She started as 10 and her appearence hasn't changed since, so chances are 11 tops

DeoxysTrainer

Ok,I can agree with that

Kyle Delta

When she started out in AG, she was 10. Now that she's in the BF season, I'd say she's 11 now.

I've heard that May's 10, but I recon she looks about 14 at least...

DeoxysTrainer
12th January 2006, 9:58 PM
I dunno,I still think she is 10-11

Characters don't really age in the anime, but if you want to believe so, then May is 11 since it's been a whole saga since she was 10 (Hoenn), and half of another saga (Battle Fronteir: Kanto).

There is an age thread at the top of this page for discussions like these.

I know I was playing Coll with Leaf Green Team and I looked at the character. Considering his height and build, he's got to be fourteen at least. And the other AG characters are around the same age.

But the idiot writers wrote her as ten despite her having "features" that are more developed than those twice her age.

Uh, Geki, it's still not confirmed she is 11. And DarkGirl, looks can be deceiving, but this thread isn't about her looks either.

She's 10! That's how it started out and knowing the people who do the pokemon stuff, they haven't changed it

I can tell you right now she's 11-13.

13th January 2006, 3:35 PM
well she started out at 10 years old, and she might still be 10 (Ash only mentioned a year passing in the mini movie for the third movie, the day he and pikachu met, which was his birthday, but that could be dub only)

my estimate is around 10 and a half- 12 years at the moment

Alfonso
13th January 2006, 3:38 PM
Uh.

The day Ash got Pikachu wasn't his birthday. Trainers get Pokemon when they turn 10 years old, but not actually *on* the day they turn 10. Think of it like college or school terms: If you're 10 before or on September the 20th, you get a Pokemon, you get a Pokemon on that day. If you turn 10 after September the 20th, you have to wait until next year.

It would be too weird to have 4 kids all turn 10 on the same day.

My guess for May's age is 12.

I remember hearing it was his tenth birthday, that could have been dub only though. either way, he would have aged a year anyway so it dosen't matter!

Deoxys Prime
13th January 2006, 3:42 PM
Well, I think she looks 16ish. I know I am way off, but they make anime characters look way older than they really are. So I'm guessing maybe 12ish?

kennychan007
13th January 2006, 4:06 PM
I think she is same as Ash. As Pokemon is written in 1996 - 1998.

She should be 17 years old, even if her look like 11 - 14 years old

How this thread's been open this long is beyond me. (This one, not the hyperlinked one.) May is not seventeen, and she doesn't look like she's sixteen. This thread isn't about her looks, provided that this stay open.

EDIT: Another thing. ASH ISN'T SEVENTEEN YEARS OLD EITHER.

I was confused about May's age at first, too. I was decieved by her succulent...er... fairly large breasts. But isn't a saga like equal to half a year or something?

Atoyont
16th January 2006, 1:47 PM
I don't know. Ash was 10 when he left Pallet Town, so he's probably somewhere around 12-13. May's maximum age now is 11. Oh, and STOP THE ASH/MAY SHIPPING! It's Ash & Misty, duh. Check out these episodes: #2 Pokemon Emergency, #20 Ghost of Maiden's Peak, #23 Tower of Terror, and #103 Misty Meets her Match. If you still don't believe me, go to http://www.pokemon.com/flash.asp and check out Misty's Song.

You should all be ashamed of yourselves. Just take a good look at the poor old Official Age Thread. Look how useless and insignificant you've made him feel. The poor guy didn't have much going for him in the first place, and here you all are, making him bawl his beady widdle eyes out by gallavanting off with another age thread! For shame....for shame....

As for Haruka, she's a 10 year old. And until the animé says otherwise, you can't really argue with that fact. Witness the overwhelming power of immortallity in the pokémon world, and seethe with bitter jealousy.


and check out Misty's Song.
I always smile when people suggest that tripe is a form of concrete evidence. Always. See ---> :D

Oh, and check out #3 Ash Catches a Pokemon, not Pokemon Emergency.

I'd say she's either 11 or 12...maybe even 13..she has too much of a body to be 10...

ghost master
16th January 2006, 2:37 PM
ok we just have to assume that Max is still 8. Ash is still 14 since I believe it was stated right around the beggining of AG he was 14. May is still 10. Until either the writers or the actual show updates their ages. Such as if Max gets a starter from a proffesor. Than we could assume ash would be 16,May 12, and max 10.

Misty's song is a dub song but that's another story.

Dude, Misty's song is a dub invention.

As for Pokeshipping, the only thing the writers have done is done a very good job of phasing it out in AG into obscurity. The ship has very little going for it anymore, there's no guarentee that they even care about the ship (or the character) anymore.


[QUOTE=freaktron015]i keep thinking she's 10...

That's because she IS ten. :/

Fine. You still don't believe me? For final proof, see Movie #2, The Power of One. There's no proof for Ash & May. You only want it to be that way because May "looks better". X O

Big deal. Ash is just trying to help May. If you give May a "partner", Make it Drew.

Well if there ever was an obsessive shipper. Fact, nobody here cares. Go to the shipping section if you want to rant about a dead ship.

Rex Kamex
18th January 2006, 12:43 AM
Okay, now this thread is really getting out of hand since it even changed the subject. T Lord, you're telling people to stop with the Advanceshipping yet you brought it up.

Like it's been said before, there is an age discussion thread.

EDIT: To re-answer the question though, I still think May is ten though it is likely that she grew a year older. Or, perhaps May was, say, ten and a half and happened to have been a Trainer for at least half a year. May didn't have to travel a whole year to turn eleven.

No, it doesn't. The only thing we know is that Satoshi, Shigeru, and Haruka were ten when they began their respective journeys. No specific ages have been given for the other characters.

And on a side note, this is the worst thread ever.

If you were to count up the years, then he would be around 17, Except the creators maybe decided that they wont age, by the LOOKS of it. Therefore May is ten along with Ash, and she will always be 10.

CyberCubed
18th January 2006, 5:46 PM
I think the problem with people is they're counting each "season" as another year.

Fact is, Johto and Hoenn probably only took around 9-12 months to travel though. It seems long to US since they're 3 year regions, but in show time they're probably only a year long at the most.

You are one of the people that gives Pokeshipping a bad name. Lots of PokeShipping hints were dub-made.

But that's off-topic >_> I think May would be 11 or 12... I know, she looks nothing like that age.

*Grumble* (to Neopolis3 and CyberCubed)
Whatever. I think the Kanto/ Johto etc. leagues take place once a year.
So at the end of the Hoenn saga May will be 11.
