Pokemon Economics

Any of you dudes remember playing pokemon as kids? Basic medical supplies like elixirs were just not sold in any stores; you had to find them in dungeons and old ruins. This suggests that they used to be produced, but aren't anymore. Maybe there was a horrible, apocalyptic economic collapse, and all the factories closed? It'd explain a lot, now that I think about it. Silph co is the only major economic power aside from the mob, and there are rows upon rows of buildings with no people in them and no doors. Perhaps most of the people starved and they just sealed up the entrances?

Pretty grim for a kid's game.

  3. When one company controls the production of an entire market, they are free to inflate the prices of goods.

    Seems like pokemon was anti-monopoly, which is probably a good thing.

  12. A good thriving economy is built around the fact that, if you go out of your way to sell good sor services that are rare to others one will prosper off the fact of human emotions. In science class today we were given a homework assignment to find your favorite games and show a way that economy plays a major part in.
