So there are diseases in Pokemon world right? Regardless there must be bacteria. Are bacteria in Pokemon world just microscopic Pokemon? Do Pokemon white blood cells use moves to fight off micro bacteriamon?
Dude it's a fucking children's game and anime, they don't put that much thought into it and neither should you.
You're suffering Tumblr syndrome where you think way harder than the creators.
Life forms don't have to be pokemon. There are plenty of plants in the games that aren't pokemon. It seems like the only animals that exist in the games are pokemon, but the anime had some normal fish early on
There are regular animals in the games. Referenced in the pokedex even in the remakes and mentions of them in dialogue that aren't just expressions. Get it right already /vp/. It's an alternate Earth plus Pokemon and all that implies.
No regular animals are ever shown. The most we see is something being like "the mouse Pokemon" but that's all that means in universe. If someone references as bird it's to be assumed that they mean a bird Pokemon.
>Are bacteria in Pokemon world just microscopic Pokemon?
How many times will we need to repeat to tards like you that animals exist in the pokemon world?
You have animals (including humans, bacteria and the animals humans eat) and you have pokemon.
Wrong again. The pokedex makes comparison to actual animals and even names them. Most infamously the Indian elephant. Bulbapedia has every relevant instance of animals existing in the games. Look it up. Eating real fish is even mentioned in the games.
>thinking something is invalid because it's the gen that establishes everything
Even if that were a reason. They weren't retconned for the remakes and there's even examples in XY. You're served actual fish and shown real butterflies.
You see him walking back to his hotel late at night, not many people around. He's slightly drunk and monologue-ing about all the terrible ideas he's going to implement into the next games.
I follow him and convince him to come drink another round while telling me of waifus and monsters. When we're walking, I lead him to the bad part of town(This is my city, right?), then scream NIGGER in a chink accent. I run away, while he is too drunk and confused about the layout of this unfamiliar city to escape.
HOLD ON A MINUTE
>Is everyone in the world of Pokémon a vegetarian? Do people eat Pokémon? When they are eating steak are they eating a Tauros?
>Masuda: There’s a lot of fruits and vegetables in the world of Pokémon. There is also a variety of snacks and various candies and whatnot that come from the different regions. The Pokémon world is much more technologically advanced than the world of our own, so perhaps there is probably a lot of different food that we can’t even think of.
>One example of that is there is even a Rare candy which is an actual snack or piece of candy that can make you stronger, raise your level. There are all kinds of strange food that really doesn’t exist in our universe.
Nothing about real animals. Atheist: 0
I looked it up and it does appear there are real animals in Pokemon. However that's retarded and I'm ignoring it.
It would seem that Micromon have to share a lot of features. How much variance in appearance do Micromon have? Clearly there's at least hundreds of different types.
I don't even know if they would be powerful enough to be considered monsters and they're definitely not pocket monsters because pokeballs wouldn't be able to catch them. However, we do have space viruses if Deoxys is anything to go by. Basically a hull of proteins and RNA. Viruses as we know them aren't officially alive; it's complicated. Space viruses might be alive since true viruses as we know them are native to Earth. These space viruses might have mutated into the first pokemon like mew and even arceus. Clefairy is rumored to come from the moon, maybe they were microscopic organisms during that time. It could work. When earth was just a crappy mud ball a meteor came down, and boom we've got the first pokemon. Or these microscopic organisms are the key to evolution.
Like how midi-chlorians are responsible for the Force.They might have infected the native earth fauna, and then affected them. Including what would become humans if we're to take the Sinnoh Myth's claims seriously.
If we're going that far back then sure life on Pokeworld probably started the same way ours did unless Arceus put it there. In the movie with Lucario it straight up says Pokemon are magic but that probably shouldn't be seen as canon. The midichlorian idea is stupid. Midichlorians are stupid.
I'm not really interested in how the world came to be. I'm just thinking about modern micromon.
Of course Pokeballs can't catch them because they're designed to catch things of a decent size. It would be worthless to have Pokeballs that catch every microbe. They would be useless. Microbes may also not be very well studied in universe. If they are wouldn't Pokerus be a common injection?
>Lucario it straight up says Pokemon are magic but that probably shouldn't be seen as canon
Pokemon are magic.
To us, at least. The laws of a universe with Pokemon as we know them would be different from ours, so they would be considerd science there, but it would be a science that we don't have.
Pokerus seems like a wimpy virus in that it leaves indefinitely once the Pokemon is cured. Whereas with most viruses a little bit of it stays with you forever and can infect someone on other side of the world who has never been exposed to it. It just might be hard to cause a real outbreak and injections cost a hefty amount of money. Not to mention, it's definitely not as contagious as measles or even a slightly strong cold.
Microbes being responsible for pokemon's powers doesn't have to be lame like Star Wars. Take real life. Our bodies have a whole bunch of beneficial bacteria to the point that we can't function normally without them. Most notably digestion. How about instead of boring stuff like that the microbes are responsible for maintaining special organs which give something the ability to shoot water? Or maybe they become electrically charged really easily?
Arthur C Clarke said it first. Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. At least to a less advanced civilization.
Yes but they were stated as magic within that universe. It was olden times though so...
I think it's dumb still and unnecessary. A pokemon would have some sort of bladder for shooting water. Fire might be caused by the mixing of chemicals like in bombardier beetles or from striking flammable materials. There are animals with electrical powers in real life. All animals have bioelectricity, some Pokemon have stronger ones and can project theirs or they store up extra electrolytes like eels.
I don't know how else monster microbes would work. If the bacteria isn't helping your body function or isn't being passively derping then it's probably harming you. But I guess terrific monsters would have terrific diseases. As in it begets terror.
There are those ancient bacteria older than humanity that were thawed and still alive, and things like waterbears. But they're already pokemon tier in a way.
