Well i guess we long settled the legendary beast arguement snd theyre cats but i always had questions about these

Is snorlax a cat?

Is slowpoke and evo's bears?

Is electabuzz a cat? I used to think so when i was a kid but not so much anymore. A tazmanian devil? Ape?

Is arcanine a tiger or some kind of dog? (Thus canine.. but its orange and has stripes)

Mew & mewtwo are supposed to be cats? With "mew" in their names. Goof translation?? They look way different from typical cats such as raikou or persian.

Snorlax is probably a bear.

Slowpoke/bro are probably hippos.

Electabuzz is an oni.

Arcanine is a shiisa.

Mew(two) are cats.

Always thought Mewtwo was based on a Kangaroo. Mostly because of it jumping all the time in Mystery Dungeon.

That is one translation of it, though most go with ogre to avoid the connotation of "demon". They are often depicted as having horns, affiliation with lightning/thunder, and often wear the furs of tigers.

They all look like mammals to me, but they all lay eggs. except the legendaries since they can't breed.
