Well payday is acrualy throwing golden coin, so either they are throwing lost change or gold coins. The animation for payday is golden coins if i femember

If pokemon was real couldn't you just tell meowth to use payday regardless of whether it was in battle?

How do you even begin to get to 47 000 people in Kalos if you based it on France ? France has a population of 65 million people living there , over a thousand habitants per meter square , and is over 650 000 meters square . So how the hell do you reach 47 000 when the region of Kalos is basically a representation of the whole country ?

In scenario 2, You made an assumption but did not mention it in the video. The assumption is that the money from PayDay is coming from anyone not using the payday grinding method. Without this assumption, As the money that the grinders have grows its more likely money will just be moving between grinders, thus slowing down the rate of, but not preventing, the economic implosion.

As an economic historian, I was with you until you started claiming massive civil wars and death in the last couple of minutes. There is almost no point in history where that has ever happened for economic reasons, and we HAVE had points of history where over a quarter of the wealth was held by less than 1% of the population. Basically, the disaster is massive technological regression, mass starvation, and mass death, for everyone except the Meowth and Smeargle owners who got us into that mess. You might get lucky and see some death, but it would almost certainly be promoted by other meowth/smeargle holders who point the blame at each other.

Pokédollars are yen. Literally Japanese yen. The symbol used was invented for western audiences, but the Japanese versions use yen. I'm not sure how MatPat missed that. That would make 100 Pokédollars closer to $0.89.

Meowths get their money from stealing... they’re stealing from you. They briefly cover it in Meowth’s episode.

Even if the payday movement printed money, inflation would be much lower than what we have in Argentina. 😢
Chazz vc (12 days ago)
But you wouldn't be stealing from the richest people forever. Eventually you will just be stealing from the other Pay day abusers in a never ending game of tug-a-war. The economy would just change it's currency to something the Pay day can't steal, or just go 100% digital currency which means there would be nothing to teleport into battle that is spendable.

Imagine instead payday uses your own money
Paul Wiele (13 days ago)
But wait, there's more! GDP is the total value of transactions in the economy, not the amount of money in circulation. GDP counts uses of the same individual units of currency, whether in cash or just in changing numbers in electronic records. I pay you a dollar bill for something, you use that same dollar bill to pay for something else, the GDP grows by $2. But Pay Day doesn't throw transactions, it throws currency, specifically coins. Long before you hoard all the money, you'd cause a totally different problem by taking literally all coins in the world out of circulation. Small transactions would have to be done electronically only or not at all, as would transactions not involving whole number multiples of whatever denominations the Pokemon world presumably issues in paper bill form. Countries would either have to issue different low-value physical currency made out of something not useful for battling, or go cashless, or there would be small but significant changes to the price of everything as businesses work around these asshole trainers stealing all of their, and their customers', change.

DEADPOOLII (13 days ago)
or C) its literally converting whatever materials in the pokemons body into a physical form of money(like say gold or palladium), so while not a form of fraud or theft, is a form of money making at the expense of the pokemon using payday health or lifespan

Mario Alberto Moreno (13 days ago)
That's great, an impressive theory, but I got a doubt, How much value has money, in general, in the Pokémon world?, because really, if you have played any game you can realize that, aside of the shops, money doesn't seem to matter all that much; the criminal organizations don't go after it, people gave you things for free over the most random things, almost like if the money doesn't even exists, you say that it would ruin economy, but what if economy doesn't even exists anymore, just like in super Mario odyssey, what if in the Pokémon world, money is nothing but an excuse to get people to do things

And what are the odds that the .21% arn't stealing from the .21%? You are assuming this is strictly a reverse robin hood scenario. If it is a robin hood scenario and all that happens is everyone abusing payday is stealing from each other, things are not nearly so grim. Throw probability into your conclusion and it becomes that your conclusion isn't so likely.

