Aw dangit, I had a nice big pretty first panel with Atty being surrounded by all manner of rocky dangers, until the gosh darn speechbubbles came along...

See y'all soon.

How come he doesn't have pokéballs left? He just use ONE of the at-least-five that were in Oak's package

If Atty does get a Magikarp, I wonder how he'd end up handling a full blown Gyarados.

@Mio_Chouseki: According to what Oak says after you make the delivery, it was some sort of special pokeball in that package. I suppose receiving the package reminds Oak that the trainer needs some of his own pokeballs, so he gives you 5 regular pokeballs. Since Atty never delivered it, he ended up with only one pokeball. (with some unknown special properties) Lazy dude that he is, he never bothered to buy more.

This is really cool because I have a character in one of my stories that looks similar to this guy.
I have a feeling he's in the process of swindling Atty for all he's worth right now. 500 bucks for a Magikarp indeed...

Also, @krnyong39: It's not actually $500. The Pokédollar or whatever-it-is is based on the yen, so for a more accurate dollars price, divide the number by 50 or 100. So $5–10.

To be fair, $5–10 is more than a Magikarp is worth...

meh. converted, P500,- is only like 5 bucks for a magikarp anyways. I'd demand a demonstration to this magical water type's ability to KO rock types beforehand either way.

What Atty doesn't know is that Mankey like to hang out outside Mt Moon. Little buggers got me past those darn rock types sometimes. Course, I usually just catch a Nidoran and level it up until it learns Double Kick, but you get my point.

I can see it now, he will name it "Fish" and will defeat pokemon either by throwing it like a rock (cause he has done that before) or he will grab it by the tail and swing it like a bat.

If the Pokemon Center thought he was abusive to his pokemon before...

It looks like Atty is under the same impression I was when I first played Pokemon at about age six: "there's a 'flee' option??"

See, the rocket scientist child I was, I actually thought the battle menu;
"Fight Bag
Item Run"
that "item run" was one option, meaning you had to throw an item at the wild pokemon to distract it while you ran away - and the hell be damned if I was giving up my items, so I just plowed my way through all the things with Ember, Scratch or just downright Struggle and a shit ton of Potions for the first fraction of the game.

Why Struggle and Potions, you might ask? Because it also took me AGES to figure out that you coulld actually talk to the Nurse Joys behind counters - yet I knew you could do it in shops because I found that out when I received Oak's Parcel.
But Pokemon Centers? How the fuck did those work, man? :\

I was not a clever child...

...But at least I swapped that Magikarp in and out so damn much that I had one badass Gyarados in no time. >D

As the guy pointed out the Pokeball is free. Technically the Magikarp is only 300 Pokedollars. Pretty good deal actually it just a shame the Poke don't even have water moves.

Mr Fish Perhaps he can go the manly way and wield the karp as a club beating things with it until it gains enough exps to evolve. Since they seem to have incredibly hard skin/scales it would make a good bat.

guys its loosely based off red gen 1 holy said this many times , no steel type so there no metal claw , there lots of stuff they did that makes the games easier for yellow onwards like giving you 5 poke'balls with the pokedex( you find a ball in the forest and there one in the cave (by the start)) makeing it so you can catch a pokemon with a super effective move before the gym battle ect ect ect
