The thought that Ash was OLDER than I was when the franchise began is still mind blowing…
But then again, some of you here weren’t even born or were infants. 25 years is more than enough time for a newborn to become full fledged adults with kids of their own. A lot happened during the 25 years. We saw the end of the 20th century and the rise of the internet, the evolution(or degradation) of society, the rise of social media, etc.
Meanwhile, Ash has always been the late-1990s kid who has somewhat been adapting to the current trends and norms ever new generation.
Ash should be at least 35 years of age if he was to have aged normally.
