Pokémon food

Humans eating Pokémon
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.
