Thread: What do they really eat in pokemon world.

  1. #1

    What do they really eat in pokemon world.

    This has bothered me every time i remember but, it's about the food that they eat...what is it made of?
    Because for me, it can't be a pokemon(how about the slowpoke tail story), because in pkmn world it is like a violation too eat pokemon(the slowpoke tail). Or some of them are just not edible like magikarp(from an episode which team rocket once again bought a magikarp and planned to eat it but they can't as it is full of scales through the inside..i hope i remembered it well).

    So if they are unable(maybe forbidden too) to eat pokemon, what do they really eat(aside from fruits and vegetables)?
    What could it be made of?

    Re: What do they really eat in pokemon world.

    Well if i recall correctly there was another discussion about something Pokemon related. And a member pointed out that there are real normal animals you know Mice,Dogs and Cats that don't shoot thunder or burning fire. But i really can't see any Pokemon actually eating meat it seems to violent, even the darkest of Pokemon i can't imagine them eating meat......... Unless it's cooked .......... Like bacon.

    In that episode with S.S. Anne in the anime, I recall seeing actual real-world fish, and in the episode after (where the boat sunk), Ash looked out the window and saw real-world fish swimming around (not Magikarps and the likes), which is pretty interesting. Perhaps real creatures co-exist with Pokemon in their universe?

    Re: What do they really eat in pokemon world.

    Since then, the more Pokemon were created, the less Real world animals were shown. A real Mongoose appeared in an old episode as well, but Zangoose became its equivalent. You can also suggest that Pokemon hunt other Pokemon. Since Mongoose is a Cobra rival and predator, The same relationship could be reflected between Zangoose and snake Pokemon like Arbok.

    Re: What do they really eat in pokemon world.

    Maybe they're all vegans there. I mean, if you're not allowed to eat pokemon and real animal species seem to be dwindling, they've either got cow farms that we don't ever see off in some land that we haven't been allowed to visit, or else they only eat tall grass, small trees, berries and flowers, the only things that ever grow back.

    Re: What do they really eat in pokemon world.

    Well, I'm guessing that the people are all vegans, however, Pokemon would probably have different diets. We know that some Pokemon don't eat food per-say, like Larvitar. It eats mountains so it can grow. Pokemon like Charizard and Gyarados would need meat to survive. I also find the idea that real animals co-exist doubtful. They would all be on the brink of extinction oor extinct.

    A Pokedex entry says Ekans's favorite foods are Pidgey and Spearow... and that Pidgeot hunts unsuspecting prey like Magikarp (Red/Blue Dex entries in US). Not sure about the people though...

    Re: What do they really eat in pokemon world.

    Mystery Dungeon 2 has a rescue team consisting of a Swellow and a Wurmple. If you talk to Wurmple, you'd rather feel sorry for him being stuck in that team (and talk to Swellow and the answer is obvious) :]

    Re: What do they really eat in pokemon world.

    Yeah, Team Tasty was funny in MD2.

    Actually, I'd say that there are poachers and the like in the Pokemon world, who illegally hunt Pokemon and sell their coats, eat their meat, etc. Imagine how much a Skarmory would be worth!

    Re: What do they really eat in pokemon world.

    Wurmple's Sapphire entry:
    "Wurmple is targeted by Swellow as prey. This Pokémon will try to resist by pointing the spikes on its rear at the attacking predator. It will weaken the foe by leaking poison from the spikes."

    Wurmple's Diamond entry:
    "It loves to eat leaves. If it is attacked by a Starly, it will defend itself with its spiked rear. "

    Wurmple's Platinum entry:
    "Often targeted by bird Pokémon, it desperately resists by releasing poison from its tail spikes."

    Poor guy...

    Re: What do they really eat in pokemon world.

    Yeah it seemed to me like PKMN are the normal animals of their world. I always imagined a Pidgey attacking a Magikarp or what not to eat it, I bet Pikachu gets in your house walls and chews on electrical cords. I must be hard at the Moo Moo Farm. The food must be PKMN sometimes, what else could they eat if PKMN are off limits.

    Re: What do they really eat in pokemon world.

    well pokemon eat poffins and some sort of dryfood with their type labled on the tin and they eat brocks soup they can eat pretty much wat their trainers can eat because there are no real animals in pokemon and thier trainers cant eat meat and i think they can eat other pokemon because it may kill them for ecsample:tentacool u cant eat a jelly fish and its poison type.if you where a grass type and the only food on the planet leftwas a fire type the grass type would die from eating the fire type=plus pokemon will eat berrys!!

    Re: What do they really eat in pokemon world.

    I'd like to point out to everyone that anime is not canon. Also, CharmanderRulz, your last point has no purpose at all. If it came down to that, then everything would die, because there are ecosystems. Anyway, like we've already said, Swellow eats Wurmple, as do multiple other bird types. I would imagine that Pokemon like Charizard and Salamence would eat pretty much everything that's lower on the food chain, except rock types and electric types.
