Japanese culture believes that things created by people have a sort of spirit attached to them, and a masterful creator can imbue a particularly strong one in his or her creations. Objects owned by people and cared for can eventually take on a life of their own.

Thus, Pokemon based on objects are fully possible and very likely considering that they are a part of Japanese folklore.

Also, see Voltorb, Electrode, Magneton, Porygon...

i'm not gonna argue about the latter two, but the former...maybe the pokeballs were based on voltorb/'d make more sense.
