    Default What if real life rules applied to pokemon

    I don't know if this has been asked before, but if so, lock this.

    I was thinking, what if real life rules applied to pokemon, how would that change pokemon?

    First, Brock's Happiny would never be able to lift those really heavy things and you couldn't lift a munchlax.

    Can't really think of much now, but if anyone has anything feel free.

    Legendary Pokemon wouldn't be gods and legends would be mostly false.

    You mean people wouldn't worship a super powerful being and pass down stories about it. No you're right that never happens in today's world.


    Most likely everyone would be dead from being roasted, electrocuted, frozen, etc. The age to be a pokemon trainer would also be raised since no parent in RL would let their child leave home at the age of 10 to go train wild animals


    Freakin Adorable.

    Ahem, it doesn't take god-like powers to be worshipped by humans. People worship animals, tools, objects, not just gods.

    Humans wouldn't be the dominant species in a world where there are hundreds of species that are smarter (Alakazam), stronger (Machamp) and both smarter and stronger (Metagross) than them. Like Ryuu said, a lot of Pokemon wouldn't exist and the world probably would have been torn apart in a legendary scuffle by now Oo;

    Everyone would be dead, as a single Magcargo has a temperature of 18,000 degrees farenheit, hotter than the surface of the sun. O.O

    If real life rules applied, most Pokemon would get a serious debuff and most Pokedex entries (around 80%) would be false.

    A new encyclopedia would be used to catalogue all Pokemon.

    But if that's really how pokemon are, then they just plain wouldn't exist.

    If Pokedex entries were actually true, then you would be right. But that's discussion for another topic.

    Anyway, Pokemon are the animals of the Pokemon world so they would exist no matter what.

    Pokemon would have to eat, drink and sleep or they would die. Plus they could bleed probably and break bones (they would need to have bones). Don't know how you'd explain the pokeballs but I doubt something like that could happen.

    Well, Pokemon already can die (Pokemon Tower) and certain Pokemon are said to eat other Pokemon (Pigeotto -> Caterpie) so I think they already do have to eat or else they will die. You just don't have to feed your Pokemon in-game to simplify things for the kid players.

    Also E=MC^2 (or Energy = Mass x Speed of Light squared) could easily explain Pokeballs at the given level of technology the Pokemon world seems to have.

    If real life rules applied, but pokémon DIDN'T get a debuff (that is, they still can do the same things with the same power), they'd get much more scarier and relatively powerful.

    It isn't much to lift a massive rock, but in real life that means a punch of that would be mortal. Furthemore standing such attacks means the creatures would dimish most we could do to them as mere scratches, so bullets and whatnot are for the most part useless.

    The current society isn't adaptable to something like that, and it'd go wrong. Humans would attempt to destroy pokemon in futile efforts, and eventually they would naturally fight back. Plus, some pokemon already kill humans just out of their nature.

    Shortly they'd take over the world, if it isn't physically gone by then.

    Which is exactly why, if applying real life rules, Pokedex entries would be false and Pokemon would be much weaker than what Pokedex's claim.