Actually Payday is supposed to use the money a Meowth picks up. Cause you know Meowth loves shiny things. So even though it's possible in-game, in "reality" I doubt any Moewth would have found such a huge amount of money to throw.

so when i first watched this i was feeling lax, perhaps even helpful. but upon watching this the second time i can actually say, without a doubt that you are totally wrong. allow me to explain. yes you're close. amulet coin+payday is a good start. and since we're talking gen 7, you mentioned poni canion, we should consider more moves than just  pay day. specifically, in generation 6 there was an event for a happy meowth. it is the only way to know the move happy hour for a meowth. or in gen 7 there was an event for a happy hour rockruff which persists even after switching out. but using happy hour meowth just streamlines it a bit more. now since happy hour and amulet coin both stack together that level 100 meowth getting 50% buff from the amulet coing and 50% from happy hour nets a (L= level) 10L poke-yen per attack. but wait there's more. in generation 7 there is also a  mechanic allowing wild pokemon to come help out an injured pokemon. the lower health they have the higher chance for an SOS encounter. and meowth happens to learn a move that can knock an opponent down to 1hp without knocking them oout, thus maximizing the chance for an SOS encounter. couple that with the ability intimidate or pressure, if you could find a way to skill awap it over, (which further increases the chance of an SOS encounter) and the item adrenalyn orb (which EVEN FURTHER increases the odds of an SOS encounter)  your wild friend will be calling for allies almost every turn, resulting in you being able to knock out a pokemon without having to go through both the encounter, the victory screen and knockout animation, essentially making the forging of money 2 maybe 2 and a half times as fast. letting you destroy economies that much faster.

One thing you need to add in is the vs seeker. I use it in fire red to battle the same trainers over and over and over again. Now add in the amulet coin and the level 100 meowth. You are making way more especially the one hotspring area... Insane
Kacey Jamison (19 days ago)
What if it happened? lt surge is a war veteran my guess is either this situation happened or it was a war to control the strongest Pokemon. Because most of them are more powerful than nuclear weapons It would explain alot and why more Pokemon came to being years and decades after the war. Take the first games as a few years after the war small population of people and Pokemon and as time passes more people and Pokemon emerge cause the planet had time to rebound from the horrific loss of life that war created.
The only problem with this theory is you're assuming the trainers won't be spending this money at the same time. Off the top of my head I'd say the effects would be far more unpredictable.

Someone should make a Pokémon fangame where you can decide what profession you have, like do you want to be a professor, a breeder, a store owner, a Gym Leader, etc. That would be really cool.
Madeleine x (19 days ago)
I remember in the Jirachi Pokemon movie, Jirachi teleported a ridiculous amount of chocolate and candy and when Ash & Co wondered where the hell Jirachi got it all, the focus cut to the rest of the circus where vendors' goods were just disappearing. If a Pokemon can teleport food it's reasonable to assume that they can teleport other things like money, too.

Austin is a drug
One point you seem to miss in the "stealing" scenario. You seem to assume that the stolen money only come from the people not involved in this grinding. And when there are only 0.21% involved and wealth is mostly equal, this will be the case. But once the grinders accumulate a sizable portion of the wealth, more and more money is going to be stolen from them slowing their progress in ruining countries. And there is an issue of them stopping. Seriously. When you only have enough money to make ends meet (as most of us are) you see money as "the moar the better". But once you get past a certain point, earning more money is... Just becomes not worth it. There is such thing as "enough money" (unless you have some physiological disorders). Money don't have intrinsic value and once you don't have to worry of them running out in your children lifetime, working 8 hours a day to get more... looses it's appeal. 0.21% grinders are going to cross this line before ruining everything. So there is hope.

Leonard Romano (25 days ago)
You made an mistake in your final calculations for the stealing scenario! You assumed, that the income of one person would be linear with respect to time but that is not the case, as of yours your money would be stolen aswell. It is true that in this scenario the normies who are not farming will be losing all their money, but the rest of the money does not increase but stays at a fixed amount. So using some mathematics you can see quite easily that in the end the distribution of the money will converge towards a scenario where the money is evenly distributed among the farmers. Assuming that the amount of money availabe on earth is extensive, i.e. scales linearly with the worlds population it is easy to see (let's assume one person adds the amount of money a person needs to live), that the amount of money a farmer has will be constant even as population increases (poverty often results in higher birthrates). So let M be the amount of Money and N be the worlds population then M= x*N. So the money $ a farmer has will converge towards $=M/(0.21%*N)=x/0.21%~476*x so around 476 times the money they would need.
