In Pokemon 2000 you see Misty chomping down some chicken, so i'm assuming Humans would eat pokemon because no other animals live in the world of pogeymanz.
And yeah as stated, dex entries say they eat other Pokemon and who knows. They might condone cannibalism in the world of Pokemon.

It's been mentioned that some Pokémon, like Wurmple, are food sources for others.

As mentioned before, Farfetch'd is also a delicacy. Basculin's Black 2/White 2 Dex entry also states that it's very tasty, implying that people eat it.

Animals do live in the world of... *cough*... Pogeymanz

Lol Sorry :D. Anyway, ya however they are only ever referenced, and never shown. Infact, they are generaly referenced when refering to food, perhaps because it could be seen as morbid to show the character eating pokemon.

I remember Ash, Misty, and brock (Or tracy, I forget) eating Muskrat on a stick, or something to that affect that was given to them by some lady in the woods..

Yes, I agree on this. I do not think real animals in our world live in the Pokemon world as I have not seen them in the anime, the manga or the movies. There are many carnivorous Pokemon such as Sharpedo, Arbok etc. As we all know, carnivorous animals only eat meat. Where else do we find meat in the Pokemon world, if not humans, other than Pokemon themselves?

I do remember there's one episode where ash tried to eat one of the berry on a tree. He spit it out because it taste like a raw meat. Chilan or brock( i don't remember) told him the berry needs to be cooked first.

I believe so, after all, the Pokedex says so. What's more, in the Pokemon world, animals are Pokemon right? Therefore, Ash might be eating Pokemon!

I'm guessing so...

They keep Miltanks for milk, why not keep them for meat too. Hmmm...I wonder what Tauros meat taste like?

Yeah it was a weird thing to stomach at first but it makes a lot of sense when you think about it. I think it'd be something you might find in the manga moreso than the anime (unless only hinted at) but its there.

I do like the realistic concept of it! It only makes sense after all. They clearly keep the show preeeetty PG in those terms but in pokedex entries you all mentioned make it obvious pokemon is also apart of their diet since those are the only animals around.

I think there are some fish in the first season of the anime though, so some real animals must exist, right? Not sure how many there are though.

I believe so. According to Google, Ash's Pidgeotto tried to eat his Caterpie. Team Rocket's Meowth tried to eat a Magikarp. Didn't Ash actually eat a Magikarp at one point in the anime?

I don't remember which Gen V game it was in, but some person in the game mentioned that Kyurem is said to eat Pokemon and people. x:

I don't like to think so but according to some Pokédex entries, it seems that they do.
Victreebel's Pokédex Entry from Pokémon Yellow:

"Lures prey with the sweet aroma of honey. Swallowed whole, the prey is melted in a day, bones and all."

Seedot
Nincada
Shellos (Escargot anybody?)
Shroomish
Snorunt (IT SO UGLY ;~; )

Spoink/Grumpig (Porkchops nom)
Sunkern
Togepi (it'd suck to be so cute and get eaten.)
Torchic... Eggs.
Venonat
Vileplume

hmm considering pokemon don't EVER run out in an area, does that mean they sort of reincarnate or something? revive? teleport?
assuming they reincarnate, i think it would be weird to have like a live magikarp flopping around in your stomach after you ate it cos it reincarnated. if they teleport does that mean the food in the stomach disappears? and shouldn't all pokemon know teleport in that case?(well that would make catching pokemon a pain.)
i've always wondered why when you killed a bunch of pokemons in a row you didn't leave a trail of dead bodies behind you.
if they knew how to revive,
1) how?
2) in that case why can't they use man made items like potions?
3) why am i analysing this?

just think how there is always a never ending supply of pokemon when they are constantly being killed or eaten. you'll go a long way.

PS if you're thinking along the lines of breeding, okay, how do the eggs produce and hatch so fast, and how many zubats would come out in a single "litter" if that were so?

Yeah, pretty creepy... pretty standard that this would rarely be brought up in the game; I mean, you don't want kids imagining some other animal coming along and eating their dog or cat! It's kind of the same thing, isn't it?

I think one of the definitions says that Pidgeotto hunt Rattata, so they must eat them too.

And if we're unable to find specific instances of Pokemon eating Pokemon... we could always go picking through specific trainers' Trubbish and Garbodors for cold, hard evidence.

Real live animals don't exist in the pokemon world.
Most Pokemon are based on animals. So yeah Pokemon eat other Pokemon.
Save the tastiest till last (Magikarp)

Well in the games, some Pokedex entries have already stated that Pokemon do prey on other species of Pokemon. One example I could think of would be Heatmor and Durant.



Same goes for Taillow/Swellow and Wurmple.

Quote originally posted by Wurmple's Pokedex Entry (Pokemon Sapphire):
Wurmple is targeted by Swellow as prey. This Pokémon will try to resist by pointing the spikes on its rear at the attacking predator. It will weaken the foe by leaking poison from the spikes.
Quote originally posted by Taillow's Pokedex Entry (Pokedex Entry):
Taillow is young - it has only just left its nest. As a result, it sometimes becomes lonesome and cries at night. This Pokémon feeds on Wurmple that live in forests.
Oh and I'm pretty sure the same goes for the manga too:



Yeeep, that was a wild Carnivine trying to eat a Munchlax and a Chatot.

The same could definitely be said for the anime. Pidgeotto attempted to peck at Ash's Caterpie, and Meowth tried to eat a Magikarp once.
