"No, but there'll be SATs for him to fail."

it's a jigglypuff seen from above!

Satoshi/Ash + Pikachu: a 10 year old boy who dreams of becoming a Pokémon Master.

He's still 10?

The age thing is very weird in the anime. He should be older but it doesn't matter at the end of the day.

This site seems to think he's 16. http://satoshipediaeng.altervista.org/ashs-age-in-each-series/

So Lillie cannot touch Pokémon?
That's curious.

Lol, just realized that there is not even going to be a league for him to lose this time around.

No, but there'll be SATs for him to fail.

Does the story restart everytime there's a new game? Sounds like a reboot to me.

Ash is always ten, always forget how to catch pokemons (he ALWAYS forget he need to battle them first and just throw a ball at the first one he see, failling in catching it), so it's nothing new fir the series. Each new game is a soft reboot (like the past events are sometimes (very rarely) mentioned, but the characters reset their knowledge, experience and tactics).
Sometimes, Ash will call an old pokemon toward the end of a game arc to help, usually at the league or in the filler between the games when the series goes a bit faster than the game releases, and with this pokemon, his abilities are at the level he was before... but yeah, nothing unusual in that part.

Alright neat, I thought they related to past series a little bit, but wasn't sure if he always reverted back to amateur trainer.
