    The winner for the cats would be Persian. I just think Persian is awesome that way. The loser would be Meowth and I think we all agree with that.
    For the dogs, that's a bit tougher. The winner would definitly be between Lucario, Arcanine, and Houndoom. I'm favoring Lucario just because I really haven't even used the other two and because Lucario is my favorite. The loser dog would have to be Lillipup even though it's not that fair pairing it up with all the strong pokemon. I do agree that some cat/dog pokemon aren't really for battling.

          For the dogs, I think it's Snubull. I don't even see NPCs use it much.
          For the cats, I'd have to say Meowth. Again, I hardly ever see NPCs with this pokemon. I'm not even sure I've those two in my Pokedex on my White.

          I'd actually say Skitty. Seriously in all of my playthroughs of Pokemon, I've only see someone use a Skitty ONCE.

          For the dogs, hmm... perhaps Snubull. Snubull I haven't caught a glimpse of since that trainer standing around in the National Park.

              I think there's so many dog and cat Pokemon because so many Pokemon are based on some sort of animal. And the idea of having a loyal companion that can torch, cut, bite, shock, punch, kick, and all sorts of other things is pretty cool. It's a concept that works pretty well.

                Answer the current topic: Hmm, I guess there's pretty much amount of a cat/dog Pokemon since it's a common animal, in real life. Aside of that, canine-like creatures like wolf is cool. They make a perfect concept of Pokemon!

                Anyways, aren't Electabuzz (not Elekid and Electivire) and Espeon (and lots of Eeveelutions) considered as felines/canines too? Please correct me if I'm wrong ^ ^;

                Welcome to the club, Rainflower. Hope you'll have fun ^^

                Why do you think there are so many Cat and Dog Pokemon?

                I guess it's because cats and dogs are some of the most popular animals worldwide. I mean, it's a pet you see in most families nearly everywhere, and they're just very common in general. I'd say they need to hold back a bit with all the canine/feline Pokemon though, as they appear in every new generation, and they're honestly starting to get a little boring and predictable. I mean, even in generation 5 they make a Pokemon directly based off a dog, even though it's something we've seen before, and it's just... not really what I want to see.

                In my mind, this is the reason there's so many. People love having pets and having such a loyal and friendly design for a Pokémon makes it seem like the perfect companion that everyone will want to use (see Growlithe/Arcanine). Also since the market for Pokémon is primarily for kids/teenagers (very disputable I know, but this isn't the place for that and I'm talking generally!), it makes sense to have Pokémon which mimic their pets and help them relate the franchise to what they love and what they care about in real life since they'll start caring for the Pokémon in the same way. Plus they're just really easy basic concepts to base a Pokémon on anyway since you could add so much to a basic cat/dog and there's so many different breeds, so you can get a lot of diverse Pokémon coming from them.

                PLUS THEY'RE ALL JUST SO DARN CUTE n.n ♥

                  There are so many dog/cat designs because they're relatable.
                  You feel more attached to a dog or cat than you do a Pokeball or an Ice cream.
                  Good example is how I have always loved Growlithe. Always. From the moment I saw the puppy I knew I wanted one and even now I have just finished White 2 with an Arcanine on my team. Another of my favorites I have finished White 2 with is Magnezone. I spent years not caring about the Magnemite line one bit. It was only when I caught a Magnemite on a whim and raised it did I start to care about it, only when it won me a great many battles did I think it was cool.
                  It's because you can relate more with a puppy than a magnet.

                    Answer the current topic: There's so many cat/dog pokemons because cats and dogs are the most popular companion animals. So they would be a very popular design line in pokemon. It isn't everybody that like praying mantises or eels, but everybody likes cats/dogs.

                      :O How did this club elude my attention for so long?? *woof*!!

                      Name: CourageHound
                      I prefer dogs. I like their pack attitude and adore their loyalness.
                      Partner: This is a tuffie for me, a tie between Entei and Arcanine. Anyone that has been to my profile knows Aranine is on my favs list and Entei isnt...well thats cuz legendaries have their own list apart from regular pokemon. Anyway I'm going to choose entei since arcanine seems so mainstream atm.

                      Answering the current topic:

                      I dont beleive its a mystery as to why theres so many dog/cat designed pokemon. Dogs and cats are two of the worlds most popular domesticated pet and are extreemly popular amongst history and foreign cultures.

                      Its pretty easy to create a pokemon from the idea of cats and dogs anyway. Just look at Persian and Stoutland. However simple ideas can manifest themselves into the shape or form of a cat or dog easily. Example Espeon and Umbreon(Dont quote me on this cuz I remember learning this a loong time ago. Just know it will be something like that.). Umbreon's design and name came from the edge of the shadow created from the sun called an Umbra. Of which the opposite is obviously the Espa, i.e. Espeon.
                      So even tho many complex forms or ideas of pokemon design come to mind, a simple and most times effective way of presenting or creating them would be in the form of our furry little friends. Heck, when i'm drawing the basis for half my animal designs are shaped after then redesign from dogs. Its not only the convince but how fond we are of them.

                                Welcome! I apologize for not adding people to the list. I'll get a round to it soon~

                                Anyway, we could use a new topic.

                                As we all know, Gen 6 has been announced! What sorts of cats and dogs do you expect to see in Gen 6?

                                  WOAH, THIS CLUB IS STILL ALIVE.

                                  Anyway... To answer the current topic, as long as there is no ridiculous looking Pokemon in Gen 6, I'll be happy. And maybe they could shake up the types they normally use for dog and cat Pokemon. It would be cool to see another Electric-type, or maybe something we wouldn't expect, like a Poison-type. I don't know, just something... Unique.

                                    Answering Current Topic:

                                    Thinking about all the past gens we've had, i'd like to see some more, out-of-the-box canine like pokemon. I'd love to see some kind of four-legged fighting type dog or some other unique type. I would be A-OK with another normal type as long as the design was interesting/sexy enough. By that I mean something along the line of outgoing and unique fur patterns and designs that really make it stand out. *thinks* I have this awesome idea in my head, but my thoughts are too scattered to illistrate it so i'll just leave it at that.

                                    As for a feline pokemon, i'll just delegate that to a new eeveelution,

                                        Do you prefer cats or dogs: I like dogs more. Eventhough i think cats are lovely and cute, i will stay with dogs.

                                        Current topic: For dogs I would expect there to be a chihuahua (however its spelled) that would be a baby pokemon. With pink fur etc. Then it would have two evolutions. Next one would look like a Vippet (a small version of the sprinter) and final form would be a sprinter looking, very fast normal type. Also it is possible for a poodle (pudel, puudel however its spelled) type pokemon to appear. As for cats: A black panther type pokemon. Dark type of course. Another version whould be a snow leopard etc. Ice type naturaly. Or they could just make a 3form tiger evolution. Starting from the cub of course. And i think it would be fire or electric type.

                                        Woof woof

                                          Oh, hey guys! Sorry I haven't updated the user list. I promise I'll get around to it. Anyway, I agree that they should mix up the typing. I really want a water or grass dog.

                                            Yes a water or grass dog would be a nice change. I think a ghost dog would be possible also. would be a nice change from all these Dark types. :D
