he could at least keep parts of his experience.
i mean at the beginning of the black/white season he was again like "oh a serperior!" *checks dex* "it's a grass type...? go, palpitoad!"

Eventually Pokémon makes R rated movies and M games.

You mean like the Pokemon manga where Pokemon actually die, characters age, and real life lessons are learned?
User avatar #6 to #3 - oliveirajo (08/24/2013) [-]
Yeah, that would... but the audience would eventually quit... And the creators would make less money from that, anyway.

He could have passed down the torch to someone else... red?
User avatar #26 to #16 - sketchE (08/24/2013) [-]
according to something i read ash the series was supposed to grow with its audience with ash eventually growing into red. i cant remember if it was 4kids or nintendo but they stopped that and made it how it is
User avatar #73 to #16 - angelious (08/24/2013) [-]
shame on you...red is thousand times better than ash. no way would he accept something for a lowly peasant like that ...

not necessarily. Naruto is still going strong after 14 years.

naruto has shippuden, where they are teenagers.
User avatar #61 to #59 - xdeathspawnx (08/24/2013) [-]
That is my point. People still watch Naruto even though the characters get older and more powerful throughout the course of the show.

apparently that was the original plan with ash eventually growing into red

I don't know what you're talking about. The Pokemon anime is a dark and grim tale about an errant wish to "embark upon a great adventure" being taken literally by a godlike being known to grant wishes that will bring happiness when spotted by mortals, thereby accidentally dooming an innocent boy to never age, mature, or become a man, for he must ever embark upon that great adventure, but never be allowed to complete it.

on a semi related note the gen 3s male character does not actually have white hair. if you look closely at a picture of him you can see he has black hair under the green band. hes wearing a white hat.

From what I understand, the series so far has only taken place in the span of less than two years. Wouldn't be the first time for such a thing to happen.
User avatar #48 to #8 - kyuubey (08/24/2013) [-]
I think during the orange islands they mentioned something about having travelled for almost a year.
User avatar #50 to #48 - thatguyontheright ONLINE (08/24/2013) [-]
And Ash started on his birthday... and he celebrated his birthday early in the series...so the series has a floating timeline, or Ash is older, they just never incorporated mentioning his ages...and making him look older.
User avatar #52 to #50 - kyuubey (08/24/2013) [-]
According to bulbapedia Ash is still 10 as of BW episode 1.
User avatar #53 to #52 - thatguyontheright ONLINE (08/24/2013) [-]
I still say floating timeline.
User avatar #13 to #8 - tokitoki (08/24/2013) [-]
But... But isn't there close to 800 episodes by now?

For once, time passes faster in the real world.
User avatar #25 to #13 - sketchE (08/24/2013) [-]
well some take place over the course of a few hours. similar to dragon ball z with episodes lasting longer than real time
#29 to #25 - motherfuckingkenji (08/24/2013) [-]
tokitoki made me think of something that conflicts with what thatguyontheright said.
Let's say there are indeed 800 episodes. Let's say each episode lasts one day at the least, but can last up to a week. Let's say there are 100 episodes that span 3 days and 50 that span 7 days. Let's say that even though there might only be 5 minutes between some episodes, the average difference in time is 3 days.
Now, if I've done all that math right, that means the series would have taken place over 3,700 days. That would be a little over 10 years.
By now, Ash would be 20.


I'm pretty sure I overdid it with the number of days because I don't think that's accurate at all.

**** I'm too tired to be doing math and thinking about **** and **** . I shouldn't have even bothered.

Pic related in a couple ways.

Mash was on for around 12 seasons and took place over the course of 3 years.
User avatar #32 to #31 - motherfuckingkenji (08/24/2013) [-]
M.A.S.H. didn't have a story, though. It was just some army peoples doin' funny stuff and betting on ****** Korean bombers and such.
User avatar #34 to #32 - thatguyontheright ONLINE (08/24/2013) [-]
It's all the same. Does pokemon have a story?
User avatar #36 to #34 - motherfuckingkenji (08/24/2013) [-]
Obviously; Ash is on a quest to become the very best like no one ever was.


I'm lying, of course; to catch them is his real quest. His cause, however, is to train them.
User avatar #33 to #29 - sketchE (08/24/2013) [-]
the sabrina arc took place over two and thats about three episodes. while not entirely sure i think the pokemon league is a similar case with the show time being about 3 or 4 days with the show being 4 or five episodes

Consider this. We have about 800 episodes. Lets also assume the each episode takes up pn average 1 day (some episodes have part 1 and 2 over a day, others take place in a day, and some take place in 2 days)
Ash started RIGHT when he hit age 10. After all 800 episodes he should be around 12.2 years old. Men enter puberty between ages 12-15 so ash is probably a late bloomer.

I think i remember reading about a christmas special where ash and misty kiss under the mistletoe but it was cd so you had to listen to it. also they sing carols or something. maybe one of you guys could find it.
#40 - anon (08/24/2013) [-]
Just so you know he doesnt change because on the first episode ash saw a Ho-oh and its description says it grants wishes he wished to be a pokemon trainer forever
#78 - hirollin (08/24/2013) [-]
I think we all remember being 10 or 11 or whatever and there was always this one chick who looked like 7 feet tall and had mosquito bite boobs that we thought were hugely insane.

Seems to me that is just the same thing except mosquito bites in Japan is F-cups.

There are rumors going around about him aging up a bit for the X Y series though. And judging by his proportions in the currently released artwork, they're true.
User avatar #86 to #56 - darkangeloffire ONLINE (08/28/2013) [-]
Seems like it. It's not a whole lot but it's something.

It could be just like in the games where every season has his own MC
Old MCs could make cameos as champions/badass trainers/professors
