Maybe the Pokemon World is built on Communist ideals?

This has been asked before, iirc :P

Well, tbh, I don't care about how they make money, it's just a freaking anime.

Like Volcanflame said, it's just an anime. It can be in no way compared to real life. No one really cares about where they get their money.

In the games you get money from beating Trainers in a battle so do they do that? I can see it now, Ash and them chasing after a small kid for their money. It'd make the Anime better than it is now.

I reckon Gym Leaders get paid for their job by the Pokemon Association or something.

Betcha Ash's mother sends him enough cash to last a year or so at the start of each region. Together with other stuff.

Maybe Ash & Brock has Infinity of cash so they don't run out to buy Potions and Full Heals.

So this is where they get their money from.

Imagine how the poorer ones have to starve, though. D:

Just like real life.
I'm sure there are discount Pokémarts and such, just like in the real world too, or we could go with the fact it's an anime and we shouldn't care.

I would never go with the latter. So I'll go with that they buy the cheapest stuff they can.

Oh, and I believe they have learned to forage in the wild.

Dawn's a prostitute, and Brock's family owned a Taco cart outside of Pewter City, and has money wired to him at Pokemon Centers.
