A fictional universe that isn't ours...?

We don't know anything about the physiology or the society of the humanoid species in Pokemon's universe, so we can't say it doesn't make sense just because it doesn't fit our way. Lower chances of survival also helps make sense of lower age of marriage.
Just because they look, talk, and act like us doesn't mean they are us. Age is relative, ours only hold on basis with our species; you can't use our measurement of "adulthood" to other universes (especially when it barely works for us anyways). Physical age hold not that much influence on maturity levels/brain age.
This is a great question. It seems they are on equal ground; respecting the pokemon might be an important aspect of the humans' culture. Considering how pokemon aren't totally hunted by most of the humans and how they treat the pokemon as more like partners rather than pets. Maybe the humans have better healing abilities than pokemon do?

90% of pokemon fans hate/dislike Pikachu, if you are one of the 10% who don't, copy and paste this in your signature (started by Rukario907)
