Normal animals DO exist in the Pokemon Universe!!!

I'm currently playing through Red for the first time in....many years, and I am trying to get the the fullest experience possible out of the game. Catching EVERY Pokemon, Collecting EVERY item. even talking to every NPC which I don't think I have done since my first time playing the game back in the 90's

Anyway, I hop aboard the SS Ann and eventually make my way to the kitchen, rather then stroll right over to the garbage can and collecting my Great Ball, I go around and see what all the cooks hav to say, when I got to the head chef he said he was making "SALMON du Salad"

I know it's not a big deal, but I have always ALWAYS thought there was no mention, no matter how descret of any real life animals in any of the Pokemon games/anime.

Can anyone else think of any references to real life animals in Pokemon? There are probably plenty, but this is the first one I've ever seen.

Pokedex types designations obviously don't count.

EXAMPLE: Pikachu, the mouse Pokemon.

Isn't there a Pokedex description that mentions African Elephants?

You know, when I saw that as a kid I remember thinking that the mongoose bit was a bad decision because there could be a mongoose Pokemon down the line...

Anatidaephobia is the fear that somewhere, somehow, a duck is watching you, staring into your soul, using its duckiness.
QUACK.
