Are Pokemon our slaves?

We put them in little balls, force them to fight, and they get nothing in return

They are not our slaves. They are our friends that we couldn't live without.

They get stronger. A home. Friendship/companionship/love.

No. Same thing with real life, animals under human companionship (most of the time) have better lives. They have better food, health care, affection, home, hell even a mate.. people like to say zoo animals" belong in the wild where they're happy", i assure you wild animals are NOT happy.. it's not a rainbow & lollipops world out there in the wild. Especially for animals on the bottom of the food chain. Wild animals get killed by each other, for competition (greatest example is how Lions of Africa kill hyenas and other big cats on sight), eatin, and small injuries like gashes can be fatal due to affection, it's not like they can go to the hospital and fix it up.

It's a symbiotic relationship. Tiger gave a good example.

We enter their habitats, beat the **** out of them, then trap them in little orbs that brainwash them into being obedient pets/soldiers.

I'd say yeah...

There's an NPC in Opelucid City in BW1 that overtly tells us Pokemon can leave whenever they want. Apparently they just like humans. In RBY we're told that the primary reason why wild Pokemon attack humans is because they're jealous of the Pokemon being trained.
