Would you consider pokemon a food product? If one day, all the animals were replaced by pokemon, i.e. Cows were replaced by Milktank; in which people would normally eat cows for a mean source. So, if you did, would you still eat animal products if the regular animals turned into pokemon? Or would you start choosing alternative food products?

Like for my case, I most likely wouldn't, so maybe I'd turn into a vegan myself.

I would yeah, I eat meat now (though I was vegetarian for 6 years) so I think it would be hypocritical not to, aside from the fact that Pokemon could probably attack people a little more than a cow could - whats the difference? :P

yes XD

Pokemon ARE animals in the pokemon world, so yeah I would eat them. I wouldn't mind roast torchic with scrampled togepi for dinner or filleted Magicarp with pansage. It would be normal if pokemon existed here instead, what else would we eat for meat?

I wouldn't, and this is why - eating animals is absolutely not the same as eating Pokemon. In the games and anime, Pokemon have been shown to have intelligence similar to a human's. They communicate with one another, have the ability to reason, and some of them are even much smarter than us (Alakazam for example). They aren't animals in the sense that our animals are. The only part of them that is animal is their form and their food instincts, such as bird Pokemon eating worm Pokemon.

Would you eat a deformed person that can't communicate with you? That's what I think of Pokemon as.

Not to mention who knows what damage all those special powers will do to your digestive tract

Fair point, though I guess that takes it to another level of how intelligent our animals are considered to be. But if that was the case I don't think any of us would mind having some grilled magikarp lol :)

It's kind of necessary to have Pokemon as a meat source because how else is anyone getting their protein?

Think of our Attack EVs!

No I don't think I would. I would drink Miltank milk and stuff like that but not eat a Miltank itself. I wouldn't want my Pokemon scared of me eating them.

I'm a meat lover, but I wouldn't eat Pokemon as they're intelligent beings. I would almost feel like eating another human!

I really wonder where the meat people eat in the anime comes from. Maybe it's in vitro meat? xD http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In_vitro_meat Unless there are some regular animals hidden somewhere and that would be silly.

Well, if pokemon ate other pokemon, then yes, but whether they really do consume each other or not has not been confirmed.

But....How do the people of the Pokemon World create hamburgers without killing pokemon? Perhaps.....

I'd probably be vegan, personally..... But I eat beef, chicken, pork, and turkey IRL.

I would, because, to me, a Miltank isn't more special then a regular Cow. I eat meat and fish here, so why should I suddenly stop doing so if all the animals turned into pokemon?

Wouldn't that be Sharpedo/Garchomp Fin Soup (how does Rayquaza even resemble a shark)? I don't think eating Pokemon would be "BA", though...

Why would I want to eat an Alakazam anyway? It probably tastes like Brussels Sprouts on steroids or something...

And to be fair, animal and Pokemon intelligence is a bit debatable. There are some Pokemon that are said to be pretty stupid in their own right (I really wish that didn't sound so harsh...). I mean, just look at Rhyhorn's Sapphire PokeDex entry, one of the more derogatory ones:

Quote:
Once it starts running, it doesn't stop. Its tiny brain makes it so stupid that it can't remember why it started running in the first place.
I mean, even your typical cow and chicken can remember that much, right?

Oh gosh...I'd feel terrible eating a member of the Blaziken family, as Blaziken was my first ever Pokemon... ;_; Maybe I'd abstain from meat or something - otherwise, I'd eat it in moderation.

:cer_laugh: :cer_laugh: :cer_laugh:

Also, some Pokemon are just begging to be eaten. Case in point: Vanilluxe. What kind of Pokemon grows an enticing straw as part of evolution AKA "survival of the fittest"? That's like a sentence to get removed from the genetic population.



You see that straw? And one of the heads is drooling... *puts sprinkles on...Lick...munch munch munch...*

Kingler thermidore, I imagine, would probably be a nice delicacy for the wealthy people in the Pokemon universe. Tauros steak cooked nice and rare would also go well with a nice salad. If people wanted something more exotic, maybe a Girafarig burger or a Grumpig casserole could tide them over. (And all that Psychic energy would probably do WONDERS for your metabolism!)

This is quite shallow, but I laughed out loud thinking about that. Like, you would be eating Miltanks, in China you might be eading Houndours, some Mareep with a side of Remoroid, and if you are going fancy, perhaps even some Octillery. I am a vegetarian though, so I would just be eating Pidgeotto eggs.
