    Hey MatPat, since you have a past in theater, have you ever played the game "Foul Play"? It's an indie title that takes place on a stage in an alternate universe Victorian England, where demons are attacking. The story is that a demon hunter and his apprentice are performing a play about their adventures, and all the enemies are actors, with some really funny solutions for special effects. It also has a really clever twist at the end.

    Sorry MatPat, but I have to disagree.
    First of all, the lemonade isn't that expensive- if you convert the PokeDollars to U.S. dollars. And I mean convert everything. Example:
    350 P= $3.50 U.S.D.
    Therefore, things cost less.
    In Ultra Moon, I have over a million PokeDollars which I convert into:
    1,00,000,000 P= $100,000.00.
    Besides, in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon you get 13,000 P each from the Elite Four. Then the Challenger gives you 11,000 P.
    Not bad, I'd say, and since we're going IN Pokemon, we only have to worry about the value in Pokemon, not the real world.
    Plus you have Pokemon.

    The Pokémon society seems largely socialistic with small pockets of capitalism here and there. I mean there’s a Pokémon center that heals your Pokémon for FREE! The government has created a free healthcare service for their citizens. Also there’s a strong case to make that their entire means of production is autonomous and done by robots allowing the citizens the leisure to go on such journeys without need to worry about financial risks!

    Crazy idea: but have they ever mentioned that there is a mayor or president for a pokemon region? because if we assume the elite 4 are the political force of their region then pokemon would be a democracy..sure if your the 1 in a million who can actually beat the elite 4 in a realistic fashon, then if you become the master or champion, that means you have total power over the region your in. But what if to pass a law in this universe it must pass to the elite 4 who must agree to the terms you are setting in or maybe the gym leaders are the senetors who are actually setting the laws, which means political confilct would happen more offen in the pokemon universe since someone could mentally unhindged with a strong team of poekmon could theoretacly become a leader to the region and to think nobody could vote because its not actually voted if not whos stronger will pokemon just got a whole lot more intresting..but hey thats just a theory...a politically charged game theory

    Oh hey, i know that this doesn't have to do with the Poke'dollars, but I've noticed something;
    In pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, a lot of pokemon (more specifically, the legendaries, Ultra Beasts and Mythical) were actually WEAKER than in the previous game, SUn and Moon. I mean, look at the National Pokedex (Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon Edition) - You'll find that Necrozma in THIS game, is actually weaker than the Necrozma in S/M! And not only that, but look at Dawn WIngs and Dusk Mane Necrozma - their stats are actually WORSE than S/M Necrozma! (Except for the ATTACK stat for Dusk Mane, but that's besides the point). In addition, not only is Necrozma weaker, but the legendaries in Alola have also become weaker! In fact, I would dare to say that, THEORY TIME:

    According to the lore provided by Game Freak, Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon take place in an alternate timeline, where Necrozma is indeed a pokemon from another dimension. Not only that, but we also know that instead of giving OFF light, it FEEDS off it, hence why it can fuse with the Alola Legendaries, Solgaleo and Lunala. Now, it got me thinking, "Why would Necrozma be weaker in THIS game, while the previous Necrozma was stronger?" Well, I have a theory about that.
    You see, it was believed to have been the response to Ultra Beasts invading Alola long ago, being created by the Tapu and the Legendary pokemon. When the Ultra Beasts vanished, Necrozma was put to a rest. However, in US/UM, Necrozma was ALREADY it's own pokemon, giving a whole civilization energy and light to live in their world. Now, the reason why I believe that the legendaries (Necrozma, specifically) are weaker is because of one thing - the ONE THING that allows players to enter Ultra Megapolis and Ultra Space in the first place - the Ultra Wormholes.
    You see, I don't think that they are simply just doors to another world - rather, I believe that they are actually BLACK HOLES! You see, black holes are the result of a giant star dying and collapsing in-on itself, creating a place in the universe with enough gravity to absorb light. I'm not saying Necrozma is a black hole, rather, as I said before, the Ultra Wormholes are the black holes, draining the light (and everything else unforutnate enough to be too close) around it. Not only that, but the fact we use these Ultra Wormholes so often is what I believe to be the reason as to WHY the Legendaries are so weak - their strength has been drained by the Ultra Wormholes - or should I say,
    But hey, that's just a theory, a GAME THEORY!
    P.S. Hey Matt Patt, if you find this theory interesting, you can ,make a video on it, and maybe even give a better explanation as to WHY the Legendaries and Ultra Beasts have become weaker due to the black holes. It's just my theory behind it, but GIVE IT A WHIRL!

    Hey I really think that you should do a game theory about the game FEZ. Not only is it really underrated, it has 2 really strange and confusing ending. Also I think the "Heart Puzzles" (Either the Monolith Puzzle or the one with the FEZ Alphabet) in FEZ might be the inspiration for the Cube in Fortnite (I could be wrong though)

    I just pulled out Pokemon Leaf Green and plugged in my older brother's Gameboy. It's been way too many years since I started my "Pokemon adventure" with breaks of many, many months, or even a year or two. It's likely been a good 6 years since I started, and I'd like to have finished a pokemon game other than X, which wasn't exactly the most difficult, especially since I used the exp share, by the time my brother returns home and to modern civilization in two years. (He's doing this thing in El Salvador.)
    Many a time over the years has he threatened to delete my file on there(As it, and 95% of all other Nintendo games in our household, is his) as I played it incredibly infrequently.
    Oh, this brings back memories...

    Well it could be that in the pokemon universe there is a certain medication that lets humans not need any sort of food or water that children get the moment they are atleast 6 months old. Keep in mind, HUMANS not pokemon. Which is probably why only pokemon drink the beverages and eat food,but now you're wondering, "why do people still eat?." Well, why do people still smoke even though its not necessary? And so, if you were to get teleported it might be worse. But to be born in it would be a cake walk to the top
