    There would be cruelty, undoubtedly. Especially when dealing with cages and breeding.

    It doesn't make Pokemon obey without question. Not only has that not been said in-game, you can experience disobedient Pokemon for yourself. Just trade over a high-level Pokemon at the start of your game. =P

    Capturing a Pokemon is akin to forming a bond with them. To capture is to become friends and partners; that's why Pokemon listen to trainers. In order to catch them, you have to earn their respect by besting them in battle. Pokemon are creatures that enjoy competition, and the games all state that the competition trainers are participating in is a friendly sort.

    Like dog fights and **** ^^
    Friendly competition, yadda yadda, Pokemon don't get seriously hurt, so on and so forth, more akin to boxing matches than dog fights, et cetera et cetera.



    There'd almost certainly be Pokemon cruelty. The bad guy teams in-game give us an example of what some people might decide to do to/with Pokemon. But Pokemon are also smarter and more capable than real-world animals, so they'd be better able to organize and defend themselves. You can't confine in a cage a creature that can chop/burn/atomize the cage at whim, right?

    And there'd also be good trainers all over the world standing up against Pokemon cruelty and wiping it out wherever it arose. ^_^

    Wha? Is there some backstory there that I dont know about(I probably don't tbh :S)? As far as I know that has nothing to do with humans D:

    Shell yeah :3

    EDIT : And assuming that Legendaries are involved also, none of them would allow it. Most notably the Muskateers.

    No... First of all the pokemon could attack them unless they were magikarps. Keep in mind there are regular animals out there. Plus, here comes Team Mc.Donalds

    Sadly, there probably would be A Lot of cruelty, but hopefully also many "save-the-pokemon" groups trying to work against it.
    I still think the cruelty coming with Pokemon being real, would be worth having them.

    It's in most Pokémon's nature to be competetive against other Pokémon, or something like that.

    Anyway, no sh*t there would be cruelty. There'd also be death, suffering, sadness, madness, war, and other misfortunes.

    The Pokémon world was only made to be the go-happy sunshine universe because the animé is unfortunately aimed at kids. It has LOADS of potential of being aimed at an older audience, hell I'd even start watching the animé again if that ever happened.

    But, it won't.

    Pokemon is an involuntary sport for the Pokemon. They probably follow along and maybe even like it, but they don't have a choice. Frustration, for example, as a TM, executed properly would indicate your Pokemon doesn't like you, but the game doesn't let them get up and run away.

    The anime, manga, etc tries to make sense of it, but the core game says Pokemon don't have a choice but to listen to trainers who have all of their badges. And the function of the Pokeball is a container. Pokemon struggle when you initially try to catch them. They cease to become sovereign beings. The majority of them end up sitting in your PC forever because you wanted to fill your Pokedex.

    Black/White hijacked the argument against Pokemon battling by introducing strawman Team Plasma. Their qualm against battling is something we can sympathize with. But when we see someone we sympathize with, incidentally act pigheaded about it, kick a Munna, find out their leader is a complete monster, and their king is deluded, we stop sympathizing with them and by association quit believing their original premise, no matter how much truth it contained, because it is now connected with those instances of horror.

    But it is, just a game.

    Sadly yes. There will be Pokemon cruelty.

    But they should be able to defend themselfs. I mean come on. They are POKEMON. Use flamethrower, seed bomb, scald, whatever! They all have at least one attack they can use!

    .... Poor magicarps tho :P

    Of course there would be, there will always be people who abuse animals, I'm sure people would find a way to abuse Pokemon.

    Team Galactic kidnapping the Lake Guardians and leaving all those poor Magikarp to flop about helplessly... And Paul is technically a pokemon abuser too.

    Pokemon contests. Do you think they like getting fed nasty pokeblocks? Or like using ugly props?

    Think about it this way; in the games, we force our Pokemon to breed over to over again just so that we can get one that looks pretty. We spend days upon days fighting the same Pokemon just to train ours in a certain way. Not to mention the fact that the Mafia, the environmentalists and the cults all use Pokemon to battle people instead of using guns.

    I'd think just as much as there is animal cruelty will be pokemon cruelty. But your post makes it seem as if that's the only thing happening, the open world with pokemon filled with in it would be mostly pleasant. Eventually on your pokemon journey you'll across some sort of pokemon cruelty but you can just "eliminate" the bad guy, since it the real world & all. "Vigilante"

    Ah yes. This. And the fact that you release new-born pokemon into the wild just because it had the wrong IVs.

    That's why the games tell you what food they like :/ It's the medical herbs that Pokemon don't like because of the taste(which is why they lower friendship).

    No, we just put them in the day care. They do the breeding. That's why the Day Care guy says that they "seem to get along", or something along those lines.

    Pokemon like fighting. It's how they train themselves. Wild Pokemon faint and run away after battles, perhaps to go back into the wild for rest.

    Why do pokemon do all the heavy life threating things. I think they would put sick machokes in caves just for the fun of it. And I agree with Flame poor lv1 poochy released into Challengers cave? ETA untill death would be quick for the poor poke. Electric types used to power cities (Reference to HG SS electrics powering Rocket base.)

    just sums it all up in one stolen pokeball.
