just never make him grow older than 10

Ash started at the age of ten years old at the beginning of the series. In the episode "The Battle Of The Badge", Ash says that it was a whole year since he, Pikachu, and Misty first came to Viridian City. Also later in the short called Pikachu & Pichu in the third movie, Ash said it was the day he met Pikachu, meaning his age at that time would logically be 12. A English promo for the episode "Better Eight Than Never", which involved Ash getting his final Johto badge, said that Ash started his journey three years before, meaning he was then 13 then. From Wikipedia.

Then I guess he travelled in Hoenn Region for 1 year and now in Sinnoh, maybe he is now 15 or turning 15 so soon.

ok, that makes since. But please tell me, is what ash said in the battle of the badge, what the japanese version said? And is the pichu, pikachu short part of the tv series time line? also, is what the annoucer said the same thing the japanese annoucer said in the original?

And I dont trust wikipedia completely

I'm gonna have to say 13-14. The episode before he battles Claire, the Jhoto final Gym Leader, the announcer states that it had been three years since he left Pallet Town. Plus all the time in Hoenn and Kanto again....

That does seem to make a little sense.

Since I don't completely trust wikipedia, I say that he's somewhere between 14-15

Whenever I open this topic to my friends who's alos obssessed about Pokemon, they also think really deep. I first watched the Pokemon when I'm only a grade 2 pupil and now I'm a 4th year highschool in the coming next school year. I'm 16 and I hope he is also 16 years of age, hehe.

His age is mentioned even less in the RAW.

o_O Does it really matter that much? Age in anime is hardly ever indicative of anything about the character. No matter how old he is, Satoshi has yet to undergo any dramatic changes in his appearance. True, he's matured somewhat as a character, but even in the beginning, he certainly didn't act 10.
