If some Pokemon species are so smart, why don't they have their own civilizations, infrastructures, and economies just for themselves? Why are they just randomly wandering around in the wild? Especially the ones that have powerful manipulation or matter production/assembly abilities.
They do and you just don't see them. The stragglers you catch are wild ones like how some humans live in the woods.
Don't Clefairys have their own societies and rituals
Are you basing that on the S1 anime or something else?
It happens in one of the manga too
They have a little moon dance ritual in GSC and Legends Arceus
>If some Pokemon species are so smart, why don't they have their own civilizations, infrastructures, and economies just for themselves?
because they saw how it turned out for humans and rightfully decided against it
Because they have super powers, you idiot. It's the same reason most worlds with magic tend to stagnate. Couple that with how their very nature requires them to bond with humans to reach their full potential, it's pretty obvious why they just don't care about that sort of shit.
Super powers would make progress increase, not decrease though. If you mean how the settings look for such stories, the reason most worlds with magic tend to stagnate is that creators prefer fantastical settings over mundane ones for the sake of escapism.
I don't think you understand just how many things would never come into being if our ancestors had super powers/magic.
Considering we're talking about a hypothetical and you're not from an alternate timeline where such a thing happened, it's pretty safe to say you don't understand that quantity either.
Only in a hypothetical that doesn't follow logic, which is not what's being argued here. Try harder.
Logic is not on your side, you're only assuming it is. It doesn't help your case at all you slapped a goalpost gif on your post when it has no rhyme nor reason here, just adds to the pseudo-intellectual label you're building for yourself.
>why don’t they build societies that fuel unnatural gluttonous materialistic consumption when they could be content with what they have and be happy
Many Pokemon are already unnatural to begin with.
good job pointing out something that wasn’t the point of that message, truly the hallmark of human intelligence
Your message is coming from a flawed premise, which is why I brought attention there instead of where you were trying to go with it.
Get off the internet and go live naked in the woods then gay, but we both know you aren't going to because the people that spew shit like this are always just pseuds posturing
Should I read Chainsaw Man?
It's a pretty fast-paced and a quick read so yeah, it's a fun ride.
Sure, it's pretty entertaining. Quick read too.
too smart to live in a society, something something joker
Only humans have four fingers and a thumb, which is a prerequisite to building society
I mean some Pokemon have telekinesis which is better than a human hand.
Demonstrably untrue, since they don't have their own societies
