Humaniod. They're inspired by humans, but a caveman is supposedly a direct ancestor to humans, I don't like that thought.
I see what you're saying, but if that's true why is there still a Mew?
Pokemon Emerald: Kadabra:- "It is rumored that a boy with psychic abilities suddenly transformed into Kadabra while he was assisting research into extrasensory powers. "
I don't usually take pokedex entries too seriously since they've sometimes scraped against each other for a variety of reasons. Realistically thinking, there would have had to be a fine line somewhere in evolution. I remember an old Kanto novel I read for the Pokemon Movie a long way back that said Pokemon came before humans, so evolution is a probable and likely theory (Though this is a series of typical ten year olds fighting their pet animals against each other for sport so there's not that much realism in that regard.)

Pokemon like Jynx , Mr. Mime, Gotheitlle, Gardevoir , etc. are usually based on entities from Japanese folklore or are said to be spirits or have some type of spiritual or guardian attachment to it.

Enigma Berry? I never even see one of those... okay, an item that's non-consumable (inorganic, for Theif/Trick, etc...), and available in normal gameplay.
I Hope They Still Continue The Lucario/Zoroark Type Pokemon This Region.
In The Sinnoh Region We Had Lucario. Which Is Based Off Of An Egyptain God Of Funerals, Anubis, Who Has The Head Of A Jackal.
In The Unova Region We Had Zoroark. Which Is Likely Based Off Of An Kitsune Of Japanese Folklore, A Shape-Shifting Mythical Fox That Would Trick Unsuspecting Travelers For Fun.
Sinnoh Region = Lucario
Unova Region = Zoroark
Generation 6 = ?????????
If We Do Have A Pokemon Like Lucario/Zoroark In Generation 6 I Wonder How It Will Look Like.

I don't think they will ever have a Pokemon that is supposed to be a human ancestor (and for good reason! That would ruin everything..). You can have a Pokemon that resembles a caveman, but that doesn't mean it's an ancestor
Rock/Fighting Fossil would be cool. I wanted a Plesiosaur (like lapras but different), but then we've had heaps of Rock/Water. A Rock/Dark velociraptor would be nice.
I feel like we already got a triceratops with Shieldon/Bastiodon.
In terms of pairing Rock with other types for Fossils, things like Electric, Ghost, Psychic wouldn't really fit (but would be awesome).
Regardless, we had an ocean and a sky fossil last gen, it's a good bet we'll be getting a land one again.
I honestly though Zoroark was a type of werewolf when I first saw it's debut in the Pokemon Movie Z. If it's a fox, do you perhaps think we'll get a werewolf this generation?

"People and Pokémon, too, were but the same presence.
As I understand it, people and Pokémon shared the spirit and awareness.
They should have understood and accepted each other then.
Because they shared the same spirit, people and Pokémon intermingled.
People took the place of Pokémon, and the opposite also held true."

I guess evolution in the real world ties animals and humans together...I just find it a weird concept in the Pokemon world (now added to a long list of weird concepts hahaha)
Another idea: like the Zangoose/Seviper rivalry, what about a giant squid/sperm whale rivalry?
And I think a Narwhal based Pokemon would be pretty cool.
EDIT: And according to Bulbapedia, they're based off of dream-eating spirits from Japanese folklore known as baku.

It would be interesting to have a porcupine pokemon. And for anyone going to say "say hellos sandshrew and sandslash" they are shrews and Shaymin is a hedgehog.
