The Pokemon anime came out in 1997 (I was seven years old). He was my first fictional character crush! He would be twenty-five years old now (since he was ten years old when the anime came out). I hope they'll eventually come out with a Pokemon series where everyone are adults, perhaps he's married (hopefully to Misty) and has kids and his kids are wanting to go on a journey too. So then he decides that he and Pikachu are going to do one final journey together (perhaps Pikachu has some babies too), only this time Ash's kids come too! I don't think it's weird that I still like Ash though, because if he didn't stay ten all these years, he'd be three years older than me ^_^; I've told my husband that we should cosplay sometime from Pokemon. I'm not pretty enough to look like Misty though D: So maybe we'll do Ash and Pikachu (one giant Pikachu that is, lol). Anyone else grow up loving Ash from the very beginning?
Me, I've grown up watching Pokemon since episode 1 due to Ash and remember going to the movies to see movie 1 & 2 and am still watching to today due to him ^
Me Too. :) I have love ash since the begining. (although I was introduced to the anime in 1999.)
