I have a feeling that if pokemon were real, society would be very different from the games. I imagine many of them would have been hunted to extinction by now: 1 because many of them have some pretty swanky skin/fur/feathers, and 2 because many of them are downright dangerous, with various methods of destruction like the ability to breathe fire, cause droughts, blizzards, earthquakes and tsunamis, and digging. Diglets, I think, would be an enormous pest. You think moles are bad? Just wait until a horde of Diglets undermines the foundation of an entire suburb.
I think pokemon battles would still be a thing, though instead of friendly competition, they would probably take place in some dark freak show, with two enslaved animals forced to fight for the amusement of onlookers.
They would have to be something created and introduced now after most people know what they are and should be. If they were natural and had developed alongside humanity, there wouldn't be any left that aren't useful
@RichardTheLionheart , underrated commebt
@RichardTheLionheart , plus the technology behind pokeballs alone is unfathomably advanced. And the knowledge of Arceus as God would undermine the entire dark ages.
@RichardTheLionheart , mm I don't know. Their powers aren't exactly lethal. Think how many times team rocket has been zapped, burned, frozen and other things. And as for hunting, Pokemon are about as smart as humans and would be able to fight back
@18bluecat, perhaps. But then it was a kids show. If pokemon are able to burn/electocute/bludgeon/and otherwise pummel each other into submission, there's no reason they shouldn't be able to do the same to humans. The pokedex descriptions list some pokemon as capable of incredible feats of strength or destruction. Some of them are used for construction or demolition purposes due to their abilities. It also says that certain species are quite territorial and will attack anything on sight. Skarmory, for example, has feathers of a material that possess a stength on par with steel, as ancient humans made use of Skarmory feathers to fashion armor and weapons. Not to mention that there was a pokemon war; who knows what took place during that? If their abilities weren't strong enough to kill prey or predators, they wouldn't have developed them. What use is fire breath if it isn't strong enough to kill anything?
@RichardTheLionheart , imagine how many would be bred for pets or food just like aquarium fish
@ajr12100, remember that episode of the show where ash was eating an entire deep fried magikarp?
@RichardTheLionheart , let's be real, we humans would have been the ones hunted to extinction in the early ages of our existence
@Lord Commander Snow, Well the idea is supposed to be that Pokemon and humans have essentially coevolved so by the time the modern age comes around they're like dogs in the sense that they have an evolutionary trust of humans in general as well as the ability to he easily trained.
@RichardTheLionheart , It is because of moments like these that I wish I could save comments.
@RichardTheLionheart , wailords would be hunted to near extinction, Burgers would be made of Taurus meat, pikachus would be enslaved to power our cities, and gardevoirs...... Actually lets not get into that
@RichardTheLionheart , Not so. Most Pokémon would be have abilities greater than their human hunters. Some Pokémon, such as Espurr, Mewtwo, Mew, Celebi, etc. would have powers that could crush entire armies like the task was nothing. If there ever came a point where it was all of humanity vs. Pokémon, it's well established that guardians such as Arceus, Dialga, Palkia, Azelf, Mespirit, Uxie, Celebi, Lugia, Ho-Oh, Moltres, Articuno, Zapdos, Entei, Suicune, Raikou, Moltres, Articuno, Zapos, Latios, Latias, Groudon, Kyogre, Rayquaza, and Cobalion would absolutely destroy humanity. However, it wouldn't come to this, since we'd learn very early as a species that you simply don't fuçk with Pokémon. In fact, Pokémon trainers wouldn't exist because it would be unthinkable to dominate a Pokémon like people do dogs or cats.
@Azing, True. Except that Mewtwo is an artificial pokemon. If the legendary pokemon were indeed as legendary as they are said to be, they would prove indomitable to early humans, who in all likelihood would revere them as gods or powerful spirits. But as technology advances, we may attempt to challenge them, much like we do today. The only difference being in pokemon world, the "gods" are definitely actual physical beings, and can be challenged with weapons and technology as well as logic. Whether or not humanity would survive such an encounter is impossible to predict, as I can't say when or how humans would go about challenging the "gods." All I can say for certain, is that they definitely would. It is human nature to challenge and attempt to overcome what is in order to grow and amass more power. Besides, if there was for certain, a living god on earth in our world, and I'm not saying there necessarily isnt, don't you think some humans would try to kill it, just because they could?
God, I can't wait till virtual reality gets good enough for this
@Liar, this is augmented reality.
@Dr Simon Acula, it's not really, it's photoshop. I'm talking oculus rather than phone screen
@Liar, still, if it looks like this than I'd be happy for either
@Liar, I'm doing pretty good and have caught 72. I've taken two gyms. I'm NOT letting any of my high school students beat me XD
@Liar, in the meantime I'll be waiting for the movie adaptation of Ready Player One
@Liar, I'd be inclined to believe you... If you didn't have plants for hire.
@Liar, if it's virtual reality then I would much rather be put into the world of Pokemon than have Pokemon in our world.
@Liar, it's edited, really.
@Sexy Homunculus, READ IT LOVED IT YES
Some people are just awesome
That Purugly looks so pompous
Why are the scrafty's sad and dirty? :(
Should I upload more?
What's wrong with the Scraggies?
Think about where scraftys are normally found and what they are; Hoodlum Pokemon. They might have been kicked out of the 'gang' that were in and now realize that they need help
Nope this isn't real. The world is dominated by Pigdeys, Rattatas, and weedles. There is no diversity in the Pokemon go world!
What types of pikachu safe this
I'm kinda getting burned out on Pokemon Go. There just isn't enough content to keep me entertained.
I still can't figure out how to successfully fight gyms. Every time I try I get my ass handed to me.
Then there's me
Zubats and evees
Zubats and evees everywhere.
Is it just me or did anyone else not want these to stop?
This is Pokémon go, right?
@LT PUNK ROCKET, there aren't enough weedles
Wait is that deoxis in the lucario image?...
Liking this post just out of curiousity for the name and photo.
