I remember once the old Pokemon.com mailbag answered this question by claiming that Ash was a timeless character, like Mickey Mouse. Problem is, a timeless character doesn't work when , unlike Mickey Mouse who's featured in gag cartoon and can be watched achronologically, Ash's journey is one with a clear chronology that builds on each episode and series. I agree with Charles that there should just be a new character every series.

Suspension of disbelief to accept Ash as a 10 year old, okay. But it's kinda hard to accept the female protagonists (May, Serena, etc.) as 10 because of appearance. I usually like to think of Ash and the female companion as 12 or 13 when I watch the show. The English series hasn't acknowledged what Ash's actual age in a long time (maybe since Hoenn? I can't recall), so it helps with the suspension of disbelief: 1 year in Kanto, 1-2 years "everywhere else."

If they are willing to switch out the companions, they can easily ditch Ash for a new, more interesting protagonist: taken from the games or someone original each gen. It would be better than Ash's expanding harem.

TCG adaptions for example follow nearly the same formula as Pokemon, and they usually switch out the main character or main cast each gen. A new protagonist that they can develop from newbie to master would highly benefit the Pokemon anime.
