Why do cat Pokemon suck so much?
>>
>>25091813
Cats are objectively better than dogs, Anon.
>>
Many of them are found early game
Most of them are pure normal type, or at least part normal type

>Espurr instead of Glameow
>>
Why does OP's opinion suck so much?
>>
Because it's the same in real life and GF is trying to be realistic.
>>
GF prefers to take the knot over the barbs.
>>
I used to think Manetric was a lion.

Years later I discovered it is supposed to be a Maned Wolf.
>>
Mightyena is cool. It's a cat
>>
>>25091867
A hyena. And no they are not feline.
>>
>>25091813
Replace Purrugly with Meowstic M
>>
>>25091886
They're closer to felines than canines.
>>
>>25091886
Actually, Hyenas are half feline and half canine.
>>
>>25091895
Still not part of the Felidae family
>>
>>25091896
That doesn't even makes sense.
>>
>>25091900
It doesn't matter what family they belong to, if you ask a biologist they can tell you, a Hyena is basically a link between dogs and cats but is probably more cat
>>
>>25091906
It does if you understand basic evolution, between cats evolving and dogs evolving you get hyenas.
>>
What would you classify Absol as?

Also c'mon the great cat mutant Mewtwo.

An updog, I guess.

Would bringing up the legendary beasts open a can of worms?

A bipedal dog is still a dog

Replace that with Furfrou and you're set.

>>
>>25091951
purugly is shit lad
>>
>>25091958
A jackal, specifically.
>>
>>25091926
I'd say it's meant to be a mountain lion with some dog-like characteristics. Its legs don't exactly match the structure of typical cats/dog, rather like the eevees don't tend to resemble cats/dogs/foxes exactly perfectly.
>>
>>25091813
What about these?
>>
>>25091976
Sabertooth tiger, lion, suicune
>>
>>25091952
What's updog?
>>
>>25091976
Hamsters, of course.
>>
>>25091896
Please be bait.
>>
>>25091983
I think suicune is a cheetah
>>
>>25091896
No their not, they are just closer to felines in the evolution sectrum. However that does not make them half dog half cat
>>
>>25091920
Thats not how evolution works its alot different.
>>
>>25091976
Tiger, Lion/Mastiff hybrid, and Wolf
>>
>>25091976
beasts of legend

raikou ???
Entei = foo dog
Suicune = Kirin
>>
>Good Dog Pokemon
Arcanine
Houdoom
>Good Cat Pokemon
Persian
Luxray
Raikou

Alright then.

>inb4 Raikou is a dog
He's a fucking Sabertooth Tiger, now Suicune is a dog and Entei is a combination of the two, they're beasts.
>>
>>25092007
>wolf
>domesticated by humans
>dog

>lion
>domesticated by humans
>cat

>wolf/lion
>undomesticated
>hyena

Things don't just change for no reason, they adapt to their environments or in the case of the hyena the lack of domestication
>>
>>25091976
Sabertooth Tiger (Raikou), Wolf (Suicune), Lion-Dog (Entei).

Legendary Beasts or Hamsters, which ever.
>>
What about mew and mewtwo?
>>
>>25091975
Absol is based on the bai ze or the barghest both miythical dog like beast.
>>
>>25092053
Setting aside lion->cat for a moment, are you seriously trying to tell me that wolves and lions converged into hyenas?
>>
Hyena are Feliformia, which includes Cheetahs. Carniformia is the dog Suborder.

A hyena is far closer to a cat, same as a Mongoose which is under Feliformia.
>>
>>25092072
There are wolves and lions literally everywhere on earth EXCEPT the territory held by Hyenas. Coincidence or science?
>>

Dogs are best
>>
>>25092175

Hyenas and lions share biomes in Africa dude.
>>
>>25092175
Lions and Cheetahs both exist in Hyena Territory. Hell tons of Cats/Dogs exist around Hyena.
>>
>>25092175
Both lions and hyenas are exclusively found in Africa and the middle east today. What are you smoking?
>>
>>25092222
No wait there is a small amount of lions hanging on in India too, point still stands though.
>>
>>25092175
Territory speaks for it self, its pretty much how crips & blood stay away from each other unless one be creeping onto their turf.
>>
>>25092250
Except Lions and Hyenas regularly get into it because they share the same territory.

It'd be like if the Bloods and Crips both lived on the same street across from each other instead of on the North/South Sides of town for instance.
>>
>>25092211
>>25092213
Lions and Hyenas live in the same biome but not the same territory, Hyenas live in elephant graveyards and places where Lions cannot go, Lions tend to prefer rocky savannahs

No. They don't suck.
Mewtwo is a Reptilian cat and a very powerful Pokémon.

So is everyone going to pretend that the eevee evolutions aren't cats?

Please stop using The Lion King as your reference.

>>25092976
Some look more feline to me and some look more canine. Like Jolteon will always like like a dog while Espeon is clearly a cat.

I think the animal that that has the most similarities with all the eeveelutions is the fennec fox, which would make them closer to canines.
>>
>>25092044
>suicune is a dog
Retard alert.
>>
>>25093022
It looks the most like a wolf to me, at least more than a cheetah or snow leopard.
Aside from the obvious Qilin inspiration of course.

Stoutland can 6-0 your team and not even blink.

Lions are known for stealing kills from Hyenas dude, individual groups of animals having swaths of established territory isn't the same as one population being isolated on an island or on another continent or some shit.
>>
>>25091951
Liepard is decent with Prankster, not good, but decent.
>>
>>25091976
They're based on the three beasts that Dante meets before his descent into hell. The Lion, which represents pride "with it's head held high". Notice who has the highest head. The she-wolf, which represents either lust or greed (the lust can be explained with the feminine looking body of Suicune, while the greed can be represented by the thinness of the monster " She’s got nothing... and she wants it all"). Finally the Leopard, which represents Fraudulence. Raikou looks like it is raising it's leg out of pain, but this is only to try and fake the trainer into leaving it be. They run around trying to distract the player from reaching enlightenment (catching Lugia or Ho-oh), much like how the three beasts in the poem try to stop Dante from reaching his enlightenment.

Hyenas could be an example of convergent evolution, bears and dogs have a more commonly related ancestor than dogs an hyenas do
Carnivora is divided into 2 major groups
Caniformes
Canines
Bears
Racoons and their allies
Mustelids
Skunks (not considered a mustelid anymore)
arguably pinnipeds

and feliformes
Hyenas
Felines
Civets and their allies (Fossa binturong)
Mongooses and their allies

while Hyenas belong to the feliforme group they are not felines they are just more closely related to them than they would be members of the caniform group.
