    Default Ages of the characters?

    How old do we think certain characters are in Pokémon?

    I got the idea when a 'debate' ensued in the 'Pokémon trainers go to school' thread because of the ages of the PCs. I'd say the Gen 1-4 PCs are 11 or 12, and Hilda and Hilbert are 15 or 16.

    This also expands to gym leaders, champions, etc.

    Cynthia looks to be 23-25 (in my mind) in DPPt, so she'd be 29-33 in BW.

    Would the rivals be the same age as the PCs? I think maybe around a year or two older, but not much. I guess Blue, Silver, and Barry could be 13 or so, Wally and Brendan/May would be the same age, and Cheren and Bianca are pretty much confirmed to be the same age as the PC.

    But what do you guys think?
    Crack some heads for me, darlings. Thank you, and good night.

    I disagree with these two.
    Skyla because 16-17 seems a tad too young for a pilot (although it's not ridiculous), I imagine she would be about the same age as Elesa.
    And since Janine and Falkner are friends (sort of) I would think they are about the same age. Her sprite makes her look older than 13, at least.

    And I also thought Alder was WAY older than 30! His face looks old and wrinkly in the games!

    Clay - 40-45
    Black - 15-20
    Drayden - 45-48

    BTW I am very bad at estimating.

    @Glaciate

    Interesting ages for those and they do seem quite accurate. What about Blue?

    Actually, those seem quite good, with the exception of N. I mean... the hell!? N could only be, at the most, five years older than the protagonist of BW.

    Also, Black (is that Hilbert or Hilda?) couldn't possibly be older than around 16. Professor Juniper looks to be in her early twenties... If your PC was 20 too, then things would get awkward.
    Out of date sig is out of date. Like my wife.
    Dirigibles... URPG... ʇxǝʇ uʍop ǝpısdn... Pipes screensaver... Eyezmaze... Shuckle...
    I claimed Forretress, Binding Band, Cedric Juniper, Simple, and Simple Beam. In Soviet Russia, however, they claimed me...

    Caitlin - 10, 11 (DPPt), 16-18 (BW)

    I wouldn't think Caitlin is 20 in BW. Late teens, definitely. Maybe 19.

    ^^ Caitlin was confirmed to be 14 in DPPt. That's why I only listed her BW age. Besides, doesn't 1O seem young for a pseudo-frontier brain? 14's still young, but it's more believable than 1O.

    I have a WHOLE NOTEPAD dedicated to the ages of the protagonists. ._. It also goes in order of how I have the Pokemon Timeline go in my story, but eh. OTL I'll just list ages that I think they're at. And other characters, which I'll separate by spoiler tags.

    Beware a long list. 8D; Here I go.

    Player Characters and Rivals


    Regional Professors


    Gym Leaders (by region)


    Elite Four and Champions


    Finally (because this is getting to be a REAL long list D8).

    Villainous Teams
    Signature is a WIP for the moment.
    For now, I have claimed: Mewtwo, Member's Card, Wide Lens, Honey Gather, and Psystrike.

    Roxanne: 16, 17
    Brawly: 20, 21
    I'd say Roxanne is a little younger, about 14/15
    Brawly seems about 17/18

    The only protag with a canon age is Red, at 11, so I make him 11.

    Everyone else is anywhere from 10-18 years old depending on how I'm feeling that day or whatever the plot of a fanwork demands, because very little in my headcanon is actually consistent. Also because I feel that their ages were left ambiguous so the players (who are mostly young people) can imagine themselves in their shoes.
