    Hats off. That's definitely the *best Pokemon theory* out there.
    Although I do think it is wrong to consider the whole Pokemon series as a single canon. There was a continuity during the first three cycles (4 generations), but Pokemon Best Wishes officially broke it (btw, this is "sometimes called that" because it is the *original title* ) . Ash _clearly_ is a kid during this cycle, and his keeping memories from the previous cycles were just a vain attempt at keeping the original fans afloat. Of course fans loved Charizard's return.
    Then there is XY, where Ash looks much more mature (yes, I said mature and I stand on my position). In the community, it is considered XY is following DP. BW is its on canon, and Sun&Moon (where, again, Ash becomes a kid) is also its own canon, as it is officially said. The words of the creators are the Words of God, this is not about believing or not : Sun&Moon is a different canon, that's a fact.
    Basically :
    - The main canon is made of Pokemon, Pokemon AG, Pokemon DP, Pokemon XY. Ash grows up during this arc, and is *at least 17 years old* in the end. Continuity can also be seen *when looking at his progression as a Trainer.* Just look at the results of the Leagues : first he is in the Top 16, then in the Top 8 (twice), then in the Top 4, and finally he is a runner up.
    - Best Wishes is its own canon. Ash is 10 years-old, it is a fact stated during the very first episode (even in japanese).
    - Sun&Moon is also separate from the main canon. Maybe it is the same as Best Wishes, who knows... Ash's age is never officially said, but his behaviour clearly is a kid's. And on Twitter it has been officially stated that this Ash is not the same as the one from the main canon.
    - Then, there are the movies. There is literally _no way_ to say which are actually canon. At least they are consistent with their respective canons. That said, the movies 20 and 21 are clearly two new and different canons.
    I know, this is still not consistent (as XY starts right when BW ends, for example). But hey, timeline in the Pokemon anime is a *huge unsolvable mess* xD. The truth is, *it must not be considered a single anime.* This is clear when you watch the show : everything can be different from one arc to another, whether that be the art style, the atmosphere, or the characters. Where XY has a serious tone most of the time, Sun&Moon is the exact opposite. Where Ash is badass and deep in DP, he is a plain kid in BW. This is why I consider the canons as I mentionned above.
    Finally, I'd like to have a word about seasons in Pokemon: how do you know the seasons work the same as in our world? You don't. Most of the time, when a season is mentionned in the series, it is just to reflect the real world (because it supposedly helps the viewer being closer to the series). It pretty much works the same as for american series, where the seasons in the show are the same as in the real world during airing time (winter in the show comes during winter, summer comes during summer, ...).
    So I don't think we can use seasons to check Ash's age.
    I would rather *count the number of days spent during the episodes:*
    . at least a day passes every episode. This means that in the end of DP, at least 757 days passed (= 2 years and a few months).
    . But this is just the minimum. In average, *two days* pass during each episode, which means actually *twice the time happened* between the beginning of the series and the end of DP. So Ash actually grew up from 5 years, making him *15 years old in the end of DP.*
    . If we add XY in the canon, well in the end of this series, Ash grew up from 280 days, making him (probably) 16 years-old.
    Anyway, we're just trying to make sense of something that doesn't. I love some parts of the Pokemon anime, but the whole thing is a mess. DP and XY are definitely great anime shows ; I also like AG (it had a badass Satoshi, awesome moments, Pokemon Contests, and the Battle Frontier).

    Ash was 10 in 1997 right now since he was 10 he was born in 1987 so 2018 - 1987 equals 31 so he should be 31 years old right now, you're welcome. To be honest I just put 2018 - 1987 on a calculator and just got 31 so that's my answer.

    I think Ash isn’t alive. I think all of this is a “dream”. Season 1 Episode 1, right after he gets his Pikachu, Ash sees Ho-Oh who has the power to resurrect the dead. Shortly after he gets SEVERELY electrocuted, this irl would kill anyone. I believe Ho-Oh didn’t exactly resurrect his life, but somehow let Ash’s imagination live on, so he can fulfill his dream of being the worlds greatest Pokémon trainer.
