Like any other animal, Pokémons are placed into various categories. This means that, depending on the species of the Pokémon, it can eat fruits, berries, leaves, or meat.

There are pokédex entries that verify Pokémon, like the following foods:

  • Poké block- a type of Pokémon adored candy
  • Puffin
  • Honey
  • Berries,
  • Drinks- acts like healing portions to Pokémons
  • Aprijuice
  • Poké puffs
  • Poké beans
  • Curry
  • Sandwiches
  • Small insects
  • Other Pokémon – as prey

Pokémon food is a widely used term encompassing all types of food that Pokémon consumes, regardless of the specific Pokémon or food.

Several species of Pokémon can eat inedible food such as minerals, electrical energy, or even abstract concepts such as dreams, emotions, and human souls.

Some species eat other Pokémon, and humans can eat Pokémon.

Do Pokémons eat other Pokémons?

Yes. Predators are abundant in the world of Pokémon. The universe of Pokémon has similarities to our animal domain. This suggests that there is a likelihood that the behavioral patterns of our animals and Pokémon might correlate.

Animals eat other animals in the real world, and Pokémon devour other Pokémon in the Pokémon universe. Pokédex entries portray the Camorant battling Arrokuda whilst attempting to gorge on it. 


What do wild Pokémons eat?

Wild Pokémons are just like our wild animals. Although some of them eat berries and leaves, most prey on one another.

Below is a table explaining this phenomenon 👩‍🏫:

Humans hunt Pokémon to obtain meat for their carnivore diet. Pokédex entries show that humans hunted the Farfetch’d, a wild duck Pokémon that was transformed into a delightful dish—especially when cooked with leek, to the point of extinction.

Slowpoke tails are traded by Team Rocket as a rare treat in the Gen II games. According to Sinnoh Folk Tales, it is customary for sailors to consume sea-caught Pokémon and then return the bones for regeneration.

Episodes, such as Ash and Brock imagining eating Magikarp, emphasize how people considered Pokemon meat as food.
