Pokémon eating other Pokémon
====Honey====
{{main|Honey}}
Featured in [[Generation IV]], Honey can be slathered onto a [[Honey treeTree]] to attract wild Pokémon. It works similarly to Pokéblocks in the Safari Zone; it can be placed in a specific location and will disappear (presumably eaten) after some time. However, onlyand onea Pokémon canmay be found on a honeythat tree forif onechecked Honeysoon slathered onto itenough. If used in [[tall grass]], it has the same effect as the move {{m|Sweet Scent}}. In the anime, {{an|Barry}} used this method to capturecatch his {{p|Heracross}}.
 
====Aprijuice====
[[File:Poké Puffs anime 2.png|thumb|220px|Poké Puffs in the anime]]
{{main|Poké Puff}}
Featured in [[Generation VI]], Poké Puffs are small cake-like confections that can be fed to Pokémon to increase their Affection. Poké Puffs are obtained by beating {{DL|Pokémon-Amie|minigames}} or received from visiting Pokémon. They come in the following flavors: Citrus, Mocha, Spice, Mint, and Sweet. In the anime, {{an|Serena}} often bakes Poké Puffs for the group's Pokémon.
 
====Poké Beans====
There are a variety of different kinds of Pokémon food in the [[Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series]], such as Apples, [[Gummi]]s, {{Berries}}, and [[Seed]]s. The effect of Gummis vary depending on the type of the Pokémon and have an effect on the consumer's [[IQ]], while Apples only fill up the {{DL|Statistic|belly}}. Berries cause many effects, such as restoring HP and removing [[status condition]]s. Seeds often cause special status ailments. All food have an effect on the belly and can be turned into drinks at [[Spinda's Café]].
 
[[File:MeowthEatApple.png|frame|200px|{{p|Meowth}} eating Pokémon food in the shapeform of an apple]]
 
====Apple-shaped Pokémon food====
In [[Pokémon Snap]], one of the few [[item]]s provided is Pokémon food in the shapeform of an apple. These are unlimited, and the {{player}} can throw them to the [[wild Pokémon]]. Many Pokémon will happily eat the food, and it can be used to lure them to a new spot since they may walk to where the food was thrown. A well-aimed throw may also hit the Pokémon, causing them to {{DL|Status condition|flinch}}, [[fainting|faint]], or become upset.
 
[[Professor Oak]] will provide the player with Pokémon food once the player obtains a total score of 14,000 points in the {{OBP|Pokémon Report|Pokémon Snap}}.
 
====Poké Snacks====
{{main|Poké Snacks (Japanese: '''ポケまんま''' ''Poké Cooked Rice'') are used in [[Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness]] to lure [[wild Pokémon]] to [[Poké Spot]]s. They look like slices of a yellow cake, with each slice being one-tenth of the cake. Up to ten can be placed at each Poké Spot.Snack}}
Poké Snacks are used in [[Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness]] to lure [[wild Pokémon]] to [[Poké Spot]]s. They look like slices of a yellow cake, with each slice being one-tenth of the cake. Up to ten can be placed at each Poké Spot.
 
The [[P★DA]] monitors the Poké Snacks at each Poké Spot, and will inform [[Michael]]the player how many are at each Poké Spot and when a wild Pokémon is eating them. If Michaelthe player doesn't return to the Poké Spot quickly, the wild Pokémon may have eaten all the Poké Snacks he had there.
 
Sometimes a {{p|Munchlax}} will appear at a Poké Spot. When this happens, its {{pkmn|Trainer}} will arrive, apologize, and give ten new Poké Snacks for any the Munchlax may have eaten. Other times, a {{p|Bonsly}} will appear, running away unless the player approaches it slowly. If it runs away, it will be seen at a different Poké Spot.
 
Poké Snacks can be purchased from Poké Marts for {{PDollar}}300 after the player talks to Duking in his house in Pyrite Town.

[[File:Pokémon food anime SM.png|thumb|280px|left|{{AP|Pikachu}} and his friends eating Pokémon food]]
[[File:Slowking eating.png|thumb|220px|A {{p|Slowking}} drinking milk from a {{wp|coconut}}]]
Pokémon food has appeared in the {{pkmn|anime}} as early as ''[[EP006|Clefairy and the Moon Stone]]'', aswhere it took on the appearance of asome sort of kibble. It is available for purchase in cans, as seen briefly in ''[[DP053|Tears For Fears!]]''. Several [[Pokémon Trainer]]s will make their own, especially {{tc|Pokémon Breeder}}s like {{an|Brock}}. It is shown to be suitable for [[human]] consumption, but the flavor is not always agreeable with humans, as shown by the fact that [[Seymour]] was able to eat it without any problem, but {{Ash}} tried some and reacted badly. Good Pokémon food tastes great to Pokémon, however.
 
