Age gap in pokemon anime fans

I've noticed there are a lot of younger anime fans coming to the fandom now who are only like 13-14 years old. So I ask myself, how old were these people when the anime first started in 1998? They were born pretty much at the same time the franchise started.
That means they were only like 6 years old when AG began...as crazy as that sounds. Then when DP started...they were 10.
Meanwhile those of us who were already 10-12 back in 1998, most of us older fans are now in the 18-25 year old range. There's a huge gap now. I think this is why all the old users that were in the fandom back in 2003-2006 aren't around anymore, they all went to College and then moved on with their lives, having no time for Pokemon anymore.
Its really weird to think about it, but this is also why the fandom opinion has changed. When I first came to the fandom those younger fans didn't exist yet, but now here they are. Something to ponder.
