Weird O.o I got the impression the boss of team rocket wouldnt give them a lot of funding. Mainly because they havent had one succes sense the show started. I still wanna know where ash and the others get theres though. Thats my main curiousity.

Maybe there are cash prizes included in Leagues and Contests, but yeah: good question. I think I prefer not to know really.

I think the rockets are getting their equipment from scrapyards and the main characters from the money tree in Ashes back pack. Meh I have no idea for man chars because I don't think the writers do either.

Ash and "the gang" get their money from contests, leagues, pokemon centers (?) and their parents ((also, Brock and Misty owned gyms, that's a few grand right there, and May's parents own a gym.)).

The Rockets get their money from...well...charity?

Team Rocket's wallet should be hung and dry at this point. The boss has stopped supporting their financial issues a long time ago due to their constant failure. They must know the secret to a money tree! Get them !

We know that Team Rocket does odd jobs a lot lately (like selling bottlecaps or whatever). They flop a lot, but sometimes they're really successful. Maybe if we imagine that the times they're successful then they're REALLY successful, then...It's a stretch but I think it's the best we've got. ^^;

I was gonna say, "no way that could buy a hug robot. Also thinking on it, when they make a robot, that must cost thousands, now times thousands with how many robots they made lol.

I try not to think about where they get money from, it ruins the show's quality. But I'll bet it's rather expensive to take care of 6 Pokemon and yourself. Good thing Pokemon Centers are free.
