I was watching the anime and it just popped up into my head (stupid YTV for replaying old episodes when they should just get the new season started early...)

So, how does Ash Ketchum pay for his expenses or otherwise cut down his costs as a Pokemon Trainer? (G-Rated answers only)

Well, Ash does walk between inland towns...

If you're wondering how he eats and breathes, and other science facts. Then repeat to yourself "It's just a show, and I should really just relax".

My 3 theories:

1) Ash owes Brock/Misty a lot of money... he's been using the salary they probably get as Gym Leaders to pay everything.

2) Remember the Primeape he had? Well, maybe the guy who took it is getting prizefights for Primeape, and Ash gets a cut. I'm sure Primeape can get some decent $$$ seeing as Tyson can get 7 million for fighting a Danish guy who makes Glass Joe look like Ali.

3) He sells Pikachu's electricity to Pokemon Centers.

Ash & Co. usually get lots of handouts. You know how they sleep outside in sleeping bags. Walk from town to town. The Pokémon Center might feed them and they heal your Pokémon for free. Pokéballs do cost money though, Jessie said they did in the episode where all the Magikarp became Gyarados and that's why they used nets.

Ash doesn't use many Pokéballs really. So, he doesn't have to worry too much. He is usually low on cash, if he has any at all. Pokémon League (didn't have any $$$ for the all you can eat buffet, but since he was in the league it was free)

1. He gets money from trainers he's beaten, like in the game.

2. He's got a Pokémon Mart 10% off discount card.

We probably would have seen him getting money from trainers if that was true. The anime and the game are very, very different.

He sells his organs for money! That's why the show's ending soon!

There is more money being spent on breast implants and Viagra today than on Alzheimer's research. This means that by 2040, there should be a large elderly population with perky boobs, huge erections, and absolutely no recollection of what to do with them.

Actually, the organs bit is G-Rated. The "only G-Rated responses" thing was to keep all we pervs from shouting "Misty sells her body."

My theories:

#1) AshCo. are really undercover operatives for the Squirrel World Dominiation Organization. They're supposed to infiltrate the Pokemon hierarchy and destroy it from within, allowing we, the SWDO, to take over! Wait...you didn't hear that. Ash & Co just have some nameless benificiaries, okay?

#2) In every town, Ash uses his Pokemon for testing of various new medical products. This also explains why Pikachu is omni.

#3) Pokemon Express Blue; the only way to charge.

And lastly, the TRUE way that Ash co. makes money...

They star in fanfics, most of which are bad, and get extra for doing lemons. Sources indicate that Atma and the remnants of AGNPH are supplying these extra funds.
