Ash is still 10; compare it to other cartoons

Being someone that has watched the show from the start, I do find it a bit vexing that he is still the same age as when he started out 10 and the show has been running for what 13 or more years already?
I look at other shows where the main character never ages; Timmy from the Fairlyodd Parents the main reason we never see him grow is because his lack of magical belief will result in his godparents going away (although in movies and episodes we see him as an adult and some episodes show holidays that only come once a year and birthday episodes).
Ben Ten is another example except Alien Force shows him and his friends aged by 5 years if I remember correctly. To tell the truth since they were closer to my age I found that season more enjoyable than when he was only 10 years old. I thought Best Wishes was going to do the same after I saw Ash’s new physical design, I was excited thinking that he was going to be aged but I was wrong.
I get having it the same for newer fans and such, but how is that any way to treat those fans that have been loyal since the very beginning? It goes hand in hand with Pikachu’s power-downs at the start of each season. Hopefully, one day we will see Ash grow-up but I doubt it, Flint said that he was around Ash’s age when he first won the Pokemon League so I guess that Ash will still be 10 even then.
