    I don't mind eating vegan as long as I don't get arrested.

    1. I "could" but I doubt I would... Why not? Because... why would I ?
    2. It depends... I am all for better living conditions for farm animals... so long as it doesn't affect me too much...
    3. Of course... And its not a question of "if"... They are sentient and no less so than humans... (at least all vertebrates)

    I thought it was interesting that some people said it really depended on the culture/morals of their environment,

    So it’s not really an intrinsic moral

    If pokemon were as intelligent as humens there would probably be humen vs pokemon wars and pokemon countrys
    not to mention but in the shows and games alot of pokemon probably die everyday in battles and in nature anyway what with carnivorous pokemon like wolves bigcats snakes Dragons and all kinds of others so why wouldn't you partake too?

    But if the Pokemon started doing this, I might reconsider.

    Well, its easier to do something society agrees with than something society disagrees with, regardless of your own morals.
    Since going against society in such a big way usually includes some forms of either ostracizing or outright fights (ie. Law or depending on the society actual fights)

    The plants there are pokemon too right? In that case you can't survive without eating one or the other. So pick eating plant pokemon or animal. I'm good with eating both. So long as it tastes good.

    Honestly, if lab-grown food would be cheaply available right now, virus free, bacteria free, etc, full of vitamins and things like that, and it would also have a good taste, i could probably forget traditional food even right now. It`s a must, so that i may be able to travel among the stars ...

    There are grass-type Pokemon, but almost every depiction of the series has regular trees and plants — so I would say no.

    Like sudowoodo is a fake tree (rock type), not an actual one.

    So I classify them as plant-like animals

    Uhhh, I don’t think it works that way, usually.

    What if the scenario was aliens that eat humans for food?

    Plants can move, they can perceive, they can learn, they can communicate, they show signs of pain and fear, etc, etc, etc...
    They're obviously no less alive than animals... They're just a bit "slow"...
    But vegans don't care? Why?

    Of course I became vegan. And then die in few years. Because it's destiny of all dumb people who don't know simple biology.

    I like meat, it tastes delicious....umu, but I also like animals...they cuddle well. Sentient animals that could be my bestest bud...I would choose the animal! Yes, I would give everything up! In reality I have already started to make the change...just turkey tastes too good for now, and I love eggs a bit too much..and there is no fluffy animal to encourage me yet~

    1. I could. Not so much for milk and eggs tho.

    2. Yep.

    3. If it has achieved sapience-hood, then no. But anything under that is fair game.
