How do the unlucky people get there first pokemon?

So apparently every main character in the series was lucky to be given their first pokemon to go out and catch other pokemon. What about those who aren't given pokemon? How do they catch their first? Like the people in the begining forest who use the bug pokemon that live in that forest. Do they beat the pokemon up themselves? I did notice that there is a high chance of catching them by just throwing a pokeball at them. So you don't really need a starter pokemon.

Maybe their parents catch them one.

what if the parents don't have a pokemon either?

They get a bunch of Pokeballs and start throwing at random. One of them will eventually be caught.

Maybe the government supplies it for everyone. After all, they obviously have socialized medicine as evidenced in the fact that you visit PokeCenters to have your Pokemon healed for free.

"ill beat you with the magikarp my dad gave me"

From their parents but unlike us the chosen ones they get useless pokemon like magikarp or bibarel.

I'm just wondering what happens if someone gets their first in a high level area, surely they don't travel to the low level areas (avoiding grass and other trainers) just to go all the way back round the continent fighting them all?

On top of the free pokemon, you would get a stylish uniform to boot.

Probably by throwing a single pokeball. Which is good for about the first quarter of the games.
