This is just a short debate on the age of the main protagonist of Pokemon: Ash Ketchum. I believe that he should at least be 11 years old due to the short clip on the 3rd Pokemon movie where Ash celebrated the anniversary of the day he received Pikachu.

Ash is in fact 0 years old because Ash exists neither on Earth nor in this universe.

Thus, the time frame that occurs in Pokemon world and universe are incomparable with that of this Earth.

A year is defined as he time taken by the earth to make one revolution around the sun.

Thus, Ash is not at least 11 years old.

Thank you, come again.

Oh and before you try and argue my definition of a year or argue that it's another Earth, there is no planet named Earth in the Pokemon universe so please try harder.

In conclusion, Ash is in an incomparable time frame to the one that is measure din years and thus should not be at least 11 years old.

Thank you.

You're taking the idea of this debate too much too a literal level. I am arguing on behalf of the imaginary Pokemon world which does not exist, not a world that is perceived to actually exist. In the non-existent world of Pokemon, Ash Ketchum starts his journey as a 10-year-old child who may receive his first Pokemon, where he gets his long-life partner Pikachu (well for us it's long-life). What I am saying is that in the anime he has at least gained a year in age due to other produced clips.

Your wikipedia source showed me that ageing happens and exists in this universe, not in the Pokemon one.

Your bulbapedia source mentions that Ash is 10 years old (which is below 11).

On top of this, you never once stated that my definition of the word 'year' is incorrect since you never proved there to be a different definition of it.

Thanks, great debate.

Enjoy your loss.

Ash should age. Honestly these people are right. Ash doesn't act like a 10 year old boy. He travels without an adult, acts as a mentor to other trainers younger then him, and deals with making adult decisions such as buying dinner, where to stay at night, and trusting strangers. Not only that but in episode 60 Ash is supposed to go on a date with the new pokegirl, Serena, in the X and Y series. Ash is acting much older then he did when he started out. Ash should be at least 14 or 15., old enough to start dating and taking care our yourself, but still kind of immature and not completely adult like. And anyways, most kid shows have teenagers as the main character, just look at nick, disney, and cartoon network shows. Even Finn from adventure time is 14 and that show is more appealing to kids then Pokemon. Plus not only kids watch Pokemon, I know at least 10 high schoolers that still watch it. I'm 19 and I still watch it. It is for kids, but a lot of teens around 13/14 watch it too.

Con is very cocky, considering I believe that pro won. He is quite cocky, yet he won't accept the same debate challenge from me? Why do you think so voters?
