I think at this point Atty would pay £5 just to get the dude to let go of him so he could escape, that fact that he gets a pokemon (albeit currently useless) is a bonus if anything. Also gotta wonder how this guy makes a living, a pokeball is £2, so even £3 profit on all transactions, its kinda a pittance and newbies aren't THAT common that it coulda be viable in any way.

Before I got my copy of red, I overheard a conversation about the game and misheard them, so I spent a bit of the game wondering why there'd be a magic carpet in it.

Dat first and last panel. Atty's face just makes the page, like he's meeting a drug dealer for the first time, or worse, those unscrupulous perfume/cologne vendors that approach you at the mall.

Five bucks via PayPal says its a Magikarp.

Considering the fact that this is going through the Fire Red storyline, essentially.

It's obviously Magikarp. So all the assumptions that it would be anything /other/ seem highly invalid. You people have way too much time, and expect way too much of H0ly.

I know it's fun and all, but still... c'mon. We all know it's Magikarp.

Worst comes to worst, he can just use the Magikarp as a bludgeon. If there's anything Jared Kowalski has taught us, it's that blunt force trauma from a 22 pound fish can be just as effective as any other attack.

Oh well, if he does buy the Magikarp at least it'll be another slab of meat for take hits for DT.

Also, why does Atty's fag smoke have to be so considerate all the time? Why wouldn't it just blow into the dude's face making him cough and giving Atty a chance to escape?

So, clearly (almost) everyone expects it to be a Magikarp, which is totally fine with me because then Atty will eventually have a dang Gyarados, which is magnificent.
But I feel morally obligated to point out that when Mr. Creep here first showed up? I totally expected him to be all, "Hey, kid... Wanna buy some dru-I mean, Rare Candy?"

...I'm a bad person.

A magikarp isn't too bad (especially since Atty won't likely bother with fishing), I mean at least it evovles into something really good. If it were a luvdisc for instance, it'd be a much nastier deal. Those guys are awful weak.

I have finally, after much thought, come up with a method for Atty to train a magikarp in his own special way. How much XP does it get for KOing a trainer before they turn round and pull the "I looked you in the eye, now you have to battle," bit?

@The_mad_one: Well, technically you can... There's that Magikarp, of course, but you could also buy some Pokemon at the game corner (though you had to buy them with game coins, which were rather expensive to get unless you were really lucky at the coin games).

Also, I'd think selling Pokemon would be somewhat forbidden or at least frowned upon, seeing as it would be something similar to slave trade in the real world :p In both of the above cases, the sellers were either a shady sham, or team rocket in disguise (and who's to say the magikarp seller isn't also from team rocket? :P)

Splash While I realize you have probably never seen it happen, you do realize splash used to have a percent chance of doing something right? And when it did? Oh boy, what a show! I've only seen it once, while struggle training a magikarp vs another magikarp, it summons a huge tidal wave and knocks out the opponent.
In the modern versions of the game it is disappointingly crippled to a no-show always lame attack. :( There were some really cool secrets in the old red/blue/yellow cartridges.
I always bought the magikarp, just because and usually trained it.
