It is obvious that Pokemon can accept being called by generic species name. Take a look at Meowth, who seems to have a better knowledge of the human world than other Pokemon. He's perfectly fine being called "Meowth", and doesn't cry for equality.

Ah, and Yamato-san's post reminded me of more research I need to do for another fic I'm writing.

Now nobody, nobody, nobody, nobody speaks my name
I'm just another blister in the mouth of shame