Brock often offers his homemade Pokémon food to try to gain a Pokémon's trust if it seems to be unfriendly or scared, such as a baby {{p|Stantler}} in ''[[EP125|Little Big Horn]]'', and a {{TP|Brock|Mudkip}} in ''[[AG025|A Mudkip Mission]]'' which he caught after befriending. Most Pokémon are extremely fond of the food he makes, with the exception of a {{p|Jigglypuff}} in ''[[AG138|Rough, Tough Jigglypuff]]'' which outright refused it (although it's possible it realized it was a trap and refused to take the bait).
 
Pokémon are also known to consume food that is meant for people, such as [[rice ball]]s. In fact, some Pokémon, such as [[Madame Muchmoney's Snubbull]], loved to eat these more than anything else. As shown by {{OBP|Lucario|M08}}, [[Ash's Taillow]] and {{AP|Lapras}}, and {{MTR}}, Pokémon are also able to eat chocolate without any ill effects.
 
Some Pokémon also eat food which would not be eaten by humans, such as {{p|Aron}} and {{p|Lairon}}, who were shown eating the remains of the [[Megarig]] in the credits of ''[[M11|Giratina and the Sky Warrior]]''.
 
==Pokémon eating other Pokémon==
In the {{pkmn|games}}, Pokédex entries for many Pokémon often describe predator-prey relationships with other Pokémon.
* {{p|Pidgeotto}} and {{p|Crabrawler}} eat {{p|Exeggcute}}
* {{p|Pidgeot}} preys on {{p|Magikarp}} picked from near the surface of water
* {{p|Ekans}} eats the eggs of bird Pokémon including {{p|Pidgey}} and {{p|Spearow}}
* {{p|Kingler}}'s pincers allow it to prey on {{p|Shellder}} and {{p|Cloyster}}
* {{p|Omastar}}'s fangs allow it prey on {{p|Shellder}}
* {{p|Taillow}}, {{p|Swellow}}, and {{p|Starly}} prey on {{p|Wurmple}}
* {{p|Wingull}}, {{p| Pelipper}}, {{p|Wailmer}}, and {{p|Wailord}} eat {{p|Wishiwashi}}
* {{p|Starly}} eats the small ball on {{p|Cherubi}}'s stem
* {{p|Archeops}} preys on {{p|Omanyte}}
* {{p|Mandibuzz}} preys on {{p|Cubone}}
* {{p|Heatmor}} burns through {{p|Durant}}'s body to feed on them
* Unnamed bird Pokémon prey on {{p|Scatterbug}} and {{p|Spewpa}}
* {{p|Toucannon}} and other unspecified bird Pokémon eat {{p|Bounsweet}}
* {{p|Mareanie}} and {{p|Toxapex}} eat the branches of coral on {{p|Corsola}}'s head
<!--Do not add Grimer or Muk preying on Trubbish or Garbodor-->
 
{{p|Arbok}},=== {{p|Kabutops}}, {{p|Aerodactyl}}, {{p|Spinarak}}, {{p|Ariados}}, {{p|Lanturn}}, {{p|Huntail}}, and {{p|Gorebyss}} are all knownKnown predatory Pokémon, though it is unclear what they preyrelation on.===
Although many Pokémon species are confirmed to be either a predator or prey to other species, there are few conformed relations.

[[Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness]] also touches on the predator-prey relationship between {{p|Swellow}} and {{p|Wurmple}}, with Wurmple of [[Team|Team Tasty]] worrying that Swellow, its teammate, will eat it. In [[Pokémon Snap]], several Meowth can also be seen chasing {{p|Pidgey}} at various points on the [[Pokémon Island Beach|Beach]]. Near the end of the course, one can be witnessed lurking around a Pidgey nest before it is {{m|Gust|attacked}} by the Pidgey which roost there.
Meat is often shown in the {{pkmn|anime}}, but while it has never been directly shown to come from Pokémon, no other food source has yet been explained. It is known that some Pokémon produce edible foods and by-products such as milk, nuts and fruit. These can be safely harvested with little or no harm or discomfort to the Pokémon. However, it has been mentioned that some Pokémon are hunted and used for their meat: {{p|Farfetch'd}} in particular are noted for making a good meal, especially when cooked with leek, and were nearly hunted to extinction because of this, ultimately leading to their rareness.
 
