Okay dudes this buggs me allot. Are pokemon basicly animals? I mean in the episode where ash catches a kraby he is afraid thta pro oak would eat it, now i would assume kraby is a crab and thats why proffesor oak could eat it, The second thing ive noticed is that in a few episodes ive seen ash eating chicken, could that chicken be a pokemon? if so thats all wrong because pokemon and ppl live in harmony and they are eating them.

I’m sure Pokemon are different from normal animals. In Cerulean Gym, there are actual fish in the aquarium rather than Water Pokemon. And in the TCG, smaller animals make cameos in the illustrations of the main Pokemon Of course, Pokemon are obviously the prevalent species in a franchise titled “Pokemon”. I mean, it would make no sense to be walking in the grass and bump into a normal rat or sparrow instead of a Rattata or Spearow.

I suppose that if Pokemon were as common as they are, it would be hard not to eat them (like a Miltank or a Farfetch’d or Seaking). We find this disgusting because they are actual video game characters that we have known for a while, but think about it. In the Pokemon world, these creatures would be considered just enhanced versions of everyday farm animals by non-trainers. Unless everyone in the world was a vegetarian, which is unlikely as shown by the anime.

Yes they do eat PoKeMoN in the show. It's not talk about a lot but they do.Farfetchd is a rare PoKeMoN becuse human's ate them so much...

cryztalwing has a point. XD I think it was even pointed out in either the anime or in some description of Farfetch'd that it was considered a delicacy with the leek it carries around. o__O

Anyway, I think Pokemon were meant to resemble animals. And I guess they could be eaten by people...not sure it would be very good to show that in the anime though. XD;

Some people in the Pokemon world would eat Pokemon. To most, eating Pokemon would be disgusting. While some tribes might eat them. Just like here in real life, some tribes and cultures eat insects while most of us here would find that duisgusting.

I think eating Pokemon would be the equivalent to americans eating dogs or cats, we find it disgusting because these animals are domesticated pets, but some places it happens.

On a separate note, which pokemon would be the most tastey?

I'd say chargrilled charmander

They would have to have normal animals in the Pokemon world. Otherwise, why would some Pokemon be classified as "electric mouse Pokemon" or "fang snake pokemon" or "bat pokemon"? If normal animals didn't exist, they probably wouldn't know what a mouse, snake or bat was.

I remember one Johto episode were jessie was starving to death and wanted to turn pikachu into a Pikaburger, instead of capturing it and giveing it to the boss...

hm...i think pokemon are animals. I never saw an animal in the anime/manga/game.
Also they get milk for miltanks that means miltanks are animals...

However they don't really talk 'bout them there are some clues..
Like Misty's gym , of on board of the SS.Anne , there are fish

But , I heard ones that May was very hungry and then she said ;
'I could eat a whole Tauros'
But I heard Brock also saying ;
'I swim like a duck'

Pokemon are not animals, they are some kind of others

Well, I think any sort of farming would be impossible (the MooMoo farm is fine because it just produces milk and I'd imagine the Miltank would be fine with that, but they'd hardly accept being slaughtered). However, as I see it, many Pokémon hunt each other in the wild and find it perfectly normal, so there is no real reason why humans wouldn't sometimes go out and hunt wild Pokémon. Of course the Pokémon could defend themselves, but if they can't, that's life and they quite simply got caught by a predator and were victims of natural selection. Too bad for them.

On the other hand, since there do seem to be some animals in the Pokémon world, I think there would exist normal cow farms, etc.

I think that eating certain pokemon would be ok, just like people eating animals. Like eating Farfetch'd would be ok, if they weren't an endangered species. And James tried to eat a Magikarp raw when they were lost on the ocean.

Pokemon eat each other, just like animals. Like how snorlax tried to eat a goldeen(I think), and -to a lesser extent- how heracross tries to eat bulbasaur. And what do you think scyther do...

pokemon are more intelligent than animals.. Maybe they're of a different species

actually pokemon are eaten if you look at a book in sinnoh it says "pick clean the bones of the pokemon" which made me wonder, if they ate legendary pokemon would it end pokemon world hunger???

True that.

Although, kinda sad...since I like Farfetch'd. :/
