So, me and my friends have had this long debate on if you eat pokemon in the game/series. Well, you don't see any other real life animal. And I don't THINK everyone in the pokemon world is a vegetarian.

Plus there are items like slowpoke tail, paras mushrooms, etc.

Eating pokemon seems reasonable, doesn't it? But wouldn't it be harder for people to kill pokemon since they could be useful in so many other ways? I think it'd be different from this world since the pokemon world seems to have a greater interdependence with pokemon.

But personally, I think they totally eat pokemon and just never mention it to prevent kids playing their game from knowing that their best friend evar is also a delicacy. Mmmm tauros burgers.

Some Pokemon I wouldn't mind eating; others it just sounds so heartless.
I wouldn't mind eating Tentacool, though.
Mmm. TentaCalamari.

No problem.

There's some sort of weird religious scripture that you can read in the library in the Diamond/Pearl/Platinum games that details humans eating Pokemon from the sea. There's also the fact that Sweet Honey (possibly produced by Combees, Vespiquen, or Beedrills) and things like Moo-Moo Milk (made by Miltanks?) that are consumed by Pokemon and humans alike, meaning that they do, at least, eat things produced by Pokemon.

I know that they eat fish-like pokemon such as Magikarp.
They might also eat Parasect's mushrooms, but I'm un-sure.
They also drink milk from Miltank.

Hn. I haven't given the subject too much thought yet - as it brings to mind the subject of PokeMon sentience.

Most PokeMon species appear to be sentient, intelligent beings - but at the same time, they live much in the manner of wild animals, complete with their own ecosystems - and it's obvious some of them eat each other - and it's all organic and natural and in tune with the great circles of the cosmos, and I doubt they bother to think 'Hay wait a minute I'm eating another sentient creature with its own hopes and dreams!'. They just do what nature tells them to do to survive.

When you think about it this way, it may only seem that if PokeMon aren't bothered by it, humans probably aren't too. I'm pretty sure that within in-universe context, there are a lot of people who question the sentience of PokeMon, thinking of them as just animals - and on the other side you have psychotic PETA-types who seek to abolish the consumption of PokeMon, who view PokeMon training as barbaric abuse of creatures that should live wild and free.... you know. The sort of people who "won't even drive through towns with 'Ham' in their names", as Bill Bailey so eloquently puts it.

It's also quite possible only a few species are consumed by humans as food and raised specifically for it in farms - because there are regulations related to the sentience level of certain critters. But hell if I know. (shrugs)

Combusken drumsticks, Oddish-and-Grotle salad, and grilled Tauros, all made on the Torkoal grill!

I can just see a Torkoal-shaped grill out there.

Feraligatorade.

...The next time I get a bottle of Gatorade, I'm going to write that with a sharpie and draw a little chibi Feraligatr on it.


I would eat some of the pogeys that aren't really portrayed as "smart," like Tentacruel, Crawdaunt, and Magikarp (even though I don't eat seafood IRL.) Taurosburgers would be A-OK.

I'd have a hard time eating a Pikachu or something, though. Cute pogeys would be hard to eat, and so would human-like ones.

Edit: Also, regarding Pokémon products, Tropius's dex entries state that people eat the fruit on its neck.

I haven't really give this much thought either. I actually didn't think about it until now.

I guess they'd have to eat some of the Pokemon.
It's kind of like reality, except Pokemon are bit smarter than your average animal.
Huh... That's a good thing to think about in a new light.

Yeah, I could see eating pokemon. It wouldn't be too far off from real life, some people keep chickens and pigs as pets even though we eat them.

Actually, I've noticed that Pokemon is getting a bit more... eehh, "kid friendly". Pokedex entries from Red and Blue can be a bit more graphic than the newer versions. Pidgeot's entry mentions it eats fish Pokemon like Magikarp. I could assume that pokemon that are strictly carnivorous would eat other Pokemon. As for people... I guess you could if you really wanted to. It'd be like eating a Dolphin or a Monkey... just another intelligent creature =/ Whatever floats your boat.

BUT, I do remember watching one of the old Pokemon episodes years ago [Where ash goes to battle Misty at Cerulean City] and I saw fish in the tank in the background. FISH, not Magikarp, not Tentacool, not Psyduck, even, but just regular looking fish.
Even though it's not in-game, I do think that there exists normal animals in the Pokemon world as well. It never shows them [there may be a reference that I just can't remember], but then again, who cares about seeing a cow or rat or pidgeon? I want Pokemon!

Anyway, just my take on it ^_^.gif

Yeah. I've seen Ash and friends eating hamburgers and fried "chicken". Are they really Tauros/Miltank and Farfetch'd? It always baffles me. confused.gif

I also once saw Misty getting attacked by what looked like droves of mosquitos or gnats. Way too tiny to be a Pokemon, but giving credibility to the theory that there are real-life animals in the Pokemon world.

In the animeverse it's reasonable to assume that there are some non-Pokémon life forms here and there, which are used for food, based on the evidence of the fishtank, chicken leg, etc.

In the gameverse, they eat products from Pokémon, e.g. Moomoo milk, but as far as meat goes I've always liked to think that people in the Pokémon world use soy/veggie-based substitutes and just have less dependence on it than we do. Maybe they get their protein sources from other places and cultures around the Pokéworld have developed respecting the Pokémon as near-equals (except for that whole capturing and battling them part, but that in itself is a debate) and would see killing them for food as a barbaric act.
