For those not in the know, the amount of money you pay out is determined by the highest leveled pokemon in your party, and the amount of badges you have.

Nuuuuuuh! I was hoping she'd turn rich :<

Ah well. I'm wondering if that rich dude would ever come back.

Also, since that scolipede is level 46, I'm guessing Jirachi is level 50 or something. I forget what level legendaries are in games.

rich man refusing to give money? sums up most people in the high class.

@Djoing: ...It is? I thought it was basically half of the loser's money. And generally depended on the type of trainer you were fighting.

Rich Kids, Ladies, Socialites and Gentlemen pay top dollar, bug catchers, youngsters, lasses and swimmers pay chump change.

@Shadow_Da_Hedgie: for the player it's badges instead of trainer type, so it's logical to conclude that in-game certain people have certain badges

Reply The_mad_one, December 30th, 2014, 8:16 pm

@NGamerS31: But that would mean every single swimmer has 0 or 1 badge (depending on gen), and every rich boy, even the one with just a level 19 luxray or the one with only a level 23 sudowoodo, would have like 15 badges.
In generation 3, 4 and 5, rich boys would have more badges than elite four members.

By the by, about the player losing money:
"Before Generation IV, half of the money on hand was lost and this loss was not explicitly stated to the player."
http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Black_out

Like Shadow_Da_Hedgie, I never even noticed the change. Probably because I just saved before most battles and reset the game at a loss, because half of all your money is just a stupidly high amount to lose. And blacking out never feels fair anyway when you don't know the enemy's pokémon in advance.

@The_mad_one: You're right, the base isn't entirely badges, but maybe it's just the econimical state of each person changing his view on what is a lot of money and what is little bit of money. It's like a dumbed down personality factor. I also came up with a theory that each trainer bets on a certain amount of money before the fight, so arrogance and underestimations are related as well with badges only representing a minimum payment.

Reply godmoderncommander, December 29th, 2014, 7:53 pm

@Shadow_Da_Hedgie: It's pretty much what Djoing and NGamer said. I mean take ORAS for example. If you have the game, you probably already know that you can challenge some of the trainers again and again if you go back to the routes you first met them. And as you gain more badges, you will earn more money than they have first given you. Don't believe me? Go back to the previous routes and fight the trainers again and see how much money you get out of them now.

Reply Shadow_Da_Hedgie, December 29th, 2014, 8:00 pm

@godmoderncommander: well, I knew you got more money. When I got to Mauville, I went back to grind against the Rich Kid and the Lady for cash, so I could buy all the TMs in Mauville and Slateport, and stock up on Lemonades. Half the price of Super Ptions and heal 30 HP more. Very handy. Also because I'm just training a butt-ton of Pokémon, basically anything I haven't trained before, and a few exceptions to that rule. So I trained them all up to Level 22, got the TMs and used some of them. Then proceeded to wreck Wattson's Gym with an Aron. Using only the moves Aerial Ace (because sturdy Magnemite and Magneton) and Bulldoze.

....in any case, I wasn't aware that the money improved BECAUSE of your Gym badges. I just thought they got stronger as you progressed though certain parts of the game, and, as they got stronger, so did the reward for beating them.

@Djoing: I did some reasearch. He said that his Scolipede have 46th level. Taking from his expresions during battle I think he's Adamant. I'm sure he got some EV training what makes him having about 140-150 HP. 145 Divided by 3 about 48. That's the information we need. Jirachi must done about 48 damage to defeat Scolipede with 3 hits. After even more research I founded out that 48 HP damage is his maximum ammount of damage that can be dealt by him on 20 level, but he couldn't be so lucky, BUT on level 25, 48 damage is his minimal and his level when he could defeat Scolipede with 2 hits starts from 40 so we can suggest that Jirachi is between 25 and 39 level.

Thanks for reading!
(Hopefully it isn't spoiler)

@Crash guy:
I appreciate your efforts, but I don't think I will stick to the facts of the game thát much.

I may stray from the facts for my convenience, like the anime did. But not as much as the anime did.

Reply Crash guy, December 31st, 2014, 3:02 pm

@Djoing: No matter. Doing this was preety fun and it was accualy a baby work. I did this in periods of my 2 comments (including 15 minutes break to do some comic.)
Btw for anybody that doesn't look my comic. Happy New Year!(in about 2 hours in my country. I don't know what time is in yours. Maybe 6th-8th Pm...)

@Crash guy: I think you forgot to take Special Defense into account there.

By the way, the scolipede could have been damaged from the previous battles.

Reply 1ce_k1d, January 8th, 2015, 2:47 pm

@The_mad_one: I don't think the other trainer reached Scolipede.

For NPC trainers, the payout is based in part on the level of the Pokémon in their sixth slot (persumably they put data in those back slots to have the "Pokémon on team" meter having a mirrored orientation to yours), though what you pay out for losing is based on your strongest level. Minute trivia, but felt like pointing out.
