How long do you think pokémon live? Like, will Pikachu outlive Ash or the other way around?

This is an interesting question. I think it probably varies from pokémon species to pokémon species (some dragon types are said to live for thousands of years, but bug pokémon evolve so quickly I would wager they have a few years at most), but as for pikachu specifically …

I think our best guess is to look at the only old pikachu we’ve seen in the anime.

S1E69, “The Pi-Kahuna,” has an old pikachu named Puka. Fortunately for us, we get a flashback to Puka’s youth, back when his trainer first found him:

This was twenty years before the actual episode takes place. Twenty years later, Puka (and his trainer) look like this:

Puka has wrinkles around his eyes, you can’t really see it in this shot but the fur on his ears and tail is a bit ruffled and worn, and he is considerably larger than Ash’s pikachu (though that doesn’t necessarily denote age). Point is, twenty years have passed and not only is Puka still alive, but he has noticeably aged. Not in a drastic way, perhaps—I wouldn’t say he’s that much farther along than his trainer—but he has definitely aged. And while he does have a special connection to the ocean, being a surfing pikachu and all, we have no evidence that affects his lifespan. (And besides, Ash’s pikachu is pretty special as well, what with his enhanced power.)

All we really have is speculation still, but Puka is at least twenty years old and is still going strong, so I would say that Ash and Pikachu likely have many, many more years ahead of them. I would say that pikachu probably have lifespans close to that of the average human (but again, that’s speculation), so the real questions are whether anything other than old age would take either Ash or Pikachu out (they don’t exactly live the safest lives …) and how old Pikachu already is when he and Ash meet. Pikachu very clearly isn’t a baby, after all, even accounting for pichu’s lack of existence in Gen I.

Personally, I like to think that Pikachu was ten years old when they met, just like Ash. Aside from Pikachu being somewhat bratty and immature at times (not used to/confident in battles, not very strong until he gets his power-ups from the lightning bolt in the first episode/charge-up in the Boulder Badge episode, etc), I think it’s just somewhat heartwarming and cute to think they’re the same age. I don’t know, I’m a softy like that. (Plus, like Hiccup and Toothless, I think it’s pretty undeniable that Ash and Pikachu are platonic soul mates, and Hiccup and Toothless are the same age, so …)

So yeah, those are my thoughts! But of course, it’s all speculation, so who knows what the truth actually is. =P

Oh, I forgot about Puka! Those wrinkles make him look older to me than his trainer does, but I guess that doesn’t mean much since we don’t know how old he was when Victor found him (at least that I can remember).

Anyway, thank you for the thoughtful answer!

Anonymous asked: do u know if anyone has asked the voice actress of Misty is she's a pokeshipper?

I don’t know which voice actress you mean, but here’s the closest I have:

- This bit from an interview with Rachael Lills (US original VA) where she’s asked if she thinks if there’s any likelyhood of a relationship developing between Ash and Misty. (Unfortunately I don’t have a source for it though because I saved it from some forum thread ages ago.)

- This scan with an interview with Mayumi Iizuka (Japanese VA) where she says that she likes how Misty is protective towards Ash.

Even the Pokemon’s food looks great.

Anonymous asked: When someone attacks you, I get mad like someone is attack a friend. That is YOUR prerogative and it is NOBODYS business but your own on what you do with your life. Not everyone is looking for relationship and I'm happy your strong enough to say "I don't need anyone, I complete myself." So if anyone wants to gang up on you again, I'll always have your back.

You’re super sweet, thank you so much! ♥
