Why is everyone treating Dawn like that?

Even though the Brock one makes sense...

Or he could stuff it all in his backpack.

Oh, people are treating Dawn like that just because she's new. She has to earn her way to respect. I personally think she's one of the best female leads. She didn't choose a stupid Torchic, she chose a manly Piplup. Lol, Jk.

Imo Torchic and Piplup are equally good in their own right.

Meh, did anyone treat Misty that way when she first appeared?

Well, that thing about Torchic and Piplup, I was just saying that because I don't care for fire types.

As for the Misty thing, I don't think anyone did treat her like that because she was introduced to everyone when they were just getting used to the series, and she was the first female that viewers could relate to, and the first *ahem* attractive female lead. But May, and Max especially, were treated badly just because they were knew. I think even Tracy had a rocky start.

(I never liked Tracy anyway. His sketch pad was annoying and he didn't even try to get a girl. In the Power of One, he hoped they were fighting over whether or NOT he was Misty's girlfriend.)

You're right about the prostitute part, but Brock's family sells rocks.... which is weird. If you don't believe me watch one of the old episodes.

That's easy...
They got 'Poke'money.

Get it? The Poke you get in the game, I'm sure the characters have it.

Makes sense, even though it's lame.

I'm sure in the Pokemon Centers, if healing the Pokemon is free, so is everything else.

I do find it ironic thought that we never see them in a Pokemart. Well, yeah there was that one place from the episode 'Steamboat Willies' with Dawn holding the Piplup mask, but I never really seen them do any shopping.

Dawn's a prostitute? Man, Mad TV would have some fun material with that one! I know Dawn does have some leg. Brock owning a taco cart, now that's a good one!

Anything on Dawn or Brock, it's all just a joke. It doesn't mean being mean spirited. Dawn does wear a great outfit...but you got to admit her skirt is a little short. Everytime I look at her on Serebii, man, how much shorter does it get to censorship?

maybe the stuff in the pokemart is free in the anime and htey have infinite suplly or maybe ash mom sends him some money. or maybe ash earns money when he battles a gym leader and more money when he participates in the pokemon league.

Hahaha, I actually thought of this question long ago. Seems weird to me. I always thought how one could make a living out of being a Pokemon Trainer. I mean, yes, you get reward money, but what if the people don't HAVE any money?? xD
It's a question we'll never know the answer to...

Well, I have tried this in the game, and if you run out of money, you don't have to pay the person anything if you lose...

And everyone hates you.

I think that they get money from battles, and that besides that everyone on a journey gets a monthly check from their parents, so everyone that is battling would have money. If they didn't the logical thing would be they would have to pay with items or food, or if worst comes to worst, give the winner one of their PC pokemon.
It does not matter that it is just a anime or a game it is fun and interesting to think about these things. I've been doing it for ten years and I have no intention of stopping now thank you very much

I feel the same way, Orange. I'm never too old to enjoy Pokemon or play the games. I find them very relaxing and enjoyable.

Giovanni is Ash's father, so of COURSE Delia's rich. And she steadily wires Ash and the gang a few thousand bucks a month.
And I bet Cyrus is Ash's 'uncle.'
