    There are some Pokédex entries on it too. I remember one where Pelipper could scoop up 40 Wishiwashi at once.

    Pokémon eat other Pokémon just as real-life animals do. This is Pidgeot's Dex entry from Red (I've left in the capitals):

    A more recent one I remember is that Gumshoos likes to eat Rattata, but they often never manage to catch one because the former is diurnal and the latter is nocturnal.

    Yeah I remember. But Gumshoos waits so long just to get Rattata to eat.

    I remember an NPC (I think he was in the Eterna City condos) talking about his wife as if she were a Pokémon. He says something along the lines of: "I met her, and she evolved into my wife, and then she evolved into the mother of my kids!"

    That just sounds really weird, and even a little bit creepy. He's basically objectifying his wife as an animal. o_O

    Why would someone do that? It would be out of someone's mind to think of someone else being an actual Pokémon. It's probably for a comparison but still I find it weird.

    I find it weird that Hypno still can’t learn Dream Eater by leveling up despite it being stated numerous times that is what it naturally does.

    I would expect it to be able to learn Dream Eater by level up. Even Munna gets to learn it by level up. If Munna can, why not Drowzee or even Hypno.

    The Ultra Ruins. Unlike the other Ultra Beasts' home, its not just some alternate dimension. It's a version of your world that underwent what appears to be a nuclear meltdown so bad the survivors had to evacuate the Earth

    But then there’s no canon record of anyone eating one. But still I like that possible allusion to KFC.

    Male Skiddo and Gogoat learning Milk Drink, when it's the females that produce milk.

    What I'd like to see happen in gen 8 is the move become a TM, learned by all breedable mammalian Pokemon (even baby Pokemon that are mammalian that evolve into Pokemon capable of breeding), as long as they are female. This would also remove the ability of male Skiddo and Gogoat to learn the move.

    Any female mammalian Pokemon that knows the move can then use it to heal any offspring they might breed regardless of what gender they are, analogous to mother mammals nursing their babies in real life.

    Munna also learns Nightmare by level-up (at level 29, I think?)

    Munna does learn Nightmare at Lv 29 by level up. It's weird to think of it as an inducer of nightmares due to its ability to eat dreams. Even Drowzee can't learn Nightmare.

    Nightmare was introduced in Gen 2, so I have no idea why GF wouldn't allow Drowzee and Hypno to learn Nightmare or Dream Eater when Gengar and Munna can.

    That makes much better sense on Gengar but it probably has been a while for them to have introduced Nightmare and just put it on Munna without having Drowzee being able to learn it as a level-up move. And even completely forgot about Drowzee not being able to learn so.

    Arceus is a Mythical, so it's entirely possible that most of the general public wouldn't even know of its existence, let alone worship it.

    They do. In Sun and Moon, they sell what is explicitly stated to be meat in the supermarkets. And you can order food with meat in it at the restaurants.

    Unless cannibalism is legal in Alola, there can only be one source where that stuff is coming from.

    Also, Wishiwashi are delicious, according to the Pokedex. Wonder how that info would be known.

    All except the main character, which is you. I wonder why the player character always seems to be the 'chosen one' in the games.

    And you can also find bags of Sinnohan Poffins at the supermarket. Probably the first time a demonym for Sinnoh has ever been specified. I think there was also some food with meat in it at the Mauville Food Court in Hoenn.

    In the plot perspective it’s so that the player has as much experience as possible to bring out the full effect of the plot. But in the practical sense it all seems coincidental.
    What? Really? I don’t remember that meat was sold in some places in Pokémon.

    I remember they had Magnemite Croquettes, which obviously don't contain Magnemite. ;)

    Of course not. Why would anyone eat a Pokémon made out of metal as food? That would be really weird if that did happen.

    Maybe they're shaped like Magnemite. Like how you can get chicken nuggets shaped like chickens. :)

    Then there's Moomoo Milk, but at least you don't have to kill a Pokémon to make it. Remember that sick Miltank in G/S/C and HG/SS who couldn't make milk because it was sick? And you had to give her some Berries?
