I didn't even know about this until it was too late. I kept Kenya for the ID and gave the guy a useless Pokemon with the mail. After all, the game doesn't care if you keep Kenya or not.

Yeah, I stole Kenya. I didn't want to give it back because.. well.. I just didn't want to! All I did was give the mail to the person and I got off without giving Kenya back! I think the game wants you to keep Kenya.. x3

Haha, I always felt terrible about it in the back of my mind but I always stole Kenya. The first time I totally forgot I was even supposed to deliver the letter, so I just kept him and leveled him up. Every other time I've taken him I just don't care about delivering the letter enough to actually deliver it, so it's safe to say Kenya has pretty much never delivered the letter and has always become one of my team Pokemon. ;3

At times I get nosy and read the message, then I give the Spearow to the trainer.

Other times I read the message, and I box the Spearow in the PC...and forgot about it until the end of the game. xD oops.

I'm too honest of a person and I'd feel horrible stealing something even if it's in a video game (assuming it's not required to further the progress of the game). So, no, I didn't steal it and I delivered the message. I'd be devastated if someone stole my Pokemon. lol

I... actually never took it from the guard. I didn't even I was able to do that, to be honest. xD If I did, then I probably would've put it in my PC box and forget about it later on, just like most of you. Either that, or if I ended up finding this Pokémon to be useful, then maybe I would have kept it on my team and trained it.

I most definitely did not steal Kenya, but I did take a part of the quest in delivering it.. I also didn't train it at all since nothing good would have happened out of it.

No, I didn't.
I don't think Spearow is a good Pokémon so I delivered it.
Why are you reading. :v

I always forget this sidequest, so no, I never stole Kenya. :( I probably wouldn't anyway. I can get my own Spearow and I'd feel really bad if I didn't deliver the letter and what not.
go create your perfect future

I did in the old versions because I thought it was a gift Pokemon, since I was the kind of gameplayer that kept pressing A, so I did not notice his sidequest.

In Gen IV, I get to learn about IVs and other battle related knowledge, considering Kenya does not have a set of excellent IVs, not Jolly natured and so I gave it to that man.
Hopefully he did not eat Kenya.

Nah. I felt pretty bad for even taking it so I delivered the mail ASAP. Feels good, man.

Ohh no, I should be the meaniest of the lots.

I took Kenya, delete the mail, then released it in my Gold/ Crystal xDDD

I forgot if I release or returned it in HGSS though, but I like to be mean to NPCs xD

I never knew about it until recently but for my most recent play through, yes I did.

I only found out about it recently, which kinda amazed me. Even though it's a pretty common Pokémon; I still took it. I even used it on my team on my first playthrough of Soul Silver, and it proved to be a great companion. :D
