So, I really don't get this at all. A friend and I were talking about this, and we were like, whaaaaaaat!?! *lost mode* and we were like um... Pokemon anime has been going on this like the first generation has been out. Shouldn't Ash be at least 22 by now..? Where is your logic; Pokemon creators. ;.;
I can understand their point with it being a cycle of new audiences(usually around that age) but it's still really weird to see him go through everything that he's done and not age at all. I would expect him to be in his late teens(anywhere before 20) at the very least by now.
