    I thought it was a universal law that you're supposed to steal Kenya? :>

    I certainly did.

    Many times.

    Because I'm a monster.

      Only if I wanted to quickly evolve it into Fearow for my Pokedex.
      I rarely use Fly slaves nowadays, I'd rather hatch my own and trade it over if I wish to train one myself.

      I managed to deliver the message, and returned Kenya in the process.

          No, I delivered the message but that fat guy stole Kenya from me. He never returned Kenya. THIEF!

          I can't remember if I've did that quest in HeartGold, but in the original Gold, I would steal it all the time, but most of the time, I'd return Kenya to it's owner. I have no use for a Spearow of Fearow and didn't know I could just attach the letter to another Pokemon and give that Pokemon to him instead.

              I probably knew about Kenya way back when I played Silver and Gold all those years ago, but I have no idea what I did with it. I probably took it and boxed it, but then again I could have been nice enough to actually deliver it. I really don't know. Now though, I'd probably just keep it - I've never trained a Spearow before

                  Hmm, forgot all about Kenya. I liked it, so I kept it most of the time. Honestly, if they didn't want me stealing their pokemon, they should have just given me the letter by itself.

                    I never stole Kenya, because I never knew this side-quest existed in HG/SS up until now. I doubt the reason to steal Kenya may be because it's in top percentage of a normal Spearow like Joey's Rattata.

                      Honestly, I'm surprised most people didn't know about Kenya (although Gamefreak could've made it a bit more obvious by having the guard say something before leaving). I personally stole Kenya and trained it, because it actually trained pretty easily since it was considered traded by the game and gained EXP a lot faster. I literally just stuck the letter on a Caterpie and gave it to the guy and still kept Kenya.

                      It surprises me that most people didn't raise it. I did and it was super helpful during the Elite 4 against Bruno. It's really not that bad tbh.

                        I gave Kenya back. I'm not really a fan of Spearow and its evolution.

                        I didn't know it exists. .__. But I probably wouldn't have on my first playthrough on Soulsilver, considering I used Pidgeot as my Flying-type.

                        I kept it and used it as my fly slave :D I just realized that delivering the mail isn't worth it and the cute bird is so much more useful just to keep!

                          If it gets the bonus experience, yes.

                            I kept it, because of the pokemon lottery. I like to collect pokemon with multiple IDs. He doesn't seem to really care that you took it, so long as he gets the letter, though.

                            You know who does care that you stole their pokemon? The guy who gives you a Shuckle. Now this is a real ethics test in a pokemon game.

                              I remember actually doing this quest in Soul Silver and actually delivering the letter... wether I kept or returned it is a mystery to me, as I don't remember.

                              I remember doing the original quest in Gold, Silver (and Crystal too). I never stole Kenya though because I'm a kindhearted person, and stealing is wrong. I can't remember though if I did the quest in HeartGold.

                                Nope, have passed his owner without even bothering to stop at him. I think Kenya is happy with him

                                  In Silver, I definitely stole it. In HG, I forgot that little side quest was even a thing.

                                    You know, you can attach the mail to a different pokemon, like something useless, and give that pokemon. I did that because I grew rather attached to Kenya.
