There are many mysteries in Pokemon. One being why does Ash never seem to age? Is he perpetually 10-years-old? Why is that deemed an appropriate age for a child to go out on their own with vicious wild Pokemon and a highly organized terrorist organization on the loose? Finally, why does Ash seem to have so many girls in love with him and he doesn’t even notice?
We’ve finally got some slight reprieve from reluctant in love Ash Ketchum. (Is it really reluctance though, or is he just too focused on his career right now to have time for romance?) Pokemon XY has switched it up, featuring a romantic escalator kiss between Ash and Serena. I mean, this kiss occurs when the character is on her way out from the series, so things in the show will be exactly the same. But to long time fans this is a huge deal, and also raises the question: is Ash still 10? Is he too young for this? Or is he in an Orphan-like situation, stuck in a body with an aging mind? Next week on Pokemon!
You can watch the video of the scene below (as you can tell by the number of exclamation points, some people were excited):
