** And let's not forget the first example of this: Farfetch is native to Johto.

*** Not necessarily--they can be found in the wilds of Kanto in Yellow Version, too. (In that game, it's the only way to acquire one since the man trading it in Red/Blue no longer does.) That could very well mean that Farfetch'd migrate much like real ducks, though.

** In ''Videogame/PokemonSunAndMoon'', in a similar vein to slowpokes tail, the Moon entry for Crabrawler says: "It punches so much, its pincers often come off from overuse, but they grow back quickly. What little meat they contain is rich and delicious." so there's a sort of crab meat/seafood item. Slowpoke tails are also mentioned to be a part of alolan home cooking (made into a stew). A somewhat more questionable (and perhaps purposly vague) source of animal proteins are the "Fresh fillets/Frozen lean cuts/ and Leftover ''fish'' tips" for sale (but not actually available to the player character) in the Thrifty Megamart.

It's possible that besides berry orchards/farms, there's farms for Pokemon that can have parts of their body harvested without lasting harm, like Crabrawler pincers, Slowpoke tails, Tropius fruits, etc.

**** If something doesn't seem to make sense, and you get an explanation for it that makes sense and doesn't contradict anything, denying it out of hand is a bit pointless. There's no point questioning something if you refuse answers.

** Possibly confirmed by gen VII, where Ride Pokèmon override Hidden Moves, and your sprite while the feature is activated depicts you in safety gear. It may also serve as an in-universe explanation to why it took 7 gens for the ScrappyMechanic to be ridden altogether -- after a few too many accidents some people finally realized it'd be safer to relegate transportation/boulder-moving/rock-hurling duties to Pokèmon already ''specifically'' trained for those tasks, with adequate gear to boot, instead of leaving them up to the mostly-child Trainers themselves.

Maybe it's not just cultural differences that make Alolans get mad at tourists who use the wrong Pokèmon to ride on.

* Almost all plot-relevant/cover legendary Pokémon start out with 0 base friendship. Makes sense, considering that every villain starting from Hoenn has tried to harness legendary Pokémon power for their own selfish ends. Makes sense that they would bear some justified resentment towards humanity by the time you battle them, no? Even Mewtwo, who didn't take part in the plot, had more than enough reason to distrust humans.

** As for the (usually non-plot relevant) trio legendaries who start with 35 base friendship, it's probably because they don't want to show themselves to just any old trainer -- the fact that some of them roam is an additional test of strength. The Sinnoh lake guardians are an exception to this; they're willing to trust you from the get-go because you released them from Team Galactic.
