    Because an animal is not a pokemon. They are very different, and if there is canonical proof, i.e. that it's generally used, one would think that they would tolerate it, as they are at the very least pseudo-sentient beings.

    Another way of putting it: why would you call a elm tree Bob if everybody else called it an elm tree?
