The Pokemon Entree

March 14, 2009

We all know that we “gotta catch them all”, but when we take a break from the capturing and forcing those adorable creatures to fight each other (which for whatever reason seems to be the basis of the social economy of this world) we have to stop and think of something. In this land of hundreds of different Pokemon, which are the unlucky few that are used for food?

Now before anyone goes “that’s sick!” or “you’re thinking way too much about this.!” Come on now anyone who has played/watched Pokemon has thought about it. You do not see “normal” animals in any areas and  in a place where even some of the plants are sentient, figuring out what to eat I would imagine is a tough decision.  Clearly some are more “suited” for consumption over others.  You definitely  would pick the Tauros over the Geodude to eat, but there is still a line of what do you think is meant for  food?

They do acknowledge that Pokemon are used for food, If you read the pokedex entrees about Lapris and Tauros it mentions how they are endangered because they have been hunted. I also have a video clip from the cartoon that touches on the eating of Pokemon.

Clearly Prof. Oak has no qualms with eating the Pokemon despite the fact that it’s a living creature and also, what exactly is Brock’s Bacon Double Cheeseburger going to be made out of?!

Lastly I have a list I compiled of what Pokemon I think they use for food.

Squirtle?
Pidgey (Pigeon?)
Oddish (Vegetable or meat?)
Psyduck
Machop (Rock or Meat?)
BellSprout (Vegitarian or Murder?)
Tentacool (Sushi?)
Slowpoke
Farfetch’d (Premerie Food)
Doduo
Shelder
Krabby
Exeggcute
Lickitung
Golddeen
Tauros
Magikarp
Lapras (hunted to near extinction)
Dratini
Chinchou
Togepi (veal omlette)
Qwilfish
Swinub
Remoraid
Mantine
Stantler
Milktank
Treecko
Torchic
Carvanha
Barboach
Corphish
Feebas
Relicanth
Starly
Buneary
Chatot
So I ask what you guys think? How do you think they deal with the Pokemon food situation? What pokemon do you think they eat the most?

Do vegetarians have a huge moral problem with eating Bellsprouts and Oddishs?

Gotta Eat Them All!
