Can anyone upload, the old man from Red, Blue or Yellow?--Clarky13 13:11, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

Coffee

Well he's a drunkard in Japanese... does he actually have coffee in Gen II/IV or is he actually just sober? TTEchidna 17:25, 24 September 2009 (UTC)

50 Pokéballs

Shouldn't it be mentioned that in the originals, he had 50 Pokéballs? I don't know where to add this. --Dr.James (questions?) 00:50, 9 October 2009 (UTC)

Pokémon Yellow

The trivia claims he only has one pokéball to start with, but that he throws two (It escapes the first one)How is this possible. -- TiTAn 17:47, 3 June 2010 (UTC)

It escapes and he doesn't catch it. --SnorlaxMonster 01:28, 17 December 2010 (UTC)

French name

It should say that he's called Vieillard in Gen I and le viel homme (with no caps) in Gen III. - unsigned comment from WenGobou (talkcontribs)

Thanks. I'll update the page. —darklordtrom 04:54, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

Japanese name

Does anyone know his Japanese name? --SnorlaxMonster 01:28, 17 December 2010 (UTC)

Yellow

the Second time I asked for the demonstration, he caught a Lvl 5 Rattata.....!!!!!!!!!--Jaison Clinton Castelino 10:19, 10 February 2012 (UTC)

He actually caught it, or tried to catch it and failed? --SnorlaxMonster 11:19, 10 February 2012 (UTC)
Caught it.......... --Jaison Clinton Castelino 13:04, 10 February 2012 (UTC)
He failed the first time. after the player had enter a pokemart and returned, the old man is back, and will catch the ratatta during the second demo. -Pokeant 04:15, 1 May 2012 (UTC)

Well...

Apparently in the original Red and Green, the old man was drunk instead of "not having his morning coffee"... well, okay. What about Japanese version of remakes? Marked +-+-+ (talk) 15:43, 5 January 2013 (UTC)
