I was re-reading the TVTropes page on Pokmeon XY, and they mentioned that if you can't pay for a taxi cab's service, the drivers attack you.

Being the gigantic idiot that I am, I decided to try it. I saved the game, and bought 600+ Full Restores. Then, went out and started to scam taxi drivers.

Driver Wayne:

"Hey, just a minute there, friend! You don't even have enough for the fare?!"
"Riding without paying is a crime! I'll run you down, you little thief!"

My face: D:

After short battle with a lv. 55 Krokorok, he states, "I feel like I just got ran over....Time to back things up a bit!"

Then, "My Pokemon came to a screeching halt....idling is just the same as stopping, really..."
"Thanks a lot, pal."

The screen then goes from black to wherever your destination was. ._. Really guilt-tripped me there...

Then, Driver Wheeler

"Hey, just a minute there, friend! You don't even have enough for the fare?!"
"This is just what i was waiting for! This'll wake me up!"

And after a battle with a lv.33 Sandile...

"Ha ha ha! You're a strong one, aren't ya? I like trainers who aren't afraid to win!"

"That was good! Let's do it again sometime! But bring some money and pay your fare!"
"Thanks a lot, pal."

....Okay, that guy was surprisingly cool about it. XD

Next, Driver Clarence

"Hey, just a minute there, friend! You don't even have enough for the fare?!"
"Why, you! You won't get away with this! That money is my life! My rent! My dinner!"

After a battle with a lv. 33 Sandile...

"Ahh, man! There goes all my money..."

"Fine! Whatever! I get it! Just get outta my taxi!
"Thanks a lot, pal."

......;~; *sobs*


Driver Hackney:

"Hey, just a minute there, friend! You don't even have enough for the fare?!"
"You won't be getting away with this! You little sneak! I'll teach you a lesson!"

After a battle with a lv. 33 Sandile (yet again...)

"Ugh...Argh...Gah..."

"Tsk...Fine. I mean, great. Thanks for riding with me."
"Thanks a lot, pal."

....*curls up and cries*

Driver Hansom:

"Hey, just a minute there, friend! You don't even have enough for the fare?!"
"You'd better not be getting cocky, kid. Otherwise your Pokemon'll pay for this!"

After ANOTHER lv 33 Sandile....(I'm getting sick of themmm)

"How'd I go and lose the match like that? Nothing's goin' right for me today!"

"I'm still proud of myself. G'wan, get outta here. Forget the fare!"
"Thanks a lot, pal."

....:/

I'm going to try and find more taxi cab drivers to pick on, but these are the ones that have appeared for me atm. XD

I'm seriously feeling as if I should be arrested by Officer Jenny by now...:'(

And, another:

Diver Weaver:

"Hey, just a minute there, friend! You don't even have enough for the fare?!"
"I come out to earn a living, don't I? So why you gotta tax me like this?"

After a lv 55 Krokoroc...

"Ain't you a strong one? Too strong for me!"

"Now I won't even have a copper to send back to my family in Hoenn..."
"Thanks a lot, pal."

.......*sobs quietly*

Driver Cabot:

"Hey, just a minute there, friend! You don't even have enough for the fare?!"
"Watch out, kid, we Drivers are strong! Driving these roads takes real strength!

lv 55 Krokoroc

"I often get some rowdy passengers, so I've always got to be prepared!"

"You're strong. You wanna join us? You can make bank if you work hard!"
"Thanks a lot, pal."

Driver Shaffer:

"Hey, just a minute there, friend! You don't even have enough for the fare?!"
"I won't go easy just because you're a child! Feel my Judgement, thief!"

After a lv 55 Krokoroc....

"You neatly scrapped my Pokemon!"

"I'm begging you, child. Don't keep doing these kinds of illicit things."
"Thanks a lot, pal."

....I think I just felt my heart shatter. ;~;

... D:

As long as you don't do it often, I am sure it is fine. XD

Maybe I should do it sometime...

I'm pretty sure there are more drivers, I just have to hope that the game makes me encounter them. XD

But I still take cabs in Lumiose, no matter if I have the money needed or not. :3

I can see why they are desperately battling for their money. XD Too many taxi drivers... I thought there were about 6 of them in Lumiose. :P (I get easily lost in that city, so I assume they are just the same taxi drivers that I keep on encountering)

Well, if you scam take the same taxi over and over again, the drivers will be different every time~

...Well, most of the time. I get a lot of repeats, too...XD

What if they are frustrated to the point if they called Officer Jenny after you? :o

Or, you just make them go bankrupt.

Well....

...shoot. XD But then again, I am the champion, and I did save Kalos and their own lives from being completely annhilated, so...

They should be giving me free taxi rides, darn it! XD

You did the near impossible, but free taxi rides are a big no-no in the game apparently. XD

If there were free taxi rides, and you used the free taxi rides daily, then, you wouldn't get any exercise! D:

But I have to walk to the cabs, and I have to walk around inside the stores...XD And then out of the stores to the nearest taxi cab~

Yeah...free taxi rides. XD It reminds me of what Game Freak implemented in FR/LG as an anti-hack measure. If you cheated to get a MysticTicket/AuroraTicket, the sailor would say: "By the way, if you like this game: Buy it or die."  Shocked

If you talk to Alexa, it is kind of like instant access to a location because she "shows you the way".

If more people hear of taxi drivers attacking their passengers and sailors wanting to kill their passengers too, then no one will want to use transportation vehicles.

Passengers are a target of Gamefreak.

Yes, yes they are. XD

I am glad that I can help out. ^^ Also, when you speak to her and have her be your "tour guide", it raises your popularity rank in Lumiose a little bit, I believe.

XD It's been awhile since there has been a Legend of Zelda reference. I haven't been looking into the series much.
