Even though I do agree some people will use try to use pokemon in wars but we gotta remember three things.

1. Pokemon arent mindless drones and DO have the capability to refuse and/or defend themselves against abusive people if need be

2. We dont have as advanced technology as the anime universe such as pokeballs so capturing one and detaining it indefinitely(for most pokemon) is out of the question.

3. I'm sure using pokemon in such a way will be unanimously outlawed

How do you think the world, but more importantly YOU would react?
I'd either be freaked out, or super excited.
How would the government respond?
"Calm down guys, it was just a weather balloon."
Will people panic?
Of course. Unless, again, people get super excited an want to become a trainer or something.
Will Animal Planet have to be shut down?
They could rename it PokePlanet.
And exactly what will people say to Ken Sugamori?
Most people would blame him for creating monsters.

Pokemon becoming real could be dangerous. I assume Pokemon are much stronger than us. If they can make each other faint, what could they do to humans?

The government response you made is pretty much it...until they simply cant cover it anymore since pokemon will be everywhere.

And if you think about it, the deciding factor of which(the majority) of pokemon becoming dangerous would be the people.

Ok lemme give a scenario: Your at Lion Country Safari riding in a van through the lion habitat where you see....nothing. Then from behind a boulder comes a Luxray curiously exploring your vehicle. The Luxray would by no means attack you out of the blue(as normal lions are just interested in your hunk of metal) but it entirely depends on how drastically you react to the Luxray.

Holy crap, no. I do not want this, and if it happens, I'll panic. Like hell I'd be excited knowing something like a flying, fire breathing killing dragon is in our planet.


But thankfully it'll never happen.

Lol you guys are acting like theres gunna be some type of pokemon Jurassic era or something xD. Just because pokemon are super strong, or breathe fire, or whatever dont mean(unless it specifically entails them to or they have a good reason to) they are gunna rampage about attacking people.

Are animals we have today any different? Only difference is that in terms of brawn, pokemon have the upper hand(not really when you take mass machinery into account).

I for one wouldnt mind the advent of pokemon into our world, as long as the world doesnt freak out.

If Pokemon start to birth around the world, I think for sure that it'll never perfectly look like to the ones we know, but we'd have our own species. The natural evolution process however would need billions of years to get our animals turned into such awesome creatures.
Everyone talks then about a random nuclear apocalypse, but, guys, the animals're just gonna die, like us, they'll never turn into awesome creatures or anything.

It's hard for me to write this, as Pokemans becoming true is a childhood wish I never got rid of, but, the reality sucks, and we have to deal with it.

:X after looking at some messed up dex entries I take back what I said, and conclude that its partially a good thing pokemon arent real. Maybe if some of them were made less dark or creepy then it would be flawlessly awesome. But still, i'd still freak(in the good way) over pokemon being real, or at least my favorites.

People who don't play or watch Pokemon would totally freak out. The government, especially. At first, I bet they'd try and kill the Pokemon, thinking they were a threat to humanity. I guess the Pokemon would freak out as well because of the sudden attack, and fight back. Things would probably go cray-cray at that point.

But if the government doesn't attack, I'd like to have a Piplup.

I honestly have no clue how I'd react, nor how the government would react. But I would definately sneak a few Pokemon of my own (Pikachu, Eevee, Meowth, etc)

Wait, what? What does Animal Planet and Ken Sugimori have to do with anything?

Animal Planet will still be here. Pokemon never outright replaced real animals, not even in the games. They're still monsters, not animals with specialized traits (i.e. Mouse Pokemon or Cat Pokemon, not mouse and cat). It's one misconception that still bothers the heck out of me, why do I let it? Anyway, if anything AP will either start covering Pokemon, or The Monster Network will arise, and after a year or so of nothing but Pokemon coverage, it'll deteriorate into a reality TV network about child stars and crazy stage parents.

Ken Sugimori? What, is he the new Yuji Naka, taking credit where it doesn't belong? I believe the man you want is Satoshi Tajiri. Or at least for the first couple of gens.

