    I don't believe that, cause like I said, I hate the "anime characters are ageless" theory. In my opinion, it takes all the fun out of guessing the characters' ages, and how old they might be currently.

    Actually, that's a pretty good theory, now that I think about it....

    Hehe. If Ash were a demon, he would be a demon from the anime series Kyo Kara Maou.

    Because in that series, demons look just like regular humans. And not only that, they appear young in age, but are actually much older. XD!!!!

    That depends on the cartoon. There are other cartoons, like Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z where the characters do grow up. (Within the show, too.)

    Indigo League: 10-11 yrs. old

    Orange League: 11-12 yrs. old

    Johto League: 12-13 yrs. old

    Hoenn League: 13-14 yrs. old

    Battle Frontier: 14-14.5 yrs old

    Sinnoh League: 14.5-???

    So Ash is now 14.5 years old.

    id say about 14-15. the 1st season was about 15 months (1 year when they get back to veridian, plus about 3 months befor the indigo league), that puts us at about 11. in the 3rd movie, it says its the anniversary of ash and pikachu missing, in 3rd season, so another year (mabey 2), so that puts us @ 12-13. plus the rest of johto, all of hoenn (which lasted a number of months as stated in the anime itself), and the duration of the battle frontire. so yeah, about 3 or four years have passed since ash set out for the 1st time!

    the 1st season lasted about 15 months, a year to veridian, then about 3 months to the league. that would put ash at over 11. in the third movies, it is an anniversary since ash and pikachu met, so i guess another year, so there (@ season 3 end) he would be about 12. then theres season 4 and 5 (the rest of johto), so say another year or 2 to guess, so hes about 13/14. hoenn lasts a number of months (as mentioned at the end of season 8), then theres a few months for the frontier. so that would put him @ 14/15. 16 @ the very most!

    I'd like to see the a percentage of the people who believe Ash is only around eleven or so are advance or pearl shippers. Anyway, I think Ash is about 15, for the same reasons others have stated above. But I know they have aged Ash a bit, as he looks a bit older in the most recent episodes compared to the original episodes.

    honey_clover112 tsundere full force!


    I think it's 15, or 14. He does look older in the recent episodes....they're secretly putting some height to Ash so the fans can't see the difference?XD

    And with that new voice actor for Ash, he sounds older as well.

    Im pretty sure he is 14. He can't travel Kanto, Orange Islands, Johto, Hoenn, Kanto again, and Sinnoh in less than a year. He's probably like 14 1/2.

    Yeah, 14 - 15 seems right. An example of Ash heigh, in season 1 he stands besides Erica and looks much smaller. In BF he stands besides Anabel and look almost as tall as she. I think Erica (during s1) was in the same age Anabel was in s9 (BF). And I think Erica (s1) and Anabel (s9) is around 16 - 18 years old. You can also look at the earlier eps with Gary and compare it to the meeting at the end of BF.

    In the anime we know that its at least 3,5 years since he started out on his journey and to that we can add a few years.

    I'd say he's about 13-15. They should have an episode that mentions his age.

    I agree with that but also if you listen to him you can tell hes going through puberty becuase his voice is all high and squeaky next thing we know he will sound like those movie announcers :p

    I think he's between 13 and 16. But who knows?
    Maybe we should ask Ash himself.

    I think it would be better to ask the writers.
