Gardevoir Aren't Furries by KiloTrays Gardevoir Aren't Furries by KiloTrays
A furry is an animal (fox, rabbit, dog, etc.) with human-like qualities. Gardevoir are designed to be HUMANS not animals. They're not even covered in fur. So what dumbass said she was a furry?

Well there are actually multiple definitions of furry. The one I normally go with is not the creature, but the person infatuated with it.

So I guess E.T. and Tinkerbell are furries too.

Pokemon are animal-like beings in their world. So, not furry, but a humanoid animal-like creature. They are also in a pet like friendship with their trainers. So if a trainer (human) is in a romantic relationship with a Gardevoir, Jynx, Melotta, Mr. Mime, etc... They are having a wrong relationship with their "pet". Even if these pokemon look like humans remotely, the relationship in the series is pet to owner. This even is in Digimon with Angemon and Angewoman; they are Takeru and Hikari's non-human friends (pet like friendship).  On another note, anthropomorphism (anthro) applies even to animals without fur. People just use the the term furry as a blanket term.

Spend too much time on these subjects when writing stories and watching Thundercats....

Another joke ruined thanks to SCIENCE! :rofl:

Not sure if that's a fair argument. Where does that leave reptiles, birds, aquatic creatures, insects etc animals without fur?

i am pretty sure that she is a treant, according to my friend, embrace species means carnivorous plant

No, Gardevoir is NOT a plant. Here, "embrace" means to hold close as an expression of affection, which is what Gardevoir does with her trainer. Gardevoir is more so a guardian angel.

So what exactly is she then? I judge from her name and floral appearance that she is a highly evolved plant species. She doesn't look like she's related to any type of mammal or reptile.

Are you applying IRL logic to Pokemon? In that case, how does a remora evolve into an octopus?

Well, apply another logic and tell me what she is? Pokemon logic, maybe? I don't think "angel" has any logic behind it.

Actually, it was not based on a human. According to bulbapedia, it was based on Guardian Angels, and if it had been based on humans, it would be in the "Humanshape" egg group, but guess what? It is actually in the "Indeterminate" egg group with Grimer and Muk.

It also said that they're based on ballroom dancers, which are human females. And as for their egg grouping, it doesn't make sense for these reasons: 1. You can physically touch a Gardevoir and they don't have the ability to phase through objects nor are they gaseous. 2. Gardevoirs aren't slimy nor do they have the ability to melt. So that leaves me to question their egg grouping.

Well, considering that they are mostly based on Guardian Angels, which in a way are some sort of spirit, it is no surprise. Ghost types are spirit, and most are in the indeterminate egg group too, though oddly enough, so is Chimecho, based a "Japanese furin wind chime" and Wobuffet seems to be based on a doll and karma. Then again, the whole breeding thing of Pokemon never made sense. I still do not understand how Kangaskhan is born with a baby already in its pouch.

Well, it doesn't say that they're mostly based on Guardian Angels, it just says that they're based on them, ballroom dancers, and some kind of Japanese papercraft doll. And about Kangaskhan, they really should have made a male counterpart for them. That would explain how they recieve their babies in their pouch. Or they probably reproduce asexually. I don't know. And as for the indeterminite egg group, I don't just question why Gardevoir is in it. I also question why Eelektross (an electric eel based Pokemon) is in it too. Wouldn't it be in the water 1 egg group?

I am guessing then it all depends on the site we get our info from, but reason why I believe it is mostly Guardian Angels is also because Gardevoirs are protective of their trainers and will guard them no matter what. I think they should have added a male counterpart as well, but asexually or not, it still does not explain why is there already a baby when it hatches. It would mean it reproduces inside the egg, which is... somewhat confusing. I did hear that when Nintendo was working on Pokemon Gold and Silver, the baby Kangaskhan was going to be an official separate Pokemon called "Durosu". Supposedly it was shown in a magazine, but so far I have not found information of it besides a dA user claiming she saw it in the magazine. As for Eelektross, it is quite confusing. It is not a water type, yet it's based on a eel and lamprey. And the prevolution, Tynamo, looks a lot like a leech, yet it is no where with the bug Pokemon, so it is quite confusing.

I'd call it more anthro than furry talking about the physical look, yet as pokemon are something in between animals and "magical" creatures, we can say thay in theory they're furries. But I don't understand all the mess about that. I mean - this is stupid: anyone can have his/her opinion about furry/anthro/pokemon/alien/whatever you want.

But still, I don't think gardevoir are designed to be humans... Anyway - to me they're just cute and strong pokemon I love to have in my games ^^

Denial?

Furry is a fetish for anthopomorfic animals.

Gardevoir is an anthropomorfic pokémon.
In the pokémon universe, pokémons are the same as animals.
ERGO, gardevoir is an anthropomorfic animal. So she IS a furry.

Thinking by your logic: Avians and scallies shouldn't be furry.



What am I talking about? Logic on the internets?! I gotta be nuts...

She is on the human side of the Pokemon world, Ok.
But she is still a pokemon.
And pokemons are animals.
And she is anthropomorphic.
So she is an anthropomorphic animal.
Then she's a furry.

Eh, not really.

Not all pokemon are animals.

Ok, now a serious one: Explain the Hitmons. Hitmonlee's lack of a nose and mouth does not count.

1: Nearly everything living is under the kingdom of Animalia. Humans and other animals. In the pokemon world, unless there is a bacteria pokemon, they all go into the Animalia kingdom.

2: MissingNO. is a bug, not an actual pokemon.

3: I'm done. I don't even know why you replied to this comment. Frankly, I don't know why I replied...

1. Solosis and its family, plus the sentient plants and Ghost types with no animalia form. This is an actual question: do the sentient plants go under animalia or go under the one for plants?
2. Actually, some say MissingNO. was a placeholder or beta pokemon, thus making it count.
3. Can't even finish what you started? Too bad, that means you give up.

Its probably because that they are not humans and are just considered to be another type of creature of pokemon, but still that's not really much of an excuse. They can't become furries, only just become more anthropomorphize than they're already are.

i would call it a pokemon :XD: but it COULD fall under the category of anthromorphic, since its humanlike and whatever else, but with my idea of a 'furry' it wouldn't really be one