And are we're talking about if Pokemon were suddenly introduced? Oh no, there'd totally be a Jurassic Park thing going. That's almost unavoidable. You can't just introduce a whole new Kingdom (because monsters certainly wouldn't fit into what we already have, likenesses or no) and expect everything to turn out hunky-dory. It'd be chaos, even if the humans start it out of fear. The Pokemon could be well meaning, but too much antagonism's going to drive them to anger, and even the smallest special type Pokemon has enough power to seriously tear stuff up.

Come on, it's no different than all the alien movies we get year after year, except it doesn't wrap itself up within 2 hours.

In order for you guys to have the ideal Pokemon world you dream of, they would've had to have existed since the beginning of time, or close to it. It takes centuries, if not eons of human interaction for animals to become accustomed to and even domesticated by humans. And remember, these aren't just animals we're talking about. It would take a long, long life alongside humans for Pokemon to realize that breathing fire in a civilized village = bad.

It's possible, however, that you could get the results you want quicker. It may only take a century or two for them to get accustomed, because the only other major difference between animals and Pokemon besides "magic powers" is sapience. They have a sense of perception, are able to emphathize as well as symphathize, demostrate free will, understand logic, and are able to use complex problem solving, all this possibly among other things. There's still, however, a barrier of both language and point of view between humans and Pokemon, like what's acceptable to a Pokemon may not be so in a human's world. The great thing is, both Pokemon and humans are able to take initiative to learn and understand each other's point of view. Your common animal will only ever see things from it's point of view, though some of that is learned (pet mice won't be so quick to run away from your hand as wild mice, for example).

Basically, Pokemon are pretty dang smart, so they'll catch on quick as to what's taboo for life among humans. It's mostly the humans I'm worried about. Pokemon are still beasts and they will fight if provoked, and possibly have a tantrum afterword, too. That's why Pokemon like the Red Gyarados were so dangerous.

Then you've also got people who really, really want humans to be on the top so badly that they're gonna oppose Pokemon just on the grounds of them being too intelligent for "animals" (or walking plants or floating inanimate objects or whatever). I'm sure some people will say it's the devil's work. But only the extremest of the extreme will ever actually believe that. There'll probably be some propaganda about them uprising and overthrowing humans just because they have the power to do it (and they do, technically, if they all did it together in one massive strike), which is really just fear mongering. The news'll focus on isolated incidents. For example, a Raichu, unable to contain his enthusiam, kills little Johnny, age 3. That Raichu is a menace to society, better string'im up by the tail. But honestly, Pokemon don't have the same values or goals as humans, they aren't in this for gain or power or material posessions, at least most of them probably aren't. Humans worrying about them stomping us all out are all probably paranoid anyway and have the worst kind of world view about others in their own race already.

It's the same argument used over and over in stories about robots, and giving robots a free will and the ability to feel emotions, blah blah blah. But wait! The robots can be misused! Hold on, what if their programming falters and they no longer obey that first law of robotics? Just one second, what if someone programs one who is in total control of all its actions, and it sees humans as inferior, creating an army to one day rise against humans? And it goes on.

I dunno. I think at the end of the day, humans fear radical changes, and especially those that they feel could cause an extinction to our race. All in all, the point is it's not going to end well. If you want Pokemon to appear out of the blue today, have at it, I guess. But you won't be alive long enough to enjoy the potential harmony humans and Pokemon could have together. Maybe your great grand kids will.

After I been on this thread for quite some time,This thread got me to question Pokemon being real alltogether...But I still stand with my theorys on pokemon being real...

-animals(or domesticated animals by humans)in the future(100 or more million years in the future)have to evolve in order to compete with humans(intelligence at the same level as humans,use tools that humans use but in a nature way like breath fire ect)...I know that evolution really don't work that way but hey its a theory after all!

-If there are other universes says the miliverse theory(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multiverse) so must worlds like ours but slightly different...There might be a earth where the humans have one hand instead of two,or the buildings might be round shape instead of square or even the animals might look different(like what I said in my first theory)...


