What about Manimal? Rocket Raccoon? Cat from Outer Space? Groot? Cosmo? Meowth? Pokémon in general? The ghosts of the animals trapped inside of Mister Slave?

I don't think pokemon are animals. Otherwise Pokemon games are just glorified cockfighting simulators.

This part of the LoC is always fascinating to me. A topic can be the most straightforward thing ever "Talking Animals - Animals that talk" but once you start the ranking process you realize there are all of these grey areas. I don't think we've ever had a list where everyone just dives in without some clarifying question being asked.

Yep.

As for Pokemon, I say all are "animals" but they don't talk (outside of Meowth and... Mewtwo, I think) but just say their own names.

Nah, they are monsters. If you include pokemon, Count Dracula has to be a valid choice.
FINE

I don't know about you Linzoid but I don't wanna live in a world where Pokémon owners can abuse their Pokémon without any intervention by law enforcement.

It's right there in the title, "Pocket Monsters" ;)

Personally, I would say they have to be based on real life, non-human animals. So no Skeksis or Fraggles (sorry Jim Henson). Kermit the Frog would be okay though.

Yeah, I figure they should be earthly, real-life animals who are capable of verbal (That includes psychic) communication with human beings.

I'm on the fence when it comes to anthropomorphs.
