Talk:Animals in the Pokémon world
Hasn't anyone ever noticed that...
...the times when a this-world animal is depicted somehow in the Pokémon universe, it is for a good reason? For example, the Dex entries (which are all listed in the game) could be intentional, giving us (as players) a means of reference, as we, for example, can't really compare with the thickness of a Hippowdon's hide (that was only an example). Many of the usages of our animals alongside Pokémon are used because there is no Pokémon equivalent of the animal discovered yet. Some problems might have just been accidental in addition. These are all just ideas that I've been working on. They are not by any means official, just my 2 Pokéyen (?). --TruePikachu 06:20, 13 April 2010 (UTC)
Bird Keeper Sprite
Are we sure that the bird on the Generation I Bird Keeper's arm isn't supposed to be a Pidgey? Because the Pokémon Stadium JP sprite for the Bird Keeper very clearly shows a Pidgey on the Bird Keeper's arm. Phantom♫Junkie 23:56, 23 January 2011 (UTC)
- I was just ABOUT to say the same thing. I say we remove that piece of trivia because of what PhantomJunkie says, the sprite looks (loosely) like a Pidgey in the Generation I Bird Keeper. Masatoshi talk contribs 01:57, 24 January 2011 (UTC)
Shoal Shell and Sea shells.
Shouldn't there be some mention that Shells, which comes from animals, exist in the Pokémon Universe? One Example is the Shoal Shell, which comes from an unidentified animal source. I also vaguely remember in the Orange League someone mentioning the badges were locally harvested shells. I might be wrong since its been years since I saw the episodes.

Should Dub edits be allowed to count?
Should Dub Edits be allowed. The article mentions Muskrat Meatballs, but that is a Dub only thing. They were actually Dungo. and Meowth compares his voice to one of the chipmunks after inhaling a gas coming from a tank, which is more of an Americanized pop culture reference than to an actual animal Yamitora1 (talk) 04:55, 30 May 2013 (UTC)
-I was the one that added that. Perhaps a note that it was only mentioned in the dub would be a good idea, but I think that they should be left in, if only so that someone coming along later that doesn't know that they might not count for this reason doesn't add them back in. Besides, there is a precedent: the article Pokémon world in relation to the real world mentions the fact that the English, Swedish, Danish, and Finnish dubs of Mewtwo Strikes Back all make a reference to real-world places that wasn't in the original Japanese version. Why should that be left in, but muskrat meatballs be taken out? The circumstances are nearly identical. -TBustah (talk) 11:36 PM, March 30, 2015 Pacific
Needing more contribution
- Well, It would help if we know which Pokémon have mention of Real world animals in their dexes. I know Pidgey and Spearow are two examples that I haven't gotten to putting in the article yet (If I remember correctly). Yamitora1 (talk) 20:17, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
Real Horse in Pikachu Short
- Yes, that would be considered a reference to animals in the Pokémon world in the anime, so it does go in the anime section. ㄱ쉰 G50 09:19, 21 July 2013 (UTC)
Butterflies in battle on Route 21
Ok, so I'm training a Japanese 5IV Charizard on Route 21 so that I can breed it. Anyways, I was fighting Spindas when I noticed in the background a repeating yellow Butterfly. Has anyone else notice this butterfly? Yamitora1 (talk) 14:46, 24 January 2014 (UTC)
- Which Route 21? --Wynd Fox 19:42, 24 January 2014 (UTC)