There's a chance you know but not likely because the idea of Pokemon came from a human brain and not nature you know....


But to go along with the OP: If Pokemon just apeared out of nowhere,people would really be in disbeleve or slay them just like we would with our creatures here in this world.

I'm to lazy to answer the question but I want to put that, you'd have to find a way to mutate Animal DNA and stuff and I thought that was illegal. Of course, you never know what the government has up their sleeves.

Well...I'd truthfully be really scared. Don't get me wrong, it would be awesome, but...Pokemon are extremely dangerous in reality, we definitely wouldn't be able to "befriend" them. It would take forever for Pokemon to get used to humans, even the Pokemon lore said that the humans and Pokemon were once against each other for a long time. No, it would be a disaster.

On a sidenote, I would keep all of my toys and dolls, kids - those of you who are familiar with Banette know how they are created. O.O

Not only that, but Gengar, Dusknoir, Hypno...*shudders*...life would literally become a nightmare with those types of creatures running around.

The only way i could 'logically' see it working would be if we found the pokemon world on another planet...or they found us (seeing as space exploration is shown in an episode). The problem there would be how we would get there. I imagine eventually people or companies would start to import pokemon to sell as pets here on Earth. Its a start i guess lol.

I haven't thought of real life Pokemon in ages. Course I also thought we'd have a real life Jurassic Park and have spaceports heading to the Star Wars planets by then as well. lol

Seriously though, I don't really have an answer for your questions but if the real animals were dying out and being replaced by their Pokemon counterparts, I don't think the environment would react well to that sort of thing.

@dpb

Haha thats a nice summary of the concept

But i think its a shame(cuz its true), that ome people would probobly act violently to the introduction to something radically different. But then again, that is human nature. If pokemon did come about all of a sudden...yea it wont be pretty(for a long while at that). But then again with all the advances and understanding of the world people are realizing now, maybe theres a chance that it wont be as traumatic?

Not realy familiar(understand) with the "Jurassic Park" concept everyones talkin about but I can see a spike in alien sightings and what not.

How do you think the world, but more importantly YOU would react?
I think people in general would be afraid of them. I mean pokemon are powerful and no ordinary animals.
I on the other hand would squeal with joy and try my hardest not to glomp the nearest pokemon.

How would the government respond?
Terribly.

Will people panic?
yes

Will Animal Planet have to be shut down?
I think they would explode. and maybe stop being called animal planet and be the first to be a pokemon battle show instead.

And exactly what will people say to Ken Sugamori?
I think they would try tog et info from him because he knows all about this.

If pokemon were to become reality the government will try to cover it up till they couldn't anymore then it will cost mass hysteria even among poke fans then its gonna be followed by some tragedy like a tottler being killed by a pokemon because at first the pokemon will not be used to Humans and they will attack thus for the first couple hundred years training will probb be banned plus they will never be accepted by the religious crazies and they will be demonized at first it will b a mess the only way pokemon being real would of worked if they were around as long as man

Eh, the world's governments would probably get stuff organised after the original bewilderment of it all. Hopefully, at least, I guess it depends on how effective the Military would be against Pokémon, and just how OP legendaries would be.

I mean, I'm not sure if it's mentioned or not in the animé, but how effective would modern weaponry be against Pokémon? That's pretty much what we'd be relying on to protect us from the super-powered antagonistic ones.

Personally, I think it'd be a little more dangerous, but ultimately we'd try to continue as normal - alongside Pokémon, of course. All the games and the animé, etc. would probably be used as guidelines of some sort. I'd probably look out for meteor showers and/or auroras and try to befriend a Deoxys (so long as I don't give it reason to kill me).
I mean, it's humanoid, so it'll fit in places, highly intelligent, plus if you take into account the stats of its forms, plus the general ability to change forms, it makes it the most powerful pokémon possible - providing it reacts fast enough. All in all, what's not to like?
