You Hooked A Pokemon by DukeStewart You Hooked A Pokemon by DukeStewart
You notice how pokemon doesn't specify the idea of meat? I mean it exists, but the animal it comes from is unidentifiable, and if it was, it wouldn't be a pokemon, but then that can't be true either, because normal animals don't exist in Pokeland!

just trying to make a point, 4kids.

Pikachu's acting weird isn't he? Is he sick, or is he turning into the incredible hulk?

There's also the fact that vegetarians would have Grass-type pokemon as an option
Lbely Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2016  Student Digital Artist
And you probably can't eat a Gyarados ether

You can't eat a Magikarp...or at least like that.

I'd have cut off the head first, then de-scale it before eating. But you do what you wish.

I remember a couple times in the anime people thought about eating pokemon (one time it was a Magickarp... Meowth broke his teeth on it...)

I love the last panel so much! XD I kinda wonder what Gyrados tastes like now too XD
LyokoGal Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2013
You know magikarp are only bones and skin as hard as armor, right? No flesh on them. I know because in one episode, Misty specifically says that.

Now this makes me wonder, do they eat meat in the pokemon world, then what is the meat made out of??
roller323 Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2012

I thought Misty once said all a Magikarp is is just scales and bones right?

Mmm, some sauteed Taurus beef with Torchic on the side would sound good right about now...:drool:

Did the crew think of eating a Magikarp when they stranded at sea? I seem to recall them thinking of ways to cook that stupid fish.

Well, ocasionally in the anime REAL animals are seen!!! (Fish swiming in ocean during the S.S. Anne episode and butterflies/ worms in the first/second episode, although, this mostly takes place in the first season due to lack of pokemom. How else do they come up with lables such as "mouse pokemon" 'cause that sure ain't a latin genus. Also, most times I think the food they eat avoids the meat side of things. Such as Onigiri (rice balls) wich are replaced by 4Kids with PB&J Sandwiches. Also when a human eats a pokemon curses are set upon them (Sinnoh Region). But there are rare cases of actually eating pokemon (the delicacy of slowpoke tails). LOL, I read too much Bulbapedia (I believe there's several articles there about this particular subject). Still, this idea of eating pokemon amuses me. I can imagine someone raising a magicarp to level twenty only to taste Gyrados flesh.... I suggest babeque.

I think as pidgeys are suppose to eat caterpies and shit, maybe humans eat miltanks?
Alkenstine Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2012

KrazyKay12 Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2012

Alkenstine Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2012

KrazyKay12 Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2012

Alkenstine Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2012

They actually do have an episode where people try to eat a Magikarp.
agosiciliano Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
they now eat non-biological meat, but in the past, they ate pokemon.
jnsucker12 Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2011
Animals exist in Pokemon though, but Pokemon is about fighting monster so they usually don't show him.
jnsucker12 Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2011
Ever seen the youtube video where Ash asks prof Oak if he's going to eat Krabby and Oak responds "No, but if I was going to I'd eat the Krabby Gary caught because it's bigger."

Prof. Oak, making Ash look like a loser and telling kids of the possibility of eating Pokemon.

As for the Youtube video, I don't know how to link stuff, so you're going to have to search for it if you want to see it.
Eevee-in-a-box Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2011
Hmm Well Misty said that Magicarp is all skin and bones.
Team Rocket tried to eat one...
ChaoticMarin Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2011  Hobbyist Artist
In the anime, regular animals exist. There are several episodes you see them, but the rule of cool states that they don't appear often because pokemon are cooler.

In the games, it's... actually not a secret at all that people eat pokemon. They totally acknowledged that fact in the Canclave library in the Gen 4 games. It's discussed only briefly though, and nobody seems to /care/ whatsoever.

In the manga, it has never been acknowledged to my knowledge.
