Is Pokemon Evolution Dangerous: The Lake of Rage

Felix Steven Bamford

Abstract


This paper will explore the effects of one of Team Rocket’s schemes in the games Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver using values calculated in a previous paper “Is Pokémon Evolution Dangerous?”. In these games Team Rocket use a radio signal to force Magikarp in a nearby lake to evolve into Gyarados. A model relating the Magikarp population in two lakes is deduced in order to find the total number of Magikarp evolved by Team Rocket. It is found that forcing the Magikarp to evolve would require 1.62x1021 J of energy, causing the Earth to go dark for 46.4 s.
