Why ash ketchum of pokemon is still 10 years old

" I am sure if you grew up with Pokemon then you understand the question. Why is Ash Ketchum of Pokemon still 10 years old. Isn’t it a little weird to you. Just a little weird that Pokemon has been out for about 15 years and the creators never bothered to make a series where Ash is grown up you know. It seems to me like Ash has been traveling the entire Pokemon world in just one year. That would be the only explanation as to why Ash has not grown up yet. Being an author my self I know that if it has to do with the story then I would not age my characters." (Anime, Pokemon)

He does not age because in the end, it will all be a dream of his

"Being an author my self..."

Really? The writing in this article is garbage!

You're right. The "author" needs to get some pointers on proper grammar and formatting. Even the title has incorrect capitalization, not to mention the improper use of punctuation within the first couple of sentences alone (there may be more but that's as far as I was able to read before giving up).

Since pokemon is for guess that's why they never made him grow up. Plus is rather they keep ash 10 to milk us thenthem telling us that he was dreaming or in a coma. I would like my childhood to not be ruined.

Or all the events in pokemon series happen all within a few months o.O

He doesn't age because it's a cartoon, so his model can remain static. It's like asking why the Simpsons are all the same age after 20+ seasons....what a stupid question.

In all fairness, though, they've changed a lot and had several different "series" of pokemon, and the question is why they've never chosen to do one with him older. Plus the story is linear and the happenings often stack onto one another.

Something like the Simpsons doesn't have different "series" of itself. The Simpsons events don't really stack, either (except for the occasional death of Maude or whatever); they hit the refresh every week for the most part, except when being self-referential for the gag of it. They're the modern family every week, every year.

It's like Benjamin Button. Reverse aging.
Though only Monday - Wednesday, and alternating Sundays.
