Remember the days when Pokemon were animals?

Muk is not an Animal, neither is Koffing, or w/e Mewtwo is. Plenty of non animals in Gen 1.

First, I commend TC for the work he put, although I disagree with some of the Pokémon he labeled as non-animals.

Second, many of the responses make it abundantly clear people didn't read the freaking topic.

Third, people still freaking out over Honedge that honestly think living pseudo Pokeballs, living floating magnets or living sludge is better than a living sword are kind of amusing.
#63SirPiercePosted 7/5/2013 9:51:48 PM
Expected this to be a thread trashing Honedge. I was gonna have to shank. I have wanted a possessed sword forever.

Pleasantly surprised. People just like to whine about everything.

Dragons aren't considered animals? o_O


Dragons do not exist. They are figments of man's imagination, so no, they are not animals.


In your opinion


Man, I really hope you are trolling and don't actually believe dragons are real. It would be sad to think that in this age there are still people who think that there are giant, flying, fire breathing lizards living on earth, that have some how managed to avoid being discovered.

I try not to get upset about the stupid things people say online but please don't tell me people believe in dragons.(not including people who are high)

"Rapidash is based on a Unicorn with flames coming out of it, must not be animal based"

This is what the people saying the dragons aren't based on animals sound like to me. Dragons were created independantly in many regions based on the primal fear of large cats, birds of prey, and reptiles. Something based on a combination of animals is still based on an animal in my book.

Aren't Slugma and Magcargo just lava slugs and snails?
