    A good pair of boots, a decent sized sharp knife and a satellite phone (there are loads of places in urban areas in the UK etc where there's no signal- there is no way a mobile phone is going to enable you to phone anyone if you're stranded on an uninhabited island in the middle of nowhere. )
    This ^

    Assuming you aren't allowed a satellite phone though for the purposes of being 'stranded', I'd take a water bottle in its place (in fact, this would be the most important thing to have imo).

    I had an interesting conversation with an ex-forces colleague during a very long, boring and uneventful shift a while back about what you would grab if your ship was sinking and you could swim to an island. He was speaking about grabbing wellies! Dual purpose of protecting your feet and (apparently ) make fantastic water containers.

    Oh wow, I've never considered that before! I guess that covers the footwear and water bottle in one then... perhaps some water purification tablets or a fire-starter in place of the water bottle/satellite phone then?

    Lots of potassium permanganate. :yep: Good for purifying water, gets rid of cholera in water, can make it up into antiseptic/antifungal solutions, good for sores and stuff. I've had the "three things from a sinking ship" conversation quite a few times.

    Apparently a large Knife Will allié me to obtain all the natural resources on an Island. Original Pokémon have completely different workings than the new ones which is actually more fun.
