    Default So, realistically, if Pokemon existed in the real world would they rule?

    If Pokemon existed in our world would Humans still be at the top? In the anime and games they (for the most part) all live in harmony and they rarely if ever use their immense powers to hurt/kill humans, but our world is nothing like that, so would it not be logical to assume in our world Pokemon would rule and as humans we'd be beneath them, with quite a few people dying from their attacks?

    Considering how humans try to overtake and rule everything, I have a feeling the Pokemon would probably get fed up with us really quick..lol

    Very possibly, Alakazam has an IQ of 3000 so if they're benevolent we'd probably live better off being their pets or something.

    Though some Pokemon seem much more receptive to humans than others. Specifically the ones that are like real life animals. Like Furfrou, which is basically a poodle. Poodles are very intelligent dogs and are also very loyal to humans.

    Pokemon are what they were designed to be, so "realistically," yes, they would still reflect the way we see them in the anime and games.

    If you're looking for a reason why, these are my theories. One possibility is the ability of humans to manufacture tools and technology (especially the Pokeball) has allowed them to rise above Pokemon. An Alakazam may be as smart as a supercomputer, but it has no capability of constructing technology. This theory has a real-world example in the form of dolphins. It is suggested that dolphins may be smart enough to harness technology and begin to develop into a civilization, but living underwater has stopped them from mastering even the simplest of tools. Similar to water for dolphins, Pokemon must posses some sort of barrier that stops them from using technology.

    The other possibility is that instead of humankind's intelligence that makes them dominate, it's their ability to form strategies. It is made obvious that Pokemon love to battle, and want to become stronger. It is also made clear that a Pokemon trained by a trainer is more powerful and battles better than its wild counterpart. It seems very possible that early on in history Pokemon realized the potential there is to be gained by working with humans instead of against them. The two would have quickly formed a symbiotic relationship, similar to how dogs were domesticated.

    Also, a combination of the two is also possible.

    Its kind of a moot point anyway. If Magcargoes are as hot as the surface of the sun then there couldn't be a planet with them that humans could live on. Not to mention all the entei's barking volcanoes, dusclops making black holes, larvitars eating mountains, Tyranitars and Gyaradoses getting angry and giving cartographers overtime by wrecking cities, mountains and rivers on rampages, Yveltal literally killing everything if it dies. And all the ghost types stealing children or generally just killing people. The pokeworld isn't really somewhere humans would survive regardless of what pokemon actually want there are too many that just end human lives by their existence long before humans could get passed the stone age.

    Oh course. The only real advantage we have over animals is our intelligence...and in time, it became a steep advantage. Even the stupidest Pokemon is smart enough to memorize four moves, use items and understand human speech. That's not even getting into the legendaries; there are legit GODS in this world who are Pokemon. What hope does humanity have?!

    Humans are doomed to destroy themselves, in the end. Because one of these days, like it or not, it's gonna happen.

    Unless we somehow become the Mutants or the Inhumans, the pokemon would grind us to a pile of dust. These are creatures that level freaking cities. They can warp reality with moves like trick room.

    This reminds me of the Korean horror fanfic I read long time ago.
    It was about Pokemon turning against humans and they proceed to annihilate us.
    Now that was a great read.

    Anyways, If Pokemon were real, not only humans would go extinct, but most of the pokemon species themselves would go extinct.

    Honestly, if the events in Canalave Library were at least somewhat involved, (the part where pokemon themselves decided to aid humans in whatever way they could) then I'd think that's what would happen. The Pokemon devote themselves to humans. Pokemon themselves wouldn't turn against us, we'd have to worry about the wrong people getting especially powerful Pokemon to shape the world to their whim.

    Realistically? Yeah, we wouldn't stand a chance against them.

    Idk, if they had to obey our world's laws of physics, biology, etc, they'd all be pretty nerfed.

    Going by just human nature and how they want to be the dominant species everywhere for some reason, I'd say most humans would get killed, only leaving those that don't alive. Pokemon are smart creatures, so yeah, it's pretty safe to say they'd rule, at least for a while. Eventually, we could live together, but they would still rule over us. We don't stand a chance against even some fully evolved species, let alone the legends.

    Living amongst Pokemon wouldn't be so bad. lol..Probably better than most of the rude and crazy people I see around my town.

    We don't know that. All that we can be sure of is that we will go extinct one day. Even if we manage to survive climate change, nuclear war, robot uprising, supervolcanos, aliens and the horrors out in space, eventually heat death will kill everyone

    If pokemon were real, poor animals will go extinct (hunting).

    And if animals are gone, and pokemon only faint, microbes would die.

    With the ecosystem in peril (as there are no microbe pokemon to replace the real deal),
    EVERYTHING living thing on the planet will go extinct, dunno about pokemon.

    It'd be worse than that; with the existence of Pokemon like Groudon and Dialga, they wouldn't just conquer the Earth; they'd literally remake the cosmos