During a story arc within the [[Gen II]] games and their remakes, the newly reformed Team Rocket begin stealing {{p|Slowpoke}}, cutting off their [[Valuable item#Slowpoke Tail|tails]] and then selling them as a rare delicacy. It is indicated that the tail is not eaten, but is sucked or lightly chewed on; similar to the manner in which a person would enjoy {{wp|honeysuckle}}. This is also mentioned in the [[Slowpoke Song]], wherein it is implied that this is most common among children. In the [[Alola]] region, Slowpoke tails simply fall off and are used in many Alolan dishes. However, the tails need to be dried and then simmered in a salty stew in order to be properly edible. Many products are made from Slowpoke tails, which are show up when examining the shelves at the [[Thrifty Megamart]].
 
{{p|Sharpedo}}'s dorsal fin was a historically prized delicacy, overfishing nearly brought it to the brink of extinction.
In ''[[EP016|Pokémon Shipwreck]]'', Ash and friends, along with Team Rocket are stranded in the middle of the ocean without food. Eventually, due to their hunger and the dire nature of their situation, Ash and Brock began to discuss and fantasize about eating {{DL|List of Pokémon temporarily owned by the Team Rocket trio|Gyarados|James's Magikarp}}. Unfortunately for them and {{TR|Meowth}} in particular, Magikarp's body composition renders it nearly inedible. Misty elaborates on this, stating that Magikarp are nothing more than scale and bone, thus there would be little sustenance obtained.
 
It is possible, based on wording used in {{p|Cherubi}}'s Pokédex entry, that humans, not just Pokémon have eaten Cherubi's ball-like appendage before. Also, according to its {{game|Black and White|s|Pokémon Black 2 and White 2|2}} Pokédex entry, {{p|Basculin}} are remarkably tasty, indicating humans have eaten them as well. [[Pokémon Gold and Silver Versions|Pokémon Silver]]'s entry states that {{p|Seadra}}'s fins and bones are used in herbal medicine. According to [[Pokémon Sun and Moon Versions|Pokémon Moon]]'s {{p|Crabrawler}}'s entry, its pincers aren't meaty, but rich in nutrients and considered delicious. [[Crawdaunt]]'s enrty in [[Ultra Moon]] says that its claws aren't delicious at all in contrary to Crabrawler and [[Clauncher]]'s.
 
===Food produced by Pokémon===
* {{p|Miltank}} produce {{DL|Drink|Moomoo Milk}} which can be bought in the games and used as a healing item. It is stated in both the games and the anime to be both nutritious and delicious. It is also stated in the games that it is said kids who drink it will become hearty, healthy adults. In the anime, groups of Miltank are often kept to produce the milk not only for drinking, but also for the milk used to make dairy products as part of a business. In ''[[XY053|A Race for Home!]]'', it has been shown that milk made by {{p|Skiddo}} are also used to make dairy products such as cheese and soft-serve ice cream.
* {{p|Combee}} and {{p|Vespiquen}} gather nectar from flowers to produce [[Honey]] which is savored by various species of Pokémon, such as {{p|Mothim}} who steal it.
* The black ink spitted by {{p|Octillery}} is used for cooking.
 
==Dietary change==
[[File:Pokemonfood.png|thumb|right|160px|Fossilized seed remains of Aerodactyl's favorite food in ancient times]]
Over timeOvertime, most mention of Pokémon being eaten by either Humanshumans or Pokémon in any manner has become increasingly rare. This may be due to moral issues; as the anime and games progressed, Pokémon became seemingly more human-like. This included displaying individual personalities, human mannerisms, and complex emotions. In most cultures and societies, the idea of human beings eating each other is strictly taboo, so much so that even the idea of fictional creatures eating one another would seem equally cannibalistic if they possessed any human qualities.
 
Some Pokémon have even been given new dietary habits, possibly in an attempt to downplay any predatory behaviors. An example of this would be {{p|Aerodactyl}}, which was originally suggested to be {{wp|carnivore|carnivorous}}, but is later shown to eat fruit. In the [[original series]], Ash's Pokédex states "Its hard fangs suggest it might have been a carnivore. Its sharp claws were probably used to capture prey." Even in the games, Aerodactyl's Pokédex entries mention it tearing the throats out of its enemies. In ''[[EP046|Attack of the Prehistoric Pokémon]]'', Aerodactyl was even shown going for Ash's throat. However, in ''[[SS015|Putting the Air Back in Aerodactyl!]]'', the fossilized Aerodactyl egg {{Gary}} used to resurrect the Pokémon was found near fossilized seed remains. After Aerodactyl escaped, it was only calmed down when fed a pear-like fruit that was a similar DNA match to the seeds. This would imply that Aerodactyl regularly fed on the fruit, implying that it was an {{wp|herbivore}} or an {{wp|omnivore}}.
