    Alot of your assumptions on the way the economy would react rest on the assumption that that 0.2% of the population use their wealth to impact the supply of items in the game. Their impact is limited to how much they could physically hold in order to manipulate supply.

    Me: oh. He forgot payday.
    Austen: PAYDAY BRO..!!!
    me: ayeeee
    (The only reason I knew about getting rich from payday was getting really bored playing Pokémon over and over again, and searched up cheats. ._. Yep.)

    "How do they make that much Money?"
    ...i-it's Pokémon... They are literally mentioned as 'magical creatures' in the in-game history books. And about the outcomes, the pokemon world doesn't quite work like our... I mean cool video but certain Pokémons can literally make food and drinks, not only money.
    Poverty is not an issue and while certain things are mentioned as reminders for people of the real world (like Grimer and Koffing representing pollution). This theory is a bit stretched because you apply real world's rules to a fictional place which starts off saying "Hey, look here, this dog can breath fire."
    And while you do mention certain Pokémon world rules, you then proceed to ignore others for the sake of the theory. Which is not very sciency of you.
    But i still liked the hypotesis.

    3:57 Wait, there are some problems with your numbers here. First off, it's a level 100 Meoth! Do you know how long that takes to level a Meoth to 100? Second, Payday only works on TRAINERS that give prize money. This excludes wild pokemon battles. Illuminate Active only works on wild pokemon encounters, not trainers. Also, depending on what game you're playing, (I'll be talking about Ruby and Saphire) trainers either don't want to battle again after you beat them or they are on a timer so you have to wait for them and bounce between different trainers. The trainers could be cities apart so you will be spending more than 1 second reaching them.
    You can use this method on trainers, gym leaders, elite four, and battle towers, anything that involves trainers, and you'll get a nice chunk of money. I actually use to use it a lot when fighting the "Rich Boys" or "Rich Girls" as they in general give you more money than other trainers and using Payday and an Amulet with them would give you even more money.
    I don't know if they've changed this rule in Alpha, Omega, or Ultra Sun and Moon but I'm going to wager they didn't.
