So since the original theory of the zodiac is already full of holes it's totally acceptable to count a fox as a dog? Sure, why not.

It isn't a law of pokemon and I am now happy the new grass is a mammal and the new fire is a fox. Now people can stop making these stupid theories, especially since Pokemon is japanese, not chinese
Just because it's a Japanese game doesn't mean it can't have elements of the Chinese zodiac. There is a lot of cultural borrowing between the countries, and has been for as long as people from both areas have had contact with each other.

But yeah, I think it was more coincidence than anything, too.
