Talk:Animals in the Pokémon world

From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Jump to: navigation, search

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. PhantomJunkie 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.

Old Mandibuzz

An old guy in Lillycove City says "I feel like an old Buzzard" or something like that... Should tis be added to the "games" section? - unsigned comment from Mamutepeq (talkcontribs)

Bear Bag

In BW047 a girl was wearing a bag with bear face! The little girl with her mom TheSeviper ♫ハブネーク♫ 21:12, 25 August 2012 (GMT)

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)

Needing more contribution

What needs more information here? InMooseWeTrust (talk) 15:08, 5 June 2013 (UTC)

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

A friend and I recently noticed this depiction of a real horse in the Pikachu and Pichu Bros. short. Would this go in the anime section?[1] --Meepinator (talk) 08:58, 21 July 2013 (UTC)

Yes, that would be considered a reference to animals in the Pokémon world in the anime, so it does go in the anime section. 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)
Kalos, Spinda hordes only show up in XY on Kalos' route 21. Yamitora1 (talk) 11:51, 25 January 2014 (UTC)

Seaking card

I believe the pink on the Jungle Seaking is another instance of coral. The yellow could be interpreted as coral or plant life. --GARY-DOS (talk) 04:41, 29 March 2015 (UTC)
