On Reddit Wednesday morning, there was a photo apparently uploaded to Facebook by a restaurant taking the Pokémon Go craze and incorporating it into their recipes.

The comments section immediately turned to the question, if Pokémon were real, would people eat them?

According to Reddit comments: yes. "I just always assumed there were non fighting animals that served the whole purpose of being food," said one.

According to food magazine Modern Farmer, it's not just real life humans who would consider eating them. "Simply put, it is a fact that people eat Pokémon," in the show and game universe, they write in an article called "The Food Politics of Pokémon."
