Anime And Manga - Television Tropes & Idioms
Pokémon's May, Dawn, and to a certain extent Misty (even though the last one is actually flat-chested, something explicitly stated on the show) are often accused of being unrealistically "well-developed" for a 10-year-old. In reality, puberty for young girls has gotten much lower in recent generations because girls are fatter than they used to be (a girl needs a certain amount of body fat before she can begin puberty). Thus the average age for puberty to start in girls is actually at nine and ten years old. Not surprisingly, this shocks people in real life as well.
  • Lest we not forget, the world's youngest recorded mother was five years old well before such chemical exposures were likely to have happened; individual differences in this regard are, and have always been, huge. And in any case, minor breast growth can happen even before the puberty kicks in with full force.
  • It's also not uncommon for precocious puberty to be a temporary thing, environmentally or otherwise, such as in an Italian school in the 1970s where boys and girls started growing breasts
  • Plus, babies have been known to grow breast buds and secrete "witch's milk", i.e. infant lactation, due to exposure of estrogen and other hormones from their mother's womb or breast milk.

    In the US, 7% of girls develop breasts at the age of 7, as opposed to the 5% of the 1990s. Not that much of an increase, but considering the population increase, as well, that figure can only grow. Puns.

    This is why they simply have the game protagists as teens now, which they should have been all along

    Well, fat is one of the catalysts, but so is the increasing use of hormones and transgenics in processed food nowdays. Extra hormones in meat, milk and other products plus fat can, over time, kick start puberty in both males and females alike, but it is more noticeable in females since they start puberty naturally at a younguer age.

    Of course, this is on the real world. Not the pokémon one.
