Ugh... It's still so dirty, isn't it? Well there is a reason for that: I switched pencils this week and it turns out that I accidentally bought 2H instead of 4H and so, being a softer tip, it didn't clean up as well....

It feels like I've been on a bit of a Manga kick when it comes to Pokemon art (yet again), so I felt the need to make it up to the anime.
I'm still kicking myself that it took 10+ years for me to realize just how cute this kid is, even without his Pikachu but now I think I've finally figured out just what it is: In spite of all that he's been through (movie plots and all) he is still just as pure and innocent as ever but on top of that, he doesn't just "clean up well" he's cute as a button during the few times where he's dressed up a little for the handful of contests and such he's taken part in. (My favorite, though, will still be in Lucario and the Mystery of Mew when he says "I need a cape!")


On a completely unrelated note: I couldn't help but notice that the TV Guide referred to Ash by his proper name "Satoshi" durring last week's episode. :giggle:

Pokemon and all of its creatures/characters, including Ash and Pikachu are (c) Satoshi Tajiri, Nintendo, Game Freak, ViZ and all other respective owners may have missed/not be aware of. I do not own the characters in any way, shape or form, I am just a fan!

I love how you did these two together, I remember watching this with my sister, although it has been awhile since I've watch the show.

I kind of lost track of the show myself around the "Advanced" generation, but picked it up like a bad habit once Diamond and Pear started. Currently, the show isn't so bad, the dubbing might have actually gotten slightly better now that it isn't 4Kids anymore.

Ah, the original Pokemon. I still remember this from when I was 7 or 8.

There's two things I never understood: was why Ash was voiced by a woman for the first 8 seasons, and why Pokemon has been on air for about 16 years in English, but Ash has the voice of a 16-year-old and still looks 10.

Don't forget, though, that men's voices change at some point and children actors are both hard to come by and will also eventually grow up (like what happened with Al's voice actor between the first anime and "Brotherhood") so that is why it is very, VERY common for women to voice young boys.  I actually find it a little surprising that you're saying Ash is currently voiced by a man (Heck, he's even voiced by a woman in Japan if I'm not mistaken, based on the voice I've heard from some of the songs.) but this would also explain why he "has the voice of a 16-year-old" since this is probably about as young as a man who has hit puberty can sound, and even then, it takes a specific voice range.

As for Ash physically remaining "10" after all this time, the fanbase is more cyclical in Japan; they expect Kids to "move on" after a point so the series is "rebooted" with each generation. (which also explains why Ash seems to forget basic things between generations as well and, since Hoenn, always starts with new Pokemon) HOWEVER, my personal reasoning is that if you consider each episode a single day (save for episodes with more than one part or where more than a day is spanned) Ash's whole journey of 700+ episodes would only equal to about 2 years at this point, making him closer to 12 going on 13 currently. 
It's not an airtight theory, but it would explain why he still, for the most part, physically look the same after such an apparently long time.

Alright, that makes sense, but I still looked my age and 12-13. And you wanna know what's funny? For the longest time, I thought the original Ash was voiced by Tara Strong, the voice of Raven from Teen Titans.

You know, I'm actually pretty sure she DID voice him at one point. Not in the series, (at least Bulbapedia doesn't mention it) but I swear I saw her name in the credits during one of the movies; either Pokemon 4Ever or Pokemon Heroes. It's not like it would be out of her range, either, because I think she voiced Ben 10 in the first series (if she doesn't still)

And now you've made me want to check... *looks towards the basement where her DVDs are*

She did, and she voiced Timmy Turner from Fairly Odd Parents. What I find interesting is that almost every girl character she's ever voiced, minus Bubbles and a few others, is goth.
