** Really, the confusion isn't so much non-Pokemon dogs appearing with Pokemon ones, but more of "if all animals (and many non-animals) are Pokemon then where are the myriad insects integral to decomposition?" and similar questions since what with the smallest Pokemon still being about 4 inches, many important roles in an ecosystem must be carried out by something that isn't a Pokemon, despite there not being much reference if any to non-Pokemon animals.
** Animals do get referenced several times but they never appear within the games. This could be do to graphical limits - that they don't need to be seen so they don't appear in sprite form but are supposed to exist - or they may just not exist within the areas the games take place.

Added DiffLines:

** Another bit of confusion is the fact that a fair number of Pokémon are very human-like, as in they're clearly based on people. But at the same time, they're trained and behave much like other Pokémon.

** In ''[[SonicStorybookSeries Sonic and the Black Knight]]'', some of the items you can identify include bat's fangs and rabbit's tails. [[FridgeHorror It makes one wonder where Rouge and Cream were during the adventures of the Small Critters of the Round Table...]]

** The dogs from the game. Dogamy and Dogaressa, as well as Doggo, are all anthropomorphic, although they show dog-like behavior occasionally, and speak English. The Greater Dog and Lesser Dog are much less anthropomorphic, and do not speak. The Annoying Dog has little if any humanoid traits aside from [[{{Troll}} a mischievous sense of humor.]]

* How about ''Leafy'' Confusion? The WiiWare game ''Bonsai Barber'' has a cast made up of giant sentient fruits and vegetables (and a cactus), but while a number of the characters ''are'' fruit, they can also ''grow'' fruit (apples) on their branches as well. To make matters weirder, you also have in your shop, in a position of prominent display, an ordinary potted plant "named" Prunella.

* In the ''BreathOfFire'' games, your entire party by and large consists of full anthros and petting zoo people, yet no one complains or even seems to think about it when you happily mow down, hunt, or fish their mundane, quadrupedal or legless counterparts, or use and abuse pack animals and pets. (Well, there is one scene in ''BreathOfFireII'' where your dogman friend objects to a pig being cooked, but that's because he was being paid to retrieve it...)

** This also applied to most of the species in the series based on real world animals. While all penguins and primates in the series are anthropomorphic, many others have both anthropomorphic and non-anthropomorphic members, sometimes even in the same game. ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor'' features both an anthropomorphic pig and characters who are cursed into normal pigs, for example; while ''Franchise/WarioWare'' features both an anthropomorphic dog (Dribble) and a non-anthropomorphic but magical dog (Shadow), alongside the anthropomorphic dogs from Paper Mario known as Dogans.
