Do you think animals live in the pokemon world?

  1. Yes, they could probably live with them.

  2. No, that's why they never make appearances.

    Animals can be your friends too. What makes pokemon any different besides the fact that they're more powerful?

    Creationism also has yet to be proven

    Evolution have been observed. Not the big changes like fishes getting lungs and and legs, but small changes like the change of color when environment changes. One example used a lot in Swedish schools is a moth/butterfly (don't remember which) that was either black or white, it spent a lot of time sitting on birches (white trees) and the black ones were very rare, then something happened and there were a lot of soot that made the trees black, the amount of black insects increased a lot and the white version was almost extinct, then something happened and the birches got white again and it went back to normal. It's not that the white ones were eaten more, meaning that more black ones survived and that's why the black ones were more usual, the change was too big for it to be only that. The positive color had to be inherited or that change wouldn't had been that major (do note that the total amount of individuals of the specie wasn't affected greatly when the black version got common). Another example that I don't remember as detailed is another insect, I think a type of grasshopper that "migrated" to a "new" island. The grasshoppers made a sound with their wings for some purpose and a specie on that "new" island that was not on their previous inhabitant could locate and eat them based on the sound, a few generations later, the shape of the wings had been altered to not make that sound, for almost all individuals!

    I think the most plausible explanation would be that most animals have been out-competed by pokemon, but there are a few animals such as underwater filter-feeders that have a niche in their environment that isn't challenged by any pokemon species.

    There have been many non-pokémon animals in the anime, examples are every trainer, most of the spectators that come to watch battles, all background characters.

    But they fall under Human, so it really only adds one.

    Human is animal and we are not counting species.

    What do Pokemon do when they get to a certain level?

    LOLOLOL, to me it looks like someone can't face the fact that every sensible person accepted it as the most reasonable explenation.....and is trying to argue about it in an unrelated thread.

    I agree. I think Pokemon were originally suppost to be a special breed of animals. Plus, why else would we see people eating meat? I don't think anyone would want to eat a Taurosburger in the Anime.

    Maybe they made a mistake by introducing the fish in that one episode of Pokémon, but because of that you pretty much have to assume that animals do exist in the Pokémon world. If not, you'd have to at least acknowledge a single animal exists. (the fish)

    Pokemon are special breed animals that have powers beyond belief ! So there are animals in pokemon,they're the pokemon.

    Well it was mentioned, so I guess technically yes :D

    The food chain would be interesting, like Ariados eating birds.

    I would hope that there are. I can't stand to think what they use for meat :(

    Why not? Why would it be any different from eating a cow?

    If there were, they are kept in isolation because any attacks from a Pokemon will result in its death.

    It is common knowledge that there are non-Pokemon animals in the Pokemon world, as revealed through various Pokedex entries and anime episodes.

    The thing is, if pokemon are the animals, then doesn't that mean they ate pokemon?
    The series is supposed to portray friendship between humans and pokemon but
    how is that when we're eating them too?
